The Meeting. The Epic Meeting. Oh, and Pie! We Can't forget the Pie!

HEY!!! So excited. Not for anything... just because of something we did. And now I have the blues. The bad ol' blues. Seriously. Really badly.

WE. JUST. MET. MILLARD. AND. SCIFIAUTHOR. AT. CHIC-FIL-A!!!!

Yah. Spent like an hour and a half to two hours talking... exchanging random stories. I listened for the most part, actually. :) 'Twas a very interesting experience, listening to Jake, Millard, and SciFi talking like they'd known each other for forever. 'Twas VERY interesting.

We walked in and thought we saw somebody that looked like Millard that was still in the parking lot, so we just continued on... and then as soon as we were there, standing in the doorway, Millard walks up and introduces himself. Much greetings, but no hallucinations. XD

A few minutes later, SciFiAuthor walks in, also. We recognized him pretty easily. So we all ordered stuff to eat and sat down, Jake, SciFiAuthor, Millard, and Millard's father sitting in one booth, my mom, Ry, and me in another. Manny, sadly, couldn't make it.

I sat in the booth behind Jake, trying to get a good seat so that I could both hear and see and be comfortable, all at the same time. Finally I ended up sitting on the window-sill which was level with the seat, and that was comfortable enough. :)

After a little while, I pulled out my 'special' sketchbook and began to work on the picture called 'Redeemer.' I'd figured out a background and had already started it. The background is strange. Wierd. Whatever you want to call it. But back to subject!

Random stories went around, and I thought I heard something about someone going on many unsuccessful camping trips and a golf-ball in the door of somebody's trailer... so anyways, quite funny. Especially since I was meeting these people for the first time, loving the experience, and thinking how strange it was that we were talking to them like we'd known them face-to-face before. I positively loved it.

Jake showed off his Kindle a bit, and they looked at that for a few minutes, and then moved on. I think my mom had almost as good a time as we did, XD

Then Ry went out to get the big surprise: A dairy-and-egg-free-PIE!! Blueberry. We gave it to Millard from Manny, and he ate one piece. And so we hope the pie was a success!

*sways around to the tune* What's playing in my head? The blues. Its that feeling that you get when you go somewhere and have an enormous amount of fun and then have to leave... its almost like a mild case of depression! And it was worse now, because I'd only met them once... *sighs*

Well, anyways, some other news is that I saw TRON: Legacy. Manny and I LOVED it, though what Jake said was, "I don't know what to think of it."
I said, "What do you mean?"
"It was complicated and confusing... I don't know what to think of it."
Manny joins in. "Well, I followed it just fine, and I loved it!"
"Me too," I say.
Well, all I know is that Jake commented on Facebook saying he liked it, so I guess that's it. XD

Drawings... Like I said, I've been working on 'Redeemer.' Its the one where the shadowed person is on some rocks and helping another shadowed person up. The background turned out to be a pair of sad eyes with a tear. I'm okay at eyes, though noses are my worst. I luckily didn't really have to draw a nose. *whew*

Other things... other things? Well, I think I forgot to mention this, but Ry got a beta fish! She loves him overly much. :) And named him Eldrin... an orphan I made up just before I met Eldra... and it sounds like Eldra, GRR. I'm thinking of changing the name of the orphan, but I'm pretty sure Ry's beta fish's name is going to stay the same. ;) If this sounds too much like your name, Eldra, then please tell me. :)

Currently 5,000 words on my novel, YAY.

OH, and a few people I know have now made blogs.
Hark, at The Ink and Quill of Hark
And Rowan, at Lost in Fields of Fireflies.
HUZZAH!! *claps*

Working on a speech for Co-op... I'm torn between doing it about my Air Drake Painting, or my Leviathan Painting. Whichever one I do I get to bring to class. The Air Drake has less mistakes, but I'm not sure which one is better. GR.

Whew, American History is easy this week. Last week we had to finish memorizing all the states and capitols, read the chapter and study for the test, do a test on both the chapter and the States and Captitols--the list never ended. :P And what's more, I'm going to rant for you. XD
What I found really upset me (but it shouldn't have!) was that we'd studied ALL the States and Capitols and worked hard (Manny and I) To remember which went with which. We knew we'd have to face one of the teachers when we did the States and Capitols, but we thought it would just be a paper of the States or Capitols mixed up and we'd have to find either the States or Capitols. But ouch, were we so wrong.
Instead, we had to take a map they gave us, and put all the states and capitols where they went. I am SO bad at this sort of thing, and I hadn't even studied for this! I was upset... so badly upset that I thought I was going to cry, and I don't cry easily. This wouldn't normally make me so upset, but it was my second class and I'd gotten up at six A.M. Ouch.
Anyways, Manny had the idea to write out the States and Capitols and then turn THAT in, and she got a yes for that, and I wasn't doing it... so I continued putting states in the wrong places, until I got frustrated enough to start writing the States and Capitols down on the back like Manny. Manny got FORTY EIGHT when we had to stop... she ALMOST got 'em. I got forty one. Ow. And alongside that, I'd used up my whole break-time, my only chance to play football--the only time its fun. :P
So, thanks for listening to my incredibly annoying rant. And if you skipped to the end of it, then I don't blame ye. O_o

Ah, yes... time for my post to end. :) Farewell! And sorry about the rant. XD

Cool! Sorry that Jake couldn't seem to understand the movie; apparently, it's a hard plot to follow if one hasn't already seen the original movie. (I had seen the original before watching Legacy, so I didn't have any problems.)

Side question: Did you receive my email?

Squeaks said...

Awesomeness!! You got to meet Millard and SciFiAuthor??? EPIC!!! Bahaha, I wish I could have been there *cries* I want to have the amazing honour of meeting you folks some day :D maybe in the far far future when we're all old and crinky lolz XD ok, hopefully not THAT far in the future :P Thanks for sharing!! I remember having to memorize the states and capitols once upon a blue moon. Yeah yeah, I see the look... "HUH?" I know, I'm Canadian lol...but I did the A Beka program which is through the states... *boink* yep. Torture. I agree with you whole heartedly :D

Signed with a whistle.

Wowie, that must have been fun! Meeting Millard and SciFiAuthor! Gaaaa I sooooooo wish I had been there! Even if I had been an ant crawling up the wall even that would have been awesome :) lol

I know, isn't TRON: Legacy AWESOME??!! A really weird thing is that one of my Uncles looks EXACTALLY like Sam Flynn!

Drawings: Sweet! Keep it up :)

Sometimes school can REALLY stink! But at other times it can be fun...

PS: You'll NEVER guess where Skillet is playing on my birthday??
KANSAS! I think I may have to go to that concert...:)

GB!! - Leauphaun

The Director said...

That's so awesome that you met Millard and SciFiAuthor-- I met Millard just over a week ago, as well as Alastrina and Dibl the Joyous, but I still haven't met the Sadaar clan.... *sniffs* Glad you guys had an epic time :D

Poor Jake, not understand Tron. It was an awesome movie ;)

Jake said...

I understand it, but I wished it had been extended. O_o

My own blog post, complete with pictures, shall be forthcoming soon.

Rowan said...

Hey, that's my name! And my blog! In your blog post!! *feels special* Heh...:)

@Eldra
Yeah... I really liked the movie. Twas pretty good. :)
And yes, I got your email. Getting ready to send in a description for Leauphaun. :)

@Leauphaun
Lets hope that if you HAD been an ant I wouldn't have accidentally crushed you. O_O
Ah, yes, I wish everyone could be there... Very muchly. I want to meet ALL.
Looks like Sam Flynn?? Oh my. XD
Thanks.
And maybe *I* shall have to go to it as well... and we shall *accidentally* meet. XD


@Squeaks
Yes... torture. *wide eyes upon remembering*
Actually, its not that strange that you memorized them. We have an African American friend who had to memorize the Lincoln's Address when he was a kid in Liberia, Africa! Talk about strange. :)
Hopefully I'll be able to meet you before then. ;) If not, there's always Heaven!

@The Director
Lucky TD... I've met a total of TWO UGers that I didn't know before I joined...

@Jake
Yes, and you shall have to give me those pictures as well. *glares* I have need of them. *bwahahaha*

@Rowan
Yes, you! Of course. Love the blog, by the way!
