"United States of America" is a descriptor, like calling Canada "Confederated Provinces of America". America is a group of two continents, not a single country, and it kind of sucks for everyone else in North and South America that "American" describes people from the U.S.A. specifically, rather than the entire continent. "European" is anyone from Europe, "Asian" is anyone from Asia, but as a citizen of North America, I can't be called an "American". Thanks a lot, usurpers ;)

</rant>

"Canada" is actually a mispronounciation of the native word "Kanata", which if I recall correctly, actually means "village". Some European explorer (hey, it's been about 14 years since I took a history class, I don't recall his name) misunderstood, and believed the native was referring to the entire land, rather than the nearby village. Interestingly enough, there's a suburb of our nation's capital named Kanata.

</history>


I like my story better. Eh? :P

Last night I worked on building my Screaming Bell. It takes me forever to built stuff, I'm fairly picky. I also was looking for my Skaven bits, can't find them.

I still can't find those Skaven bits, but I guess that isn't such a hard thing to believe here.

I finished the Screaming Bell last night, and I've started assembling Stormvermin. I watched Battle: Los Angeles and Paul, both were very entertaining. I think Nick Frost and Simon Pegg are the greatest nerds around!

I read Battlefield Earth a long time ago, such a great book. I put off watching the movie, and I finally got around to it. I'm wondering, did any of the script writers read the book? Anyone that made that movie read the book? It was awful, I couldn't finish it.

I took a painting break last night and played some Bulletstorm and L4D. Shooting things was necessary.

Boring stuff all weekend, I just built Stormvermin while I watched movies. I seem to get awful distracted with the movies and don't get as much done as I'd like :)

The Eagle was a good movie, I liked the cultural background.

*batteries not included, watched that last night and loved it just as much as when I was a kid. I love those robots, it makes me want to scratch build one!

Last night I finally played a game with my Skaven! We played a 2500 point game, I was playing against Vampire Counts. I haven't played Fantasy in forever, and my opponent hasn't played since 5e or earlier. So we spent most of the night fumbling over rules ;) It was fun, and I learned that Warp Lightning Cannons are absolutely ridiculous.

I did some work on my Nurgle dread last night, but I've got to really pick up the pace on it. I also need to base my Death Guard that are pretty much done besides lenses. I then need to finish up my DE for Deathmatch as well!
