      Scores for my final year came in.

      Very, very happy.

      Didn't mean to make another journal just yet, but I couldn't help it.

      *dances off into the distance*

    • Placeholder.

      Alright, I'm back, and the first thing on the list is to get through these alerts. So this is sort of a placeholder, since I don't feel good about making a (real) journal without having read other people's ones.

      I intend to read them all (Can't say the same for the discworld thread and others...1500 replies is a bit much for me, even with my newly found time.
      There won't be comments on all, because apart from the serious alert trauma it would cause, I wouldn't be saying much after 40 journals.

      Now to try and get these done in a week.

      Edit: Two people down (15 pages of journals), 14 to go.

      'lo all...you might have noticed I've been quiet recently, both in regards to my journals and yours...at the moment I'm just not finding the time to read the,...85 journals slowly collating...but don't worry, some day I'll get round to it. So expect alert rape when that comes.

      Reasons for not being around;
      Musical - rehearsals, open night, subsequent nights and afterparty,
      Parties - Friends' 18ths.
      School - Overwhelming amount of work

      Plus lots of small stuff that keeps popping up out of no where....anyway...hoping you're all doing well, I'll be round later, I hope...

      Oliver.

      Finally got all alerts cleared...now to go away for two weeks to let them build up again.......

      I should probably stop answering trivia questions, huh? =P

      Heading off to beach house for a week, then coming back, grabbing two friends and heading back up there again. See you all about the 7th, and then again later 13~th ish.

      Enjoy your New years and the like =)

    • Getting there...

      voodoodoll33

      Slowly making my way through journals when I have the time. Only six people left (been going from top to bottom, so whenever new journals come out, they're done before all the old ones).

      Brief update.
      Exams are well and truly long gone, and I did fairly well. Disappointed in the maths/science (as in I did very well but could have done better), but ecstatic about everything else.

      Also, VCE scores came out (marks for year 12 subjects). I'm a little disappointed with what I go (a 40). Don't ask me to explain the system, as I don't quite understand it totally, and it's really, really complex.
      Let's just say that the state average is 30. And 50 is the highest possible mark. Which one person got. Disappointed with the mark itself (was looking for 43~45), but when I found out that two people at my school who I expected to get high forties...didn't do so well, I realised tha tit wasn't such a bad score. It was marked a lot more harshly than any of us expected =s

      Reading a lot. Got tons of books to read for next year, plus tons of books I'm reading myself. Currently life is alternating between reading, studying a little Japanese, listening to music, eating, sleeping, playing Dawn of War (first game I've actually bought in years. It's not so bad =P) and talking to friends.

      Such is life. Hope that all of you are exceedingly well, and are looking forward to the upcoming christmassy thing (which I only just realised is five days away), and not stressing too much, whether about work, study, life or play (and presents. Eugh.).

      I normally try to read everyone else's journals before I post one myself and add to everyone else's pain, but I've been a little busy recently, and am set to be busy more in the next few weeks. Exams and all that jazz.

      I'll be back soonish, and once I do I'll catch up on everything.

      By the way, discworld people, I'm very disappointed in you.

      40 replies? I expected more!

      1. I rather liked the idea of random facts, and decided to do it once a week to just collate all the thoughts I have through the week, and stick the choice ones on here…

      2. I am currently making plans to have a custard-on-pizza day…a friend and I have come up with an idea to just get random foods, which like we on their lonesome, stick them together, and see what the result is. It originally started with just a conversation about custard on pizza (no idea how we got there), and mutated from there…now I just need to get a third friend in on it so we can have reviews as to whether it’s a success (like spiders, i.e. ice cream and soft drink). Other possible suggestions so far have been…chocolate mousse & pasta, raspberries & popcorn ground (mortar and pestle style) and put into a pastry and baked as a cake, tuna/mayonnaise/rice bubbles, meatballs in jelly, and many more…if you can think of any good combinations, let me know! (I’m thinking of setting up a blog for it if it becomes a regular thing…=P)

      3. I’ve recently been interested in a compadre of mine, interested interested, and it struck me that that friend is rather like my ex-girlfriend, and a number of other people that I’ve been interested in. So this is half a thought, and half a question. Do you find that you are interested in/interest the same sort of people? Or totally different types of people?

      4. This week ahead is what’s known as muck up week here in Victoria…it’s actually supposed to be muck up day, but it’s become a week now. Basically it’s the last week that the year 12 students here (i.e. in their last year) have of school. Hence a number of them get a little..ratbaggy. There’s lots of rumours as to what’s happened in past muck up weeks, such as; A group of students getting three pigs, spraying the numbers 1, 2 and 4 on their sides and releasing them in a school. A group of students leading a cow up to the top floor, and leaving it there (ostensibly cows can’t go down stairs). There’s lots and lots of others…but there are a few rumours that are true. For example, a couple of years back a heap of students at my school rerouted the traffic from the major road that goes past our school…and they rerouted it THROUGH the school. Apparently my dad, when he was finishing his course at uni, got a bunch of his mechanic/engineering friends, and they disassembled a car and then reassembled it on the roof of their uni…but yes, it’ll be an interesting week, I’ve already had two threats to be shaved (my hair is…rather long, by this point. Not quite as long as Famewolf or Dan’s [almost as long as Dan's actually, now I check...], but a fair bit longer than the school allows…)

      5. This morning I went out shopping, and I wasn’t concentrating when I bought salami (I’m living at home at the moment, and I like to have some form of meat to go with the inordinate amount of peanut butter sandwiches I eat. I noticed afterwards that I bought 500 grams of salami. I don’t know what that is in pounds, but I can tell you one thing, it’s a hell of a lot of Hungarian spicy salami for a single person to eat. (The pizzas we had today had a fair bit of salami on it…to tell the truth, it worked pretty well.

      6. Point #2, i.e. the custard on cake thing. Well…it happened. And it turns out it doesn’t work so badly, in fact it’s…almost good. Perhaps we shouldn’t have put salami on it, because that made the flavours fight for dominance, and the custard lost, because it’s a far more soft flavour…but it was like having a creamy pizza…it worked well…I probably wouldn’t do it if I was bored and looking for a snack, but it’s not bad. =)

      7. I recently finished Anna Karenina…it took a while, but it was sort of worth it. The book’s not bad, and the writing style was excellent…but it’s just not one of those books you can’t put down, and I probably won’t want to re-read it…any time soon at least. Since I finished that, I’ve been reading a collection of four stories by Steven King. Finished the first two, and getting near the end of the third. The stories are Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption, Apt Pupil, The Body and The Breathing Method. I’m finding these stories much harder to put down. (Info about the collection of novellas…>Here.)

      8. I just finished writing a four page letter…a letter in which I’ve written as small as possible, so I could fit everything in. I just hope that it makes it to the addressee, because the first letter she sent to me never got here.

      An interesting meme I found being passed around on DeviantArt...and I thought was rather cool..and should control some more brains!

      Basically it goes like this...

      1. Post these rules:
      2. Each person tagged must post 10 random facts about themselves
      3. Tags should write a journal of these facts
      4. At the end of the post 6 more persons are tagged and named
      5. Go to their profile and leave a comment telling them they're tagged

      =D

      #1 I have three scars (that I know of) on my body; one on my lip (the result of bouncing up and down on a trampoline, coming down at one point and catching my lip on a spring near the edge, then bouncing back up), and two on my left arm. I’m not sure how I got the last two…I can’t remember getting the lip scar either, it’s just hearsay from my family.

      #2 I have this terrible thing whenever I see a series that's incomplete. It's just annoying. For example, I'm just re-organising my bookshelf now, and I'm putting all the large serieses (or series', whichever one is the correct plural form of series) at the top, and it's annoying to see that a few of them are incomplete...something I think I may have to rectify at a later stage. =P

      #3 I recently bought a Discworld Thud! board-game for my brother's 21st. His 21st was actually on the 10th of September, but I'd wanted to get this for him for ages...unfortunately the people who sell the aforementioned game don't ship outside the U.K., so I had to check ebay every week or so for it...eventually I bought it for something like 26 pounds, plus 7.5 pounds postage, but it came to $65AUD. A bit expensive, but definitely worth it, after all, it is his 21st...

      #4 For the last few days, and the next three to four days, I've been helping a cake baking charity organisation, which bakes something like 3,000 cakes and then sells them for charity. I went last year as well, and earlier this year helped set up for a smaller thing of cake baking, and did all the stuff that needs to be done ages before the cakes are actually baked...so by now I'm well recognised by all the old ladies at the cake bake.

      #5 I find it amazing how the aforementioned old ladies can sit around and talk about how they buried this husband or this nephew/son/daughter etc, so calmly. A group of them were sitting around talking about these sorts of things, gravestones, how they have booked their own plots already...I understand that mortality is a fact of life (Hah!), but what is it with this need to fixate oneself on it? Perhaps I'll understand if I ever reach that age...

      #6 The two women I know who organise giant charity organisations (the lady who runs the aforementioned cake baking charity and another woman who runs a giant program for migrants and the children of migrants to be tutored, to which I go every Friday night), are both so rigidly stuck in...well...the olden days. It's annoying, because they're both such incredibly nice women, they do so much for other people, but in regard to certain things like gender equality, they don't function so well...

      #7 I have an ever-growing book list which I'm slowly, slowly chipping away at...unfortunately every time I meet a new person they recommend a new book to me. Sometimes I wonder why I bother to read all these books...what's the point? But then again, I get that feeling with a lot of activities these days...the only thing which I seem to be able to do is talk to friends face to face, and do school work (after a prolonged period of procrastination =d) >.<

      #8 I haven't even sat down to write for ages. I blame it on the fact that I'm too busy, but I know that that's just a cruddy excuse...even if it is true sometimes. I guess recently I've come to the decision that life's long, and I don't need to force myself to write now, it's unlikely I'll have the experiences I need to write something that I personally am happy with just yet...I should try, but I can never find the motivation.

      #9 My life revolves around school. And I'm not sure that's such a healthy thing.

      #10 Currently there's something fairly important to my life going down..or something that could be important...there might be more updates in regard to this...or...you know...not =P

    • The Phantom of the Opera...

      11 years ago

      voodoodoll33

      Rawr.

      Just went to see Phantom of the Opera…
      I know I’ve said it many a time before…but that score…is incredible.
      I can tell I’m going to be singing it for a while…
      Definitely my favourite song is the main theme, “The Phantom of the Operaâ€Â…to have that blasted fairly loud to you by a live orchestra…it’s a feeling I have a feeling will stick with me for quite a period of time…
      The opera itself..well, I have to say it was definitely well funded. The sets were exquisite, the costumes were exceptional, and the choreography was excellent =D

      I’m now sitting up past a time when normally I would try to be being asleep, listening to the Phantom of the Opera as loud as it will go on my speakers. Which is pretty damn loud =P

      The characters themselves were pretty terrific as well, though Raoul (A Benicio Del Toro look-alike) annoyed me…
      The woman who played Christine Daae was sort of…petite & dainty…but the voice emanating from her...was pretty damn good. She wasn’t too great on soft pure notes, but she trilled extremely well.
      As for Andrew Warlow (The Opera Ghost)…words cannot describe how good he was…there was a standing ovation for him at the end, and he seemed pretty chuffed by it. Apparently he played the Phantom in the last Melbourne production (some 15 years ago), and was in fact better than before..

      A question though, to all that have seen it/read the book/seen the film…
      Hand at the level of your eyes? The only thing it means to me is to make sure you don’t get roped by the Phantom…perhaps there’s more, but I was just curious.

      “The tears I might have shed for your dark fate grow cold and turn to tears of hate.â€Â

      Favourite songs…;
      Point of no Return, Angel of Music, Phantom of the Opera.

      There's nothing too exciting going on here - I've got deadlines out of the way, and am trying to split my time between T and clearing the five hundred and something journals I've got waiting for me here.

      I mean, I'm certain something exciting could be going on here... just that right now, I can't think of it. smiley8.gif

      Glad to hear that things are going well with you, though. I take it life has been busy for you, too (between the number of journal updates, and not getting to play games for a while)?

      Oh, and as for unit caps... The only game with a unit cap limit that I've really gotten on with is Warlords: Battlecry 3; there, a couple of hundred units would be a lot (and some units count as several towards the cap).

      Otherwise, games like Command and Conquer, where you can just build freely are what I used to play a lot - I realise this opens the way to swarming tactics, but played between two players of even ability even this approach can be a lot of fun.

      It's made out of black... *something* - not quite sure. Bought it from Egypt a few years ago now. Now I look at it, I think it's wood. Might be something else, but more than likely. Might be plastic, but I have no real way of knowing, and it looks more crafted with little dents in it everywhere...

      Perhaps I'm interpreting this incorrectly, but by your ellipsis after the frisbie, it seems as if you're disappointed...

      We're talking about freebies, I'd have taken both...

      To be honest, I think they are much the same thing - frisbies or condoms, they are both far more fun in the company of another person...

      Of course. Diagonal text never lies! My biggest problem with the "pain and agony" with this TV is having to go back to a small monitor after this. I'm sure I can. Binoculars to see text from the closest comfortable chair (other side of the room) is a little weird. But I definately know that big monitors are the way to go.

      You're probably right, but I'm think I'm safer not knowing to be honest.

      Text for demonstrative purpose. In Theory.

      Nah, I'm in a lounge-room. I don't have this tv in my room, the fucking thing is bigger than my bed. Hang on though, I'll abuse reality and use my camera phone to take a shot. It won't do it anywhere near enough justice though.

      I just swap the place setting when I sit down. Confuses some people I know, or if it's a silver service place then I just swap them around when I pick them up. Cutlery is confusing.

      You're wrong. It's not really big at all, the words you're looking for contain the letters C, E, F, G, H, I, K, N & U.

      Good for TV shows and games. Especially Space Ring III. smiley0.gif

      I figured this was a bit off topic for the Discworld trivia thread, but while tidying up today I found some pages I copied from a book about names. When I write, I often have trouble coming up with names, so there were lists of interesting ones that I found useful. There was a section on old names that have gone out of fashion, which is what is relevant here.

      "Suffer-Not-Injustice Vimes" is an example of a Puritan sounding name; parents named their children with characteristics they wanted them to have... in this case, it seems to have carried through the generations to Samuel Vimes too. But it's not too over the top; some of the examples given in this book were basic traits ("Abstinence", "Charity", "Hope", "Joy", etc.), but some were more extreme, almost instructions ("Be-Courteous", "Faith-My-Joy", "Make-Peace", "Safe-On-High").

      The two longest ones listed are "Fight-The-Good-Fight-Of-Faith" and "Job-Raked-Out-Of-The-Ashes". For the record, "Suffer-Not-Injustice" isn't listed here, though.

      Yes, I hate ticking clocks, but only when I'm trying to sleep. Any regular sound will do that to me... water dripping, snoring... perty much any noise that won't stop appart from traffic noises. I used to have a room with the motoray not far from it, so now I find traffic noises relaxing.
