|A True Account of a Multiple Murder and Its Consequences

I never seem to find the time (or patience) to update, and see as I am currently bored out of my soul, I may aswell do it.
Wacken went well. Had a great time in Germany as always. Enjoyed drinking lots of 'plop' and am already looking forward to next years pilgrimage. The line-up already promises to be good, with Immortal, Blind Guardian, and Saxon already confirmed.
I seem to be working extremely SHIT hours in work as of late. I need to be working at least minimum 26 hours per week, but lately all that can be coughed up for me is about 16 hours spread over five days. Bastards, when will they learn my worth! I have applied for other jobs, but as I am not some boring souless twerp, I received no reply. So as of this day, I wish nothing but scorn upon the houses of Gieves & Hawkes and T.M. Lewin. I am not used to struggling for money so this reality shock is something I would rather have not experienced. Before I moved into my chambers, I was under the impression that over 28 hours of work would be available to me, but as stated, this proved to be nonsense and I am having to do without buying things I previously would not have had a second thought of buying (such as an amazing houndstooth tie in Ralph Lauren).
Just finished reading 'In Cold Blood' by Truman Capote. It is a viciously engaging tale about the senseless murder of a family in Kansas during the 1950's. I am not sure whether we are supposed to feel empathy for the killers, but as it documents their actions preceeding, following, and after being convicted of the murders, it is hard not to. I don't want to go into too much detail because I know Zoe wants to read it, but let me say that it is heartwrenching honest in its portrayal of the events and I command everyone to read it (before watching the movie of course!).
