back from Zam, closed for biz

December 19, 2007

A very quick post before I flee the office as one would flee Cerberus from the gaping maw of Hades. I went to Zambia from the week of the 11th till the 17th. Saw the Vic falls, jumped off a cliff (tied to a rope though, woo), and did some other shit (unfortunately catching a Tigerfish was not one of them). The Gorge Swing was a rush. A terrifying, ‘omg im gonna die’ rush. Definately the high point of the trip. Counterbalanced by many, many low points, though. Zambia itself is a hole in the ground. At least I gained some persepctive. I could live in better places than where I reside now, but I certainly could live in worse. Like Zambia.
Ugh. It’s Hot. Really hot. And Wet. With bugs everywhere. And zero infrastructure. Forget internet. And nothing to really do. And everything is hellishly expensive. Gas, for eg? R15 a liter. Basically, the entire country is dirt poor. Imagine every town or city in your country is Soweto or Alexandria. That’s Zambia.

Quickly came into the office to take care of some issue, only to find out there’s no issue to take care of because the guy whose supposed to email me the import files, didn’t. /shrug. Not my problem then. So I’m off to enjoy the rest of the hols. Probably jusit gonna play a lot of WoW, maybe grab myself and Ecksbawks and Mass Effect.

So happy Christmas, Hanukah, whatever. Till ’08, i bid thee adieu.

direction…

November 7, 2007

First off, sorry about some comments going missing. I was messing around with content, screwed up and had to recreate some posts.

Anyhoo, the 4-1-1 is, I’m probably going to focus Fail2 on anime, pretty much. Yup. It’s now an anime blog, virtually exclusively. With a touch of random here and there.

The rest of my blogging will take place over at Goonsquad, where I’ll attempt to occasionally post something meaningful or clever or just plain abrasive.

set sail for phail

November 5, 2007

So here we go, back in the blogging arena. I’ve gone from blogspot to LJ back to blogspot, with a few detours along the way. I’ve had blogs about nothing, and blogs about everything. Blogs about my emo state of being and blog about politics and world affairs. I’ve had a blog about being a druid in World of Warcraft, and blogs about videogaming. I’ve had a blog about rants, and blogged about raves (no, not the glowstick-waving hopped up on E kind). And even, for a time, no blog at all.

This time around, I’ll have a blog for any and all of it. With some random crap thrown in for measure.

Welcome to the Square Root of Fail.
