EESPECK! Answering a comment!
Yes, that’s a real laptop. The best laptop in the world on top of that! Nah! Seriously! It’s got the biggest hard drive of a laptop, the best graphics of a laptop (even better than my Super Computer, which isn’t really a super computer, it’s just a super, computer) and a FREE T-SHIRT! WOOOO!
Ya, it’s real. I just went into saying it can run any PC game in the world. And with only… £1,400 to save up, it’ll be mine in no time! Well, maybe a few months if I get my ass into gear and get a job, but working at Sainsbury’s or Tesco’s won’t be worth it. Stacking bread on shelves for 6 months for the best laptop in the world? *shudder* I’d rather work in Game. Or Gamestation, whichever pays more and looks better and has not as much work to do.
And now, I’ve just realised. Halo 3, the most awaited game of the decade is coming out soon. In September. And I’ll be working in September! OH CRAP! The game stores are gonna be overflowing, and I MIGHT BE THERE! Not waiting in the queue, but TRYING TO GET RID OF IT!
Let’s just hope it’s not out on a Saturday. And if it is, let’s hope I get some sort of payrise afterwards. Like another £2 an hour or something. That’s help.
Because I’m a sad person, and I’m obsessed about owning an Alienware Laptop… sorry, I mean, the ALMIGHTY LORD Alienware Laptop, I did some calculations. If I get paid just above the minimum wage (well, 70p more an hour, so it’d be £4) and work once a week on Saturdays for about 7 hours, then I’ll get £28 a week. Plus EMA, that’s £48 a week. So that’s £192 a month. After 2 months I’ll be about halfway, and then I get birthday money, which I guess will be around £50, like every year, so that’s… about £850. Two months more and I’ll have about £1,250. Christmas money will come to about £50, £1,300, then I "Pass Go" as I like to call it, and get £250 for some reason every January. That’s £1,550. In February I’ll have £1,750, which is just about enough. And all that is dependant on if I don’t spend ANYTHING. So… in 6 months, (that is if you can bring laptops into school, and if I dare to bring my Alienware Laptop in) you may see the best laptop in the world at 6th form! And a lot of gamers, geeks, and people called Ped, Neb, Phil and John will go green in the face with envy, heh heh. Especially Neb and Ped, as they both want one.
But I’d better stop gloating about that right now. As I don’t know if I can even GET a job ANYWHERE (especially if they don’t have the word "supermarket" in their name) yet. And I may get people gloating in my face if they get a new… um… what piece of kit is cooler than an Alienware Laptop? Apart from 360’s and PS3’s. Nah, they’re not that cool. Unless you’ve got a custom case for your 360 with a giant green glowing X in the side of it
Nah, if someone goes "Look Carl! I have a new iPod Invisible!" or "Carl, I just got Final Fantasy 962!" or "Hey, Carl, I got the new PS22632!" then I won’t really be bothered. Hah, I won’t be surprised if the PS4’s actually a random number that makes no sense. After all, the Xbox 360 is just a random number that came out of nowhere! WHY is it called an Xbox, anyway?! It’s not in the shape of an X, but it is a box! You could have called it the Cuboid or the Box! Or the… eh, forget it.
Alienware = TOO COOL.
Anyhoo. A question for people that won’t read this blog!
Ant, how many words are in your story now? And no, don’t go adding in "blah blah blah blah" at the end so you can just get some more words. And Em, how about you? If you’re still making yours, that is. Because I go on periodic thingies (NO, THAT’S NOT WHAT I MEANT! PERIODIC! NOT PERIOD-IC!) of on and off… Oh crap, this is starting to sound really wrong. Okay, lemme start again.
Because I go on periodic "can’t be assed" and "can be assed" statuses to write mine. Recently I "can be assed". And checking the word count, I’m at 35,000 words. Wait, 35,000? Am I reading that right… just a sec.
HOLY CRAP! I’ve never written that much in my life on one thing before! And on such a lost pointless cause?! I’m crazy!
(Just figured, it’s a Novelette! W00tah! It needs 60,000 to be a novel, and 200,000 to be an epic, according to Wikipedia. Wait, wasn’t "Of Mice And Men" a novel? Nah, that wasn’t 60,000 words. They’re lying. Fools.)
Oh ya, it’s a pointless cause. It’s a very disturbing story, much like every other one in the world right now. Well, nearly. Compared to Ant’s mine could look like The Tweenies.
Knowing Ant’s retarded… umm, I mean… wait… yeah, I got it. Retarded mind.
And of course, Em’s might make ANT’S look like The Tweenies! Pushing mine down to the Teletubbies status! Or that other one… whatchamacallit… ya, Boobah! Damn, I hate that show.
Oh, wait. Now that you look at the first 3 pages of mine, which is just an intro to the prologue (introprologue?) and what everything is and why I did it and stuff, that’s probably at least 800 words alone, and at least 200 at the end as notes as to WHAT THE HELL is going on with each of the characters as I’m writing it, they probably won’t count in the final total, so now I’m down to a piddly 34,000 words.
Have you beat 34,000? Congratulations, you’ve beaten me and taken the "Finger Cramp" award!
Have you beat 34,000 AND still reckon your story’s crappy? CONGRATS! You’ve taken the "Finger CRAP" award from me!
Have you got an Alienware Laptop! Congrats, you’ve won a prize! Just send your laptop to Oxleasowes Hay Barn and get your free cheque for a million gazillion pounds*!

Oh, and another thing, one of my character names I really like, and especially how I got it. I banged my head against the wall one night, and a voice inside my head… "Sintarka!" Or it might have been the aftershock. But now I like it! I’m thinking of it to be my nickname or something. Just shorten it down to "Sin" and it’s got a nice ring to it! Even though I don’t do any sins much… MUCH… Okay, you got me.
What’s it mean, I hear you ask? Well let me tell you. I HAVE NO IDEA! It’s meant to mean Whirlwind in the story. Now you’re wondering what freaky dude calls himself "Whirlwind". Heh, you’re a freaky dude yourself, if you haven’t figured out who or WHAT the main character is! Well, okay. ALL of the characters.
Don’t lose sleep over it, dude. I’ll decide when to tell you.
Alrighty, I guess that’s enough for one blog entry. Oh, and yes, Em, you’re in GA:X! Ped is also in GA:X! So am I! Hopefully someone else will join too, so they can test it out and help me out with bugs ans stuff!
And one more thing. I got a video of me + Ped playing Guitar Hero 2! The best video of us playing it yet! Because we start to sing with NUMBERS! And we start laughing and putting each other off ans stuff! Might upload it to YouTube, if I can be arsed or if I think it’s good enough. Because with the ratings and comments and stuff from PPG, I take it that the sad YouTube community don’t have the same sense of humour as me + Ped!
Okay, I’m going now! No, really! No, I won’t play pattycake with you!!
