We're all going on a summer holiday ... or at least I am

School's over for the year. *lets out obligatory loud cheer*

But much more importantly, I HAVE MY NEW COMPUTER. Eeee, 'tis grand. It's so quiet compared to the noisy sod that is my old computer, it's so FAST, and I love the flat screen (no, it's not one of those really skinny flat screens, it's a flat screen with the normal large back - the skinny ones would've set us back another few hundred dollars). Oh my, it's so bloody fantastic. I heart it madly. I'm just downloading MSN at the moment, and then I'll get AIM. Unfortunately, this computer doesn't have Microsoft Office, but that's easily fixed - I'll get a copy off Sam. Ick, this is the one part I don't like, having to reload things. But WOW, this computer is bloody amazing! Just wish I had a fast Internet connection to go with it ... and I want to know what the Popmart the 'Fn' key is on my keyboard.

Got my Maths C results back today, and they were the definition of irony. How is it that a guy who did rather poorly on Maths B (which is supposed to be EASIER) can get one of the highest (if not the highest) mark in Maths C? Heh, I was thrilled. Maths C is the one I care more about, anyway.

I'm sure gummi snakes have nicotine or some other addictive substance in them. I really shouldn't have the bag of them in my room ... mmm, gummi snake ...

English writing task today was dead easy. Had fun designing U2 setlists in the spare time I had at the end. At the start, I was peeved to find out we couldn't write a short story, but as it turns out, I think the article I wrote would be better than any story I could've done. Funny thing is, Pat did a short story. Yep. Even when the teacher said you couldn't. Even when a lot of people let out sighs and comments of disgust. Even when the teacher stood his ground and said you couldn't do one. Pat's a daft one. Then we got into an argument after the exam ... that was weird to say the least.

I'm really starting to dislike worship music. The worship songs they sung on Christmas chapel, quite frankly, STANK. "I will read my Bible and pray/I will follow You all day/All day/All day now/All day" and so on. These people need a good dose of

11 O'clock Tick Tock (5 June 1983, Red Rocks, Denver)

11 O'clock Tick Tock!

It's cold outside
It gets so hot in here
And the boys and girls collide
To the music in my ear
I hear the children crying
And I know it's time to go
I hear the children crying
Take me home
Uh!

A painted face
And I know we haven't long
We thought that we had the answers
It was the questions we had wrong
I hear the children crying
And I know it's time to go
I hear the children crying
Take me home

Say so, say so
Say so, say so
Two, three, four

La-lo-la-lo, la-lo-la-lo, la-lo-lo
La-la-lo-lo-la-lo, la-lo-la-lo, la-lo-lo
Sing with me!
La-lo, la-lo-la-lo, la-lo-lo
La-la-lo-lo-la-lo, la-lo-lo-lo, la-lo

Say so, say so
Say so, say so
Something
Hold on
Hold on tightly
Hold on
Hold on tightly

Pick it up!

Will you dance with me?
Dance with me!


Call out Your name
Call out in shame
Call out Your name
Call out!
Call out, you better call out

Thank you
Goodnight


Gloria

Oh, gloria, oh

Two, three four!

Sing it!
Get down
Get up
Up, up

I try to sing this song
I, I try to stand up
But I can’t find my feet
I try, I try to speak up
But only in You I’m complete

Gloria
In te domine
Gloria
Exultate
Gloria, gloria
Oh Lord, loosen my lips

I try to sing this song
I, I try to get in
But I can’t find the door
The door is open
You’re standing there
You let me in

Gloria
In te domine
Gloria
Exultate
Oh Lord, if I had anything
Anything at all, I’d give it to You
I’d give it to You

Gloria
In te domine
Gloria, gloria
Gloria
In te domine
Gloria, gloria
Gloria
Miserere
Gloria, gloria
Gloria
In te domine
Gloria, gloria

With Or Without You (19 December 1987, Tempe, Arizona)

See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side
I wait for you
Sleight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait without you
With or without you
With or without you

Through the storm we reach the shore
You give it all but I want more
And I’m waiting for you
With or without you
With or without you, oh
I can’t live with or without you
Yeah, yeah

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away

My hands are tied
My body bruised, she got me with
Nothing to win and nothing left to lose
And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away
With or without you
With or without you, oh
I can’t live with or without you

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh-oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh

With or without you
With or without you, oh
I can’t live with or without you
With or without you

Hoo, hoo-hoo-oo
Hoo, hoo-hoo-oo

Thank you.

Yeah, we’ll shine like stars in the summer night
We’ll shine like stars in the winter night
One heart
One hope
One love
With or without you
With or without you, oh
I can’t live with or without you
With or without you

Fire

Falling, falling
The sun is burning black
Falling, falling
It’s beating on my back
With a fire
Fire

Falling, falling
The moon is running red
Falling, falling
It’s pulling me instead
With a fire
Fire

But there’s a fire inside
When I’m falling over
There’s a fire in me
When I call out
I built a fire
I’m going home

Falling, falling
The stars are falling down
Falling, falling
They knock me to the ground
With a fire
Fire

But there’s a fire inside
When I’m falling over
There’s a fire in me
When I call out
There’s a fire inside
When I’m falling over
I feel the fire
I’m going home

Falling, falling
Falling, falling Now THAT is quality lyricism, and there's plenty more where that came from. I'm very tempted to try to form a band to play Gloria and 11 O'clock Tick Tock on chapel. Exit would make a nice addition, too.
