The last week(s) has been... Interesting I suppose.
I have been a bit naughty and arranged a £500 overdraft to make sure that I wouldn't risk running low on funds for M'era Luna, Infest and my exams.
I then bought:
- Nightwish - Century Child
- Leonard Cohen - So Long Marianne
- Clannad - Clannad
- Wumpscut - Wreath of Barbs
- Some 6 CD chillout compilation :)
And yesterday I got:
- The Way of The Gun
- Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
- Black Moon Rising
Dr. Strangelove is undoubtedly one of the greatest movies ever, and The Way Of The Gun was just amazing. Anyone who liked The Usual Suspects must see this movie.
Hmmm, maybe that's why nailbug fell asleep while watching it. She was entirely unimpressed and bored by the Usual Suspects too.
And she didn't want to see Dr Strangelove for some reason (I think it was because it was in black & white, but I could be wrong).
I recently bought Warcraft III: The Collectors Edition because of all the extra goodies and it was well worth it. Anyone who's contemplating getting Warcraft III should get this set. The book with all the artwork is worth the £20 by itself.
But anyway, after all this retail therapy, I have decided to work even harder at getting my MCSE ASAP.
I was going to try to do another exam by the 1st of September, but I'm going to try to move it forwards to the 7th of August. I'll then try to take the next one shortly after Infest.
And because I'm a total masochist, I'm going to try to do the last three exams in September. this will most likely cause a total brain meltdown, but with a bit of luck from The Great Ancient Ones I should be able to make it.
I suspect I will have to stop all social interaction outside of work to make this deadline, but it'll be worth it in the long run.
Hmm, this got a bit longer than I expected, so I'll write more later.
I'll also make an update on my plans for M'era Luna for those of you who wish to either meet up at some point or who would like to camp near us :)
