Today is my birthday(and Easter)! I just remembered it’s my twin sister’s birthday too, so happy birthday Allison! Anyway, one year Randall gave me Warcraft ( in a little software box-remember those?) as a present. I was livid. First of all, I hadn’t played the game in years! Secondly, it cost money to play! That turned into a fight… especially when I found out he threw out the receipt. Oh well, it was still nice of him.
Yup. Randall got some snazzy posters for his home office and the first thing he did while being surrounded by pure positivity, was play tower defense for three days! So….the posters definitely work. If you get any of these Startup Vitamins, as they’re called, be sure to have enough willpower to use them for good.
My Honeybuns and I are very different, so this concern of Randall’s comes up at times. In desperation to assure him we will always have something to enjoy together, I have offered to join a guild(World of Warcraft). I like computer games where as Randall can become ultimately consumed in them. Therefore, out of our own safety and sanity, we haven’t joined a guild yet. He says his Ubuntu operating system would also be an obstacle to accessing the game; this is the main reason I appreciate Ubuntu. 😀 I’m sure it saves marriages.
Steam for Linux will smother our marriage and shatter my world. I do like to game and Randall introduced me to Steam years ago. I, however, can stop gaming to do things like eat and sleep and live, whereas Randall simply cannot. Thanks to Steam finally coming out on Linux, I must strategically plan a few electricity outages to remind Randall who I am and that we have a relationship. My life got harder and his better. I see the fate of 2012 now, just when I thought we would make it.
