There's a storm in my teacup!

Well, in my dollar store mug.

Short-term relationship with the all seeing eye.
And other such pompous nonsense for a subject line. I'm trying not to babble in this post, just thinking of words, writing a paragraph at most about it, and moving on. Isn't that a fun idea?

Channel 4's Peep Show. Why did I not get completely smitten by this by the end of the first series? I recall enjoying it but not making a big fuss over it. The time to make a big fuss would obviously be now, if I were able to show off the wonderfully evil dialogue without having to write a lot.

Argos. I am charging down there tomorrow no matter what to get Mum's big elaborate Christmas present - one of those massive George Foreman grills they're advertising at half price. But is it a bit of an insult to give your mother cooking equipment? It's like when guys get deoderant - we're chuffed that people notice we stink, thanks for giving us the option to have a different stench instead.

Travel. Slight desire to do so soon - maybe another trek around London, maybe a trek to somewhere exotic. Not sure what I crave, if it's just to be out and about more, or to see a lot of completely new things. This'll pass, it feels quite a foreign notion for me.

My room. Jamie's staying over more than ever. My room's starting to feel chaotic. I'm getting lazy or disorganised, but I seem to keep desiring to tidy this room up and yet keep failing. I may have to find some way of making the project worth it.

The almighty dollar. I need to import some random US junk over. Do I get a Nintendo DS while it's so cheap? I wonder what form of converter I'd need to get for the plug to charge the console up.

Books. I've not read in a while, and this disappoints me. I want to yet can't think of what I feel like reading. If it's lighthearted and usually read on an aeroplane, it'll probably entertain me. I'm not one for serious things. I suppose it's an ignorance to the big bad world, deep down.

Computers. I'll repeat it: I wouldn't trust someone who didn't know which pedal was the accelerator to drive a car I owned. Why should I let someone use my PC when they don't have a clue what's going on? One positive is as the "computer person" in the family I keep getting £20 a turn for fixing the PC my uncle keeps breaking.

eBay. I will prepare junk to be sold on there by the end of this week: especially as an item I have 3 copies of is selling for £20+ each normally. It's simple money, and surely people are more desperate for items around Christmas? If you look at the prices slimline PS2s are going for on eBay, that's definitely true.

Sloth. Usually, it takes me way too long to write a post. This was spewed up in about a tenth of the time a normal post would. I wonder why I'm becoming so much more pensive and reflective on my posts, when I write? Too much time, too little to talk of, I s'pose.

I have never heard of giving a guy deodorant for a present. I can't think that such a gift would be anything but insulting.

I think it's probably what comes after lots of desperate "subtle" hints.

As for getting you mother cooking equipment, it seems insulting just for the implication that she should enjoy doing housework. Unless, of course, she really does...

She's been proclaiming it's a clever machine, and she has got it into her head that she wants one based off the comments from other people.

I don't imagine she'd actually use it very often. And I always feel a bit icky when I know I'm just enhancing stereotypes. It's like buying a goth something black: they've lots of that stuff already. Buy them something neon orange.

Lynx (Axe in the US?) deodorant and shower gel: a cheap gift for the guy who doesn't know what he wants for Christmas. It's a step down from socks and underwear.

When I show up your room will proceed to look as if a tornado hit it.

That, or it'll turn a large farm area with astrograss.

I kept reading tornado as tomato.

Well, if it's the same size as the standard SP charger, I'll be completely fine.

I may have to get one now.

It's weird, I didn't enjoy Peep Show on first series at all. It wasn't until the format was explained to me (it's filmed in the first person) and this new series that I've really got into it. and I never even liked the office very much but now i love this.
