Penquins Don't Lose Stuff.

I took pictures of the meager giveaway prizes two days ago and sat down to download the pictures and write the post about it, but the fact remains that

I can't find the camera cord.

I even cleaned my room, trying to find it. And though my room needed cleaned, I'm still bitterly disappointed that I can't start the contest yet. 

I'm really, really sorry about that.

A Wall of Rabbits.



Pictures from the post about Hunt Slonem's painting loft, a 15,000 square foot flat (or house or something) which is approximately eight times the size of my house--and he doesn't even live in it!

So from the five pictures I saw of it, the walls are all neat-ish colors, and everywhere is decked out in walls of rabbits and birds and such, all of which this Hunt Slonem guy paints. He's planning an art show soon

SPACE MINING



I have no idea how I feel about mining asteroids for profit. It seems as though we should be focusing on things that are happening in this world and try to get things straightened out first before we spend that much money mining for water and such, but... I don't know.

So a few days ago one of my rabbits (Susan) had her kits.


I don't think I've been so excited since this photo was taken!

Not really.  I was lying.
I can't find Hope's camera chord at the moment, so even though I have photos of the new rabbits, I'm having technical difficulties and can't post them.

Anyway, I think I have two blacks and a broken chocolate--I'm glad to see that Susan passed down her color to at least one of the kits! Also, we finally got our one prized black buck to breed, and we are all extremely happy about it. They're about four days old now, and doing great!

(And as a note about the giveaway; I'm gathering all of the junk prizes to take pictures of them. It should be in the next post where I show them to you.)

For Sale?

This one died, by the way.

Hi, guys! Today, because I haven't blogged in a few days, I'd like to tell you that one of my hobbies include breeding and showing rabbits. 

And, any day now, I'm expecting two litters of rabbits from two of my better does, Susan and Andromeda.


In my last two litters, I got four Hollands and one Mini Rex, only one of which I like--did you guess it? Susan, the Mini Rex.

Just for reference, I breed Mini Rex's. And I did one litter of Holland Lops last May, out of this despicably evil rabbit we call Poppy:

$10, plus shipping and handling.

But we've decided to get out of Holland Lops, so if you might want to buy this rabbit, contact me or something.

94th Post!

Guys, I've just reached an incredible milestone: This is my 94th post! HUZZAH!

I feel as though we've been through so much together since last September, on that infamous day when my Mom [finally] let me get a blog, and discovered that [sometimes] I can be quite funny. So thank you for having confidence that I would do well with this blog business. 


We've been through porcupines sitting on tree limbs...


And kitty C-Sections...


And unbelievably evil rabbits...

Oh right. I haven't gotten to that yet--but I will! Just in the future, because right now I have to be all stereotypical and commemoratory and stuff. 

Anyway...


We've been through hats and laptops.


And doorways with posters of books and TARDIS's over them.


And rabbits.


And OH. MY. DARWIN. J.K. Rowling is releasing a new book for adults.



More rabbits. Now would be a good time to note that every rabbit in this picture except the black-and-white one died from E. Cuniculi. 


Waifer-thin girls.


And Harry Potter/Aladin crossovers jokes.


And farmhouses my family got evicted from while this blog was in its second to third month in the running. 


And cool space women that I drew for other Nanoers.


And... eww. I've looked at this picture hundreds, hundreds of times, and my gag reflex still hasn't toned down any.



Possibly the best slam on the Pioneer Woman that I've done...







Spotted bellies, wow
From a cat who says meow
What a lame haiku.
Anyway, expect a post tomorrow (Monday) for my brand new rock-themed giveaway, which I'm sure only Neville and Avi are going to enter, but I'm holding it anyway.

WAITWAITWAITWAITWAIT. I'M HOLDING A GIVEAWAY? And not just a giveaway--A ROCK-THEMED GIVEAWAY?!?!?!

You might want to settle down, because I'm not going to give out Elton John bobbleheads. 

Like, literally, it's going to be a rock-themed giveaway. I have geode slices and pieces of granite found on my street (I'm kidding! I found them somewhere else), and hollow pencils that have little pebbles inside of them, and shiny postcards, and... I can't remember any of the other things right now, but I'll get back to you on it, tomorrow.

(Also, as a note for the near future, now would be a good time to tell you to research your 19th century scientists. It might just help you.)

Hello, world.

So today while scanning the internet I found this photo, and I have to say that I fullheartedly agree with it.




I had to smile when I saw it.

Penguins Don't Let Their Plots Simmer.

It's my 92th post, and I feel that we know each other well enough for me to finally show you what I actually write about. All of my following works are fiction, and the covers were made by me (except for the last one. That one was designed by the amazing Fena).

1. Mermaidens.


Believe me when I tell you that I just spent the past ten minutes making this cover, specifically for this post. So I expect you to feel like a privileged blog reader, okay? Because I like to spend my time entertaining you. 

......

Also, I just needed a cover for it.

So anyway, this story is about two twin sisters, whose mother was killed by mermaids when they were younger--and their father runs the country they live in.  And there is a slight infestation of she-fish living in the lakes and streams around the country, but the dad blatantly ignores it, in favor of a new healthcare bill. 

There's also a boy named Calvin, who has a pretty decent role in the book. 

Remember when I said in the last few paragraphs that the country has a slight pest problem? Well, they kill young women. And Calvin's job is fishing these girl's bodies out of the lakes. Creepy, I know, but I just love it.

He also has a big black horse named Minos--which makes me like Calvin slightly more.


2. Space Girls


I definitely (take note of how I spelled that) love this storyline--but if I didn't love it, I wouldn't continue writing, would I? I don't think I would. There are quite a few things in this world that I finish, and a story I don't enjoy writing in my free time sadly isn't one of them.

This novel is about three girls and a smattering of alien men-type creatures, and love, and pickled vegetables. 

That's all I'm going to say, because if you look on my about page, you will find the link to go read it somewhere else online. Keep in mind that there are only a few chapters yet, and that it's not finished.

Thank you.

3. Flowerhead.


I also just made this cover for this blog post.

I swear, the things I do for you guys. 

I started writing this story yesterday, a few hours before bed. It's my intention that this piece will only be a few thousand words long, and I expect to have it completely finished and up on Figment by the end of this month. 

So far it's about a boy named Liam, who's a writer. He's writing about a girl with flowered hair.

And that is all I have. I'm only about a thousand words in so far, and I'm still developing the characters and setting and foreshadowing and minor stuff like that. I think it's going to be fun to watch play out. 




4. First Spark.


I've put this novel on hold right now, while I write Space Girls and Flowerhead. I can't wait to return to it, later, but for now, I have no plot in mind for it, so I'm letting the story simmer, like one of my very favorite authors Jackson Pearce said I should do last week at the liveshow. Her being an author, I decided to take her advice and just let it sit.

It's a dystopian about these creatures who have killed almost the entirety of the human population. The point of view is from one of the few thousand remaining humans; a teenager named Tessa. 

I'd tell you more, but as I said earlier, it has no plot yet, and I have no idea what I'm going to do with it. 

So yeah. Those are all of my current projects. As you can see, I've thrown myself head-first into the pile of shredded ideas that is my mind, and I've pulled out several stories that might or might not work. 

Who knows?

April Fools!

Hoo-lah! I'm pretty sure you guys fell for it!

Haha, I'm not going to quit blogging. I like it too much to give it up. Plus I want to do other things with this blog yet, and I spent a lot of money on an upcoming giveaway. 

Consider this the actual April Fool's day prank. Anyway, I'll blog later. Bye guys. :)

A Picture of a Nothing.

I hate this blogging business. I hate that I appear to only be writing to my mom. I hate how no one else reads this thing except for me. I hate how this blog has swallowed up my life.

I want to be outside, riding my horse, or drawing stuff--but I've become too addicted to this blogging business. Instead of doing meaningful things, I'm sitting in my room, writing about past meaningful things.

And so, I'm quitting this blogging business.

Now have a picture of a nothing.

A Pro-po-sition.

Dear Hope (my sister),

Maybe we could do some sort of twin blog?

Or, you know, triple blog (I'm talking to you specifically here, NevlleGirl. Just comment below if you want to jump on this idea, too).

Look, I made a few crudely drawn photos of me explaining it.


And, to add a bit of incentive, I drew a picture to share with you.



Okay, before either of us starts to feel more uncomfortable, I think we should stick to text for the rest of this post. I'll try to make it short, too:

1. I like designing blogs. So... I'd get to design it or something. You can put your input in for color schemes and blog buttons and tabs and whatnot, but other than that... no.

2. You have to do a punishment if you miss a blog post (i.e. Vlogbrothers style).

3. I like lists.

So do you want to do it?

Leave your comment in the doobly-doo below, NevilleGirl, if you're slightly weirded out by me and/or you want to try it out with Hope and I.

Also, Hope, if you want to do it, then that's cool.

Emma Watson.

Hello Neville, and Avi. It's nice to be writing this blog post with only two people in mind.

My mom has finally decided to let me show a photo of myself on the internet.



Haha, just kidding. I don't look like Selena Gomez. Here we go:

















Also, I'm kidding.

 

Nope.



No.
