The Random Musings of an Attention-Seeking Author: 14 July 2012

So I’m sitting all by my lonesome at work, while everyone else has gone home.

I’m lazily twirling around in a chair, spouting nonsensical sound effects and exclamations as I dream of adventurous times…..and cake. I’m counting down the mere hours / minutes / seconds till my release and cannot wait until I can race out that door and into the loving arms of my iMac, wishing, wondering, longing for a moment of clarity to enter my head and grant me an epiphany. The best I came up with is, “Walnuts are not the male reproductive organs of walls.”

Live! LLLIIIIIIVVVVEEE!!!!!

Just thought I would revive an oldie of mine, where I would chat inanely about my week, and at the same time, write down any random thought of mine that popped into my head. POP!

The Random Musings of an Attention-Seeking Author – 08/03/2010 to 14/03/10

I do apologise for not writing much…but unfortunately, there IS nothing to write about. Life has been unbelievably routine, and amidst the rush of lectures and homework, the dullness left is pure drudgery. However, there HAS been some interesting bits and pieces of random events that have provided some relief:

  1. I have been slightly sick the past few days. Actually, more than slightly – I’m starting to think I could be one of the patients in an episode of HOUSE M.D. Now, you guys might think that being sick is all doom and gloom – I can’t get much rest, I cough my lungs out, and I’m behind on my schoolwork. (The latter is also partly due to procrastination, but let’s not dwell on stuff that is actually my fault). However, being sick has ONE silver lining: I don’t have to exercise. Small price to pay, hmm?
  2. I met a guy at church today who resembles the actor Joshua Jackson, who plays Peter Bishop in FRINGE. Not kidding. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a picture of him, but here’s a picture of Joshua Jackson:

    Now, imagine him a little fatter, and with more hair…..he could be an alternate version of Joshua Jackson / Peter Bishop! Which kinda ties in well with FRINGE’s whole “alternate universe” theory……

  3. As part of my Critical Legal Thinking course, I had to learn about “faulty arguments”. One of them was the argument of Correlation and Causation, where two statements appear to correlate, but may not actually do so. The example I read was hilarious:
      • An overall decrease in the number of pirates over the last century corresponds with an increase in global warming over the same time period.
      • Therefore, global warming is caused by a lack of pirates.

    Huh? Huh? You can’t make this stuff up. And people say lawyers have no sense of humour…

  4. Now, if you have read the previous article about the Brisbane Bus Service, you would have noticed that I said that I wore shorts to uni. That was a truly rare occasion, as I prefer jeans….and I look waaaay better in them. However, a few days ago, a school bus from a girl’s school rolled up to uni. The one day I dressed down, a busload of schoolgirls came trucking into the campus. I just can’t win.

Alright guys, that’s it from me. I have to try to get some work done tonight….or just procrastinate again. I mean, at least that’s better than seeing me in shorts, right?

  1. Lecture @ uni today. Ended early, which was good…but it was raining when we came out. Ugh.
  2. I’m looking for a book called “The Law of Torts” by Balkin and Davis (4th Edition). Does anyone have it and can give / sell to me? I will love you forever.
  3. The weather has been rather odd lately, and it seems to have a vendetta against me. Boiling hot sun, and then rain, does not help when you are wearing jeans.
  4. Homework….nah, I’ll do it later….
  5. Remember that the “World’s Worst” contest is now on! Check it out here.

That’s it from me. Take it away, boys!

Well, it’s raining again….the dark, dreary downpour that never seems to let up, eh? Nothing really much TO do today….so this, I write.

  1. I’m currently penning a story about a guy from my school – it’s part of a project I took on to pass the time. I challenged myself to write a one-page story for every single person in my Grade….and after the better part of a year, I have about 9 left to do. Which says less about the hugeness of the task and more about my short attention span.
  2. Watched the Manchester United vs. Aston Villa football match – the Carling Cup Final. MU fought on to a well-deserved 2-1 victory….and I screamed in joy like a little girl.
  3. Preparation for my first year of Uni (Law at UQ)….and I’m feeling a little nervous. Any tips, guys?

Hopefully something new happens later. Check back here for further updates!

Hmm hmm hmm….another slow day….

  1. Posted the next part of “Double Cross – An Avatar Fan Fiction” up here on the blog…if you want to see it, click the link: Double Cross – An Avatar: The Last Airbender Fan Fiction (Prologue: Part 2)
  2. More “Whose Line is it Anyway?”. Seriously, they need to get it back on the air. And soon.
  3. Watched an old episode of “HOUSE M.D.”. Seriously, my brother has been telling me that Phil Brown (manager of soccer club Hull City) looks like Hugh Laurie (actor in HOUSE). I’ve got two snapshots right here:

Here’s one of Phil Brown:

And here’s one of Hugh Laurie:

Same? Different? It’s your call. Over to you guys now!

The Random Musings of an Attention-Seeking Author – 22/02/2010

Just some random observations and events throughout my day….

  1. “Whose Line is it Anyway?” still remains one of the greatest comedy improv shows ever created. Get it back on the air!!
  2. The preparation to make fried rice for lunch is extremely annoying. Especially the dicing of vegetables and meat – very tough!
  3. My brother: “You cut the meat very slow!” Me: “I’m always slow!…….Wait, let me rephrase that…”
  4. Street Court is a great legal show, where people’s small claims cases are actually decided on location, and not in a court room. It’s hosted by the always interesting “Judge Mazz”….who’s not actually a judge, but an attorney. Odd, huh?
  5. I did 6 chin-ups today….and I feel exhilarated and exhausted simultaneously now.
  6. Doodle Jump (for iPhone) is an extremely addictive game. Trust me.

More random musings later. Remember to subscribe to this blog, or leave a comment!
