I like my tendency to blog the most mundane moments of my week. So much seems to have happened. I hit the year-and-a-half mark with Jason, which wasn't nearly as happy as it should have been. I was in a slump after the Fourth of July went awry. Really, it wasn't a big deal, but I was really upset over not watching fireworks in my neighborhood. Instead, I saw them from a distance from the inside of a car whilst Jason drove around aimlessly. It wouldn't bother me so much, except they are banning fireworks entirely next year. I didn't get to have a Fourth of July last year due to work, and it seems that I didn't get one this year. It left me feeling devastated because it seemed like a piece of childhood was going away. I now have to watch fireworks from a show, which isn't nearly as amazing as watching them from the comfort of your own front yard. Actually, even thinking about it now makes me sad.
Anyway, it hit me hard and had me crying almost non-stop. Yeah, I'm a baby like that. And that feeling carried over to the next day, which happened to be our 18 months. For whatever reason, we seem to have a terrible time with special occasions. Our one year was like that, Valentine's Day was like that, and now this. Whoo. So that day I cried some more and we didn't do anything special. At least Jason was there for me, which helped, because the next day I woke up feeling fine and was able to get through the week.
So today I played Risk for the first time. Vicky and Eddie (her boyfriend) paired up against Jason and me. I know there aren't really "teams," but Vicky and I didn't know how to play, so the guys just made strategies for us. Ironically, Jason lost first, even though he had almost all of North America. That being said, he makes for a good strategist. He kept me in the game, when everyone thought that I would be the first to lose. Of course, I had spread my troops thin and was backed into a corner with Australia and a million forces guarding it at Siam. I knew I wasn't going to win. Vicky and Eddie dominated almost everything. So, I just decided to kamikaze everything and use my last strong force to thin out their troops. I got to Europe before running out of people. At that point, Eddie swooped in and dominated. The funny thing is that he took Vicky out before me, even though he could have easily destroyed me first. He backstabbed her at the last second. :P Bwahahaha.
Um, I basically wrote this because the Mountain Dew and pizza made me giggle like a maniac, and now I'm waiting for the caffeine high to subside.
