Went to turn the lamp on in the room I'm staying in at my sisters and smacked my head on the part of the sloping roof. Bloody hurt and now I have a large red mark likely to turn into a large bruise.
I don't suffer from insanity, I'm quite happy with it

We just had a game of Articulate. My littlest sibling stormed out in tears :lol: It's fucking sad how competitive and critical we all are of each other, especially me and my elder sister, but damn it feels good to shit on her parade sometimes.
New years resolution: Support my siblings and encourage them in everything they do :P fat chance!

The increasingly annoying and pointless ways that toy manufacturers package their products. Toy cars, dolls, anything really - all strapped down using metal twine wrapped around plastic tags, immovable plastic clips that require a screwdriver and an oxyacetylene blowtorch to get through, and more fingernail splitting, flesh tearing methods of torture to be endured before finally being able to prise open the now already damaged contents from their maximum security housing.

So, you've got a Rapunzel doll in full wedding dress and a veil made out of delicate, flimsy material. What do you do to pin it back? Possibly an elastic band or some form of hair tie? No. You use metal wire bent over and twisted so far over it rips the material even before you get a chance to try and get it out of the box.
Why not send it back? Ever tried telling a seven year old the present she wanted the most, and has only just opened, has to go back? No chance. It's got a hole in it, I'm angry, but there's nothing I can do about it apart from write an angry e-mail. And I don't even know if I can be bothered now anyway as my daughter loves it, hole and all.

Still.

A friend not letting up on joking about my appearance. If I get called "junkie" one more time, i'll end up socking him one.

I'd take that over 'AIDS' :P

Talking of ridiculous packaging, my Sennheiser MX470s my bro got me this xmas could have come in less packaging though thankfully I didn't do unto them getting them out. They do come with a ridiculous variety of pad/ring things though.

I recently got a set of sennheiser headphones and it was like a bloody aptitude test having to liberate them from the packaging.

I'll punch him in the balls when I'm back? My aim is even better.

I am kind of looking forwards to getting away from the island. The drinking and drug culture here is not something I really enjoy...

I hate being on call, it's like being off work but not being able to go anywhere, I'd rather just be in work

Why not donate them to a charity shop? Better than binning them.

I've got one bag for ebay, one for the charity shop and one bag for the bin. Binned stuff is clothes with holes in, broken shoes held together by glue etc that they won't take anyway.

Turned on the hot water about 40 mins ago so I could have a shower before I went out. The water's still cold because my brother tried to run a bath and everyone's using the washing machine. I'm going to be seriously late now :evil:

Got an iPad.


What the actual fuck. I had Thomas The Tank Engine sets when I was 5 and I felt rich as fuck with them. :lol:

I had a six year old teaching me how to play Fruit Ninja and Angry Birds on her bright pink 'tablet' today, whatever the hell that is.
