New Year's Resolutions

I've been a bit more of a busy blogger today! Well, here are my new year's resolutions and i'll keep the world updated with how i'm doing with them...

1. I really really really need to stop biting my nails! I've been doing it since i was 7 and i just can't stop. It's not that i haven't tried and it's not even to do with willpower, it's just that i don't even realise that i'm biting my nails before they are torn to pieces. No point using that horrible tasting polish thing to stop me biting because all my food tastes of it then so i'll just have to be extra careful...

2. Keep in contact with my friends while i'm at uni. I was a bit of a hermit last term in respect to giving my friends a call, but now with 500 free minutes a month and a realisation of how much my friends mean to me i'm determined to make that change!

3. And of course, most important, keep a regular update on blogger..

Happy new year.

Arrested Development

Ok it was only a matter of time before i started blogging about arrested development. It's by far my favourite show of all time and it was an absolute travesty that it was cancelled. Of course the blame must go on the american people, i mean not watching arrested development is more of a mistake than GWB in my books.

The show has attracted some fiercely loyal fans, who single handedly ensured the show lasted as long as it did by petitioning Fox. Ever since it finished there has been talk of a movie, a christmas special, a new series on the channel showtime, but nothing has come. If you haven't watched the show you really should go on to amazon and get series one, it's not too expensive and your life will be enriched forever.

Here's my plan for everyone to help to get it back
1. Buy the box sets- UK FANS-

2. Sign the petition (already nearly 12,000 signatures)-

3. Join the facebook group-

4. Force your friends to watch the show and buy them all the box sets for their birthday!


Sass attack

On thursday night me and a few friends decided to play a few practical jokes on our friends. We do this thing called 'sassing', where we go to the victim's house at about 5am and leave something for them to find in the morning. It might not sound that crazy or fun but the sass we did on thursday was amazing.

After getting our sass supplies from a garage we proceeded to make a collage of half naked men, and a condom with some greek yoghurt in the bottom of it with the words "let your imagination run wild" written at the bottom of it. We headed to our friends house at 5am and climbed over a wall before sticking the collage to his bedroom window so when he opened the curtain the next morning he would have 25 naked men staring back at him and a used condom, nice. We also left a pregnancy test outside the house of a friend who's just started dating a girl, along with parenthood magazines, probably led to some strange questions when his parents found them the next morning.

It was a good night, no sleep, driving round county down causing mischief and playing alot of fifa, good times for all.

Christmas eve and the like

Well it's Christmas eve and i've had a pretty eventful week or so at home. All my friends are back from uni now so i've been hanging out with them alot. Also now that i've found free time i've rediscovered my love of poker! I've got a real money account on party poker that i'm not doing that great with but last night at a friend's house we had a tournament and i came second out of 17 and won £20, which will probably be used on party thinking is that if you win money on poker you might as well lose it on poker as well...

It's been great seeing friends again, it can get so lonely in Oxford and it feels like you're trapped in a bubble. It's just nice to be home and relaxing again. Looking forward to christmas as well, getting a nokia n95 on contract and it looks pretty neat.

Chelsea are playing shit by the way, they aren't doing anything right and have somehow been getting away with it...

Oh dear God...

I'm back on blogger, i'm not sure why really because who is reading this, honestly. In fact if you are reading this i dare you, DARE YOU to leave a comment just to prove me wrong....see no one has, ha.

Ok, i think an update in my life is needed because i've abandoned my blog and haven't left a post since January. I got through my A-levels with hard work and perserverance to a crazy degree and had a wonderful summer, going to oxegen, heading to portstewart with alot of friends, spending time with the family, working in the godforesaken restaurant...... etc etc. When the summer ended i got A level results and was lucky enough to get in to my firm choice so i'm currently an Oxford law student, please don't let that immediately make you think i'm not a nice person...i'm sure it won't... I've finished my first term at uni and it was the most difficult couple of months of my life. The work was really tough and i've never had to push myself as hard. The people there are good though, there are very few of the snooty hard nosed people that the media would love to believe are lurking in the undergrowth and the people at my college really do help make the time go faster and more enjoyably.

Being home for Christmas is really nice though, i can't wait to see friends and i'm enjoying relaxation despite the fact that i'm still having to do 3 hours or so a day of law revision so as not to be left behind. It's difficult to sum up 11 months of your life in one post and it's actually depressing trying to remember the best bits of the last year and finding out that rather than having an array of stories, anecdotes and adventures to share, i'm actually writing about my lack of such things! Don't worry though (not that you should or would) the last 11 months have been very enjoyable and the reason you're not hearing of heroic adventures, promiscuous misadventures and all that lies between is not because there aren't any, but rather that i'm a lazy arse who can't be bothered wracking their brains to find them.

My tennis and football fetish is still very much alive. Chelsea have parted ways with Jose, and although i very much HATE that fact, i will eventually come to terms with it. Andy Murray has had a very good year, almost qualifying for the Master's Championships and he most certainly would have qualified if not for missing three months of the tour. In terms of my own personal performance my tennis (and golf) has gone downhill because of wrist problems that have materialised, as well as knee problems but hopefully that will get better. Football has been going o.k for me as well, i have scored my first goal for my college and although we've lost every match bar one, things are bound to improve....

I hope that everyone else has had a rewarding 2007 and is looking forward to 2008. I'm not sure how regular my posts will be here, i like to think that i'll be here more often than never but who knows.
