‘lo thar

Wednesday, April 19th, 2006

Yes. Not much is happening. Except its the Easter Holidays! Two weeks of, well, complete nothing! I have at least one History essay to be delivered to my History teacher, a Mr Bill Cliftlands(He’s in books!).

I have also come into possession of all six Star Wars movies. I have watched them all in order, and it makes a lot more sense. Even with wacked out CGI characters. I then went to watch the commentary on these DVDs. (all legal). I have nothing else to do! This spurred me into playing through the Star Wars : Empire at War campaigns, and buying Star Wars : Galactic Battlegrounds off of ebay. woot.
I have finally found some inspiration for what the building for the Glass Station will look like. Modern and cool, hangar style. Oh yes.

Random Thingamajigs

Friday, April 7th, 2006

So. Its almost been a month since my last post, and the snow, and the Xfire craziness. It is now a whole new month, and April Fools has come and gone, with no mad “I saw Jesus in my toast” or “Michael Jackson appeared in my fogged up window” blog posts for the day of fools.

On the non-hallucinatory side of life, I went to the Trafford centre with the college. Not exactly an educational day out, but nonetheless, i bought the Star Wars trilogy (the original movies), and the game, Rise of Nations. Not only this, but I also recieved a few random games in the last month, as well as The Life of Brian on DVD.

Tomorrow is my theory test for driving. Thats right. In the UK, as soon as you turn 17, you can drive anywhere (except motorways) as long as you have another qualified driver in the car. I must pass my theory test before taking my practical, of which Mr Payne, my friendly driving instructor, will submit me when I am good enough. I can get from A to B through all sorts of traffic obstacles without dying or causing death, so i must be doing good. I can’t wait to drive. I have been a slave to the bus companies for too long! When I pass my test, I can go my own way, suckers!
