It’s been an interesting week in TV. Today Tonight brought us the shocking revelation that gambling causes you to lose money, Kevin Rudd got angry at Kerry O’Brien for asking him questions on The 7:30 Report, and Masterchef came second in the ratings for the first time since dinosaurs roamed the earth.
My favourite TV show of the week would have been Doctor Who. I love that show so much. I even managed to reluctantly drag myself away from my homework to rewatch the episode Blink. Unfortunately, some of my friends don’t feel the same way about TV as I do. They don’t like Masterchef or Doctor Who, and instead watch silly shows like Gossip Girl. Shocking, I know. All my favourite shows get clumped together on Sunday night, which is nice. Masterchef, Doctor Who, Bones, House MD. Pity my homework doesn’t get organised like that. Never mind.
This post is rapidly speeding away from me in what appears to be a rocket powered vehicle, so I think I should stop writing. I would like to try and write another post tomorrow. We’ll see how I go. You get zero apologies if I don’t post, however. I’m nice like that :).

Just a quick post to say happy birthday to me! I get my presents tonight, because I have exams today, so I will post what I got tomorrow.

I have a few complaints to make.

One of them is the unbelievable stupidity of the show Psychic Kids. It is so dumb! They get a few kids who believe that they can see ghosts, and then reinforce this belief by ‘training’ them. This is the dumbest thing I have ever head! It is like telling a kid who, like most of us at that age, that fairies are real, and then keeping that belief going by providing ‘proof’ of their existence! UCK!

Another thing is Joe Biden’s comments on the state of world energy:

โ€œWe have enough coal to meet our needs domestically for the better part of the next 100 200 years,โ€ Biden said. โ€œThat can free us from being dependent on foreign oil countries and at the same time not ruin the environment.โ€

Huh!?!? Is there something I’m missing here? Coal? Not ruin environment? That is soooo wrong!

He even states the other problems himself – “We have enough coal to meet our needs domestically for the better part of the next 100 200 years”. Only 100-200 years? Silly, silly, silly…

My rant is now finished.

Ooh, The Any Key now has its first comic up! Check it out!

Party!

At the moment I am sitting watching people play games at AtlanticSlamon’s party.

Well, not any more. When I started writing this post I was, but that was over three weeks ago. I haven’t blogged for quite a while. I got all motivated before, and then I forgot again. Not good form…

Anyway, Slammer’s party was good. Lots of video games to play.

The other day I went to Gizmolio’s 3/4 Birthday Party, which was equally as nerdy, but with a larger focus on computer games and LAN gaming.

That was just my little post to keep the blog going. I have some more ideas for posts, so hopefully I remember to write them soon ๐Ÿ™‚

I recently made a post on setting up my old LEGEND laptop (which, I will reiterate, is CRAP) with Linux and using it to practice PHP, etc. I am now installing Ubuntu Server on it, so I hope that it works. I spent hours last night trying to find out how to change the BIOS settings to boot from CD before the hard drive, and finaly worked out that I was just pressing the wrong button. Oh dear – the computer just spat about 10 error messages at me telling my that some files are corrupted. I guess I will have to re-burn the disk… I will update this as soon as I can.

This is a story reported by The Age’s Odd Spot:

Wednesday September 10, 2008

Police in California arrested a man for breaking into two farm-workers’ home and stealing money before rubbing one man with spices and hitting the other with a sausage. The man was later found in a field in a T-shirt, boxer shorts and socks. The money was recovered but a dog had eaten the sausage.

Unbelievable…

YES! It is finally the holidays! This is very good coz there is no school, but bad because Starla is leaving our school, and, come to think of it, the country, to go back to the US. At least she can’t poke me from there. She had a strange habit of doing that… so do Smiley, Gryphic, JAL, Pyro, and anyone else i have missed…
