My toe!!!!!!!!

Today I stubbed my toe worse then I ever have in my life. I was sitting down to eat, I slid my chair over to the side, then BAM it hit my toe. I ran up the stairs screaming my head off. I calmed down and then came back to eat, but when after an hour the pain had not left at all, I googled "stubbed toe treatment." I ended up on an article by a doctor.
As it turns out, if a stubbed toe is not treated correctly it can lead to a serious injury. I read it and tried to follow the instructions as well as I could. Basically the main thing it said was you need to not put pressure on it, keep it elevated at least six inches, Don't bandage it, and keep it away from anything hot.

You need to be sure to treat it correctly, because if not treated quickly, you might find in a couple years you're diagnosed with severe Arthritis, and the cause was you kicked the bedpost five years ago.

If you stub your toe you may have not just "stubbed your toe". It would feel exactly the same if you broke a bone in your foot or did something to your muscles. I don't think that happened to me, but it still was pretty bad. it swelled up really quickly and the toe nail looked ready to fall off. I suggest you read the article at this link.

Maru Maru Maru!

As all you should know by now, Maru the famous feline youtube star with a blog who lives in Japan is awesome. He has some extraordinary news...

wait for it...

HE HAS A BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Maru the cat's owner wrote a book called "I Am Maru." It got published very recently by the Tokimeki Japanese publishing corp. Since it was published so recently, it might be a while until it get's to your local book store. It'll probably be able to find easier if you're place has a Japan Town, which isn't that common. Basically it's not like a Harry Potter book or something that you can effortlessly find at any old book store or library. You might also want to know that Since Maru has a lot of youtube videos, he has a "Best Fifteen" dvd that could be awesome. But if you're like me and you've seen every single one at least a dozen times now, that's not as big of an attraction.

Guest Blogger: Suzanne!

Finally the moment is here! We have waited practically two months (if I remember correctly) and the winner is Suzanne!

So, I'm visiting my dear friends in Chicago for a few days. Chicago is a big beautiful city in the midwest on Lake Michigan. There is so much to do here. Yesterday, we went to the Art Institute, and took a river boat cruise. It's amazing how much of this city is near the Chicago river. You wouldn't want to swim in the river though! It's too dirty, but it's still pretty to look at. If you want to go swimming you can go swim in the lake! Chicago is also a great place for shopping. There are tons of great shops, and wonderful restaurants too. It's not a good place for a diet! So, since there is so much to do in Chicago, I thought it would be fun to have a poll about the best things to do in Chicago.

That is Suzanne's post, she also has a poll but no video or photo, her poll can be found to the left of the post. We would also like to appreciate the other two people who commented to be guest blogger, Rachael94 and Sheridan. We thought all their polls were great so we're posting them all!


The Troodon is my favorite dinosaur. He's really cute and small, for a dinosaur. He was only 3 meters long, (6.6 ft.) and 1 meter (3.3 ft.) tall. He's a lot like a bird with a giant pointy tail.
