Skyrim Widow

Tim's building better armor in Skyrim, while using his new wireless X41's.  And I've become a gamer widow.
 
Except for when Warrior Poopyhead calls from the couch, asking for pizza, unable to pause because he's in another epic battle.

Back when we first started dating he told me that his Xbox didn't have a pause button, and I believed him.

Then not long after I saw him pause the game. 

And that's when I developed the skill of pointing.  That's where I point at his warrior in game and say, "I think it's time for your character to die."  And true story, he ALWAYS dies.

Who's the big bad warrior now?

  1. If the finger of death ever fails you, you could also resort to siege tactics -- don't bring the pizza when he calls for it, and he'll put down the game when he gets hungry. This always works for Mrs. Bard anyway... :)

  3. I swear there is crack laced in every copy of Skyrim. I've wasted a LOT of hours playing it.

  4. Bard: Tim says from the couch, "That's very effective tactic."

    Trey: So many games, so little time.

    Dan: Did you try it with the Ear Force X41's? I got them for Christmas for him, but I'm also looking forward to watching NetFlix with them.

  5. I'm not a gamer, but my MOM and my niece both got it for Christmas. :D My condolences, Skyrim Widow. Luckily you have the secret weapon, that Finger of Death.

  8. Carol: Did they get the computer or console game? Tim's an Xbox guy. And yes, the Finger of Death comes in handy.

    Alex: Which do you play? PC or console? Tim's a 360 guy. Upgraded headphones and all.

    James: I'm thinking I should have named the blog post Finger of Death.

  10. My brother recently got that game and I haven't seen much of him since. Having played Oblivion, Skyrim's predecessor, I can understand. That's why I don't have any games like that installed on my computer. I'd never get any writing done.

  14. That's a powerful finger, and kind of scary.

  16. I've somehow managed to avoid getting into videogames... I suspect I'm all the better adjusted for it.

  17. Let us know when he starts yelling dragon shouts at people. But if he starts in on it with you, give him an arrow to the knee.

  18. William: Games are fun. Maybe one day you'll give it a go and love it, maybe not. But they can be super duper fun.

    Veg: I've got the Finger of Death, so I'm good to go.
