As a registered Wii owner, I received an email from Nintendo telling me that I can get a free Wii jacket for my Wii controllers. As the email said, “The Wii Remote Jacket provides cushioning for the Wii Remote for people who might accidentally throw or drop their Wii Remotes while playing games.”
I have to say that throwing or dropping the controller has not been an issue, but banging it into the coffee table has been– we don’t really have enough room in the living room for optimal Wii-ing. So I don’t know who’s throwing or dropping all of these controllers.
Speaking of Wii-ing: we haven’t been playing much, I think just because this is such the busy time of year for everyone– even quasi-sabbatical boy me– and we just haven’t had the time or desire. Last night Annette was teaching, so it was just me and Will. At first, I thought we were going to Wii. Then he said he wanted to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which we’ve been working our way through for a few weeks now. Then Goosebumps came on and that became the choice. Maybe he was too pooped to Wii.
Since I have a cold this morning and am in no mood to go to the gym, perhaps a little Wii is in my near future….
