Happy New Year 2008!

I've created a new Desktop Wallpaper for the new year. It's got two of my favorite Gals on it, Reandra and Alyssa from Fatal Busters, along with a funky Superbike in the corner, topped off with a cool Tokyo nightscape in the background (Can't do better that!).

Happy New Year everyone!

Surviving Christmas

Hey ya'll! Managed to survive Christmas?

My plan to survive the X-mas madness has pretty much worked, allowing me to switch off from all the stress that people subject themselves to. Although maybe I switched off a little too much? Christmas day itself was pretty much reduced to watching repeats of "Hogan Knows Best" (Hulk Hogan's family rules!)on MTV one for most of the day, and later on tuning in to see the usual lame story climaxes on Eastenders and Coronation Street (As I thought it would be, they were both tired and predictable). Hell, at least I didn't have to put up with annoying relatives always butting in and telling me what to do and how I should live my life.

I did have the intention to complete a few projects with my time off (as I usually do), but as usual the best laid plans of mice and men always seem to fall by the wayside due to the shear enjoyment of doing nothing. Ah well... ^_^

Other than some minor computer problems (might have to reboot, AGAIN), and trouble trying to put my Gundam model kits together (I lost a piece! >_<), this has been a relatively stress free Christmas. I've got a few days left until I have to go back to work, so I've got to make the most of what time I have left, if I can!

X-mas Madness!

It's that time of year again folks! A time when all logical thought and reasoning goes right out of the window. I am of course talking about, Christmas.

Over the years, I have grown to despise this particular holiday, mainly because of the fact that there is no other holiday in the year that COMPLETELY and UTTERLY INCAPACITATE LIFE AS WE KNOW IT!!

Retail and High-Street stores grind to a halt under the strain of virtually millions of people spending tons of money on stuff they don't need, to impress people they don't really like.

They also use this holiday season as an excuse to throw caution to the wind, and stuff their faces with stuff they KNOW isn't good for them, proceed to make complete twats of themselves in front of their work colleagues and bosses, and possibly embarrass themselves further by seducing a colleague they are attracted to, sleep with them, and end up regretting it in the morning.

Call me a Scrooge if you want, but I just don't see the appeal. I've never been much of a party animal to begin with (even though I love to dance), but to do the kinds of things I just mentioned earlier, without a complete regard for the consequences of such actions is beyond me. To make matters worse, you X-mas lovers insist that every one else should be doing the same things, and if they choose not to, they're shunned and ridiculed for not getting into the "Holiday Spirit".

Let me tell you straight right now. I really don't give a toss what and how you choose to celebrate the birth of your almighty lord, just leave me the hell out of it! >_<

Personally, I'm planning to minimise my exposure to Christmas as much as humanly possible, and like the proverbial grizzly bear about to go into hibernation, stock up on as many quality Anime DVDs, Video Games and Gundam model kits to last me the entire period until the advent of the new year, where the cycle will begin ALL OVER AGAIN!! *_*;

As far as I'm concerned, everything about Christmas is a complete waste of time.......

......although, I wouldn't say no to a kiss under the Mistletoe with a really cute girl! Santa? If you can do this for me, I will forever sing your praises, and preach to all and sundry just how awesome Christmas is!
