Happy Halloween!

Technically, it was yesterday, but I really wanted to wish my followers (and everyone else) a happy Halloween!

Last year, I was stupid and insane and I didn’t show you my Halloween costume. (*slaps past self in the face repeatedly*) So, here’s a (slightly awkward) picture of me in my Batgirl of Burnside costume.

Minus my weird expression, it’s pretty cool, right?

Now, let’s go to my costume.

I dressed as…my hero…my idol…the best book character in the universe…you can probably guess who it is now….*drumroll*…



Now, I have LOTS (meaning three) pictures!!


Here’s a selfie I took. I chose the greenish filter to try to make it look like the illustrations in The Search for WondLa.


The Omnipod I fashioned from a mini mirror, a popsicle stick, lots of duct tape, and some mini sticky pearl things. Too bad there’s no Gym Buddy…


And finally, this is the whole costume, complete with sneakboats, patches, and a satchel (that later got stuffed with candy and coated with dust from a Pixi Stick with a broken wrapper). Isn’t it awesome?

And, I have one more thing to share before I go…


She’s a 13-week old Ruddy Abyssinian, and we named her Hobbes! She’s super sweet, sassy,  and fierce (for a tiny kitten) (but hard to do your math homework around).



*in Mr. Burgermeister voice* Isn’t she adorable?

Well, I hope you all had an awesome Halloween and ate lots of candy! Bye!

Did anyone else get the Frankenweenie reference I just made? If you did, ten (hypothetical)  points for awesomeness.



Book Review Tuesday (11/1/16)-Awkward

Hi guys! Happy November and (Day One) of the Day of the Dead! I ate a sugar skull yesterday in Spanish class 💀

Anyway, this was a great graphic novel that pretty much everyone will (and should) love!61yATZrvzjL._SX346_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg


Peppi Torres is the new kid at Berrybrook Middle School. On her first day, she trips and is noticed by Jaime, who is frequently teased, in the hall, the mean kids start calling her names. So, she has no choice…but to shove Jaime away. Trying to forget about the incident, she joins the school’s art club, and is immediately washed up in their war with the science club. Can the art club stand triumphant over their rival  and get their comic published in the school newspaper? And can she work things out with Jaime?


I’m pretty sure this is the first graphic novel I’ve read since Ghosts (see Book Review Tuesday, 9/20/16), and I liked almost just as much! The art was great, the story was great, the characters were hilarious, and Jaime Thompson looks suspicioulsy like my brother did when he was in 6th Grade…*

To give you a little idea, here’s a section I thought was SUPER FUNNY!

Have a great November!


*I would show his picture from then, but he’d probably murder me a thousand times if I did.
