Still not dead: the countdown continues

I suppose it isn't the most positive reinforcement in the world to suggest counting off the days I'm not dead as opposed to the days I'm still alive. Or is there any difference. Guess it's one of those glass is half full versus half empty things.

Regardless, I'm sure most of you (and I use the royal you, here) have been on pins and needles wondering if my truck fit into the garage. Well, I have a one word answer: barely. The geniuses who built this house assumed that that most people would be driving Cooper Mini's or golf carts. It's not as if I drive a monster truck. It's a Nissan Frontier. As it is, I have just about about 8 inches clearance in front of the truck once it's in the garage. Good thing I'm on a diet.

Let's see, what else happened today. Oh, I bought some new games for my Gameboy. These are classic games like Centipede, Ms. Pacman, Galaga, Battlezone. These are games I can understand. It's not like my Playstation 2. Most of those games require dexterity and the ability to look for hidden things. I personally have no patience for any game that is more complicated than simply shooting everything that moves.

Not that I condone violence, just violent video games.

But seriously, I'm not used to these two day weekends. Good thing next weekend is Martin Luther King's birthday and we get another three day one.

In the meantime, life goes on...one blog entry at a time.

Ciao.

YEAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was very worried about Your truck fitting!!! Is so very happy you fit!! Well I am coming over to visit you and your gameboy because I just LOVE Galaga. OMG the best video game EVER!!! I bought this thing that plugs directly into the television and you can play the classic games it has Galaga. I rock and can beat the kids unmercifully in it. They say it is because I am old and the game is old. LAUGHSSSSSSSSSSSS Have a great week!!!

We have that one for our gameboy. I bought it for Pole Position and Galaga. I swear I can smell PoJo's every time I play.

Tim, of two genders, WE are the ones able to visualize objects in three dimensional space, so it stands to reason we'd be able to fit a large vehicle into a small garage. Yea, we might have to climb thru the damn windows to get into it, but we got it in there, didn't we?

But those of us content with the driveway instead see a cool workshop in that space.......hehe.

Yea, most of my video games involve killing things, which probably explains why the military is so attracted to computerization.

See you next post.

Thanks Cherish, Now let's see if the truck will ever leave the garage. And I can't tell you how many quarters I plugged into Galaga when it was first popular. Now it is mine for free. Yawn...

R. Where you been son? Aw, PoJo's. I used to take you there because I could entertain you for an hour with a handfull of nickels.

the Michael,I knew it would fit. It's all the other crap in the garage I'm doubtful about.

Well Gina, I'm impressed. Are these vehicles stacked on top of each other?

And Cherish, Don't worry. I also keep chickens and a few goats in the garage.
