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 ) ".

Thanks for reading!

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.

I know the quiz is a bit weird, but it tells you what your personalty is.

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....
