Halo 3 came out Tuesday, as you might know if you are the kind of person who follows video game news.
Personally, I'm not exactly sure how it is that my soul mate likes video games. Or, more specifically, how it is that I could come to be married to someone who would preorder a video game.
I'm not a video game player, and I never have been. We didn't even have a Nintendo when I was growing up, and although I can remember pleading for one a few times throughout my childhood, for the most part we didn't feel deprived. I spent most of my free time with my nose in a book, anyway.
Michael, on the other hand, is very much a fan of video games. And as a result, our house has been filled with the sounds of Halo 3 the last couple evenings.
On the bright side, although I don't much care for the sound (Michael likes it movie theater-loud), this has given me time to do things that I want or need to get done. For instance, I can put in some extra work hours without feeling guilty for ignoring Michael, or go up to the stables to visit Panama. This is actually a good thing, because the last couple of weeks I have found myself working at the speed of molasses, and the daily visits to the stables (which I will not give up) don't help at all.
