Utter Lack of Lorna

So.  I’m still tired.  And that is after possibly the laziest weekend since records began.

Spent most of Saturday horizontal.  Not in a good way either.  I was either lazing on the sofa, soaking in the bath or sprawled on my bed reading.  

Didn’t even get dressed until about 3pm…

I love days like that.  I was so grey and miserable outside and I felt a bit grey myself so it just seemed to match really.

Sunday was spent clearing out the spare rooms on the top floor of our house.  This would have gone quicker except that I kept finding things I remembered from childhood and hadn’t seen for decades!  

AND!!!!  I found my old computers!  I have stored up there an old Spectrum, Sega Megadrive and Nintendo 64!

If I really look I should find a NES too.  Not a SNES mind.  A proper old NES.

I was in games heaven.

All I need to do is set them up and see if they all still work.  Would also need a tape deck for the Spectrum so may just have to ebay that one as is as I’m not sure I have such a thing as a tape deck anymore…

Off now to see if my TV will still connect to them…

Laters. xxx




P.S  Lorna is still off on her jollies so am having total withdrawal.  On the plus side I am seeing loads of Charlie!

Yay!

[is jealous of Paula's NES ownership and starts thinking up a cunning plan to tidy up her spare room for her so that he can get to it first]

we've got a BBC Micro, but when i dug it out before we moved house the cable to connect it to the tv was missing, which was a tad annoying.

ive been playing Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time a lot recently. one of the best games ever. ive bought a GameCube off eBay for just £26 along with Super Mario Sunshine, Zelda: Wind Waker and an update of Zelda: Ocarina.
you cant beat the classics, but hopefully itll come close....
hopefully itll arrive soon.

still no sign of my box set of every episode of Danger Mouse ever. apparently Play.com are still waiting on stock.

woot said...

I was never a fan of Dangermouse. Penfold freaked me out. Especially when I started a new job and HE WAS WORKING THERE!!! Sneakily going by the name Dave...

My NES is fantastic *bats away Matts hand* Have Mario Brother game, Dr Mario and a really bad wrestling game. I still know all the cheats for the Mario Brothers too!!!!

I did indeed have vast quantities of tea at Charlie's house. She does make a fantastic cup of tea. When she doesn't but weird chinese rocks in it anyway...

And I did love the Thai food. Apart from the rubber cakes...

charlie said...

They were thai fish cakes-not bizarre rubber cakes-I am bemused and worried as to how and why you know what rubber tastes like.



I am never licking any substances from your rubber cat suit!

Matt said...

[starts coming up with another plan to steal the NES by sticking a big poster of Penfold to the inside of Paulas bedroom door so that when she goes in, she'll be to scared to go out again...]

crumbs, chief!

woot said...

Thats a rubbish plan matt. Where do you think my NES is?

And Charlie - you have alread been licking my rubber catsuit - i saw you!

Do not be ashamed of your fettish - embrace it and join a website or something. There are probably loads out there...

Lorna's Ark said...

woot said...
