Counter Struck

Mr K-E likes his online gaming; his latest thing is Counter Strike Source. It's some kind of team commando shoot-em-up game...or something. He plays in his "den" with the lights dimmed and his giant headphones on. It's all about capturing enemy territory...or something. Can you tell that I'm not much of a computer game buff myself? :)

Anyway, this is all well and good but he does tend to lose track of time when he is playing. Which means lots of creeping into bed at 4:30 am on a school night. OK if you are a student who doesn't have to get up in the morning; not so great if you have to put in a hard day's work. There's only so much caffeine you can ingest before you get the shakes.

So tonight I have to get him to bed at eleven (his instructions). I have to ignore any pleading or "it's OK, I'll only stay on for another half an hour". This is tough love, honey.

Not all students wake up late every morning, I'm very hardworking :p

and yes counter strike is evil. not so great when i have 9-6pm, which is pretty much everyday (except on weekends of course). and a great way to procrastinate too.

Yeah, a great way to waste time - a bit like blogging in fact :)
