Boredom, Britney, Beef, And Other Things Which Don't Actually Begin With The Letter, B

Bored. Bored. Bored. Bored. I have nothing to do. At all.

Feel about as low as I've ever felt today and I assume that's why as there doesn't seem to be an actual cause.

Could really do with finding some inspiration from somewhere because as it stands, I don't even have a reason to get out of bed in a morning. What's worse is, I haven't even got the enthusiasm to make the changes even though I know this is bad for me and life is quite literally passing me by. I really was kidding myself when I thought I could start getting things on track because I've actually no idea what I want to do or where I want to end up, or indeed what the point is. Back to the drawing board I think. In short... meh! shrug.gif

I saw Britney Spears in concert on Saturday. That was kind of fun. Turns out that's she's actually a pretty good dancer, I was impressed. Not that I'm really qualified to say what constitutes a good dancer, given that I'm about as coordinated as a drunken monkey. She didn't fall over or kick anyone by accident so in my book that's reason to be impressed. Can't really comment on the singing as she didn't do a great deal. I've just thought of another 'B' word: backing-track! Got myself a photographers pass and managed to get a few decent pictures so I was happy enough.

On Sunday, my sister and I were tasked with cooking a roast beef lunch for seven members of our family. Turns out that I'm really good at making gravy. We managed it and nobody has died from food poisoning so I guess we can call it a success. Whole load of effort though, seems far easier to reach for the pizza menus! Less washing up that way too. I did all the washing up, in case you were wondering. I can actually be quite domesticated when given half a chance. tongue.png

Although there were no human deaths yesterday, I am currently bereaved. My PS3 died suddenly, right in the middle of me playing a game. Tragic. I did however enjoy taking it to pieces today in order to recover the disc which was stuck inside, the added bonus being that I didn't have to worry about putting it back together. That's impossible. You think you've fixed it and you put the lid back on, only to find that you've a screw left over and you're thinking, 'Oh crap, where the hell is that supposed to go?!'

So, new PS3 ordered, thus drastically decreasing the likelihood of anyone receiving any Christmas presents from me this year. huh.png

In other news, I've decided that shaving is pointless. I mean, I shave and have to put up with irritation and a breakout or whatever as a result, just to have to shave again a few days later. It's pointless. A total waste of time. Same goes for eating: I eat, I get hungry, I have to eat again. It's never-ending. Same goes for sleeping: I sleep, wake up, get tired, end up having to sleep again. I'm pretty sure it's some kind of conspiracy. I've no idea what or why, or even if there's any weight to my argument, but I'll try and get to the bottom of it and let you know.

EDIT 8/11:

I've just been in touch with faithgirl via Facebook, she asked me to explain why she hasn't been around. I'm sure her regular readers will remember that she was going away on vacation. Well, while she was away, unfortunately her house was burgled. (This entry really is about things beginning with B, isn't it!) One of the things which was stolen was her laptop so we might not see her around for a little while until that's replaced and she's just going to have to try and cope with the withdrawal symptoms. :P

In amongst all this, her two Huskies managed to escape and run away but they were spotted and taken to a local vets by a very kind soul and have since been reunited with their owner. I guess every cloud does have a silver lining.

Anyway, faithgirl wanted me to check in and say hello on her behalf, sure she'll be back online soon. :)

Hey Paul, I'm sorry to hear you didn't have a good time these days. It can be even more difficult to feel awful and not find a reason to be. You still maintain your sense of humor and seem to look on the brighter side of things. How about you don't shave? Do you have relationships or a job that keeps you from having facial hair? My boyfriend seems to have acne only where he shaves, which is mainly his jawline area. Granted, the most I see of him, if I'm lucky, is once a week on skype through a grainy web cam. But honestly, it doesn't bother me. I couldn't care less because with or without acne, he is just as handsome. I'm sure that the family and friends around you would feel the same.

I've thought the same thing about eating lol. I eat, but in a few hours I'm going to be hungry again! It's fuel for our bodies, and if we don't have fuel our bodies are stressed, which probably leads to acne and other more serious health problems. Keep on trucking, Paul! There's a light at the end of this tunnel.

Thanks for the info on faithgirl, I kind of just assumed she was still vacationing, but no, her life has been upheaved. I'm glad she didn't lose the huskies, I love those dogs and I've never met them. I hope she comes back soon, even though I was a silent stalker.

And I'm so sorry about your playstation, I feel your pain. My Xbox 360 DVD drive has been screwed for two or maybe three years, still haven't bothered to get a new one. But you know, all that lost potential, all those hours I had nothing to do and could have spent gaming. It makes me cry on the inside. ;)

I'll figure out eventually. I think I'm just going through a bit of a phase really. It'll pass, they always do. When it passes I'll have to capitalise on it and start making changes. I'm unemployed at the moment and have been for a while so I'm kind of bored these days which is a big contributing factor. That's one of the things I need to try and sort out. The other stuff is skin related which kind of sucks because if the condition of my skin is up and down, so it my mood and that gets kind of tiring. It's on a par with being bipolar in a way as I never seem to know how I'm going to be from one day to the next.

How about you don't shave? Do you have relationships or a job that keeps you from having facial hair? My boyfriend seems to have acne only where he shaves, which is mainly his jawline area.

I've no job (see above :P ) or relationship which would make a difference as to whether or not I shave. The main reason I shave is because I'm rubbish at growing a beard. It's grows unevenly and goes ginger after about a week. I guess I'm just not manly enough to do it properly and my Mum says I look like a tramp! :doh:

I never really talk to my family about my skin to be honest and I think they just expect to see me with bad skin sometimes, or with some kind of topical on my spots, etc.. I guess that's cool in that there's a degree of acceptance there, but at the same time it's kind of depressing that they see it as being normal for me and as being part of who I am. I'd rather it wasn't part of who I am I suppose.

It's not an issue as far as friends go as I don't have a social circle to hang out with so apart from my family, there isn't really anyone who sees me much these days. I haven't had a group of friends since I left school and that was over eight years ago. :shrug:

It's awesome to hear that you think of your boyfriend that way and that his skin wouldn't bother you one way or the other. I assume he feels the same way about you and whatever you may have to deal with as far your skin is concerned, too. That's really nice, I'm glad you've found someone like that and have that kind of relationship. :)

I'm appalled by your lack of dedication to gaming! ;)
