A Whole 'Nother World
I didn't get as much done over the long weekend as I had hoped, because my beloved decided that she had to have Guitar Hero for her Playstation. She actually dragged home Rock Band, which includes a guitar, a drum-set, and a microphone so that several people can play together.
I typically don't have much interest in video games (at least not since Ultima wouldn't run on my latest computer), but she talked me into playing the guitar, and I was hooked. I even gave the drums a shot, but that was short-lived. My grown kids came over and my daughter sang, my son took on the drums (and quickly displayed envious talent), I played guitar, and my sweetie played bass (she had to run back to the store for a second guitar). My 8-yr. old grandson rotated and played both guitar and drums, but mostly sang with his mom. This is a really fun game and very family- or group-oriented, and I like the fact that there's no violence (and only a few problematic lyrics in some of the songs). The pic is of my son playing guitar.
I did manage to finish the doll I started a while back. She's lovely, at least in my opinion! I'm currently ghost-writing her autobiography for her.
