Turning Japanese [27 Jul 2005|07:52pm]

I'm going to Tokyo on the 21st of August with two of my best friends. You can't imagine how excited I am! Thee Michelle Gun Elephant who?

We'll also be visiting Sydney, Christchurch, Fiji & New York. Any recommendations or suggestions for places to visit or things to do would be greatly appreciated.

Another Travelin' Song [01 Apr 2005|10:34pm]

I couldn't wait forever, I wanted an iPod that could playback video and receive digital radio broadcasts. It's not like I'm asking for Teleportation (Although I swear we were supposed to have Teleportation by now, they promised it on Tomorrow's World!).

So I've had to make do with one of these. I don't know why I'm feeling so glum, I guess I want to be able to Teleport from my Bed to the Fridge and then back again with little to no effort...I think perhaps I shall be quiet now?

Agenda Suicide [09 Dec 2004|06:33pm]

Earlier this morning at Work, I was placed on the Shop Floor and momentarily was left as the only Member of Staff on that Level. It was fairly quiet in general with a few Customers browsing. Quite unexpectedly however -- and I'm not entirely sure why I've decided to embarrass myself by publicly admitting -- I Broke Wind quite loudly. I'm sure it echoed throughout the Store. Imagine my humiliation as I heard some of the Customers giggling quietly to themselves. Oh dear!

My Fingers sting from the multiple Paper-cuts I've endured. If you ever decide to work at a Bookshop, ensure that you have an adequate supply of Plasters.

Always [03 Dec 2004|07:26pm]
I spent Wednesday afternoon traipsing around London on my lonesome. The City at this time of year is quite spectacularly beautiful. You should visit if you haven't already.

Am I Wry? No [02 Dec 2004|08:18pm]

A lady my Mum used to know passed away earlier this week, she recounted to me what had happened. The lady had been out shopping for the day and was waiting at the Bus Terminal to return home, quite unexpectedly however she felt the effects of asphyxiation, in distress she asked a nearby stranger if she could make use of their phone to call her Daughter.

Her Daughter promptly arrived and insisted she take her Mother directly to the hospital. On her journey to the Hospital her mum explained to her that she had difficulty breathing . A little later on asking if she was feeling any better, the daughter received no response. She pulled over to come to the realisation that her Mother had passed away in those few minutes of silence...

Although I don't know the lady in question, the story seemed to hit a nerve. I think perhaps the idea of something so seemingly routine as going Shopping could lead to such ends, brought home the realisation of my own mortality and those of the people I love and care about.

It prompted me to think about Life and Death and inevitably questions of theology. My belief in God is questionable to say the least. I guess for some -- Religion provides a comfort and a meaning to their Lives. However my suspicion towards religion in general means that I find Death terrifying. The thought that there is nothing else...petrifies me. Without faith in empyrean I find no comfort in looking at my own Death. My eventual demise on this Mortal Coil is something that I can't change. There's not anything that anybody can do.


Strangely enough I've found comfort in the most unlikely of places. The Laws of Thermodynamics tell us that “Energy can be converted from one form to another, but it cannot be created or destroyed.” So if we're all just Strings of Energy maybe even when we do die, we won't disappear, we'll just become part of something else, I'd like to think someday I'll become part of the Sky.

You Stole The Sun From My Heart [29 Nov 2004|09:57am]

It's pathetic, a year and a half on and I still find myself thinking about you every single moment of the day. Infused into every thought process, rigid in it's concentration.

She had a profound affect on all facets of my existence. Although all ties between us have been severed -- in an proactive effort to move on -- I still find myself lusting after her. I don't know where I'm headed anymore. What is wrong me with me? I'm pining after a short-temperamental-hooligan of a young lady from Sheffield!

Who Is It? [25 Nov 2004|11:45pm]

LiveJournal is such a pain to Customise. Especially if you happen to be as technically insufficient as I am. However I'm too much of a Scrooge to purchase an Upgrade on my Account. Could I be any more dull?

The Blowers Daughter [17 Nov 2004|12:01am]
Whilst traversing the Internet, I came across this Profile. Is this a sign of things to come? I do hope not. I'm sorry for being so short-tempered lately.

Look at what else I've found. Maybe there's more of us? We could form our own State? Now that would be bodacious!

New Born [07 Nov 2004|01:53pm]
On Friday I walked to Stratford, it's quite depressing to think that I've resorted to such lengths for 'entertainment' -- my life is horribly dull. In any case, Stratford isn't reknowned for it's bevvy of Beauties, but I noticed a very attractive and very misplaced young lady. My self-confidence has extinguished, so I was in no-way ready to introduce myself. However I had noted that I'd seen her in a number of places throughout the Afternoon.

At one point, I could have sworn that she was chasing me, literally. In fact, it seemed to me, that she was trying to gain my attention. This couldn't be for real could it? As I stopped in my tracks to turn around, she handed over my Glasses (that I had apparently dropped), "You dropped your glasses earlier, here you go." I said "Thanks", stood there awkwardly for a minute, she then turned around, walked into the crowd and faded away. Why didn't I say anything? Why didn't I say anything?

The Ghost Of You [26 Oct 2004|11:48pm]
So Kurt and Brian are dead? What is going on? They were my favourites even though they were patently based on the relationship between brighteyes1983 and Francis (who doesn't have a LiveJournal to link).

Eon Blue Apocalypse [11 Oct 2004|02:33pm]
So it was my Birthday yesterday, I'd been dreading the anticipation for so long that when it finally did arrive, it wasn't so bad. So now I'm 21, it's difficult to get my head around the idea. I still feel like I'm 16.

You have to hand it to my Dad -- he truly has no grasp of taste or common-sense -- which I love him dearly for. The above would be the obvious choice, would it not for your Son's 21st Birthday. I know I'd pick the very same. My Dad is cool like that.
