A Poem by Amy and Hannah

Posted in Books, School, Stuff n Junk at 4:22 PM by Amy~la

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.
Thanks.

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.

Books in 2009

Posted in Books, Harry Potter, Stuff n Junk, Vampires at 11:11 PM by Amy~la

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.
