Wednesday Workout Report ("Crack That Whip" Edition)

It's been a while since I posted a Workout Report because, well, it's been a while since I did a workout. So tonight, in order to rectify that situation, I stopped at Best Buy on the way home and picked up Dance, Dance Revolution Ultramix 3, which laurie_robey and I have been eyeing ever since we noticed it had a song on it by They Might Be Giants. (You can imagine our "Squee!" when we discovered it also had Devo and The Clash on it, not to mention Ray Charles and "Butterfly," one of my big faves of DDR music that kailucidricwolf sent me.)

So we played about half an hour of it tonight, enough to work up a sweat anyway. Our new pads are also doing that "rear arrow not responding" BS. We're going to have to do some serious troubleshooting on this, or ship 'em back to the manufacturer in exchange for metal ones, something. I don't mind getting a bad score when I screw up -- that happens often enough. But I resent getting a bad score when I was right on the arrow and it just didn't notice!

When the pads are working, it's just about the most fun you can have without shocking the neighbors -- but when they're wonky, it's just irritating!

Anyway, hopefully this is the pebble that starts an avalanche of new Workout Report posts. Stay tuned!
