Shock my system with charisma
2012

Fits and tantrums are only temporary, and the urge to write is with me forever, so after a mere twenty four hours, I return...

It was raining when I woke up (though not in my room) for the first time properly here in quite a while. I walked down to the beach in the downpour, in my t-shirt, because people spend too much time trying to be warm and comfortable, and sometimes you have to just lead by example. The electricity station was buzzing, and I spent a while looking for sparks, and I didn't find them. Sometimes life sends me clues about how things will turn out, and I would do well to listen to them.

So then I got to the sea, and it was just as I hoped - massive waves pounding into a wall of pebbles where the waters had snatched away an entire layer of beach. With every wave, spray shot into the air just long enough to catch a ride on the wind into my face. I'd missed salt water stings, it's too long since I've been on a stormy beach. I stood by the sea and wished I could have my guitar with me, because it was the sort of weather that demands a heavy riff right back at the elements. Screaming into the wind, letting the gusts shake the strings on the guitar and just letting it all go. One day...

Frisbee lately has been good. On Friday, I dived for a disc and got it, thus looking cool to all who watched. And I played okay in the games too. Tonight, I managed to catch quite a few discs - I fumbled just one, and I only let a few throws go to the other team, and in most cases there were valid shots that I was just missing. As people get better, their cuts get better, and the whole game starts to flow better. I got a fair bit of criticism at times, but it was all constructive, and much of it was to do with the nuances of being indoors and the different style of play that demands. I'm learning...

For better or worse, I'm hosting a party here soon (against Jimbo's wishes, I think, but he'll just have to deal). Alex and Harry want a halloween party, and when I said that I might be doing something with the Frisbee team, they told me to just invite them along too. So, by way of subtly punishing them, I intend to do just that, and the party might as well be called a Frisbee party - our numbers will dwarf anybody else who comes. Costumes will be mandatory. Not sure about the date, but people from LJ are welcome to come too, so long as they don't expect to have my attention - that will be elsewhere, as I desperately try to keep things going. Further details to follow when I invent them...

Last night I told myself that if I got a good score with my first life in Quadnet, that things would go well with my new, uh, 'friend' today... I scored badly, but the actual number was 44,444. As people who read my religion post will know, I'm intensely superstitious, and therefore, while it's an indication that it wouldn't go well, it suggested that there was something lucky that was going to happen. Regardless, as far as I'm aware, things with her aren't going to go anywhere, that was the feeling I got this evening. I don't think I especially mind at this point. I'll see how things are on Wednesday, but I'm not expecting anything.

Tomorrow's lectures start at 2:00pm, and finish at 2:50pm. Busy day, huh... I spoke to Waggle about third year maths courses (there's a fair few maths grads on the team as it goes), and he gave me some advice about this year, which is good. After that, I may well take my guitar over to Shanu's house for a jam, I need to confirm times with him. And after that, I may well go to Club New York, with Shanu if he's up for it. I'll furthermore probably invite Cat to come as well, on the off-chance that they play ska there (which she quite likes). Otherwise, I may introduce her to The Escape on Tuesday. Spent much of today's Frisbee session talking to her, we get on well, this is good. Fear not, she's in the Friend Zone...

Am feeling very happy with how life is going right now... I feel I'm interacting with the Frisbee team in a way totally independent of my connection to Jimbo, which is good - by that, I mean that I'm not considered his friend, I'm a player in my own right. That's kinda the best way for it to be, it means I don't get tarred with the same brush as him for a start. Plus it means social interactions are easier for the both of us, we don't have to worry about the other at all. Seems to work...

My shoulder is killing me. I keep fucking it up, and I think I might go see the doctor about it soon. I've got until Wednesday for it to recover, or I'll go make an appointment - it really is a bit of a bother. Still, I'll deal.

I think that's probably it for now... I've been thinking a fair bit lately, and I might go all abstract on you later if you're really unlucky... :o)

We need to make a two-player version of Quadnet.

You read my mind - I had been thinking exactly the same thing a few days ago...

Perhaps I've found my final year project ;o)
