I'd suggest playing a campaign on some grand strategy game (eg Hearts of Iron, Europa Universalis). You could develop your own narrative and run us through your decision making process.

My phone once corrected the word "Grainger" to "Gulag". Probably doesn't say great things about the text conversations I have.

I've wasted a day trying to fix what I thought must be a bug in a program I've written for a university assignment.

After a five hour stint going through all my notes and rewriting the program, I decided to look in the test environment's manual and found listed one, specific bug that caused the problem. :wacko:

I'm on the last chapter of the Road to Wigan Pier by George Orwell and after that I plan to read The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami

It seems that sleep is beyond me right now. Not good since I have classes today.

Dear x

I don't think schadenfreude is an effective salve, maybe if you got some self-confidence you wouldn't need it.

The composer of the musical score for Tron and A Clockwork Orange (among other things) was known as Walter Carlos until 1972 when he had gender reassignment surgery and renamed herself Wendy Carlos.

(I have no idea if that's a good fact or not)

I've finally got an excuse to use the umbrella that's been lying in my room for weeks now.

A picture of me pretending to know how to fix a computer in a Tanzanian school.

The back of the tower gave everybody but me electric shocks for some reason, so I decided to take it apart becuase the alternative was teaching a class of 30+ pupils.

Did you know that wild llamas are known as guanacos?

Did you know that guanine, one of the nucleobases of DNA and RNA is abundant in guano?

Did you know that a smooth flow of a fluid is known as a laminar flow?

I'll think of facts that I don't tell people all the time later or something.

Just had a round of dance battles on Fight Night Round 3 that were quite funny. Made my (super late evening) day.

Cool. It's usually just your nipples that make you important ;o

Now I'm going to have to go to bed wondering what that means.  :'(
