Survivor Update !!

Oooooooo..... things got spiced up a bit with a new individual immunity back to back with the reward challenge. Sadly game ranger man did not give Ivy league (Brian i think) his immunity and he was sent home. =(

As for the reward challenge... NASTY ... with people getting squashed and some serious male aggression being thrown around. 'J' asked me if i had seen anything sillier and immature before. I had to answer 'Yes' when it was me doing it. =)

Bobby Jon did get to have hotdogs and beer though.

Jud must be removed at all cost*

*My opinion anyway

Queensberry Rules

I ask the question "What are the Queensberry rules" the other day at W's birthday bash. I did get an answer but decided to have look anyway. Herewith follow the Queensberry Rules, so named after the 9th Marquess of Queensberry endorsed them. These rules superseded the London Prize ring rules.

1. To be a fair stand-up boxing match in a 24-foot ring, or as near that size as practicable.
2. No wrestling or hugging allowed.
3. The rounds to be of three minutes' duration, and one minute's time between rounds.
4. If either man falls through weakness or otherwise, he must get up unassisted, 10 seconds to be allowed him to do so, the other man meanwhile to return to his corner, and when the fallen man is on his legs the round is to be resumed and continued until the three minutes have expired. If one man fails to come to the scratch in the 10 seconds allowed, it shall be in the power of the referee to give his award in favour of the other man.
5. A man hanging on the ropes in a helpless state, with his toes off the ground, shall be considered down.
6. No seconds or any other person to be allowed in the ring during the rounds.
7. Should the contest be stopped by any unavoidable interference, the referee to name the time and place as soon as possible for finishing the contest; so that the match must be won and lost, unless the backers of both men agree to draw the stakes.
8. The gloves to be fair-sized boxing gloves of the best quality and new.
9. Should a glove burst, or come off, it must be replaced to the referee's satisfaction.
10. A man on one knee is considered down and if struck is entitled to the stakes (This means he wins) .
11. No shoes or boots with springs allowed.

12. The contest in all other respects to be governed by revised rules of the London Prize Ring.

Apparently the whole point of these rules was to make the sport of boxing more civilised. Giving it a more win fair than win at all cost creed.

The Queensberry Rules also happens to be an English folk band. =)

It's finished.....

The mapping of the human gnome has been completed. Having completed most of it 3-4 years ago and leaving the best for last. Chromosome is finished. Also Telkom finally installed my DSL line on Thursday. This is only after i got my grubby little mits on Cape Town's technical departments telephone number. The call centre gave it to me after i yelled at them for the 4th time. Apparently they are not supposed to give this number out. =)

THE POWER !!!!!!!!!

Now i just need to work out how to get the wireless to work and everything will be cool. Although for playing WoW i think i may just stick to cable for now. Yay i can play WoW again. I have deposited Aurelie in the wetlands for some crocolisk and raptor action. All the other areas are just too high for her at the moment. Kitsune has become a permanent feature next to the mail box in Darnassus for the time being. Once the two are closer in lvls i will start him up again.

I have been catching a couple of episodes of 4400 lately on MNET. My TV aerial is routed through the main houses VCR, so i can watch whatever they are watching. Fortunately they leave it on MNET most of the time. Very bizarre series. I have no idea what is going it it though as i think this is S2 or S3. They speak of cults and religions. There are even snipers and plague carriers. What fun........

Yay Frat boy has been kicked of the tribe. Go team. Captain America with a bottle of jack was getting old.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!HAPPY BIRTHDAY WAYNNE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Time machine

My inter-dimensional electro hydro time traveller is getting dismantled tomorrow. So i better get the lotto numbers tonight

Zang, DSL goes in tomorrow and i have the modem all shiny and waiting for the techie. Let telkom just try and blame it not working on the modem. Ha ha. My cunning scares even me..........

Survivor tonight and i forgot to post some lame comment about the last one. I will say one thing (in my humble opinion) Traitors should go first. Anyone willing to switch sides that fast is a liability. Not to mention his ego being a danger in challenges, he should have swapped out at war club 4. This is of course why i don't play well with others.

Phase 1 completed !!

Had to do a mad rush back home this morning to go and let Telkom in to the flat so the techie could install the line. This would be pre-phase one (the phase that even Telkom forgot to tell me about) turns out the guy only got the works order this morning. Anyway as a result phase 1 was completed too. This getting of the modem. Now phase 2, the installation of the actual DSL line. Lets just hope that the guy without the appointment, who managed to get there, does not bode ill for the guy with the appointment. Modem is wifi too, yay !!!!

In other news went through to a LAN at Dave's house on saturday night. Played lots and lots of DotA, not convinced that it is the game for me. This could be more a result of the competitive "spirit" that was permeating the room. I will say no more...

Watched MI:3 on sunday. I enjoyed it, although it really is getting impossible and who came up with Impossible mission force. Just as well their agents can kick your arse into next tuesday.
Otherwise there would be much sniggering i thinks.
I am curious about shooting something up a nose into the brain,
yet not killing the shootee.

New things

What is new in the life of me...

I have been struggling to find away to get a dvd player while leaving my existing one with my mom and on Sunday i solved my problem. Go PS2's they are much cool. Yet staying up till midnight playing Rachet & Clank may become a slight problem. So much for the dvd player =)

Other new things is that i have a domain registered and i did the registration all by my lonesome. Steve helped me out loads with the hosting and email addies. So now i have a a proper bonified email address all to myself, yet i will not post it here. Also feel free not to try find the website as there is nothing there at the moment. To be rectified by Xmas, of what year we are not sure.

Back to work *sigh*

Fruitcakes & old friends


Interesting week......................

Someone looked me up on skype and i have been chatting with them for the past week. Turns out they have no clue who i am and were just bored. Then again maybe it is someone i know and they are just messing with my fragile mind. Bastards !!!

Anyway they are nuts and now well blocked. On the flip side seeing as she/he/it could find me i thought i might start plugging in some names from school and got a hit. Someone i have not see or spoken to in like 5 years or something. The world is small after all.

Survivor update: I concur with the vote this time round. If that was trying her best then i hate to see what happens if she is not interested. Hey look at me i make a good impression of a wet fish (should have smacked her with a frozen fish)

RPG: Rooke is BACK wooohoooo and he kicks ass, yeah orge smackdown. Of course it was pointed out to me that if the giant had actually closed i would have been squishy like wood glue. For now just call me ARTILLERY, big honking explosive lighting bolt artillery. I do owe all this to maximise & twin spell. They are the casbaar nevermind rocking it. Yeah so they use slots higher up, maxed out magic missile still doing 25 damage (When they hit of course, bloody displacer beasts with the blinkyness) ooooooo and twinned orb of electricity, lessor. Gimme 8d8 or something silly like that. 3 of those and it is smarting.*

Happy weekend all =) I think i am going to go buy a PS2

*This does not give the DM the right to smack me back to last thursday. There will be no reaping of whirlwinds or any other such movie cliched nonsense.

Went home over the weekend to give my cat some excercise. The guy weighs like 12 kilos or something at the moment. So i chased him around a bit >)

Also got a wicked roast at Candice's birthday supper. Very cool!!!!!!! Thanks to all the chefs, cooks and chief bottle washers.

Anyone gonna sign up for SA survivor?
