    YES. I understand that he was in a coma for awhile, but I don't see why that had to turn him into someone so unlikeable.

    Well, that's always interesting, Tally.

    I went to see Journey 2 the Mysterious Island today... It wasn't as good as the first, but it made me realize that 1) Josh Hutcherson is just beautiful and 2) I now am extremely jealous of Vanessa Hudgens.

    It also made me regret not getting a THG bookmark with Josh on it.

    And I don't want to tell you too much, because you said you wanted to read it!

    I'm plotting!

    ETA: Ari, I'm also super excited to write those, but I want to get an agent first... or self-publish... or whichever I'm going to do.

    Off With Her Head, from what I've plotted so far, is going to be AMAZING. The characters are keeping more secrets than Gossip Girl and people are dying left and right and there's kissing and partying and blood and pain and secret passageways and SO MUCH CHARACTER INTERACTION.

    LIKE SERIOUSLY.

    EMIL HAS TO DO SO MUCH SOCIALIZING THE POOR CHILD.

    Awwww, poor Emil. Is it the kind of kissing I'll enjoy reading? (YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.)

    UM...

    Well, no.

    There's another main character introduced in this novel Emil kisses A LOT.

    She's a pretty central character, she kind of acts like Luna Lovegood on crack, and she's the Cheshire Cat. She's my FAVORITE so so so much.

    It's like, I don't even know how these books are going to end anymore. SERIOUSLY.

    Going to the vet soon with the pups she's definitely getting better quicker than we all thought, and she's loving the attention.

    Huge thunderstorm this morning, but no snow day... sucks about living in the tropics.

    gonna plot the hell out of Sherlockettes today, I want to be ready to start writing this week (though I may not ACTUALLY start 'till the next, thanks to Hairspray rehearsals...)

    Just got back from Will's brothers, after the three hour drive this morning. Kind of tired but the two monster Java have me pretty damn awake right now. SO what does that mean? I'm going to try and write, although that probably means I'll procrastinate till class starts.
