Happy new… Year… Or something.

Damn. This picture is awesome.

Today was… Long. Some of mums friends came round, we had a party-type meal, gave them gifts. The deaf anorexic, the diabetic with no feet and the one who had a nervous breakdown a couple of weeks ago after her son stole all her money or something. Gave them some keyrings, some superman DVDs and a teapot. They all seemed to enjoy themselves anyway, everyone liked seeing Terence, even if he did come out with comments like “Your shoes are huge, your feet must be enormous :D!”

I miss Manchester so much sometimes. Sure it’s less polluted here, but it’s not half as interesting. Most interesting things here this week is yesterday a police car pulled up next door, police went in and then left some time later and sometimes I see a lady and her partner go by, pushing a buggy.

And by that, I mean I see them go by at 1-2am. I wonder where they’re going, where they’re from and why the poor brat isn’t in bed. Noticed them because the buggy made a funny noise in the snow.

Mum’s discovered Scribblenauts. Maybe it’ll replace pic-pic, she’s almost done all 400 of the drawing puzzles. What on earth do I find for her to do once she’s finished all those! She refuses to go through and do them all again and Sliterlink is all in Japanese and seems to have many irritating cascading menus before you reach the actual game. Teraa ;_;  I only messed with it for two minutes before giving up though, I guess I should prod it again.

Being Human is on telly on Jan 10th and Survivors is on Jan 12th. Been updating my notes page with things I can think of. There’s a tab for it at the top. I need to remember to set the Sky+ for them, tried yesterday but it only goes up to the 7th. I think they’re on BBC3.

Emmy, for some reason,  has taken to sleeping downstairs on the box at the end of the sofa. (The sofa has a foot on it and at the end is a box/trunk that can be used as a seat, sort of. It’s got a blanket on it but it’s damn uncomfortable.) Dunno why. If I go down there for something, she follows me back up, but she’s also taken to asking to be let out of my room in the mornings. I guess she’s going through the teenage independant stage. She’s all skinny with long legs at the moment.

Oh and I taught her “beg” and “lie down” and “sit” earlier! But I think she’s getting them more from hand gestures than words. She’s not stupid anyway, took Bella seven years to learn “lie down” and that was an hour of me standing in the hall, saying lie down, kicking her over (gently of course) and then giving her the treat. I’m sure I’ve taught her something since we came here but I can’t remember what. Beg, sit, paw, lie down.

I remember now! I taught her to sit at “fip” instead of “sit”

Endless amusement.

New Years Eve.

The long new-years rant I wrote? Not posting it. xD I got so annoyed typing it out that I ended up slamming doors and shouting at people. Lets just say 2009 was a really, really, really shit year, and leave it at that.

Happy just-about-new-year! Lets hope it’s better than 2009. Not that that would be difficult.

Aims for 2010!!

1. Survive to 2011.  Seems a decent enough goal.

2. lrn2program. srsly. Motivation is the key! Problem is, I don’t get motivated unless I have something I actually want to make, and the guides are boring. I should make that Dwarf Tera keeps going on about. Make it awesomely over complicated and break all the rules Tera has carefully ingrained in his head. Again.

3. lrn2drive. Interestingly, Googling “lrn2″ brings up driving lessons, I thought it was a WoW thing.

4. Meet Tera and Chibi. Under not quite such awful circumstances this time hopefully. Although no circumstances could be that bad again.

5. Visit Finland again (Although this one is fairly unlikely it would be nice)

– 5.5 If I visit Finland at the right time, lrn2ski. :p Pavili promises she’ll teach me and Tera if we go back and there’s snow. <3

6. Keep this blog going as long as I can.

7. Stretch septum piercing one size up, maybe two. What’s the point of having a bull-ring if it’s all thin and weedy. Only restriction at the moment is money. Always money. :/

8. Get a tattoo. I’ve been considering it for well over a year now, time to find out prices. Same restriction as above, though.

– 8.5 Break it to mum. Took me like, two months to admit the nose piercing, tattoo is less easy to hide.

9. Go Polyphasic again, putting this off because I’ll have to ditch it if I go meet Tera again. In the long term, it’s fun but impractical.

10. Teach Emmy something useful, like “crap outside” or “don’t chew that” at the moment all she has is “sit” and “alert Koco I want the light off by barking at the light switch”

Maybe get another piercing, read more books, watch more tv shows. Finish watching Dollhouse and wait patiently for the next series of Dexter and Being Human (And Survivors!). Catch up on How I Met Your Mother and House. Play more Dragon Age and L4D2. Be more religious about mowing the lawn and doing gardening. Write a book and keep this blog going. Lots of shiny things.

 

Shiny shiny

I did something I probably shouldn’t have done. Is anything broken?

WoW – I got my hunter to 70, and my Paladin to almost 50 before my account ran out.

I paid my RO account, still not entirely sure why, it seemed like a good idea at the time. There’s such lag T_T But I get to run around with Onni and actually be useful again <3

 

It’s 2008, that’s slightly odd. Gonna take me a year or so to get used to that. Should I make a new-years resolution or is it too late?

 

Okay – I have thought about them, and they shall be!

Get rid of the stuff I always skip through on my playlist.Beat HeroesV.

Talk to Tera more.

Hug Onni for real.

I think those’re good for now!
