WALL-E is a very good movie. it's about the future, when the earth gets filled with too much trash. and, then, humans take a space ship out to space for 5 years while little robots all named WALL-E clean up the trash while they're gone. this particular robot is the only one left; and the humans ended up staying in that spaceship for 700 years. this is a problem, because they end up spending their lives in hover-chairs, with robots doing all the work for them, and all the entertainment they need. so they're all super-fat, haven't touched a foot to the ground in years, and do nothing but stare at screens of entertainment in front of their faces.
WALL-E is very lonely, and a spaceship comes down, with a beautiful robot named eve. i'm not going to tell you why she's there, because that might ruin the story. WALL-E falls in love with her, but she's unsure about him. later in the movie, he proves he is very heroic, and eve can't resist his rusty metal charm.
there are a couple other fun little characters in the movie. there's a cockroach, who's WALL-E's only friend on earth. he's like WALL-E's pet, and always follows him around. then, on the spaceship, there's this funny little robot named mo. he's very small, and his job is to clean things. he has a little roller attached to both of his hands, and uses it to clean up dirt. he starts out being kinda annoyed by WALL-E and his mess, but ends up being a loyal little dude.
i thought this movie was a very good animated movie. i'll use a 1-5 rating system, 5 being the best. and i give WALL-E a 4 1/2.

i realized i had never said anything good about my sister. i talked about her but all i said is that she is snotty and i hoped that wouldn't get in the way of our spring vacation. she really is nice, although, yeah, she can be snotty. we get along really well compared to some other brothers and sisters. here's a few things i like about her:
she's willing to play with me (not always)
she gets happy real easily
she can have a good sense of humor
she is very smart (but sometimes she asks me how to spell things)
we keep each others secrets and i can trust her with that
i like that she has musical interests like i do.
she got my dad's old electric guitar as a middle school graduation present. when i get my new drum set i think it'll be fun to play with her.
i'm glad that liesl is my sister.
just cause i didn't want to make two posts, i'm going to combine my tongue twister for G with how cool my sister is!
Girl's got game!
(girl = liesl my sister)

diary of a wimpy kid, a novel in cartoons, #1 new york times best seller by jeff kinney
i just read the front cover of this book and my mom typed it in. this is a very good book. the book is exactly what it says. it's supposed to be a diary of... a wimpy kid! it's all written in sloppy printing with many doodles all over it. it's a funny book about a kid who has to go through middle school. he's this scrawny little boy named greg who can get wrestled down by a boy named fregley who's way nerdier than him, way smaller and a little bit crazy. greg and other wimpy kids get mixed up in school with these huge, mean bullies who are already shaving.
this is the beginning: "September, Tuesday. first of all let me get something straight. this is a journal. not a diary. i know what it says on the cover, but when my mom went out to buy this thing i specifically told her to get one that didn't say diary on it. great. all i need is for some jerk to catch me carrying this book around and get the wrong idea (imagine a doodled picture of greg writing in his diary while a bully punches him to the ground and calls him sissy)."
i recommend this book. there's comedy, romance, drama and action. ok, so maybe it doesn't have romance, drama or action, but it is funny. and i guess he does have to run away from a bully now and then and i guess that would be counted as action.
i'll use a 5-point rating system for book reviews, 5 being the best. and i'll give diary of a wimpy kid a 5 and 1/9th!

My class did a play and since we've been studying Norse mythology, we did one about the Aesir gods. The Aesir gods are like Odin, Thor, Loki, and all that stuff. I don't know if you've heard of Odin or Loki, but surely you've heard of Thor. The Aesir is the city of the gods which is much more than just Odin, Thor and Loki. I got the parts of Odin and Petmyr because we did the play twice. Odin is the "all father god" (the main god). Although he is not the main person in the play. Here are my lines for Odin. Imagine me like in the picture, holding a fake spear, speaking in a low, powerful, loud voice:
The daylight ends and darkness deepens
The sun descends, his horses leaping
Lightly over Asgards peaks
Night stars sparkle cloak
With sleep covers all
Let each return royally to his high hall
To wearily wonder
To dream or to ponder.
Frigg, my wife, both dread and dear
Wend you well to Finsalir
Hemdall, sleepless sentry, watch
O'er Asgard from Valasgalf
Freya, goddess of love and sorrow
to Sessumir go until the morrow
Thor, my strong and stalwart son
Bid abed till dark be done.
And though we live in laughing light
The Norns know of a deadly night
Will one day deepen Asgard's heights
A twilight thrice forsaken
From which we'll not awaken...
We still live in lights bright weaving
Sun gold gifts with grace receiving
Let not the night lead you astray
While with Aesir might you make your way.
Petmyr is an interesting character. Thor has to take three trials to win the woman of his dreams, Gana Hafta. Gana Hafta is a two headed giant, but Thor doesn't know. Loki tricked him by saying she was "twice" as lovely as any fair maiden. One of the trials he had was to pick up Utgard-Loki's (Gana Hafta's father) cat, named Petmyr! So i had to sit in the middle of the floor dressed in a really stupid cat costume while my friend, Nicolas, wearing a red and orange beard as Thor, and has to pretend that he can't pick me up. Here are my lines:
i don't know which one was more fun to play but i sure wish i had a cat picture i could show you!
