SANTA!

Ok so gotta make this quick because Santa's almost here! (I REALLY REALLY BELIEVE IN SANTA)
I am tracking Santa through "NORAD Tracks Santa" here is a link: CLICK HERE! And I am so excited. I will try and post tomorrow (Christmas) but I might not have time. Again I'm SO EXCITED!!!!!!!! I'm freaking out I'm so excited! Anyone who DOESN'T BELIEVE IN SANTA I have a message for you:

You are trying to be grown up and mature and cool by not believing in Santa, but really you are being IMMATURE by not believing. You need to understand that if you believe in something, it is real. Though no one has any proof Santa exists, do we have any proof that he doesn't? Even if your parents tell you Santa isn't real, do they have proof? No. So, to me, Santa is real. You are a bad person anyway.

YAYYYYYY SANTA! AHHHHHHHHHHH! YAYYYYYYYY!
LOVE, ISOBEL

so sorry again!

I had a big mixup and didn't hear about the three days of halloween post/300th post until it was too late! I apologize completely.

I agree entirely with what Isobel said about our friendship and this blog, but I want to second that by saying that so many people do read our blog which is amazing, but beyond that the blog is still around no matter how many readers or followers or viewers we have, and the bond is still there. As much as I do love that people actually read our blog, it isn't essential at all, because we made this blog to have a lasting friendship and it has entirely succeeded. I don't think we would have stopped posting had nobody ever gone to this site, and if nobody ever reads this message then I don't care. Frankly I don't think we could stop posting because it would be too heartbreaking and emotional. This page has a life on it's own, and it holds us all together. I love the fact that we have a blog and I love the fact that we both post on it so much.

It's a great luxury to have so many awesome readers as we do, and don't think that I take that for granted. I remember having conversations about our followers, Isobel and I, and how awesome they were, and how we practically threw a party when we got our 20th follower. You guys are great, and it's an amazing feeling to put something out there that's a message you just want to be heard, and then know that it is being heard. I wish everybody could follow everybody on the internet, because then we would have what, 7 billion followers? That's crazy and amazing and a bit heartbreaking to think about.

I encourage everybody to get a website, get a book, get some way to make your voice heard, and then yell. it's never a waste of time.

The Second Day of Halloween

Hi! 
HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
I hope your having a fantastic halloween. Here are a couple funny halloween videos to begin the post:















Also, a list of great food options for Halloween:



  • Candy Apples
  • Cupcakes
  • Juice/Water
  • Pizza
  • And lots and lots of Candy

Things to Do:

  • Go trick or treating. C'mon your not that old. But don't be those rowdy teenagers who always take like three candies and you have to chase down the street with your chainsaw. Don't be that guy.
  • Go bobbing for apples. Stick your head in a bucket of water will people are cheering for you to drown.
  • Have a partaaaaaay. 

And remember Halloween is supposed to be scary! Have fun! 


Lots of Love, Isobel






The First Day Of Halloween - Isobel

Hello everyone!

This is The First Day of Halloween post. If you haven't heard I will be doing a triplet of posts called: The Three Days of Halloween. The first (this post) will be how to prepare, the second (tomorrow's post) will be how to celebrate), and the third will be how to prolong the halloween spirit.

Today I am going to show you a video of the decorations in my house. Here it is!


This is in the future:
Stupid blogger didn't let me upload the video. If it changed its mind ever, I'll post it.



Feel free to use my decorations as inspiration! Have a great day before Halloween!

Love, Isobel

300th Post

Hello darling viewers,

This isn't the first halloween post, but it IS  a even more important post. This is the 300th post! Now this isn't going to be funny, but I really wanted to make this post special. I just wanted to tell you guys how much I love you and our blog. This blog means soooooo much to me. Not only is it fun to write, create and have fun with, but it is truly the one way me and Iris stay best friends. If you haven't already heard the story, go to "About Us". But to make a summary, me and Iris met in kindergarten, were best friends all year long, until I had to move across the country. That was five, six years ago. We wanted to stay friends, so we created this blog. We had no idea it would get so many viewers and be this popular. We have had fun for so long writing posts for you guys, and are STILL best friends, even though we only see each other once a year. SO, I just wanted to say thanks for reading our blog and congratulate our friendship and our blog. Without our viewers, we probably would have stopped this blog a long time ago!

Love, Isobel

IRIS: INSERT YOUR NOTE HERE!

Still Sick...

Dear Lovely Blog Readers,
I'm still sick which makes me very very sad. I had a miserable weekend, and now, Monday, I am still not at school. On Thursday I missed melted crayons, on Friday I missed fudge, and today I'm missing going to the movies. Sigh....... I hope you're doing well, though. Here is some funny photos of my cat:






Lots and Lots of Love, Isobel

Sick and sad.... (and very, very sorry)

I truly am sooooooooooo sorry I haven't been posting lately. I've been so busy with middle school and homework and all that. At the moment, I am terribly sick... My father got sick first, then my mother, then my sister and now me. It's plowed through my whole family. My throat feels horrible. I'm eating lots of honey to heal it though. And what's even worse is that today at school I missed photo day retake, exploding crayons and tons of work. The only thing good about today is that two days ago Pirates of the Caribbean 4 came out and now Mummy and me are going to watch it.

Lots and lots of love,
Isobel

(I am very, very sorry I haven't posted)

Runaways

The Runaways are this really awesome comic book series about 6 kids who discover their parents are super villains, which leads them into the whole Marvel universe and they become wide known superheroes. It's kind of a modern play on traditional superhero comics--with really amazing art and writing. Well anyways there are plans to make it into a movie, which I would be really excited for. But you know their publisher, Marvel, only makes a certain amount of movies every year... And so even though the script Has been written and they've already begun filming, people are saying it's probably not going to come out until 2014. I sö hope that they're wrong...

So pretty much Runaways is just this amazing comic that everybody should read and force marvel to make into a movie! But I have to say the movie will either suck suck suck and not do the books justice, or be really amazing. If you do read them, though, do it in order starting from #1. The plot is really twisty and well-constructed so don't spoil anything for yourself!

Girl up

This is a UN foundation against child brides, Isobel showed it to me. Did you know that 1 in 7 girls worldwide will be married before she turns 15??? It's time to change that number!!! It's an awesome organization and they're making a petition to use for the Obama administration, but they need 15,000 people on the petition! So do it already!

Moulin Rouge












Okay so, I love musicals. At least most, I don't like the old ones..... But still. This is my list of musicals, with the new AH-MAZING addition.
My favorite musicals:

Chicago
Mamma Mia
Nine
Grease
and the new edition (drumroll please):
MOULIN ROUGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, I watched this movie and I instantly loved it. If you haven't seen it, drop everything and watch it. I am serious. Nothing should matter more in your life at this precious moment than watching Moulin Rouge. So I'm serious. Drop it all right on the floor in front of you and watch the movie!

Now I need to show you my favorite song in this musical.
EL TANGO DE ROXANNE!
But don't bother listening to it if you haven't seen the movie.
If you have seen the movie, here is the lyrics scroller and video.
But REMEMBER if you haven't seen the movie, don't watch the video!!!!!!!!!!!!




If you haven't watched the movie this is your to-do list!

1. Watch the movie!
2. Become obsessed with El Tango De Roxanne
3. Carry on what ever you were doing before.

My Cat's Crazy Outburst of Hysterical Fear

Helllo!
This is very random, but I will tell you this any way. So, today I was hanging outside, gardening with my mum and walking around on the deck. My cat was there too, and we were all standing together. Then a fly lands on the pot right next to my cat, and he jumps into the air about five feet high, runs in circles and then bolts down the stairs and through the door with his tail all puffy.
So ya it was really funny....

Martha Graham




I think you people would find it interesting to know that today is Martha Graham's 117th birthday! You probably already saw the google animation, but I thought you might want to know some more about her:

Martha Graham was a modern dancer and choreographer, and if you've never heard of her--her impact on dance is comparatively the same as Picasso's on the visual arts. She danced and taught people to dance for over 70 years. She accomplished things such as being the first dancer ever to perform at the White House, and winning the highest possible USA civilian award--the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Among her other awards she also received the Key to the City of Paris, and the Japanese Imperial Order of the Precious Crown. In 1936, she accomplished her most famed production, "Chronicle." She was also famous for quotations people have taken from her, such as this one, which she said to Agnes de Mille after her musical Oklahoma! came out, 'There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. ... No artist is pleased. [There is] no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others."

She was born in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania in 1894 and died when she was 96 in 1991, saying: "I have spent all my life with dance and being a dancer. It's permitting life to use you in a very intense way. Sometimes it is not pleasant. Sometimes it is fearful. But nevertheless it is inevitable."


I'm not actually a dancer or anything but I thought her story was very interesting!

Bob Marley



Ahhhhh! Love him! His songs are so cool! Here are some of my favorites (with links)!

Three Little Birds - Link

Buffalo Solider - Link

One Love - Link

Redemption Song - Link

Waiting in Vain - Link

Some information about him:

Bob Marley was born on Feb. 6, 1945 and died on May 11, 1981. He was a Jamaican reggae singer, who sung about social issues in his homeland. He was half black and half white, and his dad died when he was ten. He smoked weed and he belonged to the Rastafari movement (a religion that was a key element in reggae music.) He had twelve children, three with his wife Rita, two adopted from Rita's previous relationships and seven more with seven other women. He died of cancer when it spread through his body. He was on his way to his home, Jamaica , but he died in Miami. He died with his son Ziggy at age 36. His final words to Ziggy were "Money can't buy life."

I personally think he is very inspiring and that you should be constantly listening to him.

P.S. Iris named her cat after him!!!

Sick!

Hello peoples!
I am so sorry I haven't been able to post lately.
Today, I am sick. I feel awful. I cannot say a sentence without coughing up my guts. I haven't gone to school for the past two days. I am sneezing constantly and I am miserable. On the bright-side I get to watch lots of fun movies! On Sunday I watched "The Bourne Identity", It was amazing! On Monday I watched Marie Antoinette for the fourth time, it was fantastic! Today I plan to watch Nemo, The Lion King, The Bourne Supremacy or something else. Well, I have to go take I shower... ugh. Goodbye!

Ski week

Well, so far ski week has been a total UN-success because the good part of the whole week has been spent with me having an earache, fever and really bad cold so I can't even enjoy it! The one good thing that has happened so far (and vacation's going to be over on Monday,) is that all the weather forecasts say that it's going to snow so much that there will be 1" in the financial district tomorrow morning!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY! (I realize that sounds really pitiful to people everywhere else in the country, but dude, I live in California. Not once have I seen snow within a 2-hour drive of where I live.) So anyways, apparently this big nation-wide storm is going to hit where I live! Wowzers! There hasn't been as much snow as the forecasts tell of in 40 years. Extremely exciting though it is; it's got to make you feel bad about global warming. (If you don't already know that global warming makes extreme weather on both sides of the thermometer, you need to do your homework.) However, this storm was supposed to have started yesterday, which it very much DID NOT, so I am not setting my expectations too high. But it's going to snow, and I haven't seen snow in over 5 years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So you want to learn Chinese

我 叫 漠 如 思。我 十 一 岁 了。我 一 家 有 四 口 人。我 妈 吗,我 爸爸,我 妹妹,和 我。

Yes, my secret talent has been revealed. I speak (not fluent) Chinese!!! Yay me!

The best part is that you too can master this foreign language. My chinese teacher has created an entire database of flash cards for every single lesson for every single grade that she teaches. They can all be accessed by clicking this link.

Unless you already know the basics, you should start by clicking "Textbook 1" in the menu, then selecting "00 Pinyin." Pinyin is like the Chinese alphabet. (Totally separate from characters; those are all memorization!) It's simply a pronunciation key for characters. They have the same letters, but entirely different sounds. B is like "booah", Q is like "chee," and so on. Listen to the alphabet song, it's very helpful.

Anyways, all the lessons other than 00 Pinyin have a link that says "Flash Cards." Click it, and take the multiple choice quiz on the front page, then click "Study." Trust me, this will all make a lot more sense once you try it!

The flash cards show a character at the top. Write this character on a piece of paper, then write what you think is the pinyin, then the meaning. Click "Show answer" and see if you were right! Once you get through all the cards, try again! This time click "Reverse cards" and read the pinyin and meaning and write the character!

Of course I also use textbooks and worksheets and what-not, but this is a good start! So try it!

Snow Day!


Some background: Basically where I am living is under a giant snow storm. There is wind and snow and it is really cool. The maximum of snow that might fall in the night is 31 inches, the minimum being 18!!! For some more info go to : CLICK! or CLICK!

I am so excited because there is going to be a snow day tomorrow at school! My school hasn't had a snow day in fifteen years! We broke the record! It was fantastic! My teacher didn't know , and when I walked out into the hallway it was so chaotic! Everybody was screaming and I was wondering what was going on. I first noticed that all the big brothers and sisters were in the hallway waiting for us, then I noticed the storm outside... it was amazing! There was so much wind it looked like a tornado had hit and the snow was everywhere. I could barely see across the field! Then I heard someone yell "Snow day!" and everyone went crazy! Everyone was screaming and yelling and hugging: it looked a bit like a soap opera where 59 people (my grade's size) just heard that a dying patient was alive. I joined the party and yelled my fair share. Then, my friend appeared and she said "I just went outside: OMG! It is so windy and snowing, it is crazy!" I asked her if I could go out with her again and I ran down the stairs to the field, it was so cool! At first it actually seemed quite pleasant, we were under a small roof outside and I could just watch the whirlwind from afar... Then a giant gust of wind got flung in my face and I almost fell down. My friend and I decided that well, maybe it was time to go in... We got back and suddenly a million sledding or hanging out plans were whirling around the hallway and I got invited to so many things. After that I hugged all my friends, and said that I had to go, because I needed to get home fast before the traffic gets too bad to drive in. Then I ran down the hallway and I quickly got in the car for a 30 minute drive home, instead of a five minute drive! It was really cool!
