My brother got back from his course at NIDA a few days ago, and my sister's back from her gymnastics camp, so my house is once again full of
love noise. My family are massive hoarders, and there's boxes full of stuff downstairs that we haven't looked at in years. We've been going through them lately and we're actually throwing things out, something which is usually unheard of in this house. I'm slowly, slowly doing the same for my room. Slowly. So don't come around, stick your head in the door and then complain that you still mostly can't see the floor. :P It's a hell of a long process.
I'm probably not helping my room to get any cleaner by continuing to go check out the Salvation Army and St. Vincent de Paul all the time. Vinnie's at Cardiff are actually having a sale (or were a few days ago, anyway) where all their clothes are $1, so I picked up a new pair of corduroy pants because my old ones have a hole in the bum. ^_^ We bought a stack of books too, they gave us 7 for $1.50. And I bought 'Oliver!' on vinyl for 50c, because it has Jon Pertwee in it. I quite like the good Doctor, and did you know he also did the voice of Spotty in Superted? o_O
I bought one more pair of jeans from the Salvos, and a giant stuffed mushroom, because it had a friendly face. I'd take a photo, but I unplugged my webcam so I could plug in the cable for my GBA Flash Linker, and I'm too lazy to change it back just for one picture.
I missed the Lucky this week and the big conglomerate birthday celebration, because I was generally in pain and a bad mood. I sat at Mav's house instead and watched all the crap reality TV I normally miss when I'm out. I seem to know a ton of people who have their birthdays in January, so happy birthday to the lot of you. It was my brother John's 9th birthday on the 11th too, so this weekend the house will be full of small boys. I think he's having a sleepover, too. I adore the kid, but his friends are a bunch of obnoxious pests and compulsive liars. So yeah, it's going to be fun. :P I got off easy on the present front this year; while cleaning my room I found my old gameboy, and mum suggested I give it to him. It's not like they're worth any money now anyway, and no-one else would want to buy it when the only games I've got are three Kirby games (hey, I really liked that little pink/white blob). Mav gave him Link's Awakening too, which he was impressed with since he was a big fan of Ocarina of Time. Bwahaha, I have moulded him in my image. ^_^
I should get to bed at a semi-reasonable time tonight, because I'm going to see Spy Kids 3D tomorrow. I didn't see the others in the series because they looked bad enough, and this one is reputedly the worst of the lot. But it's badness in 3D, which means it's worth seeing for the $4 it costs at Lake Cinema.
