ZooTV

Zooropa ... a bluer kind of white.

So. First day of the new term. Comfort me. That's a good Pacifier song. Anyway, yes, new term, and for this, I am sad. I had schoolwork to do over the holidays, and guess what? Not much got done. But I see this as perfectly fair and reasonable. Quite simply, I am (or was) on holidays. I am not doing work whilst I'm on holidays. It's just not going to happen. Do I care that I have an exam second day back? Nope, because it lasts four lessons and two of them are next week. What's more, it's writing fiction, an interior monologue, so I can just make up drivel and get by with something good. I have FOUR lessons, there's utterly nothing to be worried about. Especially seeing I already have the criteria sheet and I can take the book and 100 words of notes in with me. Talk about painfully easy.

Speaking of writing, I've decided I'm going to get published before the QCS Tests come Hell or high water. Seeing they're on August 31 and September 1 (oooh, twenty years to the day since some cool U2 concerts in NZ), I don't have a tremendous amount of time, but it's still enough. I need to find a publication to be published in and fast. I was a member of the Queensland Writer's Centre, but that didn't help much, and I think most people in the writing world are negatively weird anyway. The only really good thing I got out of that subscription was the superb article that turned me against Harry Potter for purely literary reasons. But I'm getting beside the point. I've suddenly been hit by a burst of writing desire because I want to prove to myself that I've still got 'it', and for once I have topics. I'm going to talk to Mrs Hugo today about it at school - she's the only English teacher I have any respect for left (I am incensed that I was not even considered for any help to further my writing ability, ESPECIALLY SEEING I'M THE TOP DAMN ENGLISH STUDENT).

I need some help from those of you opposed to WWJD - I've gotten myself into a debate about it and I seem to be thoroughly unable to formulate any persuasive arguments against WWJD. Help?

I have officially determined U2 videos are good for your health. If I got hyped up every day like I do to them when I put them on, I think I'd get fit rather quick.

Aaaaachtung, y'all. The following is officially on your to-buy list, in order;
1. Under A Blood Red Sky: Red Rocks 1983
2. Rattle And Hum
3. ZooTV Live In Sydney 1993
4. Popmart Live From Mexico City 1997
5. Either of the Elevation 2001 DVDs (Boston or Slane)

I fear my computer is rather unwell. Uh-oh. Need to burn U2 archive. I've got ... well over forty gigs of U2. Hmm. I have 120GB, only 40GB left, and most of the used space contains U2 files. So what does that say?
