My Latest Obsession...

It's quite funny...this week's assignment over at Mama Kat's totally coincided with the post I was going to do - even if it hadn't been assignment day!

My prompts were:

1.) Describe your latest obsession.

2.) Ask a loved one to use 6 descriptive words to describe you and report your findings. How well do they know you?

3.) Who was your first bloggy friend? How did you find each other? Do you still correspond?

4.) Tell us about your pet! If you have a weird infatuation with your dog or cat we want to hear about it (or if they just plain drive you crazy)...but please don't compare them to children. It's just not the same.

And I knew the first one would be it.

My latest obsession is...

My mom was SUPER SUPER generous on Christmas and bought us a Wii. Then hubby and I decided we needed to try the latest craze...Guitar Hero. We bought it and started playing it. I SUCKED and got mad and pouted like I do when I am not good at any game. Yes, I am a sore loser.

We had some friends over the day we got it and I refused to even play in front of them, out of fear of total humiliation. If you haven't played it before, EVERYONE knows when you mess up. It's quite hilarious when others do it really bad...but when I do...it's not so funny (okay...it is now - at first it wasn't).

So...with practice and drinks - I have become decent at it! This game is SO addicting! It's rather sad that when you listen to the radio now, you can hear the guitar and you can picture those green, yellow and red dots. I am still on "easy" but one day, I may be able to advance to "medium".

But I must admit...I did have one night, after a few drinks, where I ROCKED! Proof is right here:

No...my streak isn't the 72 streak...but the 475!!! I just HAD to take a picture of that because that is just insane that I did that good! (Nevermind the other night I only had an 11 streak!).

So that is my latest obsession. I think before too long I will have carpal tunnel - and if I keep playing it for hours on end...I may OD on it since the room oddly moves around if you look away from the screen. It is crazy.

I am blogging from work so I don't have other pictures to share of me rocking out...but perhaps I will save them for tomorrow!

I don't have a Wii or Guitar Hero but I do have Rock Band and PS2 and I love it! Probably more than my kids. Drums are my favorite.
BTW- I came over from Mama Kat's. Great post.

My kids love Guitar Hero and Rock Band and they're so good. I need to practice when they're not home and then show 'em what for.

I love Guitar Hero on PS2. I have a PS3 now so we haven't played it on this system yet - but I loved it on my PS3. I even met the guy who plays the music. Like, the music you hear when your playing? I met him and his mom. I even have a guitar chip signed by him. ;) Wanna buy it? lol jp Does your hubs like it?

I've never played that game but my mom got a Wii for Christmas and I'm addicted to Super Paper Mario.

You are too funny!!! Paul and I would take pictures of our bowling scores on the camera and text my dad with it cause he has the Wii also. We would be going back and forth with the scores. Too funny!! We don't have the Guitar Hero for the Wii yet. We do have the American Idol for the PS2 and I totally ROCK on that! Paul has too deep of a voice that I tell him he has to basically talk the songs out to even get remotely close...lol! Poor guy!

Glad you guys are having a blast over there!! We should buy that gadget that lets you play with friends remotely and hook in together. That would be so much fun!! :o)

That's hilarious! We have a Wii...but our kids are obsessed with Mario Kart and Wii Music....so we haven't even worried about the Guitar Hero....
I'm still pouting from our Wii Fit telling me I'm an unbalanced, overweight 51 year old!
Ahem....did I really just post that? Happy playing!

I refused to play this at a friends party because i didn't want to be made fun of. As I'm always making fun of other people. It looks like a lot of fun.

I would pout also. :)

I am totally a sore loser and I won't play Guitar Hero anymore either. I do, however, LOVE American Idol Encore 2 for Wii. I am a much better singer.

Serenity said...

We got Wii Guitar Hero also for Christmas (actually Poncho got it for Christmas and it arrived on the 27th) It was so much fun but I already unlocked and mastered the easy and am halfway through the medium already...John can tell you I finished the easy in 4 days and it was the first time I ever played. I so want a bass so he is thinking I may get one now :) I love our Wii, it was the best investment ever...try playing WiiKart drunk that is hilarious...lol.

Minxy Mimi said...

LOL! It must be addicting, you are not the first person Ive heard raving about this game!
You need to post a video of you!

It's so sad when you get booed...oh wait maybe that's just me. I'm sure you can kick my ***. I'm quite pathetic at this game.

Kristen said...

I don't have those but they do sound and look like fun.
Can't wait to see more!

Trina said...

So funny! We have Guitar Hero, too, & we're totally addicted! My hubby's family came over the first night we got it & we realized something... the more we drank, the better we got! LOL After that night, we've been obsessed with getting better. Glad we're not the only Guitar Hero junkies! ;)
