Drawing again. And I'm not as shit as I thought I'd be. Guess I haven't completely lost my skill!

Double post but IDGAF. Managed to get out of the house for about two hours today, and I'm in no pain like the other day. And I got a chilli plant. :D

Went to Thinktank in Birmingham. Didn't realise how kiddy it was. The only bit I did enjoy was looking at the locomotive and few war era motorcycles in the bottom part. Quite disappointed with it, but it did kill 3 hours (5 if you include watching Ice Age 4 on the massive screen also in the complex).


Tonight I am going around a mates house to participate in banter and Jagers.

I felt exactly the same about the Think Tank, it's as if they think adults aren't interested in learning anything, so gear everything to kids. It was all very basic too, nothing really that you wouldn't have picked up in GCSE lessons.

...or Horrible Science, but yeah I couldn't agree more. A 50/50 split with kids/adults would have been great, but I felt the only thing that was there for adults was the lowest tier with all the old vehicles, but even down there, there were plenty of things kids could do or explore. Nothing worst than being chased around a museum by miserable fucking kids who got tore away from playing on the ball pit with the digger to be entertained with the machine that plays drums. Life is such a shit for children.

I haven't been to Thinktank but I believe it's essentially the same as the old Science and Industrial Museum. Brilliant place to go to as a kid twenty years ago but I can't recall it having anything that would interest me as an adult.

Given the broken foot, i am pleased that I managed to make 2 of the 3 bloodstock days,. Discretion being the better part of valour.....and the fact that the bruising on my foot has now gone black, I felt that it was time to come home. now to spend the rest of the day watching the live stream and listening to the ludicrous amount of CDs that I purchased :D

The scab is coming off the incision of its own accord, and it looks like my scar isn't going to be much bigger than it was at all! Just a little thicker.

I think they've fixed the sound issue with the live stream now. Just been watching Anvil and the Toms ov death seem to have been turned down a bit.

I just bought SO MUCH fun stuff for cake decorating. Plus i've decided i'm going to try and get work experience in a Hummingbird Bakery while i'm living in London. Making cupcakes for a job sounds AMAZING.

Well, it's nice that someone in the world is looking forward to it! I got complained to by countless people at work today that they would be playing. I have to agree.
