My Mass Effect Boner Went Flaccid

   0
I am one of the people that has had a hard on for Mass Effect since E3 2006 and this last week has been torturous (partially due to CoD4 on Veteran). Anyway, I wanted nothing more than to leave work yesterday, pick up my pre-ordered copy of ME and start playing. Here's what happened:

I get a call at work from my lone surviving Grandparent on his way to Tulsa with his new girlfriend (they're both 80+). They're going to stop in St. Louis for the night and need to know if I can set them up with a hotel room and then go out for dinner since we won't be seeing one another this Thanksgiving. So if figure I can wait a few more hours until after dinner to play ME. I mean seriously, they're both over 80, how late could they possibly stay out? So the whole dinner shenanigans lasts from 6:00, when i pick up my fiancee, to 9:30, when i finally arrive home.

I'm finally ready to play when I'm welcomed home by my roommate's mother (she's awesome). Anyway, I had apparently forgotten that she was coming in town one night early for the Thanksgiving my roommate's family is spending at our place. This doesn't really bother me as she's staying in a hotel for the holiday and usually heads to bed around 10 or so. So when I see my roommate start turning off the lights, and not having heard his mother left, i ask casually "Oh, hey, what hotel is your mom staying at?". To my eternal agony the answer was "Oh, she said she just wants to sleep on the couch until my dad arrives tomorrow.".

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As you may have guessed this means the 360 is going to be idle right next to her all night. The worst part though is that I'm flying to Houston after work today until Sunday night and won't be home until 11pm. Not only that but my fiancee likes to spend the night together after a trip with family b/c of the lack of...well, "contact" during the trip. So that means I'll be unable to play ME until Monday or possibly even Tuesday night! Oh the humanity!

If the Packer's lose my entire thanksgiving will be ruined. (proof)

This is about the time i realize how great my life is when the only thing i have to worry about is when I'll get to play ME. I mean seriously, this is my biggest problem.
