I just got home to my apartment and remembered that before I had left, I’d opened my sliding door to let my place get some fresh air. It was much warmer on Thursday afternoon than it is now and I am freezing.

Thanksgiving was quite pleasant; I played scrabble with my grandma, wrestled around with my three little brothers (only knocking one lamp over) and gorged myself on turkey and stuffing and other goodies. Fortunately, I have the world’s fastest metabolism and probably lost weight by going home and not eating as continuously as I regularly do. Yesterday, I went to my friend Justin White’s house and hung out with him and his family. The White’s are really great people, they are kind and generous and always have an optimistic outlook on life. Justin had been planning on marrying his girlfriend this coming summer, but the genius got her pregnant and now they are getting married in January. He appears to be very happy about this new development and the new girl doesn’t seem to be Satan incarnate like the last one, so I am happy for him. I spent most of my time at their house playing Madden on Xbox 360; makes me glad I don’t have one or I would be an addict. We also watched the Apple Cup (which UW lost after giving up monster plays to WSU) and played a little World of Warcraft. Everyone I know who didn’t go to college and some who did are addicted to that game. I played it a little bit during college, but got bored and quit. I know a few guys who have spent thousands of hours playing it and I work with one guy who has spent 174 days of game time on one of two level 70 characters (the game keeps track of exactly how much total time you have played). If we double the 174 to account for two level 70s, then multiply that by 24 hours in a day and then divide that by a 40 hour work week and divide again by 50 work weeks in a year, we discover that my coworker has spent 4 FULL YEARS OF 40 HOUR WORK WEEKS PLAYING A COMPUTER GAME. My god, what could he have accomplished if he did something better with his time?!?! Probably not turned into such a douche.

Alright, I think my testicles are about to pull up permanently into my belly, so I’m going to put some pants on.
