That's it. I quit writing this week. I've done nothing but write and read, and I've got a massive fucking headache. After Netball today I'm going to sleep for a week. I'll probably disregard this post by tomorrow and start writing again as I usually do, but it feels so invigorating to say it--as though I've got a plan or some shit.

Waratah better watch out; I scared the hell out of them the last time that I played them; verbally abused the umpire for making the wrong calls (I'm six feet tall and I stand the correct distance of three feet when I put my arms up--its not my fault they are long!) and I scared the shooters and got banned for a week. I wasn't even trying to scare them, but whatever works.

On another note, I've got a nice warm bed to get to, I suggest to myself that I should just stop this post of absolute nothingness and climb into it before it's too late. We've got a 50-50 chance of getting into the semi's, and I'm pretty sure my team won't appreciate me fainting on the court. I've already forgotten to eat before the game twice already and nearly fainted. Pulling an all-nighter on the night before is stupid, yeah, but I can't help it.

If anyone is wondering, I'm a goal keeper. Can't shoot for shit.

Merlin, season three. I never saw it only television because I rarely watch television anymore. It's out on DVD, and I have said  before that the writers of Merlin are lazy and can't do crap when it comes to character development and whatnot. The only thing I've seen of season three is the clips that get put up on Youtube.

Is this season any better? I mean, Arthur is the same pompous ass we met in the first season, not counting the moments of heroicism that get put into some of the episodes at random moments just so we don't forget who the fuck he is. Merlin's magic has not been made known to Arthur--yeah, I read the spoilers--and now I'm wondering if I should even bother with this show.

Other family shows have character development, but this one just seems stagnant. Like the writers don't even care. It's like they learn absolutely nothing. We're dealing with what could be a part of our history! Despite the fact that we don't know whether Arthur or Merlin actually existed back in the time (I think their names were Myriddin Emrys and Artor Pendragon before we got out of Middle English and into Slang English and decided to change their names to keep up with the times or something)--yeah, despite that, you need to treat the characters with respect. If you make a show about the life of Jesus, hell yeah you're going to show respect to it. So why not Merlin and Arthur? They are an important part of English history--don't forget that Australians descended from English prisoners, mate.  No wonder where my birth mother got it from.

So, Merlin; to watch or not to watch?€
