  1. what grade are you in Emily-wa?

    i have math test tomorrow. and a social studies test. instead of having tests on all the chapters seperate, the test is on the ENTIRE BOOK! and we’ve only been reading it for 3 weeks! and we also have to put like, 30 cities in washington in the rite spot. i dont even no half of them!

    sucks much.

    hehe. triskaidekafobia. i thought it was triskaidekaPHobia… but i guess im rong… hehe. spiders… hehe.

    i have a baby spider living in my room! i named him Sping. hehe. and the one downstairs is named Timmy by my sister. my family likes spiders. they prevent ugly poo-eating flying bugs, and the cobwebs are good considering Halloweens in like, a couple weeks!


    -Lizzy-wa OUT! 😛

  2. oh yeah, it is. Halloween is in a couple of weeks. My friend’s birthday is Halloween. So lucky…

    We should have a giant party at chasing midnight werewolves for Halloween

  3. Lizzy-wa, I’m in 8th grade. 10th grade math, which is Algebra 2.

    I’m not a fan of Seventeen, either… Or any of those kinds of magazines.

  4. i don’t mind Brio magazine…..and i wish that they would let me into some sort of advanced math…..i’m just in regulare math for my grade cuz my school doesn’t have a system for advanced math….i can’t wait til next year when i can take pre-calculus.

  5. Emily-wa: Algebra 2? Impressive. I think it’s okay, good mindless entertainment, but nothing compared to a good, actual BOOK, lol.
    Andrea-la: I have to take Calculus in 12th grade. I’m terrified, lol.

  6. wat? i love math….speeking of which, my math teacher STILL hasn’t gotten around to giving me extra math sheets…..and i really wanted to start working on next year’s math….

  7. well, if your in 8th grade (Emily-wa) then why does a 7th grade teacher help you with math.

    yeah. im in 10th grade 2. in 8th grade. but our 10th grade math is Geometry. i get to take Advanced Algebra/Trig next year. but its SOOOOOOOO boring! its like, the EXACT same thing as Algebra! you shood SEE how full my arms are!

    i dont read magazines…

    a Halloween CMW party wood be foolio…

    -Lizzy-wa OUT! 😐

  8. lol….my mom and brother were at a volley ball game tonight (bleh to the power of infinity) so my dad and i got to eat dinner alone. which is fun cuz me and my dad talked ’bout astronomy and such and eventually we got onto the topic on dimensions and of course that lead to me saying “WAIT!!! I READ ‘BOUT THAT IN GRADE FOUR!!!” so I went and looked on my bookshelves for “A Wrinkle In Time” and i basically read the part about the tesseract….so yeah….that’s what happens when me and my dad have supper alone. If my brother is there too, but my mom is gone, then sometimes we have math competitions!!!! Yeah….it’s mega-fun.

  9. Emily-wa: ur in 8th grade and taking Algebra 2?? gosh!! i’m in 9th and taking Algebra 1… AGAIN!! ya a 2nd time…not coz i’m dumb but coz my math teacher SUCKED in 7th and 8th grade and i totally didn’t understand ANY of it. but now i have a GREAT teacher and am currently aceing Algebra. YAAA!!!!
    Andrea-la: ugh…..i don’t UNDERSTAND U!!!! HOW CAN U LOVE MATH?!?!?! it just doesn’t add up (hahaha math humor). seriously i can’t stand it. English is my best subject. I LOVE IT!!! oh and the new JUST figured out that ur weird. huh… she needs to read this blog. i don’t even personally know u and i knew that! but i think ur weird in a good way…like the world needs more people like u…or maybe it’s just cool that u act like urself and not like everyone else…sooo…ya…that’s cool.

    GREEN DAY!!!! <3
    Today’s the Macy’s Day Parade.
    The line of the living dead is on its way.
    With the credit reports for duty call.
    It’s a life time guarantee.
    Stuffed in a coffin 10% more free.
    Red light special at the moselium.
    What’s the concelation prize?
    Economy sized dreams of hope.

  10. hmmmm… just read about the dinners with dads. ya my dad and i would start talking about religion or politics or something and then it would end REALLY badly. sooo ya best to avoid those topics with me.

  11. lol….and the new girl at my school says that she’s met weirder people than me….which i guess makes sense, seeing that she’s met my friends.

  12. and i love math cuz it’s just fun. math is so awesome in every single way!!! i mean, physics makes the world go round, and math is at the roots of that!!! Math is everywhere so why not love it? Also, I’m forcing the new girl at my school to read Uglies….so far I’ve randomly been quoting it throughout the day and she’s all “WHAT DOES THAT MEAN???” and i’m all “Read the book”…..and she’s all “just let me finish this one first”….but then she decided that she’d rather read So Yesterday, and I’m fine with that….as long as she gets around to Midnighters eventually…..Also, it’s official, I’ve forced ALL FIVE OF MY FRIENDS TO READ MIDNIGHTERS DESPITE THE FACT THAT THEY DON’T TRUST MY JUDGMENT IN BOOKS!!!! Yeah.

  13. Andrea-la: huh. watever u can like math i don’t care. just stop using cliches *cringes*. and about the new girl… haven’t u ever heard that peer pressure is BAD!! but i must give u props for trying to get her to read Uglies and all of Scott’s books. soo PROPS!! my friends read them(well most do. some just don’t read. ugh…i need to break the habit for them)

    GREEN DAY!!!! <3
    Hey there looking at me.
    Tell me wat do u see?
    As u quickly turn ur head away.
    Tried to find the words i could use.
    Don’t have the courage to come up to u.
    My chance is looking a bit grey.

  14. So, I just finished reading “Pretties” for the third time, and it makes me so sad!
    I just wish that Tally wasn’t put into so many hard situations! 🙁

  15. Hannah-la: i know wat u mean.

    Hey, just to let y’all know(hmmm…i’ve never used that before) i just posted a few more ideas for titles for the Analogy book. not as great as my others but watever (hmmm… with my luck though they probably already have a title and i’m wasting my creativity on NOTHING. i wonder if Scott even looks at that post any more?? *sigh*

    GREEN DAY!!!! <3

  16. Ello. I have major-le been busy with my story. I am having such a hard time. But i just need to concentrate…

    See i tell myself that when the truth is I’m easily discouraged. So one day, i think my story plot is great, and the next day its horrible. I dont know what to do!!!

  17. TYC Leader: I’m not being TOO weird to the new girl….just weird enough to get her curiousity and keep her away from the majority of the population at my school cuz they would suck out her originality. And, in this case, i’m using peer presure to keep her from REAL peer presure. Also, I’ve already forced all my usual friends to read scott’s books, so now i’ve got to work on someone else….

  18. I have this book with all sorts of wierd phobias in it. There was that triskaidekaphobia. And heaps of others, like the fear of baths, etc.
    I’m not a triskaidekaphobalien, I’m quite the opposite. The number 13 is one of my faves 🙂
    I like putting alien on the end of words, it ends up turning even boring words into hilarious words.

    Since we’re all putting in our grades and stuff, I’m in 8th grade. We don’t have different classes cos we’re all meant to be smart, I go to an academically selective school … Still, I wonder how some people got in …

    TYC Leader, not all peer pressure is bad … my school teachers and Youth teachers keep telling me that …
    Besides that’s not being too weird to the new girl. Nor is it bad peer pressure. Maybe she needs the good books? 🙂

    Andrea-la: Not too big a math fan. I mean, poverty and sickness are all around us, and there are PLEANTY of reasons not to love that. Well, not that math is as bad as that, lol. I forced three of my friends to read about every young adult book Scott-la has written (except one finds TLD a bit confusing, one has two more books to go, because I’m forcing the Twilight series on them also, and one refuses to read Extra’s because she feels Scott-la is being all hypocritical even though I TELL her that it’s fawesome!), and still have one more who I want to force to read Midnighters! Lol. Huh, you’re being all mysterious to the newgirl. Dess-la! Lol.
    Sonja: It’s one of my fave numbers too, in a great part to Midnighters. I put “icle” or “ish” on the ends of words, and my friends and I have entire conversations like that, lol-icle. I do have different classes, and am in a lot of honors ones, but I’m guessing quite a few people just self-selected.

  20. I’m in year nine, but I have no idea what that is in the U.S.A.liens… I’m in the advanced learning program, which I guess is the same as honours

  21. TYC Leader-la: me and my dad always get into huge conversations about religion and polotics too!!! hehe. but we always agree on every thing. (mostly) so it usually just ends funnily.

    hehe. it said “YOM KIPOR BEGINS AT SUNDOWN” on my school calendar yesterday and everybody was going around saying it. hehe. nobody new what the heck it ment. hehe.

    oh yeah! you live in Aussieville rite Lotti-la? arent they like, way advancedly smart over there? thats what my 7th grade teacher said. she did one of those teacher swap things and got to teach there for a year. she showed us the 4th grade textbooks. there huge!

    -Lizzy-wa OUT! 8)

  22. awwwww. i can’t go to the book signing in Kansas City tonight because I have to go to a funeral. I don’t even know the guy, but it is important that i am there. 🙁

  23. So, I learned in Biology today, that there’s this bacteria called Leptospira Interrogans, and if you get it, you basically turn into a peep! You develop photophobia, which means that you are afraid of light, but my teacher says it actually is when you become super sensitive to light. Like a vampire!

  24. My Science class is so BORING! It’s all basic stuff 🙁 I know everything I’m ‘taught’ in class …
    My most interesting class is art, where I actually learn stuff, but that’s mostly boring stuff about boring artists like Duchamp … but I like art anyway 🙂 And at least Duchamp had a sense of homour – I mean, a toilet being a work of art? (Tho that was the whole point of it …)

    My calender said that Yom Kipor began at sundown too and I was like “Wha?” Probs some religious thing …

    I’m getting the first Midnighters book soon, can’t wait! I have the other two, sitting and waiting in my room, but I’m trying to break my habit of reading books out of order …

    Talking about vampires, there are some good songs going on the Twilight soundtrack! Supermassive Black Hole by Muse and Decode by Paramore 🙂 I love that song Decode! And yet another song by Paramore is too 🙂 !
    Those song selections are happy-making 🙂

  25. My daughter Katelynn has read and re-read the first 2 books. She just now got ahold of Specials, and unfortunately, we just missed you in Columbus! Maybe next time.

  26. In addition, custom fleece blankets at the moment are available in a brand new and very widely used fabric that is inflicting an actual buzz within the marketplace. These are called Sweatshirt Blankets. The fabric is made of a selection of blended supplies that mostly include cotton. This product feels just like your preferred cozy sweatshirt. Device washable, this these blankets are a confirmed winner. Similar to that of the fleece blankets, the sweatshirt blanket comes in a mixture of colors and sizes as well. It’s also obtainable in a roll w/ handle or as a folded blanket packaged in a bag.
