Lately I’ve just been disenfranchised by the gaming lifestyle. Nothing is calling my name. I don’t get the thrills and adventure I used to get gaming so I went looking for another hobby. And boy did I find exactly what I was looking for!
Friends let me introduce you to my new hobby: Extreme Ironing.
This is not a joke. This is a real thing people do. It’s not even a new sport even though I just learned about it. According to Wikipedia it started in 1997! It’s official though as there is a U.S. chapter that founded last year that I can join.
I’m not crazy and it is totally awesome. I mean you have to iron your clothes anyway, right? Might as well do it in some sort of unique and extreme way. I wonder if this means I’ll need to start drinking Mt. Dew again.
Some of it is a bit more than I can chew. I mean I don’t rock climb or anything but Merric has lost so much weight and is a super muscle man now so I figure I can have him do some of the more extreme stunts and I can take the pictures. It can be a family hobby!
I think I’ll be spending the rest of the week working on new branding to the site to show of the new focus of this blog. I don’t want people think we talk about games here. Well lets face it first they’ll be amazed at the extreme ironing photos but after that I think they’ll feel misled. That is not what I am going for here. I want it to be clear Merric and my new passion is Extreme Ironing and that is what we will be talking about from now on.
So who’s with me? Chuck that computer and your consoles and other gaming nonsense out the window and join me in some extreme ironing!
