This whole book banning is getting pretty old. Most people hear about the content of a book, and then before reading it or taking into consideration the context of the "inappropriate scene,” they immediately decide that this book isn't fit for young readers.
Many of the greatest books of the twentieth century were banned at one point in time or another, and each was banned without consideration for the book as a whole. Catcher In The Rye, a majority of the Harry Potter books, Huck… Continue
Queen Ramavalona I (born Rabodoandrianampoinimerina) ruled over Madagascar from 1828 to her death in 1861. She is a sadly overlooked villaness in history that came to power by poisoning her husband from birth, Radama. She was adopted by King Andrianampoinimerina (Radama’s father) at a young age. This was her biological father’s reward for uncovering a political plot against the king. Her life was filled with hatred; her hatred for people, and her people’s hatred for her.

OK. Im really bored. hmmmmmmmmmm i dont really know what to write so i'll just be random. Has anyone noticed that the nursery rhyme never says that humpty dumpty is an egg? i asked one of my friends (who is unfortunatly not a nerdfighter) and she said this, and dont ask me what she meant by the last sentence because i dont know:…
Okie dokie. This is my first blog...ever.

I have joined yet another social interation on the web place.....buuuuut I think this one is well worth it.
I am on a daily quest to fight world suck and it is exactly why I became a teacher. YAY teachers! cool ones at least. My small yet significant goal is to be one of the bestest teachers I can be and help to fight the suck in kid's lives. I also work for my local YMCA and they fight world suck too. So yeah >.> I suppose I will make fun new friends and blabber on about fun… Continue
So, I've been blog tagged twice =] I still have to find a way to do my vlog tag but while I can't, here's a blog tag. Oh, and I had to find 5 new secrets to put in here, which took long because I can't do many different stuff. =[ Anyways, if you're bored, here's five facts about me =D
1.I love to cook.
2.I laugh at the goriest films you can imagine. Laugh out loud.
....And the only cure for that fever is more Sims! (and cowbell, of course.)
It's happened. I've caught the Sims Sickness one more time. Why that game is so addicting I'll never know for sure, but it is. I spend entire days just building houses. Then just about the time I've satisfied my Sims craving, they go and release some new expansion pack! And now that I can spend my days building beach houses and vacation homes....I don't know, I think all hope is lost for me to actually get… Continue

Ok, we all know the tired line "There is a party in my pants, and your invited". Trite, and overused. BUT, it got us thinking. What if you could have your party in your pants? OK, one of our not really a joke items, but its the sort of thing we can't get people without a sense of humor to enjoy/and or use/and or not run us to the curb for suggesting.
This pair of pants is a brilliant plaid design, and using the techniques of bags of holding has an entire stadium in your… Continue

Today I went to work a bit earlier, and as I was getting off the tram, I saw the sun. A brilliant radioactive egg yolk hovering silently accross the sky (I swear I saw it move, and if it was making any noise, I couldn't hear it because of the many cars on the street). And although my hopes for the day weren't very high, I thought: "My, isn't that a lovely sunrise". And then I marveled at the very human ability to laugh even when we've just been shot in the knee. Figuratively speaking. Or not.… Continue
i dont know how many of you know this (probably an embarrassingly small number) but i was trying to decide on what five elemeants to use to make a nerdfighter crest. i have had some suggestions, and would appreciate your input on the final choice.
I woke up this morning at my normal time, said, "No, thank you, alarm clock," like I normally do, and then bam! My power went out. And then it went back on. Then off again. Then on. So I went downstairs and was about to go take a shower when my dad was like, "Wait. Let's see if your school is closed." So we turned on the tv and, just as they were about to get to my school, bam! The power went out. Again. For the third time since I had been awake at…
car is so cute! And zero emissions, no noise? For $12000? That's
fantastic. Governments really need to catch up to the demand for more
environmentally friendly cars/communities/ products. We are looking for
a new car right now, which will be used exclusively for city driving
(chauffeuring my children around). Our budget is modest, so we'll
probably be going for a pre-owned Civic or something like that.… Continue
Sorry. This has never happened before. I'm kinda excited. And not so much at the same time. Anyway, continuing...
1. I own over 1,000 sporks. Sometimes I draw faces on them and give them names when I'm bored
2. Sometimes, in advanced algebra, instead of paying attention... I use the class graphing calculators and write poems on them about how much I hate algebra. I then leave them on the screen and put them back for the next person to find.
So it seems that everyone around me is sick. But I'm not. How strange.
Honestly, pretty much half my friends can't get out of bed and both my parents feel like crap. Yet I'm perfectly fine. This almost never happens. I'm usually one of the ones who get sick. I'm usually someone who passes the illness on to the people around me! I should probably stay away from all these sick people, you know, just in case I'm not…
