I've got the crud. At first I thought it was allergies, but the allergy readings haven't been that bad and my fever hit 101 last night. I had to turn on the AC and the fan in the middle of January.

So, here's something Doug sent me. When I was a kid, we had an Atari 2600 and Colecovision. We thought Colecovision was the s#&*. The graphics were sooooo much better than Atari, because they probably added, like 10 pixels. My favorite game was the Smurf game. In my defense I was pretty young:

Stupid fences

We also had this game called Venture, which I would never play because I thought it was too hard and it scared me. No, I am not kidding:

Stupid goblins

I still liked the Atari, though, mainly because of Pitfall and Adventure:

I could never get past the alligator pit without a rope

You gotta love a video game where your character is a square

Sorry for the sad sack post, but that's all the energy I've got. I'm going to go curl up into a ball on the couch.

So sorry that you're sick! Hopefully Ryan is helping you out. And Lucy.
Get better quick!

hope you feel better soon. I loved pitfall too, we had it on Intelivision. Yes, it's sad, we had intelivision along with our PC, jr.
