Ordinarily, I'd love to have a couple of days off with the Schmikester, but not when we're both sick. Each of us whining and miserable and trying to bribe the other to get up to fetch medicine, water, soup etc.
Buuuut, being stetched out on the couches for two days did inspire us a little bit. Mike realized that with our wireless internet, we can connect our Wii. This allows us to download old nintendo, super nintendo, nintendo 64 and sega games. We took a look and flipped through the choices...just to see our options.
I expect us to be declaring bankruptcy sometime next month. We spent about an hour going, "Ooooh! Look! They have (insert 1987 Nintendo title here)
Toejam & Earl. One of my favorites! I used to play this with Matt, so it has a lot of sentimental value on top of being quite entertaining to me.
The original Zelda. The one that started my love of all things Zelda. This was selected because I thought it would be something that we would both play. Mike later said that he probably won't ever play it, but that he wanted me to have it because he knew how much I love Zelda. He's always very thoughtful.
And Mike's selection. Blades of Steel. A game that he declares to be "the best hockey game of all time." Um...yeah. Whatever you say, Mikey. He's been practicing...he's a little rusty. He lost his first game in a shoot-out. After I teased him about losing he said, "I didn't think it was too bad for a game that I haven't played in 10 years!" I was like, "10?! Try 20, Mikey. We're old now."
I think we've both selected our next downloads. I'm going for one of the old Mario Bros. games, while Mike is probably going to download something called Tecmo Bowl? I dunno. Not one I ever played. I just know that when he saw it, he drooled down his chin a little bit. :D
But, for now, I suspect an early night lies ahead of us. Neither one of us is up to partying this weekend. I just want to feel human again before I have to head back to work on Monday. Wish me luck!
