I smell pasta :)

** 12.00 pm, Saturday **

hola, I'm back and finished with the washing. Mum and dad are having pasta sauce, on toast me thinks.... I am sitting here ( in the Snuggly Ugg-lies ) Listening to my iPod. I recently went through the entire computers music files and got heaps of old stuff I hadn't put on my new (less than a year old) iPod. Song playing at the moment is....

Sugar Water - Cibo Matto. Its off the Buffy Soundtrack, and is quite hilarious. The girl is singing about 'riding on a camel, that has big eyes ' its priceless. At first listen, it is quite crap, but it grows on you !90's ALERT! The song is from season 1. When Buffy is sexy dancing with  Xander. :P Check it out... ( this vid is live, so the sound quality is a bit shot, but still )

Oooh, maddy brought home a box of Country Cheese biscuits! I used to always eat them at nan and pops. I went to grab a stack but than dads all ' take two ' so im annoyed, coz they are about the only good thing to eat in the pantry at the moment. Ho hum. 

In the meantime, i have started on a new book! Even though i just finished Three Wishes yesterday, I really have nothing better to do. ( you can read about Three Wishes in my post Its Raining its Pouring ) The new book is Extras, by Scott Westerfeld. It's pretty good,  I'll post the blurb... It is the fourth book in its series, so if you want the full picture maybe start at the start, as it gets a bit confusing ( this is my first time reading this series ) 

It's a few years after rebel Tally Youngblood took down the uglies/pretties/specials regime. Without those strict roles and rules, the world is in a complete cultural renaissance. "Tech-heads" flaunt their latest gadgets, "kickers" spread the dirt about gossip and trends, and "surge monkeys" are hooked on extreme plastic surgery. And it's all monitored on a bazillion different cameras. The world is like a gigantic game of American Idol. Whoever is getting the most buzz gets the most votes. Popularity rules.

As if being fifteen doesn't suck enough, Anya Fuse's rank of 451,369 is so low, she's a total nobody. An extra. Her only chance to escape extra-land is to find a big story to kick- something wild and unexpected.

Then Anya meets a clique of girls who pull crazy tricks, yet are deeply secretive of it. But the Sly Girls are hiding something bigger - an explosive discovery that may change the face of the brave new world forever. If Anya kick this story, she'll be propelled into the world of fame, celebrity ... and extreme danger. A world she's not prepared for. 

So its pretty hardcore, but I'm enjoying it. Incase you're wondering, the first three books are




So ladies and gents, there are the books... 

I can't really think of much more to write at the moment, except for the fact that i am in desperate need of social interaction, and that i need more buffy discs to watch!! and now, i might go see if i can find something to eat in this house!

Till next post.
