An empty house and Killzone; what a combination

Here it is. Oh-dark-thirty and I'm still awake. I hate insomnia.

Let's see, is there anything on my mind? No, not really. I mean there's the same old crap I always whine about, but nothing special. So let's think of something to babble about.

<tick> <tock>
<tock> <tick>

Nope. Nothing is happening. Just feeling much pain, a little tired and (as usual for late nights) lonely. It's extra bad now because I'm actually alone in the house. I will get my son back tomorrow evening and my mom is coming back on Thursday but with my brothers in Las Vegas for a week.

Speaking about Las Vegas makes me think of CSI now. It used to make me think about Bugsy Segal and the Mob building all the casinos but now it's all about Gil Grissom. I'm the only one in the family who hasn't been to Las Vegas. I think. I can't remember if Mum has ever been.

The other day I was superfluously thinking about what it would be like to have a girlfriend who was 18 or 20 or something like that. It wouldn't be robbing the cradle, really, because you're legal at that age. But I couldn't ever actually do it. Having an age gap of 25 or so years isn't so much when you're 80 and she's 55 but 43 and 18 is, well, to close to child molestation for me. 18 is still just a baby. Plus I'm pretty positive no 18 year old girl is going to want to be saddled with a crippled old man. Not to mention (oops, I mentioned it) that there's no way I could "satisfy" a woman that young. I'd have a heart attack or stroke if I even tried. No, all in all, the youngest I could see myself going is 30. Maybe 28 if the girl is right.

I'm stuck on Killzone* again. I don't know why this game hates me. I've already played the Campaign a bunch of times and got to blow away all the Helgast and even General Adams. But there's the part where the team gets to the beach and is just about to start heading for the docks. After the last battle at the beach, the frelling game won't let me continue. It just sits there doing nothing. I run around and make sure all the Helgast are dead and that everything is done to accomplish this mission but I get nothing. Now, when my son plays this section of the game he gets right onto the docks with no trouble. I always have to have him play this one section for me in order to advance. Yes, this is totally weird and there's probably something in the game logic which I'm not doing right in order to continue. But I'll be damned if I know what it is.

And speaking of Killzone, the word is that Killzone 2 will only be released for the PS3. This is insane. The PS3 is predicted to cost $600 and the only way to make full use of it is to have an HDTV. There's no way I will ever be able to get a PS3 if this is true. Hell, I couldn't actually afford the PS2. We got it as a Christmas present from my brothers (they gave us a DVD player the year before). We wouldn't have any games if it weren't for Game Crazy. They sell used games and you can also trade in games you don't want for different/new ones. Anyway, with the way things are looking I might just find a used Nintendo GameCube, they run in the neighborhood of $70, and get a bunch of "old" Nintendo games. That sounds like a good idea to me, really. If only I could come up with the $70.

Well, that's enough for tonight. I really should try and get some sleep.

After a quick snack.
