Today, I almost did something potentially lifechanging and really really important. It was like..."whoa"

But then I didn't.

Tuesday, May 30, 2006

Yes. My maths lecturer is very important because he knows all about "Halin's theorem for cubic graphs on an annulus", "Planar triangulations which quadrangulate other surfaces" and "Obstructions to directed embeddings of Eulerian digraphs in the plane".

I didn't even know quadrangulate was a word.

Why is flossing so hard?! I can't seem to co-ordinate with the mirror and stuff where the floss should go argh
This morning when I was leaving the house, I opened the front door and watched my bus (yes, MY bus) run past.

Luckily the next bus is cool enough to get to uni by 10 so I didn't miss anything.


Does nobody else find it poignant/insightful that the Science building is the freaking ugliest?


I can't eat anything till like 2pm. Dentist oh noes


Hey Sonny, hows your crit lol

How is it that Dennis, who has had like less than six hours sleep in the last two days, manages to play his solos with superb accuracy today at the Academy of Strings concert?!

I have a theory.

It is only a theory, but...

I think he is a superhero.

Today I resewed (sown? sowered?!) a button that was half-coming off my shirt. It was very exciting, I suck at doing knots but I kinda pulled at it a few times and didn't seem like it was gonna come off, so I feel good.

Where would I be without google!

OSCAR ( Out of School Care and Recreation ) did a review on our afterschool care programme today. The lady said she was impressed, so yay!

Nicola's leaving :(

[hey sonny we should get her something]

Lol today I wore the damn "Matrix coat" again. All the kids were like "matrix" and so was steve :o

Can't do holiday programme. I'm not here.
Okay some guy I don't know on MSN just gave me a link to this video he made.

LOL -_- i can't help thinking of the Star Wars kid (google it)

and for your viewing pleasure:
Really nice bus lady today. Oh man gotta love them when they're nice and stuff. Dropped me off exactly at my house :D


hrm. hrm hrm. rhmrmrhrmr,.

(there was another one but it was boring and lame)
Yesterday, this is what my mouth looked like.


Today, I did this.

($5,000) <--- $80

Next week, it will look like this.

($5,080) <-- $200


The Dental service at Auckland University. Well, apparently it is heavily discounted. I'd hate to have to pay for normal service, then. It cost $40 bucks for me to bite these things and have him point some scifi x-ray thingy at my cheeks, and another $40 for the guy to stick a mirror and blow air at my gums.

Apparently, my gums suck cause they started bleeding. -_-

I have a hole. I need a filling. It will cost like, $120.


The main reason I went is cause the back of my teeth (ie where my wisdom teeth will eventually be (or not)) was sore-ish. He did x-ray. He says they are there. He says they will appear like within the year. Apparently they are dangerous. I don't have enough room for them. They can impact into other teeth, cause infection through partial gum exposure, or what sounds worst, create cysts.

I must say. For intelligent design, this design isn't very intelligent.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang - A- (maybe A) Self-referential, humorous, witty, sharp, sarcastic. Brillant movie!


Stravinsky's Rite of Spring - love the powerful sections with the driving percussion etc. I don't see how this caused a riot (cause it isn't that far from what Holst was writing but i dunno) and it's rather tame compared to what you can get nowadays, what with your microtones and stuff. Very exciting piece.
Lol so kyute
I just had the largest freaking battle with the WORST adware/spyware I've EVER come across. I think I've won. But. Can't be sure.

All this for Sibelius 4 lol that'll learn me to randomly click things.

My laptop got hit with this:

Ridiculously vicious. It hides itself in the process listing (so ctrl alt del won't show it up), you can't delete it, it calls itself system critical so it still runs in windows safe mode...vicious vicious bastard. I eventually found an uninstaller from the guys who made it, but you never know what else they put on there.

At least Adaware (google it) says I don't have anything atm so...hopefully it'll stay that way. I'm just glad I don't have to re-format my laptop.

Note to self: you have a Dental Appointment in Uni on Mon 22nd May 2006 at 11 am (after your Harmony and Analysis lecture.)
lol from the

I am going to be Vesper Lind (the new Bond love interest). After the success of certain films this year, they have decided to "shake things up" this time around. And so Bond will be gay. I play Vesper Lind, a German spy who loves trip-hop and raves. I assassinate my victims by forcing them to drink the fluid inside of glow-sticks. James and I meet when our hands accidentally touch during a "Licensed to Kill" seminar in Dusseldorf. We were both reaching for an "Ain't Misbehavin" CD that kills an enemy after he/she listens to the Act One curtain closer. Not very effective as a means of assassination since the target would have to make it through some really mediocre numbers in the first act, and like I said, it only works on "he/she's" which aren't very common in the spy business outside of Thailand. Can't say much more it's all very hush-hush...

Tee hee Zach Braff is krazy. It's a pity half of it is like "oh go do this this is cool im a walking advert"

my teeth hurt.

what is going on here

Wow. Macintoshes are very very sleet and sneeky. I have been using the Architecture Computer labs (cause Music doesn't have their own) and they have a Mac lab and its so cool. It's just... a screen...the rest of the computer is inside it?! And it took me forever to find NetLogin...but. I did it eventually. Wasted a lot of time playing around with GarageBand (which I think I will try and, um, get) but yeah it's awesome and I also figured out how to use iTunes to copy things to mp3 and stuff and firefox looks really sleek and all the text is anti-aliased and stuff and whoa my blog looks smooth and so does yours and yours and this is a really long run on sentence it was a good day today yeah i was like in burning sun and that was very nice but if it stays cloudless like this it will be a very cold night hmm i want to sleep but i dunno when im getting home arck.

In the movie The Transporter 2, there is this bit where the guy drives the car and flips it in the air, unhooks a bomb from the bottom of his car, and lands safely. Needless to say, after seeing that sequence, I was just like "wtf no way". (Transporter 2 also has the most ridiculous lousy CG plane ever but that's a whole another story)

In Mission Impossible 3, there are like 20 of those moments.

Well, I only paid $5 so. It was good. And Simon Pegg is legend lol. And Tom Cruise can't pronounce Zhou kai but he can pronounce xiao xin.

Auckland weather is brilliant. Sunny to thunderstorm to hail to muggy to sunny in the space of 10 minutes. I'm glad I dressed for coldness even though it looked like a nice day.

Three assignments and 36 hours later, I've finally gotten through the day. You'd think I'd have learnt by now, wouldn't you.

The two words I never EVER want to fucking hear from you, especially if you aren't exactly a paragon of maturity, are "grow up".

Why the hell should I? Because you said so? All of a sudden you can throw experience and learning into two childish words? Why should I grow up on YOUR fucking time-frame? It's not like you control the basic laws of physics, or have any *real* control over me.

I admit. I am immature. SO WHAT. What are you going to do about it, kill me? Go ahead, we're all destined to die anyway.

Growing up is so fucking overrated. Where are the damn advantages? Am I going to grow wings? No. I'm not going to get, x-ray vision. I stand to lose a lot. I like being innocent and naive and curious and ignorant and imaginative. I've probably never had any of those, BUT I'll do what I want, on MY timeframe. Selfish?

Most definitely.

Do I care?

Most definitely not.

Don't you for one second take away the only thing we truly have; our individuality. I'll do my share of growing whenever the hell I feel like it, no sooner just because it suits YOU. If it suits me to suit you, sure. I'd do anything for you.

...if it doesn't, sucks to be you.

I realise this a very cynical and "immature post", mr immature omg im so immature well SO WHAT. FUCK. It's MY post. I didn't drag your candy ass over to the screen and plonk you down. You clicked. It's your fault.

It's not my fault I'm not grown up or mature. It's yours for expecting me to be.

After a long and dreary boring day, full of neighbour chords, hidden classes and MediaTracker, it is 4:48pm.

It is raining.

I am not looking forward to the bus ride home. I woke up way too early. Slept too late. Whatever. You know when you sit there and you know you should be working on, say, your assignments which are crazily due soon...but you don't do them?

Yeah. That happened to me this entire morning. I'm sorry Ajita. I tried to work on the Assignment I did, but helping Thomas made me feel better cause y'know I actually know what he's doing (CS101 harrr)

And then I look at my own CS assignment and balk. Yuck.

I have to download a 100mb file when I get home.

I'm sick of University. If you crazy psycho uni people are tracking my keystrokes, now you know the truth. I hate you to the core. I pay lots of money, to be annoyed.

Although I must admit, Java is rather interesting.

Fiona McAlpine, is another matter (if she was a programming language, I'd call her Logo (haha nerdy joke, WIKIPEDIA)

But would I pay all that money to do stuff I don't want to do when I'm lazy?

Maybe. Maybe not.

I think maybe the point of University is not really about the learning, but the experience.

No, not the stupid "wild parties and fraternities" like they do across the Atlantic, which are probably exaggerated anyway (movie vision is not truth).

The experience of sitting awkwardly in class when a tutor asks a really obvious question, so obvious that nobody can be bothered answering - that's legend.

But would you pay thousands?


You can obviously tell this post was created because I got kicked out of the computer tutorial lab after the tutorial finished (which is fair enough) and I moved to the info commons where I can't do any of that programmy stuff and really, I could have gone to the CS labs but then I would have to transfer all the files when I get home anyway and WHEN I GET HOME I HAVE TO RECORD MUSIC AND DO ASSIGNMENT AND DOWNLOAD A 100MB FILE. I'm just wasting time until 5pm.

Hey look. It's 4:54pm.
Sorry, I got the link wrong. It's or whatever - swap the l and the y. As to what it is, it allows you to load up the models and characters and NPCs etc in FFXI and move them around and view them on screen, if you needed to do that, you know, to draw them or something. You can also load it up for animations and record with Fraps (google it) and do something like the FFXI AMC Opera thing (google it)


Kingdom Hearts II is so legend. [spoilers] About the only letdown thus far is that they didn't seem to be able to get the rights to the Lion King music and as such a lot of the cutscenes are really bland and poo - just goes to show you the power of music :) Sora is really cute as a tiger..cub? Is that the right word? And then apparently there is some old-school as Disney movie called Tron or something, must wiki it sometime, and then there's Pirates of the Carribean...the graphics are rather spectacular. It's amusing to see Sora and his friends plus the heartness in all their pastely bright cartoon-style right next to a realistic 3d world with more muted colours, and pirates. Also, the graphics engine itself has obviously had an overhaul - manages to support 1000 characters on screen, and there's a nice "distancing" effect that's more noticable in this second installment. (is it mip mapping? I forget)

The addition of the "reaction command" has been a great improvement in the gameplay too, mainly in terms of being visually impressive and adding freshness to battles. Unique monsters have unique reactions and counters Sora can use against them, mostly to his (huge) advantage - eg monsters that shoot projectiles can be grabbed and used against the enemy etc.

Gummy ship system has been improved too, just gotta see it compared to the first to know what I mean - lots more 3-d feel. Yeah.

And limits! Drive! Both are cool combat bonuses. I can see where some people get annoyed that the game is too easy - there are lots of tools at your disposal to fight your way through the game, reaction commands, Drive (where Sora combines with Donald or Goofy or both to become stronger), Limit (where Sora and the unique party member from the world (eg Jack Sparrow or Mulan) team up for special combination attacks), Summons (where the non-Sora party members get replaced by a summoned ally (eg Chicken Little, Stitch or Genie) etc etc

Costume design for the FF characters is pretty nice. I like the clean textures of Cloud and Tifa's new costumes, and y'know how it is with black. :D

KH2. It's great. If you enjoyed the first, you'll like the second. has Jack Skellington in a Christmas suit. Yay.


Dear (a.k.a Mr Angry)

Who are you? What the hell? How did you stumble across my blog? Do you randomly visit blogs? Isn't that kind of creepy? What are you, some sort of word or thought vampire? What are the odds you will grace us with your presence/presents again? How's the weather in FREAKING AUSTRALIA?

Love, Henry

[For those confused check comments]


Sitting next to some freaky guy in the info commons. Ack. He is laughing. Arr. A moment ago he was listening to the backstreet boys and laughing ;_;


Haha, only one person has gotten it right so far. I'm so mean and secretive etc that you will never know the right answers. Even if you got it right, I won't tell you, cause I'm a downright bastard. Relish in the knowledge! (or perhaps your sandwich)

Okay now I'm just wasting time in the info commons typing really loudly on these clacky keyboards.

Final anecdote:

Did you know someone got told off at the Tamaki Campus computer labs by a demonstrator for typing too loudly? They got yelled at and told to "change their typing ways" ahahahhaaaaaaaaaaaahaha.

Good luck trying to type silent and swift on any keyboard.

These were my new year's resolutions in 2004:

1. Study really hard for 7th Form.
2. Get a girlfriend.
3. Be so totally awesome and cool that people will shatter into ice cubes if they can't handle the cool.
4. Eat healthy and stay healthy.
In my eyes:

I've managed to hold one true.
Two are irrelevant.
One I'm still working on.


Which is which?

You decide.
Today what I learned in CS225 CAN BE APPLIED TO STREET SWEEPERs.

Why can't 01:02:03 04/05/06 happen next century?

So it was a late night bus ride, right...cause 6.00pm is night-time, now. There was this lady facing the otherway on those otherway seats (you know the one). Anyway. I thought she was sleeping (like a lot of people on the bus) because her eyes were closed. But then, about halfway through bus ride I looked toward the floor and saw something furry. And then, I looked at it. And I figured out it was a guide dog, for the lady siting the other way. ANYWAY my point is isn't it totally amazing how they can get around o_O Like. It should be a celebration or something, I know I certainly can't do it with my eyes closed. The blind lady even knew exactly when to press the stop button, and when to get off... either she was counting the number of times the doors opened, or she knows the left-right formation of the route, forwards AND back.

Lol I got a whopping 90% exam 10% coursework for CS225 now. XD

Okay, if you even remotely know me, you'll know where I live. And where I live, pretty much across the road, is a small row of shops. At the current time, there is a cafe/restaurant, a takeaway, and a dairy. So my dad finished the last of the milk, so he gave me $3.00 to buy some more..

I walk across the road, and grab the milk from the fridge, head up to the counter, and the first thing the owner says to me is "Do you speak chinese?" This kinda threw me off guard. It's like, "what?". But I do. So I say I do. And then it turns out, the person at the counter (in front of me) is the owner of the cafe/restaurant. (Me william and my dad had lunch there yesterday. Sonny, you'll know this lady. >.> this is the restaurant I feel sorry for) Long story short I ended up being a translator, the owner of the cafe was giving information on her shop which she is going to sell (which I hope she gets a good price for because I feel really sorry for businesses that don't do stellar). It's selling for $48,000 and an agent fee of $7,800. She also gave info on her weekly takings...which I won't tell cause it's like, anti-privacy, but they weren't too bad.

BUT THE WHOLE POINT which I really wanna make is that the diary owner and I agreed that she should tell whoever ends up buying that store should TURN IT INTO A BAKERY. Finally, WE MIGHT GET A BAKERY. IT WILL BE RIGHT NEXT DOOR, pretty much. THAT WOULD ROCK MY SOCKS. (but apparently some indian guy is like, planning to open a restaurant or something.)

I only went to buy milk...
I have been offered a payrise of 4.5% by the University for my work as a CS101 marker.
How many special people change?
How many lives are living strange?
Where were you while we were getting high?
Slowly walking down the hall
Faster than a cannonball
Where were you while we were getting high?
Someday you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova in the sky
Someday you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova
A champagne supernova in the sky
Wake up the dawn and ask her why
A dreamer dreams, she never dies
Wipe that tear away now from your eye
Slowly walking down the hall
Faster than a cannonball
Where were you while we were getting high?
Someday you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova in the sky
Someday you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova
A champagne supernova
'Cuz we don't believe
That they're gonna get away from the summer
But you and I will never die
The world's still spinning around we don't know why
