Why Can’t Wii Be Friends?

Happy New Year! As with last year, I’m back to offer my readers insight into my New Years Resolutions, just like last year (incidentally, two days late once again). This year, I’ve resolved to make more friends - of the Wii variety, that is.

And really, kudoz to Nintendo to making the process as complex and cumbersome as they could envision. I won’t go on my social networking rant again, but again I urge simplicity. For the Nintendo Wii, the process involves two users hunting through different modules to find your handy 16 digit Wii number, which you can give to a friend. Ideally, when the friend enters that number, he or she could also enter a message that you could then confirm to be friends. After all, that’s what happens when you register a friend’s email address. Instead, I then have to enter my friend’s handy 16 digit number. Ten minutes later, we’re connected. What a pain.

But this will not deter me from seeking out Wii friends!! Wii owners, email me your Wii numbers! And, if anyone knows Stephen Colbert’s Wii number, email me that too. I’m seeking to be his Wii friend so I can see him and Nancy Pelosi in my Mii parade.

The conversation continues...

    That’s nothing compared to the witty email subject lines that I’m getting in response to this blog entry. Keep ‘em coming!

    I’m also still waiting to hear from Stephen Colbert. I’m only 4 degrees from Kevin Bacon so I can’t be that far from Stephen Colbert. I want to be his Wii friend!!!
