Mini-Blog: Eep! 'Hiest Society' Cover!

Lookie! It's the cover of the new book, Heist Society, by Ally Carter, coming out in late February.

There's an excerpt posted on Ally's blog, and the comments have been turned back on for a bit so that she can get feedback. Awesome!

When I first saw this, I didn't know what it was, and I thought it was an Audrey Hepburn poster. Anyway, it looks awesome. The model looks awesome, and the reflection in the big, cool, sunglasses was a nice touch.

It doesn't draw the eye much, but the cover is still awesome.

I love it!

Student Council Elections

Hey guys! Just a little update on my life.

I'm running for Student Council Treasurer, which is great.

What's not great is that I'm running against one of my friends... I wonder how this will turn out.

Sorry to myself, but my money is on my friend. She's a bit more "popular" than I am, and as we all know, it's all one big popularity contest. I mean, do you really think that one smelly, obnoxious kid is going to win President just because he's got some good ideas? Please. It helps if you have some good ideas, but it'll only help one choose between one popular person or the other.

Well, I'll continue this rant when the results come out.

Vote For Nadia!,

Books and Music and Other Stuff

I started reading the Pecry Jackson and The Olympians Series. I love it! It's so good, and the characters are very original and real. (Yes, I did just call the children of Greek gods "real.") I just finished that last one and I very much like the ending, but I wish the series wasn't over. But thankfully, Rick Riordan is going to write a bit of a spin-off series about the second generation of 'demigods.'

Unfortunately, that series will most likely be the last one I'll be able to choose to read. The eighth grade Language Arts teachers are giving us assigned reading now. So far I've read Lord of the Flies, Diary of A Young Girl, Romeo & Juliet, and now I'm on 1984. It's pretty good so far. For my 1984 project, I'll be writing a "lost chapter"/"deleted chapter" from the book. And you know what else? I'm 201 pages in, and I've yet to use SparkNotes! Whoop!

The new Paramore album, "Brand New Eyes," came out the other day, and it's great! I like Turn It Off the best. I'm going to the very last concert of their new tour in November.

Did you know iTunes is now charging $1.30 for each song, but only $9.50 for an album. It's outrageous!

I got a new bike! Now I don't have to ride a 9-year-old bike with the seat higher than the handlebars! (It used to belong to my older sister.)

Ok, that's it.

Hamburger Helper Hand

Do you guys know that one misshapen clay talking hand that pops up in the backs of people's cars and forces them to consume his food? Yeah, well I'm a bit terrified of that hand.

I mean, who knows! It might come out of your pantry, where you store your boxes of Hamburger Helper stuff, make its way upstairs as you sleep, and kill you with kitchen knives!!! On top of that, it teleports! That thing can grab your arm and telepeort you both to Mars! While this would be great for NASA, you would die unless, of course, you like to walk around in a pressurized suit, complete with oxygen tank. And you know what else? The Hamburger Helper Hand can't even die, 'cause it's made of clay!

As if it could get any worse, the food could easily be poisoned by him. And frankly, the Hamburger Helper food isn't even that good.

Is that rational?
