I have spent most of my evening mucking about on the Serenity websitewhich is very shiny! Especially the flash bit, make sure you have your sound turned on!!

The only problem with this is that I had my headphones in to listen to the site; and then went and played nanaca crash which I recommended to everybody a couple of days ago and I haven’t stopped playing yet (8250.14m current high). So guys I’m really sorry I recommended a site with such godawful music!! I had no idea; but its abysmal.

Thankfully I still have the Serenity theme music stuck in my head so I managed to blank it out 🙂 And I now have Serenity wallpaper. I’m getting all geeky in my old age 😀

Today I have been letting Stumble find me more fun games as I am not doing so well with the Mah Jong. The best I have found so far are dodge the dot, does what is says on the tin really, and nanaca crash strange anime game, along the same line as the yeti smacking penguin thing, but wierder 😀 I have been making anyone I can find on messenger play it, my high score so far is 2237.88m.

There is also poom which I am bloody useless at.

The pest control guy has just left. They weren’t mice. yuck. But at least that explains why the mouse poison didn’t kill them, I suppose. He has also investigated the rats in the back close and in front of the house. I have no idea what he did about them or whatever, but he definately investigated; I like that man. 🙂 And now I don’t feel like such a wuss for being terrified!

Today is on of those days where I am really glad the dr gave me sedatives 🙂

And I found this on stumble, its cool yellowtail

bitefight

bitefight. Werewolves and vampires. you know you wanna. I made a character called Mary, but then I’m unimaginative that way!!

Edit: note to self; don’t volunteer to work in game for 2 hours, cos it seems they expect 2hours worth outta u. bugger.

painting walls, writing letters

February 9, 2006 Leave a comment

I have had an interesting day today, we have been creating signs to jolly the walls up a bit, which is cool especially when there are resident artists!!!

I found out that one of the coordination staff is leaving next week and her job is going to be seconded rather than advertised for at least the next 3 months. And basically I have been pressurised into applying for it by just about everybody apart from the actual playworker staff who just saw it as another reason to moan; but who cares, they’re going to moan anyway right?! So the lassie that’s leaving came up to my work to go through exactly everything I need to know in order to definately get the interview and hopefully the job; mainly on the basis that she is also called Jo 😀 The problem is that now I have to write an official letter of intent to the Play Manager and it has to be in for Monday; the interview would probably be next week and the job would start the week after. See, the council can be organised when they feel like it.

So instead of doing anything useful like starting the letter or practising more driving theory I am mucking about on LJ :S So far I have found these beauties thanks to Fortean_news

stumble

I love having stumble, it takes you to things like evil clowns and scary beards and bacon and eggs and imagination and other cool stuff

It’s much more fun than doing anything you know useful….like sleeping 😀
