Wednesday, January 26th, 2011...

The snow's been piling on pretty well the past couple of hours. It was coming down when I was at the bus stop this morning at around 6:45 am, and we got out of school today around 12:30ish, so there's no DOUBT in my mind that we'll have off tomorrow. I was online yesterday on Funimation's website looking for FMA: Brotherhood DVD Sets when I made a fortunate and epic discovery. Many FMA fans know that when Edward got his State Alchemist's License, he and his brother Alphonse burned their house to the ground as a symbol of their resolve, vowing to never turn back. He carved the following words into his new pocket watch...

"Don't Forget: 3. Oct. 11"...

The discovery I made was that on Monday, October 3rd of this year, will read that EXACT date. Funimation is trying to brand it as the official "FMA Day", and is offering a sweepstakes in honor of this date by having people tell them on their site things like "What does FMA mean to you?" or "How are you honoring this day?" and other stuff like that. And you could get a shot at winning an FMA GIFT SET, complete with a messenger bag, calendar and MORE!! For more info on the site, visit the site from the following link:
