August the 1st

Hello ScoFans!

Well, you heard from me every day for a week.. how about a whole month?

Daisy started a thing in her most recent post whereby she puts down her horoscope for the following day, and then comes back the next day and compares how her day lived up to it and mentioning the following days horoscope. It sounded like a lot of fun to me, so I jumped in and decided to play along.

The horoscopes we are using are provided by www.tarot.com

Let's see mine..

Scorpio Horoscopes

(Oct 23 - Nov 21)

Saturday, Aug 1st, 2009 -- You are feeling the stresses and strains of an emotional conflict that can almost reach an eruption point today. But expressions of jealousy and envy are probably based on unrealistic fears and insecurities, so don't give in to them too quickly. Shifting your thinking from a model based on scarcity to one built on abundance can loosen the tangled knot that is preventing you from taking the next big step in your life

The points I have highlighted are..

stresses and strains of an emotional conflict- Stresses and strains of emotional conflict? Me? The most emotional conflict I've had recently was having a disagreement with somebody I still care about. They're gone from my life now though, and I've accepted that, so I don't see it reaching an eruption point tomorrow.

unrealistic fears and insecurities- It sounds like me to base things on unrealistic fears and insecurities. I don't see how it relates to any strains of emotional conflict I've been experiencing though.

on scarcity to one built on abundance can loosen the tangled knot that- Again, it is like me to be worried about scarcity when life provides many opportunities. I've always held a close circle of friends, never letting many people in. Maybe tomorrow I'll learn that there are an abundance of good people out there that I should be friends with.

Well, let's see exactly what tomorrow provides for me. Play along if you feel like it, and head over to Daisy's blog to let her know how great her idea is.

Seven Sins in Seven Days: The Final Sin

Hello ScoFans!

Well, I made it. A post every day for a whole week. It was hard work, but here we are... the final sin. The sin ScoMan is most guilty of.

How well do you know your cardinal sins? Do you already know which sin it is? Have you looked it up on Wikipedia since yesterday to try and get a "sneak peek" of what's coming up? (it serves my ego great joy to think that people care enough about my blog to research upcoming posts.)

Speaking of serving my ego great joy, my ego is served not only by the thought of people researching my posts, but also by the thought of people remembering something I wrote MOTHS ago. The 24th of March this year to be exact.. when I had to list seven things I loved. Remember? Do you remember when I said.. these words...

7 - I love the new intern, Denise, on Scrubs. If she were a real person, I may just give up my asexual ways for her and her "girl balls". I fell in love with her when she said her patients disease was "kind of a buzzkill"
6 - I love pizza. I could eat that all day and never feel full.
5 - I love the sharemarket. It's interesting to watch what sets people into a panic, what brings back their confidence and the different reports from different companies and what they do to the share price.
4 - I love music. I remember having to play the guitar for a high school assignment and the teacher saying I have a gift for it, but I never took it up. And then we had some other test thing a few years later and the teacher said I had an ear for music and would find playing an instrument easy and wanted me in the band, but I never did it. I couldn't be bothered.
3 - As strange as it sounds, I love spinning into Matt. It's interesting to have a whole new thought process, a whole new outlook and to feel that sort of emotion to its fullest.
2 - I love seeing celebrities who have it all fuck up and walk away with nothing. I think of it as a case of "easy come, easy go"
1 - I love ... number one can wait. I will unveil it with my 100th blog. Something has happened I thought would never happen. I've fallen in love, and posting things I love felt like a good place to share that news with you. (And I know some of you considered me a tease for playing games and not sharing a picture so far.. I think you will probably be pissed with waiting 5 or so weeks for this as well)
So my seventh sin and my one true love. The two are interrelated. Let's explore that now.. through video...

In almost every list Pride (Latin, superbia), or hubris, is considered the original and most serious of the seven deadly sins, and indeed the ultimate source from which the others arise. It is identified as a desire to be more important or attractive than others, failing to acknowledge the good work of others, and excessive love of self (especially holding self out of proper position toward God). Dante's definition was "love of self perverted to hatred and contempt for one's neighbor."

Yes ScoFans, my deadliest sin is PRIDE.

For starters, when I told my brother I was going to do a video for YouTube of that song (which is "Head Over Heels" by Australian comedians Lano & Woodley.. and I never did do that video. The one above is the only copy) he said "That song should be your anthem. It's you word for word", so when even your own family is against you what hope do you have?

Not only that but all week- ALL WEEK -when I've been supposed to be telling you about the evil things I've done, I've been sure to mention to you all how awesome I am as well. In fact, I don't think a post goes by without me making sure you all realise how awesome I am.

I am incredibly stubborn. I will never admit I was wrong. I very rarely reach out to people because.. you guessed it, I'm awesome, and I think they should reach out to me. And even if they do, it's not very often I welcome them with open arms.

So there you have it, my seven sins in one week. Now you all know me a little better. You're aware of my shortcomings and my failings.

I also just took a quiz on Facebook.. "What job will you have in the afterlife?" and my result.. receptionist. Why am I tell you this? Because I think it caps off the theme of the week nicely..

You are both good and bad- stuck in between hell and heaven. You have an important job though, when someone dies you must decide where they go after life!

Forgive me ScoFans for I have sinned. I love me so very.. VERY much.

I guess there's no harm in dishing of my Facebook link now as well.. http://www.facebook.com/thisisScoMan

Seven Sins in Seven Days: Envy

Hello ScoFans!

After a few weird pictures the last few days I decided it was time to lighten the mood a bit for our good friend ENVY.
Let's get the business out of the way and run through Wikipedia's definition of my second last sin.
Like greed, Envy (Latin, invidia) may be characterized by an insatiable desire; they differ, however, for two main reasons. First, greed is largely associated with material goods, whereas envy may apply more generally. Second, those who commit the sin of envy resent that another person has something they perceive themselves as lacking, and wish the other person to be deprived of it. Dante defined this as "love of one's own good perverted to a desire to deprive other men of theirs."
So, as you can see, what the green eyed monster should actually be saying is "I want you to not have what you have".. but let's not get bogged down on technicalities.
I love to see celebrities or people who look like they have it all come crashing back to reality. For example, Australian actor Dieter Brummer who was the golden boy with his role as Shane Parish on the soap opera "Home and Away" from 1992-1996. At that time people were saying he could be the next big thing. At that time he seemed to have the world at his feet. At this time, while he still does get a few minor acting roles, he is now a window cleaner and was charged with drink driving 18 months ago.
He was an icon, and now he's a regular guy. There is not as much of a gap between the two as some like to think.
Being the outcast all the way through school, it is also satisfying to see that the kids who had it all then have nothing now. Not that I wanted what they had back then, I've said it before - I've always found living as an outcast to be the most comfortable way of life, but I did know that I wanted those to had it easy through school to struggle later in life (seeing the mighty fall and all that sort of thing)
And you know, there was a time when I envied other bloggers who had tons of followers or who always received lots of comments or who were excellent writers, but do you know what? I don't care about that any more.
Because I've found there's something more important to come from blogging than followers or comments. There are friendships to be made. And I wouldn't trade the friends I've made for all the followers or comments in the world.
Forgive me ScoFans for I have sinned. I was once envious of you, but now I love you too much to want to see your insides cut out while I snicker and ask "Where are your followers now?!"

Seven Sins in Seven Days: Wrath

Hello ScoFans!

Sin number five in the series is WRATH

Wrath (Latin, ira), also known as anger or "rage", may be described as inordinate and uncontrolled feelings of hatred and anger. These feelings can manifest as vehement denial of the truth, both to others and in the form of self-denial, impatience with the procedure of law, and the desire to seek revenge outside of the workings of the justice system (such as engaging in vigilantism) and generally wishing to do evil or harm to others.

Now we all know ScoMan is not the angry, hateful type, so I guess this post is over.


No, not it is not.
Because while ScoMan may be sugar and spice and all things nice, there is something evil that lurks beneath his surface. Something referred to (by ScoMan, who likes to shift the blame for his evil deeds) as "Matt"

Some of you may remember when I wanted to kill my neighbours for playing their loud music. Well that was wrong, and I realise that. But Matt doesn't.
And I'm not saying that Matt is a bad person. When he comes out to play I don't mind sitting back and enjoying the ride. It's not very often that I feel those sorts of raw emotions to that degree, so why not enjoy the experience? (so long as I don't hurt anyone I care about.) My life can be boring and mundane, so to see it through a new set of eyes for a for days every now and then gives things a well needed touch of variety.
But what makes ScoMan tick? Is there anything that makes him angry?
There is. One thing.
ScoMan. ScoMan makes ScoMan angry.
ScoMan doesn't like it when he makes a mistake. Mistakes are the same thing as failure and ScoMan does not fail. He sees himself as perfect, and in the workplace as the one everyone else turns to for help. If he can't get his own work right, how can he assist others with theirs?
So when he is less that satisfied with the results of the fruits of his labour, he does tend to get snappy with people. He knows they can see the frustration in his face, and he is sure they think he is angry with them. He doesn't correct them, he doesn't have time to find the words to apologise. The only words spinning around in his head are curse words reminding him of how pathetic he is. After all, he's been at this job long enough now, he should be able to get it right. Every time.
Variations on the truth (as in the truth has been varied to "absent") are also not uncommon when he knows he is wrong. When he knows he can't take that blow that day he will spin and weave the facts to suit the outcome. In his own head he justifies it to himself, which makes it that much easier to justify to someone else. After that, he doesn't think about it. He can't. Because if he does he won't be able to face himself in the mirror.

Forgive me ScoFans for I have sinned. Underneath it all and although I do my best to conceal it, my vision occasionally blurs red.

Seven Sins in Seven Days: Sloth

Hello ScoFans!
Another day has passed and another of the reasons I'm on the slowboat to hell is about to be shared.
Lust, Gluttony, Greed and now SLOTH (hence the cute little critter on the right. Don't you just feel like giving him a big warm hug?)
Now, today's post comes with a history lesson (courtesy of course, of the reliable fact checking folk at Wikipedia.)
Acedia (Latin, acedia) (from Greek ακηδία = neglect to take care of something - and in this case neglect to do whatever one should do in order to be saved) is apathetic listlessness; depression without joy. It is similar to melancoly, although acedia describes the behaviour, while melancholy suggests the emotion producing it. In early Christian thought, the lack of joy was regarded as a wilful refusal to enjoy the goodness of God and the world God created; by contrast, the apathy was regarded as a spiritual affliction that discouraged people from their religious work.
Why am I mentioning Acedia? Because...
Gradually, the focus came to be on the consequences of acedia, rather than the cause, and so, by the 17th century, the exact deadly sin referred to was believed to be the failure to utilize one's talents and gifts. In practice, it came to be closer to sloth (Latin, Socordia) than acedia. Even in Dante's time there were signs of this change; in his Purgatorio he had portrayed the penance for acedia as running continuously at top speed.
So, which of his many many talents is ScoMan not utilizing?
Well, for awhile there his gift for the written word was being wasted while he sat on the sidelines of the bloggosphere.
While he lives alone his ability to memorise the TV guide is next to pointless.
But the big one occurred during his time at high school (I know, a high school student wasting their talent. Who would have thought such a thing could ever happen?)
In the first term we were all taken into a room. A musical room. The "music room" if you will. We were sat down in a space that was far too small for our mighty number, and we had to perform a series of tasks to see if we were "musically gifted".
Being that it was hot and I was tired and didn't really care I just stumbled through the whole thing not really paying attention to what was going on and (as you may have guessed, otherwise this story wouldn't make much sense being mentioned in a post about talent) I got a letter in the mail a few days later telling me I'm awesome.
I've never doubted my awesomeness, but awesome at music surprised me.
But I ignored the letter. I hadn't paid attention, I wasn't interested, and the two most likely scenarios in my mind were that I had fluked the whole thing or that everyone got one of these letters because they were trying to fill their spots on the band (though in speaking to people it seems very few people got these letters)
My parents tried to talk me into it, and mum even drove me to the school on the night where people could sign up to learn an instrument, but I decided it was too hard and would distract me from things like television and video games.
The next year we had to seperate into groups and perform a song for the class. I ended up with a guitar in my hands while my group played the Corrs song "Runaway" (NOT our choice.)
Again, I didn't concern myself too much with learning how to play. I mean, I tried, for a few minutes, but it all seemed to complicated and I thought "I'll never get the hang of this" so I just strummed randomly at the notes and smiled my way through the song.
Parent teacher night rolled around and my teacher was asking whether I've ever thought of playing an instrument and telling me and my parents how I was a natural, I was just able to pick up the guitar and play the notes without immediately. The teacher recommended to my parents that they pressure me into playing something because "music can be a good distraction and stress reliever and blah blah blah" (of course she'd say that, she was the music teacher)
Mum said she'd tried, but I was stubborn.
We talked about it again on the car ride home, I told her I didn't have the time and I'd rather focus on my school work (she saw right through me and said I spent a lot more time focussing on television and video games than I did on school work) but still, I wasn't swayed.
I have mended my ways on the gluttony, and I'm wondering if it's time I righted this wrong as well (because I am, as you all know, a superhero) I got a nice tax refund this year, and while most of it has gone to new toys already (the Dexter soundtrack arrives tomorrow. Yay!) there's still a bit swinging that I could invest in a guitar and train myself to play.
Forgive me ScoFans for I have sinned. I decided Friends, Frasier and Seinfeld were more important than gracing the world with my wonderful musical gift.

Seven Sins in Seven Days: Greed

Hello ScoFans!

First was Lust, then came Gluttony and today, so that the title of this post makes sense, we hit GREED.

Greed (Latin, avaritia), also known as avarice or covetousness, is, like lust and gluttony, a sin of excess. However, greed (as seen by the church) is applied to the acquisition of wealth in particular. St. Thomas Aquinas wrote that greed was "a sin against God, just as all mortal sins, in as much as man condemns things eternal for the sake of temporal things."

I think Greed is probably the most common (and fascinating) of the sins in today's society. Watching how crazy people go when the lotto jackpot hits $50million and the global financial crisis we find ourselves in as a result of personal greed are just a couple of the exhibits I would call to a court room if ever asked to defend my stance.
But you're not here to read about the world at large, you're here to read about MMMEEEEEEE.
So to hell with the world and it's problems, let me tell you about my problems and another of the reasons I'm heading to hell.
For example, I love the stock market. The ups and downs. The fear pushing shares down, the greed forcing them back up. And the cash a few times a year by way of dividends for doing stuff all is quite nice too.
I also, like the lotto crazy people I mentioned earlier, can't help but try my chances when the lotto hits $50milllion. $40 million is not enough, especially if you have to share it. Two people getting $20 million each? No thank you! It's hardly worth it. Just give them my share and I'll try again next week.
And, as is the Gen Y thing to do, I have a lot of toys. A lot of CDs I've only listened to once or twice. DVDs I've never watched. Video games that only entertained me for a weekend. Oh, and a bobblehead (and the likelihood of more bobbleheads to come.).. (actually, that reminds me, I need to head over to eBay) I'm not as bad as some Gen Y's, but I'm certainly a lot worse than my parents who are a lot worse than my grandparents. As I said, greed is the way the world is going.
I'm sure I wouldn't be the only one who often fantasizes about having enough money and wealth to be comfortable forever without having to go to work again. But let's face it, after a few days of doing nothing we'd go mad because we've run out of things to do (or in my case all of you would probably go mad because I'd be harrassing you by posting all the time and writing random crap on Twitter all day)
Once again, forgive me ScoFans for I have sinned. I enjoy owning lots of things.

Seven Sins in Seven Days: Gluttony

Hello ScoFans!

The next sin on the menu is... oh, you already know it's GLUTTONY? Okay, I'll put the drum kit away then. No skin off my nose, you're the ones who are missing out on some bad ass once in a lifetime drum stylings.

Derived from the Latin gluttire, meaning to gulp down or swallow, gluttony (Latin, gula) is the over-indulgence and over-consumption of anything to the point of waste. In the Christian religions, it is considered a sin because of the excessive desire for food, or its withholding from the needy

Gluttony is something I have certainly been guilty of in the past, but I like to think not so much in the recent present.
There once was a time when I could eat a family size pizza in one sitting and go back for two bowls of icecream afterwards (I loved pizza. I could eat it all day and not feel full)
Not long after I moved out of home it was a bowl of ice cream and a bag of chips every night. There was lots of McDonald's and KFC (mostly KFC because there wasn't a McDonalds in this town at the time) and well, I was just enjoying all the foods that were (and I assume still are) bad for me.
Oh, and of course we can't forget the bacon and egg breakfasts on weekends. And if wasn't bacon and eggs it was pancakes. And if it wasn't pancakes it was because I was having bacon and eggs and pancakes and cooking up some brinner that night.
I'm surprised as I look back on that time that I only grew to 110kgs (which is approximately 242 pounds for anyone whose backwards country has not yet converted to the metric system =p)
But, over since my last birthday (and particularly over the last 6 months) I have been eating a lot less, and a lot healthier. Anyone who catches on on Twitter around dinner time knows these days there are a lot of Tuna Casseroles, chicken and veggies or just veggies on their own. If I have takeaway food it's usually Nando's, which is still (reasonably) healthy. And breakfast is a bowl of oats with a glass of orange juice.
So whilst I have mended my ways..
Forgive me ScoFans for I have sinned. There once was a time when, well as the song says "I've had enough, now I want my share". Whose share had I had? I don't know. But that didn't stop me wanting my share even though I was no longer hungry.

Seven Sins in Seven Days: Lust

Before starting I want to send out a huge thank you to ChinkyMel. She nominated myself and several other lucky people for the "Influential Blogs for 2009" If you'd like to nominate someone (as I will be doing before the 2nd of August) then go to the site and read how it's done.

Hello ScoFans!

Well, with 100% of the vote you decided you'd like for me to spend the next seven days blogging about sins. I thought I might as well start it off with one of the boring ones, that being (as if the title hasn't given it away already) LUST.

Lust or lechery, is usually thought of as excessive thoughts or desires of a sexual nature. Dante's criterion was excessive love of others, which therefore rendered love and devotion to God as secondary.

As most of you know "excessive thoughts or desires of a sexual nature" from ScoMan is about as likely as "excessive thoughts or desires of advanced quantam physics" from a pro-footballer, so in order to accommodate.. well.. me.. I'm going to use the second half of that definition. Sort of. The first part may also apply. Do you know what? You'll see, I'll just keep going.

Okay, so, as I am a socially and emotionally awkward hermit, most of my love is reserved for fictional characters. Real people have a tendancy to let me down (none of you have, and I do love you all.. but this isn't about you) so instead I project my feelings towards people whose world I can visit simply by picking up a book or throwing on a DVD. Twisted? Sick? Yes. I know. But it's who I am and I'm happy.

So, which characters have I loved excessively, to the point where my love of and devotion god would be secondary? Which characters have I perhaps even sexually desired? (Or at least at times I just wanted to give them big hugs) Well, stop being impatient and asking me all these questions and I'll tell you.

Lately it has been the Denise, the Scrubs Intern.

She has a winning smile, much like Vault Boy in my picture. She is cold. She is smart. She is happy to do her own thing and if people don't like her for it then that doesn't bother her.

And she makes me laugh, which is very important.

If you'd like to see more of Denise, her highlight reel is here.

But I think the one fictional girl who has truly captured my heart is Georgia Lass from the short lived TV series "Dead Like Me"

Okay so maybe she's dead and you know, whatever, but she is still awesome. Again, cold, does her own thing and a little bit odd.

Oh, and she makes me laugh too.

Of course with her there is the distinct possibility I'll end up her bitch.

Supernatural fans can also check out this cool crossover fan-vid.

The other thing about both of these girls is that they are both as emotionally crippled as I am.

Forgive me ScoFans for I have sinned. I love (or am obsessed with) emotionally crippled fictional characters.

Things other people said

Hello ScoFans!

I just want to start this post by congratulating James Courtney in his race win today (pictured on the right) He was fast yesterday, qualified at the front and then his car had a failure. He hasn't won since moving to Dick Johnson racing and they had big plans yesterday but unfortunately they didn't eventuate. Today, everything came together and it made up for the pain the team and their fans felt yesterday. It's the first win for the team in about a year, so it was nice.

Why did I use that picture if he's a racing car driver? Because most of my readers are female, and they don't care about my motor sport ramblings, so I gave them something to look at (at least I think he's an attractive guy). And if they do care about motor sport, well then it's a nice bonus for them.

Oh, and yes, he is married.

Anyway, that race win capped off what was a wonderful weekend. My Tweetledees might have seen on Friday I was looking forward to seeing my niece AJ over the weekend and I had a fantastic time with her. She's growing all the time and getting smarter and learning new things.

And she loves her uncle. Because he's a softy who can't say no to her.

When I was leaving today dad was holding on to her and she reached out to me and mum said "I think she wants a kiss goodbye" so I walked back to kiss her and she let go of dad and threw her arms around my neck and started screaming when I tried to give her back to dad. It was heartbreaking, but I'll see her again soon. She's just too young to understand that.

On to today's post.

Today I'm going to share some of the quotes I was going to share just before the 100th post when you were all voting. Do you miss voting? Well, if so, you'll see you have an opportunity to do it again. And it's special, because next week I'm doing seven posts in seven days. I will only do this ONCE, so the post that loses the vote will disappear forever.

Here come the quotes..

"In this dirty-minded world, she thought, you are either some body's wife or some body's whore — or fast on your way to becoming one or the other. If you don't fit either category, then everyone tries to make you think there is something wrong with you. But, she thought, there is nothing wrong with me."
The World According to Garp - John Irving

"When I was very young once I saw a variety act on TV. A man put a bunch of plates on the end of a series of supple rods, and kept them in the air by whipping the rods to spin the plates. And if he slowed down or turned his back even for a moment, one of the plates would wobble and then crash to the ground, followed by all the others in series.

That's a terrific metaphor for life, isn't it? We're all trying to keep our plates spinning in the air, and once you get them up there you can't take your eyes off them and you have to keep chugging along without rest. Except that in life, somebody keeps adding more plates, hiding the rods and changing the law of graving when you're not looking. And so every time you think you have all your plates spinning nicely, suddenly you hear a hideous clattering crash behind you and a whole row of plates you didn't even know you had begins to hit the ground"
Dexter in the Dark- Jeff Lindsay

"We've had a quick car all weekend and we were just getting away from the field and we dropped to seven cylinders and we were still putting down fast times but when we dropped to six cylinders on the second lap that was it. But I guess that's the sport we're in, it's cruel and that's what makes it entertaining so I hope the people at home have at least been entertained by all this"
James Courtney

I'm taking a few moments to speak on behalf of our fallen adversary...Forgive me Space Goblin, if it were not for the novice level setting and the 10 cups of coffee I had earlier today you might have bested me this day in the Marsh of Gothrick. We're not that different, you and I, despite your arm mounted canon and insatiable taste for human flesh... — Janitor
"You realize that while you're talking his alien friends are shooting you in the face, right?" — Turk
"Well that is just rude." - Janitor

Scrubs- My Hard Labor (series 7 episode 2)

And even yours truly has been quoted on a Facebook friends site..

"I got not annoying. Which is apparently annoying in itself. So while I wasn't annoying, my non annoyingness became annoying"
Scotty (I've never lol'd so much in my life)

Finally, I have a few things from some of my blogging buddies to mention (and some of them are favours to ask of my readers).

First, if you could go here and download Ndeesaster's song "Got The Feeling" I know it would mean a lot to her. I'm not a huge hip hop fan, I don't mind a little bit occasionally, but I do love her stuff. And even if you don't like hip hop, just download it, if not for her then for me *flutters eyes and smiles*

Next, you can go to Sarahaha's blog at the moment and enter her giveaway for a beautiful clutch. I don't think it would go with anything I own, but I'm sure it would go lovely in one of my lovely female readers collections.

Thirdly, while I did mention the wisdom that got me to return to blogging, I forgot to mention the petition touchingjoy organised to entice me to come back. That was very sweet of her. The lengths she went to to get some of those names are extraordinary.

Fourthly, the girl in the stiletto left me a comment last week that I think warrants special mention. "i'm clinging tightly to your nasal hair now" made me laugh exceptionally hard.

And last last lastly to miss rambles and PinkNic, both of whom accused me of being a dirty liar when I said I was leaving the bloggosphere forever.. I sure showed you.

Oh, and to the follower who left me this week, enjoy your lamp post.

Until next time.

Reattaching my nose

"One last thing before I quit
I never wanted any more than I could fit
Into my head
I still remember every single word you said
And all the shit
That somehow came along with it
Still there's one thing that comforts me
Since I was always caged and now I'm free"
Foo Fighters- Monkey Wrench

Hello ScoFans!

Did you miss me? I missed all of you.

I've decided it was time to make a return to the world of blogging. Why? Well, because Daisy is wise, that's why. I was telling her how much I missed blogging and she pointed out to me that I should not cut off my nose to spite my face. This wasn't supposed to be about punishing me, and so I am ending my suffering.

But what about your punishment? Well, the way I figure it, you've all been punished.

Those of you that loved me will have felt bad I was gone.

Those of you who were relieved I left will be sad to see me return.

Those of you who stopped following me can go and fuck a lampost.

And I'm not going to comment on any blogs that occurred between when I wrote the last one, and the writing of this one, but I will be commenting again going forwards.

Some things have changed around here. There is a new song for starters. I owe that all to Facebook and it's "Which is the theme song of your life?" quiz.

ScoMan took the What is the theme song of ur life??? quiz and the result is "Learn To Fly" by Foo Fighters

The Lost-Soul-Trying-To-Find-My-Way type. You have been on a path, but don't know where you're going, or where you want to go. "And I'm looking to the sky to save me Looking for a sign of life Looking for something to help me burn out bright" Only you can find the way to go.. so nows the time to find it in your heart what you want and learn to fly without any assistance!

I read that and thought "Yeah, that sounds about right. And it's an awesome song, and right now I do think I need a devil to help me get things right" and not only is it the song on my blog, but my ringtone as well. Foo Fighters are taking over, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

And while we're speaking of music, for those of you who are interested on which songs are and aren't on my iPod (it's actually changed since way back then) here we go..

Cole Porter- Anything Goes
Not on the iPod. It's an awesome song, I just haven't got around to downloading it.

Godsmack- I Stand Alone
Another one not on the iPod. It usually is, but during that brief period it wasn't. Thrown in as a red herring.

Waterproof Blonde- Just Close Your Eyes
On the iPod. One of my favourite songs ever.

Men At Work- Land Down Under
Not on the iPod. Just threw it in to see if people would go "You're Australian, of course you love that song"

Eminem- Lose Yourself
Not on the iPod. It was the only song on my iPod for about three weeks so I could get the lip syncing right. With all the walking I do that's over 20 hours of listening to it in a three weeke period. I needed a break.

Frank Sinatra- My Way
On the iPod. I do everything My Way.

Babylon Zoo- Spaceman
On the iPod. I love this song. I think I could listen to this for 20 hours in a three week period and not get sick of it. Actually, I've probably done that in the past.

Kermit the Frog- Rainbow Connection
On the iPod.

Creed- With Arms Wide Open
Not on the iPod. But I do love this literal version (which I found thanks to miss rambles)

I also have another result from a Facebook quiz I would like to share with any of you that are left.

ScoMan completed the quiz "What drug are you most like?" with the result Acid.

You are Acid. Definitely very conventional and very predictable- you probably own a minivan and beige slacks. Just playing, you weren't expecting that now, were you? Or maybe you were... you never know with someone like you. You're vibrant, creative and well, insane. Your perception of reality differs from everyone else. Your relationship with the world is very love/hate. Not everyone understands you, which isn't surprising because you don't even always understand yourself. But there are times were you've figured

I guess that's all for this week. The important thing to know is I'm back. I'll be blogging on a weekly schedule, and I'll start reading your posts (any that are posted after this one) again tomorrow night.

Oh.. did I forget a song earlier?

Anastacia- Left Outside Alone
On the iPod. I know some of you will be disgusted with that, but the line "Living in a fairytale without meaning" really speaks to me. I think it sums up my life pretty well.

I'm happy. I've never had to struggle or work to hard for anything, stuff just seems to fall at my feet. That's the fairytale..

..but then I've never accomplished anything. I've never made a lasting mark in anyones life. I'm mediocre at my job, and I am by no means dedicated to it. I've never found love. I've never been loved. After 100.96 posts..

.. I'm still just a name in your recollection..
