Rekindling My Youth

The title is actually a euphemism for "I did not work as hard the last several days because I was busy playing PC games". Haha. When I was in high school I was addicted to PlayStation (yes,. I am THAT old). Me and my sisters and cousins would play Crash Team Racing, Snowbow Kids Plus, South Park Rally and all those uber cool games we had all weekend long. Our parents were thankful that we were not out on the streets like most other teens because they can keep a close eye on us, but when the electric bills came I'm not sure if they were as thankful. But anyway, last week I discovered about several PlayStation emulator software. They have been in existence for a while now and I am shocked that I only found out about them last week.

Since I've download a pretty good emulator, me and hubby have been downloading PSX games (that's what they call PS games that can be played on a desktop) like mad. First there was Harvest Moon (that we haven't finished yet) and then there was Snobow Kids Plus (which we finished in two days) and now there's Crash Team Racing. The graphics are horrible compared to the newer games today. Hubby laughs at how some of the characters were drawn (he can do that because he can draw quite well. I can't because I would sound like a superficial toad as I can only draw stick figures) But I'd rather have that and a good storyline than eye-candy graphics and crappy plot.

Anyway, I don't know if anyone can relate. I feel like I'm the only one (aside from my hubby) who plays them anymore. LOL. I've been so out lately that these things distract me easily from my work. I feel guilty, really. I feel like I should stop playing these childish games and focus on work instead but somewhere in my mind it says I should loosen up a bit or I end up deranged from work overload. I'm a little crazy but I don't want to be deranged, so I'm gonna end this entry now to play some more. Haha. Another blog redesign project is in the works for a friend, I hope to finish it by tomorrow. Tell me what you think about it by then.
