    I slept three and a half hours and then mixed six bands TO PERFECTION. I think I've earned a fucking medal.

    Now I'm going to die, and tomorrow I'm playing a live improv soundtrack to NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD.

    And then I'll really die.

    It will be a glorious death Taphead. Absolutely fucking glorious with medals and broken amplifiers stacked around your corpse stuffed into a coffin with you cradling your last guitar while women (and quite a few men) tear off their clothes in grief.

    I'm also quite sure that a few of us will pitch in some money for a digital recording of this set.

    "He died well" I shall say.

    Today I paid off my camera! So it's officially mine now!

    my health played up bad earlier this year.

    @Labyrinthine: Congratulations on your degree.Well done.

    @Rachael Tyrell:Thanks for words of encouragement around my disability.And to everyone else too.A big hug.

    @taphead: Excellent.Make that little shit Cooper pay.He's a crap zombie!

    @oldhat:Own camera.Marvelous!

    Blooming heck! The mad woman thing is driving to pick me up.It's 6 a.m.She's pissed off with me.I'm scared.Still,it's all part of the game.

    Before i forget.It's time for me to say i'm still alive.It's a fooking miracle!!

    All my love kids.

    @oldhat: Paying off debts is a wonderful thing. Here's to paying off whatever's left, if there's anything left.

    Been a good week. Went to review a puppet show for a local arts charity. Not quite bat country but interesting none the less. Very Eastern European animation in feel.

    Then took my bike (see below) out for a run to a local pub putting on an arts festival. Saw a friend performing her play about a nurse on the Eastern Front in 1915.

    for the past few weeks I've been writing 100 word stories for this group A friend has just agreed to illustrate my short The Smile.

    This has all been followed by a lazy Sunday

    Made my first batch of fudge of the season tonight. My stomach hates me now. I don't even care.

    Fudge, for me, is only a once a year thing. From the time we're done with the Thanksgiving leftovers until New Year's Eve, I can make as much of it as I want. But once the new year has come, there is only the fudge left over from the night before, of which there is little, if any. Any other time of the year, eating fudge is blasphemy. So I'm getting my fill while I can.

    On more or less a whim, I bought the full version of Manga Studio last night. Although they do have 60% off it at the moment (until the 30th) if anyone's been holding out. I'd wanted to try drawing again for a long time (haven't drawn or painted seriously for 18 or so years), and stupid as it sounds, I'm very seldom anywhere I can doodle/scribble on paper. So yeah, I'll give it a go and see what I can do.

    First day on the new job. Nervous as hell, but everyone's being very cool so far... and there is, apparently, a never-ending supply of coffee to the communications office.

    Kill it Anchorbeard.

    @Singularity Jones It's well worth the price. It does one job, but it does it rather well.

    @Flecky - I'm a bit late to the party, but as one git with fucked nerves in his legs to another, congrats mate! Those bastards do regenerate. It's slow, but hell I don't feel someone's driving a nail through either of my feet at the moment (kicked in one of the shins? Perhaps.) and there were years where that's just how things were. Keep up the recovery and soon those nerves could start screaming at you constantly. If that doesn't fill you with the NEED to kill, I don't know what will.

    As for me... I managed to find a actual book store that had a copy of the new Terry Pratchett book Snuff. It was the children's book store in town... random. I spent most of my free/sleeping time over the holiday devouring it. Highly recommended.

    You know what, if it gets me drawing things again it'll be worth it. I've just become aware of the monstrous, stupid hangup that I cannot draw because I can't bear to waste paper... I have pads and pads of paper, loads of stuff, art materials of all shapes and sizes, and I haven't drawn anything in nearly 20 years because I don't like wasting paper. Jesus wept, I need a damn good therapist...

    I woke up this morning.I watched The Descent for about the 8th time.I'm smoking a fag and drinking a brew listening to some cool break beat dance.I'm going into work.
    Yet once again by all that is dark and vile and dangerous i am fookin' ALIVE.

    It's yet another stinking miracle.And i love a miracle.

    Be cool kids!

    Every day is a miracle, I think. Another chance to take what you want, and burn the rest.

    Did ok but not great on the kanji test today. Really good job stymied by brain blocking efforts to remember. How does one get around this stupid thing? However, the conversation in Japanese with sensei went relatively well. She complimented me a lot and I understood everything she said even if I'm still slow at responding because my brain is trying to concoct responses my meager vocabulary can't handle.

    Took my dad to get a blood test first thing in the morning. Had to turn down brunch because of stupid community service but I'm insisting on a rain check. Reconfirmed that atheist != rationalist. Someone wrote "ASS" on a back window on my truck a couple days ago, discovered it this morning. Told family I did not have money to buy them stuff this Christmas. [All of these are in the "some one please gimme a vile hug *sad face*" category. It's been a long day.]

    Back to good things: watch a cartoon with the niece, steamed some sweet buns for her, my dad and me, there was spaghetti for dinner which I enjoyed with a tempranillo-shiraz (that I shared with my mom).

    @ All: Today you lot get a big sweaty hug from me.It's so big it's got a hidden agenda of a sexual nature.

    Yet i'm a good bloke and i'm only human so that's not a bad thing,eh?

    Take care today and stay vigilant.

    Back to watching Michael Clayton which i've not seen but seem to be enjoying.So that's not bad too.

    Before we move on to the December thread, I just want to give a big thank you to the month of November. It was by far the best month of the fucking year.

    In this month I found work that got me out of some debts and leaving me room for a spot 'o travel and Christmas gifts for family, I bagged me a wonderful guy and just...all the amazing little things that went down.

    Good fucking month.
