The kids have seen Castle in the Sky and Castle of Cagloistro (with Lupin III). They are both anime and good to watch. Very different from eachother though! Hey, I just realized I get PBSE points for those...sweet. (I'll worry about those later.)
Anyways, off to other Language Camp things. It's a fun time, glad it's only a week, but it is still fun.
Friday night I went with everyone (Shannon, Chris, Jenette, Michelle, Amber, Aaron) to the show in Lawrence. I saw the Famed, Stuck on Broadway, and Ludo. Sadly, since we didn't get any pics we me or us with the band members, no PBSE points. But I did go to Pochi with everyone but Amber and Aaron. So, Mission #43: Get Tea Bubbles, is accomplished. I got a passion fruit smoothie and then a...something else...but I can't remember what it was! I promise I got two drinks though! So +350 points!

So I had nothing to say yesterday, not much to say today, and will be gone for a week so probably not much for a while. Hope you all have a great week!
Mission #98: Watch a movie + 50 points
This time I cooked Romano Chicken. It was pretty good. It was much more normal than the chicken I made a few days ago, but good. It tasted like the breaded chicken my mom used to make, only stuffed with cheese and ham.
I watched Startup.com. Shannon likes the movie. It's a documentary on govworks.com. Kind of interesting.

Then it hit me, baseball cards! I went to Wal-mart and bought a package of the plastic pages used to hold trading cards. It works great! You can see all the pictures and the backs and they are protected. The only thing is, some are smaller and so you can see the picture behind it. But really, it is muy better than fingerprinted pictures in a ziploc baggie. I am very proud of myself for the idea and feel free to use it!
"'I predict that by the year 2020, that being the year of 'perfect vision,' we will have Holo TV in our homes,' said Dr. Michael Huebschman, a postdoctoral researcher in Dr. Garner's lab and one of the developers of the technology."
Well that is pretty cool. While looking through random blogs I stumbled upon My Daily News Choice. That is where I found a post for the article. The article has a link to Dr. Skip's web-page which has some muy fancy pictures on it. But really, 2020 is only 15 years away. I'm only gonna be thirty some and my kids are only gonna be about 10. That is crazy to think about.
Lahmanian forces fought in a large battle against an army of High Elves. The Elves brought with their first unit of Elven spearmen. The Vampire's zombies attached the Elves and fought long and hard until eventually only one man stood. That man was a zombie with a greenish-blue hue to his skin. As celebration, the zombie took the Elven banner and used it as a warning to all other armies.
And that is why it is based on a High Elf banner of Shannon's with some new zombie-y art work.
Mission #100: Cook a new food +50 points
Mission #98: Watch a movie + 50 points
I watched Reign of Fire while painting. It is okay. Not a great movie, but not bad. The idea is new (to me at least) and pretty entertaining. It was worth 7$.

Thomas was gone, so Shannon joined the battle between Micah and I. Micah's Orcs killed all but 4 of my ghouls. Yikes. But he didn't get any of his units in my deployment zone, so it was a tie.
Micah and I played a quick pitch battle. I changed my army some. I took out the bats and upgraded to a Level 2 necromancer and gave my Vampire Thrall a dispell scroll. The outcome, all the orcs died! Holy cow. I won. Micah rolled kinda bad and that wasn't helpful.
After clean-up and purchasing a box of Skeleton Achers for Shannon and a box of Grave Gaurd for me, we went to Chipotle and now home. Good day so far. The trip to GC was nice.
Mission #69: Visit Family
Got this one again. Since we stayed with Rhonda this time...+500 points
Mission #99: Eat Out

Office Space (great movie!), Reign of Fire (for watching while painting), and Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (wee! fun). Then we went to Rhonda's and slept. Then woke up and ate sandwiches. Then went to Target. Bought Futurama Volume 3 and Saving Private Ryan. Then Sonic and back to Rhonda's for some Futurama. At Sonic, I got a cream slush. So Jamie, I did it. I tried your mixture (at least I'm pretty sure I did) and yes. It is good. I will probably get it again in the future. Thank you. :)
Saturday we went to a friend's wedding and then had Grandma's party. Afterwards, we packed up, said good-bye to Rhonda and then went to see Andy's place. He recently moved in, about 1 month ago. It's nice! He has an extra bedroom, a large living room, a good sized fenced in yard and a covered patio. Very nice! I wish I lived somewhere better. I am so tired of Jardine! Ack!
I watched Miracle. Plus, Shannon watched it with me. It's a true story of the 1980 USA ice hockey team winning the Olympic gold. Shannon bought it for me for my birthday (about, oh 8ish months ago!) and I just watched it tonight. Very good. I really like sports and they did a good job of making you want to watch the game even though you know America wins the gold. Fun.
I looked up. It wasn't until 1998 that NHL players were allowed to play in the Olympics. So, we won with only college players while the Soviets (and others) could have professionals (basically since it's communist they didn't really get paid). Anyway, good movie. Glad I finally watched it.
I miss hockey. I hope the NHL is back next year. Awesome Av's or no, as long as we can watch the games, it don't matter. Also, I look forward to a good year with K-State. Yep. I like hockey.
On a side note...I am hungry.

Anyways, Scantron training today was so much more useful than the original one I had. Scantron is a company and our school district uses their web-based test as a pre and post test for all of our students (or secondary students at least). Today we learned a lot more of how to read the scores and how to use the features it has. Pretty useful, and I get a small pay for it. Yay.
On to the rest of summer. No more school stuff until August 8th if I'm lucky!
We'll we got a new tv and finished the Sonic mission. So, Mission #6: Check. +600 points. Yesterday I got one of my favorites, a Green Apple Sprite. Yum!
Also, I've met all the requirements for Mission #23. I've campaigned at Patch and Crows for long enough. Granted it is not over, but I get my points no matter what happens from here on. So, check. +700 points.

- 6-8: Coke Slush.
- Kind of disappointing. It was coke with slush ice. So it tasted alright, but not like a coke slush. Probably won't get again.
- 6-9: Watermelon-Cherry Slush.
- Kind of odd. It was really flavored. Pretty good, if you like Watermelon-Cherry Life Savers candy, you'd like this drink.
- 6-10: Orange Slush.
- I've been doing...not very good. I don't really like this either. It tastes like a lollipop. Too fake and the after-taste is kinda gross too. So sad.
Mom didn't come up tonight due to the rain. So I'll see her tomorrow morning.
Not only that, I gained by PBSE points as well. :) Mission #100: Cook a new food. +50 points

Then we played Super Tennis! Rock, rock on! I really enjoy playing that. I don't think I explained Super Tennis very good last time. It's a great game, if you like tennis, but are not very good, give it a go! You get 3 people a side. It is tennis in that there is rackets, a ball, it can only hit on the ground once, and you hit it over the net. But it is like volleyball because you have 3 chances to get it over, you rotate, you can't hit it twice in a row, and your serve can go anywhere. It's very fun. The only other rules we added are that you can't return a serve directly. It must bounce before going over, be it on the ground or on a second racket, but it must hit 2 things before going over. Very fun game. Very fun.
This is Chris just around hitting the ball. That is Amber and me in the pic. See, 3 a side = fun!
As for Sonic, yep. I got a Cherry Slush, which I've oddly never had before. Not too shabby! Only 5 days left then I get my points!
This guy's blog is really cool! He has all sorts of games. I've only tried Twinoo and Maeda Path, but they are both fun, Maeda Path is better than Twinoo. You should go check it out.
Here is a fun kinda game. It gives you a simple math problem (for your left brain) and a simple color problem (for your right brain). You need to solve both of them before time runs out. New problems quickly come and the first "side" to miss 3 problems will end the game. Give it a go!
- I finished 2 Dark Elves (they are Aaron's but he is letting me paint them)
- I played 3 days each with 2 families. They are random and have 5 kids. One of the dads has a mullet. Iew.
- I did not do very good today. I hit too many trees and not enough accuracy. To see my scores check out Aaron's blog. I'm "N."
- Working on PBSE I got a lime slush today. Very good. Shannon even didn't say "gross"!
Then I painted some. And I think I am gonna plan to go to St. Louis. Jenette starts classes soon, and I figure we'd go with them. So I'll hafta ask. It may be soon, like Wednesday. I don't know...I want to go though. St. Lois Mills is fun!
The PBSE mission for Sonic is still going. Yesterday I got a Pineapple Sprite. I have never had it before and thought it was alright. Shannon said it was gross. It had real pineapple in it.
Before Alma, we stopped and took some pictures. Then the radio said the storm was headed towards...Alma. So we went further sout. While driving through Alma, the tornado sirens went off! Well golly! Eventually they went off and we went to a quick stop for a break before driving some more. (By the way Jamie, the quick stop had soft-serve and slushie, but I still had my Sonic drink.) Here is a pic from just outside Alma.
Okay, its been just over a week since I dyed my hair. It lasted for the whole time (but not very blue after the first wash). I did not wear a hat and it was not a natural color (+200 extra pts). No one mentioned it that I didn't know though.

And here is one of my favorite pieces. It is a native curse encounter marker for the Lustria campaign I am playing with Shannon and Patch and Crows.
Sunday the scenery will see its first battles!
If you can't see the pic very well, click on it an Flickr has an option to view "all sizes". Then you can see it a little bigger.

"Some may worry about the prospect that political operators will generously spray the crowd with oxytocin at rallies of their candidates," said neurologist Antonio R. Damasio of the University of Iowa, who has long studied the neurobiology of human emotions and who wrote a commentary accompanying the study.Hormone Spray Is Found To Bolster Trust in Others
Imagine if it worked? That would be nuts. Basically brainwashing us to do things we would not normally do. Yikes.
Threadless T-Shirts - Darth enjoyed gardening, by Glennz
That would be a fun t-shirt to wear.
In the summer my friends and I change our sleep cycle. It is very warm and humid in
This is how I know I’m on summer break. :)
Mission #99: Eat out Done +50
This weekend we chilled at Newgens and spent the night. (See pics in previous post). As for the eating out, we went to FreeState for long enough. I got broccoli cheddar soup and salad. Not very fancy, but good none the less.
Total thus far: 2200
We had plans for sushi. I have wanted sushi for quite some time now and I have no means to getting it here in Manhattan. So at Newgens, we made sushi. Giant Sushi.
Then we played Gauntlet and I got tired and went to sleep while the boys finished the game. And good news Newgen, they are making a new game! Gauntlet Seven Sorrows. Sweet.
To sleep and wake up. Tuesday we ate at Qdoba. A version of Chipotle where they don't wrap their burritos as well. Tastes good though. Walked around Mass street. Got Wax Sculptors tools. That will help me when dealing with green stuff and my models. Yay. We looked for screen printing ink, but made no purchases. More thought and research needs to go into this task.
Jenette and Chris showed up. We played some disk golf until it rained us out. I got a new disk that is supposed to go straight and roll. Great fun.
We ate at FreeState then returned to Newgens for some AntiGrav.
