26/1/10 16:05 - Writer's Block: Kill the music

What is the absolute worst song ever written? For what amount of money would you consider listening to it over and over again for 24 hours?

Abba - anything written by Abba literally makes my brain hurt it's so awful.
I'd listen to it non-stop for 24 hours for $1,010,000 - enough to buy a VISA.

1/12/09 22:27 - Writer's Block: Smoke screen

What are your feelings towards smoking? What rights do you think smokers and non-smokers should have?

Having had to suffer sharing my space with smokers for a long time, I've got little sympathy for smokers, addicts or not - they can only claim to be victims if they don't inflict their problem on everyone around them.
I am wholeheartedly in favour of the smoking ban in enclosed public spaces, I love being able to go to a restaurant or bar without smoke filling the air. I like the idea of the 15-20foot rule, but I'd like to see it enforced, as most places it's simply ignored and I still have to walk through a haze when entering or exiting a public building.
Maybe it's just where I've lived, but I'm not fond of running into smokers outside either, it probably doesn't have a significant health effect, but time and time again I find myself with a faceful of grey air just walking down a street, because I'm in the wake of a smoker. I would *like* for it to be disallowed in all public places, but I don't know if that's fair, necessarily.
Lastly in private places like their own home, they should be allowed to smoke as they will.
But... I think this allowance ends where they share a home with a person who has no choice but to breathe the same air - as an involuntary secondary smoker of many years, I believe that a non-smokers right to not breathe in smoke overrides any smoker's right to indulge their addiction.
Smokers with children especially should not be allowed to inflict it upon their kids.

Currently in London Heathrow airport, and bored.
First plane flight in nearly forever (and I don't remember the previous ones), and I'm man enough to admit I was pretty nervous throughout.
I'll be in Chicago in about 12 hours, yay.

The GLA->LHR flight was early, hope the next one isn't. 't would be much simpler if Zia was there. Plus immediate hugs on leaving the plane would be awesome

3/8/09 15:23 - Just in case - Friend requests

I friend lock a lot of my stuff, if you're a friend and want to be added, ask and you will recieve - if you're someone who's simply curious, ask (tell me who you are) and I'll think about it.
Mostly the public stuff will be memes and similar stuff that I don't think is all that personal.

2/3/07 00:34 - Hop on!

I blame CatBoyMercutio for this.

Comment here, and...

1 ). I'll respond with something random about you!

2 ). I'll challenge you to try something new.

3 ). I'll pick a color that I associate with you.

4 ). I'll tell you something I like about you.

5 ). I'll tell you my first/clearest memory of you.

6 ). I'll tell you what animal you remind me of, as if this is going to be a stretch.

7 ). I'll ask you something I've always wanted to ask you.

8 ). If I do this for you, you must post this in your journal, damnit!

9/2/07 19:55 - Curses

It's been ages since I posted - I'm such a lurker.
It's just that the only real thing that's happened (that I'm going to talk about) has been me lazing around and avoiding work.

But today something that I should share happened - I found out I got scammed.
Yep - totally ripped off by http://www.beast-pc.com/
The site appears to be a money recieving site - where you give them money and they give you nothing in return (kinda like a charity, but more evil)

I'm gonna have to see what I can get back from them - but I'm severely pissed off. At least partially with myself for not doing a simple Google on "beast-pc.com scam" -before- paying for things.

Now I want to burninate someone.

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In February I helped taijimana see the light (8 points). In March I committed genocide... Sorry about that, hakutenreika (-5000 points). In June chaoz_jamez and I robbed a bank (-50 points). Last Sunday I signed my organ donor card (28 points). Last Wednesday I set bobkytten's puppy on fire (-66 points).

Overall, I've been naughty (-5080 points). For Christmas I deserve a lump of coal!

15/9/06 01:42 - Back to Dundee

I hath returned to my uni - all looking forward to a scary scary year. 4th year is hard!

Hoping to pass - maybe even pass well - will be trying to do my best this year to get a good grade.
Trying hard isn't something I'm good at, so we'll see how this goes.

I'm also trying frantically to solve my financial situation - there's a nice lump sum coming in from the student loans people - but my current bank is suspended because I got charged £70 for a direct debit gone wrong when I had no cash.

Well moving banks now - that'll show 'em. Plus I'll have an overdraft so it doesn't happen again.

4/8/06 02:52 - Life update

Not much has changed - well theres been a little turbulance in my life over the course of the last few weeks, keep-to-self-type stuff though.
Other than that - erm ... still poor (getting poorer actually - tricky but possible, even when you have no money) and I owe Miikka more money with every passing month, the uni money which is (hopefully) not getting any bigger, and now I owe Chris money too... x_x ... well, to be accurate, I owe him 3 dinners. (was it 3...or just 2...I think it was 3 *shrugs*)
I have an interview tomorrow - not exactly wonder-job, but it'll pay the dues. (That word just doesnt mean the same thing to me since AL.)
Hmm...been playing a lot more AL recently, so enjoying that - it's hard work as always, but rewarding.
My character found out recently that Ran + Miki is an item, he's depressed about that - naturally. (Perhaps I should find out what my password for that LJ account is so I can actually post in it for once - eh?) - *goes to do that after this.*

Hmm...running a game for my younger sibling, my cousin, and one of my RP-experienced friends - I'm sure he's not too impressed by the other two (well they are somewhat noobish.)
I'm not very good at coming up with: Plot for a game, long descriptions and stories, anything else creative and text - scratch that, creative at all - people nagging me to do stuff faster puts me in a Killing Mood sometimes.

Saaa...other than that - not much to say really.
Other people should post again! It's been too quiet on the LJ front for a time.

10/7/06 06:43 - Life Update

Still at parent's home, still without a decent internet connection, without a job, without _my_ PC, without my friends, without all the things that generally keep my amused.
Notably currently without sleep too - just having one of those nights where I try to sleep then get bored of it.
I'm looking for a job - a decent one would be nice but unlikely since noone wants to employ someone for a few months. Particularly not in any of the fields I can actually do.
I'm almost desperate enough to go work for a crappy Tesco outbound callcenter - yes, I'd be one of the annoying people who piss you off by wasting several minutes of your valuable time. Done it before for !3 hours! Shortest job I ever had. Never even bothered to go collect my pay - not worth the effort, certainly wasn't worth the bus fare.

Trying to get involved in a coding project (no money involved - afaik ^_^), but no reply from the person as yet - given it's my flatmate you'd think he'd do me the favour of at least keeping me up to date, I guess a (someone else's) wedding keeps you busy?
I sometimes get the impression he doesn't think that much of me (skills and responsibility-wise) - he's one of the few that's never actually said it (everyone else has, and naturally I insulted them right back, in a friendly banter kind of way) - but he's also never said otherwise - this is my paranoia speaking out loud and based on little fact, btw. I'm fairly insecure when it comes to other people's imagined opinions.

Erm ... ran out of things to say. Damn.

What Type of Killer Are You? [cool pictures]

You are a maniac killer.
It doesn't matter who they are and what they have or haven't done. You still want to kill them. And for a simple reason only; it's fun. Seeing people in pain is like ecstasy. Maybe you have some sort of mental problems or you are this way because of previous deep scars, only you know. But now you are sadistic and maybe you only like to see a special group of people be in pain (e.g. preps). However you are not the most social person in the bunch and people think you are weird. That bothers you somewhat but atleast you can entertain yourself with daydreaming about killing them. After all, they have no idea what's coming.

I have to say this result amuses me. Not exactly what I expected - but I can live with it. Kind of suits my plans of world domination.

16/6/06 04:13 - Rawr - trains 'n' stuff.

K, update on my life, ne?

Saa... still nothing particularly interesting happening.
I'm vaguely trying to eat healthy, or at least a bit less than usual.
I've ran almost completely out of money - I'm (kinda) trying to do something about it.
There's only me, Miikka, and Phil in the flat - I am soooo bored.
Phil's never here, Miikka is out fairly often since he got a job, but he's usually not in a sociable mood so that doesn't help.
3 people in the flat and I spend 95% of the time without anyone interested in conversation, watching anime, or gaming - come back Ojisan! Even Chan is more interesting - somebody who doesn't mind talking to me.

Saw this really cool J-Drama just now, it's called Densha Otoko. It _absolutely_ rocks!
mildCollapse )
I'm dying to see the rest of it.

It looks like I might pass the second semester of Japanese this year, but I'm not too sure .. on average I fail the coursework section, but I pass the exam section by a decent margin ... I might have to resit the coursework, but that's okay - such things happen when you do both parts of the coursework in one night. *shrugs* I've basically passed the in any case - so long as there isn't some obscure rule that I don't know about (and I did ask).

Fingers crossed.

Ooh yeah - I'm going to Amecon! Yay! Wai! Wai!
I'm cosplaying (plan to anyways) Inuyasha from the show of the same name ... -and- Zoisite from BSSM Sailor Moon (the Live Action one)
Chris and some other people -may- be coming, if they can get off of the waiting list and onto the actually going list.
I hope so, as lame as Chris may be, he's my ride there. (I'm only teasing. You do suck0, but I like you anyways :D )
Anime Con, amecon, amecon *dances* *falls over* ... oh yeah - does anyone know how to dance? There's a formal ball-type thing there, and I wanna go, but I also have absolutely no idea how to dance. Not good.
Perhaps I can let one of the girls 'be the man' of the dance. And there ends my knowledge of formal dancing - the guy usually leads, and people wear pretty outfits.

Wow, A lot's happened in the last day or two.
Maybe my life is eventful.

*goes sleepy* 4:00am ... geh

*Finally decides to actually go to bed* 5:41am ... Ah!

Edit: Oh, and for anyone who doesn't know - I fixed my PC!
It - Works. About a year after I originally got it, it - finally - works!

6/5/06 03:36 - Japanese test n stuff

Good news:
Passed my Japanese Oral Test (Didn't pass it well, mind - but Adya-sensei said I'd pass)

Fixed my HDD which I dropped (and thought I'd FUBAR'd) last week - it's not a good sign when a device locks up your PC just by plugging it in. Strangely, I didn't do that much to fix it, I tried it again, and it almost worked - no partitions on it, but it didn't freeze windows. Then I fixed the lost partition and all my files are back - wtf? Self fixing hardware?

Bad news: 'nother test on Thursday -_-; More studying needs done. Lots more.

Uninteresting news: ... seemed like a good title at the time ... nothing worth putting in here, it's all boring.

"Confuzzled." DiamondMX wonders who else uses this word...

5/5/06 01:58

Some of the questions I didn't really understand - can't find the right one now.

Also - cool it's stormy outside. Thunder, and rain and I'm gonna go looksee what's there.

27/4/06 02:42 - Thoughts about Angelic Layer

If you don't want to listen to a random whiny post, I suggest you stop now. Nostalgia and a sudden sense of loneliness bit me and it hurts.

Whine,Collapse )

23/4/06 19:49 - A terrible sin...

My flatmates have committed a great evil.
They must be punished.

Oji-san and Ni-chan have defaced my desktop and my mind with evil images of overweight male Chii cosplayers.
This is will not be allowed to pass.

Now I need only think of a punishment sufficiently cruel and unusual to befit this atrocity.

22/4/06 17:59 - Silent Hill Movie


Just watched the film (not going to spoil anything) and it was great.
Had some genuinely terrifying moments, and btw, I haven't played the games, and don't know that much about them - you don't need to have played the games to understand and enjoy the film (sure there's little touches here and there that are placed there for fans - but it looks like the directors intention was to make a damn good film first, and fanservice second.

"I ... can still hear them" DiamondMX

14/4/06 04:48 - April Humour

is a funny joke.

RIAACollapse )
is not a joke.
It's actually kinda funny if it wasn't also really worrying - it's a bleak future that nearly every authority figure is pushing the internet towards. Particularly those demons at the newly formed MAFIAA.

Or is it a joke after all? ^^

4/4/06 23:52 - More randomness for lack of anything relevant

Hmm, I've noticed in my wanderings that some people can turn really long posts into single line links to make it less spammy. I don't know how to do this yet.

But before that, the news - I've got no money, almost none at all.
I'm expecting to be eating cheap for the next few weeks before my next loan check comes in.
*goes to ATM to check I've got enough money to pay my share of the electricity bill*
*sees £25*
*looks again to be sure that the soon to be heard girlish scream is not wasted.*
*girlish scream ensues*
*shortly folled by - "No Moa!...No moa okane!...Nyaa! kane ga nai!...Miikka-san, give me itens and money plx. Particularly money"

1. One of your scars, how did you get it?
More impressive one I got a few months ago having an operation on my backside. It's like at least 6 inches of hideous scarline. I'm told it'll mostly go away over the course of the next year or so. Mostly.
2. What is on the walls of your room?
reading clockwise: FMP poster, Chobits poster that's fallen off (must fix), Love Hina poster, Orphen poster, Chobits wall scroll. Beige walls and a 'Fire Action' sign that tells me not to stand outside please if the building is burning down.
3. What does your cell phone look like?
It's really small and has all the latest features, it's also invisible, super lightweight and thought controlled to do exactly what I want it to do - sfa. I have a landline and it does me fine.
4. What music do you listen to?
Rock, metal, Jrock, Jpop, trance or dance sometimes, whatever the hell In Nomine and Nightwish claim to be too.
5. Do you know what time you were born?
11:45pm, I've been told more than once, it was also 15 minutes from being a different zodiac sign. I _really_ wanted to be an aquarian (or so I'm told, but I actually had to think to remember which I was for a few minutes there)
6. What do you want more than anything right now?
Money - I'm poor, and will be for the next few weeks *cry*
7. What do you miss?
Being younger and knowing that the best days of my life were definetly ahead of me. Now I've been most of the way through Uni and I'm wondering if I somehow missed them.
8. What is your most prized possession?
Chii! I've got a 10-15" plushie of Chii from Chobits, and it's my mostest prized thing in the whole world it is!
9. What is your favourite smell?
You know the smell of rain at night, when it's pouring down around you? That one. It's the smell of cold, wet, and alone.
10. Do you get claustrophibic?
No. I like small spaces, often I make them smaller by not tidying up the room, too.
11. Do you get scared of the dark?
Not really, but I have what might be classed as a hyperactive imagination. There's nothing there, but on the offchance there was, it'd look like this, it'd be trying to kill me because:..., and it'd be over in that corner there - yes, that very particularly shadowy one.
13. What is your favourite cologne/scent?
On the occassions I get an urge to smell and taste (from a distance) like car odouriser, I don't really care what brand of 'deodorantit' is. The stuff stinks more than I do.
15. Where can you see yourself being proposed to?
I'm a guy, so I don't really - and I don't really like the whole marriage thing either, seems crazy to me - but since we're imagining here ... the most romantic proposal someone else could give me would be a nervous, blushing, "I've been thinking... do you think maybe..." sorta one - If the emotions are so strong they can't speak, they actually mean it.
16. Coffee or energy drinks?
Preferably both for caffiene overdoses!
19. Who is the last person who made you mad?
Mildly annoyed? Miikka. Really pissed off - My mother.
20. Do you speak a different language?
ee, sukoshi dekimasu. (Yes, I can a little)
21. What was the first gift someone of the opposite sex gave you?
*thinks back* The furthest one back I can remember is this devil-suited taz teddy thingy.
28. Would you fall in love with someone who was leaving?
We're all leaving sooner or later, best to love someone for a little while than not at all. I totally disagree with the whole 'I'm staying away from you _because_ I love you' thought process.
29. What is the best way to tell someone how much they mean to you?
Hmm...flowers are good, presents that are special - but really if they mean a lot to you, you're best to say it. Not that I necessarilly could...that's just best.
30. Say a number 1-100
Approximately 3.14159265358, yes - I know that was lame.
31. Blondes or brunettes?
Both too plain for me - I want a hair colour that's not natural and not blonde.
32. What is the one number you call most often?
33. What annoys you most?
People who don't listen to me. People who lie to me. People who dislike me for no good reason.
33. Have you been out of the US/Europe
Yeah, once I went to Florida for Disneyland.
35. Your weaknesses?
My lack of confidence, my projected absolute confidence.
37. First job?
Working in Boots factory, therefore at one point or another I was responsible for someones bottle of shampoo unexpectedly snapping open and coating the rest of their stuff.
38. Even done a prank call?
Don't think so.
39. What were you doing before this?
Avoiding work by wandering on the internet.
40. If you could get plastic surgery what would it be?
Neko ears and a prehensile tail. That'll get me noticed for sure.
41. Why did you fill this out?
Cos it was there. I'm not even 100% sure about posting it, but since I've already put so much effort in...
42. What do you get complimented about most?
*chuckles* Me? Get compliments? Erm...my coursework or something... wait, I get compliments from Adya-sensei for knowing things sometimes.
43. What would you do if alchohol became illegal?
Shrug, and move on. I drink sometimes, but I don't really care that much about it. Banning it (if it worked) would probably do the country a favour or two.
44. What do you want for your birthday?
The world! Also anything related to an anime I like, games are fun too - but you can't count on them working.
A half-naked catgirl in a cake. :D
45. How many kids do you want?
In a future somewhat removed from now, at least 2 - and at least one girl (not for the reason most of my flatmates would attest to, filthy gits)
46. Were you named after anyone?
Other than the (Roman?) god of war, mars - I've got no idea, really. - On an interesting note, my name was misspelt on the form, and has remained misspelt ever since.
47. Do you wish on stars?
Closest I'll get to that is wishing certain celebrities imminent demise.
48. What's your favourite finger?
My opposable thumb, evolution kicks ass!
49. When did you last cry?
Not telling :), repressing said incident.
50. Do you like your handwriting?
Well it's the best code mankind has ever written, sometimes I don't know what I wrote.
51. What is your favourite meat?
Tori-niku (Chicken for the uneducated masses)
52. Any bad habits?
Procrastination through laziness, procrastination through cowardice.
53. What is the most embarrassing CD you own?
Micheal Jackson CD somewhere, I think I still technically own it, but only because noone will take it.
54. If you were another person, would you be friends with you?
I dunno really, probably kinda - I don't know if I could put up with my opinionated ways - I'd annoy me.
56. Do looks matter?
Yes - I'll admit that I've never been attracted to a girl who was moderately overweight - I'm not talking model-like rake thin here, just general 'can't be bothered taking care of her own body' stuff. The ironic thing is I'm almost there myself (I'm hanging in there at mildly overweight, and I've got every intention of doing something about it ... someday.
57. How do you release anger?
(First->Last)1. Games, 2. Anime, 3. Tormenting thinking, 4. Hit things and swear(because it hurts :'(.
58. Where is your second home?
I don't actually know - seriously, I don't know where it is - it's moved and I haven't found it again yet.
59. Do you trust others easily?
Yes, I generally believe that people I actually respect (my friends) will do right by me for the most part. Been proven wrong a few times mind. But better naive than bitter.
60. What was your favourite toy as a child?
*Thinks* ... Did I like anything more than my computer? Not that I can think of. My computer, or someone elses computer, or the schools computers. I still like my computer. (On my list of things for a desert island, is a decent spec PC and a solar powered UPS.)
63. Do you use sarcasm?
The effort I'm going to not to respond 'of course not' is almost visible.
64. Have you ever moshed?
65. What do you look for in a guy/girl
In order of importance: 1. Pulse, 2. Not a smoker 3.Fun, 4. Caring, 5. Clever, 6. Not wholly unattractive (I'm not too worried about it, but there's a few things I can't stand)
66. What are your nicknames?
Erm...I got called Mush in first year - because my hair when semi-short (just before the feared mullet stage) resembles a certain fungi.
68. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
I only untie them when I put them on because I have to.
72. Favourite colour?
I like black, red, and pink. - I only wear black though for the most part.
73. How many wisdom teeth?
Honestly I don't know, don't know how to tell. But I'm thinking none, since I reckon I'd'a noticed.
75. Do you want everyone to answer these questions?
It'd perhaps be fun to find out more about people.
76. What are you listening to right now?
Yokko Kanno - Lithium Flower - GITS OST.
77. Last thing you ate?
Cheese, mustard and pickled onion toastie ... so damn healthy!
78. Last person you talked to?
Miikka-san. "Do you wanna come out and watch anime which I've found?" "No." "You git!" *silence*
79. The first thing you notice in the opposite sex?
Clothing style usually says a lot about a person - the less normal the better.
80. Where were you born?
In a hospital in Scotland
81. Scariest thing that has ever happened to you?
I remember getting lost in a 20 story building once, when I wasn't tall enough to reach the right button on the elevator, so I couldn't get back to my house. I was little and terrified.
82. Favourite drink?
Irn Bru, the purely scottish soft drink, cos no other country will drink something that's such an unnatural shade of orange.
83. Favourite joke?
Too long for this space, too lewd for PG audiences.
84. Favourite sport?
Ick. Sports.
85. Your hair colour?
Boooring black.
86. Your eye colour?
Boooring blue.
87. Glasses?
Even the ones used to hold drinks I only have a few, face wearing ones I have none.
88. Siblings?
89. Favourite month?
December! You know why.
90. Do you like sushi?
Hai! ^^ I can _make_ sushi!
91. Last thing you watched?
Kashimashi - Girl Meets Girl... so far loving this series.
92. Favourite day of the year?
My birthday, or Christmas? ... erm enie minie minie mo - christmas it is!
93. Are you too shy to ask someone out?
Properly, yes. In one word, (ex. "Wilyugooutwithme!?"), I can manage - doesn't seem to work so well though.
94. Summer person or Winter person?
Hrm...I don't like summer cos it's too hot, and I don't like winter cos it's too cold...can I pick spring or autumn? Autumn is often pretty!
95. Kisses or hugs?
Both, simultaneously and seperately, and sequentially.
96. Relationships or one night stands?
Relationships for now, maybe when I get older and jaded towards the world I'll reconsider.
97. Who do you secretly love?
Then it wouldn't be a secret...silly question. Nobody right now.
98. How many people have you macked it with in the last year?
Step 1 - google 'Macked', Step 2. Sigh and let the expression on my face tell the answer :(
99. What books are you reading?
No real books as such, manga that I stole from Chan.
100. Where do you work?
Hehe ... it says work.

Now I think about it, I'm really glad I wrote this - it really does allow a better hindsight perspective on stuff. And I dont forget things or let them get quite so blurry in the past.

Yay, pankeeki.

PS. Oh yeah there was a cool games dev conference yesterday - interesting and stuff, listening to the peeps that matter talking about our collective future and how to be part of it.
Shame there was only a couple of real games companies, most of them were odd things related but not my 'cup of tea'. I don't know, nor care about how to create custom compilers *yawn*
I wanna make ~games~, plus middleware doesn't give you that !whoa! feeling when you see your product being fought over in a games store - Hehe, I will influence and distort the minds of the next generation.

Considerate I agree with and have always tried (and sometimes failed) to strive for, if nothing else, I'd like to be liked and trusted by those close to me.
But Leader? I've led a few things and I'm not that good at it, because I try to find out what other people want, and do that. I know what I want, and I do that for me - but other people I can only guess at what they want and think.

I want the power to read peoples minds, damnit!

*sigh* Again I find myself too damn slow and clumsy when it comes to girls. :(

~Might~ have had a chance with a girl, 'cept before I'd decided if I wanted to hit on her or this other girl (probably that was a whole level of stupidity by itself) she was hanging offa someone else.

I am destined to a lonely life because I lack the courage and conviction, and most importantly self confidence to do the forward things other people do.

And I'm not lucky (or more likely, not attractive) enough to find a girl forward enough to make the first move.

Meh - this is such a whiny post. I think I'll stop now, while I'm behind.

On the upside, I went to the gym recently, and did some !exercise! ... *pause for effect* ... yes, I have decided to attempt to fix the evil spiral towards lazy fat unhealthy computer geek. Ha. Like that'll last. - I'll give it a go, I've did it before (1 hour, twice a week[ish] for a couple months) and I don't know if it even helped any. How much exercise do you need to do and for how long before it works?

3/3/06 00:49 - Maths exam yesterday

_might_ not have failed - easy questions and thus I could do some of them.
Still glad I don't need the points to pass the year.

2/3/06 03:47 - Maths exam tomorrow

Well today really.
I'm going to fail it.
Almost certainly.
Just going to sleep now. Haven't studied.

It's a good thing I don't really give a damn - I hate maths!
I really really hope next year goes okay.

D&D Online is cool.
Got into the Beta and the Pre-Purchase thingy - putting £2 in the right hands at Game goes a long way :D

Must make my aforementioned Elven Bard Fighter sometime - and so far, all of my characters have been chaotic good - cos that's the way I think. !down with the system! or something ... meh, chaos is so tiring. *sleeps*

26/2/06 01:56 - Boooored

Today was dull.
ojisan was busy,
Ni-Ex was being antisocial,
Naked-Ni was doing work,
Ni-chan was playing one player games,
and I was reinstalling windows :(

Today sucked.

On the upside - my comp seems to be at least _less_ fubar'd than before, it's still got issues mind.

More of my friends found romance yesterday... I hate them all ;) [Jokingly meant, 'Zia]
Have to say, it takes some impressive balls to start a cross continental relationship - I admire that courage, wish I had it sometimes.
I wonder if I'd really be capable of completely uprooting myself and moving to another country?
I think probably, if I had someone I was going for, definitely - it'd be hard mind, particularly given at this point in my life I don't expect (don't really want - commitment fear?) any relationship to last forever, just not ready for that.

*brrr* cold, sleepy.

Well such is the life of this "Chaotic Evil Elven Bard Fighter" <- It's a sign of ultimate boredom when I wander around and do silly tests like that.

Gotta rememeber to sign these posts, it was fun thinking them up on Reika's journal, now for mine.

"May we live in interesting times, failing that - I'll ~make~ them interesting *Grin*"

19/2/06 00:46 - Rejection bites.

Got an answer at last.
Wasn't the answer I wanted - but at least an answer, I appreciate that.
*resigned sigh* Got some 'getting over it' to do.
I'm sure I'll do that soon enough.
When there ain't a damn thing you can do to change something, all you can do is shrug, pick yourself up and move on.
Heh - this's the first time I've been outright rejected - I've had a relationship that only lasted 3 weeks and didn't actually include any real dates as such, but this is new.
Well, I'll be genki ga nai for a little while, and I've learned a few things.

I hope this doesn't cause anything too akward between us, I'll place my emotions right back on friends, and hopefully she'll stay somewhere short of 'person who I avoid'.

'Rejection hurts, but the mix of confusion/disappointment/self doubt that comes with a vague answer hurts more.'

17/2/06 21:48

Privatised a few entries that I don't really want to tell the world about.
Mostly because the world doesn't seem to want to hear.

There's a lot of things I can deal with and not be more than disappointed with.
Being ignored on the other hand really annoys me.

17/2/06 19:00

Had a plan - plan had a flaw.
Plan fell through - no new plan.

Have my suspicions, my worries and my ache.
Seems they all come to nothing for now.
Time will pass, wounds will heal.
And I'll leave this for a day when I feel new.

17/2/06 00:06 - Meh, even the internet says I'm doomed.

The Boy Next Door
Random Gentle Love Dreamer (RGLDm)

Kind, yearning, playful, you are The Boy Next Door. You're looking for real Love, a lot like girls do. It might not be manly, but it's sweet.

We think the next three years will be very exciting and fruitful ones for you. Your spontaneous, creative side makes you a charming date, and we think you have a horny side just waiting to shine. Or glisten, rather. You enter new relationships unusually hopeful, and the first moments are especially glorious. If you've had some things not work out before, so what.

Your exact opposite:
The 5-Night Stand

Deliberate Brutal Sex Master
On paper, most girls would name the Boy Next Door as their ideal mate. In the real world, however, you're often passed over for more dangerous or masculine men. You're the typical "nice guy:" without just a touch of cockiness, you're doomed with girls. A shoulder to cry on? Okay, sure. But never a penis to hold.

More than any other type, Boys Next Door evolve as they get older. As we said, many find true love, but some fail miserably in the search. These tarnished few grow up to be The Men Next Door, who are creepy as hell, offering backrubs to kids and what not.

14/2/06 15:46 - The beginning

I've thought about having one of these before,
just an idle whim of mine - I'd like a place to keep my thoughts.
Not really sure I want to publish my heart to the world though.

Will think upon it.

For now I'll just put one entry in.

It's valentines day, and usually this is an okay day, because it's also my birthday! (yay me)
Today, I've been kinda まま, cos I've been waiting on a reply from someone - and it worries me that it might just not come.

Well only time will tell, so I'll just pass the time enjoying my birthday presents.
Hehe, my dad should read the description of the manga before purchase - I've got some shounen-ai manga, not that I really mind, but I bet he'd never had bought it if he knew.
