"Don't waste your time on me, you're already a voice inside my head." -- Blink 182 :: I Miss You
The Cure :: Just Like Heaven
Show me show me show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream, she said
The one that makes me laugh, she said
And threw her arms around my neck
Show me how you do it, and I'll promise you
I promise that I'll run away with you
I'll run away with you.
Spinning on that dizzy edge, I kissed her face and kissed her head
And dreamed of all the different ways I had to make her glow.
Why are you so far away
she said, why won't you ever know that I'm in love with you?
That I'm in love with you?
You, soft and only
You, lost and lonely
You, strange as angels
Dancing in the deepest oceans, twisting in the water
You're just like a dream, you're just like a dream
Daylight licked me into shape
I must have been asleep for days
And moving lips to breathe her name, I opened up my eyes
And found myself alone, alone, alone, alone above a raging sea
That stole the only girl I loved and drowned her deep inside of me
You, soft and only
You, lost and lonely
You, just like heaven

My Winamp likes SA a lot.
I don't think today is going to be good.
This is the most I can muster myself to do for this stupid 'holiday': "I Love You". I'm sorry for linking to the fullsize version, but the thumbnail looks absolute shit.
It has a meaning. Kind of. It has a reason for the image bit, anyway.
Sorry for the cliché lyric-adding to the comment.
Xtreme-G 3 owns my soul.
Well. On a timeshare. Because as mibmgd pointed out, lots of things own my soul. But this is on a par with Lotus II.
But... I'm in the third speed class now (750G) and... I can't quite control the bike any more... But the whole weirdness when you go through the sound barrier (I'm guessing that's what it is anyway) is really cool.
All I have to do now is complete the 750G class (with an 850G engine currently) and I can hit the 1000G class. x.x;;
Shadow -- One of the Elements of the Goddess Death, symbolized by the Mask. Shadow is the Element of mystery and intrigue, the flip side of everything. You're quite an enigma, and probably rather isolated. Even those close to you don't really know you, because there's so much going on in your head that they don't see. Some may not appreciate your introspection, but others will find your dark nature incredibly intriguing.

XtremeGIII is good.
Somehow I cleared all three tracks in my level with 1st places, although I'm not entirely sure how I did it, and it took several attempts (getting higher scores in previous levels means less of a pressure to do well in subsequent ones). The 1st on the third track of section one was a bit of a shock though. I was expecting fourth at most, next thing I knew, there was a little "1/12" as I shot over the finish line.
Not that I mind. I can buy good weapons now.
I've come to a conclusion.
If I wanna go somewhere, I'm going.
I don't give a fuck any more who goes with me and who doesn't. Who abandons me at the last minute. I don't care. I'm not going to run my life based upon the whims of others any more.
I've not been updating lately cause I don't have much to say any more.
You are one of the few out there whose wings are truly ANGELIC. Selfless, powerful, and divine, you are one blessed with a certain cosmic grace. You are unequalled in peacefulness, love, and beauty. As a Being of Light your wings are massive and a soft white or silver. Countless feathers grace them and radiate the light within you for all the world to see. You are a defender, protector, and caretaker. Comforter of the weak and forgiver of the wrong, chances are you are taken advantage of once in awhile, maybe quite often. But your innocence and wisdom sees the good in everyone and so this mistreatment does not make you colder. Merciful to the extreme, you will try to help misguided souls find themselves and peace. However not all Angelics allow themselves to be gotten the better of - the Seraphim for example will be driven to fighting for the sake of Justice and protection of those less powerful. Congratulations - and don't ever change - the world needs more people like you.

Well I think it's wrong, but *shrug*.
I had fun. :D I should have updated last night but I was really tired. Train journeys knock me out.
I bought a book at Otakkars then waited outside for Mark because I would have felt weird waiting inside after I just bought something... I'd have waited in the cafe but they didn't have any fruit juice, I was kinda thirsty and their coffees are expensive. Then we went to BK, then kinda dashed at a walk off to Mark's exam. I played Freecell whilst I waited for him. I forgot how EVIL that game is...
Then we poddled off to his room and sat and talked on IRC, then his friend dropped by and we all tried to solve these riddle things... Equally evil as Freecell. But more rewarding.
It shows your level of IRC addiction when you can sit face to face with someone, pass a keyboard between each other and talk... in the IRC chat room. And laugh at what one another were saying. And I'd not even been on IRC in a while... I went back though. -_-; I sense my life kinda wandering off again now...
Then we poddled off to the gig and queued, and some poor guy's mother was looking for him in the queue.
The gig was fun. Moneen were... kinda embarrassing. I liked one song of theirs (the third one - descriptive, eh?) and the intro of another, but the intros all went on too long and the singing was generic. Mark and I just pretty much talked through them.
Straylight Run were good, as I expected. I'd have been disappointed otherwise. We bought clothing during them though.
Brand New were good too. Although the first song they played happened to be one that made me cry when I watched it on TV the first time I heard it... depressing thing. It seems like most/all of their new album is depressing. But the old stuff was great, singalong and stuff. Of the ones I recognised, they played Mix Tape, Secondary, Jude Law and a Semester Abroad, Seventy Times 7, Soco Amaretto Lim. I kinda wanted them to play Logan To Government Center, which had got into my head a few days before, and I sorta wish they'd played No Seatbelt Song, as even that's less depressing than the other stuff they were playing.
Then we went and bought pizza and sat in the warm(ish) eating. Because it's fucking cold in Portsmouth at that time of night.
After that, we poddled back through the freezing night and sat on IRC for a while before going to bed. I slept on the floor because I don't like it when people sleep on the floor so I can sleep on their beds... makes me feel guilty... I quite liked the floor too. I had weird dreams. Although I think I rolled over and into the wardrobe a few times. And I fell asleep on my arm a couple of times too, and had to wake up and move it forcibly with the other arm.
Then the firebell went off in the morning. And then shortly after my mother rang. And then the alarm went off. So I got up and read whilst Mark slept more.
Then we grabbed an incredibly unhealthy breakfast at BK and then I went home.
But the train on the way home was one of my favourite ones~ Even if I didn't think it'd be a high speed one due to the fact it rattled and clanked... Almost got lost on the subway by virtue of apparently going back a different way to the way I went. Started laughing at a really weird announcer there too, who had the stereotypical BBC accent. Then I glanced to my right and saw this girl laughing. We caught one another's eye and started laughing again.
Then I got to St Pancras (apparently they're bringing the Eurostar station to there... which will be loud and scary once done) and bought a coconut milkshake. And then the train arrived, whilst I had my hands full of plastic cup with milkshake in and gamecube magazine. The ticket guy had to let me balance my drink on a pole when I got my ticket and YPR out, then he put them back in my bag for me. (No he didn't steal anything, there's nothing but tickets in the front of my bag. :P )
Then I finished my drink and slept on the train, got on the bus, went home and had beans on toast. :D
*staggers around like a zombie*
I'll be gone till tuesday night, not that anyone will notice on this anyway since I never post anything.
*lurches off to finish getting dressed*
All I have to say is: bleh.
Something has drawn you into darkness
in the past, and you're now trying to get out
of it. The darkness is already inside you, and
getting it out will be hard, but if you try,
maybe one day you can be who you want to be
again. Don't give in!!!
KareKano makes me feel very lonely.
I spent many years trying to find a book. The first sci fi book I ever read. I read the first two when I was in school, but never managed to find the third. Then when I got the urge to read them again, all I could remember was the basic plot, the main character's first name and his hair colour.
I spent a few nights up browsing Amazon.co.uk's science fiction book section, for about four solid hours per attempt, trying to find them. I probably drove Tim up the wall with my very vague description of the book, and probably Mark also. Both were very brave to try to put up with my attempts, although I don't think either were very happy about the fact I was so focused on it.
So perhaps you can imagine my surprise when, browsing through the bookstore in the Broadmarsh Center (shopping mall to anyone who knows fuckall about Nottingham) and looking for books for my niece, I stumbled across a book I recognised the cover of.
8, maybe 9 or 10 years, and I still recognised the cover immediately.
Never would have guessed the name of the book or the author though. All those late nights, and the book I was searching for was sat quite merrily on the shelf of a cheap book store, with some 10, 20 of it's fellow issues.
Only the first book of the trilogy, but more than enough.
I read half of it on the bus. I finished the rest at home. It's not the most challenging read ever, and I found myself correcting the grammar in places ("that comma would be better placed there, and he's misusing semi-colons so often..."), but it is still a good, interesting book. I understand it better now I'm not 12.
Having a reading age of 16+ when you're 12 may technically be a good thing, but it does not mean you are understanding the concepts of what you read. It merely means you can read the big words involved.
Of course, the big challenge shall no doubt be finding the second and third ones.
