amazing cake!! i make cakes, and theyre pretty good for someone my age, but they look terrible compared to the awesomeness of those other cakes. im jealous now, but they look like theyre caked in fondant (oh i didnt realize that was a pun, haha! whoops). but if you lived in the nursing home when the hole opened up, would you have volunteered to go down? would you have been jumping up and down with excitement if you could go down there? were you jumping up and down when you saw it? but thats soo stupid, kiki strike would be an awesome video game!! but ur right, a lot of adventure stories are about boys. this doesnt really bother me, but they really do need more heroines, like the irregulars, gilda joyce, and theodosia throckmorton. and you have a lot of books, im jealous!! sounds like anankas family, now that i think of it, haha. but your daughter is named after a font? i think itd be neat to be named after a poisonous plant, like belladonna or oleander......i dunno, im very talky today, haha. and you dont need to promote kiki, some of us out here do that for you. (like me! lol!) well this is really long, im very talkative, but im going to shut up now. otherwise........i dunno, something. but i dont know what/which something.......

long video. very long video. but ur right, fonts are important. some stories are better or worse depending one the font...i remember when i was little, i used to read the geronimo stilton books. they used all sorts of crazy, fun fonts and they were really colorful too. those are fun books for younger kids...
