Twilight Fans Unite!

My parents drove me for 2 hours to get to Borders bokstore in Bridgewater, New Jersey for the Twilight and New Moon booksigning. Stephenie Meyer, the author, was there answering questions and signing copies of the books. I had a great time, and I got to meet tons of other Twilight fanatics, not to mention the author Stephenie Meyer herself. Here's some pictures I took
My signed copy of Twilight.

Me and Stepheine Meyer{and someone's thumb :) }
Two girls who were standing in line in front of me, waiting to get their books signed.
Meredith, Shawn, Amanda, and Caitlyn, four Twilight fans who I made friends with during the booksigning.

And finally, here's a picture of one of the balloons I snagged from the bookstore. It says 'I love Edward Cullen' curtesy of my black sharpie marker. :D

Crappy Poem...

Here's a crappy poem I ended up scrawling in my notebook today in science class. My friends have told me it's funny, so I decided to post it here.

The subject science is one I adore,

But my physical science teacher is such a bore.

As I fall asleep in his class,

I can't help but think he's such an ass.

For giving us surprise quizzes that have to do with math,

And yelling at any kid in his path.

Please, oh please, don't let me fail,

Cause' if I do my parents will go off the rail.

Say goodbye to my iPod, cell phone, computer, and TV,

Now it's just studying for me…

What do you think?

Brand New Fanfic!

In a sudden burst of insanity I teamed up with another author from to write my second piece of Artemis Fowl fanfiction. It's called Artemis Fowl and the Starbucks Invasion. For those of you who are waiting for me to update Arty Cam, don't worry. I should be writing chapter 2 this weekend. Anyway, here's a look at the Starbucks invasion Chapter 1 if you're curious: This is my profile page, on account that every time I try linking to my actual story something goes wrong. Anyway, you'll have to sift through random quotes and tedious facts about me, but you should find a link to my story at the bottom of the page. Enjoy :D

How to destroy the Earth...

I stumbled upon this link in Tealin's blog. This website is pure genius. It's from a website by Sam Huges:
Destroying the Earth is harder than you may have been led to believe.

You've seen the action movies where the bad guy threatens to destroy the Earth. You've heard people on the news claiming that the next nuclear war or cutting down rainforests or persisting in releasing hideous quantities of pollution into the atmosphere threatens to end the world.


The Earth is built to last. It is a 4,550,000,000-year-old, 5,973,600,000,000,000,000,000-tonne ball of iron. It has taken more devastating asteroid hits in its lifetime than you've had hot dinners, and lo, it still orbits merrily. So my first piece of advice to you, dear would-be Earth-destroyer, is: do NOT think this will be easy.

This is not a guide for wusses whose aim is merely to wipe out humanity. I (Sam Hughes) can in no way guarantee the complete extinction of the human race via any of these methods, real or imaginary. Humanity is wily and resourceful, and many of the methods outlined below will take many years to even become available, let alone implement, by which time mankind may well have spread to other planets; indeed, other star systems. If total human genocide is your ultimate goal, you are reading the wrong document. There are far more efficient ways of doing this, many which are available and feasible RIGHT NOW. Nor is this a guide for those wanting to annihilate everything from single-celled life upwards, render Earth uninhabitable or simply conquer it. These are trivial goals in comparison.

This is a guide for those who do not want the Earth to be there anymore.
Here's the website for anyone who wants to see it:

In memory of the Crocodile Hunter...

I know this post is a little late, but anyway...
Steve Irwin died at 44 September 4th in a freak accident where he got stung in the heart by a sting ray while filming a documentary. I couldn't believe it when I first saw the news. He was a passionate enviromentalist, he cared a lot about animals, and his television shows were seen in over 100 countries on cable TV. Only about 3 people die every year from sting ray bites.
*sigh* Its sad. I grew up watching his shows. He was a great guy.

8th grade...

I started school the 5th. New school built this year for grades 8 and 9. I really don't like it. I don't like anything that requires me to get up at 5:30 am. grrr. Anyway, on the plus side the lockers are bigger (also harder to open) , and the cafeteria is better(but still has the same puke food) ;) Here's some pics I took outside of the school today:
