I...I don't know what to think.
I'll start at the beginning I guess.
Ok, so I arrived at mum and dad's a few hours after my last post, spent at least an hour trying (unsuccesfully) to calm my hysterical mother down. Eventually she just sort of...deflated I guess, collapsed on a chair and pointed to Megan's room. Curious, I walked in and was immediately greeted by a face full of Operator symbols. It was like she had gone and taken all the the paper out of the printer (which she probably had), and then decided she wanted operator-symbol-wallpaper. There wasn't a centimetre of clear wall anywhere. And just to top it off, her desk was covered in drawings of Mr. Tall Pale and Faceless himself, his tentacles making him look more like a giant spider than a person.
Oh and her journal is full of creepy-as-shit rambles and dreams. There's some pretty messed up stuff in there.
It was like something out of Seeking Truth.
I honestly have no idea how to take this. either,
a) She ran away after spontaniously redecorating her room
b) She was abducted after spontaniously redecorating her room
c) Slenderman is real
Ok, c) is highly unlikely, but you never know. After god-knows how many hours combing the neighborhood looking for her and finding nothing, coupled with the state of her room and her weird journal entries, you have to wonder...
Guys, I need advice here. What should I do?? Did she just run away? If it is Slenderman do I continue looking for her and risk bringing him after mum, dad and I?
I'm going to go search through her room again and see if we missed anything.

Just had a call from Mother. Megan's missing. I'm typing this as I'm getting ready to leave and help look for her.
Don't know when I'll be back.

The Flu and Jonathan Creek

Not a lot to say about today. I've managed to catch that flu that's going around at the moment so I've spent the entire day curled up on the couch with Misty (my dog) and having a Jonathan Creek marathon.
Huh. This was a short post.
Oh bugger it. I'm too sick to think of a way to make it longer.

Boys and Icing

I just devoured at least a cup of chocolate icing.
My God I'm going to be a whale by this time next year.

And I finally cornered Megan over Skype and managed to get her to tell me what's bothering her. It's boy trouble. Can't say I'm surprised. She's never had a boy interested in her before (not because she's ugly or anything, she just comes across as scary to people who don't know her well), so of course she's going to be nervous. She got all shy about it and wouldn't tell me much, but I did manage to figure out who it is. She said that he doesn't talk much and likes wearing suits. The only boy we know who's like that is a guy called John. Whenever he's not in school he wears suits. I don't know what is fascination with them is, but you almost never see him in normal clothing. He even does his shopping in suits!
Ah well. It's good to know it's nothing too serious in any case.

Cake, PistolShrimps and Concerns.

My god. I've eaten so much cake today I can actually feel  my waistband expanding. It wasn't even a special occasion or anything, I just went "Oh screw it, one day of binge eating won't make me fat" and then proceeded to stuff my face with delicious cake.
I'll go run up a hill or something tomorrow to work it off.

Come to think of it, tonight has just been me turning into a vegetable. All I've done is watch youtube, read slenderblogs and creepy pastas, eat cake and drink tea while lounging on a sofa. I may even watch Fight Club later. While eating more cake. And tea.

Alright, time for more shameless advertising. Has anyone here ever seen the PistolShrimps channel on Youtube?
Oooooh boy XD.
Just....just go look. They are honestly some of the funniest people on YouTube.

Ok. Now that all the light things are out of the way, I do actually have a possibly-serious problem I need advice on.
It's about Megan.
I spoke to her over the phone about an hour ago, and I'm almost positive something's not right. She sounded exhausted, she was really really quiet, and she just sounded overall distracted. Yes she's in year 11 and has a fairly large workload, but it has never bothered her beyond typical teenage complaining before now.
I don't know what it is, but there's something wrong and she absolutely refuses to tell me. She just keeps going "Oh I just had a late night".
Ok, I might have believed that, but I spoke to my parents afterwards and they said she's been like this for almost a week now and they've both seen her going to bed relatively early. That doesn't mean she isn't staying awake after she's dissapeared into her room though.
I know that there's probably nobody reading this, but if there is I'd love to know your ideas on how to help her, or at least find out what's wrong.

Alrighy, that's all I have for now.

Naptimes and Hackers

Today was more of a "meh" day than anything else. Someone at work had turned the heating up really high, and someone at a table was reading Shakespeare.
You have no idea how hard it is to stay awake under those circumstances.
Oh well, nothing like being jabbed in the kidneys by a coworker's fork to wake you up again.

In other news, Lulzsec hacked the Sun's website. Well done good sirs/madams! We salute you!

In other-other news, I'm convinced my dog thinks she's a ninja. About half an hour ago the door blew open and she snuck outside. Went outside and started calling for her with no success. I came back inside and stuck my head out the back door to see if she was just locked out there. I heard the sound of claws in tiles and turned around to see her trotting from the still open door and down the hallway. I called her again, but she ignored me until she was out of site, and then turned around and stuck her head back around the corner as if to say "What? I've been here the entire time!"
And now she's nudging my leg and demanding to be fed.

All in all a good day.

You know it's going to be a great day when something makes you laugh less than five minutes after you wake up. 
So I woke up this morning, came out into the kitchen and turned the television on to watch the Today show. They were running a thing where you had to submit possible captions to this image. A few minute later they had a few bits of paper in their hands, and for the next few minutes they tried to read out the captions people had sent in, but never got further then saying the submitter's name before going "wait, no we can't say that".
I like to think everyone just said "DAT ASS". 

Anyway, the rest of today went pretty well, and I am currently relaxing at home with a nice cup of tea while watching Dopefish scream and swear his way through Amnesia: The Dark Descent.

Here is part one for your viewing pleasure

Nostalgia Critic

Oh god...can't...breathe. Ribs hurt....from laughing...too much.

Holy crap. This may be the funniest thing I have seen this year, or indeed EVER.
What is it that has amused me so? 
I'll start from the beginning.
So I was casually browsing ThatGuyWithTheGlasses and was sifting through Nostalgia Critic's videos in search of lulz.
Hoooo boy did I find them.
I finally decided to watch his review of "The Room" since the title interested me, and I discovered what is possibly the greatest so-bad-it's-good film of all time.
When I had recovered from watching the review, I immediately went and downloaded the entire movie to watch (yes I'm a pirate on occasion. Sue me.) 
If anyone is actually reading this, I urge you to watch it. It will be the best thing you have seen all year.

Long car trips and sisters.

Lots of things have been happening since my last update, and this is literally the first time I've had internet access in over a week.
Alrighty then.
So, about the "long car trips" part of the title. Last week someone very close to my family died, and we had to travel down to Victoria for the funeral and to help tie up all the loose ends.
With the whole Tiger Airways-thing all the other airlines have jacked their prices up, and it was going to cost us a small fortune to fly down, so we had to drive. In total, I think we spent about 24 hours in the car each way; 18 hours driving, and another six hours sleeping off the side of the road in those rest stops along the way.
I won't go into details, but I think everything went as well as it could have, considering the circumstances. 

This also seems like a good opportunity to introduce my sister, since she was amazing throughout all this and made it all infinately easier.
Her name is Megan, and she is one of the most bizzare, but caring siblings anyone could ever ask for. She's in year 11, has never had a boyfriend, and spends most of her time playing the Elder Scrolls games. She is also terrific at distracting people from their problems. Really, if you're upset about something, spend five minutes talking to her and you'll forget you were ever unhappy. Well, for as long as you're talking to her at least.
She also has a really odd way of dealing with grief. Instead of breaking down and crying, or anything else people usually do she instead refuses to allow herself to think about it and throws herself entierly into whatever it is she is obsessed with at the time. This month she seems to have a thing with Creepypastas. She's trying to get me into them as well, and I have to say...I'm impressed! She linked me to things like the BEN DROWNED arg/story (sad we came into that one a bit late), various Slender Man blogs and vlogs, The Rake and other stuff. She tried to make me read the Suicide Mouse thing but I'm ashamed to admit I was freaked out by the title and refused to look at it. 
As is my nature with new and exciting things, I spent all night binge-researching all this stuff, and my God it's good. Sure I probably won't sleep for a week or two but it was all totally worth it. 

Alright, one last thing before I go. Blogger is finally cooperating and is allowing me to upload photos of my Skullkid outfit!

That's all for now.
