Ugh Drea, that sucks! He needs a total intervention. Isn't it so gay when all of these guys get together & play games - I like to call that a circle jerk.

No computers this weekend!!

And then the best part is when he tells me to stop nagging him and it will get done. Yeah, a whole freaking day later it gets done! If I don't nag him, it doesn't get done and I end up having to do it. BangHead.gif

Damn the people who made it possible to play video games at home.
Mike always says he'll play a "quick game". It is NEVER a quick game. And when I ask him how much longer, it's always "5 more minutes". Yeah, the dog can't wait another 3 hours to pee, so I'll do it. Soooo frustratingBangHead.gif

my DH doesn't play video games, but he watches SO MUCH TV! I'm not really a tv person, it wouldn't bother me not to have cable because I do other stuff, but he watches every damn sport he can find and would never miss a red sox or pats game, its so damn annoying! But I can't complain too much because when he watches TV I'm on BDW.

I hate video games. My ex used to play Everquest 24/7 and it got to the point where he just wouldn't leave the house. He sat in the computer room, smoking pot and playing that damn game all day & night.

 

With him, there wasn't a way to fix it. On the rare occasion when I could pry the keyboard from his fingers to go out, he was so moody and going thru "withdrawals", that I relented and started going out on my own, with my own friends.

 

Here's a little passive aggressive "fun" for you tho:

 

Go to his computer when he's in the bathroom. Press these keys simultaneously: Control, Alt, and the down arrow key. This will shift his PC screen upside down. Good luck to him on figuring that one out!!! :)

lolololol....good one Maria, but if I did that he would probably figure it out (remember Erik is a computer guy) or maybe he wouldn't... and he also plays this on his Mac

definitely wouldn't work on a Mac.... but even my programmer/IT friends didn't know about this trick. It's one of those things that isn't mentioned in documentation and you have to really dig to find how to undo it. I stumbled across it when I hit the wrong sequence of keys at home. Took me awhile I remember what I pressed to undo it. :) the person who sits across from me at work is one of those 'gossipy' types whose always whispering.... when she really drives me batty, I'll do this when she heads out for lunch. and then I just sit there chuckling and when she leaves to grab the IT guy to fix it, I'll undo it while she's gone. :)

That is awesome!!! I have to try it. To reverse it do you just do the same thing, but press the up arrow key?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
