The date of my 18th birthday. I woke up early, realised I was suddenly an adult, and was so excited by the prospect that I went back for more snooze until 10 am. After that, I did the usual saturday morning thing, had a shower, cold pizza and beer breakfast etc. and then went with the old man to pick up a drum kit over from Richmond. Some furniture was moved out and I opened gifts from my immediate family. At 4pm my friend's band turned up, along with an assortment of guys they brought along with them. We had space issues to work out as we were still minding someone's piano for them even though we expected it to be gone by then. We decided to set it up outside, and managed to get a tarp organised. The PA equipment took ages to get rigged up, but the guy doing it refused all help. There was quite a bit of sitting down and spinning yarns. The first to arrive for the party were all the folks and friends of family. Myself and others had some minestrone to catch up on the food we hadn't eaten for most of the day. It turned out that a lot of the people that said they were coming simply didn't, and that left the chick situation a little drastic and the numbers watching the band later a little depleted. One of my best friends, who never drinks or anything like that (a rarity among young secular financially secure australian males), rigged up a bonfire. I had allocated this to him as he is the most responsible, dependable bloke you could meet, and he's also a complete pyro - he is s such a freak that he even organised a pile of bricks into a neat stack. 3 mates who I hadn't seen for ages turned up and I talked with them when I could. I had so much talking to do that I could hardly fit it into the time available. We, of course, drank only real beer and not beer that tastes like urine, for the most part - some joker thought it was a great idea to bring some Foster's Light Ice. There was a lot of grog at the party overall, as we had enough in the first place and lots of people brought their own. A good friend of mine bought 12 drinks and only drank 2 or 3. The whole thing kicked along nicely and absolutely everyone enjoyed themselves. The band were fantastic and even the singer managed to sound decent. They dragged me up there to play lead guitar on Hey Joe. I was very much drunk by this stage, but I still managed to do it quite well. I intended to do the cool thing, and look laid back while I played - chewing gum and that sort of thing, but I ended up swallowing the gum during the solo. After playing that the bassist said I should join them. The band finished and people hung around, kicking on until about 1 am.

sabre23t: Nodes to node

The last couple of days have been some of the best days of my life. I'm sure i've had better days at some point in my life, perhaps when I was in the womb.

Things that would grate and bother me have all seemed to melt away.

I attribute much of this euphoric feeling to kryptica and hamster bong.

Hamster bong has helped me through what has to have been the most depressing period of my life. Whenever I needed someone to talk to she was there for me. Thanks hamster bong. :) It's odd though, it was the most depressing time of my life but contained some of the happiest moments I can remember in my 20 years on this planet.

Kryptica is the most intriguing, intelligent, beautiful and open minded women I have ever met. She made me question things in my life that I would have never though of questioning before, this led to a big fight with depression on my part but in the end i'm much better for it.
Until I met her I couldn't understand anyone who was in love. It all seemed trivial and I never thought that I would ever understand. I care for kryptica like family and like my family I would give my life up for her without hesitation. I would do anything for her, but she's very independant and i've learned to accept this but nothing makes me happier than doing stuff for her. I enjoy brushing her hair for her at night because it relaxes her and she usually falls asleep, she looks so peaceful that even if i'm not tired I can usually fall asleep just thinking about it. The only thing that i'm worried about now is that she might get worried that i'm looking for a relationship and well I sort of am it's in a close friendship sort of way. I don't want to ruin the nice time just before bed when I can brush her hair or put lotion on her. This time is quite honestly the best time I've ever spent in my entire life doing anything. Even with all the other stuff going on in my life losing this time is my biggest concern aside from being alone which sort of go together. Sometimes I wish kryptica would ask me to do these things for her, I would really like it if I didn't have to volunteer all the time. I know she likes when I those things for her and she knows I like doing them. If you read this kryptica I just want you to know that you can ask me anytime and don't worry about it.

Thank you kryptica, for everything I will love you always.

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank hamster bong again for helping me out when I needed it. I will love ya always too, along with the rest of the family, ya crazy noder you. :)

Also, I would like to apologize to everyone who had to put up with my shit,mainly kryptica and hamster bong, when I was depressed, confused, jealous and completely frustrated with my life.
I feel really pathetic right now.

I woke up with a nasty hangover. I realized I had thrown up horrendous amounts of guck, all over my sheets, in the middle of the night, and the stink of alcohol was all over my room. After covering my tracks, I suddenly realized, in addition to a hangover, I contracted a nasty bit of food poisoning last night, from an iced red bean tea I had.

The double combination proved too overwhelming, and after I threw out the sheets and all the nasty stuff on it, I collapsed back in bed and passed out for a while. When I woke up, the dehydration and malaise felt horrible, I could barely move. Ugh.

And yet, I attempted to node today, but all in vain. I am so addicted to Everything it's not even funny any more. I'm so sick I cannot even stay conscious, and yet here I am, sitting in front of my computer, attempting to come up with a decent nodal idea.

Curse you, nate!

Went back to working on my No Doubt Lyrics nodecenter today, and apparently pissed off some of the other users who IMO were not pissed off by the fact that No Doubt song titles were all over the "New Writeups" box, but pissed off that their new nodes weren't on there to gain them extra XPs. Anyway, it's the first real controversy i've created on here, and i'm proud, although i've turned on the "Don't Display In New Writeups" for the Lyrics I add to this metanode collection for the near future, just to keep it calm.

Anyways, either check out the "No Doubt Lyrics" metanode and try the Tragic Kingdom nodebase, or you can even see the rant-node (TM):

Why people should stop creating nodes with song lyrics one after another after another

I'll admit, there are some valid points in there, but some are just people talking out of their ass.
Today was spent at work. Yes, I'm a spineless whelp and I'm still at work. Arrg.

Today, however, proved quite interesting... standing around the bottle return machines, I stumbled upon a blue folder containing a wealth of information. Someone from Tomra made the fatal mistake of leaving the service manual for the machines behind. This handy booklet has all the stuff Tomra service people are supposed to know, but normal people aren't. Now I need an evil grin right about here: >:-)

Wow, today was cool.

I went on a picnic in the park for the first time in years. My Girlfriend and i walked over to the store, got sandwhiches, chips, drinks, etc. Went back home to grab a blanket, bicycles, and a backpack to put it all into. Road down to the park, 15 minutes flat had i not rode straight past where i wanted to go by a full block. Woops. So back to the park we went.

The weather was perfect, warm, not hot, a nice big shady tree, and a cool breeze. We ate the food, then just layed on the blanket for a few hours talking about everything and nothing. Having to leave was the worst part. Especially since we both knew home was uphill, and all we had were bikes, oh well.

She wound up being able to stay here until around 9:30, had some pizza, snuggled on the couch waiting for her mom to come. I wish i could drive.

i would reccomend today to anyone, picnics with a SO are the single most relaxing thing in the world. Ok may not the single, but you get the idea.
Unlike everyone else, it seems that today/yesterday was far from the best day of my life ...

Broke up with my SO of more than a year tonight/last night/yesterday morning ... whatever, it was at 3:00 a.m. on 6-17-00. Sucked ... a lot.

He's just so damn nice, you know? Like those puppies that have been kicked around their entire lives, abused, neglected, and never having anyone realize how wonderful they are? He's like that ...

Makes it really hard to break up with a person.

It makes me feel like some sort of ogre, like I'm the type of person (because I could break up with someone so nice and kind) that could sell children to the black market or kill for money.

Not really good for my self-esteem in any case. Can't imagine that it helped anyone else, either.
