I headed over to electronics and to my surprise and delight, they had almost a dozen Wii locked in a glass case. I've NEVER seen a Wii box so I wouldn't know what it would look like. So I peered closer and kneeled down to where they were stowed and inspected them. Are they the remotes? It's such a small box. It can't be? We asked the clerk if those were the Wii consoles and he said yes! We just received the delivery this morning and there were already a line of people at 6am. So the ones who wanted them already bought them. eBay I was thinking, but nah.
So we got the console and an extra remote and nunchuck. Neil and I spent most of the day boxing (Neil sucked), playing golf (even), tennis (Neil sucked), Bowling, (I sucked), and baseball ( my arm hurts now).
We went to Blockbuster and rented Zelda, SpiderMan 3, and Barnyard.
I'm not a teenager that can maneuver these joysticks like I was born with them, then again, I never could. But it's tedious, repetitive, and I got bored really quickly.
I called Danny to come over to play but he was sick.
Ok, oK..the best part of Wii...making your own Mii (avatar?) Oh I wish I could post it...I'll take a digi pic later and post our Mii's.
Hiram...what games do you have that's worth playing?

Neil came home with a present. They had these swirl versions at another Nordstrom.
Visit their website. I didn't realize they had just a big collection and selection. I'm gonna see if Neil is interested in the Diabetic version. They are really comfy, light, bacterial and odor resistant!

I returned my scooter :( and I'm using a walking cane. They had fancy ones that had shock absorbers and ergonomic handles and flames on the stick. I opted for the cheapest one as I will only be using it for a few weeks if that.
Remember sticking a knife or fork down the toaster to dislodge toast when you were a kid. Was I the only dumbass? Remember that shock. Well, random waves of electricity shoots up from my foot when I walk. I'm sure it's normal as the connective tissue and tendons are loosening up and pinching nerves left and right after 6 weeks of no use.

Some good news, I actually walked using only 1 crutch. Now let's see how I fare tomorrow morning.

Maroon 5's new album is out. I'm tempted to get it.

Maybe because I tried it sometime after my surgery and I was having stomach issues but I wasn't keen on this. What you say? How can I not love toasted coconut and sesame!? Certain parts of it was just so gooey!
I'll give it another try some other time.
Back to Bubble Tea. I had a Lavender Bubble Tea. Interesting. I tried lavender soda water and it was really good!

I really hope I can start walking by mid June.
Max is sooooooooooo smart (for a bird). He has this plastic circle toy that has holes in it. There's a bell inside that is bigger than the hole so as hard as he tries, he can't get it out. Well, he's decided to make his own toy. He's breaking up little pieces of wood from another chew toy and takes it over to the circle toy and pushes the wood pieces inside the top and takes them out from the bottom. Soooooooooo cute!

On our way home, I was dozing off and when I woke up, Neil was again and Gossip and we finally got our frozen taro bubble shake with extra tapioca. However, at this point, I was so sick of it, I had a few sips and it was all I could drink.
Topher Grace was ok, still had his 70s Show demeanor to his character.
I enjoyed the drama parts of the movie and the action was good but a lot of CGI. Wish there was a bit more intricate action sequences.
What was I thinking going to an Imax on crutches? I had to walk forever and then spiral down to the Imax screen and by then I was exhausted. I dreaded knowing that I had go the same route after the movie.
This is my new toy, Leg caddy. I put my broken leg on the cushion and wheel myself around. It's got a brake and steering. No shock absorbers. Although the pressure on my knee is atrocious! But it's fun and I should have taken this to the movie with me.

However, IMAX sucks cuz you can't buy tickets online like moviefone.com. They stop selling tickets online at 6pm for the next day's event and they're having issues with firefox, mac, explorer 7. Ummm...what else is there?
So tomorrow, maybe we'll have a nice breakfast and see a morning movie. Neil's been such a great support during this mess. Everything I ask no matter how many times, he does it. I know how irritating it can be, but it's nice to be able to ask w/out feeling guilty.
I've been adjusting my boot. Nate, it's not all that. Sure, I can take a shower but it's a bitch adjust this because they want my foot to lay completely flat on the boot but my heel keeps riding up. And changing socks is a pain! Some of the scar seeps and gets stuck to the socks and it hurts and bleeds a bit when I take the socks off.
Oh the genious designers of this boot, gotta love them. They have moisture wick. So it pulls sweat away and I've noticed that it pools under the boot and collects on the frame/heel. Yeah, it's gross. You'd be sweating too wearing a plastic and straps wrapped around your feet and leg. I'd be scared to think how nasty it would get if I was in Hawaii in hot humid weather.
So now I get a towel to soak up the moisture at night. It's not like a puddle!

So I took the bandages off. Half of them were falling off and icky and the doc said to pull them off after 4 days and it's been 5! Maybe it could be enhance with a cool tattoo design. Then again, I've always wanted a tattoo and I guess you should be careful what you ask for!
