eggs over easy

I've googled myself (sounds painful, doesn't it?), and the only blooming reference to me within the first three pages on Google (I frankly have better things to do with my time than to look through all 524,000 hits) is to my appalling performance at BUSA archery a few years back. Now I have reason to not want to have to relive the memory of this event - it was my first competition back after many years of injury, but half way through my back gave out totally, and I mean totally. The five hour journey back from Edinburgh is a thankful blur of pain-meds and being unfolded from the minibus at the end by sympathetic team mates. It took over a year and extensive physio to recover from that particular competition. On top of that, the day before the comp I had just split with the then SO. Looking back, not such a big deal, but at the time I was most definitely NOT a happy bunny.

Why, do you ask, was I googling myself in the first place? Well, it has just been borne home to me the fact that anyone can view this blog
*points to the comment on the mini me post* (I am 90% certain that Jackson B as an individual is unknown to me. If I am wrong... my bad.)
So, I thought, what information can the curious out there garner about me from google? Thankfully, the answer to this question is "not a frelling thing" other than that I am an abysmal archer, I am a rather successful poet/author, and that I died aged 36 in a small village in Essex. Other random things attributed to my namesakes that exist out there (for yes, they were named after me!) were just too random, or plain dull, to stick in my sieve like mind.

There was something else I wanted to share with y'all, but I meant what I said just now, brain-injured goldfish have nothing on me.

*waves at people, both new and old, goes to watch Equilibrium because why not, and frankly the pressure to be funny/amusing is starting to get to me :P*

There is no pressure to be funny or amusing. Just be yourself.

And no, you don't know me. But I didn't google you. Someone musta used the next blog button at the top of your blog to come to my site, so your site showed up as an entry point on my sitemeter.

When this happens, I generally check out the site - you never know what you might find...

I liked your site. I was drunk and couldn't think of anything more witty to write than 'I like this.' To the point, anyway...

Sorry if it freaked you out!

And what is Equilibrium?

Equilibrium is a rather silly film starting Christian Bale and... other people I can't remember off the top of my head. Post WW3, everyone has their emotions supressed by a drug 'Proxium', so there will be no more war, crime, etc, but also no love and fun and the like. Christian Bale's character is a 'Gramatron Cleric' whose task it is to chase down 'sense offenders' and other dastardly folk who refuse to take their proxium.

As I said, rather silly, but a few snazzy if unbelievable fight scenes to liven things up.

*is officially no longer freaked*

Welcome welcome :)

Ahhh I've seen that, but the Japanese title is different - its called "Rebellion" over here. Best to watch it on DVD and choose the menu option to watch only the fight scenes. Which do, indeed, rock.

Not a bad movie. hehehe. I like my name. There's only a page of hits when you google it and only one actually applies to me.

My immediate family's names are all on there.

*remembers Cas texting him at the time of said archery injury*

And, I agree, Equilibrium is a good movie. :)

Long time no talk, so greetings, and did I? That entire period is a happy haze of pain meds. Who knows what I did!

Greetings. :) You did - you were sending me text messages on the coach on the way back... although it's probably a tough choice whether you were trying to forget the pain or talking to me.... ;)
