Another pair of earrings!

So I made another pair of earrings that are a little heavier than the others:

They're really pretty, though, and these are probably the easiest I have made so far because instead of using eye pins, I just used some wire I had lying around. The hardest part for me is actually not making the earrings, bu thinking about what they should look like.

Jewelry Mania

Yesterday I went to Michael's and bought this cool glass beading caddy thing. Here are some pictures of it (With captions!):

That's the top part of it which apparently contains "fashion beads" according to the tag!

Below are some detachable containers with millions of seed beads. While pretty and mind-boggling to think about what you could do wit them, it's pretty hard to close the lid since the SBs (seed beads) keep on getting stuck between the two hinge-ish things.

I used this one the most probably. The colors are really pretty, but they aren't as vibrant when you string them on something :(

Cool colors are definitely my favorite and I especially like blue.

Metallic colors are good for standing out on darker skin, but there are also not very vibrant.

Below is some jewelry that I made in one day which I will never do again 'cause now my fingers are all red and raw. The bracelet took me a while, but the earring were really fast.

These are pretty, but I prefer longer ones that are teardrop shaped.
These are the most recently made; I am wearing them right now :)

The background is made of graph paper from last year's math notebook because I didn't want to get myself in the picture and I was too lazy to get the camera, so I just sat on the couch and used Photo Booth. Which is why there is a cushion in some of the pictures.

Thanks for reading!

I just got this really awesome iTouch! And it's the newest one!! Sadly, I don't have an iTunes account, because then I would be downloading a bazillion games right now. My favorites are Oven Break, Doodle Jump, and Scoops. I also got a few iPod socks! The new iPod is so much skinnier than the iPhone. But it has Contacts, and that's really weird cause it's not like you can call anyone (actually I'm not so sure on that, but whatever).

St. Lutheran Church

Sadly, there is no wifi here, so I am typing this on Microsoft word. Actually, there is, but either I can’t connect to them, or they are locked. BTW, “here” means St. Lutheran School or something like that. It’s 7:34 pm, and I am here because my mom has a rehearsal and my dad has an AYSO thing, so I have to go with my mom. So, since I can’t connect to the Internet L, I will take notes on my mom’s fellow violinists.
Front Row:
· There is an old man with glasses. He seems to be leaning forward a lot, which means he’s either interested, or maybe he can’t hear very well. The front half of his head is bald, and in the back it is combed into sleek waves that slide down the nape of his neck. There is also a bald spot in the middle of that. His nose has a big lump in the center.
· To the right of the old man is an old lady with a really wrinkled face. There are lines going down from her mouth and it looks like it’s permanently chiseled into her face. Her lipstick is thin line of red against her white skin. Her beige pants are held up to her natural waist with a chestnut belt, instead of resting on the hips.
NOTE: Since describing everyone will take forever, I will only describe those that deserve describing.
· Second Row, behind the old lady: Has about five piercings on each ear. A pixie cut and thick glasses. She is wearing a white V-necked shirt with a blue something underneath. On her feet are unflattering black clog-like shoes.
Beside the “five piercings on each ear” woman is a large lady who has folds of her skin dangling over the next fold. Also has glasses like all the other people described

Gosby House Inn

Right now I am Gosby House Inn, Pacific Grove. It's also a B&B, but I don't think that it's as cool as Hughes Hacienda in Colorado which I'll blog about later. Because of my limited time on the computer is drawing to an end, I'll wrap up by writing, more later! (If I can get on!)

Arrogant Worms

Right now I am listening to Kill The Dog Next Door by the Arrogant Worms. I don't really like the title, but it has a catchy tune. Here is the link for it:

1. Kill The Dog Next Door

2. I Am Cow

3. The Coffee Song

4. Rocks And Trees

I think '' I Am Cow'' is the best song, but ''Rocks and Trees'' is also pretty good. Please check them out!!

How do mermaids poop?!

Last night, as I was lying in bed, trying to get to sleep, a question popped into my mind: How do mermaids poop?! Obviously, they don't do it the normal way, the way you and I do it, so how is it done? They have to poop, because they eat, and they can't store it. They would become really fat, and not have the strength in their tails to swim for food. Plus, no one has ever seen a fat mermaid. I wonder if it goes through their mouth, like how owls poop, through their beak. That would be a little gross though!

Notes on Two things

Okay, the first thing is if you've noticed, in my last to posts, I wrote stuff about Clarisse the Cow. The reason for this is because, once, when we were both hiking together at Mission Peak (which is filled with cows!), I went to close to a calf, and the cow got mad at me and chased me a bit. Ever since then I have not liked cows. And Clarisse got bitten by a Chinchilla before so she claims to not like them although she always signs her name as 'Clarisse the Chinchilla'. So that's how it started...

And, the thought train, which I said I'd describe in more detail in 'Surgery: The Final Frontier'. Basically, You connect an object, let's say a circle, and then the circle reminds you of drawing, which reminds you of homework, and so on. It's an interesting thing to do when you're bored, which I am almost all the time! I am constantly trying to invent fun games to play with yourself or others. One of my favorite 2-player game is Concentration, which I did not make up. It's a little like Lemonade with the hand clapping thing (Sorry if you can't understand this. I can't think of another way to explain this). And then you say:

Concentration (clap,clap, clap)
64 (clap,clap, clap)
No repeats (clap,clap, clap)
Or hesitation (clap,clap, clap)
You go first (clap,clap, clap)
I go second (clap,clap, clap)
The subject is (clap,clap, clap)
(insert whatever it is you have
decided the subject to be)

Note on the 'You go first, I go second' thing, it usually helps to determine who really goes first and who goes second, because you'll both be saying it at the same time. Unless your partner doesn't know the words and has to mumble along. For the rest of the thing, you just do what your subject is. For example:

The subject is (clap,clap, clap)
Names (clap,clap, clap)
Person 1: Angelina (clap,clap, clap)
Person 2: Clarisse (clap,clap, clap)
P1: Daley (clap,clap, clap)
P2: Emilia (clap,clap, clap)
P1: Mary (clap,clap, clap)

And so on until one of you misses a beat or stumbles. Like I said in the song-ish part of Concentration, no repeats or hesitation.

Hope you try it,


Where's my stuff?

I recently found a book that I think is really useful, so I've decided to share it with you.

S.O.S or School Organizing System

There are 3 ways to do this:

Option #1: The Three-Ring Binder

This system uses color-tabbed dividers to determine where everything goes. and a three-hole punch for all of your handouts. Depending on the size of your binders, you can use for each class, or put some subjects together. Most flexible because you can have as many sections as needed.

Ideal for: Classes that have tons of paper, like a current events class in which you read lots of photocopied news articles or a biology class that uses handouts in addition to a textbook. (personally, this is my favorite!)

Option #2: The Accordion File

An accordion file is a stretchable folder that's divided into sections.

Ideal for: Classes that use books as their main source of materials

Surgery: The Final Frontier

Surgery wasn't as bad as I thought!

There was a surprising amount of people up at 6 am; I even saw this guy who was decked out in a green, yellow, and black biking jersey and matching shorts!

When we arrived at the Surgecenter, I simply plopped down on one of the red couches, and started to read. Then one of the nurses called us over and gave us these wrist things with some info about me. Soon, another nurse came and took my weight and blood pressure. She then asked me to change into a gown (which was, like, a million sizes too big), put my hair up into this hat thing, and wear this slipper for my right foot. And, like most hospitals, all of this was in multiple shades of blue. I think this is because blue is supposed to be a relaxing color. I think that this is true because I have found that it is easier to fall asleep in a blue bedroom, then in a red bedroom. But then, that's just me. I could go on and on forever because certain things tend to connect with other things, and then they connect with.....Well, you get the point. I'll blog about the thought train another time. Now, back to the subject. After the anesthesiologist, Dr. Cooper came to talk to me about the kind of anesthesia I wanted to take (the choices were a shot, and breathing it in through a mask: I chose the mask because I hate shots. I'm not scared of them, I just hate them!) I was wheeled to the Operating Room, where they moved me from the bed, to the other bed with this cool fluffy and warm blanket to lie on. Then, I put on the mask and they started to pump anesthesia into my lungs. It smelled funny; like a mixture of plastic and evil that lurks behind a curtain of sickly sweetness. Yeah, I know that doesn't help but, that's how it smelled to me. The last thing I heard before I went under is: "Now we're going to put some stickers on you." DANDANDANDAAAANNNNNN!!!!!!

Later, when I woke up, I found out that the stickers were actually things that had sensors on them and were taking my heart beat! And now, there is this dressing thing on my foot that is pulled pretty tight (to stop the bleeding, I think). I wonder if blood is still getting to my foot! Must be because it's not asleep.

Thanks for reading,

The Surgery

On Thursday, because of my foot, I have to have surgery. My appointment is scheduled for 7:30 am, but I am supposed to be at the 'Surgecenter' at 6:30 am!!!! I can't eat anything after 12 am (midnight) the night before surgery, which is Wednesday. I'm not even allowed to have a sip of water! Here are my instructions:

Preoperative Instructions

1. You will get a phone call from the hospital or surgery center. If you don't hear from them by 3:00 pm the day before surgery, call them to confirm the time that you should arrive there.

2. The time of your surgery may change depending on how the day goes or other patients' medical needs. Please try to be flexible.

3. Arrange to have someone accompany you home after surgery and stay with you overnight after surgery. You may not leave the hospital or surgery center alone.

4. DON'T EAT OR DRINK ANYTHING AFTER MIDNIGHT THE NIGHT BEFORE SURGERY, including water, coffee, gum, mints, etc. You may brush your teeth and spit it out. Some medication is taken in the AM with a sip of water.

But, maybe it'll just slip out, and we can forget about this. Sadly, it shows no signs of coming out. I guess this is the better option to just leaving it in, and having to limp for a year. Also, I'm going to Colorado, and we'll be hiking and horse-back riding, and there is no way I'll be able to do any of that! Still, I would rather that I don't have to fast,get up at 5:30, and have surgery!! The doctor said that at Urgent Care (where I was when we first went to the hospital) they were to chicken to make a cut! That was not very reassuring; I keep on having images of them cutting apart my foot (Thanks a lot, Clarisse the COW!) Oh well, it'll make a subject for my 5th grade speech!

Sunday, June 13, 2010


For me, the last day of school (which was a nice and sunny day in CA) was spent in the hospital!! I stepped on a pencil, the graphite got stuck in my foot, and *poof* a great sunny day was spent in the hospital! we spent the whole day in the hospital because there was only one doctor on duty, and she still had patients from that morning waiting to be seen, so we had to wait until 3:15! Then, doctor #2 numbed my foot with a pad of some sort, then numbed it again with a needle, poked around in the hole caused by the pencil, and announced that a bigger cut need to be made. Turns out, she called Doctor #1 who said that it will probably come out by itself by Monday, and that I should soak it in hot water with salt in it three times a day.

But........ that still didn't stop me from going to my friend Clarisse the COW's birthday party at Great America. I sat in a wheelchair all day and was wheeled to a bunch of rides. Some people went on roller coasters like Vortex and Flight Deck (which I did not go on), and We went on Celebration Swings, and Rip Roaring Rapids.

So many!!!

I am dying of itchiness!!! There are 4 mosquito bites on my right arm alone, 3 on my face, 2 on my left arm, and 1 on my shoulder blade!!

There are also so many things I need to finish before Monday. I need to finish my travel brochure for Venus, my alien adaption( apperance on the alien that might live there, and picture of it) also for Venus, and my 3D model!!! I will be very busy over the weekend!

Just some random things

Ok, first of all, for you people who subscribed to my newsletter, I appreciate the fact that you're actually reading it, but please, instead of replying in email, could you comment?! Thanks.

Yesterday was my horse-back riding lesson, and I finally cantered!!! I was riding Cleo, a pony, and my instructor, Robin, asked me if I wanted to canter on the rail, and of course I said yes! I was a little nervous at first, but then I got used to it. For some reason, Cleo kept on going really close to the rail, so i almost scraped my leg! Thankfully, I didn't.

Book Review! (kinda)

Ok, here's my first book review.....

The Lightning Thief

This book is really good and action packed. It's about a boy named Percy Jackson who finds out that he is a demigod ( half-human, half-god ). His father is Poseidon, god of the seas. Because of the fact the monsters are chasing him ( monsters like the Minotaur, etc. ), he goes to Camp Half-Blood. He finds out that his best friend, Grover, is a satyr. Big surprise. Then, when Percy and his mother, Sally Jackson, go on vacation, the Minotaur chases them, and Percy is forced to go to Camp Half-Blood. One thing though, his mom is a mortal, and can't go through the gate to the camp. Find out what happens to Percy and his friends.

Dreamdark: Blackbringer

This book is about a faerie named Magpie Windwitch who travels with crows: Bertram, Swig, Maniac, Pigeon, Pup, and Calypso. When a mysterious devil escapes its bottle, leaving the Djinn King's seal, and some human slippers behind, Magpie quickly tracks the devil across the world.
One thing though, the book is set in the old times, so they say things like: Lasses and lads, Skive,
irkmeat skiving murks, etc.

Thanks for reading!

Trip to Vancouver Part 1

I have just gotten back from a trip to Vancouver, BC. We stayed for 5 days; almost a week. We would have stayed for a week except I still had school; Spring break is sill a while off. And now the story of what happened in Vancouver.......

On Sunday, my family and I lugged our luggage ( one huge suitcase, one ski bag, and two boxes with presents for our friends ) to the cab. I was surprised to find that the trunks are actually really deep, much deeper than a normal cars' trunk is. The driver was from Punjab, I'm not sure if he was talking about the state in India or Pakistan. My dad started grilling him about how to say things like thank you in Punjabi ( he claims to be able to speak Japanese, Deutsch, Hebrew, Chinese, English of course, and a bunch of other languages ). The driver ( I would call him by his name, but I don't know it ) replied that thank you in Punjabi was a mixture of English and Punjabi, so it would be hard to translate. My dad told him that bye bye was practically Chinese now; almost everyone in China says it now. Later, as we walked into the San Jose Airport, my dad told me that he knew the driver was Punjabi because his last name was a very popular one in Punjab: Singh.

When we finally found the Alaska Horizon Airline place to check in our bags, my hands had calluses on them from dragging the heavy gift boxes along. As my parent lifted our bags on o the scale, I glanced around. I looked a few people in the eyes, and all of them smiled at me. For some reason every adult I look at smiles at me!! So creepy! When we got to the gate, I noticed the
' Free Wi-Fi ' sign, so I told my dad and he got out his laptop and let me play on it! It helped reduce the boredom level. As soon as it was time to board, I stood up and started to head to the door. My mom and my dad didn't even look up from their newspapers! So then I sat down again. In a few minutes, most of the people were already on the airplane ( I think it was a Boeing 747, but I'm not an expert on planes ) . Since we went from the San Jose Airport ( Which is really small compared to other ones ) there was a mini ramp-like thing; the kind that you always see the President on when he's getting off of his private jet. When I got on to the plane, I immediately reached for the seat pocket thing. Sadly, since we were going with Alaska, not United, there wasn't one of those Sky Mall magazines to keep me busy. so, instead I pulled out my math book and started working on it on the plane. In what seemed like a few minutes, but was actually a few hours, we headed down to Seattle in a surprisingly smooth landing.

Since I've kinda run out of time, I'll just end it here.

Oh, Vancouver

You're probably wondering why I chose this title. It probably sounds weird, but it's because this post is about the Olympics Closing Ceremony, and that is on of the things that the people were singing.

It wasn't as fancy as the one in China, but it was okay I guess. The snowboarders ( or college students, I suspect ) were waving their boards in some sort of pattern so that it made the maple flag and things like that. They were wearing white; dresses for the girls, jumpsuit-ish things for the boys.

They also had some people sing the athletes tribute song that was named " Let's get this party started " or something like that. Anyway, there was two girls; one that was singing it in English, and the other in French. Since the camera kept on going back and forth really quickly, it was hard to tell that it was two people not one.

Thanks for reading! If you have any suggestions please comment!

Olympics in Vancouver

Today is the Closing Ceremony Day. I am typing in front of the T.V., waiting for the Ceremony to start. I missed the Opening Ceremony because the thing where the nations come out and march around was the place where I died of boredom. I only watched for until it got to England ( I never knew there were that many nations that participated! )

They keep on replayed the scene where Lindsey Vonn finished the Super G, and as she comes down the slope and sees her time, she screams,and collapses on the snow. Maybe that's their favorite scenes or something :)

Many people think it isn't fair that the judges disqualified Apollo Ohno in Short Track after he had his hand on the South Korean in front of him. I take no sides. He has his eighth medal;everyone thinks that this is his last Olympics. It might be, but it also might not be. The chances are pretty even.

I really enjoy watching the Olympics, but the commentators should really try not to talk so much. Or, they could hire commentators who didn't repeat everything three times.
" Oh now he's getting closer, oh no look at the tip of her ski; it's one inch off! Oh no, her ski is off! She's going crash into the gate because of her crooked ski!! Oh no!!!"
Notice how much the words 'Oh no' and 'crooked ski' are repeated. So annoying, those commentators.

My favorite event is Figure Skating. They sometimes call it Ice Dancing, which makes me confused. I feel sorry for that woman whose mother died on February 21;she must be really sad, although she still performed pretty good. I'm no critic, but I can still tell which skaters are good and which aren't that good.

During the Olympics, there's a bunch of Visa commercials. Things about how none of the other cards are accepted at the Olympics. One of my favorites is the one about the girl named Jane who died, and then Her brother, I think, promised her that he would win a Gold medal. "He didn't ....... Not until six years later. As he skated a victory lap with his daughter, Jane, yada yada yada ( something I can't remember ) ".

Fractions and Decimals

I hesitated in posting this because I'm not sure that you won't take advantage of this. So please don't.
I am on the fractions and decimals book now. Actually, I was on it a while ago, but today the idea came into my head. Here is the knowledge I have gained by doing that book. If you are in my class, please don't try to take advantage of it and try to remember the names! Copyright Whitegummy.

The longest canal in the world is in the Western Hemisphere. It is 2,4000 feet long. The name of this canal is St. Lawrence Seaway.

Paleontologists believe that the biggest dinosaur that ever lived measured about 120 feet from head to tail and was about 18 feet high. The name of this dinosaur is the Seismosaurus.

That's all I'm going to do today.

As always, we rehearsed "Who Really Discovered America", but most of the characters were at the the school play, Revolution, so we didn't really rehearse that much.

Since there isn't that much to write about, this is the end of the post.

Just Noticed This

I have just noticed that Blue, Green, Orange is the name of an album made by a Canadian Rock star or something. Sorry if you guys thought this was his/her blog!!!!!

If you were wanting to see what the Mountain Math Problems were, sorry I forgot to bring them home with me!!! I promise I'll bring them tomorrow!

After school, I went to the library to get Pretties, Specials, and Extras. Here are the pictures of the covers:

Pretties (Uglies Trilogy, Book 2)Pretties

Specials (The Uglies)Specials

Extras (Uglies)Extras

My favorite cover is Specials because the line-ish things on her face are cool. Extras isn't part of the Uglies Trilogy, but I heard it sounds pretty good, so I got it.

One of my friends started a blog, but they haven't really been posting any thing on it, so I won't post the http on here.

Sometimes when I get bored, or when I'm laying in my bed, I start this thing that I call a thought chain. What you do is you start with something, like for instance a dog, then thinking of a dog connects with something else, like for me a dog reminds me of swimming because on the last day of the swimming pool that I go to, they let the dogs swim on the day they clean the pool. Then, swimming reminds me of posting because I just posted something about swimming. Posting would remind me of something else, and so on.

For some reason, every single project I've started I never end. For instance, me and one of my friends started this mini golf course thing in my backyard. It ended the same day when the lawn mower filled our holes with some soil. Then, every time I get inspiration to write a book, it ends when I run out of things to write about. Now, as a habit I am once again trying to write a book that I will hopefully finish. But then, if the publisher ( If I even get that far ) might not except my to-be-written book, I would probably be discouraged. So, as you can obviously see, I am not one to stick to things.

Anyway, on with what I did today. Today was really like all of the other weekdays. Weeeeellllllllllll....... I finished my Mountain Math ( For those of you that don't know, it's this thing that we have to finish in a week. I'll post the questions tomorrow or the day after so you know what's it like.), almost memorized my lines for " Who Really Discovered America ".

For swimming, we had to swim one hundred Freestyle ( Which is basically four times the length of the pool without stopping ) , which is the exact thing I'm the worst at. One of my friends thinks Freestyle is the best ( Probably because she's good at it ), and Backstroke is the worst ( Which I think is the best ).

If I counted right, we swam eight laps!!! Ok, so you Olympic Swimmers probably think that's no big deal, but you're OLYMPIC SWIMMERS and you're most likely older than me!!!!

Ah well, maybe I wasn't cut out to be a swimmer....

Blue, Green, Orange

Some of you may have noticed that I changed my blog name. I changed it because a friend thought that Topic of the Week was too serious, and sounded like a business-ish blog. So, that friend helped me come up with Blue, Green, Orange.

I always thought that Sundays were the boringest day of the week. Then I thought that they were the funnest. Now, back to boring. Everything moves so slowly here on Sundays. It's like the world stops, and rotates really slow on Sundays.

Since I don't have any thing to write about today, I'll write about yesterday. First, we went to Foothills Park, and walked around to see what facilities they have because we're hosting a party next Sunday. Thay had a lot of cool stuff like a huge pine cone, a Great Gray Owl, and a Horned Owl. It had a weird smell in there. Probably because they always close the doors. Or maybe it just smells like that.

Lake Boronda

After that we went to Robert's Market in Portola Valley. I got some Lays Limon Chips for 99 cents, two pieces of baked Garlic Bread, and another piece not cooked. They don't have tax up there!!!! I wonder why.............

For horse-back riding lessons, I was riding Ty. Her trot was really bouncy; I could hardly sit during the sitting trot! Cantering didn't go so well either. I was too tired to really concentrate, so I nearly fell off. Hopefully one day I'll be able to canter on the rail. From what I heard, Cantering isn't that hard once you can sit in the saddle.

I saw a little girl trotting, and I thought, that was once me, I used to think trotting was so hard, and now trotting is probably the easiest thing I know. But that doesn't mean I'm experienced, Just that I think trotting is easy.

Soon that will be me.........

A Funny Story ( In my opinion )

Today while I was at a stationary store, I heard this girl ask the person at the counter if they had any sorry cards because she forgot her piano book, and she was afraid her teacher was going to get mad at her.

And of course, we once again practiced the " Who Really Discovered America " game show. The seven candidates are Hoei Shin, Brendan the Bold, Bjarni Herjolfsson, Leif Ericsson, Prince Madoc of Wales, Christopher Columbus, and Chief Howling Wind. It is quite a long game show.

I felt kind of bored so I wrote a setting:

A babbling stream winds through a maze of emerald trees. Lavender and sapphire wildflowers dapple the clearing where the brook trickles to an end between two ash-colored boulders. A single blue jay darts out from under the cover of the saplings, and utters a solitary cry before returning to her hidden nest. A ferret peeks out of her secret burrow, scanning her surroundings. The wind sweeps through the peaceful glade, while a squirrel leaps on to a branch, collecting nuts for Winter. Mother Nature is preparing herself for the coldest season of all.

So the picture doesn't really match, but I like it.

I am currently reading Uglies By Scott Westerfeld. The main character is a girl called Tally. It's set in the future. When people turn sixteen, the get a operation to turn them pretty. Tally has a friend named Peris that's three months older than her, and she really wants to join him in New Pretty Town ( That's where they live when they turn pretty; the uglies live in Uglyville. ) On the way back from New Pretty Town, she meets a girl called Shay. Then they become best friends and I can't remember the rest.

Uglies (Uglies Trilogy, Book 1)
Hopefully, I'll get to go to the library to get Pretties soon.

School ( and other various topics )

After dragging myself up at 7:00 in the morning to get to school, i think i might be able to actually get used to it even though I swore I never would. But then, I 'm not known for remembering oaths.

Today is, unfortunately, Wednesday, which means that unfortunately, I have to go to YMCA for swimming.

At school we rehearsed " Who Really Discovered America" . I am trying to memorize my lines as an interviewer, for no apparent reason. Maybe I just like memorizing things.

For Music, me and some other people that made the audition went around to two different general music classes to play Brahms Finale from the First Symphony (4 violins, 1 viola, and 1 cello). We also got or progress reports today. I got excellent for most things.

Lunch was Beef Enchiladas - so good!!!!! Had to eat really fast because Toy Story 2 was starting ( on rainy days we get to watch a movie. Today wasn't raining, but we got to finish it.) Even though I have already watched it , I still felt a kind of a lure to watch it again.

Although my horse-back riding lesson is on Saturday, everyday when I wake up my mind thinks that today is the day for a one hour horse-back riding session. I'm not very experienced; the only tome I've cantered is on a lunge-line, but I really enjoy it.

And now here I am, writing a post.

Excerpts from a cats' diary

Day 983 of my captivity.

My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects.

They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength.

The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet.

Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates what I am capable of. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a 'good little hunter' I am. Bastards.

There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of 'allergies.' I must learn what this means and how to use it to my advantage..

Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow -- but at the top of the stairs.

I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released - and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded.

The bird has got to be an informant. I observe him communicating with the guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move. My captors have arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cell, so he is safe. For now.........
