Woody & Ted: "Contagion: The Game"
Posted: Thursday November 12th, 2009 by

Hey guys! Sorry about the grumpy comic. Here's the deal.

This past weekend we had an early birthday party for theKid. He turns 2 today. Freakin' two, ALREADY! Anyway, we had this party. So there were going to be a ton of two year olds running around. Well, a parent paying attention to situation would leave her sick kid at home. Nope. Didn't happen. We had two of them. So, theKid got the flu for his birthday. Awesome.

Now his school has a policy that a sick kid can't come back until 24 hours after his fever has broken. No problem, I get it. (Wish those two parents had been as considerate with out birthday party.) The issue is, Taks can't get away from work right now. So that means I'm taking care of him all day long. Sick kid. No car while Taks is at work (30 minutes away)? **shivers** Stresses me out something fierce.

Well watching theKid all day means not being able to actually work during the day. That leaves needing to do the same amount of work at night. It's uhh... not going well. I'm exhausted. Apparently I can function on 4 hours of sleep but not on 3. **crosses eyes** So couple tired, with stress, with taking care of a sick kid during the day. And now my nose is runny. Which means there's a couple of parents I would like to throw rocks at. Not because of my nose. I can handle it. No, my kid not being able to sleep because he's coughing makes me angsty.

So, Mr. GrumpyWoodyPants, what does this have to do with gaming? **points at the unopened CE Dragon Age box sitting on his desk** At this rate I might get to play it sometimes after the beginning of next year.

Now some brutal honesty...
The ONLY reason I did this comic rather than one about Funcom's desperate bid to get players to come back to Age of Conan is because I didn't want to be up until 3:30 am again knowing I'd need to get up at 6:30 am this morning. Sorry about that! 1:30 am was plenty late enough I think.

Thanks for bearing with me. Sorry again about the grumpy comic.
