Whoop Whoop Its da sound of da police

Have ordered my copy of GTASA. And have friday off. These are both good and connected things. My bruise has almost completely subsided. My lovely folks visited on Saturday, brought us two bookcases and a Dyson, took us out for a corking meal at one of my favourite fish restaurants, and were great company. Life, it must be said, is pretty good.

Actually I am underselling my holiday, I am off from Wednesday to Sunday. No plans, just relaxing. All good.

Planet Rock

Had a flu jab a couple of days ago, and I now have a cold and a twatting big bruise on my arm. Am starting to regret my wisdom in doing this. Other than that not too bad, have actually managed to start writing a little bit of an idea for a story up. Will reveal more if I write more, seems like a fair swap to me.

Have decided I need GTASA. I wasn’t convinced until I heard some of the detail in the game and the soundtrack, which is awesome beyond compare

World Famous Supreme Team

Nothing to do to save his life call his wife in Nothing to say but what a day how’s your boy been Nothing to do it’s up to you I’ve got nothing to say but it’s O.K. Good morning, good morning… Going to work don’t want to go feeling low down Heading for home you start to roam then you’re in town Everybody knows there’s nothing doing Everything is closed it’s like a ruin Everyone you see is half asleep. And you’re on your own you’re in the street Good morning, good morning… After a while you start to smile now you feel cool. Then you decide to take a walk by the old school. Nothing has changed it’s still the same I’ve got nothing to say but it’s O.K. Good morning, good morning… People running round it’s five o’clock. Everywhere in town is getting dark. Everyone you see is full of life. It’s time for tea and meet the wife. Somebody needs to know the time, glad that I’m here. Watching the skirts you start to flirt now you’re in gear. Go to a show you hope she goes. I’ve got nothing to say but it’s O.K. Good morning, good morning…

Funky Four plus One

So Sky+ turned out to be well worth getting. Astonishingly easy to use, really is one of the nicest interfaces I have ever used. Pausing and rewinding live TV is very weird but great, that is going to be so handy for sport n suchlike. The only downside I can see thus far is that it would be better with a much much bigger hard drive, but its not bad still. 250-300gb would be fantastic though 😉 Will really need to get that DVD recorder at some stage, will let me copy stuff off easily. In fact, if I do, I could probably do with a printer to let me do nice covers for the DVDs. Hmmm *plots*

A sorry state of affairs

I was too tired to game much last night. Really really happy it is friday. Looking forward to sleep, food and drink, in that order. Oh and getting Sky+ installed 🙂 I am going to record so much crap, I can’t wait. For one, I might set it up to record every simpsons shown on sky, which should let me finally fill all the gaps in my Simpsons watching. Also must purchase a DVD recorder at some stage(the two things are not connected in the slightest).

7 hours to go, then I can go and fall asleep in front of the cooker

Only 10% of Burnout 3 to go

Unfortunately of course it is going to be the hardest part. I still seem to be knocking off a couple of gold medals a session at present though so I am getting there, just not sure how long it is going to take me now. Must get back into some online gaming with it soon, see how I measure up to the evil Americans now I have unlocked some more cars.

Cold is still dragging on, very very bored of it now. Still, got nice things to look forwards to this weekend, first wedding anniversary. Bit scary to think that was only a year ago, seems miles away now. Has been a damn fine year 🙂

Last Night

I believe I was propositioned by a gay duck whilst playing Animal Crossing. I found this somewhat disconcerting, especially considering this is a Nintendo game. I mean, it is hard to say for sure, but there was an undertone to what he was saying, and he walked away with love hearts above his head

It may have been that I am wrong with the duck’s sex (how do you sex an electronic duck?). Maybe that is it.

Still ill

Just not shaking this damn cold. Still working, just not digging it. My life was considerably brightened by a visit from a Chimney Sweep yesterday. I’ve never had a Chimney swept, and it was all very intriguing to watch. When the brush got to the top of the stack, they asked me if I wanted to go outside and make a wish. I looked at them as if they were mental, but apparently it is traditional. Someone later suggested to me that it may have been the fine tradition of “guvnor, would you mind leaving the house for a moment whilst we rob the family silver?”.

Ouch

I am afraid I am in a moany mood this week. I straigned something from coughing this week, which just hurts a bit, more a nagging pain than a searing one, but just not good. It’ll calm down in a day or two, but not nice frankly.

Looking forwards to collapsing on the sofa tonight and not moving much, perhaps ever again. Long long week. Need nice food, beer and sofa. Mmmmm (falls asleep)

Welcome to my world. A world of less snot

Getting there. Close to being back to normal, which is an ideal, or at least more ideal state of affairs. It is also a very nice looking day out there, cold but deep blue skies.

You can tell its become Autumn when they start putting decent stuff on the telly again. Last night I watched The Apprentice, an american high-powered business reality TV show with the worlds best wig-wearer, Donald Trump. I saw a bit of Flashmob, The Opera, which sounded like an absolute abortion of a concept, but the last 10 minutes that I saw were simple, and really moving. And Arrested Development, an new US sitcom. Its sort of live action Simpsons meets 6 feet under. It stars Hank from Larry Saunders, which is enough for me, as anyone who was even vaguely involved with that is some sort of god. Whats more, he is funnier in that than even in Larry. It is a slow mover, but I’m very prepared to give it time, good start thus far.
