Amoxycillin Resolves Little For Now

I keep hankering for the taste of shandy at the moment. I was once told shandy's a lot like quiche: it's not for real men.

Today my most recent eBay win came through - and it's a beautiful Tetris board game. It's simplistic and fun, though it doesn't feature the infamous Tetris music anywhere. For gaming families, this is a wonderful thing to try to snipe in the near future. Also: 7 times 16 is now 122. Remember this, there'll be a test later.

Today was quite warm, and alongside medication, this positive weather has made me feel better. I'm not totally there yet, but... I'm better, and that's nice. Jamie's coughing as much as I am, which is either a promising thing regarding how well I'm doing, or a sign I'm dragging her into this whole sordid affair.

Today was also a day for travelling. I took Jamie to a charity shop for cats. The profits are used (amongst other things) for looking after cats - which includes neutering or spaying the cats if need be. I spent two pounds there, wondering whether I helped or hurt a kitten in the long run. We then went past the workplace, picked up some games to take advantage of Game's stupid offer (take four bad games in, get a good one for 99p) and headed into the town. As I didn't want any of the games in the offer at this point in time, and I took a few of my own awful games in, the shop repaid my helpfulness by giving me a game I did want indirectly: Zookeeper on the DS. This was a game Jamie liked the idea of more than me, I'll be honest. But I'm sure it's a good game to have lying around in reserve to mess with, when I find boredom sets in with the other games I possess.

We kept trying to avoid the Enfield Town tramp, Lenny. He keeps on noticing us in strange places - Jamie recently got on a bus he was on, and we saw him loitering outside a bakery late last night. He'll scare Jamie if he goes on about 70s music, I fear. I want to take a picture of him from afar, and show you all his awesome tramp power, but then he'll possibly get very scared with me or very angry at me. I've never seen an angry tramp, but I'd imagine an angry tramp would try to grapple and pin his opponent down before spitting on them, and I don't want that to happen to me at all.

We headed to Argos and bought Mum birthday presents, though I did forget to buy her a card. She wanted a hairdryer and a juicer but I also got a new telephone which tells her who's calling, which may be of use to her, as she gets paranoid about anonymous pranksters. We then walked up to work and I did little - the manager and the owner discussed the absolute mess the place was in, and the chaos that ensues from it. As a result, I had to try to do bits of work around the complaining. I put rentals onto the system, and as a result finally got to see The Incredibles. I can't remember how I didn't see it while it was at the cinema, but it's a nice film for home entertainment. I'm not sure about Cars, given the preview of that on the disc, but then I'm not sure of this Robots film either, but I'll give that a try on Friday, apparently.

And now I'm half-heartedly typing this post up, while I listen to Pulp Fiction. And Jamie telling me to eat; I've not been eating so much recently due to the gland making swallowing painful. I have a spectral quality with how I look right now. I'm a rotting-flesh smell away from zombiedom!

  • 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…

  • FIFA Test

    This came up while playing FIFA 12. A bit of NBA Elite-style Jesus-posin'! This is also me posting it into LJ to see if I can find a workaround to…

  • Wow
