Last night I got BUSTED by my kids!!!

So, last night the ladder set around midnight CET right. Well, I'm going strong with my HC Team Evil and all is well right? No, my oldest gets up atr about 4am to pee and comes into the living room to see what;s going on. Well, there sits Dad playing Diablo. "Dad, do you know what time it is?" "Yea...yea...I know...go back to bed". 6AM rolls around and my 4yr old comes out. "Dad, it's early...what are you doing onthe computer." "Yea..Yea...I know...go watch cartoons". So then I decide I better get my azz in bed before the 8month old wakes up and my wife catches me. So, off to bed I go. Then at 10AM, I wake up to see my wife with her arms crossed giving me that "Your in trouble" look. come to find out both my kids ratted me out!!! Those lil bastard...lol. Oh well, I had my all-nighter of fun.

At least you weren't sleeping with a prostitute.

"Daddy, who's Loretta and why were you wrestling with her?"

Unfortunately most wives, and bosses, won't be understanding of computer game all nighters. Especially on work nights (CURSE YOU BLIZZARD!!!).
Heck, I'm such a lightweight, I start to nod off if I play past 1AM anyway.
:sleep:

Usu and I used to get threats of dumpage by our girlfriends when we talked about D2 too much together in their company. I think they thought we were speaking a different language: "Oh man soj, hoto, zod, pvp, mf, dr, shako, titans, annihilus, etc..."

MMMmmm....

two strangers meet on a train....


LOL!


I suggest finding out if you can get your wife interested...


...Or probably the best thing you can do is take the 8 month old off her hands for the day and send her off to shop or spa or whatever. Or you can clean the house or something.

Good luck!

When I was in my early 20s, I made quite a bad impression on the GF of my best friend because I talked almost exclusively about programming. Later I switched to wrecking the nerves of my friend by constantly talking about Diablo. When he came back from holiday yesterday, the first topic was... you guessed it, the 1.11 patch and ladder reset. However, he once played Diablo as well, so I hope I can wet his mouth to make him start again.

Don't underestimate that ! My father played cards once a week with a few friends 40 years ago, so the wives made their own meeting at the same time. My father and his friends stopped with that long ago, but their wives still have the meeting, once per two weeks, on tuesday :)
