So far, more bejeweled blitz and various flash games.

Going to close her out laid back style. It actually turned out to be a little more difficult than I had anticipated. It wasnt even getting past the monotony or anything. It was the physical things I didnt expect. Like, starting and going most of the first half on button mashers was a mistake. It wasnt so much my thumbs were getting sore as the tendons in my hands and wrist.
I can close my eyes and just see flashing lights that were burned into my retna 18 hours ago. Stuff like that.
It is possible it seems to play so much vg's you start to feel spinny in the head and all vertigoed out. At least for me.
Most importantly, waking up at 6 am to play a 24 hour event that starts at 8. Those 2 hours would have helped at the end.
Next year I will have to plan and prepare better.

Okay


10 A.m to 1 P.m represented the last 3 hours of my 24. I have to say, this was a real fun thing to do.With it all said and done, I cant say enough how awesome it is to help others more unfortunate than yourself. I went in just happy to reach the minimum "requested" amount of 100 dollars in pledges they asked for, and was even more thrilled to go a little over that. That final grand total of my pledges remains at 237 dollars. Added in to the total amount raised by everyone who participated in this event, the Children's Miracle Network on a whole received
1,100,000 dollars just in this one event yesterday. As I said a week ago, every little bit helps, and it all adds up huge. Thanks again to all who helped make that number.

I had expected that reaching the end of this that I would be happy to have it done, and would probably never want to grab a controller or mouse again. On the contrary, I learned a few things about my gaming self in this. You cant take the game out of a gamer. Hordes of villains slayed. Thousands of rounds fired. Too many Bejeweled Blitz gems swapped to count. I LOVED IT, and am a little sad it is over now.

Through the last 24 hours:

I have played

Castle Crashers
Resistance 3
Superstardust
Plants Vs. Zombies
Bejeweled Blitz
Call of Duty: Black Ops
Mario Kart Circuit (GBA)
Pop It
infamous
TMNT Turtles Through Time

and a few other various flash games to the ones listed above


I have consumed

3 Halloween Pop Tarts
1 sandwhich
4 slices of pizza
2 Excedrin Head ache tablets


Three pots of coffee (roughly 36 cups)
2 5 Hour Energy drinks
2 regular sized Red Bulls
2 bottles of water
and a can of diet soda (what. I have to keep this girlish figure somehow)



I unlocked

4 Trophies
2-3 gained Ranks in various FPS

Completed

3 story modes
One kick ass charity event


1,248 Zombies were slayed
53,900 coins earned in Bejeweled Blitz
29,400 Human soldiers deployed in Global Resistance
12 Psn Messages were sent with even more FB updates and posts here
10 pee breaks were had (hey. I drank a lot of chiz)
24 cigarettes smoked (smoking is bad kids. Dont start)
2 full recharges of PS Dual shock controls
1 headset accidentally broken Sad


Number of times I wish I hadnt done this after all...0

Cant wait until next year!

You had a perfect circle of them. It was like an auger wadey Stonehenge.
But yup, those few we played were "on the clock".

And thanks for reminding me. I forgot some of the most important thank you's. The peeps who kept me company in games.

wadey
jon
B (even though we never did get the stupid Castle Crasher invites to work, the thought was there and I appreciate it)
Groovster (even though I am not sure I can forgive him for the HC TDMs)
Biggest love to my my two littles. They were right there with me through every day light hour playing games, keeping tallies of things. Yesterday, I couldnt have found 2 bigger fans and cheer leaders. They were just awesome.

Man I forgot how fun Zombies is. And I see they have a lot of new dlc. I so wish I had the money for them. Moon looks neat.

Thanks. I had a lot of fun really. There were only a couple points where it became an actual challenge.
Otherwise the time actually goes much faster than you would think.

Great work! I wish I could have donated or joined online, but with work, the kids and the wife on pat leave. I couldn't do any of the above...

Hopefully you are rested and the nerves are jangling a bit less from all the caffeine your drank to stay up. Looking forward to playing for a 6th nation team next year. I bet we could raise some serious cash for a great cause.

Oh, agreed. Next year we'll get it rolling as early as we can sign up and get a team going.
Im sure we could set a 1-2k dollar goal and hit it.

The funny thing about all the caffeine, its only slightly more than what I consume everyday.
