360 Degrees of Separation

The night of the 360's launch was least in terms of the weather. It was pouring so hard that I saw the Ark go by at one point and even Noah couldn't find a 360 anywhere. I was one of the lucky ones, having pre-ordered my 360 at a store where I was known by the employees, so it was a night of hanging out with other gamers and enjoying the excitement of my very first midnight console launch. I bought two games that night: Kameo and Perfect Dark Zero (oh how far we have come). I couldn't join Live that night (due to router issues which was fine since that paved the way for me to meet my husband, RuFfNeCk) but once I hit Xbox Live I was hooked and have been loving my 360 and the Xbox community ever since.

Once we got married, RuFfNeCk was worried that I wouldn't play games anymore (I think he equated it with the whole "no sex after marriage" scenario and I tend to believe he'd be much more upset about the "no games after marriage" than the other...) Then when I got pregnant, he got even more worried because with children come more things to get done and I have to admit that games have been definitely relegated to the "when I get to it" section of my life since ICandee Jr was born a month ago. Even the lure of Fable II (though hard to resist) was no match for my beautiful newborn daughter. Until she finally decided to sleep that is and then it was on! I even tricked RuFfNeCk into taking her a couple times so I could get some gaming was good....

Until, one sad day, I learned my 360's true feelings for the change in my life status. No longer could my 360 stand being pushed aside for more could he take the insult of being passed by without almost 3 years to the day, I found this in my living room:

That's right my friends, my day one launch system has left this world for another. I am heartbroken and gameless...(well, I mean I still have the PS3, Wii and DS to play but whatever it still stings...) I feel like the Bumpus' dogs just ran in and tore my Christmas turkey to pieces...

I have never felt so alone...crap now the baby's crying. You better be glad I have a new baby to occupy my time right now Microsoft! I, your biggest supporter! I, your biggest defender! How could you do this to me?! ME?! Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!
