Minecraft, the waiting….

Mood: Pretty good. Just had some Japanese curry, so I’m very satisfied.
Listening to: Minecraft music. I was playing on the GameFront server, but then I got kicked.. and now I’m waiting for the server to get un-whatever it is…
Nice music, though. I’ll give them that.
Anyway.. I decided to post a screen shot I took the other day, before the weekend, the very long weekend without being able to mingle on the server because apparently some tosser thinks s/he’s all that.. and a bag of crisps. You’re not, so just stop, please.
The screenshot is of what looked like a cruise ship on the horizon where my house is. No one believed me. And since no one visits my blog, except A LOT of spammy gits, I’ll still post it. So there.

Minecraft cruise ship on horizon…

So there you go.
One of these days I’ll make a boat and find out what that is. But I can only do that if the server starts working…
I’m not giving up, though. Not now when Mitch is back too. I just hope they’ll make him a regular.

If I find more interesting things in Minecraft I’ll try to take a screenshot and post it. No promises, though.. hehe

Be utterly excellent to each other.


Sunday morning…

Mood: Pretty OK. A little cold, but I’m working on it.
Listening to: Someone brought to my attention that The Rocky Horror Picture Show had an equal.. That Richard O’Brien made this movie a few years after Rocky Horror. I’m listening to/watching Shock Treatment. So far I’m not very impressed.

Brad and Janet are back… they are now married, but Janet feels Brad is a little boring or something. So they go home to their old home town, Denton, which has turned into a TV show. Or a series of different TV shows. Brad ends up in the looney bin and Janet gets seduced by fame and someone looking like Brad.
Janet has changed, by the way. I think Frank-n-Further really did her some good. She’s not very shy anymore. It’s too bad that Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick couldn’t re-do their characters.
The music is very 80’s. Not that that’s a bad thing. I like the 80’s. But I don’ t know. Maybe I’m comparing it to Rocky Horror too much. I feel that Rocky Horror has a better musical assortment.
Anyway… in this movie we have:
Jessica Harper as Janet Majors
Cliff De Young as Brad Majors/Farley Flavors
Richard O’Brien as Dr. Cosmo McKinley
Patricia Quinn as Dr. Nation McKinley
Charles Gray as Judge Oliver Wright (The “It’s just a jump to the left” guy)
Ruby Wax as Betty Hapschatt
Nell Campbell as Nurse Ansalong
Barry Humphries as Bert Schnick

I was surprised to see Barry Humphries in this movie. It’s always surprising to see Dame Edna in other things.
Well, this is disappointing. In the middle of the movie copyright laws struck and they had to remove a song. What a joke. *eye roll*

Yeah, so I was working yesterday. And there were too many babies around. At the entrance to the store we have loads of balloons to make it more inviting because we’ve got costumes and such on offer now. Anyway, there was this little kid, barely found his feet, he was that young, running back and forth smacking the balloons. And he popped one. It happens, so I wasn’t upset about it. He, however, found it hilarious. So he continued to run back and forth. And then he stumbled. As he was falling over I thought “This is going to suck.” And it did. He was screaming so loudly it made me happy I don’t have kids. Very happy indeed.
I was actually working early yesterday. I was quite shocked that I got the option when boss lady asked me if I could work. The only problems I had was getting home, but the store manager of the book store across the hall was working so I asked her when she got off work and she said at 3pm and I asked if I could hitch a ride. And I could. So I was home early yesterday and I was sitting in front of my computer, not knowing what to do with myself. I usually get of at 6pm and the rest of the night I make dinner, and watch YouTube.  (Shock Treatment is mental, by the way.)
Anyway, about 3 minutes to 3 one of the less desirable costumers came into the store. He always talks to me about stuff. This day was no different. He singled me out, so to speak. Honed in on me and attacked. He said that the accident with the two girls that was killed while riding their horse was tragic. And I said, “Yes, it is. Unfortunately, things like that happen.” And he got a little angry and said that such things shouldn’t happen. Well, yeah. But accidents happen. The guy who hit the girls didn’t maliciously do so. And my bet is that he’ll struggle with this for the rest of his life.
And then he went on about the helicopter guy crashing, having a power line wrapped around his rotor. And again I said, “Accidents happen.” This alone shows that even professionals can make mistakes.
If we’re going to dwell on these things that happen, we’re going to turn into loons. Of course, when you read it or watch it on the news you feel sorry for those involved. But to keep it with me? No, it shouldn’t be done.
AND! When I got home I discovered that the GameFront Minecraft server was down… AGAIN!!! Maybe they should have someone on the server all the time. I mean, Saturdays and Sundays and maybe even Fridays are big Minecraft days. To have it not working is… not good.
And finally I’ve gotten my ginger grater and Japanese foam skimmer. I ordered it aaages ago. Finally got the pick-up note thingie from the post office.
I’ve also ordered a belt buckle from Ebay, and nail decal decor.
I really shouldn’t have money. I buy so much stuff. But the nail decals I’ve been looking at for a long time. And since they were like $0.75 or something, not a whole lot, I decided I’d get it. And it’s already been payed for. Which is why I really like Paypal. And I really needed a belt buckle.
Went shopping on Thursday and got two pairs of pants. They were a little tighter than I’m used to, but when in Rome. They weren’t fantastically restrictive like the Slim-fit shit is. My legs don’t look good in slim-fit.
Had to wash one of the trousers because of it seeping color. I tried them on again when I got home and my fingers were grey. I hope I got off most of the access coloring.
Anyway, I’m gonna see if I can find an online streaming of “Sleepaway Camp”.

Be nice to each other.

Don’t get me started….

Mood: Pretty good. Stuffy nose, but otherwise spiffy.
Listening to: Pet Shop Boys – Always on my mind. And singing along.. I haven’t gotten to sing out loud in ages. They keep playing the same song over and over again on the radio, “Wrecking ball” by Miley Cyrus being one of them… and it’s catchy, even if it IS Miley Cyrus.

So, we might as well start with Miley, then. Miss. Hannah Montana. I get that she’s trying to shed the good girl image… and she’s doing a really great job at it. Trying a little too hard, in my opinion. Oh well, to each its own. She does have some catchy songs, though, and Wrecking Ball is one of them.
I just hope she calms down before she starts doing something really stupid… Weed is one thing.. don’t start with the harder stuff. It’s not worth it.

So, what else.
Everyone seems to be getting new cell phones now. And I really want a new one. I wanted the Sony Xperia Z, but I’ve found out that the Xperia Z1 has a much better camera. Otherwise it’s basically the same as Z. Mum said she’s help me out getting it when she’s able. Which is really sweet of her. Especially since she just got me a Michael Kors wallet. And now I sound like one of the spam entries I’ve spent several hours deleting. I had over 88,000 spam entries!!!! 88,000!!!!!
Give it a fucking rest, people!!! There is no chance in hell I’ll ever approve one of your fucking entries. You are just annoying and sad. So anyway. My mum sold her apartment. So I guess she’s looking for a new place now. Will be fun to see what she finds. I just hope she doesn’t move to Turkey.
She is, of course, and adult and can do whatever she wants, but it’ll make it so much harder to visit her. Yes, I am selfish.  But is it so wrong to want your mother in the same country as you? But I do understand if it helps with her pains.

So, GameFront opened their Minecraft server again. James took it upon himself to entertain us. So I decided to try out the server address I got ages and ages ago, and it worked. =D
So I’ve got a viking mud house somewhere on the server. Also met a lot of really cool people. They are really giving, these people. At least two of them gave me diamonds. Generous beyond belief! I’ve also been given food, sugar cane, loads of nether rack and a lily pad.
I am planning on taking down the dirt and use smooth stone instead. OH, and someone gave me Nether Quartz, so I’ll make a fireplace. OurYoungHero has been the most giving, I must say. He helped a lot. Please forgive my forgetfulness, but I will try to mention all those who have helped me. But right now I can’t remember a thing.
But yeah, I need coal, and I’m too chicken shit to out there and find it. There are monsters everywhere! I need a bodyguard.

And Norway finally got the snow that was ordered for Christmas. I say we celebrate it over again, just to have something nice to look at outside the window. Is it mother’s day, today? Nope, second Sunday in February.
I had this whole thing planned to write about, but now I can’t remember a thing. I think this stuffy nose is stuffing up my brain.
I do know that I’m going to watch “Forbidden Planet” later, and I’m pretty excited about it. I love that movie. And speaking of movies. I want to watch “No Country for Old Men” again and write a Lene Review of it. I don’t think I did the first time I watched it. It’s a pretty good movie.
I should rewrite a “100 movies to watch before you die” list and post it. I know I’ve written one in the past, but I don’t think I posted it. If I did I’ll do an updated version.
I think I’m going to make some tea, maybe this nose will be un-stuffed.

Be good to each other.
