Don’t understand?

Now you do, so go get struck by lightnin’ knowing we have a cure!!!

Hey, I think Ben probably had some as well, what with those side effects… 😉

Okay, so it’s been the first week of school… a week ago, but first… something completely different:

On the wank bank holiday monday… thing… wasn’t one of them, just on the monday… my sister bugged my brother and I to go to the park. We went, she fell over a ball, got in a mood, things eventually picked up a bit… went home, SCENE!

The Tuesday that followed was the first day back! Things seemed pretty good. People actually seemed happy to see me. I got a few bits of work done and physics was quite good, although it looked disasterous with the experiment calculations… until the very end when we were ACE!

The wednesday was when things started to go down hill… The morning, before registration was somewhat depressing… for pathetic reasons. Then we had an assembly… where I got crushed between Jagger and Tom… and lost a leg to Ethan… Not fun, I forgot what it was about… oh yah! House Captain shtuff!

Then the wednesday carried on… getting worse and worse. Sadly there was no Archery either… so I was left to be bored for ages. I spoke with Yasemin and Peeps for a while, then went into Fram… and bumped into my sister… AWKWARD! We then decided that it’d have to be stealthy to get back to the school without my father seeing me… mission accomplished as he was slightly late…

The thursday was pretty deathly as well.. I can’t say I had fun either… It was a double Biology lesson, and I can’t really understand the stuff we were doing… we were doing DNA changes in Bacteria… where the text book goes into SO MUCH detail… whilst the revision guide manages to summarise two pages into about a paragraph… and it’s so much more precise…

The friday got a lot better! The lessons were crap at the start, like Chemistry… get my mock result back (more on that L8R) but lunch was pretty fab! I was hanging out with Joel Gibson and Calum Johnson when Chloé came down to talk to us because Eliza and Rose were missing. Then those two came down and we were all talking and stuff… it got too hot so the girls went to have a walk… then the guys (us) went on our own.

We bumped into each other outside the english block and talked more and did stuff and it was a really nice Lunch time!

Maths.

Period 6 was also pretty awesome! We were out on the field, so getting the nice feeling of summer in while we can! It was good to have the Friday Period 6 club thing again, cause it felt like we hadn’t had it in AGES! The main problem was one thing that just didn’t do anything the entire time…. some may guess who… ARG! My limp wrist hurts!

I went into the weekend feeling pretty good! Turns out… I was a mad man to do so. The school posted my mock exam results to the house…. ARG! My dad saw and apparently wasn’t happy… Apparently I’ve made him mad, and he even crossed out all the Cs under my predicted grades and wrote “A” next to them… as a “friendly” reminder that he hates me and that I have to get an A in everything… nom nom nom, can feel the love. I think the main reason was cause I got a D in my chemistry Mock, but I really didn’t get it at all. Maths got a B and Biology got an A… Then Physics… D… *cough*

Anywho, ignoring the unhappy family, as I normally do, I started the game of CoD4: MW. Starting off as Soap MacTavish I played the time trial thing about twenty times before setting out on my first mission on “Hardened” difficulty… playing on Veteran will be for a later time… So I just went on the one below it… Anywho, I was so on edge for that first mission, running out and thinking I’d failed as I slowly began to slide out the helichopper.

I have to say… the S.A.S missions are SO MUCH BETTER than the American ones. Although when you die in the America ones with the nuke (Spoilers btw) that was so… like… WOAH!

Anywho, I’m currently a bit stuck… I’m currently Lt. Price and Captain MacMillan got crippled my a falling Helicopter. We are currently waiting for a chopper to get to us… I can do the first wave of people… but the second wave is like… INSANE! Captain MacMillan rarely shoots anything… so the tree I’m hiding behind could have like 5 people shooting at it… he’ll ignore that and shoot off in the corner. That’s one of the main problems, people sneak up on you easily just because there are so many people (like 100, or more) and there’s only 1 of you… so you have a lot on your plate… I’ve managed to get the chopper to land… but each time I’ve JUST died… but as far as I know… it lands on the opposite side of the fucking map as to where Captain MacMillan is… It’s like… SERIOUSLY, wtf? How do they expect me to get him over there whilst I’m being shot at by 30 people.

I’ve also been playing the Special Ops with my brother on MW2, on Veteran (cause we’re hardcore!) which is pretty fun, the snow mobile race was quite fun just because you can shoot at people on the snow mobiles and they flip off….

It does seem with CoD4 that as you get further in the campaign, your partners do less and less… too often they just stand there… or on the other side of the map as I go forward to the objective… hoping for some back-up. Mostly as a confidence boost, I can normally deal with people quite well, it’s just at the start of levels when you’re not in a good place it’s hard… to shoot everyone, stab dogs… break the dog’s neck (i’m getting quite good at it now, REALLY satisfying)

In pokemans I’ve also gotten a hold of all but one Gym Leader’s phone numbers (FUCK YOU BLUE! You require so much work!) and then with my plucky party of low level 60s… I thought… “Can’t be TOO hard to beat a guy who’s party is made of high level 80s” Turns out, read is really quite hard… Mostly Lapras… and to get things to work so I have an advantage… I need to be SO lucky! Lapras and Venasaur are difficult… Venasaur could probs be done with my Feraligatr’s Ice Fang when it has the Choice Specs on, but  Red rarely sends out Venasaur without me killing Lapras, which just has so much HP… that it can survive a pretty decent Discharge from my Ampharos… might be able to survive two even…. I just need it to paralyze Lapras and I could win…. cause then Ampharos could get another move in before the Lapras does (which would kill Ampharos) . See the bind I’m in? I could train my pokemon a bit more… but I’m so tired of having to climb Mt. Silver… just cause of one room where you spiral around and around and around….

Tactics of battle aside…

Today was monday! (Nearly said Yesterday, LAL). It was so-so really…We did a practical in Chemistry, I got 10/10 marks on one bit, and 13/15 on another , that with my 14/15 on the other bit puts me at 90% overall for the coursework, which is nice.

Then the rest of the day has consisted of this:

Bloody Finger Painting

That’s not paint by the way….

Bloody Keyboard

All the stuff on the keyboard that looks weird… is blood… nothing but blood and keyboard… there’s now blood in my keyboard, GO ME!

I had an accident… and it bled for over an hour… and then it opened again… bled for 30 mins… now it opened AGAIN!

And seeing as I forgot, I also put my name forward for House Captain of Hitcham today… I know I wont get it, I just wanted to do it… because I felt like I should… being one of the only boys in the house with a brain cell… that doesn’t do sports or stuff…

That’s what Ben said! OH!!!!!!!!!!

First off, Pictures for just everything… and their appropriate captions and hover over titles.

THE MOUNTAIN OF WASHING!

Capable of crushing children

THE TOWER OF WINEGUMS!

Capable of giving Diabetes from 200 yards

All that remains of THE TOWER OF WINEGUMS

Taken down in a week, they never stood a chance

And then Pokemon Goodness

Lugia Statue and Pokewalker

So on with this week of apparent AWESOMENESS.

Monday! The family, my sister, my mother and I, went to Ipswich. We walked about… ate…. somewhere… oh Milkshakes! I got bought a new shirt and some new Jeans! Which I’ve been told, by Calum Johnson, I look quite stylish in. NICE! Then when sister went into the hair dressers to get her hair cut… I went from Tower Ramparts… ALL the way to the comic book shop, picked up my subscription plus two additional comic books and made it back (it was like £35 of comic books) to the family and my sister was still waiting… there was only one person in front of them… AN OLD LADY! So I went out again, I was planning on going to HMV, but I started to walk the wrong way. To avoid looking like a fool I cut down into the road with Costa, Starbucks and Waterstones and then went back and up right next to HMV. I bought Weezer – The Green Album. Made it back and OH HO HO! Sister still hadn’t gone up… I sat and read comic books…

Tuesday! I went to the cinema with the family, Brother, mother, sister and I. We saw How to Train Your Dragon, in 3 D! Some of you may think, “That’s a kid’s film, grow up.” To you I say, “no…”. I actually enjoyed How to Train Your Dragon LOADS! Towards the end I got a bit teary eyed and feared I would make a fool of myself in front of my family…. but thankfully we were wearing 3D glasses. I thought it was GENIUS!

Wednesday. Dentist… He told me the same thing he told me last time. The top of some of my teeth have demineralisation, it will then flake away like this *Scrape scrape* and if bacteria gets in there it will then decay. My thought, “STOP SCRAPING IT OFF THEN!” when he scrapes it off…. it just looks really ugly… I preferred the white of the demineralised stuff. It was small and barely noticable… I also need to wear my Retainer LOADS more… I rarely wear it now… which is bad, obviously… when I get round to putting it on, either the retainer or my mouth have moved a bit… so I put it on, and it pops off, so I sort of have to bend it a bit to get it to fit, then I can’t talk at all without it flying off… so I only rarely do it at night.

Thursday! Thursday was that day that gets its own paragraph. I went into Ipswich. I got the train at the station, then BLAM! I met Calum Johnson on the train. Which was fun. Then upon arriving, I met up with Ben and we were a bit weary about Max. Neither of us looked at twitter before we left… We waited at the station, went down to the cinema, back up to the station… decided he wasn’t coming…. then watched Clash of the Titans, we eventually got a text back from Max… half way through the film, glad I have my phone on silent. After the film Ben and I ate at subway then went to look at geeky stuff like games and comic books at Waterstones and the comic book shop. I bought three more Ultimate Comics: Spider-man meaning I now have all the ones they’ve released. I like the series already, although MJ is a bit of a bitch…. We then walked around aimlessly… Ben went to HMV…. and bought Lady Gaga… Fame Monster, yes, that’s right… LADY GAGA! Then we went to the bakery, I quickly stole the last caramel donut thing, so Ben had to settle with asking how much the cow and sheep cookies were. Then getting bullied by old ladies, I left when he said, “Baaaa” when they said, we’ll give it to you if you make the noise of the one you want.” Turns out, the cookie was horrible, win… for me. We went back to the station and met Calum Johnson, who had been with his new girlfriend all day. Got the train. The way back was… interesting. Calum and I cba looking around the train for seats so we waited in one of the middle bits by the doors. Then about another 8 people got in, plus a bike. Plus old people trying to move in and out… plus an old person saying “That’s a tricky thing” at the automatic door, she was standing in… it’s really a simple open and close mechanism…. I was off… and the day was over.

Today, Friday, I went to Aldeburgh. With mother and sister. It was windy… so we got fish and chips… and ate them in the car. THEN we got Ice cream, and ate it in the car. I had Chocolate Brownie AND Pink Grapefruit Sorbet…. Man that sorbet was sweet AND REALLY sour.

The day was over and here we are. Not much has happened over the last week.

Oh, I’d manged to write a whole load, but then afterwards I stopped writing… I could do some soon. I might do some, granted some people don’t start talking to me again (Max knows).

There’s not even any random stuff at the end… I think… although when I listened to the Ok Go Album, Of the Blue Colour Of the Sky, I realised how I don’t hate any songs on the entire album…. and how I really do love that album.

I also started to play Mass Effect, there’s crap loads of side quests to do on the Citadel…. like CRAZY! My xbox gamertag hasn’t updated yet, nor my raptr profile, this is cause my brother’s xbox hasn’t been connecting to the Internet most the time, this is cause our Internet SUCKS kaboodle…. so my Xbox Live Silver account hasn’t contacted the internet. Mass Effect is pretty good, I’m getting used to killing things, I’ve still got that sort of “I’m INVINCIBLE! *Bang BANG BANG* crap! I’m on low HP!” thing going… like when we were shooting up at the strip joint… I died against the turrets… although after that and going back… is it bad I used my sniper rifle to ogle one of the ladies… then accidentally sat in the seat for the alien lap/table dance thing, where you can “<Relax>” “<Sit up>” “<Leave>” where the first two just change the camera angle… I know right… anywho.. I’m NEARLY done with the Citadel…. NEARLY…

I’m Popular!

Posted: 10/04/2010 in General

I guess there is a somewhat hidden Irony to the title, but to avoid the stupid “Oh woe is me” that seems to follow me, it is actually due to this song by Nada Surf:

So, I seemed to have forgotten what’s happened over the last…. month, possibly (yes) on purpose. Oh ho ho. Not like anyone cares. (OH WOE IS ME!)

In short, I got the results for the mocks. Maths, I shockingly got a B, 66 Marks. I got one mark better than Barny, so I’m pleased (as well as the highest in the class… but never mind about that.). Physics… I got something like a D… which is quite bad. I think I would’ve done better had I read the last question properly, instead of getting the respectives of Horizontal and vertical the wrong way round. (Making words up is fun.) In Biology Jim and I got the same mark, 73% (As) causing hatred from those around us. Then for Chemistry… I don’t think we got that back yet. I get the feeling I did really badly… I swear I remember getting a mark I’m not proud of… but I may just be having some foresight about it.

In Chemistry we also had the last bit of our Chemistry Coursework thing. It was only out of like 10 marks, I think I got about 8. Just because it’s a moderate guess. I think that’d put my coursework for Chemistry as a B overall.

It’ll be ages until we get our Biology ISA results back. We also had a Biology end of unit exam, I didn’t revise for it. I think it went okay, find out at some point. Oh yeah, I actually did do a bit of last second revision for my Biology Mock, hilariously… none of the stuff I read actually turned up, except one bit… but I got that wrong LOLOL.

I also got Pokemon on a Thursday, I got a text from my brother at the start of the day. Boosted the day 10 fold. So I’ve played that a whole bunch, I’ve got 16/16 Gym Badges. Beaten the 1337 Four on my first attempt, although it’s now gotten much harder and all my level 4x pokémon are struggling against the high 50s as well as the 60s….  I’ve played like…. 56:14 of pokémon. Pokéwalker and all!

I’ve also managed to start and finish BioShock. It was quite good. The Big Daddies were annoying at every point in the game, the Bouncers being the worst. The final boss was pretty decent. Not sure what happened really, I shot it lots….

Um… Maplestory as well… That’s the main reason I’ve been away from my social life (Yeah…. as if that’s the reason I’ve had no social life (OH WOE IS ME!))

I was gonna put some pictures up… but I’m too lazy to do so, most have been on my twitter feed. Such as… DUN DUN DUN!!!!!!!!!

THE TOWER OF WINEGUMS! OH EM GEE!!!!!! The tower of winegums being a basic structure made from 24 tubes of Winegums, each tube containing 12 Winegums. The tower was made by having two tubes on each level, but each level being a rotation of 90 degress of the level below. Ooooo, that sounded stupid…. like a pen tower. Anywho, I finished it like Thursday…. so I’d eaten 288 winegums in one week, as well as 3 or 4 packs of Gummy snakes AS WELL as some other gummy things…. AS WELL AS more sugar… AS WELL AS two Easter Eggs, 6 Twirl Fingers and a small pack of Aero Bubbles, I’ve put on about 1kg… which isn’t much…. obviously… well, for some it would, but that just brings me up to a staggering 49kg… need to loose that. Maybe some more!!!!

I could’ve sworn that the last month could be summed up by more than 619 words… OH OH OH!

That’s right, My sister bought a Wii. Basically, we’ve been playing a lot of Wii Sports Resort, it’s the sort of thing when my brother and I are both better than her at EVERYTHING…. EVERYTHING!

I think I may have slightly slipped into insanity… I go to sleep at about… 1am only to awake again at 3:05 everyday to find my desk lamp on as well as my laptop up… and me on my bed. TV still on… It’s the sort of thing where I’ve been sitting at my desk… then looking at the clock, seeing it’s 1am… then waking up on my bed… SOME DAYS my trousers are off, despite having them on when I was at my desk… or the other way round….

My slowly shattering state of mind aside, I have done NOTHING this past week, absolutely NOTHING. Other than game… I swear to you all that by the end of the holiday, there will be pictures… Pictures of everything. the TOWER OF WINEGUMS! The remains of THE TOWER OF WINEGUMS! The MOUNTAIN OF WASHING! (It’s as tall as the height up to a door handle) and ANYTHING ELSE I TOOK A PICTURE OF!

HOLY SMORGAS BOARD! I thought it was Sunday, I was gonna say how tomorrow I’m going to Ipswich with my Family (well, Brother sister et mum, father doesn’t go out with us/me), Tuesday, going to the cinema with my family (well not really, see last brackets), Wednesday I’m going to the Dentist……………………. poop… Thursday….

You see, Thursday is so special it gets its own paragraph. Thursday… Thursday I’M GOING TO TOWN WITH MAX AND BEN! FUCK YEAH CHILDREN! Human contact! I am soooo looking forward to it… Then Friday (being far less important, so it has to stay in the shadow of Thursday) has something happening… I know SOMETHING is happening…. but…. I don’t know what…. AH HA! Now I remember, Fish ‘n’ chips at Alberugh (?) meaning… starting to eat, getting attacked by wasps, father swearing… then before you know it everyone’s angry and not talking to each other as my dad drives away in a rage, my mum complaining how she’s tired and my brother and sister being arses to me, so a normal family outing. (OH WOE IS ME!)

I was meant to write more story as well, and… I have… a whole 31 words extra… then I thought I should write a blog… because my life is just THAT hectic… my brain hurts…. not from thinking… or headache… but something…


Ah well, until next time. BLOODY HELL ITV! The sound was fine on 11…. now I’ve had to crank it up to 30… and I can still barely hear it…. and now it’s getting louder and louder….

I really need to loose weight, as well as buy some skinny jeans so I look sickly ill in hopes to make some people feel bad about themselves, which is why I’ve having weird thoughts of me being stabbed/shot/beaten up…. for the lulz, then wondering what to… when it all comes down to my mind yelling “Hit by a car”… I’m worried….
