So yeah, Sunday was Max’s party Extrrrrrrrrravaganza!

The day started with me worrying if I was ever going to get there with my father waking up at 11:45am… I left, it was snowy… I arrived… I talked a bit with Lauren, Max and his sister who were there… it mostly consisted of talking about how Max has managed to embarrass himself… Sooner than later we left.

The trip there…. was a bit weird… not many people were talking so Max’s dad said, “So Chris, do you know why the ______ murderer killed his wife?” To be honest, I was expecting it to be a start of a joke…. it was not… I had no idea…. and for some reason I’m the one in the car that was meant to know about murderers… We sooner or later got to Ipswich… much to the frowny faces of Eliza, Chloé and Ben. Lauren was struggling to keep her balance.

There was a big hoopla about which Film we were going to see. Ben protested about seeing New Moon… I was decidedly silent. Because we were late, the screen was STILL quite full. So we ended up with the 3 boys in a row and the girls behind.

I didn’t really mind the film. The main thing I don’t like about the whole Twilight thing is the whole fangirlerism that goes with it. For example. The line, “Here’s Cullen…” was said quite early on… then it cuts to him walking in slow motion towards them his shirt billowing open… thought that was a bit silly…. The funny thing was at the end when he said that thing, a girl off to one side sort of swooned or girly “aww”‘d at it and everyone laughed.

The evil guy is DELICIOUSLY evil…. the slow motion was too heavy for its own good. Some bits added a nice bit of effect. Like when Cullen was thrown across the room then the guy was under him in slow motion grabbing him and slamming him into the stairs.

After the film the girls, and Ben, did the thing most females do and went to the toilet, leaving their infinite amount of bags with the boys with bladders of steel. Then we left the cinema….

We had 30 minutes to burn so we thought we’d pop into Costa or Starbucks. It being Sunday meant it had the early closing times… So Eliza suggested we walked back to the cinema by going pretty much the LONGEST ROUTE EVER! I basically viewed this as a walking self harm trip and froze enough that it felt like my hand may have to be removed. Basically… left arm had no feeling up to the elbow… both legs up to the knees…. yeah, that was fun.

We then got pizza…. painfully long discussion about that….

Then at Max’s house we painfully set the TV up to the projector (Lauren fixed it, unlike Ben…) and whilst that was happening I got an Xmas card from Chloé. We then watched The Hangover. We managed to cram, Eliza, Lauren, Chloé and I onto one sofa… a bit of a squeeze… Ben and Max on the other. The Hangover is pretty funny. The credits are a bit…. yeah…. it was funny cause there was a quick, “SHIT! Where’s the remote?!” As they were rolling and we saw Max’s family slowly approach and the image that was up was less than acceptable.

We ate cake. Then talked for the rest of the 45 odd minutes (I think). Ben left after just 15 of those minutes and he had given me his xmas gift pour moi. Being the C&H book “I’m giving you the finger” (Mum doesn’t approve of the content in there). Chloé gave me her present for me, which was a bit of a shock. I got “Hot Shots!” 1&2 in a box, which I have only just managed to free from the plastic wrapping.

After more talking I soon left, as I was leaving Chloé basically went, “Don’t forget your jacket, or Ben’s present, or my card, or my present.” and Max walked me out. Then before I left Max dashed up his room and brought down a present for me, which I’ve now fully eaten. I did feel a bit bad cause I went away with more than I arrived with.

I think that is the better group photo… looking at that photo… it looks like I have a really chiselled jaw…. but yeah…. as well as how god awfully skinny I am… that shirt can go in more…. and a GIANT Adam’s Apple…. and that I really need to start standing up straight….

Yesterday (if I can finish this blog in 55 minutes) I went into Town with Simon and Adam. Because my sister had something going on I got dropped off at Wickham Market station at 9:10 for the 9:55 train. The entire station floor was ice…. that sucked…. I listened to the FF7 soundtrack to accompany my feelings and read the C&H book. Eventually the train got here, I bumped into Ned on the train and we went to go find Simon and brought him back to the back of the train. Simon gave me a card that had £5 in… I didn’t have to pay any train fair cause she didn’t come and the gates were broken so they were perm open.

Adam was in 5 mins after we were and we walked a fairly long way into town. We went to Topshop so Simon could get some presents for people then into Boots where Simon bought bath stuff for girls then we played the “Search the shop for Tampons” game… whilst searching Adam and I found the condom and “Duplex Vibrations” section… which was opposite to the tissues…. a bit weird… I was thinking that we would be looking a bit odd to all the old ladies walking past….

We then went to Thorntons because I needed a present for my mum, which I think I’ve lost in my room somewhere… I think we basically ate… well, we went to Waterstones…. but yeah. We ate at Subway then got cheap drinks at Poundland.

We hopped off to the cinema…. and decided to watch Avatar in the poorly heated Screen 6.

Avatar…. I must say… was pretty awesome. We saw it in 3D. The story was pretty decent. It did have those moments where it was, “Why’d they show that earlier if it wouldn’t turn up later?”. The CGI…. HOLY CRAP! The CGI was amazing! too often I’d forget it was CGI. For ages I actually thought the blue people were real people… that the fire was real fire, the forests were real fire…. the plane/chopper/hornet things from Halo were real…. The hair… HOLY SHIT! The entire CGI about it was FUCKING insane!

After the 2.5 hour film and .5 hour adverts… the film ended. Adam had to leave for his train and so I was left to find Simon. He had left after like 30 mins of the actual film because he promised her he’d meet up with her to give her xmas present and stuff…. so yeah, I phoned him and he was in Costa… so I sped walked across the ice darting in between groups of people with my scarf around my face… I burst into Costa and then sat with Lauren waiting for Simon…

Things were a bit awkward but we talked about stuff…. mostly the day before. Simon popped down and Lauren had to leave… she wasn’t sure if she had gotten 7 or 9 bags on that day…. because she only had 8…. so then Simon and I were on a two person table together….

Through the entire Cinema bit of when Simon had left and it was just Adam and I, as well as the Costa bit with just Simon and I… all I could think was this.

So yeah, we went to the station and bumped into Josh Otter. He had gone to Cambridge for something and had been at the station a lot of the day. So we got on (1337) the train and found a spot to sit at… Simon was stuck next to some Asian woman… Josh flicked through the C&H book for a bit. The ticket lady came by, Simon paid for a ticket… Josh showed her his ticket…. JUST as we got to his stop. This meant she had to go and deal with the train… BANG didn’t have to pay! Simon and I moved to some chairs next to each other and then talked.

Got to my stop at Wickham then walked past Ned ‘n’ that lot and got a “Merry Christmas” from all of them. Then the day was done.

Today, I did sweet F A. I signed for a package for the first time in my life and it turns out for the small pad things I’m gonna need a smaller signature… cause I got ChrisSmed and then it sort of smudged into one. But yeah, Ben’s present has finally arrived… meaning I’m gonna have to give it to him WELL late, probs at the physics thing…. if he goes…

A side note, as I was writing this for well over two hours now… I went to get a drink…. I was SO happy to see my mum had thought, “Well, I didn’t get any apple juice last time, which Chris likes, and there was already a half full orange juice in there, which Chris doesn’t like greatly… So I’ll get another two Orange Juices…” Yeah…. That’s great… we now have 2.5 cartons of Orange Juice in the fridge….

I guess the next blog wont be until either xmas or Boxing day. See ya then!

With Summer as school kids know it coming to an end, I thought I may as well keep it neat and tidy and have like the last… 3 days or something.

Well, it’s been an un eventful 2 days… but then, oh well, I’m gonna talk loads about it anyway!

So Tuesday, with nothing better to do we went into town! By we I meant my mum, my sister and I. So, we went to town, did something, that I forgot… then they went to go do girly stuff and left me in HMV for about 20 minutes… I’ve never been so bored… SERIOUSLY! I looked at all the albums I wanted, starred at them intensly until the prices went down, didn’t happen.

I decided to check out the DVDs for a bit… I looked at the price of Flight of the Conchords Season 1, 2 and 1 & 2… then I looked at the films… felt a bit out of place cause I don’t care much for films… then I looked over to one side… and By Odin’s BEARD! AN ANIME SECTION! “BY GUM!” I thought, I went over to the… section next to it… then casually looked over… they only had Bleach Season 1 and FMA something that I was interested in… no Elemental Gelade… sad face.

EVENTUALLY they came back… and I got two new snappy T-shirts from HMV! A superman T-shirt (to add to that underline of Comic geek) and a Space Invaders one (To add to the bold letters above my head screaming “THIS BOY IS A GEEK! STAY AWAY!”). We then went to CEX where I bought IRON MAN on DVD for 5 POUNDS! We then ate at Subway and got cheap drinks from Poundland… (2 for a pound… steal) we then headed off to… THE COMIC BOOK SHOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah! It was the first of the month… but I just decided to drag them over cause I thought it wouldn’t be here by now… I looked around for some comics that I may be interested in… No Deadpool stuff I wanted… sad face… I may have to try and look into some Venom stuff… cause He’s sexy… I asked the guy at the till when the new comics come in… turns out it is every Thursday (or the first Thursday of the month for the monthly stuff (I dunno)) or a Friday if it is a bank holiday Monday Week. Coolio.

Speaking of Comics! Old news now, but Disney bought Marvel for 4 BILLION Dollars! Mostly for the film industry part, I mean, Iron Man 2 is thought to make shit loads of money… People are blaming Stan Lee… but he is retired… he’s 86! It would’ve been an idea to have some Marvel Shares cause Share holders got a nice pay out… Really, this wont affect the Comic book industry… unless they decide to stop shipping to Europe… (gay). It will be good for the Marvel Animated stuff… cause Disney’s animation department is very decent… like movies and cartoons…

So… after that… I headed back to HMV cause I didn’t spend anything and bought Season 1 of Flight of the Conchords… I think we then got some Ice-cream and went home. Mint Choc Chip (white Mint Ice cream…).

Today we went to play some Badminton.

Since yesterday and to this afternoon, I’d been watching the first season of Flight of The Conchords… and it was AWESOME! I’m glad I bought it! I now need Season 2… but I can get that some other time.. I need to slow down my spendings… Then I also watched Iron Man… I think the best bits, in terms of humour (which is what Iron Man is meant to have) is when he’s testing the starter bits of his suit, like the gloves and shoes… well, I thought so… It is a good movie… and bad at some points… but yeah, I like it. I mean, IT’S FUCKING IRON MAN DAMMIT!

Then… well, I did this!!!!

I did have Love Fool by The Cardigans first… but that was copy righted… so I had to go with some other stuff… and this wasn’t what I chose… but what ever… Call him, he’s single 😉

So, School starts tomorrow, and only just now, as I typed those words thinking about a possible early night did I realise that, OH SHIT! SCHOOL IS StARTING SOON! ah… whatcha gonna do…?

So, see you tomorrow, or Today!

Well, sucks to be you if you are wondering what on earth I’m on about. You’ll have to wait.

Okay, so, Wednesday we went to Norwich to do some shopping. I prefer Norwich to Ipswich, just because it is cleaner and it all seems so much nicer. However I have no idea where to go. Most the shops are in a big mall like thing, it is all the other shops that are scattered about because they are so giant (for GIANT doctors). I just got another snappy shirt cause I needed another one. We ate at pizza hut and actually had stuff that didn’t cost like £1, we all had some chocolate milkshakes that were awesome. Really, that was it for me, it was actually REALLY hot, which sucked largely. BUT. I did get a new phone! Where I have given the background as Deadpool with a chainsaw. Well, I have remembered my number in one day which is odd, my old phone I didn’t know it after 5 years.

Thursday we went to a much less happy place, well, more of a hell hole. Ipswich. Well, my mother and sister went to go shopping for school shoes, so my brother and I went to geek it up. I got Ghost Rider on DVD for like £2 and then we went to Central City Comics to browse the comics there. This is where my title comes in, I like the character Deadpool. So, I bought issue 2 of Deadpool: The Merc with a Mouth and then got a subscription for it, so I know get to go into town once a month to pick it up. I need to buy back in that series (only 1) and in the Dark Reign: Deadpool series which I have issue 12 of… so yeah, geeked it up OLD SCCHOOOOLL. Afterwards we soon met up and ate at… Burger King, I only got through half the meal and felt REALLY ill, stupid Grease block that forms…. it was awful. My mother and sister then went to do… Girly things…. so my brother and I aimlessly wandered around until we were to meet up. I then got to walk about aimlessly a bit whilst my brother and sister got their hair cuts, but I settled for reading my comic and playing snake on my phone.

FIRDAY. We went to Aulberugh (?) for some fish and chips. Alas, it is now late summer so there are wasps FUCKING EVERYWHERE. I most of what I had, but my drink, a can of cloudy lemonade, had to be sacrificed… I got a wasp on my lip as well… creepy. After skimming stones and burying my sister fully in stones (if I could upload pictures from my phone I would, but I don’t have the right cable) we then went to get some ice-cream from a different place, but owned by the same people as the Fish and Chips. I had Mango and Blackcurrant Sorbet… which was fucking insanely tasty. Then getting attacked by more wasps, we went home.

Well, now that I think about it…. I did Friday on Thursday and Thursday on friday, so just swap them round and you have it.

After Ipswich (on the friday) we went to tesco, so my brother, sister and I just all stayed in the car listening to loud music and playing games and reading comics… well, that’s what my brother and I did, but we were sitting in the cool seats (the passenger and driving).

My grandparents also turned up on Friday, yay. I was pretty much the only one to talk to them when they came here… but even that wasn’t for long. Basically, I spoke to them, they gave me my present, my mum told me to take something away, then I avoided them the rest of the weekend. “What did they give you?” I hear you ask? Well, simple, I got… FUCKING CHRONO TRIGGER ON THE FUCKING DS!!!!! SUCK ON THAT BEN!!!!!!!! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!

Over the weekend I finished Jak 3 (just another game to add to the growing list) and then I think I half heartedly played maple… it’s lost its shine.

All this week I was expecting to do something, but that didn’t quite work out. So instead I finished Final Fantasy 7 for the 3rd time at level 70 and 60 hours. In short, I started playing Sunday again (basically the start of Disc 3 (last disc that only has the final dungeon and extras on)) where I spent the entire time racing around the world chasing after Ultimate Weapon waiting for it to stop so I could beat it up some more. Then trying to breed Chocobos. On the monday it turned out the guide was unclear and the chocobo I was trying to breed was bad not good… so I had to start again, I then spent an entire day just breeding chocobos and racing them. Thankfully the W-item glitch helped because it means I can easily duplicate use items in battle, which I needed to do because the greens needed costed 5k each, and I think I used…630… so yeah. Really, Green Chocobo, Black Chocobo and Gold Chocobo (which I didn’t use for racing, yet) are the best for racing, cause they don’t slow down in space. Wonderful Blonde Chocobo is good as well. I then spent about a day training my people up and getting Omnislash (the awesome final Limit Break for Cloud) then I think wednesday morning I burned through the last dungeon killed one boss with no Knights of the Round, then the next without it then 1hko the final one with Knights of the Round, a bit over powered. Then I got the final final boss. In all… I FUCKING LOVE Final fantasy 7, and Sephiroth… Which is why I played it 3 times, watched Advent Children twice, watched Final Fantasy Last Order once and fucking loved it, played Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2 and loved the Cloud and Sephiroth bits and…. I just need a PSP so I can play Crisis Core… but hey, it’s an awesome game. See my twitter for the whole ordeal.

Because I finished 7 and I didn’t feel like getting to 99 and beating up Emerald and Ruby weapon then finishing it again in the same week, I continued my second play through of nine. I’d gotten to where I got to on my first attempt at a second play through where everyone was unleveled and sucky. I then got to the really hard confusing plot bit, which was a bit… woah, but I get it, I still like nine, cause I like Zidane and VIVI and I think Kuja is a pretty cool villain, apart from his look. I’m now on Disc 4 and after leveling on Grand Dragons for a bit, I know just need to do the final dungeon and add nine to the games I finished over summer. Then I’ll probably start 8… *shudders at the thought*

I also started playing Final Fantasy 12 because I hadn’t played it before and I ran out of games to play (plus Disgaea 2 requires more time to do much.). Personally, I don’t like it. The combat system is horrible. If you’ve ever played like WoW or really any 3D MMORPG, then it is like that, where you just select attack on the monster and just sit there as they trade shots for some time till one is dead. It isn’t turn based, so you just walk about and when you see a monster (no more random encounters 😦 ) you hit x then attack then the monster… you can tell your person to do other stuff, really your person is the one you have the most control over, cause you can move. The other people of the party attack on their own, with this “gambit” stuff. So you can set up a load of gambits on one person, so when allies are below 50% hp, the AI will use cure on that ally, it then attacks monsters closest… and that is really all you can do. You can set gambits in order of importance, so you have your cure one at the top, then attack. Because I guess you could have a black magic one above the attack, but at the rate you end up burning through MP, that would be a serious burn… I guess I am limited to like: Ally HP < x%, Ally MP < x%, Ally: )NAME HERE(, monster closest, monster HP equal to or greater than x%. I hope I soon get like, Weak to ____ element. Then I guess there would be a better use. Oh, and each Final Fantasy game has to have a new way of learning abilities. This one has licences. So as you kill stuff you get licence points which you can then spend on slots on this board that will have an ability or like HP + 50 or something, then the surrounding abilities are available. This is pretty good. However, you also have to do this for equips… so you all start with like leather armour 1 and a weapon, to then equip higher weapons you need to put licence points in there… and the problem is, the board is EXACTLY the same for EVERYONE. There is no difference between characters, you have to do that yourself, but everyone becomes a mage of sorts because everyone needs cure or you all die and the “Technicks” suck monkey droppings. That is another thing. They made this game seem racist. You start off in a desert area, and there is one guy who sits in a room, smoking a drug from some kind of bong whilst stroking a pink rabbit with a really thick stereotype middle east accent. At one point he says, “All the magicks in the rock is gone” I think it wouldn’t be so bad if they didn’t instantly have it sound like stereotypical bad grammar… Also, you basically have two forces (It’s star wars btw) you have the Empire, who are all American and evil. Then you have various rebel groups, and currently, most the people I’ve come across that are or will be in my party, have shitty british accents… Oh also, with the Technicks and Magicks, once you get the Licence for it, you then have to buy it from a shop. All the basic ones are fine, but the ones that are good (Technicks anyway) are expensive when they are available. The only way to make money is either by the bounty things which eventually become impossible for the strength you are at when you get them, or by selling monster drops. Yeah, monsters no longer drop money, instead about 50% – 75% of the time they will drop an item, “Loot”, which you then sell in the NPC shops. From there that bit alone, it just makes me feel like I’m playing an MMORPG. With the combat system bosses are hard… I recently fought a “Queen Mimic” where I, being able to move, stood under it (it was a giant robo-spider) and just wailed on it’s dangly Vagina (it lay new baby mimics from it) whilst everyone else got caught up on the legs and got completely raped. With the bosses, they are really easy, mostly, until you get them to 50% of their hp where they then use their big moves that stop you attacking as a small scene is shown, where you come back to see everyone on red hp or dead. It makes me wonder how it will work when you have, like, people bosses where they are completely surrounded by people wailing on them but still able to slace them in the face… Also, the weapons are stupid. You get the normal stuff, Spears, Maces & Axes, Swords, guns, bows, daggers. They also have, Measures (wtf?) which from the small pic, I think are just like engineer rulers… and Hand bombs… which I’m still wondering about now… but you don’t know who is to have what, so you just stick them with what they had when they joined, meaning you have about 4 people all using 1 handed swords and a shield then you just swap between light and heavy armour depending on what is near you. That is another thing with the licences, you find yourself only putting the points in when there is a shop nearby for you to see if you can buy anything to make it worthwhile. I’m sure it will get better. OH! The graphics of the FMVs are REALLY nice, like droolingly good. However, Vaan (pronounced Von (Like Yvonne)) outside of the FMVs looks FILTHY, his face around the cheeks and brow are just a dirty brown, then his six pack looks like they just got dirt and smeared it over them and then cleaned in between them… Fran looks like a rabbit whore cause you can see her underwear and the thing she wears is like an armour thong. Baltheir is cool but he has a crazy british accent but kinda sucks with his guns (and soon to be hand bombs till I can get it to the next guns bit). Oh, the bounty system is okay, I enjoy this kind of side quest. There are loads apparently, however, you pick them up at bars via the board or you clan leader (Montblanc (omg, just like in Tactics Advanced (it’s the same FF world, I believe)). However, you pick them up, then you have to hunt down the person that put it up, talk to them, they should then tell you where the monster is, but normally they will say, “I saw it south of the village somewhere on the bank” meaning you need to go to South Bank, but some of the maps are large and take a while to scan over, they are so vague. Then once you find it, you trade shots with it, its shots being stronger, then when it is dead you go back to the person to get your reward then BACK to the message board to pick up the next one. There is this one that I can do now that the monster is a bitch. My people have like 400hp – 500hp. This thing hits for like 200 -250 damage and at the start casts DOOM on everyone, and it has a 10 second timer… oh good. You have to hope that Doom keeps missing on one person so it just keeps trying as you slowly beat it to death. MOOGLES. The moogles and Chocobos in the game… well, I’d say in 10 and 10-2 they kinda ruined the Chocobos a lot. In 12 they do have a better image, one that looks like a more realistic version to the old school version. The moogles though. WTF! Moogles should stay the small white bears with a bobbly thing on its head. NOT a small furry child thing (that looks like a smaller Thing 1/Thing 2 from Doctor Zues without the blue hair) in a snappy waist coat and it’s bobbly thingy should be more bobbly and less fury! *sigh* I think that is it. Unless something pops to mind that invokes more rage-ahol. (this blog has taken me about an hour so far and it’s 2.5k words) A good thing with FF 12 is that the environments are busy. In most games it could be a big city, but you could only find about 10 people. This time, there are more people to talk to, but they also put a load of people who are just there. This gives a nice feeling of a busy city.

Hmmm, I think I had more to write… I know I have more…. but what was it… hmm… in the week to come I might be doing stuff, being from wednesday – Friday. What, I’m not sure… but something…

Spotify is very odd with its adverts. I keep on getting adverts for safe sex…

Yesterday I got my Explore 16+ card. My question is. WHEN THE FUCK WERE THOSE PICTURES TAKEN!? I mean really? They must’ve been in year 10, but I have no idea when they were done. I don’t remember it, I just have a picture of 14 year old me…

Today I’ve been really tired but I only went to bed at 2am and woke up at 6:45 cause I was talking to Max about ways about stuff. Then the day before was a sort of sleepless blur. Great, my music stopped…. Well, Spotify just crashed…. hmmm…

Oh, my brother finally got Assassin’s Creed back from his friend so I can now play that, so I look forward to jumping about stabbing people right in the face…. That’ll teach them. OH!!!! I just remembered something about FF12. It was a good thing!

Well, I’ll probably write another blog on the 27th unless something more interesting happens… OH MY FUCKING NONE EXSISTANT GOD! Look what I’m gonna be getting soon: Sexy

Lol, whilst getting that link, eBay said “Pokemon Cards” but the image was for Yu-Gi-Oh Cards… what nubs.

Oh, Ghost Rider…. meh really, it wasn’t great. But it wasn’t too bad. There was a plot twist that, wasn’t much of a twist and Nicholas Cage changed in age drastically from lying down to standing up. The female main was meant to be the same age… yeah… good luck with that.

There was no new Bleach Chapter today… WHAT A FUCKING JOKE! But at least the dubs are out of the mini filler and onto the story again. Luppi and people have gone back to Las Noches. Luppis’ voice wasn’t nearly as bad as I was expecting… on the other hand… Wonderweisse, fucking annoying voice. He doesn’t speak much, but just the voice… URGH!

Um, this was a very long blog post. Mostly the FF12 rant, I seemed to hate it more than I thought I had… I’m sure I’ll enjoy it soon enough. I am still in FF7 o = accept and x = back mode at times. Well, if you read it all, good job sir/Ma’am.

Seems I need…. 4 words to make it 3k on the dot…

There it’s zero now.

Well, You may or may not have noticed that I, as well as everyone else, has not posted a blog in near to a long time…. Most likely about a month, or even since the very last exam… in fact yeah, my last blog was Eliza’s party…. Which after a quick check, was like the 20th June. Now being the 5th, it seemed like a good idea to get this done first.

My excuse, well, to start with I felt like doing a daily thing, that never got done, then a week thing… same…. so now… this is a Bi-weekly or even tri-weekly thing… who knows, I may blog if something interesting happens… maybe. During this time I have had MANY a blog title name buzz round my head, (e.g. Wind, rain, shadow, wood, sword, thunder, power, sleep. Or, HENSHA A GO GO BABY!) but instead, all of them are ruined…. ALL OF THEM!

So, the first week, I spent my entire time watching Cardcaptors, which has thus spawned a never ending loop of the theme song in my head:

Whilst also doing bits of Facebook in between each episode. Because I am the physical awesome incarnation in the shape of a boy who FINALLY recently hit 50kg (7.87365222 for our imperial friends) after being about…. 45-48kg for about 3 years. Then during this week, I ended up going into town with some friends.

This was quite the enjoyable experience, I arrived at the train station in Campsee Ash (aka Wickham Market Station) then stood their wondering how on earth I get a ticket (TIME IS RUNNING OUT IS NOW PLAYING!!!!!!) so I asked a strange man…. On the train is where I get them. I bumped into some people going to Colchester… then getting on the train got a text Simon saying he was at the back. I got a £2.69 or something like that ticket for return and there…. cause I am awesome. Upon arrival we met Adam at the station then walked out to see Oli at the bus stop. We walked into town where Simon decided to tell us he needed to buy some presents, so we went into Boots to buy some perfume… well, he was buying it, we stood there chatting. Simon bought some “£30” perfume that turned out to be £40… Then we went to HMV where I bought a Silversun Pickups CD. I’ve taken a liking to them to them, especially this song:

After buying it I decided to see what the others were doing, playing Guitar Hero Metallica… which they’d both chosen Easy (By they, I mean Oli and Adam) and were doing a half crappy attempt… so Simon and I kicked them off to show our MAAAAAAAAAAAAD Skills, thankfully I picked the lead guitar, because whatever Simon was doing was just open strings…. the buttons were stiff on the guitars… the song was boring, they had the Guitar Hero 2 guitars…. meaning to activate star power you have to rotate about 180 degrees….. so from going like…. \ that if the top were the guitar, to / whilst still playing….

We went to a clothes shop because Simon needed another present, where no one bought anything apart from Simon who got a necklace for Lauren C. Then we went into another one trying to find a better thing… But to no avail. We ate at Subway like cool people do. I told them not to get a drink because you can get 2 drinks for a pound at Poundland. Which we did… We then headed toward the cinema where we stopped to buy a Buddha for Simon.

Along the way we decided to see which way was quicker, so Adam and Simon went one way, Oli and I went the other, we must’ve taken a REALLY long route, because they were at the front of the queue when we got there…. We bought our tickets, then bought some food and went to the screen. We decided to see “The Hangover” which I thought would be a sort of lamez comedy. Nah, it was quite good. It did have it’s moments of slapstick comedy, but I thought it was quite a good film. We saw quite a few good trailers as well. Like the new James Bond film… I mean Sherlock Holmes film… but he isn’t the Sherlock Holmes we all know, no, he instead has longish hair (looking a bit of a bum) makes witty remarks, seems to have lots of sex and gets into slow motion boxing fights with men with his shirt off and at other times shoots things that explode and then things with hammers and explosions and jumping out of windows…. So not James Bond at all, it looks good… I want to see it. We also saw the new Sacha Cohen film trailer… Bruno (but with an Umlaute u) this looks quite good as well… BUT it is an 18… so sucks to be everyone…

After the film we stumbled about a bit in the blinding light then headed for the station, where there was a bit of a broken gate so they didn’t work…  we saw Adam run off, a woman going down the stairs with a pram… with a child in… and then Simon and I waited for our train… and then we talked and stuff…

It was about this day that I started to play maple… none stop… Whilst playing Maplestory I have now watched all of The Inbetweeners (which is actually very funny, like Skins, but MORE real life) the last episode of the 2nd Season is pretty much the best, with some awesome quotes, such as, “You’re up early” “What’s early when you haven’t slept” and “Have you showered?” “Don’t be silly, you can’t revise in the shower, the BOOKS get wet” (at the end going high pitch) it is pretty good…. and then Black Books… spawned another blog title (Jam Jam Jam… Bleurgh! *throws on Ceiling*)  is just so awesome that everyone knows it… Next I’ll watch some Green Wing… then… I dunno, anime? More Cardcaptors?

NO WAIT! MORE 1st week, stuff that actually happened…. Monday I went to the Orthodontist… this was… okay… I was told that I need to brush more at the top of a tooth that is REALLY hard to get to without ripping off my lip…. and because he put the bracket so high… (what an arse) then I got wires VERY long put into my brace… which then spawned them stabbing the back of my mouth… more and more as they were tightened… I then got told that next time I visit, they come off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Then the receptionist said my next visit is the 3rd of August……… great…. because everyone loves that…. Also at some other time in the week, I went to get my eyes checked… I am SOOOOOOO Blind… without my glasses on, I can barely read the second line… as in…. I got 1 out of 2 letters correct…. so no change since last time, I just never really knew HOW blind I was….

This week, I’ve been playing maplestory non-stop… really because there is an event, where there is a quest where you have to spend 50 hours in a map, in 30 minute chunks because every 30 minutes something spawns, you kill it, leave the map, finish it, start it, repeat…. that is 100 30 minute trips… do you know how many I’ve done? 73…  that is 36.5 hours… on a map… a crap one at that… not training…. I obviously wasn’t just sitting there, no, I played pokemon excessively, I played TY The Tasmanian Tiger 2 (LOL) I played Viewtiful Joe (hence one of the possible titles) I watched things…. but yeah… it has been fun… At one point when someone was on to talk to (Max knows who (*wink*)) I ended up in some big “argument” with Irish man Sean, Florida Bethany and the Florida Bethany’s Mum…. about Religion… both believe in god, one believed in the bible (too much I say) the other just thought there was a god, I was the atheist in the pack… trying to keep the peace… this went on until like 5am… in which Florida Bethany went to sleep…. (sad face) and Sean and I stayed awake because 2 hours sleep just wasn’t enough… The next day, or same day, I ended up talking till 2am… then fell asleep to wake up with my calculator on my face….

During the week I made cakes again, for the critical part where I put them in the oven that I  didn’k know how to use arrived… I paniced, slammed it on Conventinal Oven, came back to find that there was shit loads of smoke…. my cakes weren’t cooked properly (were pretty much liquid now in the middle) in which I was later told we don’t use that one cause there is fat on the top heater…. which makes the smoke…. then Recently, I ended up being the one to put bread in the bread machine…. I did everything…. then I put in the yeast, I only read the 1/2 tsp out of the 1 1/2 tsp of of Yeast, so I had some HDB (High Density Bread) which was okay…. just a bit dense….

SPORTS! Well, Wimbledon has been going on. Recently Serena Williams beat her brother sister, Venus, in the finals winning the mens womans. Andy Murry played an EPIC match on day that went on till 11pm and went to 5 sets and it was just EPIC. He made it to the semis then lost against one of the more boring tennis players… Roddick…. all he does is just be a big server…. it is INCREDIBLY Boring…. So now it is Federer (Who I wanted to win just so he can get his title (Even though this was possibly the ONLY year that Murry could win) is going to beat Roddick senseless…

Oh, I also started to play Jak II: Renegade again, just because I remember them being VERY fun games, which they are…. I also found it amazing how just simple jump roll, roll, and jumps and kicks can make me happy thinking it is a bit like free running. The one problem is the spawn points have a tendency of being the beginning of the level…. which can easily piss you off… it is fun driving though… getting the police on your tail, on your hover bike thing that is nearly exploding, high speeds to a wall, jump off, bike explodes on the wall, then as you are in the air you steal the nearest one. ❤

I have finally ordered me some Speakers…. which is awesome

I also hear in the subs it is finally getting to the Ulquiorra fight with Ichigo!!!! SEXY!!!!!!!!!!! I may watch that one early…. The English dubs are getting there. I still need to watch 128 and 129…. but I’m getting there!

ANIME OVER!

I think that is really it…. I’m sure I had a bunch of pictures to put…. but I guess I don’t anymore….

I watched TV, it informed me.

So it is what? really late? 4am ish? I am not sure WHY I am here… mostly because I can…. the funny thing is… I haven’t done much at all. Within these 21 hours of being up….

Well… when was the last time I blogged? Wednesday… so where better to start than Thursday? NO WHERE!! That’s where! Well, Thursday meant we went to Ipswich for some shopping and stuff…. It didn’t start out very well with my mum doing the thing she normally does… Then she fell out with my brother…. We started to look at shoes because… pleh… I decided to go with some £40 converse which are sooo awesome!!! We didn’t buy them then and there… no, instead, my brother and I got to stand outside New Look for about… 15 minutes or something… We weren’t the only ones… on the other side of the entrance there was another Teen-aged boy standing there looking bored out of his face… They didn’t buy anything….

It was soon lunch…. we wouldn’t go to Subway (for some odd reason) but we still wanted to eat cheap… we eventually went to BHS and got paninis and I got very hot cheese over my thumb…. Afterwards we actually bought things… I got my shoes which actually turned out to be £35…. I got a new bag due to my old one having holes in (which the outside one I may have done….) and that cost like £20. I did see some hoodie thing that I wanted…. that had SOME colour to it as well… but… it was only in sizes Large through to eXtra eXtra Large…. and my mum didn’t feel like buying me anything else… clothes related… even though I have none… and my sister has loads from Tescos (I would like decent clothing). When we went to Gamestation I searched through ALL the DS games to find no Chrono Trigger DS… I was shocked… it was a new game… “What the crap?!” I thought. I went to the til and asked if they had some… turned out… one of the people at the til were leaning on a pile of them… I decided not to get it… at £30 pounds and have already spent £55 plus lunch of my mum’s money…. I thought otherwise… my brother did buy Army of Two (we know it is a crap game) but more on that later… CEX (aka the super secret shop), that is no longer much of a secret, actually had a 2nd hand PS2 and PSTwoo. The PS2 was like £45 and the PSTwoo was £55… Again I thought, “I’ve spent too much today… maybe another time”. so we left after my brother bought Memento 3 Disc special… for £3.

Upon arrival back home my brother and I went to go play Army of Two. Now the reason we got this was because it is meant to be half decent in co-op… and we needed a cheap co-op game to play seeing as we have done everything else and he doesn’t have his Xbox Gold account right now… My views on the game… is LOL FAGS! Yeah, the characters are so gay…. you can go up to each other an press the “A” button (Also known as the “X” button on any Playstation Controller) and then they will do something with each other… like, air guitar… or go, “Awesome man!” “You rock dude!” whilst either doing the whole respect thing or the hand locking and arm locking thing…. one thing my brother and I found offensive was when they said, “Lift up your shirts!” But when there are only South Affircan men about… and each other… that is not the best of ideas…. I mean, you can do this ANYWHERE, like in the middle of being shot at… you can also press one of the triggers and they will headbutt each other or something…. There is this weird “Back to Back” thing, which pops up at random moments… and pretty much makes you invincible. Why? It is all in bullet time but you can still spin about at a good pace… and your bullets are faster… So, I guess, it is fun to shoot the bodies as they slowly fall down and see all the crazy ways they fall… but… there is no indication of when you are suddenly out of it being shot at…. another thing which I see pointless is the Co-op Sniping.. this is both players sniping at the same time… then you have a countdown then shoot at the same time… we were told to do this ONCE so far… and that was to shoot a gas tanker far away… I, instead, just shot it from afar with my AK-47 and it exploded… what was the need for co-op sniping?! There are also a lot of MANLY scenes where you will get small clip of them either tearing down a pillar by a chain… or even pulling down a door…. They are so totally not gay…

Another… fun (?) aspect of the game is that you can change your weapons… like put better barrels on them.. or more rounds or a stock… one of the more pointless things is what you can put on the front of the gun… you can attatch a grip to EVERY (pretty much) machine gun… the next thing in that part is… a freaking shotgun…. yeah, you can attatch a shotgun ONTO an AK-47…. it gets better… the next one up and final is a grenade launcher… Also, with the barrels… most of them just make it longer (funny with sniper rifles) and then when you put the large surpressor… it makes it longer… so eventually you will end up running about with a freaking long AK-47 with a grenade launcher attatched to it… a weird looking stock on it and then a pair of testicles for rounds (the highest rounds (120) is two circle faces prisms on each side of the gun but a bit lower. It looks like a pair of balls) You can also add some weird looking shield to it as well… then, there is the “pimped” option which will change your once beautiful wooden AK-47 into a gold and diamond monster of homo-sexuality and over compensating… you can also ruin any good uzi, sniper rifle or pistol with the above… but they have slightly more limited stuff to them…

Overall… it is okay… but has the sort of plot that is, “go over to Africa and kill them.” “Why?” “They said you look silly with your backwards hat” “Those bastards!!!”.

wow… 1103 words in one day….

Friday (I’ll try to be short) invloved early badminton… which was fun… I managed to return one of my brother’s smashes… and he can beat Ned…. sometimes…. but yeah, it was very much so, hit it towards my sister and she misses, hit it towards my mum… or in front and then Make Chris have to run to the drop shot then all the way to the back of the opposite corner to return the shot…. it was good none the less… the old racket I used was REALLY old….

After a hasty lunch we went to the Dentist… the new dentist because the old one hated us… This new one… is a freaking lovely man… I mean, I have had these white lines on my teeth for over a year or something… then only today does he tell me it is because that is where the enamel has lost minerals… (not a bad thing) and he said he could fix it when my braces come off… probably for a price… he also showed his obvious hatred towards Orthodontists…. Not much else happened in Friday…. apart from we had kebabs ❤

Today, Saturday, was nothing special… I played a bit more of Disgaea 2… died after getting far in the annoying Item world… mostly after I accidentally threw a Prinny (a monster) that was level 70 with like 18k hp into a group of my people…. Prinnies… explode when thrown… so my people, level 16, all died…. “Why was there a level 70 monster when you only have level 16s?” You ask? Well, my highest, being Adel (who is awesome) is level 19/20 and the Prinny was a pirate… for some reason… and I was meant to kill him to get the treasure map…. but that wasn’t an option… so I exploded him….

Oh, I can regretably say… I have started to watch Naruto *hangs head in shame* Once I get past the voice… it is okay… but everytime he says “Believe it!” it makes me want to punch the nearest Nun-kitten with ducklings in the face…. oh well… it has also aired my hatred towards Mega Video… how I could watch… 60 minutes then go off for like… 3-4 hours… but then half way through an episode it will go, ” you have watched 72 minutes of video today, please wait 54 minutes until you can watch more. Or pay here to get unlimited.” I think, “AWWW BULL SHIT!!!!” and sulk…

Oh, I also ordered Bleach Season 1 for £16… it has 5 discs… and buying the 2 or 3 discs normally… would’ve cost me like £30….

Maybe I should sleep… but then why sleep when it is so close to the morning.. 2 hours of sleep IS a good amount, right?

Tomorrow… is going to be homework day… D= only from like 22:00….
