I follow lots of blogs, and have wide area of interest. Feminism, books, crafts, birth advocacy, celebrity gossip (this is a horrible guilty pleasure, but I only go to the site that makes fun of them!). I also visit Cracked.com for their stupid-funny articles, and of course there’s Fark, for not-news.
But a special place is reserved for Grandma, of Old Grandma Hardcore renown. She truly is a lady after my own heart. She’s a hardcore gamer girl, as well as being proficient in sailor-like cussing. Combine these two, and you have some of the greatest gaming rants of all time.
Her grandson Tim began to blog about and film her gaming sessions, and she is now a famous character in the video gaming community as well as YouTube. She receives advance copies of games, a pass to the famous E3 gaming expo, and she’s on a first-name basis with some of the big names in game development.
A few months ago, she went through heart-bypass surgery, and the recovery has been grueling and slow. I’ve been jonesing for a Grandma fix, and today we finally got an update.
She’s getting better every day. I’m so excited to hear about what she’s been playing, because as a fellow gamer girl, I value her opinion. I also think she’s freakin hilarious, and I hope I’m as tough (and totally awesome) as she is when I grow up.
We’re all rooting for you, Grandma.
Get Well Soon!
For your viewing pleasure, Grandma plays Overlord.
