A quiet year all around, as far as Long Tail Gamer goes, yes?
Yup. Not much to blog about in a world of nothing. Ergo, chirp chirp. It happens to every blog eventually. Sometimes often.
But then things turn around.
Yeah. Almost a year to the day, the March Purges are slowly reversing. The light of dawn cracks over the horizon of my gaming rig. Light from a distant star now graces upon the land.
It’s not like I have more spare time. If anything, I have less. I’m preppinga new business venture with Linda, for one thing. For another thing, we’re getting married. And I totally need new socks. There’s, like, a jillion things to do.
But, on a whim and having a few hours to kill, I installed Stronghold last weekend.
Next thing I knew, the Sun was going down, I’d been in my jammies all day, and the cats were starving — TO DEATH, by their reckoning. So sad, the way their little pink tongues flopped from their gaping mouths, futily twitching to lick the imagined last whiffs of Science Diet from their far-too-clean bowls.
My castle was doing great, though. Radiers, beware!
If the new biz does well, I’ll be better off financially than I ever have been in my life. That won’t be much of a stretch, honestly. But, you know how it is, you get in those “flights of fancy” sort of mood, imagining yourself dolphin-leaping amid piles of shiny coins, fantasizing what you’d do with your cut…
First thing I thought of: upgrade my video card. Honestly.
So: gaming. I can’t promise anything, and it won’t be like the old days, but baby, you know I care. I might not have time for you like I once did, but I’ll make time for you like I never have.
