How the other half lives...

Or rather, what the Royal Family does for entertainment.

I'm sure you all must be overwhelmed with curiosity as to how we spend our time when we aren't pondering the mysteries of the universe and wacing poetic about them here.

Well, wonder no longer for I am about to enlighten you.

In a nutshell, we have no life. Let me explain. We have an Xbox 360. And a 42" HDTV. We don't need a life beyond that, right?

Actually, both the Empress and the Prince Consort are AVID gamers. We have fights (well not fights exactly) but *discussions* over who gets to use the Xbox and the "loser" has to go play on the PC.

Our current listing of games in circulation would look something like this:
  • Need For Speed Most Wanted (aka NFS Most Wannabe)
  • Burnout Revenge
  • EA Fight Night 3

(Gotta love having a GameFly subscription)

And from the Xbox Live Arcade:
  • Galaga
  • Street Fighter II Hyper Fighting
  • Uno
  • Hexic HD
  • Pac Man
Lest you think we are unidimensional, we also have a NEtflix subscription that keeps us well entertained (and saves us a prodigious amount of the benjamins on cable) so we can keep up with our favorite current TV series(es).

They are in no particular order:
  • Battlestar Galactica (the NEW ONE)
  • 24
  • Lost
  • Desperate Housewives
  • Grey's Anatomy
  • Boston Legal
  • ST: Enterprise
  • ST: Voyager
Along with these current hit shows, there are also the classics which keep ME entertained (camp and other) such as:
  • Wonder Woman
  • Buck Rogers in the 25th Century
  • Star Trek - The Original Series
  • Knight Rider
  • The Greatest American Hero
  • Charlie's Angels
and so on...

Life doesn't get any better than this, actually.

We also get 17+ channels of HDTV programming over-the-air (aka FREE) via the $20 rabbit ears that the Prince Consort found at Target.
