I'd like to honor all of our past Presidents by dedicating my hangover to them this morning. My weekend has been pretty awesome thus far, though.
The worst thing that happened was when I hurt my lower back. I'm unsure if it was when I was benching at the gym or what, but my lower back hasn't felt this bad in a year. Hopefully I can figure it out without more physical therapy, but I guess we'll see.
Since my back was all jacked up, I decided to play the original Legend of Zelda to pass some time. I'm happy to report that I've passed the first four dungeons and the game is still quite awesome. I read that it is the 25th anniversary of its release this year! It's shocking to me that I was 4 or 5 when the game came out, but like I said, it has aged gracefully.
Sunday night I went to Katrina and John's where John and I started talking about the old NES and low and behold, John still has his old system. We played the following games:
- Ice Hockey - John as the USA beat my Poland team. I guess I should've taken all fat guys.
- RC Pro AM - This game is amazingly hard and addictive. Still awesome.
- Contra - Yeah, we beat the entire game... of course it took almost 90 lives each to do it.
- Pro Wrestling - Watch out for Amazon Man- he'll bite your head off!
It was a fun weekend. I can't believe I'm already the old man who believes that music and video games were much better "back in my day..." but BOTH WERE!
Enjoy the day off- hopefully your place of employment recognizes the greatness of our former Presidents like Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford.
