As of about a month ago in June, I celebrated my ten-year anniversary on BZPower. Ten years is a really long time! Longer than I've done just about anything else, really. Probably something to be celebrated in some fashion. At least I get a sweet Tohu spinny. Granted, for the last four years especially, I haven't exactly done much at all on BZP other than be alive, occasionally lurk, and also post a MOC now and then because college intruded frequently.
But! I have in fact graduated college, also as of this past June. This means I have time for BZP, with which I can ... lurk more actively, I suppose? I also made a thing for the latest BBCC which was destroyed horribly in the first polls (tears shed) viewable here, and have been working on some other MOCings and the things which accompany them, such as digging up the lamps used for the lightbox from their nearly-final resting places among the mountains of refuse of a distant deserted house room.
Which is all well and good that I have time for it now, since in roughly a month I'll be off to graduate school! Entirely across the country actually, in Maryland to be specific, which I've heard for a third of a year or so turns into frigid wastes as a part of the things I'm told are called seasons, experienced by people who live in places other than Southern California, where the depths of winter produce weather merely in the 70s.
And so, as Ballom continues to git hisself edycated, I will be hundreds (thousands?) of miles away from those troves of pieces used for the MOCenings, which means I'll probably in what I think AFOLs call a dark age. The grim times of no building. Alack, alack.
On the plus side, I think in years after this one I will be able to attend BrickFairs in Virginia, since my school is barely outside DC, and Chantilly is only a little further off. So I will be able to meet BZPower peoples and hang out with y'all, at least sometimes.
And, of course, I'll continue to lurk around here, maybe even posting now and again (-gasp-), and otherwise hanging around this corner of the Internet for hopefully many more years to come! Can we get a toasting glass in here or something?
Anyway, hopefully this summer I'll have some free time to MOC, since I haven't really built anything since New Year's. I still have those unused parts draft pieces, as well as a birthday present BrickLink order, so there's definitely going to be fun stuff to toy around with. We'll have to see.
Otherwise, I've been playing a lot of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate since I got my copy a few months ago. If anyone has the game and wants to hunt sometime let me know so we can set up a hunting party!
(Also I'm a bit annoyed at the removal of instant C-stick smashes, and the related bug for C-stick aerials killing momentum. But that's not too big a deal with custom controller options to work around it.)
Now, if you excuse me, I have some more Nintendo characters to beat up.

If I May Quote Myself
In response to Seran's WIP image of his Boxor MOC
Although this may be a completely wild guess, I do believe that is a picture.
In blog entry "Dlakii"
Oh my. I didn't know that they made metal sporks.
In "Is there ever a time when you can't post?"
No, since I can always to to GD and post a couple hundred times. XD
In response to "I've forgotten how to blog"
Click "Add entry". Then enter a moronic title. Then click on the text section, mash your keyboard with your fists for as long as you wish, and post it. Congratulations, you now can blog better than the majority of BZP.
In "Hardest thing to MOC"
Fluffy pink tutus. Mainly because of the slight handicap of pink Bionicle pieces not existing.
In "Talking to staff members"
Talking to staff members? Well, I'm generally okay with it as long as I have my pepper spray nearby.
In "Mask powers"
In "What did you do during the downtime"
I sat in a shadowy corner in a fetal position for five days, rocking back and forth in a crazed manner.
In "How do you imagine yourself on BZP?"
I am a Nidoking, obviously. How these stubby little claws are capable of typing on a keyboard I'll never know.
In blog entry "Bascula"
Hooray, I'm a geek.
