And that's why it was the best summer ever

I’m a full time student, which means I do less than twenty hours of class each week and get three months off over summer. God bless you, Australian edu-ma-cation system. Anyhoo, sadly, my three months has come to an end and I’m back into my gruelling study schedule next week. So come with me as we take a moment to look back at some of the things I did this summer...
  • Learned that at 568 pages in hardcover, Paul Kelly’s How to Make Gravy is not an appropriate sized book to read in the bath.

  • Played so much Commander Keen that my right wrist started to make a clicking noise, which goes nicely with the buggered joints in my thumbs from the excessive amount of Nintendo I played as a child.

  • Wrapped a small plastic pig in tin foil so he looked like an astronaut.

  • Rearranged my bedroom and decided that packing it up was too hard and I am therefore never moving out of that room. Ever.

  • Remembered my Neopets password from 2001.

  • Became a multi-millionaire on Neopets.

  • Rewatched every episode of Black Books.

  • Rewatched every episode of Father Ted.

  • Didn’t rewatch every episode of 30 Rock, but watched enough to develop an odd and unexpected crush on Alec Baldwin. His eyes are, like, really blue 'n' that.

  • Realised I needed to go outside more.

  • Went outside and got sunburnt.

  • Went back inside and acknowledged that I should have known better than to go outside.

  • Tried to justify the amount of books I was buying online by reading each and every one of them - only 6 to go, y'all!

  • Started work at 6am for five days in a row and learned about the effects of sleep depravation. Was also verbally abused by a regular customer for playing Whitesnake at 7:30 in the morning. I believe that Whitesnake is good at any hour. He doesn't agree.

  • Broke my new years resolution to not type my Facebook password when trying to sign into Blogger.

  • Went to the Boxing Day sales for the first and hopefully last time.

  • Became worryingly good at Tetris.

  • Realised my Mr Potato Head obsession was out of control when my co-workers made me this:

  • Learned that if you put a single chicken wing in the microwave for more than 20 seconds it will explode all over your microwave.

  • Cleaned the microwave.

That's an awesome Mr Potatoe head. It's sweet that your co-workers know you so well :D
