Happy Valentine's Day and Chinese New Year to you too!

This is our first year celebrating Chinese New Year because this year we are pursuing adoption from China, so it makes us feel closer to my soon-to-be-sister!

Cute picture!

HAHHAAA! THIS. IS. MY. YEAR.

Above is the emoticon depiction of Brundibar, the German villain in a play I saw at my school. It was made in the concentration camps, and we met an actual survivor from the camp, and an original cast member of the play! I think I was the only one who enjoyed it... Except for maybe 2 teachers out of the 5 there.. I really liked it! You should so search it up!



ANDDDD... A BOOK RECOMMENDATION! You all should look into the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld. Very action packed and full of unexpected sequences. I f you like the Kiki Strike Series, you will love these! I'm just sayin here... No advertising! lol!

Anna: I read the uglies series, and I liked it, my favorite was Specials, by far! I just didn't really understand Extra's and got bored with it, so I stopped reading it.

I have a nice book review too. It's called the Amanda Project. The first book just came out, and it rocks! It's about this girl, Amanda, who goes missing, with clues regarding her disappearence. Now, these three kids have to find out what happened to her. She went missing on the Ides of March, and left her mark by spray painting every inch of the Principle's car. Worst part is, with every clue these guys find, Amanda just because even more strange, mysterious, and diabolical.

Kinda sound like Kiki Strike?? It's a REALLY great book, but not even CLOSE to Kiki Strike, don't worry.

First, it's a beluga whale, one of the sweetest creatures on earth. Second, the little boy is giving it a peck the way you might kiss a dog or a cat or a baby. They are most certainly not "making out." And I find it rather disturbing that someone would suggest that they were.

Hello Readers and friends, will you please review this poem for me--I am entering the poetry contest at my school:

Emptiness.
The leaky Campbell’s can on the counter
Mimics me,
It’s tomato soup equivalent to my
Metallic tears

Cold
Swelling
Swooshing
circus
Inside me.

Something cracks
And the
Golden grandfather clock
Now fits in my hand
The nightdress too small
Constricting.

A scream,
Of old-fashioned
Fear
That takes hold of me
Shakes me,
Witch hazel,
Candy wrapper in my hair.

Fever
Sharp icicles
All at once
Swelling, hypnotic rise
Of the moment
Naked fish bowl,
The knife.

It was over.
