The Other Man Who Is Ruining My Marriage

I am blogging at 4:00am. That means I am not in bed with my husband. As happens with so many marriages, another man has come between us.

Sid Meier.

Yes. I have been playing Civilization III** since 10:00. I had no idea what time it was. I looked at the clock thinking "Man, it's late. I bet it's 1:30 already. Well, baby. No, it ain't. It's 3:45. THREE FRIGGING FORTY FIVE. These are vampire hours.

What's worse is that I only want to sleep so that my gameplay is fresher tomorrow. Make that 'later today.'

**I'm on a Mac. I won't get IV for another 6 months--after all you nice PC people have beta tested it for me..

Civilization III? Ooo. I love that game, but here in the land of hippie liberals, we stay up all night playing Deirdre on Alpha Centauri.

You are custom tailored to be an EQ, EQII or World of Warcraft addict.

I want to get the new Age of Empires and Civ IV, but we spend too much money on books and DVDs.

ROFL - how lucky to have the flexibility that insomnia provides! :-D

I will have you know, Castor, (or are you Pollux?) that I am only playing Civ III to give me a break from my near-constant Alpha Centauri/Alien Crossfire Gameplay. I always play Dierdre, but I rename her alphabetically to track my games. My last game was Thalia--the fifth time I've hit "T". I used to think that was sad...but now I've made my peace with it.

I know. That's why I've avoided them all like the plague. I can literally see myself having to be one of the EverCrack kids in therapy.

I had Civ II (I think it was) for the Playstation. It was fun- actually, one of the people that played one of the advisors was a guy I know. I wanted to get Civ III when it came out, since I liked the PS version so much, but at the time I had a computer that couldn't run it. My fear about getting computer games is, then I'd NEVER get off the computer, and that might be bad. ;)

Avoid WoW! I keep thinking that I'm done playing, but it's been over a year now and though I've stopped cranking out level 60s, I'm still on from time to time.

I'm certain to get Civ IV for Christmas from The Boyfriend™

Can't wait. The only problem I had with Civ III was, as a turn-based game, once you got to the later stages the turns seemed to take FOREVER.
