Hello fellow demigods!
Firstly, I guess I should apologise for the really really reeeaaallly late update with the halfblood list. Been really busy lately with school and what not. :/
Secondly, if you'd like to be in the half blood list, I would kindly put you there, but you have to provide me with your NAME. I've encountered cases where the name as seen in the email adress, is different from what was provided in the email itself. Therefore, I'm not taking any chances to avoid provoking / offending fellow demigods, since I know that you're probably really strong and capable of dealing great damage if provoked (yep, I'm a demigod myself)
Thirdly, I might be moving this blog to wordpress, and if you're interested, you might have to register again for updates and stuff, but rest assured, the layout on wordpress would look stunning (: I might be a child of Hermes, but I can really do art XD
I guess that's all for this update. See you guys real soon!

I haven't been exactly updating on the blog for like... 8 months perhaps? Well, I've been really busy with Examinations and Orientation. (And did you know at my school, we have 4 faculties, namely, Ares, Athena, Apollo & Artemis?)
Sounds cool, doesn't it?
And... guess what? I'm in ATHENA!
Orientation has been a blast. Can you believe it there were war games?! Basically, it was something like capture the flag, but instead of 2 teams, there were four. Instead of weapons, we had water bombs, and instead of capturing flags, we had to drench them. The team with the driest flag wins of course :) There was definitely alot of violence shown, with tackling, pushing, grabbing, scratching, screaming, intimidating...
The thing is, Ares won in the end.
Ok now about the movie, which I just watched yesterday...
Basically I felt that there were too many changes to the original plot as seen from the book, but I guess I shouldn't complain as the movie is only a mere adaptation of the book. The entire thing about a "quest for the 3 pearls" totally threw me off. I totally wanted to see Ares and Aphrodite and how Percy had to go retrieve Ares' shield. And the ride O' love, the cupids, hephaestus and his video cams and what not. hah. too bad it's cut out.
I may be blind during the movie, but where the heck was Luke's scar?! Annabeth was way to passive. Grover was good, I had to say. He was a good replica of Grover in the book. I'm sorry Percy, you're way too old ):
Another part I was definitely anticipating was how Percy was claimed by Poseidon with the green trident floating above his head. And definitely, I was like WHERE IS CLARISSE! AND THE TOILET SCENE! I can't really conclude the movie as a screwup, but Chris Columbus could have done much much better, I believe, based on what I've seen of his Harry Potter 1 & 2. Seems like I've over estimated his abilities for this one.
Another thing about the movie was Riptide. They didn't even introduce it as Anaklusmos or Riptide. It was just plain, old, PEN. And you were supposed to uncap it! Not click it!
I'm definitely looking forward to Grover in the wedding dress of the second movie (if there will be one at all). Please please please, do not tell me it's being cut out. I'd be disappointed if the entire quest of rescuing Grover and obtaining the golden fleece to save camp was changed to like Percy's quest to destroy Polyphemus. I was quite annoyed Thalia, the pine tree was not introduced in the first movie though. I understood the time constraint though, so please please PLEASE introduce Thalia in the next movie! If not everyone will be like "Hey the tree's a person!"
I believe if I continue ranting about the movie, I'll spoil it for everyone (or maybe I already did), so I shall stop here.
Next up for the site:
Change of music, hopefully.
Stay tuned folks and thank you for the support!
PS I apologize for updating the camp half blood list a little late :)

I've FINALLY READ PERCY JACKSON AND THE LAST OLYMPIAN.
(sniggers at my on futile attempt to keep this blog alive!)
So currently, I'm thinking of a quiz to include demigods of the minor gods & Hades (yes, who is, by the way, NOT a minor god)
The fifth book is really awesome. My favourite was the 4th until... the 5th came and it was UNBELIEVABLE. YES.
Throughout the whole series, I would feel that the 2nd was the worse. It was kind of boring... perhaps cause I didn't like seas with Scylla & Charybdis. haha. The 1st would be better than the 2nd, and 3rd would be better than the 1st. makes sense? I think so.
Hurrah to Percy Jackson who was made a change in the demigod world :)

+ The Last Olympian +
I was so determined to get it on Tuesday.
But I sort of went there and the bookstore dude was like "Not in stock yet. You may wanna try next week". So, A couple of us, Belinda (daughter of Apollo), Abigail (daughter of Aphrodite) and Brenda (daughter of Athena) WERE SO HEATBROKEN. D: Anyway, just as we were walking out, I CAUGHT SIDE OF THE DEMIGOD FILES ( I didn't wanna buy it first). Just to get me happy again, I decided to buy it!
At least there's something to tide me over until the fifth book.
AND GUESS WHAT? Belinda just texted me that she's found the book at some bookstore!
I'll be going down to snag it. >8) Goodbye!

I CAN'T WAIT TO BUY PERCY JACKSON: THE LAST OLYMPIAN!
Tomorrow I'm like going to Borders bookstore after some museum trip. WHEEE!!
And then I'll snag the book, and probably read it in class.
Oh, and for the record, I will still add people on the halfblood list ;) I just don't post that often. Ok I admit I post RARELY. =x
Anyway I've been working on a new layout for the site. If any dude has any ideas( i.e. what this site should also include / how to have online capture the flag!) please feel free to email me and I'll try to... um... accomodate everyone if possible. :D
Or maybe we should come up with like a Cabin points system that will arouse more interest in this site. Of course, I, will be kept very busy... but... it's all
FOR THE LOVE OF PERCY JACKSON!!
Ok, guess I gotta blast. Have a Physics Test to study!!

THE FIFTH BOOK IS COMING OUT SOON! WEEHEEE!!
I really can't wait for it. It's coming to Singapore on 5/5/09 and I really hope I can be the first few to get it.
I'm sorry if this blog is um kind of dead but don't worry! I'm constantly brainstorming up ideas on how to incooperate a "Capture - the - flag" online for this site. If you have any ideas, you may email me!
I'm going to change the blog song to, to METAL :) hope you guys like Nightwish as much as I do! hahaha.

I just finished Percy Jackson 4.
IT WAS WAY AWESOME. I really hate myself for not being able to get hold of it earlier. arghhh D:
My favourite part was the awesome birthday party and Percy fighting the sumo (antaeus was it?) I loved the way antaeus got tangled in the chains and got sliced into dust. MWAHAHA. *harbouring evil thoughts*
I thought Nico was uber cool. Especially the soldier summoning. I was like WOAH. He did camp half blood a great favor.
With that I may include another part of the web, known as ZEUS'S FIST. or something :D.
I think Poseidon is so cool la. Even if he fathered the SUMO. haha. I like to address antaeus as SUMO. It makes me laugh =x. Pardon my weird sense of humour :D
I'm really looking forward to the fifth book. I want to know how Percy makes his decision and all. I want to see Luke's (or rather Kronos in Luke's body) horrendous ending (mwahaha. more evil thoughts!!)
All in all, Battle of the labyrinth was an awesome book. So if there are anymore Percy Jackson fans that HAVE NOT YET GET YOUR HANDS ON IT,
HEAD TO THE NEAREST BOOKSTORE / LIBRARY AND GET IT NOWWW!!!
(before the laistrygonians do =x)

I can't help but feel inferior.
See. The Library just had Percy Jackson 4 out some time this week! And I just borrowed it. Argh feel like slapping the library. =x
Exams are over at my school and let's say I did alright.
Word of caution to all half bloods:

Alright Demigods. I haven't posted for a long long long long time. O:
Anyway, alot of Demigods our there are asking me how to get on the list. Let me make it clear here:
To get on the list, please email your name and your quiz results to firstname.lastname@example.org with Camp Half Blood in the subject line (or I may just treat it as spam :/)
I've finally came up with a song for the blog. But it's kind of random since It's from Final Fantasy VII OST. This blog is currently dead, but I'll still update the Half-blood list accordingly. Sadly there won't be much more stuff added. If I'm free enough, I'll be working on a new skin.
Oh and we do linking. So if you wish to be linked in the half blood list, also, email me at email@example.com with camp half blood in the subject line.
Last thing, Many of you are emailing me that you wish to be in 2 cabins? Well If you can't decide, I'll just have to put you in the Cabin 11.
Thanks for reading this notice (:

Hey people! It's been long..... Oh well anyway. Sorry no quizes in this post. Just updates. I'm recently working on a quiz after reading the 3rd book. Yeah... I'm slow I know. Just can't seem to find the book in local bookstores. I bought mine in Thailand lol.

Well, there hasn't been much response on the Celebration thingy. Yeah, so we'll be going with Walker James from Cabin 11's Idea!
-"IS YOUR FRIEND A CYCLOPS" QUIZ
I'm currently working on the quiz. Will post it ASAP.
Is there a really mean teacher in school? Wondering that he/she might be a monster? Do the quiz below to find out! ( only remember the answers for questions 2-6)
1. Is your teacher a male or a female?
a. Male [for the later questions, only choose options (a) & (b)]
b. Female [for the later questions, only choose options (c) & (d)]
2. Describe his or her built.
a. Big and Muscular
b. Big and Scary
c. Normal and petite
d. Obese and Big.
3. What does he or she usually wear?
a. Really really tight shirt and pants.
c. A black leather jacket, without fail everyday.
d. Really Glam things eg. beaded necklaces, bracelets etc
4. What's his or her age?
b. Looks old in size, but young in nature.
d. she always says age is a womens' secret.
5. Favourite kind of punishment?
a. A game of dodgeball.
b. Dipping hands in Lava
c. Public Caning, she always seems to bring a cane along.
d. Taking care of a vicious Chihuahua.
6. What subject does he or she teaches?
a. Gym/ Physical Education aka PE
b. Science (but he is very clumsy, always.)
d. No idea, she just lounges around in school. Never seen her in classes before.
Scroll down and be prepared...
Mostly As: Laistrygonians, aka Canadians. They are famous for punishing pupils with dodgeball games in school. They treat Gym/PE lessons as a chance to toture the poor
How to defend yourself
If you really wish to avoid them, the only way is to fight back like a half-blood. Running away will only make Gym/PE lessons hell for other mortal students. But if you think you're too weak, train at Camp Half-Blood first. Return when ready.
Mostly Bs: Cyclops. Cyclops are menacing in nature(except for Tyson) and very clumsy. The
reason they are teaching Science is because they expect to blow the whole school up during experiments(especially chemistry) due to their clumsiness.
How to defend yourself
It is pretty hard for a young half-blood to fight a cyclops, running away is not a good option as the other mortal students will be in grave danger. Try this: The best defence is a good offence. Bring along Ambrosia and Nectar, along with first aid kits, medicine and masks.
Mostly Cs: Fury, aka the Kindly ones. The canes that always "seems" to be with them is actually a whip, their weapon. The leather jacket is actually their black leathery wings.
How to defend yourself
To defend yourself, make sure you're armed with at least one weapon (a sword of celestial bronze would be perfect). Next, when the fury is not aware, entangle her in her own whip, followed by a slash of your sword, and see it dissolve.
Mostly Ds: Echidna and her Chimera. When she asks you to look after her chihuahua (which is
actually a Chimera), she would be hoping that the Chimera bites you and poisons you to death.
How to defend yourself
Since even Percy Jackson can't kill Echidna, don't even think about it. Always get Ambrosia and Nectar ready when she asks you to take care of her Chihuahua. Try to avoid getting into trouble and walking pass her. If you really have to walk pass her, always have a group or 3 friends with you (just in case 1 gets killed, you have backup). She will try to get you into detention. By then, complain to the principal with witnesses to prove you innocent. Finally, see her get sacked. If she dosen't, just remember the tips above. Oh, and always get a weapon ready.
Wish to know more information about the above monsters?

What if I have equal answers? You're the child of Hermes! Jack-Of-All-Trades!
Ps.Why is there no Artemis(Cabin 8) and Hera(Cabin 2)?
There are 4 cabins meant to be empty, Cabin1,2,3 & 8. Cabins 1 & 3 as Zeus and Poseidon was one of the "Big 3" and their child would be much more powerful than other Half-Bloods. But in the story, these two gods had had children, that's the reason why it's in the choices.
As for Hera, she couldn't probably have children as she was the god of marriage.
Artemis also swore to be a maiden forever.
So how did you do? Email your name and results to: firstname.lastname@example.org and see your results get posted in the" Half-blood list"! PS. put "Camp Half-Blood" in your subject line!
