happy 30th birthday pacman

Greetings all,
Anyone else having a PacMan flash back??  So i guess PacMan & Space Invaders for me in the 80's is what Wii is to my children today.  It's their 30th birthday today, no doubt you noticed the awesome Google header today.  I'm off to sew while my son plays PacMan on my laptop!!

Play HERE & bring back the happy sounds of miss-spent youth, as PacMan chomps away or comes to his demise.  To me it's the sounds of my big brothers, who were already Uni students when i was 5 in 1980 & would have mega parties with PacMan-a-thons.  I do remember getting such a high score it went back to zero, oh well, we all turned out to be excellent at sports, maths & science plus really outdoorsy & creative??!!
Oh the Atari, i miss you, love that retro styling.  Love Posie

Just found out . . . ghosts are historically called: Blinky, Pinky, Inky & Clyde. Yes, Clyde, bit of a surprise name in there??
Bit like my friend who is married to an Andrew, with siblings named Katherine, Michael, John & Pedro. What?? Love Posie

Yes & yes, pacman used to keep us amused for hours. that and we had a tabletop space invaders game in our lounge room. well that was until dad came home from work and mum told him to be quiet until she finished her game! The cord got cut after that... fun times...lol

Happy birthday Pacman. Seems that he and I are of the same age. Wonder if he is having the same angst as I am over turning the big three-o
