Sometimes It's Over Quicker Than You Thought

I know I said I'd do a Christmas rant in this post but I have no time so I'll save that for the next one! I did something I've been wanting to do for a long time. I finally learned how to play poker! Not only that, I'm pretty damn decent, I'm so happy!! I'm getting obsessed, watching vids on youtube, constant playing online, it's highly addictive, even without the betting. There are so many psychological elements present and the strategy is so involving, I highly enjoy it.

My new years plans? Sit at home alone. Great. Have a nice day folks!

Feel The (Wii) Pain!

I played a Nintendo Wii for several hours yesterday, and right now I am in several worlds of pain. I'm just sore as hell, and I still have to keep guitar practice up so it's painful, but I love it, it brings me closer to my guitar.

As mentioned previously, I am now playing with Dunlop Jazz III picks and let me just say they are the best picks ever made, bar none! Nothing compares, they do anything with minimal effort, it's gorgeous.

I saw Enchanted today, which I thought was terrible, but then I realised maybe it was a parable, because maybe I was watching it with a "real world" mentality (those who have seen the movie will know what I mean), and in that way it may come off as being deeper upon further inspection. Amy Adams is also incredibly attractive, there's something else about her that just makes her so watchable but I have no idea what it is.

I hate our plumbing. Well upstairs at least. For a while know mould has been building up around the sinkholes, and today when I turned on the tap on the sink, water backed up through the shower sink. I won't even tell you what happened when I flushed the toilet! What's even worse is that since it happened at this time of year, it can't be fixed till the 2nd of Jan, which means I have to use the downstairs bathroom in the mean time, hooray! Heading interstate for a while on the 2nd too, which should be fun.

I'll have a spiel about christmas for my next post. It was something one of my friends said that got me hip to it. Anyhow, have fun folks!

Her Ugliness Was Flawless

Been a while I know! But I haven't been doing much. I hired 22 DVD's last week and I watched them ALL. I feel incredibly freaked out, cause some of that time I didn't have a decent amount of sleep and the movies sometimes took on a life of their own. During Apocalypse Now Redux I thought Marlon Brando was talking to me and not Martin Sheen. Freaked me out I tell you.

Pick of the bunch? 21 Grams, The Departed and Mystic River. All excellently acted dramas. Some of the other stuff was incredibly overrated.

I have some more movies to rent sometime soon, but you can bet it won't be as much as this time!

Went shopping today for some birthday presents and sale items for me. Bought 2 Dunlop Jazz III Picks. Feel so good, they're firm but light so that they cut through strings nicely. Unfortunately Mini Matons and my beloved Martin signature John Mayer guitar are sold. However, I did play a Mini Maton 12 string which felt and sounded AWESOME, and was rather cheap too. Bought some DVD's that I've been meaning to get for a while, but there are a few more to go.

Also bought a birthday present for a friend, which cost a fair bit of dosh but it's good so hopefully they'll like it. It was strange though, despite it being a weekday, there were a massive amount of people there and buying up like crazy, and I felt incredibly sick with all the capitalism and guilt free spending going on. Some people don't think. Then I realised I was a hypocrite, and that wasn't good.

I had a 25th hour moment. As those who have seen the movie know, Edward Norton's character goes on a massive 4-5 minute rant about the people of New York. At the end he realises that the kindness and friendliess of the people is going to help him survive prison. I live my rant everyday. Today I had good moments and it was odd but entertaining and exciting.

Next week should be interesting to say the least. I finally graduated, so I'm happy with that. Too bad my worries never stopped.

The other is still overseas and as such haven't heard much from him.

Think I'm going to get some practice in then play a game or something! Talk later folks.

I can't see which way I'm going

I'm in dire need of a shower and a shave. I look homeless. Haha pretty soon I will be come to think of it!

I also need to cut my nails!

Oh my chords are toooooo good! I don't know why I didn't update before, I learned James Morrison's You Give Me Something a long time ago now, and I still remember the Cornell goodness. I also picked up the annoying chorus part of Eric Clapton's Change The World.

Interstate on Sun or Mon but should be back soon after.

Oh how some things make sense to some to the point where it becomes second nature, but to others it is an entirely foreign concept. Right now I have a strong sense of the latter.

More on that later.

I'm going to play guitar and engage in more exercises to prove my own ineptitude. Have a nice day folks!

I've got nothing, and it's all looking downhill from here.

There are jellyfish prints on my toilet paper. How weird is that? I wonder what the hell the designers of that print were thinking when they came up with that?

Things don't make a lot of sense lately. I overslept like crazy today! Grand tales, grand tales I say.
