I forgot how much fun could be had at an arcade. I love games in general. I can't play RPG's though. But genres like racing, shooting, strategy and stealth are what take up most of my gaming time. At the arcade we were playing Outrun 2. My sister, little brother and I in some rapid multi-player action! I can't remember the last time I played Outrun, probably back on the Mega-Drive or something. It was awesome, and we drawn in a little crowd with out silly banter and insults based on driving ability. I won the majority of the games, all but 3, one going to my slightly younger sister... which she bragged about all the way back home.
I tend to go through little fads, at one point I considered trying my hand at gardening. I'm not really sure what brought that on but for a little while I thought about it. I cleaned up the garden of weeds, trimmed the hedges and such and made the place ready for seeds to be planted. I never got around to it though. I think it was due to the unco-operation of the garden itself. Not long after I dug it up it started with the weeds again. It really became too much for me to be bothered with. If I'd have actually planted something I'd have probably obssessed about it until it showed signs of life. I could imagine myself sat there on the ground infront of it for hours on end, telling it to grow. I'm not patient in the slightest.
I have no tolerance for stupid adverts on TV. I am sick to death of lawyers and solicitors and loan company commercials on TV. "Have you had a trip or fall at work, or on the street in the last 3years? If so, YOU could claim compensation" It's ridiculous, mostly how they go about trying to reel people in. PICTURE! is THEE worst offender in this crappy-advert-era that I see. So the first guy is talking to 'Picture' on the phone about a loan, okay, so first off, he's talking about football to them... that wouldn't happen. THEN he asks his wife home much they're borrowing, Like you don't know before-hand how much you wish to borrow on your home. So that annoyed me, and THEN, the second advert in the PICTURE trilogy of crap is a guy talking about his perfect family, his perfect home and perfect life. WHICH isn't so perfect cause he needs a loan. The guy lives nextdoor to the man who got a loan in the first advert. And they're going to a football game together, he walks out the door to find his friend holding a phone and saying "what you need, is to talk to picture" handing him the phone, which apparently is already ringing 'PICTURE' ARGH
I hate them I hate them I hate them! This is one of the soul reasons I don't watch TV anymore, too much stupid crap on it that drives me crazy. There are a few good programmes. DEXTER is one of those. I love Dexter, I've only in the early hours of this morning finished watching the first series. If you haven't seen it you should definitely check it out. I can't wait for series 2.
I always knew that being in a relationship was complicated. After my first serious relationship went bottom-side up, I decided that I was going to put myself through anything like that again. I guess in the end it all worked out for me, being in that situation with her and everybody else that was involved (I don't mean she cheated on me) made me end up where I am today, and I'm thankful for that. But I ended up in another relationship for someone I really care about, and thought I'd want to be with. I don't know what changed, but something did and now I'm not interested in being with her, I don't want to hurt her. But I don't want to be in a relationship, the last 10/11 months have been fine, I can't complain, there have been no problems bar a little jealousy and paranoia on her side. I feel bad about it, and don't know how to break it to her. I guess it's a cliche but it's not her, it's me.
At some point in the last few I've lost the ability to cook. I'm not saying I'm a great chef of some kind but I could cook little things. Pancakes being pretty easy. Or so I thought... well it didn't work out as planned and it ended up sticking to the pan. I'm not going to try again, I have a track record with messing things up. I've set fire to my frying pan, blown up my microwave and at one point, filled my kitchen with thick black smoke when something I was cooking in the oven caught fire.
