Magic Candle

Elliot and me, reunited I was walking around on Grand Ave. (in Oakland) this afternoon with my sister, and we happened upon a little computer parts store (you know, where locals bring their computer to be fixed when things start crashing). We wandered in, and I saw... on the shelf... THE MAGIC CANDLE III! I played them when they were released back in 1990-1992, and remember being really immersed in the world they created. It is bringing back a specific, narrow nostalgia that only that game could invoke. Strange, that computer games can invoke such things. Hmmm. I seem to remember that I was playing simultaneously with Eugene Hung. I think he finished before I did.

I got to hang out with Elliot this evening -- it was the first time I've seen him in months, since I've been away on the opposite coast. It's good to be back. :)
