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!


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…

    It helps if you nab an assault rifle off of a dead guy at the beginning of the mission for when you run out of sniper rounds.

    Also, what DID happen to your fingers? That second image is a bit disgusting.

  2. Chris says:

    Well… I was sort of cutting something… then apparently I slightly caught my thumb… I didn’t think it was very deep… as it didn’t happen, I turned back to look at my thumb to see my hand and keyboard covered in blood, fun times.
    I tried the assault rifle front… but I just found myself never using it, so I just picked up a second Sniper Rifle. I think the main reason it’s hard is just because the crippled guy gives you no support, so you get blasted at from all angles, then run out of flash bangs…

    Right finally watched the damned video. Was amusing.
