As I sit here drinking my drink, staring at my Xbox Dashboard, I can't help but think purple really wasn't the best choice for a background. But that's not even an issue, because I can just change it... later. Then again, with the new Dashboard coming in soon, I don't think i'll bother, I mean, it's been purple for as long as I care to remember, it's not like it's making me any less masculine right?
Earlier on this morning, I was filing my nails and contemplating todays outfit, based on weather, mood, and just what looks good on me, and watching television. The most delightful show darlings! A chat show called Trisha, or Trisha Goddard, my mind does elude me on these matters. I look up to the screen, which is filled with thee most vribrant colours, and I notice, the young chap on the box, is indeed somebody I know. At first I thought I was imagining it, so I put down the usual early morning Vodka, rubbed my eyes, and checked again. To my surprise, it was indeed the boyfriend of my cousin, I immediately leapt to the phone to get in touch with everybody who could be watching this programme, but probably wasn't, and we all watched in unison as their problems were unfolded for the nation to see. Yes, quite.
It has been a while since I last seen that particular cousin of mine, and her boyfriend. But I am familliar with the issues and their personalities. Surprisngly, Eric comes out, saying that Janet (who is my cousin) was not allowing him to be alone with his children. This all stems back to April when Eric nearly overdosed on the most dreadful substance, sleeping pills! He claims to have been in an altered state of mind, when he told his girldfriend of 14years, mother to his four children, to F'off. Janet, however, deemed it an unworthy excuse and subsequently removed him from her house, and out of reach of their children. She does take them round to see him, but refuses to allow him to be alone. Could Trisha solve this problem?
Well the dilemma for me, was not the outcome of the show. No, rather it was how big of a spectacle they were going to make of themselves. You see, they're not the most refined characters in our family, not like I. "How do you do madam?", "Good day old chap" and all of that gafore. These people were indeed common class, bottom of the barrel, the type to put their problems before the country and admit to being crazy. Eric, however, came out with a calm, cool, persona. He spoke correctly, very polite and portrayed his story in a heart-wrenching way. Janet, did not. She was very hostile, very rude and very embarrasing. Which is just what I expected, from both of them... so it was only half as embarrasing.
Trisha, who has always been an overrated chat show host in my opinion, was unable to resolve their issues, and sent them home without a solution. Janet did say she would consider the matter in more depth, but we know that that will not be the case. Still, it was a lively start to the morning, allow me to assure you.
(If you don't recognise the humour in that, blah)
So last night I was playing the Left 4 Dead demo with 3 other GTP bloggers. Expert difficulty, is very intense, but still fun. You have to really be careful, and even if you are being really careful, the hordes (yes I used that as a connector to Gears) of Zombies that come running at you, still overrun you, with little chance of getting out with everyone alive. This problem was added to the problem of four people running their seperate ways, and we weren't entirely successful. After a while I knocked down the game to hard, and away we went, still having trouble in places, especially with "Tanks" but other than that we did it. Very good game, very funny, especially when Ruth commented on how poorly the Zombie on the ground was "playing dead". We of course know, that Zombies don't play dead, they are dead... but in a living dead kinda way, which when you think about it, doesn't actually make any sense what-so-ever.
After we did that, we ended up on Gears. playing Horde (see, connector). I'm not sure what wave we got too, but we did surprisngly well. All up until the point my internet went a little weird and I was removed from Xbox Live. I do apolgise for leaving without saying anything, but I really had no choice in the matter, I too was not informed of my connections decision to cease. After it came back, I decided it was a little late to hit the games again and left it for the night. Curious, as to what level y'all made it up to?
Erm... so I think that's about it really. Everything is good, was having a few issues with my sisters house, but they've been sorted. They took an entirely new direction as it goes. A blunder by my cousin has resulted in us having to find a new house, which we have, which took... a hour or so after finding out my cousin is a selfish jackass, and hadn't sorted out the details, which resulted in her losing the house for my sister. Complicated stuff, however, it does mean my new home to be, will be alot closer to home and in a place I know very well. It's currently in the middle of a divorce settlement row, but after the money-grabbing chick has been bought out then we're set to get everything sorted. This does mean that I'm here until after Christmas though, New Year too. I'm not entirely sure when I'm going to be settled, but goddamn I hope it happens soon. I need to get back into my own bed. I wake up in weird states of mind, thinking things that aren't actually true. Which I've suffered from for a long long time, but settle once I'm in my own bed again. Kinda started rambling on there.
You all have a nice day and a good weekend, starting tomorrow.
I hope all is well with everyone, and I shall catch you for a game soon, hopefully.
