Hi Peeps!
My favorite kindof book is a ghost storie/mystery and fanstasy. Two of my favorite authors that write those genres are
Dan Poblocki and Mary Downing Hahn. Some of Dan Poblocki's books are The Book of Bad Things, The Ghost of Graylock, and The Haunting of Gabriel Ashe. Some of Mary Downing Hahn's books are Deep and Dark and Dangerous, The Old Willis Place, and All the Lovely Bad Ones.

Entry #12 Taylor Swift's new album @ 04:15 pm

Current Mood: Nyan cat-ish
Current Music: Nyan cat Theme song

Hi peeps!
Do you like Talylor Swift's new album? T.S. 1989. The name is based on the year she was born;1989. Here's here cover=
download (13)download (14)download (15)Isn't pretty cool? I like the birds on her sweater. My dad just bought me the album. It's WAAAAAAAAY not like the Taylor Swift she used to be. I don't think it's her best album, but it's still pretty catchy. My favorite song on the track is Out of the Woods. If you listen and pay attention to the lyrics, you'll notice it's about getting into a car crash that she got in with her boyfriend. Here's the lyrics.
________________________________________________________________________________________________________"Out Of The Woods"

Looking at it now
It all seems so simple
We were lying on your couch
I remember
You took a Polaroid of us
Then discovered (then discovered)
The rest of the world was black and white
But we were in screaming color
And I remember thinking…

[Chorus 2x:]
Are we out of the woods yet?
Are we out of the woods yet?
Are we out of the woods yet?
Are we out of the woods?
Are we in the clear yet?
Are we in the clear yet?
Are we in the clear yet?
In the clear yet?
Good

Are we out of the woods?

Looking at it now
Last December (last December)
We were built to fall apart
Then fall back together (back together)
Your necklace hanging from my neck
The night we couldn't quite forget
When we decided (we decided)
To move the furniture so we could dance,
Baby, like we stood a chance
Two paper airplanes flying, flying, flying
And I remember thinkin'

[Chorus 2x](Are we out of the woods?!)

Remember when you hit the brakes too soon?
Twenty stitches in the hospital room
When you started cryin', baby, I did, too
But when the sun came up, I was lookin' at you
Remember when we couldn't take the heat
I walked out and said, "I'm settin' you free,"
But the monsters turned out to be just trees
And when the sun came up, you were lookin' at me
You were lookin' at me
You were lookin' at me,
I remember, oh, I remember

[Chorus 4x]
________________________________________________________________________________________________________So yeah. And if you don't know all of the songs on the album, you probably know her biggest hit on the album, Shake it Off.
YAY TAYLOR SWIFT!!!!

Entry #11 Dork Diaries! @ 03:59 pm

Hi Peeps!!
Have you guys ever heard of the amazing book series, Dork Diaries???? IT IS DA BESTEST BOOK SERIES EVER. Just kidding. But it is one of my favorites considering I think Nikki is a lot like me. Anyway, it's about a girl in school who writes in her diary, telling us (diary) what's going on in her life. Events like boys,parties, school, her sister, Briana, her best friends, Cloe and Zoey, and this one mean girl in her grade that bullies her around, (everyone has one,) Makenzie.
download (9)These are Chloey, (one of the 2 best friends of Nikki,) Nikki, (the main character) and Zoey, (the other best friend of Nikki out of the two.)
download (10)This is Brandon, Nikki's total crush. C'mon, everybody has a crush. I'm only on book 6 of Dork Diaries, but I think they have a thing. Brandon and Nikki are the perfect match. They're so cute together!!!!
download (11)This is Makenzie, Nikki's arch enemy. She's mean, rude, and tries to ruin Nikki's life. She's the popular girl in the school with ton of royal followers ("friends".) As you can see in the picture, she has a total crush on Brandon too. She's a monster. She's all innocent looking in the picture, but she's a big bully.
download (12)The girl jumping on Nikki is Nikki's little sister, Brianna. She's a disaster that's already happened. She's bratty, stubborn, and embarrassing. She's the one who embarrasses Nikki in public, steals Nikki's phone to play games, and she LOVES Princess Sugar Plum. But she is really cute and little so you gotta love her... :-)

Anyway, if you're reading this, you shoul definately read the amazing book series, Dork Diaries. Believe me, you'll give it 5 stars.

Entry #10 Day of the Dead!!!! @ 12:57 pm

Current Mood: Happy
Current Music: Vampire Weekend

Hi peeps!!!!
Happy Day of the dead!!! Day of the dead always makes me happy because I remember when my dad, step mom and I would go downtown in where we used to live and there would be this whole big day of the dead festival thing going on in all of the art studios and there would be all of the beautiful skull art and food, and it just made me happy! I miss those days. Anyway, here's an article about what day of the day is... Enjoy!
________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Celebrating The Day of the Dead has a long history in Mexican Tradition. The Day of the dead is celebrated on November 2nd. Sometime one hears reference to “the days of the Dead” which refers to the Days of October 31 – November 2. October 31 is Halloween or All Hallows eve. November 1 is “el Dia de los innnocentes” or the day of the children and All Saints Day. November second is All Souls Day or the Day of the Dead. Some Christian’s hold to the belief structure that every day should be treated like Christmas, - as every day Christ’s love is born and should be celebrated. Therefore, the positive, compassionate attitude that is associated with the Christmas season would ideally be maintained throughout the year. Christmas Day is celebrated formally to remind us of this value. The day of the Dead is similar. During the days of the Dead, some believe that the souls of the departed return to earth to visit with and to provide council or give advice to family and loved ones. There is a belief that this is true every day, but that November 2nd is the day set aside to remember and honor those who have past.
In Mexico, there is a tradition of visiting gravesites. Unlike the United States where graveyards are privately owned and maintained, graveyards in Mexico are often publicly owned or managed by local churches. It is up to the families of the deceased and other community members to maintain the graves. During the days of the dead, the family often takes the opportunity to visit the gravesite and pull weeds, clean any debris and decorate the graves of loved ones. Often candles, flowers and the favorite foods of the deceased are placed on the grave and the family visits, eats, sings and tells favorite stories about those who have passed. Food placed on the altar consists of the loved ones favorite dishes and treats.  Drinks should be placed in the altar to quench the thirst of the dead after their long journey back home.  In many villages it is customary to offer alcoholic beverages.  Salt is considered the spice of life and is one the staples that are often left at the altar.  The scents of marigolds as well as burning copal (a resin of the copal tree) are thought to be most beloved by the spirits of the dead and invite them back home.
The rituals used to celebrate the day are varied and colorful.  Yet, all carry the same message, celebrating the day of the dead is a true celebration of life.

China Doll

A girl was celebrating her 8th birthday, and as a present from her parents, she got a beautiful china doll, the girl decided to call her Sam. After a few days, the little girl was playing with the doll, until her mom called her to bed, the girl ut the doll on the basement and went to sleep.

Around midnight, the little girl woke up because she heard noises. Then she heard a voice chanting: "China doll, china doll, in the basement, china doll, china doll,in the stairs, china doll, china doll in your parent's room, now they're dead!".

After this, the little went back to sleep,a little scare. The next morning she went to see her parents into their room, and found them dead. She cried all da while her oldest brother was planning the funeral, falling asleep early that night.

That night the girl heard again the chanting: "China doll, china doll in the basement,china doll, china doll on the stairs, china doll, china doll in your parents room, china doll china doll in your brother's room now he is dead". The girl fell into a troubling sleep after.

In the morning, the girl went to see his brother, and found him dead. She spent all day inside of her room, not going out at all,and finally felt asleep that night.

Again, she heard that voice and chanting: "China doll, china doll in the basement, china doll, china doll on the stairs, china doll, china doll in your parent's room, china doll, china doll in your brother's room, china doll,china doll in you room". The girl woke up and saw the china doll standing next to her bed."Now you are dead!".

The next day, the police showed up, and found no sign of murder. All they heard was chuckling far away, the chuckle of a brown eyes china doll,waiting for the next victim.

Post #5 Halloween Tale- The Bell Witch @ 07:28 pm

Current Mood: kind of spooked

Hi Peeps!
John Bell Sr., who made his living as a farmer, resided with his family in Adams, Tennessee in the early 1800s. In 1817, his family came under attack by a witch, who was believed to be a lady called Kate Batts.[1] Various accounts written afterward, tell stories similar to other poltergeist legends. It began with noises in the walls and grew to include unusual sounds; people being slapped and pinched, objects being thrown, and animals being spooked without visible cause.

In the 1894 book An Authenticated History of the Bell Witch, author Martin Van Buren Ingram claims that the poltergeist's name was Kate, and that she frequently cursed the Bell family out loud. The activity centered on the Bells' youngest daughter, Betsy, and worsened after she became engaged to one Joshua Gardner.

Several accounts report that during his military career, Andrew Jackson was intrigued with the story and was frightened away after traveling to investigate. Other stories relate that the family was haunted by scratching noises outside their door after Bell found a half-dog, half-rabbit creature. Some stories end up with Bell being poisoned by the witch.[4] Accounts vary about the witch being someone who had been cheated by Bell or a male slave whom Bell had killed.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------So that's something I found on Wikipedia. But everybody has their own tale of the Bell Witch. Another one is Bloody Mary. Don't worry, I wont type it 3 times...
