|A Sigh Worth Keeping|
Very Conscious it has been a week or so since I have posted on here and I am very very sorry! It's been on and off with the Internet in the house, mostly off which has made looking for a new job difficult and so i've been exploring things other than the Internet.
For a gamer this is a weird thing! I love games! They are so much better than real life! Real life for me has a mostly shit plot, a piss poor character, though the graphics are amazing and in 3D too... I could in fact be playing a Gene experiment with super human reflexes armed to the teeth to take on my psychic brother and his army of clones whilst being both hunted and haunted by the vengeful spirit of my mother who incidentally is an 8 year old girl who generally likes to burn shit and appear at rather oddly at times where you don't expect her and it makes you jump... unless you've actually played through F.E.A.R more than once in which case you just marvel at how well it was all put together and thank the lord you are not playing Amnesia the Dark Descent because Lee, Miro and I couldn't play that shit even with the lights on!!!!!
I could be a piss poor Scouser, not overweight but would like to tone up though I have the conviction of a wet paper towel, the action really gets exciting when I turn up for work at the store and have to complete a series of remedial, boring, repetitive tasks which in all honestly could be carried out by a trained monkey... though the graphics are lush and you do have to content with hunger and sleep. You only get one life too? what's that all about! It makes you rather cautious... well... with me that's debatable! Though to be fair the main character does have this smoking hot girlfriend...!
I choose real life! Plainly because It has more than 6 levels, I mean its been 25 so far! I've still some pretty tough objectives to complete and like Amnesia, the fact there are no weapons to hand means the game gets a shit lot more intense when things go horribly wrong!
STREET JUSTICE!! Yesterday I was walking to the store for mother dear to get her cigarettes, get father the newspapers and get Sister some Ketchup and there was a gang of maybe 5-6 ruffians! Those rabscallians who wear BLACK north face coats (not pink, pink means your not in a gang) and they ride around on their bikes and had a look at a car they were going to break into until the owner shouted over and they started mouthing off.. I digress, in a pretty shitty mood because it was super hot and I had no cash and the wonderful EVE was in work in another city I walked towards the store where the dick-bags had left their bikes lay on the floor blocking the entrance to stop all the trolleys from leaving the store... so I just trampled some dick-bags bike! Just walk my ass right over the wheel there for you son :P So he says "Ey... watch me' bike!" and I just carry on walking right past said dick bag...
What you wanna do huh? i'm standing right here brah!!!!
So yeah... pulling one back for the normal people there from the dick face wankers that act super tough because they wear black and travel in large packs... Gangs! I had a 14 year old gang member pull a gun on me once, I just kept on walking... my food was going to be cold and honestly didn't really care. I've had numerous... literally... numerous death threats in work! Double figures brah!
Then there was a few times where people have threatened to beat me up... All because I asked for ID for Alcohol and Cigarettes! I'm still standing Brah! Come at me brah!
WHEN I WAS LIKE 15 TO ERRR STILL... I WORE A LOT OF BLACK! MAYBE UNTIL I WAS 22-23 I WORE NOTHING BUT BLACK AND THESE TOSSERS WOULD SHOUT GOTH! (10 out of 10 for observation).... When did it become Socially Acceptable to wear nothing but black? they stole it from us! Bastards!
Actually... looking at Randy Marsh from the epic south park...

YOU'VE SEEN IT! YOU CAN'T UN-SEE IT!!!!!
Things with Eve are going great! I wrote her a letter of some 20 odd pages which really hurt having not written anything by hand since eeerrrmmm... School some 10 years ago! haha So I wrote her a letter and didn't tell her which I thought was clever as usually I cannot for the life of me keep any of my plans secret at all!
I also drew her a sheep in work and sent her a picture of it... because I've an A Level in Fire Art don't you know!
I'm also assuming since the picture in on Facebook and nobody actually knows who Eve is apart from me :P that she wouldn't mind me posting a picture of us!
That's taken at John Lennon Airport where we waited and got bored and took many photographs! Before anyone mentions the quality, I jumped on the Instragram bandwagon... Leave me alone! Why don't phones shoot in .RAW format? that shit would be awesome! Incidentally, the camera on my phone has a faster processor than the Canon 1D! Its burst shooting capacity is unreal! It may not be as good in low light because you're not fitting a 35mm sensor into a phone for fucks sake! Stop being nerdy,,, point being I was very very impressed with the speed and quality of the shots! It makes my old pro camera of 7 years ago look like crap! Seriously... gutted!
So that there is the lovely Eve! Makes me miss her now. I'm going to see her tomorrow until Saturday anyhow so it's all good! I also cooked for her the other day after she made me many a delicious meal I cooked some Garlic & Herb chicken thing? it was chicken haha with dauphinoise potato which is always a class act and broccoli! MMM!!! Though apparently this was cheating as It wasn't all made from Scratch! RUDE! I got 98% in my Cookery GCSE! Thats the American High School diploma equivalent... and all that was from Scratch!
I can knock fifteen kinds of shit out of a duck and king prawn filo parcel with 5 spice and seasonal oriental vegetables! I smashed that like a pro! It took my virginity! That's how good it was!
GUESS WHAT I WON IN WORK FROM COCA-COLA AND THE MANAGEMENT TEAM?
Our store won them and then the management said from all the people who wanted to go that it would be based on performance, who deserved it... they chose me!!!! Me! Apparently I go the extra mile? I swear non stop, say very inappropriate things, I play on my phone, I read books when I am meant to be serving customers and occasionally I will even say odd things really loudly over the store tannoy system to amuse the rest of the staff! I even put funny names on the refunds like Hugh Jass and Mrs Tess Tickle!! Though apparently and I quote the store manager...
"The management team felt you deserved it as they feel things get done when you are around, they don't have to run around every 2 minutes checking everything is ok, they know if you're there then it's going to get done!"
Which I think is a "Good Job Steven?" which means I get to tick that shit off the fuck-it list!!!! HURRAAAAAAYYY!! I couldn't afford to go, the tickets I won are worth £300! Then I had free travel for two from Euston station to and from the games themselves for tomorrow! However the train to get there was £240 each... and nobody could go so... the manager is going now :P though I may be able to craftily use this as a "remember when I gave you those £300 tickets for the Olympics? can I have a day off please?" WINRAR!!! Mark is a good guy!
Also really want another "Midnight Takeaway 2 - King Kebab!" its Donner meat, lamb, chicken, fries and salad... for 3 people... in one KEBAB! Naan or Pitta... that is the question... point being I know I cant afford it but for my birthday in about 8 weeks.... i'm getting one of these bad boys!!! OWWWW!!!! Check ma bad self!
Before I go... Look what the amazing EVE bought for me!
Anyhow.... must dash.. a tonne of shit to do!
