[music |Waterproof Blonde - Just Close Your Eyes]

Deceived by my eyes and all I was told I should see
Opinions not mine, the person they taught me to be
One night in the dark, a vision of someone I knew
And in the darkness I saw, a voice say, I'm you.
Inside me a light was turned on Then I was alive

If you close your eyes your life, a naked truth revealed
Dreams you never lived, and scars never healed
In the darkness, light will take you to the other side
and find me waiting there you'll see, if you just close your eyes

Hearts uninspired, trapped inside somebody's dream
Too close to the fire, yet cold and so numb with the pain
But the fever has broken, and the river has run to the sea
Washed to the ocean, and saved by a voice inside me.
Inside me a light was turned on Then I was alive

If you close your eyes your life, a naked truth revealed
Dreams you never lived, and scars never healed
In the darkness, light will take you to the other side
and find me waiting there you'll see, if you just close your eyes

Never thought I would be here, so high in the air
This is my unanswered prayer
Defined by another, so much wasted time
Out of the darkness, each breath that I take will be mine

If you close your eyes your life, a naked truth revealed
Dreams you never lived, and scars never healed
In the darkness, light will take you to the other side
and find me waiting there you'll see, if you just close your eyes


Captain Charisma back on ECW. Fuck yes.

Some wanker broke the rear windscreen wiper on my car and broke my right wing mirror.

Cocks.

I'm made up though, after checking my last bank statement I've apparently got just over £2k saved up. About £800 of that will go towards my car, and £1000 of it is my safety net that I maintain at all times. When I get mo monies (which should be happening sometime in the next 4 months) I might increase my safety net.

In other news, I've just bought myself a Samsung NC10 Mini Laptop for weekend use. I plan to stick a Linux build on there at some point, but for now XP will do. Cost me £330, which is part of the reason why I was surprised to still have over 2k in the banco.

I learned that someone I know is renting a decent apartment in Liverpool for £500 a month. Two bedrooms. Hell, I could afford that on my own now. If I had another person to buy in with me, then I'd be quids in.

Been watching Battlestar again this weekend. Almost done with season 2, so I've looked into finishing it off myself. Season 2 and 3 will give me something to do this week. Also, I found the Maxim shots of Boomer from BSG, and wow she's really hot. =D

I must be the most boring person in the universe. I'm typically bored from this time until the time when I go to bed. I really need to find something to do.

Cackenstein, I was going to get more battlestar to watch.

This is the other thing about being bored. I constantly go "I'm BORED" and forget all the things I was thinking of doing. Blaaaarrrrrrgh!

I made my return to Standing Point today, though I confess it's not my actual return to roleplaying. I never did leave that in the end. I continued with random emails, within games and even a little smidgen in real life. I find it hard to write these days at times for some reason. My enthusiasm's still there, but sometimes it's just tough to get going. I used to be able to just write to the exclusion of everything else. Sure I was a little slow at times, but I usually got stuff done. These days it's a concious struggle to make that happen. I plan to get a nice laptop and start using it at the weekends when I'm out and about to post a little bit, and I might even be able to get more into doing things during the week. We'll see how that one goes.

At the end of the day, I don't have enough interests. Also, my interests don't quite fit the arenas I'm attempting to work in. In addition, some of my interests aren't interests at all but merely passing fancies. Bladdy 'ell guv'nah. Been watching a lot of TV stuff lately. Attempting to catch up with Battlestar, watching Deadwood and now I'm back into Lost. I only watch this stuff at the weekends though, because I can't stand watching movies/tv etc on my own. I used to do it with anime and it became utterly pointless.

I read something that made me laugh yesterday though, on a forum I go to every now and then. It said: “Sex is like air – it doesn't matter until you're not getting any.” In my humble opinion, nothing truer was ever said.

So I was looking out into the mist earlier. It made me kind of sad in a way.

I looked at the crystallised frost on the twigs in the trees, watched the billowing low-flying clouds wisping around things. Caressing them perhaps? Touching them with chill fingers and holding everything still and in place. In a way it's beautiful, because here time stands still and nothing is moving. There is no wind, the green dares not move.

I glimpse my reflection in the glass, and I see within myself a reflection of the scene outside. Permafrost, wintry scenes with everything slowed to a crawl. Time inside of me is standing still. There have only been about four times in the past three years I can actually think I've made a major life-altering change and because of that the seasons are stagnating within me.

On the one hand it's crazy to be even likening these things together, but on the other hand I don't think I could bear living in a world where these thoughts didn't occur to me. It was one of my fears growing up, that 'being an adult' meant sacrificing everything that made life interesting. Replacing these interesting (to me) thoughts with thoughts about paying bills and all that other stuff.

Part of my problem is the reluctance to the things around me to change. There are so many aspects touching my own that do not, can not, will not, change. I need to decide whether or not to gravitate away from these things or whether to stick with them and accept the winter to come.

Or perhaps things aren't so melancholy.

I'm just sayin'.

[music |Nightwish - Deep Silent Complete]

Went to the gym today and in my infinite wisdom I decided that my knee was done with rehab. I proceeded to try my old routine of 5 kilometres in 30 minutes. Well at the 18th minute my knee was blown out pretty badly and I had to stop. Even so though, it's still better than 6 minutes until agony - so it is getting better. Still managed to go for 20 minutes on the cross trainer after that though, but it annoys me that I go to the gym for a cardio workout and I can't even use the treadmill. I hate the bikes. With a passion. I'm having to use them though just to get my burn on. I can't stand doing one type of gym exercise for longer than 30 minutes.

Since I've been going to the gym I've put half a stone back on, proving my theory that it was muscle mass I lost over the week I was ill. I suppose that's a good thing, but I still wanted to be lighter than 12 stone for the first time in like 8-10 years.

In other news I now have several characters ready for Northrend, but I don't really know which one to play because my best friend keeps re-rolling. Wanker he is sometimes! Nearly maxed out my engineering on my belf rogue and I've nearly maxed out herbalism on my human warrior. Just need to raise alchemy past 300 next D:

Got a decent amount extra cash this month. I'm hoping for more next month as LCC backdate all the stupid pension money I was giving them. Like I'm staying working for the council forever!

What. What is this?

Blood.

Jill. See if you can find any more clues. I'll be examining this.


Raising lockpicking to 400 is going to bereaaaaallly fucking boring. At least I can make up for the mind numbingness by staring longingly at the amazing things I get to make with engineering.


I've been off work ill most of this week, tragedy I know. Crashing out in the middle of the day and sleeping for hours on end. This reminds me of why my mother loves being sick and especially going to hospital. I definitely agree. Although I am going to go get my flu jab once this goes away. <3 jabs.

Other than World of Warcraft and being ill, nothing much else to report. RPG Soc is going to have another Vampire LARP on the 6th of December, though, so that should be cool.

I hope this is not Jill's Sandwich.

Games I'm looking forward to:

Red Alert 3 - Trailer made me wee a bit.
Dead Space - I <3 FPS.
Fable 2 - If it delivers half what it promised it should be amazing.
Smackdown Vs Raw 09 - Looks like this could be the best incarnation for years. Plus it has THE Brian Kendrick in it.

Two job interviews on Thursday, both big wage improvements, both a step in the right direction. Hope I get one or both of them.
