Not willing to sacrifice, though.
YES, I’m BACK! And OLD! Yes, 18 now, legally allowed to drink in bars (I don’t do that..), buy and rent 18 films (which aren’t my style) and games (which isn’t often), amongst other things that I can’t really think of now. Oh, get married. Which I won’t. Ever.
Speaking of weddings, my brother’s wedding was great, just got a bit annoying at the disco, cuz it was WAY too loud (YES, it CAN be too loud, if the music SUCKS. The guitarist’s riffs were great, though. ) and I only truly knew five of the 70 people who were there. And I didn’t talk to them, cuz they’re all old.
The rest of it was great though. Speech went 7000^4,000,000 times better than I thought it would, and everyone loved it. I kept saying "I’m as COLD AS ICE!!" before the speech… like… up to three hours before, because, well… I WAS as cold as ice! Supercool! JUST OUT OF THE FREEZER! Wasn’t nervous at all.
For mah B’day, I didn’t get loads of presents, cuz no-one actually had any idea what to get me. Craig gave me £60, Grandparents gave me £50, Ian (New father in law) gave me £20, and a very warm Scottish welcome (while at the same time holding a giant sword, that was during the speech, it was awesome. ), Val (woman who owns our house) gave me £20, and next door neighbours gave me £20. So… £170, which is the most I’ve ever recieved for my birthday before. My only three presents were the Samsung Omnia (which I got a little while ago for an early birthday present) a bigasstub of sweets (that I’m eating RIGHT NOW!) and an absolutely stunning new dragon.
The dragon is like… perfect, his pose is awesome, his colours are brilliant and he’s so well painted (They even used a different type of paint for certain parts of him, like his talons, his tongue and the inside of his mouth are all glossy and feel smooth, and the rest is matte and feels rougher! I’ve never seen that done before!). The only two things I can say that’s wrong with him is that he looks slightly ugly, and his legs have no scales and look pretty weird. But what the hell, there’s no such thing as an "incorrect" dragon! (Unless the dragon is hideously ugly or just doesn’t look anything like a dragon… )
So yes, had a great birthday, even if it was nearly totally eclipsed by by brother’s wedding. I also JUST checked my bank balance, and just said "HOLY SHIT!" as I have about £250 in there now, which is like… the most I’ve ever had since I built my PC.
So, no, this weekend, I haven’t done ANYTHING on Dragon Tail, and nor have I done anything on ULSG. I’ve gotta finish this work for college by Wednesday (some 3DS Max work is rendering RIGHT NOW, and it’s so particle-system heavy that it’s gonna take about a total of 2 hours for 6.2 seconds of video. YES, REALLY!)
Because of this, I doubt I’ll do anything on Dragon Tail tomorrow, or Wednesday. Yes, I’m sowwy! Annoyingly, work has to be more important than the best piece of writing I’ll ever do for a long time. I have got a huge amount of new trance/dance albums thanks to Tom next door, so that should boost me through Chapter 41 and the prologue. I’ll get it on here as soon as it’s ready, I promise!
Right, I’m off now, cuz the stupid text entry system of these spaces is being slowed down by the 3DS Max render, and it’s missing out letters that I type. So, I’ll see yous all later!
