It’s almost here. It’s less than a week away. September 20th, 2011. I can’t wait and I am filled to the brim with excitement. That’s right, it’s my Mom’s 54th Birthday!!!
What? What do you mean that this isn’t what you were expecting? Well, you should know my family better then. Geez.
But, in all honesty, it is my mother’s birthday on September 20th and I am excited for it. I don’t think my mother will be pleased that I posted her age on the internet, however. I just bought her some flowers to be sent to her on her birthday, and the total came up to $42 and some change. For $30 flowers. That’s $12 in delivery and handling. Needless to say, that did not make me excited. Especially being a college student and all, but I know that it is well worth it. The prices are still ludicrous.
Subject change. Gears of War 3. This is why I first was going to make a post, since I keep delaying homework thinking about GOW 3 and thinking about playing some GOW 2 in anticipation of GOW 3. Gears of War 3 comes out on September 20th and I am excite. No, don’t worry, I’m still going to remember it is my mother’s birthday and I am certainly going to call her and wish her a Merry Christm… Happy Birthday, but I don’t know if I will be functional enough to do my homework for that day. I have pre-ordered the Limited Edition of GOW 3 and am having Amazon deliver it to my college so I can play it on launch day. I effectively ruined the next two weeks of my sophomore year of college with this decision.
Nonetheless, it is going to blow my brain out of the cavity in my head. I love GOW 2 and I was a beta player of GOW 3 in the spring, who even bought Bulletstorm just so I could have an extra week with the beta. I am dedicated. I thought I was excited for Call of Duty: Black Ops when I pre-ordered it my freshman year, but it is nothing like this. I play with 3 (sometimes 4, if Cole isn’t obsessively playing NBA 2K11) good friends of mine when I do play GOW, which makes it even better. No matter what happens in the game it is easy to have a good time while playing with these guys. Except when they fight and bicker. Or when I “am eating pizza” or not starting the match IMMEDIATELY, because then they get mad at me. Did I tell you I like pizza?
Sorry for any inside jokes that may have occurred in the end of that last paragraph. Anyway, I am literally putting off Norwegian homework as I write this because I was too obsessed with thinking about this game to do some stupid “Stein på stein” stuff for a class. Norsk er vanskelig, og jeg blir stresset når jeg tenker på det. I prefer Anatomy and Physiology. And English.
Hope you have a stress-free evening/day/morning/whenever-you-might-read-this. I wrote it in the evening while doing homework, however, and I think it is best understood under such circumstances.
