Is Livejournal still 'in?'
Might get back into it if anyone's still into it..........

|Hands, Pee, Hands
I had to do 'Hands, Pee, Hands' a couple of times whilst out for a curry with me dear old mother tonight.
It's bearable when you're out and about. When you have to do it when you have food on your hands in the house, you just end up crying over the amount of handwash you're getting through.
Or maybe I'm just tight-fisted.

I'm away to Cyprus on Sunday - who wants to come rub their diddy against a glass panel in some far flung jail?

|Training Tears In My Eyes
I had training today in 'Writing With Confidence.' I know, I know, anyone that's had a text from me at 2/3am of a weekend knows I can write with confidence only too well.
Anyways, we did this exercise where we had to do some creative writing about change. I wrote a few paragraphs, including the snippet:
'little did Adam Ant know that when he sang 'ridicule is nothing to be scared of,' mock-military jackets and just the right splash of make-up would still be in vogue 20 years later'
I was right part of that I was. I've got a career as an occasional Attitude Columnist in me yet.

|Don't Sandal Close To Me
Just back from the Glasgow Fort, and despite it being a 10 minute walk there and a bus back, my feet are killing me.
My pal Tommy gave me a pair of shoes on Sat that he had bought as they were too big for him. Alas, whilst the right one fitted well, the left one was cramping my toes. I thought it was just part of the 'new shoe breaking in' process. Alas i was wrong. Very very wrong.
So up the Fort getting new denims, and push came to shove. So I had to get a pair of flip-flops. :( all round. Especially since it was those ninjaesque ones where the top...bit is connected to the bottom....bit via the straps meeting inbetween the big and second toes. So that chafed a treat as I wondered about. At least they made really satisfying noise as I sloped about, the type that is a massive pain in the arse to all but the creator.
I suppose I could even try and modify them so I can take them with me when I go on holiday.

*Twitter is already boring me. Maybe if I had (someone hooked me up with) a contract phone I could be bothered with it.
*Indian Tapas (or Thali if you must) is amazing.
*I can't get used to wearing my bluetooth headset. I just struggle to believe people can hear me if i don't have a phone receiver/microphone in front of me*
*Watching aloof people leer at people out of their league is heaps of fun.
*People-watching at Polo-Pound-Wednesday is fun full stop. Makes me feel like an auld bass though.
*Almost-swear words like 'bass' are making a comeback in my lexicon.
*I am addicted to Rock Band. It's a strain not to fill my PS3 with DLC.
*I still have money and payday is still over a week away. Go me and my non-credit crunch.

Yeah, so I can't get my pc online for love nor money. Iam using the ps3 / tv but it's cumbersome and it makes me feel like I am using a toy from the Early Learning Centre.
Cept those kiddie things would keep better tabs on spelling etc.
Now I know how Jean-Michele Bauby felt...........

|What Does BFF Mean?
Does it mean anything else?
I asked someone at work (via e-mail, naitch) where to go for something to eat the other night, and they said I should go to Ad Lib.
I replied 'ok, but it had better be good or else we're no longer BFF.'
They replied 'i'm scared now....' and haven't spoken to me since.
I'm hardly the type to use BFF and mean it in the Paris Hilton sense, so either they think i'm a fanny or it has another, more sinister meaning.

So I unlocked Mirror Mode in Mario Kart Wii tonight.
And I watched Big Chef takes on Little Chef (SURELY it was edited to buggery -there is no way the CEO of Little Chef wanted to go in a 'Dry Ice Sorbet with a Seigfried of Roy jus' direction).
Then there was an episode of House (took a bit longer as I had a nap).
Now I am on LiveJournal whilst listening to music on Youtube.
Jesus wept, I need payday to come!
That's not strictly true, I just wish:
- Mario Kart Wii wasn't the cruelest game in existance. It's just so ram-packed with ways to make you fail through no fault of your own.
- I could watch TV without mother scoffing at everything.
- I didn't mind the episode of House - that was good.

If Dusty Springfield was alive and convinced Lily Allen to 'do a Lohan' so they could adopt, V V Brown would be their step-child.
Here is her song 'Leave' - Cue acting out the lyrics at the club (Monday night, to the club pride!)

|Scottesque Post Seeing As He Is 21 Like
Did The Local on Sauchiehall Street last night:
- Have a drink, have a dance, bubble.
- '2 gays out by themselves is a date, regarldess of circumstance. It's Sharia law.'
- Scott's Confessions pts 1-infinity. Eat your heart out Usher.
- Cramming 20 people into a corner table.
- 'I would like a belly likes yours' ie ridiculous things people say for hole.
- Not going to the ABC.
- Going home before 12 (ok that last one is not like Scott).

So I went to the Irn Bru Carnival at the SECC yesterday. God, it was like an unders' night at Bennets, albeit without poppers.
All the usual things were done:
*Queuing ages to get on the rides
*Spending shedloads on the games to win enough tokens for a lighter
*Eating crap like candyfloss and loving every second
And don't forget some good ol'fashioned screamingbecauseiwannagofaster.
Ah it's nice to feel young again. It's nearly 10 years since the Millennium for crying out loud. I spent 1999 going into 2000 at my first partner's house watching Graham Norton and playing the Playstation (PS1!!!!) before going to bed sober and nookie-less.
Who knows what 2009 has in store. One thing it should have in store is me spending less time in G1 pubs using the internet as I am finally getting the internet at home! Yaaaaay.
Who wants to play online Mario Kart?

Erk, I have changed!
Those who know me know that I love me some video games. Heck, I bought EVERY edition of Singstar (until Bollywood. I just didn't know any of the songs and having a bash in earnest after a few drinks just seemed a bit racist. Haha the spellchecker on this site does not recognise 'Bollywood' - who's the racist now?).
Anyways, after finishing a game, I either trade-in for store credit or just leave it to gather dust. However, there has been a recent addition to Playstation 3 games where you get trophies for achieving certain things, such as finishing a level within a time limit / without taking damage etc etc.
So today I spent 3 hours replaying Mirror's Edge to start working my way towards getting the trophy for completing the game on the hardest difficulty. It's madness, I have tons of other games to play, yet i am trying to achieve something which means replaying a game which often irritated me with it's need for precision jumping in a mode where the enemies are way tougher.
I really need a new hobby.

|What Price Redemption?
Not having web access at home, i have found myself drinking/using the PC at Speakeasy a lot these days. Speakeasy just happening to be the pub where my ex Chris works.
Anymahoo, i was here earlier tonight killing time before going to the cinema )Transporter 3, natch) and i was having a go of the PC.
After i was done facebook'ing (am i allowed an improper noun here?) and what have you, i was talking to Chris at the bar. He told me that 'a little birdie says you were in here the other night playing the puggies?' with a smug little grin on his face.
The PC does sit next to the fruit machine, but of late it's been very obvious to anyone on my phone book what state i have been in when i have been gambling. For once i am innocent, but i may as well be guilty. I dunno why i bother at times when people are lined up ready to take joy in any relapses i have.
Tis the season to be jolly my arse.

Sunday, 8pm: Get home with Wii copy of Tomb Raider Underworld. Got a loan of it from a friend you se..
Monday, 11.30pm: Sat watching the end credits of Tomb Raider Underworld.
Not tore through a game like that in a while i must say. I must also say that i am glad that Wii remotes have those little rubber jacket things, as Lara Croft's eager-but-misplaced jumps caused me to use it on my head in a manner not dissimilar to Mallett's Mallet.
Got Mirror's Edge coming to me today for the PS3. For those not in the know, it's a platform game based on free-running. Naturally i am going to play it whilst imagining i am in a Madonna music video (Confessions-era naturally).
Xmas comes by............so slowly.........

I hate hate HATE whirring blades. :(
It's pretty which why i was only ever any good at the Design part when doing 'Craft and Design (Daft)' at school. I am just too accident prone to be near anything sharp.
I have also seen Magnolia this week - there's always a fear with a movie that lasts 3 hours. If you get an hour in and it sucks, you're stuck with it for another couple of hours. In addition to that, my body tends to pack in and want to sleep when watching at home, so it's lots of toilet breaks and ginger in order for me to watch a home video (if it's manga or has Simon Bates talking at the start, then i'm lucky to make it past the opening credits).
On a more upbeat note, i haggled lovefilm.com today. My free trail has ended, although they gave me 2 months for the price of 1 after i called them and gave it the 'wah wah wah i can't afford £12 in the run up to xmas' routine. I am amazing, and am now able to rent games as well. No more trading in 10 games to get a fiver off a chart title for me, oh yeah.

|Dublin Made Me American
It must have done, as i got pally with a guy from Tenneesee AND as a bonus, got utterly owned at Tekken in an arcade by an Asian guy who cost me my €1 in about 45 seconds.
Yes i realise how open to jokes the last part of that sentence is.
Needless to day, Dublin was a lot of fun.
P.S I got revenge in the arcade at Virtua Tennis 3 - no-one breaks me.
P.P.S My serve that is.
