24.10.2004 – Sunday 24 October – Satanism, Gauls & Arguments
- • It is a sad day when satanic rituals are officially endorsed onboard royal navy vessels – according to the BBC, “The British Armed Forces has officially recognised its first registered Satanist, according to a newspaper report”. How anyone, religious or not, can believe this type of behaviour, basically officially recognising “evil” as “acceptable”, is in any way normal or acceptable is beyond me.
- • Today has been another really hot day. I spent the morning in bed asleep, and the evening at uni. I met up with Flashpix and Insomnix, two indomitable Gauls still holding out against the house drawing, team project and sprinkler-mapping invaders that have overtaken all the other labs. We did much great COMP2801 teamwork, which can be summarised roughly as “Hey yeah, so we better do stuff, but Coles shuts soon and I haven’t had breakfast yet so I’ll see you later ok? Yeah, I’ll do some work tonight and we can compare tomorrow. Cool, see you then”. There was also something I was supposed to do tonight, so that we can compare it tomorrow, but I can’t remember what it is so I shan’t be doing it.
- • I was going to go to bed several times, but the ongoing, and now rather vindictive and melodramatic, argument has kept me awake, so I’m running my backups onto the new hard drive.
- • All seems quiet now, and my backup has less than half a minute to go, so I might try to get some sleep.
