I got up later than I wanted too, but that's because I've had a few too many late nights, it's much earlier tonight so that's going to help. The day consisted of WoA, Warcraft 3, Eating and umm, more Warcraft 3 in the evening. I even made a new friend from Romania (we cracked a lot of jokes in one of the game and had a lot of fun). Tomorrow is my B201 exam so I did do some revision, it's all about things like Health and Safety. Oh, I also had a look at learning a new programming language called Perl, apparently it'll make me very employable. Still nothing from HP.

Monday was pretty boring, I also went to bed really late so didn't blog. Tuesday was much better, HP phoned me asking if I was still interested in the job at Bristol, I of course said yes. Huw came over and we sorted out a load of WoA stuff. I also played Warcraft 3 quite a lot. Today was the Prayer Lunch, specifically the one where I was bringing some food. Rather than a crate-load of Tunafish Sandwiches I opted to bring Parmiers. First I had to cook them. I cooked some last night and made some more this morning. Everybody was surprised that I had cooked something, and something so tasty at that. They were all eaten by the end of the lunch and I only had two of them. The rest of the day was spent with some work and some Warcraft 3.

I had a lie in as per usual, walked Becca and Siän to Church and helped with the Discoverers. It is really satisfying and fulfilling to be able to help, I even got a bracelet from it (we made some Bracelets) which I later gave to Sarah as she'd actually wear it. I was going to be walking an additional lady to Church but I somehow didn't get her Email and so wasn't aware she was going home for the weekend. Oh well, that's life. After the service we went to the Thatched House, Brierley was somewhat hyperactive and played leapfrog some of the way, it was quite good fun. I ate all of my half roast chicken, partly to prove to Brierley that I could, partly because I was hungry enough that I could. I went home and did some WoA stuff along with napping. The evening service was about persecution. Interestingly enough, the countries such as China, where Christians are persecuted openly and in a very nasty way, the people do not pray it goes away, they find that in it their faith in Jesus grows. It reminds me of something Ceryn asked/told a group of us on the way to Church one day. "When persecution comes here, which it will, are we going to be able to endure it?" It makes me wonder, I've never been persecuted for my faith, mocked yes but that happens with most things I do. Once I got back I looked at some trailers on the Apple Site, it turns out the 720dp High Def trailers are very very nice on this computer, I also found a way to save them to disk (igetmovies didn't work). I now have almost 2GB of them, very handy as I now don't need to stream them off each time. Some of the films I look fowards to are 300, Children of Men (already out, apparently really good), Happily N'ever After and Shrek the Third. Some others that I'll probably not watch at the cinema but would be intersted in finding the DVD of will be Evan Almighty, Fantastic Four rise of the Silver Surfer, Letters from Iwo Jima, Smokin' Aces, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Lives of Others.
