Five Attempts

If you attempt suicide, make sure you do a good fucking job, don’t take five attempts

– Nicky Wire (Speaking about Princess Diana)

A BBQ, and a house full of strangers, oh what a day! Spent the day watching Nightmare on Elm Street 1 to 3, got very down in the evening and went for a walk just after midnight. It’s so nice being outside and not surrounded by people, listened Gold Against the Soul and headed back home.

I had avoided the shake-and-fake all weekend, but they got me when I returned, a mass gathering ambushed me on the way to my room … smile, “hi my name is …” (who cares), shake, walk. Not that I want to give the impression that I’m anti-social, I’m not – I just don’t like people.

Too Many Times

Things just seemed to go too wrong too many times

– Tony Hancock’s suicide note

Completed Half-Life: Opposing Force., The ending is in the same vein as the original, which I suppose keeps things consistent, but it’s a bit of an anti-climax to be honest.

Henman is playing Ivanisavic today, am I the only Brit who wants Henman to lose, come on – he has no personality. I hope Ivanisavic wins the tournament too – he has character, something ol’ Tim never will have. Go Goran, Go!

Housemates planning on a big weekend by the sounds of it, but I can’t be bothered with the shake-and-fake of it all.

When You’ve Got Nothing

When you’ve got nothing, you’ve got something pure that no one can take away. As soon as you’ve got something, some cunt’s gonna come and take it off you.

– James Dean Bradfield

Day off work today – feeling really ill, I think I’ve spent to much time in front of a computer screen this week. Did some cleaning around the house & went for a walk, felt a bit better after that. Haven’t been on the computer all day, definitely the first time I’ve been able to say that in a while.

The Challenge

Set myself a challenge: I have £100 to bet with, in exactly twelve months time I must have more than £100. To be honest, I’d be surprised if I’ve got anything left in a few months time. I usually place fiver bets so even if I do lose every time I can play for 20 bets, at the end of the day it’s [...]

The Freeman

Completed Half-Life, at last. It’s definitely one of the longest games I’ve played (excluding the Final Fantasy series of course); I like the ending, it’s very cool, but not all that satisfying, I won’t say too much here ‘cos I don’t want to ruin it for anyone who’s playing the game through [...]

Confession Time

‘Fessed up to Andrew about the little trick myself & Rebecca played on him last Friday, he looked surprised at first, probably in shock at how evil two people could be. I’m going to miss working at Hursley when I go back to university.

Sesame Street

Went to Bar Iguana in the evening with Ant & Brett; live band every Sunday – they even played a version of the Sesame Street theme!

Unreal Tournament Tournament

Went to the Hursley Network Gaming Event; knocked out in the first round of the Unreal Tournament tournament, but won a few of the single matches. Dropped round Paul’s house on the way back (and a very nice house it is too), met Shelly & had a few beers with Paul before heading back home. I’m [...]

The One About Rebecca

Ernest Hemingway once wrote, ‘The world is a fine place and worth fighting for.’ I agree with the second part.

– Morgan Freeman (Detective Somerset, Se7en)

Rebecca’s last day at work today, Andrew thought it would be funny to fake a mail from Rebecca, propositioning me. Funny guy eh? Well in the spirit of humour I responded to the real Rebecca, Andrew didn’t believe me; until she messaged him on Sametime (similar to MSN Messenger), apparently not all that happy. Andrew cleared everything up and all’s well that ends well, or is it??

MUWHAHAHAHAHAHA I have a secret too Andrew: I’ll tell you mine if you tell me yours; fuck it, I’ll (probably) tell you anyway!!

A Job Offer!

Good news, I got through Hursley’s recruitment process and I’ve got a job for when I finish university (assuming I don’t do anything really stupid in the final year that is). It’s Michael’s birthday today – happy 19’th shithead. You’re nearly old like me now, hope you like your [...]
