Tuesday? So soon?

Well, in the progression of the daily work week, we come upon our idle Tuesday. As per Douglas Adams’s writing in The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, his character Arthur Dent said it best: “I could never get the hang of Tuesdays.”¬†Apparently, according to my breakfast associates, I look quite tired. You know that feeling where people say you look tired, and you can just feel that your tired in your own eyes. Ok, that may have been confusing, but the fact that I’m tired still remains.

I’ve been commissioned to help launch the new Wooster website by sifting through coding material and finding out which links head back to the College of Wooster main page, so today will be slightly eye-numbing, but exciting.

"Drink meeeee..."

"Drink meeeee..."

Bottom line? I’m sleepy.

So, being the super-dork I am sometimes, I have taken to drifting around Ebay for interesting deals on retro-style video games. What might I have found? Oh, you know, just a little thing called a Game Boy Pocket (Green, mind you.) on Ebay for a dollar.

A SINGLE DOLLAR.

Since a man can only go to the gym and read for so long outside of work, I needed something to keep my hands busy, so I thought to myself “Why not devolve into playing those old Game Boy games? I mean, I loved Tetris, right?” (I also got Jen one, thinking we’d be able to battle each other. Wrong. I didn’t remember I needed a cord to plug them both together. Made me feel super old. PS: I know, I’m a nerd, but leave me be. It’s a sign of affection.)

Anyways, I remember back in the day when these puppies used to run about 75$ and the games were close to 25$. I can get the game for these Game Boys at a price close to 75 cents per pack of 20. Ridiculous? Slightly. I guess it just made me remember how quickly technology changes, as well as how easily things can get replaced now-a-days. Seriously though, only a dollar? I’m going to have to hunt for my old games back home. It’s been quite a long time since these systems have seen the light of day.

It all comes flooding back to me...

It all comes flooding back to me...

Since, for some ungodly reason, I’ve had a copy of Game Boy Camera stuck in my glove compartment in my car, I thought I’d pop it in and see what (if anything) I had on it. Hell, to see if it would have even worked. To my utmost surprise, it actually did have things on it! Pictures of my 6th grade lacrosse coach, Mr. Hamzi (who, if I recall, got ridiculously mad at us while we played. Not really sure why though…) Pictures of Chris Pierce, as well as Jeff when we were probably in like, 6th grade. Along with those pictures, I have some VERY young pictures of Rainor and Baldur. (I mean, come on. I was in 5th/6th grade when I had this thing. Still have no idea what it was doing in my car.) But the hilarity wore thin, and I turned the little device off for a spell.

Talk about a flashback though.
