my brother rocks

23 07 2004

he sent me the BEST e-card ever for my birthday. (yes, that was a while ago–i forgot to post it, ok?) [2011 edit: the temporary online holding has long since expired, of course, so you can’t see it, but you can think about what it might have been based on what appears below]

when we were kids, back in the days of the dinosaur & before everybody even had an atari, let alone the super-cool intellevision my aunt bought to play d&d on, my daddy brought home one of those texas instruments keyboard-w/cartridge-slot computers (it could also, somehow, read programs on cassette-tapes that one could somehow get onto cassette tapes by typing code found in magazines, but i was 7 or 8 & a book-geek instead, so the technology really escapes me). our favorite game (meaning his to play & mine to watch) was called “parsec,” & it worked almost exactly like this (only w/scary cave-mouth graphics on the edge of the screen, & dangerous refueling maneuvers to carry out). how he found this, i haven’t the foggiest, but he’s the BEST brother ever. 🙂
