Yesterday, I found myself chasing trams home from work, and wondering why I ever loved doing this.

Today, I did something quite different, and found myself trusting my instincts again, finding something changing within me once again. Like I was suddenly, just for that short time, flowing and on the right track, again.

Striving for routine, addicted to change.

I got a sweet new phone the other day that is finally internet capable which finally allows me to post in here on the go - something I've wanted to be able to do for a long long time.
Will probably need to find a proper android lj client so I can correct spelling errors like that one back there that I have totally noticed but can't seem to select to fix it.

Fun post coming up soon, promise. I know it's been weeks to months.

edit: Spelling error fixed!

Following up from yesterday's post, generally everytime I sit down at my computer after I get home to see what's going on, I'm immediately confronted by too many exciting and wonderful things that anything I had intended on posting on my journal is blown out of the water.

The self-serve registers in Coles are nowhere near as good as the operator controlled ones.

As much as I hate Twitter, I can't help but notice the last bunch of posts I've made here are about 160 characters or whatever the limit over there is supposed to be.

The next big post I make here is the one I've been wanting to write for the past 8 years, since I started this journal. But I need to be ready to sit down and write it up. Properly.

(You can bet it'll be friend-locked)

It only took about 3 years, but the Return trilogy is finally done.

And that's probably the last set of CD compilations I'll be making.

It really seems unthinkable that once upon a time, I would be looking at my computer screen and be astonished that words would appear on it and it would be another person actually saying them to me. Words that I could respond to in the same way.

Unthinkable that once upon a time, this wasn't even possible.

If I could find a way to make posts from my car, I'm pretty sure I would easily easily easily go back to posting as much as I used to. It's only when I get back home that everything that's in my head is quickly forgotten.

Will have to look up buying a laptop and getting wireless internet, methinx.

Haha, new years resolution... broken.

I won't even bother looking up the stats on this one, they'd be embarrassing.

Some end-of-year posting will be coming up soon though, especially considering the second half of this month is packed full of fruity flavour.

In Ultima: Escape from Mt Drash, quite probably the worst and least-known Ultima ever, the lowest rank you can receive in the game shares its name with my work's in-house developed primary application. The application was developed in 2005; Escape from Mt Drash was developed in 1983.

Coincidence?

I finally managed to wake up by 7am this morning. This means I might actually get to work on time for once. It has been weeks since I got to work by 9am.

Valve are cocky enough to think that they can give out "guest passes" to their players to give to their friends to play Team Fortress 2 for free over 3 days, obviously with the idea that even more people will get addicted to their game enough to want to buy it.

What a brilliant idea. It'll work.

There's always something to say and it's always too damn late to say it.

I'd really like just one extra hour in each day, but I know I'd likely find a way to spend it up all the same.

I took 3 holidays in the last half of last year. One to Brisbane, one to Adelaide (both about 1000km's away) and one to Dubai (11666km's away).

Honestly, I don't know what I ever liked about flying.

I can confirm that all supermarkets in Melbourne are closing at the same time as any other city tonight.

Also, everyone else in the city seemed to have the same idea as me and try to find a supermarket anywhere they possibly could find one still open at 10.30pm.

Damn Christmas :(

Whoever decided that audio should loop on DVD movie menus, and/or that after the end of a DVD movie it should go back to that DVD menu, should be shot.

The DVD should not be allowed to DEMAND that you wake up when the movie is over if you've fallen asleep.

I can't believe I'm getting tetchy about having to wake up at 7am tomorrow morning instead of 9am like I usually do for a work day. I did this for twelve years straight at one point, for chrissakes!

You can write to webmaster@livejournal.com with a username, and ask for the account to be set to "memorial". No new entries can be posted, and it'll never be deleted.

I said not so long ago that I'd never make it to 60. Too long, too hard, too tedious.

Occasionally I'll go out on a Friday night with some people and go around a bit and do whatever we do, and I'll end up home at 1am-5am and think I've had a great night and extended my weekend by what felt like a day.

Tonight I've had a quick dinner, played a game of D&D, watched the latest Lost (again), while listening to my music, and it feels just as good.

I'm not ready to sleep yet, even though I feel like I'm supposed to.

I have had such a shitty leadup to Christmas this year. The amount of things that have gone pear shaped, things that really didn't have that good a chance of turning out quite so badly, did. All I wanted was to enjoy a few days off, to do some filler work, and maybe learn to cook something new.

I don't need this.
