Nope. Not one of the kids. They’re plugging along. Being adorable. Like this.
But Herr Husband and I have rediscovered an old obsession. Some of you may have joined us in at one time or another.
Karaoke Revolution for PS2.
We dug it out of the basement on Sunday night and played for three hours. And we’re about to fire up the rickety old game system and our rickety old voices again. It’s amazing that after five years of not having played it, we remember a lot of the tricks to the songs, and still consistently have our strengths (me on “Careless Whisper,” or anything by Cyndi Lauper/Britney/Madonna; Herr Husband on anything lilting and earnest from the late 90s/early oughts, like “Kiss Me,” “Every Morning,” or “The First Cut is the Deepest,” as well as all R&B and soul songs. Basically, I dominate the eighties and Britney, he owns everything else.)
We like to play as Robots vs. Goths. (Wouldn’t you?). At the moment we can’t find a memory card, meaning the proper robot has yet to be unlocked, leaving poor Herr Husband to play as a lady robot instead of his usual boxier, more masculine avatar. He’s cool with it.
If I’m being honest, Robots usually win.
But Goths are ready to go kick some ass. Wish me luck.
