I'm not sure if blogiversary is even a word, but hey. This is the internet so meh; who carez bout spelingz aniwayz?
Anyway, as the title suggests today (or rather yesterday - as it's pass midnight here) was the blog's one year anniversary! Yay! Hooray! Break out the champagne! Yea, so it's a big day for us all, especially it seems as the exam gods felt like they would like to mock me by making me have a full day of maths with two maths exams. Argh. Anyway, nevermind the worse is over now and it's clear blue sky until next Tuesday!
Sorry, I digress I've gone off-topic again. It's the one year anniversary for the blog. Yes, it's been one whole year since I first started this devil spawn of a blog and I'm rather impressed. Let's see now... 22613 hits since it started. That's just under 62 visits a day; not bad for a relatively new blog. And let's look at the all important post that started this all off:
Tuesday, 1 May 2007
Ok, so after being encouraged by my friends to start a blog - names not included, you know who you are *cough* Gavin & Ashley *end cough* - heres the blog...
Ok, so it needs a little work but geez give me a break; I've only just started blogging.
Right, firstly... erm.... *attempts to think of something funny* heres one - A rabbi, a priest and a monk... ok, actually thats not that funny. Hm... dammit Gavin & Ashley, what was the point of this blog?
Anyway, a little about me:
Well, I have a Wii (yea, Wii FTWZOMGMOO - thats for you Ashley) and if yours is connected online then you can add me:
- I'm currently 15, birthday soon (mental note - yea!)
- GCSEs are around the corner (mental note - boo)
- Drama exam is in two days time (damn... we haven't even finished yet - I blame this on Daisy with her holiday; don't worry if you don't know who she is. Just count yourself lucky)

Currently I have one added Wii (Lewis ☺) but should be getting two more online soon. It's also funny because I originally had two people in the Mii Plaza - Lewis & Gavin - but I... kinda... accidentally deleted Gavin... so Lewis is walking all alone in the Mii Plaza, almost makes me pity him, almost.
So, anyway, thats about it for my first blog. Not much to say, send in your comments and ideas of what I should talk about in my next one and I'll try to oblige.
Ok... woah. Did I really post that? If I did, I'd take some of what I took back then, it's pretty messed up. I gotta say. During this year, a lot of things happened. Gavin joined in on the fun (and we even started this little story - good luck finding that btw) and Kate did later on. But soon, they found other things to do and I'm the lone surviving author for this blog (not that their dead though). It's funny looking back at some of the posts I did; it reminds me of what I was thinking of the time and I can generally look back at it from a different angle and see how things could have turned out. It's all very confusing stuff to the hebetudinous.
Funnily enough, I'd actually been playing this post for quite a while now and thought about what to write in it quite a bit (most of the ideas come from when I'm in the shower, har har har!) but now that it's time to write it, I've gone blank. There's some much I'd like to say but if I told you some of the stuff I knew I'd probably have to kill you.
Ok, let's move on to more recent events in my not-so-but-still-quite eventful life. There was Daisy's birthday bash; which somehow trickled down to a more somber controlled event - most noticeably the loss of a bouncy castle - but it was still fun. It had been a long time since a group of us had been together like that and just chilled for a while (for me anyway as I missed Matthew's party). Not much to talk about really, except I jumped off a roof and we played "Irish Snap" and got my hand cut by someone with long nails; I have yet to figure out who the culprit was.
All in all, we had a laugh.
In other news, I got GTA IV and have been playing for a good few days now. And all I've got to say is: Wow. The game looks awesome and plays well (much better than previous versions) and I'm glad to say that it lives up the the enormous amount of hype it's been generating. And the city just feels so alive, no joke. I was driving along one day when I noticed an over-turned truck which had nothing to do to me and police were coming to the scene and everything; there was also another time where I was walking down the street when a person accidentally rams the car in front at the traffic lights. The person in front doesn't like it and they start an argument, this soon descends into a fist fight and they're duking it out while police sirens get closer. One of them gets arrested while the other runs off, but is shot. I found this hilarious as this was the first time I've seen the police arrest someone other than Niko (the main protagonist).
There's also many chances for hilarious moments, especially with the physics as good as they are. I think the best moment I've had yet was when crashing my car with the car in front and flying out the windscreen I roll over the car in front (it's all in slow-mo and black and white) and into the junction, then BOOM! A truck comes careering into Niko as he's in the air and I've got to say I was cracking up seeing that as it was a one off thing and I doubt I could pull it off again.
Anyway, it's about time I wrap this up. It's getting late and I've got an early start tomorrow. See you in the (hopefully) forseeable future.
