And now to further cement my geekiness

I scored 165,920 and reached LEVEL 20 on Galaga today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had a craptacular day on Friday. Where some people turn to comfort food when they’re sad, I prefer comfort presents for Tia. I first stopped by Bath and Body Works to purchase all of the remaining bottles of White Ginger and Amber. I would like to thank B&B for discontinuing a fragrance that I love (that smelled EXACTLY like the fragrance I wore my senior year of college which Yves Saint Laurent felt THEY needed to discontinue) and leaving me with all of the rest of that crap that smells the same. I then proceeded to Best Buy. I was going to buy Hot Pursuit 2 so that when I see my friend Brian next month I can WHOOP him mercilessly when we play. However, much to my chagrin, they were sold out of HP2. They DID have Namco Museum and Tekken 4 for $19.99. Namco Museum is for the grown and sexy. It has games that people born after 1985 have probably never actually seen or played: Galaga, Galaxia, Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man, DigDug, and Pole Position 1&2. It was on and poppin’ Saturday. I spent most of Saturday night playing Galaga and Pole Position. I woke Sunday and my thumbs hurt. I went home for lunch today and played and that is when I got the GLOW. I was in the ZONE, BABY!!!!! After I quit playing I ran around the house singing Queen’s “We are the champions” in first person. There is no “WE.” Only I am the champion.

I am the BIGGEST nerd I know and I wouldn’t change a thing.

I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I am the champion, my friend. And I-I-I-I-I-I’ll keep in playing ‘til the end. I am the champion. I am the champion. No time for weenies, ‘cuz I am the champion of GALAGA.
