Happy New Year's Eve!

I'm going to a party at Rockstar's house tonight. Wynner and Smiley will be there too. Happy happy happy!

Wordless Wednesday: Dust, Dust Everywhere, It's In My House, It's In My Hair

See the dust?

What's This?

Yes, you may be saying that.

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!"

Her: "Hello!"

Me: "How're ya doin?"

Her: "Fine."

Me: "Grandma, guess what!"

Her: "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?

JSYK (Just So You Know)

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!!!

This Post Is Brought To You...

...via my new laptop! I got a laptop for my early birthday. I'm SO happy, I've wanted a laptop for so long. I'll show you what it looks like and it's mouse and case:

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 Did It!

Remember when I asked for money to buy a water buffalo for a needy family? Well, I did it!

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
Daisy, $1
Dashery Jewelry
, $10
iPentimento, $5

And I want to say thanks! I couldn't have done it without your help.

This Post is My 250th Post!

Wow! In about two years, I write 250 posts! That's sorta exciting, and sorta cool! Do you know what this means? Of course you don't.

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...*


Yay! Yay! Yay! Take that modern society!


How many posts have you written?

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from your Jewish, blogging, almost ten years old friend, the Cupcake!

I Fell Out Of My Chair... Laughing

My mom was reading The New York Times when my eyes fell upon three chipmunks. One in red, one in green, one in blue. I pulled out the page: It was a review on Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel. I started reading the review excitedly. Here is my favorite paragraph:

"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.


Wordless Wednesday: OMG

They make these too?!?!?!?!

More Smart Stuff

They said we had to do a GeoBee off to see who would represent the fourth grade in the Geography Bee.

Until someone did something very heroic.

I dropped out.


My camp reunion is on January 10, 2010. Only 5 days after my birthday! Yippee!

(And the bongo drums I got for Hanukkah are going to be fixed! We bought them 'cause they were a little wiggley.)

(And in 2 days is WiNtEr BrEaK! My cousins Moo and Mr. Moo are staying for the weekend!!)


Sorry, that was me screaming. "Why?" you ask. Because...


Thanks, feel free to applaud...

And applaud...

Okay, stop.

Wait! I liked that applause! Keep going...

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!"

Something To Brighten Up Your Day

One of my friends emailed me this. If you're not having a good day, watch this RIGHT NOW. And I mean PRONTO. IMMEDIATELY.

Here's the link:


Wasn't that just so sweet?

Nothing To Write About

My mom's Shift, CAPS LOCK, and Tab buttons aren't working because Big Pain spilled soda on the computer.

Just something to complain about.


I want that!

"Daddy, I WANT a squirrel!"

Board (Oops! I Mean BORED.)

At least I'm not the only one who's bored. I've got a friend who emails me three times a day. At least. We've got this Rosetta Stone puzzle from the British Museum that is a total, pure, 100% rip off. There are words covering the diagram on the front, and another diagram that is nothing alike.


(Hi mom!)

Take A Bow!

I did great. We got lots of applause and my grandparents gave me flowers. I'm really sad though, because now we don't have drama until spring, 5th grade. On the bright side, a boy I call Cocoa Puff came to our performance even though he left the school last year. On the sunny side up, for our cast party we got pizza (it was cut into squares. Grr :-C ) and Ted Drewes. It was wonderful.

Oh and PS?

I'm the narrator.

Oh and PPS?

My mom wrote about our play. Here's the link:


Oh and BTW?

Girl Cousin came in from college a few days ago. :-D

Wish Me Luck!!!

Today is the debut performance of our play, A Young Country. It's about the Revolutionary (Phew... big word and I didn't even spell it right. Spell check did. :-( )

Whatever, it's about the American Revoloution


Okay spellcheck, what is it?



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!

Hi World!!!

Hi Internet!!! Hi America!!! Hi mom!!! (Hi Linda!!!)

Bye World!!! Bye Internet!!! Bye America!!! (Bye Linda!!!)

Bye mom.

Wordless Wednesday: You Don't See This Every Day

going to chamber of secrets brb
see more Lolcats and funny pictures

One Of Those Funny Moments

So today, I'm working on a poster with a dude, and the dudes working next to us (the dudes are called Connie-Girl and Sir Puff) and Sir Puff sneezes and I say bless you and Connie-Girl said you're welcome. Just a brief glimpse of my day. Bye.

My State Is Great

So I like, um, like, have to do, like, a report on Oklahoma. So far for my "state in a bag" I have a Oklahoma state quarter and a few e-mails from my friend from camp who lives in Oklahoma. I'm working on drawing a basic map of it. I also have to pick a topic for my paragraph on Oklahoma. Whatever.Yeah. That's Oklahoma. Cool, huh? I've learned a lot about it. State bird, rock, butterfly, beverage, colors, meal, song, poem, dance, game animal, tree, animal, fish, motto, flag, and a LOT more. My mom says Oklahoma's not that cool (sorry citizens of Oklahoma) but I say it's a lot more interesting than you'd think.

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.



So I know it's not Halloween yet, but let me tell you about the school day. (Or at least, just the Halloween costumes.)

I'm going to give awards to all my friends for their great costumes.

Funniest: the unplanned trio of ketchup, mustard, and a hot dog
No, not that realistic

Buddiest: the Twister Twins, who wore spinners on their heads, Twister mat dresses, and go-go boots
Make this x2

Most Thrilling: Michael Jackson
Also the scariest person award

Most Appealing: Banana boy
Love this picture!

Most Magical: The two Hermiones
Way overused.

Best Costume Overall: ME! (And my friend, because our costumes go together.)

MeGuess who?

My mom's friend's son was corn. He wanted to win the corniest prize. I wonder if he won. I wonder if I can find a picture.


Yes, I know. If school ends at 3:30, what is the Cupcake doing on a computer at 3:43? Answer: I am writing from my aunt's computer in her first grade classroom. Oh, wait. You know that she does not do French anymore, right? Now she does first grade. It's weird. About three years ago I was in first grade, and I had Mrs. B. Last year there was another lady. And now it's my aunt.


Hi! Today was a good day, because any day that isn't a bad day is a good day. Aside from our field trip to the pumpkin farm being rescheduled for Wednesday, it wasn't too bad.

How was your day?

Stop laughing!

Greetings From The Land Of Lincoln!

I am in Chicago at my cousin's house. You have never heard of this cousin. I will call her and her twin brother Moo (my cousin) and Mr. Moo (her brother.) Okay? Yesterday I drove out here with Ms. Witty and Big Pain. But now I'm in the house of Moo and Mr. Moo. Don't worry, I'll be back in time for school. Peace out!


If you have a Youtube account too, my name is Peace2Cows. Here is a video my friend made:

Wordless Wednesday: Served With A Smile

Funky Rockin' Grooves

This is my hoops&yoyo video. It was super fun to make and super easy. I'm not sure that I can post it on my blog, so here's a link:


You can make one if you view it, so VIEW IT!

Bad Juju Bamboo!

Bamboo and I had some bad luck emails. If you remember this post about my texting, it's sorta like that.

You will be crushed by raining purple elephants and pizzas with olives. Yuck.




You will drown in chocolate sauce.

You will be trampled by ducks.


Just so you know, I wrote everything that wasn't in all CAPS.

FIRST NAME: the Cupcake

AGE: 9

NAME OF ANIMAL SHELTER: Humane Society of Missouri

LOCATION OF SHELTER: St. Louis, Missouri


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.

Will you enter too? Wait-- you have to be ages 7-18 to enter. It's not that hard. Enter here.

Wordless Wednesday: My Mini Wheats Aren't Mini!

Greek Speak Starts Tomorrow!

Okay, I said I'd explain. It's at a Greek Orthodox church. But I am Jewish. I went to Greece this summer. One of the teachers at my school inspired me to learn Greek. I started researching. My mom helped out too. She called someone who knows the Greek stuff. She recommended a Greek church. My mom kept researching. One day, she announced it just like she announced that she'd gotten my brother a piano teacher oh so long ago.

"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!


I have a name for my owl. Since Athena was a maiden goddess, I will name it Olive. If it were a boy owl, it would be Oliver. Isn't that a great name?

6... Is A Serious Number... (Number)

Six... Is the fingers on your hand plus your thumba (thumba) There's a lot of numbers it's true (it's true) like 8, 31, and 22! But 6 (6) is a serious number. If you've ever been number curious, this numba 6 stuff is serious! (Haaaaaaaaaaaaw!)

When the Cards score 6, drinks are only $0.25 at On the Run!

Like it will be tomorrow.

Taking Foreign Language To A New Level

My mom signed me up for Greek school! It's at a Greek Orthodox church. They are not doing the religious stuff, just speaking Greek. I'm super-cited!

Ladies And Gentlemen, I Have An Announcement!

After about a year of saving cans, we finally turned them in! We expected about five dollars to come out of the whole thing. Boy, were we wrong.

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!

My Story: Harry Potter And The Son Of Poseidon

This is a story I had to write for summer homework. It was really fun to do. Let me warn you: if you have never read Harry Potter or the Percy Jackson books, do not read this. You will be going "What?" and "Huh?" every 2 seconds.

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?”

“I’m Percy.”

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.


Oh well.

The Witch walked away, defeated. Maybe the boys were telling the truth.

“Wanna play Quidditch?” asked Harry

“Umm—No thanks.”

“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.

The end.

This story symbolizes how much I love Harry Potter and Percy Jackson, and how much I hate Taylor Swift.

Update On The Update

This is my owl. I'm not sure what to name him. Something smart and creative. Do you have any ideas?

My grandma got him for me. The brand is Fuzz that Wuzz. He's made out of recycled plastic bottles.

Seriously! If you have any good names, please e-mail me or leave a comment. Thanks!

Halloween Update

Yesterday my helmet arrived in the mail. It looks great!

But It's Only August 19th!

Is what my mom keeps telling me. There's also "But Halloween is 2 months away! We'll get you an owl in time!"

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.

Welcome Home Me!

I am back from Camp Thunderbird where I did Riflery, Blacksmithing, a bit of Farm, and I tried waterskiing, which didn't go very well.

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!

Counting Down To Cupcake's Return

It's Saturday. Cupcake and her brother come home Wednesday afternoon. Yay!

Cupcake Update

Cupcake and her brother come home a week from today. The month has gone by very quickly for me. I'm looking forward to hugs and cuddles. Cupcake writes that the camp had a sibling dinner but she couldn't sit with her brother because he was away on a three day canoe trip. Sigh. I wonder if she chose someone else's brother to sit with instead. What's your guess?

I'm going to make a special dinner for them the night they come home. Any suggestions?

Welcome Cupcake Bakery Customers

Welcome to my readers and Cupcake's readers. Cupcake's gone for another week and a half so you're stuck with me. I'm still getting up to three letters a day from her, which makes up for the fact that I get only two letters a week from her brother. All of her letters have a continuing theme: she misses me.

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.

Cupcake Update

Sorry not to have updated. The letters have been pouring in and I just forget to post about them. Sometimes, between me and my parents, we get six in one day. Cupcake is having a good time at camp. She requested that I remind her never to try waterskiing ever again. She's taking blacksmithing, which will come in oh so handy should we ever get a horse. She says the food is great, which must mean the expectations I set for her here at home are pretty darn low. And she keeps send me song sheets from singalongs. I wonder if I'm supposed to study and rehearse them so we can have singalongs when she comes home.

Still No Word From The Cupcake

But I trundle down to the mailbox every morning with a spring in my step and a song in my heart.

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.

While The Cupcake's Away...

I'm filling in for her, with strict instructions to blog about whatever she writes about in her letters from camp.

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.

Photo Hunters: Rock(s)

Well, you may remember that about a year ago, I had a pet rock contest. Well, that's rocks, so here are pictures from that contest:

My rock, FuFu

The Rockettes

And if you'd like to see who won, watch my award ceremony.

Happy Photo Hunters!

I Made Brownies!

So like, yesterday? I was like, so bored? and I was like complaining? Like, a lot? So my mom's like "Hey Cupcake. There's a recipe for brownies. You wanna try it out?" So I was like "Sure!" So I got out the sugar, flour, salt, cocoa powder, and...

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.

Note To Self:

Dear Cupcake,

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.

Your beautiful and now wet friend,
I. Glasses

I GOT TICKETS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Warning: The post you are about to read may give you an extreme headache.

You have been warned.


*Brief happy-dancing*

Ooh! PS:

Happy yesterday was my half-birthday to...


Hello! My Name Is Depressed. (And Bored)

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.

Do Not Fear! I Am Here!

Where have I been the past two weeks? Let's see... Rome, Croatia, Athens, Olympia, Sicily, and Turkey. And Corfu. (Even though I didn't get off the boat to go.) Which brings me to WHY I was gone on the Eastern Mediterranean. I was on a cruise. There. I said it. HAPPY? Of course you aren't. Was it for a special occasion? A little. Was it so that I could experience culture? I dunno. Was it 'cause I have the greatest grandparents in the world? Well, DUH! I liked Athens best. It was AWESOME. Okay! Bye!


Hi. I'm going to tell you about books. Wanna know why? 'CAUSE I LIKE BOOKS. You got a problem with that?

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?

I Quit!

That's right, you heard me. I'm quitting Entrecard. Here's a hint: Get me off your favorites NOW. Otherwise, you can't delete me. I'm serious.


Hey-- stop laughing!


Did Great, Feel Great.

Yup, that's how I am. I did great in the 5k. My time was 42 minutes, 20 seconds. I ran with my friend, who I will call "Enchilada". (Don't ask-- it's an inside joke. You wouldn't get it.)

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.

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.


Yes, another 5k. This one is not Girls on the Run. (Such a shame.) It is called "Run for the Stars".

This will be fun. I'll keep you posted.



What? I have a reason to be excited. What is it? Well...


End Of Year Lists:

Since school is almost over, my mom said I should tell you some things I liked:

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.

Warning: This Post Is So Funny That I Can't Think Of A Good Title For It

I saw the new "Night at the Museum" movie. WOW! This was something I didn't even realize.

On Memorial Day

Remember those who died like you'll remember this image.

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.

This Is Poppy!

Ms. Witty made a post about her. You can read it here. My mom's a really funny writer. You'll appreciate it as much as I did. It warms you up and makes you smile like hot chocolate on a snowy day.

Anyway, she also made a video of Poppy. It is 26 seconds long, and called "Poppy In Motion".


Wish Me Luck!

Why? 'Cause I'm running a 5K (3.1 mile) race TODAY! I know, I know, it sounds so familiar. That's because I wrote about it. Yes, I did. Go back in my history to last week. It's there. Anyway...

Wish me luck!

Girls On The Run

I'm doing this cool program called Girls on the Run. In about 2 months, groups of girls prepare for a big 5K (3.1 miles) run. I am doing the big 5K on May 17th, and I already ran a practice 5K. My time (yes they timed us) was 41.29 (41 minutes and 29 seconds.) Not bad, eh? Today my running buddy (my aunt) is taking me to run again. I hope I don't pass out!

Voldemort's New Buddy

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!

Hi Again

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Ms. Witty's computer wasn't working.

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.

Am I Cursed Or Something?

I read the Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan. I loved it.

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?"

Friday Jokes

This one's funny.

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!"

I've Been Tagged!

Feefifoto's gone and done it. She tagged me!

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:

  1. I'm a bookaholic.
  2. I have glasses.
  3. I am going to sleepaway camp for only my second time this summer!
  4. I have been to 3 of the seven continents (one which I live in.)
  5. I have never been skiing.
  6. I am in third grade. (And it's the best third grade in the world.)
  7. 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.
  8. I like blogging, but Big Pain thinks it's stupid
Now, I'm tagging:
I think that's all I'll do.

These Are So Awesome!

Here's a video Ms. Witty sent me. If you like it, there's another one.

Did you like it?

If you liked that, this one's even cooler.

Has This Ever Happened To You?

Are you ready for some fun? Well then prepare for a bundle of laughs. These are 3 LOL stories.

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.
THE END (of the first story)
PS: We had a picture of it, but we can't find it.
And the next:

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.
THE END (of the second story)

All right. You need a break. Get up, wash your hands, go to the bathroom, eat a snack, make sure the house isn't burning down, then come back. There's still one more story.

Are you ready? OK.

Last story, coming up:

It's winter, about ten years ago. (I wasn't alive. This is Ms. Witty's story.) But anyway, it's winter, about ten years ago. Ms. Witty heard the weather people saying that it was so cold that you could walk outside with a hot cup of coffee, throw the coffee up in the air, and by the time it came down, it would be frozen. Ms. Witty tried this, and it didn't work. Maybe because she was too chicken to go all the way outside, and not just stand in the doorway.
THE END (of the last story)

Friday Jokes

Here's the weekly joke. Here it goes!

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!

Wordless Wednesday: Our New Pupsident

I saw this on TV Monday night. Isn't it hilarious?!?!

Birds and ‘Gators and Lizards, Oh My!

I asked my friend Daisy to do a guest post for me. And guess what? She did! Well, I'll stop writing and let Daisy wow you with her awesome awesomeness. So here's Daisy!

"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!
