Went to the Game On exhibition at the Barbican yesterday. It was good, but not worth £11. We'd expected a lot more than 150 computer games thrown together in a room with minimal explanation - a lot more things to look at and read, rather than just game after game after game. Most of the games I wanted to play were ones we already have at home, which says something, I'm not sure what. Tim and Peter aren't coming round today because they're cleaning their house. I can't do the same, though I tried on Friday, because our vacuum cleaner is resolutely broken. Okay, it's not actually blowing out instead of sucking, it's simply failing to suck - but I like that line!
Richard is busy painting his paintball gun - you'd have thought this was a waste of time, but it's all part of his 1337 X-Treme sports dude image, apparently. Anyone who has ever met Richard or seen a photo of him will know just how un-1337 X-Treme sports he is. I've just decided that in lieu of cleaning the house, I should clean up my hard drive - it's down to 450 MB free, due to ridiculously large amounts of Sims downloads - and I'll need something like 950MB free for the new Sims expansion pack that's coming out in a month or so.
Hmm, well - it's taken me nearly 2 hours to write this entry (because I keep being interrupted), and I'm feeling much less lonely than I was earlier - but I suppose I'll leave the mood set as it was at the beginning because my social bar is still way too low :)
