I was going to call this one "Crisis of Biblical Proportions", but my husband said it was probably irreverent to compare the problem of our still-missing TV to things like the Parting of the Red Sea or the Ten Plagues of Egypt.
We have, well... HAD a really nice TV. I mostly blog, but I listen to the TV frequently while Rob watches. It's gone, though, and I miss it. I miss being able to watch videos. I miss movie night with the kids.
Another thing I miss is video games. Total addict. It's a little bit embarrassing because I try to talk to my peers about video games and apparently I'm the only 40-something woman I know who still plays them. And on top of it I like first-person shooters. On the other hand, if Rob were ever to leave me because he's tired of me talking about him on my blog I can easily get a date because guys love girls who love first-person shooters.
He'll never leave me, though, because he knows we'd have a big fight over all the electronics equipment. And I could never leave him because I don't know how to hook all of it up anyway. We have what scientists call a "symbiotic relationship".
Since I can't actually play any video games, I pretend I could go buy more equipment and accessories at ShopWiki which is a very cool place to shop since it compiles about 485,000 different shops in one place. Okay, actually just about 30,000... but still.
I check frequently on the Nintendo Wii since we don't have one of those and I'd like one for the kids. (I'm waiting for the prices to go down, but they never do!) It would make me feel less guilty about letting them spend time playing video games. Some friends of ours came over for dinner once and brought their Wii and I was sore for two days afterward. (I think it was the boxing that did me in.) It was great fun though.
Are you a gamer? Have any cool ones to recommend? My top three are: Destroy All Humans, Call of Duty and Oblivion. What are yours?
