The seven! Read this. Or else!

Azrael and Mia tagged me to write up seven random things about myself. Since reading seven regular things about a person can be like watching a plant grow, I'll try and make it interesting.

1) I love - Reading. Anything and everything. As my first post says, even the label off my shirt. Sometimes even gets me dangerous looks when I try to read whats printed on some womens t-shirts, where the text just happens to be over a certain...organ(s). Favourites include Terry Pratchett, Tom Clancy, Andy McNab & Steven King etc.

2) Hate - Mac zealots. Scum of the earth in my book. God created this earth so man and his Windows/Linux PC could live happily ever after. Not so that some hippie could start a company that makes products for hillbillys. See no. 4) Stupid people.

3) Love - Games. Favourites include the GTA series and FPS's like Half life, COD and FarCry. But unfortunately, due to my current video card, instead of a smooth display of scenery and trees in Crysis, I see something more like a slideshow of trees. Anyone want to donate 100$ in aid of the Buy-A-Videocard-for-The Jester fund?

4) Hate - Stupid people. Regular dumb people are fine, but I'm talking about dumbasses. Those "revolutionary" teenagers, with the Che t-shirts and stuff, who get a vacant look in their faces when asked who Guevara was. Also people who think they know what they're talking about, but all they know can be inscribed on the head of a pin.

5) Love - Music. All sorts of music. Everything from Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture (a la "V for Vendetta") to Shinedown's Heroes. Mostly depends on my mood. Happy (Rock/Rap), Neutral (Classical/Hip hop), Angry/Worked Up (Rock/Classic "You will Cuuurse! the day you did not dooo, all that the PHANTOM asked of you!!!") or just suicidal ("Hit me baby one more time!").

6) Out of Love/Hate stuff. So here goes- I used to play rugger. Played the sport since 8th grade. Stopped in the 12th. Haven't really much to show for it other than a plate and some certificates. A plate you ask? Yes, since some ancestor of ours probably thought it would be funny to give runners up in a tournament plates. What are we supposed to do with them? Play Frisbee? Mine sits on a shelf gathering various kinds of things that like brass.

7) Ahhh... The final fact - I hate all forms of messages and dull activities which exist thanks to the joblessness of some people and circulate around the net, in e-mail, blog comments and "Write seven things about yourself" requests... You people should be rounded up and nuked. I deliver a verdict of guilty on the charge of severe wastage of internet bandwidth, due to which my torrents are slowed down. ;-) :-D ;-)


Seven more people? Well, to be honest, I don't know seven people to send it to who haven't already been tagged. I'll try and send it to someone else. Sorry if I'm breaking a centuries old tradition...

Why ;( ? Didn't you see all the ;-) 's and the ;-D ?

@Azrael
Let's see how your shelters stand against my nukes of horror! Bring it on! ;-)

Don't like games? Ye gods! Thy heart shall not know true hapiness till many a Hun is slayed in Age of Empires or nary a zombie roams the streets in Half Life!

My God! you spelled Tchaikovsky correctly. woah. Thankfully we Wordpress users are more mature and do not engage in these frivolous message passing activities.

the_jester said...

Wordpress users? Yeah right....
Btw, since your current playlist includes Justin Timberlake, MCR and Justin Timberlake, I don't expect you to understand what I'm talking about. Fool... ;-)

Yes, as fact no. 7 states, I hate all other activities, but this one seemd fun. Go crawl back under the humourless rock you came out of.

Mia said...

Ah now I see them. :P

Believe this or not I used to be addicted to games, introduced by the offspring. Not anymore. Had to make a conscious decision to stop the habit.

I'd more easily have believed that suraaj quit being a ballerina.

the_jester said...

Hurt a man with glasses?
1) Man? Yeah right
2) Hurt? Yes. Seriously injure
3) Glasses? So thats what you call those weird plastic things on your eyes...
