Sherlock!

Hey guys,

I just realized that I have failed to share my new-found love for Sherlock with the rest of the world. It all started one winters morning  It started last week. My friend Zoe is constantly talking about how great Sherlock and how great Benedict Cumberbatch is in it. I always ignored her and said that he sucks. But last week (I can't remember when) the first episode of Sherlock season one was showing on TV, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I have never looked back since then. I have only watched season one, but it is really good. I always thought that it was the really old, black and white Sherlock Holmes episodes but it's really modern, he even texts. I found that very surprising.

But It's soo weird how Sherlock episodes go on for more an hour and a half each. No wonder they only have three episodes per season.

Anyway, I've got another quote and picture for you all,

Blah.

Hey guys,

Today was pretty uneventful. I started the day (30th) by sleeping at 4am in the morning.
For some reason I always fight to stay awake but I almost always regret it in the morning when my family tries to wake me up before 12pm.

After I woke up, I started my daily routine. Eat, watch television, eat, go on the laptop, eat, eat, eat, watch Sherlock, failed attempts to plan out my day and do school work, watch more Tv. Speaking of watch Tv, they were showing Horrid Henry, E.T, Scooby Doo 2, Ice Age etc etc. How come they weren't showing that many movie around Christmas?

Hey, something interesting that happened yesterday was that I chatted to an old friend of mine cose friend from my odschool for about four hours, which is a new record for me. Just saying.

Oh, and the quote below is soo me.

Anyway, I've got another quote and picture for you all,

Feast

Hey guys,

Happy Holidays! Hope your're all having a good time- I am. Don't you love the SALES?! I've literally been shopping 'til I drop. Who doesn't love new shtuff? Anywhoo, something very strange is going on. For some reason, there are soo many movies showing today e.g. Final Destination, Abduction, Spiderman iii, I am number 4, The Titanic, Madagascar 3, The Bourne Supremacy etc etc.

Oh, and I've recently started watching Sherlock. The one with Benedict Cumberbatch, and by recently, I mean two days.

Anywhoo, I've been eating soo much. I would have expected to gain a few pounds, but thank God for my fast metabolism because I haven't- yet. Maybe it's because I'm a vegetarian, I donno, because as far as I'm concerned, there aren't as many carbs in salads as there are in stuffing stuffed turkeys (that made sence right?).

Neighbors Movie

Hey guys,

I'm pretty sure I've already posted about this movie already, but Neighbors is a movie coming out next year (2014) and the trailer looks REALLY GOOD. but by REALLY GOOD, I don't mean that it's on the same level as Fast and Furious or Avatar or something. I mean that, for a movie itself, it looks pretty interesting. Some actors you may know and like that are in this movie are  Seth RogenRose Byrne and Zac Efron.

Basically, after watching the trailer, the movie is about a couple who have children. One day this frat house movies in next door to them. The frat house throws this wild party and instead of them going over and telling them to sssshhhhhhhh they call the cops...therefore starting an all out war.
This is just a rough, but from the trailer, I would guesstimate that the movie could be a 3 star.

Here's the Youtube link to the trailer, I hope you enjoy it!

Doctor Who!!

Hey guys,

Today, most people were thinking/talking about Christmas and Santa etc. But I on the other hand, was thinking about Doctor Who: The Time of the Doctor. I think it really sucks that Matt Smith is gone :(
I hope this new Doctor can live up to Matt Smith and David Tenant because if he doesn't I have a feeling that some of the DW fans are going to go crazy.

The thing is, I don't even enjoy watching Doctor Who that much -I only started to watch it again because of Matt Smith and David Tenant.

WARNING: Not to be read by children

Hey guys

People really need to stop asking me "are you excited about Santa?" I mean, how old do you think I am?what the hell? I almost always reply saying:

Errm... No? First of all- he doesn't exist.
Secondly, I don't enjoy the thought of creepy old man watching me all year round, watching me as I sleep or breaking into my house at night because the last time I checked, breaking and entering was illegal.

Batman

Hey guys,

Is it just me, or is Batman the male version of Cat-woman?

In this post, I was supposed to be rambling on and on about the similarities between Batman and Cat Woman- but when I Googled  'Batman and Cat Woman' all of the photos that popped up were of them together, kissing and hugging... I bet all the comic book enthusiasts think that this question is really stupid.. but are they married or something?

Oh, and this link is all about Batman VS. Superman and what other Celebs think. You're welcome. FYI- team Superman all the way.

Never underestimate a Secret Santa Gift

Hey guys,

Never underestimate a Secret Santa Gift. A few years ago (2011) I received a secret Santa present. I opened it to reveal a super-flat pencil case and I was really disappointed (I tried not to show it). I was thinking "...what the hell? what is this?!" But a few months later, I went to see WWE RAW live on their first tour to The UAE with my BFF and we needed something to store our tickets in and it turns out that the pencil case was the perfect size to keep the tickets, our money and photos of the superstars. I still don't know who gave it to me :( I would have said thanks. It may sound really small and you might be thinking "you could have kept your tickets anywhere" but I had a really small bag and it fit perfectly..soo without me even knowing- that gift was exactly what I needed.

Anyway, I've got another quote and picture for you all,

Contagion

Hey guys,

On Friday (the last day of school), our biology teacher let us watch this movie called Contagion (I think that's how you spell it). Anywhoo, the movie is about this deadly disease that spreads from china. It all started when..wait... Should I tell you what happens?.. yeah, why not. It's not worth watching and, to be honest, it really wasn't that great.

It all started when bat flew into a farm where they fed the pigs and other farm animals. The bat flew off, but left droppings on the ground, which a pig thought was food and ate it. Then the farmer sold that pig to a chef, who put his hand in the pigs mouth whilst preparing it. The chef was then called to greet this woman (a client I think) to the restaurant. The chef shook the lady's hand- and she eventually traveled back to the US and that's how the disease started to spread.

Here's a link to the trailer for those of you who want to watch it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4sYSyuuLk5g

Ever since I watched this movie, I've been freaked out because I always take the bus and there are really gross people who think that it is okay to sneeze and then touch everything in the bus. So now I carry around a bottle of hand sanitizer.

Last weeks of school

Hey guys,

I love the last days of school before school comes to an end...

... except for the amazingly kind mentally deranged teachers who think saying "holiday homework is good for you" is a valid explanation. Grinchs.

Anywhoo, my last week of school was pretty special. We had the (apparently) traditional Christmas Pantomime (I will write a post about it if I can gather the concentration), presents from my friends (which I will also post about), half day of school etc.

We had a Raffle on the last day of school. How it works  is, during each term of school, you get awarded something called credits from every subject if you are good and there is another raffle for attendance.

I kept on repeating "let it be in 10 green, let it be in 10 green" (which is my form group).
Turns out that there were two winners from 10 green. But I one of the students who won any of the prizes, although, two of my friends did.

Christmas Presents

Hey guys,

Is it just me, or do teens really like watching movies and reading books about other teenagers?
I don't blame them though. Sometimes you can relate to the situation or its just darn-right funny.

Anywhoo, sorry that's not what this post was supposed to be about. Today my one of my friends brought me a Christmas Present! It is quite small, but really cool. I'm pretty sure (if your awesome and you read my blog on a regular basis) you already know that I really like the Thor/ Avengers movies and that I nearly always talk about the bus.. Awkward if you don't- but yeah, she bought me a Thor bus pass wallet. It says- and I quote:

"Whosoever holds this wallet, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of... The Mighty THOR"

Pretty cool right?

P.s.. <<<<<<<<<<I soo wish this picture was the cover of the movie. Ah- (Wait for it)- Mazing!

Christmas Jumpers

Hey guys,

Today was Christmas Jumper Day at school - although I'm pretty sure that the official day was sometime last week. I wore the green jumper shown below - but I wasn't alone. More than ten other people were wearing this jumper, my friends started a game and we were trying to count the amount of people wearing it. 11. That's what happens when you purchase things from a common store.



Anywhoo, although I'm pretty sure that you know this already.... NEVER TRUST SCHOOL LUNCHES!! OMG, We had a Christmas lunch today and it looked average, but half of it tasted discussing. We had Cranberry sauce, Brussels sprouts, Potatoes etc.Whilst the other kids had turkey and whatnot (did I use that right?)  I was eating some dodgy mush.

Ice skating Sunday

Hey guys,

Short and sweet.

Today I went Ice skating with a few (16) new friends. It was pretty cool, except the guys kept on trying to make us fall down- actually trying is the wrong thing to say. I. F.E.L.L. I could hardly stay upright by myself, yet alone be chased by a group of almost-pro ice skaters.
It was an outdoor rink and it was raining, so you can imagine how wet I got. Grrr, 'payback is going to be sweet' I kept on telling myself, but every time I tried to reach one of them, I ended up almost falling face first and looking like I was having a total spaz attack.

After we skated for and hour, we wen't out (all still soaking wet/drenched) to a Chinese restaurant and ate until we could eat no more.

Saturday- Uncles 60th B-day Parttaay and shopping

Hey guys,

On Saturday I went out shopping with my mum. It was amazing! I bought some really cool stuff, but I can't be bothered to share all of that with you.Then we went to Subway and split a foot-long veggie sandwich- which is totally better than any other sandwich in subway.

Anywho, let me get to the main topic, which  (I'm guessing) is the only reason you started reading this post. After we came back from shopping, we (four of us) wen't to my uncles house to celebrate his 60th birthday. It was soo cool because I hadn't seen a lot of my cousins in a long time, and almost everyone was there. Although the party was cool, the best moment of the day was on the car journey back home. My dad, as nice as he is, decided to drop two of my aunts back to their house. Bear in mind our car has five seats, and now there are six of us. I was the slimmest person in the car so I had to sit on both my sister and my aunts lap. The most uncomfortable position I have ever been in, including the time I had to fold up like a pretzel so my sisters' moving boxes could fit in the car.

Anywhoo back to the story, on the drive back, my aunt was telling me that I should try out for modeling and she knows this agency. And I know that she's not kidding around because she said the same thing to my cousin and she's doing well.

Anyway, I've got another quote and picture for you all,
Hmm...HMM...

I've always seen modeling as a stepping stone.

Lamb heart

Hey guys,

On Friday, in biology, we got to dissect a Lambs' heart. Apart from the blood and the retched smell, it was pretty cool. We had to cut it in half and then use tweezers to pick up veins and stuff, it was pretty gruesome. I am actually really proud of myself because whilst most of the other girls were screaming and being uber-dramatic, I was relaxed and actually quite fascinated. I mean, how often do you get to say 'I've dissected a Lambs' heart'?

This is pretty much what id looked like

Teenage girls- locker room talk

Hey guys,

Sometimes it's so annoying being a teenage girl!! OMFG! Today after p.e. we were in the locker rooms changing and all I could hear was :

  • 'I'm so fat'
  • 'I'm on a diet' 
  • 'my mums slimmer than me' 
  • 'I weigh...' 
  • 'look at my belly'
I was soo sick of listening to the pointless chatter. Come onn! I mean, if you are going on a diet or start working out, there's no reason to tell the whole world- just do it and let people see the difference. I know it's hard, trust me. Every time I start working out, I stop (after 2 minutes) and pig out. But that's just me. My opinion, take it or leave it.

Name change

Hey guys,

Today was pretty uneventful, except I learnt how to play a card game called speed -well, I learnt how to play it yesterday. Speaking of yesterday, my Computer Science teacher is sooo smart- NOT! He hasn't been in school for six weeks! I don't know why and I kinda feel sorry for him because he might be sick or something but COME ON!!! Does he want us to fail or something?! We only have two computer science lessons in a week.... shouldn't new teachers be working their butts off instead of taking time off?

Anywhoo, I was planning on changing my blogger name from Newbie to something else, something different, but I thought about it, and I was like 'This is what I started with and this is what I'm sticking with!' so... yeah. Just a thought...

Hey guys,

This is me being a rebel (not really, I asked first) and posting this from school. Shows how much I'm bored. And I think it's soo cool that they unblocked blogger.

Anywhoo if I'm remembering correctly (probably not) the last time I updated my pet peeves list was last month. That was clearly too long ago because I get annoyed even quicker now.

The new and improved pet peeves list is on its way!!


  • Sneezing in public
  • Coughing in public
  • Pigeons
  • Being falsely accused
  • (Occasionally) Rain
  • Speaking with your mouth full
  • Chewing gum with your mouth open
  • Excess chewing noises
  • chewing gum
  • seagulls
  • nail biting
  • snoring
  • the tapping of fingers on the table
  • cats and meowing
  • stains
  • cheesy romance novels/movies/songs etc
As you can see I have added onto my list and not started a completely new one

P.s. Counting down the days to 2014!!

Forget what they say... I'm right

Hey guys,

I saw in a newspaper (Yes, I'm young...aaaannnnddd I read a newspaper. Deal with it!) a list of the top ten most attractive men. It wrote, and I quote:

  1. Henry Cavill
  2. Robert Pattinson
  3. Liam Hemsworth
  4. Tom Hiddleston
  5. Benedict Cumberbatch
  6. Harry Styles
  7. Chris Hemsworth
  8. Idris Elba
  9. Jamie Campbell Bower
  10. Justin bieber
As you can See, Matt Smith is not in the top ten... He is number 19. How could Matt Smith be number 19?? what the FLIP were they thinking?!!! The men highlighted in red are the people I don't think deserve to be in the top ten- but this is just my opinion. I don't wan't beliebers threatening me or twilight fans or whatever. MY Opinion- Deal with it!

This is the realistic list
  1. ???????
  2. Drew van acker
  3. Chris hemsworth
  4. Matt smith
  5. Drew van acker
  6. Liam hemsworth
  7. Nolan funk

Thor book

Hey guys,

I have good news and I've got bad news- do you want to know the good news or the bad news first? The bad news is that I'm SOO frustrated that I still haven't watched Thor 2 yet! But the good news is that my school library ordered the book about the movie specially for me. It's both a spoiler alert and a sneak peak because I really want to know what happens in the movie, but at the same time I don't want to ruin the experience. What to do, what to do....

I hope I can buy the DVD when it eventually comes out because I REALLY can't be bothered to drag myself out of my house to go to the movies.

Oh! and the book is really cool! It photos from the movie inside it of Thor, Loki and those creepy aliens. I'm not sure if I recommend you buy it though because it is disappointingly slim. When I heard that there was a book, I thought it was going to be bigger than the breaking dawn or Harry Potter book, but it isn't. It's super-thin.
