Making the rice dumplings:
Put rice flour in a bowl and add warm water. Knead the dough well (or just use a metal spoon if you want to). Make small round dumplings (the size of rubber balls).

The Foxling-Chapter TwoI DO NOT OWN ANYTHING TMNT RELATED!!The Foxling-Chapter Two10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Summary: The turtles bring home Rinji the Foxling and explain what happened to Splinter, and right away they notice something off about the little creature.
"You sure you know where you're going, Donnie??" Leo asked as they trekked mile after mile through the sewer tunnels. "I don't remember any of this at all." They had been walking along the sewer tunnels for well over three hours, and Michelangelo was still holding onto the creature he called a 'Foxling'
"Well that's because we spent most of our time zip-lining down a pipe," Don replied, glaring at Mikey.
"Hey, it was fun, wasn't it?!" Mike shrugged. Their new little pet Rinji moaned and squirmed in his arms, curling up into a ball against his chest. "You're so cute when you sleep, you know that??" He smiled and rubbed her head.
Raph rolled his eyes and groaned. "I can't believe we're dragging that thing with us back home."
"Stop calling her a 'thing', Raph," Mikey spun around. "How many t

The Foxling-Chapter FourI DO NOT OWN ANYTHING TMNT RELATED!!The Foxling-Chapter Four10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Summary: the other turtles begin to bond with Rinji.
Rinji woke up with something large and heavy on her back. She shifted her head to see a long green snake with three long stubs at the end draped over her body. Turning her head the other way, she noticed the green snake was connected to Michelangelo's body; it was his arm, whom its owner was still fast asleep. She wiggled herself free, sat up and stretched. She slept soundly last night, more peaceful than she ever had before, and she wondered why. Then she remembered. Quickly yet quietly she leaped off of Mikey's bed and paced on all fours into Raphael's room.
Peeking into the room Rinji saw Raph fast asleep in his bed, with one arm and leg hanging over the edge. She saw a tiny turtle fast asleep next to him on a nightstand, and she prowled on her belly over to it to see the smaller turtle. Standing on her tip toes she got a better view of the turtle. It was a regular one, not as big as Rap

School year 1960 I was in high school,12th grade, so I was a senior. I had a pretty nice first day, but it got even better when I met George. He had dark hair, cute British accent, and a nice face. He seemed to be quiet, like me, but sarcastic. He was dreamy. He was new at my school, and I tried to make sure he noticed me. We had English class together.
"Attention class! Your assignment today is to pick one person to partner up with and choose an important person in history. You will choose your partner today and choose your person to do the paper on. You may have to work at home with your partner, but I assure you, you have plenty of time." Mrs. Maureen said to the class. I was shocked and excited. I could not believe what I was hearing, this was the perfect chance to get to know George.

First, I recieved an email about a week or so, ago, from a website called 'Acess Now', where I signed a petition again ACTA.
The email was called: 'We won again!' -
It was speaking of how all our hard work petitioning had payed off (I would post the whole thing up here, but I have a feeling that no one's going to read through the whole thing. So, if any one wants to, I'll post it up here, just let me know in the comments secetion.)
However, I just looked on the BBC news website and found an artical:
'Email and web use 'to be monitored' under new laws' -
Yes, you heard!
It bascially talks about a what we have been fighting against!
The beginning of the artical says:

The next morning I woke up early, put my hair in curls. I was so excited about seeing George that day.
"Grace!" George called to me from his seat in the middle of the bus. I ran to his side as he gave me the window seat.
"How are you doing love?" George asked me as I slumped in our seat.
"Tired." I replied, but before I knew it, I was asleep, holding onto George's shoulders. My house was about 7 minutes away from school, not counting stops, so I got a good 11 minutes on George's pillow-shoulder.
"Grace... Grace, love, wake up." George said shifting and shaking me as I woke up.
"I'm sorry," I replied shyly, "I'm so t-"
"No need to worry. Let's go to class." He replied as he grabbed my hand and we jumped off the bus and

"You like Elvis?" George asked me.
"Yes! He's great." I replied. George knew a lot about him, so I knew this project wouldn't be very hard.
"Do you miss your old school, George?" I asked George as we wrote.
"Not too much, because my old school didn't have you." He said as I blushed and giggled a bit.
"That's sweet, George."
"It's only the truth. Say, how long does thing little assignment they call a paper have to be?" George asked as I pulled out my paper from Mrs. Maureen that said, "Your first English assignment must be 5 pages long."

I just recieved an e-mail from the Avaaz team;
~"In days, the European Commission will try a last ditch attempt to revive ACTA. But if we intervene now this global attack on Internet freedom will collapse.
We are so close to winning -- our 2.4 million strong petition has stunned politicians across Europe and halted the censors. Now the European Commission is on the back foot and hoping the Court of Justice will give ACTA the greenlight by presenting a very narrow legal question that is sure to receive a positive answer.
But if we all raise our voices now we can ensure the Court looks at all the legal impacts of ACTA, and releases an opinion that tells the truth about ACTA's attack on our rights. Sign the urgent petition to European Commission President José Manuel Barroso to call on the Court to tell the whole truth!"~
Here is our next move to insure our chances:

Democracy? Update from AccesNow (petition).Not forgotting about Palestine, I want to turn your attention to the ACTA problem once again...unfortunately.Democracy? Update from AccesNow (petition).2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Few days ago INTA recommended european deputies to reject ACTA during voting which will take place 4th July in European Parliment. But the problem is that The European Comission wants to ignore this (!), what means that even if European Parliment is against ACTA, The European Comission will implement ACTA anyway. And so, the democration in EU appeared to be just a fairytale for masses.
This who leads whole this madness is Karel de Guht, some kind of an ACTA-lover.
Two important updates from AccesNow:
FIRST, the final vote on ACTA (the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement) is happening in just two days, and we're planning to blanket the entrance of the European Parliament to ensure MEPs vote "No!" But we need your help.
We're going up against a powerful, resource-rich pro-ACTA camp, who are in a last-ditch effort persuading MEPs to vote "Yes." ACTA has global

Where do you get your Grell contacts?
I get all of my contacts from a company caleld Exotic Lenses http://www.exoticlenses.com/. I have never had an issue with any of their products, and believe me, I have tried several other companies out there. But Exotic Lenses products have never irritated my eyes, and they're so comfortable that half the time I forget I'm even wearing contacts. The style I use to always use for Grell are "Louis" (those pale green ones), but I recently switched over to a new style called "Mad Hatter" (as seen in my Ophelia pic).
Where do you get your sharp Grell teeth?
The veneers set that I use is from a site called Dental Distortions http://www.dentaldistortions.com/, and the style is actually called "Grell". They are a bit

"Excuse me." The bus driver said.
"Yes." I replied.
"Mr. Harrison must have a bus note to get off with you." The bus driver insisted as my heart stopped and George looked at me puzzled. What was I to do? Then I had an idea, so I took an old piece of paper, got a pencil and wrote, "Mr. Harrison gets off with me." I handed it to my bus driver.

This past semester I have buckled down and have started to really think about art as a career and not just as a pastime anymore. I think this partially stems from the transition from high school to college. It's a strange thing being thrown into 'the adult world' and having to think about everything in a whole new light. For me, I had my mind made up that I wanted to be an artist since I could conceive the concept of having a job. I had never swayed in that decision until I was faced with the reality of the art world. It is a CRUEL, COMPETITIVE, CHALLENGING, TIME-CONSUMING in
