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.
Hopefully, I'll get to go to the library to get Pretties soon.
