I am sorry for my absence these last few weeks. I have had an incredibly busy / crazy time, which included travelling to a foreign country, losing a laptop, having my internet connection cut off, teaching a 5 day course and losing two weeks of work I was already behind on due to said laptop crash.
I am going to be posting here a lot more , since I feel I finally have stuff to say here again =)
Hey guys. It's been a while.
My laptop died today =( So i am even further behind on work than I was to begin with.
It might be a while before I am back for good =\
Anyway. One of the things I have written on here before, was my first crush. He was one of my best friends in high school, and for many years I had a secret pining for him. Everything came to a head one year over new year's eve, when I was at a friend's place for a NYE party, and I had had too much to drink.
I've finally watched the first season of The L Word.
I like Shane the most. She is so cool.
Rarely do I come across a site that has such a sheer emotional hold over me. The only thing that comes close is PostSecret
I'm back in vancouver. I sure missed this place =P
going to be here until the 18th, but sadly i won't be going to san fran on this trip
and having just paid 8 euro for an hour's of internet access, i feel kind of obliged to use it.
the only reason I _really_ have my laptop out is because i managed to completely run down my ipod batteries, while the thing wasn't even plugged in. D'oh.
my next flight (to vancouver) is thankfully a little shorter (10.5 hours as opposed to 12), but there's no meal on board and i have already finished the book i was reading (player of games by iain m banks).
I guess that means i HAVE to go shopping to pick some things up =)

Just because I don't say anything,
Doesn't mean I don't like you.
I open my mouth and I try and i try
But no words came out.
Without 40 oz. of social skills
I'm just an ass in the crack of humanity.
I'm just a huge manitee.
A huge manitee.
And besides you're probably holding hands
With some skinny, pretty girl that likes to
Talk about bands and
All I wana do is ride bikes with you
And stay up late and watch cartoons.
Duck Tales, shirt tails, Talespin, Sailor Moon, GI Joe, Robotech, Ron Jeremy, Schmoo.
It was very very very good. The acting, especially from Heath Ledger was phenomenal.
Having read the short story, I doubted the pretty boy's ability to pull off a very
emotionally troubled Ennis Delmar, but he managed fantastically.
I also came across a brokeback slash community on live journal : http://community.livejournal.com/brokebackslash/
mostly because I was looking for someone who did a story of what would happened if the story had a different ending. The human interest story on there is incredibly well written and very highly recommended.
Yesterday afternoon at 3pm table mountain caught fire, and the wild fire is still raging.
I actually live on the mountain (as in my back gate walks on to it).
It was fucking scary, as several homes were destroyed and at least one person has died. For a few hours we were the next to be evacuated, but VERY luckily the fire burned in the other direction. It stopped LITERALLY 2km from our house.
Three days ago I decided that I was going to get off my ass and learn to play an instrument, the acoustic guitar actually.
Then I came home from my trip these last few weeks, to find out that my housemates had won a $900 acoustic guitar, and that there's a guy 2 blocks down the road from me =).
I wish that my lawn was Emo, so that it would cut itself.
I spoke to her boyfriend, and it's apparently not quite as severe, but it's definitely a heart condition. She is at the hospital with the specialist at the moment, and I am trying to track down my brother and will probably be flying up to johannesburg in the next day.
[Drhubbard] watched this film called 'anal lesbians' the other day.
[Drhubbard] they spent about half the film going through the fridge labelling everything..
