Really, I Meant To…

I had every intention of adding a new skin, launching my new book blog, not to mention cleaning the house, but alas, I have been waylaid by the seductive temptress known as Nintendo. Kevin has only seen me emerge from the office to procure groceries and to cook dinner (hey–at least I did that. I cannot begin to tell you how much I needed a weekend of doing absolutely nothing productive whatsoever, and it looks like I got my wish. Now my only problem is figuring out how I’m going to survive the work week with Zelda on the brain. And yes, I realize that I am an adult who shouldn’t be squandering her time on such minutiae, but if you play it, you’ll understand. It was a staple in my youth, and it continues to serve me well. Plus, I’m fairly certain that 48 straight hours of a relatively non-violent video game is a hell of a lot healthier than having one’s eyeballs glued to CNN. Unfortunately for me, it’s almost bedtime, so saving Hyrule from the evil Ganondorf will have to wait for another day. Damn. I just realized what a dork I am. Oh well.

    Oh my, Zelda… the Zelda I played when I was going through my divorce I actually wore a blister on my thumb.. I would play for days.. thankfully I am ambidextrious, errr… use both hands or thumbs in this case… it came with the first and only Nintendo we have. A friend gave it to us in 1996 it has a gun with a duck hunt game and a mat with a jumping/running game.

    I so very much loved that version. And Duck Hunt was the best! (except when the gun stopped working and you had to be right up against the TV screen for it to work….)Ahhhhh, those were the days.
