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!
