Make Love Not Warcraft.

Wouldn't that be nice.  It turns out that there is a feature in World of Warcraft, where after you defeat an enemy,  you hug it; thereby, earning a "Make Love Not Warcraft" point or upgrade.

I bring this up, because I find it funny and ironic.  Funny(in a sick way) because you "love" your enemy, only after virtually killing it in a virtual battle; ironic because those who play W.o.W. aren't exactly having personal contact of any kind, are they? In other words, perhaps these people should be making love and not playing Warcraft. Maybe I'm just angry because I've been upstaged by a flippin' game.

Just the other night, I was attempting to ask my husband something. With my short term memory loss, I can't remember what it was.  The point is, his response was, "make love...not Warcraft," instead of answering my question. No wonder I forgot what it was.

In the meantime, I am trying to spend less time on Facebook,  so I can focus on this blog, and enjoying the company of those around me. There is no substitute for real face-to-face interaction.

I hear ya! I find the whole "game as substitute for real interaction" weird, but then, I'm not a guy! It is a rather ironic option all things considered. I'm laughing....
My spousal unit has gotten a facebook page now as one of his running buddies said, "get one, it will be fun!" Now he is all obsessed with it. I think it's easy to get lost in all this stuff. But then again, I do the same thing w/political articles and different things to read on the internet, so there you go!
