    Lol, it is indeed Tarja Turunen. She is, IMO, better than Nightwish's current vocalist. Their new singer just sounds too much like a pop singer IMO.

    Ah yes, the annoying strum bar of the Explorer. At least, I'm assuming it's the Explorer because you said it was white. I personally prefer the Les Paul because of better button spacing, but I have to use the Explorer now because my Les Paul's red button won't work right. Still a guitar, though.

    I'm also going to assume that they bought Guitar Hero two. That's the only one, aside from GH1, that comes with a white controller. That is, unless you play on anything other than the 360/PS2. So, which console is it for?

    Speaking of Guitar Hero, I've finally five starred every career song on Expert in GH2. The only songs that remain are Jordan, which I am 300 points away from the 5 star on, and Six, which I am 2000 away on. I will get those soon.

    And, jumping to GH3, I finally 5 starred The Way It Ends, which means I am left with Through the Fire and Flames and Raining Blood to 5 star. Might take me some time on those.

    It has been a while since we've talked. Sadly, my life has been eaten by World of Warcraft and relationship stuff, so I haven't been too active on this forum. I'll probably update at least one of my fics soon once I get the motivation to do so, so keep an eye out for that.

    Anyway, what's up with you?

    Hey, what's up? We haven't spoken for a whi- HOLY CRAP IS THAT TARJA TURUNEN?!?! You never cease to suprise me with your Finnish stuff. You're practically half Finnish, Jeff... Are you sure you aren't?

    On another note, guess which game my brothers bought with their Christmas money? A hint: it came with a strange, white, plastic guitar-like object with five different-coloured buttons and one black switch... Oh yeah. Nowdays, I wake up to the faint sound of rock and the annoyingly loud sound of the black switch being tilted down. *tack-tack-tack-tack-tack* it goes, and there's no chance of falling asleep again. Ever. The most annoying part is that ten minutes after I get up, they stop playing

    But, yeah, what's up?

    Try Swedish to English, because that's Swedish. I can understand some of it, but even though Swedish is our second official language, I'm not very fluent with it. Of course, you had no way of knowing what language that is ^-^ In the end, all the languages look very same if you don't know what it means. And if it's not written in Greek or Russian or Chinese. Of course, I can run that song by some translators myself, if you want.

    And Finntroll is indeed a Finnish band, but their lead vocalist is a finlandssvensk (that's in Swedish, there's really no good translation for that. In Finnish, they are suomenruotsalaiset), one of the Swedish-speaking Finnish people. That's why their songs are in Swedish.

    So, we Finnish people have to study Swedish in school because that's the second offical language of our nation. There are some 300 000 native Swedish-speakers here, but they're all as Finnish as I am. As a result, every city, town and village has a Swedish name as well as a Finnish one, and that goes for streets and other places as well. Even our national anthem has Swedish lyrics as well. I never really realize I live in a bilingual country because I'm so used to it. Every sign has to be in both Finnish and Swedish. But, well, many people hate the Swedish-speakin population because they generally come from a better background than Finnish-speaking ones and are also way more rich. Also, kids hate having to learn Swedish in school. I always thought it was a fairly interesting language. (Actually, we also have a third official language: the Sami language. That, however, is only spoken in Lapland, so it's not a major language here in the southern parts of this country.)

    Maybe that's enough for a cultural lesson, expecially one that you never asked for in the first place. I'm sorry for ranting about nonsense I just got on the mood and *poof*, I had written the whole thing. Anyway, if you want to know the lyrics of that song and for some reason can't get it translated, I'll help you. If you want me to translate more nonsense-lyrics of English, songs, hit me. I'm bored.
    I bet yo couldn't tell.

    This is a song performed by Finntroll, and I believe they are Finnish, but Google Translator wouldn't translate the lyrics from Finnish to English, so I am unsure. I figured I would have our community Finnish expert check it out, so here they are

    Eld brinner inn i skogen.
    Grytan rÃrs bland skuggor.
    Vilda odjur dansar omkring.
    FÃr att starta festen igen.

    Vid skymningen vi gÃ¥r fÃrsjunken i tankar.
    Ensam vid elden, brÃderna är här.
    Vakna nu Rivfader och ge oss fÃrstÃ¥nd.
    Gamla faders ord, ord så sann.

    "Fan det här ljuset och vänd dig mot bergen.
    Där månen går upp och du kommet att se.
    Sanningen så gammal, sanningen så rätt.
    GÃ¥ och ge till folket dÃd och skräck..."

    Genom dyster skogen stiger vi fram.
    Genom människoländer rider vi fram.
    Sanningen och klokhet kommer vi att se.

    Beh, a Michael Jackson song... You know, Finland is not that small xD Luckily I don't know the words for this one, well, apart from the "beat it"-part, so it still was fun. Only that I felt stupid for translating the beat it parts as bug off. I just thought it was closer to the Finnish word...

    [1st verse]
    They told him not never came here
    Don't want to see your face, you've got better disappear
    The Fire is in their eyes and their words are very lucid
    So bug off, only bug off

    [2nd verse]
    You'd better run, you'd better do what you can
    They don't want to see any blood, no be Macho Man
    If you want to be hard, better do what you can
    So Beat, but you want to be evil

    [Chorus]
    Only bug off, bug off, bug off, bug off,
    No-one wants to be the Forlorns
    Show's "How Funky strong Is there a battle
    It not is gap who's right or wrong
    Only bug off, bug off,
    Only bug off, bug off,
    Only bug off, bug off,
    Root bug off, bug off,

    [3rd verse's]
    They outside to get you, better leave when can
    Do not want to be a boy, you want to be a man?
    Do you want to stay alive, better do what you can
    So bug off, only bug off

    [4th verse]
    You have to show them, that you definitely are not the Scared
    You're with PlayIn your life, this is not truth or venture
    They kicking you, he the Beat you guys,
    Then they talling you, that it is righteous
    So the Beat, but you want to be evil

    [Chorus]
    Only bug off, bug off, bug off, bug off,
    No-one wants to be the Forlorns
    Show's "How Funky strong Is there a battle
    It not is gap who's right or wrong

    [Chorus]
    Only bug off, bug off, bug off, bug off,
    No-one wants to be the Forlorns
    Show's "How Funky strong Is there a battle
    It not is gap who's right or wrong
    Just bug off, bug off, bug off, bug off, bug off

    [Chorus]
    Only bug off, bug off, bug off, bug off,
    No-one wants to be the Forlorns
    Show's "How Funky strong Is there a battle
    It not is gap who's right or wrong

    [Chorus]
    Only bug off, bug off, bug off, bug off,
    No-one wants to be the Forlorns
    Show's "How Funky strong Is there a battle
    It not is gap who's right or wrong

    [Chorus]
    Only bug off, bug off, bug off, bug off,
    No-one wants to be the Forlorns
    Show's "How Funky strong Is there a battle
    It not is gap who's right or wrong

    [Chorus]
    Only bug off, bug off, bug off, bug off,
    No-one wants to be the Forlorns
    Show's "How Funky strong Is there a battle
    It not is gap who's right or wrong
    Only bug off, bug off, bug off
    Beat it, beat it, beat it

    And there were, like, a lot of repetition. Some parts were seriously fun, though. So, gimme another! xD Also, would you mind giving me your Yahoo Messenger name? You know, for the judging stuff - and for fun.

    lmao, that was hilarious. Nice work. You can find the actual lyrics to the song here.

    I'll find another song real quick, but I won't be responding for a while since I am going to my fiance's house for a few hours. I'll include the link to the actual lyrics with this one, but don't peek until you translate or all the fun is lost

    [1. säkeistö]
    He kertoivat hänelle ei ikinä tullut täällä
    Eivät halua nähdä naamaasi, sinulla parempi kadota
    The Fire on heidän silmissään ja niiden sanat ovat todella selkeä
    Joten häivy, vain häivy

    [2. säkeistö]
    Sinun on parasta juosta, sinun on parasta tehdä, mitä voit
    Eivät halua nähdä mitään verta, ei olla Macho Man
    Haluat olla kova, parempi tehdä mitä voit
    Joten Beat, mutta haluat olla paha

    [Chorus]
    Vain häivy, häivy, häivy, häivy
    Kukaan ei halua olla Hylätyt
    Showin "Kuinka Funky vahva Onko taistelu
    Se ei ole väliä kuka on väärässä tai oikeassa
    Vain häivy, häivy
    Vain häivy, häivy
    Vain häivy, häivy
    Juuri häivy, häivy

    [3. säkeistön]
    Ne ulos hakemaan sinut, parempi lähteä, kun voi
    Älä halua olla poika, haluatko olla mies
    Haluatko pysyä hengissä, parempi tehdä mitä voit
    Joten häivy, vain häivy

    [4. säkeistö]
    Sinun täytyy näyttää heille, että olet todellakaan ole Scared
    Olet PlayIn kanssa elämääsi, tämä ei ole totuus tai uskalla
    He potkaista sinut, he Beat teitä,
    Sitten he kertoa teille, että se on oikeudenmukainen
    Joten Beat, mutta haluat olla paha

    [Chorus]
    Vain häivy, häivy, häivy, häivy
    Kukaan ei halua olla Hylätyt
    Showin "Kuinka Funky vahva Onko taistelu
    Sillä ei ole väliä, kuka on väärässä tai oikeassa

    [Chorus]
    Vain häivy, häivy, häivy, häivy
    Kukaan ei halua olla Hylätyt
    Showin "Kuinka Funky vahva Onko taistelu
    Sillä ei ole väliä, kuka on väärässä tai oikeassa
    Vain häivy, häivy, häivy, häivy, häivy

    That I'll do! This will be fun... So, let's see. I'll try to keep the English as bad as the Finnish is, so you spot any awkward structures, that's because I tried to be true to the Finnish one xD

    This was a great accomplishment!
    I'm almost creating an entry here:
    "a huge success!"

    It's hard to exaggerate
    My satisfaction. (it was the wrong grammatical case for Finnish, though)

    Aperture Science:
    We do, what I have for myself
    Because we can.

    You get good for us all
    Apart from those, who have died.

    But there's no sense in yelling
    Beyond every mistake.
    You only has to try
    As far as you cease cake.
    And science is allowed to make
    And you make clean weapon
    So that people, who are
    Still alive.

    I'm not even angry...
    Thus, I am sincerely right now -
    Although broke my heart with you
    And killed me.

    And ripped me apart.
    And threw every piece to the attention of a fire.
    Suchlike they are burned it hurts, because
    I was so happy for you!

    And now these places informations
    So a beautiful line.
    And Beta-phase.
    We are gets free on time!
    So I'm happy I have a burned
    Think of all that we have learned -
    So that people, who are
    Still alive.

    To go forth and leave (imperative) me ...
    I think, you want to stay inside...
    Maybe you find someone else
    You can help?
    Maybe black mesa (mesa is totally not Finnish)?
    It was a joke! Haha! Grease the opportunity!

    Anyway this cake is fine!
    It's so delicious and moist!

    Look at me: still to talk
    When science-making excists!
    When I watch there
    It makes to me happy about, I love you.

    I'm for accomplishing experiments
    Is experiment must be done.
    There are people, who are
    Still alive.
    And believe me I am
    Still alive.
    I'm doing science and I'm
    Still alive.
    To me fabulous and I'm
    As yet alive.
    Even if you are he dies I'll be (The I'll be was in English. wut?)
    Still alive.
    And when you are dead I be
    Still alive.

    As yet alive.

    Still alive.

    I also added some notes. At some points, that was hilarious. You have more of those for me? ^u^

    I have something I want you to translate, if only for win points :D Seriously, I've always wondered what this would sound like in a different language. (By the way, Google Translator was the tool I used.) (By the way, these by the ways crack me up).

    Tämä oli suuri saavutus!
    Olen luoda merkinnän tässä:
    "valtava menestys!"

    On vaikea liioitella
    Tyytyväisyyteni.

    Aperture Science:
    Me teemme, mitä minulle on
    Koska voimme.

    Saat hyväksi meille kaikille.
    Lukuun ottamatta niitä, jotka ovat kuolleet.

    Mutta ei ole mitään järkeä huutaa
    Yli jokainen virhe.
    Sinä vain pitää yrittää
    Asti te loppuvat kakku.
    Ja tiede saa tehdä.
    Ja teet siisti ase
    Jotta ihmiset, jotka ovat
    Vielä elossa.

    En ole edes vihainen ...
    Olen siis vilpittömästi juuri nyt -
    Vaikka sinulla mursi sydämeni,
    Ja tappoi minut.

    Ja repivät minut kappaleiksi.
    Ja heitti jokainen pala huomioon tulipalon.
    Sellaisina kuin ne poltetaan se satuttaa, koska
    Olin niin onnellinen puolestasi!

    Nyt nämä kohdat tiedot
    Tee kaunis linja.
    Ja Betavaihe.
    Olemme vapautuu ajoissa!
    Joten olen iloinen, minulla on palanut
    Ajattele kaikkea sitä, mitä olemme oppineet -
    Jotta ihmiset, jotka ovat
    Vielä elossa.

    Mennä eteenpäin ja jätä minua ...
    Luulen, että haluat pysyä sisällä ...
    Ehkä löydät jonkun muun
    Voit auttaa?
    Ehkä musta mesa?
    Se oli vitsi! haha! rasvaa mahdollisuus!

    Joka tapauksessa tämä kakku on hieno!
    Se on niin herkullinen ja kostea!

    Katso minua: vielä puhua
    Kun on olemassa tieteen tekemistä!
    Kun katson siellä,
    Se tekee minulle iloinen siitä, minä rakastan sinua.

    Olen kokeiden suorittamiseen.
    On tutkimus on tehtävä.
    On ihmisiä, jotka ovat
    Vielä elossa.
    Ja uskokaa minua olen
    Vielä elossa.
    Olen tekemässä tiedettä ja olen
    Vielä elossa.
    Mielestäni loistava ja olen
    Yhä elossa.
    Vaikka olet kuolee I'll be
    Vielä elossa.
    Ja kun olet kuollut i olla
    Vielä elossa.

    Yhä elossa.

    Vielä elossa.

It's troublesome enough to add the links posted by other people on the first post... Oh, and I found the missing judge: Rekhyt! The list now has six reviewers if Blue Angel is still in. Yay!

    I kinda missed writing these super-long VMs that no-one will ever understand because we switch the subject in every paragraph. Highly amusing, old champ. I'd say. (I actually visited England once, and they talked nothing like that. I learned to say one phrase in full-English-English accent because my hostess kept repeating it while on the phone with her friends. 3/4 of the words in that phrase are not allowed on PC, so I can't tell you what it was...)

    Why would they do that? They like making up rules. Why would they be admins otherwise? They love power! There are so many rules here to begin with (which, quite frankly, I think is the reason this forum is so damn awesome), so what will one more do? Apparently, however, there was a revolution, seeing how long that limit lasted. I wonder who's really in charge now... Giovanni? Cyrus?

    If I remember right, Chainsaw Chanseys were Xanthine's invention. I think it was, but then again, I was wrong last time. This time, though, I could swear it was her. So, I say it was Xanthine.

    I took me a while to realize you were talking about those puzzles xD On those gadgets: I loved the one handy little thing that monitored processor usage (or whatever it is in English, I hope you understood :/ ), because I had some slight problems with my Vista back then. Sometimes the processor usage just jumped right up to a 100% and the whole computer was as jammed as it could ever be. It took something like 10 minutes for even the Task Manager to open so I could stop the madness. So, I kept a close eye on that gadget until I gave it away to a good home (good home=oblivion) and shed a tear to its memory. Currency converters are nice... Expecially when I was buying a whole lot of DS games a while back. I bought them all from Amazon, because I got them for so cheap with dollar being so low. It was always fun... "Let's see what my 45$ purcase costs now... Oh, only 30€! How charming!" Thus, I got my Pokémon Diamond for half the price they sell it here. But that was only fair for those suckers. I can't understand why the want to take so much money waya from people who just simply want to own good games!!1111

    Wouldn't it be better if minute was 42 seconds and an hour was, say, 54 minutes? That'd mess the whole world, including Americans, in a nice way. Think about the poor kids who just learned to tell the time with an old-school clock, and then the government goes and changes everything. That much for the pride, sonny... Hmm, it could be a part of Obama's plan, actually. You know, to shorten the hour so that people get more money from same amount of working hours. Or something. Man, I should really run for a president...

    I don't think I could ever be a fan of that series... I mean, I saw one of the books in a book store the other day and tried reading a bit from the middle. It was so sappy and so Potter-ish and so... I don't know, but it didn't seem to have any sarcasm or any other form of humour in it. Harry Potter books have the Weasleys to save the book if it becomes way too angsty *coughthefiftbookcough*... But, well, I don't really know enough to mock the Twilight series very much. I should read one of those books and then come back to laugh at them.

    Yeah, at least here we can't say "blind" or "deaf" or anything like that, it has to be "hearing impaired" or "with limited eyesight" or something like that. Now the deaf people (sorry very much for using the word, but I don't use it as an insult) people have begun to complain about the "hearing impaired", too. I don't know where this world is going... Besides, it's not like they hear what people call them, anyway. xD

    Or, maybe I could publish my books with the name An-chan! i've been trying to come up with a pen name (I think an English one would be good, because it's hard to sell books - unless they're dtective stories - with Finnish name in Finland), and wouldn't An-chan be a perfect pen name? You know, people'd be all "what's with that name? I have to read this" and I'd be famous and rich and I could never do anything in my life again. Ah, that's my dream... As for that mansion, a funny image popped in my mind. Imagine a huge mansion with a huge pool outside and a great view to open sea. There's this enormous room with redwood floors and murals and all, and in the middle of that room there'd be two chairs with two people sitting in them and playing DS... xD I think you might have meant real Pokémon fights (seeing that new fic of yours, I believe you're not telling us everything *suspicious look*), but that was the image I first had. And I think we should definiely do it xD

    Why stop writing something that's fun just because you're a real author? Heck, I'm never going to stop doodling stereotypical anime girls with school uniforms even if I was to become a world-famous artist. Nor will I stop writing stupid little poems and short stories, even if I never published them. I can just imagine how you'd review a noob's fic and tell the noob you're the author who wrote thisandthat, and the noob would be all "no ur not dont **ck with me im reporting". The only logical reaction to that would be this: ;_;

    In Diamond, I encountered a scary fisherman when my Pokémon where about lv 10. I was scared to death when I saw the guy had 7 Pokémon. I soon found out they were all Magicarps and all they could do was Splash. It was an easy fight... I felt a bit bad for those Magicarps, though :<

    I'm glad you're alive ^-^

    Yeah, I noticed. I'm going to add him soon. I also noticed you said you're not used to your new avvy... Well, me neither xD I almost get startled when I see it. "WHO'S THI- Oh, right."

    I wonder how long this VM is. This conversation is getting seriously epic...

    Eh, I'm a little less sleepy today, but still tired since I was woken up about five-and-a-half hours into my slumber. Time to continue the craziness.

    I wouldn't doubt that a few admins/mods saw VM's like this and thought "that's a lot of clutter. Character limit!" Not sure why they would care so much, but eh *shrugs*

    Who was it that started the Chainsaw Chanseys then? I can't really remember too well as that was a while ago, and I am far too lazy to trace it back XD

    I actually challenged myself further by setting personal records and trying to beat them. I stopped caring so much when I got my time down below three minutes and haven't really touched it since. The other stuff is quite handy, though. The clock isn't necessary since it's in the taskbar anyway, but it still looks effing awesome. The notepad is useful for jotting ideas down if I'm afraid I'll forget before my notepad application opens. And of course, you can't forget the currency converter. It's fun looking up random amounts of USD and seeing how much that would be in other currencys.

    It's kind of funny actually, since our carbonated beverages are measured in ounces and liters whilst other things are measured by gallons and half gallons. We are a strange country o.O

    Lmao, I wouldn't be surprised if the US decided to change the way they measure time. Instead of having one minute as sixty seconds, we would probably make it fourty seconds or something. We just like to confuse the rest of the world.

    Lol, I already have a pretty good idea of the plot of the book, since I live with a hardcore fan of the series and am engaged to another. I think I could rewrite the entire series with everything they have told me and the ease of writing Sues. I, too, laughed the first time I heard any real synopsis of the books. I kinda just rolled my eyes and said "another Harry Potter-esque story." Funny enough, one of the main characters of the fourth movie ended up playing the main character of Twilight. I still think they should have gone with Daniel Radcliff though. That would have been just too perfect.

    Saying "deaf" is insulting? That's rather amusing. I have noticed a lot of groups getting steamed over stuff like that lately though. A coffee house formerly called Beaners, which is like Starbucks, had to change their name because it was supposedly offensive to Mexican Americans. That made me LOL, mostly because any child with an IQ over fifty would know that Beaners was just a reference to the coffee beans and that they were essentially calling their workers beaners. Just some funny stuff going on in the world.

    Lol, if I ever hear of some famous Finnish author, then I'm just going to assume it's you and confront you about it over another crazy-long VM. Then I'll demand that you send me an autographed copy of the book and invite me to your mansion so we can have a Pogeymans battle XD And, since I'll be an insanely famous author as well, I'll return the favor. The funny thing is that even if I am a world famous author, I'll probably still be writing Pokemon FanFiction. Maybe some poetry, but I don't know.

    If you want to conquer the world, then you'll have to go through me first! I shall rule this earth with my army of Splashing Magikarp! Seriously, Magikarp = win :D

    Lol, I haven't tried to stay up more than two nights since that time, which was five years ago, so I think I should be somewhat healthy. Well, except for the fact that I can't sleep well at night, and whenever I do fall asleep, it's never a deep sleep.

    Don't worry, I only died for a few hours. I'm alive now though :D

    Oh, and IComeAnon6 offered to be a reviewer for the archive. I've read some of his work already and it's really good, so I think he should be added to the list. Whoa, I just realized that he wrote the Gary-Stu parody. I was thinking back to another fic he was writing when I joined the forum.

    I'm pretty sure this is exactly why there ever was a character limit... lol, this is seriously starting to crack me up. I don't even know why. I guess I'm getting a tad too tired to think clearly anymore.

    Actually, I was under the impression it was Astinus who came up with the Sentret with flamethrowers -thingy. But, when I traced back at FFL (man, that took me long) I noticed it was actually me... I started feeling bad for using the thing all the time, because I felt I had stolen Astinus's joke. And what do you know, it was mine to begin with... That really suprised me, I can tell you!

    Oh, I messed with Vista just because I would have thrown my laptop out the window if there had been one more annoyin security "are you sure"-pop-up. I hated those, thus I got rid of them. I was also kind of fond to that clock and the nice little notepad on the sidebar (I also loved the puzzle, but I'm so impatient that I never finished those puzzles. I like jigsaw puzzled and tetris more...), but I had to get rid of them because they were bad for performance. Seriously, if you measured the time it took for the system to actually work after you've pressed the power button, I'd say it was years. Seriously. Decades, possibly. Thus, out you go, sidebar.

    A-ha! Now you got it wrong! Here in Europe and also in Asia and I should suppose in Oceania also, we go by kilos and grams and liters instead of punds and ounces and gallons. So, no unity there either. The one time I visited U.S. (my mom's aunt lived close to Boston), I was pretty lost at the grocery store. I had no idea if the tomatoes, for example, were cheap or not, because I didn't have a very good idea of how much a pound actually is. Also, we have the greatest cookbook ever (I think it's called "The Cookbook You Will Use Forever" or something), but I can't bake any brownies or cookies before I google all the amounts of flour and sugar (CUPS?! Oh, dear Loki and Sleipnir and all the gang. Luckily we have a set of real American cups...), the temperature of the oven an all that. One time I got so distracted I found myself thinking "what's 10 minutes in European time?" before I realized what I was thinking, laughed a lot and got back to baking. I like baking. I also like eating the batter or whatever it's called before you put it in the oven.

    Oh, dear. I actually want to see that movie, but it'd be mostly because of the lols I'd get from it. I'll have to wait until January anyway, so I might as well illegally download the movie and have my lolz for free. of course, that was just a joke... I doubt that my boyfriend/best friend/husband-to-be will be kind enough to join me and watch the movie. He's not into laughing at bad movies as much as I am. I mean, I'd seriously want to read the first book just to see what's all this fuzz about. However, after reading the plot summary of the last book of that series, I don't know if I want to after all. I suggest you read it too, from Wikipedia. It was like the stereotype of a mary sue story. Really. I'm not kiddin' ya. I laughed. A lot.

    Here in Finland, we don't have that many coloured people or whatever the politically correct word is nowadays (like, you can't say deaf because it's offensing. Instead, say "hearing impaired") nor do we have many racists. Finnish people are just incredibly xenofobic. Old people are afraid that the Somalian people take away our jobs and rape our women and rob our shops and beat up old people and whatnot. I've never believed in stuff like that (maybe because we had an immigrant class, one that teaches Finnish to foreign kids, in our school), but too many people do. I think I'm going to move to Japan (yeah, like they're any more open-hearted...) or some other nice place.

    I like sooooo totally completed my first fic, and it wasn't even that bad. At least, it better not be bad, because it's been three months or something since I wrote it xD However, I've been, as I said in FFL, writing since I was five or six or something. I better be good. If I'm not, I'm just going to be a depressed housewife instead of an author. No, seriously, I'm going to be the greatest Finnish author there ever was. I'm going to get all my books translated in English and then conquer the world. One day, you'll hear my real name and completely not know it's me, because I never told you my name xD Oh boy, do my visions of the future rock.

    I forgot to mention one thing about the movie Twilight, but as I'm too lazy to go back up and find the appropriate place, I'm just going to type it here. I seriously, seriously almost laughed when I saw who played the part of the Garystu-vampire boy. He's so... so... I can't find words for it, but he just really crowns the movie. He looks like a stereotypical modern vampire.

    I once played tetris for 10 hours. I was nine back then. This is a completely random note. Well, maybe it's somehow related to you being up five nights. (ARE - WERE YOU INSANE?! Well, so am I, so big deal.)

    I'm on a mood that almost begs me to continue that parody of mine. Maybe I should... Then again, I don't feel like I have the energy.

    ...And, you're still up. Isn't your fiancee worried you might die? Or get a heart attack because your heart is so damn tired? Seriously, now, POB, you should go to sleep. Well, unless you can sleep for the following two days, then it's not a big deal. I guess. At least I'm not going to be responsible if you die!

    Lol, bring on the stalkers. If we catch 'em then we can set our Sentrets with flamethrowers and our Chanseys with chainsaws on them XD

    I happen to have 2GB of RAM (Yay for graduation gifts!), so I really have no trouble running Vista, it's more a matter of what features are only there to clutter up my screen and what I actually want to have. I did get rid of the sidebar for a while, but the giant customizable clock and the puzzle boxes kind of grew on me. I love a good puzzle, and who can't love a cat-like clock named "Your Mother"?

    I'm much too lazy to mess with the security settings in Vista, but the only time I have really had to allow anything is when Avast! updates or I decide to play Frets on Fire or whatnot. Java applications usually require me to press that allow button as well, but I can live with that. Considering I spend most of my time on my computer now either here, writing, or researching for my fictions, I rarely ever run into that security pop-up issue.

    I was never really a fan of XP to begin with. The only things I prefer in XP over this is the network controls and stuff like that. I had grown used to messing with network devices in XP, and they changed a lot of stuff in that area when they made Vista. They wanted the network to be more secure for Vista computers, I guess. Still rather annoying, though.

    Yes, thank Odin that the character limit has been removed. (Note: I don't really worship Viking Gods, I just enjoy referencing them from time to time XD) It would really suck to have to split each of these posts up to actually keep up with the conversation.

    The difference in systems of measurement is quite unfortunate, and also the driving issues. I mean, why can't every country stick to a single standard of measurement for everything instead of confusing the entire world with five different ways to measure the same thing? (exaggeration, but oh well). It makes it particularly hard for people like us who live in completely different parts of the world (well, in terms of continents. We pretty much occupy the same Lattitudes) that have stuck to opposite forms of measurement our entire lives. This problem is only in length and temperature I believe, though. I'm fairly certain that America goes by the SI units for volume and mass (obviously, as I don't think there are other measurements of mass). That is, unless Finland doesn't measure anything by the gallon? I'm a little rusty on my SI st00f considering the last science class I was in was during my Junior year of High School (circa 2006).

    I agree. I have aspirations to be a published author someday, and if we are both to become famous, then we need to conspire to publish these before it's too late. Hmm, I wonder how International Copyright Laws work in this case?

    In the case of this novel, we should also throw in random allusions to a vampire boy falling in love with a human girl (LOL!) The funny thing about that, though, is that I actually went to see the movie this past weekend with my sister and fiance. And, it pains me to say this, it was okay. However, I thought that if they were to use a character from Harry Potter, than it should have been Daniel Radcliff instead of the guy that played Cedric Diggory. I just couldn't help but make jokes about him the entire movie.

    One example of such a joke was in a serious part of the movie. Edward had told Bella that she should just go, and they had argued about that for a time, then he says to her, all serious, "Where would I go?" This, of course, was followed by a response from me that was along the lines of "You could go to Hogwarts." My fiance had a hard time stiffling a giggle when I made that remark.

    Ahhhh!!!!! Conspiracy! Conspiracy! I think they actually proved the link between the twin tower attacks: the time of the day, the date of the attacks, and the Emergency number of the US. I mean, doesn't that seem like waaaayyy too many coincidences to occur in one terrorism attack?

    Another thing about conspiracy theorys: a (former) friend of mine seems convinced that the US presidential election was a set up to assassinate Barrack Obama and, I quote, "show those [African American's] there place!" (I replaced a much harsher word with African American because I find the other word way too offensive and am uncomfortable even quoting it.) He even went so far as to suggest that John McCain is a member of the Ku Klux Klan and lost the election on purpose. He then tried to shove his intolerant views on me, which was that African Americans are an "inferior" race. I rejected this philosophy, however, and I haven't talked to him since.

    Mine actually just did the update request again. I set mine to go off in every hour in hopes that I will have crashed by then, but so far no luck. Oh well, should happen soon.

    I actually don't consume too much caffeine anymore, to be honest. I don't drink energy drinks at all, and I only drink soft drinks with light amounts of caffeine. I really don't know what is messing with my sleep >=[ And don't worry too much; I have no plans of dying until I publish at least six books. Maybe seven. Seven sounds like a good number. Of course, I could just go up to 666 books and quit there XD

    So far, the only fic I have finished was that One-Shot, but that doesn't really count. The first fiction I ever wrote was a Pokemorph fiction in fourth grade that was extremely generic and, to be honest, stupid. I have no idea what possessed me to even think I could get away with writing that.

    The second fic I ever wrote was a generic, extremely cliched OT where the main character started off in Kanto along with his cousin (I used both mine and my cousins names for the main characters, actually) and basically followed the paths of the games. It was poorly written, however, and involved the capturing of several legendary Pokemon, the worst of which was an Entei in chapter three, before I discontinued it because of the death of my cousin. I discontinued it after probably seven or eight chapters, and couldn't bring myself to write any more in it after my cousin died.

    The third fic I wrote is actually the Fall of Light. I took quite a break between that OT fic and this one. It started off pretty bad, actually, but I have revised it several times to fix many, many obvious errors. I'm still not satisfied, but I'm going to wait to do a complete revision until I have finished it.

    My One-shot was next, followed several months later by a fiction I wrote only a prologue of in September I think and haven't updated since, and Affliction soon followed. I plan on rotating through them to keep them all updated regularly, however, so that none get too neglected. Next up is Apocolypse XD

    I actually forgot that you asked me about the parody. I'm still chugging along at that. Still stalking PFF regulars and memorable writers to figure out how to best portray them. I have done little more than take notes so far, and will probably start characterizing people pretty soon. I had thought that the parody would be done by now, but I guess I set too short of a time limit on myself.

    As for staying up late, I have survived five nights in a row playing an online game. This was sixth grade, mind you, and the best I have done since is two nights, probably around 50 hours. Yeah, I'm a little insane XD

    I think this could be like two chapters here lol
