Pointless, odd, ramblings

November 22nd, 2008


There have been an awful lot of vampire centric tv shows. Buffy & Angel, Moonlight, Blood Ties possibly more (I’ll check it out later). So I originally decided not to watch True Blood, however I recently caved and started obtaining them through the magic of t’interwebs. Very glad I did. It’s by the guy who did Six Feet Under and if you’re a mediumly offended person it’s really not for you. Lots of sex, nudity, swearing and a little bit of violence. So if you like that sort of thing the show is for you. Well it’s not so much the liking as the fact that I really do appreciate having tv shows that aren’t aimed at the widest possible age range audience. (Wohoo yes go have a meeting so I don’t have to pretend I’m doing something.)

Also Bill the vampire is sexy. Apparently the show is quite faithful to the books although mixed reviews on one of my forum threads talking about the show so I again used the magic of t’interwebs to obtain copies which I can read on my fucking kick ass ebook reader. Which I love btw


Just not that keen on the cover. Might try and get a black one instead. It’s a browny colour. Of course I’d love a purple one but they don’t seem to do that. You’d think that’d be something that they’d have a lot of choice in but hey-ho – I’ll keep checking ebay. I’ve also decided to cancel my long standing Mills & Boon Historical Novel delivery. Might as well just download them as ebooks. Save so much space and probably money.

Xmas is rapidly approaching not doing too bad. Gone halfers with my mum for a bunch of prezzies and I just need to get my mum and my dad which of course are the most awkward.




Christ people talk bullshit sometimes. Completely making crap up as they go along. Hah irony!

Blah Blah Blah Bleurgh

I’ve only started work and already I’m bored bored bored. At least I’m on the phones so I don’t really have to look like I’m doing work.

Hah started that last Thursday and didn’t get finished. Although in all fairness I was off on Friday and Monday. Happy Birthday to meeeeee!

Hopefully I shall have got Wrath of the Lich King by the time this gets posted. Have to wait until 16.30 as they may need phone cover :( but I plan to be packed and ready to jump up come 4.30. should have gone this morning but it was raining and I couldn’t be bothered! Ahh hindsight and all that.

Of course there will be probably be one big ass download when I do get it.

Oh well tick tock time to pack up

The world breathes a sigh of a relief…..

as the US finally does the right thing.




Apparently I didn’t jinx it. Hurrah! So the question is now – is assassination a real possibility or will even the vile supremacists succumb to the rose tinted glasses that so many ‘mericans seem to wear when it comes to their President? i.e. that while in office they can do wrong? If not and the absolute worst happens at least Biden isn’t Palin. The cherry on the cake would be if McCain croaks during the next four years thus proving that a Palin presidency was a real possibility. Not that I want McCain to die I’d like to stress.


I wonder if American’s find it patronising that people who don’t live in their country have such deeply held opinions about who should lead it. Of course you could argue that America has such an impact on the world that we all have an invested interest in who’s in charge. I’m not even speaking about lie induced wars.

The ironic thing however is that the majority of Americans seem completely unaware of the world at large. Although perhaps that is the same of all countries but as someone who is somewhat aware of the rest of the world I don’t recognise it in my countrymen.

Certainly the public reaction to some newspapers would seem to suggest that this is the case. I’m fairly sure I’ve posted about this before but the screaming hysterics over the most unworthy stories is just ridiculous. Look at the whole Russel Brand/Johnathan Ross thing. Yes it was in poor taste and shouldn’t have been done but it hardly deserved a lynching.

It now also seems that they are completely incapable of printing an accurate story. One example was “sex education for 5 year olds” Which had nothing to do with sex education but more to do with biology. Then there was the “Richard Dawkin’s thinks Santa should be banned” when in fact he had said it would be interesting to see if childhood myths would be interesting to investigate to see if they have negative effect. He didn’t even say he would (investigate).

In other news people are being beaten, raped and murdered in their masses in the Congo but more importantly Jeremy Clarkson said something Jeremy Clarksonish.

I think what annoys me the most is that people go along with it all like good little sheep. Baahhhing in moral outrage. Why not go the whole hog and jump off the fucking cliff. Sheep also jump off cliffs btw. I’m not mixing up my animals. The whole lemmings thing is an urban myth.

I’ve just found out that Proposition 8 has passed in California (something to do with only allowing marriage between a man and a woman). So apparently we can only drag the US so far into the modern century.

People suck!

Although I guess that’s a well known fact.

What a lot of rambling that will never be read by anyone. Oh well.

One man one vote

It’s my party and I’ll not cry if I want to. I’ve got my sony ebook reader for my birthday – lookit. 

Sony Reader


 I’m so high tech and star trekky.

I’m hoping that I’ll be able to read it in work while I’m waiting for a call and al my tasks are done but who knows….. Still fucking cool. also means I can read my star trek books without fear of mockery from the great unwashed.

American election happening right now. Hope Bema wins. If only so that the complete insanity that is Sarah Palin is nowhere near the oval office. Not that I’m all that interested in US politics but she thinks shooting animals from a helicopter is a valid sport. America has had enough idiots in charge. It’s time for someone who at least appears to have half a brain

Of course now that I have stated my support for Obama, he will no doubt lose.

In other news I have bought my fast flying mount but I have decided that I want to get the epic mounts for other factions. So working on Ironforge at the minute. Don’t think I can get a gnome amount though because you can only be a gnome so Exodar after that!

I may take screenshots for your pleasure.
