Show Week, Transistor, and A Few Other Things

Posted by Portal Nuvia , in Mafia, Theater, Real Life May 20 2014 · 70 views
Mafia, IRL, Theater
So it is show week, which means that I will be very inactive until about Sunday, maybe even later though because I have family coming in to see this play. It should be fun, although I am really tired of this dessert theater aspect of it. It really makes selling tickets and inviting people harder, but whatever.
 
On a related note, for those of you who are friends with me on steam should see me on quite a bit playing Transistor once I can get it. (2 hours... D=) I will pretty much be playing Transistor every moment that I am not at rehearsal. That is mostly why I will be gone all week, because I don't have rehearsal all day until Thursday.
 
As well, I hit Orange a couple of weeks ago. Since I want to, like, actually use this blog. I was wondering what kind of entries everyone would like to see. I am GMing a pnp rpg named Pitfalls and Penguins, and could write entries about our exploits if that would interest you guys. It is a comedic rpg, so it has already gotten incredibly silly. Right now the party is infiltrating a TV station so they can destroy it's reputation, because they were framed for murder and would like to stay in the city. And our paladin is invisible to all secretaries in the world.
 
It would just be a kinda fun thing, but *shrug*
 
So, yeah. Thanks for reading and don't y'all be killing me in Mafia. And if somebody could sign me up for the next game if it happens to show up, that would be swell. Thanks, lol

So. Funny story.
 
I was given the keys to my dad's truck yesterday, with the intent to move it from way out in the parking lot to in front of the building the rest of my family was in. It seemed like a little thing, no big deal. I had to move it maybe a hundred feet, and the parking lot was pretty much empty already. So I walked up to the truck, confident that this wasn't going to be anything noteworthy.
 
Of course, if it wasn't noteworthy I wouldn't be writing about it, would I?
 
Have you ever had one of those days where you just don't feel like yourself? Maybe you feel a little sick, you are just tired beyond belief, or you just aren't quite right. Well, yesterday was one of those days. Why I felt so bad, I had no idea, but I didn't feel particularly myself. In many ways, I was moving the truck to try and make myself feel better and more like me.
 
So I got to the truck, opened the door, and slid into the drivers' seat. In an instant I begin my process to prepare to drive. I buckle my seat belt, I check all the mirrors and adjust as necessary, I look all around to see what I would have to avoid and I don't see anything special to avoid. 
 
Easy. I think as I put the truck into drive. I immediately start rolling backwards when I let go of the brake, and I can't turn the steering wheel at all for some reason. I step on the brake quickly, and begin looking around for explanation. This was only my second time behind the wheel of the truck, so I began looking for a parking brake or the like, thinking that it would help with the wheel.
 
After a few minutes of searching, I see my dad walking up with a very confused look on his face. I open the door, and ask him where the parking brake is.
 
He looks at me for a long moment and then asks "You haven't turned it on yet, why would you need the parking brake?"
 
I look back down at the steering wheel, and see that I had only inserted the key and turned on the radio.
 
welp
 
I shifted back into park, and I turn the truck on successfully this time. I was getting frustrated at this point, so I tapped the gas, but I don't get anywhere with it. I look around, searching for answers, and I found out that I forgot something else.
 
I had put the truck in park again.

DnD, Everyone Else is, doing it and 1 more...
I joined everyone else with this Dungeons and Dragons thing. Obviously I shouldn't have been a cleric, because my wisdom is barely above average, while my intelligence is so high, but whatever. xD
 
I tried to be as honest as possible throughout it, as well. So here you go. Lawful Good Elf Cleric (1st Level)
Ability Scores:
Strength- 13
Dexterity- 12
Constitution- 11
Intelligence- 17
Wisdom- 13
Charisma- 12

Alignment:
Lawful Good- A lawful good character acts as a good person is expected or required to act. He combines a commitment to oppose evil with the discipline to fight relentlessly. He tells the truth, keeps his word, helps those in need, and speaks out against injustice. A lawful good character hates to see the guilty go unpunished. Lawful good is the best alignment you can be because it combines honor and compassion. However, lawful good can be a dangerous alignment when it restricts freedom and criminalizes self-interest.

Race:
Elves are known for their poetry, song, and magical arts, but when danger threatens they show great skill with weapons and strategy. Elves can live to be over 700 years old and, by human standards, are slow to make friends and enemies, and even slower to forget them. Elves are slim and stand 4.5 to 5.5 feet tall. They have no facial or body hair, prefer comfortable clothes, and possess unearthly grace. Many others races find them hauntingly beautiful.

Class:
Clerics- Clerics act as intermediaries between the earthly and the divine (or infernal) worlds. A good cleric helps those in need, while an evil cleric seeks to spread his patron's vision of evil across the world. All clerics can heal wounds and bring people back from the brink of death, and powerful clerics can even raise the dead. Likewise, all clerics have authority over undead creatures, and they can turn away or even destroy these creatures. Clerics are trained in the use of simple weapons, and can use all forms of armor and shields without penalty, since armor does not interfere with the casting of divine spells. In addition to his normal complement of spells, every cleric chooses to focus on two of his deity's domains. These domains grants the cleric special powers, and give him access to spells that he might otherwise never learn. A cleric's Wisdom score should be high, since this determines the maximum spell level that he can cast.

 
Alignment:
Lawful Good ----- XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (34)
Neutral Good ---- XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (27)
Chaotic Good ---- XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (22)
Lawful Neutral -- XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (28)
True Neutral ---- XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (21)
Chaotic Neutral - XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (16)
Lawful Evil ----- XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (15)
Neutral Evil ---- XXXXXXXX (8)
Chaotic Evil ---- XXX (3)

I got my package today from JMJ's November Raffle, and boy was I surprised. 
 
Look at my loots! =D
 
Not only did he promptly send the prizes as soon as the holidays were over, but he also put a Series 11 Minifigure(Scientist btw) and a $15 Lego Store Card in it. 
 
Like, my goodness. This is amazing. 
 
Here's another thank you, JMJ, because this certainly was a fantastic surprise today. =D

Rage Part 2 - The Reckoning

Posted by Portal Nuvia , in Theater Dec 08 2013 · 84 views
Theater, Real Life
So.
 
That went far better than expected.
 
The meanie father from the last "Rage" entry must have heard me, because he got his son to the play on time and everything. During an OU and OSU game, for that matter, which is normally a pretty big deal in OK. I have never really cared about it, but meh, that is beside the point. =P
 
So we got a rehearsal done before we started the play at four, and everything went... okay. We had some really major screw-ups, but we corrected every one after we finished and felt fairly confident. Everyone got ready, costumes were put on, make-up was applied, we cleaned up the theater, then it was time to start.
 
...And thus began one of the best performances I have ever been a part of. Like, seriously that performance went far better than expected. We had over 100 people watching this one show, and we managed to hit every cue and every beat and scene went flawlessly. I am still in shock about just how incredible that was, and how it all worked out that well. We had about 6 rehearsals throughout the week that we missed, and yet this was by far one of the best shows I have ever been a part of putting on.
 
And then, after it all, came one of the most important moments of any semester. It was time to give out the Ethan Award.
 
The Ethan Award commemorates a member of the drama group who passed away a few years ago. This is the most prestigious award that can be given in this group, and it is a huge deal to win it.
 
I didn't win it, but I did win it a couple of years ago during my first semester with this group. However, after winning you are just taken out of the voting for the next semester. This year, though, I got second place, becoming the first person to get nominated for the award twice. And that was just insane and extremely unexpected.
 
So, all in all, I will just leave you with this.
 
TAKE THAT SNOW AND MEANIE HOMESCHOOL FATHERS WE HAD THE BEST NIGHT EVER AND THERE IS NOTHING YOU COULD DO ABOUT IT! =D

biting heads off, so mad, theater and 1 more...
(warning: the following includes excessive amounts of ranting, and an exceeding lack of spellcheck or revision. You have been warned.)
 
So.
 
Supposedly, right now, I should be on stage. We should be performing this play that we have spent the past three months perfecting. However, a couple of inches of snow came in yesterday, and this, being Oklahoma, means that everyone starts flipping out. 
 
The roads were clear by 9 o'clock this morning, and every.
 
single.
 
member.
 
of the group is ready to perform the play and brave the weather. Except for one of the core cast members father, who refuses to let him out of the house to do this. As such, my dad is in the other room, cramming to learn this other guys lines.
 
And that makes me flipping mad. So now it looks like we will just have one performance tomorrow, and this core piece of the play won't even be able to be there, it seems. And why? Because of stupid stereotypical homeschool parents and their overreacting and refusal to change their plans.
 
I kid you not, I am so mad right now. This is about as angry as I have ever been. This stupid pigheaded meanie(lol keeping it suitable for BZP) of a father better hope he never meets me, because I am very mad and I will likely yell at him and in general be a meanie. Because he was one first.
 
so, yeah. wow. at times like this I realize just how silly people can be.
