      So... it's been a while, anyone remember me?

    • Hey Hey!

      So... uh... did you miss me?

      It's been ages for 1 simple reason. Telstra sucks. They took forever to run a phone line into my house. That's right the company responsible for infrastructure in Australia took an excessive amount of time to run a phone line into a property less than 25 minutes from the CBD.

      So... what did I miss?

      ...until my operation.

      Operation.jpg

      I am due to have an operation called a Polynodal Sinus. Now before you all hit wikipedia, I'll tell you what it is. It is like a cross between an ingrown hair and a weed, and it is working it's way into my tailbone and strangling something in my spinal column. I had had this operation previously (about 6-7 years ago) but it appears that the surgery was unsuccessful. They don't know why, and can't confirm it won't need surgery again.

      Private health is a great help, they are reducing the cost of my surgery by $50. Yay!*

      * Please note the previous sentence should be read in the most overstated sarcasm you could possibly imagine.

      So for those of you who have my gamertag, recovery would be a good time to try and get in some game time with me on Xbox Live. Though admittedly, I still mostly play Halo 3 online.

      I recently got served with a court summons. It turns out that if you are a good samritan and some some guy beating on his girlfriend, you get called to court 2-3 years later to testify on it. Unfortunately i will be unable to walk at the time, so I am organising yet another doctors certificate to provide me with adequate reason for not attending.

      Had today off work on the roster so I got to take care of a few house things before I go under the knife. We picked carpets, tiles and various other things for the house and will be picking several more on Monday before my op. We are going for a browns, bronzes, charcoals and whites and we seem to be doing a decent job of it.

      I wanted stone masonry, some skulls, a few barred windows and doors, and maybe a few chains, but apparently Deanne disagrees with this, so we compromised.

      Anyhoo, that's all I've got for now. I will try and make these entries a more common thing again, but I am making no promises right now. I still haven't caught up on all your journals...

      As in Migraine.

      Today as I was driving to work, I got a nice big bling spot in my left eye. That is the tell tale sign that my head is going to feel like I have a little alient creature trying to burst out of my skull from my forehead.
      FW8513AX.jpg

      So aside from the remaining pounding sensation I am currently experiencing, I have a nice little floating feeling in the rest of my head thanks to the pain killers I took before disappearing to sleep for 8 hours. Which essentially means I write of an entire day (no Wednesday for me).

      Lorelai continues about her merry way. I should be thankful for such a quiet well behaved baby, but there is just something that is both cute and frustrating about a child that should be sleeping that is awake and smiling at you.

      Lastly just to keep everyone in the loop, I am due for an operation on 14 Oct on my tailbone to keep the ability to walk. I have had the operation previously, but there is no guarantee that i won't need the same operation again in approx 10 years.

      Anyhoo, I am off to go watch chapter 15 of the new RvB. Seeya around.

      Ok, so it has been a while, and i have had every intention of coming back here on a regular basis, but it hasn't been happening. My schedule is dominated by baby, wife, work and clan and there is little time for anything else. I will be on here again soon with a real post, and baby pictures. smiley0.gif

      Finished Mass Effect. Started a 2nd game on the hardest difficulty. Gonna start playing Assassins Creed soon I swear, haven't touched Halo 3 in about a week, which is bad, coz I run a Halo clan.

      Worked all last week, though it should really be 'worked' I did an internship as part of my MCP course, and spent the week unpaid in the tech bay.

      Baby is going well, I have a couple of ultrasounds of him (we are saying him, as we are expecting it to be a boy), and yet another this Thursday.

      That's it for now. Sorry, no pictures.

    • Too much choice

      I'm still loving Halo 3 (in fact i have hired a hall to have a LAN in on Dec 8th), but I just recently got Guitar Haro 3, and even more recently got Mass Effect & Assassins Creed, the problem is, I want to play them all right now!

      I am so distraugh over this that I can't play any, hence the reason I am here. What would you play?
      boxanzhalo3_v2.jpg or boxanzgh3.jpg or boxmasseffectANZ.jpg or boxanzaCreed.jpg

      Halo 3 is Halo, and I love it, in particular the long lasting team games like CTF & Assault that my clan spend a lot of time playing. Guitar Hero 3 is great, I now have 2 guitars, but no coop partner, plus I have to be careful about burning my plasma. Mass Effect is probably the best mad RPG I have played in a very long time, it puts Oblivion back on the shelf. And Assassins Creed with it's different control system and pure flexibility of gameplay, plus unique story line has me all caught up.

      On matters concerning my pending offspring, we shall have an image of the future bub this Friday after Deanne goes for her ultrasound. We have decided to go to a private hospital nearby for the birth, partly for the location, and partly because the birthing doctor Deanne wants only works at that hospital.

      finger-baby.jpg

      Deanne & I have come to a tentative agreement on names for a boy or a girl, but as of late Deanne has been known to change her mind at the weirdest of times about the strangest of things. Bed time is fun, it seems to be this nightly routine of Deanne pointing out my flaws until she's too exhausted to continue. Luckily i have thick skin and can take it for what it is (hormones :p).

      Work is going good. I am hitting budgets and pulling my weight quite well. School is ok, the class that was delayed is in December, so I should hopefully be wrapping everything up before the year is out.

      Lastly I woud like to launch the "Do it faggot" campaign for LeeRock and Xbox Live. Quite simply we are trying to entice LeeRock into the world of Xbox Live, and we are going to entice him through harrassment. Simply post 'Do it faggot' or a picture with the same words in his personal comments everytime you feel like it until he get's Xbox Live. I know you all want to help.

      Actually one of Matts strengths is that he is a really really good present buyer - I told him I wanted a watch but he did pick it out all by himself!!

      Make it best two out of three, with rotating game types.
      Or only pick levels you all are completely unfamiliar with, might level the playing field.
