The Pulse

Posted in Stuff n Junk at 6:29 PM by Amy~la

There once was a TV show called Dark Angel. In that TV show, there was an event that happened. This event supposedly happened on June 1, 2009 at 12:05 pm. What happened was a bunch of terrorists detonate and electromagnetic pulse into the atmosphere over the United States and it knocks out most of the computers, turning the whole country into chaos. They called this event The Pulse. It is supposed to happen tomorrow. If it does happen, I hope you are prepared. If it doesn’t happen, then watch the TV show. It’s pretty good. (Although there are only two seasons, and season two wasn’t that great.)

Pictures

My friend Maddy is now on vacation. I won’t be able to see her for a whole week and that makes me sad. So today I was taking random pictures to cheer me up and I took a few of myself. Some of them were actually pretty good. I think I put a few on here. 🙂

TV Shows

Posted in Stuff n Junk at 10:22 PM by Amy~la

Now that I am all caught up with Smallville, I need a new TV show to take over my life. (Literally) I was trying to find one when I remembered that I still haven’t seen season 5 of Angel. I went to tvduck.com and I am now on episode 10. (The best part is that in Smallville, the actor James Marsters was in 13 episodes and on Angel he is in 24 episodes. James played Brainiac on Smallville and Spike on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel.) But after this season is over, what should I watch? I think I’ll go back and watch the latest season of Heroes because I didn’t watch that. Or maybe I’ll watch that Dollhouse show. That’s from the creators of Buffy and Angel. The main character is even played by Eliza Dushku who played Faith, the other vampire slayer. Ooh, or maybe I’ll watch that old TV show Lois and Clark. I just finished one Superman show, so why not start another? Oh the possibilities.

ATM

Posted in Stuff n Junk at 9:21 PM by Amy~la

I will start off my summer vacation with a little story about an attempted robbery right here in my town of Columbus, Georgia. Last night, some smart person decided to rob the bank near my house. He didn’t take any money and he didn’t even go inside the bank. He took a bulldozer and tried to steal the ATM. He didn’t try to break into the machine, he wanted the whole machine. He got a couple of blocks when he got caught. Today after school I was in the car with my sister and my mom and I saw the area where the ATM used to be. It is gone, probably being repaired.

Lex Luthor is Just Terrible

Monster

Posted in School, Stuff n Junk at 2:18 PM by Amy~la

Today in first block (English) we had an end of the year party. Everyone brought sweets (I brought brownies). I had 3 cups of soda (2 of them were Mountain Dew) 3 cookies, 2 brownies, and a rice crispies treat. My friends Matthew, Jeremy, and Brittany had Monster energy drinks. I’ve never had one and they wanted me to try it. Jeremy gave me the last sip of his, and then I became really really hyper.  I was bouncing in my seat. In second block (gym) I was still hyper. I ran around and spun around and acted hyper. Then I sat down on the bleachers and fell asleep. I crashed so hard it was really funny. Then in third block (civics) I was back to my normal self. Then in fourth block (math) I was talking in a British accent. It was an awesome day.

British or American?

Posted in Stuff n Junk at 10:18 PM by Amy~la

There was an ad on the side of a website that was for an IQ test. It said something about the “average American IQ” and then it showed a picture of Rob Pattinson. There is only one problem with that, Rob Pattinson is British. Maybe the people that make these ads should do a little research. Any website would tell you that he is British. (And the fact that he was in a Harry Potter movie would also prove that he is British.)

Jimmy Olsen

Posted in Stuff n Junk, Superheroes at 9:42 PM by Amy~la

So, Smallville is the story of Superman before he was Superman. It has all the characters from the comics and the movies (Clark Kent, Lex Luthor, Lana Lang, Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen) and some characters not from the comics (Chloe Sullivan, Tess Mercer). Well, because most of the characters are in the comics and movies, you know who lives and who dies, or so you would think. Jimmy Olsen, photographer for the Daily Planet, friend of Clark Kent and Lois Lane defenatly doesn’t die in the comics. Jimmy Olsen died on Smallville. How could they do that? Well, Jimmy’s younger brother is the Jimmy from the comics and movies. That’s confusing and I don’t like it. Jimmy Olsen shouldn’t have died.

Last Week of School (and books)

Posted in Stuff n Junk at 1:06 PM by Amy~la

Whoo! It’s almost the last week of school! Do you know what that means? It means in English class we get to read A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare, in gym class we get to sit and talk, in civics we get to make our own political party (the Chosen Party!), and in math class the students have to teach the class (I don’t know why, the standardised tests and finals are over.) And in civics, everyone is trying to get Mr. T to show whatever movie we suggest. My friend Tessa and I suggested that we watch Monty Python and the Holy Grail. That movie might be from the 60s, but it is so funny! I mean, the dude walks like he is riding a horse and has a guy follow him banging two coconuts behind him to make the horse hooves sound!

And here’s something off topic. I am keeping track of how many book I read this year, and so far it has been 13. I also have a list of books that I want to read this year, and so far it is 28. And then I am currently reading 2 books. So if I only read the books on my list, I will have read 43 books this year. Wait, no that’s not accurate because on the list I just said the name of the series I wanted to read, not the name of each individual book… Let me add those now… Ok, it’s more like 52 books. Wow… can you imagine if I read 52 books this year? That would be a lot of reading.

P.S. Check out my new page where I post all my really short stories. 🙂

Deja Vu

Posted in Stuff n Junk at 9:07 PM by Amy~la

I was reading Magic’s Child by Justine Larbalestier (the third book in the Magic or Madness trilogy) when I had a serious case of deja vu. I just finished reading chapers 26 and 27 and I continued reading when I was like “wait, I’ve read this before.” Then I looked at what chapter I was reading. they printed chaper 26 twice. So I continued to the next chapter. That too was familiar, and guess what… they printed chapter 27 twice also! So I was reading this totally awesome book, and then I found a major error in the book. I wonder if anyone told the editor about it…

Prologue

Posted in Stuff n Junk at 10:18 PM by Amy~la

Tomorrow is the long-awaited Friday. I wish I could stay home because I feel like shit and my throat hurts, but I can’t because I have finals tomorrow. Now, I would normally take my final in 1st block, then get checked out, but there is a problem to that plan. Not only do I have a final in 1st block (English) tomorrow, but I also have a final in 4th block (math). So I have a final in my first and last classes.

For part of my English final I have to memorize and recite the prologue to Romeo and Juliet. It is a sonnet, meaning that it is fourteen lines long. That means I had to memorize a Shakespearean sonnet… and I did it in a day! I shall type it here…

“Two households, both alike in dignity
In fair Verona where we lay our scene
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-cross’d lovers take their life.
Whose misadventured piteous overthrows
Doth with their death bury their parents’ strife.
The fearful passage of their death-marked love,
And the continuance of their parents’ rage
Which, but their children’s end naught could remove
Is now the two-hours’ traffic of our stage.
The which of you with patient ears attend,
What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.”

Wow… when I went back to check to see if I got the prologue right, I only had two things wrong. In the fifth line I said “From forth the fatal loins of our two foes” instead of “From forth the fatal loins of these two foes.” The other thing I got wrong was in the last line I said “What shall miss here, our toil shall strive to mend” instead of “What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.” So I think I’m good for the final…

Wow…

So I was looking back at my posts from the last month, and there has only been like 3… sorry about that. I will try to post more often…

5 Sentences Equal a Story (part 2)

Posted in Stuff n Junk at 9:31 PM by Amy~la

I was bored, again, so I did something that I’ve only done once before. I picked five random books, opened to page 100, wrote a sentence down, and wrote a story using those 5 sentences. Here are the original sentences and books.

  • Pip is right about the tower: it’s magnificent. The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray
  • The snow, the cold, it was exhilarating. Magic or Madness by Justine Larbalestie
  • Now there were three of us sitting in the waiting room waiting to hear how Dally and Johnny were. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
  • By seeming to be friendly with Pilkington he had forced Frederick to raise his price by twelve pounds. Animal Farm by George Orwell
  • I loaded the water, one bottle at a time, into the pack, my motions unnecessarily deliberate; I added the remaining granola bars just as slowly. The Host by Stephenie Meyer

And here is my story:

Where was I? The snow, the cold, it was exhilarating. I ran into a bunch of people that looked at me strangely. There was a girl named Pip that told me about this tower that I had to check out. I hitched-hiked to the tower. The only thing I could think of was, “Pip is right about the tower: it’s magnificent.” When I was finished gawking over the tower, I caught a cab ride. The driver was going on about something like “By seeming to be friendly with Pilkington he had forced Frederick to raise his price by twelve pounds.” That was when the driver of the cab hit two people. Their names were Dally and Johnny. We rushed to the hospital. A couple hours passes and now there were three of us sitting in the waiting room waiting to hear how Dally and Johnny were. When it was announced that they would live, I decided that I needed to leave. I went to a house and found water, granola bars, and a backpack. I loaded the water, one bottle at a time, into the pack, my motions unnecessarily deliberate; I added the remaining granola bars just as slowly. After I loaded everything, I just walked. I walked until my water and granola bars were gone. Then I just fell. I was lying in the middle of a road when my mother picked me up and drove me home.

Statistics

Posted in Stuff n Junk, Superheroes at 10:11 PM by Amy~la

In the movie Superman (1978), Superman saves Lois Lane from a helicopter crash. After saving her he says, “I hope this doesn’t put you off flying. Statistically speaking, it’s still the safest way to travel.” In the movie Superman Returns (2006), Superman saves a bunch of people (including Lois Lane) from an airplane crash. After saving them he says, “I hope this doesn’t put any of you off flying. Statistically speaking, it’s still the safest way to travel.” In Smallville season 8, Clark Kent gets in an elevator and Lois Lane says that she will take the stairs. He says, “Statistically this is the safer way to travel.”

I just thought it was cool how the old Superman movie, the new Superman movie, and the TV show about Clark before he was Superman had similar lines.
