Friday Fun! (Visit to VT, Gal Pals, Wii)

Although the reason for my visit home last weekend was sad, I had a wonderful time getting to see my dad’s side of the family mostly together for a change.  My aunts, uncles, and cousins were all wonderful, although it’d been so many years that I did shock a few by having beer at the wake.  Hah!  Apparently, me being 23 snuck up on them.  I also got to see my nephew, who is now talking in complete sentences.  I was shocked at how well he remembers me, as well as at how much time he wanted to spend with me.  It was fun!  Apparently, I like toddlers.  Who knew.  I also got to meet my niece for the first time.  She’s got her daddy’s red hair, so she’s bound to be a bundle of trouble. 😉  Really, though, she’s looking quite good for all the time she had to spend in intensive care at first.

Back in Boston, I hung out with my ever-lovely gal pals, Nina and E.  I, shockingly, got to introduce them to the infamous Telephone music video, which they naturally fell in love with.  Bonding occurred over Thai food, and Nina sent me off with a bottle of vodka.  The gal knows me so well.  🙂  Meanwhile, all three of my herb plants came up and seem to be doing relatively well. *fingers crossed*  Also making an appearance is the seedlings from the mystery seeds I got from Old Navy.  I have no idea what flower it’s going to be.  We shall see.  I’ve been playing my way through wii’s Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess.  It’s the furthest I’ve ever made it in that type of game.  I will say, getting to swipe the wiimote in the air and having it kill troll things on the screen is AWESOME.  I think if I ever actually manage to defeat this, I’ll have to try another game where I get to wave my arms around and kill things.

Happy weekends, everyone!  Here’s hoping the gorgeous weather holds out!

    Sadly there aren’t enough of those games, but the ones that exist are generally awesome. Okami and No More Heroes.

      By the time I’m done, that type of game is bound to be old news….or at least have many more games to pick from, lol.
      If not though, I know where I can borrow a copy of No More Heroes 2. 😉

    I’m glad to hear your niece is well. I gave up on video games quite a whole ago if it isn’t Mario Karts I am atrociously bad at them…I have only finished one game and that was the first Spyro on the old skool Play Station 1 haha.

      Thanks, Jessica. I think anyone can enjoy playing videogames, but sometimes it takes a bit of time to find the game to match the person. (Of course, I tend to think that about reading as well…..maybe this is just one instance where I’m optimistic, lol).
