Sorry I've Been Away

Hello everybody!

As you probably noticed, I've been gone for a year. So many new experiences I haven't had time to post, but I'm back now, after my yearlong hiatus! One thing off the top of my head I might want to write about is the new Kiki Strike book that just came out, The Darkness Dwellers.

The new book
As you probably know, I am a huge fan of Kiki Strike and I urge you to check out some of the books by Kirsten Miller, the author. Click here to go to her blog. Kiki Strike is a great book about adventurous girls, so if you like original girl-power adventure, you should totally read it. Thanks for coming, and there will be more new posts soon!

I Love Purple Elephants (and MLK)

The title of this post may sound like complete nonsense but it's true.  I really do love purple elephants.
And here's a picture of one.  This one is a kind of drawing thingy-mabob, but it's cute! There are two reasons for this post.  One, I had a pic of a Purple Elephant that I found, and I wanted to post it.  The other one is that I wanted to ask you if you ever liked something for absolutely no reason at all.  Because that's the way purple elephants are with me.  I just like them for no reason at all.  Which is cool.  Oh, that just gave me an idea.  Why don't I make a list of the things that I like for no reason at all, and you can make yours in Comments!  Here goes:

1. Purple Elephants, of course!
2. Colored Sticky Notes
3. Daybeds
4. Windowsills

OK, that's not very much.  But I have reasons for most of the things I like.  These are the select few that I don't have reasons for.  So yeah, that was mostly what I wanted to say.  But I have forgotten! It's Martin Luther King Jr. Day! So now I have to talk about that!

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. (I'm getting a little tired of writing that out, so it's MLK) Google has issued a Google Doodle, one of those things where Google changes itself for a day (I love them!) Here it is. I'm not going to go into detail about MLK much, but I will supply some facts about him, if you want to say something smart while having a conversation or whatever.   MLK wasn't born with the name Martin.  He was born Michael, but changed his name.  I personally didn't know that, so if you did consider yourself ahead of me in that respect.  MLK also graduated from high school early, at the age of 15.  He had four children, as you should know (it says it right there on the picture, people) and one of them was named Martin Luther King, III! I guess that name must have been pretty liked by the family.

And that brings an end to today's post.  If you want to know more, click on the Google Doodle and then click on one of the links.  Have a great holiday!

Unlucky 13

Sorry that I haven't posted lately! Life is busy 'round these parts.  The days keep going by…10th, 11th, 12th, 13th.  Which brings me to the reason for this post.  Today is Friday the 13th.  The famous unlucky day.   Why does everyone think so???
13 is the unlucky number.  Some buildings don't have 13th floors. Some hotels don't have rooms numbered 13.  Civilization is terrified at this perfectly normal number.  And why? Who knows!?! I sure don't.  In fact, I was talking to some folks the other day about Friday the 13th and one girl said that 13 was actually her lucky number! 
So this leads me to the conclusion that 13 was just chosen by humankind to be "unlucky".  I never really have negative experiences with the number 13.  So don't be afraid of 13.

Next, We Have New Year's!

People have probably noticed that it's almost New Year's.  We are finally graduating from 2011 and are ready to move on to 2012.  It feels kind of weird to me, when I think about it, because I still feel like 2010 has just ended.  But I'm getting used to the idea.
I've been thinking more about this particular year, 2012, more than just the usual "Aaah! How could it be the next year already!" stuff.  Because of the ancient Mayans.  It's all their fault that half the population is entertaining the idea that the world is going to end on December 12, 2012.  And they're just saying it because their friends watched the movie "2012" or something.  Nobody even knows the real truth!  Because let's face it.  I really don't think the world is going to just, you know, stop just because the Mayans said so.  Anyway, they might not have even predicted it.  It might just be modern fault.  And 12/20/2012 was just the end of the Mayan's "Long Count" cycle.  They thought the earth might "renew" itself.  Ha.  I mean, how is that going to happen?  I  don't mean to be offensive, though.  You can believe what you want to believe.  This is just my opinion.  It's my blog, after all. 
Anyway, Happy New Year's!

The Holidays are Coming!

Hi, everyone!
So this morning I was sitting there eating chocolate chip pancakes.  Yum.  Then it dawned on me.  It's almost winter break! I was elated and gleeful and then I realized something else.  It's almost Christmas and Hanukkah and Kwanzaa and whatever else you celebrate! (Forgive me if I left out someone's holiday.  Notify me in Comments and I'll edit).  I'm really excited!  Two whole weeks off of school and holidays! *does happy dance* YAY!  Happy Holidays, everyone!!

Hello and welcome to my blog!
I want to tell you that this blog IS NOT A FOOD BLOG!
I have no knowledge whatsoever of food or cooking, so a food blog would be highly improbable.
I'm assuming that most readers know what a "pupu platter" but I will take the liberty to explain anyway. A pupu platter is an American-Chinese platter of many different foods. The origin of the word comes from Hawaii. I used the name for my blog because this blog will be like a pupu platter, full of a lot of different things but still interesting to read.
Thanks for dropping by!
