Nothing to see here... Move along...

I have nothing really that I want to talk about... Lets see what comes out.
I realise I've been extra shit at doing this lately, but I've got 2 formspring questions so I figure I'll answer them and maybe make a wee post too.

This is the guy from Derrick Comedy, so I find it a little hard to think of him as a music artist, but this song is a fair aul choon.

and here's another song I've been listening to a bit lately.


Was just listening to this there, he tells a little story about halfway through, it's good. Give it a listen.

"Why did you start a blog?" - Eh, for a few reasons. My friend Sarah had a blog and I enjoyed reading it, so I was hoping to make something like that. I guess it was partly for the attention too. I had this idea in my head that loads of random people read your blog. I don't know where I assumed these people came from, but I just assumed they were there, creeping around the internet reading blogs. They do exist, but not in the hundreds and thousands that I had imagined for every single shitty blog. I also stopped writing a diary years ago, so I figured this could sorta keep trail of events that I would have otherwise forgotten.
I didn't imagine how much I'd get out of it for myself. I'd like to say I started it to arrange my thoughts and think about my feelings etc, but I didn't. That was unexpected. 

"Who is your idol and who is your favourite person that you know?" - I don't know who asked this, so I don't know who to say. I don't have an idol, there isn't someone I'd rather be. Given the opportunity, I'd change the world, not change myself. Actually that's not true, I'd change the world AND change myself. 
My favourite person that I know is  {"iv":"YXdmspUeJvAqeMEzaUYFgQ","salt":"6B5xhwfjaKg","ct":"rW6ot7H3cAhM56uDlvgG"}
I really don't know though. Everybody is good in different ways.

"Do you think you are more apathetic than most people and do you think it is a bad thing?"- I had to Google apathy. I never really thought about it but I guess maybe. I think the average emotional person doesn't realise that most people aren't as emotional as them. Or maybe it's just the people I know don't cry or jump around with happiness as much as other people. I definitely think "what's the point" too often. When I was little I used to care too much about things, and it only ever really brought unhappiness. I think I worried and stressed too much sometimes so now I just have a much more hands-off approach to things. 
I always feel like this blog is full of self-pity and I hate that, I keep thinking it's too self centred too, but personal blog yadayada. I started watching The Tree Of Life last night while I was quite tired, and there was a bit at the start where the woman was saying how people either choose the path of Grace, or Nature. Grace lets other people get their way, it gets its happiness from others being happy kinda thing, and Nature just wants to satisfy itself. Or something like that, I can't really remember since I was falling asleep. Pretty much everybody these days are just Nature heads. I'd like to put other people first more. I used to try to a lot, but I think I've become a bit crap at it. Probably from realising the majority of people wouldn't do the same for you, but if you expect them to then you're not really putting yourself out at all by putting other people first.....
I dunno....
In short, I guess I'm probably slightly more apathetic than most people; re-reading the question the person who asked it clearly thinks I am ^^. An "if so" wouldn't have gone astray. I keep on changing my mind about my answer to this question but sure feck it, who cares really.

Oh that Tree Of Life movie, I fell asleep and didn't watch it all. I kept dozing off actually and waking up and being very confused. I'm pretty sure at one stage there were dinosaurs.... Lots of shots of space too. It looked really cool actually. Not a conventional movie at all.

Tomato soup

Watched "Swingers" with Colly the other night, it was really good. I think the words "baby" and "money" were used about a million times throughout the money. It has absolutely nothing to do with actual swingers. The meaning of that word must have changed since 1996.
It's about a guy who's girlfriend breaks up with him and his mate (Vince Vaughn) is trying to get him back on his feet.

I listened to this song the next day for the first time in ages the next day and it's sorta similar, about a down and out guy, but this ones a much sadder story.

The hoods have loads of great little story songs.

So to my anon questions.
Actually, the questions have really been dying off lately since I guess the novelty is wearing off and posts are less frequent, so to give it a lil extra boost, how about you try finish off this sentence:
"It's okay for us to treat animals how we do because:".
The reason I chose this is because I'm a big veg-head. Also I was in a petshop the other day just for a laugh since I was walking by, and the poor animals are having a shit time in it. There were 3 gerbils, in a corner together shivering and not moving. There were loads of birds crammed into a cage together, I tried to take a video but my phone can't apparently, so here's a picture. They just made little coo-ing noises and flew from perch to perch the whole time we were there, presumably they just do that forever until they die because who's really going to buy them?

Obviously animals in the food industry get treated an awful lot worse, but if I was going to buy pets I wouldn't buy them from a pet store where they keep the animals like that...

"three wishes. go. and don't be a giant cliché"-
By "don't be a giant cliché" I assume you mean just do realistic ones that aren't also Miss World answers or whatevever. So here goes. I've put a lot of thought into these...
1. I wish someone makes a beer that actually tastes really nice and doesn't give hangovers.
2. I wish I had a tame monkey as a pet.
3. I wish it was trendy for people to let their dogs wear cowboy hats.

If these all come true I'll be raging that I wasted my 3 wishes on these.. Actually... No I won't, I'd be delighted.

Productivity has gone through the roof.

Yesterday Colm and I were bored off of our tits. We did everything we typically do and were left bored and had no idea what to do. It was then that I realised why normal people make plans. If you aren't one of those weirdos with plans, you just end up in places like yesterday where you have literally not a thing to do.


We made some very vague plans so we could try our hand at being normal, and then fortunately it became late enough to just watch a movie and then go to bed. It was one of those subtitled Japanese samurai movies. I like when movies aren't trying to be the biggest thing ever. All those fucking Marvel movies wreck my head. Once in a few years a movie like that is okay, but when they're pumping out these overdramatic shitty movies it's just annoying. I also watched Everything Must Go with Will Ferrell, it was really good too actually. I've never before found myself being one of those people who's like "BUT WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?" after a movie, but I was kinda like that with that one. Normally I like the mystery of the protagonist's (<- check me out, I'm an English snob) future so long as the current problem was resolved, but I guess I kinda felt I'd like to know what he does next, since I dunno what I've to do next!

I have plans for the next few days (til wednesday), so life is great right now. No worries budday.

"pretty sure it's your turn in draw something." - Yeah, sorry whoever this is. I've become really lazy at it now that it's not the alternative to studying. Speaking of which, results come out on Tuesday. Not looking forward to that.. So much to lose, so little to gain. I'll be disappointed with less than a 2.1, and I scraped a 2.1 last year and I definitely feel I did less well this year so I'm dead on track for disappointment.

"Do you believe in aliens?"- It's funny someone should ask this... The definition for an alien is "A foreigner, esp. one who is not a naturalized citizen of the country where they are living.", so given that definition, I'd have to say that I have met aliens, and have in fact myself been an Alien. When I was little, about 6 or so, I remember getting slagged by one of the kids in my class about this. I assume the question here is really, do you think there is life outside of Earth? Since life can be anything, like micro-organisms, I think that yeah there probably are aliens. Which is what I told this kid in my primary school, and he insisted on calling me Alien-boy and trying to get other people to call me it (it thankfully didn't catch on). I remember finding it really annoying, because he had this idea in his head that I thought there were aliens like ET amongst us or something, so he was slagging me because he was narrow-minded; I felt I was getting slagged for not being stupid like him. I doubt actual aliens have ever been to Earth, but I'd have to say, given the unimaginable quantity of space out there, it's pretty unlikely we're the only things living in it. This reminds me I plan on talking about cremation in one of my next post. I hope I remember!

"How many people use the encrypto blog?" - Eh, I can't remember. I think only about 5 or 6 people. (only 1 or 2 asked for the text-colour change so I'm not assed to re-upload it. If you REALLY want it email me and I'll send you a fixed version.)

"what's your ideal quality in a girl?/What does your dream girl look/act like?"- That's an unbelievably hard question to answer since I don't think I really know. There's this scene in scrubs, where JD gets Elliott back or something, and then he realises he doesn't want her. He has a problem where he only wants what he can't have and when he gets things, he doesn't want them anymore. Sometimes I worry that I'm like that. Sometimes I worry that I imagine that the ideal girl could make me as happy as I was when I was little, she could make the world seem as bright as before my sister died. If I do imagine that, then I'm screwed. Nothing can bring her back or replace her, I know that, but do I REALLY know that deep down? I fucking hope so. I think I do.
Linkin Park have this lyric, "Once the papers crumpled up, it can't be perfect again."

This is true, but being crumpled can add character to the picture in a way. Just because it was crumpled up, doesn't mean it's ruined. It doesn't mean it can't still be useful or beautiful.
If a girl's pen was to try draw a picture on my paper,(all this talking in metaphors is exhausting) I think mainly she'd have to keep me on my toes. My dream girl is pretty, not taller than me, not loud but not too quiet, a little more confident than me, tranquil, and fun. We're talking a dream girl there though, so I think I'm allowed to be that picky right?

Nothing to do but still there's better things to do.

I'm sitting here at the computer, and it's starting to hit me just how at a loose end I am. I have no obligations whatsoever. I have 4 squash matches to arrange and play, and that is the extent of my plans for the rest of my life....
Well I tell a lie, I just stuck 2 quorn sausages and a breaded quorn "chicken fillet" in the oven, so I guess you could say I have committed to eating them, not sure if that really counts as a commitment though.

Went out last night with the school lads for no reason really. It was pretty event-less really unfortunately. It was pissing rain so there wasn't too many people in town, but Ciaran's mate (who Shane's been making kissy faces with) was in town for her brothers 30th or something so we went to the pub where that was on. She's a pretty girl, but last night I realised that I had never heard her talk before. She's pure bogger like (not saying that's a bad thing), and she didn't seem as too cool for school as the vibe I got from her other times (last time I saw her she was making kissy faces with another girl which is a typical trying to be cool thing girls do, unless she actually is just a bisexual but I doubt that since she's a bogger).

I ate those quorn saussos and fillet thing in bred with ketchup, it was yummy but mo bolg is quite sore now. Weird. Not a healthy sign I think...

Christ I'm fucking boring....

Like honestly, what the fuck am I waffling on about...
This is just blogging for the sake of blogging.
This is boring...
