And so it was...

So came to be, the first, and most important potato of the potato history, and to him God said, "One day, you will be the favourite food of many." And the potato was happy. He bragged to the turnips and carrots and peas and lettuce and yams about his conversation with God. The other veggies pouted and went back to sleep in the dirt, waiting for the first farmer to come by. Everyday the potato dreamed of his descendants being mobbed by the descendants of the first paparazzi, asking for autographs, wildly taking pictures. The potato, who eventually became known as "Starchy" had a son, whom he named, out of pure ingenious and originality, Chip. Chip also had many children of his own (with his sister (named Potato after their proud race) because that's what they do in all those situations). They were not a very creative bunch, so named all of their children a combination of their names: Potato Chip. And evolution began from there...

Feeling

Do you ever get the feeling that's almost like guilt, and you feel bad about something and your not sure what? You carry that feeling with you and you can't enjoy anything... or maybe you do have fun, then you remember feeling bad, and your feelings crash? It's weird... I have it right now, for instance, and I'm trying everything to fill up that the corner of weird emptiness... I think that this time, mine has to do with the ever fast approaching mid-years... I feel a bit better after reviewing French...
Oh my gosh, mid-years! Help me, you 9th graders of this blog! What in the heckeroos are mid-years like?!?!?! GAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Piano Exam

I had my first ever exam today for grade 2. It was extremely boring driving there and back because we went out to Langley as there weren't any January exams on a saturday in Burnaby. Sadly, we all forgot there was a pro-d day yesterday, and I could have had my exam then without missing any school...
I was reeeeally nervous, and I messed up a bunch...
Also, the examiner was a very strange, over-enthusiastic person... he didn't stop smiling, and he enunciated every word as if I didn't speak English ( sta-cca-to, chro-ma-tic, et-cet-er-a).
And thats about all that happened today besides me hurrying to finish my science fair project.

Bonsoir, mademoiselles!

Google whack

omgomgogmgomgogmgomgogmgomgogmogmogmgomgomg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I found a googlewhack!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I got the insperation from reading the TTYL series by Lauren Myracle. In her book, they're only supposed to have 2 words... but I found one with three!!!! :) pretty good!
googlewhack= a search query in Google with only one result. (they have to be real words)
oh yeah!!!!!!!!!!! :)
I want to be able to post it without having our blog falling under there, mentioned as a search result.... :( how will I do this? If i just typed it... there would by two results instead of one! :(
hmmm.... let's do it this way...
1st word = callooh (you know, the "callooh, callay!" thing from the "Jabberwocky" poem)
2nd word= french word for cheese (the french word for cheese isn't the word! the word IS the word in french that translates into English as CHEESE)
3rd word (darn...i don't know how else to do this... I'll type it backwards!): edisloop
Alright! Try it out! it works right now, but God knows for how long!
yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D
You guys try to find more! try to stay within the 5 word limit!!!! :D

School Spirit.... We need it

I'm in the Mini program, and I joined the student council for the mini school, where i am just a regular member...there are at least ten other Gr.8's that I know who are in there.
I also joined the "normal" student council... the one for the entire school. All the times I've been there, I've noticed that it's 50% gr.12's. Something to do with graduating...? The rest are split evenly amongst the other grades... then you reach me. Yup. I AM THE ONLY GRADE 8 IN THE MAIN SCHOOL STUDENT COUNCIL.
Uh huh, the mini program consists of a total of 90 students every grade. The main school and the mini added together... well, that's a whole lot more gr. 8's!!!!!!! Yet, I, Amy Bao, a student in the mini, am the only gr.8 in the "normal student council. (Any students can join! ANY!) I find this quite flabbergasting, although I'm not complaining, since I won the grade 8 student rep. by default...

Alyssa

SHE IS ADORABLE! :D
She doesn't like to cry, sleeps nicely, and is quiet. ;)
She can already smile! :):):):):):) hard to capture those moments, though...
When she's really hungry, she'll try to eat anything that touches her face, so when my dad holds her with her head resting on his shoulder, she tries to latch on to his neck with her mouth... lol! My dad says that Alyssa is our little vampire because of this... :)
She was born with a full head of hair! :O Apparently, she looks exactly like me when I was a baby... :D According to my mom, she has my feet, my fingers, my forehead, my .... haha :D
Sometimes, when she is on my mom's lap, she starts to feel the need to get rid of body wastes... she purses her lips, and looks sideways at my mom, with her whole body stiff... my mom laughs every time Alyssa does this... Alyssa's expression would be very stern, as if she were scolding my mom about something. :D
Once, she was getting burped by my mom, and my mom and I were talking about how Alyssa looks just like me, Alyssa made a hilarious sound: "Ah?!?" Like she was crying out in disbelief.
My mom and I collapsed in laughter, trying to mimic the sound she had just made, while Alyssa herself lay, kicking out her feet and waving her arms in her own little dance.

Just Another Post..

Hmm, Okay so,
this is how my Winter holidays went [since they are baisically over]

- Got cool stuff for x-mas such as a scarf and 2 CD's [carrie underwood and daughtry] and also got a book light so now in the car I dont have to read by my cell phone light, yeah!! [along with a bookmark that has written on it: "Shhh Im trying to read." and its super cute :) and also got the ever so popular red olympic mittens that you see in almost every olympic advertisment nowadays. So it was a good christmas. :)

-Also I saw the first Alvin and the Chipmonks movie AGAIN cus it was just that cute. :) But didnt see the second one yet. AND I also found out that the guy that voices Alvin in the Chipmonks movie is also the MAC guy from the MAC vs PC comercials!!! Aint that cool?? :)

-Went to the polar bear swim, wanted to go in, but I didnt for a few reasons that I wont explain right now.. but anyway, my cousin did it, and a bunch of other crazies so it was cool to watch them anyway, :) And so then we all just hang out with the rest of the fam and got warm again cus it was sorta cold and really raining.

-Went to the Squamish library [cus its just that much better than Cameron], got out two books: The Awakening [which is the second of a series Im reading right now, its super good.] by Kelley Armstrong :) and also, a book called "impossible" by Nancy Werlin which I havent even started yet cus Im right now still reading "the awakening" but I know roughly what its about and it sounds okay, so I thought Id try it. :)

-New years was a fun day too, cus I banged around some pots and pans outside in the cold with my brothers, after watching on TV the "Dick Clarks New Years Rockin' Eve '10" just as we usually do. SO that was good, and how did you all spend your last days of 2009??

-Also, Im supposed to write a short story for English that has to follow a shit load of criteria and I havent even started it yet, and I had some ideas, but doesnt follow the criteria so I had to scratch it. As you can tell, Im really not happy about this, and I super HATE Mr.Turner. just cus he has no social life and all of his family are off farming in Alberta, so that he has nothing better to do than homework and shit like that, doesnt mean that we are like that too!!!!!!!!
I really hate Mr.Turner for this. And that will never change now.

But to leave on a happy note, it looks like the blog it making a comeback!!
Good job guys!!
And Ill try to come back and post more too,
So, Bye!!
