PC's Latin Project is finished!
"Pygmalion is a legendary figure found in Ovid's Metamorphoses. Pygmalion is a sculptor who falls in love with a statue he has made.
Pygmalion was a Cypriot sculptor who carved a woman out of ivory. Some versions state that it was an image of Aphrodite. According to Ovid, after seeing the Propoetides prostituting themselves, he is 'not interested in women', but his statue is so realistic that he falls in love with it. He offers the statue presents and eventually prays to Aphrodite. She takes pity on him and brings the statue to life. They marry and have a son, Paphos."
Thats basically the story.
And we made a puppet show.
and its pretty awesome. lol.

Harry Potter Fans, Rejoice (or Mourn)!
TL here with an update for all the HP lovers! During an appearance at Carnegie Hall, J.K. Rowling has announced that the rumors of Dumbledore being homosexual are true. She then explained that Dumbledore was smitten with rival Gellert Grindelwald, whom he defeated long ago in a battle between good and bad wizards. "Falling in love can blind us to an extent," Rowling said of Dumbledore's feelings, adding that Dumbledore was "horribly, terribly let down."

Enneagram Test Results
Your variant is self pres
"Average 6s place safety and trust above all else, making them among the most loyal of the Enneagram personalities. Of course, each type's greatest strength is also their greatest weakness, and the 6s capacity for loyalty can be devastating if they put their faith into something malicious or unreliable. A 6 that has been "burned" by someone they trusted can become permanently wary of others, or of their own judgment. They may react strongly to this betrayal, either retreating into fear or lashing out. 6s often seek safety in groups of like-minded, trustworthy people, and among them they can be fun-loving, playful, and very good company. But outside of such a protective environment, 6s feel less secure and more exposed, and more beholden to their fears.
The average 6 is a somewhat difficult type for many other types to understand. The 6's thoughts can range widely, often in strongly self-contradictory ways, which can lead to problems with indecision and doubt. They simultaneously like people and fear the power others have over them. They value trust, but are afraid of putting their trust into someone that will hurt them. They would like a strong authority to make them feel safe, but often question the competence of these same authorities. 6s often develop good "bull-shit detectors" because of their lifelong habit of reading between the lines of what people say. Because 6s are both analytical and people-oriented, they may have very good insights into the motivations of others. Despite their mental acuity, 6 are fearful about taking action on their own, and work better in teams where a common goal and safety in numbers makes the 6 feel protected. Although 6s do not usually consider themselves natural leaders, they can in fact be brilliant leaders when faced with an external threat or enemy (even if the "enemy" is just a looming deadline).
6s are extremely loyal to those they trust, and may fight for them more strongly than they would for themselves. Like the 2, who also orients their lives toward others, 6s can be unusually self-sacrificing, perhaps even more so because they are unlikely to have the 2's confusion between helpfulness and self-aggrandizement.

Happy Birthday Pocky!
I got you some Cake Pocky:
And if anyone can find a better (ie: anime) Pocky pic for Prince Pockstar, please present it!
I do believe you are 21 today, so forget the site for today. I'll keep an eye on her. Live it up! This is an excellent birthday.
*Cheers and ruckus*
BTW: Searching for "Pocky Cake" on Google surprisingly did not turn up any good results, but there was a site with a neat idea for a Halloween treet cake using pocky.
Happy birthday wishes go here. v
*EDIT* This is PC. I have a birthday card for Pocky and didn't feel like making a new post.
Also this birthday card is from ShadyCrow. (Ikkou)
Edit (Kip): Yes, and...
Happy birthday wishes still go here. v

PC and Friends
Ani-Battle: TL VS Mudpelt result
Hit play below to see who won!
W-100, the New watch phone from Hyundai
Made by Hyundai (Chinese), the W-100 is, as you can see, a phone that you can "wear" and which does not only feature a 1.3Mpix camera, but ALSO a touch screen, and Bluetooth! The other great news is that this phone (GSM) is available in English (as well as Chinese), and can be used as an Mp3 player (Mp3 files on MicroSD) as well as a video player! Pretty cool, isn't it ?
Pocky: I had a Casio Wrist camera back in like 2000, this thing makes it look like nothing!

Tibetian Sand Art: A Painstaiking Beauty
Just so you know, Pocky made me post this.
What you see at the right is a special kind of Tibetan art called a sand mandala.
That's what the sand art is. It's nothing everlasting, the monks will work on it for several days and clean it up. They tend to give some sand as a gift to those who helped them in preparing for their creation, and usually, the extra sand will be spilled into local waterways, in an effort to spread the peace and love that went in to the creation. It is a very awe inspiring moment to see these monks working, and you are very fortunate if you ever get a chance to see them in the process.
I have a special interest in religion and its customs, and I recently had the chance to visit the Tibetan monks from the Drepung Loseling monastery as they were working on one of their mandalas. I even tried my hand at working on a small one they had set up for visitors. As the monks work in near silence, nearby monks will chant and throat sing as the mandala is created.
At the exhibit a few of the monks were selling crafts and instruments to benefit their monastery. That is when Kip encountered:
The Forbidden Cell Phone Charm
Funny story actually. I didn't have a lot of money, but I wanted to support the monks since they came all the way from Tibet to make their art for us locals. So I bought a $3 cell phone charm (see picture). The charm has some significance in the Tibetan culture, so when I asked the monk at the table about it, he politely took the charm and my cell and had it looped through.
Before this I had a Claddagh charm on it, but it had since broken off. So I happily used my new charm for a while. That's when I noticed my phone wouldn't take incoming calls anymore. I could call out, but I couldn't answer calls coming in. So I called Sprint to see if they could fix my phone. They offered to replace my broken old phone with a new RAZR, as long as I send them back my old one. Woo hoo!
So I removed the charm in anticipation of my new phone, and, wouldn't you know it, it works again and I'm getting calls! Coincidence? I put the charm back on a couple of hours ago, but I haven't gotten a call yet to see if it's working. So, will I have to give Sprint my charm too if it means my phone will still be broken enough for me to get a RAZR?
Well, the monks have since spilled the sand in the bay and gone home, so I can't ask them about the mystical properties of my charm, but I did get the opportunity to help sponsor a monk student through their first year of monastery. I am now working with my college so that we can help some of the monks with their tuition needed to become a full-fledged monk at Drepung Loseling.
All in all, the treat of seeing the Tibetan monks here is an experience I will not soon forget.

How Pure Are You?
Found this a while ago and decided to post it at 1 past midnight. It's called the Purity Test. Gauges how much of a sleaze you are by things you've done/fantasized about doing.
TL got a 34.5% on the 200 questions! ;P see if you can get lower.
NOTE!! Might not be appropriate for small children, which I really dont think applies to anyone on the site, but disclaiming anyway. XP If ppls complain, I'll depost it, so just say so in the comments. Or if you honestly take the test, tell us your results!

((The first person to get the end poem right gets a treat))
Thank you TL. PC and I talked it over. You do win and will get your prize. It will take a while but don't worry, you'll love it.
Well, it's a day late, but I have the members page up for you all! :3
I can't make any different colors from last month 'cause meh period 3 class only has Macs and Macs are evil, seeing as they don' t want blogger to have color.
You should have seen how long it took me to figure out how to open a window and do actual things! ;_;
Only good thing I can say is that the keyboard is mighty quiet, 'cept for the backspace (I'mma T.A. and the class is really, really quiet right now <_< >_>).
Anyway, I managed to get this picture on here (thank god)! :D
Enjoy, I'll change colors later, and give me a job by dropping quotes!
Andand, remember: Mac = Root of all evil.
