New Year

I’m alive, don’t worry. just taking a break from all things internet, well not really.

I’ve had an interesting New Year, spent in multiple places as usual. Most of it was spent playing Cards Against Humanity with Bryony, Danny, Basti, and Eva. I’ve fallen in love with the same so much that I now own a deck. We spent the best part of the weekend laughing hysterically and making up our own cards.

When Eva came down to Manchester with Basti of course she forgot to bring her own deck, which was the one we spent all weekend playing so I decided to go hunting in Manchester for a deck. Fanboy in the Northern Quarter is the only place in the city you can just walk in and buy a deck, and when I got there they only had two left! So if you’re hunting for your own, best to do it online. The CAH store is currently the only place you can buy the booster packs anyway (if you’re stuck on what to get me for my birthday, there is your answer).

Playing this game has motivated me to really put in the effort for my own games and now its all I want to do, besides everything else…naturally.

Sales

So everyone is preparing to go nuts with the sales after christmas. I got up at 7 to take a look at the Steam Sale. Apparently nothing I want is in the sale.. oh well! Anyway, since the majority of my Facebook feed is now taken up with people’s eBay purchases and selfies from the Trafford Centre, I have spent the day hiding in my bedroom.

I don’t know where i would be without Ricky Gervais.

Slipknot

Slipknot in January!

In other news, I just used all the Game rewards credit I have. I spent a few hours tonight on Skype with some more random folks from Omegle; like you didn’t know. Internet life has gotten really weird at the moment.

Christmas Cats

Edit: They climb on top of my mother’s wardrobe where there are straw baskets and, as you can see, they like destroying them.

Omegle at Christmas

Bryony isn’t here at Christmas and since the office is closed from the 19th I’m taking part in the good old sport of being on Omegle, not in that way. Weirdly though, I’ve actually met some nice people on there.

What else do I spend the holidays doing? Well the Annual N00b Harvest, of course! Since this is the first Christmas with me owning a delicious copy of Grand Theft Auto V I shall be directing my efforts towards that game. In previous years I would spend N00b Harvest on Halo 3, then to Halo: Reach but sadly all the people I used to play Halo with aren’t on Xbox LIVE much these days. I am also guilty of this.

Although I miss having Bryony here for Christmas it does allow me time to have a catch-up with some internet friends, there won’t be any cuddles though.

So this time around on Omegle I started a hashtag called #DomCantSleep which caught some attention on twitter, probably because I was one of like 100 people still tweeting at 5am in the morning.

UKIPSum

Who needs Lorem Ipsum? A funny website has created what they call the “UKIPSum generator” which you can use instead of the traditional Lorem Ipsum dummy text.

You can create several paragraphs of “slightly racist and homophobic dummy text”.

Common Mythconceptions IX

No sex before the game!

No evidence sex impairs athletic performance. Could even help male athletes due to increased testosterone.

Black belts are masters

Only introduced in 1880, in Judo, to show competence in basic techniques. Not ninja-level mastery.
