Dented Bucket List – Don’t Give Up

Recently I… I don’t want to say ‘found’ because I didn’t find this blog. A friend found it and reblogged from it, bringing it to my attention. I’ve seen people get taken down for something that they didn’t do. I’ve seen them be persecuted and prosecuted while being innocent.

People can do their best and still be left with more than the bill, they can get left with the bill while not even knowing they were a part of the party.

Here is my ‘dented bucket list.’

  • Permanently dye my hair bright pink.
  • Litter on purpose.
  • Purposefully kill someone’s plants.
  • Mistake 4 tsp. for 4 tbs…again.
  • Throw an instrument away.
  • Purposefully break/damage another’s property.
  • Abandon someone (human or animal).
  • Burn something down.
  • Give up. Give in to despair.

Even if you lose the fight, don’t let them make you lose your spirit and your hope.

Vintage Games

Listening to the sound of my younger sister and her husband talk video games with our eldest niece and nephews.

“The owl has more usefulness than Sheik!”

“We get the picture!”

I accidentally mentioned that I wish there was more Sheik usage in the game “Zelda: Ocarina of Time.” It was the only Zelda game that I ever played as a kid and my eldest niece was asking for pointers on how to do something for the Princess of the Twilight (is that the right one?) game that she had borrowed from one of her aunts. I know nothing about that game other than Link is the main character and Zelda will likely be mentioned in it somewhere.

Her response was amusing.

“You mean I have to figure this game out by myself?!”

shrugs I like getting them into vintage games. They are harder and take a little bit more skill than some of the newer games that are gore-free. Most of the kid-friendly games nowadays seem to have built-in cheats that make them easier to move up in levels with less skill. Not that they spend a lot of time on anything electronic anyway, but sometimes they need something a little more challenging when they are playing video games.

Now if only Wii would have “Donkey Kong: Country” available in their Wii Store again.
