Don’t It Just Figure

See the time?

No… really… see what time it is?

Okay… so here’s the deal.

This is around the only time that I get the opportunity to jump on the PS3.

Nooooo…. i’m not exaggerating.

I live with three seriously extreme gamers. Well, four but normally the last one is holed up in his room 23.5 hours of the day and is basically a stealth ninja. Anyway.. thing is.. I can never get on the damn thing while any of them are around because they have this almost Torrette-like compulsion to tell me how to play the damn game.

I hate that.

Let me repeat… I HATE THAT!!!

So to avoid me getting frustrated.. and attitude-ye.. and bitchy.. and throwing the damn controller at the head of whichever one happens to be doing it at the time… I just let them at it and play when they’re all asleep.

Except for now…

The damn game I’ve been waiting a month for :: Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune :: finally came in and it fucking ROCKS. All the hype about Assassin’s Creed? Yea.. forget about that. UDF has just about everything. Highly recommend it.

Okay.. so the problem is that the game came in yesterday and Josh, my 9 year old gamer extraordinare :: seriously, this kid is a fucking savant when it comes to video games :: is already at level 18 and there’s only 22 so it’s going to go back soon.

I figured since I was up, I’d take the opportunity to  have alittle me time but NOOOOooooooooo…. the unit had froze up earlier so the kids just shut it off and were watching tv.

Now, I can’t turn the damn thing on.

Yes it’s plugged in

No there isn’t a blackout

Yes I’m more then competent on turning on a PS3

No it just isn’t fucking working

Yes the universe still likes to toy with me

… I guess it’s for the best anyway because for some reason, Josh keeps sleep walking down to the living room and crashing on the couch even though his dad’s sent him upstairs a few hundred times so far. And yknow… extreme gamer that he is, as soon as the blue light goes on his third eye will be wide awake and reaching for the controllers!!
