RTW: Crazy Love

Hey everyone! I'm back! Or at least I am for the span of this post. You see, I've been expectedly busy with writing my thesis and with other final semester type things related to being a senior, and I honestly haven't had time to blog. Sad, I know. I wish it wasn't so.

But since it is, I felt it was high time I came back for an RTW and explained my seemingly utter departure from the blogging world. So there y'all have it. I explained myself.

Now for the fun stuff!

Welcome to our 169th Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link - or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.

This Week's Topic: What's the craziest thing you've done for love, or what's your favorite book/movie moment of someone doing crazy things for love?

It really depends on how you define crazy. Are we talking actual insane actions, like Jack freezing to death in the water even though there was room on that piece of wreckage? Or are we talking momentary flashes of insanity that lead us to sing outside the house of the one we love at three o'clock in the morning (likely while also intoxicated)?

Obviously I've never had a truly insane moment because I'm still alive, and I'm not sure I ever will. And after watching the Carnival cruise ship flounder around in Mobile Bay last week and hearing about all the unsanitary things those poor people had to endure, I don't think I'll be in Jack's position any time soon, i.e. no boats for this girl.

However, I feel like I must be slightly crazy when it comes to the Boyfriend. I'm not sure how many of you know that I love Skyrim, but I do. I love it. I also happen to love Boyfriend. But when you put Boyfriend and Skyrim together, that's when my crazy comes out.

I can't stand to watch him play. It's excruciating. He doesn't play right. And by right, I suppose I mean the way I play. (Which is RIGHT.)

Skyrim Valentine's CardsI have to restrain myself from screaming. Sometimes I forget and try to tell him what to do, and then he does the complete opposite because he knows it drives me crazy.

If you're wondering where the crazy love part comes in, don't worry, I'm getting there.

He loves to play Skyrim even though he's not any good.

And because I'm such an amazing girlfriend, I let him play Skyrim more than I do. It's torture. But I endure it.

I have a video that shows this strange dynamic, but I'm not sure if I should post it. I want to, because it's funny. But he isn't used to being on the Internet. Oh well. I know! I'll transcribe it! I'm brilliant.

Video of Boyfriend Being Terrible at Skyrim:

Scene: His house in Falkreath

BF: Wait a minute, if you plant one, you get more than one back, right?

Me: *heavy sigh*

BF: *laugh*

Me: You get however in the plant. It could be one, it could be more than one.

BF: *laugh* *funny face*

Me: Just plant something and find out.

BF: I did.

Me: Well, good. Yes, that's a stable.

BF: I want a horse in it.

Me: You have to buy a horse!

BF: I don't wanna buy 'em!

Me: Just--you've got a lot of gold! Just buy it!

BF: *dumb laugh* I don't have that much...

Me: You have enough.          (He has 16,000 gold at that point.)

BF: What about pigs and animals?

Me: You can buy a cow or some chickens from Lydia. Go do that.

BF: Chickens! I can't hear you! *laughs*

Me: Just, just buy some stuff from Lydia!

BF: Oooohh! Bench!!

Me: Here's an idea. Here's an idea.

BF: I'm sitting on a bench!

Me: Here's an idea: why don't you just get Lydia to decorate your whole house for you?

BF: Bench, bench!

Me: It would make our relationship so much easier.

BF: I was sitting on a bench...

Me: Oh my god...

Well, if that isn't crazy behavior for love, I don't know what love or crazy is. And if that's the case, I'm insane and should be locked up away from society. Immediately.

Until next time...
