For the most part, I programmed and played games. I also worked on a website. Dinner was a very tasty pasta thing with some Garlic in it. Yeah, the veggie score falls down very easily and I need a new scoring system. After dinner I sent off a job application form and started on two others (online ones you can save). Then, I went over to Sam's house and had a great time. First off, it's actually Gareth's house, Sam just likes to say it's his. Gareth's house is very nice and so is the Wii. It's great fun to use and very different to the usual mouse orientated system of a PC or Mac. We played bowling ,4 players, I came second last first time and last the second. After bowling we played some game where you shot at baloons. I played against Gwen (I think that was her name, she didn't talk to me much) and thrashed her because I hit on the simple tactic of clicking the tigger constantly and having some semblance of skill at hitting the targets. In fact, I might have gotten the highest score of all three rounds (we played three rounds of two). The final Wii game was a spot the doubles thing. Emma beat me by 7 points because she kept telling me I was blocking the screen. Apparently I was also very energetic in my bowling actions, though to be fair I was spurred on by Sam leaping across the room, I felt I had to prove I could bound better. We watched Elf, it was most amusing and I liked it quite a lot, though as my Mum said, it might be because of the company. After Elf Jonathan + Becca and Gavin + Gwen went home leaving myself, Sam, Gareth and Emma to wait for Emma to be picked up by her parents. Gareth is a real geek and has read a lot of books that I have too, this gives him a "cool" score almost as high as if he played WoA. Sam played some Coheed and Cambria and we watched some funny videos on the net. Gareth gave me a lift home, I got home, blogged and went to bed. If it snows tomorrow (it might well) then I'll be postponing results a little as I will be "otherwise engaged".

Friday, December 22, 2006
Shortly after I got up, James came over and for the rest of the morning/early afternoon we played games. Myself, Coel and James had a Mc Donalds for lunch and then played more games in the evening. Actually, I played games pretty much all day. Dinner tonight was a very very tasty roast dinner, however, it only scored 1 brussel sprout and 3 cubic cm of carrot. I'm beginning to wonder if the Veggie score is still the best system to use...

I had less of a lie in and spent more time playing games than yesterday. On the plus side the programming went well. I would like to take the time to write that it's very nice being home, I get lots of free food and there's also my cat whom pretty much falls asleep anywhere. Dinner was a very nice curry, I ate something I can't remember the name of (it began with an S) but otherwise I don't recall any veggies. Friday I'll be going to the party thingie in Ammanford (I think it's at Jonathan's house) which will be fun.
I had a lie in, got up and spent the rest of the day programming. Really, I pretty much programmed for the entire day. It was good fun. In the evening I had Spaghetti Bolognese, it scores a small lump of tomato because that's all I ate (though my Mum and Dad strongly hinted that there was some stuff cut up to quite a small size). And that is what happened today. Oh, and I might not be going to get that free stuff anymore (believe me, I'm not happy either). On the plus side something is happening somewhere on Friday!

I had a lie in until about 0915, got up and noticed how it's slightly colder here in Wales. Of course, with a complete lack of wind inside the house I saw no reason not to wear shorts. The morning involved WoA and then computer gaming. Lots of computer gaming. Later there was some programming (you can rarely have too much programming), more gaming, more programming and then some dinner. It was a very nice but only scored a quarter of a small tomato because the rest of the vegetables were not so nice, still I really liked the dinner and ate all of it. After dinner there was (shock horror) more programming, some gaming but before those my parents told me that Cerys was really good at getting free stuff (being a very young lady she apparently looks cute). Apparently Cerys went around some shops somewhere and got a load of free samples for purfume and stuff, at some point myself and Cerys are going to Swansea and having a competition over it. Of course, this means I need to find someone to give said stuff to... Who remembers this? (part 2 of that is here). Also, Sam, if you're reading this, are there housegroups on this week?

I didn't sleep amazingly well but well enough that I got out of bed and got a lift to Church from Gethin (he's learning to drive and is doing very well). The service was about the Geaneology of Jesus, about how his ancestors were really not that great, some of them were, some of them were not. Even the great ones had their problems. After the service I got a lift back via Gethin again and at home I did various things such as WoA and programming. I also played Stepmania with Cerys a little. Dinner was a delicious roast dinner which earns a whole Brussel sprout and a slice of carrot for it's score (hey, if you put few vegetables on the plater you're going to get a low score). In the evening I cycled to a carol service. I got there and apparently I wasn't meant to wear shorts, it was "cold" or some such rubbish like that. Bah, I felt fine (okay, my ears were freezing but I didn't bring my hat with me). The carols were okay, I sat at the back with Becca (no, completely different one from the CU, this Becca is the wife of Jonathan from Wales). I meant to ask about housegroups while there but forgot. Sam, I know you read this, so here's your mention, are housegroups still on? I cycled back, WoAed some more, laughed at Emma (with the aid of Huw) and went to bed.
