Bleurgh. Happy Monday!

I'm writing this after a large swig of Night Nurse on a Monday morning. Safe to say I'm not going into work today, as I'm full of phlegm and coughing a lot. Sexy, right? Form an orderly queue...

I still feel bad for having time off, even though I'm genuinely feeling sick, and when there are always others in any job that seem to take more time off supposedly sick than time they actually spend working. Guess I'm just a good egg. 
Anyway it was quite a nice weekend, despite trying to ward off the cold that I have inevitably failed to do so. Had a curry Friday night, plain rice; lots of veg in an attempt to stay at least remotely healthy. 
Saturday I spent doing jobs I needed to do for the main part, with some new GTA thrown in occasionally for good measure. Anything to avoid doing actual work. 
I sorted out my wardrobes, something I've been meaning to do for a while. My so far successful weight loss means that a lot of my clothes are now way too big. It seemed presump…

Little things

Sometimes it's the little things that are life's greatest pleasures. After an extremely sunny walk home around the local lake rocking the newest Dance Gavin Dance album on my cans, I thought I best do something productive. I managed to get some paid website work done whilst sitting in the garden basking in the warmth of the late afternoon sun. 

I've also managed to watch some Clone Wars, play Child of Light and read some more of the final Darth Bane novel. I cooked a healthy tea too. 
It's been a pretty good day at school as well. A large portion of the afternoon was spent in a singing rehearsal for an upcoming concert with my year group which I am excited for (arguably more so than the kids). People have been commenting again on my weight loss which is keeping me determined to maintain my momentum. I'm actually just feeling pretty content right now, and thought I'd share that with whomever finds their way here. 
I've been keeping an eye on proceedings at E3 t…

Star Wars - Darth Bane #RuleOfTwo

Image
Rule of Two picks up exactly where Path of Destruction left off. The thought bomb has done irreparable damage to the world of Russann, as well as destroying the Dark Brotherhood and 100 Jedi. We are immediately introduced to Darovit, an emergency Jedi recruit turned Sith midway through the war. No over, he no longer has any allegiance to either side, but seeks answers for the mindless destruction. He journeys down the caves where the thought bomb was detonated, finding at the centre of it all, an abomination against nature. 
Darth Bane and his new found apprentice, Zannah, cousin to Darovit, go to see the epicentre of the explosion too. Zannah is learning quickly the lessons Bane puts to her, and in the caverns they meet Darovit. Whilst Bane would've just killed him, in a last act of mercy Zannah takes Darovit's arm, sparring him from the wrath of Bane. Darovit is scarred mentally, and is convinced by some Bouncers to love his days as an ordinary man. 
After destroying some wart…
