I'm a Bandita now!!

There's this show I watch called Deadliest Catch. Well, one of the boats is called Time Bandit. The two brothers who run the boat are Capt. Andy Hillstrand & Capt. Jonathon Hillstrand. Jon does the Alaskan Red King Crab Season & Andy does the Opilio Season. Well, they wrote a book together. The book is called Time Bandit: Two Brothers, the Bering Sea, and One of the World's Deadliest Jobs. They came to a local book signing. I got the book autographed by both of them. Andy wrote: "Congrats on the 4.0!" Jon wrote: Stay in school, Shut-up and Fish!" My mom even got pictures.


P.S. Have you met anyone famous?

Do you remember that event that I told you about in my previous post? Well, I went to it and I had fun . I was there for 5 hours. I had to stay inside the whole time in the big cat room to help customers and answer questions. I didn't mind because it was quite hot outside that day. Before I went home I got 2 shirts and a goody bag. Inside the goody bag there was a small bag of dog food, a pen, a notepad, an orange bracelet, and information and dogs and cats.

As Tigger would say, ta ta for now.

P.S. Do you own any animals?

My animals

In my profile I mentioned that I like animals and that I also volunteer at my local animal shelter. Well, it's true. I'm 100% animal lover. On Sunday, July 20th I went to the animal shelter. There are only dogs and cats there so that's why I'm in the cat department. I'm going to list some names now. These are cat names. You may have the same name so please don't get offended.

My favorite female cats & kittens:
. Brooklyn (adopted)
. Francesca (adopted or in ISO)
. Lenore
. Pheobe
. Midnight
. Mama Kitty
. Jonie
. Mary Anna
. Annie
. Mother and daughter (no names; long hair Calico)

My favorite male cats & kittens:
. Gorgon (adopted)
. my pretty boy Jake (adopted or in ISO)
. Half Pint (kitten)
. Dip Stick (kitten)
. Chubby (kitten)

Saturday, July 26th there's going to be an event at the animal shelter. I'm going to this event because I'm a volunteer. All staff and volunteers will get a special T-shirt. I'm not aloud to say what the event is called.

So long

P.S. Do you volunteer anywhere?

Tacoma Cont.

I had so much fun over the weekend in Tacoma. The weather was unexpectedly hot. I was amazed to find that the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium was so huge. Its size is just over 5 acres. I saw lots of different animals: A Peacock, Beluga Whales, Harbor Seals, Pacific Walrus, Sea Otters, Tufted Puffins, Red Wolves, Sharks, Octopus, Seahorses, Tropical fish, Birds of Prey, Sumatran Tigers, White-cheeked gibbons, Siamangs, Lowland anoas, Malayan tapirs, Crested Porcupines, Asian otters, Asian elephants, Meerkats, Ring-tailed lemurs, Black lemurs, Arctic Foxs, Muskox, Polar Bears, Reindeer, and a Turtle. WOW!!!!!!!! That's quite a list. I told you that place is huge. There are more animals there but they're mostly creepy crawlies. Before we left, I bought a shot glass and a small water bottle. I also had an unexpected trip to Olympia, Washington. My great uncle showed us his new condo and he told us funny stories. On the way home my family and I stopped at Snoqalamie Falls. It was really neat. The place had a little gift shop and I bought another shot glass. I now have a total of 58 shot glasses. There are only 5 places left in my showcase.

Ta Ta For Now

P.S. What do you like to collect?

I wish I had a digital camera. oh well.

Ridding the World of Pennies

Last night I watched the last 15 minutes of 60 Minutes. (Normally I don't watch this show because I think it's boring.) Morly Shaffer, the reporter, visited one of the mints where they create pennies. Shaffer was at the mint because there's controversey about the penny. Some people think the penny should be taken out of circulation. Other people want our beloved penny to stay in circulation. As for myself, I want our penny to stay. The important people who mint the pennies are thinking about creating new backsides to the penny. They all look really cool. Our beloved penny with good ol' honest Abe Lincoln on the back won't ever be taken away.(Or at least I hope it won't.)

ta ta for now

P.S. Do you think our penny should be taken away?

Hey everybody,

Right now I am doing nothing because I am so very bored. I went to my gramma's house today, it was fun. Yesterday I went to Barnes N' Noble and got a new book and a new 2009 daily planner. I love that place. Also, I stopped by Claire's and looked at their earrings. It was kind of hard because I need nickle-free, and none of the earrings said nickle-free. But, I'm sure there were specific racks. Oh well.


P.S. How do you deal with boredom?
