When You're Asleep, You're Lucky
12:52 AM: Dick and Zach are apparently setting up a game of beer pong. This seems promising, in its way.
12:54 AM: Eric is still talking, and even Daniele looks like she wishes he would get to the point, and you know that's really something to marvel at. He keeps yapping on about how he maybe should align with the strongest players and "most bad-ass people in the house," and the fact that either of these people could be considered "bad-ass" is how you know it's a world gone mad.
1:02 AM: When we return from the half-hourly break, Eric is still telling Daniele the same shit he was telling her five minutes ago. This conversation is endless and meaningless. He does tell Daniele that it's pretty remarkable for her to ask for his loyalty after she and Dick spent a week excoriating and insulting him. Fair point. It is at this moment that I realize that Eric's voice sounds EXACTLY like someone I know personally and absolutely can't stand, and this is why he's given me the creeps ever since he walked in. Not even just tone of voice -- the condescending, obnoxious, know-it-all way he talks to everyone. It turns out I am personally biased against him for this reason. Shut up, "ERIC."
1:08 AM: Boring Strategypalooza continues on the main stage with Eric and Daniele.
1:11 AM: I note that Daniele looks like a grieving widow with a sort of scarf/hood thing pulled up over her head. I think she is still thinking about the horrible sight of Nick's dead body.
