9 crazy max facts

i was tagged by mindi a while ago. so i'm going to blog about nine crazy max facts:

fact #1: my favorite animal is the kiwi. and i know what you're thinking. but my favorite animal isn't a fruit, but a wingless, flightless bird from new zealand that is also called a kiwi.

fact #2: i have a collection of percussion instruments from all around the world. (my dad got them -- go, dad!)

fact #3: my nickname, that i made up on an RV trip, is "stinko the clown". for instance, my dad's (which i also made up on the RV trip) is flabbio.

fact #4: i've eaten a termite body. not the head, just the body. don't question it.

fact #5: i've also tasted guinnea pig and rattle snake (but not in the same meal).

fact #6: in addition to lots of states, i've been to mexico, guatemala, peru, and new zealand.

fact #7: i've just gotten into "Calvin and Hobbes" comic books. and, as you know, if you've ever read one comic, you can't stop.

fact #8: i'm learning to ride a unicycle for school. and, yes, it's a private school.

fact #9: i play drums, cello, recorder, and the nosenfluggle (one of those isn't true).

tongue-twisters for the letter b

like i said earlier, i like to make up tongue-twisters. earlier, i posted some for the letter a (and some of you added some fun ones too). jacob added two of my favorite ones (peggy bupkiss, and notebook), but he didn't really follow the rules. jacob, that was supposed to be tongue-twisters for a. as in, words starting with a. but anyways, those were really good.

here are some tongue-twisters for b. i'm making them up right now:

boney bonnie boxed her brother's bear

bob and beverly brought beatrice a beautiful bouquet of begonias (say THAT 10 times fast!)

now, as you know, you are invited to add your own tongue-twisters. but not for "a" -- for "b". as in, words that start will the letter b, jacob!


hey, we were just cleaning up the dishes from eating dinner, when my dad put the leftover bread in the bread bag (it's a bag we have for keeping bread). we might it might be a hard "b" tongue twister, so we tried it. and, "bread bag" is REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY (etc) hard to say a bunch of times fast. try it!


i just realized i never talked about my family. i DO have one -- i'm not an orphan (i've got orphans on my mind, though, because i'm reading all the lemony snicket book -- that you may not have heard of, but you've probably heard of the movie).

i have three family members. my dad, marko (and you probably know him), my mom, jeannie, and my annoying sister, liesl.

my dad is probably the coolest dad in the whole entire world. and he didn't make me write that. i'm going to go to st. louis with my dad in a few days. my dad will be speaking to a couple thousands junior high kids, while i am backstage fooling around with all the candy that they put out there for the crew.

my mom, on the other hand, is the one who reads me the lemony snicket books. we're on book #6, the ersatz elevator. a couple days ago, my sister and dad were gone, and i camped out on the couch -- overnight -- with my mom. it was fun. it's a big couch, a sectional one.

my sister, liesl, is 13. and if you have an older sister, than you probably realize how frustrating it is to have a 13 year old sister. we used to get along really well. but now, since she's a teenager, we still get along, but we get mad at each other easily, and don't hang out as much.

that's my family. i love them. we're going to new zealand in a few weeks, and i'm sure it's gonna be really fun - if my sister's not too snotty!

angel helping grandmother

this last halloween, guess what i was? i bet you know. because there's a picture on this post! and i was a... wait:


a. a monster truck

b. an angel, or

c. a grandma

now, if you think b, raise your hand (huh, huh, huh). sorry, just couldn't help myself.

anyways, if you think it's b, that's weird. if you think it's c, that's ok. and if you think it's a, you've got problems. yes, it's c.

this picture does not really show it, but (heh-heh-heh, i'm about to talk about a butt, and i said but, and i didn't mean that kind of butt) -- anyways -- my butt was a humunguation (big) butt. we stuffed it with stuffing. and i mean, seriously, dude (or, dudette), it was like sticking out a foot farther than my real butt.

so here's the picture of me and my sister. she's the angel.

Da Book

I am going to make up these little tongue twisters and put them in a book. They're probably really easy to do but some of them might not be. And I'm going to post them occasionally. Guess what? I'm going to write them A - Z and I'm also going to write the little and in between Y and Z like the song!

Guess what? Chicken butt! Sorry about that. Couldn't help myself :o)

Guess what? You are invited to make up your own tongue twisters and put them on my blog for the world to see! Cool huh? Please only send in tongue twisters you've made up yourself!!!

Here's my tongue twister for A:

Annie accidentally ate another of Alex's absolutely amazing apples.

Say that 10 times fast!
I'll bet you can't do it. I really bet you can't do it. Ah, what am I saying? That's super easy. But that's ok cause that's just the beginning!

Now you can send in any A tongue twister that you make up! Get to work! Guess who? Chicken poo! ha ha ha :o)

I have 3 really AWESOME friends, Miles, Nick, and Quinn. We like making up silly songs and annoying the girls. Here is one of my songs.

It's called "WORMS" and should be sung with a slow, sad, southern, slurry accent.

Nobody likes me
everybody hates me
I think I'll go eat worms.

Nobody likes me
everybody hates me
I think I'll play with worms.

When I open my lunch box
and look in a thermos
I see a pile of worms.

Everybody laughses
everybody teases
I think I'll go eat worms.

Oooooohhhhh, nobody likes me
everybody hates me
I think I'll go eat slugs.

Nobody likes me
everybody hates me
I think I'll play with slugs.

When I open my lunch box
and look in a bag
I see a pile of slugs.

When I look at the bag
and read what it says
it's says, "desserts desserts".

Ooooohhhhh, nobody likes me
everybody hates me
I think I'll go eat beetles.

Nobody likes me
everybody hates me
I think I'll play with beetles.

When I go to IHOP
and order Beetle Pancakes
the waiter screams and runs.

Screams and runs
like a little baby girl
in the nighttime with her closet open.

Nobody likes me
everybody hates me
I think I'll go eat worms.

Nobody likes me
everybody hates me
I think I'll play with worms!

It's beautiful, isn't it? Am I right? Am I right? I'm right, aren't I?

Hello my name is -- wait, just saying this guy is looooopy. so if you're weird or odd or both, this is the right place for you. Anyways... my name is Max, I'm 9 years old, and my last name is Oestreicher (Ostriker). I got a blog because I was bored and there was nothing on TV.
