Today is a much better day.
Sure, my back is making it’s presence known (in a fairly big way), but I could really care less. Today is the day that my new game, Battlefield 2142 hits the store shelves. I pre-ordered 4 copies (one for me, one for each of my kids, and one for the extra kid who almost lives at my house). Last night, I got a call from the store I ordered it from to confirm that the game would be in stock today.
I pulled the demo down last week and both my sons and I have been playing it as a team. That’s good father-son time, and it is incredibly fun! Sure, we don’t go fishing or camping… but we do go and whoop some serious ass online, and that’s way more fun (and less stinky and dirty).
For those who care, I have my appointment for the nerve induction test next tuesday. For those who don’t know what a nerve induction test is, I shall explain:
They place probes (read: long damn needles) into my back and lower leg such that they come in contact with the sciatic nerve. Then they apply electricity to one end. The test is to see how long it takes for the electrical charge to go from one end to the other. Apparently, this is used as a form of torture in some countries (it hurts like all hell, but doesn’t do actual damage if the charge is low enough).
I’ve been promised that my chance to rule the world with an iron fist is coming. Honest! Once again, I’ll let you know what’s up with that when I can.
