This last week has been crazily DotA filled. I think I've played close on 15 games, an average of 2 per day. Crazy shit! I am getting to learn the recipes and builds a lot better tho, and I'm also teaching Al and Claire how to play. Well, last night Lucas was tutoring her, and it was proving to be a slightly frustrating experience ;) We pulled through in the end tho, so all good. Perhaps we should start upgrading the AI to Insane (we've been playing on Normal). I am really enjoying Shadelzare Silkwood, the Vengeful Spirit. Nether Swap + Magic Missile is fantastic ^_^

The car is still all good, if a little expensive. Really, nothing is gonna compare to an R128 monthly train ticket, but the convenience is totally worth it.

Colleen's coming down this weekend, which should be cool =) It'll be good to see her again ^_^

And that's it for the post. Nothing else interesting has been happening.

Cool or crap?

Firstly, my apologies to anyone who heard via the grapevine, or just have not heard at all, but Candice and I broke up about... oh, two and a half weeks ago. I just... wasn't really up to talking about it.

In happier news, I have a car to call my very own ^_^ A 1988 Toyota Corolla 1.6GL automatic. Driving an automatic is perhaps the laziest thing I have ever done in my life, and that should tell you something. I feel that it's roughly equivalent to phoning your mom from your cellphone to come home and pass you the TV remote cos you can't quiiiiite reach it. Yeah, something like that. Anyway, it's fantastic being free =)

Details promise to generate too long a post for my current posting stamina, so here are the highlight:
  • Richard's car was broken into while I was borrowing it. It turned out as an expensive fix due to complications
  • Power has been fucking us around at work. Getting Richard's car fixed and my new automobile sorted out has been fucking me around even more than others
  • I was sick for the last two days. Crap, cos I was feeling like shit. Cool, cos I got to play Soul Calibur 3 all day (when I wasn't sleeping)
So, as you can see, it's been a pretty damn mixed bag the last two and a half weeks. I'm still pondering whether it's been more crap than cool, or vice versa. I'll let you know when I decide.
