There...I said it.
Add another notch to my geek belt, I don’t care. Now while I am a gamer I am not a hardcore gamer. Although tell my wife that...she would disagree, she believes that I love my X-Box 360 more than her. Well...if I had to CHOOSE one, I guess I'd choose my wife. BUT I WOULDN'T BE HAPPY ABOUT IT.
Lately I have been hip-deep in the LEGO Trilogy, consisting of Indiana Jones, Star Wars and Batman. I used to play a lot of games that were more violent and scary, but I play them less often now because it is so hard to play those kinds of games while the kids are awake, but when the kids go to bed it's dark and then I get scared. I can be a huge pussy when it comes to my irrational fear of the imminent attack of zombies.
If you are a member of X-Box Live and ever want to beat the crap out of me (I suck) or to play a co-op game (I would prefer this), my gamertag is residentlilly2. Why the 2? Cause I screwed up and have a freebie silver membership as residentlilly and I didn’t feel like trying to talk to some guy in India for three hours to fix the issue and have that gamertag canceled. X-Box customer service is a fuggin' JOKE.

That's me, or a facsimile of me, rather. It's my avatar, something you customize to make look sort of like you. That's easy for me. Bald, chunky, glasses and goatee are VERY easy to simulate electronically. You know, they really need a way to get a better image on your X-Box account. The avatar does all kinds of cool things on X-Box Live, but you can't access that stuff on your computer. So sad.
EDIT: Since these are written out of sequence and maybe even several days or a week ago or so I should point out that I have no news regarding Bennett and probably will not for a while. We took him to the doctor and it was exactly what I thought. Doctor has no idea. And now? The tests begin. He is being scheduled for an EEG. If that reveals nothing it is a night spent in the hospital hooked up to some gizmo. GREAT. This is not going to be a fun ride for the boy, or for us.
It's taking its toll on my sleep and my dreams though, which means there is really no respite no matter what time of day it is. Joy.
