I am baaack. ;D

Why so silent, good monsieurs?
Did you think that I had left you for good?
Have you missed me, good monsieurs?
I have written you an opera.
Here, I bring the finish score....

Um-- sorry!
But I am back. Google & Blogger both sort of ... blocked me out of my account. BUT I FIXED IT! Yar.

So now, I shall continue to blog like I did before. Yesh.
So what's happened since I left?



that's right, I've been gone thaaat long!
So what did I think of it?

Well ... IT WAS STUNNING. That's what. I honestly loved it. I've never cried harder when reading a book than after this book. So many things ... aahh ... I'm scared to post spoilers, because this is such a big thing (I do reckon most people have read it already, but I just don't want to...).

I got my Mockingjay necklace! :D It's beaautifulll!!!!! <3
I've written a whole lot more stuff.
Eaten much gelato.
I discovered I had won a poetry competition
My novel reached the fourteen thousands.
I got new converse.
A blog got made about the amazing Young Writer's Group of Shelfari!

I'll blog some more later, but right now I've got some stuff to do. :)

Why hello there!

I am not in a typing sort of mood today ... I keep making mistakes, and therefore abusing my backspace key.

I just thought I should tell y'all (that was my nonexistent southern accent there...) that I'm not dead. I've just been asleep. A lot. And at school. And reading. And nurturing my growing coffee addiction. [CAFFIENE!]

But, I am not dead. Thank golly goshness...

My friend Madde is here!

Type something, Madde:


WOAH! That is literary genius, Madde.

So ... guess what I bought online the other day?



I said GUESS, not 'wait for me to tell you!'

Just kidding. I got this:

It hasn't arrived yet, but when it does I will be sure to tell you. If anybody is actually interested in this ... =P
So, that's all for now folks.

Phantom of the Opera

Oh wow ...

Last night, I watched Phantom of the Opera, and I am ... gobsmacked. It was a delight: the costumes, the songs, the characters, the very idea is stunning. I adore it.

For those who don't know, it is a movie based on the play, based on a book. it is set in Paris, a bit over a hundred years ago. Underneath the Opera house, there is a legendary Phantom, whose face he covers with a mask. He teaches this girl, Christine, to sing. Christine thinks she has been visited by the Angel of Music. He falls in love with her, but she is also in love with this guy called Raoul or something ... anyway, a lot of stuff happens and I love it!!
My favourite song from it is Masquerade.
Paper faces on parade
Every face a different shade

The atmosphere is just brilliant. I adore the whole thing!
If you haven't seen it, I recomend you go to your nearest Dvd rental ... place ... and borrow it now!! Immediately!
Or else.


Yesterday I went to my friend's house, and, as usual, went home with a book to read: Shiver, by Maggie Stiefvater. I'm only onto page 107, but I Love it!!!

It's a romance story, about a girl who lives near these woods, with wolves in it. She watches the wolves; she always has. One of the wolves watches back.


The girl, Grace, discovers that the wolves are werewolves, who turn into humans during the summer, and- um, sorry if I just gave you a million spoilers. Ok, I'm going to put a spoiler warning at the top of this part of the post. :)

***End of spoilers***

Anyway, I haven't finished it yet, but it's definetely going to be one of my favourite books. It has the most amazing ... atmosphere to it. It's beautiful.

I'll write more once I've finished it. :)

Twilight: a ... review?

Sooo ... fellow blogians! Let us be glad, let us rejoicify--
Sorry. I'll stop singing Wicked songs now.
I've been singing songs from Wicked all day today. It's, like, sing-Wicked-Song-Day for me... :D
Ok, so, back onto topic:

I said that when I finished Twilight I'd write a review, right?

Well I shouldn't have said that, because I'm horrible at writing book reviews. I just ... can't organize what I write, it just mostly comes out, in a big wave of words... SO! Instead, I'm going to make two lists. One for things I did like and things I didn't like. Otherwise, it will ... not even be half a review. This is a half review.
The List:


-The plot was a fairly good idea. I'm not sure if I'd call it well-thought out or not, but it was a really good idea.

-ALICE CULLEN. She's awesome. Probably the best (so-far) developed character out of them all. She's ... cool. Very cool.

-The action scenes, like, near the end in the ballet studio are great!!!


-BELLA: I hatehatehated her. She's just so- *ugh* -whiney, and stupid, and generally just annoying!

-Edward. Weird. He's not as bad as Bella, but I don't like him.
-The fact that vampires sparkle in the sun. Can you say 'WEIRD'?. I mean, like, what. the. hell?
What sort of idea is that?!

-Stephenie Meyer's style of writing really, really BUGS me. She just goes on and on about ... every freaking thing! I love description, but that was mucchh more monotonous than description!! To me description is metaphors and similes and awesomeadjectives. NOT ... not ... not whatever you call this!

So, there you have it! My opinion on Twilight!!!

Ok, so I had this deal with my parents (...well, they bribed me...) that if I can touch type 40 words per minute, they will buy me a laptop. GUESS WHAT I JUST DID???!!!!

I. typed. 41 WORDS IN ONE MINUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LAPTOP, here. I. COME!!!!!!!

Ok, so I have no idea what sort I'm getting or anything, but here is a picture of one, just because. :D


So ... I've had a lot of fun today!
Know why? No?

Weeelll .... I found THE coolest hat, buried in the depths of our hat cupboard (yes, we have a hat cupboard ... sort of). So I've been wearing it around, feeling oh-so-cool. My entire family is insanely jealous of my stylin' hat. I suppose I should be modest, but who can be modest with this stunning object placed atop my head? It is truly a spiffing hatical.

So, I thought I should bless you with the sight of this darrrling hat.

I had a lotttt of fun blacking out my face in above picture! Like, like in newspapers! :D Only I bet they don't use paint.
Isn't it, just, the coolest hat ... ever?

Thought so. ;)
