She'll kick YOUR ass

I like videogames. Specifically, I like videogames for the PS2 and the Xbox. I never was one of those early gamers. You know, the ones who holed themselves up for hours on end and played Doom or Quake or some other early generation computer game on a small network, all the while screaming at each other and inventing lovely new epithets to call one another. But I do love me some videogame action.

I also am a fan of the punk rock girl. I am turned to a mass of dumb flesh at the sight of a pierced and tattooed lass. Which is odd, considering I'm about the most white bread fool you're ever likely to meet. But what can I say; the punk rock girl just ignites my anarchic soul and sets my heart all aflutter. This little paragraph really has nothing to do with the rest of the post, except that the punk rock girl [femaleis rockus hardcoreix] often enjoys the videogame, so I often think of the two in conjunction. [/boondoggle]

Anyway, today I stumbled across a blog called Old Grandma Hardcore. No, you filthy beast, this is not a porn site featuring the geriatric set. It's a blog written by some unnamed guy (he apparently goes by the nome de blog CtrlAltDelete) about his 69-year-old granmother. Said granmother (the nominatave matriarch of the blog title) LOVES videogames and curses like a sailor. Two things which I whole-heartedly endorse. And apparently she is quite good at them as well. As a whole, she sounds pretty awesome. Of course, you can see for yourself on some of the videos the blogger has posted. Great stuff. Incidentally, I'm adding it to my favorites list over there on the side, so visit and read at your leisure. You'll enjoy it, I assure you.

lol. Yeah, Billy, if you like badass - you gotta meet this chick Krysten.

Anyway - at what point does arthritis become a factor for this old lady? I hope I can be a grandpa like that. Then maybe one of my grandkids will make a website about me.

I don't know Krysten...I don't know if I can get over that "Celine Dion is better than Etta James" comment. But I'll try...

J.T., if you read about the third or fourth post down, you'll see a doctor's report on Grandma, related to arthritis, which cites her frequent gameplay as a factor in the aggravation of said condition.

And yeah...I'm sure you'd love your grandkids to build a website dedicated to you yelling things like "c***sucker" at a videogame. That sounds about your style.

Wow, I just know my kids are going to have extensive vocabularies by age 3 or so if we don't get Daddy his own room to play videogames in.
