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.
