It started with a methane leak in the science wing (don't ask) yesterday, and it ended in the Excalibur Hotel's Tournament of Kings dinner/show tonight. Granted, I'm not going back to Washington until Monday, but ... today was a good day. B)
(And no, I'm telling you any real details. After all, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. )
*is playing third section of Ridak's Desert in Bionicle Heroes*
*walks into room with Axxon in it*
*shoots Bohrak in front of me*

*beats Axxon in invincible Hero Mode*
It's almost too easy ...
I just got back from taking by brother and his friend around the neighborhood (taking my own bag with me, naturally -- I have the opinion that you're never too old to trick-or-treat ). My fingers are a bit cold, but it was actually warmer this year.
Anyway, it was good (though we had a bit of trouble picking out who was home -- not everyone had a jack-o-lantern), and right now I'm updating Break of Day. It'll probably be my last BZP update in a while, though, since NANOWRIMO! starts at midnig
So I keep hearing about Nanowrimo from people here that are doing it. It sounds like something I could pull off ... I just have two questions.
What the Karzahni is Nanowrimo, and is it on some website?
It's not bad, actually, though it'll take some time for me to get used to Kirby being made up of yarn now. My main peeve is that Zen keeps trying to boss me around when we play together, but that has nothing to do with the game itself. I'm told Meta Knight will show up, which will make my day when we get there.
Also, I updated Wings. [/side note]
Here we are, the students of our school, eating lunch all together and excited for the assembly ... and then some smart one decided to pull the fire alarm.
Way to kill the mood.
Thankfully, the assembly is still on (though we have a severely shortened lunch thanks to the whole incident, much to the distress of those who were still eating at the time), so I'll see you later.
We have tolerated Zarayna for a long time now, my friends. But he continues to try and subvert what makes us great. Just moments ago, Akaku informed me he has broken into Seneca's Keep again and stolen our refrigerator!
Too long, Toa Seneca. Far too long now, and we will rise up to reclaim our glory from an upstart that would humiliate us!
To arms, Toa Seneca!
(OOC: For those starting to get worried, this is strictly 'kidding around'. If this was for real, there would be nothing left of
Chapter One of Project Harvest Moon (otherwise known as Break of Day) is almost complete! While I can promise that it will begin before Saturday, I address certain members of the Toa Seneca (they know who they are) when I ask to complete their parts soon. I especially say this towards Kagha, assuming he's even reading this, since most of the other have started if not finished their portions.
Let's do this.[/probably failing motivational speech]
To the victor, go the spoils
(Apologies in advance for the huge pictures and slow loading time; I haven't been able to figure out how to shrink them down. >.<)
So yes, there's some of the pictures I took of my Bronze Kirop, which xccj kindly sent back to me from BrickCon (thanks again, buddy!). The fifth picture isn't of Kirop per se, but they were things I got from his presense. I bought the green Kaukau from BrickCon; the other three were a
Good News: I found a Nintendo 64 version of Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time at Half-Price Books A Halloween store near aforementioned bookstore gave me ideas for more nonfunctional jewelry (imagine mini battleaxes hanging from your earlobes) I found out Deadliest Catch won't die from lack of Sig and the Hilstrands, because they're back in the show. =D I finally got around to typing up a SS I've been working on since forever Saw a really cool bird exhibition at the library today, which included
New season started last night. It was Dog Myths Part 2, with Beat the Bloodhound (Part 2) and Beat the Sniffer Dog. In the end, though, the Mythbusters just couldn't beat the canines and their handlers. B)
Next week: Apparently, they're doing tornado myths again, and calling in the Stormchasers from the Discovery Channel show to help them out.
I already heard this particular rumor, but apparently while speaking to Oprah, J.K. Rowling hinted she might be writing another book for HP.
I'm not sure if she was talking about the encyclopedia (or, as she called it, the Scottish Book) or an actual novel, but it's interesting to think about.
Wings Chapter 7: Speed of Light -- 1/3 done
HitM Chapter 9 -- 1/4 done
Project Harvest Moon (Halloween epic) -- 3/7 of planning complete
The last one is of deep concern to me. Of the seven Toa Seneca who agreed to take on Project Harvest Moon (as I call it), only three of us have finished it to a point that I can write about their segments. I'm hoping that Chapter 1 can be posted before 10/31 (you know, Halloween), but at this rate, it is uncertain.
First and foremost: *kicks everyone who yelled "This is Sparta!" into pit, since this was BrickCon*
Secondly, that was awesome madness that went down in the Exhibition Hall today. Sadly, I wasn't able to get pictures, since the camera my mom loaned me died when I got there (), so no pictures from me.
That being said, my time at Con today was probably the best out of the three years I've gone, possibly because of the presense of EmperorWhenua. Case in point: Our BZP Meet-and-Greet had a sma
Yes, I know I'm a couple of days from going. But, as it started today, I felt like posting a poem I wrote last year which centered on last year's Con. (Reason I haven't posted it until now was because I wasn't sure where it would go. )
The line stretches out for blocks
In the city’s autumn chill
Beneath the shadow of the towering Needle
But we don’t notice or care
It’s what we’ve been waiting for
Parents trying to keep them in line
