AS SWEET AS THE ROSE~
[A riddle from the Fiji Islands]
There is a box: Goods are continually poured into it, yet it is never full.
It is not unusual for a child to get up earlier than his parents. Maybe it isn't exactly that they wake up before their parents than just when their young minds are fully conscious they decide to get up unlike the parents who try to sleep in until they absolutely have to get up. It also is not unusual for a child to wake up their parents after they get up, demanding breakfast and saying things like, "Mommy, I want peanut butter on my toast," or "Daddy, can we have pancakes now? You promised," and other similar things.
A little five-year-old boy called Edward woke his parents up one Saturday morning, but it was not to get them for breakfast. His little mind had been working all night long and now it was almost overloaded with questions.
His mother Penelope was awaken by the noisy c

Now, it was a common fact
Among Southern blacks,
That you could sell your soul at a crossroads.
You'd just sit on a fence,
Like it was a bench,
And wait til midnight, when the Devil would show.
There once was a man named Robert,
(Couldn't play a lick on the guitar...)
Who sat one night at 49th and 61st,
To watch the passing cars.
Right about then,
Two hours past ten,
Is when Lucifer burst up, then jaunted in...
And he proposed a deal,
(One you couldn't refuse)
To the young man named Robert Johnson.
"I'll give you money, women and fame,
In exchange for your puny ole soul...
Makin' you happy,
Helpin' some folks,
That's my eternal goal."
Robert Looked at the Devil.
Then he looked at his shoes.
(He didn't know how to feel...)
Then he saw his guitar case, sitting nearby,
And proposed a new kind of deal:
"In this day and age, with these new record players,
Any loser can become a star!
No, the only way that you're getting my soul,
Is if you teach me to play the guitar."

How to write an exciting blog in 10 easy steps!
1: Live an exciting life and write about that. If you don't have a great life, make up stuff you COULD have done during the day.
2: Update atleast once per day. You don't get those all important pageviews if people don't come back every day.
3: Provoke your readers. Politics is a great way to do that. If you live in the US; write about why you support Bin Laden. If you live anywhere else; write about why you support Bush. If that fails you can pretend to have homophobia, hate _all_ animals, be a racist or become a nazi.
4: Tell about your sexlife. If you don't have one, make one up. The more sexpartners, the better.
5: Write horrible things about your friends, family and coworkers. Don't leave anything out!
6: Take and post a lot of pictures, often. Clothes are no good, try to aviod those. If you don't own a camera you should steal other peoples pictures. You should atleast get a webcam to show off yourself, and your cat/dog/whatev

Chapter 4: Wish Fulfillment
I got up and looked at the small little dragon as it shook the remains of the shattered eggshell of itself. I backed up and stepped on an old dry leaf. The dragon instantly whipped around and faced me. Our eyes locked. I wanted to turn and run, but something in the way those eyes stared at me held me firmly in place. Without warning, the dragon leaped onto me with such force that I fell over backwards. To my amazement, it did not hurt me, but began licking my face all over. Once I was thoroughly covered in drool, it got off and let me up. Not knowing what to do, I just stood there looking at the dragon confused. It saw this, and its little head dropped, a look of sheer sadness upon its face.
You dont remember me, do you?
I was confused. I liked dragons a lot, but never did I imagine seeing one up close, and this one was a little too real for comfor

Flare awoke the next morning on his living room floor to hear voices talking over him. They werent his parents, but someone elses, and there were a lot of them. He cautiously opened one eye a crack, and instantly shut it. He was completely surrounded by animals, and not just his house pets, but wild ones as well. Flare wondered why his dogs hadnt protected him whats more the voices seemed to be coming from the animals. Josie, the most faithful of his dogs, was lying on the floor beside him. A stag was talking to her, and apparently the conversation was about him.
How do we know hes the chosen one for sure? He looks like any regular human to me.
He was lifted clear off the ground by a comet of pure light. If thats not a sign, then I dont know what is. Wait, shh. Listen, his breathings changed. I think hes awake.

I stood out on the top of some ancient rusted steel steps but couldn't see anyone. But I looked down and there were footprints of water that made their whole way down the stairs. Did Mr Hedge come down this way? Well either that or he can teleport.
I looked around and couldn't see anyone, but even so I began making my way down the steps, but out of nowhere the step below me was so rusted my foot fell through and I fell, my knees whacking them right off the step below me.

I didn't bother going to school on Friday, and I didn't go to Mr Hedge's house on that day either nor Saturday and I wasn't planning to go today which was Sunday. It's because I was just so irritated with him now and also just because I just couldn't face him right now, now after what I shouted out and how he .how he rejected me .

Flippy's black pac-man pupils stared at the shy, red porcupine sitting alone in the small corner of a booth, silently eating her strawberry ice-cream. He came into Cro-Marmot's ice cream parlor to enjoy a nice, cold chocolate ice-cream, but his appetite disappeared once he caught a glimpse of her. He was just sitting at the bar, watching.

Fare was not your average 14 year old boy. No matter what he did, no one would accept him for who he was. Sure, you could blame it on the fact that he was a four-eyed brace-face looser who did nothing but watch T.V., surf the web, and play video games. But the real problem lied deeper than that. The real problem was his personality. He was what most people would call "immature". Although he was 14 and in fact was mature, he had a deep, burning, passionate obsession, Dragons. Of course everyone teased him about it, but he didn't mind. He was more of a loner himself and liked his space. If he could he would much rather hang out with his pets and talk to them instead. He always felt so awkward in large groups of people, but seeemed to feel right at home with animals.

"What happened? Did you hurt yourself? You've got a skateboard did you fall off it?"
I blinked. She was so caring, and worried about me. But why? I have hardly had any contact with her and hate her soul and yet she wants to help me out.
