Mario Kart as a Metaphor For Life

Bear with me for a moment here, people. (XKCD rocks!) This will have a point. (Whether it's totally a judgment call on your part.) When I was a kid, my bestest childhood friend and I used to spend hours playing Mario Kart, a racing game for the Super Nintendo. She would kick my butt routinely -- though not quite as badly as when we played Street Fighter -- and sometimes, I'd be trying my hardest not to win (because I didn't have a chance!) but to avoid being beaten by more than one lap. There's nothing like getting passed for the second time :)

And so it is now in CPH-land. Kabs is thinking about starting a second one, and it'll probably be started before I finish mine...but I'll be damned if she finishes a second before I finish my first! It's on.

SWEET! I'm totally going to cast on RIGHT NOW. Hurry hurry hurry! :) I know you can beat me, just freaking do it!

You probably lost in Mario Kart because you weren't being Yoshi. Everyone knows that Yoshi is the best.
