  1. I sang that whole song at super-speed ’bout ten times in a row in the populare girl’s ear til the teacher caught me and told me to stop……

  2. Tally & Zane: That is SERIOUSLY your English assignment? Is your teacher on some questionable substances, or is the curriculum just that screwed up now adays? People can’t exactly force themselves to “fall madly in love” with a popular person, or force them to be annoyed by them (although the second would actually be easy, annoying people isn’t hard). I mean, all you’ll learn is how to be humiliated.

  3. Andrea-la: Haha, sonds hilarioius! Don’t think I could sing it super fast, though, I suck with tongue twisters. Wish I had the guts to do that. I have no problem with telling a popular person off when they’re rude to me, but I’m not exactly that well liked in my school, so I don’t bother to push whatever they have up their butt in regards to me.

  4. I guess I’m the only one that got the humor in that. The teacher made a joke. He wanted to have us imagine a scenario that could be vaguely similar so we can relate to Romeo and Juliet. He doesn’t want us to really do that. Just think about what it would feel like. It was drop dead funny. And I have staring contests with this one popular boy across the room in Spanish 2! Seriously! He’ll just sit there, staring at me, unblinking. And so I stare right back, and that’s basically what I do during class. Neither of us have won yet though, it’s always a draw! And I mean, we’re not lame and are screaming across the class HEY! I CHALLENGE YOU TO A STARING CONTEST! It’s just unspoken. But it’s pretty funny.

  5. ooh that’s so fawesome! I hope it does get made into a movie, because it follows the book really well, unlike some crappy movies i could mention (The Golden Compass, cough, cough)

  6. so i have good news!


    picture this:

    it was the last day of the scool book fair… (stupidly of me, i hadn’t even known we HAD a book fair) our class went to go check it out… during LAST PERIOD.

    im looking around with my friends saying things like: “have it.” “read it.” “hated it.” “you NEEN to read that.” all until i came to BOGUS TO BUBBLY. i screamed. my friends started shushing me and my whole class was cracking up. i snatched one from the shelf before anybody could hurt it and started scream/whispering (considering the book fair WAS in the library) about how it wasn’t supposed to come out til the 21st.

    then i decided “why am i sitting here talking about it!?” and started reading. then i realized I DONT HAVE ANY MONEY, and started desperately and FRANTICLY asking around. the only person in my class with money was a stupid guy who really doesnt like anybody in the class, and therefore, wouldn’t give me any.

    luckily, after BEGGING and PLEADING, Vicky-la let me borrow HER copy that SHE bought. cuz she had money.

    so now im happy. ๐Ÿ™‚

    and HAPPY LATE EXTRAS!!! sorry. its kinda delayed.

  9. hehe. im so happy! but now i feel really bad for you guys… if i new where you lived, id ship it 2 you. hehe.

    you guys havent gotten it yet cuz amazon sells books a lot. like, there really good at it. so they NO that BOGUS TO BUBBLY doesnt come out til the 21st. like good booksellers. whereas, for some reason, scholastic doesnt. which is wierd. cuz like, all they do is SELL BOOKS.


    but luckiness for me!

    -Lizzy-wa OUT! ๐Ÿ˜€

  10. don’t know. don’t care. i wrote a story about one for english class. i bet i failed. just cuz it was that random….here it is:
    Once upon a time, there lived a gnu named Wallie. He knew that it would be a bad idea to enter a rollar-skating competition, but did so anyways. There were two other gnus entering the competition as well, but Wallie knew that he had a good chance at winning.
    Race day came, and they lined up at the starting line. The dude with the whistle blew it and the race began. The other two gnus fell amost imediatly, but Wallie kept going. He saw food all over the ground, and he knew that it would distract him to look at, so he looked directly ahead. Because of this, he didn’t see the foot-long hot dog that was coming up right in front of him.
    He tripped on the hot dog and skidded….then he saw it! A neon green picket fence!!! But he was still skidding, and he couldn’t stop! Suddenly, his left eye was full of blood and the medical team of elephants had to come and take him to the hospital. They concluded that he had tripped on a magical foot-long hot dog and that his left eye had been completely removed by the neon green picket fence.
    Most of Wallie’s injuries healed over time, but one never healed. His eye, still to this day, rests in the stomach of a traveling bird, who picked it up after the competition. Or maybe now it is in poop-form on the ground of some desert in Alaska. No one really knows. All we know is that Wallie, is now known as Wallie the One-Eyed Gnu, and that he hates that. There are many other stories having to do with Wallie the One-Eyed, some involving lemons that shine like stars, but for now, this is all we know about Wallie. Someday, Wallie will die and we will know everything about him, but until then, he shall be known as Wallie the One-Eyed Gnu, who didn’t know how to rollar-skate.

    The End

  11. omg omg so i have an interview with a talent agent on Thursday and i have to perform a short monologue and my mom was like do something you know and love so naturally i think UGLIES!!! so im performing what Tally says at the end of specials…i’m so exicted i always wanted to have a reason to perform it!!

  12. lucky…i wish i could perform that in drama class at school…that would be mega-cool….instead, in drama class we have to do a speech about something that happened to us….so i’m writing about the time when me, my brother, my cousin, and my brother’s friend were put in charge of making supper and we almost set the house on fire…good times, good times….

  13. lol…i have more stories about Wallie the One-Eyed Gnu…I’m gonna write them down and hand them in for english class if we have to write another short story….the next one is gonna be the one with the alien invasion and how Wallie sees it coming cuz it turns out that the eye he still has is like a super-eye and he can see through it like a telescope or something!

  14. Wallie the One-Eyed Gnu … I can’t remember what a gnu is … oh that’s right I saw them at the zoo … Well it’s not surprising he can’t rollerskate, with four legs and hooves …


    An Uglies movie would be sparky!
    But I guess it won’t come out for a while, if at all … cos u got planning, filming, post-production, come out in movies in different places at different times, then come out on DVD in different places at different times … That’s about three years at the least …

    I love the song Decode by Paramore. Is sparky! Is going into Twilight movie, too! ๐Ÿ™‚
    I’m listening to it at the mo. It’s not out yet (I think … ) but you can listen to it on their website ๐Ÿ™‚

    Director, great screenplay! Seriously, it’s good work!

  15. Director: SOOOOO COOL!!!!! i wish that was actually for the movie and that the movie would come out, but that was cool that u made ur own. i could actually picture the movie in my mind. it takes alot of talent to do that.
    The movie is actually supposed to come out this year but i don’t think that will happen.
    Tally&Zane: ur English teacher is weird, funny, but weird.

    hey, did anyone look at my post for Name THis Book?? just wondering. don’t rush to read it.

    GREEN DAY!!! <3

  16. Awww, I’m not eligible for the book comp! It’s for Canadaliens and U.S.A.liens.
    Yes I know I put aliens on the end of those words. Was fun ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Ha, doing that to understand Romeo and Juliet better. I read Romoeo and Juliet last week. It’s funny. Not as romantic as everyone says, for a couple of reasons, but it still is pretty romantic.
    I’d love to do something that fun for English, but my English teachers (I have two this year … ) always set boring work.


    ohmygosh Sonja-la! hehe. you had me CRACKING UP at the USAliens! hehehehhehehehehehehehehehehe!

    -Lizzy-wa OUT! ๐Ÿ˜›

  19. Anyone live anywhere near Bluffton??
    Scott, there are so many things I want to ask you about your books. I definately want to have dinner with you and discuss the Uglies series!! lol

  20. TODAY IS MATT DAMON’S BIRTHDAY!!!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MATT!!!!!! he’s my favourite actor even if he is for Obama and slammed Sarah Palin on TV…oh well. speaking of Obama…today my mom had me look at a Obama/Biden sign really quick and told me to read it. i was like ok… and i said “Obama… Bin… oh wait i meant Biden not Binladen” i started to say it so it would sound like Osama Binladen… weird. sorry for the spelling.

    Now off to softball…ugh it’s cold.
    comment 93/ 9+3=12 AHHHH!!!
    GREEN DAY!!!!<3

  21. oh and today i had a fitness test in gym, so i’m basically the equivilent of braindead, except that i’m still smart enough to make a fool of myself….yeah….

  22. Grrr. . . Lizzy-wa I so totally hate you right now. I NEED Bogus to Bubbly so much right now…

    Scott-la, will you be coming to KY? Because we’re right under Ohio, seriously, I live near Lexington, which is like almost right across the border. Seriously, what’s with avoiding us? We’re not all rednecks. . . I find that my family is quite the opposite. Although we’re originally from Indiana… Wait no, my dad was born in Tenassee… Ugh, still. Come to Kentucky.

    My teacher didn’t show up for my math class. Haha, that got your attention, right?
    Well I’m special- at my new school, they only have regular classes and one level higher. I’m two levels higher in math, so a 7th grade teacher is helping me during her planning time. Well, she didn’t show up today -.- Luckily I thought to check her room for my book and stuff, or I’d have been bored for an hour and a half.

  23. during math class today it was so funny…cuz we did the lesson involving the question with the word “triskaidekafobia” (fear of the number 13) and nobody but me could pronounce it!!! yeah. and then i’m all, well, if you have tristkaidekafobia, would you like spiders? then everyone kinda looked at me like i was weird or something…..but the question makes SENSE!
