I Signed Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Petition

I did it!  I signed the petiton to help change school food.  There are only about 2000 people from Arkansas who have signed as of right now.  I really think that this is a good idea.  It's all about traditional meals that people are used to but made with fresh ingredients.  I've been trying it and actually by adding more veggies and fruit into my meal, I'm eating more food and don't get that starving feeling before the next meal.  He's got a ton of new recipes on his sitehere and if you want to sign the petition you can click here.

I love Jaime Oliver's Food Revolution.  I have started to be more conscience of the processed foods I eat and want to choose fresh foods.   This week I did not buy a single tv dinner.  It's going to take a little bit more planning and time but I want to start eating healthier. 

Happy Easter!

Nothing can hinder God’s plans. I know that all limitations brought on by fear are illusions. I am confident in my authority over the world. I have spiritual understanding to know that even if things may look like they are getting worse for the time being, I know that once everything has stopped moving, everything will be rearranged to look more like the plans God has for me. I will not accept appearances.   I know that all limitations placed upon me are lies. I recognize the authority I have over the world in Christ. I know I have the power to change and shape the world. I am awake now and I will not go back to believing in limits and hindrances. I will not limit God. I know that His power is the greatest power and He has unleashed it in me. I will not accept the status quo. I realize this false security and will not let it stop me. I will not look to anything but God as my source of good. I will not see God’s word as common place. I will have fresh inspiration from the Holy Spirit daily. Everything in my life will be under Christ’s authority and will be changed according to His will. 



Nano story

I found an article that is related to my nano story.  I thought I would post it here to save it for reference.

Yetis Are Awesome!

The party was so great.  Highlights of the evening - seeing my dog so happy, making smores over an open flame, Barbara's yeti cake, Sara'sTruffle, Sara's encouraging cards, Shay retelling the yeti history, Buffy vs. Edward Callen, Bob, an of course Apples to Apples.   I love all my yeti friends.  You are welcome over anytime.  It's going to be a great NaNo.

For anyone who missed it here's the Buffy vs.  Edward Cullen:

Book Search Site

I came across a book site that lists detailed reviews and elements about a certain type of book.  It's a good site if you want to see what types of books are already out there that might be similar to a story you are writing for NaNo and what elements they include.  Here is the link.

I did a search for stories similar to my own NaNo story and some of  the results that I thought were interesting were:

Nancy Drew books
Series of Unfortunate Events
The Ledgend of Sleepy Hollow
A Ghost In The House
The Talisman
The Eyre Affair (A Thursday Next Story)
'Repent, Harlequin!' Said the Ticktockman'
Inkheart

Link to comic con story:  Batman Musical


Comic-Con 2009: Batman Musical to Premiere

It seems strange to think of a superhero musical, but apparently there was “It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Superman” in the 1960’s and “ Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” coming to Broadway next year. But now, according to latimes.com, there is soon to be a Batman musical.

It is reportedly titled “Mayhem of the Music Meister” and is from the producers of “Batman: The Brave and the Bold” animated series that airs on the Cartoon Network. And what’s more, upcoming Emmy host Neil Patrick Harris is said to be providing the voice of the Music Meister.

The new musical is apparently being unveiled to fans who are attending the 2009 San Diego Comic-Con that is being held from Thursday 23rd July to Sunday 26th July. The series producer James Tucker said that he thought doing the Batman musical would be a fun thing to do.

 



Summer Reading
apprentice10
I made a list of books I want to read this summer.  I've been doing a good job of actually sitting down to read some of them.   So far I have read books in adult fiction,  young adult fiction, and nonfiction. 

For my adult fiction I read The Stolen Child by Keith Donohue. 


It's about a boy who is taken and replaced by a changeling.  One grows up, one doesn't.  It goes back and forth between the two boys lives with elements intertwining in a Slaughterhouse Five kind of way.   The middle is slow.  it picks up pace and comes to a satisfying conclusion but the children growing older in time and doing adult things but staying in children's bodies is kinda creepy.  :\ 

My young adult fiction was The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. 



His family murdered, a baby wanders into a graveyard and finds the pity of the ghosts there.  They raise him as one of their own.  Gaiman was inspired by The Jungle Book.  It's good, it's Gaiman.  :)

For my nonfiction I picked up the CD version of The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch at the library.



The author, a professor, finds out he has cancer and only months to live.  The book was a supplement to the final speech he gave at the university.   It's got a few little tidbits about living life with hope when facing death but he's making plans to die.  Not the best choice for light hearted summer reading.  :P

The next books on my list are The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan, The Selected Works of T. S. Spivet by Reif Larsen, and Assasination Vacation by Sarah Vowell.
