Discovery/Late to the Game

Tonight, I discovered that the Gameboy color is NOT backlit and therefore I cannot play Pokemon Red in bed until I am ready to pass out. This is very sad.

For those of you who are facepalming wondering HOW did I NOT know that, let me explain. I was a "late blooming" gamer. Growing up I was a book/theater/tv show nerd. I never got into games. That was my brother's thing. Although I did enjoy playing donkey kong. And some games on the computer (dig dug and Carmen Sandiego mostly). But I did not have a personal gaming device until a (now ex) boyfriend bought me a DS. I still have it. Somewhere. I played some games on it but never got into it much. Til now.

The other day my boyfriend brought some old game systems and games for Coil 2 to play while he was in the hospital. Out of curiosity I picked up one and started playing Pokemon red. I am now a bit interested in seeing where this is going. I am not hating it as I thought I would.

I now want to give Legend of Zelda another try. My boyfriend may not fully realize what monster he may have created.

Also: getting a bedside light soon to fix this Gameboy at night dilemma.

There is an app for that

Wow. It has been over a year since I last blogged (here). I have downloaded the blogger app so lets see it that helps?

Currently my musings are on how much asthma sucks. Coil Two has been hospitalized for the last four nights and am in the midst of night five. Suuuuuuccccckkksss. A delivery of a laptop and access to Minecraft has helped. The SO left me an old gameboy and Pokemon red to play (I have just discover this. I am pretty sure he wants to see if I will react to this as I did with Bab 5. We shall see. We. Shall. See.

And with that I leave you to go find Gary and make him cry like the pussy we all know that little shit is.
