out with the old, in with the old memories

Happy Near Year!

The Aftermath

Yesterday my old friend Josh came to visit and hang out with me and Melvin. I've known Josh for about 9 or 10 years (since 11th grade) where we met in band class. We'd always make fun of everyone and each other and talk about video games (big surprise). Anyway, the last I saw him was either late '99 or early 2000. We've been in constant contact since then, and even now despite him living in Japan for the past 2 years teaching English. So anyway, Josh came to visit so we could catch up on old times and relive old memories of playing N64 all night on our band trip. As such, I broke out the old N64 and games for some Goldeneye action. I've been calling Josh "Goldeneye Boy" since high school, so it came as no surprise that I got destroyed in the game. Despite having not played the game in 6 or 7 years, he played really well. For pretty much the entire afternoon, evening, and night, all we did was play old N64 games, 360 games, and Halo 2. I would have liked to show him the Wii, but as you know, it's dead. My hand is a little sore from using the N64 controller, but it was a blast playing all those old games and remembering old times. What a way to start the new year.
