Imminent Laxity 2: The return of the snooze.

I have been suuuch a lazy bitch lately. The last couple of days have been sleeping, reading and watching series on my Machine (Prison Break is the shit!). Aberat is shaping up to be quite a kewl book despite Clive barker's track record. It seems really fantstical and childlike (sometimes in a creepy way). iVE GOT MY GRUBBY PAWS ON SOME COOL MUSIC AND WILL HOPEFULLY BOUNCE BLISSFULLY (Damn Capslock.....) to it while I get my Portfolio updated. I'm thinking about the following themes. I'll try to do one of each.

Illustration themes
1- Horror - Zombies, Vampires, Cthuliod
2- Medieval Japanese - Geisha, Ninja, Samurai, Monks, etc.
3- Fantasy - I feel like something Foresty, like a creature or something.
4- Historic war - Like ...... A U- Boat full of eeeeevil nazi's.... maybe.
5- Steampunk - A cityscape or concept art of stuff, eg. like a automated carraige.

Oh yeah last weekend I played 14 and a half hours of Dota, It was sick. Dota is Ruining my life.
I watched "A History of violence." it was quite entertaining. The HtH combat was brutal and quick. None of the fancy crap that happens in hollywood. ( I f you step on someones neck...snap, crackle, pop. One Coffin coming right up.)
On a similar note I want a t- shirt that reads "I'm angry at the world." Then people might stop asking me stupid questions. If there is one thing that hacks me off these days, people that make statements without thinking about thier "golden nugget" of wisdom. Arrgh, considered thought seems a rarity these days............wait, this is turning into a rant. Abort. Ctr+ Alt + Del.
Ahh well. I have been chatting to mike and the Pratchett Larp (Discworld) seems to be his all consuming passion now and I'll be helpping with the props. (read making them from scratch.)
And I thought my Holidays were going to be blissful inactivity. I'm busier down here than in Cape Town, Sigh.

P.S. - I need to take up gym or martial arts again, revenge of the gut seems to just around the corner.

The holiday begins here.

Ok, I haven't posted for a while but exams and varsity work kept me busy...you know how it is.
I drove to Pe tuesday night to arrive at my house ready to fall into bed when three teenage boys were sleeping in my room. My younger brother seemed to have had a get together.
One of them fell asleep next to his vomit bucket......yay. After a 4 hour nap in my Dad's room I felt kak but alive....better than the dog a hit fekaken hard on the way down. It did surprisingly little damage to my car, besides breaking a fender bracket and fucking up a indicator. The dog was nowhere to be seen, hope it was ok.....I doubt it though. I visited a friend later in the day at his gaming store and talked nonsense for two hours. I had to go to tobies (club) that night to meet Lillian, Wayne and Ellamy. God I hate that place, it turned out OK though.(The wonders of a couple of drinks.) Spent today lazing about and had dinner with my folks at the spur.(I don't get to eat steak often these days.) I started to play Tyranids and have about 1250 points worth of figures and am enjoying the painting and customising. Maybe I can get a couple of games against people here in Pe. Ah well, I have nothing further to say.
