Is that the weekend I see before me?

Oh…my…Gawd, this has been a week of drama.


I can’t get into it, but suffice it to say that all manner of shit broke out in a bitch’s world simultaneously.

Not good, not good, not good…trust a bitch (wink).

But off in the distance…beyond the veil of ice-based rain…is the motherfucking weekend!

Hell yes.

In times like this a bitch likes to look back to a kindler gentler time…

…and that’s why this story about the Commodore 64 made me smile.

C-Money and this bitch had one and it was the shit! I didn’t exactly understand what it was for…shit, a bitch wrote school papers by hand then typed them up until college (fuck it, I hate change)…but everyone in my school envied the hell out of it so I just had to adore it!

Even finding out that my beloved Commodore 64 is 25 years old…wince…didn’t piss in the Corn Flakes of my nostalgic joy.


Music television that actually played music, hours upon hours of time to fuck around doing nothing with my Commodore 64 and easy access to ice cold Capri-Suns from the fridge….ahhhhhh, those were the days.

WTF? Its been 25 years?

Was seriously addicted to Impossible Mission!

And don't forget the great stereo sound -- plugged into a receiver/amp's auxiliary input for maximum gaming experience B^)

We had a Commodore 64 too!
That was when the gamer in me was born. I had 10 to 15 games for it. Those and the word processing cartidge. Oh the memories..have a great weekend!!

Sorry to hear you've had a week.

Yes, sometimes pianos do fall of out the sky and on our heads.

Hang in there. It could be worse....Dick Cheney could be your spouse (Eeeeeuuuu!).

I used to have a C128, that worked well for word processing, played in C64 mode so you could play the games. I ended up with three (128 and 2-64s). I sold all but a 64, drive and monitor on eBay.

What gets me is that the computer I have now has a processor speed thousands of times faster, RAM a couple hundred thousand times greater than the 64, but it doesn't deliver that much more fun.

"doing nothing with my Commodor 64..." Duh! It just occured to me how much time I spend glued to my darn computer. I need to get a life. I better go get dressed, drop a little "tottie" into my coffee and prepare to brave Christmas shopping madness. Have a Great Weekend Shark Fu

Ha! The Ex and I had one -- we got addicted to one of the early role playing games. This thing was the Pong of fantasy games. We had to start it loading on a cassette drive, and it took about 20 minutes for the program to load up. We thought we were the shit when we upgraded to that Commodore 128. Oh yeah.

God, how I loved my Commodore! Didn't do a dang thing with it, but I sure did love telling people I had one.

As for the Capri Suns. I've got me a box in the fridge. Of course, they belong to my kiddies but I suck the bottom out of them every chance I get.

You drank Capri-Sun? I could never get those damned straws into the packet, and eventually gave up even trying.

Easy access to ice cold Capri-Suns from the fridge? Are you serious? There was nothing easy about getting that damn straw in that juice pouch.
