Couple of different things going, figured I’d lump’em in together:
1) I’ve had the flu the past two days. I wasn’t feeling well at all on Wednesday since the moment I woke up. Uneasy stomach accompanied with being cold with my whole body aching and then simply being cold led to me shivering… This was my predicament all day long, until the evening when a sudden surge of heat came over my body and then not 5 minutes later there was a sudden surge coming OUT of my body. What a way to spend my day off. I even called in yesterday because I was still too much of a wreck to make it in.
As of right now, I’m pretty much in the clear. My chest and back were still aching as of early this morning, but both seem to be a lot better since I went back to bed around 7am and didn’t get up until 10:30am or so. And yes, I’m even looking forward to getting out and going to work later today because being trapped in the apartment and feeling miserable for the last two days has been driving me crazy.
2) It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything worthwhile on the blog. Sorry for that, trust me, there’s TONS of topics I wanna get to, I just keep procrastinating because I usually have a hard time deciding what to write about and it takes me awhile to put the article together. Another reason I haven’t posted here much lately is because I’m posting here, at my music blog. It’s been getting a bit more attention because it doesn’t take long for me to whip one out (a post that is).
3) I’m absolutely loving my Wii right now. The Virtual Console is a dream come true. Sure, you can emulate pretty much all these retro games for free, but I’d rather be able to kick back in my video game chair or on the couch and play the games comfortably instead of sitting at a computer desk staring at a small screen.
I bought Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the adventure mode is really fun. Connie and I have been playing that a lot, I’m done with all but one of the challenges (protecting the Pikmin) and got my butt kicked in the only two online battles I’ve yet to play.
I downloaded Super Castlevania IV, Super Mario Bros. 2, Streets of Rage 2, and Kirby’s Adventure yesterday. Of those, I’ve only played/owned SMB2, but the rest are pretty fun, especially Kirby (who I also love using in Smash Bros.). I also have Punch Out, Splatterhouse, Excitebike, Bonk’s Adventure (another first time for me), Shining Force, Legend of Zelda (close to beating it for the first time ever!), and Super Mario Bros. 3 already on my system.
Anyway, hopefully on some upcoming day off, I’ll get an article or two up and running.
Happy Easter to all!
