Adventures of Araleith

All is fair in love, war, and Mario Kart

on November 5, 2012

This weekend had a couple adventures it in – went to a local market with my sister, and bought a bunch of yummy food things, giggled over strange things in thrift stores, and watched SO MUCH Degrassi: The Next Generation. 

Today, though, was the adventure referenced in my title. 

Me, my sister, and her boyfriend went over to my parents today for lunch and such, and for a Mario Kart showdown. I am a pretty big gamer, and my parents play their fair share of party type games, as does my sister. My dad actually really loves Zelda games and stuff like that – I suspect Imy love of gaming is his fault. 😛

SO MUCH TRASH TALK. I am pretty sure at points, with all the yelling and cursing and teasing that was going on, the neighours likely thought we were nuts, or really hated each other. 😛  We had to play in rotating shifts (5 people, 4 controllers), which got pretty awesome as people lost and were replaced.

There was much laughing and joking and teasing and I remembered how terrible I am at Mario Kart, how much the Wii steering wheel thing is kind of annoying, and how crazily competitive my family can get (in the best of ways.)

I miss playing video games as a social thing – most of what I play is very solo, because I dislike most MMOs and other multiplayer games. 

Anyone out there want to play Mario Party or something with me? There could be cupcakes.

    Yes it’s good to spend a day with family, eat food and try really hard to kick each others butts and laugh so hard you get tears n tummy cramps. We are crazy but we love each other! Love how you write!
