I Went to Jersey. Wii!!

Howdy Everyone!Had a pretty great weekend, hope you all did as well.  I hit 4 out of the 5 burrows and New Jersey this weekend.  
I went to a halloween festival type thing out in Flemmington NJ with some friends from Bklyn.  I was pleasantly shocked by south Jersey, I really was.  Back roads, trees, stars, country music and RANDOM legit southern accents from the locals.  It was a pretty neat little event.  There was a 45 minute hayride (ha!) that took us out through the woods and people would jump out and (try to) scare people.  A few people were REALLY into it and screaming like crazy.  Much enjoyment for people like me who don’t spook very easily.  After the hayride they drop you off at the south end of a cornfield (at night, mind you) with a maze cut out into it.  It’s not really a maze of course, just a winding path back to the main festival.  There were people set up in there as well.  Man, I want that job.  A couple of the more convincing spooks had chainsaw motors with fake pointy ends on them.  Sounded darn convincing though.  I have to admit one of those guys got me pretty good.  He waited for us to walk past and then cranked it up from behind.  Had he not been the size of three of me he might have been in trouble.  Exiting the cornfield opens you up to the line for the haunted house.  I was underwhelmed with that as it was very predictable where everyone was going to be.  I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the Resident Evil video game series for desensitizing me and teaching me how to check my surroundings for zombies.

Also this weekend I broke down and got

Metroid Prime 3 and Excite Truck for the Wii.  My life is a little more complete now.  As a result, you may not hear from me for a week or two lol.  Be sure and check out the video for Excite Truck and note how you steer.  Wonderful use of the Wii technology.I suppose that’s it for now.  I’m ready to finish up October and get on with November (So I can get on with December and go see my family).
Y’all be good!
