Phone Lime

I'm going to try to do this thing where I write e-mails to my friends in an attempt to have more meaningful exchanges with people I know and care about but do not have much occasion to speak with. This would be instead of sort of casually keeping tabs on them via Facebook status updates.

No one likes to be called on the phone anymore, including myself. Yuck. Fucking phone. It's as if everyone has issued the ultimatum, "you send me a text or a Facebook public wall post." E-mail is no longer fashionable. "If you have anything to say to me, you can say it in front of every fucking person we know."

I miss being excited by the sound of a ringing phone instead of terrified that I might have to carry on a 5 minute conversation with someone I would normally love to talk to.

One of the first people I e-mailed was my locker partner form my freshman year in high school. He responded with a shortly albeit friendly e-mail saying he would love to catch up, and asked me to call him this weekend.

Fucking phone.

About Liam Limeone of us since 4:11 PM on 06.16.2011

I may not merit the title of "gamer" but video games have always been a part of my life. Some seasons significantly more than others, and some games more than others. I was still young when the Nintendo Entertainment System made its debut, but I still remember playing Pitfall, Adventure, and Space Invaders on the Atari. Games with unrivaled significance in my life have been: The Legends of Zelda, both Ocarina of Time & Majora's Mask; Final Fantasy VII & VIII; and Portal. It is probably not a coincidence that I shared all of these games (in 2 cases in their entirety) with my best friend. The early years swept me away with The Legends of Zelda, The Princes of Persia, Super Mario 2, MegaMan 2, Street Fighter II, Double Dragon, Super MarioKart, Pilot Wings, Ninja Gaiden, Punch Out, Contra, and Metroid.

My latest jaunts into gaming have been largely disappointing since while playing Kingdom Hearts and Epic Mickey I discovered that sometime during the last two decades I've grown up. I still do not have the time or resources to mount any kind of comeback, but I always keep the pilot light on so that one day I can reunite with my estranged inner-gamer.
