This day

So, here are some things I learned today.

1: It is possible to have a shower and brush your teeth at the same time.
2: One should always give themselves more time than they need to prepare for a date.
3: Coraline is a PG movie , with 7-8 year olds for main demographics. No need to fear.
4: Movies with 7-8 year old demographics can still be surprisingly awesome.
5: If someone is throwing polos at you, do turn around. They could be a friend! 
6: Persistence can get you far, but it wasn't meant to get you everywhere. (Not as dodgy as it sounds.)
7: The drums on Guitar Hero: World tour need a proper walloping to register anything at all. This is very fun.
8: Be yourself.

Saw Coraline today, I would really reccomend it as a movie, it was the first 3D movie I have seen in absolutely years and years and years. I don't think I'd see it twice, but it has some good characters, a really awesome setting and filmography, and the 3D just plain old looks cool. Nice setting, like I said, some very creepy moments, but in a good way, like a spider web. Beautiful, but unsettling. Hung out in town today, and then headed over to a friend's for a birthday party, with cake and pizza and Guitar hero. I gave singing a try, in the back of my mind I like to secretly think that I'm secretly really awesome at singing. This is mostly untrue. I would consider myself a passable singer at best. I won't peel the paint off the walls, but I can't carry most tunes very well. But that has never stopped me from having a go anyway! :P

Nicole is pretty wicked awesome. She is a thinker. She thinks for herself, and does not let herself be told what to think, it's pretty impressive, really. She's also just awesome in general. Pretty decent sniper in Halo 3, knew to get behind cover, managed to kill me out of absolutely nowhere, very impressed. Also did not cover me in makeup like she was doing to all the strapping young lads at the party. She was surpirsingly good at making them look surprisingly good. Of course, wearing makeup makes you no more or less of a man, but it's nice to have your wishes respected. Relationships are pretty interesting things, a bit like learning to fly while hurtling off the side of a cliff, only without the impending splat being quite so likely. Putting your trust in God for these things helps too, God has taught me so much about these things, even on the luas today I got a double-whammy of wisdom applied to exactly where it was needed from the scriptures. So things are going pretty well. Something within me knows I'm just making it up as I go along, and something within me knows that that's not half bad, really.

Something else that works pretty well in the shower is tea.

There's a guy in my class who swears by his 'shower tea'.

Just hold it away from the flow of water and you're sorted!

I suck at Halo. What you must not have noticed was the 23 other times I got slaughtered and the 20 minutes I spent walking around aimlessly!

Nope, I was on the other screen, so I noticed none of those things! :P
