Famous Last Words

Not the awesome song by My Chemical Romance, but the actual words. I found this weird funny video on mentalfloss.com . Its a short video about some ironic famous last words narrated by the Grim Reaper himself.

Best of all its in Broadway style!

Since Halloween is coming up in a few days I thought I'd post this too, in case someone needs any ideas. They're Epic Halloween Costumes.

Fall has been pretty awesome so far. We've been having a bunch of those perfect fall days we're the air is all crisp and cool, but still warm cause of the sun. And, of course, all the leaves are changing colors. :)

My classes at my new school aren't that bad either. I'm surprised to say this, but most of them are leaning towards the easy side.

The only thing really annoying me right now is my art teacher. He's way too strict when it comes to grading people's art and most of the time he acts like he has permanent PMS.

Here's one of the projects I did recently in his class. It's a still life. Its not supposed to be yellow, but I did take it with my cell phone camera so maybe that's why. I sort of like it though; it gives it sort of an old timey look.

Has anyone read Inkdeath yet??

^Best cover ever!^

I just noticed it came out the other day when I was in Borders. Its $25 dollars though, so I'm ordering it off amazon.com for cheaper.
If anyone's read it yet, you have to tell me how you like it, because I can't wait to read it.

New Twilight Trailer

Summit Entertainment saved the best trailer for last. This Twilight trailer is amazing!! I think, that after seeing this, I have total confidence that the movie is going to be great.

I think my favorite scene has to be the one at the end were Edward says, "You are my life now."

Thoughts on the trailer/movie?

So around last week I went into the store Pet-Smart for the first time in my life. I didn't actually own a pet (long story as to why I was there in the first place). Soooo...I was completely taken by surprise when I saw that they had cats for sale there. And being the enormous sap I am I begged my parents to come and see them and adopt them. Turns out they're saps too cause in no time we were filling out the adoption papers.
They're called the Forgotten Cats Foundation and they take in cats and kittens off the street. This is how I adopted Gidget, my new kitten. She's 3 months old, a calico, and completely and utterly adorable. Gigi was found in on the streets Trenton, NJ, and was the only one to survive out of her litter.

She's been running all over the house sniffing and trying to eat/play with everything. And she purrs like a freakin' lawn mower. :D

Here's some pics of her:

A New Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy?!?

I realize I've been talking a lot about books lately, but I just HAD to talk about this. Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and the others written by Douglas Adams are some of my absolute favorite books ever. In the words of Eoin Colfer:

"The Guide is a slice of satirical genius. A marvel of quantum tomfoolery. A dissection of the absurdities of our human condition. A space odyssey that forces us to face ourselves and collapse in hysterics. Imagine if Messrs. Hawking and Fry were locked in a room with the entire cast of Monty Python and forced to write a book which would subsequently be edited by Pink Floyd, then the result would need a lot of work before it could be cut from Douglas Adams’ first draft."

As you probably know already, Douglas Adams died before he could write anything after Mostly Harmless, the fifth book. :(

Which brings us to the big news: Eoin Colfer will be writing the sixth novel!!

Eoin Colfer is the author of the awesome Artemis Fowl series among other books.

"My first reaction was semi-outrage that anyone should be allowed to tamper with this incredible series. But on reflection I realised that this is a wonderful opportunity to work with characters I have loved since childhood and give them something of my own voice while holding onto the spirit of Douglas Adams and not laying a single finger on his five books.
Once again I am terrified by a Hitchhiker book and this time it is my own. I feel more pressure to perform now than I ever have with my own books, and that is why I am bloody determined that this will be the best thing I have ever written. And if it isn’t then I will make sure that the cover is extremely pretty."

So what do you guys think? Will he write something worthy of the Guide to the Galaxy name or will he completely screw up the series?

P.S. I may *crosses fingers* be getting a kitten soon! We submitted adoption forms for a 3 month old calico kitten and right now its pending.
