Some fun videos to go along with the 'Why every guy should buy their girlfriend WiiFit' for Friday! I like cracking open a beer and just watching my girlfriend use WiiFit

Mostly safe for work:

I like the URL of the third one. Nothing like hiding the content in the address.

I see that Best Buy is gonna have these in the ad this weekend, my wife really wants one so I am gonna try for one. Any BB employees have an idea how fast these will go? If I get in line at 10:30 is early enough or too late?

Last time I knew BB was going to have them, I had my gf go when they opened. There wasn't much of a wait for them. You might want to get there a few minutes before it opened though. That was my experience 3 months ago.

You might just call around and check your local Blockbusters with a Game Rush inside. I was at my neighborhood location on Tuesday night and they had one just sitting there behind the counter. Might save you some hassle.

I finally grabbed a copy on lunch break today. I went in and looked where they had their price tag, didn't see it, was about to leave, but I needed Kitty Litter, so I walked back past electronics and saw 2 copies sitting at their little desk.

Got to play for about 45 minutes tonight, some of the balance feels off, but that's probably because I've got some bad posture. This really shows in the yoga poses. The one where you hold your leg out in front sent me all over the place.

My BMI on the other hand is good, right at 22.

I do love me some hula hooping.

My Target had a couple Wii Fit's still there around noon today. Sadly I ordered one of the bundles off Walmart last week with a bunch of other crap

That's usually my tendency too, but I've used it almost every day, usually at least 30 minutes a day (although I started much slower). Yesterday was my 80th day using it. It helps that I got my wife doing it too, I might have quit by now otherwise.

I have been using this now for 2 weeks. I lost 5 lbs. My abs are still flabby, but my ankles are like 4 times bigger.
