The most pointless toy you've ever owned [01 Jul 2006|08:28am]
Just a random thought I had this morning - the most pointless toy I've ever owned is:

Karate Kid chopsticks/fly-on-a-string. If only I could find a pic! It was genius.

Gym yesterday [22 Jan 2006|11:11am]
I was lucky to have a highly observant instructor, who was able to pick out a number of things that doctors and osteopaths never did.

My main concern with exercise is breathing, and whether I'm going to have an 'attack' of some kind that will mess me up. I know I have some nerve/muscle damage across both sides of my back where I was opened up, but before I'd had a chance to mention it, my instructor noticed problems with my lats. Half an hour on a treadmill and some awkward lat-stretching later, I felt like I had a new pair of lungs. Great stuff.

Death in the family [31 Oct 2005|09:36pm]
My cat had to be put down today.

He'd been back and forth with a heart condition for the last few weeks, but he had one hell of a good run and a great life. To think - eleven years ago, I came back from my grandmother's funeral with a kitten. We buried him under the pear tree in the back garden.

Nostalgia [30 Aug 2005|08:58pm]
[ mood | drunk ]

There's something about a nice bottle of wine that gets me fired up about the past, what's been and gone, what could've been, and resolutions for the future.

...just how much certain lines in Labyrinth rule.

Try one of these doors.
One of them leads to the castle, and the other one leads to-
Bububu buuumm!!!
Certain death!

Hilarity [12 Aug 2005|09:03am]
My mum went to hospital to get a 24-hour heart monitor installed.

All seems well, until it dawns on her that she's wearing a T-shirt and has to get public transport home. With a ton of wires dangling from each sleeve. DURKA DURKA!

I fucking KNEW it [10 Jul 2005|11:35am]
Body scan machines to be used on Tube passengers

“After today, I expect the travelling public will be more prepared to put up with a greater level of surveillance.”

To paraphrase Ben Franklin, those willing to give up their freedom didn't deserve it in the first place.

Aside from the obligatory feelings of "all fundie muslims must die" and "any excuse for the government to destroy our freedoms and lock us into unending war":

Mer and I aren't actually engaged, but we wanted to tie the knot on 07/07/07. Fucking durkadurkas ruined THAT for us.

When did movies start telling the truth? [06 Jul 2005|09:12am]
Ligers are real.

Lance Armstrong really did have testicular, brain and lung cancer all at once.

Paras osa sinusta valui lihavan äitisi sisäreittä pitkin
The best part of you ran down your fat mother's inner thigh

Meray tuttaya de choowa noo kungi maar madarchod

A surprise [21 Jun 2005|10:52am]
[ mood | relieved ]

My exam results are out a week early!

I'm pretty pleased, I got a '10' (2:2) for the one I thought I'd completely bollocksed up, and aced the other two. My overall degree classification isn't on there yet, but it's going to be a first class.

OMGWTFBBQ [13 May 2005|08:18am]
[ mood | weird ]

I managed to get an extension for my project, owing to my flat FLOODING the night before the deadline (WTF!!). We may have to shell out for a new carpet, but luckily the only other damage was to the phone line.

My exams are finally over. Yesterday's was a nightmare: stupid essay questions about things that weren't covered in lectures or the core texts. I walked out after two hours. Fingers crossed until 28th June...

I need a job (my Indian accent's coming along nicely). Until then, I've got an Indesinence album to record, and some mobile-based projects that I might be able to sell. I'm no salesman, but it'd be handy in a job interview to whip out a 'phone and show off what I've done.
