Congrats to all my nominees!
I had a great Christmas yesterday. In the morning, me and my brother sat up in our mum and dad’s room with a cup of tea, and opened our stockings.
I got a disc of my favourite band- Tallest Man On Earth! I got a LEGO Minifigure from the new series (9)! And I got some ‘choices’ dark chocolates!
After breakfast, we went into the living room, and opened some of our other presents. I got The LEGO Batcave and Orc Forge, which I absolutely can’t wait to build!!! We also saved a few presents each to open later!
I loved Christmas this year. We were all in a good mood, and had a laugh and a joke. And you might have a laugh also when you hear this:
Last Christmas, Mum got a reddish brown scarf from Gran. As much as she liked it, it was just too big, and she eventually donated it to the charity shop…
This year, Mum and her friends agreed that they would each get each others presents from charity shops this Christmas, just for fun. Mum began to dig into the wrapping paper of her last present. And guess what she found inside. The same scarf she had got for Christmas just last year!!!!!!
At About 11, we drove to Gran and Granddad’s house for a roast lunch! From Gran And Grandad, we received “The Battle Of Helm’s Deep”. one of my favourite sets of all time! (This set might even take me more time than I took building Endor! )
We also got some luscious marzipan fruits, and Just Dance 4, which I really wanted. After we’d opened our presents, we helped Gran with the roast lunch. Chopping carrots, beans, broccoli, cauliflower, setting thew table, putting things in the oven. And then it was time to eat!!!! The vegetables were soft (and expertly chopped ), the chicken was nice, and the chicken leg was buttery and delicious! The mash was crispy, and the roast potatoes were cooked to absolute perfection. It was delicious!!! I think, however, I might’ve had just a little bit too much to eat

At home, me and Rafe built the Orc Forge, which is an awesome set. I absolutely love the winch and the light brick is awesome! After a light dinner (still full up from the afternoon’s roast lunch), we watched the strictly come dancing Christmas Special. It was okay, but I felt the judges would give a few nines and a ten regardless of how well the couple danced. Or was it a bonus +3 marks to the score for Christmas??

Here are some of my favorite songs lately! Enjoy!
Bats In The Attic, a beautiful and emotive song! Please listen!
Never Quite Free, an upbeat and also emotive song! I <3 it!
Kids On The Run… Just lovely!
One of my favourite songs at the moment is The Tallest Man On Earth’s “Kids On The Run”. Yesterday, I decided to draw a piece of art to go with the beautiful, emotional song. Inspired to draw what I thought the song meant using the riddle of beautiful lyrics of the song.
Here is my finished piece:
Now, I think this song is about two lovers who are both married, but had an affair.
Let me describe what all of these images above mean. And how I interpreted the song.
Bottom Left: The Golden Fields of Corn Are Turning White.
“Where the promise to lead what is right
As we both know how fields will turn white”
I think this means the marriage has gone cold. That the two lovers no longer love their husband and wife… that they love each other.
Bottom Right: A Ring With Glinting Jewels.
This simply symbolizes marriage, as both the lover’s are married. But the ring looks stranded, abandoned. This is how the marriage is.
Left: Two shadows reach out to each other through a black void to touch their ringed hands together.
This symbolizes perhaps the bondage that cannot be. They reach out, but cannot quite reach each other.
Left: (Above) An eye welling with tears.
Inspired by my favorite two verses (or stanzas) of the song:
“And the reflections in their eyes
Sure could paint us as killers
Oh, I’ll be there.
And til the terror of our time
Could forgive us as lovers
Oh, lets break some hearts”
Right: A Golden Sun Shining Across The Black Hills
Inspired by these lines:
“Oh meet me when the morning fails on the fields of desire
Oh meet me when I lost my part in the choir of dusk”
Top Left: Two flames licking each others fiery wisps.
“When we’re feeding fire with the flames til no memories gone”
Top Right: An icy breath of air over a black black storm cloud.
This cloud is a symbol of darkness. And the wisp symbolizes the cold sky.
“And the cold sky will write us a song
But will we ever confess what we’ve done?
Guess we’re still kids on the run”
Yesterday, I had this Wii (JUST DANCE) dance competition with a friend called Bryony. Now, I thought she was going to absolutely thrash me at every song. We took it in turns to choose songs. She first picked Rihanna S.O.S. I got 10,030 and she got 9100! I was so amazed that I had beaten her! Then, I chose Holiday. And I beat her at that too! And the next song! And the next! But then, maybe I got a bit too overconfident ‘cos I then lost to her on “Jump” by 3000!!
What sort of scores do you average on Just Dance?
In the corner of the dark, dark pantry
Lies the jar. Glowing bright
In the shadows of the looming shelves
Sitting. So innocent. Calling.
Shooting waves of temptation
Pulsing, growing, as it tilts towards you.
Drones “Resistance is futile”
Oozing into your thoughts…
Oozing into your bowl
Peanut Satay; the pure streams of heaven
Flowing through the centre of a date
Soothing, it touches your hungry lips
Like fresh rain trickling onto a flower’s buds
As you close your eyes you seem to float
Like a cloud… drifting through the pure streams of heaven.
Wow! Another award!
Thanks so much to DaleCooper57 for nominating me for this awesome award! Please check out his blog!
Here are the bloggers that I chose to nominate:
This award is a bit different to some others, and I’ve never been awarded it before. What you have to do is:
What made you start your blog?
Oh. Hard question! I’ve had blogs before and I’ve really enjoyed doing them. So I decided to start this one. At first, I did it just for my Batamon cards, but then I just started to share everything with my friends on the blog!
How did you pick your theme?
It was one of the top themes, so I chose about of about three or four themes. I liked this one because it was simple, and looked sort of like a scrapbook, which, you could say, is what my blog is.
What band would you join if you could?
Either Mountain Goats or Hot Chip. These are two of my favourite bands at the moment.
What new ending would you give a movie, and why?
This is really hard, because all movies that I’ve watched have been classics, and have the best endings you could possibly think up. But, I’ll have a go! Star Wars- I think Darth Vader should have lived on, and become a Jedi master. Or maybe in the Robin Hood BBC Series, Robin Hood shouldn’t have died. He got poisoned, but his merry men had already healed him from several other poisons. So, It’s sort of a bit weird.
What animal would you bring back from extinction, and why?
A do-do, because they’re just so awesome!
