Long Time Ban

Oops, I was rude again, and so I'm banned of the computer for about a month.
I'm at one of my mum's friend's house on her computer, and I do believe that mum has forgotten about this certain thing!
How Fortunate!
Karatez is going great! I'm getting ready for the first competition of the season, can't wait! But I do have to practise! I am really rooting for gold!
I'm listening to lots of new songs on my beloved old ipod. I'm really in love with She's So Lovely by Scouting for Girls. It was in Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging, and I love that movie playlist! And all the Stiff Dylans music to!
Anyways, I'll be on the computer in about a month or so. April at the lastest!

Long Week

Forgive me if I'm behind in everything, I was banned off the computer for a whole week for being rude to my mum... I'm sorry mum!
I had a brilliant week though! We went to see two movies, Marley and Me, with my whole family and my dad actually cried!
I thought that was really funny, because my dear father never cries at movies. I don't think I've ever really seen him cry!
I wasn't sad though, because in the end they were happy, because Marley, the very naughty, worstest (is that a word? I don't believe it is) dog in the whole world, ( who died) had had a nice life and they had told him that they loved him with all their hearts and gave him the most beautiful burial.
He died because his stomach flipped over or something weird like that.
This was after having been brought by this man, John (Owen Wilson), for his wife (Jennifer Aniston), as something to keep her from wanting a baby.
It worked for a couple of years, and then she had a baby, anther, and anther. Their life went on like that.
The saddest thing was it was based on a true story.
And to tell you the truth, I had small tears in my eyes, that I kept from falling down. There were a lot of red noses and eyes in the house.
The other movie was He's Just Not That Into You.
I went and saw this with the gals of my household. Dearest mummy, and meanie Sissie.
I had fun watching all the people line up. It was mostly sad looking female persons, and very tolerant men, few in numbers. The place was packed though! To the very seat.
I did think it was an unusual movie to be coming out on Valentines though. He's Just Not That Into You?
But for the actual movie I have no words really. It was wasn't my kinda thing I guess.
Mostly poor rejected women, like those lining up in the theater, but much better looking.
What else happened in my week? Well it was karate karate karate non stop, but that is nothing out of the ordinary. My dog has been sick a bit, a vomiting thing to do with some new dog-roll we think, but I'm pretty sure those of you reading this blog that aren't completely Gross, don't want to hear about that right? There goes that topic!

Well, we could talk about Australia going up in smoke and the poor people who have been dieing in the flames. I reckon those arsonists should get twenty years hard labour and then when their sentence is over, life. Pity they don't do that in Oz. At least, I don't think they do.

The City of Bones

Aah, Don't you love saying that? "What a novel idea!" I do, does that make me weird?

Maybe. But maybe, just maybe, if you spend so much time with your nose between the pale yellow pages of books, the words literally rub of on you.

I do know, that I try never to include like, or random, or um, in my lingo. I try and speak very clear and quite loud, especially if the person to which I am talking to is old, or perhaps mumbles him or hers self, because then I find they inclined copy my actions, even if it is unconsciously.

But sometimes I do the normal teenage, or tween thing. I stand backwards and shrug and grunt and say "Hello" in a low grumbling voice.
I one day want to be brave enough to lean forward and shake that person's hand! To say "Hi" and mean it! To ask them how their day was and all of that, etc etc.
I do speech and drama lessons once a week, and I do suppose, since then I have become more confident in my words.
We do all the silly stuff, that makes you giggle and laugh in that soundless way that is actually the biggest of laughs.
We make our Cs, and Ks, nice and crisp with our tongues, and repeat "CCccooKKk tooKkk a looKKKk at her CCccookkkery booKKkk" etc etc.
The lady who teaches me is funny, and certainly a very vibrant person, though sometimes she can be a bit draining, she is so full of energy!
We called her Elastigirl because she is so long and bendy! lol.

Last year we did an end of year concert, based on an Alice in Wonderland Theme.

I narrated "The Walrus and The Carpenter" for the little kids play, and then I recited a small poem, something about a Crocodile, I can't remember.
Right at the end there was a large piece, and whole chapter, called "The Mad Tea Party"
I was the Mad Hatter for this, and it was hilarious! I enjoyed myself tremendously! And I daresay, so did everyone else ( Notice my grandiose lingo?)
Anyways, speaking of novels and lingo and all of that extremely boring stuff. i would like to talk about books, oh dearest things!
The latest book I have read is the City of Bones - Book One - The Mortal Instruments - By Cassandra Clare.
It's an awesome book, with sexy demons aka; Shadow Hunters, Vampires and Werewolves and as said by Kelly Link, an epic urban fantasy at its demented delightful best. I agree 100%!
I have yet to read the second book, but I would defiantly recommend this to anyone still weaning off Twilight and HP, though in truth, it may just been anther series that is going to take away your heart again. Be prepared to fall in love once more with some, witty, good looking characters that are nothing like what you'd expect!

Read it!

And for a definition for my dictionary, here is one. Under B.
Budgie Smugglers; Speedos - aka, really small men's swimming garment!

Okay Dokey

So my Internet sucks, and I have moved from my crap-stasic old blog, the Fork In The Path, to here. Who thought up that strange title anyway?

If you see anything a bit strange, it's because I'm still.. redesiging the place, Ya Know? Moving the red couch to here, and the fairy lights to there.

It's a large and very exciting process!
I have some grandiose ideas for this blog, (hopefully soon my adsense will be verified!), one for instance is writing down my very cool verison of the dictionary at the end of some posts.

To start reading these, click on Katie's Dictionary, and hopefully by the time any one is reading this; I will have actually corrected some words that have appeared wrong in the dictionary.

Anyways, please keep on reading my posts as they come!

Catch Ya Later!

And A new icon from me, free for use.

"Does My Butt Look Big?" You can downsize it and use it as an avatar etc. I think it looks sort of retro, don't you think?

Anyways, me and my sister watched Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging yesterday on DVD, and so shortly, I'll tell you what I think of it. I know I loved her cat, Angus!!
