10. Fully-stocked tables of guns and ammo are unlikely to be conveniently placed wherever you find yourself at the start of an attack of the infected. I guess the upcoming Left 4 Dead 2 (ooh, scary) is a little more prepared in that sense, seeing how they do incorporate melee weapons into the game more should your gun prove itself worthless. Although really, if a gun isn't doing anything to a zombie running straight for me, a frying pan backed up by my strength probably won't either.

09. What makes a safe room safe? If the infected can break down doors, then I guess you're going to have to find a room with a pretty strong door to serve as your safe room. But once you're in, what are the odds of that room having a second strong door leading out to a new area? Once the infected claw their way through all that metal, you're screwed.

08. Assuming you find yourself a safe room with two strong doors that the infected can't get through (not quickly, anyway), what are the odds of it being a room with the real life equivalent of medpacks, pills, guns and piles of ammunition?

07. Speaking of ammunition, can anyone reload a gun as fast as the survivors need to in order to stay ahead of the horde? I assume any survivors would be pretty shaken up over the whole situation, so I can't imagine that anyone would be reloading their gun all too fast.

06. A teamkill is a teamkill. Once you shoot down whoever happens to jump in front of you, they're gone! None of this "damn it Francis that was mean now help me up" crap. This would screw me over because I am the worst teamkiller ever.

05. Does anyone even know how to use a medpack? What's inside them? Bandages or whatever, I guess. Either way it's probably going to involve sitting down and actually opening the medpack instead of waving your arms around vaguely in front of your injured comrade.

04. Even pistols will eventually run out of ammo.

03. Where are all these bottles of pills coming from? And how come in L4D you apparently take the whole bottle at once? Maybe there's no infected attack and they're all just high off prescription meds. In the event of me being a survivor, I think I'd be staying away from the random bottles of pills strewn about the streets. Just to be on the safe side.

02. Against all odds, let's say you make it to some final area of your zombierun. An abandoned townhouse, or a airport runway, who knows! Once you get there you just better cross all of your fingers and toes that you have some way to contact the military or someone outside of your city or else all that running was for nothing and you really may as well have just collected the pills and got high before the zombies clawed out your eyeballs.

I am falling back on my bad habit of using song lyrics for blog titles.

Nothing to say really, just felt like I should update. :/ 1am, need to shower, college at 9. Whateveerrrrr.

Oh hello, now it's 2:30am and instead of getting ready for tomorrow (shower/SLEEP, you know, that's sometimes good) I made a weird new layout instead with hard to read text. Goodbye.

I love me some Pokedads. Especially Squirtdad. What a cool guy.

I'm working on another layout. Don't know if or when I'll finish it.

I had something else to say but I forgot.

Saturday, July 18, 2009

I got bored in the early hours and put together a new layout for here. Still a few things to mess around with (the huge white space at the top that I can't seem to get rid of - I might have to make some header image to cover it) but it's a huge step up from the last layout I made from scratch.

I might be working again in about 9 hours and I need to sleep and auugghh fml.

I'm cleaning out my music library. There's a lot on there that I haven't listened to in ages, and whenever it comes up on shuffle I just skip right over it, so there's really no point keeping it there. My iPod really needs a cleanup too. It's hit 4gb and it won't hold anymore songs. I'd like an iPod Touch for my birthday but until then, I'm stuck with the 4gb.

My blog has comments now! Hooray. Unfortunately I forgot to add them to the layout I made yesterday, so if anyone is actually going to use it, they won't have comments unless they add them in themselves. The page I used to add them in is here. I'd really like to start another layout, but I'm so uncreative. All my layouts usually end up the same - small font, pretty small container, boring colours and in the top-left corner. Usually image-free too because I'm not the greatest with images, especially not when they need to be integrated into a layout around them. I didn't pay enough attention in HTML last semester.

I ended up going out tonight with a couple of my friends to The Bunker, an internet cafe in the city. We started at the Cyber Lounge but the atmosphere was sort of.. cramped. And dark. And it was full of WoW nerds.

Also they didn't have Left 4 Dead, and that's what we wanted to play.

I had a friend working there, and he let us play Counterstrike for a while without charging us, but eventually we left to check out the two other net cafes in the area. The Bunker was just across from the Cyber Room, and the atmosphere was a lot nicer. The walls were brick too, so that was pretty cool. It was laid out nicer, and we all got computers next to each other, so that helped. But most important, it had L4D! We spent about one and a half hours on the Dead Air campaign on advanced. I was playing as Bill and my friends were Louis and Francis, and for the first few minutes we had Zoey on A.I. Someone joined but left pretty fast, and shortly after that another guy joined and played through the rest of the campaign with us. Unfortunately we never got around to finishing. We got stuck on the stupid final. The furthest we got was the gas tank at 3/4 full, but then a second tank came along and incapacitated all of us. I wanted to keep going but my friends were already quitting.

It was already about 8:30pm by then. Me and one of my friends had made plans to bleach/dye the underside of my hair tonight, but by the time we went and ate something and waited forever in the line, it was 9pm, and all the chemists and pharmacies were closed.

After that I just went home. And that was my night! How exciting.


PING PONG DOOR. I want this.

My first completely custom Blogger layout is now complete. It's very simple, but it works, and I like it.

The layout can be found here.

Click for larger image.

I forgot to take a screenshot with an active link, rollover links are in caps and have a green background, and a resize cursor.

Feel free to edit the layout to your liking, but please do not remove the link in the credits to my blog.

I'm working on another blog layout. I'm not sure if I'll use it once it's done, but I'll upload the HTML here in case anyone else would want to use it. It's pretty simple, but it beats the default ones at least.

Now I have to go back and keep trying to get hold of my friends to see if we can go to an internet cafe in the city and play Left 4 Dead tonight.

I love linking to other peoples' blogs/sites/Twitters/whatevers. :3 If you would like me to link to your site in my sidebar (and a link back would be nice!) you can leave a comment on this blog or email me at!
