So my friend has been ever so helpful in getting me hooked on yet ANOTHER tv show. This one? Sherlock. It is so amazing, even though I’ve only seen four of the six episodes. Yeah, well this is going to be interesting, now to watch the rest and wait for the new season. Yay sites that let me watch things at all hours of the night.
In other news, we have also been watching Sanctuary which is an amazing show as well, though it gets more hilarious and fanfiction worthy after you get to Nikola Tesla’s role in the show. Yes I said Nikola Tesla, who is played by the magnificent Jonathon Young, and is just awesome. But by all means don’t take my word for it you should go watch it for yourself and fall in love with Teslen like I did. (yes for those of you who know what that means, I do ship Teslen. I also ship Henry/Tesla though I ship Teslen more)
Well for now time to go back to puttering around on the internet. Those of you reading this go watch Sherlock or Sanctuary, and no like always I was not paid for promotion so get that out of your head right now. Hm… perhaps I shall also write fanfiction like my friend is currently doing…. yup sounds good to me….
So it’s Christmas here still, and I’m extremely happy with what I got for it. I got:
- A Harry Potter T-shirt
- A new Sansa-Fuse+ MP3 player
- $30 dollars for use on the internet
- Earings: penguins and these crystal things
- A stuffed penguin that was hugging a fleece blanket.
- Extremely fuzzy socks that are blue
- Gertrude Hawk dark chocolate raspberry Santas
I intend to use the $30 on the internet for at least one Rhapsody subscription and then maybe something else… but IDK I’ll figure it out… Well anyway… Happy Christmas ALL!!! Or holidays to those who don’t celebrate Christmas. I hope your day was wonderful all the same. Finally, GERTRUDE HAWK IS THE MOST AMAZING STUFF EVERR!!!
So I just got my Pottermore Email, and I’ve made my way through the first chapter of the first book on Pottermore. It is really very interesting because some of the stuff that’s on there is interesting, and it made me have to go read the first book again. In re-reading the first book, I have discovered that Aunt Petunia is blonde. I know that I read the book before I saw the movie but the fact that they came out at the same time probably just made me think that she was brunette.
I have also started re-reading The Immortals Series by Tamora Pierce, and I noticed that Jonathan has a beard. I never noticed that before, and I never would have pictured him with a beard. So my question is, has this ever happened to anyone? Have you ever pictured a character one way, and then realized that that’s totally not how he or she is described? Comment with your answers, if you give a character name, title and author please? I’m always looking for good suggestions…
Wild Magic by Tamora Pierce
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Okay so upon re-reading this book for the third time, I came to realize that I never did a goodreads review for it. As the stars can suggest, I absolutely love this book. Why you ask? Well I don’t really know, I can’t quite put my finger on it. Well let’s start at the begining and go from there.
This is book one in The Immortals series by Tamora Pierce, who is and amazing author. It follows an funny, yet somewhat clueless at times, girl who is hiding a secret she thinks is very dangerous. And I suppose when you look at her past, it can be. But then she meets Onua, a pony collector for The Queen’s Riders of Tortall, who is sarcastic, and altogether awesome. She comes with her own pony Cloud, the only friend she has left, and comes to work for Onua.
On their way to deliver said ponies in comes a hawk, and thus the trouble begins. Now, I’m pretty much summarizing the book from this point up. So I’ll get to saying why I like it so much. One: Daine is awesome, and a wild mage. Two: Numair, the hawk that causes so much trouble, is adorable and funny. Three: Skysong is the most adorable thing in the world. Four: I love action packed books that keep me excited and laughing with every page.

I just downloaded this radio thing from http://www.last.fm and I must say it is kind of awesome. I for one like the fact that it can go into my Windows Media Player and see what songs I listen to and recommend songs based on that. I’m currently listening to Amy Lee Radio, which is playing artists in the same genre and that are similar to Amy Lee the lead singer of Evanescence. Which is kinda cool. I would totally suggest using this site if you are looking for song recommendations. Or new artist recommendations, because they also give you links as to where you can buy the mp3’s and cd’s. (It’s mostly Amazon.com but still its helpful).
It’s also great if you need inspiring music to help you write a novel (which is what I’m currently doing), but are too bored with your own music collection. I have gotten at least thre more paragraphs since I started listening to this thing. Now is that going to work for everyone? probably not. But still it’s a suggestion.
Hey so I just finished up an awesome day with some of my awesome friends. We rolled coins and played Yu-Gi-Oh cards, and Rummy. The result was me losing both games…. and us making a really weird video for my friend’s vlog which can be found at the link below. I would recommend looking for the video I don’t exactly know when it will be posted but I think it should be posted by either today or thursday. This was a fun day of relaxing during my crazy Camp Nanowrimo and editting thing. Maybe I’ll get something done later, but as of right now I’m in a relaxing kind of mood.
Well that’s all I got for now… check back later for more
The Ghoul Next Door by Lisi Harrison
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book is just as good as the first one. It continues the desperate plot to try and get the RAD’s out in the open with exciting twists and turns. I was turning pages faster than I knew I could read. From the crazy characters, to the eye oppening secrets that come out in this book. I highly recommend this book and can not wait for the next book in this series.
Now I know most people would probably think that Monster High is just another highschool drama book that isn’t that great. Well it is just a high school drama book, but it is also very funny, and I happen to love it. Why? I don’t really know, probably because I needed a pick me up book and this made me laugh. And also because I would love to step into the shoes of any of these characters.

So I am taking full advantage of the August Camp Nanowrimo, even though I just did the July Camp Nanowrimo. Why you ask? Because I had a project that needs finishing and editting. It will probably be really terrible when I go to read it, which might result in me rewriting the entire thing. I’ll be updating the word count after I edit the entire thing and continue with finishing it. You will see these updates on the side of the blog, through the word count widgets.
These word count widgets were coded by Diana Peterfreund for her website: http://www.dianapeterfreund.com , but she was gracious enough to email the coding to me and tell me how to edit them to fit my blog. Anyway, the word count widget you should direct your attention to is the one in the middle, titled Utano: A Rivalry Turns Dangerous this title is subject to change however so if it randomly changes, don’t be alarmed. If you wish to join me in my quest to make a novel you should do Camp Nanowrimo found here: http://www.campnanowrimo.org . Well have fun I must go wait for Pottermore and then poof to bed.
Oh okay I forgot something on here so I’m adding an addendum: The title that is subject to change, I’m open to suggestions so if you wanna provide some title suggestions, feel free to comment!

- made by my sister and I.
So me and my sister were bored and we decided to bake a cake. Now the baking went really well. Until it decided to completely fall apart. So we tried our best to patch it up with the frosting that we were putting on it. The result? Me making a complete mess, and ending up doing the whole thing by myself. I mananged to piece it back together quite nicely don’t you think?
Well after we had the breaking disaster, we got to frosting the rest of the cake and that’s why it’s such as train wreck because we’ve never frosted a cake before. After we finished making the chocolate cake green, we decided to split up the cake and each decorate a half of the cake. The result is what you see next to this text.
My half is the one that you see with the sign of the Deathly Hallows, the orange pawprint (meant to represent Crookshanks’ paw), and a few other things. So what do you think? Got any pics of cakes that you’ve made yourself? If so I say you post them in the comments if you can, or maybe just make a link to a pic.
