This is a countdown to my Bat Mitzvah. (Visit my mom's blog if you don't know what a Bar/Bat Mitzvah is.)
Yes, we got the date for my Bat Mitzvah today! And, the coolest thing is, it falls exactly on my 13th birthday! That's possible because my birthday will be on a Saturday. Isn't that great? I know, I'm only nine, almost ten, but we need to know.
Oh, speaking of grandmas, here's what mine said today:
Me: "Hi Grandma!"
Me: "How're ya doin?"
Me: "Grandma, guess what!"
Me: "My Bat Mitzvah is on January 5, 2013!"
Her: "That's great! Let me go write that down."
At this point, I repeated this to Ms. Witty and Big Pain, who, of course, burst out laughing.
My grandma's so organized, she has a checklist for cooking Thanksgiving dinner!
I love her!
Aren't you so happy for me?
I am loving my new computer so much! Thanks mom, Big Pain, my aunt, my uncle, my girl cousin, my boy cousin, my other boy cousin, and their visiting exchange student, even. Thanksthanksthanksthanksthanksthanksthanksthanksthanksthanksthanksthanksthanksthanksthanksthanksthanksthanksthanksthanksthanksthanks THANK YOU!!!
Okay here's the computer Big Pain picked out:
Now here's the separate mouse they picked out:
And here's the case they picked out:
I like 'em and I think they're perfect. Thank you!
I donated $250 to the Heifer Project to buy a water buffalo, which we couldn't raise enough money for in second grade. But now I've done it! I raised money through ChipIn, and I owe thanks to:
Mom, who gave a lot of money
Big Pain, $10
My grandpa, $10
Dashery Jewelry, $10
And I want to say thanks! I couldn't have done it without your help.
This means my mom should pay me $25: A penny for every post I've written.
Make that $25.01: One to grow on.
Let's celebrate! Yay! Yay! Yay! *Dance, dance, disco, karaoke, robot, dance, sing, jump...*
ONE AWESOME CELEBRATION AND TWO GALLONS OF ROOT BEER LATER...
Yay! Yay! Yay! Take that modern society!
THIS POST HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO YOU BY... YOU!
How many posts have you written?
"The Eastern chipmunk can produce two litters a year, with up to five young each. Thus within a decade, since cartoon chipmunks never die, there will be thousands of talking, singing chipmunks running around the animation universe, far more than the ecosystem can tolerate. They will begin showing up everywhere: stampeding through 'The Simpsons,' mucking up Japanese anime, driving Clifford the Big Red Dog bonkers. Earplug sales will soar as they sing their electronically manipulated heads off."
That just made my day. Click here to read the whole review.
Until someone did something very heroic.
I dropped out.
(And the bongo drums I got for Hanukkah are going to be fixed! We bought them 'cause they were a little wiggley.)

Okay, desist. Cease and desist.
I'm so happy! I was the only girl in the final 4 people. There was Ninja Bunny, Dude, another dude, and the fabulous MOI. All the girls were cheering for me.
The school Spelling Bee is on January 15th, giving me plenty of time to study.
Wish me loads of luck!!!
PS: I sent a text to my girl cousin in New York.
Here's what I said:
"Hi ______(her name)! It's _______ (my name). Today we had our class spelling bee and guess who's going to the school spelling bee? That's right. From my class there's me and (_________ my name)_________(boy from my class). From the other class is ________ (boy's name) and ________ (girl's name). I'm not sure about _______ (girl's name) though. Hope you're having a good day!!! :-)
_______ (my name)
And she said:
"Congratulashons thet's grate!"
Here's the link:
Wasn't that just so sweet?
Just something to complain about.

"Daddy, I WANT a squirrel!"
WE WANT OUR MONEY BACK!

It's about, well, you get the point. My group is doing the Boston Tea Party!
"I'm the narrarator."
Can't spell that right either!!!
Whatever. That's my most repeated line. I say it 3 times.
Wish me luck! I'll tell you how it goes!
Bye World!!! Bye Internet!!! Bye America!!! (Bye Linda!!!)

So I said I've got a Oklahoma quarter, right? Of course I'm right, I'm always right. So it was all grimy, and so we bought a bottle of Coca Cola and dropped it in. In about 2 hours, it was all nice and de-grimed.
I'm going to give awards to all my friends for their great costumes.

Thanks for supporting your shelter - Have fun!
FIRST NAME: the Cupcake
NAME OF ANIMAL SHELTER: Humane Society of Missouri
LOCATION OF SHELTER: St. Louis, Missouri
WHY IS YOUR SHELTER SPECIAL TO YOU?
Last year when I was in third grade, we read the book Shiloh. When we finished the book, we had a bake sale and raised money for the Humane Society of Missouri. We brought the money and blankets in and got a tour of the shelter. It amazed me how many pets were in there. The people giving us the tour told us how hard it was to stay on schedule. If someone was late to take a dog outside, they would probably end up cleaning up after that poor dog. The following week, my friend adopted a kitten. She wanted to give a good home to another pet. (She already had 1 cat and 1 dog.) I want to help in a different way, because I already have 2 dogs. The Humane Society brings back memories. When I was little, I had a lemonade stand with my brother. He gave money to a back-to-school charity, and I gave money to the Humane Society. I think that the Humane Society is a special place and that they’d be grateful to receive 1,000.00 worth of treats.

"Hi Cupcake! Guess what I got you!"
"What? A new car? A million dollars? A bunny? Oh, thankya thankya thankya mom!"
"No... Guess again."
"Okay, I give up."
"YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! That's even better! But I still want a bunny."
It starts at 5:45 and ends at 7:00 every Tuesday. Because it will be so late, my mom's getting my "Emergency Cell-Phone" all ready. We're so excited!
When the Cards score 6, drinks are only $0.25 at On the Run!
Like it will be tomorrow.
We made 10 dollars!
My mom matched the money so we have 20 dollars!
We took pictures of all the ridiculously cool things. Here they are:
These are blocks of aluminum cans I think, quite like what I brought in.
This is me putting a bag of cans into a wheelbarrow thingy that they used to weigh the cans.
More me putting the cans in.
This is the machine that made the cans into giant blocks. It was a bit like WALL-E the movie.
More of the machine.
I hope this post has inspired you to recycle. I am going to save more cans
because it was so cool!
Harry Potter and the Son of Poseidon
The wand-- the wand Harry loved, the only wand he was comfortable with. Why was he letting this stranger try it out? He was definitely not a wizard.
Anaklusmos- Riptide-- Percy's beloved pen-sword. Why was he letting this stranger use it? This guy was NOT a demigod.
The sword felt strange in Harry's hands. He kept feeling the urge to yell "Expeliarmus!" or "Protego!" And what was "Celestial Bronze"? The only sword he knew was the sword of Godric Gryffindor and that was goblin made. And what was written on the sword Harry was holding? So many questions.
Why was Percy holding a wand? He didn't know any spells. He didn't have magic powers. He couldn't kill Medusa with a wand. He couldn't injure the god of war with a wand. It was pretty useless to him. And what was a muggle?
“Can I have my sword back?” said Percy.
“Okay, then can I have my wand?” asked Harry. They swapped.
“Thanks—wait. What’s your name?”
“Harry. What’s yours again?”
Suddenly, a girl no older than twelve ran by. She stopped to catch her breath and introduce herself. She was Dorothy Gale from Kansas. She was running from the Wicked Witch of the West, who was flying on a broomstick very close behind. Suddenly Harry said “I have a broomstick!” Dorothy looked at him in surprise. She called her little black dog (“Here Toto!”) and ran off to hide. As soon as she had hidden, they heard a cackle. They turned around and saw a green woman who was definitely the Wicked Witch of the West. And yes, she was on a broomstick. She jumped off to ask directions.
“Have you seen a little girl about yay tall (she indicated with her hands) and a little black dog?”
“No.” they replied together.
“Are you sure?”
“Yes.” they replied.
“Well okay then!” said the Witch. “Bye!” And she hopped on her broomstick and flew away. But don't say the end yet because the Witch was still suspicious. She was just circling them overhead. She was going to get that girl if it killed her!
Circling overhead made her dizzy. Suddenly, everything was white and wet. She was flying through a cloud. The birds were below her. They looked at her wondering what the heck was going on. This wasn’t a hawk—it was too big. But they still flew away in a hurry. They weren’t taking any chances.
Down below, Taylor Swift ran by being chased by screaming fans. The witch saw her and thinking the girl was Dorothy, swooped down to attack her. Before the ambulance arrived to carry her away on a stretcher, she got to see the girl’s face. This was definitely not Dorothy.
The Witch walked away, defeated. Maybe the boys were telling the truth.
“Wanna play Quidditch?” asked Harry
“Okay! Suit yourself.” said Harry as he took out his wand. “Accio firebolt!” he yelled. Moments later he was flying through the air. “Woo-hoo!” he yelled.
This story symbolizes how much I love Harry Potter and Percy Jackson, and how much I hate Taylor Swift.
My grandma got him for me. The brand is Fuzz that Wuzz. He's made out of recycled plastic bottles.
Key words: Halloween. Owl.
What does this mean to you? And don't say Harry Potter, because I was Hermione last year. And there's this too about that.
Seriously? Oh my god. Is that a hint?
I'm going to be Athena! If you don't know who Athena is, she's the Greek goddess of wisdom, and one of my fictional idols. Here are some pictures.
Here is her story:
Athena, otherwise known as Minerva is a daughter of the god Zeus and the Titan's daughter Metis, who was Titaness of prudence. Zeus swallowed her in the form of a fly so that if she had a boy, he would not overthrow Zeus.
She had a girl.
My theory is that Athena grew up inside her father's head.
One day Zeus had a really really bad headache. So Hephaestus, the god of fire, took a hammer and split Zeus's head open. Out came Athena fully grown dressed in full battle armor with gray eyes. For more of her story check out this book I like. Here's a picture link. And here's an Amazon link.

PS: When I find a place, I'll be recycling a lot of cans.
I made candles and batik and tie-dye and pottery. I ate chickpeas and tomatoes and grasshopper pie. Yum!
Guess what. I made FRIENDS! Isn't that great?
And PS: My 3rd annual swim party is TOMORROW! Read about last year's party here. Actually, it's more about the soda than the party. But who cares!
I'm going to make a special dinner for them the night they come home. Any suggestions?
Yay! She misses me. I miss her too.
But... Sob! She's sad.
I do what I can to bring her a smile. I sent her a card game, a roll of duct tape, and a couple of enormous water guns. The card game came back because the camp has a no package policy (except for books and magazines), which I had forgotten; the boys' camp is much less strict about enforcement, so I've always gotten away with sending her brother goofy stuff without even realizing I was breaking the rules.
So I bought an armload of books, which I'll send tomorrow. Take that, camp regulations!
I also sent her and her friend each a letter. Cupcake's letter contained 25 riddles, while friend's letter contained 25 answers. Clever, huh?
Check out my blog for the true Hollywood story of how Cupcake learned to ride a bicycle.
Then I trundle back up the driveway, hoping for something tomorrow. I did receive an email today with a cabin photo, which I'd share except that Cupcake gets nervous at the thought of publishing photos of her; you'll just have to accept my assurance that she looks good and it appears that she is bunking with her friend/cousin from Chicago, which we'd been afraid might not happen.
But I haven't gotten any letters yet.
I'm sure they're on their way. Right?
So, to kill time until the letters begin pouring in, instead of tap dancing, I'm unveiling Cupcake's new, updated avatar:
Doesn't it look just like her?
FeeFiFoto, aka Cupcake's mom.
My rock, FuFu
Happy Photo Hunters!
I mixed it, poured it, (licked the spoon,) and put it in the oven. Did I forget to mention that the recipe called for a 1/2 cup of instant coffee? So now they taste like coffee.
But they are fantastic.
I regret to inform you that this was the second time you've forgotten to take me off before you step in the shower. You may realize that when I am wet, you see spotted vision. And we both know that that is not good. The only solution is that you stop being so stupid. Give my regards to your necklace.
You have been warned.
I GOT HARRY POTTER TICKETS! I GOT HARRY POTTER TICKETS! I GOT TICKETS! TO HARRY POTTER! ON JULY 15 TH! THAT'S THE DAY IT COMES OUT!
Can anyone, ANYONE guess WHY I am so depressed that I have to blog about it? ANYONE?
OOPS! False alarm! Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince comes out two days before I go to camp. (July 15)
But I'm still bored.
I like fiction books. Books with things that are impossible, like magic, monsters, and way too many near-death experiences. (Well, I bet lots of people have near death experiences.) But anyway, they're still cool. Oh. And don't forget humor. LOTS and LOTS of humor.
I also like recommending books. But when people recommend books to me, all I need to know is a little about the book. Then I read it. And I love it.
What do you like to read?
Hey-- stop laughing!
Her sister ran WAY ahead of me, Enchilada, and Enchilada's mom. She got 3rd place in girls, 14 and under. At the end, I ran WAY far ahead of Enchilada and her mom and sprinted past the finish line.
IT FELT GREAT!
Update 2/14/09: Happy Valentine's Day! I'm still saving up the cans.
Update 12/31/08: If you'd like to see the website, Heifer International is running on my Adsense.
Update 12/29/08: When I find a place to crush cans, I'll start that. But if by this way I raise enough, I'll buy a water buffalo. Maybe a water buffalo and some other animals.
Have you seen the widget I've put up? It's right on top. I'm raising $250. (I'm not gonna get it all from people who donate, no. I'm also recycling cans for money.) Anyway, I'm gonna get $250, then donate it to the Heifer Project, and buy a water buffalo. If you don't know what the Heifer Project is, it's basically a group that gets animals to help needy people. A water buffalo does a lot of things. (It's not for me. I've got Voldemort.) You can donate through the blue widget. Click it, and enter how much you want to pay through PayPal.
This will be fun. I'll keep you posted.
IT'S THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL! LAST DAY OF THIRD GRADE! WOOHOO!!!!!
Art: I made a really great mask of Violet
Language Arts: Animal Expo rocks! PS: So do albino bottlenose dolphins.
Social Studies: MARKET DAY!!! WAGONS WEST!!! SAIL AMERICA!!! (New York is cool!)
There's probably more, I just am not thinking about them.
PS: Happy almost summer! School's out on Friday for me, and on Thursday, for the end of year party, we're having a CARWASH! (Only teachers and parents, tips go to the 3rd grade teachers.) (It was my mom's idea.) On Friday, I get to throw Froot Loops at the 6th graders while they do their graduation procession. (Best part of the year!) Sadly, Big Pain did not stay at my school for 6th grade, so I do not get to throw Froot Loops at him.
Anyway, she also made a video of Poppy. It is 26 seconds long, and called "Poppy In Motion".
Wish me luck!
Actually, I'm changing Voldemort's name. Her real name is Violet. This picture is our new dog, Poppy. From now on, you'll be hearing from Violet AND Poppy! Isn't that great-tastic?
She's a rescue dog. Her breed is Tibetan Terrier, just like Violet. I just took her on a walk, and I LOVE her!
Anyway, I'm sad to report I will not be doing Friday Jokes anymore. It's become too hard.
Don't worry, I'm funny enough.
PS: Just in case, I have the last of the series:
So when Wendy celebrated her 1st birthday, her favorite present was...
A Jack in the Box.
I know, I know. You're saying "GET TO THE POINT, CUPCAKE!"
Okay, okay. Sheesh.
This book's about Greek mythology. So I saw a truck as I was re-reading this book for the zillionth time. Why? I like it. Anyway, the truck said "Tyson". Why's that so great? In this book, there's a Cyclops named Tyson. Then, I drove by a church. It said something about a labyrinth. You see what I mean? Then, this morning, I watched SpongeBob. Would you believe it, one of the creators was named "Zeus". I did not pay attention to his last name. Just his first name. Today, after that incident, my mom did a crossword puzzle. One of the words was "Tyson". She was like "Cupcake, look!" and I was like "Come on." Tonight, she said "For dinner, we're having leftovers. We have BBQ beef and stir fry and Greek food." I was like "MOM!" and she went "What?" I said "Greek food?"
They named her Wendy.
Q: Where did Burger King and Dairy Queen get married?
A: the White Castle! LOL!
PS: This will be a chain of fast food jokes made by moi.
Q: What do you call a person who doesn't toot in public?
A private tooter! Ha ha ha! LOL! Thanks Bamboo!
There's a giant who lives in top of a mountain, and he has a lot of treasure. There are people who live at the bottom of the mountain called Trids. The Trids are always going up the mountain and trying to steal his treasure. Somehow, he always finds them and kicks them down. One day, a rabbi comes into town. He hears the stories, and goes up the mountain. He steals the treasure, and the finds the giant. He says "Why didn't you kick me down? I stole your treasure." The giant laughs and says "Silly rabbi! Kicks are for Trids!"
Why don't buffaloes travel with cellphones?
This way. Keep going down.
Because they don't want to pay roaming charges.
I know, I don't get it either.
PS: Rockstar, if you read this, HAPPY 9th BIRTHDAY!
PPS: I have a Friday Joke for tomorrow. Come here to see it.
What's the difference between a buffalo and a bison?
The answer's down here.
You can't wash your hands in a buffalo.
Okay, I give up. I don't have a joke. I'm sorry.
No, I don't have a joke.
Wait! Don't leave! Okay, I got NOTHING.
Can you help me out?
Q: Where do generals keep their armies?
Go down when you know it or give up.
A: In their sleevies!
Joke courtesy of Ms. Witty.
Chewy meat who?
Chewy meat in Chicago?
C'mon, say it out loud. Chewy meat? Shall we meet? C'mon, it's funny.
A NEW DESIGN!
Yes, it's true. I'm thankful to Ana at Chica and Pumuckl. She made me this GORGEOUS design. Thanks Ana! You ROCK!
I've had some minor changes. Name, identity. Now's the major one: DESIGN. Don't you love, love, LOVE it?
Two cupcakes are sitting in an oven. One turns to the other and says "Man, it's getting HOT in here." The other one turns to the other and says "Ahhhhh! A talking cupcake!"
Happy Friday Jokes! Ha, ha, ha. I'm doing Photo Hunters tomorrow. See you then!
Look for "The Cupcake!" Yup. That's me!
Tune in on Friday for my cupcake- related hahalarious joke.
Then, tune in on Saturday for the biggest change of all.
Duh, duh, DUHHHHHH.

Hello, is anyone even here?
Okay, I'll give you the first one. My name's going from "The Big Hannah Montana Fan" to...

I found this at: MakesYouLaugh - Cry Without It . Make sure the voulume is on!
First I'll say the rules.
1. Each blogger starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
3. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
4. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged and to read your blog.
5. For the recipients, leave a comment for the person who tagged you, so they can go and read your answers. Let the fun begin. Tell me more about yourselves so I can get to know you better...
Okay, here are 8 things about me:
- I'm a bookaholic.
- I have glasses.
- I am going to sleepaway camp for only my second time this summer!
- I have been to 3 of the seven continents (one which I live in.)
- I have never been skiing.
- I am in third grade. (And it's the best third grade in the world.)
- The other four grandchildren are convinced that they are the favorite, but none of them have realized I'm the best of all of us.
- I like blogging, but Big Pain thinks it's stupid
Did you like it?
If you liked that, this one's even cooler.
Here's the first one:
It's winter. It's cold. There are those times where anything will freeze. Except computers. Those freeze in a different way. On to the story, anyway. Big Pain was pouring water out of his window in the car. It froze in 3 seconds. Ms. Witty and I tried it. It worked! So all of a sudden, the day was off to a good start, just because of a fun discovery.
PS: We had a picture of it, but we can't find it.
Let's move to a different setting: summer. It's hot. You're bored. You decide to fry eggs on your driveway. That's exactly what Big Pain and I did. We cracked them. And guess what? I won! Mine fried first! That's how you can brighten up your own summer day.
Are you ready? OK.
Last story, coming up:
Why did the guy take a prune to the dance?
Do you think you know the answer? Go down when you're ready.
Because he couldn't find a date!
Ha, ha, ha!
I saw this on TV Monday night. Isn't it hilarious?!?!
"Hello, everyone! My name is Daisy the Curly Cat. When my friend Hannah Fanna asked me to do a guest post on her blog, I was very excited. I thought real hard, and decided that I would like to tell you about a special part of where I live in south Florida. Sometimes it is called the "River of Grass." Do you know what it is? If you guessed the Florida Everglades you are correct!
The Everglades is teaming with wildlife! I live less than a mile from the edge of the Florida Everglades! The red "X" marks where I live, and the edge of the Everglades is on the left. This means I am lucky enough to see many interesting birds and animals in my own backyard
Everglades National Park is the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States and is one of the largest wetlands in the world. The Florida Everglades is a large marshland ecosystem, with the main feature being sawgrass marsh. The water and sawgrass form a shallow river that is 100 miles long and 60 miles wide! There are also small islands of trees that are called hardwood hammocks and something called cypress swamps and pine rockland.
Here are just a few of the beautiful creatures I have seen in my very own backyard:
These birds are called White Ibis. It is a wading bird, and catches fish with its funny-looking curved beak. This bird is endangered.
Can you spot the alligator in this picture? He swims around in the lake behind my house.
Here is a lizard. There are many lizards living in my backyard. I think they look like tiny alligators!
This is a Wood Stork. I do not see this kind of bird very often, and they are also endangered.
Finally, here is a Great Blue Heron. This bird is the largest heron in North America and can have a six foot wingspan!
It is very important to protect our environment so wildlife can continue to survive. And remember to keep watching your own backyard, because you never know what you might see!"
Thank you Daisy. Ladies and gentlemen, let's give her a round of applause! Yay!
