|You did WHAT? (as he grips the TV stand for dear life)|

Tonight, instead of watching TV, Tom and I broke out the Wii from downstairs to play some tanks (you know that one from Wii Play?). This is sad, but after a rousing tanks game, some Wii Tennis, and bowling with a lot of trash talking (I won), Tom looked at me and said "I felt like we had a date tonight!" And I agreed--"Me too!" Poor us, you are thinking. Wii on a Sunday classified as a date? I know, I know, lame balls over here, but you know what?
Little things like ditching the TV really get you to spend more quality time together (even if some of that time is spent arguing over board game rules--who, us?) Tom and I get competitive when it comes to any kind of game. After we finished playing that duck shooting game I had white knuckles and sore arm muscles. It gets serious up in here (and also hilarious). You can only argue so long that his Scattergory word doesn't count before breaking into ab muscle spasm-ing laughter.
Who else has gotten rid of cable? Have you considered it? Are we the only weirdos out there?
