Custard Creams Are The Best Ice Breaker

Posted by The Dandy Automaton , Apr 27 2012 · 54 views

Guess who finally finished The Hunger Games. Here's a hint: It's me! ...God, I hate being a slow reader.

It's weird how I always considered a positive social experience to be a success. I mean, today, I finished my day in a good mood, because I actually had a good laugh with my group in English Language. Bearing in mind this is the class I'd pretty much given up on trying to integrate with, due to on several times accidentally having them all think I'm completely insane. My group and I were mostly in hysterics when we became curious as to the origin of the custard cream. A quick search on the internet and we found this gem:

The Custard Cream was invented by accident in 1575 when Russian woodsman Vladimir Nabkotov returned home from work and was the victim of an elaborate practical joke by his second daughter, Antonina. It was especially unfortunate that she died in the ensuing fracas before Vladimir had actually tried the biscuits, and discovered to them to be really quite lovely. He spent the rest of his life wracked with guilt at her death, but he lived long enough to reverse-engineer the recipe, and ultimately published his findings to an enamoured 16th Century Russia. Custard creams have been with us ever since, and thank the good Lord for that !



We then spent a while pondering just what kind of prank could have ended with such tragic and delicious results.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to try and stop myself from buying more shirts with dragons and wolves on. I'm doubtful this will be successful.

You Will Be Perfect

I have a new favourite song. The Friendly Faith Plate from the Portal 2 soundtrack. Why had I not hunted this album down before now?

My mind's going mental again. I'm having a lot of difficulty just sitting down and relaxing. It's just hurrying around, not paying attention to a single thing I'm doing. I've tried distracting myself with reading, gaming, writing and the internet and it still doesn't want to sit still. What do you want from me, brain? What do you want? ._.

Oh, and I'd like to thank my English Literature teacher who decided she didn't even want to take in that essay I finished yesterday. She just wanted to know I'd done it...No marking or anything. So if I'm going wrong somewhere, it's good luck and so long to me.

Potatos Lament

Posted by The Dandy Automaton , Apr 25 2012 · 67 views

One of the most hauntingly beautiful songs I've ever come across...And I don't even remember it in the game...

(Yeah, that is meant to say PotatOS. But of course, title's don't work like that. :P)

Must. Defeat. Dragons.

Ugh, I've got Skyrim cravings. I haven't played that in so long. I would hunt down my wireless mouse and game away, but I've got two things preventing me.

A: I've got a page-long essay on Frankenstein due in tomorrow.
B: My broadband allows 40gb of internet usage a month free, which I have to share with my parents. A while ago I decided to update my game with the high-res textures, not realising that's a 4gb download. I still haven't gotten around to it.

Oh, Arlecks the Argonian...I'll see you soon, perhaps...

Quote Of The Day #1

Posted by The Dandy Automaton , Apr 24 2012 · 48 views

"When I play Wii, I don't even wrap the safety bit around my wrist...Someone will die."

Y'see, it's reasons like that why it's worth staying awake into the late hours of the night. That and it makes trance so much more worth listening to.
