View Full Version : What have you screwed up today?
Tue, 10th Aug '04, 10:56pm
After a whole day of coding, I decided to let my sister surf the net and get out for a walk. I also needed to sort out a couple of things in my mind.
I didn't go far before I saw a cute girl coming from the opposite direction. Drop-dead pretty and even tall but still looking somehow young, in the alarming way. I pulled off my signature trick - smiling at her, making her smile back and then making her turn her head in my direction when passing by. Don't ask me why, but I love doing that.
First I seemed to have had a pleasant encounter, but it didn't take me long to realise I screwed up badly. Etiquette took the better of me. You know, dark evenings, girls and strangers. That doesn't go. And imagine asking her out, or her phone number or whatever such in some dark place in that dark evening, my being a man and a stranger. Especially considering I was blatantly heading fast in the exact opposite direction, so how would that look if I rotated 180 degrees? Everything would be too damn obvious.
So says my reasonable self. Still, I haven't felt so badly for ages. It was a pitiable screw up. If anyone asked my advice about doing something like that, I wouldn't let him hear the end of it.
So what have *you* screwed up today? Share your story.

then making her turn her head in my direction when passing by How did you do that? - grab her by the head and twist her neck around? :p
Anyway, I burned my toast this morning. I hate it when that happens. :xx:

I plated lots of bacteria last night, and no colonies this morning. Not pleased.

Bought Apocalyptica for the p.c. It was only £8 and I didn't know anything about it, it looked like it might pass some time when bored. It actually had alot of potential. Yet instead it turned out to be MAJOR suckage. Crapola.
I should have just bought another Hellboy graphic novel...

I procrastinated my paper-round so long I had to do it in the streaming afternoon rain.
It was great weather all morning :doh:

I had a dream that I had a gender change (don't ask) and when I woke up I sat down to pee...

Too many In-Battle saves playing Vandal Hearts seems to have wiped the entire Memory Card. Including years worth of Tekken 3, months worth of a fourth round through Smackdown 2 and all my Metal Gear Solid/MGS Special Missions. :doh: :bang:

I've up at my moms place visiting for a few days and so I told her I would help her with a few computer problems she was having. (She's not very good with internet stuff) Anyway, she had an old MSN account she hadn't used in a long time and I thought I would bring it back into use before it disappeared forever. She also lives long distance and its cheaper to talk on messenger than phone. I was sure that I had gotten into her address recently but for some reason I kept trying and trying and couldn't get in. I ended up creating her a whole new account and even downloading the new messenger program which took a long time on a dial-up connection. When I finished I realized that her old address was still active! I had just typed it as msn.com instead of hotmail.com. Duhhh I'm so swift today.

Today I continued my now 2 day procastrination of my exam on the 26th. I probably shouldn't have done that, as stress will be the endresult of it.

I usually screw things up for others, ask Faragon about lunch in an Italian restaurant and buying snacks at the supermarket :) I don't think Faragon has ever returned...
I had a chat with an attractive young woman in the train. At some point she asked me how old I thought she was. She was six years older then I thought. 'Am I that childish?' Whatever you think about women, it never seems to be okay.

I seem to get a lot of gay guys doing that looking and smiling thing at me, I really don't like it and I don't like when women do it either. It really pisses me off. :toofar:

Not today, but still a screw up. I installed Crusaders of Might and Magic on my brothers computer, and now it's stuck in 16 colour mode with 640x480 pixels, and no matter what I do it won't change! Gah!
