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)

If you don't know (or it's changed), it's a Fullmetal Alchemist symbol

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 · 38 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 · 63 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!

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 · 53 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 · 46 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

well, I got my ears lowered today. But I guess I needed it.

Piece Of Mind

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Jan 05 2007 · 72 views
LEGO
Well, there is a new Lego Catalog out, and it has some great new sets. The Aqua Raiders look amazing (better than the Alpha Team Water Series), the new Exo Force are nice (I'll get to that in a moment), and of course there are the Barraki. I'm also set on getting the $10 clone trooper set for Star Wars, as well as the new Lego Star Wars shirt.

Now, on with the Exo Force rant. These sets are great! The pieces you can get with them, the new-colored plug suits (That's what they're called in Evangelion), overall it's another good season. What gets me dissapointed is that they made a brick (or 2) that is basically a brick with a technic ball extending from one or two sides. Then they basically use a joint fo the other stuff. This piece is also in at least in one Aqua Raider set.

Now, this might seem OK. It's great that Bionicle is expanding it's realm, right? Wrong. AFOL's don't like bionicle. (Well, there are some, but those traditionalists....) They don't think it has the Lego feel, even the Technic feel. So, IMO, by putting Bionicle pieces in other System sets, they might get discouraged.
(Or they might see how cool it is and convert)

Would it really have been so hard for Lego to use 5, 10, pieces to make a sufficent arm?

So that's my current rant I can't do anything about.

PS, I do plan on getting Blade Titan

Goodbye

to weekday Foxtrot comics. That's right. Sadly, Bill Amend has decided to stop doing the weekday Foxtrot comics.

There will still be the Sunday comic, though!

Foxtrot was my favorite comic of the newspaper. Yeah, I really enjoy Zits and Spider-man, as well as others, but Foxtrot was the highlight of my morning.

So, let's all remember how great Foxtrot is, and remember the clever daily strips.

And here's to sunday.

And if a certain comic writer is reading this, I ask him to please come back!

-CF patriot.gif

There is Pearls Before Swine, but the Comics page is just different without Foxtrot.
