    I sat down two nights ago to write you a thing, but alas it was not to be. But here I am, my trusty Tuesday night upon us once again, with some actual time!

    Firstly, are British boys famously short? I'm unaware of how the British stack up on The Scale of International Tallness. Did it occur to you to find a tape measure (or 12inch ruler, depending on what "taller than British boys" actually means ) and measure yourself? I NEED NUMBERS I NEED TO KNOW IF I AM TALLER THAN YOU OR NOT SO I CAN ASSSERT MY AUTHORITY OVER THE VERTICALLY CHALLENGED.

    We actually might have a potential new housemate so if you wanna take me up on that offer time is running out fast

    Also I'm considering changing my name to Katholic Nun when my time with this name is up... can you convincingly photoshop a Kardashian girl onto my avatar?

    Yeah, take a look at the wall now

    Out of curiosity, how tall are you? I've never really imagined you as being a particular height, so for all I know you could be miniscule or even taller than my Australian-bred self!

    I have not seen That One Guy On YouTube Who Can Draw Half A Deer With One Hand And Finish It With The Other, but he sounds like quite the handy man to have around! What else does he do that he starts with one hand and finishes with the other?

    In Heaven, they dream of Hell. Even in the afterlife, the grass is always greener, the fire always brighter, on the other side.

    I WILL PAY YOUR AIRFARE IF YOU MOVE IN WITH ME INSTANTLY

    We don't age less quickly, but we do grow taller from the wide open spaces and fresh air. Not saying that that has anything to do with the time difference, but it is another interesting factoid since we're so into those lately!

    OK I shall respond to some of your factoids since you paid me this very kind consideration

    1. You could never be the devil, I too suffer from can't-be-arsed-to-shave syndrome, which leaves me sometimes with up to a four day growth before I can't stand it anymore and have to fix it. As to where the practice began, I'd say it was on the corn fields where the men who we now call Amish but back then were just called men decided "man this facial growth is hot, I need to plough these corn fields without it". Then they went home and (many in unison) found their wives' kitchen knives and discovered very quickly that using them was a mistake. This led to the invention of the razor. True story you can Google it along with the story of the first milked cow.

    3. LEFT HANDER BUDDIEZ FOREVAAAAAAA.

    4. All but one happened in the Summer-ish time, but it wasn't an issue trust me haha.

    5. I saw it as a child but don't remember much about it at all except for "How do you solve a problem like Maria" and a quite tedious scene where the children had to do a goodbye number before they went upstairs to bed from their fathers' cocktail party.

    8. You misunderstand. I am not ideologically opposed to cuddles or cuddling. I feel I would make a very decent cuddle-giver and receiver (as you can tell by the open and natural air with which I talk about them). What I have an issue with is people talking about how they like cuddles. If I'm on Grindr and somebody says "I like cuddles" or "do you wanna come over for cuddles" I immediately shudder hit the block button faster than Jesus wakes up when he dreams of nails.

    9. WELL JEL AHAHAHA i love lower class England. They're fun.

    10. I'm workin' on it. But by the time I get there you'll be in Bloody Florida.

    OK now I have some news! It's part good, part bad news. So... my housemate Scott is moving out. We all sat down and had a talk and we agreed that when the lease comes up in May, we won't be re-signing it with him. He's annoying and he and Luke just don't get along (and they're home a lot together) so it should be a positive change for all of us. Unfortunately... this also means money will be tight until we can find somebody new, since all the bills we split three ways will now be split two ways instead. So what I'm getting at is... you interested in moving in? :D

    It's gotten to the point in our friendship now where I'm honestly not sure which little factoids you know about me, so I'll shoot you ten in the hopes that there are at least seven among them that you don't know!

    1. I hate beards on myself and others and firmly believe that people who grow them voluntarily are of the devil or compensating for a lack of manliness within themselves.
    2. I got my finger caught in a chair this morning resulting in both skin tearing and significant bruising under my fingernail which makes it really hurt to type. SEE? YOU SEE HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU?
    3. I'm left handed which makes this all the more tragic.
    4. Every sexual relation that has happened in my life that was not with Luke has occurred outdoors.
    5. I did not know that that picture was from The Sound of Music.
    6. My least favourite word in the English language is 'inappropriate'
    7. My favourite word in the English language begins with an F and ends in "ellatio"
    8. My biggest turn-off is people who talk about how they like or want cuddles.
    9. My record for movie seen the most at the cinema is Catching Fire at 7 times, followed by The Avengers at 6 and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II at 5.
    10. I live a 21 hour flight away from you.

    What exactly will the story be that the journalists are clamouring for? That two friends in separate countries both got rich and famous? No, I think we need more than this. Perhaps we should live together but in separate wings of a mega mansion that stretches the length of London to Florida. Perhaps we could adopt a black child together that neither of us have much to do with and is raised by a nanny who lives in another wing of our mansion.The one placed on the Pacific Ocean. Perhaps you could tell them about that time you were typing me a message, even though you really needed to take a crap. The possibilities are endless!

    Our right or their right?

    I certainly hope you mean our right, because the one on our left has that look of just the perfect amount of disdain to convey my usual energy. Not too much, not too little. Just enough to show a general dissatisfaction with the running of all things worldly.

    Also how is bringing you crisps only a four hour flight? Where on earth do you think I live, Belgium?

    So I have an addition to my story about The Hopeless Romantic Who I Didn't Want. I was standing in the line at KFC on Saturday evening (as one does) and I looked to my left when I noticed somebody coming in. It was Him and one of his female friends. I quickly looked away before he could spot me, though I'm guessing he did anyway, because two minutes later without even ordering, he and his friend left without a word.

    I can now tick 'Drive Somebody Out of KFC Using Only My Presence' from my bucket list.

    Just as you've now added "give somebody the flick" to yours. I hope you get to achieve that dream some day. I truly do.

    TELL ME MORE ABOUT YOURSELF. GIVE ME 7 FACTOIDS THAT I DON'T KNOW.

    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.

    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?

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.
    Location
    Three thousand miles from home

    Occupation

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

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