Things I Love As Much As Books (4)

So, I think it's a given that I love to read. Don't we all?
The thing is, though, there are a TON of other things in my life that I love just as much as reading. Sure, most of these things aren't as constant as reading, but they count just as much in my life when I'm loving them.
SO, I decided to start this weekly feature in which I write a short post about something in my life that I am loving just as much as reading!

Since today is my BIRTHDAY (yay! I'm 28!), I thought I would write about one thing that I love above all others.

Dr. Mario

I don't know if I really need to say more than that. When I got to Japan, I bought a a FamCom Emulator just so that, since I wasn't able to bring my Wii or my Nintendo, I would be able to continue playing Dr. Mario. I own one game for my FC Tech, and that game is Dr. Mario. Despite the fact that I like to fit in at least an hour of reading a day and that I have constant tests and quizzes everyday and blogs to update and homework to be doing an English lessons to be preparing, I STILL manage to play my FC Tech, and thus Dr. Mario, for at least 4 hours a week.

If you've never heard of the good Dr., well, the game is basically like Tetris, but a bagazillion times better. You have these viruses*, and Dr. Mario throws pills down, and you have to stack the pills on the viruses* to kill them. The awesomeness is almost too much for me. It's bed time, and I need to read a bit before sleep, but writing this now, I'm feeling like I might need to go play a round first.

*If this perhaps sounds weird to you, do not fear, it also sounds weird to me. There is actually lots of debate over the true plural of the word virus, as it was uncountable as a Latin word, but the overall accepted form is, indeed, viruses.

Happy birthday!! I've never played Dr. Mario, but I have become so addicted to various games on my iPhone, I'm sure if he found his way to being an app, I'd love playing.
