I am back

and don't you forget about it.

Well, that was a nice break.
My fingers started to get twitchy from typing-withdrawal by the second day though.

What? Whatareya'll looking at me like that?
Fine, I haven't posted in two weeks. But what's two weeks between friends, eh? Besides, I needed a break. Due to that February challenge, I posted more last month then I have ever posted in a month before.(<--would ya look at that awkward sentence. Yes, I am out of practice.) But don't worry. Are you in for extra posts today!

So in the days past, I have:
~read six and a half books(The Mysterious Benedict Society, The Perilous Journey, Frankenstein, Magyk, Flyte, Physik, and Queste. And The Swarm war.
~Fangirled about Percy Jackson and the Olympians(finished listening to THe Demigod Files)

Like I said, you were all up for a scathing review of Percy Jackson and the Olympians The Lightning Thief  The Movie. But this video pretty much covers it. Watch the whole thing. It's hilarious.
"Instead, just make Percy say 'Woah, woah, woah" 143 times." XD


They will make more though. The Lightning Thief did more than "okay" at the box office. And they said they "chose the cast specifically with sequels in mind." Huh. How that works out, I don't know. I must write reviews for Septimus Heap though. Someday, someday.

Let's see. I had lots of post ideas for you. They seem to have escaped me forever.


Did you know I haven't posted anything about Star Wars in a long time? 


I just finished the Swarm War by Troy Denning. Which effectively means that I have read every single Star Wars book with Jaina Solo in it. Scary. 
(drums fingers on table and waits for Ascension to come out. August if I remember correctly)

While we're waiting, did you know that they're going to be making a Septimus Heap movie? And Angie Sage is directing it! I'm excited :) 

People are speculating who should play who. As for Marcia, I think Rachel Weiz would make a great fit.

Doesn't she just look the part?
I need to go work on The Lakehouse Newsletter. We're doing this awesome thing with costumes! People are submitting pictures of their costumes. 


Oh, and hear this new song I like:

 It's good to be back.

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

eeeeeeeeeeeeee
I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO



































love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Similarities:
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

updates on life(aka excuses to post tumblr gifs)

If I had to describe my life in one word right now, it'd be cold. Brr.


Let's see..what's happening?

I got my back bend kickover from le ground in acro. It's awesome. :) I never thought I'd be able to do it XD

Of course, it's not with straight legs(yet). And I don't hit my splits in the middle. Come to think of it, it's actually sort of a back flop-over.



I read Skeleton Key and Eagle Strike(next two Alex Rider books) last night. The series has gotten better, but it still has the same problems. Just like Suzanne Collins makes the simplest events seem chilling and scary, the numerous random deaths in Alex Rider are just like "meh...whatever."

They all still have similar plots. Such as:

1. The book opens with some sort of mysterious circumstance. Usually an assasination or an exchange where one of the members gets stabbed in the back(sometimes literal, sometimes not) and killed. Either way, someone usually dies.
2. Alex Rider is hanging out drinkin…
