i think wii have a problem

library conference - day 1
went to a cocktail party and schmoozed. met a woman from VOYA (voice of youth advocates) magazine and told her how much i love VOYA and how much i miss my VOYA subscription because it's so expensive and my library doesn't subscribe. she immediately asked me to become a reviewer. sweet.
then i ran into both the past and present directors of youth services for nassau county. schmoozed them up and wound up taking a member of their group to the YALSA Gaming Extravaganza. who doesn't love an extravaganza?! i ask you.
then at the extravaganza i met up with some of my old pals from hell's library. i love them gals. then i played mario cart double dash, guitar hero III, wii bowling, wii tennis, and dance dance revolution. hopefully the gals and i will meet up tomorrow night as well.
so it has been a very productive first day. and i feel so popular running into all these people. yay library conferences! the only problem is that i feel really sore. at first i thought it was from the combination of boxing AND doing boot camp last night (i had to punch some stuff yesterday. you understand). but now i realize the soreness is only in my right shoulder and the right side of my back. i played wii right-handed. i have sustained a wii injury. ouch. i need to go stretch a little. but damned, was that wii fun. tennis is my favorite.

Am I strange that I keep hoping your ACRONYMS (no I'm not totally retarded...) have a Jew reference? That's 2 for 2 that have nothing to do with the chosen people. (VOYA and YALSA)

Yay reviewer! Does that come with a complimentary subscription?

Better stretch before AND after wii-ing, missy!

if i become a reviewer i will get a half price subscription.

it is too bad these acronyms aren't more jewish. but maybe we could start using them in a jewish context and see if it catches on. it would look something like this: "oy voya! this fakakta yalsa! it'll be the end of me!"
