happy birthday to my good friend mario
i have spent hours and hours playing various iterations of mario. the most intense period took place in the basement of 6 douglas drive. i was preteen and would play for hours on end while eating cheez whiz and chips and or sour cream and onion flavored microwave popcorn. then in college at ND, my fellow knott hall roommate, crust, shared my passion for mario. we played endlessly, often to the chagrin of our other roommates. today, i have super mario brothers, super mario galaxy, wario ware smooth moves for my wii. we went to town on it just last week — playing for several hours and failing to conquer bowser. we’ll get that mugg for sure. and until then, happy birthday little guy. here we go!
