I've been toying around with some ideas in my brain about this project involving Kanohi masks. It is by no means going to be a complete mask collection, but more of a personal memento I want to create. Initially I wanted to include the great and noble masks together, however that is a larger aspiration that can be reviewed down the road. For now I just want to gather each of the original great Kanohi masks (this entry is partially going to serve as reference for myself). All things considered
Got to hang out away from work with friends and see some old faces. LEGO swag. The rest of my weekend consisted of getting free stuff outside of LEGO though. I got a bunch of free books, met some authors, met some celebs, got my photo taken with a favorite celebrity, bought some other stuff, and had more things signed. I nabbed a variant of the new Lady Thor, and managed to get it signed by the artist. Lots of cool stuff and cooler peeps.
Apocalyptic. What makes something post apocalyptic? Why the wardrobe for a dystopian setting? Where do you get the ensemble? How exactly do you make something fit into the theme? I'm just curious as to what other people thing should go into a post apocalyptic setting outfit wise. There are a lot of resources out there but some of it is just general and vague.
WHELP. Someone. Just had to keep talking about Star Trek Online, and I spent the day downloading/playing it... Now I'm hooked. Playing as a fairly handsome blue skinned andorian named K'ous. I've never watched Star Trek completely, but I know enough to follow along. I'm really enjoying everything so far though.
Finally let my family know I have a great job opportunity this fall, and that it means moving out on my own. The reaction I got was the complete opposite of what I expected. I was hoping they'd take it in a good way, but their response was less than stellar.
I haven't been active on BZPower a lot recently, and there have been some pretty big life reasons as to why. None of it has been blasted publicly or shared on social media, and only a few close people knew. Today at 7:43pm my best friend Olena (Disky) welcomed our little beloved Agnes into the world. We had a small ceremony early this month to celebrate our nuptials as well. Excuse me while I resume my inactive status.
Went on a totally amazing date with my nerd counterpart today. We visited the zoo, rode a train, and went for a hike. Somehow the hike was the best part because we came across this little secluded area with a waterfall we got to sit atop. We sat, talked, and eventually held hands for what seemed like forever. Afterwards, we had some pizza and hung out some more. Life is good.
If everything keeps course... I'll be a sales lead(er) once my coworker goes to her new job. It is pseudo leadership but someone has to coach, train, and schedule workers. When she was on maternity leave I filled her shoes, and now that it appears she has a better job lined up.... I'm the go-to since I have already performed the duties and still do some.
I've got a Pokemon related cosplay coming up, and I decided I wanted an egg to carry around with me. While I can minimally use a needle and thread, I haven't really made anything like this before. I found a seller online dealing in DIY Yoshi Eggs, so I purchased one and assembled it. It turned out pretty nice. It is nice and soft and fluffy and fluffy and cuddly soft. Now of course at this point you are realizing "but sisen that isn't a Pokmeon egg... that's a Yoshi egg" I present to you my v
What do you do when one of your Tumblr followers you know, you know knows who you are, but doesn't know that they know who you are actually figures out who you are and asks you if you are actually you who they know and wants to know if it is you who they know, you know?
Also known as GISHWHES! I'm thinking about signing up and doing it just for the fun of having one week of random awesomeness and fun. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=88DaqclmHjQ Just a few testimonials from the website: Plus I can share links for such things now.
I have plenty of funding and time off to do whatever I'd like for a vacation this year. I have been tossing around the idea of going to Dragon*Con or NYCC. There are pros and cons to both, and the planning for either is somewhat short notice being the events are forty-five and eighty-eight days away. There are people I know going to NYCC, but there is at least one person I know going to be at D*C. I need to try and decide so I can make a decision by the end of this week. Random reasons to atte
My bosses boss, the guy who sees over all the stores in the district area is intimidated by me. If you know me or have ever met me, I'm pretty much the least intimidating person most people know. My manager had to have his store review performed, and that involves the district manager coming in talking to the employees. The guy came in and completely avoided me and never asked me a thing. He asked my coworkers stuff to try and see if they would slip up but not me. When he left my manager talked
I finally played through Batman Arkham Asylum, ripped through Tomb Raider, and now it is time to start my third(?) play-through of Mass Effect. Say hello to Frenn Shepard, colonist, infiltrator, and a sole survivor.
Woo. I successfully passed my mind numbingly boring sales induction course. To summarize: four back to back twelve hour days of sitting in a classroom learning stuff I already know. It was a redundant course but in order to keep my job I had to go through it. I managed to get a 34.5 out of a possible 36 on the test. The average score was 34 (the highest average the instructor has ever had as a group). Personally I wanted to get a perfect score. There were three people out of the class that did.
So I purchased Tomb Raider due to the fact it was on sale from Amazon. I’m a prime member and get the super fast two-day shipping or whatever it is. I came home to the package and was sorta surprised because it was thicker than what a regular game case should be. Amazon didn’t just send the game. They sent the game that comes packaged with the collective art book you got for pre-orders. I didn’t even pre-order the game…
