Recently I have been reading the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead. They are fantastic. I highly recommend them to anyone who likes vampire books. There are currently five books in the series, with the sixth book on its way.

I love baking. I am a big fan of sweets. In fact, I may even create a blog of recipes.... hmm.. I enjoy making cakes using ready-cake-mix, but I hardly ever buy them because nobody else in my family enjoys them, and therefore I am not allowed to make them.
Cupcakes are really fun. I really need to make cupcakes soon. Here is a really good cupcake website that teaches you how to decorate your cupcakes and make frosting and lots more. I bought some marshmallows to make that frog decoration, on the link.
Honey joys are my new obsession. We made them for a get together with many people yesterday. They were a huge success.
I have always been a fan of hedgehog (It's like chocolate & biscuit slice). (We also made that yesterday). It is absolutely delicious. My sister always makes them, and I'm always gobbling them. Oh and once, she made these delicious fudge brownies, and for some extremely weird reason, no body else liked them, so the whole tray was left for me!!! I crave them... I think I finished the whole thing in 2 days! It was ooooooooh soooooo delicious! Hot, wet, fudgy centre was oozing with chocolate. Okay I'm exaggerating with the oozing chocolate part. But seriously, the thing was delicious! When I get the recipe, I will post it on the 'recipe blog' (if I make a recipe blog).
Random Irregular's blonde brownies, ahhhhhh, delicious! Click here to go to the recipe. They're so easy to make! My second time making them, the batter turned out to be really crumby and dry, so I added an extra egg. That extra egg made it taste like cake, instead of brownie, which was still delicious!
Baking is too fun to expain. I don't know why I didn't bake before.
I know many of you don't read Goosebumps, but I do, when I have nothing better to do. Most of the time they're interesting in a really pointless way. And even though I've only read a few (not more than 15), all of the ones I've read so far, include siblings or friends who always joke around, and never believe each other in a serious situation due to constant pranks. Some of the books have such sudden endings that they leave you with questions floating in your brain.
One of them, 'How To Kill A Monster' had an ending that was so hopeless, it makes me laugh!
But this one, 'My Hairiest Adventure' was quite different. It didn't have kids running around, playing pranks on each other. It had such a weird story, at the end it made me sick, literally. But now that I'm feeling better, I'm laughing.
A 12 year old boy, Larry, finds an out of date bottle of INSTA-TAN, and he and his friends spread it over themselves. Soon Larry notices weird, thick, black hair growing on his hands and knees, and soon, his face. Larry goes to the doctor every two weeks to get a shot, he thinks he knows why, but he doesn't know the real reason. He's far too embarrassed to ask his friends if the same thing happened to them, all because of the INSTA-TAN, and soon two of his friends unexpectedly leave home, without notifying anybody. Larry's usually chased by packs of dogs when he's out of the house. He thinks it's because of his yellow-eyed cat, Jasper, who is his good friend. And at the end, his parents reveal to him, that it was not the INSTA-TAN that made him grow thick, black hair, but because, Larry is not really a human, he's actually a dog. I know, WHAT THE HELL?!
The people in his town work for the doctor, and they're all experimental. The doctor invented something that turns dogs into kids, so parents come and adopt them, or whatever. But soon they return to their dog form after growing up. And in the end, he becomes a happy street dog, along with the rest of the pack of dogs, and his best friend, who 'unexpectedly left home'. And he still visits his mum and dad. One day when he came to greet his parents by barking and running to their car, he sees his mum walking out of the car with a baby wrapped in a pink blanket. The mum said "Good Jasper, you're a good Jasper." and he saw that the baby had yellow eyes, just like his cat. And that was the end, that made me sick. So the doctor turned Jasper, the cat, into a kid?! It made me sick!
I know Goosebumps are for younger readers, but they are good when you're bored. But I actually liked one of the books, called 'Goosebumps: The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb'. It was about a boy (and his cousin I think) who went to the Egypt pyramids and have spooky stuff happen.. That one was actually interesting for real. Anyway, it's time for me to borrow more Goosebumps books.
I highly recommend that you visit Random Irregular's blog and construct yourself a tray of blonde brownies as I did. Above is a picture of the brownies I made and as you can see, I've specially added extra choc chips on the top to make it pretty.
Thank you, Random Irregular, for this simple-scrumptious recipe.
Hi everyone. I know I haven't been posting for so long, but I have been busy. Here is a picture of the cupcakes I made this week. See the blue one on the top right-hand-side? That one's special. It's weirdly alien, like me. If you can't see what it's supposed to be, it's meant to be a face, but it's not normal hehe...
Q. Which video game do you have, or if you don't have one, which one would you want?
A. X-Box 360 - (3 votes) Nintendo DS Lite - (4 votes) Playstation 3 - (0 votes) Nintendo Wii - (2 votes)
I am a fan of video games. Does anyone have X-Box/360? I absolutely love the game Halo and it's sequels (Halo 2 and 3). I have never seen or heard of a better shooting/killing game. I also like car games. But Halo just ROCKS! Halo 3 is made for X-Box 360 only. We've clocked the others. It is sooooo cool. In Halo 3, I discovered this extremely cool weapon like a big stick, whatever you hit with it, the object blows up. It is just sooooooooooo awesome!!!! In the photo above, that's you in the game. You get to go in cars, planes, tanks and more, to kill the evil monsters in missions. You can even play against your friends, killing each other with no monsters involved. It just gets better every second. It’s really scary when you play alone. Nintendo DS is really cool too. But I think they need to make better games like Grand Theft Auto and more. Here are some more images of Halo 3
This is the view when you're playing multiplayer, killing each other, not missions.
That's you at the front^^
One of the creepy-zombie-looking-scary monsters you come across in the game.
" ...and so the day is saved, thanks to The Powerpuff Girls!" Erm, not quite. No, not in this movie. The Powerpuff Girls are the ones who are meant to be saving people and the world, right? But what happens when these superheroes turn into evil villiains?

"Bad Kitty" written by Michele Jaffe, is about a 17 year old girl, Jasmine Callihan, on vacation in Las Vegas with her family. She predicted her vacation would be about avoiding her cousin Alyson and her 'Evil Hench Twin' Veronique and trying to get the 'cute guy across the pool' to notice her. It is when a three legged cat, called Mad Joe, attacks her that she realises there's a whole unsolved mystery about the murder of Len Phillips. She's determined to solve the mystery with her best friends Polly, Roxy and Tom. Also along the way, she meets the 'cute guy across the pool' who may or may not be involved in the crime.
2 tablespoons oil ½ cup popping corn 170 g (6 oz/ ¾ cup) caster sugar 80 g (2¾ oz) unsalted butter 2 tablespoons honey 2 tablespoons cream
Method: 1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the corn and cover with lid. Cook for 5 minutes or until the popping stops, shaking the pan occasionally. Tip the popcorn into a big bowl.
2. Put the sugar, butter, honey and cream in a small saucepan. Stir over medium heat, without boiling, until the sugar has completely dissolved. Bring to the boil and boil, without stirring, for 5 minutes.
3. Pour the caramel over the popcorn and mix together. Leave to cool a little, then rub some oil over your hands and mould the popcorn into small balls. Put on a wire rack to set.
Note: When you pour the caramel over the popcorn, mix it together before it goes hard. Don’t wait; you need to mix it as soon as you pour it over the popcorn. Then once you’ve mixed it, leave it for around 3 minutes and then make the balls.
Do you want to make a painting on your boring t-shirt? Here is a website that tells you exactly how to... Although I have not tried it, you might be interested. Right now, I'm not feeling the spirit but just in case you are, here is the link: http://www.iratethis.com/t-shirtblog/01/s6.jpg
Believe it or not, the picture above is the interior of a 22 passenger stretch hummer limousine! Just look at the size of that! For more pictures of limousines click the link below, or if it doesn't work, just copy and paste. That's the reason I put the link as the website itself. http://www.bornrich.org/entry/luxurious-limousine-interiors/
I'm not sure if people understood the question correct, because I didn't know this many people liked chickens! The question was asking, what is your favourite animal, as a pet (not to eat). Anyway, chickens win!! Chickens are thee coolest. That lighter coloured chicken (above) looks exactly like my chicken, Little Yellow Friend 2, except fatter. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. I love chickens. ROCK ON CHICKEN LOVERS!
Twilightby Stephenie Meyer is a great book that you must read. It is about a 17 year old girl, Bella Swan. She meets mysterious Edward Cullen. There's something about him, which could ruin their lives. He is a vampire. And they're in love.
Also readNew Moonand Eclipse, the sequels to this great series. And Breaking Dawn, is coming out soon.
I recommend you read them in order otherwise you won't understand a thing.
You're crammed inside a cage. You can't move around or move your arms and legs. There are rotting bodies all around you. Your skin is scratching off from the wires of the cage. Your nails have curled around the cage wires and you're trapped.
I'm pretty sure you've heard about Battery Cage Hens. Each hen is squashed inside metal cages, each with space about an A4 sized sheet of paper. These hens do not have any dust to bathe in, space to stretch their wings, or a quiet place to lay their eggs. The cages are in artifically lit sheds. They're trapped in there for their whole life.
The hens are fed food that make them lay eggs. The farmers turn the lights on in mornings, causing chickens to believe it is the beginning of a new day and making them lay an egg. When a full day has not passed, farmers trick the hens by shutting the lights for a few hours and turning them back on so the chickens can lay another egg.
Due to stress and boredom, the hens often peck(ed) each other. But not for long, because the farmers came up with the solution of cutting one third of their beak off. They are not given any pain reliever and it sometimes leads to shock and death. The hens' only escape is the slaughterhouse.
These chickens do not deserve to be treated this way. They sacrifice (well, they don't have a choice) their lives giving eggs for human consumption.
If you eat egg, only buy Free Range. You never know where those Cage Eggs have been. Some hens use dead chickens as nests to lay their eggs. Those eggs could roll out and end up in our supermarkets.
This is a book you must read: Kiki Strike Inside The Shadow City - by Kirsten Miller
I did a book report and class oral presentation on this book so here is a blurb I have made:
12 year old Ananka Fishbein meets the mysterious Kiki Strike and together with a few other friends, they form a secret society called the Irregulars. They Discover the secrets of the long forgotten Shadow City, underneath the towns of New York.
But Kiki's evil auntie, Livia, Queen of Pokrovia and her daughter, Sidonia, Princess of Pokrovia are out to get Kiki and her guardian, Verushka.
The Irregulars must watch one of their members, Betty, as she attends the rich and famous Bannerman Ball, in search of clues about recent kidnappings. But Princess Sidonia has set a trap for the Irregulars.
Will it be too late before Kiki Strike and her friends can save the Shadow City from being discovered by others?
Action packed and full of excitement. This book is great for girls who like reading about teamwork and discovery.
Also read: Kiki Strike: The Empress's Tomb
the second book of this spectacular series.
(This book was presented in class by my friend, Random Irregular)
Instead of hanging around with sharp objects and self defence skills, some women choose to purchase this pretty black jacket. When the No-Contact Jacket is activated by the owner, 80,000 volts of current is delivered just below the surface shell of the jacket. If a stranger were to grab hold of the person, they would feel a shock, not to kill them but enough for them to get the message that the person is dangerous and protected. It is illegal in some countries. I do feel sorry for those who may innocently get attacked when accidently bumping into the jacket!
