WII!!!!!!!!!!!! part 2

here are a few shots of me playing the wii. we only played it for about a half hour that night because we were so exhausted from waiting in line for 24 hours before with very little sleep. so, after a short session of fun, we totally crashed out and slept the following 11 hours...

WII!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! part 1

after we got back from buying a wii, the guys and i figured we should document this monumentous event. what follows are the pictures of the purchase of the wii: she's a beauty, huh?
needless to say, i am fairly excited...
this was the number i was in line. there were only eight available, so i got pretty lucky
the contents layed out


i finally figured out how to get pictures from my old digital camera onto my computer (thanks a ton to jeffry lee), so i figured i should post what ive got.

each year i decorate my classroom. i try to do something that i think is cool, after all, im going to be looking at it for the rest of the year... a couple years ago i put up characters from the comic book 'bone', last year i put up all kinds of video game characters (needless to say, they were all nintendo based...). this year i decided to go for superheros. here are a few pictures of what i made.
