“It’s-a me, Mario!” -Super Mario 64
One of my favorite childhood memories is playing Super Mario brothers at my Grandma’s house, with my sister. We were never very skilled at the game, but would play for hours at a time. There was a small TV, with the NES attached, set up in the far corner of our Grandma’s bedroom, but still close enough to the bed that we would have somewhere comfortable to sit. If I can close my eyes, I can still remember exactly how it looked. And today, Mother’s Day, makes me want to think about this time even more – I miss you Grams!
It’s funny how memories can be jogged with a simple glimpse at a picture of something from your childhood. Please join me in reminiscing, as I share the following amazing finds.
10 – 1UP Mushroom Cuff Links
Next time you’re trying to figure out what to get the geek guy(s) in your life, keep these in mind. I love when guys wear cuff links, and it’s even better when they represent something special to him.
9 – Invincibility Star Earrings
One of my favorite parts of playing Super Mario Bros. was when you catch the “Starman” and you can be invincible for the short time. The flashing Mario has always been one of my favorite graphics.
