Here’s all of the pretty good things that have happened this past week!
Monday: I got to go to the library! I had some really overdue books I finally returned, paid my $3.60 in dues (That’s a ton!), and checked out two new books: Zombies vs. Unicorns & Tyrell. I also got a Norah Jones cd, Come Away With Me.
Tuesday: I got a 102 on my Algebra test!
Wednesday: Hallow’s Eve! I got a bucketfull of candy! I think I got more Butterfingers than anything if you don’t count lollipops.
Thursday: This day pretty much sucked.
Friday: I had to stay after school again for band practice, but-I passed my scales!!! Barely! I did all 6 of the scales in 1:37 out of the two minutes you get to do them. This is what the Band director said to me,
Band Director: Well, congradulations you passed your scales and your chromatic scale. Your tongueing is very sharp. I read that this can be caused by not having a strong enough reed. I think that we might need to move you up to a Level 4 reed from the Level 3’s.
Me: I’m already using the 4’s.
Band Director: *stunned* Wow. Maybe you should try a 4 1/2, then.
Me: *also now stunned* Ok, Thank you.
Band Director: Thank You!
Four-and-a-half! Oh My Goodness!!!! Level 3 1/2 is what most people in my level use. I just went for the fours last Christmas to see how they worked. By now I’ve gotten use to using them, but WOW! I only know 2 other people that use fours in my level and they’re really, really good. But, 4 1/2 !?! I don’t know anyone who’s ever even tried those before! I’m really, really, super-duper excited!!!
If you’re interested in all the things that went wrong this week, you can look here at The Bad Side.
Aaaaaaah! Last night I went to the Rave Movie Theatre with my mummy (Halloween Pun!) and we saw the scariest movie ever together. It was The Exorcist-BUM BUM BUM!!! Wow, when you’re in a near-empty theatre, dark as a closed closet, having the scariest film ever produced flash before your eyes, you’re bound to pee your pants. I bet if I hadn’t seen that movie 5 times before, I definitely would’ve because-whew-that was something! My mother and I both agreed that the scariest part of the whole movie was right after they learned the mom’s boyfriend died, the girl came down the stairs like a crab and, like, if your queasy don’t read this next part, but, like, blood started gushing out of her mouth. That was when I screamed so loud in the middle of the movie. It’s scary just to think of it!
This marks the beginning of the Holiday Season! First Halloween, then Thanksgiving and before you know it, people’ll be smooching under the Mistletoe! But, let’s keep it to Halloween for now. I’m going to be watching scary movies like crazy this month! I wanted to give you guys some reccomendations, or, otherwise, my personal favorites. They’re not in any order either, but I will admit, The Exorcist is my all-time favorite right next to The Omen (Either version is good).
1. The Good Son
2. Child’s Play
3. The Possession-I saw this in the theatre a few weeks ago, it was pretty good if you haven’t seen it.
5. Pet Semetary-Spine-Chilling Fun!
6. The Ring
7. Freddy Kruger/Nightmare On Elm Street
8. Silence of the Lambs
9. Evil Dead
10. The Shining
11. 28 Days Later
12. The Sixth Sense-I see dead people!
14. Texas Chainsaw Massacre
16. Ju-on (It’s in Japanese so it has subtitles)
19. Children of the Corn
20. The Birds
21. Rosemary’s Baby
The one movie that I really want to see that I haven’t this season is Paranormal Activity. My parents think it sounds stupid but I’m going to force them to rent it for me from Blockbuster or something!
What are your favorite scary movies of all-time? Are there any I forgot?
I was looking around in the library the other day in the little kids section. Don’t judge! Sometimes I like an easy book to read! I came across the “Scary” section and I thought it would be things like Goosebumps or something. I started looking and I found a very-and I mean VERY- scary book about the Salem Witch Trials. Are kids, like 1st graders allowed to even read this stuff? I know if I had a child, I’d let them read it. maybe. But, aren’t some people like really against this kind of stuff? Especially for kids?
Anyway, I got the book and I plan on reading it sometime this week. Maybe I’ll put a review on my blog. The book is called Witch-Hunt by Marc Aronson if you’ve heard of it or think you might want to read it.
