day 1

Q: What the fuck is this?

A: A blog documenting the long term effects of a 9 day Skyrim binge. It’s kind of like a journal, only not as gay. Edit: Sorry, I meant homosexual, I know how offensive it is to use “gay” this way. Edit 2: Apparently homosexual isn’t any better. I now mean “EMO”.

Q: What the fuck is Skyrim?

A: The best video game ever made. EVER MADE. Also, it’s the next installment of the Elder Scrolls series by Bethesda. They also made Fallout 3, which was alright… I suppose. Certainly not blog worthy.

Q: Why are you doing this?

A: So I can remember these precious times, FOREVER… or at least until I’m too lazy to re-register the domain. Also, I have 160 hours of PTO (Paid Time Off) saved up… and I cannot think of a more perfect way to spend my vacation than being lazy and stoned off of video-game pr0nz.

Q: What do you plan to accomplish?

A: I hope to obtain 154 hours of play time in 9 days. Which, out of a total of 216, may seem impossible, but I have chosen to use a custom sleep schedule for this event, observe:

20 hours on, 8 hours off. 6 hours for sleep, 1 hour for updating this here blog, and another 1 hour for eating, drinking, and, if my bowels so choose, pooping. Also, I may want to stand up every once in awhile to not be like that kid in China who WoW’d himself to death. This means that I’ll have 7.71 “custom” days. 7.71 * 20 (hours of playtime) comes to approximately 154 hours. Yeah, I’m fuckin’ ready. EDIT: I most certainly will have to do something for Thanksgiving. I despise turkey, yams, cranberries, and people. I have alloted 6 hours for this crap-fest. This means that I’ll begin my journey Friday night, and quit slightly early on Sunday. Still 154 hours. DO NOT LOSE FAITH!

Q: Have you ever attempted this sort of thing before?

A: Well, I did put over 300 hours into Oblivion. I accomplished EVERYTHING in that game. Closed all gates. All quests in an order that was non-mutually exclusive. (Played twice, for the alternate endings). Explored all caves (on PC even). Installed all the DLC worth while. And this doesn’t count the two play-through sessions on Shivering Isles.

Q: How old are you?

A: 26. I need to get this out before I’m too old to abuse my body with sleep deprivation.
