An Addict without his Addiction

Why have I not updated this week? I am in mourning right now….mourning over my Playstation 3 that is ill right now and about to be sent off to the Sony doctor. Sounds petty I know, but it is more than my gaming system- it is my entertainment center; my downstairs internet access point; my Blu-Ray player; and source for communication with about half my friends.

They say it is going to take ten to fourteen business days for me to get it back once they receive it and it is going to take about ten to fourteen business days for me to get the box for me to send it to them, so I am looking at about twenty-eight business days of no Playstations 3. Remember, a business day does not include weekends and holidays, so we are really looking at around 33 days I am about to be in Siberia. I live in Florida and have no clothing suitable for Siberia. This sucks.

I went to the Playstation forums to try and see if there was anything I could do on my own to fix the problem, but was met with a round of "there is no problem with the Playstation" and "you are an Xbox fanboy trying to cause problems" and "go lie somewhere else." I am 36 years old and really have no interest in the Sony/ Microsoft game console war. I just want my system to work. Thank G-d the actual Sony people were more helpful than the forum fan boys.

I know, I know…if this is the worst thing to happen, be happy and I know it is no big deal in the grand scheme of things, but it is those minor speed bumps on the road of life that cause the annoyances. We tend to avoid those potholes, but these speed bumps just sneak up on you to throw you off your game. There should be an update, a real update tomorrow.

Awww, poor sick little Playstation. Geez, after 33 days, I guess it will feel like you're in Siberia. Withdrawal will be bad, but you can get through it and he'll be back home before you know it.:)

Well now if you hadn't played it 24/7 for the last 10 months it might still be working ;)
