Ok, true confession time. Part of the reason I haven't blogged this month is I've been sucked into playing Mario. My husband bought a new DS Lite and I've found that the Super Mario Bros. game is really, really fun. Part of the fun is how annoyed Christoph is that I am in world six and he's only in world three. Mostly I like it because this is the first Mario game that I've actually been able to get past the second level. I could never beat the first castle on the original Super Mario Bros and I don't think I even passed the first level on Super Mario World. I don't know if it's because I've become a better video game player or if this game just isn't so frustratingly impossible. I have played a lot of Mario Party over the last three years and that could be a big part of it. In addition to the main game it has a bunch of mini games. There is a fair amount of variety to them. It's nice to have something you can play for a few minutes without having to devote time to beating several levels. Anyway, I love this game. It is so fun! And I can stop playing anytime I want to. Really. No big deal. It's not like I NEED the DS. Gotta go, I'm at the castle.
