Old Grandma Hardcore

This blog is the chronicle of my experiences with Grandma, the video-game playing queen of her age-bracket and weight class. She will beat any PS2, XBox, GameCube, etc., console game put in front of her, just like she always has. These are her stories. She is absolutely real. She lives in Cleveland.

    Dear Grandma,
    I'm so glad you're going to be ok! Let that strapping young grandson of yours carry all the heavy stuff from now on. In fact, make MTV hire you a slew of hand- and footservants so that you don't even have to pause your game to get your own buttered popcorn.

    I sit here, trying to mumble something distracting about "musta got something in my eye" while I quickly remove all tell-tale traces of wussiness before someone catches on. My advice for E3 is rent a wheelchair or one of those power scooter things because the bottom half of the body wears out much quicker than the top half at these affairs. Also, warn the family that there may be trouble fitting everything into the car on the way home from the airport because you both could have some seriously swelled heads. Real Life may not treat both of you as celebrities, but you'll totally be celebrities at E3 & hey, how cool is that?

    Goodness, I saw the tag for the youtube video of "cancer" and I was terrified.

    I am so happy to hear that everything's going to be OK! I hope you have an amazing time at E3, I can't think of anyone who deserves to go more.

    Wow I'm such a pussy, I almost cried. Good to hear everything is ok.

    Hey how about Nintendo eh? Did you see the Game Informer? Wow, I'm real excited now that I have something concrete to look at for the console.

    Have a great time at E3!

    I happened across this site about a week ago when I was searching stuff on Fatal Frame III. I thought it was awesome that she plays games first off, but even more awesome that she plays the same things as I do (action, horror, rpg's). I've watched all the video's and thought they were great and showed the real spirit of Grandma.

    I don't have an account at Blogspot since I do all my blogging/friend networking at MySpace but I made sure to bookmark this page for later viewing.

    When I first started watching this I was worried by the tone of the video...what could have happened...but I was relieved when the news came back that everything was fine. I hope you have a safe trip to e3 and a quick recovery! Keep gaming, and I'll keep checking back for new vid's ^_^

    ::hug:: Oh man, I watched with my heart in my throat and tears in my eyes... SO HAPPY that things are OK. SO HAPPY! ::cheer:: Please let us know what your schedule is for being down here, and for E3... I wanna see you guys!

    I've gotta stop before I throw more relieved leaping-up-and-down superlatives at you, but the relief is seriously palapable. I'm so glad Grandma is ok. Whew. Whew. Must calm down. So relieved.

    Take care, be well, (more later ;) ) and GAME ON!

    -A!

    Man i was scared s***less. I thought she died or something. Don't do that to me.

    Well wishes to grandma and to you! I'm happy that everything turned out OK!

    Tim, you are very artistic. That video was proof.

    *big hugs* You had us all very worried there for a while. When the video said "bone cancer" my brain seized up in horror. I'm so glad that it isn't, though of course I'm sorry that Grandma's in pain. I agree with Bi-coastal Eddie about the wheelchair/scooter options - you might feel a bit weird in them, but you'll be a lot more comfortable and let's face it, you're going to E3 to enjoy yourself, right? Not to be in too much pain to move.

    Game on, Grandma! Game on, Tim!

    Hey Tim,

    I would have been more worried if I hadn't glanced down at the first comment. I'm very glad that Grandma is going to be okay and I hope she has a fantastic time at E3.

     
  • At 2:21 PM, Blogger Maharet said…

    that was such a great video. it took all my strength to choke back the tears that were about to come pouring down my face. tim, your an amazing story teller and i count myself lucky to have discovered your site. :)

    good luck to you and your grams and have a fantastic time at E3. by the way a scooter sounds like the way to go. E3 sounds like a whole lotta walking and why do it if you don't have to right!

    have fun!

    Hi Grandma.
    My first post here. I've been watching your blog for some months now but never typed anything because my english is not very good. I'm from Portugal and i've known you from a portuguese gamers forum. We know you :). But about this i've had to write something. My father has 70 years old and have bone cancer for 3 years now. I'm very glad that you don't :). But he's a strong man and a very optimistic guy and never quited. He's better now and the chemical treatments have been working. About your philosophy of life "if we expect the worst when good things happens it feels wonderfull"... I'm all that Grandma...


    Game on Grandma... Game on...
    You are a symbol of life...

    P.s. Sorry for any crappy english... I've done my best. Happy E3. Live On!

    Soup is good food and fixing your broken credit is good for you too. If credit repair is lowering your interest rate then bad credit repair mortgage loan fix repair credit bankruptcy foreclosure equity equifax experian TU dispute and that will help home and real estate debt to raise their FICO. So have some soup and I hope this post made you smile...bad credit repair FICO :)
