Gears of War?

What is it with boys and video games?

I just don't get it. I am dating a successful, intelligent, driven, kind, respectful man. Who likes videogames.

We spent a wonderful day with my parents and were later joined by my little bro and his gf for a nice dinner by the Falls and then drove around to see the Festival of Lights in Canada. Awesome day.

But, the talk of the day was Ry's purchase of the XBOX360. He already has a perfectly fine Playstation 2. But this is "the next generation of video games". OK, whatever.

Luckily, he thinks I am the super coolest girlfriend, because I "allowed" him to buy the video game. With his own, hard-earned money. And, he is now spending the evening bonding with my little bro over some stupid videogames.

And he can never complain when I buy yarn or shoes or .... whatever other senseless thing I can think of to buy ....

Dude, tell him he has got to get the Lego Star Wars II for the Xbox.

I am totally getting that one for my old school gamecube. Plus more memory cards and another controller.

My post-Thanksgiving shopping is all about videogames and yarn.
