Getting my Vitamin V

I made a huge jump in my previously-denied Geekdom a couple months ago... I got an xBox Live account of my very own! This means that I can play all of *my* games without interrupting my husband's video game intake (i.e. his daily Vitamin V supplement). Years ago my brother gave me a hand-me-down N64 after he graduated to the newer system. This xBox, however, is the first that I can truly call my own... specifically for me!!! :o) So my thoughts on having it all to myself?

  1. I love, Love, LOVE it!
  2. Tim's account holds all of my high scores from games before the switch... I'm now working really hard to try to get my new scores above the ones I got him. It's pretty darn hard to top a score of 338 in TMNTs... not to mention Hexic!
  3. For the first couple weeks, I hardly went online at all... all my friends were real life friends that have an xBox too. I started playing online, and, at first, it was disappointing. Every game had loud-mouth, obnoxious players... but after playing for a little while, I started getting messages!! Apparently, non-obnoxious players like to stick together... since then I've made several friends from around the U.S. (& Britain!), and had complete blast playing!!!
  4. If you didn't know, I'm an observer. A people-watcher. Listening to some of these kids over the headset is quite hilarious!
