Actually, that is a lie. I turned seventeen on Wednesday.
Thanks muchly for all the birthday messages! A total of five people sent me the Arrogant Worms Happy Birthday song, which is a new record! (In case you're unaware, this is the song I send to everybody on their birthday.)
Anyway, I've had a very eventful three weeks, but after each day I kept wondering, "Is this journal-worthy? Hm... nah, I won't bother." That included a two-day engineering course, receiving a Gold Award at the National Concert Band festivals (as part of an ensemble, of course), and four days' work experience at Rolls-Royce. The past two days, however... I feel I'm obliged to write about them, no?
I'm seventeen now! Raaagh!
Here follows a list of awesome things that happened (that may or may not be related):
I got Batman! DanananananananananananananananaBATMAN
I used the money my Grandma gave me to buy Breakout Rocka
I recruited a Feebas on Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue. Awww yeah.
Razziary made me an awesome Pokéball present: razziary.deviantart.com/art/Ma…
Mum got me a French Horn keyring and a book of Andrew Lloyd Webber pieces, arranged for horn. I spent Wednesday morning blasting these out full pelt.
I realised that I have two more days' holiday than I'd previously thought. Yessssssss.
My sister got me a mug with Mario characters on it This has earned a place in my Facebook profile picture. That is how cool it is.
She also got me a tiny blue rabbit plush thing, with a brown moustache. I've named him Mudkip.
Razziary and another friend (remember The Flute Player From Orchestra from a while back? Yes, her) took me out to see the film Mirror Mirror, which is essentially a Snow White spoof that was much more entertaining than I would've expected And by that I mean that it showed a man pretending to be a dog and other people wearing ships as hats, but also had seven actual dwarves (one of whom was Asian!) and puppet monsters. Yeaaah!
The website xkcd.com is selling a T-shirt with this on it. I'm going to see if I can convince my Dad to let me borrow some cash...
As a present to myself, I downloaded the Mario Coin sound and made it play whenever I get a text on my phone. 'Tis awesome.
In other news, I may be doing my first attempt at a YouTube MOC review sometime soon. I think I'll start off with the four miniMOCs I have; they're the least likely to fall apart on-camera, right?
That's all from me. Have a nice belated Easter!
