My London Adventures

so my brother has been in need of a new boiler, he'd hunted around for one and a decent plumber to install it, he found a decent priced one but was in need of someone to be in his flat while. As I was free I volunteered my services so my brother came and picked me up sunday so I would be there for monday.
As I got to London we then found out the plumber hadn't confirmed the appointment or got his deposit, so that was then re-arranged for thursday. In the meantime monday was my birthday, so I wanted to make the most of it. So in the day I went to the science museum. Such an impressive place considering its free, there's actually so much information there I found myself actually skipping past and ignoring some of the exhibits. Best bits were the space and rocketry area, the big hall of machines and whatnot, mika hakkinens formula 1 car, the glowy ring thing, the plastics exhibition and the flight area. What was also cool was they announced that from 2:30 to 3:30 the Wallace and Gromit exhibition would be free, so as I was there I went along. It was quite cool as it had various sets and stuff from the films and odd things you can do, although its more aimed at kids heh. Mind you it would of cost £9 to go there and I'm glad I didn't pay that heh, cause it was not worth that much given how little there was in the end, but definately nice for free lol. After that I met up with my brother and we went to Canary Wharf to watch District 9, its a really good and interesting film. I liked the fact it wasn't an American alien film heh and a very different look on that type of film. It was a tad gorey at times but I liked it, worth seeing if you like sci-fi and drama lol. After that we met up with the sister-in-law and had a very fancy chinese meal in a quite posh isle of dogs chinese restaurant, the fried chicken was gorgeous :D
So Tuesday, I'd decided it was easier to stay on than come home just to come back a day later, but the snag with that was I only packed for 3 days heh, so I went off to Camden town (much to my dislike after recent events but I knew it was a decent place to shop heh) managed to get some swimming things and other bits and bobs before going to the market to get 2 novalty t-shirts I'd been after and a cool chinese style dragon thing heh, spent the rest of the time just looking around before going back to Trafalagar square to see the 4th plinth again, before walking to the southbank just to look around. In the end I stayed to watch some of the street performers, some bendy africans and an argentinian football juggler, who turns out to be mildly famous for it too heh.
Wednesday because my brothers flat had no hot water I went swimming to keep up with my weekly routine and to use the hot showers there heh. So I spent the day in Greenwich, walking and looking around before going off swimming and doing my usual mile

Joke corner

so last night I was thinking I should actually start writing down some of the jokes I come up with, because well I am a reasonably funny guy :o who knows I might even do stand up? (haha me doing stand up is funny in itself)
So here is my space for hilarity:

Jesus touched me, I sued, he settled out of court for an undisclosed sum

A man goes upto a woman in a bar and says "hey baby, you and me baby ain't nothing but mammels so lets do it like they do on the discovery channel"
The woman looked at him for a minute and replied "sure thing!"
They then preceeded to a park where they took down and killed a Gazell by hand and consumed the raw flesh of it

So in this time of economic hardship I know what you're thinking, will the price of tomato ketchup affect my daily life? well the simple answer is no. Its the mustard eaters that have to worry, not because of the prices, its the Collmans bull, he's out to get you! You may wonder why but if you were a bull and you lived soley on mustard, a food product that you must admit does not appear naturally in the bulls food chain you'd be pretty pissed off too

Annoyances 3

Well i'm in one of those moods I think I shall rant some more, mostly about tv adverts heh

firstly, the ICS advert. The woman in that advert seems a complete and utter bitch, granted we don't know the relationship between her and her friend john but surely she is quite able to see he is in conversation with a pretty young lady, so why would he then buy you a drink and also given you just got this new promotion why the fuck ain't you buying your own drinks or even buying for him to celebrate. Raaa its trivial I know but yes she annoys me
Secondly the Kellogs big bake advert, this is a bit harsh of my but given how much that advert is on tv that kids accent is really starting to annoy me heh

Sunday, 26 October 2008

So I am sat here annoyed grumpy unhappy and just generally blah, playing tetris at crazy speeds and swearing quite 18+ everytime either I fuck up or the tetris gods are against me for giving me the wrong pieces. I have no idea if I'll ever be able to beat this score on Inga's list heh, but it has to be doable. But tetris is a strange game, I started off quite poorly, but over time I have found myself to improved vastly, but the odd thing is I'm doing all this with little effort, I'm at a point where I am just sat here playing, dropping a tetris piece every second moving at crazy speeds and still managing to get tetrises but whilst all that is going on I am sat here thinking about all sorts of crazy stuff like:
I wish I had a god, but a god with batteries included, not one that requires you to interpret the messages given to you by strange people, an actual pro-active god that has signs and miracles and flashy stage tricks heh, but of course under the same logic I would also love a pegasus
Those extra adverts that sponsor hollyoaks, they suck, they've sucked alot, all incarnations of them suck, I hate them so simply because they suck
Talking of people who sucks, Cheryl Cole, she sucks, I just can't take her seriously as a judge, I mean she's hardly a musical powerhouse complete with experience that actually ranks you up there, also Simon Cowell can be a bit of a tit when he defends his singers, he knew they were shite but he won't say it to their faces on tv heh
American football, that sucks too. I find all american sports coverage crazy, so facinated with stats and figures, granted for some of the games thats all you have to go on but they take it to a crazy extreme, I know with football they have stats but generally they are team based and we dont quote them religiously like the americans do, and I also find it hilarious how they managed to sell nearly every inch of advertising available. Also singing the national anthem before every game, sucks!
meh, I might rant more later, not even saying half the things on my mind
