No one reads this, right?
I would just do it on Myspace, but there's two problems with that: I forgot my password and I can't remember whether you can blag on there. It's probably just for posting pictures and adding friends.

Anyway, do not read the following if you have not read the Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins and are planning to read it. If this does not apply to you, go right ahead.

I've reading Hunger Games, and I'm halfway through Catching Fire.
It's a good book. Very suspenseful and interesting, with plot twists popping up everywhere. Things get scary occasionally, what with the Capitol hating on Katniss because of the berries stunt. :/.

For those who don't know, in the first book, Katniss plays in the Hunger Games where 24 people from 12 different districts fight to the death to determine one winner. It's like Survivor but instead of voting people out, the contestants try to kill each other.

It was very scary reading about Katniss and Peeta playing in the Hunger Games, because at any moment, they could die, from starvation, dehydration, being killed, etc etc.
But Katniss (and Peeta, because they were from the same district) were crowned winners, and I breathed a sigh of relief, knowing that Katniss and Peeta were safe and back at home in District 12, with plenty of money.

BUT NO. The author made an extra two books, Catching Fire and Mockingjay, which means Katniss is not safe from harm and the government people are angry with her, etc etc, read the book for more info.

Anyhoo, the next year means another game of Hunger Games. Which means 24 brand new contestants, blah blah blah, and the whole country watches.

But things change! Because it's the SEVENTY FIFTH Hunger Games which is some SPECIAL ANNIVERSARY of some crap that happened YEARS AGO, the rules change!
For this Hunger Games, the contestants are picked from the pool of existing winners from each district. One male. One female. There's only two male winners in District 12 and one female. Katniss.

So, this means: Katniss has to play in ANOTHER Hunger Games. Another one. How dare they? How can Katniss survive ANOTHER Hunger Games? This time, it will be played with other winners of the game, meaning every single contestant will have won before. Meaning every contestant will know what they have to do to win. Meaning Katniss has less hope of succeeding than she did the first time. :(

This is stupid. It's like suicide yet you have no choice, because if your name gets picked out, you HAVE to play in the Hunger Games. Peeta might have to play too, considering he is one of the victors. All because of some stupid people who rebelled against the government years ago. Obviously, if you want to rebel, you aren't going to succeed unless you have some flawless plan that is very hard to make. And if you DON'T succeed, then you face a life WORSE than what you had before.

It's so frustrating. I just hope Katniss can win AGAIN and everything will go back to normal.
Peeta and Katniss can get married, have some epic children named after some epically cool plants, and live happily ever after. Sadly, I don't think this will be the case. Sadly, I think it will end up like Twilight with Katniss producing some mutant baby spawn that the Capitol think will grow up into a monster, so all the Capitol people and their army go down to District 12 where they all stand around discussing the matter. And, of course, on Katniss' side, there will all her friends plus a series of wolves that decided to rock up.


And that's the end of the rant. Stay tuned for next week: when Laura finishes the whole Hunger Games trilogy and finds out her predictions were true. Marvelous.

(I totally had to get that off my chest. This rant is pretty crazy yet hopefully gets to Suzanne Collins so that she knows her books suck. Or, at least, some part of them.)


So happy right now! (it didn't work on Tumblr.)

This is my cute guy. He is from a Glee episode (the Britney Spears one) and omg.

In the gif above, Cute Guy is in the background. Ahhh. /eye candy.

And here he is, being his awesome self.
WHY IS RACHEL GAZING AT FINN? THERE IS GUY RIGHT NEAR YOU, RACHEL, HE IS BETTER THAN FINN! Open your mind, and trust me, your brain won't be falling out BECAUSETHERE IS NO BRAIN!!! :(.

Whatever. :P.

Writer's Block: Orlando lives again!

If you could become one person--alive,dead or fictional--for one month, who would it be, and why?

I would like to be Julia Gillard.
It would be awesome to be PM for a month, and I could make some awesome promises that people would be interested in so they can vote for me. :).

For starters, I'd apologise to KRudd and take the knife out of his back. I'm sorry, KRudd, and I love you. I don't know what went through me when I threw the knife. I know you meant well, with your stupid mining tax and the mess you made. I know you didn't mean to. And... and.... I love you. Let's ditch my bf and your wifey and kids, let's elope! Run away, get married, and start a new life in Altona. We'll be co-PMs, team Ruddy and JuGi. :).

Then, I'd change footy teams to Collingwood. Obviously, if I want to be at the top of the world, I can't do that without standing on the top rung on the ladder. Hence, go the Pies, and go Daisy Thomas!

Now, Ruddy and me will decide to legalise gay marriage. Someone's got to do it, and Tony Abbott doesn't seem the likely candidate. But the homosexuals can only get married and have the same rights as any heterosexual couple. Lesbian couples can't go using taxpayer money on IVF just because they don't like having sex with guys. What do they think, that money grows on trees? WHAT EVEN. I don't really care if you want a baby or not, IVF is not the way to do it. It's costly and we could be spending the money on more important things. Like climate change, for example. I'm just saying. (I don't even support IVF for heterosexual couples either. idk. I don't support cosmetic surgery either, mainly because people spend too much money on that and not other important things. whatever).

Anyway, moving on (and forward). I'd like the asylum seekers to come into the country. The government has stacks of money, so we can organise for these refugees to stay in a country-like town, in houses (but the houses won't be too crowded and they won't be like a prison, no way). And most of the asylum seekers in each house can go out and get little jobs (earning little wages that pay for food) and some asylum seekers in the house can go to school to learn English and they can be the ones who buy the food (as they can read the packets of food in the supermarket). I've thought this all out to a tee. It'll be like in the book called Town by James Roy. :).

And that's all I can think of now. Let's move Australia forward, not backwards. Upwards, not forwards. And forever twirling, twirling, twirling toward freedom. Thank you and vote 1 for Team Ruddy and JuGi.

Writer's Block: Two Truths and a Lie

Post two truths and a lie about yourself as an answer to Writer's Block. Have people guess which is the lie in the comments.
  1. I really likes Dale Thomas.
  2. I reckon the Geelong team are made of awesomeness and I love them all so much and I'll marry them all.
  3. My favourite song is What's A Doodle Doo.

Writer's Block: Fantasy Sports

Imagine you manage a coven of baseball-playing vampires. The Cullen family is really strong this year and you want to bring in a ringer. Which currently active MLB baseball player do you sire?
I don't know any baseball players but can I choose Dale Thomas? He's pretty awesome. :)

Writer's Block: Crystal Ball

All of August stretches before us today—what is your prediction for this month's weirdest or most unexpected news story?
I predict that Michael Jackson will rise from the dead and everyone will be like, "OMIGOD, IT'S JESUS~!" Because, y'know, Jesus would spread a message like, "It doesn't matter if you're black or white."

LOL, LiveJournal ~somehow~ knew I was in Melbourne, Australia. HOW, LJ, HOWWWWWW???


Writer's Block: Childish Pleasures

Name something you love but feel like you should have grown out of by now.

Dale Thomas.
The Simpsons.
Short Stack. (I've only just jumped on the bandwagon, kk).

Writer's Block: Party Time

What was the last great party you attended?
Last Friday night.
I'm not invited to many parties so basically every party I go to is considered "great".
Anyway, it was friend's party. She totally turned 18 on Saturday. So the majority of the people there stayed until midnight. Because we wanted to wish her 'happy birthday' on her actual birthday. :)

And yeah. It was fun. There was a whole bowl of these triangle pastry things. So I totally ate, like, 50 of them. #pig

Writer's Block: I Can Relate

What fictional character do you most identify with?
I have a few.
  1. Courtney from Loathing Lola. The similarities are just obvious, okay? Well, we aren't really similar; I just want to be like her. idk.
  2. Midge from The Not Quite Perfect Boyfriend. We are both good at spelling and worry about the future where we'll be living in a caravan with seven cats, I kid you not. Oh and we both have the same perceptions of a "dream guy" who is English and hot. The only difference between me and Midge is that she chose the World Of Warcraft loser and not the hot, English guy.
  3. Chi-Mo (Okay, okay, his real name is Thomas but let me have my fun) from King Dork. The obvious similarity: we are both dorks. The difference: he is a boy and I am a girl (can I make it any more obvious?).
  4. Hattie from Town. We both like black-and-white subjects at school. Like, Chemistry and Maths and Physics and other awesomely cool subjects. (I don't think she does Accounting so that's a fail on her behalf).
  5. Jack Watts. Okay, he's not fictional but while we are on the topic of naming all my twins, let's name good ol' Jackie Boy. (That's my nickname for the cute lil angel so stfu).
  7. Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter series. We are both living in our own worlds, dreaming of fantasy places while looking like a complete n00b.
I probably have forgotten some but oh well. :)
