Yup. This'll most likely be dead in... oh, give it a day, I reckon.

Anyhoo.

Me and Social Events

So, I went to the college leaver's prom tonight. (I'm English, remember. My College==American High School)

I knew, oh, all of five people who went there. Out of a hundred and fifty, or so. This is off to a good start. Sit down, eat food (free), go and buy drink. It just so happens that the cheapest drink available is Coke at 1.50 a glass... Crap. So, blow about a tenner on Coke for the evening. Great. Eating into my rather limited budget. Alcohol is on sale, and I am allowed it, but at roughly 5 a pint, screw that.

Mingling with strangers:
Let's just make it clear. I hate talking to strangers. Doesn't matter the situation, unless I'm introduced to someone, my end of the conversation trails off to a mumble. So, I'm wandering around, looking like a friendless social reject, (Ok, I can't really deny that one given the above...) and generally making a fool of myself by standing around with a drink, looking like the scenery.

Dancing:

Oh, dear.

Next thing, some utter stranger grabs me by the arm, and asks me to dance. "Score!", your average person might think. I don't like acting like a fool, even if others are doing it without at least a pint. Add to that the stranger thing, and the fact that I have never danced in my life. "Mumblemumblecan'tdance", extract arm from said person's grip, and continue twice over the course of the evening.

Well, that was fun.</sarcasm>

Me and making an utter prat of myself

I just got a new mobo and a processor, also today. A nice shiny Intel quad core, socket 775. I completely blow the *IT wise kid* thing out of the water by telling Tech Support that all the pins are missing off the bottom of the chip, and it is therefore useless, can I have a replacement, thankyouverymuch. Now, I'm used to using AMD processors, whch do have pins on the bottom... 775's don't. So, I'm now waiting to get a very sarcastic email back. And I am dreading it. Mostly 'cos I have to reply "Sorry, I'm a ****, nevermind, mark it of as an I-D-10-T error."

Sounds like most of the parties I go to. Except I latch onto the people I know like a leech, in order to not look like a social reject. Which I am, but try not to look like.

And look on the bright side. Someone WANTED to dance with you. I've never been asked to dance. Ever.

Well, at least I'm not the only one then.

I nearly did that.

I'm not entirely convinced she was being serious.

Computers.

*censor bleep for a minute* ARSEY ****ING COMPUTERS!

My God! How hard is it to boot from a HDD? Apparently very much so. My new board hates IDE drives. And all my precious, irreplaceable stuff is on the one drive it *will* boot off. Pity that I need to *wipe* that drive in order to put Windoze on it. Oh, and this would happen *before* the day of a LAN party.

*hates overexpensive computer parts, not having the money to get another drive it likes, not having a job, and Bill Gates*

...Normally, I wouldn't care too much about someone like you being near my stuff. It's resilient. Today, however...

Lol

It started a while back with my dad's laptop, then my older brother's, then my older sister's, mine crashed a few weeks back and had to reinstall everything. The church computer I use had the graphics card die, then a couple months later the hard drive died, and just recently my mom's old laptop died, but we saw that one coming.

Yeah... Please stay away from the scattered and unboxed parts of my rig... It doesn't like me at the moment.

*uses Phoenix Down on topic*

Phoenix: *bodily slaps Hawk* And next time you nick a piece of my down, I'll cremate you!

*gets back up from the floor, rubs his beak*
So, good -*glances at clock*- evening people.

Firstly, HAWK HAS A JOB!!! *dances unashamedly* ^v^ At this moment, I could almost dance with another girl I'm so happy.

Bad news. It's a 7:30AM wake up time, and Hawk has screwed his bodyclock over so badly he now falls asleep at two in the morning...

Secondly, Hawk has had a major disagreement with Art. He hates his hands because they won't draw what his mind can imagine. He hates his drawings, because they look crap, further reinforcing his crappyness and unwillingness to draw. So, I'm starting from scratch. Drawing apples, still life, people *spits* that kind of stuff.

And that's about it for today.

Mr. Art is a fickle fiend. One needs practice to get better, yet will be discouraged when they cannot immediately draw what they imagine. I'm in the same boat right now... ^ ^''

What job do you have?

And... pissed? At whom / with what?
