Cider’s Strange Story

January 31, 2010

Hello there my name is Cider, I had a very strange summer.  You see after Fideo and Ella (my mom and dad) and I returned from our annual summer camping trip we found out my great-aunt (from my father’s side) had just died and he had inherited her mansion. I had only met this great-aunt, once when I was a baby.

My parents don’t want me calling them “Mom” and “Dad” they want me to call them by their first names because this family is very strange. So after we found out great-aunt March had left the house to Fideo, we started packing up the house to move to the mansion. Then when we got there, Fideo said: “Cider, there is a nursery on the third floor of the house. When Ella and I are cleaning up the house to make it into a boarding school. You should stay in the nursery O.K.?” I replied: “Yes, Fideo I will stay in the nursery”.

So I went inside and went up to the nursery and discovered a dusty big blue hardcover book. Did I mention that when Fideo was a child, he and his brothers and sisters had to share the nursery?  There was a rocking chair too in the nursery. So I picked up the book and sat down in the rocking chair and opened it and started reading it.

Then suddenly there was a flash of light and the next thing I knew was I was in the middle of “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer”. Then what seems like hours later Ella calls: “Cider, where are you?” and I got out of the book and said: “Ella, I’m in the nursery because Fideo said I shouldn’t be in your way.”  Ella responded: “Okay but supper will be ready in a bit.”

I returned to the mysterious book and landed myself in “Oliver Twist”. Then supper was ready and I had to leave my book. Both times it seemed like hours but it wasn’t it was only ten minutes from literally falling in to being “called out of the book.”The next day I fell into the more famous known Shakespeare plays. Then I fell into “Pride and Prejudice”, “Jane Erye”, and  “Robin Hood”.  On the last day of summer I fell into Louisa May Alcott’s “The Little Women” , “Good Wives”, and “Jo’s Boys”.

During recess a girl and ask: “My name is Sara. Would you like to be my friend?” I replied: “OK. My name is Cider, I would love to have a friend because I’m new in the area.” Sara asked: “On Friday can I come over for a sleep over?”. (I asked my mom that night)  and she said yes and then the next day I answered Sara. Then Friday came and Sara come over and we started reading the book and the flash of light and I said: “Oh no not again!”

The End

Toy Story 1 scene

January 24, 2010

Am I reading too much into these scenes: In the scenes early on when the toys are gathering for a “staff meeting”/Woody getting behind the “podium”  does the mousetrap game box (on the shelf behind Woody/in front of the toys)  foreshadowing what is going to happen in the very near future?

New Sims 3 Legacy idea!

January 14, 2010

My legacy idea is the same as Pinstar’s rules  (if you choose for guidelines) except the founder,  heirs/ heiress (spouses are the exception)  must have names of  diseases/ illnesses (you choose)  we can get today/could have gotten in the old days.  For an addition changelle try to do it from A-Z  of illness/diseases.   I got the idea from someone’s sim daughter being called Malady in the story Daughter of a Rockstar. SOMEONE PLEASE TRY THIS!

But I will doubt anyone will try it at all.

I think there should be board games in Sims 3.

January 9, 2010

There could be simish spoofs of popular board games like Monopoly, The Game of Life, Clue, Scrabble, etc. You order/command one of your sims over to where the simish-board games are on shelves or piled up and choose one of the games there and there will be a pop-up menu asking “whole family or two people?” and you will pick either whole family or just one other person. Before the family buys a dog, the family or two of the sims would be able to play the game on the floor. After the family buys a dog, the family or the two sims could use the dining table as a place to play the game (or get pieces knocked over/swallowed by the dog) if playing on floor.

We Want a Peaceful World

January 8, 2010

If we want peace in this world, we need to stop having wars. We also need to stop sending our surplus food over to countries like Haiti and Africa. When we do that they are stuck using their land for stuff like coffee, cotton, cocoa, and rubber (cash crops) and can’t use any of their own land for their own food. That means they go hungry because they can’t afford the food we “give” them. That means they leave their land to “the women” and other male relatives to take care when they go to the cities to try to get a job there and is fruitless because a lot of other farmers are doing the exactly the same.

That the story of how Haiti became so poor. They were dairy farmers and sold milk between themselves. One day some country exported dairy from that country  and that made the Haitian farmers’ milk became expensive and that why they went to the city to find jobs and it was fruitless and many could only find part-time jobs .

We also need to be open minded of other races and religions. What did Martin Luther King Jr. say in his I HAVE A DREAM speech during the Civil Rights movement? He said “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. One day right there in Alabama, little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.”  We might not live in Alabama or the United States but the same still applies to the whole world. Another part of his speech said:  And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Afriacan-American spiritual, “Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!” That is almost true with Obama being president in the United States. We should allow our immigrants to get the job they are qualified for and not be stuck with jobs like taxi drivers. Our countries should not send our auto industry jobs down to Mexico or the country’s businesses outsourcing their telecenters to China and other Asian places. Henry Ford once said: There is one rule for industrialists and that is: make the best quality of goods possible at the lowest cost possible, wages possible” . Also they should hear this saying “See the forest for the trees”. They need to understand the cycle of economy and how the government  works.

Note: sorry for offending anyone if I did.
