Loosely structured school essays are terrible. Well, all school essays are terrible, but loosely structured ones are especially terrible.

So I'm all on g+, checking if anything happened, when I see the new indieroyale post thing.

I'm a HUGE fan of indie royale, but it often gets a lot of flak, for not being the humble bundle, so I decide to check the comments and see what people are bitching about now.

What the hell is wraith doing in my g+?

We aren't friends there or anything. Nope, he just appeared.

(And I saw the name first [blanked because I'm not a dick] and was all "isn't that *looks at picture* HOLY FUCK IT'S WRAITH!")

Edit, also, the LRR reference (somewhat). Most assuredly Wraith.

Whenever there's a debate brewing over appropriate terminology, Wraith will be there. It's what he does, and he does it well.

given the end-result of that t-shirt fiasco I would say the results somewhat negated one-another.

No compelling reason to use G+ regularly. Everyone on there I 'see' more often on the forums, and most of the stuff posted I'm not interested in.

I've been on FB a bit more (like once a week) and using tumblr a little. Twitter is nigh-omnipresent.

Yea, it's me. You have Indie Royal on your Feed, and I'm in an argument attached to a post they made about how stupid it is that no one cane say "Windows" instead of "PC."

I recieved the weirdest gifts today:
1. A cardboard pallet-full of localized (Read: University Endorsed) energy drinks.
2. A Jägermeister work shirt.

On the plus side, I can now pass for an average bartender in most social situations...

The weather here's been crazy the past few days.

Thankfully, it didn't get that bad, though it did cut the railway line the next village over.

I have heard from numerous sources "wow its so sad that Jim Henson/walt Disney died so young, look at what they did with their technology imagine what they could do with today's technology.

Now I love to speculate just as much as anyone else but I have also been a Star Wars fan since roughly birth. One of my first memories was sitting in the car in the winter while visiting my grandparents waiting outside the multiplex (ok now im crying see below)to see Return of the Jedi when I was 3 years old. Now look at what George Lucas has done with modern technology, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQDpL_JNQ5A

It could be just as well that they gave their creativity and then left this world.


(side note: I was in SE Michigan one time in the past two years, it was for my grandfathers funeral, I was unable to get out of Alaska fast enough to say goodbye. While we were there, they tore down the theater I mentioned. it was slated for awhile but we were driving down the road one day and I saw the front of the building torn off, the next day it had only two walls up the third day it was a pile of rubble. That makes me very sad)

So I'm not sure if anyone noticed but neither myself or Dackwards have been around for a while. This is because I had to go to some beach town for Uni and took Dackwards with me.

So basicly it was an intensive school for GEOL202 Introductory Palaeontology. Not as exciting as it sounds sadly enough. Mostly just invertebrate fossils and pretend dino tracks.

Highlights: Patted a Wobbygong Shark (live and wild), saw some cool sea creatures, learnt how to calculate dino speed from tracks, got heaps of new books, got caught in a crazy storm and saw Dackwards stack it. Plus more.

So anyway I'm home now. Did you miss me?

I was actually wondering where you'd been off to yesterday. But people come and go, and we all have things come up to keep us busy on occasion.

I didn't "stack it," it was merely an impromptu repositioning to a state of increased horizontality... that involved my head hitting the ground before the rest of me, my shoe flying a metre away and my arse gouging a new road into the mud. Completely intentional.
