Ah, I forgot about this.
I've been pretty busy in the past week, being Mr. Reliable Mintjam.Oct. 19th:
It rained. I realised the reason I was feels so uncomfortable was because I was ill. I spent my day raging at the uncooperative admin CP that Forumotion supplies and how my forum layout would just spaz out for hours so I had to guess what I was changing through CSS. I was getting 3 people commentating on my edits while it was working, and getting confused by one particular helper who kept being specific and expecting me to be psychic or really knowledgeable about colours. We argued about what burnt orange was [Me: Light red! Her: It's orange!], so yeah... Fun day.Oct. 20th:
I began my replying to spam mail. I don't know why I reply to it, but some of them pass through my gmail filter and get into my hotmail junk box... So I find great joy in sending lovely messages back. I also encountered Facebook's anti-spam function, I was beginning to think it didn't exist.Oct 21st:
Room cleaning! My bed was eaten by a great pile of things and I was tempted to bury myself under it, it was so cold in my room.Oct.22nd:
The day I was supposed to go to the beach.
I expanded my collection of Subway offer booklets to 4, had a delicious foot long sandwich and got myself a weird curved keyboard. Ergonomics or something, you know? I thought I'd have trouble with a 'curve comfort' keyboard, but it's really quite efficient. £2.50 bargain.
I had a nap and woke to find that my trip for that day was cancelled. I consoled myself by cleaning my fabric/rubber mousemat xD It's so white and clean now! Shampoo is for more than just hair.Oct 23rd:
Dead internet. But the trip went ahead. Mind you, it was dark by the time we got to the beach. Whoever decided caravans were a good idea needs their head run over by a car and then to be reversed back over. It's a tin can. No heat or sound insulation. I was cold and I didn't get to sleep until the early hours because the people I was with have no concept of quiet. On the upside, I spent my night watching comedy shows on BBC and read an epic book. I also overheated my phone by browsing the internet on it for a couple of hours.Oct 24th:
D-day. My parents arrived, the only reason I was at the beach for, because we live over 100 miles apart and hardly ever get to meet these days. Morning came though, and suddenly the tin can was really warm! It rained a lot though. I started the day with an epic tuna salad sandwich while watching X-Factor repeats, and later had some fun times in the arcades with my brothers. I'm fail at pool, we found, though I can pull off impossible moves that pot at least 2 balls at once. I also can't DDR, I'm dead by the second song. Returned to my miserable abode a few hours later, and found the internet was still pretty much dead. So I stole the neighbour's wi-fi.
By the end of the night, I was exhausted, reeking of cigarettes and vowing homicidal tendencies if I didn't sleep nicely.Oct 25th:
Monday again! College day. Which was the most boring thing ever. Photoshop introduction? Please. Spare me the mind-numbing.
Got home after 10pm, and threw a Halloween 'theme' on my forum. It went down well, even if it's shite. Was awake until 6am xDOct 26th:
My day began after 1pm >.>; Me and the laptop had a change of scene and sat all day in the living room. Typed up a CV at super speed, spent a few hours looking for a new job and just lost myself to the internet.“Being ignorant of others, you will never be betrayed or hurt, though you will never escape from feeling sadness.
A person can’t erase sadness forever. Everyone is alone.
However, people can forget, and so they are able to live.”Oct 27th:
Job Centre day. It started with that piss-annoying song about Pizza Hut, KFC and McDonalds stuck in my brain, I think it was an ill omen.
By the end of the day, I'd forgotten my camera, sat over an hour talking to overweight men about my future choices in jobs and education, got sent away with half a book of printed info sheets, choked on painkillers and ended my day by seeing how far my phone would bounce across my bed. The simple things in life."We are never intimately conscious of anything but a particular perception. A man is a bundle or collection of different perceptions which succeed one another with an inconceivable rapidity and are in perpetual flux and movement."Oct. 28th:
My first Facebook update of the day said everything: "Urgh... Another day, is it? Do I have to be dressed and ready within the next 40 minutes, now? Do I have the right to be a whiny, annoying fool for a day?
I'll go brush my teeth now. -shuffles away-"
It was a long day. Epic long. I was being Mr. Supportive, going to someone's psych assessment with them and having to take the place of a friend's parents, because she refused to have them go with her. The upsides were that the Continental Market was in the city, so lots of cool stalls to poke around and I also had coffee from Starbucks. Bliss. The downside? -.- Navigating our way to a hospital mental health unit where the signs lead to a dead end, being stuck in that place for over 3 hours and then struggling to find our way back to where the bus stopped.
Overall? An awful day. I did get to wear a hat though. And sort out 2 weeks worth of photos.
Woke up to an email from some guy asking if he could use one of my photos as a music album cover. Wut? Surreal. It sounds pretty interesting.
- "Photo in question":
Looks like I'll get some album copies in return, so I'll probably go for it xD
My day... I spent most of it lying on a floor, watching Tv upside-down. Very productive. I discovered the joy of http://asianposes.com/
and made a new signature once I'd dragged myself back to my room. Nice stuff."If you can't be a good example, try to be a horrible warning."Oct. 30: TODAY!
I can see fireworks out of the corner of my eye, lighting up the sky. Bonfire night is nearly here, eh? I've already planned that I'm spending the night of the 5th up on the highest point in the area, watching fireworks, and going to a proper fireworks show on the Saturday at a local museum. It's really shaping up to be the start of a fun November. Even got a funfair nearby from the 10th to the 13th. Time to act like a little kid again.
Anyway, today? I started it with the worst nosebleed I've ever had, it looked like I'd committed murder by the time I'd gotten it to stop. I then pulled a muscle in my leg just walking down stairs. Yes, just from stepping down a step. Sign of old age?
My parents came to visit. Well, they arrived yesterday but they took me out today so I could get myself some food supplies and suchlike. 6 frozen pizzas and various easy-to-cook items are now stored away. I got free food, always a plus. And discovered the joy of resealable pop cans, a fancy plastic contraption on the top of them that really works. Though it might also be why I'm typing so much, it contains energy drink called No Fear. Caffeine overload.
And so is the end of my update for now xD Happy reading! If you want a reward for reading, suggest one and I might comply.
If anyone's interested, I take a photo a day and upload batches of them to the net. Here's links to my albums on Facebook and Deviantart:http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2055405&id=1056602125&l=bb5fa0cbf0http://mr-mintjam.deviantart.com/gallery/
