I woke up feeling horible. After a small breakfast, I went to go lay down and relax as my family got ready to go to work and school.
I watched "The Day After Tomorrow" (because my dad was sick and wanted it), then probably slept a little, then watched Fullmetal Alchemist after a lunch. Now I decided to pop in Harry Potter 3.
And I've been getting plenty of water.
The worst part about missing school (or at least high school) is now I have a bunch of work/tests to make up tomorrow and friday. (and I missed the National French Exam. ) Good thing I didn't have any clubs today, but I'm going to have to miss Youth Group tonight.
Well, guys, you know what would make me feel better? Commenting on Toa Sparaku (and then voting for him)
I should get back to my couch.
anyway, -removed- to random quotes/stuff.
(don't be surprised if some of these end up in my "Quote of the Day")
That site had some religious content I'm afraid.
Thanks, sorry about that. Don't worry guys! You'll still see plenty of those appropriate random quotes to your right!
All went well. Set up and cleanup went really well. IHOP was fun afterwards.
And the dance was great too!
I got CDs signed by Pat McGee, Crash Boom Bang, and The Hint. Those bands were awesome! (and I likes Pat McGee (alumni!) and CBB beforehand)
So, being the year 2007, we did a 007 theme.
Here is the logo
(off the movie "Liscense to Kill)
And the second logo for the front of the shirts)
Yeah, I can't wait until next year.
So, yeah, I'm here in the break room to drop off my new CD.
And the final 4 hours should be awesome!
This is a fundraiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a group that works towards finding a cure for Cystic Fibrosis and for helping those that have it get through life. CF is a disease that clogs the lungs with mucous, making it hard to breath.
What makes it so special to Bishop O'Connell High School is that a student (actually, the family had a couple of kids) had CF. She was an excellent athlete and everybody knew her. Because of CF, she of course had trouble in life. But like I said, she was an athelte and was very strong in fighting CF.
O'Connell HS started the Superdance because of her. The Superdance is a 12 hour dance (noon until midnight) that raises money for the CFF. Without SD, the CFF would have $2.8 million less than they do now. This year, tomorrow actually, we are hoping to raise over $200,000 to break the $3 million mark.
This year is the 32nd annual SuperDance. Since the year is 2007, we have a James Bond theme. Very cool.
This is a huge event. 16 committees made up of over 80 students, myself included, have been working since December on making SD a big success this year. We have 4-5 bands come in and DJ's to fill in the rest of the 12 hours.
Bands include: Pat McGee Band (Pat is a '91 alumni) Pat McGee at our 30th SD
And some local bands:
Crash Boom Bang
My Favorite Highway
So, what is the point of this blog? To tell you about SD, CF, and that you can help fight CF by donating. There is a link on the SD website where you can donate securly. (and I know some adults read this that have things such as credit cards...)
But I also just want to tell you that I'll be having an awesomely good time at a 12 hour dance tomorrow. (actually, I spent today setting up, and I'll be there tomorrow at 8:30 AM to about 2 AM, then we go to IHOP after!)
I must say that this CD rocks, and I hope you enjoy the review:
Even if words are probably going to hurt
I’d rather have the truth then something insincere
-Come Right Out and Say It
Relient K released their first album in 2000, and since then released four more albums, not including numerous EPs and a Christmas CD. Being a Christian band, some might think that these guys won’t make it big. But they already have, with two singles on the radio—both Christian stations and contemporary.
All I want to have// Is all that you can give me
And I’ll give right back// Everything I have in me
-The Best Thing
Their last CD, Mmhmm, sold real well, giving them a high-set bar to live up to. They certainly do with Five Score. The lyrics are meaningful, deep, well thought and still poking fun at life in some songs.
You came along one day and you rearranged my life
All I gotta say is I must’ve done something right
-I Must’ve Done Something Right
While a Christian band, don’t go thinking it will be full of praises directed straight toward Jesus. Relient K goes about spreading a message of morality and justice through their songs about life in general, as well as subtle hints of following the faith.
Cause we’re all guilty of the same things...
And I know that I have been forgiven
Five Score certainly lives up to the band’s name for great Christian rock. The songs take a whole new level of the bands rock style, adding in more voices of the band (including an A Cappella for Pleading the Fifth) The songs are filled with beats and rhythms that just add to the band’s reputation for great songs with a feel good fun .
I’m faking my own suicide
Because I know you love me, you just haven’t realized
-Faking My Own Suicide
One question: What did happen five score and seven years (107 years) ago? Well, whatever took place back in 1900 was an excellent muse for the band. This album
is full of Relient K style music that won’t disappoint the fan or a newcomer that decide to pick up the CD. Not just the music, but the lyrics and band’s style all add to the whole CD.
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars (not exactly like Mmhmm, but still rocks and doesn’t disappoint)
Yeah, discuss it here! Great CD, huh guys?
So I'm entering one I'm sending to BF. (It's still on my dresser, so I have time for touch up and photos. Actually, I'm changing something to make it better, so now it will look better at BF too!)
Looking at the MOCs entered, this will be an interesting contest. IMO, I'm MOCing something that I would like Lego to make, but also something that BZP would vote on. (so I'm not doing anything really crazy and enormously complicated) (then I see a quote about "what Lego could make into a set" and seeing how they want simple stuff, this might not pass. But I figure in the end it will come down to what MOC looks best/coolest and the theme will be ingored (that happens right? I don't follow it...))
I've been looking at the competition, and there is a wide variety. All I can say is there are some really good MOCs there, and then some people that take a pre-made body and slap limbs on like they are colorblind.
Yeah, that's my thoughts. I guess I'll finish the touch up on Wednesday and then get pix in before the deadline.
(oh, I live in N. Virginia)
On that note, it's about a 7 hour drive. So I just got a dozen manga from the library to take care of the time.
the main point of this entry is that I'll be gone from about friday at 4 to monday. (I'll get back sunday, but doubt I'll be able to get on.
so, see you later!
Now, that may seem great, but I really want Anime Club tomorrow at school, and this might cancel school. (yeah, I'm wierd. So shoot me. But I'd rather just have anime club than the whole school day, duh)
