Title: The HOPEFUL thread: Be happy here!
Post by: PaperLuigi on April 20, 2006, 04:59:28 PM
I've looked at BP's thread, and it's great, don't get me wrong. But I'm tired of complaining, so I've made a thread where you came come in and explain everything that's good with you right now. Like, did you find a 20 dollar bill on the floor today? Did you pass that stupid History test? And do you actually LIKE the trix rabbit?

It's amazing how history can repeat itself.

I just took a shower and I feel pretty good about it, my face is nice and dry and my scalp is breezy beautiful covergirl.

Ah, nice topic.
I was supposed to write a 20 minute speech as James Monroe to present to the class... It was 2 pages long (size 12) and looked OK. When I actually gave it, it was 8 minutes and 50 seconds long. But it was actually one of the better speeches, longer than some of the really good and long-seeming ones. Perhaps this generation is just really dim, aside from me and other select people. I live in a place where the dim ones clot.

Thanks, BP.

Hmmm, well........I'm going on a weekend long trip to Galveston Island tommarrow with my friends. Sure, it isn't like last years trip (we went to Florida) but at least I can get outta Dodge for a while.

I got my room clean. My dad promised me $50 if I cleaned it and kept it clean until our vacation. That's $50 closer to my replacement DS!
Also, my sister got a PS2 for her graduation, and at the time it was $180. If the Revolution is cheaper than that, I can ask my paernets not to get me anything until its release!
My dad's going to teach me to drive soon, so I'll be ready to get my license in a couple of years and be okay with my learner's permit! I want to not kill pedestrians!

My mom said that she can't teach me to drive. She said my big sister has to because she gets to paranoid when teaching her children to drive (or anyone else o_o').

The new building I'm working for is giving me a hire pay then any previous ones I have worked. My pay is estimated to be around $1000 a month. That's not including the money my parents will probably "borrow" from me but it's still a lot. Therfore, I can afford everything I've been pawing and drooling at before but I couldn't get before.

I have tickets to a SmackDown taping. Unfortunately, it's way high up in the top of the arena, BUT the dude that sold us our tickets can try to get us better seats if we're one of the first 300 people to get there. So uh, yeah yay!

Enjoy life's simple pleasures, like food in the kitchen.  Also enjoy life's unimaginably complex joys, like the creation of new life.  Congratulations, Luigison!

I just beat Resident Evil 4, without cheating or using a walkthrough!  Now I can send it back and get Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time!

I had this rad to the max dream where I had, like, a Desert Eagle, and there were these aliens, but I was out of ammo, so my pet monkey, what's his name... oh, yeah, Jingles, came out, and he had, a think, a rocket launcher, so he blew up the aliens, but then the queen alien came and she was all "WWRRRRAAAAAGHHHKKKKK!!!" so Jingles shot her flashing weak point but then she made all these tentacles come out, so I got some magic flame ammo for my Desert Eagle and I shot her flashing weak point and then she summoned more aliens so we killed those but a few carried Jingles away so I was all "NOOOOO!" and I rescued him but they bit him on the leg, so I requested a helicopter and he was airlifted out of the area but the queen attacked the helicopter so I grabbed Jingles' rocket launcher and said "Say hello to my little friend" or a similar one-liner, and then blew her up and the Earth was saved. Then i woke up.

Happy birthday, MSM! (It's funny that I always read that as MSN the first time)  What's the picture on your shirt btw?  I can make out Earth and the cross but not the two guys in white.  Oh well.

G-Dawg: Sweet.  I need to get some friends on TMK but I'm probably the biggest Mario fan that I know.

I just got back from Chicago and saw the most awesome musical ever:  Wicked!  It was absolutely amazing, and quite funny in a lot of parts too.  I would recommend anyone and everyone to go see it.

Yeah!  I'm going to go see the musical! *drives to Chicago and doesn't know where the dukar to go next* Ugh!  I knew I should have asked what the name of the musical was first!

Jman: What kind of books are you going to write?

Anyway... I'm happy that today is the National Day of Prayer, that I'm almost done with my agonizing college work and that spring is here and winter is dead!!  I'm also real excited about the surprise I might give here tomorrow. ;)

Not to mention, I got Majora's Mask from Gamestop today. The cartridge is in perfect condition, golden, and has a holographic label. I don't think that means anything bad at all.

So yes, G-Dawg and I will be at Magic Mountain tomorrow, and I won't be on until about 10 PM. I'd BETTER get to ride everything and not get sunburn, and everything will turn out perfectly. PERFECTLY. Except I don't have my DS. That's the ONLY not-cool thing, but it's a charter bus.
Not to mention, I got Majora's Mask from Gamestop today. The cartridge is in perfect condition, golden, and has a holographic label. I don't think that means anything bad at all.

I think every thing turned out alright, don't you BP. We went on 20 rides in 7 hours...which is good considering that it's Magic Mountain we're talking about. I didn't get sunburned, and the charter bus was better than expected. It had TABLES for crying out loud!!!

Here's all the good stuff that happened to me yesterday.
Ok, so it's the last week we have for bowling, right... that's not cool, but here's what is: The bowling was free (usually it's $5 a week), we each got a ticket for $5 free at the snack bar which also had a number on it for a drawing. I won the second drawing and got a $15 gift card for Target (that's $15 closer to a DS lite). After that, we started rainbow bowling. Every so often, whit pins got replaced by orange, yellow, or green ones. If the yellow pin were in front and you got a strike, you get a dollar. If the orange one was in front and you got a strike, that's 75 cents. If the green one was in front and you got a strike, thet's 50 cents. I got 75 cents from an orange-pin-scenario. Not only that, but if you left the 7, the 5, or the 10 pin standing and no others on the first ball, you'd get a quarter. This happened to me about 7 times. So I made $17.50 while saving $10 and doing one of the things I love to do most. Also, I got a 141 on the last game (of I think 6, maybe 7)

25-0? How does a grade school baseball league even allow teams to get that unbalanced?

25-0? Not even our team get's whupped that bad! Yikes! Anyway, we beat a team 90-0 once. Of course, this was wrestling, not Baseball. You score 6 points for your team every time an opponent is pinned. That's what happend, and there were 15 guys. 15X6=90

Oh yeah...WE TIED YESTERDAY TOO! We could've won, but I walked like 5 people in the last inning and they tied. But I was 4 for 4 with 3 doubles and a single.

You should be glad. Middle School was three years of terrible experiences, low grades and fake friends for me. Luckily, High School let me get back on track, find my real friends, and let me be myself, by which I mean talk about cartoons and wrestling without being labeled simple minded, and draw random, often disturbing, images again without having people on my case.
Title: Re: The HOPEFUL thread: Be happy here!
Post by: BP on June 03, 2006, 01:10:09 PM
Your middle school must've been pretty crappy, then. I mean, ours was in some places, but the two of us had far above average grades and a fine group of friends. We'll meet new friends in high school for sure, but our group will likely not split apart even though we're not all going to the same one.

Pretty crappy isn't the word. It was worse than that. I'm so glad I don't go anywhere near my middle school friends anymore. One moved away and he was like the jerkiest of all. The other goes to the same school as mine, but I try to avoid him. He was pretty uptight and he compensates for a lot of things. I also don't have to deal with his creepy little sixth grade friend who constanly tried to latch herself onto me. My grades were probably horrible because I wasn't motivated at all during those 3 years and my morale was also low. And my 7th grade english teacher was a hippy. And I just suck at Algebra and Geometry. Not to mention the many times I had an idiot moment during those 3 years.

Well, time to bury the bad memories *digs hole and drops middle school yearbook, old backpack, progress reports and projects in it*. Me = Happiness-ness-ness.

Ok, to fit with the title of the topic: I HOPE that in high school I meet another hardcore Mario fan to play my DS with. My friends are, as I said, good ones, but only 2 have GameCubes and one has a DS but took it to school only once last year. I played SM64DS with him but he was no challenge. Since my Wifi doesn't seem to work, having a friend to play multiplayer with in the same general vicinity would be the next best thing.

Wow, I never knew your middle school life was so crappy. You never really talked about it. Fortunately, middle school was pretty good for me. Of course, it felt different moving to another neighborhood and not knowing anybody. I did manage to meet a few good friends, but I only keep in touch with a few of them. I also met some nice people in 9th grade. Then I had to move again. >:( Why do I have to keep moving when I find good friends?! Anyways, I'm not trying to go out on a rant or anything.

I DO hope that I can get Wi-Fi at my house soon. I can get it at school, but not at home. I mean sure, pwning n00bs at Tetris DS is fun at school, but I wish I could do it whenever I want. I know it sounds crazy, but I almost wish I didn't have summer vacation. Then I can stay at school and mooch off their Wi-Fi.

As much as I hate it when Yahoo! News decides that random tripe about celebrities is the most important story of the day, I had a massive laugh at this one:

HA (http://news.yahoo.com/s/eo/20060616/en_celeb_eo/19287)

I hate Beyonce. Not, I hate her "music" (which I do, with such a passion that I'll go to any length, including attempting to knock myself unconscious, to make it stop when it is played) -- I hate her PERSONALLY. It stems from a deep-rooted sense I got from Destiny's Child's eariler works combined with her current image. Hard to describe without a ten paragraph diatribe. Reading about her getting completely outfoxed [pun semi-intended] by a bunch of PETA freaks gave me a hearty laugh. Ha ha HA.

Did I mention that I really, REALLY hate Beyonce Knowles?

Destiny's Child became really unpopular about... 3 years ago. At least where I live. Almost the entire school (except for the 5th graders) hates her and Britney Spears.

Some other things I'm happy about...

Really. Undescribable. I mean, I loathe Britney Spears and Paris Hilton and the ilk, and then you have Beyonce/DC, who are in an obscenely different league of hatred for reasons I can't even explain very well.

Whereas I geniunely hate them for personal reasons.

I once got kicked out of a McDonald's for swearing at a cardboard cut-out of Destiny's Child and coming within an inch of punching it out completely.

I hate history and always have... I mean, the ancient Egyptian stuff and Medieval and Renaissance eras were all interesting to a point, but How is it important? Teachers say "Because, it helps us learn from past mistakes." As far as I can see, we Americans can't get enough of war... I have a feeling that chemistry will be one of those things I'm good at... if I have a good teacher and not another Mr. Belisle. I'd love to have a teacher like Ferris Bueller's History teacher (the one played by Ben Stein), he talked faster than Mr. Belisle EVER did. No kidding.

I don't ever have to get braces.  :)
Me either. My teeth grew in perfectly straight except one that's just at the wrong angle. It's nothing huge or important. :D

I never needed braces either, although I have had 12 cavities in the last year and a half.

Supposedly, bad genetics are to blame.

I once had 8 cavities in one visit. Boy, did I learn to brush my teeth after that. I have had 10 cavities total.

My braces come off Tuesday. I absolutely can't wait! The best part is how I've only had them on for a year and a half.

I had braces for a year and a half, but I was apparently allergic to the metal because I broke out a lot, but I got them off, I cleared up more or less, and I don't care if I still have a space in my teeth from my extra tooth!  As for cavities, I never kept track, but I don't have any now, but my teeth hurt when I bite cold things.  Oh well! :D

The Chef: You had both Taco Bell and KFC for lunch?  I guess you can eat more than I can!

I'm happy because I'm switching from doctor's medication to treatments from a chiropractor that incluede back adjustments, special shoe soles for my flat feet, gross cod liver oil, and some other liquid that doesn't taste bad.  It's kind of expensive stuff but I'm going to go with it and see if it helps any.  Hopefully these things can make me healthier and save money on some prescriptions.

I do take a few doctor medications but they're for minor things (like my thyroid and acne problems).  Oh yeah, and I learned that chiropractors are more than back doctors; they're spinal cord doctors and you're spinal cord affects your entire body!

[Off-topic] I can say from experience that Popeyes is the best cajun place I've been too. They spice their chicken with cajun spices and it is spicy enough for enjoyment, and not spicy enough to taste bad. I heart it. In other words, their chicken & other food items are very tasty.

I LOVE Paper Mario.  It is one of my all-time favorite Mario games.  Here's another fact.  A long time ago the Seven Star Spirits gave a pair of magical chests to the royal family of the Mushroom Kingdom for reasons unknown.  In Paper Mario Peach could have actually hid in one of the chest and waited until someone opened the otherone to let her out.

Pee Wee's Playhouse on Adult Swim is true, since WS has been heavily advertising it whenever they have a chance. As much as I hate that it goes against their mission statement, it's at least better than Saved By The Bell reruns.

On another CN related note, after watching the OP and the henshin sequences, I now have no doubts over Powerpuff Girls Z. It's definitely not Craig McCracken's masterpiece, but it's visually appealing and very energetic. The differences are pretty huge, but it's no Loonatics Unleashed. Now I just need to download the first episode.

Finally, the great overlord and master of the universe (Maddox) is coming to California. I will gladly do whatever it takes to see this man and lick his boots. Oh, and get my book signed too.

Well this isn't hopeful...but I'm am here to be happy. I had a pretty good 4th of July, with the exception of the cheap crappy fireworks we used. The thing that made it better was, instead of using sparklers, we used road flares...so they lated about 10x longer. And after we lit the fireworks, we put the remains in a pile and made a bon fire by burning them with flares. This week/weeken is the county fair, and that's always fun. Plus I invited a friend to come with us, and most likely my cousins are going to be there. So this is going to be one of the most exciting weeks of the summer.

Well, a while back I posted about needing three more fillings in my teeth. Now, when I first found out about these fillings, I was told that I'd need to get them filled in two appointments because they were in completely different parts of my mouth. However, when I went in today to get them filled, because I requested that the dentist not use novacaine before drilling (I've found that novacaine does absolutely nothing to change how much drilling hurts, and it only takes effect after all the dental work is done, and it's a very annoying feeling. It is also injected into the gum with a syringe, and I don't like needles/syringes very much.) -- he was able to get all three done in one session, and I don't even have to go back to get anything else done.

I feel as if I can trust Greenpeace.  I truly believe that they are doing everything they can to help in the most peaceful way possible.  I think this man is forgeting about different solutions to the problem and is not focused on animal welfare like Greenpeace is.  He seems to forget that not everybody in Greenpeace thinks exactly the same and is losing track of future focus because he seems to be to focused way too much on the present.  He seems to be taking things maybe a few people have said, and blowing it up into a giant fiasco.  The Greenspirit group is also way to small in order to do anything good for the environment.  The website says nothing about achievements of anykind or any ongoing projects.  What are they doing with our money and why wont he support the Kyoto Protocal?  Is he forgeting about the forest outside of North America that are being destroyed and not regrown when people are not utilizing tree farms and cutting down any wood in sight until it is gone and habitats are destroyed?  I have no idea where he is coming from.

May biggest problem with Greenpeace is their opposition to golden rice (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_rice) and geneticly modified crops in general.

I am not very interested in Greenpeace's issues with food.  I am much more interested in what their other campaigns have to offer.  Although I have no interest or knowledge in what is going on in the world of genetically modified organism, there seems to be some sort of problem with doing so.

Title: Re: The HOPEFUL thread: Be happy here!
Post by: fuzzy on July 13, 2006, 11:11:33 AM
Some countries don't think they are safe so they wont allow any kind of modified food into the country.  There is also a problem with the genetically modified organism spreading and screwing up the ecosystem.  But you know.  I don't know a lot about the problems and why some people think this is so bad and I really don't care about genetically modified organism.

I believe that this wonderful site has made a mistake. I was listening to Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island music in the midis section to a song entitled Bonus Games. I don't think this song is entitled right. Isn't that song of when you finish a level in the game and your points get tallied up? I think that the bonus game music has more of a carnival sound to it. Also do you think you could update the Paper Mario page? That game has been out for years and I believe that you know what Mario's Pad is not a giant Koopa shell. Thank you!

MEGAߥTE: You are correct. Thanks for catching that!

I just received a used Sidewinder Force Feedback 2 joystick I ordered off eBay (for a fantastic price).  It worked wonderfully except for the hat, which wouldn't register three of its eight directions (up-right, right and down-right).  I took out my trusty screw-driver, opened up the joystick casing, and... I fixed the hat!  I really had no clue what to expect when I opened up the case but I fiddled around and now the hat works!

I know why Greenpeace hate non-organic food now. 

Quote
Organic soils capture and store carbon dioxide at much higher levels than soils from conventional farms. If we grew all of our corn and soybeans organically, we’d remove 580 billion pounds of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere!

Hate?  Is that supposed to be HOPEFUL, or did you mean to post it in tha ANGST thread?  BTW, I buy organic when it's cost effective and of the same nutritional value.  The problem is that there are no well defined federal standards for what organic means. 

Fuzzy, are you parents Greenpeace members?

Wii will be happy on October 2nd. Why? The fourth quarter begins on October 1st. At least one game is released every Monday in the fourth quarter except for the following dates: October 2, November 20 and November 27. November 27 is after Black Friday, so it’s out. November 20 is after the launch of the PS3, so that’s out too. That leaves us with October 2. The Wii will launch on October 2nd. Also, Gamestop once reported that they had information regarding titles that had a release date on October 2nd.

As I said here (http://themushroomkingdom.net/board/index.php?topic=9484.msg431720#msg431720), I'm a centrist, and as stated here (http://themushroomkingdom.net/board/index.php?topic=9323.msg439131#msg439131), I don't like the current electoral system, but I'm still hopeful that I can have my votes count to a greater degree due to my voter registration.  I was registered Republican in Mississippi, and changed to Independent and when I renewed my drivers license the other day I changed to Democrat here in California; reasoning that it's better to affect the strongest party in my location than not have a party and therefor not be able to vote in preliminary elections.  Maybe my line of reasoning here isn't logical.  Even so, since my wife is registered Republican we can now discuss and have at least one vote for both of the major parties during preliminary elections.  Still I'd like to see more parties even though my registration may not seem to show that.  What do you think?

For the sake of staying on-topic, I had a long week and I'm so glad to have a weekend's peace. And I completely destroyed a spider today! You see, you can't just start swatting away when it's on an uneven surface, like a handrail or something similar. You must wait until it is on a broad flat surface, and an easy-to-reach one at that. If you don't have a swatter, a soda can will do.

OH NO!!! XO

I'm happy because we went to this museum-type thing, and in this demonstration of the two-handed longsword in combat, there was some great comedy. Examples include crotch-kicking and the following:

Guy 1: If there's a four-foot piece of steel coming at you...
Both guys: GET OUT OF THE WAY.

Guy 2: It's never a good idea to fight with your shoe untied. *ties his shoe*

My cousin went on a foreign exchage student program whatever to Australia in his junior year of high school. It turned out to be mostly fun and games. He said sometimes when the surfing was really good, even the teachers wouldn't show up for class. Don't get your hopes up, though.

He stayed there for a school year and said another cool thing was that he had our summer, went to Australia for school (their summer, including Christmas :P) and came back at the beginning of our summer.

I hear ya. Summer being over means the summer bowling league ending, which I was not in. My two greatest weirdo-friends in the whole world and I are going to be on a new team for the next season and more to come though, so I'm happy about that. I only have 7 days left of babysitting, which means payment for it is near. The faster time goes, the sooner I'll be opening a box labeled, "Wii," and I'll be playing my GameCube games on it again.
Oh, and we're also going through a cool phase out here. It's been under 100 all week if I'm right. We haven't turned on the AC for a few days. I was actually a little cold when I woke up this morning.

I'm happy, happy, happppy!!!

Okay, I got this idea for a fanfiction in a dream (o_0)! I've been working on this idea for a few days, changing it and trying to get all of the SSBM characters to fit in it. Tell me your thought on it. PM your thoughts. Tell me if you think it would make a great story or if it would completely waste my time because as far as I know, it's an idea that's never been tried. I tried to give it a plot. But I don't know what the plot would all lead to! Could I have some ideas? I'm so excited! I've never been so excited to try out a new story! Tell me the pros and cons of my story and if you think I need to change someting, too.



The SSBM cast in a story based around poverty. All of the SSBM cast are poor teenagers, who have one way or another become poor. They have to work to take care of their aging parents and small siblings. They learn about friendship, love, and hardship. Based in the early 1900's or 1920's.

Mario (17), Luigi (16) and Peach (15) are siblings. Their dad is Doctor Mario (40). Dr. Mario is a drunk and drinks up his money at the local pub while his children are hungry.

Link (16), Young Link (10) and Zelda (15) are siblings and their father is Ganondarf (45) ( (their father is Ganondarf because Ganondarf + father = evil father = a plot for me to set their story against). Ganondarf beats up his sons and he doesn't feed his daughter and makes her clean the house and cook the dinner and makes her sleep in the celler with all the rats and bugs. She gets sick often. Her brothers try to sneak her things down there as often as they can and when their father gets drunk , he is so drunk he doesn't notice Zelda slip into the kitchen.

Roy (16) and Marth (14) are siblings. They are orphans. They used to be princes. Their kingdom was taken over and their parents killed so now they live on the streets. They are not used to working, so it is hard for them. They are used to sleeping in late, eating on time, and getting what they want. Also, Marth is reeeallly immature for his age and is really silly and Roy is constantly losing jobs because he still has that "I'm the Boss" mentality.

Falco (18)(orphaned) and Fox (20) are cousins. They fight a lot, because Falco wants to do what he wants to do and Fox is trying to keep him in line and he tells him what to do, because he is living with him.

Pikachu (10) and Pichu (7) are siblings while their cousins are Jigglypuff (12) and Kirby (13) and their dad is Mewtwo. Jigglypuff and Kirby live with Mewtwo, too. Mewtwo is very strict and makes sure the children that live in his house have no fun. And since Mewtwo favors Kirby, he lets him do whatever he pleases. Kirby is a spoiled brat and whenever Pikachu, Pichu, or Jigglypuff do something he doesn't like, he tells Mewtwo, who beats them.

Captain Falcon is the sheriff of the town and Samus Aran is his wife.

Bowser is the President of the World of Nintendo while Donkey Kong, his best friend, is the Vice President. Bowser has two step-children, Nana and Popo, who were from his late wife's previous marriage.

Mr. Game and Watch is the bodyguard for Nana and Popo when they go to school. He stays with them at all times.

Nana (10) and Popo (10) are twins and were orphans unitl President Bowser (50) was kind-hearted enough to take them in. Popo is very mischiveous as is his sister, Nana. They always manage to get around Mr. G & W. He does his best to keep an eye on them.

Ness (12) is an orphan and a young factory worker who must work to live. He lives with Yoshi (20) in a beat down shack. Yoshi took Ness in when he barely had enough to feed himself. Yoshi cannot work because he has a severed leg that he got one night when some drunkards were messing with him. One of them fired a gun, absent-mindedly and shot Yoshi in the leg. The bullet went to far in and they weren't able to get it out and so it shattered and Yoshi hasn't been able to walk.

Also, I have P.E. 7th period, the last class of the day. That's a good thing; I won't be all sweaty for a class or two following, and I'll just have to go home, where I can just relax.

Yeah, same.  Also, it brings back a lot of memories.  Back when I didn't follow the plotline, and refused to pay attention at some parts, only to direct my eyes alertly back to the television when that giant tiger thing rose out of the sand.  Ah, yes.  Good times. 

So, I'm feeling hopeful because nothing really bad happened today, and I found out that I got into the higher band at school (yes, nerdy perhaps, but still).  The concrete reason I wanted to be in the upper band was not only the music better, but most of my friends got in as well.  This up coming year looks great so far.  :)

Aladdin is probably my all-time favorite animated motion picture. I used to watch it every day until I remembered the script word-for-word and the lyrics to every song. It was also one of the things that inspired me to draw.

Aladdin is by far one of the best Disney movies of all-time! It rocks! (not that I even tried to memorize it) I loved the first song when he's running from the guards.

I'm VERY happy because I got my state test results today and I was one of the 16% who scored Advanced in English-Language Arts and one of the 27% who scored proficient in math in the state of California. I am very proud of myself!

I saw the live-performed one in Disneyland, it was pretty cool and true enough to the movie (no Abu, but somebody dressed up as a carpet =D). The Genie kept making references to today's world- "You're settin' me FREE? Oh, man, I'm TOTALLY adding you to my friends list on MySpace!!" -but none of the other characters paid any mind to it.

I should really see that movie some time.  It's been too long.  XD MySpace.  XD BP's signature.

Well... I haven't come to good ol' TMK for awhile so I guess I should probably say something.  How's everybody doing?  Still hopeful and happy? :)

I just returned from working at camp this summer and I had the best time ever.  Meeting new people, hanging with my cabinmates, reading tons of good books, learning more things about myself and what I need to change, singing loud catchy songs in the chapel and around the campfire, going to a Shawn McDonald concert, watching kids have fun with their counselors and slowly change over the summer, and more than I can say here. What a great summer.

Last Friday I rented LoZ: Four Swords and I'm really having fun with it.  This is the first Zelda game I've played in a long time (weird, huh?).  So far I’ve journeyed to Death Mountain and soon will enter the dark temple of boiling lava and fire-belching statues!  I’m Tingling with anticipation.

Being the bookworm that I am, I’m reading another book right now called “Shine: Make Them Wonder What You’ve Got” and I’m almost finished.  It’s all about “Being the change that you want to see” in others and I love everything in this book and the lessons it teaching me (if you flipped through it you would find underlined sentences on almost every page).  Just yesterday I read something that I really needed to hear about the way I think about other people.  “When we take on the attitude that we’re better than others, we’re holding on to pride.... Sometimes it isn’t judging people’s actions but judging what we think they will do that prevents us from reaching out.”  I never realized it but maybe I do think too high of myself and should rethink the way I look at people.  Sorry if I said more than needed.

And finally, the Nintendo Wii is scheduled to land on our planet in just a few months.  I don’t know what else to say except... Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

Heh, nice to see you here again YR!:) I'm kinda a Bookworm myself, in fact I have a whole shelf filled with Goosebumps books I read whne I was younger. I remember how happy I was when I was able to get a new book and read it as soon as possible.

Books I've read recently include: The Pigman( Despite the sort of weird title, it's an awesome book and I loved the story so much, I got the sequel and read it in a day ), The Pigman's Legacy ( A great sequel to a great book. It's definetly an improvement from the first one, and I was very satisfied with the ending. ) I'm currently reading Across Five Aprils ( It has yet to spark my interest though. -_- )

As for games, I'm really happy I got Sonic Riders and I'm currently at Sky Ride in the Babylon Story. I never thought I'd get that far in the game, and I'm really curious as to what will happen. :)

I recently mailed a letter to VIZ Media...so, I guess I'm hopeful it'll work? O_o

Well, it's not a Play-Yan but it's in English, it deals with music, videos, NES games, GBA games, .txt files, and a whole lot more nerdy stuff I don't even know about!! It's getting good feedback... Everyone should have one of these.I'm still thinking it over whether to get the 512 MB card or invest in the 1 GB one. Suggestions?
I plan on using it with my GBA when I'm on the bus to and from school... batteries will be a factor, but I've gotta protect my DS and leave it here at home. I'm kind of annoyed with how I have to buy a new cdPod all the time because of the crappiness of it. Not anymore!

Speaking of books, I've been annoyed at how I've been slacking off so much this summer.  I have literally had it up to here *indicates neck* with Dickens and his pompous, conservative writings!  Haha, sorry, it's just that I've read a ton of him over the past three months, and you can only take so much before you realize that this guy is so dang full of himself!  I decided to take a break from the whole activity when this struck me, so I guess it slipped my mind. 
This hit me a little while ago, so I went out and bought Lost.  I read most of it in three nights, having only fifteen pages remaining.  Sadly, I'm not fond of this book too much either.  -_-'
I suppose I should wrap it up sooner or later...
Probably later.  :-0
EDIT:  Ironically, it appears that I've misplaced Lost.  ^_^

I'm still thinking it over whether to get the 512 MB card or invest in the 1 GB one. Suggestions?
If you have the money, definitely get the 1 GB. I have a 1 GB mp3 player, and it's not enough for me. I don't know how much music you listen to, or how many videos you want to watch, but if you plan on filling it, invest in the 1 GB. The 2 GB would be even better, if you're the nerd you are :P.

Last night I saw a PBS special about the Blue Man Group (inside the tube).  This was my first time to see anything they did and I didn't know what to expect.  It completely blue me away!  After getting used to the weirdness, I started to like it.  I think my favorite parts were when they played the tubes and also the witty "Guide Book to Rock and Roll."  Bob your head... pump your fist... jump up and down!! :)  I probably shouldn't have watched this right before bed though (my Dad taped it while I went to church) because it gave me a strange dream.

I think I need to find more things in common with you people because... most of the time I don't know what people are even talking about. >_>

TBT: I found your Lost book!  It was underneath my bed somehow.

The 512 MB one will be good enough, I think. It comes with software I can use to encode files (which means I don't have to live offa 2-week trials for that anymore). It said "Anything your computer can play (a/v-wise), this can too. So I could probably sacrifice a few bigger things to make room for an actual movie from a DVD, for long trips and stuff. 512 MB would... probably... not be big enough unless said software could make the files smaller. Well, whatever. 512 MB is good enough for me now. If only it also played SNES ROMs... not possible, theoretically, but come on, it'd shoot to the top of everyone's to-buy lists. Ooh, and if it could store  physical objects... and refrigerate them too...

I went to PAX (http://www.pennyarcadeexpo.com/) today.  I saw the movie The Wizard for the first time.

When you watch a bad eighties movie about video games alone, it's just a bad eighties movie about video games.  When you watch a bad eighties movie about video games in a theater filled with gamers who remember the eighties, it becomes The Best Movie Ever.

I'm going to brag now.

Today was day two of PAX (http://www.pennyarcadeexpo.com/index.php).  The day was indescribably awesome for many, many reasons.  However, what I'm here to brag about is that I entered a Tetris DS tournament, and I won.  First place.  Out of over 140 contestants.  I got a Radeon X1900XT, worth over $300, as a prize.  I'm going to sell it.  I just wish they had given me a cash prize directly, because then I could call myself a professional gamer.  I'd love that title.

I'm also entered in the Mario Kart DS tournament, which will be held tomorrow.  I've got to go practice.

Well, though my sister went back to school, and I had to work so I couldn't drop her off with my parents,  it worked out alright, because when I got out at 9, I got home to find out that my mom got me a couple of souveneirs.  She got me some Mike and Ikes, a huge box of them, and a Venus Flytrap she picked up at the Wal-mart by my sisters school.  It's really cool, and it's in pretty good shape, considering it was likely sitting in the impulse area for weeks.  It was funny because I brought it outside when it was raining to give it a little water, and when I was going to bring it back in, my cat followed me.  It stuck its nose right into the "mouth", which snapped shut on it, and it jumped straight up and ran back inside.

There were w00ts all over the place today. I got geography fixed (I'm now in honors, like I should be [not to mention 5th period is the most important class to have friends in--you know the lunch plans. That came with the switch]). I have an A in geometry so far (where I'm now the math nerd people ask what "collinear" means), and there's a class set of geometry books as of today. There's also a class set of biology books, and from what I can see I'll now only need my geography book once a week or less. So on fridays, when I won't need my Spanish book, I might be walking around with no books at all. Oh, and my CD player miraculously still works. It only needs to last 2-3 more weeks before I can throw its remains away/give it to G-Dawg. =D

I have eaten of the massive cactus.

It's rich juices flowed into my mouth, and I loved the succulent taste of it's hard exterior.

I love eating cactus. It is my new favorite hobby. I will eat as many cacti as I can, and thrust it in my mouth.

*ahem*

So, I went to this mexican resturant tonight, and they offered some spanish-named dish which came with cactus on the side. Edible cactus. So I was like "TRTRTRTR MASSSIVE CACTUSSS!@!!!" and decided to eat some.

It tasted sorta like asparegus(sp?) and was kinda weird, but juicy.

Just for the record, I'm a big fan of Bionicle. Today, in the lego section of Zellers (A canadian store, I beleive), I saw Hewkii Inika on the sleves. He was the only inika (a new brand of toa) there, so I bought one. He's awesome. 13 points of articulation, light up axe, glow in the eyes and plenty of new peices. A truly great set!

Ok, to fit with the title of the topic: I HOPE that in high school I meet another hardcore Mario fan to play my DS with. My friends are, as I said, good ones, but only 2 have GameCubes and one has a DS but took it to school only once last year. I played SM64DS with him but he was no challenge. Since my Wifi doesn't seem to work, having a friend to play multiplayer with in the same general vicinity would be the next best thing.
I'm happy to say that in English, I now have two Mario fans near me and both have DSs.

Relating to my last post here, the guy behind me has a mom who teaches, so we have a place to be Nintendo weirdos without everyone watching. I pwned at MKDS.

Relating to my ANGST thread post (http://themushroomkingdom.net/board/index.php?topic=9323.msg444989#msg444989), it wasn't as bad as I thought. It made my arms hurt a little, but my friends and I decided it'd be stupid to walk all the way to 10th for food (I was given $10 this morning), so we went to a nice little cafè that's part of some Protestant chruch my friend goes to. I wish he didn't go to another school... I'll see him on saturday when bowling starts. Anyhow, I got a grilled cheese sandwich (which incidentally was a lot better than whatever crap I'd've bought had we gone to the little Mexican restaurant on 10th) so that wasn't a bad deal either. The dude who sits behind me brought his GameCube, so I promised I'd be a good Nintendo guy and bring all my GameCube games, memory cards and my WaveBird tomorrow. I'm tingling, I'll be playing SSBM again! I'll need 'em back when I get a Wii, but I'll carry some game no one else has around with me for whatever days I decide to spend lunch there.

I'm learning about ways to get the best results out of the conversion process. The quieter the song is converted, the less distorted it sounds, but silence is nothing a turn of the volume knob doesn't fix. The video quality is a mile better than I expected. I expected pretty much nothing, so the animated GIF-like visuals are above average. So now I don't have to walk around holding a CD player with Sharpie all over it.
Also, I wrote a killer essay for English. I should probably type it, as my handwriting can kill one's eyes.

Isn't GameStop accepting Wii and PS3 pre-orders next week?

There was a test run in Hawaii.  My local Game Stop manager said that they might have a pre-order after the data from Hawaii is analyzed.  After what happened with Amazon, I'm not so sure.

Edit:  Update on Wii pre-orders from Amazon.com (http://www.amazon.com/gp/discussionboard/discussion.html/ref=cm_cd_td_t/104-8788261-4727949?ie=UTF8&cdForum=&cdPage=1&cdItems=3&asin=B0009VXBAQ&store=videogames&cdThread=Tx3TV0UCIFW8EE8)

Hey, congrats!
I've been doing great in school lately, which is conveinient, given the Wii will be out in a matter of months. I am also HAPPY because I have over 200 dollars saved up to get the Wii, so by then, I should have enough.

You know when you get a scab, how if you scrape it off too fast you have this red underskin thing?  Well.....

I had one of those on my chest since I was about thirteen, nearly four years.  I won't go into graphic detail, because you'll say that scabs are gross, or lack thereof, and I think I would know that by now.  Anyway, I've avoided swimming, contact sports, and many topless activities like changing in the locker room or going to freshmen PE without a sweatshirt wrapped around my neck(before I got a sweatshirt I would paper clip my shirt collar tighter).  Well, today I removed another bandaid, carefully, and...

It's healed.  There's skin there.

Well, today, I got my student ID cards. Now I won't have to worry about forgetting money for lunch. Hi Deezer.
Note that all of the stuff that's in covered with black was only blackened because they gave away too much personal information.

Duuuuude! You should have blacked out the bar code! That's what I'd do if I showed you guys a picture of my school ID. That way, people can't scan a copy of that picture and steal your social security number and fraud you for a bunch of crap. Unless... your school ID works differently from mine and doesn't use your SS number.. Then you've got nothing to worry about.

It's too late now, 'cause I'm a Junior and sadly I don't have enough skill. But my Church allows our group to play football every Sunday, and I found out today that God has blessed me with good hands. (8 catches, 3 touchdowns) Thank God for this day.

You can use trials for more than 15/20/30/whatever days. You just need to edit the Registery Editor (only for PC's. Sorry Mac users!). Let's go break some laws:

1. Press the Windows key and "r" at the same time.
2. Type in "regedit" (without the quotes).
3. Go to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software" (without the quotes).
4. Find the trial software you downloaded. Make sure it has expired.
5. Right-click it, then go to "delete".
6. Download the trial software again. If you did everything correctly, you should be able to use it for the next 15/20/30/whatever days.
7. After it has expired, go back to step 1.

I forgot to mention this, but yesterday, my dad and I were shopping for some of my birthday presents (It's my birthday on October 18th). Two of the items I wanted were a digital camera and Printer/Scanner/copier 3-in-1. We found a wonderful deal featuring a 5 mega-pixel digital camera (compared to the Sony camera, which was 6 mega-pixel. Not much of a difference), and a printer/scanner/copier that also featured a port for our SD cards. The best part is that it was only slightly over $200! I asked the salesman what the Dots per square inch was, and he said about 48 hundred Dps. We put it on lay-away, and my dad and I will pick it up next Sunday.

Also, we're going to buy an SD card (I'm thinking about one containing 50 pictures) and a rechargeable battery.

So a couple days ago I took a stock of my personality and figured out that there's a few very fundamental things wrong with me that is preventing me from having any success with social situations (and, at some point, girls).

As of then, though, I've decided to, slowly but surely, improve myself in order to have better success making friends. It'll be a while, but I think I'll turn out radically better. I start by actually approaching people I don't know all that well and just saying "hi" and the like. Very basic, but still better than avoiding these situations outright, which is what I'd done in the past.

The HOPEFUL part of this post is twofold:

1) That I've managed to acknowledge there's a lot of things that I need to fix and am finally taking the initiative to fix them, and
2) That there will come a point where I'll be at the point I want to be with interacting with people. It might be a few months time, but I am generally very good at improving things that I work at.

There you go. If I start acting a bit differently in posts, it's probably a result of this.

I'm like "It's THREE letters. W-I-I. Wii. Don't make a stupid joke about it either." And you know... he didn't! Muhahahaaaaah! I dunno if I'll be able to get my hands on Twilight Princess though... Super Paper Mario, likely. Oh, right... I can camp out outside the building since it's a Sunday. If not, there's Target right across the parking lot. I'll count the days down... November 19th. November 19th. November 19th.
Downs: I won't be there to confirm or deny any offers. I told him, "If anything's free, take it." Eh... I'll leave a note saying to also preorder LoZ:TP and SPM if possible.

...
[09:47] <unlucky13> they said they only had 11, but i know that was a lie.  they held 4 for employees.  too bad i'm no longer an employee.

BTW, I think it's possible that every store got 15 and the other numbers are due to employee reservation.  I can't confirm this though.

Well, I got to the store at about 6:15 am, and ended up 27th in line out of a total 32 units.  I heard somewhere that they were only allowed to keep two for employees, but I don't know if that number has grounds in reality.

My friend went to a Gamestop in a mall at about 8 am, and ended up 15th of a total 50 availible.  So I don't think every store could've gotten the same number.

I went at 1:20PM and was officially the first person in Bozeman, MT to get denied. She said that the person on the phone she was talking to when I came in was the last person. I thought they weren't supposed to do phone reservations! :(

It's okay. I work at a gaming-related store and have alternate means of pwiiordering. I also now don't have to support GameStop, even though I don't think stores get jack for selling Wiis anyway.

Furthermore, I don't expect it to be too impossible to get one from a department store on launch day.

Sorry to break the Wii posting trend, here, but I am so excited about my grades that I decided to post them..

My final grades at the end of my second term (or first full term) at Westwood College Online are..

I have an 84.44% in my Computer Apps class (which wasn't hard at all..)

I have a 91.27% in my Intro to Drawing and Perspective (which is great, considering I kind of sucked at drawing before taking the class..)

and I have an 89.89% in my Game Development class (darn it! It was almost an A.)

So, not exactly flying colors,  but not half bad if I do say so myself. They were all far better than I expected them to be. :)

Continued from the ANGST thread:

I beleive that since this topic has only gone only 6 days with out an post, this doesn't count as a reveival.

Here's the story: I was typing out this long PM on another site. It was rather humorous, too. I was nearly completed, when suddenly my wrist accidentally pressed a button on my keyboard, and the computer deletes my message!!!! 0:< No message box asking "Are you sure you'd like to delete this message ?" I just refreshs the page, with no PM to speak of. I know the computer technically refreshed the page, and it didn't know it would delete my message, but still.

Well, I'm starting to get over the incident. But I just wish It didn't happen.

Well scartch that. I re-wrote the entire thing and posted it in a topic for everyone to see. No one really commented on it, but I'm just glad with myself because I managed to finish the story. Yay :D!

In my backyard we removed a branch from a tree. The branch fell a few degrees in the wrong direction and destroyed a part of my pool. The crash was awesome: pictures (http://www.kontek.net/TEM/Adventures/PoolDestroyed10-14-06/).

Last night I was in bed, dead tired, and I just happen to open my eyes to see the clock read 3:14.  This lead me to think of 3.14, pi, then pie, then apple pie, then apple pie with a slice of cheese melted over it.  After that, I thought of the Chocolate and Cheese law, which made me think of my father, and then my uncle.  For some reason I got really happy then and started smiling while I was laying in my bed.  I don't really know why, but just going through that bunch of thoughts.

I need a link for that sprite. Please?

The Lord is good! I have some wonderful news. After that horrible break-in (see ANGST thread), our insurance company gave us a phone call, saying they are going to cover the cost of everything stolen, including my dad's non-working camera! Now, let's run down the List of Prices:
- 1 Gamecube|Limited-edition Platinum-- $100
- 2 Platinum controllers-- $40 ($20 ea.)
- 1 256 Memory card-- $20
- 1 Sandisk Sansa m240 series 1 GB mp3 player-- $60
- 1 Philips foldable Noise-canceling headphones-- $80
- 1 Limited Edition NES Edition GBASP-- $100 (probably, being it is very hard to find one nowadays)
- 1 Pokemon Red version-- $? ($20-40?)
T O T A L: $400
Minus the deductible after you add my dad's camera & equipment ($1,000+), along with the cost of our alarm, I will have enough to buy Wii when it comes out, plus some! Even without my Yu-Gi-Oh! cards being sold, I will still get Wii on opening day! And, I figure that the Lord was watching over my family. Even though I have lost most of what means the most to me (material wise), I'll still be able to replace most of it (minus the memory card :'( ), and I am going to get what I've wanted most. This is absolutely awesome.

The Lord IS good. That's great news! This makes me remember the night my mom bought us a gamecube, unexpectedly. It was on sale, $130 for the limited edition platinum edition, 2 controllers, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, and an SSBM skin. That was cool. In addition, she paid more for insurance.

I remember the time my mom, for some reason, kept buying us N64 games. Scary. One day, she came home with an N64, 4 controllers (2 are lost now XD), Super Mario 64, and Paper Mario. I had a blast.

I'm still ticked off, though, that I bought Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, for $35 bucks, and a few weeks later it was $19.99 at Target. But that's angst, and I'm in the wrong thread.

Ah, it's a good day.  I feel I did really well on the PSAT, having only 3 or 4 which kinda stumped me.  And since it was a test day, I got out of school at 11:00, which is always nice.  Then, when I got home, I watched the rest of The Price is Right, and I'm finishing the morning with pizza I forgot I had.  It's Pepperoni Lovers with Stuffed Crust from Pizza Hut, and it tastes great.

I don't know whether or not to be happy or mad. The insurance company called us again, and they said they would replace EVERYTHING exactly (the older stuff stolen, such as my dad's camera, will be replaced with its equivalent to today's standards). So, now I'm back down to only $50 for Wii. However, I plan on selling the Gamecube, a controller, and possibly a game (Animal Crossing) on eBay, so I'll still get some money. And, unfortunately, my dad will have to sell the camera he gets on eBay to cover the cost of the alarm for our house. So, I'm at a weird situation filled with both HOPE and ANGST. *Mr.Melee releases a big sigh. Guess I'll have to go back to worrying about how much I'll get for my Yu-Gi-Oh! cards.

*Napoleon Dynamite trademark "Yesss"*
My packages arrived yesterday. Well, half of them. I did receive my mp3 player and headphones (just like they said: exact same item), but the majority of the packages were lenses and the replacement up-to-date camera for my dad. I guess film cameras are so out of date they gave him a 6.0 MP, 12.0x Optical zoom Sony Cybershot Digital Still Camera. He's thinking about keeping it, but if I were him, I would sell it to pay for our alarm, keep whatever's leftover, if anything, and save it up for the Nikon 6.1 MP SLR Digital Camera he wants (which is much better).

I also have some ANGST, and rather than make a separate post, I will post it here. I came home today to see a note attached to the door from the UPS company. They had tried to deliver another package, but no one was home to sign for it. Urg, why is my bus ride home so long? Well, hopefully they will come tomorrow (the sheet said the next attempt to deliver the packages would be tomorrow) when I'm home. Just think, soon I'll be able to sell this stuff on eBay and make a profit towards Wii.

I cried tears of joy to myself this morning while waiting for the bus, listening to this (http://www1.eboard.com/boards/19/36/28/hgoldstein/att-1383553/AbramsPur.m4a) while thinking to myself "I'm actually going to perform this."

May seem fairly stupid to others, but I have been in a school band known for having idiots, slackers, and people who just didn't care about music for two years, and I finally got out of the band which was holding me back. And I finally get to perform the more difficult stuff.

My mood quickly changed from happy to annoyed after the song had ended and the bus had become 10 minutes late.

Hooray, hurray, hoorah! Most of my remaining stuff came yesterday. I got a new platinum GCN, two new black controllers, a new black (251) memory card, and a new Graphite GBASP. All of these brand-new items will be sold on eBay for Wii money. Included with the GCN & accesories, I will also throw in Animal Crossin (used), which will further boost the profit made (I will also pick out a game to go with the GBASP).

I am still waiting on a new Pokemon Red Version and a wireless adapter for my Wavebird controller. Oh well, it doesn't really matter.

However, I am a bit annoyed that I did not get two platinum controllers and an NES Edition GBASP. Oh well, I'm selling them on eBay, and people buy Gamecube's on eBay for high prices.

Good news all around!  This has been a pretty good weekend for me.

First, my friend brought my sister home a week early.  He was going to get her from college next weekend for his birthday.  But, at about 12:30 on Friday night, he shows up to the door saying he has presents.  It was great because none of the family knew she was home, so she wasn't obligated to go anywhere.  Good.

Then, on Saturday, my report card came in the mail.  Surprisingly, I failed none of my classes.  I only passed my history class with a 66, which isn't phenomenal, but I was expecting 53 (which was what it said on the board of everyones grades in his class.)  My father didn't even try to pull off the responsible, come-down-on-me-hard father.  He just read off the bad comments (doesn't work up to potential, owes class/homework, etc.), and handed to my mother, who I told that it would be bad, so she wasn't shocked, and was still happy with the other grades.  Not bad.

And, on Friday, I was chosen for a technology sciences internship.  Well, internship is the term they used, but I don't think that's quite right.  Oh well, it's still cool.  Basically, once a week after school, I go to some building and learn for ten weeks how to do stuff like create web-pages and games, theres a part for robotics, and part of it is computer networks repair.  Plus, for a meeting to figure out what day would be best, I get out of my Spanish class on Thursday.  Good Good.

I must confess, I didn't do half the homework assignments in geometry last grading period. Not even half--only six out of thirteen. But by some strange tampering with time and space I have 106% in the class. No kidding.

You honestly find this odd? Wow, you're still quite new to high school. I did next to no homework assignments at all in my Freshman, Sophomore and Junior years and still got As and Bs on my report cards.

This is because homework is usually only around 10-15% of your entire grade for that class, varying by how much your teachers actually care about homework (at least, that's how it goes with my school). Welcome to high school.

Math classes are the only class where doing homework is usually unimportant. Tests make up most of your grade, followed by participation.

Of course, doing the homework gives you the right to gloat and call everyone else failures, so that's good enough reason for me.
Title: Re: The HOPEFUL thread: Be happy here!
Post by: CoconutMikeNIke on November 08, 2006, 08:37:18 PM
Well, in my math class the tests/quiz section is 60% of the grade, but then in my Anthropology, it's 10% for the test, and 70 for classwork, with the last 20 being homework.  Those are the only classes that give any indication how the grades are balanced.

In the Hopeful area, I won a bunch of PS1 and SNES games from eBay, which should be here sometime next week, to be enjoyed for a few days before I set aside my time for the Wii.  That, and I'm getting my new RAZR on Friday.

I like WarioWare Touched! a lot more the M&L:PiT.  The first Mario & Luigi was awesome, but something about the second one was boring to me.  WarioWare Touched! was so good for me that I made an interactive high score DS page for it.

Me: Do you have WarioWare: Touched for the Nintendo DS?
Clerk: [checks computer] Ah, nope, not a single copy...

Clerk: Maybe. Only if we get extras, which we might not.
Me: [knowing that I'll never get one from here] Well, okay...

To Target
Me: They don't have WarioWare here, either. Crap. Excuse me, um... On the 19th, er... I mean, have preorders for Wii been taken, or will they be, or what?
Target Man: Nope, they'll all be up for grabs. First come, first serve.
Me: Really? Great! So, when are you opening on the 19th.
Target Man: Eight AM. But no hurry, really, if you show up early you'll be able to get one.
Me: Oh, cool.
Target Man Number Two: I don't know, the vendor I talked to said that throughout America on release day, there'll only be one million Wiis to go around.
Target Man: Well, yeah, but...
Target Man Number Two: And that's for everyone, not just Target. Wal*Mart, GameStop, EB Games, Software Etc.
Me: [Knowing darn well the latter two will get, like, five Wiis each] Well, I just want to know if I'm one of the earliest birds, could I get one here?
Target Man: Yeah. I mean, there'll be campers, but there should be enough Wii for everyone.
Me: All right, see you next week.

You might want to check http://www.ps3seeker.com/wii/ to see how many Wii systems your Target and WalMart are getting.  Mine's getting 51 and 53.  My Software Etc. and GameCrazy are only getting 10 each.  GameStop is probably getting more, but I'm not buying stuff there (see my angst post).  I didn't check Circuit City.

Well, Best Buy seems like the best place to go for a Wii. They're getting the most Wii's on launch day.

96 at my Best Buy

I've got 2 Target's by me. 69 at one of them and 60 at the other.

These posts give me a lot of hope for my Wii future. Right now, I'm selling my GCN, mp3 player, and all the rest of the stuff on eBay. Currently, the combined total is 0.50 cents short of $100, but I still have more than a day to go on each. Quite possibly, I'll be able to get Wii on opening day. If my local Target and Best Buy are anything like everyone elses, I should be able to get Wii on opening day. It all depends on the money, though. For now, I'm being very hopeful.

[18:20] <Luigison> If you have YouTube please rate it too.
[18:21] <Luigison> I've got over twice as many needed for a free game, but only about half what's needed for a Wii.
[18:22] <Luigison> I wonder if I get 16000 if he'd count it as 6000 for a game and 10,000 for Wiimote and Nunchuck.
[18:22] <Luigison> Currently at 15,163 as of last YouTube update.  They update slow, so it could be higher now.

I was thinking. Maybe I'll sell these things on ebay. I'll list it like this:

gamecube platinum limited edition

all cords included (AV cables, AC Adapter)

luigi's mansion (no box but manual included and no scratches on disk)

the sims (box and manual are included and the disk is scratch-free)

ssbm gamecube skin

no scratches

like-new condition

from a smoke-free home

bought brand-new in october 2005

instruction manual

purple game boy advance w/ jackie chan adventures, car charger, & rechargable battery pack w/adapter

I wish I could sell the controllers. But I only have two platinum controllers that are like new. And they're my only controllers.

How much would this suff go for? I'm fond of my little cube.
Title: Re: The HOPEFUL thread: Be happy here!
Post by: CrzyFlmngMnkyHead on November 14, 2006, 10:06:45 PM
$100 - GameCube
$25 - Luigi's Mansion
$20 - Sims
$3 - SSBM skin
$1 - Instruction Manual
$70 - GameBoy Advance
$20 - Jackie Chan Adventures
$15 - Car Charger
$20 - Rechargable Bettery Pack w/Adapter
I'd say that's enough to buy a Wii.*

Thanks to Thanksgiving (holiday humor, ha ha ha), there's no bowling this week or next week. That's for the ANGST thread, though. I'm killing two turkeys with one death beam, then... I will say it like I did last year, I hate turkey. I'll eat the stuffing, meaty or vegan, I'll eat the rolls, the bread, the potatoes and gravy... but no turkey please. So here's hoping there'll be heaps of stuffing on the table this year.

I'm hoping those nice people continued to be nice, and are still holding my place for me. Of course, I'll go in there and check when I go on my breaks and lunches, just to make sure my chair is still there.

Here's hoping! :D

I got a Wii! After many hours of careful planning (read: asking people to watch my spot in line while I worked) and some negotations (read: asking dad to stay in my spot to get a ticket for me, only to find out tickets are being handed out after I get off of work, so dad can go home..), the Wii was mine.

The only problem I have with it is that I don't have an Internet connection of any kind, so I can't use that 2000 point Wii card that I bought.

Aside: I got Zelda, and am stuck.. The cat wants fish..

I also have a question, which is slightly off of the hopeful topic: If I had one of those Dongle things that create a signal for the DS to use Wifi with, would it work with the Wii too??

Anyway, you can also get an adapter to just hook a normal internet cable into the Wii. Then you wouldn't have to have your computer with the dongle on to have Wifi. Or just get a normal wireless router. Not too expensive.

P.S. I wish I had Zelda. Oh well, F-Zero is super fun.

I was debating about whether putting this in this thread or the Angst thread, but it fits better here.  I have a 99% A+ in German!  Yeah!  Go me!  The option of putting it in the angst thread was not because it isn't a perfect 100.  Because I'm one of those kids that goes, "homewhat?" (Translation: I don't do all my homework and my grades usually suffer)

No, the reason this is almost angsty is because this is my best class, and it's German.  I mean, who wants to excel in German?  I it were Math or something I could go, "Yes, I'm intelligent, I can go solve equations and maybe do one of the many math-related careers out there!"  Or if it were English, I could go, "Yes, I'm a master at analysis, I can go understand poetry or write something coherent and intelligent!"  But when it's German, it's like, "Yes, I can speak German well at this level, I can go and speak almost like a normal German person!"  It just doesn't sound as well as the others.  Oh well, an A+ is still an A+!  And I have an A in Drama.  Which reminds me, I have to go write all the tech for my Children's Theater show.  I'm the only drama 3 director for Aladdin!  Gah!  And I'm kind of looking forward to it, so it's not angst as much as nervous excitement.

Starfox 64 is a good game, whether you're good at it or not.  I used to just watch my brothers play it, and by the time I started playing it I was so bad, but it just takes a while.  I love the Mission Accomplished song.

I've only had cable for a couple of days, but I haven't received any sort of slowdowns. In fact, in some cases, my cable connection is actually better than my DSL. When I watched IGN videos on my DSL, they often lagged on high-res. I have yet to experience this problem on cable.

Still, congrats, Mr.Melee!

I remember the first time I got cable internet. From comcast. We got it and then for some unknown reason we didn't have it. And then we got dial-up. Annoyed the mess out of me. I then became used to DSL at my sisters home. Soon after that, we got high-speed cable and to this day, I despise DSL and I HATE DIAL-UP (as everyone else does). No angst, just telling a little story :D

EDIT I don't despise DSL. It's better than dial-up. It has it's good points, as Chup pointed out.

You can find Wii demos in 15 of America's Westfield shopping malls. You can see (http://wii.nintendo.com/mallexperience.jsp) if yours has Wii (luckily, one near me does:).

I'm not sure, but there is a truck coming to Circuit City today (it's actually already here), and it might have Wii on it, so I'm heading over there in an hour to check it out. Wish my luck and HOPEFULness.

I was like, "...me!"

So I'm expecting some random junk but instead he gives me Age of Empires III, Galactic Civilizations II: Dread Lords, Rise of Nations Gold Edition, SimCity 3000, City Life, CivCity Rome, and Sid Meier's Railroads!.

Well, the Circuit City trip was a bust, as Wii had not come. But, I have restored hope, as I got to play Wii at the mall I mentioned. I was able to play, in all, Wii Sports: Tennis, a "newer" version of Duck Hunt, "Wii Play: Table Tennis," and "Wii Play: Billiards." I have to say, Wii has proved itself to be a great multiplayer system, and the controls work greatly (except when the batteries are running low, which the console conveniently tells you when). I've also learned that that particular mall receives a Wii shipment about once a week. So, if I play my cards right, I could have Wii (technically) next week!

My friend offered me some advice on how to raaise money for my Wii cause.  I currently own an SNES, N64, and GC.  I'm thinking of selling the latter two, or just the Gamecube, with about 12 games each.  I'm still thinking about it, though.

One of my classmates camped outside a store yesterday to get her chance at getting a Wii due to the second shipment coming in. She failed.

Well, I have Wii HOPES that Circuit City will receive a Wii shipment tomorrow morning when they open. When I talked to the woman, she sounded very confident that they were getting a shipment Saturday, as she answered immediately. I expect a line, but it's better if there won't be one. Even if it's 18F outside tomorrow morning, I'll still wait (as Gortex can do much in cold weather). I expect to get there at around nine o'clock, maybe with a McDonald's French Vanilla Cappucino in hand. Wish me luck with my Wii journey. The search is nearing its end!

I went to EB games today to see if they had a Wii Kiosk open. Anf y'know what? They did. It was for Excite Truck. I couldn't get into it, because I didn't know how to work the controls (I couldn't even work the dang menu!). Sadly, when I was taught the controls, it was time to go. That sucked :(. But it was still pretty fun feeling the Wii-mote. It was meaty and glossy, just like I imagined it would be. The rumble was pretty cool. I really liked. I can't wait until I get my own this Christmas!

... Of course, that is, if we can even FIND one. These systems are selling like hotcakes. We're looking all over for them >__>.

Welcome to the third (I don't know) installment of "Mr.Melee Looks for Wii"!

Well, seems that Dec. 17th is THE time to get the elusive Wii. Every store is getting a shipment this day (most probably already have some in storage, only holding them back for one big day). You name it: Best Buy, Tart, Toys R Us, everywhere (hypothetical speaking). So, I'm off this Sunday to search for Wii before church. Wish me luck.

Guess what? I found this old R/C car in my closet and I've been playing with it for hours now. It's amazing how something so simple can be so fun. Of course, one of the wheels is stuck, but it's still nice to relive my childhood. Well, actually, I'm technically reliving my sister's childhood, because it's hers...which is weird, like that movie with Lindsay Lohan and whatsername.

Anyway, I also found my old N64. I'm thinking of giving it to my cousin, because he's too young to understand the complexity of a newer system. Seriously, he nearly murdered my PSP.

The only thing is, I need a ride, and everyone I know of that could give me a ride will probably be working. But, I have HOPE that I will get this ride and I will get Wii. I'll actually be able to use those Wii-related Christmas presents over the break.

I play one of the many generic percussion instruments. It depends on which song I'm playing.
Anyways, I'm back from the Midwest Clinic. It was somewhat fun; and I got to meet a bunch of famous composers/conductors. Bruce Pearson conducted the band insted of my normal director, that was kind of interesting. The next place I'm going to play is in Disney Land in Florida, next year in March 2008.
Oh, and in April, I'll (hopefully) be one of the 40 people in my school that gets to go to Springfield, IL as a special History field-trip. But, I'm not sure if I'll be able to go, because with hotel fees, bus services, meals, and other stuff, it'll be about $230. Oh well.

I don't know about TEM's hair, I like my hair a lot. I probably pay more attention to my hair than the other parts of my body in the shower. :P

Anyway, there were three Winter Concerts held by the school this month, and I participated in all three. The last one was just earlier tonight (or yesterday, to be technical, midnight has passed where I live by now).  I'd have to say tonight was the best concert. Once it end, the Wind Ensemble teacher from last year (who retired) came back to tell us how great we sounded. The conductor also was in awe as he was conducting our final piece, he had a huge grin on his face after the piece ended, and when the curtain closed, he shouted:

"WOW! You guys were a completely different Wind Ensemble just now!"

And that just encouraged us to shout things like "YEAH!" and "GO US!" and, in my case "YAAA! Lalalalalalala ^_^".

Well, today I'm going to the dentist. I just need to get one of my teeth has to get pulled out because it's crowding one my wisdom teeth. Why am I hapy about this?

1) The pain in my teeth will finally go away (hopefully).
2) I'll get to keep my tooth once they pull it out. Won't that be cool?

I've already been given a pill at home that--supposably-- helps me to relax. Not feeling anything now, but it'll start kicking in eventually.

Well, I'm back! Yeah, that was quick. My mouth is still very frozen (numb), so I talk rather funny. On the plus side, I get to keep my tooth. Am I allowed to upload a photo of my tooth to photobucket so I can show you guys, or is that against Photobucket's  rules?

They actually removed one of my molers. That moler was removed mostly because it had a big hole on it, but to also make room for my forthcoming wisdom teeth. Would PhotoBucket allow me to upload a picture of the tooth so I can show you guys, or is it against their policies?

Actually, they did the same thing for my dad. I thought it was weird, although I think he may have had braces at the time, so his teeth were crammed anyway. If that's the case, then I could understand that.

Hopefully, I'll be unbanned from the 72dpiarmy forums. A moderator is posting a poll to determine how many people want me back. There should be more "yes"es insted of "no"s, since before I was banned, I used to be one of the best SMW map-makers on the forum. Plus, the moderator is a friend of mine, so that will make my chances of getting unbanned even higher.

Welcome back to "Mr.Melee tries to get Wii for the __ Time!". This week, I have heard that Best Buy is expecting a shipment on New Year's Eve of 10+. Wal*Mart and Target are also getting shipments, but are of no determined date (27-31) and amount of consoles. So, with transportation basically guaranteed, I'll be (most likely) heading off to Best Buy for one more shot at Wii before the new year.

Fanfics that ruin certain characters, or make glaring errors in that franchise's continuity, need to go. I also don't care for romance-fics, humor-fics, and song-fics, only if they don't fit with whatever franchise the fic is based on.

Let's not get too out of hand about fan fiction. I'm sure there are people out there that enjoy the various Star Wars books available. The problem is not the existence of fan fiction, but poorly written fan fiction.

Fan fiction is usually okay when licensed and written by an established author.

The interior of the cantina looked as black as night to Scrooge McDuck, his eyes still burning from the bright twin suns of the Tatooine day, Tatoo I & Tatoo II. McDuck knew the patrons liked it that way. It gave them a chance to eye newcomers before the newcomers could recognize a face. And there were a lot of faces in there that didn't want to be recognized. And, as McDuck kept fighting to make himself forget, a lot of brains two inches behind (or two feet below, depending on the species) those faces that wouldn't give a second thought to blasting off his face, if he made the wrong move.

"Why do I drag myself along on these fool adventures?" Scrooge pondered. And this was a prescient point to ponder, indeed, for Mr. McDuck had just about everything there is to have. He had friends and family. He had property rights to half the buildings in Duckburg. He had one multiplujillion, nine obsquatumatillion, six hundred twenty-three dollars and sixty-two cents. But there was one thing that Scrooge McDuck did not have:

The ship that made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs.

When a person you know offers a GBA for two dollars, you don't refuse. Not only that but he's promised a GBC for $5 tomorrow... which I'll buy as I, too, have a mild case of collectoritis.

I already have some more HOPEFUL news! My dad and I are currently participating in the Barrett-Jackson Fantasy Bid Game (http://www.speedtv.com/fantasybid/index.php)! What you do is enter a "fantasy bid" on a car chosen by the Barrett-Jackson company. You are not actually bidding on the car, but rather guessing the price it will sell for. The closer you are without going over, the more points you get. And, the more points you get, the better a chance you have of winning a daily prize and/or the grand prize, which happens to be a 50" Samsung plasma TV! I'm very HOPEFUL that my dad and I will win something from this game. Wish me luck again, please!

By disk drive, people usually mean a drive dealing with floppy disks. CD drive (or sometimes disc drive) or DVD drive or whatever is for optical discs. The magnetic=disk and optical=disc spelling is not always used, but most people agree that is the way to spell them.

If they release theirs earlier, then yes. But, church starts at 9 am, and Best Buy supposedly opens at 10 am. Also, the 150+ units prediction is just a myth. I will still try to get to Target early enough (I called and they said they would hand tickets out at 7 am) to finally get Wii.

Most fantastic Birthday I have ever had.  Well, okay, so my birthday isn't until Thursday, but my family celebrated last night, since my sister is leaving tonight and wanted to be here for it.  Anyway...

The start of the day was normal.  Then we (My parents, my aunt and uncle, my sister, and her boyfriend) left to go to the restaurant we always go to.  Got there, and even though we called ahead at about 6, at 7 we still had a 30 min wait.  Alright, we knew that would happen, it's a busy place all the time.  Standing with my sister and her boyfriend in the bar area, and I realize that my teacher is coming towards me.  It's alright, since he's pretty cool and I can usually talk to him for a little while.  Still odd to try and force a conversation with people I barely know though.  Speed this up a bit, we finally sit after 40 minutes, order some appetizers, try calamari for the first time (not bad, just kinda chewy), order the 1 1/2 pound steak, have a good time.  Other than being very proud of myself for eating the whole fatty, bloody thing (with a bit of effort for the last few bits), there really wasn't much else of excitement at the restaurant.  We all get back to the house, and my mother and sister run upstairs saying, nay, yelling "DON'T COME UP HERE MIKE!  DON'T COME UP!  LIVING ROOM, NOW!"  With my coat still on because I didn't even get to put it away, my mother and sister try and fit a big bag on the table.  After some moving of mail, and a camera knocked down, they get it.

I reach in, pull out a blue-wrapped square, Madden 07 for the Wii.  Very cool, I've been wanting to buy this for a while, but my mother said that I couldn't buy any new games until after my birthday.  My sisters boyfriend, who I'm pretty good friends with, has been itching to play it, is almost in tears when my mother reminds him he has to play Monopoly with everyone.  Reach in, pull out a heavy jacket.  Good, since the thin ones don't work well in the bitter cold.  Reach to the very bottom of the bag, pull out the most incredible movie ever, The Karate Kid!  Oh, the love for this movie is hard to say in any language I know.  Great gifts.  My sister then says she forgot to wrap it, and hands me a yellow duck pen.  Sweetness, I love the little ducky pen.  I'm very happy with everything when my mother pulls another box out of her room.  Big, heavy, 'fragile' according to the side.  I rip off the Christmas paper turned around, making it white, pull open the box, and see... a bag.  I pull it out, reach back in.  I pull out a almost triangular box (it's called a trapezoid, right?  Never mind.)  Excitement, anticipation, really really full feeling...

I FINALLY GOT A BANJO!  Over a year of drooling over the banjo in the window of the instrument store.  I was so excited, when I went to hug my mother, got tangled in the wrapping paper, tripped, and got a black eye from the chair she was sitting in.  But it doesn't matter, because I actually own a banjo!

Yes, I finally got it! Wii!!! YES!. Okay... I'm done. Now for the story...

Well, I woke up at 5:50 am, quickly got dressed, and left with my grandma around 6:05 am. From there we drove in a frozen van to Best Buy to see who was there. Would you believe it, but the store expected to receive 150+ units had no one there! So, we journeyed (sp?) to Target. As we approached the front doors, we saw a short line of only eight. We immediately got out and took our places in line, and received insight that they had 40+. Then I thought, "this must be it. This must be the day I will get Wii." And, sure enough, after standing in the cold for fifty minutes (quite awkwardly, as I was in a dazed state, not wondering whether or not I really would get Wii), a woman came out from Target with tickets in her hand around 7:05 am. "Okay, we have forty-eight units." "YES" was the immediate thought. So, she handed out the tickets, and we left.
We drove to McDonald's next confidently, knowing that we had a Wii waiting for us for as long as 8:59 am. After a medium cappacino, hash brown, and sausage, egg and cheese McGriddle for me (steak, egg and cheese bagel & cappucino for my grandma), we left to go back to Target around 7:45 am.
So, we arrived back at the sacred place about ten minutes before the arches to electronic heaven would open, We were greeted by many people without tickets who were waiting outside for Wii (wimps). Then, right at 8 o'clock, the previously-mentioned woman opened the doors and lead us inside. Walking down the aisle to the electronics department, I knew that I would have Wii, but I just couldn't believe it. We approached the Wii section, and everyone dove for the controllers (too bad I only had JUST enough for the console alone with tax). I went to the electronics desk next and got into a line, where I could see the many Wii consoles stacked behind the cashiers. After one person in front of me left, I approached the cashier and handed him my "golden" ticket. And, after confusion with the three Visa gift cards I had ("Sorry, but you must know the amount or you can't use it"), I gave up all of my bills, was handed a hundred by my grandma, and collected my prize (rather heavy it was, I might add). Walking out of the store in triumph and glee, my grandma and I headed home to get ready for church. And, here I am at home, playing Wii Sports and exploring my new world.

The average is made to be 100 (the center of the bell curve; IQ is completely based on everyone else).

Was this an online test, might I ask? Because if it was, I'd say it's 99% likely that it's not accurate.

The powerpoint thing didn't work out, but here's the body of the report! This is sorta short but nonetheless full of information. It's actually all the information I could find from various websites combined. NO STEALING MY REPORT!!!


A Brief History of Liger’s
   

   Ligers (tigris x panthera leo) are hybrid breeds. They are the offspring of a female tiger and a male lion. In the wild, there are no ligers due to the fact that lions live in Africa and tigers live in Asia. Ligers are entirely zoo-bred. The first ligers were born in the October of 1823 to Curvier, a French zoologist, in England. An African lion and an Asiatic tiger were kept in the same room. They mated frequently throughout the July of 1823. They produced three liger cubs. These are only the first recorded liger cubs, as it is unknown to this day if any ligers were born before 1823. Ligers are sometimes called tigons, which is incorrect. A tigon is the offspring of a female lion and a male tiger. The appearance of a tigon is, also, distinctively different from a liger. Ligers like to be in the water. The trait comes from their tiger side. Lions hate to get wet.



Appearance


   Ligers have stripes on their back, their legs, the stomachs, and their tails. The stripes are a slightly darker color but can clearly be distinguished from their tawny-colored background. Ligers may also have rosettes, which they inherit from their lion parent. The rosettes are usually black, dark brown, or sandy brown. When ligers have rosettes, their coats are tawny, sandy brown, or golden. Ligers can also have pale golden, white, or stripe-less coats. This drastic difference in color can only occur when a white female tiger mates with lion. Male ligers, in most cases, do not have a mane. If they do have a mane though, it is very short.

There have been no cases in which there has been a black liger bred, but there are theories. This has been tried before by mating a jaguar with a tiger but it resulted in a stillbirth. If a jaguar and a tiger mated, the liger would not be purebred as a result of the jaguars’ genes and it wouldn’t be a liger, as the father would not be a lion.





Age and Size


   Liger’s are the worlds biggest cats (excluding Siberian tigers, which are purebred). The biggest liger in the world is over 1,200 lbs (554 kgs) and his name is Hercules. Hercules, when standing up on his back legs, is 10 ft. tall. He has the strength of a lion and the speed of a tiger, reaching up to 50 miles per hour. When he was three years old, in 2005, he weighed 900 lbs (408 kg) and was featured in Maxim magazine.

The oldest liger in the world was 24 years old. Her name was Shasta and she was born on May 14th, 1948 at the Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City, Utah. The oldest tiger that is living is named Nook. He lives in the Valley of Kings animal sanctuary and is 21 years old. He weighs 1, 210 lbs (550 kg). It was confirmed that Nook was still alive in January of 2007.


A Sterile Breeder


   Hybrids are usually sterile. This is not the case for the liger. Female ligers were always known to be fertile, although the males are sterile. It is because of genomic imprinting that the male ligers were thought to be sterile.

Generic imprinting is a biological occurrence that occurs in some genes when two inherited copies of the genes have opposite expression patterns. Each of the two inherited copies of the genes is either expressed or silenced, meaning that it is there but not shown, depending on the parental origin of the copy of the gene. Imprinted genes may be responsible for the liger’s unusual size. Another hypnosis is that the interaction of the lion genes in the tiger’s womb causes a difference. The tiger produces a hormone that sets the liger on a pattern of growth that does not end until the liger dies. The different hormones react and the male tiger stays in a sterile state. The male lions, despite being sterile, somehow mature sexually and mate with other female felines.







Ligers and their Offspring


   When ligers mate, they usually mate with another lion or another tiger.
When a liger mates with a tiger, their offspring is called ti-liger. When ligers mate with lions, their offspring is called li-liger. Li-liger’s look more like lions while ti-liger’s look more like tigers. The more genes of one cat that a liger’s children have, the more likely it is that they will look more closely related with that type of cat.

Ti-liger’s resemble golden tigers but with darker stripes. They also sound more like a tiger than their liger mothers and they rarely grow manes. This is all due to the amount of genes the tiger has in the ti-liger. One ti-liger was born in the Shambala preserve. His name was Nathaniel. He lived for 8-9 years and then died of a cancer. It is thought that his mixed genes might have contributed to the illness. His mother, Noelle, a liger, also died soon after her son.

I just thought up a song parody.

Those were the days (Nintendo Style)

Boy, the way that Kondo played.  Songs that left you in a daze.  Graphics didn't make a game, those were the days. 

And you knew who Mario was then, Zelda, Kirby and Megaman.  You know we could use a man like Captain Falcon again. 
 
  Didn't need the perfect one, back then everything was fun.  Before Xbox and Playstation, those were the days.

(Not meant to offend anyone, I just wrote a song from an old school purist's view.  Meant to be a parody of "All In The family"  where the theme song talks about how great things were back in the day.)

Thank you. Now, as you probably have read in the ANGST topic, my parents have refused to take a trip down *Historic* Route 66 for our vacation. Well, I have devised a clever and win/win/win plan to get what I want in a way that doesn't hurt anyone. Step-by-step of my plan is:

~ Wait until Mom and Dad are both retired, so they have all the time in the world and still get paid.(if they still have pets at this time, either my plans utterly go down the drain or they can tag along)
~ Tell them I'm going down Route 66 and they should come, because it'll be fun.(rental RV optional)
~ Pack 'em both in my car/rental RV with my Yorkie/Westie/some type of small dog and the Cars soundtrack.(perfect for the occasion!)
~ Pig out on a 72 ounce steak within one hour and paint Cadillacs that have been planted into the ground.

It can't fail! I just hafta wait about... 20 years or so. *insert dose of optimism here*

GG wins for 72 oz. steak.

I'm hopeful because of August. Two friends (one of which is my girlfriend) have birthdays, and during one of those birthdays, we'll be at Wizard World Chicago. We'll be there for all the days, and in addition to having my friend, my younger brother and my father there, there'll also be my girlfriend and two of my cousins (one of which is Yukinojo14 on KoL, not that anyone cares), and it'll be insane when the four high schoolers go around playing free demos of games, getting free cards/chips/figurines and entering random tournaments. My friend and I, when we went last year, each got a D&D Basic Set (my brother won stupid crap, and my father won D&D for Dummies) from the Wizards of the Coast booth, and I got a picture of myself with Pikachu at the Pokémon TCG booth (it sucks because of the camera).

I'm HOPEFUL because schools are closing due to the arctic temperatures that are present here, thanks to a mass of arctic air. Now, I already don't have school today (one o' those Teacher Inservice Days), and these temperatures are supposedly going to keep up all this week. The big picture is that I may not have to go to school all week if these single-digit and negative temperatures/wind chills keep coming. So, I'm staying HOPEFUL that this fantasy will come true.

I'm hopeful because if I play my cards right (and I mean that quite literally), I'll have a Mr. Accessory soon (my father won't let me donate for one; because I play one of my friends in Speed all the time, and since we have a special rule allowing for more cards in a hand depending on wins, I have 7-card hands instead of 5, and since my friend is sick of my advantage, he's going to get me the Mr. A so that I'll reset the win/loss record).

Yes, we play Speed by crazy rules.

My friend just told me that our psychology teacher (and former world history teacher) is planning to take a trip to Italy or Greece next year as a sort of senior trip for my class.  I should start saving now, since he said that it's a few thousand dollars.  But I don't care, since I that would be the best trip ever.  And, with the guy I was working for before back in town, I have a job again.  Now I just need to get my grades back up, and I'll be just about set.  And the grades shouldn't be too hard, since the most difficult class I have is the AP US History, which isn't so much hard as it is more work.

Oh, and though a few days late, the semi-formal on Friday was a major success, and I (surprisingly) enjoyed myself.

I'm hopeful because as I post this, it's snowing! Also, those schools that were closed weren't closed because of snow-related issues, they were closed because of technical problems (lost electricity or broken boiler).

Post by: BP on February 06, 2007, 06:31:39 PM
If you're not up to date, the first DS I had was lost, the second inexplicably broke, and this one is fine aside from a broken hinge. I was thinking about getting a DS Lite, but I wouldn't have enough money for that and the plethora of Wii games I'd hate to be broke at time of release.
But then my mom asked me if I'd be into my job from last summer--babysitting. The same kids, I guess their dad is still in Iraq. It might be easier this time: They've aged a year, The Wii will keep them interested longer than the Nintendo 64, blah blah blah. The hard part is my sister might not be around to help me out... but if that's the case, I make double the money (I'm turning into Wario, help me)!Then again, I had to handle them alone half of last summer... Anyway, with that I'll have plenty of money for Wii games released after summer (and I know my parents, I can borrow for any games released during and pay after).And if I have enough money, I can just get a DS Lite anytime!
Also, new mutt (http://img102.imageshack.us/img102/6492/dsc01427tn7.jpg). My sister wants to name her Penny. It looks like I have tin foil in my mouth in that photo, or maybe a brand new penny. I don't.

Also, I just figured out I ruin some insignificant guys' life just for existing. He would love to see me fail just because I have a better life than him. Too bad for him since everyone loves me and in the eyes of authority figures I can do no wrong.

So I woke up at about 8. In my mind I'm ready to get up, but the "Lazy Vid" in my head still had current control of my bodily functions, and said "Lay in bed for about 30 or 40 more minutes". So I did that, and got out of bed afterward, and got my clothes on. I told my father that we were going to go to Toys "R" Us, and he told me he had to do other things first.

So, by 10 AM (the time the store opened) we left. As we were driving there he told me for the 98423789234th time that this would be the last huge Christmas gift (I asked for one for Christmas, but did not get one only because we could not find one) I will ever get. We got there, and my father asked one of the employees where Wiis are kept. He pointed us to a line in the game section, one I was sure was too big for everyone to get a Wii, but I tried anyway.

When I got up to it it wasn't as long as I thought it would be. Two employees were standing nearby, and one asked "Are you on the line for the Wii?" and I replied, "Yes". She then said I'd need a ticket, and gave me one that said "47" on it. I thanked them the second my father joined me on the line, asking the employees if there were enough in stock. The one standing next to the girl who gave me the ticket nodded to him as if he had just asked what color the sky was.

We got to the front of the line after 5 minutes of waiting, and an old lady behind the desk put the box containing the console on it, and told us the price. We paid for it, and I thanked my father in the car.

So yeah I'd post a picture of me with the Wii but I don't have one.

I'm hopeful that "guaranteed" will eventually not be a commonly misspelled word.

Anyway, my next concert is tomorrow, and we'll be performing a couple of John Williams pieces (you know, the guy who does the music for Spielberg and Lucas films). We're doing a short arrangement of the Jurassic Park theme (the song that plays as the man and woman encounter the dinosaurs on the island for the first time), and then the theme from Raiders of the Lost Ark (the Indiana Jones theme).

Like the other concerts, I'll be getting this on tape (and then on the internet).

I'm HOPEFUL that this awesome snow storm will keep raging on. My area is already supposed to receive somewhere between 8-14 inches of snow. Most likely, school will be closed tomorrow. As I've finished up my homework, all that's left is a little shovelin' and then some Wii time. If only this could happen again sometime after my birthday, when I will most likely have some new video games for DS and Wii.

I am hopeful because I think God was looking out for me yesterday. While I was turning the corner, walking to get inside a bus that was taking me to a wrestling tourney (by the way, it was pitch black out) a car going about 50 dashes right by the side of the bus, missing me by about an inch. Had a been a second faster, I would have been hit and most likely killed. Thank you God!  ::) *looking up high*

It was very nice having gone to see wrestling last night. Got to see the hometown hero, plus some of my favorite guys and Ariel, who is even lovelier in person than she is on TV, which was pretty hot to begin with. It was also a pleasant surprise to see Undertaker show up after the final match, even though he was advertised for next week's taping, leading us all to believe he screwed us over once again.

Mr. Wiggles, you made me remember a past event:

My friend (a dude), a heavy metal rock fan, bet me that I couldn't hack into his email account. He challenged the wrong person: I did figure out his password. Just tried a few words that were associated with his favorite heavy metal bands. He still has the same password now...and he owes me $$$...but I'm not interested in ruining his life.

So, you hack into peoples' email accounts as well as leech onto your neighbor's wireless access point.

I honestly have to say I don't approve. You're basically peering into other peoples' private lives and stealing internet access.

I have a couple of my own suggestions for each of those things (take 'em or leave 'em, you're most likely going to choose the latter):
1. Stop it.
2. Get your own internet.

Response a la mode:

PaperMario: No this is the first time I ever screwed with someone's email. When I went to Yahoo Mail he was already logged in so I just took that oppurtunity.

Vid: I didn't hack into his account, he was already logged in and nowhere in sight. Also, I have my own internet connection, I only used my neighbor's Wi-Fi for trading Mii's. Then they locked me out since they're greedy college kids.

PaperLuigi: No account stealing here, just ruinging someone's day, or possibly week.

CTOAN: I have a life, I just don't care to delve into it much. Besides, I don't like sucking. I prefer gloating.

SushieBoy: I was offline for most of the day yesterday doing work and watching TV. By the time I was done, it was 12:30 and there's no way I'd turn on the comp just to respond to random people on the internet.

Yeah, my sister didn't approve of my actions either, but all she said was I'm horrible and then sent me an m-preg story. To which I had to wash my eyes with bleach to get rid of.

I told her that she needed the CD-ROM that came with the printer. After she had got it, I had installed the program to her computer (which was a Compaq, BTW...). She was then glad because she was able to print her paper. Seeing her happy made me happy!

I am HOPEFUL/HAPPY for all of the presents and loot I got (yes,nIogotttorrobeaabanklforlmyybirthday.) Here's the entire list:

-$65 in cash and a $50 Best Buy gift card
-The two-disc CD set "Stadium Arcadium" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers
-The three-disc CD set "How the West Was Won" by Led Zeppelin (now I must erase a whole bunch of my stuff on my mp3 player to make room for all of this)
-Yoshi's Island DS
-A pair of Hi-top Chuck Taylor All-stars (original black and white)
-The DVD of "How the West Was One" (actually, Amazon.com screwed the order up and sent us the CD set, but my dad's going to straighten it out)
-A completely awesome chocolate birthday cake with chocolate icing and sprinkles from my Grandma, an individually-purchased slice of cookie cake with icing, a small chocolate pie that is good for one serving, and some really really good mints
-And last, but definitely not least, a great time with my family. I really love my family, and I know they love me. That just feels great.

However, this was only my family party. My house is not big enough to house (hahaha, house and house? Eh? Eh? Ay -_-) both my family and my friends at the same time, so I am having a seperate party for my friends. So, I get one party where I get to spend time having fun with my family, and I get another where I can spend time goofing off with my friends (please note that I'm not trying to act spoiled or anything. It's actually better to seperate my friends from family, as my friends and I are more prone to goof off than my family and I. Doesn't mean that my family is not goofy at all, though :D). So, these next couple of days are going to be really great for me, and I am HOPEFUL/HAPPY for all of this.

I'd hate to miss school. I've had 3 delayed openings in February due to an ice storm, and when they do that, a period is cut from the day, with the rest of the classes being shortened.
Title: Re: The HOPEFUL thread: Be happy here!
Post by: MaxVance on March 04, 2007, 09:21:21 PM
I've always thought that delayed openings were more trouble than they are worth. They cause more hassle for parents (because one parent may need to stay with the kids until the bus arrives), students (because classes will be rushed), and teachers (because one class will be behind the others). I think it would be easier to just stay home.

It's really quite sunny here, too. Not particularly warm, but just warm enough to the point where I only have to wear a windbreaker (versus wearing a normal or heavy coat, you loophole finders).

We had fun in Physics today, as we struggled to take notes while being attacked by a stray ferret. This guy was found at the district print center by the Chemistry teacher, but he got tired of having a ferret around his classroom. Even better, by the end of the ferret's second day in the science wing, its owner saw the lost and found notice in the newspaper and picked up the ferret. I'm not sure I'm really going to miss the ferret-- he smelled terrible. But it was fun while it lasted.

Well, I have a sort of mixed feeling with me right now. The good news is that I had another snow day yesterday (a real stupid at that, as it barely snowed at all. But, a snow day's a snow day). The free day gave me time to play through WarioWare: Smooth Moves' Single Player mode.
However, the bad news is that this is now our eighth snow day, and we are only allowed five a school year. I'm not sure how my school is going to take care of those extra days (take them off of spring break? Extra days at the end of the year?), but my HOPE is that they just won't bother with them.

I love this time of year.  Why?  Simple: State High School League Tournaments.  I had a friend snag second place at state for wrestling, and our basketball team went to state last year and got third place.  Even if my school's not participating, it's always fun to watch the state tournaments.

I somehow got the Varia Suit 14 minutes into [Metroid Zero Mission], immediately after obtaining bombs.

I beat my old time. 11:52, still immediately after bombs. After obtaining it, I went straight to Kraid, and got the Speed Booster before the Ice Beam or Power Grip (ridiculous amounts of bomb jumping). I would've skipped the Power Grip entirely, but there's a thing blocking the path through Norfair until it's obtained (with no bugs nearby that I could find to drain it with). I have the Ice Beam, but only because I don't have the Long Beam (I'm getting it on my way into Tourian). I'm on my way out of Ridley right now; total play time so far: 00:58:41.

I love this time of year.  Why?  Simple: State High School League Tournaments.  I had a friend snag second place at state for wrestling, and our basketball team went to state last year and got third place.  Even if my school's not participating, it's always fun to watch the state tournaments.

Ding-dangit, who was he?! I'm a wrestler myself.

I finished a whole dungeon in LoZ:WW yesterday ^_^.

EDIT: And I finished a new poem! The inspiration came to me when I realized my eyes weren't the same color that they were 2 years ago.

eyes

they are the reason i am attracted to that certain somebody

that i can stare at them for hours straight and not get tired

why i love to look at you

they send out a message that you love me and you always will

i can see your feeling through your eyes

they tell me you care for me

that you love me

that you'll be there for me

i hope that you read my eyes the same way I read yours



I felt the need to write that poem in lowercase letters.

Wow, that's terrific. The lowercase words remind me of e.e. cummings. I wish I could write poems; the closest I've come, besides goofy shrimp/Cobra Commander haikus, is nothing. Unless you count my Ninja vs. Pirates script, which is coming along quite nicely (and it's actually a serious movie).

The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe is a short story that creeped me out. I have vowed never to read it again. It makes me feel strange. I had to read poems by Cummings last semester for literature. I think I recently read some.

A good story, I liked it. It's unfortunate that I am exposed to things like this so late, though--had I read it before '99, I'd've caught the reference in that one episode of SpongeBob when Mr. Krabs puts those squeaking boots in the floorboards... heh heh heh...
All is right in the world for me now. There are upcoming things about which I will be hopeful, but
1. That's counting chickens before they hatch.
2. Talking about my most recent adventures in piracy here in the forums isn't the greatest thing to do. But there are three things concerning emulation and stuff, two hopeful and one angsty that I cannot say.

I just found the coolest defense tactic in the entire animal kingdom.

I was looking online, doing research for my psychology paper, and ended up at Wikipedia's phobia page.  I found the fear of bees, apiphobia, which I thought I should read up on, being I do have a large fear of bees, or any stinging insect.  Fascinated clicking later, I find the Asian Giant Hornet, the largest, most venomous in the world, and how it can devastate an entire colony of honeybees.  I then read about how the bees are able to defend themselves.  When a hornet scout enters the area of a hive, it releases a pheromones to attract more hornets.  The bees notice this pheromone, and prepare for the coolest thing ever.  They all sit inside the entrance of the hive, waiting for the hornet to enter, then swarm him with about 500 bees.  Then all the bees vibrate to raise the temperature of the ball-o-bees, and cook the hornet.  And it's not the gruesome way of death that I find so interesting, but rather that the much smaller bees, who would have no chance if they tried to sting or bite, find a new way to take out the much stronger threat.  I guess I'm just a fan of the underdog.

Today, I just got the greatest of news!

Last year, I came up with the idea for a new type of hygiene product. I told my mom about it and she worked to get it patented. After it got patented, my mom sent the idea to several hygiene compaies, including Johnson & Johnson and Procter & Gamble. After about two months, Dial, one of the companies my mom sent it to, agreed to see us to discuss the terms of selling my invention. She and I are scheduled to fly out to their headquarters in California April 10. My mom and I estimate that we can make at least 20 million on this deal, which means...

Also, I may not be obtaining a DS as soon as I thought...but my brother and I both have a chance of obtaining a PSP, because someone else on my father's shift at work is selling his for $100 with two games (some NFS game and Ghost in the Shell). The only problem is that the battery cover is missing, but I'm pretty sure you can buy those from Sony...right?

Also, this church I've started going to is awesome. For one thing, it's only for high school students. For another, for about two hours or so before the service, we get to hang out in the game room, which has multiple pool tables, a PS2 w/DDR and arcade-style mats (with the metal plates and bar), a couple of arcade machines, a few other PS2s, a ping-pong table, and a Wii...out of all those, I've only played DDR and a few games of pool, so on Wednesday I'll have to try the Wii.

I am very happy right now because I've lost a little over 10 pounds.  For the past month I've been watching what I eat and eating healthy.  I've made it a routine to eat a bowl of plain cheerios every morning, and I think this has had a big part in losing weight.  I have also been workking out on some gym systems that my local fire station has, and I've been building some muscle.  For the first time in my life I can actually flex my pecs and bisepts.  For my whole life I can always remember being the butter-ball, or the odd man out because of my weight.  But now I actually feel good and normal the way I think everyone should feel.  I recomend this to anyone, knowing your fit has to be one of the best highs in the world.

Lucky me:
-I wouldn't've remembered to go get a novel for fourth period unless after wood shop, G-Dawg commented "Ah, gotta get a novel for Potter's."
-When we get there, I glance at some shelves looking for a book that appears to be copyright 2000 or later  I spotted a book called Dark Waters by Catherine MacPhail (as of chapter three I don't think the writing phails though)
-Whaddya know, it's 2003. The description on the back doesn't sound bad
-I go to the counter and the lady's like "Er, where's your Greek Mythology book from some months ago?" I had it on me, it never left my bag.
-She tells me that by next week, books the whole class had to have like that would have a $5 late fee each week. Wow.

-It is now raining. Fresh air for all... except those inside my house. The dust from the kitchen construction is covering the house and it only just occurred to me that that's probably why I've been coughing lately.

Which is exactly what I was going to say.

"Everybody Rejoice":

Everybody look around
'Cause there's a reason to rejoice you see
Everybody come out
And let's commence to singing joyfully
Everybody look up
And feel the hope that we've been waiting for

Everybody's glad
Because our silent fear and dread is gone
Freedom, you see, has got our hearts singing so joyfully
Just look about
You owe it to yourself to check it out
Can't you feel a brand new day?
Can't you feel a brand new day?
Can't you feel a brand new day?
Can't you feel a brand new day?


...Okay that's enough of that song.

I am hopeful because I am in the process of doing my homework right now, and plan on keeping it up this term. I have to take the classes over again because my old computer had something wrong with it and wouldn't let me save my classwork, but I've already explained all that in the ANGST thread, so I won't bother with that again.

Long story short: I am happy for being able to do homework properly again. :)

Most of the levels in the 4th and 5th YIDS are pretty merciless. I some of them took me days to complete. Then again, that means Artoon actually made a pretty good game!

Busy week, both in good and bad ways.  Good ways include getting Tiger Woods PGA for the Wii, which is pretty good.  Similar enough to Wii Sports golf to not need excessive amounts of practice, but deep enough in control to be different.  I like it, though the putting is a little iffy.  Also, when I got Tiger Woods, I was able to find extra remotes for the Wii, so I can finally play with 4 people.  Finally, I was in the talent show at my school yesterday, and it was awesome.  I was an Elvis Impersonator.  The audience went nuts when the curtains opened, and got even louder the first time I gyrated.  Even though I forgot like 3 words towards the end, it was great.  The entire show was cool.  My buddy and I are already planning for next year.  Him and I are going to play dueling banjos, and he wants to get a group together to sing Guns and Roses, though he didn't say what song.  He wants me to do the vocals, which I won't mind, because I had so much fun this year, I can't wait to do something else.

Not necessarily. I found the presentation to be lacking and the controls to be kind of awkward, and later on the game gets difficult in the frustrating sense, as opposed to the challenging sense.

Oh, and I prefer Socialism to Communism.

I just laughed harder than I think I ever have at a song.  It seems to be 70's or disco night on a radio station I'm listening to, and there was some song that I think was called "The Sweetest Hangover."  I found it hysterical.  I am also starting to think this cold medicine is getting to me.  It said that it may cause drowsiness, but I'm more awake now than I have been in a long time.  It's causing me to get really goofy.  I like it, with all the disco music and dancing.  Ooh, do the hustle!!

Yes, I realise that it's probably a fake, since this magazine is also the same one that said Sonic and Tails were in SSBM, but hey, the art they created/recieved looks pretty official to me. I may scan it in here in the near future.

It reminds me of the time they said that Nintendo would be offering a realistic version of LoZ:WW as a preorder gift for TP. I asked the guys at GameStop about and they just gave me a strange look.

Hey! I also got a Dialga stylus free when I reserved Pokèmon Diamond! They're pretty huge, maybe three times as thick as a normal DS Lite stylus. However, you owning a collectible Dialga stylus could mean two different things:

1. You received it free by reserving Pokèmon Diamond and/or Pearl.
2. You bought it for $20.00 and did not reserve one or both of the two games (which I guarantee no one will do).
Just want to point it out :P.

Yes Toad, Mushroom Kingdom Hearts is not real.

I do see that it is not real right this second, but give them a couple of months. They'll be announcing some sort of secret project involving Nintendo and Square Enix and "some popular RPG".

I honestly think they're already working on it, as in the April issue of Nintendo Power, Nintendo answers a fan letter about how they (Nintendo) have been talking about Kingdom Hearts a lot lately (in past issues of NP).

Maybe I'm putting clues together that aren't there, but I really think that Nintendo and Square Enix are up to something..

I knew that one was a fake.. Somehow it was obviously not real, though I couldn't quiet tell what was wrong (other than the fact that Sonic and Tails were in that picture, anyway).

I'm hoping that even if this is an April Fool's joke, that it one day becomes reality.. :)

My dad got brakes for the Ghia, so it can safely be driven now. It's such a nice car, I can't wait till I'm driving it.
Also, I got photos of it for people who still are wondering what the Dukar a Ghia is.
Front (http://wheresdezzer.googlepages.com/ghia-front.JPG)
Back (http://wheresdezzer.googlepages.com/ghia-back.JPG)
I've got big plans for it. My dad's going to take it to a local body shop soon so it'll be refurbished and all pretty (painted silver), I'll make a cupholder for it in wood shop after spring break, I'll try my hardest to obtain a Mario bobblehead (I have a nice bobblehead my cousin made of a little Japanese girl, if I put a magnet on the bottom it'd stay on the dashboard). When I'm 18 and California law permits me to have passengers under 18, I'll have back seats put in. It has fantastic leg room for the front seats, but the back would be terribly cramped. Well, if you want a ride badly enough you'll get in. ViRUS got to curl up on the wooden bench-type thing behind the seats for a ride home today, but without seatbelts that's not even legal.
Yeah, long post. But I love that car.

Hmm. Well that's sad to hear.
I got a 1 GB microSD card and adapter. I'm going to use it for nasty piratey purposes when my M3 DS Simply arrives here (which will be in about three days). Hold on, though, you're probably thinking "SD cards are ex-PENSIVE, with a hyphen! Where did you get $80 for a microSD card?!" I have no clue why, but it was $9.23 on Amazon, adapter included (the adapter is so that it will fit into a computer's SD card slot, or any other slot that takes SD cards). I checked today and the price actually dropped to $8.40 (http://amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_gw/104-5082230-1511946?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=microSD&Go.x=13&Go.y=10&Go=Go)... My mom looked and was surprised to see, it's the kind her cell phone could take. She's gonna take advantage and buy two, probably... Wise thing to do.
Look at how tiny it is!!!

That thing in the corner is a small case to hold both the adapter and microSD card. Thank heavens, I'd lose it in an instant.
Edit: The price fell another seven cents?!!!

I got my Wii back from Nintendo............well, not my Wii, a whole new one. They were unable to repair mine, I guess, or just decided instead of repairing it to give me a new one. I still have yet to test it (homework needs to be assimilated), and then I'll have to start all over on my games and Miis. And I worked so hard in Wii Sports and WarioWare: Smooth Moves ;_; . Oh well, it'll all be good, and I can still redownload my Virtual Console games (Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda, and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time).

Not to mention Big Dave breaking his streak wouldn't have benefitted anyone. The guy is injury prone, quite boring, has heat backstage and can barely stumble through a match without someone there to carry him. Then again, he's not as lifeless as Lashley and he isn't as despicable as Cena.

Sure, it's barely visible, but in a year or too, I'll be walking down the street, and people will probably think I'm a dinosaur/ghost/bounty hunter and ask for my autograph.

On a related note, I do not have necrophobia! I'm just sayin', in case those zombies get out of line, I'd be willing to re-kill them, because that's what they'd have wanted. Also, I don't want any grimy undead touching my Pop-Tarts or my rad new goatee.

Guy #1: Nah, we need something...more adorable. Hey, wait! You there, would you consider being Easter's mascot?

Easter Bunny: Well, sure. I mean, my first name's Easter, anyway.

Guy #1: Okay, it's settled. Swear Words Man, you can go home.

Swear Words Man: Oh, gosh-diddly-darn it. By golly, maybe I'll get it next time.

I'm hopeful because it's Easter weekend.

I just don't get how the whole Easter Bunny thing started. Could someone inform me on this?

And you call yourself religious. :P

Anyway, eggs have this odd connection with souls. *trails off, as he's honestly forgotten most of the story he was told*

I was told that the rabbits and bird were a symbol of fertility, which technically isn't confined to one religion.

By the way, the Easter Bunny isn't that oversized cartoon thingy that everyone seems to think of. He actually looks like a real rabbit, except he can talk and spread spring weather. At least that's the way I see it. :P

I am religious. I don't see the connection between the sacrifice of a Savior and a stupid bunny that hops around and hides eggs.

They might have...........some odd connection with the soul, but it's not nearly as important as Jesus in my opinion. Really, it's fine for people who don't follow/believe him, but I think the Christians (and I know from experiance that I'm not talking about everyone here) should cut the crap and dump the bunny.

According to last night's episode of South Park, St. Peter was a bunny.

Post by: Chupperson Weird on April 05, 2007, 08:18:08 PM
Rabbits are a sign of fertility because they procreate like heck.
Spring is a sign of fertility because stuff is growing everywhere ever.
Easter was the Pagan fertility festival.
Spring is also when dead-ish stuff comes back to life again.
Easter is when Jesus returned from the dead.
Make sense?
Title: Re: The HOPEFUL thread: Be happy here!
Post by: PaperLuigi on April 05, 2007, 09:50:09 PM
I suppose, but I still think the whole concept of the Easter Bunny is really quite silly. It's just another excuse to make the entire holiday itself about gifts.

Darn it, I should just stop ranting when this is the Hopeful thread. *hits himself over the head*

I received my Wii.........well, an entirely new Wii back from Nintendo on Monday! It works like a charm and I easily redownloaded everything from my VC games to my channels. Now I can get back to playing WarioWare: Smooth Moves and Wii Sports and surfing the web on my TV.

I also have more very HOPEFUL news. I am going to a Chevelle concert on April 9th! I can't wait for the concert, which no doubt should be a fantastic performance by one of my favorite modern bands. I will also soon be getting their new album, Vena Sera, which I've heard is their best yet.

And, last but not least, IT IS SPRING BREAK AT LAST!! I can't wait to start goofing off...wait, I'm already doing that now!

Agreed.  Besides, if I were to pick, I'd still take Snoopy as the Easter Beagle any day of the week over a rabbit.

Yeah, the bunny needs to be trashed for the real holiday meaning, which is celebrating (again, this is not meant to offened anyone, and I know this only has meaning for Christians) the rising of Jesus.
Title: Re: The HOPEFUL thread: Be happy here!
Post by: BP on April 05, 2007, 11:19:17 PM
Well, that's what Easter is. So saying that's what it should be about shouldn't offend anybody, since anybody who isn't Christian and has no relations with Christians likely doesn't celebrate Easter. So if anyone would be offended by that statement in any way, they would... lose.
Rabbits are otherwise cool, except those lab accident Rayman ones that creep me out.

Good news.  The professor I work for has started to do surveys again after close to 2 months without any.  I only got one night of work for this survey, but that's alright because he said he had 2 or 3 lined up afterwards.
Also, after looking for one for quite a while, I finally found a PS2, and I'm very glad I bought it.  I also bought Devil May Cry, and it is an awesome game.
Finally, I got some applications for more steady jobs than occasional surveys, and I got a call from Spencers Gifts.  I may have an actual job very soon.
Oh, and when I was playing Tetris yesterday in my chem class, I got 154 lines, and something like 160000 points.

Seriously, today is Easter.

I am hopeful that people will stop thinking is a gift giving holiday.. I was at work earlier today,  and all the customers that came through and talked about Easter were talking about what they were going to give their families/what they have recieved from families. Easter should not work that way.

Easter should be about the time spent together with loved ones. Small presents are ok,  but when you're talking about getting somebody a TV or car, that's just entirely too much. Of course, the candies/chocolates/cards are ok, because you're acknowledging somebody in a way that isn't too incredibly offensive.

This is not directed at anyone in particular, but I find it annoying when people who I will not name act as if it's wrong to get, give or accept gifts any time of the year. That said, I agree; the most you should give or get on Easter is either a bunch of jelly beans or a cheap plastic calculator (20 jelly beans = one cheap plastic calcuator).

Whoa whoa whoa. Just an honest question. I probably worded it differently than I was thinking. What I meant was: Why do people not think getting gifts for Easter is good, yet Christmas practically revolves around it? I was just using you as an example. That being said, I do think Easter gifts are a bit extravagant and unnecessary.

I barely get anything for Christmas anymore; I got the Wii because my brother wanted it, and that was it.  :P

Actually, people find Easter 10 to 100 times more religious than Christmas. It's easy to believe someone was born, it's harder to believe they rose from the dead after being killed a couple of days earlier.

4/20 is also Hitler's Birthday, but WarpWrattler is dumb to worry about any specific dates. With only 365 of them, every day has wonderful and tragic events alike in its history.

My last day is sometime in mid-June.

But I have my own good news other than no school.  My english teacher from last year called earlier tonight to tell me that the poem that I sent in last year is being published.  It was some contest where students had to write a poem about living in the city, and I only did it because my public speaking teacher made my class do it.  It's kinda funny, since I generally hate poetry, so I just spewed any quasi-deep sounding bull.  But, it made it all the way to the end, and it's being published next week.  Also, on the 24th, I get to read it at Syracuse University for May Fest.  And I get a free copy of the book, too.

And, I have an interview at DSW (a shoe store) for a potential job.  It seems like a good enough job, since all I see myself doing is either cashier or stock, and I can't help enjoying the smell of shoe leather.  Wish me luck!

I'm hopeful that there's gonna be double episodes of Viva Piñata. ^_^ One of the episodes is at the same time Bratz usually is, that probably means that they'll finally get rid of that crappy show based on a bunch of dolls. 8D

It's a show based on a video game, so it's quality is definitely questionable. Actually, GG is probably the first case I've seen of someone who likes a show based on a game but hasn't actually played the game the show is based. 0_o

It's not my fault I haven't played the game. I wanna play it sooooooooooooo bad. But Mom and Dad won't let me have a console/handheld that I'll only ever get just one game for. So... *sigh* no Viva Piñata game for me. Oh well. The show is good enough for me. ^_^

BTW The Chef, I started watching the Pokemon anime at least 6 months before I ever played a single Pokemon game.

Linked for massive. (http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g16/MidgetBottle/leekspin2.jpg)

I may have failed the challenge, but at least I lasted a solid 2 hours. The song made me feel strange things.

-:10, I was loving it, trying to sing along.
-:20, I felt as though a half hour had passed, but I was still 10 minutes away
-:39, Oh good lord, someone please kill me, take me out of this misery
-:46, I started feeling numb in my legs, I don't know why
-:50, Zombie-state, I couldn't think at all
-1:03, my head started to feel numb, I couldn't concentrate
-1:15, I kept shifting around in my seat but couldn't get comfortable no matter what
-1:42, I fell into a zen state, where I felt relaxed and isolated at the same time.

By the time I reached the end, I felt I've reached my limit and finally closed the window (before screencapping it), but at that point it was drilled in my head and I was quite used to it. I had to play the Fresh Prince theme to try and get it out of my head.

Title: Re: The HOPEFUL thread: Be happy here!
Post by: Mr. Wiggles on April 12, 2007, 05:53:45 PM
The challenge is to listen to the song on full blast for 7 hours straight. You don't win anything other than the possible immunity to the song.

I'm not sure where the challenge originates from, but I've seen some people who have acheived the 7 hour mark, and some who had multiple windows of it opened.

Good lord, that's madness! Seriously, that's enough to drive someone to alcoholism.

By the way, I'm happy because I saw that video of Kelsey Grammar (or however you spell his name) fall down, and it sounds like he said "Oh, Glorb", which is pretty sweet. Furthermore, I looked up "Glorb" on Google, and it says there's a lantern called Brunton Glorb, and a song called "Glorb the Magnificent". Now that I have lanterns, songs of my magnificence, and that guy who played that guy on Cheers on my side, my evil empire will spread throughout the galaxy.

In addition to having Dance of the Bellossom playing on my computer(which always makes me happy), I finally got off my fat, lazy butt and made the Viva Piñata humanizations I've wanted to do since the cartoon started airing. Also, I came up with this pun-tastic review of part of a Dancing with the Stars episode:

So I was watching part of Dancing with the Stars the other night, particularly a part with John Ratzenberger in it. I thought he would hamm it up on the dance floor, but it seems the big rig actually can dance. He wasn't as abominable as I thought he would be, and he wasn't being undermined by anyone. I just hope he doesn't have fleas crawl all over him before next time. In related news, I find it fishy that Heather Mill's leg hasn't come off yet.

Guess all the references and I'll give you a virtual cookie. Hint: There's six references.

Today, I finally decided to go into the Pit Of 100 Trials in PM2, and I, I.......... I defeated BoneTail! Here were my stats before entering:

Level: 30
HP: 30 (I had one HP plus badge)
FP: 30
BP: Can't remember, it was over 60 as I recall.

I had equipped all these diffrent badges, Power Pluses, Defense Pluses, Damage Dodges, Unsimplifiers, All these made my regular jump attack was 14 (seven, then seven) My hammer was 10. Any attack that was below 5 was useless against me! I only took less than 3 damage per attack on the boss, I'm good at supergaurding though so I barely took damage travelling down. I was also offended when I saw the message: "You got a Strange Sack!" But I found out it was an inventory-doubling object :D. So, In conclusion, I beat Bonetail and I'm ready to get all Zess T. Recipes (If anyone wants some recipes, let me know) After Stats:

Level: 34
HP: 30
FP: 30
BP: over 70.

PS: If you can get two or more unsimplifiers from the badge shop, try it, it's alot of fun :D

It's a pretty good one, with a dual core, 2 gigahertz processor and 2GB of RAM. Unfortunately, the hard disk space is less than I thought it would be. This laptop better last, as it cost roughly half of my personal savings.

I'm hopeful because I've discovered that in almost any game I play that has character-customization options, I can make the main character look like the GTA III guy. All it takes is a black jacket and some green pants, and you're set. In fact, this gives me a good idea for a Halloween costume...

While I don't really feel that today was that great, I was just looking back, and it was a good day.  I went to my first block class (Chemistry), and skipped my 2nd block (health 1) to go to my buddies Psychology class.  I almost made it through the whole class without the teacher realizing I wasn't supposed to be there, but the last five minutes, he noticed.  I figured he would send me to in school suspension, "ISS", but I got off easy since I'm generally a great student in my health class, and that health class went to a play going on in the auditorium.  All I have to do is two days of after school detention, and I got to choose the days since I'm I guess you could say friends with both teachers.  I just can't push it and expect that kinda treatment anymore. 
In my last class, Chemistry again (double block every other day), I got the rest of my work done, and completely shut down some idiot trying to be funny.  I really don't like the guy, and he was being extra loud since we had a substitute.  He was making fun of people who I actually AM friends with, so I just started ragging on him for different reasons, and all he could do walk away and mutter that I'm a lame.  He was quiet for the last few minutes after that, and I knew I had done my charitable thing for the day. 
Then after all my classes, I got all the stuff I needed to join the tennis team, which will be cool, since I think I should have some other sport under my belt.  I also spoke with my counselor about an application to take college classes next year, and she told me that even though I messed up my final in my English 11 class, I could still take AP English next year if I do a prep class over the summer.  I'm really happy about that since I didn't realize that a project we did for the class was the final, and only got a 20, and I didn't think it would be possible to get into AP. 
So overall, better than it seemed.

Title: Re: The HOPEFUL thread: Be happy here!
Post by: Mr. Wiggles on April 28, 2007, 08:52:05 PM
Today must be my lucky day.

First off, I actually made it to my FastTrack orientation class today (after no-showing my previous two chances and subsequently being dropped from the program). I scored pretty high on the assessment tests, high enough that I qualified for the Honors English courses, though I have to talk to my counselor about signing up for it.

Second, I beat Super Paper Mario today. I won't delve into any details but it felt great to finally complete the game (ok so it's not 100% complete but whatever I still want those PM1 and 2 Catch Cards).

Thirdly, I managed to get Pokemon Diamond today despite having 70 dollars prepared yesterday to get both versions yet blowing almost all of it just before actually going to the store. Luckily, my mom was nice enough to lend me the extra 30 bucks to buy the game. I went to Fry's and got the last copy of it on the shelf (Pearl version was completely sold out lol). I hung around an hour or so as my brother got some PSP and DS games and I felt kind of bad seeing all these little kids coming in, asking the associates where the new Pokemon games are, being pointed towards the third aisle, and leaving disappointed because there were no copies left. Oh well, knowing kids, they probably managed to get it (at an inflated price of 39.95) at the Wal Mart next door (Low prices is a scam marketing tool when I got it for 35 bucks).

Fourth, when I first started out, I chose the boy (though I was really tempted to use the girl character because the guy has a butt ugly design) and when I chose Piplup for the first time, it came out a female. I was like "dfdfdfd, I has a female Piplup. Heck yes, sup breeding couple".

Fifth, the "Last Episode" (air quotes around last because there's still a sixth season, a tv movie, and a new episode next month) of Ed, Edd n' Eddy was actually good. It completely made up for some pretty crappy episodes produced since its 2005 return. I officially rank it up there with 1 + 1 = Ed and Honor Thy Ed as one of the best episodes ever.

I'm so happy right now. I love me. <3.

Post by: WarpRattler on April 28, 2007, 09:09:33 PM
Inflated price at Wal*Mart? They have it for $35 here, though I'll probably buy it at GameStop just because I can trade in a game or two and get an extra 20% trade-in credit due to promotions.

Wow, haven't posted in a while (don't want to become a Sapph, now, do I?) Well, there are many things I have to be HOPEFUL for that have occurred in the past few months. Here's a list:

-I plan to get a summer job at a hot dog/ice cream place to earn money for a new guitar amp, bass guitar & amp, Onyx DS Lite, 12-string Alvarez acoustic guitar, and many other things as well.
-I have gotten my Wii back [a long time ago, actually. Nintendo has extremely-fast service] and am back online and playing games.
-I received a free very much-used drum kit w/ three tom-toms, a hi hat without a foot pedal, a bass drum & pedal, and a snare drum & stand. Even though it is very worn, you'd be surprised at its great sound.
-I have Pokémon Diamond and am gaining fast progress on beating it.
-School is almost over and I have a growing action plan to get all of these end-of-the-year final projects done.
-It is slowly getting warmer out.

That's about it for now. I guess I'm just bursting with old and new HOPEFULNESS. I HOPE that it lasts.

Oh. Em. Gee. Oh em gee oh em gee oh em gee.
Before, I had a shrimpy TV... (http://wheresdezzer.googlepages.com/1000words.jpg)
AND NOW I HAVE THIS MONSTER OF A TV!!!!!!!!!!! (http://wheresdezzer.googlepages.com/entcent.jpg)
My dad suggested it be moved since nobody really ever watches the living room TV. I think the reason is that my TV was the worst functional TV we have, and usually the TV that fits that description goes out on the back deck. So my dad wanted it out there.
Wshaaaaaawowwwwww............... This crisp, not-staticy display is blowing me away... I always had flecks of badness because I had to put the console's AV cables in a VCR 'cause that old box I used to use was so ancient it only had an RF switch port...
Also, my mom got a new computer chair, so I can have hers (which isn't much to look at, but is very comfortable) as a replacement for my broken one.
ALSO, my parents have woken up to the technology of Earth and bought a set of rechargeable batteries. Now I won't have to go on a frantic search when my Wiimote starts dying.

I'm happy because I learned about Freddi Washington...and I've mended all ties with my brothers. Freddi was fabulous and my brother is himself. Annoying but I love him.

Cool TV...but mine's bigger. :D Actually, mine is the one we watch movies on (we seriously don't watch TV in my home) and play games on, so it's in me and my sisters room in our new house.

It's hard to play horn when your lips are quivering and you can't see your sheet music through the tears in your eyes.

Tonight was my final public performance with people I've been performing with for the past 6 or 7 years. Though I am sad I'll never perform with them again when I graduate, I'm glad I've had the opportunity to.

It didn't really take that long, I went out and bought a Pelican System Selector so I can hook up everything to my TV and switch by pressing a button. Nifty, doesn't make the screen any less clear, but I had to scratch the letters off the "VCR" tab and paint "Wii" on it... Later I'll probably do the same for a SNES tab...

The only problem is that, to raise the funds, I had to sell my PS2 and games. Even worse is the fact that I got, like, six dollars from it. But hey, at least I got a Wii.

I just read a few posts back and am too lazy to quote it...GG got a Coke? Man, all I get around here is crappy Diet Pepsi, which is basically watered-down poop. But since that's angst, here's some hopefulyness: My mom was extremely kind enough to get me a few games (namely, Red Steel and Excite Truck) for the Wii, and she also got me the GameCube version of Alien Hominid! Seriously, that game is awesome.

My HOPEFULNESS involves going to Best Buy tomorrow. My dad says that he may take me tomorrow (if not today) so I can get what I want: a Nintendo DS headset and a Wii Classic controller (because Best Buy always seems to have a stock of Wii controllers, peripherals, and accessories). I will also be buying some Wii Points (around 1000 or 1500) to download Star Fox 64 or something else with. I'll use the DS headset for talking while battling via Wi-Fi in Pokémon Diamond (an awesome new feature) and chatting before a Wi-Fi match in Metroid Prime Hunters. The Classic controller will be used to play The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Star Fox 64 (once I download it), Super Mario World (once I download it eventually), and any other SNES and up Virtual Console game. I can't wait to do all this.
I am also finally done with the OAT tests. OAT stands for "Ohio Achievement Test," and I had to take four very long (forty-four questions, about seven of them had short answer/extended response questions), boring, and very time-consuming tests (Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies in that order). The only one I really had trouble with was the Reading, as the reading in it took a little thought and time and English/Literature isn't my strongest subject (my strongest subject is Math/Algebra). However, after this homework-less week (thank goodness), I'm just glad that it's all over, even though I have to get my Algebra 1 project done this weekend. With the HOPEFULNESS, this has been Mr. Melee (a space in the name now, if you haven't noticed).

Were those questions intended to be read and graded by people? I bet that gets expensive for the state. Tennessee's standardized tests (TCAP, or Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program, which goes from 1-8th grade) didn't have such a thing.

BirdPerson: That was my intent. You can't get anything but a 2000 Wii Points Card, not a 1000 or 1500 (I think it's different in Japan). I will be purchasing those points via parent credit card (with approval, of course. I'm no, say, pirate or anything! >:D).

Chupperson: Perhaps you are right. I may wait on the points until I am truly ready to purchase and play another Virtual Console game (I plan to finish Ocarina of Time and perhaps the original Legend of Zelda first, which could take a great effort over the course of the summer.)

I think Wii Points, Microsoft Points and whatever points system the PS3 uses are all crap. It's like spending money on tickets to buy stuff at the carnival; you always walk home with ten-some unused tickets because you spent $20 on 40 tickets and everything costs 30 tickets anyway. It's a scam.

There I go again, being ansgty in the hopeful thread. Well, I'm happy to report that I aced a fairly big history test at my school.
Title: Re: The HOPEFUL thread: Be happy here!
Post by: Lizard Dude on May 04, 2007, 11:58:25 AM
You are quite correct that is scammy. Microsoft is the worst with points that don't even directly match up with real world currency.

The only benefit to this system that I can see is parents being able to put points in their kid's account which he can then spend on whatever he likes at any random time, and not having to drag his parent out of bed or steal the credit card or need to buy something while the parents are at work.

The difference, Glorb, being that you can use the points later... and the games and channels on which you use the points are unlikely to break five minutes after use as opposed to carnival toys.

So the state bowling event was yesterday. I didn't make it to the finals as could be expected, but I did fairly well. I font even believe my scores so I'll just show you the paper (http://wheresdezzer.googlepages.com/w00000000000000t.JPG) I got...
We intended to come straight home but went to the Macaroni Grill (lobster-stuffed ravioli whee) and stayed at my aunts' place for the night. I don't think I've ever mentioned that if I end up going to Berkely, I'll live there for the duration. I was pleased to learn that there is a Wi-fi access point there, but I'd need to know the WEP key to use it (I COULD have used IRCDS to get into #tmk, but since it was locked...). It's just a good thing to know in advance; I won't have to buy a USB adapter.

I saw Spiderman 3 today in theaters. If you need an indication as to how much I enjoyed this movie, look no further than the title of the thread itself.

Saying that Spiderman 3 was the best I've seen in a long time would be an understatement. This movie is just sweet. The action was 10X the action of the other two and the actors stepped it up a few notches to make this a truely enjoyable experiance.

I want to see that movie! I saw the first two. I enjoyed them. The preview for this seemed interesting enough. But I want to go see Shrek the Third. And Pirates of the Caribbean 3. That should be awesome. Man, movies go in threes for me. I loved all 3 X-Men movies. Now I hope I'll love the third additions to these!

I wasn't a huge fan of Spider-man 3. It was a great movie, don't get me wrong. Lots of cool, jumpy parts. However, the part in the middle where he goes all emo and dances randomly in the street is just retarded and sank the overall excellence of the movie by a ton. Also they should have gone deeper into the weird alien thing from outer space that turned him into Venom.

Spider Man 3 in my opinion was about the best one in the series I personally love the whole 70s thing that Peter was given through the "what-ever-you-call-it" from outer-space. It became a bit odd to see Harry die though.

Hey kids, do you realize that the Spider-Man movies are in a different universe than the Amazing Spider-Man comics? Do you realize that this means that Gwen Stacy doesn't have to die and Venom doesn't have to say "we"? Do you realize that critiquing stories based on versions of that story in other media merely because the story is different is an argument with no validity?

Sure, an argument like "It is cooler when Venom says 'we'," is okay, but the mere difference of facts is not a fault in and of itself.

P.S. One of my favorite series right now is Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane, wherein Gwen Stacy is quite alive and well! :D

BREAKING NEWS!!!11!!one!1

The teacher has chosen a few of us in the class to participate in a something called the "Gauss Math Contest". Guess who was one of the people to get chosen?

That's right, yours truely.

Isn't it cool? It's on the 16th of May. I can also use it to help me get into Colledges and Universities. I've learned a little bit about it, and it has about three pages; an easy side (anyone should know the answers), normal side (anyone in grade 8 should know the answers) and advanced (stuff we haven't learned yet in that we're supposed to learn in grade 9 & 10). So, I have a question to everyone that's passed grade 9 & 10; what kind of math concepts did you learn? I prefer that you are Canadian, since I've heard that America still uses the Imperial system (sometimes). I need as much help as I can get.

Thanks for the help! I appreciate it.

I don't think you can tell me what I can or can't write on the boards (unless it's offensive). That's like me going to the Pokemon topic and telling everyone to stop just because I don't like Pokemon.

Besides, it's kinda pointless to make a topic that a grand total of three people will go to.

The problem is here, Vid doesn't like wrestling. You apparently can't talk about it because it's difficult for him to ignore. But that's Vid's problem, not yours, PaperLuigi. If wrestling makes you happy, that's what the topic is for, just like Spiderman makes some people happy.

So, because I got 3/4 of the major projects done, the rest of the school year will be cakewalk. And, it all leads up to the final awards ceremony and the school's version of American Idol (which should be cinch to win with my awesome singing friend.)

I just finished writing up my feelings on Odin Sphere for another forum, and since the game is that great I thought I'd share my feelings of it with you guys here as well. I know Lizard Dude plans on purchasing this game, and I hope some of you guys will do that as well. Since I don't particularly want to make a new topic for this, since it would most likely result in no replies, I'll pop it in here under the guise of hoping you guys buy it. It's probably not the most well written post, but I think it will serve its purpose.

I picked up Odin Sphere yesterday and I can attest that this game is amazing.

Odin Sphere delivers in every aspect: Art direction/Graphics, music, game play, simplicity + complexity, and voice acting. I'm in love with this game, and surely I can only imagine Valkyrie Profile topping it as my favorite, and I haven't even completed it yet.

The art is wonderful. Certainly the biggest draw, and what would cause many people to buy it in the first place. Amazingly well animated, and with painstaking detail. You can see the devotion of the animators, as there are specific animations used only in the cutscenes maybe used only once or twice in the game. That's the kind of detail that shows a developer really cares about making a quality game.

The music, composed by Hitoshi Sakimoto, is absolutely amazing. It's truly Sakimoto at his best and he's put out some absolutely wonderful soundtracks.  He's renowned enough to where I don't really need to say much more about that.

The game play is also great. It's been akin to a brawler or fighting game, and that's certainly true. It's very simplistic in execution, tap Square to combo, jump and tap Square to air combo, and jump twice and hit down and Square to do a downward attack. It's very simple, but battles require more than just tapping Square. When you're in a jam, you can plant seeds which can result in various results. For example, after collecting Phozons (Which appear from downed enemies) a seed can grow into a plant which blossoms into fruit, which you can then use to restore your HP. There's a variety of different plants and seeds, each with their own draw backs and benefits.

The complexity of the game comes from the EXP system and the Alchemy system. You can gain EXP for your weapon, called a Psypher, by absorbing the Phozons that drop from enemies. Collecting these Phozons increases your weapon's Exp as well as fills a gauge that allows you to use various skills and magic. The other form of Exp is for your HP, which you gain by eating various fruit. Each fruit can restore a certain amount of HP, and results in a certain amount of Exp. This is where choosing what seeds to plant becomes important. Do you want high restorative fruit with low Exp, or lower restoration yielding a higher Exp return?

The Alchemy system is in place to allow you to create items from using a catalyst called "Material." Each Material bottle has a number associated with it. Depending on the number of the Material you use, combining it with another item will result in a new item as well as more Phozons. The higher the number of your Material, the higher the Phozon count will be.

And finally, the voice acting. I've only listened to the Japanese cast as of now, but it's amazing. Every character is voiced, even NPCs you find as you walk around. There are very familiar voice actors and actresses for those who are well versed in Anime. The quality is just stunning. I've also read that the English cast do a good job as well, but I cannot personally attest to that yet.

This turned out to be more of a preview of the game than what I intended, but really it's just more of me gushing over this game. It's really amazing, and I implore any of you who enjoy quality games to pick this up. It also helps if you're acquainted with Princess Crown, as it's plays similarly to that. And if you're not, pick it up (http://"http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-71-9f-49-en-15-Princess%2BCrown-70-1s0m.html") for your PSP for it, too, is a great game.

Honestly, I can't say enough good things about this game. It's just that great.

In these looong harrd weeks, I saw Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (pwnsome), got a used WaveBird for $18, which works and looks like new now that I've cleaned it up (if only I could fix the broken one), my mom got a new printer so if I can find the setup programs online for her old one it's all mine (scanner!), and... that's about all.

I may be getting a DS soon.  My friend says he'll either sell or give his DS to me once he gets a DS lite.  Now, it's a great used DS, the only flaw is that the L button doesn't work that great.  But, considering a lot of the games usually depend on the stylus, that shouldn't be a huge problem, though I can't throw to the L receiver in Madden anymore.

I wish I had a PS2 (and Guitar Hero, of course.) I don't want to wait until this fall to get III for Wii. Oh well, I'm just HOPEFUL because Guitar Hero's finally coming out for a Nintendo system.
I'm also HOPEFUL because the end of the school year is approaching! Maybe Vid's not feeling good about it, but I know most of everyone must be. Not only does the end of the school year mean no school or work and lots of Nintendo and computer, it also means that I can try and find a summer job. Right now, minimum wage here is $6.85, and I figure because I'm not 16 or older, I will work part-time (20 hours.) Do the math and this comes to $137 every 5-day week. Also, some places could offer more, because that's only the minimum I can get payed. Currently, I have a list of nine places I would like to work at:
Best Buy
Kroger
Meijer
Target
2 local ice cream/hot dog places
McDonald's
Burger King
Subway
My plan is to get a work permit from my school's administrator (piece of cake). Once I have that, I make copies of it and fill out applications for each of the above places. Lastly, I just wait and see which place(s) except(s) my application. With the money I figure I can earn, I'll have the new guitar amp I want in one month. :D

Despite all this stuff (http://themushroomkingdom.net/board/index.php?topic=9323.msg471669#msg471669), I'm mostly hopeful.
School's out after Friday and I'll have about two weeks to myself before I start babysitting like last summer (hopefully Alex has matured a bit, I'm not worried about his buddy Ethan at all, and Abby's generally well-behaved...). I'm going it alone this year, so I'll not have to split the money with my sister. Getting half wasn't even fair, since I was alone most of the time, but I'm too darned easygoing to protest... this year will be a lot less brutal, since instead of just the Nintendo 64, with the limited game selection (I didn't have a lot of money when I was 7), the few controllers and even fewer that worked... Wii can play. I have a feeling it'll be mostly Bowling and Super Smash Bros. Melee but I'm good with that.

I'm happyish because I found an old tape of the stoopidest TV show in the last twenty years, Sonic Underground. The show was insanely dumb, and the tape itself is in terrible shape, but the rad theme song makes up for it. I'm reasonably certain that song was written by a mullet.

I seem to be getting much better at Photoshop. Old works of mine took a long time and looked horrible and recent ones don't take long and look decent. Just something that's on my mind right now since I just did a quick Photoshop project that looks better than I envisioned...
No more school (till next year), I got a Brain Age of 20 today, Planet Puzzle League is worth my money and I'll go buy it soon, my dad's promised to really teach me to drive this summer, the news about Super Smash Bros.

Afterwards, we went into town, had Taco Bell, went into GameStop (where I bought a used copy of Scurge: Hive, which isn't too bad), and went into Wal*Mart to try to replace my brother's MP3 player (their policy is really stupid, so we couldn't).

Good thing to because I think I'm starting to find a certain girl at school attractive, which is totally weird because I haven't had a crush since like Elementary and stuff and back then I was into like Power Rangers and Pokemon. OH WAIT, I STILL AM.

Also, to continue the theme of Video Game related hopefulness, I now have Street Fighter Alpha Anthology. As fun as it is, I'm still clueless on performing combos so I'm still relying heavily on mashing random buttons. Oh, and they decheapafied E. Honda in Street Fighter Alpha 3, so I can no longer use the Hundred Hand Slap for instant KOs. So I had to go through different fighters to find a good match. I sucked with everyone except for Karin and Cammy, so I think I'm going to stick with Cammy because Karin has some pretty terrible moves.

Oh no.. does that mean it's like Mario Party 7, where there are six or so bonuses that can be handed out, but the game randomly picks 3, and it's got stupid ones like most red spaces?

Bah! I was hopeful for this game.. but now I must have angst, even though I don't own a copy yet..

Man, I live off of the bonuses, usually.  Coin Star is usually won by yours truly, as well as Mini Game Star.

I'm very HOPEFUL because I believe I am getting a cell phone next week. The cell phone in question is a Virgin Mobile Slice phone with, of course, Virgin Mobile supplying the service (Link. (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp;jsessionid=JABFPP05GZP3HKC4D3EFAFQ?skuId=8005259&type=product&productCategoryId=pcmcat1200050009&id=1158321855072))
I really love this phone, even though it does not have a camera (web browsing instead, but I'd rather have the camera due to the extremely high-priced browsing fees) or folds. I'll be going with the pay-as-you-go plan, as I cannot afford the monthly charges nor do I think I'll be using my phone that much. I'm really looking forward to it. /me continues gazing at pictures of the Slice

Congrats Melee Man!

I want a Sidekick ID...because I would be texting more than actually talking. I'm a loner who doesn't talk on the phone much and the people she does talk to she gets roaming fees for talking to. :D Yeah, the people I talk on the phone to don't really live close by.

On the hopeful side:

I LOVE HAVING A BACKYARD!!!
Title: Re: The HOPEFUL thread: Be happy here!
Post by: BP on June 12, 2007, 01:44:07 AM
Ha ha ha ha ha. My backyard is not only dead, but deadly. It's never watered: my dad always says he plans to make it into a patio but it never happens... he's got other home improvement priorities, always. Why deadly? Other than it being the location of the tree in which the Satanic Mockingbirds from Hell live (haven't heard from them in a while, one was successfully killed but there are more), it's right next to the garage and often has rusty nails or metal shavings in both the rusty and not rusty varieties. That garage is really just where my dad makes stuff and stores worthless things in boxes... And if you don't step on a man-made death thing you'll step on a sticker.
Solution: I don't walk around in my backyard without footwear. :D

Some hopefulness from yours truly: So far summer vacation is going well for me! I stayed up till 3:30 last... morning as a bet-like thing with Sapphira and woke up at 12:47 as a result. There was no breakfast to be found so I toasted a leftover waffle and made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches out of it. Then I ate a leftover burger a couple of hours later. Then some leftover Thai food. Then I went out and got Planet Puzzle League. Someone please get it so I can have a WFC opponent I know... er, more than the random opponents.
I was hoping to get a used copy of Fire Red so that I'd have another GBA Pokemans so I could get some Pokemans off my Ruby cart and enjoy some new games, but GameStop has never failed to fail me.

That's nothin'. My room is a swirling tempest of horror and filth, growing more and more uninhabitable (to other people) with each day. It's gotten to the point where I try to organize the filth rather than clean it. In one corner is a stack of old broken electronics (my Game Gear, my old laptop, assorted disks, floppy and compact, and various pieces of internal hardware from some old computer). In another is a bunch of boxes with all my magazines, and everything else is scattered all over my floor. I also have a disturbing tendency to get a disposable cup, drink from it and toss it somewhere in my room, which my parents hate.

I became a mod for the first time today on a forum called the "Raw Fan Nation" (wrestling forum, btw). It feels pretty good; I was chosen over all the other members of the site (about 200; it's only been around for a few months). Now I can stay and watch it grow like the mods and admins here did for the Fungi Forums when it first came around in 2000.

I'd like to have people like Mr. Wiggles and Jman join the board; it's small, but it'll get bigger if we draw in more members (I know, Captain Obvious over here).

I'm really HOPEFUL because this Saturday, I am traveling to the best place on the Earth, Best Buy, to get a new cell phone and Dragonforce's new album! The phone I'll be getting will be a pay-as-you-go Virgin Mobile Slice. It's a really cool-looking phone, even though i does not folds nor does it have a camera. However, I'll probably be getting the $0.18 a minute plan, and text messages are only $0.05 each. Well, actually, I'm still considering getting the VM Cyclops, which has a camera, but I think I'm pretty much set on the Slice. And, also mentioned, I will be picking up Dragonforce's new album after having heard Operation Ground and Pound and Through the Fire and Flames. They sound very interesting, what with their video game noise-sounding guitars, extremely fast riffs (Kirk Hammett has called their guitarists the fastest he's ever seen), and overall style (a somewhat dark verse that then bursts into a triumphant and victorious chorus). Even though it's Summer Break, I want this week to be over!

Then again the only DVD set I've actually bought is American Dad season 1 and that's because of lucky circumstances when we first dropped of my sister at college.

I've had a few problems with Best Buy, but I keep going back there.  I guess I'm just a HOPEFUL person.  My local Circuit City almost never has what I'm looking for and the kids that work there know less than the ones at Best Buy.  I like how Best Buy will check the back though.  Overall, Target is my favorite "electronics" store.  You should try going to one of these stores wearing the appropriate colored polo shirt and asking people if they need any help.

So...I will tell about the superhero I made: Farm Man! Best thing I've ever came up with EVER. XD Here's a summary about the adventures of Farm Man:

Captain Cutworm is raging havoc at the farmer's market! Alien potatoes are taking over the earth! Sounds like a job for...

FARM MAN!!!

Faster than a speeding hog!

More powerful than an angry bull!

And able to leap tall barns without ripping his overalls!

With superpowers he acquired from a radioactive tomato, the ever-reliable FarmMobile(a rocket-powered tractor) and his trusty sidekick, Corn Lad, Farm Man makes the world safe for farmers and businessmen alike. But his nemisis, Captain Cutworm, will stop at nothing to bring the super farmer down...

Yeah, I'm pretty much a geek. I got my Summer reading list today, which I see is good news.
We have to read three of the following books.

Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury
The Chosen - Chaim Potok
Life of Pi - Yann Martel
A Raisin in the Sun - Lorraine Hansberry
I Capture the Castle - Dodie Smith
Catcher in the Rye - J.D. Salinger

I'll probably read Fahrenheit 451, and Catcher in the Rye-- if I can, as I've already read it twice. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Oh, and in more hopeful news, I only owe my grandmother $90. :D

I know. I think I should go see a shrink or something. I'm sure liking girls is probably some sort of chemical imbalance in my head that'll make me do crazy things, like talk to them, or share interests with them. Maybe I'll even lose half my freedom to spend my life with one. Won't that be crazy?

Hmm. BP should get "Objection!" as his CT...

I just came back from the movie theater an hour ago. I got to see Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. Best...one...yet. And by yet I mean there has to be a 4th by the way it ended. Also, if you just looked at the spoiler to the right thinking it was a joke but saw something you didn't want to see/know, then stop overusing the spoiler tag. Incredible plot, amazing action, stunning visuals, deep insight into characters, and truly great acting/dialogue/etc. A must see for anyone who loves those things. In my hardcore and honest opinion, I'd rate it a 4.5 out of 5 stars. I'd also recommend using the bathroom before going to see it, as it runs about 2 hours and 35 min. in length. Go easy on that slushie.

Ooh, a peanut!

Heh. Yeah. I've seen it and it was pretty neat. It'd probably help if I've seen the first two though. I'll have to see if I can rent them. I did manage to get through the whole thing too...unlike my boyfriend and his dad. I had a medium pink lemonade and some cotten candy.

Speaking of movies, my boyfriend and I will be seeing the Simpsons movie next. I hope it's good.

Maybe if you beg for one, you'll never get a CT! And on the topic about Pirates, I really liked this one, but it wasn't too good to match up with Dead Man's Chest, this one missed that wierd, adventury feeling, it needed a bit more action in my opinion.

Graduation was wonderful. Besides the fact that my middle school was one of the schools that didn't have a cap and gown graduation, we dressed up and practiced our marching out. It was fun. There were 4 different classes of 8th graders. Yep, that's how we do it in Independent Study. I thought I was going out of town (sorry, I can't say hi to your parents BirdPerson) so I didn't get to write a speech cause the programs were already printed by the time I knew I wasn't going out of town..

So most people know about the SAT, the test people take and send to colleges when they apply.  Well, I usually had pretty good scores on the PSATs, or practice versions.  Then when I took it for real the first time, my scores weren't so good; OK, not great.  610, 600, 540... Then I took it again in June, and I got the results and I did way better!  Thank gosh! 700, 680, 740!  While I msust admit that the SAT isn't particularly vital, I'm still happy about it.

Having come to the conclusion that Pichu exists just to be the weakest character, the one with which you can shame people by beating them with him, I agree with Vid, except Dr. Mario needs to be an alternate costume for Mario with identical stats but stylized moves (I've said this before). I was hoping this week would be Old Character Revelation Week but it looks like Zelda week (Where's Ness?? Please don't dump him for Lucas, just keep Ness and add Mother 3 characters to go with him)... The music is really good but that doesn't change the fact that it could be a lot better if it were orchestra again instead of cheap MIDI, but I'll be overly optimistic and hope that the synthesized music on the site is just a placeholder for real orchestrated goodness.

And that, Bird Person, is exactly what I was thinking. One of my favorite things about Melee was the absence of MIDI.

Goodbye Suffix! Have fun in Hawaii (I was there in 1994...but I don't remember crap, of course!)

Zelda...I can't get over it...and she looks absolutely gorgeous, too.

If Peach makes a comeback (please Nintendo!), I am wondering what changes they'll make to her Melee appearance. Hmmm...

I still want to know if Sonic is gonna be in it.

I thought Sakurai has already stated a lot of times that the music will be orchestrated and not synthesized.

It would be the answer to all the fans who wanted to see Mario and Sonic square off.

She's not a blonde anymore.
She wasn't blonde in Twilight Princess.

If Sonic's ever going to be in Brawl, then I think the Doom Marine should be in there too. Seriously! I mean, he'd have a pretty low jump height, but compensate with his firepower. Maybe one of his specials would be the BFG...oh, dang, that would rock. And Microsoft has gone on the record as saying they respect Nintendo a great deal, so Master Chief would be great too, especially if he uses plasma grenades and maybe the Warthog...

I find it weird how people use "MIDI" for "any kind of sequenced or sampled music". 'Cause... not all sequenced/sampled music is MIDI.
P.S. Sonic isn't in the game!

Yes, but if he is, then Chief had better be there too, or I'm boycotting all of Nintendo's products and living as a hermit.

Glorb, no character in Brawl will have firearms or any stuff like that as moves, Samus is an exeption, but not even SS will have gun related moves (Not many, I believe) I wonder If Peach will return for Brawl too, or will she be replaced by Zamus?

P.S. Sonic isn't in the game!

How do you know? Why do you feel so sure?

No duh. We're just hoping he will be.

Ah, yes.  And YouTube would get bombarded w/ even more Mario Vs. Sonic videos.  :/   But I'd still like to see Sonic in it.

I wouldn't know since I haven't played Twilight Princess, Sir.

And I was indicating the change in hair color from her Melee version.

What about Solid Snake? He'll have, like, C4 or silenced pistols or whatever, right? Right?

While Snake is a master in close quarters combat, I believe the makers of Super Smash Bros. have stated that Snake will be using missiles and stuff. Of course, I think I remember hearing that he will not be using any guns. C4 is a possibility, however.

Missiles? You're telling me lethal explosives are used by a stealth operative, but not even a knife? Madness, it is!
