‘Ello ‘ello ‘ello… wots all this then.
So, I’ve not had a good time of it lately. I’ve been ill for the past week or so, which has been putting a dampener on things. It started last weekend when I was nauseus and a little woozy. I ended up having to skip watching Batman and go home, which was unfortunate. I couldn’t face the bus, so I caught a cab home. By the time we got here (about a 7 minute drive) the cabbie was looking real nervous.. I wasn’t in a good way. Still, I made it upstairs and into bed without causing a mess. I steadily improved through the week, though a flu has set in good. I can pretty much go places without needing and escape plan though which is nice, as long as I have some tissues in my pocket. Sigh…
To make matters worse, my PC is dying badly. It takes about six months to open a website, which is irritating. It stills IRCs, plays music and plays movies though, so it’s only mostly bad. Also it seems to be ok accessing mapped drives and whatnot, it’s just webpages that mess it up. I imagine it’s the amount of TCP requests going in and out that’s tripping it up more than anything else. Still, it’s irritating. Very irritating. I’ve currently given up with it and am using my laptop here, which is far newer and functional. Still, a replacement for the ol’ boat anchor desktop isn’t far off. Speaking of that…
… My car is for sale. It’s official, it went up online today. It would have been earlier if I had managed to remember to bring all the papers I needed to the RTA offices the first time I went there, but hey.. you get that. Still, it’ll be a weight off the ol’ noggin once it’s gone. One less thing to think about. I imagine I’ll be transportless for a little while, then I’ll look into getting a motorbike license and a little postie bike or similar. They are very cool. Alls I’ll need then is an open-faced helmet and some goggles, and I’ll be all set!
I bought Gears of War recently.. I know, I know, I’m about two years late with it. Bite me… I’ve only had my Xbox360 for a year anyway! … Anyway, I’m enjoying it rather more than I thought I would. See, I’ve of the opinion that FPSes should only ever be played with a mouse and a keyboard, to give ultimate control over the surroundings. Turns out GoW is more like a second person shooter. They’ve managed to make it utterly acceptable on there. I still die a lot (on Casual mode too..) but then, I suck at FPSes in general no matter how I’m controlling them. But yea.. I’d describe it as Half Life 2 for the Halo crowd. No puzzles, more visceral, more shooting of things. It is a shame that they didn’t do some of the exposition in the same way.. not a cut scene, just people talking while you’re hanging around.

The things you learn from books… seems he was a little flat chested.
