The peak and fall of a ferris wheel

As some of you may have noticed, I have internet access now. It was a nice suprise, seeing as I didn't exactly expect it. I kinda just arrived home to my grandpa telling me off for having an unclean room when the internet installation guy was there. At first I was thinking 'wth are people doing in my room?!' before the fact that I had net now actually hit me. btw, my room is normally uber clean, but I let a 2/3 yr old roam loose in it the night before and didn't feel like cleaning it up at the time.
The first thing I did was attempt to get some anti virus protection. Ever since that LAN party at Matts house, my computer has been infected with some idiot virus that screws over any exe files it can get it's grubby little cyber paws on, and stop it from working. Which at first seemed to work, the program tracking down some 6-8 thousand infected files, and quarantining most of them. "Most" =_=
Because when I got home from school the next day, I found that the virus had reinfected everything, INCLUDING the newly downloaded antivirus program. It was McAfee btw. My Norton expired some ages ago. I went on msn (one of the still functioning programs) to get some recommendations for good anti virus's, and I ended up trying 5 or 6 different ones. 4 of them died, much like McAfee, some not even getting to start their scan, some before they even got to open!
The last two were used at the same time, and it LOOKED like they worked, and my computer FELT like they worked. As you can probably tell from my empathised words, they didn't. I woke up this morning to find my computer pretty much even worse than it was before. And it got to my MSN ;_; And I tried to download the setup for it, but the vurs killed that too ;^;
On a few lighter tones, I seem to be getting back into gaming =] I finished Gem TD Extreme Race mode for those of you who know what that is. I started playing Maple again...*dodges various forms of slander and 'wtf' insults*. And I started playing this awesome mmorpg called RF Online. It just looks so awesome, though it has a slight WoW-esque feel to it, which kinda creeps me out a bit. But then again, WoW doesn't have a mech race does it? And awesome cutscenes that remind you of the Final Fantasy Advent Children movie. *nods*. Though, I suspect that the reason I'm playing them is due to lack of other stuff to do >< Maple I can play because I have the setup for it, and everytime I want to open it, I can run the setup to repair the file. RFO is awesome because when I open it, the patcher thing automatically fixes the game file for me ^^ Oh and I'm finally up to date with Avatar =D
Well I don't have much else to say, so I'll end it here =] Night All, wish I was on msn >.>

Well the past week has been a nice change of pace. Probably with fairly negative effects on my quality of study, but it was nice ^^
Monday was an excursion to a museum of disease, which was fairly awesome. For those of you who don't know, I find very very few things too gruesome to look at, so I had fun looking at all the bits and pieces of random body parts with diseases sticking to them.
Thursday was Valentines Day~ And to everyone who I sent roses/bears to, once again, I'm very sorry for the really random messages I wrote down with crap handwriting >< It was written on my knee and I had to make up near 20 personalised messages in under 10minutes =[ And I got a rose too ^^ Which made me happy, being the 2nd rose ever recieved probably made me appreciate it more or something *nods*
Singagrams are funny. lmao at "sex bomb".
Friday was the swimming carnival. I lol at the seat filled with people playing DS's, especially when the race was over (they were playing Mario Kart) and then their faces of intense concentration blossomed into a variety of expressions ranging from rage to awesome relief at last minute luck based wins =]
I played Hearts again, Stephanie and Michelle wanting a rematch to redeem themselves after their 3v1 loss during the holidays. I came 2nd, and they had to resort to teaming up against me again =[
Saturday, I went to Liverpool. I was meant to be watching Jumper with a bunch of people but for whatever stupid reason, 80% of them decided to go see it on Friday night, and reported that it was uber crap. Which I guess could be seen as lucky in some ways. I decided to watch Cloverfield instead.
ZOMG WTH WAS WITH THAT ENDING RAGE RABBLE ETC FREAKING FREAK OF A FREAKED UP FREAKAMAFREAK HELL POO
-end of spoiler-
Afterwards we went to play DDR =] I thank Dangar for showing me that near empty place where you can play unlimited DDR for half an hour for only $8 ^^
On the topic of memory

Ok, so this post is a little bit late, and I blame that on school =] Which actually isn't so bad, since I have the willpower to keep the promises I made to myself to 'be bothered'.
Anyway, this is going to be a kind of abstract idea sort of post, with little relevance to my actual life, so if you're a stalker, this is my way of warning you not to waste your time.
Now memory. An odd thing that seems to be different for everyone, yet identical at the same time. I'm particularly interested in how it looks when you try to 'visualise' your memory.
In my case, memory is... well I'll try to describe how it looks first. At first, it's like a large empty white space, for those who have seen DBZ, it's a lit like the hyperbolic time chamber thing. Then when I try to remember something, a number of blobs of bright rainbowy light balls appear and kinda float around together, and their colours just shift really quickly (each one different) until they find a combination that vaguely looks familiar.
Once it reaches that stage, they kinda "lock" into that colour combination and start shifting through all the shades, once again 'locking in' the correct version.
Finally, the whole image goes into focus, and I have a nice accurate picture of whatever I'm remembering, or a picture of something I associate with it. All of this happens in a kind of slow motion in my mind, even if it was barely a few seconds in real life.
I like my memory =] It's awesome.
A week of activity

Tuesday, 15th of January-
I went out to celebrate Jonathons birthday- in the form of watching Bee Movie. Flippin stupid movie, but I guess it WAS a childrens movie, so it's forgiven. Moral of the story- "If you dont care what anyone else thinks, you can FLY!". -_-" It wasn't all bad I guess. Though for some reason, I suspected one of the bees to be gay and suddenly you see him with a purple stinger.
Afterwards we (Jonathon and his brother, Sophia and her brother, Stephen, Albert, Phi, Victor, and myself) kinda just bummed around in a park, playing tips, DS's, and randomly running up and accross walls. An alright day, made even better because normally the two little brothers tease me to death but this time Albert took the most of it ^^,
Went with John, Michelle, Stephanie, Stephen, Jonathon and his brother, Sophia and her brother, Steven, and William to Farifield Leisure Centre. Supposedly we were there to play badminton but for the greater part of that time, I played hearts against William, Stephanie and Michelle. Halfway through, everyone suddenly decided to turn against me, openly showing each other their cards and getting advice from each other on what to put down -_-. And since they were taking so long trying to work out what cards I had, I decided to give in and just show them. And I ended up shooting the moon and winning ._.
For all those who are hearts illiterate, for every heart you have, you gain a point, and the Queen of spades will get you 13. This is bad. The point of the game is to have the lowest amount of points. "Shooting the moon" is when you get ALL the hearts AND the queen of spades. This may sound like suicide, but instead of getting 26 points, you give everyone else 26 points while you score 0. And that's what I done to beat 3 people actively plotting against me ^^
Was at Nguyens house, with Steven, Stephen, Wilson, Nguyen (obviously) and his sister and cousin. Unfortunately I forgot to bring Mario Tennis, so we were stuck playing ssbm for a few hours before deciding we needed pizza. Not that theres anything wrong with ssbm, just that everyone needs a little variety.
btw, long live Epic Phail- The lvl 100 magikarp with 1 hp who's always poisoned, and has splash, taunt, flail and roar of time. And holds a bicycle. Lol.
Went to Jacobs house with Matt, Andrew, and Denis. Nothing special here, just a whole bunch of random. The random was fun though, there was a period that lasted for about half an hour where everyone (including Jacobs sister) was simply throwing scrunched up paper balls at each other and hiding behind makeshift shields (I used an umbrella, Matt at one point used Andrew xD).
And there you have the vaguely interesting points since the last post.
Random meaningless facts-
I started my homework and realised how HORRIBLE my handwriting had become, after several weeks of disuse.
I got a random 30second phonecall from a pair of twins in Melbourne who wanted to know what I sounded like. (The call came at 10:30pm ish while I was using the home phone, which was set on speaker)
I stared at myself in the mirror for some 15minutes this morning and suddenly thought to myself "...hey I have brown eyes..." followed straight after by "heck that was random.."
