Wii are successful!

Well, putting out the word to find a wii has paid off. One of my kind clients called me with some great news and cute advice. He said " I heard from Santa, and he said, go out and buy some Wii games for your son". I was so excited that he found one and so grateful that he even searched. However, my son, who began helping me with my quest for Wii,
had been planning on camping out ( no tent) with many buddies. Even with his ecstatic joy of Mr. Client finding wii, he still asked if he could have the "experience" of the all nighter with his friends. And because Mr. Client said the wii would be delivered some time next week, and because I am a paranoid lunatic.....Well, Yes, We will have 2 wiis. The good thing about that is I know a few people who also expressed their kids desires for one, so I will hopefully help thrill another kid.

All this anticipation for granting this kids craving has been so distracting. I am hoping that now that my mind is clearer, I can focus on shopping & cooking for Christmas Eve, wrapping, cleaning, baking cookies and trying to make my clients look beautiful. I don't think there will be time for my roots or my much needed eyebrow waxing. So i will look a bit groucho as I am serving up my holiday dinner, maybe Santa can put a cigar in my stocking.

You got a wii! Wheeeeeee!!! No really, I didn't think that I wanted one, but after hearing all the rave reviews, I'm wanting a wii myself. Actually saw in the local Best Buy ad today that they were selling them.....only 15, but it was 10 a.m. when I read the paper. I didn't even bother going to BB to see if they had any left. My guess is that your son and his friends bought them all! :) I'm sure your son will love the wii games. Which ones did you get him?

Remind him to keep his exhuberance down. I've heard of the controllers and nunchucks (spelling?) flying out of hands and breaking screens.

Oh, I'm so far behind the times with these new games. And I'm a little grateful that I don't have to find out! :)

Thanks for visiting my blog. Yes, the memory thing, yikes!

I'd like to help you with the sidebar - it's been a long learning curve for me too. There was a lot of swearing going on in my house as I set up my blog. If you want you can email me and I'll try to explain the best I can. It's not too hard, just a little time consuming.

Hi Lucy,
Thought you'd get a kick out of a forward that a friend sent that was one of George Carlin's New Rules for 2007:

Ladies, leave your eyebrows alone. Here's how much men care about your eyebrows: do you have two of them? Okay, we're done.

So glad your Wii search is over. Wishing you some time to relax in between the holiday rush of clients, baking and general nutsyness.

What a nice client!
And I'm sure you have plenty of friends whom you could make happy when you unload your second wii.
