Tsunami


A tsunami warning was issued for New Zealand and other small Pacific islands after a major 8.3 magnitude quake struck in the ocean off American Samoa, U.S. government agencies said on Tuesday.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center , a branch of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, issued a tsunami warning for Hawaii, Papua New Guinea and other Pacific Islands after the quake hit about 120 miles southwest of the remote Pacific island of American Samoa. It struck at a depth of 20.5 miles.

The bulletin estimated a tsunami, if powerful enough to reach Hawaii, would reach the island state approximately 1 p.m. local time (7 p.m. ET). But it was just downgraded to a warning, but advice that no one should be alowed to go into the water at this time.

Open Book, Pride and Prejudice (Still on my computer)

Open Book: Painting a smile with words. To Finnish off the book i found these two last quotes that i really liked both stated by Elizabeth Bennet, but of course written by Jane Austen.


Title: Pride and Prejudice
Author: Jane Austen
Chapter: 56
"You may ask questions, which i shall not choose to answer."
Chapter: 58
"Think only of the past as its remembrance gives you pleasure."

Primeval To Return!


I am very excited with the news that Primeval will return. After seeing the last episode of season 3 i was very sad on how it ended but i am so relived that it is going to return.
BBC and UKTV have joined forces to bring back the series. ITV1 was going to axe to series due to budgetary reasons but now things have changed and is said to come back with two new series coming out to a total of 13 episodes. Which is not as much as before but is still something. It is scheduled for 2011 and Adrian Hodges will again oversee the production and the former stars Hannah Spearritt, Andrew Lee Potts, Ben Miller, and Jason Flemyng are to return.

Look what i made

I love making fake (of course) covers for books. I just started, by being inspired by the blog "Reading Keeps You Sane). You just find a picture of yours or from the computer Maybe from:


http://www.flickrcc.bluemountains.net/index.php

And then you edit your picture and type in a fake name and author maybe editing somewhere like this: http://www.picnik.com/

One of the favorites that i have made is this


I made it a little different by creating the border across for the tittle and a space below for the author.

More Pirates





Well we have this new news about Pirates of the Caribbean 4. I am super excited, though for me is such a let down that they are making one with out Will and Elizabeth. I at least wanted a better ending to number 3, something better i thought would be nice.



But the title is going to be On Stranger Tides and as the picture above says it is going to open in 2011 in the US.
It will mostly be about Jack Sparrow who is still to be played by Johnny Depp.

Some Pictures and Video of What I Saw For Two Weeks

This day i just loved the sky, it was so blue and gorgeous!! A lovely day
The first few days i was loving the rain and then this day was like one of the first days it was sunny and i also enjoyed the day at the beach for a few hours. I used to come here as a kid and it just looked so different i could not believe it.

So good, the best Limeade i have ever tasted!! So good, sour, sweet, and creamy but not. (It just felt creamy in your mouth.)


Going for a walk and the way the sun made it a bit through the clouds was awesome.




And i know every ones seen cows but i just thought these were so cute. My sisters walk passes a cow grazing field.





Another beautiful day at the beach!






Same day..

Up

UP, i saw it in the cinema and personally i thought it was very cute. The animation was very good and very kiddy for kids and very cute for teens and adults. I saw it with my nephew and he liked it also, sometimes shouting in the cinema and laughing with the other people. It is though a little sad for a children's movie but it was also lighthearted in other aspects. I would see it again.

Some Performance's

Well i saw some very good, cool, and interesting performance's. Beyonce's song was very very good. Her dancing and her back up dancers were all very entertaining. The Michal Jackson tribute was also cool. The way the dancers completely followed his dances and Janet's song was very good. Pink's whole performance was one of my favorite. It was creative and amazing to watch and listen to. Taylor Swift's song at the station live in New York was cool and the whole thing made me think of broad way in NY. Oh and Lady GaGa's Performance was interestingly cool. It was different and the set was very cool i thought, though she did switch up her song in the live performance. It doesn't normally sound like that. And i got to talk about her outfits or at least two. Wow that is a good costume for some one! Wow! they are all pretty strange, but i did get a good laugh out of them. Wowwww!!!

A very fun show!








Just look at them!

P.S


Russell Brand Did a fantastic job hosting this year. Last year boy i thought he was bloody fired, but he really tried turned it around and was still his funny self and still cautious about what he said. Also to keep the show on a positive note when stuff that was poorly done was broad casted for everyone to see. I really did like this years show, it was vastly entertaining!

MTV: 2009 VMA's

Wow, Oh my God!!! This year was yet another interesting VMA's. I just can't believe Kanye West would do such a thing. Well i guess he would but i didn't actually think he would do it to Taylor Swift. I love her and she i think handled it so well, but that is such a jurkish move he made. So bad! Very bad! And to say Beyonce should of won in front of a live audience is just not the thing to do. He could think it but he didn't need to say it. Though i really wanted to cry when Beyonce called her up and let her Finnish her acceptance speech. A good ending to the night, though no one will forget what he did. I am very Anti Kanye West right now.

Vaca

It is so nice to be on vacation!! Or at least take a little while off from reality. I think just this little time of freeness is good for all the pressure. That's why i have to take a vac every few months or I'll blow up. It doesn't need to be a long or expensive getaway but just even a little alone time.
Well i bring this up because i might be a little slow on my posting but when i come back to reality i hope to catch up on all that i missed.

Sincerely BOstan~

Open Book: Pride and Prejudice


Open Book: Painting a smile with words as bright as a field of yellow flowers. I think one of the persuasions to read Pride and Prejudice or any book of Austen's is to read the quotes and conversation. Their are just so many quotes that i can pick from this book.


Title: Pride and Prejudice
Author: Jane Austen
Chapter:5
"Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us."
Chapter:6
"A lady's imagination is very rapid; it jumps form admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment. I knew you you would be wishing me joy."
