Connie and I headed up to the farthest reaches of New Hampshire (also known as Vermont) for Turkey Day this year, and it was good because
1. Lauren’s mom is an awesome cook.
2. We got to play Nintendo for two days straight. Man, the Legend of Zelda is definitely one of the best games ever made. I spent eight hours playing it with Lauren and Connie (and occasionally Michael and Jeff, since somehow they were less obsessed than we were) — not even playing 80% of the time but pointing out bushes to burn and rocks to push — and it never got old. I couldn’t ever play, much less watch, any of those newfangled games (and Wii boxing would just wear me out after an hour). I don’t know if it’s because I was trained at a young age to appreciate the lo-tech magic of the NES or if it’s just an excellent gaming system in and of itself, but man, that thing is FUN. My dreams will be populated by bleeps and bloops for the next week.
