Ninja!

Yeah, it`s me. Kind of.

Background story being a five day trip to the mountains where going out equals something of a freezedown unless you are properly dressed. My brother found out that being properly dressed gave one the look of a stuffed ninja, so he had me do some sneaky ninja-moves.

It`s a tid-bit on everyday-life after all.

Would you belive that the blog on TDC is blocked because of forbidden catagory "Games" at the middle school library? Yeah. I sometimes come here (sneakily-technically I'm not allowed, even though our schools are connnected, guess they think we'd terrorize the little kids or something. jeez...) to hang out or help the librarian shelve books. Our HS library STINKS! The librarian's never there and all the books are anchient and falling apart. Grr. Mad

<edit>
A bunch of other comics are blocked too:
Undertow for "Gambling"-(what the heck?)
Order of the Stick for "Games"

I really hate our school district...

Wow.
I just got this clip from my youth pastor.
I'm guessing it was a news story on CNN or something.

It's about a 12 year old girl who paints these AWESOME paintings, inspired by God she says.
I really don't know which one is my favorite, but the space one and the horse in the snow one are cool.
Her portraits are so life-like it's scary, you'd think they'd just pop out of the canvas.
She's also COMPOSING her own music, when she's been taking piano lessons for a MONTH.

Around-the-globe conflict:
Laughing
Just read in the news about the rather silly conflict between Swedish IKEA (furniture enterprise) and the Australian government. Couldn't help laughing at both sides.

1: Australian Prime Minister orders furniture for his residence to a value of about 300.000 Euros (times 1.35 = USD). Chairs for a value of 110.000 included.
2: Opposition claims that cheaper furniture could be found elsewhere.
3: Politician Don Randall says: Do you really want the Prime Minister to go to IKEA and purchase bad chairs, and assemble them at home for his guests to sit in?
4: IKEA's Australian Head Kent Nordin counters that the furniture is good enough for the Swedish court, and the Swedish Australia embassy is planning to make a large purchase too.
"We would enjoy talking to the (Australian) Prime Minister too. We can even offer assistance with the assembly if he is not certain that he can manage that part..." Wink
Laughing

Storm in a glass of water, as we say in Sweden...
(Sources: Swedish Expressen, in turn referring to Sydney Morning Herald)

Surprised Oh Noes! I'm shocked and ashamed... sorry about the petty politians!

Personally, I love IKEA! I mean, I don't have any of their chairs, but I do have 2 bookshelves, a desk and a groovy little vase ( and that's just the stuff in my bedroom...the entire family is IKEA mad!)

I had a mental image of some rich guy sitting down in his mansion trying to put together a bunch of IKEA chairs and ordering his butler to get a socket wrench... LOL!
( Embarassed I don't know what the Austrialian Prime Minister looks like, thats why Embarassed )

IKEA is so fun to just walk around in!!!
We have lots of stuff, ranging from tableware, desks, cabinet-things, 2 clear stackable chairs, bed covers, one of the drawing manequins, some awesome lamps, etc. etc. etc.

Hey, don't mind if you hack on IKEA too - most Swedes think its "low quality cheap shijte furniture that always has a bolt or nut missing and that breaks easily"... Smile

But they are damn good when you want to buy cheap batteries, energy-saving light-bulbs and electrical sockets and extension cables and stuff... of adequate quality too, lol! Laughing

Really? I've always thought IKEA stuff was super tough! Cheap is just the added bonus Razz Maybe they ship the better stuff overseas...

And for you imagination, Emma, the Australian Prime Minister has an average stature and is balding with bushy eyebrows and glasses. (he's been PM for over 10 years, so he's allowed to look a lil old Wink )

Well, the rumour may not be true. Personally, I think they're all right.
I purchased a laminated bookshelf, umm... 16 years ago for 150. It has survived three moves and is still holding up. It currently goes as [EDIT: oops, Freudian typo, lol!] liquor-cabinet as well, carrying up some hevay weight.
And I have never ever had a single thing missing - its probably people that are just clumsy and misplace stuff! Smile

I enjoy IKEA and just about everything in my room is from there (but then again I do have a part time job there). So far nothing has fallen apart and I've had no missing pieces (but if anyone ever does they can go back to the store and get it) They keep spare parts for just that.
Anyway I just need to shout out that I LOVE SUMMER CAMP!!!!
I get paid to play outside with kids, and it means that I get to sit down and read a week or two worth of pages when ever I get a chance to come home on a break Very Happy
Hope eveyone elses' summers are going well!

DOH! Over three days since anyone last wrote anything here on BtFW (hm, funny, an acronym of TFBW... never thought of THAT before... amazing what things your mind can do when you're bored!).

Ah well, I guess I'll have to find other ways to entertain myself... such as playing "Where's Kiwi?" on #450, that should be tons of fun! Very Happy

Neither had I, oddly enough. But what I really want to know is why you have elected for a floaty-haired Felicity for your most recent avatar image.

Ah, finally some LIFE here again! And even more important, a challenging question! Ah well, it all began in ancient Greece... Smile
...nah, not really.
It just happened that I was sick of the fat ugly bas... uhm, I mean salesman I had before this, and I really laughed at Felicity's expression in this picture, so I figured I'd cap it. But it didn't end up so well with so few pixels though, so I will change it again shortly.
Can't seem to find an avatar I like... or can I? *hmmmmmm*

I'm back from my last week of MMR! My cousin from NJ is here for a week and we are going to Kennywood sometime later this week! Woot! Phantom's Revenge, here I come!

My sister has her own copy of Deathly Hallows and is about halfway through it. I just ordered HBP from the library, cause I've only read it once.

I still need to see OotP though. Hopefully my local cheap theatre will have it soon...
