Video Games Fridays!

Friday night - I've got a kickass video game, some delicious brussels sprouts (shut up, they're amazing) and a mojito. This makes me ridiculously content with the world. I had a dream last night where my ex (Which one,  irrelevant, but she's probably reading this...) was pregnant, and we decided to raise the sproggin together. I was very excited to meet my new kidlet. She decided, however, on the day she was due, to go see a parade. Why? I dunno, she's just...odd like that. And of course I got lost, and so the dream was about me finding my way back to where I needed to be to meet my new son/daughter.

But something tells me that, should such a thing ever come to pass... peaceful Friday  nights with video games are pretty much a thing of the past. I'll enjoy it while it lasts.

P.S. Sugar-free apple-pie ala-mode puddin'. Science has given us this glory. Life is good.

Not really. I mean, not necessarily. We played Parchesi tonight and would have played tennis on the Wii had Elizabeth not gotten herself *grounded* (soooo grounded!). And, anyway, you still get to enjoy adult content after the kids go to bed.

It's a nice way to live, is all I'm sayin'. And someday you are going to be such a great dad.

Oh- And a quick question: Which game system can be played on the Wii?

Because, well, Wii games are frighteningly expensive and we are getting tired of tennis and skee ball. I think we could manage some used games, though. (And the guy I asked at Gamestop was surprisingly unhelpful.)

I remember spending my due date at the Getty Museum. A woman came up to me to ask when the big day is and literally stepped back when I told her it could start happening any minute now.
Peaceful Friday nights are possible, eventually. The key word is 'eventually'. Family life is an inverted bell curve: you start out very happy, then you have kids and the happiness level plummets, simply because paretning is a very demanding, around-the-clock job.But kids grow, and so does your satisfaction with life.
So enjoy your single life while you can, and good luck with knocking somebody up :)
