Won’t you join my Mii parade?

Herro?  Any brody out there?

Herro? Any brody out there?

Well, it took a little doing last night, but I finally connected my Wii Fit.  The first complaint I have is the raiser pads for thick carpet.  They DO NOT clip on easily, or stay in place once on.  That is a huge and silly design flaw.  The second issue I have is where the synch button is located (it’s uncer the battery cover underneath the unit).  I think it should have been located at least on one of the sides for easier access.

I’ll comment on the BMI, initial testing, and Wii age later.  It’s not pretty.

But this process gave me a chance to copy down my Wii console number to share with friends.  I’d like YOU to join my Mii parade.  Please register my number: 7295-9370-9434-0255 as a friend, if you feel so inclined, in your Wii Message Board and let’s get our Mii Parade’s going.

I’m also adding my number to the left column here under my XBOX 360 gamer tag.

Wii’re here.

Finally, it’s here.  Persistence paid off.

Today at about 10:07am PST, I was able to secure myself a Wii Fit for the non-blackmarketed, eBay speculatative price of $89.95. 

I was able to leave work for 10 minutes as the store is just down the street and they open at 10:00am.  They receive shipments on Mondays and Thursdays and so after the last six weeks or checking, they had three of them and I got my grubby little hands on one of them.

It’s actually kind of heavy in the box.  Anyway, it’ll be a surprise to my wife that I got a hold of one today out of the blue, and hopefully by the weekend I can begin to devote 15-20 minutes a few times a week for some in-home exercise that will help compliment the Lindora diet I’m currently on (BTW: I’ve lost 4 lbs in the first two weeks), though I cheated today with a chicken burrito, chips & salsa and a single fish taco for lunch….too many carbs.
