Also of testing the new look! ^_^
Hi gang. I know, I know, it's been a long time since my last ramble, yet again. Believe it or not, there was a valid reason for that. In addition to the insane amount of stuff I've had to do in the past month, the past 2 times I've gotten near the end of writting a massive, tell-all, ramble, something would happen to destroy it. At that point I would be so angry and tired, I'd give up. Sooo here's a quick recap of the past month:

  • Graduated High School with beucoup honors
  • Broke a heart
  • Went to Academic Orientation at State
  • Played a game of Warhammer 40k against Bharroth's Khronate army and almost beat him
  • Went to Meijers at midnight and riding in a shopping cart
  • Went to a Graduation party
  • Saw Revenge of the Sith again
  • Been playing more Shadow Run
  • Beat up my Printer
  • Had a Graduation party
  • Went to Cedar Point with friends
  • Got my first traffic ticket
  • Went to Cedar Point with family
  • Got my purse stolen
  • Went to more graduation Parties
  • Got a puppy
  • Wrote this ramble

 Yeeep, that's about it right there. If you guys want details on any of this, why not start discussing using MachVergil.com's snazzy new forum system?! In the mean time, allow me to revile you with a fun story from Cedar Point:

 I got up really early and went to Cedar Point with a nice group of friends, folks from MSU and my boyfriend and his brother. A splended time was had by all, but the best part was the trickery that ensued. For the past couple of years, I have freaked people out by telling them my actuall age. When I say I'm 18, people tend to think that I am 15 or younger! It's usually really annoying, but I decided to capitolize on it. All over the park, they have this game where you have a person try to guess your age(within 2 years), your weight (within x number of lbs) or your birthmonth (within 2 months). If the person guesses wrong, you win a prize. Usually its a bad idea to have someone guess your age, but I  wanted to see if I could fool a professional at their own game. You see, while it might be a common mistake made by the average stanger, to have a proffessional think I am 3-5 years younger than I actually am, takes a bit more planning. It started with my hair, C-chan put it up in little pig-tail buns, to complement this (and to make it easier to walk around with) I wore a plush Snoopy fanny-pak around my waist. We approached the game with my standing in such a way that... let's just say consealed some of my more mature anatomical features, and her starting things by offering to have the person guess her weight. After she won her prize, she turned to me and said "Gracie? Why don't you try?" I then put on a great performence. I used a higher pitched voice and pretended to be somewhat shy and embarressed. C-chan succeeded in "persuading" me into having them guess my age. The woman running the game looked at me and said "Are you sure? With you being as young as you are, I think you'd want me to guess something else." I told her age and she wrote down her prediction. She then asked me how old I was. I then stood up stright revealing my figure, and spoke in my normal, confident voice "18 years old." Her jaw dropped. "What the-?... how did you?!" She guessed 15, and said that she guessed higher than she though I was. When she realized she'd been duped she couldn't believe it, to which my friend smiled and explained that I was a drama club kid. I chose a big blue turtle for my prize and the woman still couldn't believe it, as we walked off to get our kudos from our waiting party, the park worker wnet on to tell in surpize to her co-workers how she'd been "Punk'd". XD

Okay, with that, all of my old artwork from pervious MachVergil.com's are up, so go peruse them. I'm going to be gone on vacation for a week. When I return, hopefully I'll be able to get my scanner to cooperate, as i have a stack of stuff that I want to get up. ^_^ Until next time play Guild Wars: "Where the men are men, and the women are run-way models."
