I'm an obtuse man, so I'll try to be oblique

Let us see here. Not too much has been happening in the past couple of weeks.

I've been playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 a lot, but not as much as my friends have been lately. They've had the game for about half the time I have (I got it the day it came out), but they've already logged more hours and built up better profiles than I have.

That game is really addictive, man. It can also be so frustrating that I won't pick it up for a few days at a time just because I'm afraid of playing a crappy game. It's really annoying when I kick some ass in one round only to turn around and get my ass handed to me in the next. Bluh.

I think the combination of a leveling system and the game's online community make it at least moderately more addictive than it otherwise would be. I know that I'll play for another hour or two if I'm close to reaching the next level with my character. I also know that my friends will play longer if they have friends who are online at the time. The latter makes me glad that I bought a Playstation 3 instead of an XBox 360 because no one I know has one, so I don't have any friends on The Playstation Network, which means I'm probably playing less than I otherwise would be. And thank god, because my friends spend a lot more time on this game than I do. It's not like I have anything better to do, but I do feel guilty whenever I piss away a whole afternoon playing some stupid video game.

Lots of drinking this past weekend. It was Daren's birthday, so for the first time in a while, I decided to drink as much as I could. I ended up having about twelve beers that night. I woke up intoxicated and somewhat hungover the next day, so I...went out and bought fourteen more (and drank at least eleven of them.)

I regret doing that. It's been a while since I've done anything like that, so when I sobered up and realized how stupid I acted that night, I felt much worse than I normally would've. I'm also craving alcohol right now in a way I haven't in several months, and it's getting harder and harder for me to recover from drinking in a timely fashion. I have no intention of giving in to the urge to drink again until this feeling passes, because I think I'll just end up going on another bender.

Another thing that's been bothering me for a while, though, is the fact that it seems like it's taking me more than 24 hours to get over a hangover now. It used to be that I'd recover before going to bed the following night and feel completely normal the day after that, but not anymore. I'm not really sure why this is. One reason is definitely the fact that I don't eat nearly as much as I normally would when I drink. And that's because I'm broke. FML. Another reason is probably the fact that I hardly sleep when I go on drinking binges. I often won't sleep until nine or ten o'clock the next morning, but then I'll be back up just four or five hours later. That's probably most of the reason why I had trouble getting out of bed this morning.

Anyway, uh, I'm tired of typing. CYA
