Everything the pope says is copyright


Not a bad weekend, I got a new phone and joined the 3G network, just for shits and giggles (and because their deals were pretty decent). I finished work on a 3D project I've been at for the last week (read: pulling my hair out and screaming at the computer asking why it decides that Bryce is reporting the world's worst error message on startup). I played a load of World of Warcraft but unfortunately it involved joining a raid group (a raid group is a gang of about 60 people attempting to take out a dragon or demigod of some description) and everyone getting killed about a dozen times while the "leader" of the group swore at everyone and blamed the healers, the mage contingent and the warriors at different points. He then went on to threaten people who left with some kind of decrease in their chances of getting loot (which might have been a worthy threat had there of been any loot worth mentioning). I re-read the entire series of Hellboy and Transmetropolitan too. That was fun.
Then I coughed all night and woke up late.

Man, it doesn't take long for guitar callouses to vanish. Twenty minutes practice and I'm left typing one handed - if you know what I mean.

2006 can kiss my ass

Poor old Prince, the Dalmatian back home, is on his last legs at the moment. He has something so catastrophically wrong with his stomach that the vet compared it to a sieve and she reckons he only has a few weeks left. Mum is putting off the inevitable partly because he's still relatively strong and she wants to wait until the point between poor health and actual misery before putting him down and partly so as we can get to go home and say goodbye to the lug. My poor brother is in bits over the whole thing, he's always had a soft spot for Prince, and as anyone who knows my brother will know - he's not one for showing his soft side so much as his manly, stubbly side.

I'm going to the doc about this asthma thing tomorrow too, I always prided myself in not falling into the typical nerd traps beyond the glasses but here I am, asthmatic and bespectacled.
