I've got blisters on me fingers!


Mark sauntered forth today and bought himself a Guitar Hero for the PlayStation2 his ex Greta gave us. Must admit, that little plastic guitar is a little addicting. You basically have to rock out to a bunch of songs by pressing one of the five "keys" and flicking a little strum thingie.

"I blew it out by going up!" Mark reports.

He's playing the Van Halen/Kinks song You Really Got me.

According to the legend of the game, the harder you rock, the bigger the arenas you get to play. I'm not sure what happens when you hit maximum rockoutedness. We're pretty far from there at the moment.

(Pause to take my turn)

"Man, you suck," Mark says. Everybody's a critic. He's right. I only got 69 percent of the notes to his 74.

"Watch out," he says, grabbing the guitar. "I'm going to blow this one out."

And so he does.

Looks like fun! Can I come over?

Now I really do have to come. I am not ashamed to admit that I have been known to hold on to the guitar while Christin tries to wrestle it away from me. I DO NOT share Guitar Hero well. I will fight for my right to PARTY!!!!!

p.s. I love my WHITE guitar!

p.p.s. If you guys come here -I will suspend my "no share" policy

One more thing - now I know why Mark hasn't been on the blog much lately - GH is addictive!

It is almost too much coolness to bear. I swear, this is my most gleeful holiday in many a year.

Let the holiday gaming marathon roll on!

How I wish I was there.

Ronelle:hi-larious!
