Frankly, I just don't get energy drinks. That's probably mostly because I'm a non-responder when it comes to caffeine. I never get that pick-me-up boost that people are always talking about. The one time I gave caffeine a whirl was in college when I had a final I was completely unprepared for. I ended up popping 6 pills of vivarin that had been in that welcome-to-college-here's-a-shoebox-full-o
In addition to not having any pleasant stimulant effects, the amount of calories in a can of this stuff is insane. Six pack of energy drink vs ice cream sundae, and it's not even close. Not that you're forced to one or the other, but it just seems to be a huge mismatch.
So now that I'm done with the energy drinks, all the Wii's are on their way, the lego advent calenders are long gone, and I sold most of Connie's knickknacks for her, all I need is to find something new to flip to keep myself occupied. I picked up 10 copies of Blokus 3D at a good price and I'll see how those go. If I can't find anyone who wants to pay for them, they'll make for nice Christmas presents. Blokus 3D is based on Rumis, which I got a chance to try at Ubercon. It's not a bad game at all, and usually I'm not one for spatial puzzles. I'm not exactly bad at them, it's just that I prefer not to use my brain any more than necessary when playing board games. Anything that requires actual thought and concentration over an extended period of time is usually a downer.
