Hey guys, merry Christmas to you all and a happy new year.
For Christmas, I got:
-My first bass guitar, and a bass amp.*
-A parka (chav coat for you Brits :P)
-Some DVDs, namely ones directed by Stanley Kubrick.**
-Some Ikea things to organize my desk.
-A pair of Nike high tops that my little brother bought me.
-Metal water bottle.
In terms of gifts, I bought:
-A Nike shirt and hat for my brother.
-Starbucks mugs and a set of scented candles for my mom.
-Assorted DVDs and an LCD screen cleaning kit for my dad.
*I'm all fired up about it, and consequently have been playing it most of today, with my dad on acoustic guitar.
**I'm looking forward to watching Dr. Strangelove. I just watched Barry Lyndon a few days ago, and that was one epic period film.
For the New Years I'm heading to Amsterdam for a few days (anyone here that lives in that area?). It's nice because I just turned 16 and I am not underage there... =)
Enjoy your holidays, gentlemen.
For I will consider my Cat Jeoffry.
For he is the servant of the Living God duly and daily serving him.
For at the first glance of the glory of God in the East he worships in his way.
For this is done by wreathing his body seven times round with elegant quickness.
For having done duty and received blessing he begins to consider himself.
For this he performs in ten degrees.
For first he looks upon his forepaws to see if they are clean.
For secondly he kicks up behind to clear away there.
For thirdly he works it upon stretch with the forepaws extended.
For fourthly he sharpens his paws by wood.
For fifthly he washes himself.
For sixthly he rolls upon wash.
For seventhly he fleas himself, that he may not be
interrupted upon the beat.
For eighthly he rubs himself against a post.
For ninthly he looks up for his instructions.
For tenthly he goes in quest of food.
For having consider'd God and himself he will consider his neighbour.
For if he meets another cat he will kiss her in kindness.
For when he takes his prey he plays with it to give it a chance.
For one mouse in seven escapes by his dallying.
For when his day's work is done his business more properly begins.
For he keeps the Lord's watch in the night against the adversary.
For he counteracts the powers of darkness by his electrical skin and glaring eyes.
For he counteracts the Devil, who is death, by brisking about the life.
For in his morning orisons he loves the sun and the sun loves him.
For he is of the tribe of Tiger.
For the Cherub Cat is a term of the Angel Tiger.
For he has the subtlety and hissing of a serpent, which in goodness he suppresses.
For he will not do destruction, if he is well-fed, neither will he spit without provocation.
For he purrs in thankfulness, when God tells him he's a good Cat.
For he is an instrument for the children to learn benevolence upon.
For every house is incomplete without him and a blessing is lacking in the spirit.
For the Lord commanded Moses concerning the cats at the departure of the Children of Israel from Egypt.
For every family had one cat at least in the bag.
For the English Cats are the best in Europe.
For he is the cleanest in the use of his forepaws of any quadruped.
For the dexterity of his defence is an instance of the love of God to him exceedingly.
For he is the quickest to his mark of any creature.
For he is tenacious of his point.
For he is a mixture of gravity and waggery.
For he knows that God is his Saviour.
For there is nothing sweeter than his peace when at rest.
For there is nothing brisker than his life when in motion.
For he is of the Lord's poor and so indeed is he called by
Poor Jeoffry! poor Jeoffry! the rat has bit thy throat.
For I bless the name of the Lord Jesus that Jeoffry is better.
For the divine spirit comes about his body to sustain it in complete cat.
For his tongue is exceeding pure so that it has in purity what it wants in music.
For he is docile and can learn certain things.
For he can set up with gravity which is patience upon approbation.
For by stroking of him I have found out electricity.
For I perceived God's light about him both wax and fire.
For the Electrical fire is the spiritual substance, which God sends from heaven to sustain the bodies both of man and beast.
For God has blessed him in the variety of his movements.
For, tho he cannot fly, he is an excellent clamberer.
For his motions upon the face of the earth are more than any other quadruped.
For he can tread to all the measures upon the music.
For he can swim for life.
For he can creep.
Just kidding. no hard feelings guys. It's been a while since my last blog, and I feel a lot better =)
In PE yesterday, a few friends and I were playing football in a new gym. I passed the ball in the air to a friend (a little too fast) who volleyed it and SMASHED this massive window. I was right under the shattered window, and a rain of glass shards fell right above me. I sprinted out of the way, half-knowing what was going on because of the deafening noise (it was surprisingly loud). Anyways, to make a long story short, it was hilarious and I fell over laughing.
So here are some songs to listen to, whether you've heard them before or not.
