Good Evening.

Unusually early for me to start writing a blog, but it feels later then it is… not that I feel tired, although that would be fun… I don’t know… I’ve confused myself now…

So, what happened today, or will be happening in the near future? Anything noteworthy whatsoever? I have approx. 10 weeks to finish ICT coursework, I seem to be finding any reason possibly not to work on it, not good…

Emski turned into a Panda, I’d post a picture of it, but the evasive fiend that she is, I couldn’t get an acceptable photo… that was fun…

Can I ask a favour of you, my readers, could you post a comment saying who you are, because I get odd views on here… 15 views before I posted this? Who is that… I don’t get enough spam for that to cover it all…

Anyway, other stuff… didn’t go to Biology Assessed Practical today, I decided to go home instead… that was fun… Don’t tell mother, she’d complain. Probably shouldn’t write that here then…

Channel one goes away today, you’d think on the last day of their broadcasted-ness they’d not show the same stuff that was on two weeks ago… bad grammar…

Opera’s being entertaining, The Internet browser, not the music, I haven’t refreshed TV guide, so it still thinks it’s 11.12.2010. that’s fun, isn’t it? No, it’s really boring… On another boring note, I’ve had the same video playing repeatedly for the last 2 hours, ish.

Good video, very entertaining near the start.

Videos! Mother doesn’t usually watch them if she reads this, quite impolite isn’t it? So I might post something especially for her… if I can think of something suitably entertaining, or offensive…

Nope, couldn’t find anything I could bring myself to post…

I did end up watching some Mass Effect 2 videos, they’re fun… but the presence of it in them makes me really annoyed I don’t have collector or terminus equipment sets… grr… Damned annoying, so I’m going to make sure I get all the possible pre-order stuff for Mass Effect 3, and hopefully Bioware have gained some sense, and won’t have half of it only available in America.

Speaking of Bioware, I think I’ll add something else Canadian to this video.

what a brilliant romantic song.

And, of course, the vlog of Toby’s with a somewhat more hilarious then usual part about 5 seconds in, stuff about hills.

I think that’s everything I feel like typing at the moment. Thanks for reading, Ta-ta.

Love Willski.

Lots of Simon & Garfunkel

Good Evening

Thanks to my aquatic fiend, i have the line ‘At any convenient time’ stuck in my head, so it’s my pleasure to bring you A  Hazy Shade of Winter, by Simon & Garfunkel:

With lyrics!!!

Time, time, time, see what’s become of me
While I looked around
For my possibilities
I was so hard to please
But look around, leaves are brown
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Hear the salvation army band
Down by the riverside, it’s bound to be a better ride
Than what you’ve got planned
Carry your cup in your hand
And look around, leaves are brown now
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Hang on to your hopes, my friend
That’s an easy thing to say, but if your hope should pass away
It’s simply pretend
That you can build them again
Look around, the grass is high
The fields are ripe, it’s the springtime of my life

Ahhh, seasons change with the scenery
Weaving time in a tapestry
Won’t you stop and remember me
At any convenient time
Funny how my memory slips while looking over manuscripts
Of unpublished rhyme
Drinking my vodka and lime

Ilook around, leaves are brown now
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Look around, leaves are brown
There’s a patch of snow on the ground…

Look around, leaves are brown
There’s a patch of snow on the ground…

Look around, leaves are brown
There’s a patch of snow on the ground…

I think it’s the third time I’ve posted that…

Benski, my fiend, You believe that I am a rock – Simon & Garfunkel is a song that can be accurately applied to me.

Personally I think this is more fitting. (Feel free to ignore the photos. I did.)

A most Peculiar Man, Simon & Garfunkel.

Although, I’m forced to admit, I’m not suicidal. I know, you’re all disappointed, hoping I’d off myself soon, apologies about that.

I can’t think of a nice closing statement, so that is all.

Thanks for reading, Ta-ta.

Love Willski.

Another wasted day…

Posted in Fragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition, Halo Reach, Halo Wars, Tobuscus/Toby Turner, XBOX 360 on 29/01/2011 by willsalt

Good Evening.

Yup, nothing productive done today, I spent my morning on Halo Wars, my afternoon of Dragon Age, and my evening on Reach.

I say ‘my morning’, because I’m about 6 hours behind the rest of you.

I still haven’t renamed my ‘Fragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition’ category have I… I might just leave it like that, for fun you know, I can’t think of anything more entertaining then that.

Weird people do weird things

That is all, because i really have nothing to post… I just want the ’29’ to turn orange.

Thanks for reading, and hopefully tolerating. Ta-ta.

Love Willski.

Driving lesson of unknown number, conversations, Dead Space 2 Literal trailer, and more Canadian entertainment…

Posted in advertising, Arrogant Worms, Benski, Driving, Driving Lessons, Family, Friendlings, Matt, Microsoft Office 2010, Music, Other Software, PC, Rants, reminiscing, tedium, thoughts, Tobuscus/Toby Turner, Toby Turner on 28/01/2011 by willsalt

Good Evening.

As you may know, I usually write the title first, to remind me what to write, not doing that this time. Mostly because I forgot to open firefox, just Word…

So, today, the most significant occurrence would, of course, be my driving lesson. This week my driving was appalling, even worse than usual, which is a very difficult thing to accomplish. Not all my fault, for example, coming off a roundabout, but pulls in in front of me, then stops, much fun was had there, and suicidal crazy drivers, on the wrong side of the road, get back onto the correct, left, side hit the kerb, then drive off opening and closing their doors.

The most interesting part had to be the conversations with driving instructor, who went to hospital with some disease, and came out with an even worse disease, hence missing lessons. The car, some Citroen thing, has a display on the dash board telling you what gear it thinks you should be in, so, for example, when you’re rolling down a hill, at almost 50mph, (in third gear for some reason) approaching a blind corner, it tells you to change into 4th. Personally I’d much rather break. I didn’t. That’s there to try and put you in the most economical gear, use least petrol, so I suggested they save energy by disabling the lights in the display, in fact just all the lights, including head lights, indicators, break lights, etc. Driving instructor, whose name once again eludes me, quite correctly pointed out that this would result in more crashed. Excellent! Fewer cars on the road! A brilliant plan, don’t you think? Evidently I don’t.

Talks about global warming, the cyclists are saving the planet, get a horse! They’re cute, but you do have to feed and stable them, which while cheaper than petrol, if your car breaks down, you don’t have to shoot it, and buy a new one.

As I mentioned, my driving was a bit crap, within 5 minutes I’d stalled more times than Benski had in his entire lesson, somewhat disappointing… so I pointed out it’s better to fail spectacularly then just fail, so I might as well keep stalling, maybe run down some pedestrians, (I remember Charles Langer’s pronunciation of that, Ped-A-Strains, hilarious) maybe a lamp post… kind of worrying when instructor agreed…

We did of course cover the lovely topic of the horror that is the driving test, which is held on British roads, with their faded road markings, and excessive spine compressing, life shortening speed bumps… so yes, no road markings, where to go to turn right? Presumably to the right, what if I don’t know which way is right? Apparently that’s a common problem during driving tests, forgetting your primary school education, is 70 higher than 30? We’ll never know, driving examiners pointing where to go… Anyway, to solve the problems with that, just always turn the wrong way. Simple! Also, see if the examiner will learn, will (s)he start telling you to go the wrong way? Then you can start doing what you’re told, great fun!

You’ll probably find a lot of this posted in Bens Blog… which you should read; it’s generally more interesting than mine.

So, what else happened today? I left the memory card for my phone at home, yay!

I’ve been becoming more progressively fonder of Toby (I could probably just leave it there… but I won’t) where was i? Toby’s’ Dead space 2 literal trailer, as you may have seen yesterday on Facebook, it’s growing on me, like a fungus. That reminds me of Gingie… ‘When they made me they threw away the mould, unfortunately it’s started growing back’. Was he quoting someone there? Perhaps, perhaps not.

Anyway, Dead space 2 literal trailer, which may be featured below. If I remember to add it.

Who wants more of that marvellous Canadian entertainment? Who cares, here’s some anyway.

Yeah, if I forget to add the videos, that won’t make sense.

So, anything else noteworthy? Nope? Excellent.

Thanks for reading, have a lovely/ painful weekend, depending who you are, Ta-ta.

Love Willski.

become a meatartian!

Good Evening.

I’ve heard the screams of the vegetables, scream scream scream
Watching their skins being peeled, having their insides revealed
Grated and steamed with no mercy, burning off calories
How do you think that feels, bet it hurts really bad
Carrot juice constitutes murder, and that’s a real crime
Greenhouses prisons for slaves, let my vegetables grow
It’s time to stop all this gardening, it’s dirty as hell
Let’s call a spade a spade, it’s a spade it’s a spade it’s a spade

But yeah, the Arrogant Worms are awesome.

That is all.

Thanks for reading.

COMPUTER RECLAMATION!

Yeah, I don’t know why I typed that in capitals…

Finally got computer back, it was stolen by a fish, anda Liam, who wanted to play Thing Thing 2 Arena… good game…

I say my computer, it’s not… it’s just one of the computers in Study centre that I happened to log on on…

anyway, today, chemistry exam, that was fun, if mildly annoying… in that there was quite a lot on synthesis, which i don’t really know…

Reach tonight, weekly challange sounds fun! Should be doing that with Benski, and Gingie.

Winter Contingency: LASO

Complete Winter Contingency, Legendary, All Skulls On (LASO).

My god! They’ve finally updated my picture, thing… Thanks you Bungie!

no spelling/grammar checking by Microsoft office, hence the crappy-ness…

double biology next, with the majority of the class disappeared to do Maths-ey things… mechanics exam or something… that’ll be fun… but I’ve got 20 minutes to ponder how the devil i managed to get 43 views last sunday, most of which are on Saturdays post

so, while I do that, I bid you an insincere farewell, Thanks for reading. Ta-ta.

Love Willski.
