In Conclusion

Here's the thing about LAN parties... They're really cool because if you get enough friends together, usually 4-8 people altogether, you can all play the same game in the same room at the same time. No stupid headset chatter... you can plan attacks easier... heckle your friends... it's a good time.

The LAN games that I prefer to play include Ages of Empires, and Worms World Party. 2 very awesome games... old ones, mind you, but excellent nonetheless! I prefer playing computer games as opposed to x-box or play station games.

The LAN party I was at was all about the X-Box 360 games. Super lame and boring. I don't play video games. I don't own any gaming consoles.

And just so everyone is clear... I was at a LAN party from 1pm until 7pm. That's 6 hours of being in a cramped one bedroom apartment with 7 other people. The BF and I actually arrived late to the party. It had started at 10:30 am.

We left briefly just after 7 to go back to the house we were staying at. The BF tried to seduce me, but failed. Not because I rejected him, but because we were in his friends' house and he felt awkward. I didn't feel awkward. I'll fuck anywhere. The bed was kind of squeaky though.

The BF and I had a fight that night about how I never wanted to go back there again. He felt as though I was personally attacking him and shrugging off his "most important friendships." I told him that his friends are very nice people, but I have nothing in common with them.

They really are very nice. They just also happen to be really into things that I'm not into and think are boring. I told him that if we had never moved away, hanging out with his friends would have been a deal breaker because I would never want to hang out with them, we'd fight about it, and eventually break up. But because we did move away, it's not a deal breaker, and if he wants to drive out there to go visit them by himself, by all means, he can go do it! I'm just not coming because there is NO POINT!!!

The BF was very offended. He asked if I was going to disregard the new friends he's made in the city we live in now. I said no. I actually like those people. I like them because they are social; they talk about music that I listen to, politics, books, movies, and just other random and weird things of interest to me. They don't spend all day in front of the damn television set playing first person shooter games for 8 straight hours! THEY HAVE A LIFE!

The BF was quiet for a moment. Then he said, well, I guess you're right.

Thank you. I know. I'm always right. Obviously.

On Sunday, we went skating before we left to go back home, just the two of us. It was enjoyable and I think I'd like to go skating more often.
