Guess Who's Back... Back Again...

Greg is back... tell a friend.

So I've not been posting much recently. Well, that is posting much in a livejournal sense, a place that has over 200 posts a minute. Madness... mind you I suppose that if there really are 690817 active journals then at that rate that is about 2 days for everyone to post.

Mind you even then I am lagging behind.. so my apologies for keeping you all in suspence.

Very few things of note have happened to me, and I'm feeling quite apathetic in many ways so that doesn't help. Even opinion based rants tend to leave me bored when I write them out (talk to me tho and I'll be happy to rant.. less effort). So yes, lack of content postage recently.

Things That Have Happened To The Greg:
  • New job. Yep, a friend of mine is starting as co-manager of a Virgin Megastore (thats a music store) and offered me a job, its more solid hours and better pay (just) so will do for now. I might keep Gadget Store on as a sat job for spending money. Can't hurt right? This also means that Iceland is most likely a go, repeat a go. Still depends on this months paycheck, and if I can sell one of the things I have, but its looking positive.

  • I am being sued. Well.. sort of, I'm being taken to small claims court by the fucktard that hit my car. He claims he had whiplash. What-ever. He didn't recieve treatment at the scene, and was speeding. You speed, your problem. Well as far as I'm concerned anyhow. I'm not giving a penny to this guy, so fuck him and the horse he rode in on. My insurance company is dealing with it anyhow.
Other than that its just been a dull week. My hours got cut at the store (another reason to take a guarenteed full time position at Virgin) so I've been off, and off sick at that.

KILLER headache of doom has been dogging me this week. I seem to have fought it off as I type, thankfully.. I actually was in tears and scratched the paint off from my wall it was so painful a couple of nights ago. Pretty harsh huh?

I'll leave you for now, I'm probably going to do an audio post in a bit - the intro to my NaNoWriMo novel. I have no hope of finishing it, and I'm not really working much on it atm.. obviously. But it's started - and I will at least use it as the framework for Twilight. Getting things down on paper is REALLY helping.

“London is steeped in history. It’s lousy with it. Walk down any street and you will find it. Statues that proclaim to whoever will read that someone they’ve never heard of did something they don’t care about on this very spot. Street names ring with the forgotten meanings of yester-year. Hanging Swords Alley, or St Tweezers Lane. Who was St Tweezer? The world may never know.

London is bloated with nightlife. From the ever-dark of the lower levels, to the channelled natural light of Notting Hill Heights. As soon as the sun goes down the revellers come out, into the night. Into the thousands of venues that wait, just for them. Flashy neon lights beam down on their gleaming, sickly faces as they enter nightclubs to dance their minds away, to forget who they are, to live in the moment, to be someone else, to have someone else… just for one night.

London is busy. Never ending streams of traffic run through the streets, pumping people and products around like lifeblood. By day they look like ants, by night – the most fabulous glow worms. The hustle and bustle of daily life flows around the city, infecting every pore, until it is just one beautiful stream of information… travelling from destination to destination, glistening in the night.

London is new. Shiny spires tower over old roofs, constant regeneration. Old buildings are added to and evolve like a forest in time-lapse photography. New technology makes buildings think and respond to their occupants every need. Rebuilt a thousand times, the city is modern, the city has money, the city has people, the city is the only place to live.

London is where the world will end… but not tonight.”
