But I will wear my heart upon my sleeve

For daws to peck at: I am not what I am

Been addicted to this song recently: "Stuck in a groove" by Puretone:
"There's no doubt that I am afflicted
I'm totally obsessed
And I will admit it
Oh no, I'm not high
But I'm very much addicted to the music I like "

I have started reading Othello by Shakespeare. We will see how far I can get in the book before school starts back up. I have to hand it to Shakespeare for the clever and drawn out explanation of ideas.
Played Risk: 2210 A.D. with the typical group of gaming buddies. I attempted a new strategy of nuclear Holocaust (go for all the nuclear cards and then pull out the Armageddon card). I could have won with the strategy, but I stopped attacking 1 country short (and I had plenty of guys to continue attacking). Right before I played Armageddon, I did a mod reduction. After, my friend played like 5 nuke cards, then I played all my 10 nuke cards. I took out almost the majority of Asia, killing one player off. I completely finished off South America (because it was closed off due to the opening 8 nuked countries, yes we play with more nukes :D). The strategy works if you have a secure location to build troops, and collect cards. Playing defense until the end of the seconded to last turn allows a build up of troops, cut down the amount of troops on the board drastically of other players, then sweep through the board on the final year.

Changing topics: Thanksgiving was yesterday. Fun times, intense ping-pong, and finished with a spectacular showing of Iron Man in our amazing "theater" setup. I have a bucket for free popcorn at Celebration cinema, and since my sister loves movie popcorn, I went up to get her a bucket. Usually they don't check tickets before getting to the concession stand. However, this time there were, and I was like..."crap". I ended up going up and asking the person checking tickets if I could go get my popcorn, and they said yes! Thus my sister got to enjoy some movie popcorn. Got to love your big sisters, or else!

Cheers :)
