A Good Day

These seem to be a rarity for me lately. I've been lonely, busy and stressed. But today was a good day.

My Dad turned 60 today. He's upset that the day is nearly over - he enjoyed himself, which is probably what makes this such a good day.

It's been a lazy day the most we've done is gone out for dinner. My sister picked a lovely French restaurant in Battersea called "Gazette". The menu itself is printed daily in newspaper form with today's date and headlines as the specials. I was impressed by it, but then again it doesn't take much. The service was excellent and the food was wonderful.

After that we went to my cousin's house - she doesn't live too far away. My sister's boyfriend and I got lost along the way, but we soon got back on track. My cousin had bought cake for my Dad and asked me to inspire her so she could write his card. We had cake and drank tea, then my other cousin turned up. She had her husband and two girls with her. Whenever I see them I can't believe how grown up and tall they are. I never really understood when adults said I'd grown a lot, but looking at them, I finally got it. My sister hadn't seen them for many years so it was a shock to her.

I sat down with the girls and we played card games, I saw them about 3 months ago maybe, and taught them 'Speed'. The eldest, who's 13, managed to beat me today. I still had an edge over the younger sister though. As a competitive person, I put the win down to being rusty, since I haven't played with my friends for a while - something I need to get on, but we've all been so busy lately.

Anyway, I suppose today is one of those days much needed days. The kind of day where you get perspective and understanding and everything makes sense. I've been stressed out over university, and I still am, but I know what's really important to me, and I know I'm lucky. I have amazing people in my life. As my family. As my friends. I think I need to be more appreciative of all that and take the rest in my stride.

For everyone who's added to the good in my day today, I love you. To everyone that will add to the good in my life, I love you too.

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

Marvel and Sony Reach Agreement For Spiderman

A quick glimpse into our archive would reveal we here at Don't Laugh, People are fans of comic books and their respective movies. I do not often divulge into a battle of DC vs. Marvel vs. the others, because I typically enjoy plenty from all (but yes, I do think Marvel is the best for art and for stories). However, "the last 24 hours have been really exciting."* Kudos to you if you didn't need to look up that quote... damn you if you did. *Dr. Okun - Independence Day

It was announced by many sources late last night/early this morning, that Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures had finally reached an agreement for their partnership in order to introduce Spiderman into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (where The Avengers live). Marvel will reportedly allow Sony to retain Spiderman's rights to let Amy Pascal produce films in the title, but she will be aided by Marvel's top man, Kevin Feige, in her endeavors. Feige will be involved in Spiderman's 2017 standalone fil…
