A big happy new year to all I haven't wish so already (which is everyone -.=.-) I hope you've all made your resolutions & are sticking to them >.=.< I've made & stuck to mine. I've finally 'kicked to the curb' my smoking habit of 10 years & am starting to notice the difference already, I can breath easier & food somehow tastes better than it did before ^.=.^
Looking back on the past 366 days, I can say it's had it's highs & it's lows, but mainly highs I'm pleased to say. Here a short list of vids marking the best bits of 2008 for those who are interested (or bored >.=.<) Enjoy!
Glen Bruar to Allt Sheicheachan view bothy
Toastland - The Brunssum adventure
Storm Hawks Tribute - Through the Fire & Flames (Love cartoons ^.=.^)
Well that's me registered, just waiting on Pyx & Nikolai to show so I can give'em a big hug & off load my luggage. Haven't seen anyone I know yet today (well except 2) so I guess waiting is the name of the game. Anyone want to play ?
I've had a day from hell, trying to use the McDonalds WiFi at the train station (which requires a code) only to be told they apparently didn't have internet access (couldn't be bothered trying to understand me) Then to be 'fleeced' by a cabbie $80- who claimed to be lost & didn't even get me to the hotel T.=.T . I eventually got another cab which got me to the main hotel, lucky for me I was spotted by Glow *1000x Hugs & kisses* who brought me to the Holiday Inn. I'm still trying to get a hold of Pyx, whom I pray hasn't got into the city to pick me up @.=.- . For all those who are interested, I'm in room 314.
Just finished repacking my bags, not long now before I catch my train from Sacramento to Chicago. The trip thus far has been great, I've ridden about San Fransisco by tram, been up & down that crazy wyndy road (I forget it's proper name >.=.<), Taken the Alcatraz tour & taken lots of picture with a knome I 'nicked' from a neighbours front garden the morning before I left >.=.< See you all in a few days! ^.=.^
When folks, I'm just about ready to jet off state-side >.=.< My flight leaves 5:50am tomorrow morning, quick change at Amsterdam then I'm off to San Fransisco. Why San Fran ? Well the plan was to pick up my costume, meet up with my 'old man' & do some site seeing. A good plan, with one miner drawback... My costume won't be ready till December *weeps*, So, It looks like it'll be next year before my costumed daybu *pouts* Owell, can have it all I guess. I'm sure to find a net connection somewhere on my travels from West to East, so I'll update my progress ^.=.^ See you all at MFF!
I woke this afternoon (I was night shift) with a sobbing thought.. What's a guy to do to get his 'end' away in modern society these days !? It's not like I haven't tried, I'm starting to think I'd better invest in an abstinence ring, just so I've got an excuse to fall back on >.=.<
*Growls*...Right! Jerk-off or Guitar hero III ? ....*Tries to hump own leg* Screw it! Guitar hero it is! >.=.
*Wanders in & trips* OMG! I have a journal! (You wouldn't think so would you >.=.<)
Well now, better update it ^.=.^
I finally *cough(Some time ago)* completed my vid logging most of my activities from 2007
The Year that was 2007 (Part 1)
Got some snapshots of the clay model that will be the mask of my costume.
More recently (last weekend) I was out hiking with a few friends. As it's still winter & for a change of pace, we spent the night in a Bothy (Thats a small cottage in the middle of nowhere) & got first entry in the 2008 guest book >.=.<
Tip for the day: Treat life's little problems as your dog would, If you can't eat it or hump it, piss on it & walk away >.=.
