(The Dopefish, from Commander Keen IV - which I used to play when i was 5 when I wasn't killing monsters with chainsaws in Doom...)
Ha, anyway I've discovered that they are thinking of making Max Brooks' World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War is apparently being made into a movie by Paramount and... Brad Pitt????
Apparently there was a big bidding war for the rights between Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio to produce/make this.
Odd, huh. Well all I can say is, if you fuck this up Mr Pitt... I hope a swarm of Zombies digest you!
Anyway... That's all the news I have... A proper account of a fabled Zombie War, hopefully they won't hollywood-ise it.

Ah long weekend, why are you so short?
The oaks was good but... we never got to the karaoke place. Meh. the Oaks is still good fun.
Ooo... Tom bought Bioshock & Halo 3 last week so that was fun. I really like bioshock - best graphics to come out since Gears of War. Worth it, although if you're getting on PC make sure your graphics/ram is up to the task 'cause the graphics are awesome and it would be a shame to have to play it on low.
For the last month I was given extra work to do- which was doing all the mobile connections for the corporate guys & entering it in ICE , on top of my normal filing, cash collection/counting, packaging, contract checking, banking.
It would have been alright except they'd just hired a whole bunch of corp sales staff. 8 people all wanting me to connect up between 1-20 mobiles, package up those mobiles and organise for them to be sent out.
So... pretty much all I could do was the mobile side, and even that I was... ok.. blah blah blah, etc etc.
Anywho, I guess they noticed when 20 days worth of bill pay money to be sent to Telstra hadn't been sent that they'd kinda loaded me up a little too much. ha it was like $25000 in cash and $32000 in cheques... so much money, took me 4-5 hours to go through.
Anyway, fuck I'm boring.
Oo Kate, what was that fire thing across the road from you? was it back burning that went out of control?

I'm sure everyone already knows this, but I saw a trailer for 30 Days Of Night last week.... I'm so fucking excited!!!
This was the graphic novel that I've been wanting to get for the past 5 years (since about year 10) , I did eventually get a chance to read through the first and third one (sitting on the floor at borders, but I can't actually afford it... there like $45 each... and not that long, but the artist Ben Templessmith, who's an aussie, does some beautifual and eerie stuff... and violent.
I probably could afford to start getting them but... it just doesn't seem worth it... probably $20 in kinokinya, everything in borders is generally $10-$25 more then it should be... but since I don't have a chance to go into the city anymore... sigh.
It looks like it's shapping up to be a good movie, Josh Harnett aside (I don't really know anything he's been in so I have no idea if he can actually act...)
Also camping was. Now I'm burnt, but none the less...
It was a little sad though, one of the guys brought a bag full of magic cards (my guess was 20 decks)... fuck it's an annal game... I liked the pictures though... I think I would have liked it when I was in primary school but it's too complicated and... a little lame, but as we'd got sick of shithead and texas... yep.
There were two cars, and just as we were about to leave we realised the battery had gone flat... on both cars... and we were about 20-30min drive to the first property. pushing cars is fun. Luckily this gay couple happened to be going for a drive in blackheath and came and helped out... strangley they owned a bookstore right near Fraya.
Anywho. Sorry I didn't come out on saturday, I've never been camping and we;d been planning this for two-three weeks.
My jobs become a lot harder, I have way too much work, it's kinda fucked what with me being an office junior... i assumed I'd be running around and doing not much... I was looking forward to running around hornsby getting stufff, but nooooo, I have to sit in the office and be handed mobile connection after mobile connection... bastards.
Oo I just checked my emails- clare I'll try and come to yours this weekend, I was planning on going down to Woonoona again, but I have to come back on Sat so I'd only be spending one night, and it's a bitch to get to, so I'll probably be making my way to yours. (going down to... some place past Waterfall for a party on thursday... I'm a little scared! all southies.... hmmm...)
Also finally got around to watching Grave of the Fireflies... I cried so badly... I knew what was going to happen, I knew it was sad and yet it still hit me like a glass case of emotions! I can't believe how much it affected me, as most things don't usually do that to me.
Well that's my rant, and the first time since tuesday that i've had a chance to go on the internet! Huzzah.
Apologies for ranty boringness, but really you should have learnt by now that my post are generally poorly written and confussing (as they are written over an extended time, while pretending to work) and are, as a whole, rather dull and perhaps a little silly.... I want to be Minister of Silly Walks! Vote for me!

I haven't really updated because, well, there's nothing much I've done.
Tom's mum found a psp on the train, i'm pretty sure it's from japan... being in japanese. we did get it into english though. It had a game in it, japanese one, called Taiko Drum Master 2... and it's fucking awesome!
It has all these random songs, j-pop, classical etc... I was just saying it would be funny if cruel angel's thesis was on it... and it was!!! How fucking random is that!!! I wish I understood Japanese (well, I can understand "Gamu-setten" but... only because it's pretty much english) It's great, this hyper excited japanese voice yells enthusiastically at you... about... something... yep.
Yvonna's 21st was good fun, I was impressed at how many times she changed.
P.S. you should all buy Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines. It's been keeping me entertained the last two-three weeks. Ah... escaping reality. Hey, and it's only $20... how cheap I am.

My Aunt and Uncle from New Zealand were over last week from monday to wednesday. Apparently the two of them went threw two and a half bottles of gin while they were here.
Yes... I'm sorry about my dullness. I'm trying hard to think, but all I can come up with is "...", which is, of course, very exciting and interesting.
And now a limerick:
There once was a Turnip called Harold,
He was rather fond of bone marrow
It went in his bowel,
And came out all brown,
and that is the story of Harold.
Ah how creative I am.

Apparently tommorrow will be worse. today's temp for hornsby area: 0-14. Cool, huh? Supposedly the coldest day since 1986. how... uninteresting.
I feel sorry for all the school girls with their craptastic tights that don't actually do much except get holes and not stop the wind or cold.
Fuck it's only tuesday. how i wish it was up to friday again.
Does anyone else know/like the tv show Nighty Night? (BBC) I just saw the final of it last night. Fucking disturbing show. It's too hard to even explain it's twisted fucked-up-ness. (wow my english is just stunning at the moment isn't it)
You must all watch it. Even the bit were one character tried to pour cum into the main character to get her pregnant (using one of those things you use for basting turkeys) accidently spurting the sperm out into the hallway and onto the plate of food held by some hospital paitent in a wheelchair, followed by the first character grabbing that plate of food and shoving in main characters pussy.
A woman who claims her husband has died of cancer (while he is still alive), he makes a full recovery so she hides him away in the house while trying to persue her neighbours husband (the neighbour has MS and is in a wheelchair)...
What about old 40-50 yr old man, balding patch at front, longish curly blond hair running down beach in red speedo/g-string thing with bumbag (or fanny pack for anyone in america- fanny not meaning arse anywhere except america... let's just say only women have one... or men who've had a sex change)
ok. I shall shut up now.

Well you know what. i give up.

Yay I managed to make no sense at all. Good work on my half.
what can I say? I'm tired. very tired. Damn you crappy body!
July 1st, 2007 : Washington, DC (AP) --
Congress today announced that the office of President of the United States of America will be outsourced to India as of July 1, 2007. The move is being made in order to save the President's $500,000 yearly salary, and also a record $521 Billion in deficit expenditures and related overhead the
office has incurred during the last 5 years. "We believe this is a wise financial move. The cost savings are huge." stated Congressman Thomas Reynolds
(R-WA). "We cannot remain competitive on the world stage with the current level of cash outlay." Reynolds noted .
Mr. Bush was informed by e-mail this morning of his termination. Preparations for the job move have been underway for some time.
Gurvinder Singh of Indus Teleservices, Mumbai , India will assume the office of President as of July 1, 2007 . Mr. Singh was born in the United States while his Indian parents were vacationing at Niagara Falls, thus making him eligible for the position. He will receive a salary of $320 (USD) a month but with no health coverage or other benefits. It is believed that Mr. Singh will be able to handle his job responsibilities
without a support staff. Due to the time difference between the US and India , he will be working primarily at night, when few offices of the US Government will be open. "Working nights will allow me to keep my day job at the Dell Computer call center," stated Mr. Singh in an exclusive interview. "I am excited about this position. I always hoped I would be President."
A Congressional spokesperson noted that while Mr. Singh may not be fully aware of all the issues involved in the office of President, this should not be a problem as President Bush was not familiar with the issues either. Mr. Singh will rely upon a script tree that will enable him to respond effectively to most topics of concern. Using these canned responses, he can address common concerns without having to understand the underlying issue at all. "We know these scripting tools
work," stated the spokesperson. " President Bush has used them successfully for years."
Bush will receive health coverage, expenses, and salary until his final day of employment. Following a two week waiting period, he will be eligible for $140 a week unemployment for 13 weeks. Unfortunately he will not be eligible for Medicaid, as his unemployment benefits will exceed the allowed limit. Mr. Bush has been provided the outplacement services of Manpower,Inc. to help him write a resume and prepare for his upcoming job transition. According to Manpower, Mr. Bush may have difficulties in securing a new position due to limited practical or successful work experience. A Greeter position at Wal-Mart was suggested due to Bush's extensive experience shaking hands, as well as his special smile. "We are confident that he will find something he can do on his own" said his case worker.
