I go clubbing/drinking with mates :)


Clubbing? Sounds violent. Who are you clubbing?

Generally I'll go out one night with friends for a "few" drinks and usually have a day catching up on TV and Movies.

I work with computers all week so on weekends I go to clubs and have sex with random strangers. Nothing takes my mind off work more then having sex with someone I'll never see again.

Damn, why the like button's gone? This one's an A-bomb :laugh:

As for me... I usually click stuff on the internets till well after midnight, then I sleep till well past the afternoon. I don't drink, so having friends (and I harbor this funny old-timey illusion of the concept), doing holy sh* awesome stuff and having a good time to tweet about and remember later (or on the contrary - being reminded of, to be slightly ashamed of, but for no more than ten or twenty seconds of universally acclaiming laughter, as it happens) is out of question. At all.
I used to think I'm a gamer, but after the personal budget cuts I've lost what little skill I had had. Or perhaps I'm just tired, because I seem to have lost the best part of the interest, too.

One can tell that I consider most people [who socialize] shallow, but in truth it's me who's more shallow than a great many of them. I hate everyone and everything seems stupid to me.

Sometimes I write an article or two for the local IT news site I click at more than others. I like writing. "I write like" Cory Doctorow (which should say how POS that is). I do think I have a better way with words than many, but not so much that I could do something more with it - I suspect it's because I can't be arsed, though. They say many things about sheer determination as opposed to having raw talent.

that sounded like the end of a suicide note.

Nah, I couldn't do it. Both the note and the very thing.
I like editing and revising. As you can now see, I've added a couple things to my previous post, too. This one, too. I never get it right with the first time. Nor the second and the third, if I'm even allowed. Suicide's kind of a terminal decision. George Carlin has said all the rest about it in his "Life is worth losing".

I've upgraded to Subscriber Squared partly because of unlimited editing time...

Did my alcoholic time while still in the Army, I don't drink much anymore, maybe a case a year if that, depending on money. Don't socialize much, I find that most people I meet annoy the living daylights out of me, unless it's another Veteran, so yeah, hate non vets, get along fine with vets. I just stay home and chill with the kids, do laundry. I miss 24h supermarkets, we have none here, it was nice to be able to go to the store at say 2am and essentially have the store to myself, makes shopping very enjoyable.

I spend my weekends doing homework recently, writing a bit for Neowin, and trying to maintain something resembling a social life. I tend to come home from school on Friday and immediately start into some homework to try and get it out of the way quickly. I might meet some friends that evening, or on Saturday evening. Basically, we meet up since we don't have a chance to do so during the week. That's maybe at 6 or 7pm, and then I'll come home around 11 or 12 that night. When I come home, it's back to homeworks. :/

If i get any free time I'll write something for Neowin, or perhaps edit a few article ideas I have in my head and try to polish them up to standard. Then on Sundays I go to my grandfather's place and help out around with shopping and the like. Supermarkets on a Sunday are absolute bedlam, but that's no different to any other time in the week I guess. If I'm not feeling my writing is up to scratch I'll probably fire up a game on Steam.

My weekends are exciting, huh?

Play airsoft every other weekend and spend the rest of my time doing photography or with my girlfriend. Sometimes all 3 at once :)

I don't shoot "every" weekend, but I do enjoy target practicing from time to time. Other times I go hunting for whatever is in season at the time. Today I actually got around to building me a target rack so I can stop propping pop cans up on a pile of dirt or trying to find a dead tree to tack my targets to. I'm actually quite a gun enthusiast. I own them for hunting and, should the need ever arise, self and home defense, and that doesn't just apply to humans. We have mountain lions, wild boar, bobcats, possums, and all sorts of critters that can be dangerous to pets and livestock.


going by your targets your not a very good shot :p lol

I watch Rugby, hang out with the wife and await the arrival of our baby

Weekends lately have been spent chilling, spending time with my wife.
I've stopped drinking, or really cut back on the intake, I can’t handle the hangovers anymore.
I don’t have long lies, I can’t sleep much past 7am, so I’m up and watching any movies that my wife doesn’t want to see.
If we do go out to the shops we want to be there for the doors opening, and get home before they get too busy.
We've recently started Geo-caching, which is a great way to get out in the fresh air and an excuse to stop vegetating in front of the TV all day.

Most of them were used teaching my brother's girlfriend to shoot. She was absolutely scared to death to even touch a .22 pistol after I actually put a round in it, and most of her shots went about 2 feet above the board from about 10 yards away, :p One of them (bottom center) I was trying to show my brother how to zero his .22 rifle, but for some reason he does not have any way to adjust windage, only the elevation, so that's why all his shots are off to the right.

Some of them are me though, I was showing the wife how to quickly fire two shots at a target with the AR-15 from about 7 yards, so we weren't going for tight groups, we were looking for:
1) Up
2) 2 shots on the paper
3) Back to low ready
