|lord_iceberg||08:23 pm - Upcoming Weeks|
What an interesting few weeks it has been, with Iceberg completely forgetting to post information about the recent different weeks in the Dei-ian Week Calendar. Just so as you know:
The week after Slash Week was Limerick Week a time for honouring our favourite little five-lined poems.
The week after that, (March 6-12) was Lunch Week a time to celebrate an entirely spectacular meal, and also a time for big lunches.
March 13-17 was Green Day Week, which we simply could not go without having. It is a real pity I forgot to post about that one. Ah well. Rock out to one of their songs in remembrance for this missed week.
Last week was Logic Week. Logic puzzles, logical thinking, logical food, it's all fun and logical.
This week, though we're halfway through it, is New Age Week, dedicated to all things New Age, Mind, Body and Soul, candles, incense, new age music, etc.
Because I will forget:
Next week is Chocolate Week. It is your council-given duty to stuff yourself senseless with chocolate. Do us all proud. :)
And the week after that is Zombie Week, where we honour our living-impaired friends who have been the subject of so much entertainments. Draw a zombie in your diary, watch a zombie movie, or a zombie-related Simpsons episode. Have fun!
(P.S.: There are still slots left for suggestions!)

|lord_iceberg||06:53 pm - Slash Week|
This week is Slash Week! Although a speech of this nature would probably be better left to somebody like Astrid, who has written several ingenious pieces of prose involving it, I will endeavor to do my best.
This was a week that we really could not bypass, not so much for me, but for other people. Which reminds me, the calendar is still not full, (although we do have a complete term 1.) So, suggestions, anybody?

|lord_iceberg||06:32 pm - Space Week|
Greetings! Last week was Guitar Week, this week is Space Week! It is the week where we celebrate the wonderful thing that is outer space! Some things you could do to commemorate this week are:
-Watch an episode of a space-related program on television (eg Stargate, Farscape, Futurama.)
-Read a Science Fiction Novel
-Launch yourself into space.
-Draw little planets and stars al over your school diary.

|lord_iceberg||05:03 pm - Sarcasm Week|
This week, beginning today, is Sarcasm Week. The week where we honour an entirely respectable form of wit. As says the Book of Dei: "Sarcasm is both mighty and cool. Use whenever possible." Make the most of it, chaps.

|lord_iceberg||12:30 pm - Worst-Case-Scenario Week|
Greetings! It is now Monday . . . well, it isn't really Monday, it's Saturday, and I'm just dating this entry forward to make it look like Monday because I can't be on my computer on Monday because I will be at Coffin Bay.
So, this week (beginning Monday the 9th) is Worst-Case-Scenario Week. It is the week where we honour Murphy's laws and all the laughs they gave us, comprehend what could go very wrong indeed, and prepare for it.
To send you into this week, I have two excerpts from 'The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Guide,' which I shall be taking on my travels, just in case.
( How to Survive if Your Parachute Fails to OpenCollapse )
( How to Wrestle Free From an AlligatorCollapse )
Wasn't that enlightening? Stay alive, everyone! :)

|lord_iceberg||04:12 pm - Thinking Week|
Greetings, Dei-ians! I'm not sure if anybody reads this journal anymore. Please let somebody be reading this. But anyway. For lack of things to do with the absurd amounts of time I have to do with a lack of things, I have created a Dei-ian weeks calendar. Sometime last year. This some of you will already know.
This week, the first week of the year, (being almost finished with 2 and a half days to go) is Thinking Week.
Some Things to Think About
-Whether you have made a New Year's Resolution
-Whether there is any reason to make a New Year's Resolution
-Whether there is any reason to keep a New Year's Resolution
-Why Iceberg rambles on about New Year's Resolutions
-The imminent risk of a Bird Flu epidemic
-The amount of absolute crap that people buy on eBay
-Which movies were the best movies of 2005
-Which movies are going to be the best movies of 2006
-What else is worthy of having an entire week dedicated to it on the Dei-ian Calendar.
Remember, we still have free slots left. I would love suggestions. Astrid may also wish to know that, without asking her advice, I have dedicated weeks to many things that she approves of, including geekery, Green Day, Slash, Fanfiction and Piracy. Just because these things are as good as she says they are.
You may also be interested to know that this year is the year of the Walnut, according to the Dei-ian year Calendar. If that means very little to you, join the club. :)
I'll be back next week with another of these posts!

|lord_iceberg||06:24 pm - CALLING ALL DEIIANS!!|
Greetings, Council of Dei! It has come to my attention that our councilly activities have come to a standstill! I would really like to get the newsletter going, and I am working on getting a copy of the program 'Pages,' which will make things a hundred times easier. But I'll have to secure a copy from a friend, as my dad won't give it to me illegally.
I would like FEEDBACK for a THIRD REVOLUTIONIZATION, (otherwise known as a revolution,) of the newsletter. I'm looking for ideas, who should be our new columnists, (thinking about getting interviews with people outside the council,) perhaps some fiction or poetry (and by all means fanficiton,) from Astrid or myself or ANYBODY ELSE for that matter! We want to make this the kind of newsletter you can sit down and amuse yourself reading!
So come on! Hit me with ideas!!!!
Your loving friend,

|lord_iceberg||08:56 pm - Profile Horoscope Thingies|
Here they are! The profiles for each of the 12 years in the Dei-ian Year Calendar. Note that, like most other horoscopey thingies, they are are not always correct, so don't expect them to be!
Squid: The squid is happy, humorous and fun to be with. Squids may not be the biggest, most popular or the most important, but they are not usually bothered by this. The squid group is one of the most social groups on the calendar, and enjoy talking and playing with friends.
Dishmop: Dishmops are quite mature and helpful people, who involve great effort in everything they do. The dishmop can be quite reliant on certain things to help them perform to the best of their abilities, but otherwise are generally quite independent.
Pigeon: Pigeons are high-fliers, and are prone to success. The pigeon sometimes thinks slightly differently to others, but this can give them a different and very valuable view on situations. Pigeons hide their talents well, and can be mistaken for ordinary people.
Parsnip: The parsnip is a talented all-rounder, who can always offer good advice. When socialising with serious people, they can blend in very well with their varied social skills, but still get along very happily with the less serious. The talents and opinions of the parsnip are not always appreciated, but they are always valuable nonetheless.
Electron: Electrons are easily excited, and can brighten up anyone’s day, The electron is an agreeable person, and is not afraid to change their opinion or try something new. Electrons cope well with change, and blend in well with large social crowds.
Walnut: Walnuts are firm, strong people, and are not easily shifted; nor are their minds easily changed. They are extremely helpful in complicated situations because of their ability to always remain calm and come out with the simplest answer,
Tapeworm: The tapeworm is often reliant on other people, but that does not mean it is a parasite. Tapeworms are stuck down firmly, hard to demoralise or beat. They also have a knack for winning at games, and possess unusual skills that are admired by other people.
Bagpipe: Bagpipes are firm people, and never go down without a fight. They are not afraid to make a mistake, and won’t go back on promises or decisions. They are extremely reliable, but can also be extremely intimidating. Despite this, Bagpipes are still sensitive and considerate inside.
Grater: Graters are perhaps the most useful people on the calendar, and can offer advice and skill in most any situation. They can help to take complicated things and simplify them, and thus are very good at explaining things. They are also sharp, and they think quickly, making them very hard to trick.
Bookmark: The bookmark is often a neat, tidy person, though their personality can vary greatly. Bookmarks are quite knowledgeable, and are happy to help people out in various situations. They are also good listeners, and quite attentive and polite when spoken to.
Lens: The lens is known for having a different view on situations, and although this view is not always appreciated by more closed minded people, it is highly valued by those who are willing to accept it. They are good at twisting words to serve another purpose, and are therefore very persuasive people.
Holepunch: Holepunches are powerful people, and often make good leaders in teams. They are often cast aside as being useless by particular people, but are graciously accepted back when it is realised just how useful a holepunch is. Holepunches are attentive to detail, but they can very easily ruin something big when annoyed, so keep on their good side!

Yo ho ho and a punnet of strawberries! Inspired by the chinese calendar system, (year of the monkey, horse, flea etc.) I have created a Dei-ian calendar of the years. It is featured below:

Alright, ladies and gentlemen, what's shakin'? Nothing is shaking, unfortunately, so lets start shaking. Shake, my pretties, shake!
Anyway, I do apologise for my absence. Nothing much has been going on, alas, but school (ACK) and other such nonsense. So, if anyone has any ideas for Council stuff to do, that would be awesome.
