I recieved some awards from my good pal, Laura, over at Zoidberg Tales. Check it out, she posts some fantastic pictures and great TV commentary which is awesome even if you don't watch the shows (I don't really watch any of them (Doctor Who is on at the same time as TAYG!) but I still love reading what she writes).
To tell you the truth, I'm a little confused about one of these awards that I recieved. This one here;

While the humane award is an awesome award to recieve, Laura, are you sure I deserve it?
According to my Encarta dictionary, Humane is basically:

a. Compassionate

b. Involving minimal pain

c. with an emphasis on respect for other peoples views

Well, if it's b. I'm glad you guys don't suffer too much when you read my blog. Otherwise, I'm cool to learn I'm compassionate. C's a little iffy because I mainly respect other peoples views by not speaking my own (and I was about to complain about the terrible state the NSW government is in, too).
So basically I don't understand this award at all and in my opinion I think it should be awarded to Nobel peace prize winners. So I'll be glad to accept (it's always been my dream to win a peace prize).
My other award makes me feel all warm and fuzzy;

This award makes more sense.

I also recieved these same awards from Zellakate. Check out her amazing book reviews on her blog. After reading what she writes you really have to restrain yourself from going out and buying all the books she suggests. If I had enough money I'd buy them all.

Zella also awarded me this award:

So I'm feeling massively special today. :)

To accept the Humane and Sunshine awards I need to pass them on to my favourite bloggers. To accept the Over the Top award I need to answer the flollowing questions with one word answers and then pass it on to five bloggers who are also over the top.

Well, I'll answer the questions first:

Your cell phone: Old
Your hair: mutant
Your mother: Life-line
Your father: somewhere
Your favorite food: mouthwatering
Your dream last night: ...
Your favorite drink: non-alcoholic
Your dream goal: imperfection
What room are you in: study
Your hobby: leap-frog
Your fear: Wrists
Where do you see yourself in six years: Crypt
Where were you last night: couch
Something you aren't: interested
Muffins: choc-chip?!
Wish list item: tophat
Where did you grow up: unknown
Last thing you did: internet
What are you wearing: leg-brace
Your TV: elsewhere
Your pets:
Your friends: hiding
Your life: screwed
Your mood: latent
Missing someone: Nii-san!
Vehicle: Totalled
Something you aren't wearing: waistcoat :(
Your favorite store: Boarders
Your favorite color: Ultramarine!
When was the last time you laughed: NEVER!
Last time you cried: Hospital
Your best friend: misplaced
One place you go to over and over: bed
Facebook: mandatory
Favorite place to eat: kitchen

And after all that I must admit that I don't think I follow five blogs...

Or at least I don't follow five that haven't already recieved these awards.

I'm going to give the Over the Top award to Laura at Zoidberg Tales and Lucy at Amusing Seth (I've only just started reading her, but very much enjoying), and also to O'Malley at The Battle of Yonkers if, and only IF, he starts blogging again (his zombie survival plans keep you prepared and his other posts are hilarious).

O'Malley will also be getting the other two awards, because I like him.

I would like to give these awards to Scott over at Ergo, but I believe he has already recieved them. But check out his blog anyway. I love it.

And that's finally it from me, thank you girls for the awards and congratulations to my award winners! Cheers!

Today, my computer has been confiscated so I write this from my iPod. My iPod would have been confiscated too except that I use it to time my physio exercises.
My mum decided to steal and hide my computer because she thinks I spend too much time reading manga and not enough time doing said physio exercises. I blame midday movies, not manga. (But how can she take it on a Thursday and a Friday? That's when the new Naruto, Bleach and One Piece come out! And Skip Beat is due out on the weekend!)
Oh well. I still have my iPod so I do have a way around it but I don't think I'll be getting on Sparklife *bursts out in tears*.
if mum was really into getting me off the Internet she should turn of the modem for the wifi. It's on the ground so I can't reach it without being totally stranded (I can't put any weight on my broken leg so standing back up is not an option. Although my friend has already suggested using a Jack to lift myself off the ground).
But that's where I'm at. I may not yet be stranded on the floor, under a table, trying to reach the modem, but I am stranded, housebound, without my computer. So no manga, no Sparklife and no writing that story I was working on.
I guess the only option is to do my physio and win mum's trust back.

My Life According to Rise Against

Okay, so my friend did this in a note on Facebook for U2 and told me I had to try it. Her U2 one was totally amazing and I didn't have a hope matching that, expecially when there was just one question that I couldn't answer when I tried with AFI. But I changed to Rise Against and was suprisingly sucessful. So check it out:

Using only song names from ONE ARTIST, cleverly answer these questions. Pass it on to 10 people you like and include me. You can't use the band I used. Try not to repeat a song title. It's a lot harder than you think! Re-post as "my life according to (band name)."

Artist: Rise Against

Are you a male or female: Boy's No Good

Describe yourself: Like the Angel

How do you feel: Under the Knife

Where do you currently live: Whereabouts Unknown

If you could go anywhere, where would you go: Anywhere but Here

Your favourite form of transportation: Paper Wings

Your best friend is: Savior

You and your best friends are: Worth Dying For

What's the weather like: Dancing for Rain

Favourite time of day: Halfway There

If your life was a TV show, what would it be called: The Art of Losing

What is life to you: Historia Calamitatum (uh... it means the history of my calamities in case you were wondering)

Your relationship: Audience of One

Your fear: Weight of Time

What is the best advice you have to give: Sometimes Selling Out is Giving In

Thought for the Day: Remains of Summer Memories

How would you like to die: Chamber in the Cartridge

My soul's present condition: Everchanging

My motto: Rumours of My Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

You should try it yourself. Once you get the right band it's pretty easy (unless you're my brother who tried at least four bands before finally getting Parkway Drive to work for him). It's almost like problem solving but with music so it's heaps of fun (and heaps frustrating). Enjoy.

the Shopping List

Well mum went out hunting for provisions today and told me to write a shopping list. For some reason she didn't buy anything on my list. I'm still not sure why, perhaps you can help me. Here's my shopping list:
  • Ice cream
  • Chocolate
  • Ninja Turtle costume
  • Marshmallows
  • Strawberries
  • Frozen yogurt
  • the Life of Brian on DVD
  • Chocolate sprinkles
  • Transformer stickers (so I can mark all my electronics as Auto-Bots)
  • Batman colouring book
  • Skittles
  • Powerpuff Girls themed yoyo
  • Doritos
  • Honey Jumbles
  • Omnitrix
  • Sailormoon pencil tin

I just don't see why she didn't get me anything.
