This fourth of July, I started the day at a family dinner pool party, spent the early afternoon watching BBC’s Sherlock with my grandmother who instantly fell in love with it, and tonight, I will be in my home study playing Civilization V Gods & Kings probably until 4 or 5 a.m.

Exhibit B: This college student hooked his laptop up to a 64″ high definition television screen, just like our friends Ashly and Ian out East. I need this! A trip to Best Buy or Nebraska Furniture Mart will be happening shortly. Better yet, I need to create a Civilization V war room like the White House Situation Room. That would be amazing.
The best part? The soundtrack will be through the Bose surround sound system, meaning when I declare war, the game will be intense. I don’t want to go to work tomorrow … but I will. I should. This needs to happen ASAP!
