And I love you Sherlock!
I was reading some stuff about the man who plays Sherlock Holmes, Benedict Cumberbatch. Apparently, he wanted to be the Doctor on Doctor Who, and he would have been GREAT! But he didn't try out and Matt Smith got the part.
*Fangirl squeal* OMG, MATT SMITH!!! *Squeal*
LOL, Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock is HILARIOUS! And I can so see Sherlock being a texting addict. Along with everything else he was addicted to.
And he's such an idiot when he talks to girls. He is so funny!
Oh my God, I'm so insane. I am totally obsessed with BBC shows. And British people. But don't tell anyone!
Just the whole internet.
Haha. I'm so weird.
And if you're wondering why I'm writing this at one in the afternoon on a Tuesday, I'm sick at home for the second day in a row.
Anyway, two more things about Sherlock;
1.) So funny how everyone thinks that Sherlock and John are gay
2.) and I don't know if I said it before, but I recently read a series called Enola Holmes written by a woman named Nancy Springer. They're sort of for younger kids, a little bit, but they were brilliant. I highly suggest them. There are six in the series.
P.S. Sherlock! :-D Heart.

This year's play shall be...
The Pirates of Penzance, Junior!
(I know it sucks, but my school always does the junior version of plays.)
Zev (A boy from school, whom I believe I've mentioned before...?) is an opera singer, and this is HIS play. He loves it. When we used to do talent shows at school, he always sang "I am a Pirate King."
It is now posted below, for your enjoyment.
Sorry the people are so weird looking.
Anyway... Well, not much else, really. Most of this year's teacher are pretty good. A few, who will not be named, are not so very good... (I would say more, but I know of one teacher specifically who reads this, although he isn't my teacher this year, and I don't want to get in trouble.)
Been doing a lot of writing, both on my new manuscript (Hooray, for the assassin! The government shall never catch her! No, I won't say anything else about it for now.) and editing Reborn.
I have been told by multiple people that I WILL be published, for real, not just self-publishing.
And that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy and glowy! :-D

I am so tired that I forgot to name this post! Then I came back to fix it, and I couldn't even think of a clever title!

We saw a Peter Pan play last night. It was really, really good. And I've found another quote I want to stick somewhere in my book; "To die will be an awfully big adventure." I already have one from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
And I still need to read the book. It will be in my next batch of library holds.
We're coming home today... and I'm not sure what else there is to say.
I now have almost 120 pages in my book, so I'm doing quite well.
I got a letter from Infublo up at camp, and another friend of mine out there too. I'll be sending them care packages. Any suggestions on what to send? (No food allowed, though.)
Last year I sent her a pet rock and she wants another one, so I'll work on that tomorrow.
I'm also going to make sure I watch Toy Story tonight becasue I haven't watched it in FOREVER!
I need a new copy, though because I still have a VHS. I need a DVD of one and two. Two's my favorite.
But since I own one, I'll make the best of it and watch it tonight.
*Sigh...* I wish Peter Pan and Neverland were real...
I wish everyone all the luck on their way to finding Neverland.

1. I GOT TO 100 PAGES IN MY BOOK YESTERDAY!!!!!!!! I AM SO HAPPY!! I AM NOW HALF-WAY TO MY GOAL! SQUEAL!!!!!!!! :-D
2. Yesterday I flew on a plane by myself for the first time. It wasn't so bad. So, I am writing this from my grandpa's computer in San Francisco right now. He doesn't have Wi-Fi in his house.
So now I have to write this on a REALLY old computer. I miss my Mac! Sob... Right now it's charging in the basement because there aren't any three pronged sockets that I could find free.
And this computer bugs me. When I have to go back and fix something it deletes other things I wrote while I write the new things. Sorry, that was a bad explanation, but I hope you get it.
Well, later this after noon my aunt and I, and her dogs, are going out to her house, where I'll be staying for most of the rest of my visit.
And, okay, I'm sick of not telling anyone this.
I now have side bangs! Yay!
And, I mean, since you probably don't know me, then it's not a big deal, but I've had bangs since I was really, really little and they've always been pretty long. Flopping in my face and stuff. So I go side bangs and LOVE them!
I'm sure when, but I think Thrusday, I'm going to get red streaks dyed into my hair (Yay!) and I want to get my bangs a different color. But I'm not sure what. Please vote on the poll that will be on the side when you look.
If I get a chance, I'll post a poem later.
My aunt's dogs, Ruby and Hank, say "Woof!" Which is their dog speak for, "Please rub my tummy, give me treats, and hi everyone!" Remeber, that was just a rough translation.
Cheerio from a different time zone than normal, peeps!
P.S. I'm doing very well with my 100 book challenge. Right now I'm reading a book called Beautiful Creatures by two authors and it's very interesting. But it's also pretty long, so it's taking me a while. But I'll most likely finish it this afternoon.

The teacher passes.
The teacher stares
We're not cheating.
We're just being helpful!
The teacher doesn't believe us.
No. I have never cheated on a test in my life! I'm just bored right now. And I shouldn't be on here anyway...
I'm a bad student!
I'll post some more tonight, I PROMISE!!!
Ahh! Teacher coming!! Bye!

I throw the brightly colored fruit up into the air and then catch it again.
In the blistering heat of the day, leaning under the shade of the tree is pure bliss.
I bounce the fruit in my hand again.
The tree grows next to my parent’s cliché, our white picket fence.
I lean my head back to rest upon the rough bark of the giant old oak and think of absolutely nothing.
I suddenly sit up. I hear the screech of tires against the newly laid asphalt of our road. Through my widening brown eyes I see the top of a big red truck, coming up fast toward me, just behind the picket fence.
I have no time to run. My throat is swollen silently shut; I cannot scream.
The truck crashes through the fence, the tires squealing with their owner’s attempts to break.
I am flung back by a piece of the fence, now reduced to shrapnel by this big truck. The tree trunk stops the truck in its tracks. Now it lays silent and it is hard to imagine it was the creature responsible for the squeals and crashes.
A silent man droops in the driver’s seat. Was it really he who drove this beast?
I see a small circle at the feet, the tires, of the beast. I crawl toward it.
Once the symbol of bliss to me, now the symbol of tragedy.
What do you think?
One word in a year,
