Currently around me the whole of my world is hurtling towards that special time, once all about the birth of a child, now about monopolies making money. Yet, me the guy who says "i hate monopolies" is enjoying him self. Wow.
Yep, Christmas time is the one time i guess i really dont care how much i spend. I dont mean i let go of all controls, but its no way as strict as i normally am with my money, and it brings me happyness when i know i have the pefect pressies for everyone, and when they open them they will all be happy on that festive day. \o/
I think i've done quite well this year, however, i still have nothing for my mums birthday on the 28th. Hopefully the shops will of reopened by then and i can pick something nice up...
But thats not to be worried about now, nor is the fact i have some c/w to do for uni. Its sitting there in my bag and now i guess it will stay there until i get worried enough about it that i pluck it out and get on with it!
I had some things i wanted to talk about today, but is it worth it i ask? Maybe. Last night i saw some of the comedy awards, they were pretty boring actually, i think the producers are trying to cover too much with one show. Instead of just covering comedy shows, they covered every type of show, and just stuck the word comedy on the begining...
But it was very kool when Steven Hawkins did a guest appearance to give an award to Matt Groening for the hit show the Simpsons. A list of most of the awards is here.
Other random stuff is happening in the world today, and most of it is crazy. People are increasingly blaming computer games for the problems in todays youth. Wait, i was todays youth not to long ago and i know that i never did anything from computer games. Well, not nothing exactly, but nothing like stabbing people and such random crazyness. Also what really seems to hit me hard is the fact that we see these events happening concerning lads aged 12-17 and yet they are playing games which are clearly labled as 18. This means that somehow they are getting games which are not meant to people of their age. Some teenagers maybe more mature than others and be able to cope with these scenes and some surely CAN'T.
Some people say blame the people selling the games, and yes, part of this is the problem, but more often that not, its the parents buying what ever the child wants without taking any notice of the age rating. I know this from fact from when i worked in a supermarket and i had parents buying games, when with them they had v.young children, i would warn them about the age warning and they would seem to not care. Sometimes they would even be annoyed. Madness resumes, now amy and her friend are here, i guess its time to stop this rant... Night Night. And merry CHirstmas!
Currently Listening to: Something...
