I could say I'll be dead tomorrow and Thursday, and then resurrect from the dead on Friday, but there's two problems with that. First, my name is not Jesus F. Christ, and second, I'm not actually going to die. The truth is, I've been dead in a way for the last year and a half, and in three days time I will in a sense resurrect my life from the dead. Or at least that's how it's felt, since I've been living as a transient since about May of 2009.
In the context of this blog, though, there's something I'm specifically looking forward to. Ever since I moved to Las Vegas almost a year and a half ago, I haven't had much more with me other than my clothes and my computer. Almost all of my belongings have been sitting in a storage unit during all of this time. That would just so happen to include all of my game systems, including my 2600, 7800, Lynx, 800XL, XEGS, and my two Jaguars. When I raise myself from the dead on Friday, I'll have all of those back, along with a myriad of other assorted items that I have missed a great deal.
This means no more relying on emulation or my craptacular PC gamepad, no futzing with craptastic emulators for systems that virtually no one bought, and, well...I'll have my stuff back. I'll in a way start to feel alive again, or at least a part of me that has been dead for a while now will be able to live and breathe again. It's silly to put things in this context, I know, but still. What is there to NOT look forward to by living in my own place again?
