The polish of a fading border.

I went through a bit of an icon rehashing tonight. My clichéd Paint Shop Pro technique of the moment for me is a basic faded border. It's perfect for retouching icons that began to look a bit blasé to me. I may continue with this idea throughout my other icons, just to give them all a (generally) similar style.

Did you know I intended to play Disgaea today? I intended to on Sunday as well. I seem to never find the time for games recently, but I still maintain my collecting habits. I acquired Rez, Rayman 3 and Quantum Redshift in a 3 for £15 offer. I also went a little mad on, deciding to order DVDs (Battle Royale and Quiz Show) along with Flipnic. Of those DVDs, the former was acquired to entertain Mms. reaperfox et ugerchucker for their visit next week, where we shall also see Jerry Springer: the Opera at some point.

To get cheap tickets for this show you need to head into London and book in advance. The ticketsellers have to confirm the ages of the people who will watch the show (people under 25 get fantastic seats at half price). Obviously, I am not three people, and as these two will not arrive until Tuesday, I have managed to rope two other people (Mms. asti et trudsss) to come along and get the tickets with me. Nothing like a bizarre plan and a chance to be in the centre of London with friends to amuse me. I'm a Super Happy Man tonight, or something.

On a more serious note, my Nan's going into hospital on Thursday for radiotherapy, and so I will not see her for a few weeks due to the potential radiation poisoning if I did attempt it. With this happening I will have more responsibilities and less ability to leave the house freely - with my nan's dogs living here for a month. This will leave thre canines in this flat, that panic when left alone. As a result, the solution is simple: do not leave the canines alone in the house at any time - meaning I shall stay indoors a lot over the next month.

Oh, I forgot to pass some info on as well. Jess, you know Jacob was saying he couldn't find Crazy Taxi 3 anywhere at all? There's at least three of them at the Enfield Gamestation (as in, not our shop, the multinational) - I suggest you get him to ask them to ship one up to the Leicester shop for him - they're only going for £20 as well. Or he can always order through their site, though that'd mean he'd have to use your card and I recall you saying you didn't want much else going on that.

I've had a few entertaining conversations tonight and after looking at a few more things I've downloaded tonight I'll be off to bed. I still have this foreboding feeling that I'm forgetting something really important somewhere along the lines, but damned if I know what that could be. Pfft.

  • Ooh, hello.

    I remembered how to log in on here. Gosh, dredging up the past is like using one of those snakes to get the gunk out of the bathtub. Apparently I…
