Flashback Friday! 80's Arcade Games Addition

                                        Hello Peeps...It's FRIDAY....
                                          (((Flashback Friday)))
                                     80's Arcade Games Addition

When I was a young girl, I used to walk to and from school.
Yup...you know the saying...up hill, down hill~both ways..through rain/sleet/snow/ice/tornado's





 ...what I'm trying to say is, rarely was I ever taken to school via
vehicle...I walked.  And, I'm glad. I used to have the best time ever after school stopping off at our local small town grocery store before reaching the homefront.  Inside that store were 2 video games that I loved to play...PAC MAN and CENTIPEDE

Pac Man was everyone's favorite video game back then it seemed.  Usually there was a group of us whom tried to master each others' high scores.  I couldn't wait to show up the guys...I have to admit, I was pretty good at beating the first 2 levels...then I was toast.  Jezz, how many levels are there in Pac Man...see if you can locate the answer here. and let me know.  I'm wanting to say in the hundreds, but I could be wrong.  Pac Man was released in 1980 and never lost it's popularity...In fact, he's still making appearances on TV...and recently celebrated his 30th birthday last year.


I just love that little dot-eatin...waka waka waka waka waka slice-taken-out-of-a-pizza lookin guy

But, I will say CENTIPEDE was my ultimate THRILLING Arcade game experience in the 80's.
And according to this youtube video, it had an Awesome Female Fan base...I was one of 'em for sure!
Learn/watch/listen a bit about why I was thrilled to play this game.(warning~children should not listen/not to be viewed for the easily offended)   


I do own the hand held Pac Man and Centipede games you plug into your TV...
FUN...but if you can't find them play them
below:

They are QUITE fun to play when I'm wanting to re-live my 80's video game obsession.  But, my ultimate thrill would be to own the original arcade games from the 80's.  I'd love to have both Pac Man and Centipede in my garage to play while waiting on clients or whenever I felt a little competition arising...

So, friends/family/clients....come see me at The Backyard Beauty and Book Boutique and help fund my dream of getting 'em...Yes, there WILL be a jar to place loose change in...
If someone can come up with a perfect name to place on the outside of the jar I will give them a free wax...guys, you can benefit from this too...My boys do get their eyebrows waxed.  Men need to look their best, as well. 

Comment below with suggested Names of my Jar...and I'll pick a winner within a few weeks...and Enjoy your weekend!!

I loved CENTIPEDE!!!!! That was my all time favorite game! Do you also remember Q-bert? that was also one of my favs.

Carolyn said...

Yes, I DO remember Q-bert!! awww, Centipede was just some much FUN to play...and do well around the guys...cause they never could play worth a hoot!!

Bill said...

Nice work on the pizza Pac Man. No Ms. Pac Man? :)

Carolyn said...

You're right Bill, I should have paid tribute to Ms. Pac Man as well. But, she just didn't strike my fancy like Pac MAN. I believe it was her bow...it annoyed me!
Now, if she was rockin' a guitar or a Def Leppard concert shirt I'd been "game". LOL

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in
it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to
drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this
is excellent blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.

I almost never write comments, but after looking at a few of the comments on this page "Flashback Friday! 80's Arcade Games Addition".
I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you don't mind. Is it simply me or do a few of these comments appear like they are written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on additional online social sites, I'd like to keep
up with you. Could you post a list of all of your social community pages like your twitter
feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

Hello there, I believe your web site could possibly
be having browser compatibility issues. Whenever I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening
in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues.
I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up! Besides that, fantastic site!

Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd figured I'd ask.

Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe
guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My blog addresses a lot of
the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit
from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me
