YAY!!! Tomorrow is FRIDAY!!! I am going to sleep so late! Next time my dad drops by Nairobi, he's gonna pick up some more Kenshin books that I ordered! I'm so EXCITED!!! *hugs self*

I have finally finished my english and physical science papers, so that's good, and since my english paper is a story, I shall post it, please comment and tell me what you think ^^


“What!?” I retorted in surprise. “What are you saying?” “It’s just what I’m saying,” my boss replied. “You are a trustworthy figure at NASA, and we need you to check this out. We’ve already sent a crew fifty years ago, but they haven’t reported back at all.”
We sat in his office, a cold steel box with bullet-proof windows, and what few comforts were allowed; a hard leather couch and a navy rug, spread out on the concrete floor. Except for his steel desk and chair, those were the only other pieces of furniture in his office, showing his personality perfectly, hard, cold, and unfriendly.
That was ten years ago, when I was able to eat solid food, and drink water out of a glass. I was in space searching out a planet, a planet beyond Pluto. A planet called 394JYYY, and I was against it from the beginning. Sure I was familiar with space travel, but the trips I had frequented were closer to earth, such as the moon, or even the planet Jupiter. This trip however, was to find the recently discovered planet 394JYYY, and discover what had happened to the recent crew that had left for it, sixty years ago.
However, the thought of trying to land on an unknown planet, with no idea of its makeup or atmosphere, was not my ideal in the least bit. But as my boss had said with a smirk, “I thought you liked adventures!” Well, I’ve never wanted to prove him right, but the thought of being called a coward was even worse, at least…that’s what I thought then.
My crew of five and I had been loaded onto the newest build of rocket, the fastest in the world, so the trip had taken only ten years instead of the estimated fifty. Finally…
“We’ve arrived captain!” called out one of my crew-mates, a skinny, pasty looking man who we called Eel, “we land in 24 hours!” I looked out of the closest window and gaped. No wonder they had been able to see the planet from earth, it was huge! I had been told that it was larger than the sun, but this was ridiculous. It filled all of my view, even though it was still millions of miles away, and it was growing larger every second.
The next 24 hours were a blur, and when we finally landed, it was near the end of the day. The planet was lit by another star, and not our sun, so we could tell. When we finally go suited up, resembling large teddy bears, we stepped out of the rocket for the first time in ten years.
The first four of us were careful as we climbed out, feeling the pull of gravity, but another of my crewmates, a huge Czechoslovakian who we called Dozer, leapt to the ground, obviously forgetting gravity, and we all laughed at his sprawled form on the soft turf. Little did we know, that would be our last time to laugh.
After wiping our eyes, and with one last snicker, we turned our attention, and gazed at the landscape of soft colors. However, there was something strange about them, since not one of the colors came from our world. There were huge spongy plants that resembled mushrooms, and mosaic covered shells, and we basked in the soft light coming from their sun.
After unloading the rocket, we tested the air, and found that it was the same as on earth, so we unsuited, and were free of our cumbersome guardians. Little did we know our mistake. The air was sweet and fragrant, and made us drowsy. Pixie, the female of the crew staggered into a spongy bank covered with some type of moss, and that’s when our troubles began. Unsuited, we were left bare to physical danger like newborn babies, and the minute she leaned against the bank, it seemed that she stiffened, and her eyes rolled up in her head. That’s how she died. A trickle of crimson blood slid down the treacherously mossy bank, mixing with the strange colors. We were able to see spikes protruding from her abdomen, and the moss was already spreading to her body, only ten seconds after her death.
For the moment, we were frozen in shock, and when we did move, it was in panic. All at once, we ran for her body, hoping to find a glimmer of life, a smile, anything… but that was our second mistake. As fast as lightning, spikes by the thousands rushed up to meet us, and skewered us like shish kabobs.
That was merely ten seconds ago, now I see my fellow crewmates’ mangled bodies, twisted in pain. I think back to that day in my boss’ office. Oh to be called a coward instead of dying such a horrible death. And now that I know what happened to the other crew that came here before, and the crews that will most likely come in the future… but it is too late now. I see and smell the sweet death of blood, and now, my vision is clouded by the root of my being. And thinking such things, I die…
Two of the inhabitants looked on at the product of their destruction. “It was their own faults” garbled one in a strange language, “for stumbling into the valley of thorns, they should have known better.”
“We need to stop these aliens from coming to our world!” replied the other, “we must uproot their species.”
“Yes” agreed the other.
And the spongy soil soaked up the invader’s crimson blood.

Well... besides the gore, I hope you liked it ^^

YAY! I'm so happy! I get to sleep in tomorrow ^^ To celibrate this fact, here's a funny joke my mom emailed me ^^ Enjoy

A wealthy old lady decides to go on a photo safari in Africa, taking her faithful aged poodle named Cuddles, along for the company.

One day the poodle starts chasing butterflies and before long, Cuddles discovers that he's lost.. Wandering about, he notices a leopard heading rapidly in his direction with the intention of having lunch.

The old poodle thinks, "Oh, oh! I'm in deep doo-doo now!"

Noticing some bones on the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching cat. Just as the leopard is about to leap the old poodle exclaims loudly, "Boy, that was one delicious leopard! I wonder if there are any more around here?"

Hearing this, the young leopard halts his attack in mid-strike, a look of terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees. "Whew!", says the leopard, "That was close! That old poodle nearly had me!"

Meanwhile, a monkey who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby tree, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for
protection from the leopard. So off he goes, but the old poodle sees him heading after the leopard with great speed, and figures that something must be up. The monkey soon catches up with the leopard, spills the beans and strikes a deal for himself with the leopard.

The young leopard is furious at being made a fool of and says, "Here, monkey, hop on my back and see what's going to happen to that conniving

Now, the old poodle sees the leopard coming with the monkey on his back and thinks, "What am I going to do now?", but instead of running, the dog sits down with his back to his attackers, pretending he hasn't seen them yet, and just when they get close enough to hear, the old poodle says. "Where's that darn monkey? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another leopard!

Moral of this story.... Don't mess with old farts...age and treachery will
always overcome youth and skill! Wisdom and brilliance only come with age
and experience.

LOL! It figures that it was mym mom that sent it ^^ (No, she's not an old fart^^ She's really cool)

Well... tonight is variety night, (where there's a whole bunch of activities going on, and you get to choose one to go to) My mom and I are going to the reduced Shakespear skits, it looks really funny ^^

Also, tomorrow is movie night, and I think that the movie is; "The Illusionist", but I'm not sure. However, it sounds like it could be good ^^

Ay yi yi... I have so much homework X( Oh well, my mom let me borrow Joan of Arc from the library, so that's something to watch sometime soon ^^

This is a funny story I got from a friend ^^

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went on a camping trip. After a good meal
and a bottle of wine they lay down for the night, and went to sleep. Some
hours later, Holmes awoke and nudged his faithful friend.

"Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see."

Watson replied, "I see millions and millions of stars."

"What does that tell you?"

Watson pondered for a minute. "Astronomically, it tells me that there are
millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically,
I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Chronologically, I deduce that the time
is approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, I can see that God
is all powerful and that we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically,
I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell

Holmes was silent for a minute, then spoke. "Watson, you idiot. Someone
has stolen our tent."

(LOL) Isn't that hilarious? I guess it's more funny cuz we were just studying Sherlock Holmes in English class ^^

See you all later ^^

   Aaaaaah... SORRY!!!

Oh no, I'm so sorry everyone!!! I keep forgetting to update, and I'm not commenting!!! Sorry, I shall now discipline myself *hits wrist* I shall now attempt to do better ^^

Anyway, school went OK today, since I don't have too much homework, and Swahili class actually made sense today ^^ We're now learning numbers, so in Kiswahili, the year right now would be... ummmmm... Oh drat, I forgot! *sorry, I guess I lied*

Well... I went to couseling today, and things are going OK, so far my mood has been improving, and when I get home, I get to hang out with my cute little brother ^^ *snuggles with him* He's so cute, but he was born with hydrosephilus and spina bifida, so he's paralyzed from the waist down, and has a larger head than most babies, because of the excess water, but he's still really cute ^^

Here's a really funny story from my cousin ^^

IDIOTS: They walk among us

IDIOTS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD: I live in a semi- rural area. We recently had a new neighbor call the local township administrative office to request the removal of the Deer Crossing sign on our road. The reason: "too many deer were being hit by cars" and he didn't want them to cross there anymore. This one was from Kingman, KS.

IDIOTS IN FOOD SERVICE: My daughter went to a local Taco Bell and ordered a taco. She asked the person behind the counter for "minimal lettuce." He said he was sorry, but they only had iceberg. And he was a Kansas City chef!

IDIOT SIGHTING: I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee asked, "Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge? To which I replied, "If it was without my knowledge, how would I know? He smiled knowingly and nodded, "That's why we ask." Happened in Birmingham, Ala.

IDIOT SIGHTING: The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it's safe to cross the street. I was crossing with an intellectually challenged coworker of mine when she asked if I knew what the buzzer was for. I explained that it signals blind people when the light is red. Appalled, she responded, "What on earth are blind people doing driving?!" She was a probation officer in Wichita, KS


At a good-bye luncheon for an old and dear coworker who was leaving the company due to "downsizing," our manager commented cheerfully, this is fun. We should do this more often." Not a word was spoken. We all just looked at each other with that deer-in-the-headlights stare. This was a bunch at Texas Instruments.

IDIOT SIGHTING: I work with an individual who plugged her power strip Back into itself and for the life of her couldn't understand why her system would not turn on. A deputy with the Dallas County Sheriff's office no less.

IDIOT SIGHTING: When my husband and I arrived at an automobile dealership to pick up our car, we were told the keys had been locked in it. We went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver's side door. As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that it was unlocked. "Hey," I announced to the technician, "it's open!" To which he replied, "I know - I already got that side." This was at the Ford dealership in Canton, Mississippi!

*they walk among us ... AND REPRODUCE!!!

Hey ^^

Oh, I'm so sorry. I've been so busy I havn't had time to update ;_; Well, I'll make it up today ^^ I recently discovered the site www.mangavolume.com, so I've been there a lot of the time as well... IT'S SUCH A GREAT SITE!!! XD I highly reccomend it ^^

Here's a story I found in "Chicken Soup for the Soul"

The Secrets of Heaven and Hell

The old monk sat by the side of the road. With his eyes closed and his legs crossed and his hands folded in his lap, he sat. Suddenly his zazen was interrupted by the harsh and demanding voice of a samurai warrior. "Old man! teach me about Heaven and Hell!" At first, as though he had not heard, there wasno perseptible response from the monk. But gradually, he began to open his eyes, the faintest hint of a smile playing around the corners of his mouth as the samurai stood there waiting... impatient... growing more and more agitated with each passing second. "You would know the secrets of Heaven and Hell?" replied the monk at last. "You who are so unkempt. You whose hands and feet are covered with dirt. You whose hair is uncombed, whose breath is foul, whose sword is all rusty and neglected. You who are ugly and whose mother dresses you funny. You would ask me of Heaven and Hell?" The Samurai uttered a vile curse. He drew his sword and raised it high above his head. His face turned to crimson, the veins on his neck stood out in bold relief as he prepaired to sever the monk's head from its shoulders. "That is hell," said the old monk gently, just as the sword began its descent. In that fraction of a second, the samurai was overcome with amazement, awe, compassion and love for this gentle being who had dared to risk his very life to give him such a teaching. He stopped his sword in mid-flight and his eyes filled with grateful tears. "And that," said the mok, "is heaven."

I hope that that has you thinking ^^

YES!!! It's finally Friday, this week took SO LONG!!! Tonight I am spending the night at the dorm with my friends, and tomorrow is anime club ^^ I'm so happy ^^

Anyway, here's some funny jokes I found ^^

9 Things I Hate About Everyone

1. People who point at their wrist while asking for the time.... I know where my watch is pal, where is yours? Do I point at my butt when I ask where the toilet is?

2 People who are willing to get off their butt to search the entire room for the T.V. remote because they refuse to walk to the T.V. and change the channel manually.

3 When people say "Oh you just want to have your cake and eat it too". Darn right! What good is cake if you can't eat it?

4 When people say "it's always the last place you look". Of course it is. Why would you keep looking after you've found it? Do people do this? Who and where are they?

5 When people say while watching a film "did you see that?" No Loser, I paid $12 to come to the cinema and stare at the floor!

6 People who ask "Can I ask you a question?".... Didn't really give me a choice there, did ya sunshine?

7. When something is 'new and improved!'. Which is it? If it's new, then there has never been anything before it. If it's an improvement, then there must have been something before it, couldn't be new.

8 When people say "life is short". What?? Life is the longest thing anyone ever does!! What can you do that's longer?

9 When you are waiting for the bus and someone asks "Has the bus come yet?". If the bus came would I be standing here?

I hope you found those funny ^^
