Life

17 04 2008

Woke up this morning later then usual, didn’t have school today because I had to go to a homeopath in Sligo. There was a Lite Brite there that was fun to mess around with. Got home and did the usual… nothing. I hadn’t read Questionable Content in a while so I did that… and finally took the time to check out Garfield Minus Garfield and was glad I did. I still have homework from yesterday to do for tomorrow, my science teacher is going to kill me unless I do it. Sigh.

Tomorrow I’m hopefully getting my dirty mitts on new albums by iForward, Russia!, Crystal Castles, Cut Copy and The Last Shadow Puppets. I already heard the FR one from when it leaked and it’s very good, and I’ve heard songs from the other three and can’t wait to hear the whole thing.

That’s it for now.





Um, wow.

13 04 2008

Well, how long was it since I posted here? A week? And three days? Yeah… that can be counted as a while. That, and the WordPress dashboard and writing thingamajigs look all different now… It’s hard to adjust but it’s definitely prettier then before, and the post writing form is easier to work. All lovely and gorgeous, like everything should be. Smiles all around!

I don’t know why there was a lack of new posts lately… maybe it was because on Wednesday the forum I spend most of my time came back after two months down time and I’ve been posting like crazy over there, and it could also be that I’ve become addicted to Questionable Content, or maybe I had nothing to blog about. That happens a lot. I’m sorry. Seriously though, QC is amazing.

I’ve been thinking of making another LiveJournal. I made one last Summer, but only posted twice, went for a holiday in Canada for three weeks, forgot my password and basically forgot about it. I’d hate to look one of those stupid scene kids who makes LiveJournals and post slash fan-fiction and talk about how no one understands them and they have Asperger’s Syndrome blah blah blah… but it does look pretty cool…

My parents are in Budapest for the weekend, which mean that for the past couple of days I’ve been an insomniac. OK, not an insomniac, but I have been staying up later despite still needing to wake up early in the morning. Yesterday I was up until 2am ish posting on earlier mentioned forum then watched late 70’s British comedy (Frank Spencer, you’re so pathetic but everyone loves you) until finally going to bed at God knows when. I’ll have to avoid doing that tonight because despite my parents not being back yet I still have school in the morning. Sigh.

I also re-subscribed to last.fm, with the intention of staying that way now. With my own money too, woop! I think I’ve run out of stuff now… I’m gonna go see what LiveJournal’s like now then see what else I can do with this oh so meaningful life. Ciao!





Today, for the first time ever

4 04 2008

I got detention. It certainly wasn’t something I was expecting… but hey, going 15 years without getting a single detention can be seen as some sort of accomplishment to some people… and all because I didn’t have some homework done…





Idiot, slow down

30 03 2008

The blog got another small re-doing, one of the few problems about WordPress.com is that, while it’s skins are vastly superior to Blogger’s, there aren’t that many, and they could let me use custom ones rather then being made to just choose from the ones that are there. Bah. I got rid of a few things from the sidebar, because well… they don’t really serve a purpose I see needed. I’d also like to thank Josh or whatever his name is for the new tagline. 😉 I’ll probably be adding new things to the sidebar as time passes by…

In other news, tomorrow marks to return of me to the buidling in which I sit in a tiny room and get taught stuff by people who I don’t necessarily have a liking for, after two weeks of lazying about and eating sugary chocolatey egg shaped confections. In layman’s terms, I’m going back to school, and starting tomorrow there won’t be any breaks (apart from May Day, wooo) until it closes for the Summer at the end of May. Which means two months of almost endless school, *insert stupid crybabying here*.

I was going to make a new header but I couldn’t be bothered. And now, over to the weather…





EARTH HOUR WOO!!!

29 03 2008

… it’s quite dark…

Every light in my house is off right now except for a couple lights in the living room (essential lights, apparently, sigh), do your part, at 8 pm today turn your lights off for an hour!

… well, it’s a bit late if you live in somewhere like the UK…





Happy Chocolate Day!

23 03 2008

It didn’t feel a lot like Easter today even though I had my fair share of chocolate (to the point of near sickness, yay!) and I visited my aunt and got even more and, like the big immature child I am, took part in the easter egg hunt. I found a lot of fruit-flavoured sweets which made my day even further, because as great as chocolate is, there’s nothing better then some good ole’ fruit sweets a la Fruit Pastilles and Starburst. Hmmmm. I also set up a little mini-disco for my two little cousins (courtesy of one iPod earplug in one of their ears), they quite surprised me, as they started dancing to anything I played, even stuff like Autechre (I still get questions from my friends as to why I like “that random stupid rubbish”) they danced like a mofo to. Then afterwards they started sifting through music channels and saying what they liked and didn’t, and they gave me a huge shock because the video for “Cassius” by Foals came on and they said they didn’t like it. :O I shall have to correct their ways. Then they just put Kiss (the channel) on and started dancing to Timbaland and Lupe Fiasco… *insert shudder here… well, Lupe’s good, but Timbaland, AAAH*

Enjoy the bunnies and eggs while you can!





Yesterday

21 03 2008

Because I have nothing else to type about and yesterday was one of the most eventful days I’ve had for a while (still not very eventful though).

I woke up about half past ten in the morning, then at noon-ish I walked up to the shop nearby where I met a few of my friends, and we went walking up the village and walked further off from it, we met a dog on the way and he started following us, we named him Stick at first because he kept picking up sticks, but later on we re-named him Object because he picked up a bottle of water rather then a stick. We met one of the people who used to go to school with us driving a tractor with his sister (or someone) and we tried to jump onto the tractor and hitch a ride, but we failed, and he said that trespassers will be shot and survivors would be shot again. When he drove away we started walking back and he met us later when he was cycling. We were talking about stuff and attempting to get the dog back home (he was still following us, like ages away from where he started following us), eventually, we just ran back into my house and locked the gates until he walked back home. We then went to one of the other people’s house and played hide and seek in his attic, except this time the seeker had to stand outside the door to the attic and then walk in when the hiders are ready, then try to find them… with the lights turned off! ooh yeah. Except we were cheating by using our phones and their lights. A few of the people had to go home and the remaining people stayed behind and watched The Commitments until I had to go home meself.

I need to go out more often.

Also, I want to know what happened to that dog.
