December is here

Wow, in the first week of December already, only 21 days to Christmas. How time flies now a days. Well a few weeks ago, I reported that it was getting colder here, but for some reason, it is warming up again... and also I read in the news paper that global warming is in fact making the UK colder, instead of warmer. I was like what the f*** when I read this, but this is due to the warm waters we usually get from the south of the Atlantic Ocean and apparently over the 12 years, the temperature of this warm water is getting colder. The reason for this is that Antarctica is melting and causing the water to rise and therefore heat is dispersed. Something like that, not actually too sure.

Going away from this, on Thursday I had dinner in this Japanese restaurant because it was, Kiet's birthday. It was an all you can eat thing, and there was a conveyer belt and you just take the plates you want to eat. I was quite disappointing. I only ate like 12-15 plates, and unlike some people who were greedy enough to take like 25 plates.

Yesterday, I went to see, Ben performed in his church band in Oxford Street. I have to say that I enjoyed myself a lot watching them play, and I was quite happy I recognised some of the songs playing, since it was kinda rocky type music... which is MY music.. hehe.. but yeah it was a brilliant performance all round last night.. and I actually was thinking of going to the Franz Ferdinand concert on the same night with Jo, but was glad that I came to this, even though the Franz Ferdinand concert would also be awesome.

Also, a few week a go, I gave that link for the JCB song by Nizlopi, well it is in the running for Christmas number 1. 5 to 1 on to get it. I think it should be Christmas number 1 man, so please buy it everyone... such a cool song man, and if anyone missed the link on the page for the video, you can catch it here.

Oh yeah, I found these two interesting things on the net. The first one was about the TV licence. Ok, people who don't live in the UK, everyone who owns a TV has to pay a TV licence in order to watch TV... basically it is because the BBC, which is one of the main channels are publicly funded, so basically it is like a tax. Anyway, some naughty people haven't been paying up. And when the TV licence officers found out, the people who didn't pay try to give excuses... and their excuses are, well I quote.

"The Dogs are the only ones who watch TV"

"I don't need a TV licence because I only watch Australian soaps and as far as I'm aware you don't need a licence in Australia"

The TV had been broken since "my daughter tried to feed the kittens on Rolf's Animal Hospital"

A mother said, "He stopped making payments as he's gone off with someone he met on the Internet"

What are thses people playing at, as if anyone is gonna believe that. Anyway, on to the second thing I found. Apparently the war in Iraq has created a bored game, similar to Monopoly called, Battle to Baghdad: The Fight For Freedom. I was shock when I first saw this, and it doesn't get better. First, you start of with 3000 trops and you have to make your way up to win the game. In the game, you get like chance cards in Monopoly. They are like, ""Captures!" declares one, rewarding the player with 300 extra men for the ensnaring of Saddam Hussein." and "Some soldiers are found guilty of unlawful treatment and inhumane acts of violence towards Iraqi prisoners. You lose 100 troops.". What the hell is going on man. Ok, it is kinda funny, but I can't believe anybody will actually make this game. It is just sickening... but actually hehe quite funny... And with that I think I better sign off, since I have work to do and exams are only around the corner... so cya guys latter.
