Rest in Awesome crazycrayon

Today is a sad day. Today Esther Earl died.

I didn't personally know Esther, I only knew of her through vlogbrothers and effyeahnerdfighters. There was really only one time where our lives intersected. I decided to check out her tumblr one day and I looked at a video she had up of David Tennant and John Barrowman kissing. That video made me very, very happy. I saw other stuff but that's the only thing I remember.

Someone on Twitter thought we should dedicate today to doing awesome things for Esther. I decided to take it on step further, to keep doing awesome things all my life., because Esther made the world suck less (I didn't say that @evilmj did).

My short career as a half thief

So I'm tired and I didn't do much today so you'll be getting that nice long post later but I do have story to tell you now.

In the grocery store this lonely little stall labelled personal care. The important thing to remember here is that this stall almost never has someone there and all the merchendise is locked cabinets. Yesterday my mom sent me into the store to buy batteries. Guess where they were. The cabinets aren't fitted shut, there's about an inch wide space between them, and you can see the lock. First I tried twiddling the lock (proving that I am a poor locksmith) then I tried fitting my hand through. I pulled the door, the lock slipped a bit and I was able to fit more of my arm in. Then I changed my mind, got the rest of the stuff I needed and asked the cashier who got someone to open it for me. Still I know if this writing thing doesn't work out...

I am a Liar

I know, I come back, I promise to blog and then I don't. I am a liar and I don't even have the book to give you as an ironic example. But I promise I am back now. And who knows, I might just blog for all the days I missed. (But probably not).

I'm writing this blog in the eleventh hour again as per tradition (no you're not, again you lie! When does this web of deceit end!) and I'm juts going to ramble again.

I spent a lot of time looking at flat irons on It's a good site and it come with a lot of tips on how to care for your hair and flat iron and stuff.

Apparently Youtube think whenever I pause something I really mean for them to play whlile I'm trying to do something else.

It rained.

And that's all I can really think of right now. I'm tired cuz I fell asleep at 6 a.m. and I should be going to bed soon to aviod a repeat. Until next time.

Panicked rambling

I have an excuse for why I didn't blog yesterday and why you are getting this mess today. I am sick and I will be better and coherent tomorrow but for now I am a mess.

So I finished my library books yesterday.

My thoughts:

Naughts and Crosses: Romeo and Juliet a'int got nothing on them. Also really makes you think.

The Bromeliad Trilogy: Excellent and nice metaphor Pterry.

Dancing in Red Shoes will kill you. All right but could have been better. Again nice metaphor.

Midnighters 3: Blue Noon: Knowing the ending in advance does not make it any less sad.

Also there's a YA battle royale going on and it's very good. Go here to vote on your favourites. Also because of this I learnt how awesome Diane Peterfreund really is.

You know that one game on your phone that never gets played? You don't want to play it but one day, you're really bored and you need something to do and you promise yourself you're only going to play one game? Yeah me too.

Hi my name's Nushi-ke and I'm addicted to Tetris. My highscore on Tetris is 124100. That is way too high. Sometimes when I can't sleep I play Tetris. The other night I left my phone downstairs an I acknowledged this and I still felt for it. I have a problem.

Also Zemanta is telling me that there is a Tetris world champion. I feel for you dude.

And that's it I really did not have all that much to say. Before I go here's a video of what it would be like to play Tetris with Xbox Kinnect:

There's only a link for now because blogger keeps  @^#$!&@ing my (@*#^ up.

Oh yeah and it rained tonight. I like ti when it rains at night, the way the clouds are light up, and the flasshes of lighting that come out of nowhere and how the trees look against the sky. Too bad it's over now.


P.S. Derek Landy is interviewing Laura, who was the inspiration for Valkyrie Cain on his blog. Aloso I add alot of postscripts don't I?

Animal Invaders

Animals like to invade my house. Our gate has huge holes in the sides, big enough for a small or Medium sixed pet to get through, and our neighbours pets like to visit my house. Once I went outside and I heard this tinkling so I (brilliantly) decided to stay outside and and try to figure out what it was. 10 seconds later my neighbours dog comes running around the corner like all hell's after him. I stayed inside after that.

Cats come in too. Last night I heard this "Ullr-AH, Ullrrr-AH!" noise coming from outside. I went to see if my mom heard it too.

"It's a cat," she said.

"That's not a cat," I replied, "That is a DEMON!

My Zemanta assistant keeps telling me something about attacks and fires. I think it knows about the mysterious explosions coming from outside and the dry lightning.

Before I go I would like to point out that this is the first time  that I am not finishing this blog with minutes to spare. The fact that I knew this so I procrastinated on it all day is irrelevant.

Treasures in Library books

Once again I am rushing to finish this post in the eleventh hour. I need to work on this, but I know think I'm starting to understand the saying (shut up, I've only heard it Twice before, in Doctor Who and that TV show about the doctor and the FBI agent)

So I saw Despicable Me and everything that could be in 3D came straight for my head. It was all right. I liked the minions.

So I told you about the books I was reading, "Robot Dreams", and in it, in the story "Ugly Little Boy", I found a playing card, the Ace of Hearts. It is not in the original place any longer as I kind of forgot that if I'm not holding the part when I hold the book up, it will fall put, but it is in the same story.

This is not the first thing I've found inside a library book. Mainly I find bookmarks but once I found an apple shaped Post-it note. I won't say which book but I used it to tell successive readers how horrible the book was. Since it was in Chapter 22 however I don't think it had much effect.

So do you guys have any ideas on what I should do with the Ace? I'm probably going to leave it in but do you guys have any ideas what kind of message I could give to future readers? And if you want me to steal it why?

Later I'll make a blog about me decoding the card.


P.S. My Zemanta Assistant is telling me they are making a Despicable Me2. Yes I will probably be going to see it.

In absence of a blog I bring you rambling and an explanation

I know I was supposed to blog every day. I promised to blog every day. What I'm doing now isn't even a blog, it's a mad dash to beat the clock. But I have a good reason Why I have not blogged in the past few days. My Internet went down. If the guys had not come to fix it today I would be typing this post furtively from the library where I was where I completely fogot to check out history books until it was too late and was trying to finish one before my Mom came to get me. I nearly did too.

Currently I am writing this blog whil reading Isaac Asimov's "Robot Dreams". So far he's doing pretty well. I think I may have found the robot from I, Robot in here too! And "The Machine That Won The War" was just brilliant. He's complicated enough without leaving me behind (the introduction helped too).

And now I mus go because I have math to do because I have to go out tomorrow but I will do a post tomorrow (unless the Internet breaks itself again) and I 'll tell you about why I'm afraid of robots, why zombies are better thatn unicorns and the continuing adventures of my hair and how my finger is doing.


(55 minutes to spare)

BEDA, hair and cut fingers

Today is my first day of BEDA. Not the first day, I missed yesterday because I'm a bad person and could not get to a computer which is a long story that I'll tell you later cuz I have 45 minutes to write this blog before I have missed two full days of BEDA. Why am I writing this blog so late? Tell you just now (Ow it hurts to type).

BEDA or Blog every day in August is  pretty self explanatory. That's about it. Last year Maureen Johnson, who was behind on her blogging, decided to blog every day in April. She's not doing it this year because she is writing which I don't mind because I want The Last Little Blue Envelope and Scarlett 3 and ther new paranormal series. But I have no pressing engagements and I need to get back into the habit of writing something (because I have been obscenely bad at that)  and there are no more months left that begin with A so here we go.

Today I spent mayes 4-6 hours doing my hair. I have really thick curly hair and It had not been done in weeks because the only hair product that works on my hair went into hiding. I could make a whole blog on my hair but I am saving that for another time. Anyway while I was washing it/trying to pull out the knots it was so made at me it actually sliced open two of my fingers. No blood but it hurts like hell.

And I think that's about it. I'll see you guys tomorrow. (29 minutes to spare)


P.S What do you think of the new layout?

I'm back

Fur realz this time. And I've got presents for you!

1. This site: Too many zombies is a freakin' awesome sit filled with zombies (obviously). There's one for every day.

2. The new Artemis Fowl. It's coming out. Next month.

Synopsis I stole off of Amazon:Artemis has committed his entire fortune to a project he believes will save the planet and its inhabitants, both human and fairy. Can it be true? Has goodness taken hold of the world’s greatest teenage criminal mastermind?

Captain Holly Short is unconvinced, and discovers that Artemis is suffering from Atlantis Complex, a psychosis common among guilt-ridden fairies - not humans - and most likely triggered by Artemis’s dabbling with fairy magic. Symptoms include obsessive-compulsive behavior, paranoia, multiple personality disorder and, in extreme cases, embarrassing professions of love to a certain feisty LEPrecon fairy.

Unfortunately, Atlantis Complex has struck at the worst possible time. A deadly foe from Holly’s past is intent on destroying the actual city of Atlantis. Can Artemis escape the confines of his mind – and the grips of a giant squid – in time to save the underwater metropolis and its fairy inhabitants?

Cover I stole off of
Artemis Fowl and the Atlantis Complex

An you can read the first chapter here.

3. ( I just found this out) Apparently another freakin' awesome book is coming out soon too. The Heroes of Olympus, Book One: The Lost Hero. It's the next Camp Half-Blood series, it's got some old demigods some new ones.

Another synopsis I stole off of Amazon:After saving Olympus from the evil Titan lord, Kronos, Percy and friends have rebuilt their beloved Camp Half-Blood, where the next generation of demigods must now prepare for a chilling prophecy of their own:

Seven half-bloods shall answer the call,
To storm or fire the world must fall.
An oath to keep with a final breath,
And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death.

Now, in a brand-new series from blockbuster best-selling author Rick Riordan, fans return to the world of Camp Half-Blood. Here, a new group of heroes will inherit a quest. But to survive the journey, they’ll need the help of some familiar demigods.

The Heroes of Olympus, Book One: The Lost Hero

And you can read the first two chapters here. The password is newhero.

4. Maureen Johnson is running a YA Lit Day at LeakyCon 2011. In related news, anyone knows where I could find out more about LeakyCon?

5. For my birthday (which was 9 days ago) I bought a huge stack of books. I would show you but my presents did not include a camera. I will be doing reviews of the books later on though.

6.Two Skulduggery Pleasant books. One year. I have neither yet but I will get them. Until then go over to Derek Landy's blog. It has the cover art for Mortal Coil and other cool stuff (plus the more we comment the more he has to blog)

7. My friend started a website reviewing manga. Go check it out.

8. For all member of the UK or the Commonwealth there is competition going on where you can win The Terry Pratchett Prize. For more info go here. I'll be making a list of a bunch of turning points in history and I will include mine, I just won't tell you what it is.

I think that's it, though there's probably something I've forgotten that I will remember much later. Oh well.

Where I have been?

Shh, I'm not even supposed to be telling you this. I'm on a sekrit mission fighting the unicorn menace! I'm warning you because they're everywhere, disguising themselves amongst you, spreading ideas like book-banning and pollution!

I wish.* What I was really doing this month? Procrastinating. I came up with on short story idea, several book ideas and some Youtube video ideas (I'm not even on Youtube...yet). I even came up with the best book title ever. And forgot it. All I remember is that it as a parody of something from litereature I may have heard from the vlogbrothers. The book is told entirely from someone's internal monologue and it has the word "Monologue" in it. It is about 3 words long. Feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments.

This month wasn't a total bust though. I read some fabulous books like "Wings" and "The Light Fantastic". Caught up on my manga like D. Gray Man. This would be the part where I promise to be on more but I can't. In approx. 24 days I have to take some of the hardest exams of my life and then I have end of term. On the plus side I will put up at least one story on my deviantART and finish my thing for a sekrit projekt (click here for more details If I survive you will see me talking to my fridges and wearing my clothes upside down. Oh and if I get time I will tell you all about my Great Script Frenzy Adventure!!!


*or am I telling the truth?

Just a few more things

  • I realised that though I started this blog about writing I don't write much about it. But then you never can write if you have never read, or lived.

  • I find it easier to type out emotional scenes than write them out. When you're writing you have to think about the words, when you're typing its only letters.
Well I'm being thoughtful today. I better look up something funny before I start crying again.

The Book Thief

Today I finished The Book Thief by Mark Zuckerman. The most important thing that happened while I read this book, at the end I cried.

I do not cry easily, in my life I have cried only a handful of times. I like to think I am tough, and I want to save my tears for important things. The Book Thief was very important.

The Book Thief is about WWII Germany, this is no heroic story of me plotting to overthrow Hitler, or a Jew's struggle in a concentration camp, this is something we tend to forget about. The regular Germans. The one who hid while miles above their heads the Allies planes dropped their deaths. The one who cried when their brothers, their fathers died in places too far away from home. This is about a girl named Liesel. It is narrated, appropriately in the circumstances by Death.

This book is beautiful and terrible. Through the novel Death tells you the end. His reason is because the mystery bores him, it is much more interesting seeing the events leading to it. He is right. And even though you now the ending it still culminates in the realisation of the undercurrent of pain and sorrow you feel throughout the novel. And happiness and hope. Even while I read The Book Thief through my tears and saw in my head Liesel going through the streets of the now destroyed Himmel,Heaven in German, seeing the bodies of those she loved I knew that this was the best way it had to end. The books thief saved by a book and Death receiving her story.

There is much more to this story than I can say but I can say that after I finished reading The Book Thief I saw how small it really was. 54s paged did not seem adequate to tell a story like this.

And in remembrance of Death and his distractions today I looked at the colours of the sky. It was a pale blue, fading to almost white in some parts, or a transparency but with nothing on the other side. There was a long cloud, wispy but much thicker than the ones around it. It reminded me of an arrow, stretching across the sky and pointing to a direction I could not see.

And just on more thing, I typed this blog out as soon as I got on the computer, I did not watch TV or do anything to make me forget the terrible brilliance of this story. It made me want to write a story like it, a story so beautiful that in the end you will cry from joy or sorrow or the strange yet familiar mix of the two. That is what the best stories can do. And now with my eyes still burning from the tears I can tell you that this is the end

Sugar Doll Award

Becs from Wicked Ink thought I was
worthy of the Sugar Doll award. I'm not sure why but I'm not questioning it. (Byt the way check her out)

Anyway to claim the award I need to tell you 10 interesting facts about me. Yeah this is going to be hard.

1. I'm incredibly accident prone. Everyday I bump into something, fall or injure myself in some way.

2. Continuing the theme from the last post when I was ten I fell down the stairs and off the 4 foot high landing onto the tile floor. I got two cuts and that was all.

3. I have been cooking for myself, doing my own laundry and generally taking of myself since I was like born. That's what television did to my generation.

4.I have never had any of the common childhood illnesses unless you count the cold. My mom tried very hard for me to get them but I never did. I am afraid for what this means for my future.

5.I read insanely fast. I read Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in 1-2 days.

6.I have an unusual memory. It is both terrible and wonderful at the same time.

7. When I was about 1-3(my mom isn't sure) I watched Jurassic Park and I laughed at the part when the guy got his head bit off. I was a cool kid but a little twisted.

8. I was a really cool baby as previously stated. I could belly dance.

9.I have a paralyzing fear of insects and spiders. The insects I am most afraid of are dragonflies and butterflies. Stupid sticker saying there were Bee butterflies.

10. I either want to live in Dublin, New York or Tokyo when I grow up. I'm a city girl who likes trees.

Now for the re-awarding to five other bloggers:

1.Monica at Hush

2.Nicole at Nothing News

3.Amaya at Chimeran Falls

4.Vital-Organs at A Dabbler's Revenge

5.S.P. at Scrawling on the Walls

My new trying to be steampunk book.

I gotted the block. Over 20,000 words into the Circus and I got stick. So in what will probably turn out to be a bad decision I started one of my other books.

What I think it's going to be about:A country divided into insertnumberhere regions, each using it's own specific power source and all warring. And then a bunch of important people will die and two kids (always) will have to go on a quest. I'm just not sure for what yet.

What I wrote so far:
“Achew” sneezed the man. “May Azrak deliver me form this accursed cold,” he muttered, wiping his nose and handlebrush mustasche. Mist leaked in through the holes in the windowglass creating the effect of clouds lurking in the high ceilings. A lonely fire burned low at his side. Sniffing he continued writing, his quill pen scratching against the parchment.

“Oh how I long for the gas lights of Jakra. And we have paper instead of this cursed parchment,” he lamented.

Tell me if you like it Internet.


Happy V-day

I know it's the 15th Internet but this is something I have to tell you about.

Yesterday was V-day. Not the over commercialized one or the Saint day but the other one. The one against rape and violence against women. It was started my Eve Ensler in the 1990s and now she has included a new book for girls called I am an Emotional creature

To find out more go to or

Free Barbie!

P.S. I'm going to try to start my secret project today. Might tell you more about it later Internet.

Did I write yesterday?

Yes, yes I did. For the first time in almost two months I worked on my book. I wrote 32 words. Yes I did epically fail. I will try to do better today.

What I wrote yesterday:
"and to make sure all of Loli’s roommates were already dead. She didn’t think she could kill them all and while Loli was sleeping would be the easiest time to kill her."

Unrelated to writing but still important

I was on twitter on evening when @maureenjohnson showed us this:

It's like a dream come true. Maybe I'll make a character that uses a chainsaw like this. See? I managed to work in writing. If you want to ogle this magnificent creation go check it out at

And yes I'm working on my writing. I can't take those blank bars anymore, staring at me, judging me.

A short notice, some stuff that happened to me and a question

I leaned recently (i.e. yesterday but I was too embarrassed to say) that there is no English spelling of author, that is the one of the few words the Americans did not see fit to change. Well I've decided that mis-spelling will be my thing. You hear that future generations! I have taken one more thing from you!

Anyway remember how yesterday I told you about the epic battle of zombies vs. unicorns? Well what else could be an epic battle? Dragons vs. Grocery baggage boys? Werewolves vs. Goblins? Cowboys vs. Vampires? Ninjas vs. Fairies? The Missing Link vs. Witches? The Blob vs. Elves? Dwarves vs. Ghosts? I want you to tell me what you think should be the next epic battle.

My Spanish teacher made us guess what actor she thought was handsome and I was the first person to say Johnny Depp. She has good taste.

And the ever awesome Maureen Johnson made a video:

Zombies vs. Unicorns

Yes we all know the old Vampires vs. Werewolves (so 5 minutes ago) but now an even awesomer battle is looming on the horizon. It is... Zombies vs. Unicorns!!!!!!!!! Personally I'm more a fan of zombie-unicorns myself but to each his own.

To find out more about this awesome battle:

I'm on blogger

I finally have an official blog. I've been meaning to do this since last year, which doesn't mean much considering last year was 2 months ago. but I digress. This will be a blog about me and my writing, but not always at the same time. Until next time.
