Hit Girl

Weird dream last night.

Strange dream last night. It started with being in the car with Mom, Dad, and Tara, apparently in Iowa. We parked by this pond just on the other side of a big hill. Somehow I got from there to this building that was some kind of live-action video game, each room a level. But I wasn't playing the game, just looking in each room. Some of the levels in some of the rooms were obviously made for little kids, and wouldn't work for anyone older than 5. Yet oddly, there was an open bar by the registration desk.

When I left, I got a ride in a car with Jason Thelen, someone I knew in high school. Some other people I knew in high school were in the car, too, though I don't remember who. Apparently Jason worked at this building we'd just been in, and was technically still on the clock but was giving us a ride anyway.

Somehow, the ride in the car turned into riding a tandem bike with Jason, on busy and dangerous highways, and I was complaining about the lack of bike lanes, and how in Portland almost every road had bike lanes. We made it over this hill, and there was Mom and Dad's car still parked there by this little pond. They'd been waiting for me the whole time, and said, "What took you so long?" But they'd apparently been swimming in the pond while I was gone, as they were all wearing bathing suits.

The end.

Sonic the Hedgehog games on my PC

When I couldn't get the Sonic the Hedgehog games I had (2, 3, and Sonic & Knuckles) to install on my new laptop, I was a naughty girl and spent money on a new set of Sonic games. And boy, did I hit the jackpot! This collection has all the Sonic games I used to own: Sonic 1, 2, 3, Sonic & Knuckles, Sonic 3D, Sonic Spinball. It also has a bunch I hadn't heard of before: Sonic Labyrinth, Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, Sonic Drift, Sonic Chaos, Sonic Blast, and there's spots for unlockable games whose names they won't tell me! And I get to play them all on my game controller!

I tried Sonic Chaos. It's... weird. It has spin dash, and Tails, but the sound and image quality make it look like an older game than Sonic The Hedgehog. Weird.

My only problem so far was with Sonic 1, I was having difficulty sometimes getting Sonic to move to the left. Some of the jumps were a little off, as well.

So awesome!
