Like I just told Lollie, I feel like I've been mauled by Jesus. Lollie herself is still recovering from a nocturnal stairmaster attack, so she is displaying similar injuries.

It's all cause of our laser war on Saturday night. It was Lollie's bro's birthday, and after a whistlestop tour of Melbourne. I tried to do the impossible, and sorta got away with it.

After finishing work @ 8:00pm, I headed into the city to my mate Andy's farewell. He's leaving work cause he's going overseas, damn I'm gonna miss that guy. Now who am I going to harass at work? At least now with Andy gone, I no longer need to have an inferiority complex about my sideburns.

So after that, I brave the Punt Road traffic and head down to the corner hotel. I'm sorry, but it was all about Behind Crimson Eyes, a band Nick got me onto. They're sort of half way bewteen emo and hardcore. Maybe what Good Charlotte would be like if their balls finally dropped. Mind you, thought I was gonna get knifed, wearing a white hoodie in a sea of black.
Note to self: Wear only black to hardcore events.

So after that, it's just past midnite. I head on down to Fun City for Lollie's brother's birthday. Laser wars. It's ten past one by the time I get there (in Sunshine) and the constant Police presence compells me to lock my car. There's a huge clown mural in the mens room, but other than that, a pretty cool place. Smoking is allowed.

The Laser war itself was awesome! Got to run around like a maniac and pretend I was Corporal Hicks from Aliens. There was even a sideways jump while shooting. I tried my hardest to do it in slow motion. In our second game we got smart. Our team banded together to form a coalition against the red team. I guess I should call it a 'coalition of the willing'. I felt like I had joined the french resistance (something I've always wanted to do).

So bringing us back to now, yes, I feel like I've been mauled by Jesus, and he's used all his powers to beat me senseless and leave my lying by the curb. You know all those bits in the Bible about smiting your enemies?? Well consider me well and truly smoten.

Meanwhile next week brings us some interesting DVD releases, the least of which is the Special Edition of Alien Vs Predator. Damn you!!! Make me pay again for a DVD I bought now six months ago!!! I'm so angry I could vomit (yet strangely seduced by a second disc of special features).

I'm outta here. I'm starving. I'm going to eat. As Nick would say:

"I'm so hungry I could eat the arse off a low flying duck"

I think he wanted to eat the arse...

the end.

Hey, I remember Laser Wars.

The damm suits were heavy.

But it was a good game to play.

I was in Blue Team and unfortunately, we got mauled by red. So from my point of view ... I got mauled by the Devil.

:) ... hope you get to play again soon.
