Hepped Up on Goofballs

16 05 2007

Last night we had Scott over for a wonderful Adonis Steak BBQ, and a little Guitar Hero battle.

Scott was telling us about his girlfriend’s evil cat, so we decided to give Scott some of our Premium cat nip to mellow out the devil cat.

We put it in a little snack-sized zip-lock baggie.  We were laughing about the fact that if Scott got stopped by the cops on his drive back into the city and they found the baggie, he’d surely get in shit (it was totally more than for personal use, if you know what I mean)

We put the baggie on the counter and forgot about it as we dined on wonderfully prepared steak, baked potatos, grilled asparagus. . . .  .

We retired to the basement for some all out battle of the bands in Guitar Hero, then we hear a small crash of a plate hitting the floor and a mad scramble of paws and claws along the wood floors.

Scott and I didn’t think much of it, its a common sound in our house and Colin was upstairs at the time.

About 10 minutes later Scott went upstairs to get Colin (it was his turn to play Thunderkiss 65 on Hard).

Scott discovered 3 Slothy Bob Marley-esque mellowed cats lounging in the middle of the dinning room with a bag of the good stuff ripped and strewn across the floor.  I can just imagine the conversations the three of them were having, I’m sure there was some Bevis and Butthead “huuuhuuuu” laughing among them.

(Not one of my cats – but it sets a picture for the scene. . . hahaha)

Quickly after they were discovered they decided to become super-active and run up and down the stairs like mad fools.  Chasing each other, trying to nip each other’s tails.  There was quite a few little scraps and hiss fits.  In the immortal words of the Simpsons, they were certainly ‘Hepped up on Goofballs’

I thought given the antics, perhaps I should feed them their evening meal, this was to ensure they didn’t get the ‘munchies’ later.

They acted the fool for the remainder of the evening.  And I got the stern talking to from Colin reminding me that I shouldn’t ‘give’ the cats ‘nip in such high dosages.

I kept trying to tell him that they’d simply helped themselves.

Needless to say my moggies got locked out of the bedroom last night. . .  .hopefully they are sleeping off the trip right now and I have normal & well behaved moggies when I get home.

No more ‘nip for a while.

Guitar Hero Deal of the Century

1 03 2007

As many of you who frenquent my blog know (Thank you to the faithful four! 😉 ) Colin and I are addicted to the Playstation 2 game GUITAR HERO. 

We were reading the newspaper in Toronto, and as a heavenly rays of light shone brightly against the newsprint, our eyes were quickly drawn to an add for a sleezy “Just fell off the truck” electronics store in Mississauga/Toronto that were selling Guitar Hero 1, with Guitar and Game for $38.99!

We went and picked ourselves up a copy (we already have Guitar Hero 2) – we also picked up a copy for my brother Matthew, who now only greets me with, “Hey, Yo, so di’ya bring Guitar Hero?”

I really wanted to get Guitar Hero one, I have been looking for a used copy of just the game (I figured that with most used PS2 games they usually run about 20 bucks).  No such luck!  The game is so popular that people just don’t sell their copies back to the stores.  A real true testiment to the brilliance of this game.  Pretty much every EB Games from Montreal to Toronto has NO used copies, and the game itself if you buy it new from a store is usually about 50 bucks!

I am ever so pleased with the deal we got!  No we have 2 guitars!  I’m looking forward to Jammin’ with Colin in the basement!
