I'm Completely Exhausted

I haven't had a good night's sleep all week. Fucking hell.



I think I'll take my seasonal depression back


Thank you reptilian overlords

Macho words of wisdom 
I need this.

Oh look it's me

This dude asks the real questions

Very clever Fanta
Have a good weekend folks. I'll be happy to just get some sleep.

Stay Safe Online

I've been getting lost in some very weird rabbit holes on YouTube lately. I haven't had much better to do. I recently watched a video about some of the most messed up examples of catfishing. For those not in the know, catfishing is where someone pretends to be someone they aren't online. It's popular with scammers of course, but it spreads much further than that. There are lots of stories about people who run dating profiles with pictures of other people and stuff. That's another example of catfishing. The stuff in this video was pretty extreme though; one of the stories was about a guy who catfished his daughter pretending to be a young boy to get nude pictures of her. Their "relationship" ended when the "boy" committed suicide, but not before admitting "he" sent the pictures to her father. Not content with just conning his daughter out of naked pictures, he then abused her for a year with her having no idea about what really happened. As far as she knew a nice boy she met online killed himself and then her dad abused her. 

I think the most fucked up thing about that is that it's not an isolated incident. 

What's incredible though is that people still haven't learned their lessons about staying safe online. I'm not saying you shouldn't trust anyone you meet online. I've made a lot of friends online and have even gotten into long distance relationships. But there are steps you can take to protect yourself. Actually one time I met someone who was convinced that I was catfishing them. Things were going great until one day she exploded and accused me of being someone that lives near her. 

While it's obvious that the pictures people send might be fake, there are many other ways to prove you are who you say you are. If you really like someone then you would be comfortable calling them. Applications like Skype even allow you to have video calls with people. While even they can be faked, it's not a step most catfishers would be willing to take. 

Stay safe when you use the internet. Never give your personal information to people that you don't trust. Find out more about the person on the other end of the line and be sure they are who they say they are. Don't let yourself be strung along by a fantasy. 

Also don't watch YouTube videos about paranormal shit in the middle of the night. I've seen some weird fucking shit.

The Cold is setting In

Well it's that wonderful time of year where the weather starts getting really cold and I can't feel my fingers late at night. No I'm serious sometimes I can't feel my fingers properly when the night sets in. Jess says that gaming at night in winter gives you an idea of what it's like to have arthritis and she's right. It can feel like that.

Still I'd much rather be too cold than too hot. I've always said this. I prefer autumn and winter to summer. At least if you're too cold you can just put more clothes on or turn up the heat. I for one have a fuzzy dressing gown I enjoy wearing. If you're too hot then you're screwed really. So I don't mind the cold too much. I just wish we could do something about the heating in my house. It's been busted for years but my dad has never had someone in to take a look at it. We could never afford it I guess.

The only problem I have is that it makes working a little tougher. I like to work downstairs free from the distractions of my room. For some godforsaken reason the downstairs is much colder than the upstairs. So I get pretty cold and tired trying to work. Oh well. Let it never be said that I don't work hard.

How's the weather going where you are?

At Least Today Is Actually Friday

It's now the weekend and I don't know what that means because I don't have weekends anymore. Oh well.


Don't stand on zombie boobs people

It's the dream

Take THAT America

It helps keep me going too

Maybe she just married an owl

That's a pretty big slice. I need it. 

You'd think it would be a good one

It's a good plan

Did you know there are more words that break that rule than obey it?
Have a good weekend folks. I'll see y'all on Monday.

Turns Out Today is Thursday

You may have noticed that yesterday I put up asking a post if it was Thursday. After several hours I realised that yesterday was in fact Wednesday. I decided to leave the post up to poke a little fun at myself. Plus it had some real content in it anyway with me sharing my thoughts on V For Vendetta.

I'm not sure why I thought that yesterday was Thursday. It's been a while since I've been completely confused by the date like that. Given that I regularly stay up past midnight it's all too easy to get lost in the day of the week. After all, I go to sleep and wake up on the same day. So it's understandable that I could get confused.

Well anyway today is in fact Thursday, and there's nothing remarkable at all about today really. I might get a bath later but that's about it. I hope I can get a bath later. I need one. For now though I'm just going to get back to work. Have a good Thursday folks. I like Thursday. It's much calmer than a Wednesday.

Is it Thursday Already?

I can't remember much from the past few days. Just that it was over too quickly. I managed to have quite a bit of fun though thanks to having Jess over. She'll be going home later though. So even that too must come to an end. Ah well.

Yesterday we watched the movie V For Vendetta. It's been a long time since I watched it and Jess has never seen it before. It feels almost weird to say this but it's definitely a movie that I've outgrown. There was a time when I thought it was great but that time has passed. Now I can see it for the pretentious preaching it is. I still enjoyed it, but it wasn't nearly as good as I remember it being. Jess was unimpressed too. The story of V For Vendetta is still a good and enjoyable one, but it's hardly the political masterpiece it's held up to be. Still worth a watch if you enjoy that kind of thing though. Do yourself a favour and read the comic though.

For now I have a whole lot of work to get done. It's going to take a while, especially with all these road trips I'll be taking today.

I Didn't Pass

Well I got back from my driving test and I failed. Again. Right now I'm drunk. Whee. Gonna try again in the new year. Not much else to say. Until Thursday!

So Very Tired

I had another night of interrupted sleep. The only difference is this time I have a lot of work to do. Damn.

Fuck you aluminium

I need this card

I love the internet 

Quite likely

What are they teaching at this German school?

I wonder how many people try this, and how many prostitutes go along with it

They really are


Nothing could go wrong

See you next week folks. Assuming I live that long.

All Work and No Sleep Makes Mark a Dull Boy

Thankfully I don't actually have all that much work to do today. It's not so bad given how much work I had to do on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. It feels like I rarely ever stopped. It was good though, to have that much to do. Especially if you're being paid for it. Today though, given my lack of sleep last night, I'm more than willing to have an easy day with just a couple of jobs.

I really didn't get much sleep at all last night. I had some really weird dreams and I kept waking up. I even saw the sunrise. I haven't seen that in ages. I don't know what caused it all to happen either. Hopefully it was just a one night thing.

I saw one of the worst movies ever made last night. It was Friday the 13th Part Four. This movie is legitimately just bad. It's not even so bad it's good, or so dumb it's funny. It was just bad. I don't know why I sat through the whole thing. My guess is the bottle of wine helped. If all you want from a movie is nudity and violence then there are better movies than this one. I couldn't recommend it to anyone.

It's a shame that the movie was so bad given that I was really interested in the first Nightmare on Elm Street. I can see myself watching some more of those movies, but not so much the Friday the 13th ones. In my eyes, it was Freddy that won the battle of Freddy vs Jason.

Which was, itself, a pretty bad movie.

Halloween Safety Tips

Given that the spookiest day of the year is just around the corner, I figured I would share some great Halloween safety tips to keep you and your young ones safe this year. Personally I will be staying in with the door locked and ignoring anyone that knocks on the door. It sounds harsh but everyone here lives upstairs. They'll have given up by the time I get downstairs. Kids have no patience.

Have a safe and spooky Halloween!

Friday Fun

I just accepted a package on behalf of someone else but thankfully it only took them a few minutes to come and collect it. Seems the postman only just missed them.

I'll be moving to Finland tomorrow

Lousy cunts

This is pretty scummy

This guy just isn't trying hard enough

Save yourself for Jesus

This is what British men are actually like Hollywood

Works great for me

Come on Disney, this is the main thing that pirates do!

Looks like things are getting pretty S P O O K Y 

These are the essentials
Have a good weekend folks. I'll see you on the other side.

Keeping Busy

My apologies for the very late post my friends. I had a driving lesson early in the day and wanted to write a post when I got back. Then I decided to take a quick walk into town when I got back, and then I saw that I have a lot of work to get done and not a lot of time to get it done. Needless to say I really am keeping busy.

I have about three or four hours worth of work left ahead of me. I hope it doesn't take that long given that it's already the middle of the afternoon. Can't be helped though. Someone ordered three lots of articles with a 24 hour delivery. I could certainly use the extra money.

The driving lesson went smoothly with no accidents as always. Someone clearly had some accidents though as I ran into three ambulances during the lesson. We also drove past an actual crash, but I couldn't get a good look. One of the downsides of being the driver is that you can't stop and stare at a car crash as you go past it. Not unless you want to cause another one anyway.

Now I have no more driving lessons left until my test on the 6th in a week and a half. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous about it. All that failure really gets to a person. Still, they do say that the third time is a charm. Now to settle in and buckle down and do a lot of work.

See you on the other side, assuming I survive all this.

And He's Back

So I survived Saturday without any hiccups, other than drinking too much, and woke up to find my brother home on Sunday. So he managed to survive a month in Vietnam too. That's good. What's not so good is how little he's changed. I find it utterly remarkable that someone can live in an other country, in another continent, for a whole month and not change. I expected him to come back different, but he didn't. He shut himself up in his room, didn't talk to anyone, and has stayed there pretty much ever since. I guess the more things change the more they stay the same.

There were a few physical changes. He's cut his hair and is noticeably thinner, but that's about it. As far as I can tell he's not changed on the inside. He's saying he'll get a job now at least so I guess that's something. He plans on being a delivery driver, which means that he'll get main ownership of the car. Luckily we do have a second car sitting in the garage waiting to be claimed. It was supposed to be mine when I passed my test but I failed. So now I have even more motivation to pass my test. I'll be able to start paying rent again, I'll be able to drive my dad around, and I'll be able to get Jess and take her back home whenever she needs it. Man I hope I pass this time.

I'd like to think that if I left the country for an extended period of time I would change. I would be different. I guess time will tell if my brother has changed at all.

Tomorrow Is Going to Suck

Given that my brother gets home at six in the morning on Sunday my dad is staying overnight with a relative near London to get there on time. That means I'll be completely alone tomorrow night. I hate being completely alone. At least I'll have the cats.

Furniture puns are best puns

I love the Scots

More proof cats are better

I hope this is real. I need to rewind many DVDs 
I don't even have a car. I have to cry in my room.

I need a chameleon

One of the few times I would turn down a cookie

Go on you special snowflake

Alfred was a savage

Anyone could tell you that
Have a good weekend folks. I'll try to make the best of tomorrow.
