This is actually the first thing I've written for fanfiction.net in a while. It's not great or anything, and it's kind of short, but at least it's got my creative writing skills started again.
I've been so swamped with writing stuff for school (Mrs. Mancini, can you please give us less essay assignments?), and it's good to write something for fun again.
Here's my fanfic page where you can find a link to the story:
Here's some pictures of the camera. These pictures will also hopefully be the last I take with my crappy camera cell phone.
I also want to thank all the commenters on this blog. All of your comments and the thought that someone is actually reading this blog make me warm and fuzzy inside. :D

Brendan Fraser is going to be playing Mo (Silvertongue). I loved him in the Mummy. :D
Here's some pictures from the movie:

Pattinson was the guy who played Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. He's British, but can speak perfectly with an American accent, and he has apparently read all the books in the Twilight series.
He wasn't how I pictured Edward in the book, but, after looking after thinking about it, I think he could probably play Edward. He at least looks good enough.
"Erik Feig, Summit Entertainment’s President of Production, stated, “It's always a challenge to find the right actor for a part that has lived so vividly in the imaginations of readers but we took the responsibility seriously and are confident, with Rob Pattinson, that we have found the perfect Edward for our Bella in TWILIGHT."
The actress Kristen Stewart will be playing Bella.
Check out Stephenie's site for the full article and how she feels about the actor Summit chose:
Production for the movie is going to start in February of 2008.

I found this on amazon. Is this really the cover for the fourth Maximum Ride novel? It's pretty weird looking, not like any of the other covers. Oh well, I just hope the story's good.
Anyway, Maximum Ride: The Final Warning is supposed to be coming out March 17, 2008.

Johnny Depp's new movie with director Tim Burton is: Sweeny Todd and the Demon Barber of Fleet Street. It's an adaptaion of the musical, and it looks like its going to be pretty interesting. What more could you want from a movie? It's got murder, musical numbers, and Johnny Depp!
First, Friday: Ok, Friday's performance was either really bad or hilariously good, it depends on how you look at it. At the show we ended up improvising A LOT of it and we made it funny. Ok, half the time people were laughing at our mistakes, but what's the difference? The audiance couldn't stop laughing, and I think most of the people enjoyed it.
Saturday: Saturday's performance was almost perfect! We were totally serious and everyone had their lines basically memorized. It was a good show.
If I have time I might be able to post pictures from Saturday night's show.

I'm really worried. Not about the going on stage and acting part. It's the fact that we're not ready! A lot of our practices have been cancelled, and we haven't even had a dress rehearsal yet! There's just three practices this week. I hope we'll be able to pull it all together, or at least not make complete fools of ourselves.

This summary is off of Stephenie's website:
The basic premise: The Host takes place after a bodysnatchers-style invasion of the earth. We (the humans) lost. Our narrator is Wanderer, one of the invading "souls," who struggles to navigate all the bewildering challenges that come with living inside a human body. She was forewarned about these challenges—the overwhelming emotions, the stunning physical responses, the glut of senses, the too vivid dreams and memories… However, there was one challenge Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body, human survivor Melanie Stryder, refuses to fade away into oblivion the way she should. Melanie lingers as an angry presence in Wanderer's head, holding on to her human secrets and filling Wanderer's thoughts with visions of the man Melanie loves—Jared, another human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer yearns for the man she's never met. Outside forces combine to make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, and, working together, they set off to search for the man they both love. It's possibly the first love triangle that only involves two bodies.
It sounds a little confusing but definitly very interesting. Even though it's not Breaking Dawn I'm really looking foward to reading this new novel from Stephenie Meyer.

Anyway, I have started reading Les Miserables by Victor Hugo for school. And I love it. I'm surprised a book published in the 1860's can still be so good. In fact, I think this is the first book that I have been forced to read for school (not counting the Book Thief) that I have really liked since the third grade.*
I really really want to go see Les Mis on Broadway, but since I have absolutely no money right now that's going to have to wait a while. Right now I settle for renting the DVD.
* The book I liked in the third grade was the Mouse and the Motorcycle.

Info processing is boring. How did I even get in this class?? I don't think I even chose it as an elective. The teacher is nice though. And it's useful that I'm able to go on the internet during homeroom (thats how I'm posting this now).
My honors english class is waayy hard. But I'm dealing with it.
French is still the best class. I've got the same teacher and all my friends from last year's class.
Anyone else seen Apple's new ipod nano? I think they're calling it the phatty version. It can play videos and will have a longer battery life.

My main problem is that I have to finish all of my honors english summer reading projects. And I'm having difficulty doing that. Because I can't stop procrastinating. And the back to school date is getting dangerously close.
I don't know about anyone else, but whenever I'm forced to do massive amounts of work for a school book it totally ruins the novel for me. I mean, I read The Book Thief earlier this year and I loved it. Still loved it after rereading. But when I had to read it again for my projects I began to dislke it. I'm so worried about what the teacher wants to see in my notes and how I should answer these paragraph long questions that I can't just enjoy the fablous writing.
On a different topic: Finished Eclipse. Rocked my socks off royally and then some. I don't know if I can survive waiting another year for Braking Dawn(the 4th book) to come out.
