Yoshi's Revenge

phantomrain, librarygal, Engineer Boy, squealnakedcatj, and myself all helped springsea move to her new apartment today.  Her father and sister were also present and assisting in the transition, so it was nice to meet them.  Got there about 9:15 AM, and the truck already had quite a few items in it.  Helped get everything out, then squealnakedcatj pulled into the parking lot just as were were finishing up.  Of course, we had to give him a hard time about that!  We then formed a caravan and made our way, slowly but surely, across town to springsea's new complex.

When we got there, I made the mistake of bumping up against the lift mechanism and got grease on my shorts.  I went into the bathroom and tried to get it out as best I could, but all I really did was make sure I would be wet for the rest of the morning.  Blah!  We got everything transferred in good time; springsea was having some initial trouble figuring out where she wanted things to go, but it all turned out quite nicely.  squealnakedcatj made amends for his tardiness at that point and put the stereo together, as well as wiring the playback devices to the TV.  Her dad ran out to the grocery store while we were finishing up, and came back with food and drinks.  We were able to make some nice, healthy sandwiches after a long morning of work!  Amazingly, we were pretty much done by 12:15 PM.

squealnakedcatj and I then returned to my apartment downtown for a little relaxation and fun time.  The Onion Gal didn't call, so I assume she and her sister were able to handle things in her move without problems.  That meant the two of us were able to pull out the old N64 for some gaming enjoyment.  We played "Goldeneye" for a while and went back and forth in victories, then partially completed a round of "Mario Party 3."  Yoshi had been a mortal enemy, but a recent Chance moment has now transferred the momentum to the computerized Daisy.  She must be stopped!  It's funny because we get really into that game and don't know anyone else who loves it half as much as we do.

Planning to go to church tomorrow, then I will try to get some work done at the library.  I may check out the jazzfest, not sure if I will or not.  Hopefully, I'll be able to get in to UL and get some work done!  I like to drive on weekends because I can park for free in the parking garage, but I may ride my bike just so I don't have to deal with all the traffic hassle.  Anyway, it's been a productive weekend and hope it will continue to be.

Mario Party Madness!

Indeed, spk1121 and I do enjoy a good game of Mario Party 3, for the N64. For us, this particular game sparks an inner passion of commpetitiveness that contrasts starkly with the cartoon-like Nintendo characters of our youth.

We impart such a high level of imagined maliciousness to our innocent opponents that we come to accept them as worthy evil adversaries and find ourselves making quips like "D--- you Yoshi, that was my coin bag!" or even "Doesn't feel so good to have all your coins stolen, does it Princess!?" Even the lovable Dice Guy whose simple duty it is to establish the initial turn order and reveal the location of the goal stars, assumes the role of a hated hexahedral menace. "Oh no, the star's all the way over here. Now no one will ever get it!"

Draping the characters in these unnatural personas is what really makes the game entertaining. I have no doubt that there are others out there with this same misplaced mania for a silly children's game. Finding them would make for a facinating social experiment. Now I'm thinking I'll search for it as an "interest" under LJ's pages. Wish S- and I the best of luck in our pathetic addiction.
