Topic: anniversary fun
Len and I bought a Wii for our third anniversary. We figured it would not only be fun to do together, but also would help us get some exercise. It is one of the best things we have ever bought ourselves. It comes with some very basic games and we got the sport pack that includes bowling and tennis and golf and basball. Now we are locked in a head to head bowling competition and we are both pretty darn good if I say so myself (ranked pro after 3 weeks) typically in the 150-220 range. And the first weekend, we bowled about 30 games and then took 2 days to recover because you do make the same movements and pull the same muscles as if you were really playing. Now, in my very limited free time, I am playing Mario galaxy. The tennis is a lot of fun too, baseball's not bad, billards are great, we both suck big time at golf. This weekend I am giving a talk tomorrow and Len is heading off the Rock to hear Robert Pinsky at our old venue Poetribe (www.poetribe.org). It's been a busy and stressful week, but spring is right around the cover!
