Monkey Views: Electricity Vs Me

So currently i have been disabled for electricity. The only way im able to use my laptop is by taking it to work with me. I dont look out of place at all, sat there in a building site with a laptop. It honestly makes me question my manhood, while im scooping some gaming news, the 5 men next to me are reading Playboy while spitting on the floor, doing weights and smoking.

But anyway thats not the point of this preety useless blog. I just wanted to talk about how shocking (electric pun no.1) my daily routine has become with the absence of elecricity. Dont ask me why, but im sure working from 5 in the morning till 6 at night, then going home and watching your family play board games from a distance (me and board games dont go) has driven me slightly insane.

Speaking of which, the last 4 days i have had to wake up at stupid o'clock, and attempt to get prepaid for work in the pitch black. So many injuries. I actually fell down the stairs lastnight, and it hurt way more than i remember. But this blog post isnt about personal injuries or the accidental death of my 2 month old kitten, its about what the evil electricians have done to my gaming capabilities. Which is basically crippled them. The only game i have played in the past four days is solataire, and i am terrible at it. Its almost as if i have been unplugged from the gaming world (electric pun no.2). It depresses me evn more that (i think) the new norderlands dlc is out in England today, yet i am unable to persue my love for the game.

Im disconnected from all my online chums and pals, i have had to cram all the destructoid goodness from the last few days in a one hour dinner break. When i am back and fully functioning, i have a idea for a post which has been praying on my mind for a while. But it needs some serious graft put into it. Until then, chow!!!!

About Monkey Newsone of us since 10:20 AM on 10.19.2009

I enjoy games. Lots of them actually. I enjoy festivals. Been to a fair few. Currently studying Animal Management, to go onto Animal Behaviour if any of you give a damn.

My first major experience with games was completing Sonic 2 at the age of 5, much to my dads amazement. Its strange, I don't remember his exact reaction, but I do recall him not letting me play any more games until he completed them first. My all time favourite game is Banjo & Kazooie. God damn I love that bear & bird.

Games I love:
Dino Crisis 1/2
B & K
Command & Conquer
Golden Axe
Crash Bandicoot: Warped
Resident Evil 2/4
Sonic 2
Altered Beast (despite never getting past the third level)
Radical Rex
Pokemon Blue/Gold/Ruby
Super Mario Sunshine/64
Diddy Kong Racing

N64 is my favourite console of all time.

Oh look, It's me!

Here is Lynx. Lazy bastard.
