Lovecraft is meant to scare the piss out of people. If he did warm and fwuffy it wouln't be Lovecraft. It'd have been a drunkenly-penned halfarsed literary answer to a coathanger-abortion on his part.

It'd be shit if he had written crap in that sort of way. It'd be him vomiting into a garbage can.
Also not all his stuff is THAT terrifying.

As for the something good..got paid, found out I had almost a grand in the bank and did about £200-something in food shopping (albeit am somewhat annoyed I forgot to get the cigars I was after, but oh well those I can get tomorrow). Got lots of treats, including a pair of beef rump-steaks custom cut to a nice big fat thick juicy size, along with 3 packs of shiitake mushrooms to fry and serve with them, along with a mixed pack of king oyster fungus, shiimeiji and enokitake that I'll fry up with my special great-flavoured, flavour enhancing for meat too (similar to MSG does so) and part-time suitcase nuke small enough to fit into a pocket-sized spice bottle, stuff IS a bit fiery I'll admit, and especially when just starting to cook the meat after its been marinaded in various hot sauces and dusted with my fly agaric mushroom-based specialiy blend that its a good idea to keep out of the kitchen if you aren't the cook, and that cooks should wear a mask and surgical gloves.

Bought some little key lime cheesecake pies, creme brulees in little glass pots (same goes for the key lime pies. The glass dishes will make for useful crystallization/recrytallization dishes once I've eaten the contents), cartons of pear apple and lychee juice, and of grapefruit juice (the latter will help keep my liver CYP-P450-3A4 or/and P450-2D6 enzymes suppressed, along with a few of my meds that will do so, and some over the counter supplies aimed at the same, a big selection of milkshakes, some regular toffee and some cookie-dough milk and some really thick 'frijj' milkshakes in cookiedough, irish coffee and fudge brownie milkshakes,  got a few of those since those were on sale for 50p a bottle), pizzas, asian pairs, pomegranates, an ice melon, couple of bunches of bananas, a big (2.5kg I think) tub of protein shake powder, to help compensate for my fairly low-protein diet given I often don't feel hunger until its really straining at the leash, or realize I've not eaten. Stocking up as I hadn't eaten more than a couple of bowls of cereal in a week, maybe two weeks, plenty slices of roast beef and many, many other tasty things....two 12-lpack boxes of mixed varieties of krispy kreme donuts, jellybeans-the posho many flavor kinds and lots of other good stuff.
Beyond the pale. Way, way beyond the pale.

Coffee happened.
To me it looks like you're saying that banning bombs didn't stop bombs going off therefore there is no point to gun control because it's a mental health issue.

Donuts happened :D

Lots and lots and lots of krispy-kreme donuts of loads of different kinds. Bought 24 yesterday, a really big selection, and most of them are all gone now.

Got a pair of steaks in the fridge, good quality beef rump steaks, had them cut to personal preference rather than take the display pieces at the butchers, so they are nice and thick and juicy looking. Cost about £20something for the two. Plus bought three big tubs of shiitake mushrooms to fry and serve with them, as well as some shiimeiji, some enokitake and king oyster mushroom (might be Pleurotus eryngii, not totally sure. Was tempted almost to get some vase chanterelle but the Cantharellus varieties on offer at the supermarket were below my standards really and  when I buy or pick mushrooms I go for the best. I've been picking since i was age 4, and lets just say starting from that age, and getting as old an old fart as I am now, I've had quite some time to become a picky little bugger when it comes to selecting the prime, fresh and juicy specimens of the most delectable little treats to be hunted from the wilds, and when it comes to buying them in a shop, I am REALLY fussy about them being good enough. Bits falling off, or scrappy looking Cantharellus tubaeformis sold as true chanterelles...that is just not good enough. They didn't even look like good quality C.tubaeformis.

I went and looked at some property for sale.

How long did that take?

We left a bit before 11am and got back to Charlotte Pass at...I can't remember if it was 6 or 7pm.
I held proceedings up with my need for frequent rest stops :autism:.
I'm also nicely seared from the unfiltered UV rays at 8000ft.

How long roughly does it take for the uni's system to update? because it still says I haven't completed the course requirements ??? (which would make me see red if it's true!!)

Meant to be is probably the best way to say it, yes.

I have been working on getting Filburt to ring a bell on the door when he wants to go outside and he seems to be finally getting used to it
