- I didn't go trick-or-treating, but I did wear my creepy-cool costume.
- I've written two things for the occasion. One is a CoT poem, and a Bionicle songfic.
- Considering my dad is watching The Shining right behind me as I speak, I'm fairly sure I'll have a hard time getting to sleep tonight.
It's been a busy week, guys. Since I was absent for the past week or so (why, I'll keep to myself), I've been doing quite a bit. Here's a quick runover:
- I've become hopelessly addicted to Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I'm struggling against Tabuu right now in the Subspace Emissary, but hopefully, I'll kick his butt soon, and not the other way around.
- I'm still having technical difficulties with my MP3 player and iTunes.
- We're watching Batman Begins in English. ^^
- It was Homecoming Week; otherall theme was Lost in Time. Seven spirit days, a huge assembly (which was really fun ), and the game/tailgate party is tonight, with the dance tomorrow on Halloween.
The Spirit Days were:
- Aluminum Foil Day: I believe this needs no explaination.
- Other School Spirit: We wore the colors of other high schools. I stole Rockhound's colors.
- Crayon Day: Basically wear-your-favorite-color-day, though some people took this seriously . . .
- Character Day: Dress as your favorite character. I saw a lot of superheroes hanging around our school today, too. Probably just a coincidence, though . . .
- Music Madness: Support music. Band t-shirts (I wore my Linkin Park shirt ), masks, hairdos, and a lot of Michael Jackson tributes through the white glove.
- Class Theme Day: Freshmen theme was Hollywood Glam. Sophomore theme (mine) was Western. Juniors were Hippies (they had this really good, handpainted poster of the Beatles in their hallway ). And as for the Seniors, I think the following three words should explain it all: THIS. IS. SPARTA!!!!!
- Class Colors Day: From the Freshmen to the Seniors: Grey/Silver, White, Black, and Red. (I wore my white "I reject your reality and substitute my own!" shirt )
Whew . . . busy week.
Rest assured I'll be back to my regular schedule by next week.
Here be the Noble, Bronze, Shelek.
Gallery when public
That little lump on the left side of the mask, just above the eyehole, isn't supposed to be there (the investment material got burned when the plastic was burned out), but I decided to leave it alone.
Anyway, Mr. Walker was all over it when I pulled it out of the mold (he showed it to everyone in the room, and repeatedly said that it was awesome ), and he came up with this crazy idea to make molds of more pieces so I could have a solid bronze set.
It's crazy, I know. But it's my kind of crazy. I'm working on the wings right now. =D
What? Oh yeah, you want me to post pictures of my bronze mask. Well, I got it back, but it still needs work (it has a huge lump of solid bronze on the back that's weighing the entire thing down), so I'll post pictures once those are taken care of.
In other news, I MISSED OUT ON OWL CITY CONCERT TICKETS. T_T
(Yeah, that last bit was totally random. But I had to say that, since it's kinda depressing. )
So yah. However, I'm expected to get my Noble Mask of Silence (in solid bronze) back from Mr. Walker either tomorrow or Wednsday; hopefully tomorrow.
Aaaaand I have to take the PSAT in two days. >.< That's put a dampener on things.
I did get a ton of books, though.
A bunch of Animorphs (now I don't need to borrow them) a couple of Bionicle books I didn't have (sadly, they didn't have Time Trap, the one Bionicle Adventures book I don't have ), and a few other things.
I did come away with a mask, which will be painted red once I get my hands on some paint.
In other news, I'm going to take a serious resemblance to Aizen by tomorrow night, since I'm getting new glasses -- which have rectangular frames.
So me and Lexas get together in English and make a list of reference materials, drawing off books, movies, anime, and manga. Here's the list:
- Lord of the Rings
- The Inheritance Cycle
- The Matrix
- Star Wars
- The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe
- Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro
- Ranger's Apprentice
- Harry Potter
- Cirque du Freak
- D. Grey Man
- Forgotten Realm -- Drizzt Series
- Uglies series
- One Piece
Bionicle(Okay, that wasn't really on the list. But it should be. )
- I had a sore throat and bad cough all day today and yesterday. (How bad? At times I coughed so hard that I re-ate what I had for breakfast. )
- Missed school, so I got an extra day to do my weekend homework. Not sure if that was good or not.
- My parents are demolishing their bathroom, so there's dust and rotten wood everywhere.
- It felt like Thanksgiving had come early, because we had turkey for dinner last night.
- On the plus side, I did read a really good book. Called The Homework Machine, by Dan Gutman. I must say, it was pretty compelling, even though it was below my average reading level. (Now, promise me that if you can make one, only use that power for good, kapeesh? )
And I have to say, it was ROCKAWESOME.
Let's get one thing straight first: that line to get in was LONG. It must've stretched back from the entrance to the Exhibition Hall at least two blocks. But it was totally worth it, once we got in.
I made straight for the Bionicle table with my dad, camera at ready. I met Arpy there, roughly the same time I saw and signed the BZP member sign-in sheet. He told me that Rockhound had been looking for me, and was hanging around somewhere. (This was around 1:00 -- if you were there, Rock, then I curse both my bad memory for not figuring out where you were, and you for not showing up at the photoshoot. )
Then came the photoshoot. We tried to take a picture in front of the Bionicle table, but there were just too many people there, so we had to take a picture on the stairs. Dad handled the cameras for Arpy when we posed, and I finally chatted with Hahli Husky (whom I remember interviewing me, and giving me the idea to paint my Kopaka Nuva '03 set pink ) in person. While Dad chatted with KopakaNui, I slipped off and looked over the sets at the rumage sale. I missed out on a chance for a Copper Akaku, though -- another kid got the set that was wearing it, but he was nice enough to let me snap a pic.
After all that, I went back to Dad, where he and KopakaNui wrapped up their chat, and -- after KN himself exchanged a few words with me -- we left for more spyhopping at the other tables. I also went to the BrickBazaar that covered the entire north and eastern walls, and spent $17 on a t-shirt and earrings. (Now you guys know what I'll be wearing for next year. )
They also had Axalara T9 being sold there, but I lacked the money to buy it.
After about two hours, we finally left. Dad had gotten bored with it long before I did, but I was excited for next year already.
. . . and that concludes my longest entry to date.
These are only a few of them -- I took some 55 pictures there; feel free to check out my Brickshelf for the rest. Oh, and I apologize in advance for their massive size. -.-
Welcome to the Lair!
Ooh, peaceful -- a pagoda
Best bargin on sets I've ever seen
I bet there are a lot of people jealous of that kid right now
These better become real someday, and not exist in bricks
Someone was either really bored or really driven when they made this
THIS. IS. SPARTA!
Proof you can always find some use for spare parts
I think we need more bug spray . . .
That guy in grey looks familar . . .
About two hundred mini-figs later . . .
. . . the parallels between this and Twilight are killing me. >.< *twitch*
The clip's been ripped off, it's not nearly as pretty as it was when I go it, and now it's getting a weird glitch whenever I try to upload music to it.
Hopefully the guys at Best Buy or online can tell me how to fix it, but if not . . .
. . . I don't even want to think about that.

Enter Seneca's Keep if you dare. These halls ring with the laughter, screams, and sobs of those that enter our realms and listen to our words. Many leave in the end, but there are those that fall so under our spell that they never set foot in the outside world again.
They still haunt the Keep -- you may see them out of the corner of your eye, pale and wane from lack of proper sustance. They will not harm you, so long as you do not give them reason to, but take their tale as a warning. Delve into our otherworldly plots with caution -- immerse yourself too deeply, and even we Seneca will not be able to prevent you from becoming part of the Keep and our stories forever.
Join us at your own risk.

Kothra: OMG! BAD INFERNA.
Alex Humva: Zarry has the powers of prediction, guys. Listen to him, lest you become a fly on honeypaper thats on fire with a nuke aimed at it.
Shot by a PHYSICIST!: *Spittake* Three point five? That does it. I'm moving to Washington.
Japoro (in an arguement with Kagha about the possiblity of AeolusxAmph in H&H): You say she wants to dump me for some loser air toa?! I KILL YOU FOOL!
Akaku: I'm not scared of Inferna -- just fearfully surprised.
Sir Kohran: If your parents think you're too old for Lego, simply ask them what you should be into instead, then enjoy the bewildered silence that follows.
Me: On a weird scale we're all normal, but on a normal scale we're all weird.
Half-Dragon: Seems like everyone and their archnemesis has a legacy. Me? I don't even HAVE an archnemesis, let alone a legacy. Does that make me shallow or just really lucky?
Akaku: I like to pretend everything is going well whilest in reality its nothing short of the apocalypse.
AlchemyFox: All love is tragic... Unless you're Shakespeare. Then it's just plain "Whaaaaaat?"
Necro: A lie is just a great story that someone ruined with the truth.
Varderan: Violence makes the world go around.

Kagha (about something I told him from LST): ... DEATH?
Amph's gonna die?
*runs into basement, pulls out hammer, and runs after Inferna*
Kagha in KG: Anyway, curse you all and your stupid fast-moving RPG. ><
Mangai (in my profile): CARKITALL
Me (in his profile): Actually, that quote came from a MMO trailer that follows KOTOR II. =P
Mangai (in my profile): @ Personal statement: Oh, yeah! HK RULEZ
(My personal statement) "Interjection: Silence, meatbags!" - HK-47
Too bad I never played KotOR, or its sequel XP
Oh, well, now I have proof that I am unawesome for Zar. Thanks!
Alex (in KG): YAY-*Choughhackwheeze*
If guitars are universes, and I play with and own multiple guitars, does that make me a God?
KNEEL BEFORE ME
King of Shadows (in Starscape): BEST ERA OF ANYONE'S HISTORY ANYWHERE
Alex (in Starscape): an era when Natsirt claimed to be guns
Peach 00 (in PM): Always loved the Song of Double Time on Majora's Mask. Watch, we'll figure out somebody on the planet has an ocarina and is the source of why the year is going by so fast.
Myself (in an AIMRPG; as Toa of Psionics Kalima): "Who's he?"
Akaku (in the AIMPRG; as Toa of Undeath Akuji): "He ... He is part of everything ... He is the age in a being, the disease in a society, the bullet in a gun... He is what gives this world balance. He is the one who looks after the fallen, and either sends them to the pit or the realm of the great beings ... He is among all of us, even now, especially in my kingdom ... especially in me."
Why Inferna Shouldn't Play Rpgs
Rockhound (in the BZProvince Discussion Topic, fighting Xom and Kagha over my character): We really should get all three of us together and brawl it out. Winner-date-'Ferna.
Xomeron (in KG): If by "So Many" you mean Infinity. In BZProvince, she had four people chasing after her character at once! My character included.Rockhound (in KG): Says who, Kagha?
Kagha (in KG): Lol, Xom, Inferna can only have so many romantically involved characters. XD
Me (in KG): OOC: Thanks for the ideaaaa.[/singsongvoice]
HN (in KG): OOC: Inferna, I am not going to IC six guards all fighting two people. xD
And Inferna, wouldn't that mean that you're fighting Mark? o_o; Do you want me to take Mark.
OR ARE YOU GOING TO USE VERT BECAUSE YOU'VE INJECTED THE SERUM GASP GASP GASP GASP.
-i didnt give Inferna an idea I DIDNT I DIDNT-
Me (in KG): OOC: Hint to HN: Don’t give ideas to the evil genius co-Moderator.
HN (in KG): OOC: ZOMFISH I SEE WHERE YOU’RE GOING WITH THIS INFERNA
YOU ARE GENIUS. XD
Akaku (on AIM): (If people are flirting with you in RPG's again, I will note I now fully reserve the right to yell at them XP)
