Big Enough to Bite a Small Car in Half and Eat a T-Rex for Breakfast





This morning, my brilliant niece (an amateur paleontologist) directed my attention to a remarkable story on the BBC website. Seems a British fossil hunter made quite a discovery a while back--the skull of a sea monster so large that it would have considered the Loch Ness Monster a rather insignificant snack. (See above.) Read more--and see a video--here.

OMG, that thing would be scary. By the way, when the phrase "Liar, liar, pants on fire" is translated into French, then back into English, it says "Teller of untruths, your trousers have combusted." XD

I was browsing the Books-By-Release-Date calender on teensreadtoo.com and I saw the book you've been super secretive about, Kirsten! Too bad it doesn't come out til August 8th 2010!!!! I have no idea what it's about, but I can't wait! The Eternal Ones... I'm very intrigued.

Whoops! did I say august 8th? My bad. August 24th is even longer from now!!!!

Since I'm home sick, bored to death, and dangerously curious, I decided to fish around for some info on the mysterious Eternal Ones.

This is all I found:

"The thriller/romance, the first in a new series by the author of the middle-grade series Kiki Strike, follows a girl with strange talents who's having disturbing visions of a life that ended decades ago in New York City."

Please Kirsten!!!!! Tell me more!!!!

i agree with mushroom cloud. thats crap!!! iris is such an important part of the irregulars. but if people saw anything other than the irriganle group it could spoil the story for the newbies.
