Charity is fun

I've met some rather interesting people while working for free which, if nothing else is keeping me entertained.

I picked up Pokemon FireRed off of to keep me busy while I'm waiting for Scribblenauts UK release next month. I had forgotten how great the first gen Pokemon were. It was delivered this morning, my one day off this week from my charity work ( I know, I know) and rather than tormenting people on Red Faction: Guerrilla as I had planned I have been wasting time playing on my DS.

This might seem like a huge waste of post (like there is much difference) and you would be right, I did have something I wanted to type about but, well, I forgot it. So as a trade off while I try to remember. My current six Pokemon at the moment, I've just beaten Brock, are:

Charmander, Beedrill, Metapod, Rattata, Pidgey and Pikachu.

My Metapod -almost- managed to hurt Brocks Geodude, so in Celebration I made a picture:

Its my Metapod using Harden against a small and largely un-drawn city. scary isn't it.

Pick a legislation any legislation

I was having a chat last night while slagging off Derren Brown and came to the obvious conclusion that the world would be a better place if Paul Daniels had a position in parliament. If nothing else it would make PMQ's more fun. Can you imagine him presenting a selection of laws and legislation to the PM and asking him to pick one, any one. before pulling a slight of hand and pulling out a bouquet of flowers from somewhere. All the while Debbie McGee poses with a white rabbit filled with tax reforms.

Anyway, I think you get the point and can probably make your own fun from the idea of a magician minister, so ciao.

Edit: More spelling mistakes than words.

4 Posts, 1 Month

Sounds like a dodgy internet video does it not? This is an extremely lazy post however. I saw this on BBC show Watchdog last night and found it hilarious.

As an ex NTL/Telewest/Virgin customer I know first hand that their customer service is one step above that of that standard guy down the pub who believes himself to be god's gift and showers you with slurred compliments, followed by vomit. So it's nice that the BBC went to the effort of making a short song to try and get the point across.

11/9 Post

I was browsing b3ta this morning and noticed that it was the 11th of September ( 9/11 in America, 11/9 everywhere that counts) and that made it the anniversary of a certain event. Normally I wouldn't do anything as to avoid offending any god fearing politically correct types. However, I had a nice idea that did not involve a comical object or person knocking down the buildings.

It's a picture of a bee defending the towers from a wasp by firing it's eye lasers at it.

Completely Undeserved Celebrations

Wrist-hugging and it's refuge has existed for a year this month and what better way to celebrate than a wallpaper that no one except for me will ever use/see.

I know when this image is looked at it'll probably be written off as lazy, but I quite enjoyed making it, there were some good memories and rants I re-read while piecing it together and while completely unbelievable here's hoping I can, this time next year look back and have another set of fun times to remember. (Click the image for wallpaper-ish sized).

heres a list of the posts each months picture was taken from:






How to: Disappoint and confuse yourself

Yo-ho ahoy nobody. I figure I dropped off the map for so long that even passing strangers now skip this hole because of all the cobwebs. However, while I say this -every- time I disappear and come back, I should be about more for now at least. The course I was on has finally finished and I have a little bit more free time. So much so in fact that I'm at a loss as to what to do, -so- much of a loss in fact, that I ended up here typing.

However not all my time is free, which is the part where the title comes in. The first lesson I shall teach for a while shall be a simple one while I work on more stuff in GIMP. Don't believe me? how dare you. I bring proof and Jaffe cakes, however the Jaffe cakes are just for me.

See, I have at the very least got the programme open. Anyway the course was fun. By the end of it each day was essentially a bitching contest between various members of staff and trainees. Suffice to say the side that had me tended to win. Although I'll admit not due to intelligence or well placed insults, just persistence.

I found a nice picture I made years ago when I used to use Windows (I know, right?). No fancy layers or anything just a cheap mspaint scribble, but it's of a much higher quality than the stuff I usually garnish my rants with so enjoy.

You might notice I've stumbled around the subject slightly here, well I'm somewhat disappointed in myself. There is one thing you see, I said with some authority while younger and possessed some sort of social life, that "I would never do volunteer work, I mean, that's like working, but like, for free". Unfortunately however for reasons unknown ... I'm working voluntarily for a charity shop.

As you can see I'm rather confused and I imagine my sociable self from the past would be disappointed.

As for the dear non-existent reader, are you not disappointed with what that rambling lead up too and confused as to why you bothered?
