Blinded by the darkness

Yes I know! The weekend passed and I did not blog. I also did not update the JRL.

However, I shall make amends for that soon. The JRL update shall come later. For now, you just have to be satisfied with the following!

So Google recently caved into a Court's demand to name a blogger who called a model a "skank". Luckily the final result went off relatively without a hitch (you will need to read up on this if you have no idea), but the whole idea that freedom of anonymity can just be reduced to nothing by Google is just an incredibly disturbing precedent. Especially given the power that Google now wields. I remember a few years ago, the other showed me a mock presentation which showed how Google slowly took over the world in some scary scifi movie like way - harking back to Skynet in Terminator or something like that! It was scary as hell, and now their power is limitless. The fact that they are willing to compromise basic principles of decency shows just how spineless and unreliable they can be, and this does not bode well, as they could have just fought this with all their power.

Hmmmmsies. Enough from me today. JRL update later this week!

I watched Paycheck (good but ending was a letdown), and Picnic at Hanging Rock (AWESOME AND DISTURBING) on the weekend and was nicely impressed. Anyhow, that's it for now. Have a nice day folks!

These days, you just can't win

So I get to enter into my dreamscape again.

I also do not wish to turn this blog into a dream diary!! Haha, it truly is anarchy inside my mind.

Hahah but that shouldn't matter anyway, since I don't remember the one I had last night.

Oh well, I'll try to get in another post before JRL update on the weekend, but no promises!!

Baby, when the lights go out!

So yes, we had another blackout.

Luckily my dad woke me up earlier this time and I was able to have a shower and a pretty cruisy morning. Still extremely busy at work though, which is good.

Also, I had another strange dream! I guess blackouts should occur more often!

Anyway, I was apparently heading overseas, and I was eating breakfast gingerly (with 3 separate glasses of OJ, in their respective glasses)!

I didn't know where I was going, or when! So I just jumped in the taxi and then I couldn't make sense of my itinerary!!

So I had no idea where I was going!!! Even weirder, I was travelling by myself! Who does that? Hahaha still mega interesting though.

AS mentioned, JRL update this weekend. I'll also try to get into another update before then, but no guarantees. Beware, retro/intro spective coming soon!!!! Have a nice day folks!

Oh tall private school girl, stop being everywhere I am!!! It's freaky, ok!

Shapes moving away, as was the spirit of your memory

It is rather late for this post! Haha then again, I remember back in the good ol' days of uni, I was posting at12:30-1am each day. Ahh I miss those times. People could say now I am earning money and have more freedom (non homework wise etc). But to those people I say, I was always on top of my work (most of the time), so I almost always had free time. On top of that, I'm not spending any of the money I am saving, so it's really the same net result anyway!

Today was a strange ass day, let me tell you! Last night was incredibly windy. Usually I'm unsettled when I try to sleep in such weather but I slept like I baby. So I had a wonderful dream (see below). Then I hear my dad walk into my room and he goes "aren't you going to work today?" and I'm like "HUH of course I am" and he goes "well it's 10 past 8!". Sheeeeeit! I'm usually leaving the house and on my way to work by then! So I skipped my shower, zoomed past breakfast and on to work, rather late! It turns out the wind made some branches touch power lines and we had a small blackout and all the clocks reset.

Then I was just living the rest of my day in confusion as I was busy and I am going to be busy for the next two months! It should be good though.

Ahhh last night I got bored playing guitar. That's never happened before. I hope it never happens again. Cause it's a terrible feeling.

I saw a beautiful girl on Saturday. I've never seen anyone who looks even remotely like her before. I won't even begin to describe her cause my words would be an injustice. I hope I see her again someday! Of course that will get me in trouble. I just wanted to mark this! It was probably also some place where I should not be keeping an eye out for such things!

As mentioned above, I had a strange dream last night. I really like it when I oversleep because I usually dream well, and dream vividly. First dream, I was out hiking with friends on a mountain range somewhere, but I was on a bike. We were going down a path but then Mandy Moore (yes, THAT Mandy Moore) suggested we go up the scenic route. So we did and the mountain range was absolutely beautiful. We sat there taking pictures and I was hearing "She Drives Me Crazy" by Fine Young Cannibals playing over and over.

Second dream, I was witness to some incident where a child accidentally killed someone important and well loved. From memory (of which, mine is very hazy) I think she chucked a rock and it hit this fellow in the head and he died. So of course the lynch mobs formed and they wanted to hurt this poor innocent girl. So I protected her and we seemed to be on the run for a long time. I took care of her and I got to know her and she was incredibly sweet and had no capacity to understand what had happened, but she was scared. But goddamn it I became like a father to her and I worried about her. It was wonderful, it was emotional, it was amazing. I don't remember exactly what happened in the end, but I woke up feeling happy. It's been a long time coming.

Anyhow, I am out folks. As mentioned, an update to the JRL is probably due this weekend. I'll also aim to get in another post before then! Have a nice day.

Her name wasn't quite Mandy...

No, it wasn't. And I wasn't exactly who I said I was either. I didn't think I could lie like that, but I have been known to surprise myself on occasion.

What's worse was that she was impressed, and I was happy with myself for getting away with it, cause nobody else knew any better.

I thought I wasn't like them.

I posted again because in my previous post I neglected to mention the upcoming annual blog retrospective/introspective. So it's due next month, and I know I mentioned several posts back that I would put everything into one gigantic post, but I think that might be too large and cumbersome (and would also take some time to do).

Therefore, I am proposing to do the standard part - that is reading my own posts then commenting on them (which I'm sure won't take very long).

Then I will aim to read the other's posts and if there's anything outstanding which I didn't address in my previous posts, or points of discussion, I will refer to them. However, I will do this on a year to year basis.

It should be good. Oh yeah, and updates to the Joaquin Rate List (JRL) due soon!

Enjoy, and have a nice day folks!

I'm wondering where everyone is?

I guess nobody seems to be here anymore!

I had stuff to post last night but now I can't remember, and I didn't have the opportunity to put it in my blognotes, so I'm sorry.

I have training all day tomorrow, so I'm looking forward to not having to go to work and having a slack time. If required, I will of course, show off how awesome I am.

Sometimes in order to overcome temptation you just have to avoid it completely. But at times that may not be possible and you just have to have the strength to come through it.

Anyhow, that's it for now folks! Have a nice day!

It makes me want to!

I don't particularly LOVE my work. I don't mind it. I don't hate it like I hated my old work. I can put my head down, get the work done, and do it well.

However, I still have awkward moments with the older white male crowd for some reason. I don't think they like me! Or they're weirded out by me cause I'm quiet. They are nice and warm to the other new guy, but these folk don't talk to me unless they really have to.

Oh well! I have a flex day due soon! Hahaha, I do rock!

Have a nice day folks.

Sometimes the most dangerous word is someday.

I had the oddest dream last night. I was out with a friend at some event with his relatives (who I've never seen or met). Then one of his relatives was arrested and as he was being frisked, the relative made some weird comment and I became suspicious, so I started to back away.

Then the scene switched to some weird basement with no windows, just walls all over the place, very flimsy ones. Then my suspicious were confirmed when I heard ticking and it got faster and faster, so I grabbed my friend and ran a few rooms down and took cover against a wall and I said "It's a greek wall" (don't ask me what the hell a greek wall is - but I thought in dream I was making a joke, as my friend is greek) and he laughed, and then of course the ticking stopped and a bomb went off.

We didn't feel too much of the effects, the room was fine. But we stepped outside and it was pure devastation, everything had been decimated, and everyone had been reduced to dust. It was incredibly odd, but we were somewhat cheery about the situation and went about our day as if nothing strange had happened.

Then I woke up and I was FREEZING my ass off. My top blanket has a habit of creeping off and it came off and I was cold. After my alarm I had a shower got ready, and then looked at my phone and saw I was awake 20 mins early!! What the hell?! Someone has messed with my bed clock and it was WAY fast! Damn nation.

What oddness indeed.

I'm trying to get a flatscreen tv soon! Trying to have a setup like the other. Enough for now folks, have a nice day!

Stepping off bleak cliffs

Just a quick post before I watch some movies and play some games. I took tomorrow off on something called "flex time". For those of you that don't know, flex time is a system where you get time credits for extra hours work and can trade those in on a time for time basis for time off. I have about two days off now but I'll trade the other one in on the night Michael Schumacher races in Valencia!

I saw the other on Fri night which was great. Always good to catch up. Helped him with his tax affairs and he is looking at a nice refund. Haha talking like a loser here. It was nice to use some the skills I learned previously though.

Got into some gaming, with GTA 4 (AMAZING, I WOULD LIKE TO DROOL NOW) and Warhawk, which was just down and out good FUN. That's what we've been lacking, just awesome fun and not much else. A great spiritual successor to Tribes I gotta say.

This weekend has been relaxing, just the way I like it.

So why am I posting? Oh yeah, in response to the other's twitter post, I have to say that Regina Spektor is an unusual talent, she is very unique, and I think people should give her stuff a listen. She has the capability of being very polarising, you either like her a lot or you hate her with a passion.

Why am I attracted to such feminine fragrances, or stuff that reminds me of women?? First was Dove soap which reminds me of a girl I knew in Sydney, when I was much younger. Chanel #5, which just drives me WILD (haha although I don't use it of course)! And now this Nivea Moisturising Cream for men with SPF, I don't know WHAT it is, but it's just the essence of femininity and it's elusive. I can't stop smelling my hands!!! It's coming home. To a place better than where I am.

Anyhow, that's it for now. Have a nice day folks!

Fleeting thoughts in a memory haze

I stopped moisturising after every shower. I probably should in winter, considering how hot I have my showers, and the fact that my skin peels now. But I only moisturise my face now after I shave. Since my last moisturiser ran out, I'm now using Nivea Protective moisturiser and I am loving it.

It smells like girls. Not the most obvious thing you think of when you think of girls and smells, but just girls. Ahh, it also smells like home.

I've stopped using that body milk moisturiser, which is a shame, cause I liked the smell of that too.

Yep I've got nothing. Have a nice day folks!

Our eyes should stop meeting like this

So I thought it was going to be a bad night. Once again, forced to go to a function that I did not want to go to. I wanted to watch some movies and play some games but alas, it did not happen.

So I sat there, next to people I did not know while they chatted, and I said nothing.

Then I spotted her near the start of the night - gorgeous fair skin, sharp facial features, sheer sleeves that gave the slightest hint of an amazing body, and shiny green eyes. One word: sex. Pure sex I tells ya.

So out of nowhere, this girl sits opposite me and I'm having a freak out right then and there. Then the night starts to wear on and I'm just looking at her and grinning like an idiot. But she was also eyeing me, it did feel good.

This girl was different to most others, she was all class. She was beautiful. That's a word I do not use often, because it's difficult to find examples.

So I didn't say anything to her, because I was just enjoying looking at her. Then later on I just decided why the hell not and asked her about her life. Then I was shocked. She has the same job I had previously, albeit with a competitor, in the city I was in before! She also lives right near where I used to live, in fact I would have passed her residence several times. We had a lot in common. It was fantastic. Then it was time for me to leave. It was fantastic. I had a good time.

Just wanted to mark this so I didn't forget it. What a week. First my Alicia Sacramone dream, and now this. Is this leading to something? Hahah I think the starting gun has already gone off. But the finishing line is coming up. However, not much time until the next race.

That's enough for today folks.
