My 16 year old son is a big-time X-box 360 gamer. For those of you out there who don’t know any better, this is how teenage boys spend their free time with their friends. They can play video games “online” and talk with each other, plan, make teams, etc….while battling Natzi-zombies (Call of Duty Black Ops), or other evil disgusting things. The graphics in these games are light-years beyond the days of playing “Atari’s” pong.
Anyway, from time to time, my son will come and get me to watch something he says is, “so awesome”. I will stop what I am doing, as this IS our quality time (when he wants to share something with me). I go into his game-room, plop down on the couch and try to decipher what is happening on the TV screen. I usually have no clue what I am watching, or what I am supposed to be looking for, so I ask him for a quick update to clue me in.
Usually, his idea of “awesome”, and mine are quite different. He likes killing everything, especially the zombies….the bloodier the better. Me on the other hand, I don’t like gory stuff, so I usually don’t watch those excerpts for very long.
Tonight was different, he comes into the room, “Mom, you have to come see this” He’s laughing between his talking. “This is hilarious…you have to come see it.”
“Ok, what is it?”
“I’m trying this new game….Techno Kitten Adventure.”
“What?” I can hear some crazy techno-music playing. “Ok, sure, I have to see this.”
I follow him to the game-room, he starts the game…..it looks like an eight-year old made this game….and it is really funny. A cat is flying through the air with a jetpack on its back….you have to guide it pass obstacles, while things fly towards it from the psychedelic sky/background. When you die (or rather when kitty dies), it falls and breaks into pieces…while meowing as it falls.
It really is hilarious….that made my evening.

I just love the part of the description that kitty is fueled by “Hopes and dreams”. Do kittens have hopes and dreams?
Wow….it is so awesome!
