Oh what’s this? I have a blog?

22 Mar

I completely forgot about you, silly little blog. I’m terribly sorry. I have been busy, you see. I got Pokemon Black, so that’s stolen about 30 hours of my life so far. I say stolen, I mean taken from me lovingly, with tenderness and understanding. Pokemon knows that I crave accomplishment, and it gives me what I want by telling me my Pokemon are getting more and more awesome at everything.

Also, I got Majesty 2. I am currently fighting a dark wizard who I am quite certain is David Bowie. I will send dwarves after him, and reduce his funky, funky tower of evil to rubble.

Also, I have school. School is like a fog of not-quite-there. I spend so much time in lectures, and I think I absorb most of it, like dry inert material absorbs minor spillages of water. There are moments I think I know everything in the universe, (usually when I’m listening to downbeat electronica), and there are moments I feel my true calling is to sleep a lot and spend the rest of my time trying to find a way to get paid to sleep a lot.

I also work now, only a few hours a week, but it means I have some money I can spend occasionally. I will spend it on wool and woollen clothes, and crochet hooks, and more wool, because one day, I will live in London and I think they all wear wool there pretty much all year. Also stockings.

I found this song on my ipod, and it has probably been there for about a year, but I’d never heard it, and I really like it. Please, like it with me.

 

 

(They were on Yo Gabba Gabba one time. And you all thought I was over that obsession, didn’t you?)

 

Cheerio.

Robots!

15 Jul

It has been quite some time, hasn’t it? I won’t deny that I’ve been incredibly lazy with this blog, but do not blame me! NOTHING interesting happens on holidays…not compared to time spent at uni. Social isolation + children to care for = very little to write about.

But today I saw an episode of Yo Gabba Gabba, an amazing kids’ TV show featuring an elongated red pimple-ball, a pink teardrop with a flower growing out of her skull, a bipolar long armed green thing, an arctic cat with a distaste for yoghurt, a bland yellow robot, and the wonderful DJ Lance Rock. Oh, how his orange jumpsuit fills me with glee.

Today’s episode was about robots. It featured a segment that I think was a veiled message about the dangers of creating AI machines (they started to build more of their kind to be ‘friends’ with… It probably should’ve ended with a violent universal takeover, humankind enslaved forever…). BUT the most wonderful thing about this episode was the Cool Tricks section, where a familiar face volunteered to show us his cool trick… (this isn’t the actual segment on Yo Gabba Gabba, because I can’t find that yet, but you get the gist…just imagine this, but with a really bright coloured background, and about 4 minutes longer.)

It made my day, honestly. Almost as much as the Jack Black episode did.

Other things that have been going on include me being in Queensland and conducting an experiment of sorts I liked to call ‘For how long can El not eat before dying?’. Science. I learnt that it only takes about 2 days before I start to get dizzy. It also gave me an idea for this week’s Challenge…(remember those? I HAVE been quite slack…).

The Challenge:
Find a place in Canberra that sells good quality frozen yoghurt. They have it EVERYWHERE in Brisbane. It’s just not fair.

Next week is BUSH WEEK, which should be excellent. The HvZ stall will be up and running, hundreds of sign-ups being taken, etc… I just need to track down some bamboo in order to finish my banners. Or maybe broom handles. Guess we’ll see.

And my haiku, detailing the only useful thing I’ve achieved today;

Picking my lab times,
Stuck doing the HPO
With zero knowledge.
