    The nunnery has been kind to me my child and has given me sufficient time to speak with my dearest friend Gregory Barrels of The Cotswolds. Their only stipulation is that I must wear the penguin at all times, keep the tracker on my ankle and never speak ill of The Nunnery. Failing to adhere to any of these will result in a SWAT team of nuns descending from the ceiling as though materialising from thin air with a blaze of gunfire from which - try as I might - I could not possibly hope to protect you.

    Anyway the main gossip is about how I finally gave that guy the flick. I didn't want to hurt his feelings as he is a genuinely nice guy but I told him that what he would need in a relationship and what I could offer are two very different things and I would only make him unhappy so it's best we leave it now rather than when we have more invested.

    He took it very well and was very enthusiastic that we should remain friends, and we chatted for a while but then I haven't heard from him since... and this was two days ago.

    So yeah.

    That wasn't really as interesting or gossipy as it felt in my head when it was happening at the time lol. Anything exciting with you?

    Oh also I'm organising my apartment this weekend, which is not exciting to anybody but myself however I've organised for both housemates to bugger off and leave me to transform the place. I've spent $300 in Howard's Storage World just buying storage solutions and I'm probably going to have to go back out on Saturday and get more because I'm addicted to it like porn or ecstasy.

    Also we don't sing in my nunnery, it's subbed out for target practice which I would not miss for the world

    When you allow your fingers to make decisions for you there's bound to be a certain degree of hit-and-miss. The origins of cow milking, for instance, we can call a hit (unless you're a- lactose intolerant or b- a cow), but the invention of the noose-knot might slide easily into the miss column.

    Your alacrity is appreciated, whatever it means!

    LOL but isn't it the coolest nunnery ever? They allow us cigarettes and machine guns and leather outfits. And nudity.

    I have lots to update you on, I have like half a VM already written on my laptop and then I had to abandon it for offline events but once again I haven't forgotten you! You are on my mind constantly I just wish I had time in larger blocks...

    Also you say you've been gone a week?

    I shall VM you again quick smart! I might make it a habit to just reply immediately when I get your messages because otherwise life swallows me whole and suddenly spits me out a week later and there you are in England, all unreplied-to.

    Or... you could get that Facebook we always talked about

    OK I'm here, running a little late but I'm here now and that's what's important. Of course when a husband leaves his wife for this long he's likely to come home and find her in bed with the postman, milkman, husband's brother or similar, but I guess in that way it's good that we are not a couple

    So firstly, if that's a Hairspray reference I don't get it, as I've only seen the movie once. If it's not a Hairspray reference then I don't know what it is since she hasn't done anything worthy of a reference since . And you haven't crashed and burned in affairs of the heart, you just have a habit of choosing the wrong women. You know, the ones that cheat or are slightly unhinged. It's all on them as far as I'm concerned, you couldn't be more wonderful if you tried. Or perhaps you could, but then people might be intimidated by your level of wonder and that wouldn't do you any favours either. In any case perhaps you do need a break from such things.

    My love life has taken an unexpected turn. Yesterday I got a text from the guy who decided to get involved with someone else before we could even have a first date, and he said essentially that it didn't work out because he had low self-esteem and pretty much went for the first person who was nice to him which was a huge mistake, and wondered if I'm still available and would give him a second chance. Part of me wants to and we've been texting since, but part of me can't really get over the idea that no matter which way you look at it I was the second choice. I'm also a little worried as he has more than once referred to himself as "a hopeless romantic" which translates in my mind to "high maintenance" which is something I'm not totally sure I'm up for. I'm not romantic by nature, more bantery. I'd prefer my relationship be more Chandler & Monica, less Buffy & Angel. So there's that. I'm blathering.

    Enjoy your lack of dread, I shall hear from you soon but considering I took a week there's no rush

    Hi I love you I haven't forgotten you I've been working so much! I shall talk to you soon don't hate me!

    By the way I still can't get over the phrase 'vibrated softly in joy'. It's perfection.

    Oh wonderful we still have a week, splendid! Splendid! (That is the one word nobody can actually pull off without a very specific Love Actually type of English accent, but I will push on nonetheless) I'm glad to see my epileptic interlude hasn't cost us the opportunity to celebrate.

    There's not much looking after to do now, actually. He's still feeling co-dependent and doesn't really want to be alone in case he has another seizure (which following the current pattern won't likely happen for months) but we got his nose stitches taken out today and his X-Ray came back normal except for a slight nose fracture that will heal on its own, so everything is starting to feel quite normal again! (As I type this my phone notifies me that I've received a wink on Manhunt from a chap named TBone91. The world turns.)

    College, girls and cinemas sounds like a much more fun way to be spending your time than manly heroism! What movies have you seen and is your best lady friend a potential love interest or have either of you friend zoned the other? You may have already told me this but we've discussed so many lady folk at this point I'm not sure which she might be

    What you just said about Waterstones reminds me of a book I bought but have yet to read, called "I'll Just Go Home Then; It's Warm and Has Chairs" by David Thorne, a lovable smart ass who loves to mess with people online and record it on his very own website. We may or may not have discussed it before, but if you ever want to read his stuff just Google "27b slash 6". You will not be sorry.

    So I apologise for my long absence from this wonder of a two-year conversation (I believe we missed our anniversary!) but I promise you I had a very legitimate reason. On Wednesday afternoon I picked my housemate up from work (where on earth could he possibly be going with THIS, Barrels wonders) and when I walked through the front door I noticed he wasn't following me and doing the annoying punching and kicking I usually anticipate when he's in my vicinity. So I turn around and see him standing in the middle of the hallway, staring intently yet vacantly at a spot on the wall above the door, as though he were following a spider. Then he followed this spider around the room and started turning on the spot before falling into the corner of the wall and having a seizure right there in the hallway. Now this was no ordinary seizure; he hit his head on the wall on the way down and there was blood everywhere. I called to our other housemate and he rushed out with a pillow to put under his head and then called an ambulance, the Indian man next door who happens to be a doctor came out to help and before you knew it, Luke and I were in an ambulance on our way to a seven-hour wait in the emergency room so that he could get stitches on his nose where he'd torn it wide open.

    So I had Thursday and Friday off work and I've been looking at him ever since lol. Remind me to show you a picture of him in the emergency room next time too, you can't miss it! I'd show you now only it's on my phone and I'm on my iPad and it's 3:45am and I've only just managed to get him to sleep as I transform into the father I never wanted to be.

    How's your week been?

    Haha I was always going to come back to this name eventually, just not quite this soon Audy was like "please can I change it back it's making postbits stretchy" and I was like "naw okay". Nobody cares about my genius, no sir they do not, they care only that their postbits line up in exemplary fashion. This world values order too much! Unintended social experiment complete.

    Also I think you're explaining the wrong part of your little monologue there. I picked up on the Flintstones reference right away, what I haven't a clue about is Waterstones

    The only thing new with me that I can think of is that I've discovered a love for Long Island iced teas. They're delicious despite an odd mix of ingredients I never would have thought of slapping together.

    Yes. You poor poor 19 year old, your life is flashing before your very eyes I feel so bad for you.

    Meanwhile I, at 23 and having already started my downward mobility, will be standing behind the counter of a liquor store watching the world go by until the day I die

    Wow I had no idea when I started typing this post that it would turn into an exercise in self-deprecation hahaha. Anyway!

    I had an idea once to stop that feeling that life is going by. You try one new thing every day and write it down and that way the day wasn't wasted. Nothing stupid like sky-diving necessarily, even something as small as trying the new lemon meringue ice cream that you found in the store or talking to someone you've never spoken to before. As long as it's something you haven't done before, eventually you'll get all of life's experiences and you'll have documentation of them!

    LOL you know, I just did clicked onto a new thread and saw that I had a notification but decided to post before I went to view it. I wasn't paying attention and posted and saw that I'd wasted my 7000th post on some crap in the staff DCC haha. If only I'd looked at your post first!

    ALSO IF YOU ARE STILL THERE COME ON SKYPE!

    I apologise for the horrible delay once again, I found myself largely without internet and I simply refused to write to you from my phone where I could not possibly give you the time and effort you require - nay, deserve.

    But now that I'm back in the world of the internets, let us begin! I actually forgot Willa Holland existed until I saw her recently on a rerun of Gossip Girl. I don't watch that religiously like I did The OC and she wasn't on it for very long, but I was actually surprised at how easily she could play a crazy party animal runway model. Seems more like Mischa Barton's area of expertise

    Poor Mischa though... She just can't get work anymore. She'll be the girl who used to look a bit like the one who played Marissa on The OC before you know it.

    I have no idea what avatar I was using at the time... but when I'm next on my laptop I will be sure to use my magics to find out! It'll bug me now too lol. I don't think it was Chelsea Handler, she seems like she was more recent than 2 years ago. Perhaps I was still a Raichu!

    I think my favourite part of that whole Brand speech was "you wouldn't kick her out of bed for eating your crisps, I shouldn't imagine" lmao. Also I saw Julia Stiles just recently! She had a supporting gig in Silver Linings Playbook, the movie for which Jennifer Lawrence won her first of what will be many Academy Awards :D

    OK other recommendations for what will be out nowish... The Hunger Games: Catching Fire was amazing, I've seen it 7 times at the cinema now lol. But you have to have seen the first one to understand it. Also Saving Mr Banks was very heartwarming and entertaining and your own Emma Thompson did a great job at playing the woman who wrote Mary Poppins!

    I swear to God I replied to you last night! Aaaaa the tricks your mind plays on you when you stay up until 5am watching Smallville.

    Don't cry for me, Argentina. I'm here now.

    Was the February afternoon when we met across a crowded forum actually frosty? Do you remember this for certain? I'm fairly certain it was cloudy but not cold here because February is in Summer and this is Australia where it's never really cold. We're closer to Satan, you see.

    I like to think of rejection as a reminder that the human race was not intelligently designed by me. If it had been, everybody would just love me. Then I could choose to reject them at will and make them feel like fools for ever believing they could land someone like me. Yes, that sounds right.

    And I don't know all of your answers, this is why I wanted you to post! I wanted to see how similar we were on the big important worldly stuff that is present no matter what country you live in. This way if we differed on any important matters I could say things like "lets not let it come between us" and feel like a really big person even though on the inside I'll know that I'm right and you and everybody else is wrong .

    SUPPORT both Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams, but especially Jennifer Lawrence. I love her so much. She's the be all and end all of life. American Hustle was a great movie, I thought. Long and talky for sure, but I like talky in movies. J-Law (yes, I'm not lying, people actually call her that) won the Golden Globe for that movie just yesterday I was very excited! She's on her way to a second Oscar in two years!

About Me

    Biography
    I was born. Then I grew up. But that wasn’t fun, so I grew back down again and started catching Pokémon.

    Most people are decent - and the more friends you make, the better life gets. So if you'd like to say hi, go ahead and do that thing! ;)
    Interests
    I like creating. Writing, drawing, vidding, programming… you name it, there’s a good chance I’ve failed abysmally at it. (Probably had fun though.)

    In general? Philosophising about stuff I’ll never know, reading Brian Michael Bendis, ordering things I have no need of from Amazon, arting around in Photoshop and watching old Munsters episodes. Not all at the same time.

    Snorlax. Since forever. I used to dream about getting a big ol’ Snorlax-shaped beanbag.

    …Who am I kidding? I *still* dream about that.
