It's a new dawn, it's a new day... - The Paranoid Android
...musings of a mechanically depressed robot...
It's a new dawn, it's a new day...
It's 2006...

After almost a month off work, I'm back. To celebrate(?) this fact I'm spending about as much time as I can not actually doing any work. This is helping loads!

The "holiday season" was good. Having the outlaws over for Christmas was not as bad as I thought it would be... I would even go as far as to say I enjoyed it. Spending New Year with my folks instead of getting drunk at the Albert was a stroke of genius.

I am now the proud owner of a level 20 mage, and 7 other level 10+ characters on the WOW servers.

Santa was kind to me, so I guess I must have been a good boy last year(!), and brought me toys and DVD's and CD's. I have to build a football playing robot in the next week or so!

We finally installed the microwave yesterday (thanks Mum & Dad) but have yet to use it... although I was tempted to make a cup of tea with it. I did set the clock... I hate those flashing numbers.

It took me an extra hour getting ready this morning... I couldn't find a thing! I hope to get back into the getting ready for work habit soon... I'm not sure how understanding Whavy will be if I get in an hour late all week... I'm guess not at all.

I listened to episode 1 of Ricky Gervais' podcast on the way in this morning... and kept cracking up! If you don't want your fellow commuters looking at you in a strange way and moving further down the carriage, you shouldn't listen to this!

I guess it's time I got on will a bit of work... I'll leave you with a new year's resolution of types... I will update more this year.

Current Mood: determined determined

PvE ... and I'm horde (all 8 characters!)... alliance is for elf lovers! :)

I thought about a PvP server, but I had enough playing EVE with all the "griefers" there.

I was shocked to see the stats for character/class... about half of the characters on my server are human warriors. That's just dull.

I have also been propositioned a few times when I'm playing my main character... an undead (female) mage! What kind of sad weirdo wants to have sex with the undead? That's necrophilia surely?

It influenced all my other character choices... they are all male! ;)

More to the point, what kind of weirdo wants their imaginary friend to have sex with someone else's imaginary friend?

Or was it an offer of good old-fashioned fluid transfer?

Probably some hormonal teenage kid who thought I was a chick... I think the line he used was "I'll give you 5s if you dance naked"

Your "this" link goes to my friend's page. Is this the correct link or is my browser screwing with me? I don't mind anyone reading my friend's page, but it just seems odd that it would be helping you loads to not work, which makes me think my browser is messed up.

Happy New Year!

The link goes to which ever page you read it from... I was suggesting that LJ itself was keeping me from working... not any one page in particular...

Sorry if I freaked you there a bit :/

Happy New Year to you too! :)

Hurrah Microwave! Now, about WoW. Is that Warcraft, by any chance? My stepfather tried to convince me the other night that I should give it a whirl, he and my little brother could help me out. Ha! He seems to have forgotten that I find online games distracting, and therefore I don't play them. I'd offer to hook you up with them if you like, I doubt they'd try and chat you up. ;-)

Wow is indeed World of Warcraft.

I would imagine your stepfather and brother are on American servers, and my copy of the game is limited to the European ones :/

And there, my darling Android, is the exact legit excuse I was looking for to get out of having to play. :D

Glad to have been of service! ;)
