All right Winnipeg, you ready to RAWK?!?!

On Friday, Ali and her co-workers had their annual pig roast. This was the first time I have ever eaten slow cooked-peel-from-the-bone pig, and it was goooood.
Amazingly, the BBQ was over by 10:30 p.m. and as expected, we were some of the last people to leave. Some other "highlights" of the day included me suffering a mild sprain to my left ring finger from a football, me getting hit in the "no-no" zone by that same football, and then Ali's boss getting hit in the face by a smaller football, causing him to lose a lens from his sunglasses, and get cut on the bridge of the nose. To nobody's surprise, he left shortly thereafter.
The main lesson of all this? Don't play catch when you're drinking.

As we headed back to Zig and Alyssa's house, we were talking about a new video game that Zig had purchased. It was called Guitar Hero II, and it has consumed me. Since I am not gifted in the art of guitar, this will probably be as close to a "rock star" as I'll ever become.
You hold this mini guitar, select a song from the play list, then have to strum and hit the colour coded strings in time to the music. I've gotta say, even though I sucked, it was a blast.
I vowed the next time I play this game I will try it left handed. It was weird playing a guitar on the opposite side of which I am used to.
Get ready Zig, I'm ready for round 2.

Alright - it's time for "Let's Make a Deal".
You are permitted to buy Guitar Hero so long as I am allowed to buy my amp.
Deal?

But Guitar Hero is harder than playing a read guitar!

And of course you need an amp! If possible, look at the Spider range with built in effects!

Yeah, it's a deal.

I need a lefty guitar though...

Rock Chef said...

A Lefty guitar? Is that a red one where the strings are all the same thickness and the frets are all the same distance apart?

Boy, I'm on form today!
