Yep. Just went to a movie theater with a friend and we spent 90-some minutes jumping on that “In the Groove 2″ machine in the arcade.
Good use of a Saturday, I’d imagine. Instead of spending $12.50 on a movie, we each spent $10 getting exercise, becoming awesome at rhythm dancing, and listening to the Bumblebee song over and over again. Then we grabbed some quick sushi on the way out (not at the theater, even though that would be awesome.)
I spent the rest of the weekend (and week) working on “Incinerations.” Still making some awesome headway on it. I can now play through most of the third chapter and solve a bunch of puzzles. I’ve got my night group going on for the next five weeks, so that’s still holding me back a little on getting any major work done.
Did I mention my group yet? For the last thirteen weeks, I’ve been going to a psychotherapy group to help me fix my communication problems with people and get over whatever emotional baggage I have locked away. It’s one of those things where we sit around in a circle and relate to each other’s stories, just like on Fight Club, only with no hugging, and a lot more volleyball. I’m guessing I’m making some massive progress since I’m actually blogging about it now and not giving a crap about what other people may think of me.
That’s right – I’m in therapy. Got a problem with it? I’ll hit you in the neck with a chair.
I actually pity anyone who’s never gone to therapy or thinks little of it based on the pathetic reputation it gets from movies. It’s like karate for the psyche. Get good enough and you can only hope to someday bring your own therapist to tears.
