Just Dance

We went out on a limb and got Samantha another video game for her birthday.  She loves to play Mario Kart Wii, but I’d rather she not sit and play video games all afternoon.  Mario Kart, by the way, is what brought this recent obsession with everything Mario.  Brian suggested the game Just Dance.

Oh boy.

Words cannot describe how she squealed with delight at the first time she danced alongside the game.  I can’t say I’m too thrilled about her dancing to K$sha, Nicki Minaj, or (I can’t believe) her favorite, Psy.  She loves to play, and I love that it gets her moving.  It’s a win-win.

The first night we played, we all had to get some of that action.  The best song for all 4 of us to dance with is Ghostbusters.  That’s better.  🙂



I can’t play with the family too often.  I always win.  I’m good like that.


I’m Addicted to Angry Birds

Thanks a lot Alex.  Last year at the annual Betbeze Beach vacation, Alex asked me if I had played “mad birds”.  I got the demo and about three minutes later I was hooked.

So far, I have the following versions:

  • Angry Birds FREE
  • Angry Birds
  • Angry Birds HD FREE
  • Angry Birds HD
  • Angry Birds Seasons FREE
  • Angry Birds Seasons HD FREE
  • Angry Birds Seasons HD
  • Angry Birds Rio FREE
  • Angry Birds Rio
  • Angry Birds Rio HD FREE

In case you’re counting, I’ve purchased four different versions of the game.

I’m on a quest to get three stars on every level and all of those golden eggs and stars.

In case you’re not convinced I’m addicted, I’m currently rocking out to the Angry Birds Rio Theme Song.  At first I plugged my computer speakers into my iPhone and let it sit on the initial screen just to listen.  Then I found a YouTube video that had the music.  In the comments, someone left a link to an MP3 download of the theme.  It’s now in my iTunes on repeat one mode.  🙂

Give it a listen, it’s awesome.  The music in the Seasons game is good too.
