ooops. Forgot that I installed a comment blocker into chrome (thank you Kotaku.com.au commenters for making that necessary) and I was getting puzzled why I was unable to make or read comments on anyone's LJ.

12:14 pm - weekend
lunaminor has inspired me to ramble about my weekend while I take 5 from an insane deadline.

Tonight is The Lizzies - the annual awards night for the IT Journo industry. The mag I'm on is up for a few awards as are some other Haymarket publications, so we'll be there en masse and dressed to the max. I won best dressed last year and I'm hoping to go two for two.
It's a rollicking drunken affair usually and I'm assuming tonight will be no different.

I'll be lying on the couch, clutching my head and going "WHY?!" I'll take the time to watch shitty movies and maybe even order a pizza off the internet - my new fave thing to do when talking to people in person seems too dfficult.

The plan is to hit the gym at some point, but I think we'll screw that pooch when we get to it. Otherwise I'd like to think that I'll get some work done.

Christ. What a boring fucking weekend.

Welp... here's the full video of hawk_eye and I running around a forest with swords (and my axe! Or at least hawk_eye's axe, as he does own that sort of thing) because EA told us to. Or more correctly, paid his magazine to. It's... amusing. And was fun to do.

03:58 pm - Working for the man
I really like this job. Moving back in September was the best idea I'd ever had. But I'd forgotten that all work - even work you like - comes with that mentally exhausting routine. No matter how much fun stuff you might have done, you get to the end of a week, bump into someone over drinks and when they ask "what's been happening" you say "oh, you know - just work".

I think this is my round about way of saying that I need a project that isn't just a personal trainer and attempting not to drink my body weight in bourbon every week.

Maybe I need new hats?

03:50 pm - God knows if this will work
I have no idea if anyone will actually read this in time, but I find myself both in Melbourne and at a mild loose end in terms of accommodation on the 28/12. Anyone either a) able to help with crash space or b) feel like staying up for 24 hours drinking with me?

10:02 am - By popular demand
In all its ginger and grey glory, I give you The Supremo:

And no, I don't know why my facial hair has become ginger as I get older either.

Every time I grow a moustache, I give it a title. Not a name - that would be weird, but a title. It began when a friend referred to the vague collection of stubble that one day would become a paragon of facial hair as "some kind of proto-mo". The title stuck (it was the Protomo for its entire existence) and so did the tradition - I've had the Ultimo and the Maximo as well since those early days.
But this current follicular monstrosity has proven trickier to pin down in a single word - it's a remarkably ludicrous bit of facial decoration. Until today, when I realised it was obviously, the Supremo.
That is all.

If I do not get to make and eat this sandwich soon, I will die. Of lack of sandwich:


You start with this:

Continuing in my theme of attempting to post every day, here's some random bullshit.
We're moving offices today, kind of. Actually we're just punching a wall out into the newly renovated back area. All very exciting except we're busy as blue-arsed flies around here and we're supposed to be out of the office before 12. I think that means I'll actually just bugger off to the gym and work out for a bit. Then yet another Xmas party tonight. Sheesh.
Then flea-bombing the house. As we have fleas. In fact, Ophelia and I kinda aren't talking at the moment because we're arguing over who got the fleas in the first place. She seems to be blaming me, but hey - she's the cat, my money's on her.

Man, just realised it's 9 years of LJ for me. I really miss when this thing was a zinging.
