Maggie and I were watching a documentary earlier on Apollo 8. The Saturn V rocket, the guidance computer and DSKY input, the space sextant — it was all a technological marvel.
And then I remembered when I was 10 or 11 and finally got my highly anticipated NASA Space Shuttle game for my Atari 2600.
Activision worked with NASA to ensure the accuracy and challenge of Space Shuttle. It is one of the most complicated games ever made for the Atari 2600.
Get the fuck out. One had to successfully launch, pilot the craft into outer space, and then return home. Activision made the best games and I was overly excited to be an 8-bit astronaut.
I played it for about an hour and then never again. Because I didn’t get to shoot any aliens or even get outta the damn cockpit for some moon-walking.

For 6 tickets you can get 20 salsa, cheese, onions, and cilantro any time you like! No more excuses for dying on the highway because you ran out of salsa.
20 salsa for 6 tickets is pretty good.

It’s just after 8am on a Saturday morning. The sun is shining, the coffee has been brewed. Maggie is with her mom.
I think that means I’m supposed to play video games in my underwear until noon.

There’s been a big shakeup in Monopoly’s eight classic game pieces. Say goodbye to the boot, wheelbarrow and thimble tokens.
The ouster of the classic trio is the result of an online vote Monopoly parent Hasbro (HAS) held in January at VoteMonopoly.com, marking the first time in Monopoly’s 82-year history that Hasbro crowdsourced the future of the game.
Voters were faced with a choice: Should Hasbro replace some — or all — of the traditional game pieces like the top hat and boot with more culturally relevant items like a hashtag, emoji or computer?
More than 4.3 million votes determined the newly configured group of eight: a T-Rex, rubber ducky and penguin will join the five classic tokens Scottie the dog, hat, car, cat and battleship. The boot, wheelbarrow and thimble won’t appear in the game starting this fall.
The boot was my favorite 😢 and I would go for the wheelbarrow after the hat.
