Cyborg or not Cyborg….that is the question???
Yesterday I found myself in a pickle….my brain as usual was trying extremely hard to extract any logical explanations from my overly emotional, mixed signal, visual-audio, rerun/reran turmoil.
This is where I would love to have the switch to deactivate my emotion chip and step into the form of Cyberwoman. You understand I am still at the Cybergirl stage…as complete assimilation has been very kindly stopped by the loving finger of God…..Thank you Lord. x
While reading through my blog roll and visiting my friends blogs, I was able to, very nicely then, add more confusion on top of my already melting brain. Until I came across this post, written by a very good friend of mine.
Yes….it made me think, I mean…it made me really, really think….!!!
What about, I hear you ask???……..Well here you go!
I consider myself to be a bit of a 1980’s arcade legend. My high score on Asteroids, Ladbrokes holiday camp, Great Yarmouth 1982 was never beaten. I will brag on….LMHO
I was also the ONLY girl able to clear numerous rounds of Space Invaders, Pacman and Donkey Kong. The other girls only seemed to have the concentration span to be giggling while watching the boys play. Pathetic I know….tell me about it….hehehe… As I roll my eyes.
The boys were more interested in figuring out my gamer plan, as I was able to whoop their butts every time…….HA!!! Owned…lol
Oh yes, I can see myself now in my Rainbow roller-discos, ankle warmers and black satin hot pants, with a pocket full of 10p coins, and it makes me giggle. 😀
Alright, alright I’m back in 2010 again….I really do need to stop jumping in and out of my time Machine…..I swear one day them Morlocks will follow me back.
So as I was saying…..This post and how it made me think.
As a kid I developed a coping strategy when I felt overwhelmed, it went like this.
- Bang my way up stair as quickly as I could.
- Lock myself in my bedroom
- Put on extremely loud and angry music
- Switch on my ATARI, also at full volume
- Cram that much noise and speed into my head I couldn’t possible think
Interesting….I thought to myself. I wonder if it still works, because my brain is going that fast I am getting to the point where tears follow.
So here we go….online full screen Asteroids with a more modern look but still the original layout, and a few other classics.
Retro 80’s Arcade Games, full screen, with original sound…..gotta love that sound.
I know what you’re all thinking…..No, I have NOT lost the plot. This really did help me!
I was able to find some peace away from my own brain and then actually function like a human for the rest of the day.
All hail the ATARI game system….and give thanks to the googley lord, for its search into cyberspace.
Oh and one more thing,
Thank you Jesus you ‘get me’ so well ! X 🙂
Just a little something to amuse …….. 🙂
