Do you play super mario bros online games on weekends? Or whenever you have time? Well, I do. Ahah!
Super Mario Bros was one of the first games I fell in love with, and it stays a top ranked choice for me nowadays.
Do you know about Super Mario’s history, do you? Shigeru Miyamoto came up with one of gaming’s most recognizable and beloved characters when he came onto the scene and became Nintendo’s mascot, appearing in over two hundred games. Mario isn’t limited to being the Italian plumber from the Mushroom Kingdom who, one many occasions, finds himself off on an adventure to save the beautiful Princess Peach, but he also appears in sports, puzzle, racing and fighting games as well.
In 1995 he was voiced by Charles Martinet. His first appearance came in Donkey Kong where he had to jump over barrels thrown by a gigantic monkey to save the princess for the first time. Amazing history, isn’t it? Oh, I’m also in love with the live movie from the 80’s. You should go watch that; definitely!
So, today we continue making Super Mario’s history with online versions of the game, as well as many entertaining spin-offs, such like mario tower defense or mario kart. I play these spin-off games regularly and they’re quite fun, even though nothing could ever replace the Original.
Is there a Super Mario product (game, movie, etc.) that you particularly love?
Or another game that you fell in love with years ago?
Sports! Oh love!

I’m an active girl, you know. And I’ve gotta say that it is my dream to one day coach a sport like hockey, soccer, football… or even just have fun with virtual ice games! Ahah! I’d love to even do it as a volunteer, while I do the other job I love (professional dancing). I don’t mind.
I would love to help little ones get excited about getting active and living a healthy lifestyle that will last a lifetime.
Also, did you know sports is so much more beneficial to you than just for your body? A little girl who plays a sport like football or hockey is statstically MORE LIKELY to leave a partner who beats her! Think of how we could stomp out domestic violence if we just opened more team sports and made it readily available to kids who need it most; think of how we could slam the drug culture into a submission hold because a little wrestler values his/her sport more than a poisonous pill!
It’s one thing to keep your body healthy in a physical sense, but think of the emotional, mental and spiritual health that accompanies a sport; self-esteem, respect, dignity, graciousness, friendly competition. And it’s good to test your feet skills anyway, so to speak.
These are all things I value so much, I think the best way I can demonstrate my values is to teach them one day, even if it is just part time. Part time is better than NO time!
Oh well, I’m off to play with the looney tunes before my sister(s) start complaining that it’s getting too late.
Happy Saturday night (and upcoming Sunday), everybody!
P.S. Noticed that my PR1 is back? ;) Thanks Big G, too! Hehe.
