Cold Turkey

Postby banana » Mon, 10 Oct 2005 10:04 pm

I tried to quit. The first week was surprisingly easy to get by despite a nagging sense of something not quite right. Write it off as change - afterall, things need getting used to.

Week 2 - I was getting edgy. Glared at random strangers on the PT, calling them dumbasses was strangely therapeutic. Nothing out of the ordinary though, strange anti-social behaviour has never been beyond me. It's the mark of genius they say.

Week 3 - The sweet sweet call of my dear friend has joined the party of other voices in my head. Abit louder than the rest but you'd expect enthusiasm from newbies.

Week 5 - My fingers are slightly jittery. It's probably psychosomatic, getting accustomed not going through the regular hand movements. Popping candies helped a little.

Week 7 - I've resorted to talking more than usual. Some things just have to be expelled to maintain a decent level of health. As usual no one understands genius.

Week 9 - Something is wrong with the Sun. It's taking a full week to set. I blame it on over population causing the planet to tilt off its axis. Thank god the governments of the world are doing their part to correct this problem.

Week 10 - It's horrible. I never want to go through that again. No one should. Luckily the staff at the centre called me up and said I'm good to go. Rushed down first thing in the morning to collect my effects.

























































Hallelujah! My laptop is fixed! WOOT!!

It's been 2000 years, time for a replay of the miracle.

Haha, welcome back! You were missed! Kimi even started a thread for you - People you miss from the forum.

Btw, you couldn't have gone for 10 weeks, it just seemed liked that, right? Anyway, looking forward to your rubbish once again. :P

Hey Banana, you absolute crazy person, welcome back. Yes, we DID miss you.

And who says you're not a genius?????

A crashed laptop and a self-proclaimed genius, the ressurection of the one and only banana.

God, did I miss you, jumpy yellow misfit! :mrgreen:

Happy to see you're back! :D
