There tons of kids that know me but frankly Badg... I mean nametags are cool.

Plus being known as TP2 brother seems like you're a little overshadowed.

I'm a sophmore. A sophmore who has mastered the art of finishing almost all of his homework at school. That is why 6-7 hours seems like a lot.

One problem Duck, The namecards are a bit smaller than the size I use.
I had to scale them down to fit the new ones.
I have Adobe Photoshop 6.0 (old version, I think): well ive checked the size. It is about

width: 250 pixels
height: 179 pixels

I havent printed them yet because the lack of color ink, so im not sure of the size.
ill give you just one this Monday so you can fix it the way you want it. Then just bring all of the badges to the gt. If I am able to go, I will bring the rest of the plastics. If I dont go, (I hope I do), then I will have SPARTAN-014 take them in my stead.

Good Morrow!

"Pickwick, I have a question. Why do you say, "good morrow" when you post?"

As has been mentioned by the "Despicable Transporter of Pedestrians Located in a Transition Between Periods of Walking", there is no rational expression for the manner in which I open my posts; it merely occurs, as do the more easily explainable phenomena of falling leaves, the formation of snowflakes, and the dreaded moment of the pre-morning segment of the day in which the alarm clock is observed to emit a piercing and abrasive tone in an insistent, if not insolent, fashion.
Perhaps 'twould be best to regard it as a natural law adhering to the basic physical structure of the universe; perhaps, were I to come across my antimatter equivalent in an alternate universe, he would begin his messages with some other form of greeting which would, of course, be as exquisitely appropriate to the venue from which they would be read. I cannot say, bound, as I am, to this miniscule, infinitesimally small facet of the multiverse; perhaps there exist others who would be more knowledgeable than I. There are times when an insoluble mystery enters the realm of our senses, bringing with it an opportunity to explore new worlds of thought and to expand our knowledge; this is not, apparently one of those times.
I hope that was profound enough an answer to forestall more inquiries; I'm taking a break from homework to write this. This, oddly enough, leads rather naturally to my next topic.

"I'm a sophmore. A sophmore who has mastered the art of finishing almost all of his homework at school. That is why 6-7 hours seems like a lot.--TurtlePerson2
That does sound excessive for sophomore year; that's equivalent to the workload of a junior taking three or more AP classes and involved in the operation of two clubs (myself.) What classes are you taking, at which school(s) are you taking them, and what teachers do you have?

Duck, were I to cease drinking coffee, I suspect my GPA would slide an entire point downward. Rest assured, however, that I utilise caffeine only when the completion of homework threatens to take a number of minutes greater than those available until the hour of one in the morning, or on a day after such an early-morning homework spree; so far this year, I have survived five "all-nighters," wherein all of the time normally set aside for sleep is occupied by the implementation of a homework-completion process. Thus, without the aid of a substantial amount of caffeine, Mrs. Dahl would have observed me sleeping through an entire school week of her AP History class(1st hour) so far, and I would not be alive to write this. I do not, of course, imbibe coffee or caffeinated beverages on weekends except in preparation for events such as the PSAT or a library tournament involving video games. Do you drink coffee at all?

As usual, all are bidden to experience a
Good Day!

Pickwick, have you been procrastinating so much that you have to do your homework late at night because it was due the very next day?
If so, then join the club.

[gtlogo:RED]


No I do not drink coffee, but I do occasionally drink caffeinated soda pop. I could see Mrs. Dahl go into a spastic rampage if you were to fall asleep 5 times in 4 weeks. Still taking a small grade hit from one or two days of rest is better then your brain crashing during finals. There are very few moments in which I have talked to you and you weren't tired or eating coffee beans.

my friend last year took the SATs at pioneer and he got 1200-1300 not so sure and he was in 7th grade. im not going to be prepared for the next tournament cuz i havent been practicing much! 21 posts in 28 hours thats an improvement. we middle schoolers have a bunch of homework too we have a test in every subject next week and a bunch of assignments due. the party was awsome, 12 player halo 2!

[gtlogo:TMC]


heh...
My friend nate (SPARTAN-014) just learned that he knew some guys who go to the gt after all. Hes a newcomer, but he knows Tom (MiniBlin) from volleyball or something. He had no idea that they go to the gt.
So maybe #014 can discuss with him about the gt or somethin.

Still worried that if I dont go to the gt, can some1 step up and sub for me in my clan? only if I end up not going.

"Pickwick, have you been procrastinating so much that you have to do your homework late at night because it was due the very next day?
If so, then join the club."

While I respect very much the gesture of extending an offer of membership in the aforementioned organisation, I am afraid I must decline, on grounds which shall be specified within the space of a few sentences. The habit mentioned as a precursor to entry has, in fact, been in my possession during years past, and indeed, so near as the most recent school year to have transpired. Nay, the cause for which many of the hours wherein a potential for sleep lay were not utilised to their fullest may be found in my tendency toward prolixness and a very high standard for my writing, which leads to an essay of a single page being three or five hours in the transcribing. The sad irony in my case is that, as you may be aware, there is precious little to be had in the way of inspiration during the wee hours of the morning, and so, after hours of editation, which was not truly a word until now, but may be said, from this moment henceforth, to refer to the process of being edited; after, as I say, many hours, the end product is a wretched travesty of a paper, nowhere near to the level of quality that may readily be observed in my posts. It is thus that I must express my deepest, utmost gratitude for the invitation, and explain that, had you offered it a mere five months ago, it would have been accepted, but that at this time, I cannot afford to do so, lest my GPA resume its downward trend of years past; and, finally, forward my most humble and sincere apologies and regrets.

"There are very few moments in which I have talked to you and you weren't tired or eating coffee beans."
This is true. There were also the times when I was eating coffee beans and still tired. This state of being (by which I refer to tiredness rather than my habits regarding coffee) has, I believe, prevailed since August, 1997.

"Duck: when you say
"round up the usual suspects"
are you making any reference to the patriot act?"

Hah! That possibility hadn't occurred to me, but it seems...like I've already forgotten my promise not to mention politics until I've debated that with Duck and Major Tom. Still: inspired connection, BCL/Anti-Snowman!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Day!

"Round up the usual suspects." is a quote form Casablanca one of the best movies ever made. Shame on you for not knowing that and I'm not making any reference to patriot act.

Good Morrow!
"I just practiced a little and I'm about to start home work. I need to get in shape Mariokart wise"
Lucky! I haven't been able to practice for a week and a half; hope I don't have any homework on Thursday, or else all of you will beat me....

This is about the time to start planning for the pre-competition matches that I proposed. I believe that two people had accepted my offer for a duel, but I can't remember which two, and I'm a little busy right now to scan the previous forums(the ONE downside to having filled them with random scribblings!). If those who had agreed to a skirmish would remind me and suggest details for meeting before the competition (so perhaps around 5:30'ish) and information to aid in identification, it would be greatly appreciated. I believe that one was Flare (the original, of course), and the other may have been Sravan...?? Regardless, I plan to be there about as early as possible, and I will probably be wearing either a Red Wings jersey, a different Red Wings jersey, a dark blue and black Hawaiian shirt, or a faded green psuedo-Hawaiian shirt.
Good Day, and Good Luck to all, including me!
---------Pickwick the Second---------
PS: I have been asked by a clan member to ask this of pr0/Sravan: Sir, while at the previous tournament, did you, by any chance, engage in combat with, and defeat with little trouble, a team in melee at the Battlefield--a team that may, perchance, have consisted of a Fox and a Marth? If so, I must deliver another challenge: we'd like to avenge our ignoble deaths this Friday or Saturday(in Open Play, as we've switched up our teams a bit for the official matches.)

"Next up is our 13+ SSB-only tournament, Friday, October 21st, at 6:00 PM, and then Round 3 on Saturday, October 22nd, from Noon to 5:00 PM."
One of my class mates intends to show-up for the melee only and he is really pompous. So someone (pr0, Pickwick, etc) please beat the crap out of him. He really annoys me always saying he is the best at melee.

Who is it? I could just beat the crap out of him in real life, it's a lot easier than setting up a tournament to do it. If you do that, it sounds like one of those stupid Dragonball Z shows or whatever.

Your right the tournament thing is straigth out of dbz (such a bad show). Cool I tell you who he is if he shows up. But Tom you're forgetting the Child Battery Laws.

sravan ill sub for you i just decided this so who am i on a team with? Oh pickwick i think it might have been my team with drax that beat them but i'm not sure

"Its not over till its started"


not so sure yet flare. it'll probably be me and darksoul for mkdd and melee and u and galen more mkdd and melee. but if a team makes it into the prize round and the other doesnt then we will change them. duck its at the main library. guys i have to leave from clague and my thing ends at 4:45-5. i have 2 routes i can take to the libary one will get there at 5:15 but i have to leave practice early but the other will get me there at 5:30 but i dont have to leave as early. i'll probably take the early one unless i can convince a clague guy to give me a ride so i'll be there around 5:25ish.

well i just registered and i realize that we'll be doing ssbm first and thats a good idea so all those cons who think they are all that but then get creamed will leave and the skilled mkdd players will play mkdd.
[gtlogo:TMC]


It's 13 and up because that's what the game is rated. We fudge it a bit at the GT tournaments, but I couldn't really advertise a tournament for a T rated game for all ages to come to, and we had to draw the line somewhere. However, if you have played in a GT tournament, you can come to the melee-only, I'll let you play.

As for the syntax error, thanks, Duck, we'll fix that.


Good Morrow!
I think I may take the honour of being the first to sign up for a team game, as I appear to be preparing for another all-nighter. Muahahahahahahahah!

Good Day!
PS: On second thought, I'll take Duck's advice. Never mind.

dang

no


This has nothing to do with anyone Except Pickwick.

We have a bottle drive going on. I went to the one during the summer (late because of misinformation) but had no clue we were still going with it. That reminds me that I have the receipts for those.

Pickwick(s) did you count me in the poinsettias. I sold 5 but contacted Linda directly because of lack of info. As for the Candy Bar sales it is possible to raise 3-3.5k so we still have a shot we just need to sell quite a few. I trust we will have at least 2 weeks to sell them. Having time is the biggest factor: with the poinsettias I could have sold 20-30 easily having contacted just a few people but having like 2 nights (when I found out) I rushed my attempts.

If the fund raisers were organized to give plenty of time to allow us to sell stuff. Having all fund raisers start as soon as possible instead of this sporadic mess would be nice for one. Also could we please have the number of required hours be stated? I remember last year having like 45-50 hours and finding out I needed 70 (because I’m not a girl).

P.S. When is the next workshop? I plan on bringing Once Upon a Time to pass the time the mentor isn't there. Trust me this is a game of mine you'll like.

Good Morrow!
I fully agree with your expressed sentiments regarding fundraising. I have been somewhat out of the loop on that issue, and I do not, as yet, know the time frame in which the candy sale will take place. There is a Board Meeting next week, and it seems likely that it will be determined then. I shall see what I can do.
As for hours, I think we are going to use something akin to the percentage form outlined in the membership guidelines (which I STILL haven't corrected,) but we can certainly publish rough estimates of the requirements for each, based on the totals for last year. That is, in fact, a very good idea.
The next workshop is this Thursday. I forget precisely what it regards, but it may be electrical or programming. I don't suppose this game of yours is anything that you wouldn't be able to play if Mr. Young were watching...? :=)
Good luck on the Analysis test, and
Good Day!

PS: The numbers I cited for the Poinsettia sale were preliminary estimates; I haven't heard the official totals yet. Thank you for participating!!
