Mass Effect 3!

Now I have many things to do this week, so it would be a bad idea to buy this game. A very bad idea, I’ll end up playing it and neglecting my huge to-do list, Beloved, the house, eating, sleeping and possibly breathing to play this game. I don’t have time for that at the moment, so I will be sensible and not buy it.

No, no I won’t.

NO. I will NOT.

Brain: buy it buy it buy it buy it buy it buy it buy it buy it

Sparky: NO! I have things to do!

Brain: More important than Mass Effect 3?

Sparky: Yes! I have work, we have to eat, the house needs cleaning.

Brain: That’s what sick days are for. And take away. And since when did a little dirt hurt anyone?

Sparky: I have stuff to write!

Brain: Mass Effect 3 will inspire you to write more. Inspiration! Energy! Enthusiasm. You can’t NOT buy this game

Sparky: Since when?

Brain: So say the rules I just made up. If I repeat them they’ll make sense.

Sparky: No, I’m not buying it.

Brain: Fine… oh, is this a credit card? Why, yes yes it is

Sparky: I’m moving it out of eye-line. There, temptation removed.

Brain: ok… but googling and checking the site wouldn’t hurt right? See, doesn’t it look shiny

Sparky: No! I’m closing the window! NOT LOOKING!  No, look, it’ll be cheaper on Steam eventually

Brain: You want to WAIT!? BLASPHEMER! You can afford it. And if you can’t, Beloved has 2 kidneys!

Sparky: I’m not killing him for a computer game

Brain: He has 2! He has a spare!

Sparky: No. Common Sense Brain, control temptation Brain!

Common Sense Brain: You’re going to buy it anyway. Every second you delay it is a second you spend obsessing over it rather than doing something productive. The sooner you download it, the sooner you complete it, the sooner it stops controlling your life

Sparky: this… makes sense

Actual Common Sense Brain: No it doesn’t! You’re rationalising your temptation and calling it common sense!!!

Sparky: Hush you! Fake Common Sense tells me I must buy this now!

Brain: Wooohoooo

 I am weak...
