Asthma Attacks
I found out something interesting today, AND it can help me in school. According to some science-people (to find out who you can click on the picture to find out who) Scorpios and other fall babies are more likely to develop asthma because they're born right before cold and flu season starts up. So when they start going to daycare and other things of that nature, germs are at their peak.
They also say that children in other countries develop asthma less than the ones in America because some of the other countries don't have sterile places for the babies to be born, and the kids are exposed to germs early on.
This confuses me, because if some kids get asthma more because they're exposed to germs (see first paragraph) then why do they credit other kids NOT getting asthma to being exposed to germs?

Decorations for Christmas AND Halloween!

These are very strange ornaments, which means I would put them on my Christmas tree if I had enough money to buy them. And if people wouldn't constantly try to exorcise them (particularly that one with the huge eyes, which is my favorite). Unfortunately, I don't think I'd have the guts to put them on my tree when I live alone. That would just be asking for a horror movie.

*Poke poke* Heh. I found this online and decided to see what it did. The objective is to get lots of clicks. I don't know why, though.

*Huggles Badge*

Good news! I now have a life (or, at least as much of a life that I had before November...) So expect me to actually start posting again soon. And by 'posting' I mean 'finding something ahead of time as opposed to randomly searching for a picture of a two-headed shark in my haste to add to my blog.' But right now I need to go take care of some things I've let lag. What is this 'schoolwork' of which you speak?

Monday, November 17, 2008

Erm, Hello

Yes, I know it's the middle of November and my play ended in October. See, I actually have a very good reason for this. It all started about a month ago when... LOOK A STRANGE THING YOU WOULDN'T SEE NORMALLY!

Wow, I didn't think that would work. It's a good thing I randomly found a picture of a two-headed shark. Unfortunately, the search for 'two headed shark in a tutu' didn't turn up with any pictures.

Happy Halloween, Everyone!

I got this in an e-mail, and decided to put it up here. There are, really, no words I can think of to describe this. Elmo knows where you live!

A Delicious Summertime Treat!

Next summer, when it's sweltering outside, it's time to try a tasty new treat! Bloodsicles, with all the platelet-y goodness of blood! Just kidding. The lions at the National Zoo in Washington DC, however, get a giant hunk of frozen cow blood and ice so that they can enrich themselves by pretending its a real cow (but aren't real cows, um, not ice?) and they can also just lick at it. I really want to go there and see it in action, but my summer's already packed. Which is odd, seeing as it's only late September/early October.
If you want to go ahead and try one, I won't judge.

Remote Control HUMANS?

Yes, I'm back, ready to prove that you learn more than just the names of your bones in health class. Inside your ears, there are three tubes full of liquid that help tell your body if you are moving, giving you your balance. The Chinese have used these tube to invent REMOTE CONTROL PEOPLE. You put a pair of special headphones on, and they send signals that can move the liquids inside the tubes to make you feel off-balance. To keep in balance, you instinctively walk in the direction they want you to! Supposedly, they'll be using it to relieve dizziness, but I don't really trust that. Don't buy headphones from strangers.
In other news, 50 posts!

Hello, Irregulars!

As a heads up, I might not be posting much in the next two months, because my schedule is BUSY. I have play practice almost every day, even though I only have eight (I counted them) lines and die within the first scene. It's going to be great. I also have HOMEWORK, which includes English. This year's theme seems to be people running around in the wilderness and killing each other, as that's what our first two stories (and rumor has it our fourth story) are about. The third has something to do with a cask. So, yeah, I'm not going on any 'educational trips' that relate to our curriculum any time soon.
...Yeah. But if I find anything cool, I'll try to schedule you in for, say, next week?

This is just STRANGE

It seems there's a new trend that follows the painted cat phenomenom. Botox treatments are now available for dogs. I wasn't aware that dogs got wrinkles, unless you count pugs, bulldogs and sharpeis. But they're supposed to have wrinkles. Which would make it a little obvious that they weren't all natural. I'm not even going to look for a picture on this one.

Happy Emma M. Nutt Day!

Today is Emma M. Nutt day, dedicated to the first woman telephone operator on September first, 1878. She worked at it for 33 years. Also, tomorrow is (Unofficially) Nat'l Beheading Day. I also found these on the holiday site:

They are called Qwiggle Jello Molds and I want some.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

The story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a famous one. In fact, when I searched for a picture, I found oodles of movie covers. And WHY was I searching for a picture? Because it turns out the story, like many good ones, was based on reality. William Brodie was a respected man and Decon of Edinburgh... by day. At night, he could be found in the parts of town you wouldn't walk through at night, or during the day, if you had the option not to. He was hung for murdering many people, but beforehand he put a tube down his throat to prevent his neck from snapping. After the hanging, his friends rushed his coffin home so a private doctor could try and revive him. When they opened the casket, it was empty. Did he escape death?

The Olympics

As you all know (well, maybe not,) the very first Olympic games were only for men and held naked. But my sources (aka my brother) says very very VERY first ones were not. Why did they make the change? They changed the rules after a woman dressed as a man and entered the Olympic games--beating the actual men. Of course, they didn't like this (were they just really insecure or something?) so they wanted to make sure it would never happen again.
Wonder what they would say to the Olympic games now?

I Have a Weird Post Coming Up!

Not weird, actually. Just really cool. While you're waiting, enjoy this touching video! (No worries, there are no swarms of rodents or haunted dolls anywhere. I checked.)

The Mutter Museum

(Except there are two dots on top of the U)
If anyone needs to help themselves think of weird things (e.g. some of the posts on Ananka's Diary) as less gross, I recommend a trip to the Mutter Museum. Although you'll be grossed out of your wits, things like swarms of rats and floating feet will have little to no effect on you. What other museum warns you before the tour that 'if you're disturbed, you can wait outside,' and says that 'you're dressed for the occasion' if your shirt has a skull on it? (If you know, please tell me!)I won't put any pictures up because:
1. Some people might NOT want to see the exhibits.
2. I have no pictures, as cameras are not allowed.
3. You could always check it out here.

Make a Language!

By far better than codes, languages make it much harder to crack your secret messages, and you can use them out loud. But learning French or Spanish might backfire, as other people know them. So why not make one that only you and your trustworthy associates know? This is a great help, though last time I checked the server was down. Wikihow has several helpful articles. I suggest looking at a couple and combining them.

All *I* Did was String Beads and Sing Songs

In World War I, the Girl Guides (English and Canadian equivalent to Girl Scouts) acted as couriers for secret messages from the British counter-intelligence agency. Professional messengers were needed in the war office at the time, so they decided to use the Boy Scouts. It didn’t work out. Their replacements, the girls, were mostly ranging from fourteen to eighteen in age and were paid eight shillings a week plus food. Like other agents they were sworn to secrecy, but no one suspected them.

(Above: The Girl Guides' motto: be prepared.)

I Actually am a Brunette...

Dumb Blonde Test
Dumb Blonde Test by Funny Quizzes!
MySpace Quizzes | Stupid Test | Fun Quizes.
I'm actually surprised I got 'not blonde' since I'm sort of slow... One time my bus parked the opposite direction than it normally does, and I actually started walking away from my house because I didn't notice! Luckily my friend turned me around before I ended up in Florida or something.

Are you afraid of the DARK...?

Hey, everyone, it's summer, which is good, unless you have Thermophobia, the fear of heat. Or you might have Arachibutyrophobia, the fear of having peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth. If I had to choose one, however, I think I'd like Lachanophobia, so I'd have a reason to avoid vegetables. Check out for more phobias. (Above: I hope you don't have Cyberphobia!)

My Must-Visit Tourist Attraction

The above photo was not photo-shopped in any way... well, it might have been, but the actual thing is real (I know someone who's been there). General 'Stonewall' Jackson was a General for the Confederate army during the civil war. He was shot by his own troops by mistake and lost his left arm to amputation. He was so important that they buried his arm with an actual funeral. He died a few days before the battle of Gettysburg, leaving General Robert E. Lee to lose both the battle and the war.

Sorry for taking a while...

I've been researching for some weird things, so I haven't had enough time to find something small yet (plus I have a real life, sort of). However, I found a permanent link to my Kiki-themed boutique, so I thought I'd put this up. (I'll put it on the list)And check this out.

Stop in the Name of the Law!

If you’re looking to stop a crime but can’t find anything, try stopping such odd and obscure crimes such as:

Removing rocks from the state of Hawaii,

Someone playing dominoes on Sunday in Alabama,

Someone throwing pickle juice on a trolley in Rhode Island,

Or someone singing in the bathtub in Pennsylvania (though, please, just overhear them!)

To make sure you aren’t breaking any laws in your state (or just laugh your head off) go here.

Things I Need to Get

(Other than a baby doll coat rack)

Blender Fish Tank- Relax, fish lovers! This ‘blender’ has no sharp blades (or whatever they actually put inside them.) It’s a fake blender, meant as a joke. The ones I’ve seen play sounds of screaming (cute screaming, not scary screaming) when you press one of the buttons. The fish remains unaware that you are laughing at his expense throughout the procedure.

Fairy Door- This is a teensy door that you install in your home or garden, but I think the best place is right next to your own or in a mound of dirt. Whether fairies do come to live there or not, it’s still fun to make the neighbors think you’re crazy!

Possessed Books- Who wouldn’t like a set of books that moves in and out when you walk by? Of course, I’ll probably be doing my late-night reading in a different room once they’re there, but I’ll burn that bridge when I get to it.

This Thing- First one who can tell me what it is wins a virtual cookie (your choice of type.)

The Renaissance Fair

Yesterday I went to the coolest fair ever. It was (as you can already tell by the tell-all title of this post) a renaissance fair. You could buy:
1. Wings (fake)
2. Swords (real and fake)
3. Arrows (real and fake)
4. Hair sticks
5. Crowns
6. Dragons (fake, of course)
My only regret (actually two) is that I didn't have enough money to buy everything, and that I wasn't born in the Renaissance. I would have been a pirate or something!

New Layout

Normally I would not feel this was post-worthy, but it's a pink diamond! Like from Kiki Strike! I'm such a dork that I couldn't resist putting this layout up when I found it... thanks to FN for having an awesome layout making me not be able to resist to go and find one for me.

The TRUE Test of Strength...

I'd have a picture of a wet cat here, but they all looked too scary. While looking for 'bathe a cat day' (which I know has to exist, and if it doesn't, I'll make it exist) I found this site on cat bathing. It's not really "weird" or anything, but it made me laugh out loud, and I already saw the second one.

Coolest Advertisements EVER

You really have to wonder how much the people who thought of these get paid... and why there are still commercials like Sketchers.


Okay, not even I can completely wrap my mind around this. In 1626, a man named Peter Minuit purchased the entire island of Manhattan from the Algonquin indian tribes with trinkets that were worth 60 Dutch Gilders. That's calculated to be worth, say... $24 dollars.
Now you can't even fill up a tank of gas for that much!

Happy Underground America Day!

I was searching underground cities on, and look what came up! A cool holiday that was only days away! If you click here you will find a web page dedicated to this wonderful day, including ways to celebrate.
Me? I'm going to *try* to bury my house. Or listen to a conversation through the earth.

On the subject of underground, there are actually houses that are built underground. Or, more correctly, INTO the ground. These houses may be able to slow down overpopulation (according to my brain which is not always correct) because we can go in BOTH directions now, up and down.
The interesting thing is that you don't need an air conditioner if you build it in the desert because the natural movement of the air through your front and back "door" (hole) will cool you off. Go green! Or, at least, brown!

The Not-so-Friendly Ghost

Anyone who’s read the Kiki Strike books will know how to summon a ‘ghost’ in their house. The following post could, I guess, be considered ‘extended reading’ on how to get your friends and family to finally believe in ghosts.

Pictures with Moving Eyes
There are two ways to get the eyes of your pictures to move. The first is to build a secret room behind your picture, cut the eyes out, and hire someone to stand behind it. The second is far less conspicuous. You’ll need a frame and a copy of your picture. The deeper the frame is the better. The first thing you need to do is cut out the eyes and put your photo in place. Then draw eyes on a piece of sturdy paper so the eyes would be inside the cut-out holes if the picture were placed up to the photograph. This might take a few tries. If you want to use the original eyes just glue them onto the dots. Fold the edges of the paper like this:

And glue it to the back of your photo. Then put the frame back together and place it in the room!

Appliances Acting Weird
Look online for objects that are remote controlled, such as radios or lights. Then hide your remote somewhere you can get to it inconspicuously and ‘help’ your ghost at work. If you can’t buy these, you can always set your television to a channel with static beforehand and use that remote, or speed dial your number using a cell phone.

Messages from Beyond the Beyond
If you don’t want to write on mirrors or over heaters, why not write in BLOOD? An easy way to replicate blood is to mix water with ketchup (though you can try any red substance or buy fake blood). It won’t fool anyone who tries to do a DNA test on it, but it should suit your purpose.
If you have Microsoft Word or another application on your computer with autocorrect, you can take your haunting to a whole new level. Choose a name, place, or something that might be significant to your ‘ghost’ and tell the computer to replace the word with something along the lines of ‘help’ or ‘get out.’ Make sure you have an explanation as to why you typed this word if your target asks.

Go Dog Go!

Paper Art

The following are all entries for an art contest in the Hirshorn Modern Art Gallery in DC. If anyone knows who the artists are, please tell me so I can give them credit. The challenge? To use only one sheet of paper!

So Whose to Blame?

Okay, here's something interesting. I know some people who don't believe global warming is our fault. Now, before I get any angry comments, I'm not sure if their theory is a good one or not.
According to this theory, the sun builds up energy over time, only letting out a small amount. But ever thousands of millions of years (a lot of years), the sun lets out all that pent up energy in the form of energy blasts. The sun hit the ozone and left a hole.
Coincidentally, that was when cars had just become popular, but there are no coincidences, are there?
Here's the part that makes me wonder if its true: there are more cars than EVER now, and the hole's getting smaller.

Keep in mind I got this entire thing from my sixth grade social studies teacher, who's kind of crazy.

Attention, Irregulars!

I need your help! I’ve just heard of a terrible genetic defect called Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, which affects young boys and puts them in wheelchairs as early as age eight. It has a one-hundred percent fatality rate and usually kills by the late teens or early twenties. There is no known cure, but science is on the edge of finding one. They just need donations to continue their research.
What can we do? Make others aware of this cause! Shopdrop the address of this site, put it online, and make sure everyone knows they can make a difference!
Information on how to donate can be found on the site the above link directs you to.

Math is Useful (Finally!)

Ever heard of a spirolateral? All you need is graph paper, the handy chart shown above, and a variety of markers. First write your word (or message) and translate it into numbers. Put the numbers (in the right order, of course) into the above chart. Now pick a spot in the middle of your graph paper and move in whatever direction the number tells you, counting the spaces for however long. You might want to switch colors between words, or, if you're doing one word, repeat it a couple times (four works best). Remember to make the place where you started out inked heavier than the rest of the code.
How do you decode it? It's up to you.

Coolest Words Ever

"Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind." -Rudyard Kipling

If you ever find yourself bored enough, you might end up reading the dictionary. I *cough* wasn't bored, I just happenede to be looking for the right word... okay, I was bored. But I found some very interesting words on my endless surfing of .

1. Squirrelicide- when a squirrel bites a telephone wire and kills itself, resulting in electrical appliances not recieving information. I'm a victim of squirrelicide.
2. Bract- the tine leaves that surround the bottom of a flower, or on the stem of a flower. I never knew they had a name for that.
3. Ohrwurm- this is a word from Germany, meaning the annoying little song that got stuck in your head. This is another thing I didn't know there was a word for.
4. Zenith- the highest point.
5. Xenophobia- It means 'a strong fear or dislike of foreign people or things.' It starts with an X and is neither xylophone or x-ray, so it's automatically on the top of my list.
6. Triskadiskadecaphobia- the fear of the number thirteen.
7. Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia- fear of long words.

I first realized I had a gift when I was in second grade. I liked to read books during class, and when the teacher tried to catch me by asking a question I could answer it! I have absolutely no idea where I got this gift, because some people I'm related to can sit in the same room of a conversation doing nothing and still not hear it. So here are some tips to get your eavesdropping up to date.

1.Dress for the occasion. Blend. Or, if the person you're trying to get info from is moving, you could always dress up like a jogger for an excuse to run around (so if they try the old walk-in-a-circle thing you'll have an excuse to do the same)

2. Don't be afraid of the dark. Or small spaces. If you're in a house with children, you'll even have an excuse if you're found. Say you're playing hide-and-seek and then go do it (in case the children are asked conversationally). Even better, play hide-and-seek, then hide wherever an interesting conversation is being held.

3. mp3s are your friends! All you need is an iPod in your ears to make the world think you aren't part of it. For a bonus, you can bob your head and pretend to mouth out the song.

You can find step-by-step instructions here, and here.

'High' Fashion

“Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.” This quote struck me as funny, so I decided to look up some of the worst (and most painful) fashions of all time, which, unfortunately, weren’t done away with after only six months.

The corset. Back when women didn’t have the right to vote, corsets were all the rage. They promoted good posture and made the wearer appear slimmer. These contraptions kept the back erect (now found to cause stress on the lower back) and made it hard to breathe. This caused women to faint at the slightest shock, which was considered ‘charming.’ Girls have died from too-tight corsets causing their ribs to bend inward and puncture their lungs.

Foot-binding. In the time between the tenth and twentieth centuries, Chinese women would begin tying their daughter’s feet so they would get smaller and smaller. The binds cut off circulation and left the feet horribly deformed. The pain lasted the duration of the procedure and would come again if you were to untie the feet. Girls were reduced to tottering about slowly, but they usually just sat still.

No doubt that today you’ll be able to find even more with all the recalls going on.

Further Encoding Codes

There are plenty of other ridiculously easy ciphers to use. Unfortunately, they are also easy to crack, so here are some ways to make sure your message can only be understood by you and the person it is being sent to:

If you are using a cipher in which you replace letters with other letters or symbols, don’t use spaces or &T**U OECI&PTU can be translated into HAPPY BIRTHDAY with a bit of time and thought. You know that one is a five-letter word that way, and the other is a eight-letter word. You can also tell that the last letter is the same for both. So use a symbol or letter (and not a dash or underscore) for a space instead. If you like you could even add extra spaces to throw someone off the trail.

An easy trick is to use a different word for some words and agree on them with whoever will be using your code. For instance, to say MEET ME ON FRIDAY you could say MEET ME AT A RESTAURANT and your friend would know to meet you on Friday (if you were meeting at a restaurant, you’d most likely tell which one, right?)
You can also use floriography. If you wanted to reply to an invitation discreetly, you might write STRIPED CARNATION, which means ‘no’.
While you’re looking, you might want to see what a green rose means.

Friday, April 18, 2008

The Ivy Cipher

The ivy cipher goes as follows. First, you write down your message (as per obvious) like so:


(I write really random messages when I want to). Now you write all of the words so they are backwards, getting rid of pesky punctuation as you go.


Now put them into two rows with every other letter:


Now you have the ivy cipher. You may want to put the word ‘ivy’ inside the code somewhere, or some other codeword signifying that that’s how you make sense of it.

Strange Proposals

After reading an article about a guy who sent his girlfriend a hacked game of "Bejeweled" that would ask her to marry him when she got to a certain score (she said yes) I decided to do a little internet research on other strange ways people have proposed marriage. Here is one of my favorites:

A guy who had met his girlfriend through photography hid a picture of himself kneeling with a ring in a bouquet.

This one speaks for itself. I couldn't cut it down:

He is in the Navy Reserve and asked me to come to the reserve center to help out with a "change of command" rehearsal in the morning. I went and it seemed like I really served no purpose!

After it was over, his chief came over to me and asked if I new a certain young man by the name of Jerry. I said of course. He said, "Well he is kind of a chicken and needs our help."

Then he called him over. Jerry got down on his knee and pulled out a little black box from his uniform pocket. Then the entire unit said out loud, "Will you marry him?!"

It was so cute! Oh, and I said yes of course!! They got it all on video, too.

I just thought some of them were kind of clever.

#2 'A Bold Code'

Please excuse the lame pun, but this code involves using a bold font (or retracing the letters so they are bolder if you are writing). First you need to come up with a code. Below I have one. The stars are for none-bold print, the B's are for bold letters.

A=***** G=**BB* M=*BB** S=B**B* Y=BB***
B=****B H=**BBB N=*BB*B T=B**BB Z=BB**B
C=***B* I=*B*** O=*BBB* U=B*B**
D=***BB J=*B**B P=*BBBB V=B*B*B
E=**B** K=*B*B* Q=B**** W=B*BB*
F=**B*B L=*B*BB R=B***B X=B*BBB

Now let's say I wanted to tell my friend 'I have your book.' First I need to write a long and pointless message I can fit my code into. Since I have thirteen letters in my message, I need to multiply that by five to get a code that needs sixty-five letters or more.

The math homework is pages sixteen to twenty-seven, but only the even problems. I suggest you do the odd ones because you can check your work in the back.

Punctuation can count, but you can't tell if a space is bold, so just get rid of those in your head.

The math homework is pages sixteen to twenty-... and so on. Be warned this code takes a while or I would have done the whole message. It's also hard (for me) to keep track of which letter you're on.

Tuesday, April 15, 2008


There comes a time when anyone (well, anyone with an interesting life) would benefit from the use of codes. There are some codes like pig latin that are easy to decipher, and others that are really hard.
For the next couple weeks (or just one, depending on how many codes I find) I'm going to be talking about the second of the two types of codes.

#1 The Box Code.

This is a code in which you'll write your message in a box. For example, I'll encode 'Meet me after school in the gym.' You now have to count the letters to find what size square you'll be using. In this case there are twenty-five. In the case that your message doesn't have a perfect square for the number of letters, use a 'dummy' letter to fill in the extra space. Now I know to do a five-by-five box.


It doesn't have to look like a square. Now you go down the rows and write what it says.


You can add spaces randomly throughout the message if you want to. Now you give it to your friend. They'll count the number of letters and can put it in the same square, this time writing the letters down in columns.

*WARNING* Make sure your friend KNOWS about the code or they'll have just as much trouble deciphering it as They Who May Not Read The Message.

Could you imagine getting an F in flirting?

Singapore, anxious of the city's declining birth rate, is now giving students formal lessons on how to flirt. If that sounds weird the first time, read it again. The course includes love song analysis and how to chat online. On one hand, the students can talk about their boyfriends/girlfriends to a teacher that (hopefully) knows what they're talking about. On the other hand, who would WANT to talk to their teacher?

People have too much time on their hands...

By chance, I found this article online. Admittedly, it made me laugh out loud, but I can't imagine someone being bored enough to analyze cartoons like that and LIST all that.

And if you ever have too much time on your hands, try googlewhacking. That's when you type random words into a search engine and try to come up with one result. It's harder than it looks. I typed in 'random invisible turtle' and actually got at least a pageful of links! If you find one, please tell me!

Baby Born with Two Faces

A baby named Lali was born in India with a very strange face--she has two of them. It's called craniofacial duplication. Though it is commonly (not too commonly, however) linked to health issues, the baby is doing fine. She drinks from both mouths and opens all four eyes. In fact, she lives a perfectly normal life as "up to 100 people have been visiting Lali at her home every day to touch her feet in respect, offer money, and receive blessings."

Perfectly normal. You can see a picture of her here if you'd like.

Breathtaking! (But not really...)

This frog has no lungs. So is it an amphibian or a fish? Or a missing link? These questions and more will (not) be answered by clicking this

Science knows everything.

And because I can't help but take a whack at animal testing: Guess what? Scientiest have found that putting animals in uncomfortable situations tends to make them aggressive. Because I couldn't have figured that out when I accidentally stepped on my dog and he bit me.

Poor little Alex (yes I named him/her!)

This is probably the worst thing I’ve heard in a long time. I’ve heard they’re trying to make chickens without feathers and cows without legs, but this is ridiculous. They’re making cow-people. Sure, they just have an embryo, but sooner or later they’ll want to figure out what it looks like.
Can you imagine being some little kid that goes to school with floppy ears and an udder? But he/she probably won’t go to school and he/she will spend his/her whole life in a cage. He/she probably won’t be able to talk or read or write because he/she has no education. And that’s only if the thing makes it past its first few days without self-destructing.
We need to write angry letters, people!

A Cat of a Different Color

These cats weren't born this way: they were painted, and it costs 15,000 dollars to get this done. And every three months, their owners pay $15,000 more to get it redone after their fur has grown out. Is it real, or an elaborate hoax? You can decide that for yourself. But if it is real, these owners are paying top dollar so the neighborhood cats can laugh, "Look at Fluffy. What a weirdo!"

Hey, it’s me, Invisible Turtle. If you read Ananka’s blog (can be found at then you might recognize me, as I usually try and post random, rambling comments that somehow or another relate to the matters of the blog. I have also once or twice commented on Fang’s blog.
But now I got my own one, and I am stoked (which is a old word! Yay old words!) so you might be wondering who I am.
I am an invisible turtle. Seriously…
You don’t believe me? Too bad!
In addition to being an invisible turtle, I can fly, type, talk, and know random assorted facts of wonder!
