Your Daily Safety Briefing

Gather 'round ladies and gents, because it has come to my attention that nobody has been giving you poor chaps regular safety briefings.   That, that is a crime.   Here's a simple one for you to start off with:   When you are about to head out to volunteer to run a parking lot for 500+ cars for a classic car show, do not grab the bottle of expired sunblock to use. Grab the bottle of new stuff, even if it says it only lasts for 3 hours, versus the 6 for the expired one. Because it won't matter

Well Then

Second Interview went amazing, the guy told me that I was one of the best people he's ever interviewed, and they would let me know Monday.   They called Tuesday, and told me that THEY WEREN'T INTERESTED IN EMPLOYING ME. They said I was overqualified for the position, and they had no management positions open.     I was applying for a starter-position.

Thinking of writing a comedy...

Plenty of material in the Toy lore to make fun of, twist, and make ridiculous. Heck, some of it is already pretty ridiculous(Planet gets shattered, into two perfectly sized moons that take all the jungle and water with it? RIIIIIGHT.).   Of course, I am a romantic. If I'm going to write something longer than a short story, I'm going to interject romance into it one way or another(This, coming from the guy that's fallen hopelessly in love with his best friend(and can't even tell her(long story.)

The Dog is Screaming

Like always. He sits at the door to my room, screaming and crying because my pig won't let him into the room. Then my pig sometimes chases him away to great noise and event.     Needless to say, this makes writing, or doing anything, a hard task.

The Art of Moderating

No, this isn't a place to discuss recent, but unfortunate events. No, this isn't an attack on the great staff we are lucky to have. These are four rules I've created for myself, over my time as a moderator(s) and even once as an Admin of various sites. And I feel I should share them.   1. Be respectful. Always. Even when emotions run high, don't attack. It's not worth it, and it doesn't help anybody. Give the staff your respect, and if they are worth their salt, they'll return it.   2. Be acco

The Arrival of Logan, Ft. LEGO Batman

Saw three films recently, Arrival, Logan, and LEGO Batman.   Gotta say, all three really blew my expectations out of the park and were fantastic films.   Arrival was one of the best Sci-Fi films I have seen in a long time. You know why? It has a lot less to do with "DIE ALIEN SCUM" and more with actually just communication. It was fascinating and I loved it so much. The big reveal at the end and how it all played out just made it perfect. Definitely recommend seeing it.   Logan was very good

Suspense

Early December.   Know what that means, right?   That means the selection of 24 participants is going to be announced soon for a Civic Leadership school in Washington D.C. Yours truly, Atlas, is one the many that entered and submitted an essay(for a topic that will not be discussed here.).   I am on the edge of my seat. Wish me luck.

Still not over FO:4

Yeah, beating a dead horse but I'm still not over what FO:4 should have been. Could have been. Graphics were great, I loved the settlement building(but I think they should have cut down on the amount of settlement locations...), the Gunplay was great, but other then that....it kinda sucked. Period.   Ah, oh well. Can't have a good thing all the time.

So, a quick recap of Bionicle 2001-2004?

So read the storyline for Bionicle, 2001-2004(?)....this is what I got from it.     Makuta is jealous of Mata Nui and slips him some sleeping pills, and the island of Mata Nui is supposedly made cold and crops don't grow(wheat? Corn? They don't say.). Anyways, the Turaga, the old ones, get Takua to summon the Toa Mata from the heavens to show up and kick Makuta butt. Turns out falling from the heavens makes you forget everything, even your name.   They recover, they kinda beat Makuta, and then

Rouge One

While I'm not too pleased with the idea of a flush of Star Wars movies(my poor wallet), this one does look interesting. I hope it can provide more light on the origins of the Rebellion in movie versus the books and comics.   Also, running at AT-ATs? Do you want to die? Obviously.

Restart

Gotta get things done again, even if it's some stupid little story in the Library. This place was a great stress release for me, and I need it again definitely.   Went from one job to another to another in the span of three weeks, and just facing that grand ole uncertainty about the future.   What's next for this here site? Another story? The BZPRPG? I don't know.   Maybe both, just overwhelm myself again. Seems like a great idea to me.

Recap Before Christmas

Didn't get accepted into the Civic Leadership Academy. That sucks, but I'm actually on a waiting list if anybody drops out.   Saw Star Wars. It was a funny, enjoyable movie. Did it bring anything new or have any original plot points from Episode IV? No.   I also laugh at those that do last-minute Christmas shopping. I finished all of mine before the 6th! It cost me about $500 though....   Production of Fallen City is moving along slowly, and plot points are being written down for the Ark #351

Really people?

So, I decided, "Hey! I really don't know much about this Bionicle business at all, and dragging myself through a wiki is no fun, so let's go read discussion topics on BZPower! Might be worth it!"   So I sat down and started digging through Storyline, Bionicle Discussion, and so on.....     Good Lord, people, it's a toyline. It's a toy, it's a toy, and will be nothing more than a toy. And you guys are fighting? Insulting each other? Some of this stuff is almost on par with the comment sections

Post-Basic and @Tech School

It's been a while.   A long while. Not exactly sure of the time frame to be honest, but it may be far too long.   Well, where was I? Air Force Basic Training, 323rd Training Squadron, Lackland AFB, Texas. Had a fantastic time. Grew a lot. Lost 15lbs, almost made honor grad, and met some great people(and some awful people.).   Now, I'm at Tech School for Weather. Meteorology. Cloud science. Keesler AFB, Mississippi. I have about 6 1/2 months ahead of me and I'm looking forward to getting past
