A Series of Unrelated Things

Today marks the midway point between the last day of school back in June and the first day of school coming up in August. For those of you who have not yet had your morning coffee or 12, that would mean that my summer vacation is officially half over. That's right, the time is just flying by- so if you wanted to try and book yourself some NPW time you best get your requests in soon. Once school starts up I will be inundated with French class, intramural sports, media council, and of course, major library action, and I will not have time for your paltry "fun".

In other news, you can all stop worrying for me: I have found a dress for the wedding. Of course, $90 later, and I still need to buy shoes and a bra that works with a halter top, but hey, my cousin only gets married once. I hope. Dammit, Gabe, you better only get married once!

Also a propos of nothing, The Boy has downloaded a Nintendo emulator to keep me busy while he's at work, and in turn I have rediscovered my love for the classic 1980's game, Maniac Mansion. Oh, LucasArts, how did you create the most genius of all video games? I mean, who wouldn't want to run around a crazy house with a purple tentacle, a radioactive pool, and a nuclear reactor in the basement? Actual quote from the game: "Ed, the meteor needs your hamster and the electric cattle prod." 'Nuff said.

One more tangent. I am totally starving right now. Just thought you should know.

does it have King's Quest 4 per chance? If so, I am coming over.

I can't even tell you how many hours were wasted away in my younger days playing Maniac Mansion. Nothing will ever beat Zombies Ate My Neighbors, however (another Lucas Arts classic).

Also: emulators = our friends. For serious.

Oh, and the MM sequel, Day of the Tentacle, was hot shit as well.

Oh, my God... Maniac Mansion defined my youth. So many different paths to take. Do you microwave the hamster? Drain the swimming pool? Have Sid or Razor play the piano? Man, I've got to get on that shit right now. Oh yeah, and... I don't do tablecloths.

I think MM is better than Zombies Ate My Neighbors, Ace, but to each his own.

There is most definitely King's Quest on there, I will check to see if they have 4.

Emulators are the true way to my heart. Oh, and koosa too.
