The full-length Episode III trailer is coming soon!
Ed was fun today. Monday's have 2 teaching episodes where students teach whatever they want. Today, a student taught us about nouns, verbs, and adjectives. After we're done we discuss it. Now, whenever someone teaches anything that's shop, art, sometimes music, and sometimes literature, Dr. Curtiss has to ask "Why do we need to learn this?" or "Who cares?" and even though he says he's trying to encourage discussion, it's rather obvious that he has little appreciation for these subjects.
Anyway, somehow we got to the topic of teaching English in every class and the row of shop kids in the back thought that they shouldn't have to assign papers in shop. Makes sense, people learn by doing. He did not like this idea. We spent a long time discussing whether shop teachers should assign writing exercises. Dr. Curtiss even said that he would not wnat those kids to be teachers if they did not assign writing in shop. After a while, people stopped caring and the discussion moved on. It was funny to hear this debate, though and it made my day.

Well I went to Gretna today. The Toy Liquidators didn't have much but there was a Goldmember action figure that tempted me, maybe next week. I went over to Toys R Us and found the DVD Trivial Pursuit for Lord of the Rings. OK LOTR fans, now go get it! They had a super-posable Boba Fett (which the "vintage" style figures are leaving the racks very quicky being replaced by sneak previews). I'm still looking for Darth Vader and a Stormtrooper. I think the Episode III Vader may be a repack though. If you see any, let me know. I went over to Barnes and Noble. Their website had America (the book) listed for $15, but I saw no notice that this was reduced from $25 anywhere, so I hestiated.
Other than that, I'm done. I can't wait to get back to my stress-filled week next week. Let's see: Government test questions I want to know by Monday, FCS article review on Thursday, 3 readings due for Psych on Thursday, Email thingy for SPED due Tuesday, Sped article review on Thursday. Plus tests on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Yippey!
Also, I have one free song to iTunes. What should I download?

OK, the weirdest thing just happened. I'm going to try to censor myself because I don't want to potentially embarrass anyone. I got an IM from a guy in my high school graduating class tonight asking if I liked his display picture (supposedly of his penis) and said if I wanted to go out. I told him that I'm not interested and he said to email him if I change my mind. OK, I'm trying to censor myself because I have the suspicion that this was either someone else on his name or he was inebriated, which is an unnecessarily fancy word for drunk or was high, cracked up, doped up, etc. I did check with Claire to see if I have the right email and I do so now I'm confused. This kid is not by any means gay and my user name is not that ambiguous. So I'll just leave it at that.

I'm so excited! I start my field experience tomorrow for professional education! I'm going to Wayne High and sit in on the social studies class from 1-3pm. My schedule is going to be so busy on Tuesdays and Thursdays now. I have Psych at 9:30-10:45, FCS at 11-12:15, lunch, FieldEx from 1-3, Sped from 3:30-4:45, (then I have Sci-Fi from 5-5:30 on Tuesdays)! Oh well, it will be worth it. I'll also be there from 1:00 to the end of the day on Fridays. So I'm looking at around 6 hours per week and I need 25 hours to pass ProfEd.
My teacher is so cool, too. He basically said I can do whatever I want when I'm there. I could go to the middle school, go to another class, possibly see my old RA Tony, or even wander the halls for two hours if I want. But that would suck. I'm considering going in some MWF from 10-11am-ish because I saw distance learning classes from Mead on the schedule with Mr. Rutt and Jenny Kocian, hehe.
There was a reason why it took me 2 months to put up site news, because whenever I done, something new gets in my head.
First: New Online Status
I finally got around to removing the white pixel shadow around the images so I can have them where I intended, the sidebar. For some reason, the online status site wasn't working correctly and I was waiting for the code to appear so I can use my own images.
Second: Offsite Linking
Now: Category Revisions
Two new categories
- Commentary - Formerly Reviews, this will be where I throw reviews and social commentary
- Fun With Toys - Any of the pictures of inappropriately posed action figures I have posted
At the bottom of the sidebar by the Blogger button, I have posted 3 new links in the form of the ever popular 80x15 antipixel buttons. First, I have new respect for Xanga because they let me redirect from Xanga back here. Well, some people use the subscription list as a link list but once you redirect here, you can't subscribe to my Xanga...until now. The first button is the link that lets you subscribe to my Xanga, which sends you here. The second is similar to the first where you can subscribe to my site via My Yahoo! I used to use My Yahoo! but not so much anymore, but I decided to include the option. The next one is the direct link to my RSS feed. This is for any other sites that people use that support RSS feeds. It's a Blogger setting so it never hurts to include it. I also included a matching Firefox button, 'cause y'all should be using it.
Now if you like my site a lot, seek help, then feel free to use this button:
Remember, seek help. My site's not that great, but I was bored.
Well, I think that's it. I hope I don't have to do another of these unless I really modify the template code which, using most of these changes, shouldn't happen for a while.

It seems like I'm on a Trivial Pursuit kick, but ever since I found the Episode I version a few years back, I've been excited for an update. Anyways, Rebelscum posted more pics of the Toy Fair that had an opened box view of the game. The categories are different colors and in a different order so intersorting is definetly out. Another thing I noticed is that the board has no Hyperspace spaces which allow you in the first game, to go to any space on the board. Oh well, I'll get used to that. I'm so excited.
Rebelscum also had an open box view of the Saga Monopoly. Unfortunately, there was no view of the Risk opened. That's the one I'm curious to see how the map is done. To see all the pics, click the title link.

- Hotmail is used in more than 220 countries and territories, more than the number recognized by the United Nations.
- If Hotmail's 190 million active accounts were citizens of a single country, it would be the world's 5th largest country, larger than Brazil (184mm), Pakistan (159mm), Russia (144mm) and Bangladesh (141mm).
- If connected hand-to-hand, the 190 million MSN Hotmail members would circle the Earth at the equator over five and a half times.
- MSN Hotmail e-mail service members number more than the combined population of the world's 20 largest cities.
- If all MSN Hotmail members were standing in single file, they would line the length of the Great Wall of China or the Nile River (the longest river in the world) over 17 times.
- In 2001 and 2003 MSN Hotmail was featured in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's largest free Web-based e-mail service provider.
- MSN Messenger recently broke a record for 16 million users simultaneously online and IM'ing with one another. That's like all of Tokyo talking to at least one person in metro Chicago!
ComingSoon! has posted some great pictures of scenes and toys. They also put up some spoilers, not as good as the others but it was still interesting.
Coming Soon! - Latest News
Also, Star Wars.com posted pictures of the Hasbro toy lineup and including an interesting oddity. One of the pictures (shown below) showed the game collecton. The Risk and Monopoly look the same, but the Trivial Pursuit is in different packaging than previously thought here. The original one had a blue tone with the stylized Vader mask. This one has more of an orange tone with a standard Vader mask and a character montage. Not anything to worry about necessarily, but interesting to note.

Well, it's finally happened. Ever since TechTV merged with G4 I had a feeling they would get screwed. After the merge, G4 dropped several TechTV shows including Call For Help and that made me sad. Then they started revamping The Screen Savers every other month. Well, today I went to The Screen Savers' site to find out they completely dropped the "TechTV" from G4TechTV. If you've ever watched the station in its golden days, it was awesome and now there's little of it left. I'm sure by summer when I'll be able to see it, The Screen Savers will have mutated into something completely different that what it used to be. Oh well, I need a life beyond TV.
The other day TheForce.Net posted the new Revenge of the Sith line of toys. They went into detail about the Trivial Pursuit Star Wars DVD version coming in April.
"TRIVIAL PURSUIT® DVD Star Wars SAGA EDITION Game
(Approximate Retail: $49.99, Recommended Age: 10 & up)
The TRIVIAL PURSUIT® DVD Star Wars Saga Edition game combines traditional game play, modern DVD technology, and questions from all six Star Wars movies in six new categories - The Cantina; The Force; Heroes, Villains & Scoundrels; The Saga; A Galaxy Far, Far Away...; and Hyperspace. With over 2,400 questions, including 600 interactive questions on two DVDs, this game is sure to appeal to every Star Wars fan. Special to this game will be up to 20 DVD questions that will feature selected Star Wars' fans acting out various scenes from the Star Wars saga."
Read about all of them here.
So they changed the categories meaning I can't intersort the questions. Unless they make them similar to the original like:
Characters = Heroes, Villians, & Scoundrels
Weapons & Vehicles = The Force
History = The Saga
Geography = A Galaxy Far, Far Away
Droids, Creatures, & Aliens = The Cantina
Wild Card = Hyperspace
One can only dream... Oh well, the official site posted up pics of decor, Sith style here. There's some of these I want, but like most toys, they won't be out until April 2 giving me a month to use them on campus.

This post is a long time coming, but I think I'm all done.
First the big update: Categories
Because the week archives are piling up, I decided to create subject categories so you can find old posts or if you want to catch up. These are listed on the right after the links.
- ACM - This is where I'll put the minutes as long as I am secretary.
- Adult Swim - This is a new category for all things Futurama, Family Guy, American Dad, etc.
- Enterprise - This is where my live reviews/facts for the episodes go and will become a Star Trek news category when the show is off the air.
- Halo - LAN results and any news on my favorite Xbox game.
- Link Blogger - This is where any miscellaneous posts will go.
- My Life Outside of College - This is where I'll put my fun stories.
- Reviews - This is where I'll post ay reviews of movies, TV, or any other social commentary.
- Star Wars - This is where I've put all my news on movies, toys, games, and anything else from a galaxy far, far away. Watch this category plummet when Episode III is on DVD unless they do make a TV Show.
- Wayne State College - This is where my class/campus related stories will be. It's been kinda empty recently because I miss my Theatre class.
- Who Am I? - This is where I'll throw my quiz and survey results.
Next thing: Online Status
Cool thing I found on forums that shows if you're online or not. The graphics I use have a white pixel shadow so I need to put them on a light background. The MSN one is tricky and the things go up and down a lot, but if you have patience, it's really cool. To get your own go to www.onlinestatus.org.
The loneliest part of my site. No one signs my guestbook, but go right ahead whether you check it every day or you just stumbled upon it. I like getting feedback.
OK: HTML Code Tester
My last link is for a HTML Code Tester I found. I don't take credit for developing this, but it is cool. If you want to see if something works, put it in and a window will open showing the results of your code.
Last One: Commenting
I didn't do this, so thanks Blogger! Comments now no longer have the choice of Anonymous or a Blogger profile. Now you can leave any name and you're site address whether it's at Blogger, Xanga, LiveJournal, or anywhere. It's all good.
Also, I sent guestbook and comment notifications to my Gmail so I'll know when you commented on anything, so even if it's an old post, feel free to comment.
Well, that's it. Two months of work in most right has paid off. I was going to change the design, but my choice had a huge text size and I'll need to figure out how to make it similar to this site's side. That's it, enjoy!

You Are A Romantic Realist
You are more romantic than 40% of the population.
You tend to be grounded when it comes to romance.
Sure, you can fall hard... but only for someone you've gotten to know.
And once you're in love, you can be a total romantic goofball...
But you'd never admit it to your friends!

This is a cool site. It shows almost every name you could think of and tells you when they were popular by decade as baby names in a fun interactive way. It has most names, but if you get a little too off the wall, it won't have it. I figured it wouldn't have my mom's name because her parents are the only ones who spell it Kellee. It requires Java, so everyone's probably got it, but if it doesn't work, go to www.java.com

Team America: World Police played in Gardner Auditorium tonight and I had to go see it. I love how you can tell certain voices are from South Park. It was a very fun thing to watch. I may have been the only one to notice on WSC that the tavern scene was a send up of the Star Wars cantina scene with similar camera shots and the same music, only backwards. I also like the retarded "Matt Damon" character.
There are three scenes that make the movie:
- Puppet Sex: The movie is so close to porn if it wasn't for the fact that it's puppets. Really screwed up, really funny.
- Large Amounts of Vomit: After leaving a bar, Gary begins to throw up, and continues to throw up, throws up some more, still throws up, and finishes it off by throwing up. Very gross, very funny.
- What Screws What?: I like to think I have standards, so I won't quote this scene here. It's all true in an abstract sort of way, and of course, it is very, very funny. If you want to know what they say, check out IMDb's quotes.
DVD-worthy: Yeah, I'll probably get it.

Yesterday was awesome. I got my email saying my order has shipped so I'm looking forward to that. I then went to Norfolk because I had a huge urge to get SimCity 4 and looked for a Darth Vader action figure and, instead, found the Sneak Preview figure of General Grievous so I got that. I also picked up some chocolate and Valentines. Unfortunately, now I must not spend money on anything for a while (I say that now and wait a week...).

Well, it's official! UPN finally cancelled Enterprise. It was so close to cancellation last year but they made it another year. I wish there is something I can do, but here we get UPN on Saturdays so we don't count toward ratings. SaveEnterprise.com is currently in Tactical Alert to try to help the show and EnterpriseFans.com is currently on bandwidth hiatus. I guess it would be good for Star Trek to take a break and work on getting back to its core. You never know, the DVD sales might help it pull a Family Guy. I know BnB were hot rocks to make a prequel movie probably dealing with the Earth-Romulan War. And then there's syndication...
I really think UPN needs to realize that it's such a crappy network. It is the network that launched Voyager so I'm not suggesting leaving necessarily, but they're always trying to compete with the other major networks who are broadcasted nationally when they need to take what they are given. It gets low ratings because it's up against major shows on major networks and they were all upset that Battlestar Galactica on Sci-Fi got better ratings.
Well, some good final episodes are coming up including the conclusion of the Romulan arc, the Klingon forehead arc, and the Mirror Universe arc, with the untitled series finale.
