My Life is Crazy

My life is getting crazy.
(probably with how sidetracked I am with my mission to write two books)
 I know someone once said this: 

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein. 
— H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Thats the guy. 
Personally, I don't know how they did it.
But at least I'm not like the guy who wrote this poem.

Too Busy

by Bruce Lansky

I've folded all my laundry
and put it in the drawer.
I've changed my linen, made my bed,
and swept my bedroom floor.
I've emptied out the garbage
and fixed tomorrow's lunch.
I've baked some cookies for dessert
and given dad a munch.

I've searched the house for pencils
and sharpened every one.
There are so many things to do
when homework must be done.
But I'm not procrastinating...
I'd rather be doing work (I like doing work, but then again I'm very strange),
but the site I do it on is getting upgraded.
Like most things today. 
First it was these, then this, now it's that
I have a really old DS,
That I'm surprised hasn't blown up by now.
It has as many problems as a sieve has holding water,
and I have no interest getting a new one
Well, I will as soon as it a) starts to smoke b) breaks in half or c) blows up.
My money is on B and C  
maybe I should get an iPad, Mom, Mom, are you listening???

Monster High - a book review

I have decided to put a book review on here I wrote for our local library.

 Monster High
and is written by Lisi Harrison

 This book is              
(fav quote of main character)

This book takes the monsters from Dracula, The Creature from the Black Lagoon and, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and puts them into High School AND the 21st century. A new take on fitting in, in high school!

Two new girls have enrolled at Merston High School and things will never be the same. You have the views of Melody, shy, and in love with a geeky boy.  She is a big city girl in a small town, and her life is turning upside down. Then there’s Frankie, also in love with someone who is already taken.  She is outgoing, even with her green skin, an accident waiting to happen that keeps happening and happening… and life just started, literally. 

This story is so huge that one book can’t hold it all!
See you at Monster High in Book Two.

Blabber or Babble, somewhat the same!

The Cat's Mother just did a post where she wrote "You are like a spec on the horizon, until someone puts you on the list" She would be referring to that new list for Babble or Blabber ... and  apparently me.  Since when this was written, I wasn't on the list. When I pointed this out, The Cat's mother nominated me and put me on it. 
Afterwards she realized that it was really for Mommy bloggers. 

Maybe my cat counts. 

Talking of the cat in the bowl ...

Sadly, the bowl is no more. 
The Cat's Mother polished the table ...
 cat jumped on bowl ... 
flying bowl ...
cat still in it. 
Or so we think, since we woke up to this.         

Though he used to think that being in control of the bowl made him this ...

ps. the bowl was a wedding gift belonging to my parents - really, really old ...

But now you can vote for me here
I'm like No. 170 or something
The Cats Mother is in the Top Ten right now
By Word of Mouth - awesome!
Vote for her too while you are there :)
