One down, one to go...

Okay, technical difficulty 1 has been repaired. My cable modem was messed up all day yesterday, and the repairman fixed it this morning.

Centipede attack is ongoing, but I have managed to contain all the creepy crawlies in one large box....




No, that isn't a picture of my particular large box, but it does look exactly like it. Santa brought me this nifty thing that not only contains all those bugs but also allows me to shoot them. When I was a kid in the 1980s I used to have to put many quarters into similar boxes to practice shooting bugs, but now I can do it anytime I want! And no need to feed it quarters! Ah, what a great trip down memory lane. And I wonder if this counts as aerobic exercise because it sure does increase my heart rate.

I'll post pictures of my box and all my high scores as soon as I get a new cord for my digital camera. The puppies chewed up the other cord. Not that my scores are anything to brag about though. So far I'm up to a little over 37,000. But that's a far cry from the all time record high score, 7,111,111. That score was reached by some guy who has the time to play 8 hours at a time. Yeah, I've been scarce in the blogosphere lately, but I assure you that I've not been playing Centipede for very long stretches. I don't have that luxury, or the stamina. lol

Glad you are back. I was worried that you were sick again or sicker.

Centipede or no, I bet you can think of other ways to get your heart rate up. ;-P

Oh yeah, and I just found out that Centipede was the first arcade game created by a woman. No wonder most girls like it so much!
