Puppies and Books

Bonjourno Deano

Yeah, I just watched the Fosters advert. I like those adverts...

Anyway, I forgot to mention yesterday, that like two days after we got back from Greece we got a puppy.

Cute no?
He's like twice the size he was when we first looked at him, such a little fattie right now. To be honest that picture doesn't give you a real picture, he a complete terror, bites anything he can get his teeth into. My arms are covered in scratches and bite marks at the moment. He's only just started sleeping through the night which is quite a relief. 

Wow, that made me sound like such a parent.

Anyway, I also had quite a bookish sort of day. It started off me going down to the library to get loads of books for my History coursework on Italy. The library wasn't the most helpful thing so I ended up just getting any book that mentioned Italy in their index. Ended up with four books which seemed pretty unhelpful. I think I may have to either venture into the big library in Reading, that or asking my mums friend to get me some books from the University library.

Oh, and then the Song of Ice and Fire box-set I ordered a couple of days ago arrived. I bloody love these books. I'm already nearly 100 pages into the second book (I've already read the first book before I ordered the box-set).

Anyway, I'm off to go and get back into mah books now.

I'm Baaaaack!!!!

Hey there strangers, haven't seen you in forever. Yeah, wow it's actually been a whole month. Sorry about that, I got home from holidays two weeks ago and just completely forgot about you. But yeah, I thought I'd fill you in on what I've been up to and stuff.

As I mentioned before I left, I buggered off to Greece for two weeks where upon arrival I discovered how freaking hot everything there is. We arrived at like 10 at night and it was still 28*C. The holiday didn't get off to the best start seeing as I neglected to put any sun cream on my shoulders on the first day and they just burned up. Seriously, it was the worst sun burn I've ever seen, it blistered and pussed and burst and then peeled before leaving my shoulder all pale and weird looking. Seriously it was gross. That sort of meant I had to spend the rest of the first week sat in the shade pointing at the sun and shouting "WHAT THE BLOODY HELL WAS THAT?!". Didn't really stop me from enjoying myself though, I went swimming with the fishes (in the literal sense, not the mafia sense), had a rummage around the castle of the Knights Templar, cruised around the Aegean on a yacht, climbed into an active volcano and even had time enough for a little bit of shopping. Bloody brilliant holiday all in all and now I'm now going to bombard you with pictures of stuff.

The is the Hippocrates Tree which, as the name suggests, was planted by Hippocrates and was where he taught medicine. I kinda now have a leaf framed on my wall now.

This was some random ruins in the middle of Kos Town. I'm not sure what used to be there but the town was full of random ruins just strewn around the town.

As you can probably tell, theses are fish and they were in the sea...

This is me and my brother in the volcano *

This is said volcano from above. Isn't it awesome?

I'M ON A BOAT!!!!!

Yeah how cool is this places nickname?

And this is some shield I found in the Castle, it looks really cool.

Anyway, I'm sure you're fed up of hearing about somebody else's holiday so I'll leave you be for now.

Good Night xxx

Potter and Puppies

Hey, haven't seen you guys in a while.

Hows the missus? and the kids?

Good to hear.

Anyway, I was out last night at the cinema watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Oh My God! It was absolutely bloody brilliant, if you haven't already seen it then you should now. It was one of those films that are so good when it ended the whole cinema broke out into a round of applause. In fact, we broke into a round of applause whenever anything awesome happened in the film. Gah, I loved it so much, all the secondary characters became absolutely amazing, mainly Professor McGonagal and Neville Longbottom, who by the way now looks like this:

Yeah, I couldn't believe it was him either.

Anyway, today was equally epic. I started off going down to Staines to look at puppies and then we ended up putting a deposit down on one. I mean, how could we not? Look how cute he is.

And his name shall be Diggory Dumbledog Davison. We get to pick him up in two weeks once he's old enough to leave his mum and we're back from holiday.

Then after that I ended up waitering for a website which was loads of work but I made sixty quid off of it so it wasn't all bad. Now I'm going to sleep for ages.

I'm also going to take a little break from blogging because I'm going on holiday in a few days and I don't really have the time for it at the moment.

Anyway, Good Night xxx

Trock On!

Yeah been busy lately. Lots of personal statements and school tours, generally been too tired for blogging. Anyway, I'm pretty much sorted now so ONWARDS AND UPWARDS!!!!!!

Basically on Monday I spent all evening in the office with my dad writing my personal statement for my Uni applications. I'm actually quite pleased with it but it still needs a bit more tweaking and jiggery pokery before it's good enough to submit. So yeah, that took a good couple of hours to finish and by that point my brain was pretty fried and really didn't work.

Then yesterday I had volunteered to give tours of my school to parents of kids that are coming here next year. It wasn't too bad, I've given enough tours of the school by now for it not to be that big of a deal, it just took ages and people kept wandering off and tagging along to my tour. It wasn't a problem, just difficult trying to keep track of whos who and where they should be when but all done now so t'sall good now.

And now to today. It's been alright I suppose, nothing particularly interesting, although I did spend the whole of our assembly listening to Chameleon Circuit's new album, Still Got Les. It's awesome, I got the download last night and at first I wasn't a big fan but it's grown on me a lot. It's odd, although it's fundamentally a Trock (timelord-rock) it is like proper music, y'know stuff that could pass for like proper music and stuff. So yeah, go and check it out somewhere, it's all over the internet.

Good Night * disappears in a puff of smoke*

Holister and Stuff

Appologise for no post yesterday, I was out a evening at TOM'S summer party, twas pretty damn epic, saw some good friends and made some new ones and what's more woke up completely hangover free. SUCCESS!

Before the party I'd spent most of the day in Southampton looking at the Uni, it was really sweet, the life sciences department was pretty much brand spanking new and looked so modern and cool. The uni was actually a lot better than I thought it would be and it's gone way up in my regards. The town itself aint half bad either. We had a wander around the big shopping center there and I got a load of clothes bought for me for the holidays. So I was pretty chuffed about that. Even managed to blag a Holister t-shirt. Holister is an odd shop. From the outside there was no signage or anything denoting what shop it was, just a tiled porch type bit. It was a bit odd. It was also really really dark in there, almost irritatingly so. Considering it's a clothing store, they're mannequins displayed a sever lack of clothes. I didn't get the logic behind that but perhaps that's just me...

Right, back to today. It hasn't really consisted of much, just chilling really. Also catching up on all the photos from last night which is always fun. I may even have to print some off and add them to my massive collage frame thingy. It'll be nice to have some photos that aren't all take in the dark.

Right, I'll see you all later then.

Hair Cut!

Yeah, I'm being nerdy again. I ordered some genome magnets a few months ago and they've finally arrived. Hence now I'm sat gene sequencing them by following the instructions they came with. To be honest I don't care what you think, they're too cool.

What else happened today?

Oh yeah! I had all my hair cut off!

Yah, it's very short but it's actually a bit longer than I wanted it, but still I think it looks pretty cool. What does the internet think?

Anyway, I'm gunna go back to my gene sequencing again

Epic Week

Yeah, TV got in the way of me posting yesterday and the day before. Sorry about that.

Anyway, these past few days have been pretty epic to be honest, we got to use an air rifle in Physics. To be honest I'm still not entirely sure why. We did some calculations which showed that the bullet was traveling at 260  odd miles an hour which Wikipedia verified to be true. So that was pretty cool. Also I got elected as House Captain which is rather awesome. I'm not sure what it means I have to do but still I'm pretty glad I got it. Oh and some more epic things are coming up both tomorrow and the day after. But you'll just have to wait and see.

Right, I have to go and catch up on YouTube videos for the last couple of days.
