Step 1: Got husband addicted to pinball on the virtual tables on Pinball Arcade.
Step 2: Found/bought JP.
Step 3: Played virtual pinball while waiting for JP; put money towards Twilight Zone kickstarter.
Step 4: JP arrived. Decorated pinball area then played nonstop when not sleeping, working, or lurking Pinside.
Step 5: Got all excited about MM, FH, Bride of Pinbot, etc on virtual pinball. Began countdown to 6/26 release date, happily contemplated how much money I was saving over the real things.
Step 6: Went home from work yesterday, tried to play virtual MM. Screamed "What the hell?!?" at the TV a few times because suddenly now the physics are all off, the flippers are delayed, and all I could do was get the ball in the other flipper lane. Realize virtual pinball sucks.
Step 7: Threw down controller. Went back to real pinball. Fed T-Rex (his name is Chompy) a few goats.
