Technically, this could be considered the end of Mailing it in Week since all my finals are done and I am sitting in my bed in the luxurious Twinsburg, Ohio. But I am going to finish what I started.
To be fair, my schedule for today is busy enough that I can "Mail it in" without fear of my conscience attacking me. Tonight I am going to watch a play that my brother directed. I completely forgot about this so it was a pleasant surprise like finding a ten dollar bill in your pocket....or finding Jimmy Hoffa's preserved remains in the walk-in freezer at the Outback Steakhouse in Odessa, But before that, I am going to inevitably have to pay a visit to Dr. Brad, my family physician.
First, I am going to need to apologize to him for shunning his sage advice. But after the grovelling is over I am going to have to kindly request that he give me antibiotics, steroids and crystal-meth. My throat hurts, you see and I am starting to feel a little woozy. I am fairly certain I have strep throat....or at least herpes. Either way, I am going to demand that my shaman take the pain away or put me out of my misery. I am okay with either option.
But before all that nonsense goes down, there is one last bit of business to attend to. My first dentist appointment in over a year is today. Now, I once heard that more people are afraid of dentists than they are of death. I have never understood this fear but I think I might now. When my dentist sees that my teeth are more cavity than they are dental tissue, he might just drop kick my esophagus while I sit in the chair with my mouth open.
This may be my very last blog entry if my dentist does, in fact, kill me. So I would like to give a shout out to something that I never have before in almost 140 posts. My dentist's name is Dr. Mario (no joke). That got me thinking that video games have been a pretty integral part of my generation's culture. I have been masquerading as an entertainment and culture blog for the past 5 or 6 months and it is absolutely inexcusably that I have never ONCE mentioned any video games that I enjoy.
So, I attempted to make an exhaustive and complete list of every video game I have played and truly enjoyed in my life. Here is the list as it stands right now but I will probably add more later as I remember them.
Donkey Kong Country Series
Backyard Baseball Series
MVP Baseball Series
Final Fantasy Tactics
Madden Football Series
World of Warcraft
Super Smash Brothers Series
Time Splitters 2
Super Monkey Ball 2
I would love to hear your feedback on how much of an idiot or "noob" I am. That will give me something to look forward to while I am getting choked to death by Dr. Mario.
