Been down at Sarah's the past few days. It's been fun, her family are fun to be around and I get on with them. Spent tonight watching Ghostbusters with her brothers and dad, which was relaxing and fun. The previous day we went out to Toby Caverys for a nice lunch, was so full afterwards it was rather painful to move. XD It's been a nice way to spend my final week of full freedom. Her family are awesome and great fun to be around (her mum supporting our argument to her brother that dolphins are intelligent by quoting Hitchhikers and her dad playing an MMO while we were watching Ghostbusters to cite two examples XD ). It's been fun ^_^
It's weird, life seems to be settling down at the moment. I start proper work on Monday, I have a girlfriend who I can easily imagine happily spending the rest of my life with, and my financial issues are fading away. I've got this nice settled feeling that's hard to describe.
Sarah's been up since Ame, been generally lurking around, watching Smallville and playing WoW. Dinged 70 earlier last night. Sometimes however, things go horribly wrong:
Other than that we've basically been chilling out an having fun. ^_^
Job interview on Tuesday for a trainee Business IT Consultant. Fingers crossed...
In other news, Sarah's ex David continues to be a hassle, breaking into her e-mail, WoW and Facebook accounts and (at least) changing the passwords as well as generally being an arsehole and harassing her. The invasion of privacy with her accounts combined with his previous act of trapping her in his room and refusing to let her leave till the next morning makes two illegal things now. If you've e-mailed Sarah, there is a chance he's read your mail, it's unlikely, but just so you know. The guy just makes me angry, given how he keeps escalating things it's worrying about what he'll do next.

Well, 2 nights of work then awesome begins again. Sarah comes up Wednesday for a week and a bit, planning to do fire spinning, cosplay, head up to Mugdock, Ice skate and other things. Should be good fun ^_^
Well, that's my first two shifts done. Long, tedious, but bearable and decent pay. I get an hour break at 2AM, which is nice. Thanks go out to Sarah for chatting for both of those hours. Kept me amused.^_^ Still hunting for a proper job. I got an offer from BAE the other day, but annoyingly it was based in Fife. A bit too far to commute each day alas. Rather annoying. They'll contact me if anything else comes up though. :)
Blah. Being ill sucks. Started feeling off this afternoon, then began throwing up tonight. Generally feeling rather crap and irritable. Off to bed now, probably spent as much time as needed tomorrow resting. Also, its been done already.

D&D on Friday, Nick and I now have a pirate ship. Oh dear. Games afterwards, then into town the next day to laze around with Nick, Kim, Steve and the like. Was going to head to SURGe then realised I'd left all my sheets in my other bag, at home >_< Headed back, messed about online for the rest of the evening. Sunday I went to see my Gran, who'd had a minor heart attack while on holiday, she seems to be doing fine though. Lazed around for the afternoon before heading over to Eddie's for beer and a BBQ, which was rather nice.^_^ Got back around 00:00, spent the rest of the night on Vent/MSN chatting before crashing around 5AM. I'd originally only meant to sleep for an hour or two, but didn't wake up till lunch. Oops. Headed over to Chris's for an hour before returning to Eddies for another bbq ^^;; Spent today putting up a fence for my grandparents, now just relaxing, playing Touhou and watching anime ^_^
New job I have it seems. I'll be working night shift at Tesco's, which should provide more income while I hunt for a real job. Other than that not too much has happened. I've been busy working on a couple of things for the GA forums I might add at some point and generally lurking around on WoW. Ryune's now up to lvl 51 and doing AV's to get my war wolf. ^_^ Begun making solid plans for my birthday, those it concerns shall be informed in some way soon, probably via LJ or in person. Things are afoot! Its weird, despite stuff generally going well of late, I can't shake of a feeling of gloom. Something's bugging me and I'm not sure what.
Anyways, I love Fate's new transformation scene In Striker's, and I lol at the fact that they spend as much time on Bardiche as on her. Perhaps my favourite magical girl transformation...
Busy of late. Quick summary of what's been going on:
- Tom came up for the week. Pubage, SRW, WoW, Pokemon, and general win. - Time Capsule trip was suitably awesome, despite no sleep I successfully navigated us there. We shall return at some point. Also tsk tsk at Angela and Chris for waking me up from my nap on the return home. Meanies :P - New DS. No longer am I deprived of Ouendan. Just in time for Ouendan 2 as well.... OSU! - Confirmed for Amecon. Yay! - Dave made delicious cake. Which we eated. - More sad is the fact I'm meant to be down in Brum seeing Sarah and Tom this week. Alas due to an interview I can't be. Rather annoying, since we were all meant to go out for a curry last night. Probably can't go down till late June now... ><
"Wakuteka News pointed out media reports originating from Mainichi over the weekend about the vandalism of a 180cm bronze statue in the courtyard at Oita prefecture's Oita Uenogaoka High School. As video reports from OBS News Line (high-res/low-res) show, police are investigating the incident in which the statue was completely spray-painted in gold, had the kanji "hyaku" written on its shoulders, and the words "Sieg Zeon" etched into its back. The statue had been given to the school by an alumnus for its 110th year anniversary in 1995."
Much as I deplore vandalism, this made me laugh.
( PictureCollapse ) For those that don't get it, its a Zeta Gundam reference. :P
Going away down to England to help at an outdoor centre on Sunday. Will not be around for the week. Likely won't make SURGe tomorrow/today due to needing to get everything organized. Really annoying but not avoidable. >_

Out for Mishi's birthday on Friday. Was fun to see people and chat. I ninjad off after Ichiban, so I still need to go see 300 at some point. Been job hunting the past few days when not on WoW/with people. Applied for a few, we'll see what happens. Unfortunately my sleeping pattern isn't that good right now. I'd fixed it last month too.... :(
I hate having a button I can't press. On WoW I've created a macro for my Divine Intervention spell, so its done in a more dramatic way (Heaven and Earth and all that). Unfortunately due to what it does (kills me) I can't use it. But I want to! Torment! Speaking of WoW I've been on more of late making up for lost time with Ryune. Been questing a lot with Sarah, since we work/get on well together and we're around the same level (and have the same sleep patterns). We also kind of monopolise guild chat. XD

Active day today. Spent the morning doing work on the house before going to my grans for lunch. Back up now, been poking at jobs and chatting online (more than I usually do the past few days, I'm usually not that talkative >_>; ). Got a couple of jobs I'll probably submit my CV for and see what happens. ^_^
Need to do more on WoW. Ryune needs more levels...
On an unrelated note, this weeks Bleach was quite good. I like backstory eps. Naruto was also quite good, but its moving slowly which I find a bit of a "meh". I understand why, but it still made the ep a bit less awesome than it could have been.
Went over to Chris's today for a bit after getting some stuff done in the morning. Missing the con at the moment so seeing people was good. I've also managed to pick up a slight cough, I suspect from Sarah (though to continue the Minami trend I'll blame Tom :-P). Luckily its not too bad, it's just an annoyance. :\
