Dirty little secrets

Dirty little secret No. 1; I am addicted to Haribo Strawbs.  I used to really be into Starmix, but when I came back from holiday in April I got such severe headaches and felt so ill, I knew that relationship had to end.  I then tried to do cold turkey, but last month went back on the wagon.  I could eat a packet in a day, but I try to stretch it to two days.

Dirty little secret No. 2 is....Mario Kart DS.  It's been the only game in my DS since late March.  I took it out and played Brain Training...for a few minutes.  Then I switched back to Mario Kart.  I even play it on the train home from work, sometimes finding that my body is turning and my elbows keep bumping the poor unsuspecting passenger next to me as I power break into corners and try to avoid banana skins in the road.

I don't know if there's a cure.  Right now I'm trying to get a rating above D and E in the 150 class and when I get that win and unlock something new, I might stop.  And there are still some Strawbs left over for tomorrow....
