This Dr Who book is brilliant. It is written by James Swallow, and it is one of my favorite books. I received from Atheena as a birthday present, and I had to force myself to drag it out. If you are a fan of Dr Who, you should definitely try it.

It is a brilliant western/alien mixture, and it almost takes place in texas. Kind of almost. A couple of states up, Colorado. I think that it everybody should read it, but I don't know if anybody who doesn't love Dr Who would love it. 

Shortest Saddest Short Story

Hemingway wrote the shortest short story, in six words:

For Sale, Baby shoes, never used.

Can you figure out what it means? Here is a hint: It Is Extremely Sad.

Deep Blue Something

As I write this I am as well watching a documentary on the ocean. my mother and father are watching it too. It is gorgeous, everything is so amazing. It amazes me, every single defense mechanism and warning device, every bit of God's work perfect and beautiful.

Soon, I am going to watch an episode or two of Doctor Who, and then I'm going to read some, I'm thinking of restarting THE DARK IS RISING books by Susan Cooper, I am currently reading the last one, but I have not read it in so long I am going to start the entire series over.

Mulchy was just drinking some water, and now he has gone into his igloo. He is looking for something to eat, as always. He looks kind of sleepy. Julius is probably asleep, I'm not sure.

And on that note, Anna Lowery, signing off.

Young Joan

THis book about St Joan of Arc's childhood is quite the page-turner. Written by Barbara Dana, this book is amazing. You should try it! I wasn't eager to for a while, but once I got into it, I loved it.

Joan starts out as a twelve-year-old, and in the end is nineteen. I especially like the bits with animals and such. It is a splendid story, one of the best Saint stories I have read.

Happy New Year!

So it's 2011, 2010 is gone. Too bad, I liked that number. But 2011 is good enough.

I've just realized, I have had my blog for almost exactly a year. My goal is to write a lot more. and finish my book. Excited about that one. Hopefully, I'll get to 150 entries by 2012.

My birthday is in 15 days, YAY! I'm going to have a Dr Who birthday party, and I need to start planning big time!

Last night when we got home from Ruidoso at about 11:00 pm, I found a pleasant surprise, my Dr Who had come in the mail! I now own series 2 and 4! Yay!

On Friday, everybody went skiing except for Sara and I. We took the long walk to Farley's, to find that it was closed. We went to Pizza Hut instead, and luckily it was just right across the street.

Happy new year!
