Another shout out to DeeVee and Nukaya for letting me crash at their place for 4 nights. I don't think I've ever been to a place with more Lego besides cons and stores.
Special shoutout to EmperorWhenua, Kayru, xccj, Kakaru, and that public attendee (whose name I can't remember unfortunately) for being there. It's always great to meet new BZPers. Here's to hoping we meet again.
Now I'm just hoping everyone gets to see this entry before it gets bumped by where I went last night.
All in all, a good weekend with good company. Now I'm just relaxing and recovering from the drive, and will soon get to go home and build a pirate ship.
My body is ready.
This was something like a month ago. I've called them several times, filled out another application, called some more and still gotten nothing.
But apparently they're low on available workers because they've done more interviews and those people are now being called in to fill out the paperwork.
So yeah. I'm not thrilled about this.
So yeah, what's new with me? Not much really. Well, I guess it worth mentioning that I finally got around to picking up a digital copy of Necro's album, Alien Grenade Launchers (Which personally I think it is pretty good instrumental album.). I am actually have it playing in background, while I write this.
Oh, and I been doing some house cleaning lately since I want make some space for some LEGO stuff (Mostly my Lord of Rings sets that I got like over a year ago, which I still have yet to open.) and well, I been meaning to get rid of some old junk (Boxes, old clothes, ect.).
At the moment, I am working my way through some old school stuff (Which I probably going to scan a lot of it since for some reason, I think it would be useful to keep old Math and Science stuff on my computer. *shrugs*). Oh, and I finally start to use this bookshelf for its intended purpose. Still need to transfer my Bionicle books out of Shoebox Bookshelf though. But well, it is getting there. Maybe by end of this month (If I keep at it), it will actually be presentable to show here. XD
Oh, and I found a couple of books that I should probably read. They are: "Sphere," by Michael Crichton & "Star Wars: Survivor's Quest," by Timothy Zahn. Not sure about Star Wars book though since my knowledge of Star Wars Expanded Universe is very limited and I know little to nothing about New Republic era. So yeah, not sure if starting my journey into Star Wars Expanded Universe with this book is a good idea or not.
In gaming related news, all I been playing lately is Trials and Tribulations on my 3DS (I am currently on case 3, court day 1.).
Hm...Speaking of games, anyone want an alpha key for A Hat in Time? I got a extra Steam key, so I thought I should ask if anyone wants it. If so, PM me, I guess.
Alright, that's all I really have to talk about. Thanks for taking to read this, folks. I hope you all have a great day. Talk to later, BZPers.

Finally changed Tiz's class, and I also updated Ringabel. Edea will probably switch jobs soon too.
(Microspace. Minifigs would be so cramped in something like this.)
You'll notice it looks different on the other side:
This Neo Exploriens ship was inspired by the Orion of Stargate Atlantis, and boasts a length of 103-studs and about $140 in BrickLink orders as well as use of my own pieces (a SHIP has to be over 100 studs long). At BrickFair 2011 I even lit it up:
(It's just taken me three years to finally take photos, but even with these I think I'll try another shot at it at the end of the month.)
This currently resides at the LEGO Store at Potomac Mills in Woodbridge, Virginia, in WAMALUG's Window to the Community display for March:
You've seen the other Neo 90s Space ships I've posted these past few days, including Insectoids, Robo Force, UFO, and Ice Planet 2002. All of these Neo 90s MOCs pay homage to the original themes but explore building with pieces, colors, and techniques of the present.
While I've built various space ships between this big guy and now, it still remains as one of my best works and a source of inspiration for me, making me want to build another, and better, SHIP.
Those of you who knew this blog entry was long overdue, thanks for being patient. I hope everyone likes it!
I've made a topic in the forums, but I don't mind if you post here too/instead.
More pictures can be found on BrickShelf and Flickr.
I've been commuting to my job in down town Portland from my parent's house, which is 1 hour one-way on a no-traffic day. Basically, it's a pain, so I looked into moving closer. I found a place that's reletively affordable (assuming I don't blow all my income on lego) and also close to the MAX line (light rail public transportation), so it'll be an easy commute in. Not nessessarily that much faster, but a 30-40 minute train ride beats a 60-90 minute car ride (or a 30 minute car ride followed by a 40 minute train ride, which is one option I've used.) Still, it'll be a little easier to commute daily, even tho I will lose access to my parent's car. And I'll have to pay rent and utilities and all that stuff, which is sometimes ridiculasly expensive. Oh well.
I am splitting the cost with a roommate. I met him online, and he seems okay enough, but he is new to the city, so hopefully he won't get too confused by real civilization. As long as he pays rent, doesn't burn the place down, and tolerates my Lego collecting, I'm sure it'll work out. (I've had worse roommates in the past anyway.)
So with any luck, I'll be moving in mid-April. Yay. Unfortunately, having to pay for rent has kinda pushed back my plans to buy a new computer, since my current one is merely limping along. I may still get one, but it would be like two months worth of rent to buy, so I'm cautious about the idea. (Besides, I need to save up for lego too. )
