In Case You Didn't Get It By Now, I Am A Megageek.

So recently, my bestest friend in the whole entire universe-RatFriend-has been going through a hard time. As her nickname suggests, she loves her pet rats with all her heart. Last night, though, rats was shortened to rat. This Friday, we're going out for dinner with their family-Her little brother Red is conveniently a carbon copy of my brother-and I decided to make something to cheer her up.
One of the countless things we have in common is a love of Star Wars. Now, recently, I have been on a Rainbow Loom kick. I dream of new patterns at night, and it's pretty much all I breathe. Every waking moment-RAINBOW LOOM, RAINBOW LOOM, RAINBOW LOOM. Sooo.......I made friendship bracelets.
I just wanted to share this. Have a wonderfully geeky day :)

Here's A Thought Snack

Hey! Recently, I have been on a "random fact" kick. I look at random fact pictures on the internet.......annoy my family and friends with random tidbits of knowledge.......and, recently, read random fact books. Here's the book I am currently in the middle of:
It's technically my brother's, but he's usually watching pointless YouTube videos. So he doesn't mind me reading it.
Anyways, what I wanted to do here was give you some RAAAAAAAAAAANDOM KNOWLEDGE! How I selected these facts was simple-I flipped to a random page, and swirled my finger in circles. Then, with my eyes closed, I put my finger down on the page-and the fact I landed on got put here.
Here we go!
*Humans have only explored 5 percent of the ocean.
*Cockroaches can live for a few weeks without their heads.
*The longest pizza ever made stretched 3,745 feet and 0.85 inches and was created in Spain on May 31st, 2011.
*Papero the childcare robot is a mechanical babysitter that uses a 3,000-word vocabulary, 2 "eyes", and 8 "ears" to interact with kids.
*A giraffe's heart is 2 feet long!
*When the ancient Greeks were at war with each other, they called a truce just to hold the Olympics.
*The horse's brain is about the size of a baked potato.
*The word "snickersnee" means large knife.
*Scrooge McDuck was named the richest fictional character in the world by Forbes magazine in 2011. He is worth (a fictional) 44.1 billion dollars.
*The chupacabra has been described as kangaroo-like, but also part gargoyle, with sharp claws and red eyes. In the 1990s in Puerto Rico, some believed that it sucked out farm animal's blood.
*The Rongorongo Hieroglyphs were found on pieces of wood on Easter Island, but no one has been able to read them. Every other line is inscribed upside down.
*The snout of a star-nosed mole is six times more sensitive then the human hand.
If your thoughts are still hungry, I can do another post like this!

A Fresh Batch Of Awesome Things

So yesterday I got a book from the library called The Book Of Awesome. It is a compilation of things the author thinks are, well, awesome. I figured I'll make my own compilation here. So here's a fresh batch of Awesome!
*The gum from a Dubble Bubble Pop. When the last of the candy melts away.........there be awesomeness.
*When you're sick and a pet notices. When I had the flu, Mystique would NOT get off of me. I would picture her saying "NO. YOU ARE SICK AND YOU NEED CUDDLES!" Every time I tried to get up. Pets are awesome.
*Peeling the protective shield-thingy off of your insulin pumps screen. Actually, peeling anything off of anything. So satisfyingly awesome.
*When your sibling leaves you alone. 'Nuff said. Awesome.
*The smell of cookies in the oven. Even better, the TASTE of cookies fresh out of the oven. Deliciously awesome.
*The smell of pizza in the car on the way home from picking it up. Alternatively, when the pizza delivery guy FINALLY arrives. Pizza is awesome.
*Being exited because the books you got from the library are REALLY COOL. We went to the library yesterday, and I got some cool fantasy books, and a book full of scary stories. I was so exited to read them I almost screamed in the car. Awesome. (Okay, maybe this one is just me.)
*The smooth feeling of a softcover library book. So awesomely smooth.
And that, was Gwen's point of view!
