Closing the Quest for GH

Stephen and I made our weekly trekk to Best Buy Saturday night on our way to Costco to see if they had any Wii or 360s in stock. This has become a weekly ritual and every week we walk out empty handed; what is it with these game systems that they're still so popular that you can't get one more than one month after Christmas? So I was expecting that we would spend 15 minutes at Best Buy waiting for our weekly rejection notice, and then going on our way to buy food for our Super Bowl party the next evening. But that wasn't the case.

The girl said they had the Xbox 360 "Pro" in stock so Stephen calls his friend to make sure this is the one we want; indeed, this apparently is the one we want. 5 minutes later she comes back to tell us that they had sold out of them... BOO!!! :( But she tells us that two other stores in the area have some in stock, so any thoughts of food for our party are thrown by the wayside and off we go to drive around town looking for an Xbox. Anyway, we got one. AND we got the greatest game in the world: Guitar Hero (versions II and III.)

Stephen and I spent the rest of Saturday night and most of Sunday playing GH (our band name is Get Baked), so... no super bowl snacks, except what we already had in the house (chips and salsa, almonds, whole grain crackers) but plenty of GH. Today, the tips of my fingers are blistered and battered all for the sake of "Get Baked," but I can't describe how thrilled I am to finally own GH.

I'm not saying I'm great... in fact, I'd say I sort of suck but it's just so much fun! I made sure not to own the game until I was finished with grad school because I figured I'd probably quit going to school to play!
