Readers! You shall be excited, for I have a extra special surprise for you! Now, I know you’re all jumping with joy and shouting at the top of your lungs saying, “WHAT IS IT, OH BELOVED BLOGGER?!?” Which to I answer, I’m not telling you. Hehe, I’m so evil. Okay, I’m not evil, but I do like to put people in suspense, guessing that people enjoy my blog enough to get in suspense about something that has to do with it.

This special little extra special surprise will be revealed on August 28th. Although there will be clues throughout the time between now and then to what that surprise is! I may have even hidden some in blog posts previous to this one, so go on, try and figure it out. I know you want too!

Okay now to an actual blog, type blog. The problem? I don’t really know what to say. No not blogger’s block, but more…. Idea block. If that makes sense.

How about a new little segment called, My Road’s book club? It may just be a one time thing, or it may be reoccurring, remember it’s me we are talking about, nothing is guaranteed (other than question and commenter of the day.)

Now I’m reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. With my whole being busy thing I haven’t been reading it at the speed of the first two, but I’m still enjoying it at a pace that fits me. I’m only around 100 pages in, if that.

I’m really into comparing books, and the movies based off them. The movies are always disappointing, sorry to say, but most of the time there is a reason it is changed. The reason, to be truthful, is always the same, it’s to make it better in the box office. Now, believe it or not, there are people who go to a movie based off a book, even though they haven’t read the book. :O Shocking as it may be, the directors and screen writers need to attract to that audience, along with the critics. For example, in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, in the book the snake is 20 feet long. While a snake 20 feet long would scare just about anyone (other than Tom Riddle) out of their socks, it isn’t enough for the box office. They then tripled the length of the snake, for the big bucks. One change in the movie series I don’t get is why Peeves was cut out. I love Peeves! I think that some people would come to the movie just for him, doubtful, but possible. Does anyone see any reason for the cutting of Peeves? Does he really take up that much room in the movie that his scenes are too long? There are some things purely cut out for length, like some things that take several days to occur, in the movie it appears to happen in 1 night, with everything in between used for suspense, is cut out.

Commenter of the day:
Nora
Who worries about disappointing people.

Question of the day:
What are differences you have noticed from book to movie?

Tomorrow I have my first day of Driver’s Education. I’m actually excited, even though I’ve heard several horror stories of just how boring it is. Even if it is Boring, it will still be Driver’s Education. In my state you can take Driver’s Ed at 15 and take the driver’s permit test once passing the class. I’m 16, which is the age where most kids take their driver’s test, and get their license. So yes I am a little behind. Also I should add that most of the people I have heard from that it is boring also find almost all of their classes boring. One thing that I’m not looking forward with it is that there will be mostly the grade under me and my grade in the class. If I would of taken it this time last year it would have been mostly the grade above me, which I would prefer. But it’s not last year, I will have to live with it.

 The class is 2 weeks long 9am-12pm Monday-Thursday, Friday being the makeup day. My friend Beatrice who is also 16 and the grade above me is also enrolled in the class. The worst part of that is that the seating arrangement is alphabetical. With my last name starting with an L and her last name with a W, we will not be seated next to each other. 😦

 So as many of you know I still have my kitty Grissom with me. If you go back to this post you will see that he was going to be given up. It has been over a month and he is still here. I’m hoping that my mom has just procrastinated to the point that it is just not going to happen.

Grissom :D

 In other pet related news, my mom has laid down the law that no snakes will be entering this house on purpose. She did however say she would be fine with a lizard. Right now I am looking at Geckos. I’d like a Blue Tongue Skink, but we don’t have room for a 40 gallon tank, believe it or not. I’m really excited about this Gecko business! I am saving up my money (yes again) so I can buy a tank for it, since our 10 gallon tank won’t cut it. I also will need a good chunk of money for the Gecko, tank accessories, and heating accessories. Not to mention crickets to feed it, and money to buy crickets for awhile after buying it.

QUESTION OF THE DAY:
 If you could take a road trip to any place in the country with no worry of paying for gas or having a vehicle/license, where would you go?

 I would go to the state in which Nora and Marissa reside in to pick them up, then Washington and then too California, then back to Nora and Marissa’s state to drop them back off, and back home!

 Commenter of the day for my last post is Michelle who’s answer to the question: “What is your dream number of kids/order/gender?” was “I think when I settle down, I’d like to have 3-4 kids. I know I want at least one boy and one girl. Possibly 2 of each.”

p.s. No punishment for last post for having no featured commenter for 2 reasons.

 A) No one caught it XD

 B) No one answered the question other than Marissa who had one the day before.

Ohh, I’m sorry! I hope you can forgive me for being stuch a bad bloggist the last few days. I have no excuses really. Well I do for last night but other than that it’s just lazyness. On Wed. I had a pretty good day at school considering the imature people who go there only since the law requires it. After school I had art club which is fun and brightens my day. After art club my bff and her mom brought another art clubian and me out to eat at a Thai restraunt. It was amazing! I had like 15 cheese wontons! Her mom after dropped me off at home. I had a concert that night and about 40 minutes until I had to be there. Walking up to the door lied a Girl Scout thin mint box. I was very confused in why it was there seeing I quit Girl Scouts last year. But low and behold it was my package from Nora! I grabbed it and ran inside with a scissors in hand ready to rip it open, when my mom stops me and makes me make some calls to people she said I’d return calls to. (now i am glad she did since otherwise I wouldn’t of recorded the opening!) I then grabbed the box, scissors, and my cammera and ran up stairs. I got dressed for the concert, did my hair, and turned the cammera on. I opened the box and it made me ooooh so happy! As soon as I was done opening it, it was time to leave for the concert. I had to bring the paper airplane and the regular letter part of the package in the car so I could read it on the way there. Once at the concert Mr. Dewitt assigns “little band” (a group of 15 9th graders who aren’t in choir) chairs to set up after Jazz Band played. We where told it was a 10 minute intermission inwhich we had to set it up in. I then as soon and fast as possible escape the group and talk to my 10th grade friends in Symphonic Band. I then watch the concert with my buddy Sammy, Hiedi, and Andre (some of the few 9th graders I can stand to talk too). When it comes time for Jazz Band to play we get ready to set up. As soon as they finish their 3rd and final song we start setting up. I, along with 2 other girls where in charge of the first row which we finished fast so we started helping the larger rows. It went good for the first 5 minutes. Then when starting to help with the 5th and last row I start looking for the people who are in charge of it and who know how many chairs and stand need to be in it. They where NO WHERE to be found, looking around more, out of the 15 people in little band there are 5 left that are still setting up. So we have to ask the band director who is busy enough how many is needed. Then the 4 girls and 1 boy left start running like chickens with our heads cut off trying to fit all the chairs and stands in, along with all the percussion equipment. By the time we are done it has been 27 minutes, somthing that could of been 10 IF the everyone would of actually helped. The 5 of us are pretty ticked and sweating from the hot stage and from running around with chairs and stands. We then get into the band room to line up and find all of symphonic band, the people who are just in “big band” and the rest of “little band.” I poke one of them and say WHERE WERE YOU???? and she said our row was done and all the stands where set up so I thought we could leave. They where on the fifth row which when she left had 12 chairs and 0 stands out of 34 chairs and 17 stands. Lets just say that was not an enjoyable concert! After the concert and the ride home where I complained and, may I say, Bitched the whole way home about it. I then got home and calmed down. I finished Paper Towns *Squeel* and Started One Wish, a book sent by nora. i’m almost half done at the moment! This morning when my mom woke me up. My cat was laying in front of me and  was holding Burt (a moose in Nora’s package). My mom picks up Burt and said, “I could bearly pick out which one was the cat and which one was Burt.” It made me laugh.

 

Sorry for the depressing rambling after just having short crappy posts!

HI BLOGGY! I’m glad I’m writing this now and not an hour and a half ago. I have a draft of todays blog. it was depressing. Lets say I had a notsome day with lots of imature people, freshman and teachers alike. But i’m not notsome now so, BLOG STOP BRINGING ME BACK TO THAT MOOD! So today I’ve been mood swinging alot. Okay since I got home I have been. So I thought i would take a chance to write a list (more of a list and explanation of each item on the list) of everything that makes me happy and or smile!

  • My online friends: Nora and Marissa you two are my best online friends ever! Okay i’ve only had 2 before you that lasted more than like an hour but STILL! You both know how to make me smile. marissa and your optimism! Nora and your awesome ideas! I’m so exited for our book exchange! I’m exited for both of your letters! You both can expect a little somthing that isn’t just the letter (book for Nora) in your mail boxes around the middle to end of next week!
  • Lunch Period: My Sophmore friends are amazing! I went to lunch today all notsome and barely talking. How did I leave lunch you might ask. I left it smiling and laughing to myself!
  • Video Productions: Useally this would make me feel notsome. But now I’m editing a video with my bestie in it and she just got so into her role that its hillarious. It was intended to be a drama, but she, she with her marvolous acting skills turned it into more of a comedy. I always have people peeking over my shoulder seeing what the grunting and evil laughing is!
  • Visiting old friends/family: does this need explanation

okay i’m getting distracted now by planning for this weekend! I hope You enjoyed
