I have to stop being a glutton for punishment.
I signed up for a two-day filmmaking crash course (nine hours each day) which cost me almost $400.
That, of course, is not the story.
The story is that class started 9 o’clock this morning and I gave myself only two hours of sleep, plus a mild hangover.
Aftiel called us out of the blue (after a few years of MIA) and asked us to go drinking last night.
Cannot say no, right?
Roomful of Blues was half filled with gamers last night. Bet you didn’t know that many gamers are alcoholics.
I had a great time reminiscing the crazy times we spent in-game together. I laughed so hard all night I thought I was going burst an appendix.
It was also great meeting new people and sharing scandals about their WoW guild leader, while said guild leader sat in front of us and gave us murderous stares.
Incidentally, we discovered quite by chance that yesterday was Christina’s birthday. So Aftiel got her two flaming somethings to down, and then forced her to play five-ten with every single one of us, turn by turn, for three rounds. Loser had to drink one Aftiel-sized shot of Chivas on the rocks. We knocked down half a bottle within 20 minutes.
Christina was quite traumatised but she turned out to be quite the hustler, winning at most of the five-ten matches.
I don’t know who came up with the idea of causing death by alcohol for birthday peoples. Isn’t it oxymoronic to celebrate life by killing yourself?
So, anyway, attending a nine-hour crash course right after a drinking party is not a very good idea.
Not good at all.
Today’s class was funny and interesting, but I dozed off a few times (only for short bursts). Damn stupid lah… pay money go sleep.
But after tomorrow, I will be a certified Hollywood Film Institute graduate and boast of having Quentin Tarantino as a fellow alumni and be equipped to make a feature film and get it shown in cinemas within eight months (or so the course promises). Impressive or not??
I find it somewhat hilarious.
It’s possible, actually, but I don’t think I’ll do it. I’ll wait for the other students to do it and cast me in their films.
Today’s blog is very boring, I know. But I think I’m entitled to a self-indulgent pointless post once in a while. I’m so zombified I can’t think straight.
And I still have homework to do!! Which is to watch a Hollywood film. *lol* Some homework!
I miss WoW and EQ2 and DAoC and even SWG! Yeah, like anyone’s gonna care.
Have a great weekend, whatever’s left of it!

what? no pet? no summon? :-(
More death by alcohol @ Martell Death Match on 9 Feb.
Check the CowBoyBar for details!
Dov is a great teacher. I hope he manages to inspire you, just as he had inspired me two years ago.
Never understood where’s the “fun” in blowing money on tons of alcohol, drinking one’s self silly, feeling sick, retching all over the place and waking up next morning with a massive hang over. Oh well, to each his own.
Yeah!!! Party like there’s no tomorrow!!! Alright! :D
alcohol wasn’t a fun thing for me either.
hehe throwing up and getting hang over with sickly feelings…
Guess each one has his or her way of preference.
If I want, I want to have a death by Sweetness?!
drunk in ice creams and alot other sweet stuff.
people likes beer because of it taste(bitter). just like durian..
I think the fun lies in feeling happy and watching others make a fool of themselves. no one ever asked anyone to throw up. =p
great night shey! damn miss those times we used to hang out like crazy. hahah!
haha no wonder you were looking a little flushed when i saw you. :)
binary_0011: Heh, sorry. I haven’t finished editing my next hamster story… haven’t had time. It’s much easier and faster to cough out a rubbish post. lol.
And I don’t agree that durian is like beer. Durian may be bitter but it has a sweet fragrance under the bitterness. Beer is just bitter, lol.
JayWalk: Thanks for the invite!
Derrick: It’s fun to drink moderately. But the catch is that your friends will make you get to the point of retching and you can’t avoid that unless you don’t invite your friends, in which case you’d be better off just staying at home and staring sadly at the computer. :P
modchip: Haha. I guess you go to parties a lot…
Ashtar83: Woah. Death by Sweetness sounds sweet. It’s much cheaper too, I guess. Unless you insist on drowning in Godiva or the like.
Aftiel: Haha. You’re right. And I’m waiting for YOUR day to kena. Wahahah. Miss you, babe, and all the rest of them.
Rykarx: lol, was I flushed? I can’t remember. :P Anyway, it’s good to finally meet you. ;)
Qiaoyun , i meant why your guild leader never summon pet or mount at the pub. like that more 熱鬧 ma.
summon pet….throw in 3 banthas, 3 muloks? and some enrage rancors? lol
Hey, is the filmmaking course the one in late January? I think I kinda wanted to go for that too
Roomful has a strict “no pets” policy… except for the owner, who has a cute Yorkie.
binary_0011: Doh… :P We might be hard core gamers, but we can tell the difference between gaming life and real life. Hahaha.
Ashtar83: I prefer cute pets. You guys know there’s this limited edition pet panda in WoW? It comes with the collecter’s edition or pre-order edition game. It’s so super cute!!
skyler: Er… it was on the 19th and 20th Jan.
Mince Pye: Is that so? But you’re always allowed in.
I saw that one coming a mile away. :/
Anyway, master not around, so not considered “pet”. :P
Mince Pye: I love how you always allow yourself to get hit by my tables.
A pet is still a pet, wherever the master happens to be. :P
And that’s why this year, I am actually going to remember my birthday instead of culling liver cells and puffing cigars.
Vandalin: Good luck to you, man.
Ruok: Dov Simmons inspired you two years ago, eh? So WHERE IS YOUR FILM???!!! Hahaha. I want to be cast in it! :P
Drinking the night before and important class?
Reminds me of every freak’en day I was in college! I have no idea how I was able to get a Master of Fine Arts in Music. Frankly, I don’t even remember getting it.
