Groundhog Day!

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Feb 02 2007 · 24 views
My Life Is Awesome
So, today is the famous, or infamous, Groundhog Day. Each year on February 2nd, Mr. Punxsutawney Phil pops out of his hole and looks for his shadow. Either seeing it or not means different things.

This year, Punxsutawney did not see his shadow, which means there will be an early spring.

Take this news as you will, I for one want more snow.

You All Failed The Test, Or Did You?

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Feb 01 2007 · 22 views
My Life Is Awesome
So I can't tell if you failed or passed. Maybe, simply, nobody passed or failed and this was one of those tests that looks for info...yeah, that sounds right.

Well, for the past month, I had all 26 letters of the alphabet in my sig, all ready to be linked as if it was a PBZP. I really wanted to see how many people PMed me thinking it was PBZP, and I got 0 PMs about it.

This isn't a bad thing. I'm just seeing how many people really want to be PBZPized. (And if I actually want volunteers, I'll post here first)

So, what are the results again?

note: I don't need volunteers. (or your sympathy) I was just doing a test, and am now giving the results.
100% passed/failed, 0% failed/passed

Blue Hair!

My Life Is Awesome
So, yesterday was Spirit Day at school. Besides wearing school t-shirts and other blue and sliver clothes (school colors), some people decided to die their hair blue. My friend did, and...

so did I!!!

Yeah, that was fun. I can't wait until the next spirit day!


Oh, and here's another shout for the Lego Master Builder Event going on at Tyson's Corner Mall this weekend.. Please discuss in that entry (I'll be there sunday afternoon)

(Ah! Blue! What about green???)
And this seems to now be the official "post your crazy hair" blog entry. Let the competition begin!
(seriously, that'd be awesome)

Lego Model Builder Event!

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Jan 28 2007 · 41 views
LEGO
So, here's the deal.

Who: A Lego Master Model Builder
What: Building an 8 foot tall Allgator, and meet other Lego fans/BZPers
Where: The Lego Store at Tyson's Corner Center Mall
When: February 2-4 (see below for times)
Why: To meet a Master Builder and meet other Lego fans/BZPers
How: Get to the Tyson's Lego Store this weekend

When:
Friday (2nd): 11 am-7 pm
Saturday (3rd): 10 am-6 pm
Sunday (4th): 11 am-6pm

Perhaps you got a post card if you are in this area of Virginia. With that postcard you can get a free small Pick-a-Brick cup if you show the card and spend $10 or more. (or try it without the post card and try to tell the cashier to use the code "999247" that was on the postcard)

I will be there on Sunday from 4-6, either in the Lego store or with the Alligator model right outside. I'll be wearing my BZPower shirt. I'm a 17 male. (Capricorn; likes long walks on the beach...) I'm going then because I hope that there will be less people there because it's Superbowl sunday, and the model will probable be (almost) complete.

So, will there be anybody else there? I really would like to meet some people!

I'll See You There!

QUOTE(Arpy @ Jan 24 2007, 08:28 PM)

*smacks self in head with blunt object*
A chance to meet a fellow BZPer, and I missed it?!?
We really ought to mention these things in advance, eh?

Arpy


On that note, I would like to tell you where I'll be and when, so we might be able to meet up or even more than one BZPer. (although some of you live in Louisiana and Massachusetts)

Anyway, I'll be at the SAR Oratoracle Contest thing on February 17th, in Richmond, VA
I'll also be at Katsucon (which I still need to blog about...) that same weekend, attending on Sunday. It's at the Omni Shoram Hotel in Washington, DC that weekend.

I'll also be at the Tyson's Corner Lego Store on Sunday, February 4th for that Master Builder event. I'm going from 4-6 in hope the thing will be complete and not many people will be there (instead staying at home watching the Superbowl), so I can actually talk with the Master Builder. I'll be wearing my BZP shirt (light BZP blue with the BZP logo on both sides)

I'll be at Scout Camp Henson (Keep in mind I live near Wash. DC, so it's not far from there) the last week in June.
I'm going to Philmont Scout Ranch on July 8-24 (I think that's when I return).

And I'll be at my local Borders for the seventh Harry Potter Book


anyone going to be near me?

Well, it's been a while since I had an amine section entry, so...

Please check out my newest Avatar! It can be seen in this entry. (actually, I made a comment in here, but that entry is pretty cool so you should go there anyway)

My Life Is Awesome
So last night I took part in an essay contest. The Sons of the American Revolution holds a contest linking the Am. Rev. to today.

Well, I won, got $100 and am going to state (Richmond, Va).

Now onto the bad news: The State competition is over Katsucon weekend. (an Amine Convention) Saturday February 17.

Well, I'll still make it to the Sunday part of the con.

Anyway, I won.

March For Life

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Jan 22 2007 · 39 views
My Life Is Awesome
I went on the March For Life today.

Any other BZPers there?

I am talking, of course, about DC's March for Life, as in Pro-Life, as in no abortion, as in Roe v. Wade.

The March For Life is a Rally and Mass in the morning in the Verizon Center (20,000 people in a basketball stadium), then a walk from there to the Capitol building with signs with pro-life messages on them. (On of my favorites was "yo mama is pro life") We are basically trying to show Congress that the decision to make aborting legal (with Roe v. Wade) was a very bad idea and they should change that.

That pretty much explains it.
(and I don't want any rude comments here either)

No, this isn't a post about the manga...

Actually, here in Northern Virginia we finally got some snow! Not even an inch, but it it snowed enough to delay some schools.

Server Busy Ideas

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Jan 19 2007 · 64 views
LEGO
For the Server Busy pages, and me just having had my English Mid-term exam, this is on my mind:

I edited the first stanza to Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven" Here it goes:

Once upon a server busy, whild I surfed, weak and weary
Over many a quaint and curious volume of Bionicle Lore--
While it loaded, nearly lacking, suddenly there came that lacking
As if something gently hacking, hacking for this server bore
"Tis many visitors," I muttered, "tapping on the BZ Door
Server Busy and nothing more"

Go read that poem,
And if you want a smaller "Raven" quote:
Quoteth the Raven, "server busy, back up nevermore."


I also have a good Star Wars one:
"Luke, I am your server."


now, does anyone actually take suggestions?

It's My Birthday!

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Jan 18 2007 · 40 views
My Life Is Awesome
That's right! I am now 17. Woohoo!
Well, I guess some of you are past that now....
click here

So far I have received $55, which will most likely all go toward Lego. (or some to some Manga)

I also expect some manga, Lego, and camping equipment. (perhaps some surprises as well)

There will be cake. (It's white with white frosting, so my brother and mom can eat it too (allergic to chocolate), but I did have a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and chocolate pudding in the middle when my friends came over on saturday (and we went to WAMALUG...))

Dinner will be chinese. I like Kung Pao chicken. (as well as Wonton soup. (thanx KIE!)) But do I really need to justify any reason for whatever I'm having?

Well, that's about it. Sadly I have exams this week, as it's been for the past two years too. So it's not even announced on the announcements.

Updates: Thanx guys for the comments
Spoils: Defilak, Small Aqua Raiders, camping stuff, beef jerky, and the box in which I though contained manga contained Harry Potter 5&6--In French! This will be...fun?...interesting?...none the less it'll be good practice.
Oh, and I got $20 to the Lego Store and $20 to TRU. That will definately go toward Lego.

My First L U G Meeting!

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Jan 15 2007 · 54 views
LEGO
Well, on Saturday I went to my first Lego User's Group (LUG) meeting! The group is WAMALUG (Washington Metro Area LUG). I went with two 16 year old friends, and had an interesting time. I was able to talk with AFOLs young and older, and almost every new set was there. I was able to see the new Aqua Raider sets, some new Exo Force, a couple of Barraki and all the small box sets, and some new Star Wars sets.

We also played BrickQuest, an RPG using Lego.

I do plan on going back, but not until April or June, depending on when I have time. We'll also probable bring my System piece bins, and I'll bring some Bionicle MOCs, and we'll build there and get other people's opinions on the MOCs.

So, anyone else belong to or at least visited a LUG?

Oh, yeah, I signed their list, so now I get 10% off my purchases at my local Lego stores!

Well, my family got high speed internet now!

Which means goodbye dial up!

So things are going way too fast than I'm used to!

Things I plan on doing really soon:
  • go to Biowall and look at every image
  • Look at a bunch of BBC topics
  • Download anime/manga
  • Read anime/manga
  • Load pix to BrickShelf
  • And a bunch of other stuff that I couldn't do 13.5 % speed ago.

Don't Do This

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Jan 10 2007 · 48 views
LEGO
As Tilius has mentioned in his blog entry, I now ask the same thing:

Please don't pluarlize Bionicle words!!!! beg1a.gif

QUOTE(Tilius)
...people who pluralize Bionicle words. Like Toas, Matorans and Pirakas. Makes me feel sick. And the word itself - into Bionicles. So don't do it...


That pretty much explains it. It's not cool. There is a Toa of Light, and there are six Toa of Metru Nui. Zaktan is a Piraka, and all the Piraka are evil. There are six Turaga that watch out for the Toa Nuva.
Generally, there are six of something and you don't need to add an 's'
Continuing:
There are six types of Vahki. A swarm of Bohrok are attacking the Koro. (that is a good examle!)

Don't do it. beg1a.gif
