WARNING: LONG ASS WHINE AHEAD. CHECK YOUR BRAKES...
Hey folks. Wow, three updates in one week? you lucky devils!
Gundam Astray Gold Frame Amatsu is still awaiting construction.
Secondly, Happy St. Paddys Day for yesterday, and today happens to be Mothers Day here in England. And I'm stuck at work all day…
Well, its been a annoying week, to be honest. As I said on Wednesday, I had left Luna at the Honda Dealers to get her wheel replaced cuz the old one wasn’t attached properly and was damaged. Well, they called and said she was ready, so I got mum to drive me up there so I could pick Luna up. Everything looked ok, so I set off down the road. Two minutes later: FLAT TYRE. >.<# The valve hadn’t been attached properly by whoever fitted the tyre to the new wheel so every time it the tyre completed one revolution, it was letting some air out. Luckily, as I was sitting by the side of the road wondering what to do, one of the Honda mechanics passed by on his Bike and recognised Luna. So he stopped, found out what was wrong, went back to the Honda Dealer, got them to bring the Van out, we then loaded Luna into the Van, went BACK to the Honda Dealers and they refitted a new valve into the tyre and made sure it was fitted properly this time.
Sheesh. Ever since that puncture, its been one pain in the ass after another with Luna’s rear wheel. Luckily I didn’t have to pay to get any of it fixed (apart from the puncture itself) and now Luna’s back to full health. UNFORTUNATLY, her road tax is due at the end of the month and cuz Luna is now three years old, it means that she needs to have an MOT Road Worthiness Certificate in order to be re-taxed. This means I got to book her in for an MOT Test… ARSE! And of course, if there’s anything wrong with her, I have to get it fixed. Everything should be fine though, she does get serviced pretty regularly. But its just a pain trying to get it all sorted. >.< bleah…
On the positive side, I’ve been offered a guaranteed placement on Camp America. Huzzah! So I will definitely be going to America this summer. Just don’t know where or when.
And that’s another week in the life of Brian…uhm…Darke. Yeah…
I don’t have the next part of VIRTUE ready yet unfortunately. I was out most of Saturday. I went to a Kung Fu session at lunch, then afterwards wandered around Bromley for a bit. On my travels I managed to pick up the Read Or Die soundtrack and the Trigun soundtrack. w00t! I also picked up two sweet Ghost Rider graphic novels…which I read within an hour of getting home. ^^;;; they were brilliant though!
Then I spent the rest of the afternoon on this:
It’s not as good as I wanted it to be, but it’s a helluva lot better than my first two tries, and I'm happy with it. ^^ I also got to try out my new pencil set. I'm quite pleased with how they worked out.
The dress Rei is wearing is the same one she wears in Vol 3 of the “Evangelion: Angelic Days” manga, which is set in an alternate Eva universe. Rei is a lot more outgoing and lively in this manga, which makes her very cute. ^//^
Well, that’s it from me today. I will see y’all on Wednesday, hopefully with more VIRTUE for y’all.
