Total Recall

I managed to get up the hill without dying of exhaustion or overheating and I managed not to be the last one there, so I got a choice of seating. The game is still not very hectic - but I guess it's got time for that later - and I didn't lose any more SAN. In fact, I gained 3%, so I'm back up to 19%. This is all due to the fact that whilst the party were battling the king of fire vampires - my character was completely oblivious to it all. There are times when failing (and in one case fumbling) rolls is actually good :)

On the way back, I was sorely tempted to parp my horn (yah for horny goodness) at majic13 and Lyth, but I noticed some suspicious looking characters lurking about on the street corner. Looked like they were doing some kind of drug deal or something. Either way, I felt making a large amount of noise might risk their ire.

As I hurtled down the highstreet, some car started following me down blaring out loud unrecognisable music. I dunno why exactly, but this brought out memories I have of going to the pub with my parents as a small child. The smell of cigarette smoke and beer. The loud music. The taste of bottled coke. Crappy little arcade machines that I desparetely wanted to play, but didn't have any money to do so. Ultimately, a cool memory, but one that I'd forgotten I had.

My memory sucks...lots. My entire life is stored away in there somewhere, but I've not got an index. Stuff just randomly floats to the surface now and then. Usually it's food/smell related. I can be walking along and suddenly I'll get hit by the memory of some really yummy food. It can be very random and very annoying. There are some memories I wish I could remember.

It took a lot of concentration whilst getting back to remember my first real kiss. I can't remember much of it though, which just shows how bad my recall is. What I do remember is good though. I can remember the tingly numbness of my lips and the smell of cigerette smoke in her hair (we'd been clubbing). I can't recall enough of it though to remember what it fully felt like, which is bugging me. Good excuse to find someone to practice more on I guess...

    Some dodgy song about wanting to see someone's cat (in my head)

(no subject)

Phew. It's stopped being all cloudy and yucky looking. I'd left my jacket at home cos it was all hot and sunny this morning.

Off to see cryx in a bit to cook her yummy food which should be fun.

Work has been it's usually dullness, although I did do some work on a different project. Not that it's required much of me so far - just about 10 lines of extra code to an existing app I wrote.

Managed to move horn to a better position - I can now parp to my hearts content with a flick of my thumb. Well, until the air runs out. But it only takes barely a minute to pump it up fully. Or at least it would if my pump's tube wasn't so short. I shall have to put the bike on it's side whilst I pump it up I guess.
