There's been a change of plans, everyone. I've decided not to renew my BZP Premier Membership. In recent times my interest has shifted toward other things. This is a regular occurrence, so fear not - I will likely return someday. Until then, however, goodbye...
I think I'm going to go ahead and get another year of BZP Premier Membership. If nothing else, it's a way to show my appreciation for the services BZP has provided for the community over Bionicle's duration.
After some encouragement and guidance, I have created these characters for the BZPRPG. Before I made them official, I wanted to post them here to see what people thought of them and possibly improve them. To that end, if you see a flaw in either profile, or a point that could be improved upon, or just like the characters, post it here.

I am currently facing a dilemma. I became a one-year Premier Member on BZP in early January of this year. That means my membership is almost used up. The dilemma I face is whether to continue being a Premier Member and keep up with this blog. This is all tied into the greater question of what to do with myself in terms of Bionicle and Lego. You see, unlike many here, I was not a big Lego fan prior to my interest obsession with Bionicle. The end of the Bionicle line has presented me with the diff
As expected, my gift count was way down this year. However, in light of my laptop (half the reason the count was low), that's 100% okay. For those who are wondering, here's the actual list: Laptop bag $25 Barnes & Noble gift card Stocking candy (of course) Any 20 pieces from my brother's Bionicle collection $5 We had breakfast (bacon, pancakes, and eggs mixed with sausage) here, then went over to my grandmother's house around 11 for an early lunch. Since Ding and my grand
Tonight's Christmas-y event was gingerbread houses. I think mine came out pretty well, but I'll let you decide for yourself:
In other news, as you can see by the recently updated list below, Christmas shopping is nearly complete. In order to stay with budget, I decided to give my gingerbread house to my aunt and uncle.
That's about it for now, so until next time!
Christmas is now in full swing at my house. The oven has been churning out sweets of all kinds, and the tree has been decorated. Gingerbread houses are almost ready for construction, and I desperately need to finish up Christmas shopping. Here's the list again... Mother: | Item: pickup of hated furniture | Cost: freee! Father: | Item: oven glove | Cost: $1 Brother: | Item: wireless GameCube controller | Cost: $16 Sister: | Item: DSi camera flash | Cost: $16 Grandmother: | Item: image editing boo
I'm putting a temporary hold on the MOC depicted in the WIP photos below so I can cobble together an entry for Kylus' ORGANIZED Blog Contest #1, which entails building a Toa of Psionics. So far I haven't had any really brilliant ideas, but I have pulled out all of my pearl gold pieces (I know Kylus says we can use Keetorange, but I'll be darned if I'm taking the easy way out).
Today is our official Christmas shopping day. Contrary to the mostly-empty list below, I do actually have a general idea of what to get everyone, and I THINK I can afford it.
And so, armed only with $36, a 30% off any one item at Borders coupon, and his wits, Carakki set out to complete his Christmas shopping for 2009...
In other news, the temperature has been dropping around here lately. I haven't been able to build since my room is out in the garage, with no heating or real insulation.
I just finalized my budget for Christmas gifts this year, and my total came to $55. From this amount of cash I must provide gifts for each of the 11 people listed below. Basic math will tell you that this restricts each person's individual gift budget to $5, IF I distribute evenly. Here I will keep a record of gifts planned for each person, as well as the cost of their gift. Suggestions are welcome. Mother: | Item: 2010 calendar + pickup of hated furniture | Cost: Unknown x .7 + free Father: | I
Something I didn't mention in my last entry: my blog got no comments during my absence. Maybe one day I'll get comments on something other than grammatical errors.
Anyway, in celebration of the return of my Internet, I collected various images of the Hunters and made wallpapers for each one (excluding Samus):
If anyone wants, I can resize any of them to your screen's resolution, or create new ones for any Metroid theme of your choosing.
I haven't made an entry in a few days because we haven't had Internet. You see, my mom bought Christmas presents a little early this year. That coupled with a leak that jumped our water bill up to $600 meant we couldn't pay the bill on time. Hence, no Internet for three days.
But now I'm back, so I'll give a general update.
First, winter break! It'll be nice. I'm looking forward to spending time with family and relaxing with my laptop.
School, over though it may be for now, has been pre
...and it needs to come RIGHT NOW.
So, I was working on a school project (due tomorrow) earlier today. It's a book jacket, required to be at least 12x20, give or take. It had to include an illlustration for the front cover, so because I can barely draw a straight line, I decided to do mine digitally and print it at our local Kinkos. My jacket is 12x27.5, so it would have cost around $16 to print full-size (it's $7.25 per square foot).
Unfortunately, my family is experiencing some financial
