Favorite things Friday....among other things

Um, I still have 9 minutes left. I know it's a little late but I am hooked to my new favorite thing. After New Years Eve I went out the next day and bought Gui.tar Her.o. I love it and I can't seem to stop playing. However, I have to stop now because my neck and wrists started aching so I am here getting caught up.

I did not ever think I would like this game. I mean look at how long it took me to play it. What has been a couple years this has been out. But I do I love it! It is addicting and the funny thing is my husband likes it but doesn't care really one way or the other. We have 2 guitars...we got a great deal...and we have been playing with and against each other and it has been fun...well except tonight he hasn't really played.

I came home from work and he was still in bed. He is off work for 4 days and it was 5:30 and he was still in bed. I was like "uh, do you think you could get up now" and then he said "well, I have had the worst headache" and so I have been trying to sleep it off. He said it was really really bad. That statement just made me freeze and sent me into panic mode. He said he was trying to avoid that and that is why he did not call me at work. In retrospect that was probably a good idea but I though he should have called. You may ask "why would a bad headache send someone into panic mode"...well you see in my DH's family aneurysms run wild. He has had like 4 family members die from brain aneurysms and his dad that survived. So it scares the shit out of me. Every time he gets a headache I am constantly checking on him to see if he is breathing. I hate it! One time we had to take him to the hospital because he couldn't stand up straight or see straight and he was throwing up. They did a MRI and told him it was just a migraine. The thing that scares me is there is no way to tell if it is just your run of the mill migraine or something more serious and again it scares the shit out of me. I know I may be overreacting but that is what I do. I am a professional at worrying.

He feels better now but I still worry.

Anyway, well it is now after 12:00 but I started before so it still counts. If you haven't tried Gui.tar Her.o, you should it is a lot of fun...or maybe you shouldn't if you want to get anything done. LOL I hope you all have a great weekend.

Eeek about your husband's headaches.... that would scare the life out of me too.

Ditto on the guit.ar her.o! Addictive, addictive stuff. And I never thought I would like it either.

I am so addicted to guitar hero. Hey maybe if I ever bother to get my xbox live subscription going we can play online together.

I think I am the only person on earth that can't stand Guitar Hero or any derivative. I can't even understand why people like it so much. Perhaps I should give it another chance. I prefer just to bowl on my wii ::)

Migraines are icky shit. Poor DH :(

xox

I have never played Guitar Hero... it sounds like something I would really like. :)

Sorry about DH's headache, I hope he feels better soon. I can understand why you'd be so worried!

I would be freaked about the headaches. I'm one of those that would rather be safe than sorry when it comes to things like that. I hope he feels better soon.

I"m going to have to get a gaming system because I love the guitar hero/rock band games.
