Yeah; so its been a while. Why don't you all sue
me? lol What can I say? Sorry doesn't really cover
a 3 week absence to be honest, and the above comic
really doesn't. Its been crazy, but I finally think
I have found some kind of stability. Last week doesn't
For those who want to know about last week, it involved
1 crappy squirrels gig + the taste of chaos tour mixed
in with some early mornings and a work's night out. I was
even partaking in some Buckfast drinking, it was so
crazy lol. What can I say; You can take the boy out
of NS but you can't take NS out the boy. I think it was
a pathetic attempt at recapturing something which I know
for a fact, after these past few weeks has died. Don;t
get me wrong- I'm glad it has. In fact drinking it and
a shite load of tequila lead me to a night of disarray,
wandering past the Glasgow Hilton about 6 times looking
for the last train home. Its just that I've noticed these
past few weeks things have became much more mature.
Lunch in tupperware containers; taking reading material
into the toilet whilst dumping your load for the 2nd time
that day due to all the coffe you've drank; finding
that sleeping is better use of your spare time, than going
and watching the Transformers movie with Cuz and Co. (Not that
it's came up. We should do that Gibs ^^); Shaving every day!
Its scary, and very very different from the usual life.
But i'm kinda enjoying it so far lol. I even know what a
fiscal quarter is! Wow. I rule..... kinda.
Speaking of WOW, and moving quickly away from tupperware;
it would seem those thoughts of bitter tension i had
towards Blizzard and they're amazing competitor to FFXi
were all true. Well not all true, because i have yet to
prove that the Backstreet boy have their own Guild. I was
quite disturbed by this article though. My faith in the game
and all games generally was boosted to a whole new Level
though when I seen this article. Some may find it funny,
and some might scoff and wonder how anyone could play a game
for days on end without sleep, but then; most folk wouldn't
understand a need to escape from normal life so much that
it starts to take its toll and enevitably lead to destruction.
I hope you all spare a thought for Snowy, and spend some
time thinking of all those gamers who paid tribute to her.
This is what its all about for us Mr. Thompson. Hope you
can see past the obvious and ask why she may have felt the
urge to play for so long and see what kind of life someone
can have online compared to what she had otherwise.
On a lighter note, I got asked to do a strip for the work
featuring the one and only Dave, as a incredibly bad
tech employee doing all the wrong things. Why was I specifically
asked? Not for being a bad employee, for for being a bad
artist lol. No not really. Aparently they guys liked the site
and my Bosses seen it and asked me to depict dave in various
different scenarios which would inevitably lead current techs
to not do what dave does. A funny, techie kind of way to let
folk now how definetly not to treat folk on the phones and on
the floor. How it goes, nobody knows, but I will post the
first strip on the site, and following issues will also be
added. I might give it it's own page.
I think thats all I have to say, but now that I'm back in the
swing of things, i think i'll update later too.
Until the next time I update, this is Dave signing off!
