Wii Online is fun stuff.

Alright, alright, I admit, It's not like it's completely new. But I still love doing it.

Turning on that Wii Console and heading online to see some of my favorite sites on the big TV screen. . . it's an amazing feeling!

But I haven't done it in awhile, and I decided to hop on and try a few things. First thing I tried? Twittering on the Wii!

As you can all see (even if you don't follow me on twitter), Twittering on TV is fun!

Although the obvious downside is that I have to search and peck to find what letter or key I'm looking for. That number one hand there runs around typing for you, it'd be easier to just hop on the computer and twitter yourself!

But for those days when there's someone else on the real computer or when your computer is down but the internet is still working, Twittering on the Wii works just fine!

Next Stop? Over to some of my favorite Med-Blogs! I search and pecked my way to Google, and found Doc A.!

Such a useful search engine!

Also- I laughed out loud when I saw what post it put on the front page of google for his blog.

Looks like I'm not the only one with a "pee post"!

Once I clicked on the link, and the Wii dropped me into the Doc A blogiverse, I noticed a flaw in the system!

I can't watch the video posts!

(But I can wave at my reflection in the black box where the video post is supposed to go!)

And from this shot, you can all notice our extra-ordinarily messy entertainment system, sorry mom!

From there, pointed and clicked my way over to Vijay's Place.

(I wish I had remembered that Doc A had a link there before I went through the painfully time-wasting search and peck process!)

Once it looked like everything worked over there on the wii- (I'm sure it's because you use firefox, Vijay. Because firefox, as everyone knows, is magical ;o) )

I felt like combining the page zoom and the hand shaped pointer to make myself laugh. The best place to do that?

Why, over at Val's blog of course! Onward to Revolution Health hooo!!!
Oh silly pointer! Stop picking Val's nose! I'm sure she wouldn't appreciate that at all!

(Side note: Lookit how pretty Val is! Even with a hand shaped pointer pretending to pick her nose!)

lol. Great minds think alike. We bought a new TV last week and the first thing I did was hook it up to my laptop so I could tweet on the big screen.
