Alan Probe, Amateur Surgeon

// June 6th, 2008 // 190 Comments » // Internets, Obsessions

Just in time for my exams, adult swim have released the third installment of their insanely fun online game, Amateur Surgeon. There is something immensely satisfying about cutting someone’s stomach open with a pizza cutter and then stapling and cauterising them back together again… give it a go!

[UPDATE:] My god, the first level is insanely hard! I’ve killed poor Trent about ten times… those scorpions… argh

RavenBlack Is Cool

Just been cruising through RavenBlack’s site, which has numerous excellent things upon it, the most interesting of which is a Vampires game. Click here to be bitten by me, Emily! Mmmm, yummy.

And this is another cool thing, Mr Insulty:

Who are you?

Zeus Reigns Again

// September 5th, 2001 // Comments Off // Internets, Science

Researchers have used genetic linkage analysis to show a 95% probability that a particular region on chromosome four correlates to long lifespan in humans. Importantly this region appears to have a strong influence on the rate of ageing. Read about it at: 91201. Good news for me as all my grandparents bar one are still alive…

Set up the computer at home last night – very exciting to once again play Zeus and build my little Ancient Greek empire. Then this morning I was so busy showing Jan Mr Winkle on the computer that I missed my bus! Ah the dangers of Mr Winkle obsession. Just had a lunch time haircut, pretty radical eh? The hairdresser had really long nails though and I’m sure that I have suffered a couple of injuries to my scalp and forehead. The price of beauty!

Another great game from Electrotank is Air Hockey – play it ’till you drop! And not quite so graphically appealing but certainly very addictive – Slime Volleyball.

Moving House

// August 27th, 2001 // 293 Comments » // Life

Sorry for the relative quiet the last few days. I was off work with yucky cold thing on Thursday and Friday. And of course I do all my home page updates from work (wouldn’t you?). Had an eventful weekend as we finally moved into the new abode. Jan, I and our intrepid assistants Jake, Anthony and Michel spent Friday night lugging rather weighty objects into trucks and back out again. Four green metal cabinets were the chief offenders – it took 4 people to lift them into the truck. However we did well and many thanks to all involved.

The house is now our home and we have settled in well – except for crap hot water cylinder and very chilly tiles of a morning. Still painting the front bedroom so we are sleeping in the living room at present. Ex is loving it for some reason and seems much happier than at Hugo St. The cats are in confinement for a week while they settle. Bootsy is so used to trauma now that he is completely adjusted but Tinsel still seems a little bit freaked! We put a deposit on a new kitchen as we just couldn’t live with the old one so that will hopefully be going in in six weeks or so. Also looking at getting gas put on and a new floor in the back half of the house. Anyway it will definitely be keeping us distracted until Little Jem arrives! Still it is a vast improvement on the old place, much more spacious.

The carpet is going down at Hugo Street today – apparently the carpet layer was a real dickhead though so we’ll have to see how it turns out. New doors are coming for there on Thursday and then we will be just about ready to rent the sucker out.

I am still playing Junkbot, only 3 levels now on which I don’t have a gold award. Workmate Joel has mastered ALL the levels and is ranking around 17th in the world. Alas I am on about 118th, still it’s an achievement.

Latest position on Junkbot – Employee of the Year! Oh joy. Received for over 40 Gold Awards. I love this game. I really, really love it.

Painting is on track – got both the bedrooms undercoated yesterday with Jake’s help. And let me tell you, they come up bloody well! So at least the front half of the house will be decent. Had to postpone the kitchen person as poor Jan had to take one of her clients to hospital so ended up working from 6am to 10pm – not good for a heavily preggie girl!

We have been peering around the new house over the weekend. We are pretty happy with it! A bit of painting to do this week, some termite treatment and a new kitchen. But it is gonna be good. Hooray!

Got an email today from our darling niece Orgy aka Brenda. She was desperate to have her name dropped on this very popular page so here it is honey! (I will reply to your email today too, I promise) Send us a piccie of yourselves and I will put it up ;)

Thanks to Joe for this very addictive game! If you had Lego as a child, you’ll love this one…

Pay By The Day

Well, looks like the house is not going through till Thursday or Friday. Which means we might be up for daily penalties as we are now two weeks past the agreed settlement date. Woe! If anyone has some effective calming techniques please let me know.

Some good links for today:

  • Scaletrix simulator – takes me back to when I was 10 – racing was my fave weekend activity as Dad had a huge track set up in his loft. Go Dad!
  • Dog Stare – a very silly game indeed
  • Dub Selector – makin de rhythm flow
  • Mariah Carey’s ramblings on her website before they carted her off to the institution
  • Strange Links For The Day

    Haven’t heard any bad news about the house – does this mean it’s actually going through at 2:30 this afternoon? Am trying not to get too excited as the constant postponements are giving me ulcers. We’ll soon know!

    Just got my weekly email from popbitch – highly recommended for all you twisted gossipmongers. As always, it included some rather interesting links which I will include here!
