When I was a kid, I wanted to be an astronaut, a detective, and an archaeologist.
Now somewhat older, I find myself wanting to be a Veritech or Viper pilot, an ocarina-playing, puzzle-solving adventurer, a rogue wielding the sharpest of blades when facing dragons, a vanguard brokering peace, protecting her friends, and maybe, just maybe, saving the galaxy.
If there’s anything the years have given me, it’s the ability to be a little more specific in my ambitions. ^_^
I’ve discovered that when I’m trying to perk myself up, I hum the Legend of Zelda theme.
Loudly. And I may or may not inject dramatic hand gestures.
…there’s just a lot of awe and want. And the urge to go grab my pillow and a blanket and just settle in.

Classic Ads: Star Wars (1983)
The game is available as a standard upright or a sit-down cockpit version, both of which are elaborately decorated. It features several digitized samples of voices from the movie, including Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Alec Guinness as Obi-Wan Kenobi, James Earl Jones as Darth Vader, Harrison Ford as Han Solo, the mechanized beeps of R2-D2, and the growls of Chewbacca.

…I saw this and immediately checked my pockets for quarters. >_>

|Me:||Same here. I wanted to be Han Solo.|
|Friend:||You always say that! Didn't you want to be something else?|
