punch it chewie 

It has been said that the world doesn't need any more bloggers.

WELL, let me tell you what I think about that!

Ha, see, I make joke.

Ha, see, I make joke.

Free things I got today 

1. What looks like a motherboard box, full of premotional material for a computer company. Nothing useful.

2. A 2006 personal organiser lever arch book thing I probably won't use.

3. Lunch

4. A (not entirely cheap) pen and a (yes ok, entirely cheap) notepad.

5. A brief walk through the aquarium. 30 seconds of being the only person watching the predators swim by.

we saw monkeys 

Birthday sucked, just one of those "all bad, all the time" days we all have once in a while. I've come to expect that kind of thing on that particular day though. God knows why.

The weekend, however, was good. On Thursday F and I woke up early, packed the car and drove up to Johannesburg. We saw monkeys running across the road and F was totally overjoyed. Cutie. We stayed with my uncle and saw some of my friends and mother's side of the family. Saturday saw the big event and our main reason for driving all the way: the wedding of my good friend, M to an honest to goodness great guy, D.

Lost my sunglasses though.

Guess you can't win them all. :)

That's a good thing too 

Was talking to a friend earlier, on MSN. We knew each other a long time ago and haven't really had much contact in the past year or so. Probably more. Naturally the conversation turns to what we've been up to all this time and somehow the topic of this very blog turns up. Who'd have thought.

Sure as hell this isn't the only perpetually neglected blog out there, I think maybe I like it that way. Maybe I like the idea of *having* it more than actually putting in the effort of writing something on a regular basis. I'm not even talking about every day. Every WEEK is regular too. Maybe I like being reminded of it every once in a while when I notice it in my Bookmarks list, still enjoying top-of-menu status due to the row of --dashes-- I put in front of the name. I like the promise of it, the potential.

I like coming back to it and writing nonsense for a paragraph or two. That's a good thing too.

And who knows, internet, maybe I will come back a little more frequently and maybe I will jot down basic little bits about what I did today or in the last 7 days. You'd like that wouldn't you?

W's birthday on wednesday at Hemisphere - felt a little bad about being the one to buy him the (horrifically strong) drink that finally pushed him over the edge and into the bowl. You know which bowl I'm talking about. At least I had one with him. The drink that is, not the... bowl.

Felt crappy most weekend, D's 18th party on saturday. Note: avoid partying with 18 year olds as far as possible, they have a hard time organising themselves. Ordered pizza on sunday. Yes, it was the kind of weekend where ordering pizza is a highlight.

Monday's highlight was talking to D on MSN for three hours.

the Guinness tastes SOOO good here 

Faith and I made it to Northern Ireland. We had quite a bit of drama initially. Her flights were not only overbooked, but delayed, recalled, diverted, undercooked and overpriced. She ended up in London HOURS after she was supposed to have arrived in Dublin. They offered to fly her out to Dublin the next morning, but since she would just have had to switch planes to catch our flight BACK to London, she declined. Then they lost her luggage. For three days.

It was all good though, we went on a quick shopping jaunt to get her some clothes (to be paid for by the offending airline naturally) and met up with Faith's sister and sister's baby. Cutest kid ever, besides my own nephew of course.

And now we're in Coleraine with my brother and his wife and the aforementioned nephew. We're both a little sick with some flu that's been going 'round here, but it means that we've both gotten some good resting done. And it meant we weren't tempted to pack our days full of 'the things to do while on vacation', which would just have screwed up the whole point of taking a vacation in the first place.

I'll see you when you get there 

I may or may not post much for the next month or so. I have really tough exams coming up and not enough time to study.

Then again, the added frustration from sitting around studying all day may just fuel my need for a creative outlet and/or venting forum.

So we'll see.

(I do have some good stuff lined up though, stuff that I want to build up to before throwing them out there. So stick around.)

Turdbag I may be, but I have tabbed browsing. 

jesus, I've been writing a lot lately. And not one little bit for this site. except for that last little bit which was just me being nerdy.

I'm writing more because of an amazing little place called www.okcupid.com. (Check it out, you'll know if you like it. I advise at least doing the personality test and reading the faq) It's a personals site and it's free. And I can die happy now, because I never thought I'd ever have the privilege of wriing THAT sentence.

The point. The point is that I'm writing so much because all these cool people are sending me messages and I'm sending messages of my own. I'll post excerpts from some of the (my) more interesting correspondence once I get time to go through it.

My fav okcupid moment was when I uploaded photos and the site told me: "By the way, you're a turdbag for using Opera in Windows." That's just priceless.
