ANOTHER Future Book (Maybe)

  Sitting in the near empty room made me think of my parents' bedroom back at home.  A couple of weeks ago my parents received a mysterious phone call from somewhere in Australia.  My parents immediately started packing, and forty eight hours later, they were on a first class flight to Australia.  They couldn't take me with them, so here I am at my aunt's house.  Aunt Kaley lives alone because of the recent death of Uncle Mike.  He died from a heart attack in his late forties.  The doctors don't know how it happened so early, but it did.  Aunt Kaley still hasn't gotten over his death.  And I wouldn't expect her to either.  She loved Uncle Mike more than life itself.  Anyways, here I am in the navy blue guest room.  All that's in here is a queen size bed, a gray dresser, and a small night side table.  My small suitcase sits at the foot of the bed along with a worn stuffed frog.  Mom and Dad bought it for me when I was younger.  His yellow crown that Mom made for him is falling off, and one of his eyes is missing.  His name is Flopsy, and I can't remember a moment without him.

  I have so many introductions to books that I'm never gonna finish tucked away in a drawer.  See, I love writing the beginning, but I never know what to do with the rest.  Last night I was really bored, but it felt to early to go to bed.  So I pulled out my steno pad and a pencil and started writing.  Ta-da!

Guest Blogger

Today I'm going to be doing something a little different.  I've got a great guest blogger for you guys, so pay attention!

Hello there, humans. Apparently, in your weird culture even one-of-a-kind crochet cats like myself, in all my cuddly wonderfulness, are required to have something called a "name".  I don't know what the big deal is, really. I can see having a word that describes those weird black fluffy things that keep wandering around the house (I won't dignify them with the word "cat" no matter how much you insist) but why should I need one? "Your excellency" would do just fine.

But since you won't let me alone about it, I'll throw it back to you: I need a name befitting my station in life, packing all that is marvelous about me into a few human syllables. You may nominate your ideas in the comments area below.

Some inside information.  My mom found this cute book at some store, and couldn't resist buying it.  It's called Hello My name is Amineko.  Right away, she started making one.  I think it turned out pretty good.  Anyways.  Recently the crochet cat has been exploring the house, and watching several Christmas movies.  He has also become the center of our attention, making us all want to come up with cute poses for him.

Twas the day after Christmas

I hate the day after Christmas.  All year you've been waiting and waiting for Christmas to come, and finally for one short moment in time, it's there.  And the next... It's not.

Cool Pictionary Game Thingamajig!

This is a game that I learned to play at Youth Group, so I decided to play it with my family.  We got some really funny results.

  1. Get out a sheet of paper and a writing utensil for each player
  2. Have each player write a sentence at the top of their paper.  (Try and make it funny!)
  3. Pass papers to the next player to the right
  4. After you receive the paper with someone else's sentence on it, draw a picture according to the sentence
  5. Fold back the sentence so the next person can't see it
  6. Pass the paper to the next person, and have them write a sentence according to the picture
  7. Fold back the picture, and pass to the right
  8. Draw a picture according to the sentence
  9. Continue playing until the players get their papers back.  Try to end the game with a sentence instead of a picture
  10. When the game ends, have each player read the starting sentence and the ending sentence out loud

Confused?  Here are some examples.
