    Soon to be 25 (In about a month and a half or so) and I do bioremediation. Not sure for how much longer, though, because they're starting to cut back.

    And, I might be working at McDonald's in a month or so and I have a marine biology degree, so I wouldn't worry about that too much :p

    Your excuse should last longer than that. I am retired and my wife DOES ask me that question. My games usually run about 12 hours. Maybe she'll get used to it someday.

    I'm so glad I managed to get my girlfriend into Civ4. Now, whenever she complains about me playing too much Civ, I ask her if she wants to play. Almost inevitably she can't resist and we soon get started on a Hotseat game. Problem solved! :goodjob:

    If you have 2 computers near one another, you can play an online game together. That way turns are simultaneous so you don't have that down-time while waiting for them to finish their turn. ;)

    Of course, if you're playing Hotseat and she's new to the game, you can always use the downtime to give some tips on how to play the game. This works best if you're playing a teamed game, so that you're both on the same side anyway. :)

    If all else fails, you can always use the downtime between turns to get some work done. Have a piece of homework or business on your lap, and tend to it when it's not your turn. It's a surprisingly good way of getting things done (at least for some people).

    it works for me when hitting "end of turn" in space empires V. processing turns can take a several minutes there. I did half my thesis that way.

    Somebody had to pick up the slack while I was away. :p

    Since I'm back, I can update my info in this thread:

    39, Psychiatric nurse (Finally back to work! :D), and now part-time Forum Wing-nut.

    :lol::lol::lol:

    I tried desperately to get my former partner to play Civ with me, but noooooo. She would rather run simulations of molecular bonding and other such geeky stuff. "Video games are for kids!" That's what I get for taking up with a polymer chemist. :lol:
