Its time I came out of the closet.
Not that closet, you silly people!
My Harry Potter Closet. Why it is that howie doesn’t like Harry potter? Why is it that Howie won’t read the books or watch any of the movies?
People often say to me “why don’t you like Harry potter” And normally I answer with some sort of vibey uncommitted comment like “I just don’t like it” I’m anti potter”
Well the real reasons, is that I really don’t like fantasy stories, wizards and dark lords and spells and witches and all that. It really gives me the creeps. Its not that I’m scared I think its more that its just not something I enjoy. I would even go as far as saying I think all that stuff is evil. I think it’s a bit different for other people, its not a “I’m Christian and I know that harry potter is evil” It more that I just personally cant stand fantasy especially if it has spells and witches and wizards and stuff like that. I know plenty of Christians who love Harry Potter. I’m not quite sure on their stance with all this wizardry stuff. For me it’s a no no.
Lots of people say it just a story. And sure it is just a story, but from this story lots of dodgy stuff has happened. Like in department stores across Australia after the release of harry potter there was witches and stuff in the childrens sections, with kids being able to make spells and read tarots and stuff. Not good in my opinion.
I really don’t like that sort of stuff. I even struggled with the Lord of The rings. I watched the first one but that’s all I saw and I didn’t like it.
Sorry everyone but its really not my scene, I and I wish it wasn’t yours either but you can watch and read what ever you want.
I’m not going to hate you if you like harry potter.
Well part of the reason why I havent blogged latley is because I couldnt find the login page. But now that I have found it i can b log again. The other reason is that I have been sick. Yesterday morning i woke up with the urge to vommit. So did, then i continued to vommit the day away, and diahrea aswell. Not a very pleasant day. Today there has ben no vommiting or diahrea but just very weak and a bit quizy in the stomach. I started eating again about 1 hour ago. jane made me som mashed potato. And lemonade has been good too.
Jen got sick too, chances are i gave it to her. sorry jen.
It really wasnt a good day yesterday.
today has ben much better but still not 100%
The only reasons Australia needs to be security conscious and scared of terrorism is because of the stupid Hooley Dooleys. I mean who out there doesn’t want the blow them up?
I found this in ryan’s archives.
“I was talking to Jane on the phone and I think Howie might be homosexual. He makes these odd noises and smells a bit like one. I can’t be sure of course. But homosexuals will pop up in the strangest of places. It’s just their kind. “

What a full few days, feeling pretty tired but its been a positive few days gallivanting around Sydney doing lots and lots of different stuff.
I thought I should blog, I’m almost falling off blog feed and we cant have that.
I’m not really all that sure what to blog about, I think my brain is to tired to think at all.
Hopefuly I’ll have a sleep in on Sunday.mmmm
Here are a few photos from the last few days.
Well i’m back from campsie, but i’mm off to campsie again tomorrow afternoon. Its quite a ling wayon the train. it takes about an hour and a half.
commy dinner was fun, we played vacumcleaner didgeridoo’s again.
and sung silly songs,
twas fun to the fun house.
I have decided i need a laptop. Yep! I need a laptop.
I Came down to campsie last night on the train, and because i still have the ibook from sydney west i was able to work on my newsletter on the train which was good. I arrived here and we had our athen meeting, then last night i stayed at Karen and john’s place. Now today i’m hanging out in the campsie office and i can keep working on newsletter and posh up the daytrip video and all blog and do all these fun things on the laptop. So handy just plonk it down steal the network cable out of a nearby computer and you’re set!
I think maybe i’m drifting towards beinga mac man. Sorry steve. But ibooks are kind of fun when they work and youy arnt under pressure to edit a video. Maybe someone should buy me a powerbook G4. that would be nice. If someone did buy me a powerbook G4 i would shake their hand and say thankyou and probably take them out to lunch too.
On another note, i remembered to put my pants on today.
Morning routine went well, I got up and had a shower. Went back into my room, layed on my bed for 10mins then packed my bag and put on a jacket. Walked upstairs and out of the top door. Beginging my journey up the the bush track.
It was freezing, something wasn’t right! Why was I so damn cold?
I looked down and realized I hadn’t put on my pants.
(I had boxers on, just not pants)
I really should blog properly again.
soory everyone for being such a slack blogger lately.
A conversation between me and jen after the marrige one.
HOWIE: So are you in love with me jen?
HOWIE: Are you lying?
(In all seriousness there is nothing going on, in case you were wondering)
my day didnt get all that much better, hannah was in a bad mood and poo’d her pants and poo’d in the shower. And I had a bad headache all afternoon and night.
I did get to spend time with my buddies which was nice.
turns out i also forgot the remote for the DVD player and a cheque that was on my desk.
I’m sure i have forgoten other stuff to day but i cant for the life of me remember what it was
Today has been the day of forgetfulness.
This morning I had a shower with the full intention of washing me hair, I got in the shower and put the shampoo in my hand and then rubbed over my body like shower gel before realising it was shampoo.
At work today I went to do the jacks shopping and jen met me in woolworths, she gave me some vouchers to use instead of money so i took them and put them in my pocket and remembered them asi was leaving westfield.
I took the shopping to jacks and thought i should take the DVD player to the office on my way back.
I got back tpo the office and remembered i had forgotten the DVD player.
Jen and i went up to jacks a bit later and i remembered it.
Back at the office jo kemp sent a message to my phone. I read it, then went off and did other stuff, helped jen and chatted to the otheres in the ofice, was probably a good 40mins before i remembered i didnt reply to jo’s message.
I replied as i was walking home, then once i was home o called jo on the home phone and whilst on the phone i realised i had forgotten to bring my wallet home its on my desk back at the office.
And its not just me. jen just messaged me to say that she forgot to take the vouchers back to woolies cause she was goingshopping again.
Scripture seminars were good, long, but good.
Karaoke at jacks was fun, and commy dinner was fun too.
The only problem that I have is that I’m so tired lately, I have a headache most of the time, some of my bones ache, and I cant keep my eyes open.
Shhh I’m fine.
