Guess what? I BEAT JAKE AT SPARRING. Ha ha. 
We got a new dishwasher, and so, when Dad put all the cardboard left-overs out for the recyclable truck, Jake and I went and were going to spar--and we found a bunch of cardboard (really thick, hard cardboard) thingamijigs that were sort of--well, if you looked at the end, it was shaped like this: >   And so they were a little hard to handle. But Jake and I sparred with those, and the sparring match lasted FOREVER. Ha. So Jake lost... partly because we hit so hard and his eventually split in half. So I won that match. We began another, but it lasted longer than the first (and we used different cardboard things, because Jake's was broken and mine was close to being broken) That match ended in a draw--nobody won.


LOTR.
Ok... better start at the first. A long time ago, in a land far, far away... Yes, it was far away. China, in fact. So my Dad bought Jake a pack of extended LOTR movies. All extended. Except, of course, when they watched 'em, Return of the King was *not* Extended Edition. So that was too bad. I wasn't allowed to watch LOTR back then, so it didn't matter much to me... I was too young, LOL.
So! Up to date. Jake found a Return of the King extended Edition with two extra CDs of Appendixes! It was formerly thirty two dollars, but it was on sale for twelve! Unfortunately, it went up to sixteen before Jake bought it. But now we have it! And we were watching some of the Appendixes, and it was so strange! Frodo more grown up (heh, real name is Elijah)! And the only actor who didn't seem to have changed was good old Pippin... Even his accent was the same, and it was hilarious seeing him! Sam's accent was faked... and Gandalf! Oh, my. The only thing that was the same about him was his NOSE! 'Twas strange. We saw how they did their sets and such... even for the huge cities! :D So it was quite interesting. But there's much more... we only saw a small portion of whats on ONE CD, so I can't wait to see the rest! 



AND MY OTHER NEWS!!! No matter if you don't believe me--*I* almost don't believe it myself!! But you shall see. Bah, I've got to stop babbling and tell you already!! Okay, look below... and no sneak peeking!

I FINISHED MY NOVEL!!! 


And so now we party. :D


"I sat there in front of the computer, typing fervently. It was dark outside, and I had been working for hours on end while my family did who knows what somewhere else... and then it hit me, clear as a slap in the face, and I did, in fact, slap my face. I was finished. Honest to goodnessly finished. I was free... and yet sad. But it was a series book! So I would have another. And another. And maybe even another. 
And so I say now--farewell for a time. I'm off to party."

Naw, I'll only be gone... oh, lets just say less than a few seconds.



SEE? I'm back! Or not. I guess this right here is sort of a party. 


I AM DONE!! *rants* DONE!! HA HA!! 


Ok. I'm done. Guess my post was a little boring, eh? Ah, but I cannot stay... to quote what I said on the UG, "I have to go meet a rabbit. I think he means to drown me."
