    A little bit tired, it's 23:30 here and I have to go in 15 minutes again for work for a few hours. And I'll have to help my father building his pond thingy in the morning tomorrow. Basicly, a little bit frustrated at the fact I probably won't get much sleep tonight. But I take solice in knowing I will catch that up sometime later anyways. So basicly just a little bit tired.

    What is your motto?

    Be yourself.

    The wails of my victims and the lamentations of their women
