I was invited to my friend's birthday party yesterday at this place called Yankee Doodles. There was only about ten of us. It was a sports bar and we played some arcade games there but mostly pool. I got there about an hour late though so I had cake right after the lunch which was a Yankee burger. It was pretty much just a regular burger but I think I might have tasted some salad dressing in there. It was still good, although, it seemed like the patty was slipping out from between the two pieces of bread. I don't know why, but some of the people that were at the party put ketchup and mustard in some coke or water, and then had the idea to make a friend drink it for five dollars. It looked so nasty too and we all pitched in some money, although I was eating so I didn't, but he still got his five dollars and he didn't like it either though because he was talking about how nasty it was for the rest of the day. Then the cake came and the frosting was yellow and red to he just didn't eat the top frosting. So after we left there, we went to the school near his house to play capture the flag and after awhile, an alarm went off and we all thought it was a car alarm, but it wouldn't stop so we figured it was the school alarm because after all, one of our friend's was on the roof! So we left then and went home to play the Birthday boy's new game: Halo Reach. That game is so fun. We also played some Call Of Duty. I had another party to go to that day, but I didn't go because I spent the night at the birthday boys house and so did the kid that climbed up on the roof of the school. We stayed up until about 6:00AM playing Halo online. Then I turned everything off, because everyone else dozed off, and so I did too. We woke up at about 8:00-9:00AM so I'm pretty tired right now. I also woke up feeling sick and I feel sick right now too, and the birthday boy told me that he just got done being sick so I could have caught whatever he had. But I have a strong immune system so I'm sure it will pass by tomorrow, at least I hope because I have soccer and school tomorrow. In the morning, I realized I couldn't find my little backpack I brought with me and it turns out I left it at Yankee Doodles. I'm so glad we found it though because It had many important things in there such as two memberships and my keys. So we got that back and then came home so I could finish my homework.

Steam is a software, I think, that you can download onto your computer and use it to play games off of, and you can buy games on there, and I found a free game called Alien Swarm, but it ran super slow on my computer so it looked like really crappy stop motion animation because the aliens would be at one place and be at another without you seeing them move there, but of course you knew where they were going. It really sucked so my dad put all the graphics really low on the game, and it got better. It was running more smoothly, but it still could have been running more smoothly, but there was nothing I could do. You could also see the small graphics difference, and I guess the graphics are only a luxury. But, my dad got this game, left for dead, awhile back when he had his own steam account, and he downloaded it, but he lost his account information, so when I typed in the bunch of letters and number to get it onto my computer, it said it had already been downloaded on another steam account, which was my dads so now we can't play it and that sucks. So I highly doubt that I will buy any games from steam because it will probably run really slowly like Alien swarm did. But maybe I just need a new graphics card, or I don't know. But steam looks like a really cool program.

My music has went to liking everything except country, but mostly Linkin Park music. Now since sophomore year of listening to my friends i-pod, it has changed to liking more scream-o and dubstep/techno. He introduced me into dubstep the other day, and I loved it. I asked him to make me a mix of dubstep songs he has, and he was I guess you could say excited to make it because he was impressing me by doing it and probably happy that hew as the one who put that influence of music in me. He is in my AP World History class and Honors English class. Sometimes I invite him to my house, like I did Wednesday, to work on the History outline and it works out. He has only been over twice though and the first we got less done than the second time, but I did invite someone else to go the first time, so that could have affected the results of the amount of work we got done. But, I suspect that we will get more done next time he comes over since we will probably adapt better to that sort of environment of working together. I hope that it becomes like a home to him so he will feel at home when he comes so it will be good. But he has definitely changed my taste in music as well as little inputs from other friends, but mostly him.
