I know, I know. This place is rundown and cobwebby. No one hangs out here much anymore.
Hell, I barely pass as a “gamer” anymore. But, as most of you know (if anyone is still out there, that is) I've been a bit preoccupied with my spawn-to-be. She's due to be unleashed upon this world in about 3-4 weeks. This might be the last warning you receive. Best get your emergency kits together just in case!
Well, ok, so I doubt her entrance will be cataclysmic. And hey, it's nice knowing it won't be coming out right around her projected birthday anymore. Maybe she'll be sleeping (mostly) through the night by the time it is released?
Sideshow is getting a glimpse of Cata right now, which is nice. (Recent beta invite) I almost thought he might hijack the blog to talk about his adventures with Lord of the Rings Online (free to play now, I hear), Civ V, and Cata beta. Then again, I think everyone is pretty beta'd out by now (at least in terms of info overload).
So even though I've been doing lots of other things the past several months… I can't help but wonder how much my gaming life has prepared me for what's to come.
I keep hearing how I'll hardly get any sleep and when I do, it'll be in short bursts.
I hear my life will change.
I hear I won't be able to function due to sleep deprivation.
Really every “warning” I receive revolves around sleep in some form or fashion.
I guess they don't know what it's like to play WoW into all hours of the night, try to get a few hours of sleep, and then go to work. I've been there. I've done that. Sure, it was usually only for a stretch of a few days or maybe a week at a time. But I have functioned on little sleep before. Surely I can do it again. Right?
Sideshow doesn't have quite as much experience with sleep deprivation, but we were never the early to bed type. Well, I wasn't until I got pregnant. He still really isn't. (Although I suspect it gets boring without me around… I'm so entertaining, after all!)
I was never a morning person until I got pregnant either. Now I actually consider sleeping until 8am sleeping in…. on the weekend.
Pfft, what? I used to sleep til noon – EASY – until I got preggers. Then again, I would be up til 1 or 2 in the morning – EASILY – playing WoW or Sims or something.
We'll have to see how it goes. But I think I'm prepared.
