First Day Back
2012
unknownj
I've had a reasonable first day in Brighton actually, in fact, it's been good. I picked up economy food to last me a few days, and spent very little on it. Then I picked up a new frying pan, new plug socket extension thing, new plates, a butter dish, a new desk lamp... That cost a small fortune, but it's money that won't need spending again. And I didn't do anything silly like buying pizza on my first night or anything - I just had a low key dinner...

Anyway, this afternoon, I invited Mice over for a bit, since I've missed talking to her. Spent a few hours chatting, while I had lunch, and then came up to my room to listen to some music and chat some more... She's been being silly lately, but I won't get into that - suffice it to say, I was given the opportunity to laugh lots at her, which I did. In a nice friendly way - I've told her she can pop over any time, for as long as she wants, if she needs to get away from her house and stuff...

Then the two of us and Jimbo went to the level to play some Frisbee. As suspected, my hand-eye coordination has improved massively, meaning that I was able to catch stuff that I would never have been able to before. Sadly, my ability to throw has not - I'll get tips at practice... Sports fair on Tuesday, so I'll be wandering around interacting with people, scary. That being said, it turns out that I can interact with people fine, and I just never noticed the transition.

My point is proved by the fact that after a couple of hours of Frisbee, this woman and her 18ish month old son were walking through the park. The boy had a ball, and he put it down and started kicking it. It came near me, so I kicked it back to him, and that was it - he wanted to play with me. The next ten minutes or so consisted of me playing football with this little boy who couldn't even speak (or perhaps he simply wouldn't). I spoke to his mother a bit, she was very impressed with how well he was playing considering he wasn't even two years old yet...

He had the biggest blue eyes, and light blonde hair, and wanted to play football with strangers... He reminds me of me at that age. Or, rather, what my parents tell me about myself when I was a kid. I used to go up to strangers on the beach and ask them to play ball with me. So yeah, the kid really touched a nerve, and he was ever so sweet... Makes me feel broody again, damnit... Want to have babies... *sigh*

And now I'm home... Jimbo and I watched the first in the new series of Friends, downloaded from the US this afternoon, and despite my fears, it wasn't all that bad... Some noteworthy jokes, at least, even if the storyline managed to piss me off a fair bit.

After Friends, Jimbo went round to Petra's, and so I'm here alone. I took some new pictures with my webcam, intended to come well away from the uplifting blonde surfer type dude pictures I had before. The "u r hott" ones. So these are a little bit darker, both in lighting and tone. And maybe that'll make everything okay again :o)

that picture is reminding me of someone.... it's not you don't worry i haven't gone insane..well actually it does remind me of you or else that would be stoopid but i mean that it's reminding me of someone other than you...the pose it's someone... aaaargh! i think it's someone famous. hmmmmmm.....

Gary Oldman?

Nah, that's probably asking too much.... :o)

Thanks, but I was kinda hoping to make my own....

I want kids too.
Too bad that starbucks coffee left me impotent...

*cries*

I know your pain - using PCs since I was a toddler fried my nuts with radiation.....

i think the act of making kids is a good percentage of the appeal. i was wondering, since you're in england, and you would know more about it than i... ever heard of the university of east anglia? good, bad, neutral? we have some exchange thing running with them and i was wondering what any englanders would think of it? if you could help i would be more grateful... just how people think of it, general opinion. it's a bit foggy over on this side of the "pond" (as some call it) and they always just tell us positive things. it's in norwich, i hear...

UEA isn't bad, but it's not among the best by a long shot...
