So the big hit gift of the Christmas season was the free download StepMania game that I tricked out with a dance pad and PS2 to USB adaptor shipped straight from Taiwan.
Because I’ll be darned if I’m going to spend $300 on a “game system” (then another 40 on the dance pad and 50 or whatever for the game itself – how is that a system?) to get the official Dance Dance Revolution when doing it my way costs 30 bucks and you can import your own favorite songs and choreograph your own dance steps to them. Chalk up another point for being cheap.
After two straight days of dancing fool-ery I decided to give us all a break and took C to the MAG to see the Georgia O’Keefe exhibit before it goes away. I’d been running that morning (I really want to do a 5K in under 30 minutes this year, so I’ve been upping my mileage…) so the two of us were kind of limping around the museum. C said just one leg was sore after the first day of StepMania, but after the second day, both were kind of lame. She wanted me to fetch her a wheelchair to get around in, and idea I quickly nixed. Then the guy in line behind us said I should do it – we might get in quicker if we could play on the sympathy of the line wardens. Nah, we both had to tough it out.
