I predict that in one or two weeks, my sentences in my novel will look like this:

His voice stiff and harsh with stiff harshness that sounded stiff and harsh. She didn’t like the stiff and harsh way he spoke; to her, it was too stiff and harsh and told her the harsh danger would soon come her way.

Word Count: 42

Hope that didn’t sound stiff or harsh.

Blog Action Day?

So I opened up my Brainpop app to watch my daily dose of Brainpop today. Today’s topic: blogs. Above the movie, it said, Blog Action Day. I wondered what that was, so I googled it. Apparently, on October 15, a bunch of people blog out one topic. This years theme is water, according to plenty of sites. So, I’m going to talk about water in the spirit of Blog Action Day. (coincidence I came home craving water.)

Water. We need it. We use it to survive. It’s the thing that refreshes us. It’s the thing that’s 70% of our bodynis made of. It’s the thing that you gulp by the gallon after P.E. Its the thing that has been cherished by cultures. Technically, water rules us. If it decides to disappear, the world turns into a brown bulk without life. If it decides to randomly appear from thin air, our environment is full of plentiful plants and green happiness. Pandas get their water from bamboo plants, which have juicy “meat” inside.

Okay I’m done.

Can Openers, Hangers, and Ice Cube Trays Confuse Kids

I read a newspaper article titled “Can Openers, Hangers, and Ice Cube Trays Confuse Kids” in English. It says that the older generation is raising “nincompoops”. Thats seriously what it said. In my defense, adults have had more practice with the confusing contraptions of can openers, so they understand the strange machines. Plus, the hanger’s purpose is questionable since clothes fall off it anyway and ice tube trays effectiveness is inadequate. The newer generation just think through stuff and have learned how to develop independent thinking processes and are more adapt to questioning the way everything works.

Quinan wants me to play video games with him while I’m trying to have fun on the computer. I said no because I’m having fun on the computer. Now he’s trying to bribe me. I wonder where he got that from. Don’t say “Jensen” and I’ll give you a lego! Just kidding!

Can I post short entries, or do they have to be really long like a journal? Because I don’t have a long enough attention span.

Momento da falha do telefone

Yesterday, my sister was at a homecoming football game. I texted her to see what quarter the game was at and the estimated time she would be home. You got to understand, I have to pay for each text, so I don’t like to text all the time. And on my phone, you just type each key and it guesses which word it is. So I was trying to say “Is the game almost over?” but I couldn’t text in almost almost because it was putting in alonst. I was yelling at my phone and had to put in something weird like, “Is it close over?” After I sent the text, I tried to see what was up so I found an option for the predictive text that my phone has. I guess someone set it on portugues. Maybe that’s why it kept trying to say nonsense and not real English words….

My dad showed me the video that showed all of Apples new products: the new nano, shuffle, iTouch, and Apple TV. They all looked pretty cool. Smaller, touch screen, and for the tv, renting and buying more movies and tv shows at a cheaper price. But I want my own iPad more than a new iPod. I would do a lot more stuff on an iPad than those iPods. Yeah, my mom has one, but I don’t always get to use it when I want and stuff. So now I’m saving. Sigh. I don’t get much money either, considering I’m not quite at the legal age for jobs. All I got is money from the few, and very few, people who hire me to babysit. I have $425 to save, and I’m not very good at saving. I had $80 as the largest I ever saved. And I shopped once, and the next time I counted money I was down to, like, $10 or less.

Wish me luck…

Abraham Lincoln

Okay, I thought President Lincoln was pretty cool. I’m reading a bunch of his quotes, and now I realize he’s awesome! His quotes are pretty funny, and he definitely is Honest Abe; all of his quotes are quite true. Here’s some I found particularly funny/good.

“It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt.

Books serve to show a man that those original thoughts of his aren’t very new after all.

My Best Friend is a person who will give me a book I have not read.

The best way to destroy an enemy is to make him a friend.

How many legs does a dog have if you call the tail a leg? Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn’t make it a leg.

My concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God’s side.”
