    Yes, we have blue tack here in Australialand, we're not quite so primitive that we've never heard of blue tack but I can't do that for two reasons:

    1) I rent my apartment, so such things are not permitted as it can damage the wall paint (not that they'd probably notice, there's been so much damage to these walls from previous tenants that they've begun to bear more resemblance to a patchwork quilt than a wall)
    2) It would look tacky. Blue tacky, one might say.

    Yes, Tony Abbott! That's the one, jolly good show! And yes, a lady named Julia did once subject him to a tirade. Of course, at that point she was the prime minister and he was the opposition leader, but things change, often for the worse. I'm angry at my entire country for allowing that little arsehole and his big ears--- no, I hate politics why am I doing this. Step back, Andrew. There's no use wasting this anger on a tantrum. I'll use it later on an assassination attempt.

    ANYWAY speaking of which (there is a link there so tenuous that you won't understand at the moment) have you watched Agents of SHIELD? It is your duty as an elder of the Church of Whedon and Rowling that you do. Of course a full appreciation requires that you first watch The Avengers and then before you watch episode 17 watch Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but that's what makes our Joss's universes so rich, is it not?

    Just realised I wrote that entire paragraph under the assumption that your answer would be no, so hopefully you prove me wrong! If you can't, it's time to begin torrenting, young man.

    I didn't know John Lithgow still had any pull in the show business community, strike me dead.

    Well the wall art was a bust, Celtic-wavy-designy as it might be. They sent it to me not in canvas form as I'd anticipated but rather as a five pieces of plastic-y cloth-like stuff all rolled into a cylinder. I could no sooner hang it on a wall than spread it on my toast. So that was $40.35 wasted... unless I can get each invidivual piece framed, which will cost me an extra $500. BUT IT IS SO PRETTY. I'll put it in your room along with your Oreo-shaped bed and the documents forbidding you to ever see your family again.

    Have you heard of our lovely Prime Minister over here in Australia? There's a lot of controversy about him right now because... well let's just put it this way. When there is a highly religious man who is against gay marriage in charge of a country and that is the least bad thing about him, you know you're gonna have a bad time. He's just released the federal budget and made all sorts of cuts to things like health and education (who needs those?) as well as essentially taking away unemployment benefits from the people who can't find work and making us pay $7 every time we go to the doctor (rather than the universal free healthcare to which we've become accustomed). He's a very very bad man indeed . I've been largely unscathed as an employed person with no health issues to speak of, but a lot of my friends are going to have a very rough two years indeed!

    Now to the question on everybody's lips...

    OK so here is the picture of my wall art:


    It'll probably default to a non-available image soon because that's the one straight from eBay and they tend do disappear once they've been won, so I hope you see this soon

    But now that I've had these other suggestions from you I kinda wish I hadn't bought it! Number 3 sounds freaking amazing and would fit in so well with my nerdy-ass decor. Could always put it up in your bedroom whenever you get here.

    Also just realised while typing that that "put it up" is a palindrome. Why didn't they make the word palindrome a palindrome... seems like a missed opportunity. Life, man.

    Lorelai. Always an A. That is the most amazing show and that is the one line I will always remember no matter what because it's one of the few high points in a final season that was otherwise not up to par

    I told you what I bought! A hockey puck, a rattle snake, two monkeys and some underpants.

    Also in reality where I so seldom live, I bought a huge piece of wall art that I will most likely never get around to actually hanging despite the fact that I already have everything necessary.

    I've noticed your lower case slippage when you're being a ... deddil. What is a deddil

    OH ITS A RESPONSE TO THAT POST BAHAHA oh you little devil you. Now it all clicks into place. The method of one's madness becomes realised an one is exonerated.

    It's 3:30am again, idk what I'm saying I've been awake too long and shopping. So shopping, many outfits, no shoes... just no shoes. Hockey puck rattle snake monkey monkey underpants

    My notifications said you out a VM on my wall which started with "oh yay feel free to post here" or something like that but I don't see it on my wall or in our convo feed

    That article is amazing, I love The Onion and The Daily Currant, I'd love to write things for them haha. What you wrote me in that PM however is making less sense and your talking over the last few days in general has seemed less and less sane, in a spiral of sure downward mobility

    Let me now read the PM again and see what I can see, watch this space!

    Confringo. Just constantly. Just blow ♥♥♥♥ up, jab and run, jab and run. How about you?

    I keep hearing great things about The Walking Dead but I've yet to see any of it! I have to get through so much TV and reading at this point it's not funny

    The dwarf population might have an issue with my requirements but when it comes down to it I'm pretty sure I can take them.

    And yes PC did do an April Fools joke this year, but you'd be forgiven for missing it lol. Basically the admins put the names of each forum on a rotating thing so that every time you refreshed the page each forum title said something different and funny. When you reply to this remind me to send you screen shots. I'd do it now but it's nearly 3am and I'm on my laptop while the screenshots are on my iPad lol

    Also Dipu (the other mod of my section) made a thread claiming that he was going to shut down Chit Chat Cafe... which was completely lame and embarrassing to me personally yet some people actually fell for it.

    Well I don't know that he's usurping anything to be perfectly honest, I've still yet to meet the boy and it's been a fair few days now since I've heard anything about it. For all I know he's found another place and moved right on in lol.

    Though it wouldn't be a terrible thing, I think Luke and I are managing quite well on our own. I'd be happy to wait for someone special to move in, perhaps somebody English and of more than one metre in height.

    Oh silly boy, you're meant to put the metre ruler up the wall next to you, mark where a meter is and then put the ruler above that to find out the rest!

    But I'm glad to know you're more than a metre tall, I could never be friends with anybody less. I'm kind of like an amusement park ride, you must be a certain height to enter... that came out sexual, though in hindsight I don't know what else I might have expected from that analogy.

    I can do better than tell you whether he's hot, I'll show you a picture and put you in the awkward straight-man position of having to decide that for yourself.

    I for one think he's absolutely adorable. Whether he's nice or not remains to be seen, I haven't actually met him yet lol

    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.

    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.


    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

About Me

  • About Barrels
    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! ;)
    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.
