Thus came the day... when EVERYTHING CHANGED

Postby Golem on Mon Aug 16, 2010 1:09 pm

Friends, dummies, ragers, lend me your laptops.

The day when EVERYTHING CHANGED will arrive in one week and four days. I think most of you have got the gist by now but on August 27th I become a married man.

From this point, it means I shall no longer be online gaming as the other half requires I sell the PC so we can afford some new sofas and a recarpeting. And maybe a pet tiger, I've always wanted one of those (a meager concession to make up for my loss). *

Okay, that entire paragraph was an outright lie. I won't be online very much though in the coming weeks as I a) tick the final few boxes as the day draws nearer, b) actually get myself hitched and c) fly around the country on a sprint of madness and luxury for the 10 days that follow. I may not be able to get in on L4D2 action this Sunday (22nd) as I'll have my youngest sister and my oldest nephew of 4 years old with me and I'm not all that comfortable playing a game which tears hundreds of diseased humans into fleshy and skeletal pieces in front of them for two hours. ;) But if my other half has em at her house that evening then it is possible!

I'm back September 6th/7th but we'll be werry werry busy moving things about from her place to mine, and doing a MEGA clear out and setup at home. I'll let you know when things settle a bit and when I'm back in action. :)

Jedi mind control: watch me plant thoughts in your head by the simplest of things...

"action", eh. is that what they call it?

Now the Jedi part:
*waves hand* This isn't the action you're looking for.

Actually I've kept this tame. For example, people were so excited about the idea of me wearing my Darth Vader suit for the ceremony, but this idea does not appeal to me at all - apart from ensuring I'd be extremely uncomfortable, it wouldn't really give the event the reverence it deserves! The reception is a different story, but you're kinda limited in scope. I really wanted to get Space Invaders ice cubes used but the hotel have their own ice machines and, to be fair, a small tray isn't gonna cut it when they're trying to serve 120 people!

But the background music... well, there's scope there. ;)

I am not going to lie to you guys, but...

When I saw the first two lines
From this point, it means I shall no longer be online gaming as the other half requires I sell the PC so we can afford some new sofas and a recarpeting. And maybe a pet tiger, I've always wanted one of those (a meager concession to make up for my loss).
.. My heart actually stopped beating :(

Man...

Congrats to you TheGolem! Lol!

Have a great day my friend, and maybe will see you soon.

I like the idea of the portal theme tune as a first dance.....

Your rigs getting a bit old now, dont think it would go a long way to getting you a new carpet and sofas etc.

And the day golem gives up gaming the world will end.....
