Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to introduce to you ‘THE MOST SPOILED DOG IN THE WORLD!’ otherwise known as my grandparents new puppy, Toby.
World meet Toby | Toby meet the world.
It’s currently 14:37 on a Wednesday and I’m sitting in a stuffy classroom listening to the mother of all bloggers! (She’s amazing.) But even with her awesomeness radiating onto me and my classmates in waves, I can’t help myself pining for the sun.
Well, the presentation was a success! So, even though I winged the whole thing, and I basically talked shit for the full 7 mins I was up there, my teacher seemed to enjoy it.
WINNING AT LIFE!
I think it’s safe to say that I’m a little nervous, everyone will be able to see my work over the past 7 weeks and that scares me. But, I’m gonna power through and just impress my classmates with my confidence.
……….. HELLO :D I’ve just realised that you can all read this from the moniter in front of you!
This doesn’t really fit in with the rest of my blog but………………………………
Well it’s official . I have NO MONEY . I used whatever loose scrap I had to top up my Oyster Card this morning . And even that’s not going to last me for the next two weeks . I think it’s safe to say ………. “I’M SCREWED!”
I don’t even think a husky dog saying ‘I love you’ is going to make this better…..
Something to make anybodies day better: Mishka - I love youuuuuuuu

WICKED - Review
The award-winning prequel to the classic ‘Wizard of Oz’ has been gracing the stage across the world for the past 9 years and it’s due to make its appearance on the big screen.
I’ve just finished reading the book that created such a media storm over the past decade and unlike most books I’ve read … I loved it.
The book follows the life of Elphaba Thropp, the ‘Thropp Third Descending’ (which means she should become the new Governor of Munchkinland) and later becomes known as the ominous ‘Wicked Witch of the West’. As a keen ‘Animal’ rights defender and green skinned ‘Witch’ she’s condemned by the world. A couple of twists here and some turns there and she becomes painted as an evil broom flying, possessed monkey handler with a laugh that could make any mans testicles retract back into themselves. Oh, and she’s desperate for her sisters magical shoes too.
I’m a huge fan of the franchise. I’ve seen the musical in the West End so many times I could probably quote the whole play to you if you wanted:
“….Now wait just a Clock-Tick. I know it’s hard for that blissful blonde brain of yours to comprehend that someone like could choose someone like me. But it’s happened, it’s real and you can wave that ridiculous wand all you want. He doesn’t belong to you, he never loved you, he loves me ….”
And even though I know the play inside out this book was definitely surprising. There was no rivalry between the main characters, no fighting over the irresistible prince or Wizard out to get Elphaba. What there is, is a smart, confident and well-spoken girl who’s not afraid to stand up for herself. There’s passionate love between two people that seem to never get along. And there’s crushing grief over the loss of that loved one because of something you’ve done.
The novel is a brilliant theory to history behind the story of the Wicked Witch of the West. She’s different, there’s reason behind the madness of her character. It will leave the reader thinking back to the movie and thinking …… ‘Was she really that bad? Or, was it all propaganda?’
In actuality, it’s an amazing look into the 21st Century. Does our world believe what we’re told by our leaders? Or do we stand up and fight?
Over all it’s moving, mind-blowing and magical …….. TEEHEE
So, finally the second season of PLL is over and though I’m distraught at the thought of it, I’m angry.
I’m an avid follower of the series, I’ve been watching it for the past 2 and a half years waiting for the big reveal of ‘-A’. So when the big spoiler at the end of the episode, telling the audience that ‘-A’ was really Mona, sucked.
It was, personally, such an obvious move on the part of the writers that I felt betrayed by the lack of imagination. Audience members were specifically told at the start of the series that the story would not be the same as the books written by Sara Shepard.
The finale followed the books so closely in the revealing moments it was like reading them again. Mona was revealed as ‘-A’ and then got pushed off a cliff by Spencer. To those who’ve read the novels, we all know this is how the fourth book ends.
However, ‘-A’ was not actually revealed in the episode. I know that Mona confessed to the crimes, but she’s not ‘-A’ …….. apparently. ‘The A Team’, as it’s named, still lives on despite the loss of probably the craziest person to walk the earth.
So in the end, even if I’m disappointed with the ending, I’m still hooked. I’ve still so many questions swirling around in my head.
* Who is the ‘Black Swan’?
* Who’s in ‘The A Team’?
* Who was in the red coat?
* Is Maya really dead? / Who killed Maya?
* Who’s Dr. Sullivan’s son?
* What will happen with the liars relationships?
* And ……………….. When the hell is it going to be back on our screens?!?!?!
