the monthly max phrase

the monthly max phrase is something i will do regularly. whenever i start to say a new phrase i will put it in the monthly max phrase. which means it might not be monthly, it could be daily, weekly, monthly, even yearly.

this "month's" phrase is:
Oh, My Good Gosh!!

maori spongebob

Tash McGill was at our house. in fact, she still is. as you might know, Tash is from New Zealand. she is a kiwi (a new zealander). the native kiwis are called maori (when Tash says that word, it sounds like "more-ee"). she found this thing which is a spongebob website of a tv show which actually exists, which is just the exact same thing as spongbob, but in the maori language.

middle school

SCHOOLS OUT!!!!!!!!!!

i'm officially a middle schooler. which means i'm a 6th grader. not 5th, 6th. 5th, not 6th. i mean, 6th or is it 5th. no, 6th, ya, 5th. i mean, 6th, ya, that's it, 6th.

that doesn't make a difference with school. because my school goes from preschool to 8th grade. but it does make a difference with church, i'm excited about that.

bye bye daddy blog

this is sad, my daddy is giving up his blog.

so this is a post about my thoughts about my dad giving up his beloved blog. first of all, my dad has been blogging for, i don't know, let's say four years and i've always thought that it's kind of kind of cool that he blogs. just the idea of my dad having his own website as a kid sounded like someone really important. who doesn't like the idea of their dad being someone important? and so when i figured out that i could get my own website (blog), i freaked! it was like christmas or fruitcake. it just kept on being exciting. i named my blog crazy max's blog which later became the shnazzy blog. then my dad decided his job and being with his family were the two things that made him most happy in life, so he quit twitter, he quit facebook, and he quit his blog.

it felt pretty weird to be the only blogger in the family. and of course it still does. for one, i'm sad that he quit his blog because i liked it! and for two, i'm happy that he quit his blog because he quit it for me, so he could spend more time with me (and my family). the happy part seems to be a little bit stronger so that's good.

don't ever expect me to quit like my wussy dad did, for family. i have my priorities in order! :o)

what does this say?

sorry i haven't been able to blog in a while. i haven't had enough time with homework and all. but i'm blogging now :o) the reason this post is entitled "terminator" is because i have watched all three terminator movies in the past two weeks. i'm preparing myself for T4 which is coming out may 21 at a theater near you.

i thought the first one was the best as most movies are. the second one was almost as good in my opinion so it was still very good but not quite as good. you got this? deep info, yes? and the third one wasn't nearly as good as the second one, but yes, it was still good.

i thought it was kind of stupid that arnold said he would be back, but he's not back and he's not going to be back because he has moved away from terminator and become governator. what a loss. i hope terminator salvation can manage being freaking awesome without the newly known governator. i'll report back after may 21 with more info on salvation.

how that top ten london list turned out

this post is officially my first post i've ever made after i've been in europe and you may notice that i have changed. london has moved me. sigh.... and i think i've picked up an accent.

this post is a response to how i thought of the things i thought would be the best (say that 10 times fast). here we go chaps. jolly good!

max's top ten things he was looking forward to in london list and how they turned out:

#10 flying lessons with peter pan--omg we found peter pan in kensington gardens, we went to neverland and frolicked a bit until we saw hook who was actually a homeless man sleeping in the woods behind the statue of peter pan. kind of freaked me out actually. so i didn't actually get the flying lessons but it was memorable!

#9 the whole concept of going to london with my mum--freakin awesome!

#8 double decker buses--people said they were nearly phased out. there were a lot of them, even the old ones. we went on double decker buses a bunch, sat in the front of the top and it was extremely cool. much better view than from the underground.

#7 diary of a wimpy kid do it yourself book (bought this for the plane trip)--cool i guess.

#6 getting one of the queen's guards to laugh. i'll tell them a fart joke--we went to buckingham palace at night. did you know the guards don't work at night? the queen was there, apparently unguarded. the only people guarding her were guys in camo carrying music stands around the grounds. very intimidating. but we did see some of the queen's guards at the tower of london guarding the jewels. so that was cool and i was going to tell him a fart joke. i really was. but i didn't know any and it felt somewhat awkward.

#5 pop art at the tate modern--it was really great but i got my hopes up too much. but on the other hand, i did get to taste a vanilla honey smoothie from the cafe. it was disgusting and sour, not sweet, sour.... what were they thinking! and it said with honey so why was it sour? doesn't make any sense.

#4 minding the gap--it didn't work out to well.

#3 high tea with the queen. i'm helping obama by giving her a second ipod, except this one is loaded with high school musical. she's gonna love it!--she loved it. i knew she was going to love it. i knew it. you knew it. of course, you know, we all knew it.

#2 a week without my sister (just kidding, no i'm not, actually i am, i don't know, kind of)--it was great, kind of, not really, no, no, yes, i don't know, mostly.

the #1 thing max is looking forward to in london is... sunny weather--this didn't work out so well either.

i'm leaving at noon. wish me luck!

p.s. i won't be blogging for a week and then i'll try to get back on track.

Kids' Choice Awards 2009?!

the kids' choice awards is something nickelodeon (a kids tv network) does where it's kind of like the academy awards but in kid form and it's not just movies. they also include music, tv and books and video games. the reason it's called the kids' choice awards is because kids vote to choose the winners of each category. BUT ALL THE KIDS WERE WRONG! they voted incorrectly!

for best movie, the nominees were:

iron man
bedtime stories
high school musical 3
dark knight

guess what one won? wrong! guess again... wrong again! one more chance... wrong, wrong, wrong!!! sadly, high school musical 3 was the victor, but fear no evil cause at that moment i swore my vengance on that movie. and no more shall people have to suffer from the stupid musical singings of zac efron and vannessa hudgens, i promise you good people. my tactics are not violent, only that i will send out energy from my palms which will cause them to be unable to sing any longer and all the cds and dvds of high school musical movies will shatter spontaneously into millions of pieces. you can rest at ease people with good movie taste.

every year the kids' choice awards uses thousands of gallons of slime and each year they beat their record of how much slime they use. this year will ferrell did the sluge (giant slip and slide but instead of water, slime of course). he landed in this huge tub of slime and it was awesome. as awesome as it was, it did not compare with some previous year slime stunts. my favorite slime stunt was probably the one where they shot a man out of a canon and he landed in a giant pool of slime. very cool.

so next year kids, vote correctly. feel free to check with me if you're unsure of who to vote for next time. and nick, figure out a better slime stunt next year. you know those roller coasters that go really fast down into water and then curve back up? replace the water with slime! that'd be awesome and have a bunch of kids ride the coaster! i want the front seat!!

xmas vacation

over the xmas break (like, a month ago) i went to michigan (did u now they call them selves michiganders ha ha ha).

well, anyways... when i went to michigan (like i do every year), i saw my mom's side the family, with my cousins lydia, hannah, julia, sarah, their parents (my mom's brother), rodney and ronda, and my grandparents, papa turner, and grandma nola. my grandma fixed really good breakfasts, and my papa has lots of cool things that i can play with. but, most of the time when i'm at their house, i'm playing ping-pong (they've got a killer ping-pong table).

and then, of course, there's my other side of the family (my dad's side), with my cousins rachel, kirsten and her husband jordan, jacob, zack and his new wife rachel, and shana. and then, on that family, there's also my grandma and grandpa oestreicher, along with my aunt lisa, aunt lori, uncle joe, and uncle rod. and then there's always a bunch of other people who come over, such as: luther and allison, angela and jack, robbie, michelle (and two of her kids, lindsay and sam).

they've got a ping-pong table there too. :)

i don't have a ping-pong table at home in california, but when i'm in michigan, i am "mr. ping-pong"!!

so, to sum it up: all i'm doing, mostly, at both grandparents' houses, is eating food made by my grandmas, and playing ping-pong.

hope you had a merry christmas too!

the shnazzy blog

i have recently changed my blog's name, from crazy max's blog, to the shnazzy blog. the reason i did this is because i have words that i make up, that are not real, but deserve to be. this one, i have actually heard in some other places; and i thought it was the awesomest word -- EVER. so now i use it a lot. if something's cool, i say, "that's shnazzy!"

i was talking to my friend forrest about shnazz and my blog, and he said that i should name my blog "the shnazzy blog." so i did!

i have also recently decided that if you do not have any shnazz in your life, if your life is shnazzless, you have failed at life.

so, by max law, i now command you to try to put shnazz into your life. and even if you fail, your trying is enough to have the shnazz god thrust shnazziness upon you.

shnazz on!
