    I've been pretty quiet in the I/O lately because I came down with COVID-19. My wife came down with symptoms over a week ago (got tested and confirmed) and a couple of days later, I started experiencing symptoms. A few days after me, my elder son became symptomatic and a couple of days later, the younger son became symptomatic.
    It's a day to day thing -- some days are worse than others. Hopefully, things will be much better for me after this week. My wife was feeling very good today, so hopefully, she's on the mends. Lots of body aches and low grade fever.
    Gaming wise, I haven't been able to play much if at all. However, I've watched a lot of Star Trek while resting.

    For absolutely no reason, I watched Little Shop of Horrors yesterday in the middle of the night. Just out of nowhere I decided to watch it on my phone.
    I should clarify that this is the 1960 version I watched, not the musical. I've never seen the musical/movie adaptation of it before.
    I honestly loved this movie so much. It's not good, mind you, but it's entertaining. It's campy and corny as all hell. I laughed a couple of times actually. It's nice that it doesn't take itself too seriously. There's one scene in the movie when Audrey comes over to Semour's mother's house for dinner. She takes a drink of something and says something along the lines of "This tastes like cough syrup". Without skipping a beat, the mother says "Doctor FLYNN'S cough syrup!" That got a chuckle out of me. There are a lot of little moments like that and plenty of slapstick as well. That stuff just makes this low-budget film burst with charm.
    This movie reminds me a TON of Help!, the Beatles film. The humor is very similar in the two. 
    I highly recommend watching this "so bad it's good" movie. I love this. I know it isn't everybody's cup of tea but it's at least worth a shot. It's up on YouTube in its entirety.

    The Kung Fu cart for Commodore 64 arrived this week, and it works really nicely. This is the product I've been wanting for a long time -- just load game images of any type onto a micro-SD, turn on the C64, and choose them from a menu. No typing, minimal waiting. It's so awesome.
    And also a view of my home-made "safe" C64 power adapter.  I soldered in modern 5V and 9V bricks into a 5-pin DIN plug, and add in a Ray Carlson safety device just for full safeness.

    Playing Sonic CD for the first time. Quite a trippy game. Really fun though. (Edit: Just beat it. Unfortunately didn't manage to get the good ending. Stardust Speedway is confusing, and Metallic Madness is a pain. Also, the race against Metal Sonic is very unforgiving. But a very fun game regardless. Surprised it took me so long to play it.)

    💻 I remember the days of AOL chat when most people couldn’t upload or send pics online yet, and so you just had to guess if a girl was attractive based on how she described herself and whether she had a cute screen name like “AbercrombieGirl17” or something.
    The first girl I ever had an e-relationship with I met on Tumyeto Skate Chat (long gone website) in 1996. Her username was “*~luckycharms~*or something. Talked on the phone with her every night for months and had no idea what she looked like until she mailed me a letter and photo

    I'm so excited. My thirteen games from Scott (which I mentioned earlier) are finally on their way here. The USPS has been super slow recently, but I don't mind waiting. I'm excited to share them with you when they arrive tomorrow (according to the USPS tracker, though it may be delayed).

    I guess it's confession time.
    I've never told anyone about this before because I felt a little embarrassed about it, but ever since Algebra class last year, I've had a crush on this girl who was at the same table as I. We used to laugh and fool around and have all the fun. I have no idea how I even passed that class. We messed around the entire period every single day.
    I've never quite felt this way before, and I've kept it completely to myself for the last year. This was one of the tougher parts of the pandemic for me, as silly as that sounds. We've kept in touch the whole time, though it really isn't the same. I was always scared of asking her out at the time because I was scared of rejection, though I was pretty sure she liked me back. I think that it's damn time I do something about it all, virus permitting. Even if I do get friendzoned or something, I would have at least put myself out there. Nothing will come of sitting here wishing for things.
    I figure just talking about it would probably help me feel better about it. Like I said, I haven't said a word to anybody about this. Talking about it to another person will probably help me feel a bit more confident about it all. Sorry for the excessive blabbering about high school garbage like this.
