Alright, so Ehksidian and I both thought that we might want to provide hints to the others partaking in the Secret Santa event. During a SS that my workplace had, my boss put up a sheet with our names on it, and we were to write down what we liked so whoever got our names would have an idea of what they'd like to get. Now, we have profile pages here, and records of our posts/topics, but that only goes so far, especially for those that haven't been here very long. Hence, this post. Here, thos

So I've finally converted the story fragment I recently dug up into a Word doc. To read it, drop down the spoiler tag, but if you're too lazy to do that, here's basically what happens: Ariadne, Stara's right-hand Matoran, talks to her friend and one of the few, non-Xi-Matoran residents of Xi-Koro, Kouki. However, there is much more to be gained by reading it. I'm not sure where this would have gone; probably somewhere in Chapter 11.

My friend Jared from my French class showed me this really weird site during lunch yesterday, called cleverbot.com. (As far as I know, there are no forum's attatched to the site; correct me if I'm wrong.) Apparently, you can have a conversation with an AI, which spits back some rather entertaining results. (We had some fun with "FALCON PAWNCH" and Pokemon. )
Oh, and I'm currently addicted to the song "Russian Roulette" by Rihanna. I need an excuse to write a songfic to it someday.
Take your username, and make up the most convoluted description of it that you can. That's your new nickname. =D Examples: Inferna Firesword: Tarnation Combustion Weapon Akaku Master of Flight: Mask of Vision Commander of Air Lord Kini Hawkeye: God Temple Eagle Ocular Japoro: Toa of Ice: Japoro Warrior of Subzero Hydrological Solid HN: Toa Mahri of Stone Mata Second Generation Zen Iceblade: Meditation Subzero Hydrological Solid Tapered Weapon I think this could catch on, honest
Scarcely a week after I have a debate with my brother about how talented Justin Bieber really is (and made that debate the subject of another school blog entry), my radio station gets his song "Somebody To Love" stuck in my head.
Thanks a lot, Kube.
EDIT: It's out of my head. However, the song that dislodged it -- "California Girls" by Katy Perry and Snoop Dog -- needs to be removed as well, so I guess this cycle never ends.
I hate starting the year on a sour note, but it's recently come to my attention that my second-in-command, Akaku, has left BZP for an unknown time span.
So, until he comes back, the Seneca need a new Second. Kini, Reep, Kagha, Japoro, and HN, if you want the job, sound off here!
At this point, I think my Ebay gambit is a lost cause. Not a single bid, so I'm a bit disappointed. However, I've got another chance at BrickCon, so I might find a buyer there.
Anyway. Moving on from that little disaster, I'm thinking about starting to take commissons once the next semester starts at the end of January. I'd probably only take two at a time, since they take a while to make, but it'd be less hit-and-miss than Ebay would be. I could do Bohrak shield/Nuparu claw rings, and I'm th
That's it. School's out for the year.
And technically, I didn't even have to show up today, since they don't take attendance on the last day.
... I probably would give a better reaction, if it wasn't for the fact that it means I'm gonna be a junior next year, and that means I'm getting old.
Welcome, one and all!
Okay, lame, I know. What did you expect?
Anyway, so, like I said, EW rocks. Why does he rock?
He bought six months of Premier Membership for me. And says, if he feels inclined, will buy more so I can get around the whole Parent barrier.
Of course, by that time I will probably have bought myself lifetime membership so he won't have to, but . . . it's a really nice gesture, eh?
(don't worry, it's backed up on my USB)
But seriously, I'm already writing Wings, HitM, Keymasters, and my NaNo thing (speaking of, I am so far behind I can't bear to show my face around there right now) ... yet I posted a new story on another fanfic site.
I have officially lost my sanity.
For those of you that care, here's the gist of it:

On Mythbusters last night ("No Pain, No Gain"), the crew tested the myth that women had a higher tolerance for pain than men by dunking the hands of fifty unsuspecting volanteers into water that was just one degree above freezing.
The result? Myth Confirmed. In your face, Sexism!
So I came back about an hour ago. Whoo.
And I have to say, it was ROCKAWESOME.
I'll post picture links when I finish uploading them to B-shelf Pictures are at the bottom of this entry, but in the meantime, I'll just describe it with words, and hopefully that will suffice for now. *ahem*
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.
As if to top off my crummy day, I have to deal with all the people who got Halo: Reach -- which is the one game that made me want to trade in my 360.
Gah. Have fun with it, people; I'll have to wait a while before I can start playing.
(Also, no, I haven't gotten my preordered copy of A Thousand Suns yet -- fail)
That'll teach you not to leave me unsupervised in there. I went in there looking for Halloween costume components, and only came out with one.
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.
