Well, due to a very good friend of mine, I'm actually in a fair bit of a Harry Potter mood at the moment. I'm the first to admit that I'm no fanboy about it, but, well, I did grow up with it, and I loved it to pieces. Anyway, it's inspired me to sit down and read the books again. Alas, but there is one problem with that: I don't have all of the books! I've got the first 3-4, but my older sister used to buy the books, and thus took them with her when she moved out. I'll have to coax her to let me borrow them at some point. Meanwhile, I'm on the hunt for a really awesome set that I can buy and display on my bookshelf. My first preference would be an awesome, leatherbound set, but after much searching I don't believe it exists, or if it does in VERY limited quantities. Alas, I shall keep searching, but one day I'll treat myself and buy the whole collection. No prizes for guessing who my favourite character is. The Potions Master himself, Professor Snape. Too awesome for words, and Alan Rickman nailed the depiction perfectly in the movies.

My day was pretty standard today, just some work and plodding through the motions. However, soon to change as I dive headlong in to the exam timetable for Term 2. It never stops.

Also saw that the new Transformers game Fall of Cybertron released a new trailer today. Looks awesome as always:



Such a crying shame that it isn't being released on the PC, but them's the breaks! I'll see if I can catch the story on Youtube once it's released.

Anyway, on a closing note I've got myself a new favourite shirt. I've technically had this shirt for a while, but I've finally slimmed down enough to a point where it doesn't look ridiculous on me:



Looks and feels awesome :>!

So guys, hope people actually bother to read my blog... which I don't think so for some reason... anyway point is this is a general note and entry so that everyone knows I'm going on a holiday for a week.

Where to you ask? The state above me funnily enough, Queensland. Essentially like where I live but amazingly it has even more Asians, more sand, more freaky deaky weather and probably not enough tea to satisfy me.

So anyway, I pretty much dislike national holidays. There's normally one thing which redeems it, while I spend the rest of it being overly analytical. In contrast, I can't wait to go to England for six weeks.

Getting to the point, what is going to make this one survivable? Well, my dad's boss gave us $1700 spending money for the week. So as long as I get money splashed on me each day, I should be content enough not to destroy the fun of the other lesser thinking members of my family.

$10 says I start before I get off the plane though.

So yeah, negative blog from me. :( Pretty down that Revocation's new album isn't due until October and the song I heard from it is pretty sweet which is annoying.

Oh, and expect a review of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban for the Gamecube when I get back.
