1, 2, 3, 4, I Declare a Nerf War!

This is a little sad. This post will actually be the last one I make while living where I am right now. I’m going back home today until September, providing I get a decent enough degree and can work in order to build up funds so I can move back to Preston. But yeah, I could pine on about how I’m going to miss things, but as I said, all being well I’ll be back in a few months, so…yeah.

The main thing I want to talk about today is my Nerf gun. I’ve actually had it for a while, but for some reason, I’ve never got round to actually talking about it. I bought it as a treat back last year when I got my America/Canada journal back (I’ve got no idea where I put it either- I know I wrote quite a lot of popular-culture-soaked, tangent-using entries, and should I find it, I’ll stick some on here)- I didn’t want to spend a huge amount- the Nerf guns can be expensive once you move away from the small handguns- but I found one in the reduced section of the toy store.

This one.

Yeah- it’s pretty big. And pretty good. Except it jams ALL THE TIME- the darts always seem to get caught somewhere inside it and it invariably ends with taking it apart to pick it out. Also, it’s not good to aim with- in fact, it’s dire. Then again, it’s a machine gun, not a sniper rifle. I’ve been practicing with it- shooting cans off the top of my wardrobe.

But it gets better. Yesterday I bought something else- something that takes the idea of playing with Nerf guns (I know, I’m 21. I know, I should get a job. I KNOW- JUST LET ME HAVE MY FUN!) to a brand-new level of awesome.

Glow-in-the-dark darts.

Now these shouldn’t have excited me as much as they have, but the mere idea of glow-in-the-dark makes ANYTHING better. Except animals. Biological testing on animals isn’t right. Just saying.

But yeah, hopefully I’ll get a job while I’m at home, something to occupy my time and earn some money. With luck, might go to the Edinburgh Fringe in August too- free time and money depending, of course.

On a tangent, whatever happened to the ‘drill sergeant’ from the Super Soaker adverts in the 1990s? I miss him.

Oh yeah- After a solid hour’s (as apposed to a liquid hour?) thought, I’ve redone my ‘All-Time Top Wrestlers’ list. It’s been expanded from 15 to 20, I’ve removed some, added some in and generally changed the order. It feels more definitive now.

And that’s pretty much it from me for today. I’ll keep this blog going while I’m at home, but I can’t promise the same level of action and suspense usually found on here. But I’ll give it a shot.
