Quite a few very interesting days to catch up on. You know my life has been interesting when I don’t have time to do something on the computer for 5 days!
Pfft, too long ago to remember.
After basically 5 periods of maths I was pretty exhausted and feeling dispondent but this was soon cured by a trip to the pub with lauperr, djkoa and ruthy. djkoa managed to break a computer chip in his car and had to call out the AA. lauperr bought me a Guinness glass from the pub. This would have been fine but she stood next to me at the bar, put her hand over my mouth and said “please don’t think I’m crazy, but…” at which point the bar maid thought it was a stick up :D. Anyway, got home in a tipsy state and mum and reubs had a good laugh at my ramblings.
My birthday. Got up at about 9:30am, had a shower and got dressed. Then I was presented with a few very cool pressies (including two more Guinness glasses), had a visit from Nick (who has a birthday the same day as me) and was whisked off to the cinema with lauperr. She wouldn’t let me pay for the bus, the taxi, Macdonalds or the cinema so it was an all expenses paid trip. The film was Lord of the Rings: Return of the King which was a very good film although I thought it was too long, seemed to end about 5 times. A pair of numb bums then got a lift back in the direction of Bourne, stopping off in Baston to pick people up and Dyke to collect something. At this point I was getting very suspicious, not about picking people and things up, but about what was going to happen when I got home.
I walked through the front door as was confronted with a kitchen full of Chinese food, balloons and booze and a lounge full to the brim with a collection of some of the most fantastic people I have had the pleasure of knowing during my lifetime. Unfortunately Adam, KT and Kimbles couldn’t make it but mchicago and bouncykaz had come all the way from Naarch. I was given a whole load more pressies including a USB memory stick (yey wez ‘n ruth!) and two more pint glasses… Attendees included Me, lauperr, mchicago, bouncykaz, djkoa, ruthy, keri, shell, lucy, reubs’ gf, family… if I’ve forgotten anyone they’re going to kill me, but I was drinking a lot at the time. The prize for the best card goes to Lucy, closely followed by Nick – but lucy made hers herself and it included nudity.
The partying went on for some time! I was a bit concerned that people would get bored with nothing to do but we all packed into my bedroom and loud music and video clips seemed to put the icing on the party. Talking of icing, mum made me a cake and decorated it to look like a Guinness glass, w00t! After laughing at the health warning on the Drinking Games box that Adam bought me at Christmas we seemed to make up our own games. For example, how many people can do the Saturday Night dance at the same time in Ben’s bedroom and a who has the nicest arse competition and the grand final, how many noodles and Guinness can we fit into Ben’s belly button. I was not amused.
People eventually started to disappear towards midnight and I walked ruthy home at about 2:30am which despite the circumstances was reasonably pleasant (she’d had a bit of a bad end to the evening, but I’ll let djkoa explain that one). lauperr stopped the night.
There was probably other stuff that happened on this day but I’m damned if I can remember. BIG thanks to lauperr for helping organise the suprise party!!!
Woke up, had a shower, watched two films back to back (Anger Management, The Man who Sued God), ate Chinese left overs and… went back to bed to get some proper sleep.
Erm, can’t remember. Oh yes I can, we studied pornographic stereograms in General Studies.
Today I woke up to a delivery. A luuurvely card from KT and a late birthday pressie from mum, 4 more DVDs! This takes the total number of birthday DVDs to 7 with… AI, Dead Poet’s Society, Hunted, Sneakers, Enemy of the State, Punch-Drunk Love. Swordfish.
I had planned to be very productive and spend my Quardruple free doing some DT. Unfortunately this included taking screenshots of a DVD and it took me most of the morning to get DVDs to play in Linux after I managed to break it. Went to school for DT and Computing (Assembler code, yum) and a slightly interesting conversation after school. Got home, ate sweets, did the geek test at http://www.innergeek.us/geek.html and apparently I’m “36.09467% – Major Geek3” which ranks just above “total geek” and just below “super geek”. Do I get extra points for noticing that the percentage rounds down to be my house number?
Now I’m writing this. Still writing this. Writing about writing this…. I think that just about gets up to date.
