Video game - well, what can I say about thy magnanimity! How can I ever forget the countless occasions when thou hast rescued me from the malicious clutches of monotony! Were it not for thee, my leisurely hours would have been wasted upon the conventional feminine wiles like shopping, dressing-up and gossiping! Okay, that was way more emotional than I intended (I'm on the verge of sniffing back tears!).
