Why can't I go to sleep? I don't have any reason why I shouldn't. Not really.
2005 has been a strange year. It started out badly wity the Tsunami in South-East Asia, then bad things came closer to home with so many awful things happening to family and friends.
For those that don't know, I was told there was a 75% chance that I had cancer. So of course, I started to tie my loose ends together and think about selling up and stuff... and lo and behold. I recieve all the luck in the world and it turns out it's not cancer! I still have the same symptoms, but it's not the big C. All of my lucky numbers came in that day.
So, the Gods in a fit of pique, decide to put my dad's job in jeopardy (he works at LDV in Birmingham). Well it turns out that LDV has been bought out, but the pensions are still in danger. That's 25 years worth of pension for my dad who's a hairs breath short of 60. Finding another job chance? Neh
So that was a few days ago.
Then today, my dad's uncle dies. What? Did my family tread on some cosmic ant so we're all reaping our rewards triple big time? Or is it just fricking happenstance.
Or some joke
Sometimes, belief in something greater than us all is so very hard.
I played DAoC with maviscruet
and a few others on Thursday night. Fab time. Never played in such a game before. Completely different to CoH/CoV. Mistakes are punished much more severely. Especially if you're not used to the completely laggy controls. It's SO crude in comparison to *ahem* newer games. But it was a lot of fun. Buff buff buff buff *Mave keep still, I losing track of my buffs* buff buff disease dead.
I owe Mave an apology.... for some n00b error I made during the game. Only his character would have felt the error.
Invited a load of people over on Monday to watch Serenity. *I am a leaf on the wind* Should be good....
