The costume problem

Halloween is the friday right? I should have a costume by now, yes? Well I'm still hunting! We're having a costume party on friday and yer supposed to dress up like a person from a book or movie. well I wanted to be Marcia Overstrand from the book Maygk. Unfortunately, i haven't been able to find any purple dresses or shoes in this whole freaking town! there isn't anything in Clovis either. So now I am forced to change my costume and can't really think of any other options. (part of my brain is being a real donkey) I do have a few ideas, but they aren't as good. sigh.

I don't like the fact that for almost any online jig you join, ya need a password. it's sooo annoying not to mention confusing when you have to remember all those passwords. it's not good to have the same password for everything because it then makes it easier for ppl to hack into yer stuff, so I have a ton of passwords. it's going to get even worse when I get older and have to remember all those pin numbers for banking and my social security number. 

Have I mentioned how much I HATE numbers. give me letterers any day. they are far easier to remember than a long string of number. ack! Well, I haven't forgotten any of my passwords yet, so I'm good for now. let's keep it that way shall we?

Pray for a Windstorm!

rain. I like rain. I love rain. BUT! I hate it when it drizzles (that rain that kind of hangs around in the air a while before it sinks slowly to the ground) for two days straight and the temperature goes from 80 to 30 degrees in one afternoon. not to mention how it was around 20 degrees the past few nights. hello! I only had one blanket on my bed. brrrrrrrr. I don't like it when the temps jump around! hot cold hot cold hot cold. you can't adjust and yer either really hot or freezing!

My grand parents got here a few days ago. woop de do. they are never going to believe that most the time it's hot and dry here after it's been raining for two days. My mom is hoping for a big windstorm to turn the sky brown like it did in March to show our grandparents that this is NOT a very good place for them to live. they'd hate the wind. there has been hardly any wind at all the last few days and Grandpa said "Is it always so windy here?" he hasn't seen nothin' yet!

list of things I need to do....
1. finish creation project by Friday. =0 (I still have to work on days 5-7!)
2. finish reading inkdeath so I can get that back to the library by the 18th.
3. start and finish Brisingr so I can give it back to Haley
4. pray for a large windstorm
5. wash paint off of fingers...oops.

dead people aren't fun

So I picked up this book called "the sight" right? it looks like a cool book. it has a white wolf on the front and everything. In truth, the reason I picked it up in the first place is because I want to read it's sequel. *shrugs* Something odd: when I went to look for it in the library, it's sequel, called Fell, was in the YA section. but "The Sight" was in adult fiction. there is something mixed up about that. 

back to me reading the book: this book, is about wolves. the main characters are wolves (for those of you who did not understand my first statement.) anyway, it is very descriptive, which is good. I like description. Then you get to the dialogue. it's all like "yes, palla, finding the cave would be a good thing." "No, Huttser, we cannot go that way!" the over usage of names is thoroughly annoying, but I keep reading anyway. After all, I don't have anything left on my reading list since I finished book nine in the Pendragon series. Eventually, I get used to some one's name in every sentence. 

I get to chapter three (after Morgra curses Larka's family) people start dying! or should I say,  the wolves start dying? The first one to go is Khaz. I think that's how you spell it. I don't have the book in front of me. (for those of you who have read this book, please forgive me if 
I spell the names wrong) He falls in a hunter's tap. Then Brassa dies of illness. The wolves leave their home. Then crossing a river, Kipcha dies. She falls off a waterfall. The wolves go see this seer wolf (can't remember her name) and then the seer wolf gets her throat torn out by the Night Hunters (bad guys/wolves). Then the Night Hunters get in a fight with the wolf Bran, and he dies. Pitty. Bran was my favorite wolf! Then the remaining wolves, Huttser, Palla, Fell, Larka and Kar cross a frozen river.  Fell falls though the ice and supposedly drowns. I don't think he really died because the sequel is called Fell. Then Palla and Huttser disappear, leaving Kar and Larka. Kel gets caught in a fire and Larka thinks he's dead. (he's not. I know because I've gotten to a chapter where you find out Kar isn't dead.) Poor Larka is all on her own for a bit and then she meets this eagle named...something that starts with an 'sk'. Note: all those characters die between chapters 3 and 9. it's crazy. 

I've gotten to the part where Morgra is discussing an evil plan with her sidekick raven named Kraar. Kraar is an idiot. I'm going to finish the book because I still wanna read the sequel and I want to know how the story ends. I don't think I'll  read these books again. the guy who rights them has an uncomfortable fascination with killing people/wolves!

The reason I'm reading these books is because they are on Ruth's favorite book list on facebook. I want to know. why. btw, Ruth, if you're read this, let me tell you something. YOU ARE CRAZY!
