Stoke was a great success, the only issues being the ones we brought with us and perfect harmony was had by all. We all sat round and got completely leathered on all sorts of drinks including a melon of death that ended up getting refilled at least a dozen times. Oddly enough nobody was exceedingly rough the next day, which was another great success! 

Looking forward to another such trip!

Would write more, but I'm too busy getting ready as I might be back into Liverpool tonight.

 I'm now single again, as it began it ends just as quickly.

In retrospect, I entered into this relationship for the wrong reasons. I expect, unless something amazing happens, I'll be single for a long while yet to come. At least until I find something that makes me feel something more than passing fancy. 

Sigh!

I've managed to get myself a girlfriend. I didn't even need the chloroform. Something must be seriously wrong. D:

Beach Party

Gareth's beach party was awesome. We built sandcastles, played football, visited the putrid waters of Formby, did several shopping runs and eventually ended up back at Gareth's flat for BBQ and alcohol. 

Now my neck's sunburnt and sore. 

Another plus was that I learned how to play guitar hero, since when I tried it on my own I got bored within about 10 minutes of being useless. It's deffo something you want to play with other people. Ended up an awesome laugh. Some of the pics are on Facebook, and I'll try and figure out a way to get Kims online too, since I want to see Adam's Trogdor the Burninator again. 

Now I'm off to the pub. 


Snappy in work?

I got told today in work that I had been 'snappy' lately. 

Whoops. 

Usually when I'm snappy, it's a bit of banter between me and the lads. Apparently though it's other people who're picking it up. Teachers coming in to pick up things, while I'm trying to work, is namely the times when people percieve me as 'snappy'. Amusingly enough though, one of the female teachers told me that she likes "this new feisty side" which I suppose is in no way similar to my typical "dicking about all day never serious" 

Weird thing is, I got told by one of the trainee teachers just the other day that I should be more 'wild' or develop a 'wild side'. 

Wat?

The Path
FMA

I know a couple of entries ago I said I didn't play many games any more, but I've been playing a fair few this past few weeks. My favourite of the bunch has been an Indie game made by, not a game developer, but a group of 'artists' from Belgium. The game is called The Path, by Tale of Tales.  

 

You know how when you give a young child a present and they proceed to play with it for ten minutes before moving onto the box it came in for the next few hours? Box forts, box hats, boxes to put other boxes in. Hours and hours of fun included in every single one. That's kind of what The Path was for me. 

 

A lot of the people who've reviewed the game have said that... well... that it's not actually a game. So many people have picked up on this point. The Path is not a game at all, it's an intelligently engineered piece of software that resembles modern art. A reviewer made an interesting point that even cinema is, these days, in the category of well aged literature and art in the fact that it can be deemed artistic or even have cultural implications. The question has to be asked, why can't software also find itself in this category? The Path, in my opinion, transcended everything I've ever thought a computer game to be and instantly planted itself into my thought patterns. The very nature of the game caused me to think very deeply about what I was looking at, listening to and various other things for example - the feeling you get listening to heavy rain on an empty road - immediately scerene yet so frantic. The path, instead of having a highly intuitive User Interface or a compelling plot, simply takes an abstract concept and proceeds to make it stranger and stranger. I'm not going to touch on much of what it's actually about save to link to the equally strangely designed website. Browse at thy leisure.

Also, my internet's back on at home. Woop. But for how long who can tell.

Just got internet back. One of the builders at the other house had managed to cut through a length of copper wiring called our internal phone cables. I told my parents as soon as I looked at the router "are you sure they didn't cut through any cables?", to which I got a tirade about how they're professionals my father personally knows. Yadda yadda turns out I was right. Quite funny like. In fairness to them they're like lightning. They'd only been on the job a week and a half and by that time they were already two weeks ahead of schedule.  Go builders. 

Gone back to the gym. Decided to give my body another go before finally cutting the funding to it. 

Other than that, not much. No need to worry about new music either - I was directed to an awesome Darkwave/EBM/Noise/Electronica radio station located at www.ampedout.net
