Writer's Block: Freaky Friday

If you could become a member of the opposite sex for just one day, what would you do?

Touch myself. A lot.

Writer's Block: One for the bucket list

What is something you've always wanted to do, but haven't yet done?

Damn, I wanted to post on here properly but I forgot to charge my laptop before coming out (currently no internet at home). So, this is pretty pointless.

I like coffee.

I really, really do not want to go back to England. Again. Fucking place...

Oct. 31st, 2009

I experienced the infamous "scenic route" taxi trip for the first time last night. Wanker. He wasn't even trying to rip me off as such, he was just stupid and had no idea where he was going even though he claimed to know the street before I got into the cab. So it cost me 35 lei, but should have been around 5 or 6. If I see him again, I will cut him. I need to learn some Romanian phrases like "Where the fuck are you going?" and "I know this city better than you do and I don't even live here, so don't dick me about".

That aside, I had a very nice evening out with the guys, and managed not to spend much money (which was just as well, considering the taxi). Dora didn't come out, she was tired and not feeling good apparently... Which probably means she was stoned. Anyway, I'm going to a drum n bass night with her tonight, which should be fun.

HUNGRY. Must find food now.
That's settled, then - changed the flights; we will now be returning to England on August 17th. Money will be a bit tight while we're still here, but I'll cope. And I'd rather be here than home right now.

We had a storm on Sunday night, which finally cooled the air a little, but now it's creeping back up again and I just want to laze around. We spent the end of last week at the Black Sea coast, which was beautiful. I miss the sea and the pool - I could really do with that shit right now.

I'm kind of seeing a girl. She's cool. This will not be good when I have to leave. For now, I'll just continue having fun and trying to enjoy the warm weather and the beer.
Doing this because it's an interesting meme, and I'm afraid curious as to what I'll get from Amon.

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me!

My choice. For you.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

* I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!

* What I create will be with you in mind.

* It'll be done sometime this year (2009)

* You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be something written, some physical thing made, could be anything at all, but I will make it myself. It's entirely my choice what it is. No quibbles, no refunds.

* I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch?

Oh, the catch is that you put this in your journal as well. If you don't.. You don't get anything.


I just received a piece of junk email with the subject "Looking for compressed air?"

...Not really, no. What happened to good old cock-spam? Everyone wants a massive dick.

During the review process prior to the release of LittleBigPlanet, it has been brought to our attention that one of the background music tracks licensed from a record label for use in the game contains two expressions that can be found in the Qur’an. We have taken immediate action to rectify this and we sincerely apologize for any offense that this may have caused.


I'm back. On the internet, and everything!

I wasn't really sure what to type to begin with, but I suppose I should open with an obligatory "have I missed anything?" since it's, well, obligatory. Almost. Except if I had missed anything spectacular, I probably wouldn't have actually missed it. I'm blathering. Ignore me. It's the rum talking.

So, internet access again after such a long time! It must be, what, two months or more? At first, it was difficult and I was twitchy as fuck, but I got used to being without it. Silly games, constant updates on everyone's lives via LJ/Facebook, readily-available porn, Wikipedia - I learned to let them go (though Wikipedia was fucking difficult). So, I hear you asking (in my mind) what the shittery have I been up to?

Well-loads of stuff, is the answer. Fucking WELL-loads of stuff.

Actually, not that much really. reading, dice, europe, blah.

Reading, though, YEAH! I've rediscovered the joy of books. I'm rather ashamed say I didn't read a single one last year (it was combination of laziness and House of Leaves having fucked me up), but since having no internet I've read six books, AND rejoined the library. Six books in a couple of months compared to absolutely none in the entirety of 2007 makes me feel sad, but it's going to be fine.

My favourite recent read was probably World War Z by Max Brooks, which was fucking excellent for many reasons I'm too drunk to go into now. Just read it, and don't watch the film when it comes out (if it does) until you have, because otherwise you'll miss out on something which might just be a little bit special. Least favourite book I've read recently was The Dice Man by Luke Rhinehart, because it was really interesting for the first 200-or-so pages, and then gradually festered.

However, I did give the dice a go for a day or two. On day one, it resulted in me walking way out of town in a polystyrene hat, looking for somewhere to camp out, getting rescued by Ashton and Mohawk-Tom in an expensive taxi, waking Wrong Tom and Briony up and jumping on them, and then sleeping in a basement. For a bit.

I abandoned the whole dice thing when I realised that "Luke Rhinehart" was a total fucking twat.

Oh yeah, sometime before most of this, I got driven around Europe in Dale's van, but more on that later.
