It’s been a while since I wrote anything of substantial value here since I had to deal with Windows XP failing me and coming back to linux (well, Ubuntu to be precise) only to fix a sound problem and dealing with college and work and those little things in life that get in my way.

Last week as follows:

  • Modelling for my drawing class because of my boots: Many people complained of the excessive details giving them headaches.
  • Shopping for hats and clothes.
  • Getting lost with C______ “Tom Baker” V__ D__ B_____, A__ and D____ in Perth.
  • Talking to the same Nameless Goth Chick with the Guy Called Luca… twice!
  • Pirate-tines Day at Perth and at the Lucky Shag Bar! The Lectures went as follows:

Lecturer: Why are there so many pirates?

Us: Arrrgh!

  • Showing up the day after as The Mad Scientist’s Escaped Lunatic Experiment, shedding much of my Dandy aspects for a day.
  • Getting tied by P_____ and photos taken after!
  • Everyone checking out my goggles and boots with lots of black, metal bits and zips.
  • Touching the Spike on my goggles and people getting poked.
  • People asking me if there was “any free locks”.
  • Tom Baker’s constant craving for a certain corn snack originally from Sydney and Whoop-Whoop. I took the opportunity to make many an amusing joke about TB and liking corn… Corn Porn that is! The conversation went as follows:

C______ “Tom Baker” V__ D__: I want some corn…

D____: I’m starving! Wanna go to Maccas?

Me: He wants some corn alright!: “Show us your cobs!” “Now that’s some nice kernels…” ]

(Cue in the laughs as everyone else around us stare)

  • Hanging around in Borders and eating sushi like a starving man.
  • Generally goofing around.
  • People trying to convince me to “tie them up”.
  • Planning the next Thursday Event: Camo Day?
