"I Don't See It That Way"

Oh my god, it has been 12 days since my last post!! I apologise whole heartedly. I have been meaning to post though, but with the 30+ (celsius) temperatures everyday, it seems like a bit of a hassle, that and the tv/movies/gaming that I have been carrying out for the vast majority of my waking hours.

Got myself a portable MP3 player. It's a Samsung YHJ-70L, so I have 30 gig to fill up with music, pics and movies and I'm going to thoroughly enjoy it! Finally, I'll no longer have to keep switching CD's at uni or burning CD's for that purpose, yay!

I was going to talk a little bit more about the race riots in Sydney a few weeks ago, but I have decided to leave that one for a later post because I think it will take a while, and time is something I don't have a lot of right now.

I have finally finished GTA: San Andreas! About bloody time too, considering all the time I have put into it. But alas, even though all the missions are done, I am only about 70% done on my completion scale, so there's still a long, long way to go yet. However, that hasn't stopped me on my random killing sprees, where I just roam about town shooting anything that moves, so cathartic.

What's awful about these holidays is that I have no time!!! I haven't even read anything, and I feel so guilty about that. That's compounded by the fact that I still have a hell of a lot left to go in The Fountainhead, and I think it's been about 7 months since I last picked it up!! I don't even know what the book is about anymore! I'm not even writing songs!!! That's shocking I tell you, my holidays are being wasted so badly. I have some new rhythm parts done, and a few lines of lyrics here, but nothing substantial, and I think I got the wrong adapter, so I can't plug my guitar into my soundcard yet. But people, I am loving 5.1 surround sound!! Even at night, when I can't listen to music loudly, the new headphones are working just a treat!
Don't fret though, the other may be legally dead according to the lack of his blog entries, however, he is still writing songs and sending me his stuff now and then.

Gaah, that means that with this year coming to a close really fast, that I have to get so much done in January. That probably means I won't be able to go overseas in January, but that may be ok.

I have also finished Lord Of The Rings: The Battle For Middle Earth, for those not familiar with it, it's a strategy game, much in the same vein of Warcraft, C&C etc. but much simpler. The battles are on a massive scale, and there's barely any micromanagement, so it's easy for a beginner to pick up and play. I have played it almost solidly for the last 2 months, for about 4-5 hours a day, and it was a real treat. Even if you're not a fan of the movie, or strategy games, I think it is still worth a look in. So awesome, it almost killed me, but I did it!

Gabrielle Boyle is back from her holidays and is also doing weather duties on local news, so I am absolutely ecstatic!! She's even better looking than before, which I didn't think was possible. The rest did her a world of good!

So the wealthiest man in Australia died a few days ago. Kerry Packer was worth about 6-7 billion Australian dollars (personally) and now all the tributes are flowing in for him. I know there is a certain respect etc, with being dead and what not, but the guy was a tyrant! Most of the tributes regard charity and such, but when you're so rich that you can afford to give millions of dollars away, it really amounts to nothing percentage wise of his total income. On average, ordinary people give a lot more to charity than he does. He challenged regulations that were there to protect small media operators, and since he was friends with the Government (and not to mention contributed a hell of a lot to their campaign funds), got them changed to favour him, and in the process, drove a lot of other people out of business and also resulted in the dreaded convergent media effect, where one person owns a lot more of the media, which means that you will get less varied opinions on news and what not, and things become single sided. He also had the balls to challenge a Senate inquiry into his attempts to take over another company (when there were restrictions at the time stopping him from doing so). In a perfect world, he should have been held on parliamentary contempt. Not just that, he was also a nefarious tax dodger. He only paid about 15 cents to the dollar of any other person in the country. This is ridiculous. I don't care if he's dead, we should all dance on his grave and look forward to the day when James Packer runs the company into the ground (which we know he will), and the wealth can hopefully return to the people, where it belongs.

There have been 6-7 murders in our city this year. That is like a huge increase, since we're only used to 1, maybe 2 at the most in one year. What's happening, we're turning into LA! What's even worse is that most of them are unsolved. I don't think our local police force is equipped enough to handle these sort of investigations, especially since we're a town of only 350,000. I also know the son of one of the victims, this just adds a whole new dimension to everything. I hope there isn't a serial killer about, because the police are offering no clues as to anything.

Oh well, that's enough food for thought for now. I'll update a bit more frequently hopefully!! Have a nice day folks!

"Who knows what we'll find?"

I apologise, time did not permit yesterday, and thus, this new post comes to you a day late.

The other has still YET to blog!! He better do it some time soon, but alas, he has a good excuse, so I shall carry on with this on my own in the mean time.

I've figured out the reason why I haven't posted periodically. It's due to a change in my blogging habits. I usually used to update after doing my daily netchecklist (I look up various news and current affairs sites every night at 12), but these days I do my checklist then watch something. This means that I didn't update, and for that I'm sorry, but I'll do my best to keep up with the hard work, and restore the blog to it's former glory with some magnificent posts, filled with many insights. The change to my habits will come some time soon.

I can finally chalk up another finished series, I'm finally done with Clone Wars, which I must say wasn't very good. It was geared towards a child audience, but what did I expect, given that it's a freakin' CARTOON, and is on the Cartoon Network for Heaven's sake, haha! Oh well, it gave me something to do at least.

Why is it that the rich and powerful always get free stuff?! It makes no logical sense! I'm not going to give Bill Gates a computer, nor am I going to give Tom Cruise a DVD of The War Of The Worlds. They go to awards and premieres and just get dumped with a crap load of free stuff that they can easily afford and have access to! Cars, music, gadgets!! Like what the hell?! That's how we can tell something is wrong with society!! When stuff goes to those who don't need it, yet those who need the most help get nothing. There are still poor people in the world, and I honestly think the problem could be easily fixed, but alas, everyone would need to contribute and we all know that's not going to happen. People are greedy at their very core, and I hope we all pay the price for it someday.

As mentioned, I went to a party the other night, but I forgot to mention that I came up with some absolutely golden lyrics (which usually happens at parties), but of course I eventually forgot them!! I need to take my notebook with me everyday! Ideas strike me at the most random of times I tell you. I still have not written a damn song in these holidays.

I think I have agoraphobia, I don't have a fear of crowds totally, but they make me uncomfortable and I really dislike it. I don't even know what it is about them. Women, what a strange bunch they are. I feel like I'm getting a low opinion of them, and once again I am totally clueless as to why that is. Interesting, don't you think? Hopefully the problem will soon be rectified.

My guitar playing has hit new heights, and I find that playing for like 30 mins each night is just doing wonders for building up new skills. I'm playing well above my level and I'm loving it to bits, my fingers are finely tuned machines!!! Speaking of which, tomorrow/today shall be the day to plug in the other's comp and start getting to work on some tracks.

Saw a strangely amusing thing on the way to dinner with a parental unit today. There was a car next to us that seemed to be following us from our side of town to the place we were having dinner. In the rear passenger seat was some girl, probably 16-17 who was utterly gorgeous, and she was just sitting there with her head against the window, as if being with her parents was like the most cruel of punishments. I was utterly fascinated, and she kept staring at me as if she was fascinated with me too. I was even more weirded out when I found that her car had parked near us at the place we were having dinner but alas, that was the last I saw of her. I wrote a song a while back (one that the other and I had actually finished in it's entirety), and it resembled moments like that, although slightly different. When we're famous, you'll get to know the story behind that!

Yes, Sydney did have race riots. They were labelled race riots, and people were demonstrating over the issue of race, yet the leaders of our country refuse to admit that race was a factor. How odd! Considering that it was this Government's policies and tactics of promoting fear which lead indirectly to the demonstration, what else could be expected. Some of the footage I saw was some of the craziest shite I had ever seen in my life, and I'm quite the jaded fellow, so you can just imagine!! For those who say that there isn't a race problem in Australia, I say take a walk in the shoes of a racial minority and we'll see how you feel then. The problem is not being addressed, and gahh! I'm actually quite tired, so I'll have to devote another post to this very soon! Have a nice day folks!

"I missed the last bus, I'll take the next train"

Yes! It hasn't been a full week since my last post, so there's no need to apologise, and hence this update is totally legitimate!

My holidays are absolutely shocking, parties, tv, movies, games, it's all impossible! I'm getting to sleep at around 6am and getting up at 1pm (thanks partly to getting hooked on vanilla coke again). I've finished Mythbusters Season 1, Chappelle's Show Season one, and I'm close to finishing season 2.

The last party I went to was crazy because of all the people who I hadn't seen since high school. There were plenty of shocks, it's been 5 years since high school and people have changed so much, not just aesthetically speaking, but psychologically and it's good to see people grown up now.

I forgot to mention last time that our grades came back ages ago and I did remarkably well, probably my best set of grades at uni so far, so I am sitting pretty.
It also means that I'm spending way too much money, DVD drive for old comp, sound system for new comp, , stereo headphones, soon to be sound card for new comp, soon to be presents for their birthdays and it's all just nuts! I also want to buy stuff for me too!

I saw Donnie Darko last week and it was absolutely DAMN SCARY! I was so disturbed, it was sheer brilliance. I couldn't sleep that night. Even though Jake Gyllenhaal looked like KD Lang when he was young, and in some parts his acting was sub-par, he did an all-round good job of carrying the film. I may even have to have to add it to my all time faves list.

I'm watching Growing Up Gotti and I'm absolutely disgusted with the judicial system. We all know where the money came from!! Money from illegal activities need to be seized and used to help alleviate the burden on the tax payer (the ordinary law abiding citizen), it's just not fair. Politicians say that they're the best citizens, and everything should be done in their favour, but nobody wants to help them or make things easier for them. One thing I really hate gangsters and gangster families who idly sit by. In equity there's a maxim "one cannot benefit from one's own crime", yeah I'd love to see it in practice some day. It's saying basically that mob people are cool and have free range to do whatever they like.

Once again, I'd like to express my disgust with uni admin. They've re-done the class enrollment system, and the system is SCREWED. You can't enrol in classes properly, and if there's a breach, you can't enrol in class. This is the stupid part, even if you've done the pre-requisite, the thing will say that you haven't done it, and you can't enrol in class!! You have to go into uni and fill in forms to enrol, and they still haven't told us what needs to be done then! Absolutely awful.

Eddie Van Halen, eat your heart out! I have mastered harmonics of all kind, natural, artificial, pinch and even tapped! I have tapped like a mofo, and now my nails are all cracked, shattered and falling apart and I love it!! I will plug the other's comp in and have a grand time recording some new tracks some time REAL soon, I promise!! Good post to come tomorrow if there's time.
Have a nice day folks!

"Like a trip on the Mary Celeste, let's put it to the test"

It has been WAYYY too long since the last post! I apologise. But you also must blame the other, as he was meant to be blogging, but there's nothing, NOTHING I tells ya! Anyhow, I'm on holidays and I realised I have absolutely NO time for anything. I have so many things to do, but my time management is so shite, that it'd take me the best part of a year to get them all done at the rate I'm going at.

I'm usually getting to bed at 4am, and waking up at 1pm. Then in the day it's some afternoon tv, then evening tv. At night it's this awesomely superb Lord Of The Rings Battle For Middle Earth strategy game! It's so addictive. I've finished the good campaign and it was a delight, but it took WAYY too long, now I'm doing the evil campaign and those poor bastards have it tough.
My friend also gave me a shiteload of movies and complete tv series which I have to watch!!! Oh there's time for nothing I tell you!

Then there's the bloody music I have to make! I still haven't plugged in the other's comp! I was meant to plug in my guitar and record stuff so all our stuff would be semi complete, but I'm just too damn lazy. I bought a surround sound 5.1 system for the comp that I can plug my consoles, VCR, DVD player and TV into, but I need to buy a soundcard first in order to get it to work properly cause I'm only getting 2.1 out of it now, but still in awesome quality.

Refer to my notes in my last entry or recently anyway, about judgement day and so on. Considering some of the thoughts I've had, things are going to be hell-arious indeed. I can't wait to find out some of the other stuff that's going on from the complete realm of human existence. There's some messed up stuff going on, that's for sure.

I really don't get people who say that the world we live in is scary and nobody cares about anything. By using that kind of reasoning, we condone that kind of world, and things eventually get worse, and it's the fault of those kind of people. Things can be fixed. We do need optimists unfortunately! Hehe, that's it for today. Maybe an update for the Joaquin rate list next time eh? Have a nice day folks.

"In a sky full of people, only some want to fly"

I am done!! Thank you very much indeed. Exams are over, and now I can look forward to 3 months of sheer relaxation. It wasn't that bad at all actually, I'm quite pleased with how I went. But then again, results are still a month away, but hopefully I'll have done damn well, considering the amount of work I put in.

The other has departed, and he shall be having a grand time. I hope to be joining him sometime soon, so we can ham it up overseas and get up to all sorts of mischief.

Well as mentioned, I'm now on holidays, so you can expect the blog entries to be a lot more frequent. Mmm, bloggy goodness, haha!

Today was day 1 of return to extreme fitness regime. It's only ever implemented in the holidays, because I am usually just sitting around all day, so it keeps me active, and stops me turning into a blob. Ahhh, I managed to complete it, but I am in sooo much pain!! Ouchies!! Oh well, it'll get better after a few days of repetition.

I found THEEE coolest jacket ever. The Brainiac host Richard Hammond wears it most of the time, and I'm going to purchase it next week, it looks so damn cool!!! I am twiddling my thumbs in anticipation.

I think it's hell-arious how all the different faculties/schools think their way of thinking is the guiding light of society. Law - without law, we're a society of nothing. Economics - where would we be without it? Science - it's the mother of everything, without it, nothing exists. So on and so forth. That's the problem with the world. It's a clash of ideologies these days. A paradigm shift is perhaps the hardest thing a person can ever emotionally go through, so obviously, it's not easy - if not even possible to change people's perceptions and opinions on such a base value/belief.

By the way, I've enabled the option for a word verification on comments, this was done in order to stop spam comments, which are absolutely horrendous. Damn you advertising people, you've gone too far!!! The other knows all about their evil ways, so I'll leave it to him to fill you in later on.

In most major religions, there is a concept of judgement day. Where humanity is resurrected and they are judged on their good deeds, weighed against their sins as the basis for whether they get into heaven or not. On that day, there are no secrets, and everybody learns everything about everyone's life. If you think about it, what would the possible repercussions be?! People will find out if they've been screwed over by those close to them and other like things. Would there even be a point for heaven if such devastating things like that are out in the open? Who knows? Not I! And that's it for today.

Have a nice day folks!!

Big trips are flip for nozzle korg

So here's the breakdown. My next two exams are on the 17th, which gives me a whole lot of nothing to do between then. Both exams are sighted, so I know what's coming, and I've prepped for it, so I have nothing to worry about. One exam is one hour, so it won't be too much of a stretch, and it's just basic essay format. It's on legal theory too, and my specialty is post-modern law, and I could pass that with a blindfold on. The other one is a three hour exam, essay format, 3 q's. For the first time ever, we get allowed notes, and I managed to fit all of my essays (in note form) on 2 pages (maximum allowed) and I am sitting pretty. It's a work of art, no wasted space, and all in miniature form, I'm so proud of myself!

You know that we spend too much of our lives in front of screens? Right now, it's a computer screen, other times it's a television screen, if not that, it's a movie screen. It's not good for our eyes, I bet it's a conspiracy with the entertainment world AND optometrists all over the world, in order to make money, and make us disabled! I'd like to see the real world, unmediated through a screen thank you!

I finally did it! I finished the craziest ever custom mission on Swat 4, which was my own evil concoction. My team of 5, against 30 suspects, in a confined space and it was awesome. I can't tell you how many times I've attempted it!!! The last time I came close, I wasn't injured but I couldn't find the last suspect, after 1 hour of searching so I gave up. But this time, my entire team was wiped out fairly quickly and I was left to lone wolf it for 10 suspects in a heavily injured state, and I came out on top! It's lovely, cause it was one of those missions where you're either going to get wasted in 180 seconds, or on the last 2 suspects (which is really annoying). I'd never be cut out for real Swat. I remember having my team focused on a door that I was picking the lock to, quick flashes of red, I'm on the floor - some lady had opened a door down the corridor and just opened fire on my unsuspecting team!! Other times I just run blind through corners and I get blasted, which is fantastic cause I gave the suspects better weapons than Swat, so even if they miss, you will get sprayed slightly, and injuries to the legs are nasty, because you're just a sitting duck.

Hmm, next update will probably be after exams. Have a nice day folks!!

Slow motion

What is wrong with the internet today?! I swear, it's running worse than my dial up days (and that's saying something on a 256k broadband connection).

Well as promised, here's an update. I really hate it when there's a long time between one exam and another. Granted, the study time is great, but when you've studied as much as you can, it's just torture, because you can't do anything fun without feeling guilty. But all my notes are done, and all I have to do is sit the damn exams.

How awful, I thought I had something interesting to say, now I can't remember what the hell it was! Oh well, good day people, good day.

"Like a decapitated chicken in the midst of it's death throes"

I am SO sorry it has been so long since my last post. Trust me, the other isn't dead, he's alive and well and quite busy, as am I.

We're both in the midst of having exams so there won't be that many updates, but after that, you can rest assured that this blog will return in all it's former glory and then some!! You can bet on that.

I really have not been doing much else besides studying and watching ludicrous amounts of television. I can take comfort in the fact that the studying has been worthwhile though, and that all the downloading of various television series' will pay off as soon as my last exam is over the 17th of this month.

Guitar wise, I decided to grow my nails out so I could finger pick like a demi-god. And I could. However, I kept scratching my freakin' face off in my sleep so I had to cut them off (and they were at a really good length, leading many to believe that I was a confused transvestite ladyboy). The problem now is that it has been a good 2-3 months since I last held a pick, and now I am about as shit as I was when I first picked up the damn thing about 2 and a half years ago. What's scary is that my thumb is super fast, I can practically tremolo pick with it, and it's also very accurate. Ahh if only I had a thumb pick!

Well anyhow, this is just a note to let you know that we're not dead and that we shall return to our blogging ways as soon as possible!! Have a nice day folks.

Insert something melodramatic and attention seeking here -->

I had the funniest/craziest moment of my life on Monday afternoon. I can't divulge more - but I am all the better for it.

Come to think of it, this whole week has been a madhouse. Something is wrong with the space/time continuum cause things are strange indeed.

Someone in my class was wearing a top fashioned in a "Public Enemy" way, but it said "Public Emily" (it is her name) and I thought it was awesome.

I'm easy to please these days.

But I'm even easier to anger.

Have a nice day folks!

Random I know

Yes 'tis random but I consider this to be THE greatest lowbrow post of all time

I got this medical dictionary and it is damn funny.
For example:
'Prader-Willi syndrome'
= a congenital condition in which obesity is associated with mental retardation and small genitalia.
Basically, life sucks for you!!!!!!
Imagine you only had 2 of those 3 symptons - which would you have?
Personanlly, i'd go for obesity and small genitalia.
Yeah i know, but then i could use my mind to realise i can get surgery.
Thinking 'outside' the box.

And which 2 of the 3 would you pick??! Have a nice day folks.

I'm not worth the fuss

I really wish I had more common sense. That is to say I wish I was smart enough to realise that it's pointless to come to school on days where I start early cause I can just listen to the lecture online and just show up for my tute later in the day instead of rotting in the library with nothing to do. It's made worse when it's all rainy and cold in the morning and my bed is so warm.

Note to self, start bringing your crap to school so you can do work here like you used to in first year.

Whyyyyyyyyy oh whyyyyyyy are most people stupid? Do you have an answer for that? I don't, so that's why I'm asking you!

I really enjoy how our breaks usually don't coincide with secondary or other school breaks. This means that in our breaks we are free to roam around and not be hassled by mini gangsters and 10 year old crack hoes. It also means that when the previously mentioned people are strolling about like they own the place, we are too busy at uni to care.

Is the world in danger of becoming too politically correct? What in the hell is wrong with that? It's the path to tolerance. When you stop being mindful of such things, you start to offend people but I'm sure that's how some people would like it to be.

Why are PR students so freakishly attractive?! Do they have a criterion that one has to be hot in order to enrol in that course?! Highly dubious but alas, I am not complaining.

How come people never drive carefully in the wet? It's been my experience from watching people on the road on rainy days that people tend to drive faster and take a lot more risks in conditions where you sure as hell should not. I also saw 2 accidents the other day on my way to school which was absolutely priceless. One girl was speeding on the parkway (speed limit of 100km/h, 'twas raining heavily and she must have been going 130) and I knew she was in for some trouble and anyway a firetruck was on it's way to the scene of accident 1, then when the girl saw the fire truck she panicked, and just slammed on the anti lock brakes...straight line skid....for about 30m....straight into a light pole! FUCKING HELL-ARIOUS! What the hell?! The road was clear and she could have swerved to the right, hell she coulda pulled a rally turn and gone completely sideways and not hit anything but nope....straightttt into the pole and knocked it over. It was so low speed that I actually laughed instantly (don't worry, she was alright), but still giggle worthy none the less.

How am I supposed to waste the next hour of my life before my next class? How sad is that? Actually trying to find a way to waste time, that's not what life is about, but thus, that's what I'm reduced to. But whatever it is, it can't be blogged. Have a nice day folks!

So tell me why?

I'd like to know why I'm sitting in the computer lab in the law building with and hour and 20 minutes till my next class in a business suit! Oh that's right, I had to do an assignment and damn I was awesome. Hmm I could sure go for some food right about now.

My assignment was awesome, but they said I was a lil too aggressive with my questions but alas, which I feel bad about cause I've known my interviewee for 16 years and she's very nice. But I do have the highest mark in the class woohooo! It wasn't looking too good this morning though, the wrong foundation was applied and I looked like Krusty The Klown and I had to result to wiping that crap off on my way here. But it's allllll good!

I hope it doesn't rain on my way out of here tonight or else my suit is gonna be stuffed and that's not cool. I saw some girl do her interview after mine and her talent was HAWT, too bad she was really nervous and it came out really dodgy. Who cares?! She's hot! Sorry, that is to say she's HAWT. That's just a hotness all of it's own.

I'm just going to attempt to write in here until I'm bored and I can no longer take it. The nails on my right hand are growing quite nicely, it does help with the finger picking but it screws you up for other things such as scratching one's face or even typing on the keyboard or using a freakin' mobile phone.

Alright here's the deal, 4 weeks of uni left until exams. In 2 weeks I have an essay due (don't worry about this, this is all just for my memory). I've done 1200 words out of 2000 so it should be looking fine as long as I do lil bits of work here and there. In that same week I have a 15 minute speech to do which should be fine since that's almost done. A week after I have a 2000 word essay to do on that speech, which I am aiming to have done within that week so I should be sitting pretty. In that same week I have a 5 minute speech to do for another class but that should be ok since it's only worth 5% and I could probably just make it up on the spot and do well. Then in the final week I have a 2000 word report due, which I SHOULD be able to do within a week as long as I get my act together and start taping shows to compare.

I have an exam on my birthday, that's awful!

Ties are awful, they really do cut off the circulation to one's head and I think that it's VERY possible to die if one was too tight. I also don't like that discomfort, even if it's on very loosely, you can steel feel it around your neck and it's not very nice.

I have some notes at home, so this ends it for today and enjoy yourself people!

Am I Hiding In The Shadows?!?

I aplogize. There is nothing really more to say about it. The last few weeks has just been crazy. I'm just going thru one of those phases in my life that I can't avoid. Hehe lets leave that there, I don't want to get into details. On the flip side, its been a year since I started this blog, and it looks like over the year, my life has gone thru a full circle, and now I am almost getting back to where I started. At this point, I can't wait till this sememster is over, so I can just sit back and unwind.

Firstly, writing a long essay on 12 centuries of communication history was completely tiresome. I have come to a conclusion, I hate doing essay that don't allow me to express any of my opinions. How the hell an I supposed to get into someting in a lot of depth, without alizing anything. But hey what can I do. And on top of that, they have made letcures compulsury, they bloody take attendence. Thats just bullshit, and I feel like I am back in high school.

Well looks like I got a year older, and joined another generation, not a kid anymore. Though I would like to convince you that I am still a kid. That day went by just how I would want it. All over in a cloud of smoke. I would like to thank Army Boi for making it all happen. It was awesome. But I am still waiting for two boxes from my brother, hopefully should be at the others place in a week or so. Hehe who doesn't like presents.

Alright, I am just going to stop here for today, gotta get something into this small stomach of mine. Seems to be growling. Till next time.

Don't seduce prisoners, they'll hurt you

Not very much to say this time around, unfortunately. My life has just been about studying, even over the break but that's alright.

Soon all my assessment will be done and I can rest easy!! I've finally done it! I've finished Swat 4! And what insanity it was. The realism factor is just ridiculous. The last level is pure evil, the place is swarming with armoured well armed people in a gigantic map. We'd cleared all rooms, and after various injuries my team of 5 had been reduced to just me and a heavily injured non lethal specialist. After making him go into a room we'd already cleared, some dude with a shotgun took care of him right next to the doorway and then I charged in and shot him in the head. Unfortunately the mission had not ended! I then decided to walk around cautiously in my injured state. And after searching for about 20 minutes (real time) I found the guy crouched and hiding in a corner at the end of a hallway...looking in totally the opposite direction from which I was approaching. Instead of risking moving closer and making him submit, I just clocked him with a headshot from 30 m out. Mission over, I'm awesome!

We've been researching the effects of porn in one of my comm classes and in our tute, some girl was talking about anal sex and ass boy stared at his shoes looking very guilty, I almost erupted in laughter!

I was with a friend the other day and we visited one of her friends in a jewellery store and she was checking me out! In less than subtle ways, it was grand. Oh there's no importance in that, I just thought I'd mention it so I wouldn't forget!

I'm really enjoying the Lonely Planet: Six Degrees series. It's an interesting way at looking at and experiencing other countries. I must visit France!!!!

How good is The Associates??! Canadian shows are so underrated. The law is realistically portrayed and the characters don't all get along, it's like a real office setting. Then there's shows like Ally McBeal, where everyone loves each other and it's all happy! We need more shows like this! That's it for today folks. Have a nice day!

He never woke up!!!

Well, it's been WAY too long since my last post, forgive me as I have been slack. But not TOO slack though. I have been doing plenty of uni work over the break, but unfortunately rather slowly. Striking up that fine balance between work and play is tough, cause I have been about 30% work, 70% play. Hopefully I'll get my act back together when uni is back on this week. One would hope so especially since all that work is due quite soon, but no need to fuss since the tough parts have all been done.

The other may be dead! I have told him to blog but alas, to no avail! Hopefully he'll start again once he's back to work too.

I also blame my skewed holiday work ethic towards ROM games and emulators!! I recently discovered the goodness of the GENS emulator and a different Master System one and I have about 140 games all up and I have just been enjoying the sheer brilliance of nostalgia. I also love being able to save a game at any point!! Really great just before boss battles or entering new territory. Ahh, how I miss old games! They required balls to complete. Games these days are too realistic, and bogged down in graphics and such. What happened to the good ol fun factor? Who remembers the insanity of MK2 and fighting the monstrosity that was Kintaro, only to get the crapped kicked out of you by Shao Kahn?! And Sonic!! Some of those Robotnik battles require you to think like a mathematician, no child could figure that stuff out. Also brings back memories of the other and I playing Lego Star Wars!!

I really hate hypocrites. The kind that lash out at you for something, and then you find out that they're guilty of the exact same thing. It's even worse when you're completely an innocent party. Ahh, but it also does bring with it the possibility of sweet revenge, and the savouring that shall follow after a plan is well executed.

You know what's strange? That all major religions presuppose the existence of money (or any form of currency). There are citations such as having to donate to charity or to take care of the "lesser" members of society. Why is there that assumption that poor people will always exist? With religion, isn't it a primary directive not to fear anything because we're heading somewhere good when we die? So why look after poor people? The quicker they're dead, the quicker they can be happy. Does religion assume that there'll never ever be an ideal world? If that's the case, why bother with religion in the first place? We SHOULD steal, we SHOULD kill and so on and so forth.

There's also a point of the pre-existence of a money/power relationship. Obviously those that have the money have the power. If poverty is wiped out, does religion get contradicted? Will poverty always need to exist in order to keep it sensical? Haha, I sound like a freakin' Republican! "Ending poverty is the path to communism!!" haha!

That's it for today folks. Have a nice day!

But Before Tomorrow

What's up!! This is my last day of university for 2 weeks, woohooo!! Of course I have a mountain of work to do over the break so it's not going to be smooth sailing. Damn, I just realised that I don't have anything to say and my blognotes are at home!! Haha, ahh what to do with my 4 hour break now? I don't know, but I'm off! Have a nice day folks.

Lost Souls Forever

Again I apologise for my lengthy absence, but I have now returned, so do not fear!

Haha once again it has happened. Just like 24, I have watched a show just because of an attractive female, only to discover that the show is actually pretty good in terms of story line and acting. The new example is Hustle on the ABC. It's a British show about con artists and it's brilliantly done (and yes, Jaime Murray is a FOX).

Woohoo! Only 1 more week of school and then a good 2 week break. Unfortunately I have an absolute SHITELOAD of work due afterwards so I'm going to be extremely busy. I attended a Law Revue last night (of course at our rival university), and it was an absolute riot! So much wit, law related in-jokes and politically incorrect humour, I loved it. It was also helped by the fact that there were some damn attractive women in the troupe, and now I'm cursing my luck for not having such sophisticated, good-looking women in our law program.

And had some scary shocks last week. I found out Missionary Girl is 24!! My entire class for that unit is at least 24!!! They're all final year freaks!! How could this be happening??! Why am I so young compared to everyone else? I'm doing my classes in the proper order, it makes no sense. I also sat next to her in that class and she ABSOLUTELY wreaked!! I am willing to attribute it to being an early morning class and she must have just ran up from her dorm at the last minute and wasn't able to get ready. But argh, I had to lean over to the other side of the desk in order to stop myself short of gasping for air. That's 2 girls within 6 years who I've had a minor thing for who have absolutely wreaked at the exact moment where I didn't want them to, but alas, I digress and must carry on!

There were also 2 rich boys in that class, and our teacher had recently become aware of that and has not ceased paying them out (pun intended). They're the type that don't bother to learn and just make things up when asked questions, and look incredibly stupid. You know the type, flash clothes, asymmetrical hair, it's gold. But to have the teacher lay into them is just pure gold.

What I really hate at uni is being kicked out of computer labs. We have really impoverished facilities at our university so there are never enough comps to go around. Anyway, school policy dictates that classes get preference over people on free time. So even when a class is like 5 people, the whole lab (20 or so computers) gets ordered to clear out. They say it's so classes don't get interrupted, but it's a load of crap, because nobody makes any noise in there anyway.

I had a 2 hour break (in which I had nothing to do) last week, as I couldn't use the computers, so I just walked around the campus outskirts out of sheer boredom, to places that are fenced off and people can't go and what not. Anyway, I covered the ENTIRE campus within 30 minutes, that's just embarrassing! How small is our campus??! The other university in our city is 4 suburbs big, whereas ours is just the size of one! I also took pictures on my phone to illustrate how much of a hole the campus is. However I have no idea how to transfer the stuff to my comp (if anyone has an LG camera phone without Wifi, infra red or blue tooth, please tell me a way that doesn't require a data cable).

That was also the same day that I had no sleep whatsoever before my earliest start, and my brain just died in the afternoon. I was selected to do a judgment on two opposing presentations in class, and I hadn't prepared any notes on the situation so I had to make it up on the fly. And boy, did I suck so very badly. I said all the stuff I needed to but I kept stumbling, backtracking, wasting time, flying off on tangents, it was humiliating. The class was congratulating me afterwards about how well I did, but it was all bittersweet, because I wanted to do really well according to my standards. And to think, I want to be a judge! Gahh! I seem to be having a lot of those moments lately.

If that wasn't the icing on the cake, I wrote a suggestive note to Lizzie McGuire girl and tomorrow will be the first time that I'll see her since then and I'm wondering about the possible consequences now (and knowing my mind, they're all negative). It'll be interesting to say the least.

Had a good convo with the other (don't worry, he'll blog soon, even if I have to poke his corpse with a stick to get him to do it), last week after his return from interstate. The thing about our city is that it's small and not much happens, however the city he went to is where all the people our age want to move to. I absolutely hate Sydney!! There's just too much hustle and bustle and there's just too much shit going on. Our youth pay out our city because nothing happens here, well I say go and fuck off to Sydney, we don't want you here, and we don't want things happening in our city!

Is it just me or did I just suddenly pick up a low opinion of women? I don't know. I'm out, have a nice day folks.

"Bring back the porn!!!"

Haha I apologise if you found the title offensive, but I heard this phrase and it's context just a few weeks back and I think it's absolutely riotous.

So here I am, early morning, in the library not doing anything. I had 4 hours sleep last night as I had to come up with and write out my presentation (which is due in 45 minutes). It's rumoured that Margaret Thatcher only slept 4 hours a night all the time. I think this is probably the reason why she looks the way she does, and why I currently resemble a craggy old hag.

I think my case is good, but what pisses me off is that since I was so damn tired when I finished the write up, I didn't proof it properly and now there's a grammatical error in my first bloody paragraph, for the whole class to see! I also must win at least 2 out of the 3 issues in my case, or it's all going to be pointless!! I could have just done no work, shown up and made a non legal argument and had the same result. I'm also really tired now so if something doesn't make any sense in this entry, you know what to blame it on.

But I'll be happy when it's over, because my partner and I have booked a camera for this weekend and we intend to do our interview then and edit it 2 days before it's due.

I haven't pulled an assessment related late night since college, because I wanted to get my act together in university, which I have done, but in instances where your work cannot go ahead until someone else finishes their piece, then you're pretty much guaranteed stress-town USA up until the last minute.

Why is the library so packed right now? I guess it is one of the great mysteries of life that will remain unsolved! HAHAH! I'm a little crazy right now so I don't exactly know if my ramblings will be coherent. Then again, doesn't a rambling imply lack of coherency? I don't knowwww!

However, with this thing being done today and my other thing not being done until the weekend, I think I can afford a gigantic sleep in tomorrow which I must say, I am looking forward to with extreme excitement (which hopefully won't keep me from going to sleep)!

I must say that until my new computer, I haven't really enjoyed online gaming in it's full capacity. However, with a broadband connection and good games, I am really enjoying pitting myself against other people from around the world. At the moment I have only been playing Battlefield 1942 and Swat 4 online and it's amazing. BF was insane as people were using advanced skills and I was getting the crap kicked through me every few minutes. But Swat 4 was awesome!! Since we were all human, the element of tactics and strategy went out the window, and it just became an insane typical first person shooter with advanced weaponry. I actually did quite well and made a mockery of even the old hands! I still should finish the single player mode before I adventure fully into what the online version has to offer.

I have also been thoroughly enjoying Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas! What an amazing game, and it's not just because of the absolute stupidity of the situation of the main character, but it really does feel like one is living in "da hood" and instills a sense of actually being in a big city and being isolated. Hehe the extremely ludicrous amounts of violence and profanity also raise the enjoyment level for me somewhat, too! There's just so much to do, what an amazing effort on behalf of Rockstar Games, I'd hate to think of how long it took to conceive the game from planning to production.

I really need to pee, I know, highly irrelevant but information none the less.

Is the influence of the individual such that it can really change the lives of strangers? Many television shows and movies make examples of this and in my current case in point is that of what's occurring right now. On the computers in the library, on my right is genteman, mature age, and on my left is a woman mature age too.

A little while back she sneezed and he said "bless you" to which she smiled and they smiled at each other and it seemed that they made a connection. Then I noticed the guy staring at her a little while she was doing some of her work. Is it that my existence of actually physically being between them stopping them from getting together?? Interesting!

Anyway, I've had enough for one day. Have a nice day people!!

"I heard Dick Van Dyke is coming back from the dead to star in it"

Ahh only an hour to get this entry out of the way before Lizzie McGuire! We also had our first spam comment, so I'm happy! Unfortunately I deleted it cause it made absolutely no sense to me.

The juice is worth the squeeze. Haha, how absolutely stupid yet profound in it's own little way. Hehe for those in the know, it's from Girl Next Door, which I just realised had a bit of a moral underpinning towards the end (which didn't involve elements of pornography).

Had an absolutely random day I have to say. Firstly there was not much sleep had last night so I was a little out of it to say the least. My legal theory class turned violent when people supporting some rights and others who don't support the same rights were engaged in heated debate. It was a classic. I wanted to go for the underdogs (cause they're the smart freaky LAN boys), but alas I couldn't muster up enough energy to put together a coherent argument in their favour. Damn that class, it's turning into a freakin' philosophy outlet, but I don't mind. It's different to what we normally do in other classes.

That brings me to my next point of annoyance at people who don't think outside the box. What irks me is that while we are sometimes (rarely) shown what elements constitute thinking outside of the box, but not how to do it, and why this not regular practice. This way innovation is really a tough issue and we get stuck in a frame of mind of, we like the way things are, which we all know is incredibly dangerous. Nobody questions anything and people become stuck in their mindsets, and the longer this continues, the harder it is to go back.

I was thinking about basic yet abstract concepts the other day. Numbers, the concept of more than one. How can children grasp this so easily? For very young children, they cannot see anything outside of the self. You are THEIR brother, THEIR sister, but they can't define what relation they are to you. It can't be visual, because blind people are aware of what the concept of 2 is. Why doesn't the concept of 2 get drawn into the self so that everything becomes 1 again? Interesting.

Fat women, what the hell is it about them that makes them so damn repulsive? Oh I know, it's the fat! Haha, no I don't mean to be terrible, but it's a law of sociology that people tend to hang out (or date) people that have roughly the same level of personal attractiveness. Attention is drawn to oneself when these norms are not adhered to. Case in point, there is this rather decent looking guy on campus who has this rather large girlfriend. And that's all cool and what not, I don't judge his taste in women. But EVERYONE (myself subconsciously included) just gives him looks of "what the hell are you doing" when they see them out together. Why is this? Attractive guys tend not to date fat girls. But we're trying to tear down these barriers of self image and all that, so why does such an example send the rest of us into a frenzy? Because we are all hypocrites.

Ahh my Legal Theory teacher caught me out terribly in the lecture today. As previously mentioned, I was a little zoned out today so of course my thoughts wondered from "notions of objectivity as defined by Critical Legal Theory scholars" to "I wonder how good that girl over there would be in bed?". Hahaha so there I was grinning like a goofy idiot, and my teacher kept giving me weird looks. This is disturbing as I sit in the back row in that lecture. Then later as I was in the Law School building she says "What's with all the little smiles and nods, are you off in your own little world or are you agreeing with what I'm saying?" so of course I lied and said it was about the content. Haha I hope she believed me or else she's going to think I have a thing for her and let's not go there.

Also managed to question my Torts teacher about my presentation and now the opposing counsel seems to have some idea of what she's going to do so I'm one stop closer to humiliating her in front of the whole class. I really shouldn't do that to a mature age student and mother who is a very nice person, but alas, "I will do what I must". Unfortunately I had to lie to her and say that I have no time spare on Wednesday to work together, as I spend a 4 HOUR BREAK with the other!

My journalism interview is going to go right down to the wire, it's going to be gold to see how it turns out!

Speaking of my other class for today, damn croatian women!! True, I only know 2 of them. But those 2 are drop dead sexy and it's just like the missionary girl effect!! Damn you Pavlov!

I also realised the importance of phrasing in that class when I said (about women's magazines) "that they prepare women for lives as housewives" to which the entire female class burst into riotous laughter, as I was meant to say "those magazines turn women into housewives via agenda setting", haha but alas it made me look like a bit of a mysoginist and I had to hang my head in shame. But 'twas also grand as I had amazing bouts of genius where even the teacher was saying "brilliantly put" about complex theoretical and practical concerns of the nature vs nurture debate. Also managed to shoot down someone's argument and her friends paid her out about it. Too bad she's a bit of a sexy one cause it doesn't make me look good!! Also discovered that Ass Boy actually has a brain!! He does all his work on time, and he has innovative discussion points in class. Haha, he'd be the perfect man bar the ass fetish thing! haha just a tiny minor imperfection that is! He also has really small feet for someone who is 6'4" or thereabouts and fairly muscular. My feet are bigger than his, and you know what that means!! Yesh, that my feet are bigger than his and thus, I require bigger shoes! Haha you sick minded people!

Ahh Lizzie McGuire girl, she's so damn different!! Today she showed up sporing corn-rows and usually stuff like that is an instant turn off, but I still wasn't deterred. I think I may have laughed at her for saying some thing like "that girl has a nose with hair in it" when she actually said "she has a nose and a head" and it wasn't very nice, but everyone else was laughing, I'm sorry! I'll make amends to her next time! I'm going to revert to the age old tradition of passing a note in class, how juvenile (yet awesome, cause I'm awesome)!

Have a nice day folks!!!

It's syphilis for the eyes!

Oh dear! How could Vesna not win Big Brother?! 'Tis a shocking day for all concerned I tell you!

Had the craziest drive of all time the other day. I remember talking about having to drive to school and back for a 9 and a half hour day. Well on my way home, I was so damn tired that I was starting to hallucinate and not just that, the inside of my car's windscreen is smudged for some reason so when lights hit the smudged bits, it just goes out of control. I was blinded for 95% of that entire drive. Yes, blinded by the light if you will. There were times I could not see a damn thing and I had to just guess where the road was and it was sheer insanity. Note to self, don't do that again. Hopefully the windscreen will be clean the next time I undertake a night drive.

Damn Journalism! Everything is meant to be written in one sentence paragraphs and now I can't stop doing them on MSN but in a much worse form.


How are you

this is really

not the best

way of


Is it?

Gotta sing the praises of our new cleaner. I have issues with having other people clean up the mess that we created, but this dude is awesome. He hails from Chile (where the women are Chilli...oh dear I need to stop this madness) and EVERYTHING is clean. And what's even better is that all my stuff is where I left it, instead of the last one who moved all my stuff. He's a more than competent genius!

Woohoo, Snickers and Mars are back on the shelves!!! But I still don't know if I'm going to buy one any time soon given the blackmail attempt.

Obese people should be banned from the movies. I forgot to mention this a while back, but the other and I were sitting next to a horribly obese family and the stench was just overwhelming. Yes, it did impact on my enjoyment of the movie, even the other was struggling to breathe through the horrible smell.

Also heard that Michelle Rodriguez is going to join the second season of Lost, and after seeing her in these last few eps of Lost this season, I am damn happy. HOW HOT DOES SHE LOOK THESE DAYS?! Insane I tell you. I'm also amazed cause I'd only seen her in her tough girl roles when she's all bulked up and no makeup and stuff and all trash talking, but yowza!

Damn the stress to hell. I have 2 assignments due in 2 weeks and both of them are highly suspect. My Obligations presentation could fall apart, and it all depends on what happens with my meeting tomorrow with opposing counsel. I can't really do anything till I meet her, so I am freaking out. Then there's my Journalism interview which is to be done next week. But my partner is an inept slacker and I can't do this on my own, it is physically impossible to do a camera interview with only 1 person!

Weirdness. I knew this guy in college (year above me) who I thought had it all together and was a high achiever. But this year I found out that he lost an awful lot of money in a failed business venture, he works 2 jobs and fits in 5 classes at university. He is so stressed all the time and I don't know how he copes. It's all going south for him and he has no idea what to do with his life and it paralyzes him. Strange.

Have a nice day folks. Yes there are still some blognotes in backlog!

The Procrastination Files

I don't like morning classes!!!

It was absolutely freezing this morning (seriously, there was SNOW everywhere)! And I didn't want to go to class, and now the brain is working a little slowly cause alas, I did come to uni and now I am waiting in the library until my next class.

My eyes are burning and I keep muddling my words up. Hopefully I won't have to pass judgment in the tutorial today or else I am going to seriously botch it hardcore, and since the assignment of judging is done totally randomly, I don't like my chances.

Big props to the other for allowing me to scam a fair portion of his hard drive for my personal enjoyment (but as he knows, it's for the general love of the GAME)! Muhahaha, in-joke there, sorry.

So what am I doing currently? Absolutely nothing. Since I forgot to bring my textbook, which I passively read on the weekend, I can't revise on the chapters which I cannot remember right now. So I've just decided to look up cases online in the class I just had. How very boring. It's really pointless since usually they just teach you a basically one sentence summary of cases, and you can apply that wherever you want.

I am so spaced out today. I must end this here. Have a nice day folks. Yes, yesh, tomorrow is going to be a grand sleep in day.

Home Life

Oh won't you please take me home??

As mentioned, here is a quick post from me! Ahhh so what's new? Absolutely nothing really. My parents have things to do tomorrow so it turns out that I must drive to and from uni myself. Lovely, this task must be accomplished with barely any sleep and in freezing, wet temperatures! Tough, but we'll see how I go.

Ahh France, it's such an awesome country. As I always say to the other when something France related comes up - "France, it's been so good to us". Haha, I want to move there one day! Granted, I don't speak or understand much of the language anymore, but I'll learn dammit!

What I find puzzling is Lizzie McGuire (the television show). Those in the know can tell you that it was a Disney show and that the show spanned from the end of 2k to mid 2k2. At the start Lizzie McGuire was just an average teenage girl looking to just get through High School and carve out a unique niche for herself. But as the first series finished up and she entered grade 8, she had suddenly developed into the antithesis of everything she wanted to be just a year earlier. She had become shallow, fashion conscious and boy chasing and slightly stupid. What kind of message does this send out to the poor young girls who watch this show? To sell out on all that you hope to be, on all their ideals and hopes? Let me guess "be individual, be a typical cheerleader girl and snag yourself a boyfriend".

The other has a gripe with the current method of teaching, and just that - the whole education system as it currently stands. I must say that the more I think about it, the more I'm inclined to agree. He says that they never teach you anything outside of what they WANT you to know. It doesn't matter if it's helpful (which most of the time it isn't) or if it's not. This is holding us back, and the current education paradigms are stupid and need to be abolished and a new way of learnings needs to be established. Let's face it, the current system doesn't work, just take a look around the world. People aren't getting what they want from life. The few will always triumph over the many and that's not right at all.

I hate pretentious little shits, haha not literally, but you know what I mean, I hope. I met a friend of a friend last week who happens to be in one of my tutes and she was saying how she's such a nerd and she owns all the complete books from our readings (our readings are only a select few chapters from said books). These morons are like 20 something years old, working and attending uni and they think they are top shit and act like they're in their mid 30's or something like that. What pissed me off most about this girl was that despite all her claims, she turns out to be totally pretentious and nobody pays attention to what she says in class.

Yes, I am a nihilist.

Also had a terrible waking dream in that very class this week. Lizzie McGuire (the girl) was telling a story about her work (she works in some sort of food place) and the teacher asked where she worked and she was about to say, when the girls on the other side of class interrupted and the whole point was dropped!! SHIT! Like 1 second from sheer awesomeness, it's all over!!

What's wrong with the world?! Cat Davies left Hot Source!! NOO! Now I have nothing to watch in the afternoons, which I guess means more work, hooray!

Goddamn tech support!!! I was having a problem with my DVD Drive (which turned out to be related to the actual DVD, not even the drive), and the bloody moron (it should be called tech hinderance) instructed me to do something which messed up my bios!! She honestly had no idea what the hell she was doing. She sounded like an Indian woman (judging from the heavy accent), and I know I shouldn't rag on immigrants, but gahh, these call centres packed with ethnic people is a REALLY bad idea. I spent 2 hours on the phone trying to fix the problem!! In the end she gave me some spiel about the company not being liable and then it was over. 5 minutes after being left to my own devices, I fixed the problem, sheeeit. That's 2 hours of my life I'll never get back! And I was planning to study this afternoon too! What made it a crazy experience was that she was saying I sounded really mature on the phone and it made me feel really uncomfortable. Small talk should be banned.

Last night I devised a novel way of killing someone. If you've ever gone to take a McLeak at night and didn't want to turn the lights on for fear of blinding yourself and not being able to go back to sleep (don't worry, there's enough light reflecting off the moon to see), you'll notice that when you pull your pants down, there are a few sparks of static. So the plan is to pump the bathroom full of air freshener (it contains flammable material) or even just spray their pants with deoderant and then get then when they go to the bathroom, KABLAMO!!! Think about how awesome it would be (even if there isn't an explosion, the flame should burn quite nicely especially in areas that your pants cover hehe)

There is a band comp at uni and I'm wondering whether to watch it or not. The ex-hoe is going to be there and I really don't want to see her, but I want to see if those bands are any good. The other and I plan on winning that comp because we're damn awesome.

Damn, this was huge! I'm sorry.

Have a nice day folks!

Need a little time to wake up??!

Good to see that the other has returned to the blogging world in such scarily gigantic post fashion! How freaky it is that he mentioned Hendrix and I am currently listening to him (incidentally enough, covering Bob Dylan's All Along The Watchtower)!

Well due to the sparse times when I'm actually at home and in a lucid enough frame of mind, I have decided for those policy reasons to post more, but they are going to be much shorter entries. Hopefully this decision won't affect the "quality" of the blog! It also means that I'm going to posting random crap up here which has little or no bearing on anyone's life (not even my own)!

I found out that (im)mature student guy from my last entry is a father of 4! The kids age from 11-24!! HE BARELY LOOKS IN HIS 40'S! HE EVEN ADMITTED THAT HE'S SOMEWHERE IN HIS 40's!! WHAT THE HELL?! Even the teacher was freaked out and saying "I didn't expect you to be a father?!"

Then there was another instance where another mature age student who I thought would be a father turns out to have no children! It's an insane world folks, and it's getting crazier by the second.

What really puzzles me is when people get really personal in tutorials. They start rambling off personal info about themselves that nobody else really cares about it. Case in point: today some girl was talking about how her parents had no time for her as a child and she yearned to be normal. This drew cries of "awww" from my predominantly female classmates. Like seriously?! As if I'm about to get up and go "why I'd like to murder all of you, of course!"?!

Lizzie McGuire (the tv show) is back! Yay! Unfortunately I've seen every episode twice but that's not going to stop me from enjoying the good old days. Kyo are awesome. For those not in the know, they are a French rock group. I don't understand the lyrics but their songs on a visceral level sound absolutely awesome, even the other says they sound good.

I'll tell you what a massive pet peeve of mine is: teachers who don't put up lecture notes on the internet until 2 minutes before class, or not at all! In those instances one has to take down notes like a crazy bastard and not hear a damn word of what the hell the teacher has to say. Others just sit there and print the notes out later, but that also means you're just pointlessly sitting there. It also results in me having to use bloody uni print credit for those notes! Money which could be better spent on my own personal enjoyment!

I'm not a professional widow, but I'll learn...Have a nice day folks.

Getchoo Ah Ha!!

I am not even going to bother trying to excuse my absense, so here goes this one. I just read over my first post on this blog, and realised that a lot has changed, and some of it needs to come back. So I will try to change back some of the things that were right. On that note, I am going to blog more often, and also try to write more in the way I used to. Also it looks like I am going have a bit more time on my hands to do the things I need to do (Not like I didn't have the time, I just have more). Time changes everything, and nothing can change it. One movie that depicts this in the right way, it has to be Irreversable, its a French movie but I swear it shows it like it should be. So hold on to what you have now, and as long as you can, before the time ticks by, just like a bomb does, and changes everything you are acostomed to.

Is life fair?? Well almost anyone who has been around for a while knows the stark truth, its not and there is nothing we can do about it. As long as you accept the truth, you will not have a problem with it. Its a shame that most people who I consider to be the gods, have all died young, and for me way too young (But I am sure that they did everything that they intended to do, or atleast the main aspects, else they would not be my gods). Just watched the Jimi Hendrix autobiography, the man is a legend, and no man can deny that. My quote for the day is hence, "Who the fuck is Bob Dylan" (His manager asks him). Had an awesome time watching it with a few friends of mine (musically influenced, like yours truly). Sit back relax, make a big fuss about a method of playing a funky lick, and later pick up the guitars, and let the inner side out.

I also over the last period of time have not paid enough attention to "my piece of wood with those 6 strings" and I am sorry to it, and can't feel guilty enough. But the good news is that the tunes are starting to flow again. Two things I have realised in the last week. Firstly, I haven't been using my talents properly, been trying to write too many chord based very soft songs. That is not what I am about, but thats what I have been doing for the last while, and I apologize to myself, and the gods for that. And secondly, that I am able to do a lot more with this instrument, than I usually think I can. I have been practicing my stuff, and realised that there are complicated things that I usually chose not to play, but I can play them quite easily, and damn I plan to. Someday, I hope to give you all an insight on what I am talking about.

The key word is "weezer". Does it get any better than this?? Weezer IS my favorite band. I know I say different bands are my favorie, but make no mistake, this is absolutely my no 1 spot band, and they have been for a while, but now it is again amplified to the point, that I would rather listen to them than do anything else in the world. Angry nerd rock?? Call it what you will, but you will never convince me that it gets any better than this. At this point of the day I am thinking of 2 songs especially "The world has turned" and "Peace". The world has turned is exactly how I am feeling these days, and when i reherd it, I was blown away by the true emotions that pour out of the chords, and Rivers's voice. And "peace" is exactly what I am hoping that I will find some point of time. Give it a listen, and you will know what I am taking out. At 1:40 in the morning, Knaves was thinking exactly what Rivers was expressing. Also on that note, the new album "Make Believe" is truely awesome. I wasnt sure if it would as good as "Pinkerton" or "The Blue Album" (By the way, the blue album is actuall a self titled album, but its known as the bluw album, so live with it) but after putting it in the discman, it just simply hasn't come out.

A couple of weeks ago, I read of the wall of my friends place, that when success comes, there is always more to follow. And this got me thinking, its true, when your lucks good things do seem to work out the way you expected it to, or hoped to. Unfortunately, it looks like my luck is gone, its no where to be found. Firstly, I land up single again (Very possible all my fault, i've just been in limbo for a while (as you can see from my long absense) and just quite simple let it slide), and secondly all the little things doesnt seem to be coming together like I think they will (For example, I get an xbox game in the mail, insted of a ps2 one, or the fact that my headphones, just snapped in the middle, by mistake, or the ball of my earing falling off, take your pick). I hope my bad luck doesn't stick around for a while, but hey what happens happens, lets make the most of it. (Excuse me, while I kiss the sky. In other words, I'll be back and finish this). Haha I just had company while I was outside, and they were all kangaroos, sometimes they can be the best company. Back to matters.

Its funny, how one choice, or mistake can change life upside down. And guess what else, I make a mistake, and then go on to make more mistakes on that, that really didnt help thigs out, but what can one do? Everyones heard of guilty of association, but what is more sad is that poeple stop speaking to you, because you dont associate with the people they know the same way. I have been blocked by a person I used to talk to often on msn recently, and that put things into perspective. Am I happy with the changes, no, but we all deal with that. As I said time changes everything.

I was talking to my x girlfriend 3 or so weeks ago, and she had two interesting things to say. Firstly she said that my spelling had gotten a lot better, which I laughed at. I am a person that never cared too much about spelling, but I guess uni did some good for me I guess. And secondly she was un happy with me growing my hair, at which I laughed a bit louder (She reckons that I look sexier with my shorter hair, now 2 other people have told me that, so I will take their word of it)! I was loving the long hair, untill about a week and a half ago when it was getting in my eyes. Now I guess she will be happier that its back to its normal spikey hair. Its good to have it back to how I like it. Haha except my firend Jay, is irritated with my hair cut, haha (I look more punk than rock he says).

There is so much more that I planed on talking about, but I think I will stop here. I am extremely tired, and the comfort of my bed sounds good as of now. So I will leave you with a few lyrics, and remember, enjoy what you have for as long as you got.

Perfect Situation - Weezer (Make Believe)

What's the deal with my brain?
Why am I so obviously insane?
In a perfect situation
I led love down the drain

There's the pitch, slow and straight
All I have to do is swing and I'm a hero
But I'm a zero

Hungry nights once again
Now it's getting unbelievable
Cause I could not have it better
But I just can't get no play

From the girls all around
As they search the night
For someone to hold on to
And just pass through


Get your hands off the girl
Can't you see that she belongs to me?
And I don't appreciate this
Excess company

Though I can't satisfy
All the needs she has
And so she starts to wander
Can you blame her?


Tell me there's a logic out there
Leading me to better prepare
For the day that something really special might come

Tell me there's some hope for me
I don't want to be lonely
For the rest of my days on the earth

4 to the floor, I was sure...

I apologise that it's been so long since my last past, but I have been terribly lazy, there's no other reason so again, I am so very sorry! Have no fear, I shall also be getting the other to blog ASAP.

Not a lot has been going on, but luckily I have compiled a few blog notes when things have happened in order to keep the rest of you entertained.

I must again sing the praises (delicious pun) of Brooke Fraser! She's just a phenomenon. I wish more people had heard of her but it doesn't matter because she's going to be the next big thing in music.

I have also come to a discovery. That Missionary Girl is the spitting image of television presenter and former model Erika Heynatz! No wonder she's so damn sexy in a totally immoral way! There was also a rather funny moment when she walked into a class and all the guys stopped talking for a slight fraction of a second and all looked at her. Then one of the mature age students commented "she's quite the salacious one" and I just burst into a fit of laughter. I also came to realise that this same dude is so very jaded and cynical. He pays out EVERYTHING and EVERYONE, and it's highly disturbing. Some girl coughed softly and he said "what a pathetic cough" and it just descended into primary school immaturity and I was shocked that this could come from a mature age student who was married! What kind of woman could put up with that?!

I don't know if anyone has seen the new Continental food ads with Mena Suvari but they are absolutely priceless! The ad consists of Mena Suvari all dolled up having dinner with this rather unattractive, overweight Australian guy and he's proceeding to dump her over this meal. The next cut is of her crying hysterically and I just thought the whole idea was damn hell-arious.

One of the FUNNIEST episodes of my life occurred last week. The other was having lunch with a friend when I happened upon them. We started talking about Oportos and I eventually managed to change the subject to the absolutely gorgeous manager who works there (who also probably thinks that I only go there to perve rather than to eat). Then the friend goes "Is her name by chance Clare Metcalf?" and my mouth just dropped open and I laughed like a maniac. This is indeed her name and it turns out that a lot of guys on campus know of her and engage in the same umm "spectator/consumer" activity when they go there. So she's a cult hero and doesn't even know it, absolutely golden. What were the odds of such a coincidence coming into fruition?!

There was also another freaky coincidence on Thursday when I found out some interesting info. A few weeks back, after learning Lizzie McGuire girl's real name, I decided to google her (yes I know, I have no life) and I came across some X-Files fanfics. I just thought that it was a coincidence but then in the lecture on Thursday she admitted to being a gigantic fan of the X-Files when it hit me that it was HER that had written the fan fics (the name on the page wasn't just a first name match, it was a full name match). Her writing style is dodgy, and highly juvenile (well then again it was from her early high school days) but her personal stuff on the page was very eccentric and I enjoyed reading it a lot. Being a big fan of the show myself, I think I may have something to break the ice with, especially since we have some group activities in class next week.

I've also noticed that I'm getting a lot of bad moods at uni for no particular reason. They just come and go and I cannot explain it which is very weird.

Roundabouts at peak hour are actually quite fun. The general rule of course is to give way to your right. So all you have to do is look in that direction and when there's an opening in the traffic, you just fly. You also can't go slowly, lest the traffic behind you catches up, but nothing beats the feeling of the G Forces going around them!

And finally! Yesh, I got the internet connection sharing working on the network!! Huzzah!!! I am a genius! I also discovered that for some reason my net is working faster on the older computer now than it ever did even though it has to go through the gateway of the new comp! How strange. What a strange world we live in after all.

Have a nice day folks.

It's so big!!!

Haha, just referring to my new monitor which is scaring me cause everything is so damn huge. It's not bad because some readings are now exclusively online for university and it doesn't hurt so much to read small text off a screen. It's a 17" flatscreen and now going to the damn uni monitors which are 14-15" is just a terrible pain in the ass.

"Well it depends on whether the person is getting any oral stimulation...OH OH I meant Aural, sorry that was a big mistake" - Tutor of one of my classes. Absolutely hell-arious methinks.

Had an interesting day to say the least. Now have a morning class on Mondays. It's a tute for Legal Theory and I was dreading it as soon as I showed up because everyone seemed to be mature age and that they were all going to crap on like many of them do. However, our tutor was brilliant and actually engaged the class on the topic of Marxism and it inspired healthy debate, and free ideas and I was so damn happy. That's the way tutorials should be, a free discussion on a given topic. I've never been so interested in a topic before, and for it to be about such a gigantic concept like Marxism, it's just amazing.

Then a tutorial for another class. The Lizzie McGuire tute as I call it. The class is bearable for 2 reasons. 1) Lizzie McGuire girl is utterly entertaining. 2) There is also a ridiculously attractive girl in the class. Other than that it is utterly infuriating because there are several dominant personalities who ABSOLUTELY have to argue about every point with a distinct lack of empricism in their remarks and also think they are right just because it is them saying it. I decided to not annihilate them because I don't want to come off looking like a total bastard in front of Lizzie McGuire, who I must find a way to woo even though there may be extenuating circumstances which shall not be discussed in any detail....!

Teachers. They're not supposed to be hot. The closest I've ever come was a decent looking tutor last year. While waiting for a class, I peered into the room to find an absolute BABE teaching Japanese. This got me thinking. Does having an attractive teacher make learning easier or is it a distraction? I can't answer this question because I've never been able to procure myself a hot teacher (in a class that I was actually apart of). I'm guessing here, but I don't think we can oversimplify this. It depends on the nature of the subject being taught. Let's say it was French, I'd like to learn it again and if I had a hot teacher, I would probably be able to pick it up much faster and make an effort to learn it. However, if it was something like Chinese (which is an impossible language for a native English speaker of 20 years, and I have no reason for wanting to learn it), then I think I would find the teacher's attractiveness a distraction to justify not learning. Think about it!

That's it for today folks. Have a nice day.

Special Edition - Monster Sized - For Your Viewing Pleasure!

I warned you! I would be back, and here it is. I'm aiming to make this a gigantic entry, maybe not the biggest of all time, but let's see where we end up shall we?

It is unfortunately the end of an era. This will be my last post...from this computer! Haha, almost had you going there. But we have procured ourselves a new computer which is an absolute beast and it shall be taking over primary computing duties from this one, tomorrow. This comp however, will still get plenty of use as we are networking it with the beast so all is good.

The other has hurt his back so my sympathy goes out to him. The injury occurred while at a pub, so one can only guess exactly what transpired that night! Hopefully he shall recover soon.

You know what I secretly get a kick out of? Catching guys checking girls out in really unsubtle ways. It's usually when I'm in a special 2-shot angle (for those not down with journalism or camera usage info, a two shot is like a T junction. I would be at the bottom vertical point and the two other people would be at opposite ends of the horizontal plane). Anyway, they usually walk towards each other and I'm out of the picture and then as they pass each other, the guy sneaks a big BIG BIG glance at her chest and her ass in one smooth motion! Then he thinks he's gotten away with it, smirks a little and keeps going! But I see all. What really gets to me is that even when they TRY to be smart about it, they just can't help it, the poor lads. Quite hell-arious methinks. Unfortunately I've been caught out in that situation myself various times, so have no fear, I'm not a hypocrite, I'm self-reflective!

Uni = crap! I hate walking around on days when I have nothing to do whatsoever! The tutes didn't help me feel any better either. Sure, I remain unchallenged and in my first week of tutes I kept my mouth shut so I could observe who I needed to destroy next week in front of everyone. I would gain so much satisfaction from just grabbing a sledgehammer and going to work on people's faces sometimes. Hopefully I'll feel better as the semester goes on.

Damn the Swiss!! My folks brought back kilos of chocolate and it's ALL good. Even their white chocolate is good! And that's saying something coming from me, cause I cannot stand white chocolate at all, but this stuff is pure gold.

I have a friend who I used to be close to many years back. But then we gradually drifted apart and I went a few years without seeing him. He's only come back to the outer fringes of my life in this past year and a few days ago I found out that he underwent surgery for testicular cancer. At first I was indifferent, but now I can't sleep.

I love it when people give directions to their place for the first time. This is mostly due to them being able to speak like a local from their area and give obscure clues. "Head left 30 paces, jump in the car, the white rabbit shall lead you 3km East of where the sun sets, a man shall stop you, the password is 'don't eat clear objects' and he shall pass you a note, you must then give this note to the Queen and she shall lead you the rest of the only have 2 hours". That's slightly exaggerated (operative word being SLIGHTLY)! So you can just imagine what I mean!

My parents also bought me the Amel cd!! WOOHOO! I still haven't had time to give it a proper listen as of yet, but I assure you, I will and I shall rip it in all it's 256k glory!

If people were allowed to live forever, and we could do whatever we want, do you think all people would eventually opt to die? The non-suicidal ones I mean. Surely a day would come where one would have accomplished all they wanted to accomplish, or even done everything there possibly is to do and in a spurious way it shows that death is a natural part of life?

I've reached a conclusion. Alonso is the Devil!! All Fernandos are! It's the only possible way he can be winning the season so far and Raikkonen is having such terrible luck! My goal is to destroy him and all Fernandos and peace can again reign! He cannot win this season!!! Schumacher is still in with a chance mind you, so let's not discount him just yet.

You may remember a reference to Lizzie McGuire girl in one of my classes last year who tripped over a chair in front of a lecture room full of people, in one of my entries. Well she's in a tute for one of my classes and she's just crazy. Quick talking, full of random pointless information. Fun and quirky. She's a self confessed geek! Even has a morbid sense of humour which she apologised for. I must talk to this woman and find out more! However, I did find out that she is from the second most pretentious private school in the city so I am slightly intimidated to say the least.

It was also in that same tute that I walked in and was surrounded by women! Unfortunately Lizzie McGuire was the only looker among them but (un)thankfully Mister Man Hoe showed up. I also referenced this guy a few blog entries back. He was the one affectionately labelled by me as "ass boy". He also happens to be the best looking guy of our particular age group. You should have seen my face when he sat right next to me!! I couldn't stop thinking of ass, and what the hell this guy has been up to. Don't worry, I kept my distance thank you!

Being a 3rd year, and most of the time being surrounded by 3rd years, we have devised a way of spotting the first years. They're the only ones who actually dress up for uni even though they should have realised after their first day that nobody gives a stuff what you wear. Most people don't even bother changing out of their sleeping clothes for some classes! Poor fools.

I must kill my rear neighbour. He put up a new fence which is this crazy colourbond steelish stuff. It's like bloody 10 feet high! No joke! It looks so out of place considering we still have a normal fence on the other 2 sides. It's a gigantic fortress wall I tell you! It would stop a tank. I will try to take a pic to post on here. The rear neighbour is a big guy so I must think about an ingenious way of killing him which won't result in him falling on top of me.

I'd like to debate the merits of Rob Thomas' Lonely No More! Does that backing even constitute music?! It's just random noises put together in a semi-coherent rhythm!

Last point to make. PLEASE listen to Brooke Fraser! I hadn't heard of her until I saw her on Spicks And Specks. She's a New Zealand singer song writer who plays guitar and piano and she's amazing. Just listen to Arithmetic, it's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard and also contains one of the best piano hooks of all time!

Alas, our time has come to an end and I must watch some tv. I hope you enjoyed this entry! Hopefully my next one won't be too far away. Have a nice day folks!

Nobody can ever hear me call

I apologise for the lengthy delay of this post but I have been particularly busy with university matters (ie study). This post shall also be fairly short as I am at university after an early morning class and I have nothing to do until my next class. The library is empty on my level. It's quite scary. My blog notes are also on my comp at home, so I don't know what the hell to talk about. But I promise that my next post will be gigantic as I have a massive backlog of blog notes to get through and satisfaction is guaranteed (or your money back).

I'm paranoid!! Not in the delightful Ozzy Osbourne way (delicious pop culture reference for those in the know), but I honestly think that there is someone behind me watching me type and I keep turning around but there's no body there! I'm quite worried to say the least.

Hmm, law of obligations isn't actually a bad class. Dare I say that it's actually interesting me to the point of potentially wanting to take it up when I go into practice. But where would the fun be in that? Damned if I know!

Haha, some guy was coming down the hallway and he looked like he was coming in this direction then all of a sudden he just veered off the back end of this level. Am I that disagreeable?!

I am currently listening to Oasis' "What's The Story (Morning Glory)" and damn I just love this song. Low on skill yesh, but high on awesomeness. More bang for your buck I say.

The other has said he will blog but since becoming the insane gamer that he now is, I doubt that will ever come into fruition! One must see his room (now called Death Trap by Fire Version 2.0) in order to understand. There is room for the bed to actually live in. Everything else is gaming related. Power cables are the order of the day, as are extension wires and power outlets, it's awesome. It's also highly illegal at our university, but nobody knows which makes it so damn awesome as it means more gaming for him!

Must say that we're currently enjoying Pro Evolution Soccer 4 (I believe that's the title) as the realism is quite scary. FIFA was quite arcadish in approach, but this is sheer brilliance. Two awesome examples from yesterday: I took a potshot from outside the box and his keeper dove and deflected it to Ronaldo who was outside the box and he nailed a perfect shot. Then the other as the freakin Czech Republic (of all teams) beat Real Madrid 3-2 in stoppage time with a brilliant half field run and just chipping it over my keeper at the last possible second and just making it below the crossbar. It was ballet on cleats I tell you.

I need to buy another jacket that's warm that I can wear most days because my heavy jacket is made out of this funky material which traps in all heat and if you're wearing any alcohol based hygiene products, they just go all funky and you start wreaking up the place which is quite terrible to say the least.

Alas, I am tired so I'm going to stop this right here. But have no fear. My next entry shall be some time soon and you shall be pleased. Have a nice day.

The sky is falling and the only way to go is up...

Ahhh first week of uni isn't so bad. With no tutorials this week, I have gigantic breaks today and tomorrow, which allows me time to come back home, eat and sleep and refreshed to make it back to my late afternoon class. Morning classes aren't actually that bad anymore since I'm trying to sleep at 11:30pm each night and get into a half decent routine.

It also looks like the Monday 4 hour break has now moved to Wednesday so the other and I will be making that our new day of reckoning. It turns out that my "flu" was actually considerably worse than originally thought, so now I am on some good ol' meds and I am getting better slowly.

Damn uni! That's the problem with first week, cause you know things are going to go downhill quite fast. I have 2 classes that have 2 lectures a week, so that means 6 lectures a week, not counting tutes so that's 10 classes as opposed to most other people's 8 classes.

So what's up for this semester? Continuation of Legal Theory (it's a year long), Journalism, Torts/Law of Obligations and Media Audiences. It's great to have a communications class again, I'd forgotten how slack that faculty is.

Stupid weather, it's cold in the morning and sunny in the afternoons! Of course, it's still cold but it's much too warm to wear warm clothing so it's just not nice!

Had a blast on Sunday afternoon with Les Femme Anomaly. Just hung out and shot the breeze. Almost had a Meet The Parents moment when her father almost directed me to drive over her mother's box of flowers which she had just collected from her garden. I was barely a mm from crushing the box underneath my tyres. Luckily tragedy was averted due to my reflexes and let's never speak of this again! Oh why can't this semester be over already?! Uni = crap! I think I'm gonna get a bit more sleep before Torts. It also looks like the computer purchase is going to be negotiated with an mp3 player too so I am sitting pretty.

Have a nice day folks!

"The following takes place between 8am and 11am..."

Judging from the title of this entry, you can probably tell that I had my own 24/Jack Bauer moment today. It really was one of the craziest days of my life. Let me continue...

I was told that my parents had tentatively booked a flight back into town at 3:30pm. Knowing this, I had gone to sleep at 5am, but lo and behold, I was awoken by a call at 8am from my brother telling me that they got a morning flight and that I had to make my way to the airport ASAP.

After 3 hours of broken sleep, my brain was not functioning as it usually does, so I just decided to minimalise. I brushed my teeth, got changed and downed a can of Red Bull: MISTAKE! A can of Red Bull right after brushing one's teeth is something like drinking liquified rotting meat, if that's possible! However, the sheer disgust woke me up and I went out to the car. It was as soon as I let the car warm up that I realised that I needed petrol if I wanted to make it all the way out the airport and back. I headed down to the petrol station only to be confronted with a HUGE QUEUE! What the hell?! What are all these people doing up so early on a Saturday morning?! It took me 10 minutes to actually work my way over to the pump. After I paid I glanced at my watch and saw that I had 5 minutes until their plane arrived.

Ahh I should have taken some panadol for my flu symptoms in order to make it a true Jack Bauer moment.

Anyway, I got on to the main road and was then stuck behind slow moving traffic!! I live on the West side of town (big ups to mah Westsideeee peeps, haha I'm so sorry, I'll never do that again!), and the airport is on the absolute extreme East side. I did what I had to do. I drove like a man possessed. The roads were so bloody packed, it made no sense! I drove the way I do for things like video games, cutting off cars, reverse shunting, speeding UP blind hills. I figured that since I now have my full licence, that I can be given a bit more leeway if I get busted doing something highly illegal.

I arrived at the airport 10 minutes late, but luckily my parents had only just gotten off the plane, and it was all good. And I mean ALL GOOD. I walked up to my parents and this HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT girl was eyeing me and smiling at me the whole time. How could this be happening? I looked like a crack whore reject with the lack of sleep, and my parents were there. Why does this always happen when they're around?! It's to ensure that I cannot reciprocate in any way, damn this planet! I brought the car around to make our way out of the airport and I saw her again going through the pedestrian crossing and she was checking me out again!! Ahhhh, crazy day I say.

We got home and I had breakfast and then I slept till 5:30pm! If only I was a clubber *sigh*!

So there was my insane 24 moment. TICK TOCK TICK TOCK. (Even though the 24 clock is digital...).

If you'll excuse me, I have some time booked for les femme anomaly this afternoon and I must get my beauty sleep. I've been dying to wear my new winter outfit which I bought before my folks left, which I haven't worn at all, and I'll be damned if I'm going to waste 200 bucks on awesome clothes that don't get worn! Have a nice day folks.

Oh, it's on for REAL cause I'm Rick James, bitch!!

Hahaha sorry, in-joke referenced for the title of this blog! So yes, the other was at my house for the past 2 weeks and a great time was had. We watched many a movie courtesy of the other's huge hard drive and our university's network. My personal favourite was probably 28 Days Later. It was bloody brilliant. Cillian Murphy is actually a gifted actor, and I hope he makes it big in America now after Batman Begins. I thought it was a horror movie, but it actually turned out to be a very human drama and suspenseful thriller. A must see if you ask me.

We also managed to watch the entire latest series of 24 (which has only just begun in Australia), over the course of 3 calendar days and dare I say that it's the best television show I've ever watched. The last series was such a disappointment, but even with no Elisha Cuthbert this time around, the series was a sheer delight to watch. There were also many a hot woman in the series to keep me occupied. We've also reached the conclusion that Jack Bauer is insane and he knows too much. I'm telling you, nobody can function at such an elite level for more than 2 minutes, let alone 24 hours!

Best quotes for the entire time were from Chappelle's Show - "I'm Rick James, Bitch". Which led the other to say to me "do you know who you look like?" to which I replied "who" and he said "Rick James, Bitch" and we collapsed on the floor laughing. Come to think of it, a lot of the time was spent in spontaneous bouts of laughter! I'm putting it down to the long hours of movies, gaming and food consumption and hardcore sleep deprivation.

The other has decided to throw in his Need For Speed Underground 2 towel ever since he purchased Gran Turismo 3 and had to actually learn how to drive a car that behaves realistically (as opposed to NFS, where cars can turn 90 degrees going 240 kilometres an hour). But his progress came along quite nicely and was able to eventually handle the F1 car which we won (even though the F1 is the easiest car to drive). But kudos to him anyway!

It also resulted in the funniest quote from the other - "I like it when I brake and the car slows down"! Pure hilarity I tells you.

The late nights/early mornings (depending on the way you look at it) also resulted in watching obscure couple competitions on the E! channel and paying out Kimi Raikkonen by impersonating his accent and saying all sorts of weird things.

We also managed to see Fantastic Four and War Of The Worlds on the same day (thank God for cheap Tuesdays). I was quite pleased that they didn't manage to totally butcher WOTW, but it was a total rush job. The Devilishly Concocted team of Dakota Fanning and Tom Cruise were probably the main factors in this movie being so very mediocre. Fantastic Four on the other hand was a delight to watch, and Jessica Alba in her underwear for 4 seconds was totally worth the price of the admission! Hahaha. The other and I then had to catch a bus using this new "flexibus" system at 11:30 at night from the biggest crime blackspot in our whole city. We didn't understand the new system, and if the bus didn't arrive, or if we went to the wrong platform, we'd have to walk home a good 12kms in below zero temperatures. Luckily the bus came, and since nobody else was on it, under the new system the bus stopped at my stop first, as opposed to it's usual last stop.

Ahhh so school next week! It should be good to see my old friends again. I shall blog again soon. Have a nice day folks.
