simulcast from Marathon Men:
"T-Minus 12.5 hours until Lord of the Rings Special Edition Marathon Begins. Aw fucken' yeah. that' going to be 11.5 hours of Peter-Jackson-y goodness. And it'll be the best kind of Peter Jackson-y goodness. The kind where we don't see Peter-Jackson."

Yes! Tis true! Der Marathon begins tomorrow morning! Fear us! Fear for us!

Captian Carrot
You scored 84 intelligence, 67 morality, and 75 physical strengenth!
You are an intriguing character. Good hearted, incredibly strong, and a headful of information that makes that Jeopardy guy look like a bar trivia hack. No one knows what to make of a six-foot tall dwarf who dates a werewolf, and may be the true heir to the throne of Ankh-Morpork. But you can make everyone get along, and are a born leader.

My test tracked 3 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:
You scored higher than 12% on intelligence
You scored higher than 91% on morality
You scored higher than 83% on strength

Not my first choice... I figured I'd be more Vimes-y. But I can deal.

Guess what?

Tanja's pished on wheat beer! It's funny! She's watching Frasier and laughing at the... less intellectual jokes. Like "good-cop-horny-cop".

I put on Monty Python's And Now For Something Completely Different last night, despite Tanja's boredom at The Holy Grail. She laughed uproariously at the little old lady getting blasted out of her socks in the opening. My intellectual girl, ladies and gentlemen. Of course, this is the same woman who bought chocolate chip hot cross buns yesterday. They're an atrocity! A yummy atrocity, but still!

Rented Red Faction II for PS2. I'm a bit meh... graphics good, but the weapons are either too good (grenade laucher makes you damn near unkillable) or useless for various reasons (the machine guns can't hit shit, even when you're right in front of the guy, and the big weapons like the railgun fire beams so narrow that you have to be dead-on-balls-accurate to hit anything). Also, no manual aim OR auto-aim! There's a crosshairs at the centre of the screen which moves with your guy. It's frustrating. Oh well, back to TimeSplitters 2 for me!

Someone send a memo to the people of Australia: YOU CANNOT BE ELECTROCUTED BY BEING ON THE PHONE IN A THUNDERSTORM! It's an urban legend! I had never heard of this until I got here, but everyone in Oz is paranoid that if they have anything electrical running when it's raining, they could die. How stupid is that?

On a sadder note, Daddo from work has decided to give up the telemarketing game for his return to Uni. I'll miss his punk ass, but also, I'm jealous. Want better job!

I'm downloading whole albums of Radiohead, Led Zeppelin, and the Rolling Stones! Fear my musical wrath!

Must go buy broccoli. Oh, and some thing came in the mail that says that I'm a permanent resident. Or whatever.

OH, and Shaun of the Dead is coming out on DVD the 24th of March. Aboot fuckin' time!
