Anyway, Matt and I are usually pretty boring. We're always having a blast, but from an outside perspective you probably wouldn't think so. We wouldn't make for very good reality TV, is what I'm saying.
Sometimes he comes over and we do couples stuff like go out for dinner or ride bikes or sit in a Starbucks and discuss whether we prefer the Marvel or DC universe.
Sometimes we stay in and watch Mythbusters or a movie or try to get through as many episodes of Neon Genesis Evangelion as we can before I fall asleep (I actually like NGE... but that's another post).
Sometimes we end up spending 3 1/2 hours doing quizzes on Sporcle, my absolute favorite procrastination tool. Once we did one where you have to name all the Generation One Pokemon characters, and we got all of them except two. #thatkindofgeek
Sometimes I realize I needed to upload and edit some pictures and I do that for 40 minutes while Matt watches hockey (alternately, sometimes we watch hockey together).
But my point is that when my sister, Matt, and I get together, everything is way more hilarious. For instance, Matt and I had played Super Mario Wii before, and we'd had a good time marveling over the game and taking it extremely seriously. Here's a sample of quotes from those nights, to give you an idea of the mood:
Wow, this level is really fun.
I love how faithful they were to the original game.
What are Goombas supposed to be?
I wonder why we haven't found any Warp Zones yet.
etc., so on.
But last night Mel played too. Now I'll share the quotes that were generated from that event.
The "Anyone Listening Who Didn't Know What We Were Doing Would Be Confused" ones:
It'd be nice if it were the end of the world, but it's not.
::Gasp! It is! It IS the end of the world!
The "Penguin" series, which there were many of, since we were in the ice level:
It's impossible without being a penguin, don't you agree?
It's never a penguin when you need it to be.
I don't think he needs to be a penguin here.
And my personal faves, the "That's What She Said" ones:
Awww, you forgot to be big.
Oh! Shake your thing up and down. Shake it up and down. There you go.
Yay! Now you can beat it even more!
So I guess the moral of this story is, hooray for sisters. And hooray for video games. And hooray for quotes taken out of context. All of those things make life a little more awesome.
