There is a monster in my closet
It’s big and scary and green
Its teeth are sharp and pointy
And its attitude is quite mean
The monster wants to eat me
But I don’t want to die.
I’m sure I don’t taste good
Even toasted on rye
The monster likes to scare me
He does it every night
It jumps out of my closet
And gives me such a fright
I told my mom about it
She told me not to worry.
“There’s no monster in your closet
That eats people with curry.”
I told her she was wrong
And the monster is quite real
Its skin is soft and leathery
And feels just like a seal
I walked her to my closet
To show my mom the beast.
She looked inside and laughed
“There’s no monster, to say the least.”
“Mom, what do you mean?
I see it every day.
It likes to make fun of me
And it makes me its prey.”
“Just look closer at the monster
And I’m sure you will find
Your imagination is wild
And leaves you quite blind.”
I stepped inside my closet
And looked for the thing
I found my green jacket
That is covered in bling
I felt very silly
For it was just my jacket
No wonder it never moves
When I create a loud racket
(I wrote this poem in English class)
I really don’t know
But I really like haikus
They are fun to write
If you like haikus and you like Yu-Gi-Oh or the Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged Series, the you would love my livejournal! Just go to http://yami-amy.livejournal.com/
Thank you Hollywood. Robert Pattinson was nominated for a Razzi award for his role of Edward Cullen in The Twilight Saga: New Moon. I hope he wins. Other people I want to win these Razzi awards given to the worst performances of the year are The Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus or Megan Fox (they are in the same category), and Kristan Stewart and Taylor Lautner (worst on screen couple). I’m positive the only reason Shia LeBouf and Megan Fox are in the came category as Kristan Stewart and Taylor Launter is because of that awful actress Megan Fox.
Today in Pre AP English 2, we had to write a paragraph or a poem that used an allusion to something. This allusion could reference anything we wanted to, so my partner Hannah and I decided to reference Waldo. This is the poem we wrote.
“Tristan: The Lost Dog”
I’ve lost my dog.
I don’t know what to do.
No one could help me, can you?
He’s harder to find than Waldo.
He’s somewhere in the world like Carmen Sandiego.
What’s that you say?
Look in the hay?
I found my dog.
Now that poem right there took us more than ten minutes to write, because about five of those minutes were spent goofing off and quoting YouTube videos. (The Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged Series to be exact.)
P.S. Today in math class, this guy Caleb walked up to me and said “Amy, I finally get your Yahoo! name. TheBlueTime13, Midnighters! I read it over the weekend. It’s an awesome book.” He said he will start the second book soon. I hope so because I kind of want to talk about those books now. And Tessa still has my copy of Touching Darkness. And maybe Uglies. And I think Maddy has my copy of Pretties. I need my books back.
Tonight I am conducting an experiment. I am staying up, as late as I can, and seeing if I will be okay at school tomorrow. It’s not smart, but I am bored and not tired. And I need to watch more Yu-Gi-Oh. Curse Maddy for getting me hooked on that show!
EDIT! I stayed up until 2 am and I think it was a good idea. I wasn’t tired at school and I was even more alert than normal. Maybe I should go to bed at that time more often. (The word bed looks like a bed.)
It’s almost 2010. So I will post the books I’ve read in 2009. The vampire books are in red, the books about magic are in blue, the books with magic and vampires are in purple, the books about fairies are in green, and the sci-fi books are in orange. And I have no idea what color to make Liar because it’s like sci-fi, but it’s not. And if I created a category for what Liar is about, I would totally give away the ending.

Today I took a tour of the CNN building in Atlanta. To get to the top floor, where the tour begins, you have to ride a big escalator. This escalator is the world’s tallest free-standing escalator, standing eight stories tall. They didn’t tell us this until we were at the top. Thanks for helping my fear of heights CNN! (But the tour was cool. I saw people who were on the air while I was in the studio.)
Today there is a Star Wars marathon, and I am watching it
I was watching Romeo + Juliet (the version were it takes place in present-day but they still talk in Shakespearian.) The part when Juliet is “dead” in the tomb and Romeo is standing over her, about to poison himself makes me really mad in that movie. In the play, Romeo kills himself, Juliet wakes up, then Juliet kills herself. Well, in this one it goes, Juliet wakes up, Romeo kills himself, Juliet kills herself. Why didn’t Romeo realise that Juliet was awake before he drank the poison? Her head and hands were moving and her eyes were open! And, this is a question about the original and all other versions, Romeo and Juliet knew each other for four days! They met on day one, got married on day two, Romeo killed Juliet’s cousin on day two, Romeo is banished on day two, Romeo and Juliet “confirm their marriage” on day two, Romeo is gone on day three, Juliet is told she will marry Paris on day three, Juliet takes the potion on day three, Romeo sees Juliet in the tomb on day four and kills himself, causing Juliet to kill herself as well. FOUR DAYS? Really Shakespear? Only four days? (It could be up to seven days because Romeo could have been gone for longer than a day…) Still, seven days? One week? Really Romeo and Juliet?
I was just watching a video where this person was talking about the Disney princesses, and I have one question. Why is Mulan considered to be a princess? She wasn’t born royal and she didn’t marry royal. She hugged the emperor, does that count? And I also learned that sometime Alice from Alice in Wonderland is considered a princess. Disney also excludes many REAL princesses. So why put non-princesses and exclude real ones?Anyway, here is the video I watched.
