Polls End At Noon Tomorrow

Posted by Turakii #1 Lavasurfer , Jun 19 2006 · 139 views

This one'll be short, because I'm going to bed in ten minutes. (It's ten thirty right now. Me sleepy.)

The first set of polls end at noon on Tuesday. Here's the update on poll #5, if anyone cares.

Currently, the Mata-Nui Humane Society (by T.O.A.) is ahead with ninety-nine votes. Believe it or not, someone actually said he hoped it would keep its place. laugh.gif I can see why so many voted for it---T.O.A. is quite an artist.

In second is Brothers in Arms, by Unsolved Mr. E, with thirteen. It's got a chibi Piraka in it.

In third is Becomer a Plumber, with twelve votes. No clue who made this one, but goodness, that style is exactly the kind I've always wanted to draw. tongue.gif

Then comes Dokuma's Dawg Pound, with eleven votes. For awhile, Brothers in Arms and Becomer a Plumber were tied at eleven with this one, but they're not now.

Anyways, those are the top four in poll #5. Only the top two are going on into the finals, so I'm going to bed.

What do you mean, abrupt change of subject? blink.gif



It's Hot Enough To Roast A...roast.

Posted by Turakii #1 Lavasurfer , Jun 18 2006 · 79 views

LarryBoy: Turakii's afraid to come upstairs to his computer, because it's so hot. It's hot because he lives under the Mangly Volcano or something like that. Anyways, it's hot, so I'll do him a favor and blog for him! happy.gif

Today, I found out firsthand the best way to make a fire (something very handy for any plunger-headed superhero to know, so if you're a plunger-headed superhero, you'll want to pay special attention to this part). First step, you need a fire pit. If you don't have a fire pit, you can just use a goldfish bowl duct-taped to a few golf clubs.

Now, you need to fill it with lots of newspapers, cardboard, and old, dry sticks.

And then you just blow on it, and there you have it!

I may have missed a step or two, but I don't think so. blink.gif

Just remember, you should always have an adult or three nearby when doing this, to hold up the golf clubs as you work. I didn't do that once. It took three days to get the goldfish bowl off my super-suction ear. (Plunger-headed superheroes, take note.)

Turakii got a picture taken of us early this morning, before the heat became too much for him. I think he posted it somewhere in General Artwork, but I can't give you a link to that. I'm not good at this link stuff. Superheroes have more important stuff to do than link.

According to some "dude new va," who is friends with an "iron lung," Turakii is ten times crazier than some other guy whose name is "oh new key."

People around here sure have odd names. blink.gif

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a game of Candyland I have to go finish with Alfred. I'm still stuck in the Molasses Swamp.

Super-suction ears...away!


Yay Art Contest!

Posted by Turakii #1 Lavasurfer , Jun 17 2006 · 83 views

Well, the Art Contest voting began today. I'm in poll 5.

Of course, I had to be in a poll with the Humane Society, which was one I had originally been planning to vote for. It's great. happy.gif

Oh, well. I'll vote for it in the Finals. laugh.gif

There are a lot of fantastic entries. BZP is not only the #1 Bionicle forum, but it's got the best Bionicle artists.


Post one thousand today whoo! _icon_joy_.gif I'm going to draw a picture or write a story or somethin'!


I have been officially dubbed as "ten times crazier than Onuki." At last! A dream come true! tongue.gif


Drat, I forgot to study for Quizzing today.


I can't think of anything else to say, so I'm signin' off.

(I wonder where LarryBoy is. He's gone missing again.)


This post has been hacked by LarryBoy on Saturday, June 17th, at somewhere around eight o' clock.


Drivers Beware

Posted by Turakii #1 Lavasurfer , Jun 15 2006 · 60 views

Tuesday the third,
I'll call this entry "Mistake"
Cheap imitation
My life feels like a fake
A people person
Some days people annoy me
I'm growing edgy
Wednesday's title: "Avoid Me"

Breathe on me...

Go Newsboys. laugh.gif My mom has almost every one of their songs, and the above is one of the best. (I notice K.I.E. likes it, too.) Cornelius is also pretty high on that list. That's why my last BBC entry was themed on it.

I know a website with all the Newsboys lyrics, ever. So if anyone wants the link, PM me. happy.gif

Okay, Newsboys aside, a few days ago I posted a poem: The Swim.

What else is there to write about? Ah yes. Master Vahi got a blog, where he puts his mind and hopes he can find it again. You might want to check it out. happy.gif

DudeNuva started a blog as well. Yay.

Random question: I wonder what happens if you lock one of your entries?

Just as I'm finally getting around to blogging, after two days of "forgetting," it's time for dinner. Figures.

Bye for now.

(Hmm...I wonder where LarryBoy is? He's usually shoving me out my chair at this point.)



Hooray! Master Vahi Is Premier!

Posted by Turakii #1 Lavasurfer , Jun 12 2006 · 95 views

Master Vahi's Premier Membership went through just a few minutes ago!

Hooray for Master Vahi! _icon_joy_.gif

Yes, I'm really excited for him.


One Thousandth Post, Here I Come!

Posted by Turakii #1 Lavasurfer , Jun 12 2006 · 165 views

LarryBoy: Turakii has encountered potato-dinners today! So, today I'm going to teach you the ins and outs of making perfectly mashed potatoes!

First, if you don't have a potato masher at home, you can just use a bedspring tied to a pogostick. Now grab a potato, drop it in a bowl, and jump on the masher! Mash--and up--and mash--and up--

rolleyes.gif It seems LarryBoy is making dinner for us tonight.

Having already reached "Encountering Protodermis (not potato-dinners)," I'm looking forward to soon reaching my one thousandth post. And I haven't even got my Vahi yet. (I'm looking forward to that, too, but there's no way to speed it up. Time plods on, despite our calls.)

Any suggestions on how I could celebrate? I'm open for them.

DudeNuva became a Premier Member today! Congratulations, DN! _icon_joy_.gif

Hopefully, Master Vahi will become one today as well, or at least by tomorrow. Then he might get a blog, too. biggrin.gif

I have a new story up, Gali Indecision. DudeNuva proofread it for me. Thanks, DudeNuva!

I'm learning three quarter time on the keyboard. It's what my sister calls "Waltz time." One-two-three one-two-three one-two-three...

Fun, yes, just so long as I use three quarter time, and not four.

LarryBoy was nice enough to let me put up a picture of myself. Below his, of course. rolleyes.gif I should post it in General Artwork someday.

And I can't think of anything else to say (did I just hear a "hooray"?), so I'm done.

LarryBoy: Au revoir, mon amies!


Languages And The Like.

Posted by Turakii #1 Lavasurfer , Jun 11 2006 · 160 views

LarryBoy: Hola, amigos. No es triste? Larryboy bailar como Turakii. (Hello, friends. Isn't it sad? LarryBoy dances like Turakii.) I think that's what I just said in Spanish...

Me: It's the law that my siblings and I take two years of foreign languages. We're going to be learning Spanish. We actually haven't learned it yet, but we've memorized the lyrics to Veggietales' Dance of the Cucumber, so we can make people think we know more than we do.

My friend was impressed when I told her to name her American Idol character, "Escuchen (escushen?) ElNino." (Listen to the boy. At least, I hope that's what it means. laugh.gif )

Something you should never use to learn another language is Babelfish. If you translate English to Spanish and back again, it turns some words into completely unrelated words, which change your meaning entirely. Tacku Nuva had a comedy where he used a translator to change some of his characters' speech to different languages. He gave translations, but I got curious and tried translating them back to English through Babelfish. Some of them turned out very odd. blink.gif

I'm off to answer my PMs and shower now (but not at the same time), so bye! (This was a short entry.)

LarryBoy: Adios, amigos!


The Sky Is Blue? O.o I Didn't Know That.

Posted by Turakii #1 Lavasurfer , Jun 10 2006 · 101 views

I thought it was always white with snow pouring down.

What are you looking at me like that for? blink.gif

LarryBoy is still recovering from his incident with Matau (and happily watching LarryBoy and the Rumor Weed, starring you-know-who), so I'm free to write whatever I want. Yay.

My mom captured the LarryBoy theme song from the aforementioned video, using some of her handy video-capturing software, and we've been watching the theme song video over and over on our computers. Problem is, after you've heard it enough times, you find yourself singing, "Groove it, Larry!" anytime, anyplace. But at least I like the song. Unlike poor Takuna Nuva, whose sisters memorized it. laugh.gif

I've recently discovered that Lewa's axe is very handy for using to hang him from the handle of a ceiling fan. It's really funny when someone does that and forgets he's there, and then walks into him in the dark. And then he falls and lands on that someone's foot. And then that someone steps on him with their bare foot...

Of course, stepping on Bionicles (or any Lego in particular) in the dark can happen without having had them previously hanging from a ceiling fan. It is probably one of the most painful experiences known to man. annoyed2.gif

Today I drew a nice little picture of my character, Turakii. Speaking of which, I forgot to scan him. I'll do that now. Thanks for reminding me.

I'm trying to put together a page with all the Veggietales lyrics there is. Are. But anyways, although I have a lot of them, I've finally run out of lyrics to put up. If anyone has an abundance of Veggie lyrics, and wouldn't mind PMing them to me, please do so. (I really want the lyrics to the SUV song.)

Well, I've been online for quite a while now, so I'll leave this Land of Blogginess and come back tomorrow or so. Bye.

LarryBoy: Hello, Citizens! Are you ready to successfully buy, for less than five dollars, over two million--

I'm done.

LarryBoy: What?

The blogging. I'm done for today.

LarryBoy: Oh.

Well, how am I supposed to get rid of all these--

*Sigh.* Okay, okay, I'm coming. Bye again, guys. laugh.gif


On The Subject Of Real Estate

Posted by Turakii #1 Lavasurfer , Jun 09 2006 · 131 views

LarryBoy: Hey kids! Are you ready to make millions in real estate with no money down? I know I am---

Matau: Move aside, plunger-ears! Let a real Toa-hero teach-instruct!

LarryBoy: Yeah, but I bought a whole chocolate factory with no money down!

Matau: blink.gif

Thanks a lot, Beamie. You've started a fad. laugh.gif

Before I begin this entry, I'll reply to the replies from the last entry. Thanks lots to all of you who took the trouble to post here. happy.gif

Air-Master: You're homeschooled, too? Ooh, cool! biggrin.gif

What kind of guitar do you play? Normal guitar? (I'm so technical. laugh.gif )

Yep, I drew that. Took about half an hour to shade.

Tomiku: What's even more annoying is when you discover you've been playing it with the wrong keys/valves for a whole week, so you've memorized it that way. blush.gif

And you've been homeschooled, too? I didn't know that!

I knew The Fight was weird before you didn't post. laugh.gif

How about a cotton swab, once you take those headphones off?

Chriskopaka: You too!?

Maybe someone should make a homeshoolers' topic or something. I had no idea there was so many!

Kopaka's Ice Engineering: That's a really neat name.

We need a musician's topic, too. Then we could all get together and talk about...music, I guess.

angry nidhiki: And Lady Kopaka!? I had no clue.

Actually, it's only in the case of cats (and not wah brass) that sitting on the keys counts as playing.

May I ask why you have stuffed poor Beliwa in your post? laugh.gif


Okay, on to blogging.

I've made a couple folders of my Veggietales banners and avatars which anyone can use, if they care. If not...don't, I guess. tongue.gif

I believe Lady Kopaka is going to be getting home soon, but I'm not certain. I'm looking forward to her getting back to BZP (who isn't?). If anyone can fill me in here, I'd be grateful.

Today was marshmallow fluff day. That means my family had fluffernutters for lunch, which are about the best kind of sandwich ever. (I eat the fluff off the knife.) The only member I know who likes marshmallow fluff about as much is Master Vahi. He eats it off the knife, too. laugh.gif

I don't have anything much left to say, so I'll inform you of the best word in the world. Bamboo. Try saying it really fast three times. It's so much fun to say.



I have to go get LarryBoy's ear unstuck from Matau's mask now, so I guess I'm signing off. Bye for now. happy.gif


Music Works Best Without Earplugs

Posted by Turakii #1 Lavasurfer , Jun 08 2006 · 94 views

LarryBoy: Hey kids! Are you ready to listen to the hottest new music on the Internet? I know I am!

Now, the first thing you need to do is put a pair of headphones on your ears. It's a good idea not to be wearing earplugs, earmuffs, or bunny ears at this point. Also, always make sure you don't have slushy or peanut butter on your headphones before you put them on.

Now, we just slip them on and, and click on...I can't reach the mouse. This wire's too short. Here, I'll take off my headphones and then...and then...help! They're stuck to my super-suction ears! *Yanks at headphones.* TURAKIIII!

Here we go again...

Today wasn't the most exciting day of my life. I woke up. Ate breakfast. Did my chores and schoolwork. (I love being homeschooled. I don't think there are too many other homeschoolers on here, though.)

My sister and I were fooling around on the Keyboard (the one you play) after our lessons, and found this weird instrument setting called "wah brass." It sounds like singing cats. Really. blink.gif Imagine the C Major scale being sung by your favorite kitty, and you know what a wah brass sounds like.

Instruments are a lot of fun, except when you're halfway through a song and realize you've got your fingers on the wrong keys. annoyed2.gif

Any other instrument-players out there?

I wrote a new comedy today, The Fight. It's a one-post. I was bored when I wrote it, so I'm warning you, it's kind of weird.

I can't think of anything else to say, so I'm signing off now.

LarryBoy: Bye now, Citizens! happy.gif

LarryBoy, please, don't stand on my desk...

Majhost decided all my cool images weren't importa

Also, apparently the titles have character limits.

This square is dedicated to Avohkah Tamer as an everlasting thanks for an everlasting Premier Membership. Thank youuuu! You are super great!
