Prom Night

At long last, it is over. An eerie quiet decends as the guns fall silent. People cheer at the sight of the oncoming holidays. In flanders schoolyards the poppies grow...
On top of that though, it is that time of year again, a season of much revelry as adolescents everywhere primp themselves up, party the night away and may and migrate over to secluded overlooks and drive-in movies everywhere, where they may or may not be horribly killed by deranged psychopaths, green creatures from Mars or giant ants, all natural predators of adolescents.

Yes, two readers of this blog, it is soon to be the time of the prom, and I will, for the first ever time, ever, be attending.

I know not what I will find there, nor if I shall return alive, but nonetheless this upcoming Tuesday I shall don formal attire and venture forth into the wild glitterey yonder. I make no promises on pictures, but if I can obtain them and both of you people who read this blog believe enough, then there just might be a couple in the next one. Maybe (probably not)...

In other news, to celebrate the new Fuse thingummy, the month of July will be a MEGA-LIBRARYMAJIG MAYHEM MONTH. This means there will be a librarymajig every Thursday, starting from the second one. Golly.

Also being looked at is an archaic games day. Exactly what this offers I am not sure, but some gladiatorial combat might be fun to watch. Wait, what? It's not that archaic? Fine, be like that, have it your way, I don't even know why we even have an arena-pit of blood and death anyway.....

Well, that's all for now really folks, I must again be off to do battle with the forces of opposing antagonism, otherwise known as evil. Exunt!

18 candles

Guess what two readers of this blog? I am. as of Wednesday, an adult in the eyes of the law. I am now 18.

I'm not really sure I like this. I now have to pay adult fares, and pay for healthcare, and can be tried as an adult. And, since I am not 17 nomore, I am no longer the dancing queen. Not sure how to feel about that.

It probably doesn't help that, by birthday standards, Wednesday was largely shoddy and served to remind that, for me at least, birthdays and school do NOT mix.

Alas it seems my blog typemajig seems forever deformed, reduced to this lifeless shell. The Apple products have struck a terrible blow by doing this, but revenge will be mine.

Also of note is the imminent arrival of Fuse, coming this fall, from the creators of Manix, and featuring an all star cast, also showing in 3-D. There is now also Prometheus. Watch Prometheus. If you're a fan of flashy lights and big extravegant sci-fi epics (and if you aren't, well I don't know, watch something you do like) you must see it.

And there is of course the next gathering of our cabal, next Thursday on the 14th. There's normally some form of cooking on this one, and perhaps I will finally get a cake for me. Or not. Maybe it will feature creme freshe.

That about covers it I'll wager. I must now depart to do battle with the forces of evil. At least I think they're evil. At the very least we disagree on a number of fundamental issues. Exunt!
