|11:23 pm - Randomnicity... and annoyance.|
Random meme grabbed off hyperspace, because I thought it would be amusing.
1. Grab the nearest book
2. Open the book to page 23.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
Closest Book: Handgun, by John Batchelor and John Walter. Currently being used as a mousepad...
[Page 23 is a pageful of pictures. There are a total of 3 sentences. Therefore I'm using page 24.]
Neither is it [the wheel-lock] as important as the advance from the flintlock to the percussion lock, which resulted from major advances in chemistry. Hoever, the vertically moving sear in the French Lock provided a reliable cocking action and, for the first time, an effectual half-cock feature; in addition, wear in the sear or tumbler was much less worrying than in preceding lock designs. Once the French Lock had been established, by the 1630s, most subsequent improvement concerned construction rather than basic principles.
Anyhoo, onto the real reason that I decided to post: That job I was wooting about earlier? Yeah... guess what. She didn't call today. If she doesn't call tomorrow, I'm going to assume that I didn't get it, and go back to the jobsearch.
I hate it when things don't go the way I'd like them to. Especially when it's something that's so difficult anyway...
To sum, arse.
Oh, and I did another page of my own IK-adventures-manga. And I wallpapered Stryker. True to form, he was an absolute bastard about it, and didn't cooperate at all. Poots.
Current Mood: annoyed
Current Music: March of the Conqueror
*laughs* Well, currently I'm looking for any work, be it full or part-time. The thing is, I'm taking hiatus for this year from Uni (last year's result being most of the reason), so I'm looking for full-time work really.
