Make Your Own Pokemon Trainer

Happy Memorial Day everyone! Wow, I only managed to find time to make like 2 blogs this whole month x_x sorry loyal readers! I will continually try to update even if they aren't long drawn out in-depth novels.

Today, for example, I'll keep it brief: with Sarah competing with her Engineering car-making team down in Joplin, Missouri (where that huge tornado hit) and not really being able to talk to her since she left almost a week ago- I am looking forward to her coming home tonight! :D

I'm in a artistic mood, but not a drawing mood, so I'm looking for inspiration on DeviantArt. And somehow I found my way to this AWESOME WEBSITE:

Website of the Day: Trainer! This is awesome, you can make your own pokemon trainer -- which I just did! Alas, it doesn't look like they have a girls option - at least I don't see it. This is cool, I wish personally I had this pokemon trainers outfit actually. Always love black with yellow outline.

Zoomed In: Should we be seeing this?

This one'll be brief, loyal blog-followers I appologize for being so absent lately! Been super busy between CKI and campaign stuff. But here's a short blog on some image I recently noticed...

As you all know from my last blog, we killed bin Ladin! w00t! Anyway, this image has become instantly "iconic" and historic, and I noticed that they kinda released a hugely high definition gigantic version of it. So big in fact, that blogs have taken to noting all the tiny things you can learn about the situation room/situation from it. I personally think being able to read Hillary Clinton's binder is kinda cool.

For Use in White House Situation Room Only

Noforn means "No Foreign citizens" can look at it, even within the White House. Another image I found abnormally large, to the point where I could see more than the public maybe normally could see was the recent final Endeavour crew including shooting-victim Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords' husband Mark Kelley.

I usually like these images because of the space patch, I love mission patches! I even have a small collection framed on my bedroom wall. I think I've mentioned before that there are a select group I would like as gifts if you're ever looking for something to buy me. But looking at the gigantic image, I noticed in astronaut Greg H. Johnson's helmet you can see the reflection of the room the picture's being taken in.

Haha, not exactly stellar. Still, kinda cool to see behind the scenes!

Song of the Day: "Tonight Tonight" by Hot Chelle Rae. Haha, this is one of those songs I think I like the first two times I heard it on the radio, but then no one else did (Pepsi Blue much?) so they got rid of it kinda quickly. (Lipgloss, and I Fell in Love with the DJ both suffered this fate if I recall...)

Video of the Day: Jersey Shore: The RPG -- an old style NES version of Jersey Shore as an RPG game, bahahahhaha this is funny... Embedding was disabled, alas. Speaking of old style games, I think I'll try to find room for Pokemon White in my day today.

It's a Tie

(Retroactive Blogging: So I wrote this in May, and for reasons I don't remember haven't gotten around to posting it yet. So I apologize if any time sensitive topics don't make sense anymore...)

Ugh, I'm a bit on the broke side as we start Summer. Add to that my time seems to be filled with non-paid work like 24 hours a day x_x That doesn't mean I can't build my online shopping list on my blog!

Haha, so I was perusing Gizmodo as I often do and I found this "eco-friendly" (just because something isn't made of stryofoam plastic should not necessarily make it eco-friendly...) tie. Made of recycled/reclaimed wood. Apparently it's fashionable, haha, I could imagine wearing it to ASG for the interesting looks - but it seems difficult to imagine being taken seriously. I wouldn't wear it to a meeting with the Dean for example. But I dunno, always good to have options, and one day I may feel braver than today...

On the website Gizmodo recommended they were 34$. I lost the website, and to write this had to search for it again -- low and behold, I found a classier shop for fashionable people selling something similar for 300-500+$ O.O;;; whaaaa? Who would pay hundreds of dollars for a wooden tie? You can't wear it to congress, to DCON, or to- well, maybe a wedding - if you want to upstage the important people. But really? 500$?

Googling around for something interesting clothes-wise, I actually found something else that's been my "obsession of the week": Doctor Who. I recorded a couple episodes I found on BBC:America, and that show is actually pretty good. I've heard about it for years, watched an episode or two back in the day with Panda and Comic Book Guy, but it's never really kept my attention for some reason. Now -- it has. The Doctor's quite the snazzy dresser, so much so this blogger devoted his blog to recreating his on-screen suit jacket. Dang, that's dedication. Which reminds me, I need more suits.

Mission Accomplished (Part 2)

Oh jeeze, I am radically behind on studying for my Science & Technology in World History final at noon! I meant to wake up at 6am, ended up closer to 9... so I'm gonna hop in the shower, and then study non-stop.

But first - I want to say it's about time, US military forces killed Osama bin Laden this weekend. (If you somehow managed to miss that news.) I want to remind people we are not celebrating death or murder - but that death and murder of innocents does not go unpunished.

Some quotes from Twitter and elsewhere:
"It took killing Osama Bin Laden to get the news to stop playing highlights of the Royal Wedding... Thanks President Obama" - GloZell

"I see the world's longest game of hide and seek is finally over." - Amanda

Video of the Day: It's just Barack Obama weekend, isn't it! The other day was also the yearly-Correspondents Dinner, where Obama does a stand up routine making fun of himself and other political people. This year was heavily focused on Donald Trump, and it was pretty good I gotta say, lol.

Quote of the day: "Dust off the 'Mission Accomplished' banner, Mr. President!" -- College Democrats of Ohio, Facebook status.
