Shhh...I'm hiding from my closet

Why am I hiding from my closet, you ask? (or maybe you don't ask) Because it's a huge mess! I rearranged all the furniture in my room the other day, and so (to make floorspace for all the bookcases and stuff ) I shoved everything I could fit in my closet. I'm afraid to open the door now. Ok, I'm not afraid to open the door because I think stuff will fall out, but I'm afraid if I open the door I'll have to clean my closet. I DON'T WANT TO CLEAN MY CLOSET! So I'm stalling. And stalling. It's not gonna do any good, because as soon as my mom reads this post she's gonna go make me clean it, but I'm stalling anyway. So I'm just gonna write random things going on lately.


KNOCK KNOCK
who's there?
POTATO HEAD
potato head who?
POTATO HEAD
potato head who?
MR. POTATO HEAD!
hahahahaha!
My brother made that 'joke' up. He's 4. It's actually better than most of his jokes, most of them go like this:

KNOCK KNOCK
who's there?
WHY DID THE SNAIL CROSS THE ROAD?
I don't know, why?
HE WANTED TO GET SQUISHED!
hahahaha!


What else can I write about? I guess I could do another book review ::sigh::



Eragon
This is the first novel written by Christopher Paolini, when he wrote this he was about 16, I think. It's pretty much just Star Wars chopped up and moved around, but with dragons and elves and dwarfs instead of aliens and magic instead of the Force. But it's actually pretty good. (maybe I'm just think that b/c I like Star Wars though) It's about a farm boy called Eragon (shocker!) who finds a dragon egg in the forest and it hatches and he has to raise the dragon and protect it from the Empire and the evil King Galbatorix. (dunh, dunh, DUNH!) And so of course he has to fight the Empire and help the Rebels and all that. (But they don't blow up the Death Star) I like it, but I think I liked it more before I saw Star Wars. I would recommend it to middle schoolers. Maybe older elementary school kids, but it's kinda to violent for younger kids.

I should probably have made this into 2 posts but whatever, I guess I'll go clean my closet now ::snif::

  1. I've been hiding from my closet for years. I think I will keep hiding for a while longer.

    I'd heard of Eragon but didn't know much about it (except I assumed it involved a dragon, just looking at the cover) until now. I think my son might like it. He likes Star Wars, and he likes violence.

    I think I mostly didn't want to read it because I was jealous that a 16-year-old had written a novel and I at 38 have still not finished one.

  2. Also, your brother's knock-knock jokes reminded me of the jokes my older kids used to tell each other when they were little(r):

    Knock knock!
    Who's there?
    Sock.
    Sock who?
    Sock pizza!
    Hahahahaha!

    The sad thing is, I think they still find that joke funny. Which is what *I* find funny.

  3. Eragon and Star Wars huh? I have to admit I hadn't gone there. I was all over Eragon and the Lord of the Rings stuff but Star wars may actually be closer. But then again all fantasy is basically the same. I don't mean that derisively it's just an observation, I love fantasy.

    I didn't think the first one was all that great but by the third one I think Christoopher had really hit his groove and I'm even more impatient for the next one than I am for the next Fablehaven.

    Good luck with the closet. I feel your pain. We all feel your pain. (Except your mother who doesn't hide from anything.)

SERIOUSLY, people? What is the point of blogging if nobody comments? If you can't think of anything to say about the post, THEN JUST SAY "HI"!

Have a nice day.
