Double Entendre

I was playing a board game today with Robert (my younger brother), and I was thinking about board game titles. Then I remembered "Scattergories" which sounds a lot like "Scategories". I then said that to him, and he didn't get it. I asked him if he knew what it meant, and he said yeah.

I asked him what scat meant.

He said "Boo-dee-doo-wop-wop".

Apparently scat also means jazz onomatopoeia used in singing.

I broke it to him hard.

Every day has been an overcast day in Sacramento. I've really been missing that. The temperature is also colder, but it bites less than in Valencia.

Day before-yesterday I spent the morning and afternoon setting up the ornaments and birds of my Christmas tree, and also preparing for a party that my parents were having with some guests in our house.

It was real nice! There were three kids that came, and we played Clue and Pictionary. It was pretty funny, I tricked my brother into losing by saying the the suspects that we thought were true, but I used the weapons card I had to lure him in.

Too bad I was kind of stupid and took the long route of getting back to the stairs from the Conservatory instead of teleporting to the Lounge and moving only six spaces. So, one of the guests got there before me and won.

Bitter, bitter defeat.

After that we had a nice meal in the table. Some home made barbecue ribs with a sauce that my mom and sister make from scratch for special occasions, mashed potatoes, string beans, and finally some three milk cake made from scratch with a dollop of cool whip and raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries on top.

It was amaaaazing.

I want to take photos to document my blogs visually, but I'll have to wait until after Christmas when everything goes on sale.

Until then, I'll just be using my laptop:

Yesterday I spent my time with my brother's best friend, Aaron, playing Halo 3 and biking to Walgreens for some junk food. After Aaron left, I did all of my Christmas shopping in one load in Arden Fair mall with Robert (brother), was invited to a friend's party, and talked with the pleasant Riyoko Iwamoto during the morning, and lovely Hannah Ayoubi in the evening. I also got Super Smash Bros 64 for the Wii's Virtual Console (and then splurged with Pokemon Snap and Zelda: Majora's Mask).

What a vacation, geeze!

Are slowly coming undone. Well, not really. I just felt like saying that.

But anyways, Christmas vacation is now! I'm going to spend one free day with my friends before I head back home. They are the coolest people I could ask for, really. I feel like we kind of have become a fusion of relatives of sorts and friends. It's just a close community that I have never experienced in my life before so artistically inspiring and so jubilant.

There's nothing more I can ask for than just that.

I think I should learn how to keep personal feelings hidden to prevent trouble. Yet, if I'm not true to myself, would I be living behind a mask?


I only have one more final left, and I've inappropriately been feeling like it's already vacation. WORK DAMMIT. WOOORK.

The World of Elements

I promised to explain the fifteen elements around a week ago, so I'm overdue. These are the fundamental elements to me in my imaginary world. I'm fascinated by how the world is made, from the four or five elements known in cultural teachings, or how it's scientifically dissected.

As a bit of back story, I made them up when I was in fourth grade, and they've grown and changed as I have. Each element has stood on its own against the test of time.

This is what the elements do as groups:

Air: Expands molecules to become gas structures
Water: Expands or contracts molecules to become a liquid
Solid: Contracts molecules to become solid

Light: Produces light energy
Dark: Takes light energy

Heat: Giving of (thermal) energy to make something warm
Cold: Taking of (thermal) energy to make something cold

Earth: The ability to change molecular structures to form different materials; Alchemy.
Bio: Molding organic structures.

Conduction: The pushing and pulling of magnetic fields
Psi: Warping space to control gravitational fields.
Current: Weaving directional influence with any element.

Time: Controlling time continuum.
Mind: Tapping into neural bonds.
Spirit: The supernatural.

But, I have organized them in this list by my personal colors that are associated to their nature:

Light [White]
Air [Off-White]
Mind [Light Magenta]
Heat [Red]
Earth [Muted Brown]
Time [Orange]
Conduction [Yellow]
Bio [Green]
Cold [Light Blue]
Water [Sapphire]
Current [Lavender]
Psi [Purple]
Solid [Steel]
Spirit [Translucent Silver-White]
Dark [Black]

I hope it makes sense to you guys.

When I walk to my room in the fourth floor (only stair accessible) I somehow build static in my shoes.

Reason I know is that every time I touch my key to the keyhole of my door, I see a little spark of electricity ignite.

I found out this week that I can take dance classes whenever I want to join and that there's an available piano near my Animation cubicles.

Need to get to that!
