Some of you might have heard that Simply AG Magazine is closing down temporarily. I was disappointed when I saw it. I decided then that I would have my own AG magazine. I started it yesterday and I am sending out an eight (I don't have a lot to put in there yet) page magazine right now.

Mara, Kyanna, and Harmonie are all sisters and Sage-Lin and Reena are Chinese twins (my life is literally turning Chinese). We get extra credit if we use unusual names and if we use the following words: pugnatious, ostentatious, scowl, wince, futile, jollification, or metamorph. We have a limit of three typed pages or five written pages. This is going to be a fun contest.

I have recently become interested with force lightning. I found out about it while watching Star Wars VI: Return of the Jedi. When Corsicapeace (had to take out her name for this post) and I started writing Star wars plays we knew we wanted to include it. Unfortunately, a couple of months ago we had written ten plays with some containing force lightning. I was researching force lightning and found out that we had a problem. Our plays that we had worked on half the summer were inaccurate! I did some revising of the ones that we hadn't acted out and everything is okay now. I am not writing this to tell you about how I had to revise plays but to teach you about force lightning.
Force lightning is a force ability. It is also known as sith lightning as it was most often used by members of the sith. It sends electricity through someone's body using your hand or fingertips. The more skilled you were with it, the more the bolts would branch out. The more it branched out, the more people you could target. You are unable to dodge force lightning, but powerful Jedi could block it with their lightsabers. Yoda was able to absorb and redirect force lightning using his hands. One short bolt could result in unconsciousness for the victim or death. There are short and long term effects to the user and victim. It deforms the victim and can lead to brain damage, blindness, or being crippled for life. Humans will usually have small seizures all over their body due to a drop in blood minerals. You could avoid some long term effects with complete bed rest and proper treatment. As for the user, it could drain their energy, deform them, and possibly burn holes in their hand. People on the light side could learn to use force lightning if they wanted to. Most Jedi Councils didn't allow it however. There are many different variations of force lightning.
There are a couple of things that you might not have understood if you have seen Star Wars VI. First of all, if force lightning can kill quickly then how come Luke Skywalker didn't die after a short amount of time of being hit with it by Emperor Palpatine? The reason was that Luke was the last of the Jedi and the emperor decided to slowly kill him to watch the last of the Jedi suffer (there is something wrong with the emperor). Also, how come Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker dies? When Anakin (this act made him become his old self again) was throwing the emperor down the reactor chasm some of the force lightning hit him. Because of that his breathing circuit was messed up and he died.
I hope you enjoyed learning about force lightning.

Kit: Aren't you always our server, Ruthie?
Ruthie: Yes, but that is beside the point. Now you made me forget my speech!
Chrissa: You've been to plenty of restaurants before. What do they usually say?
Ruthie: Thank you Chrissa. Let me start again. Hello everyone. My name is Ruthie and I will be your server today. May I start you off with some drinks?
Kit: What if we said no?
Kit: Okay, okay, I would like some Lemonade.
Ruthie: We don't have any.
Kit: Then I'll have some milk.
Ruthie: We don't have any of that either.
Kit: Then what DO you have?
Kit: Is that all?
Kit: Then why did you ask us what we wanted?
Ruthie: I didn't ask you what you wanted to drink. I asked you if you would like to start off with drinks.
Chrissa: That will be fine. Just bring out two waters.
Ruthie: Two waters coming right up.
-five minutes later-
Ruthie: Here are your waters.
Chrissa: Thank you, Ruthie.
Ruthie: Would you like an appetiser or are you ready to order your main course?
Chrissa: We are ready to order our main course. I'll have the classic bistro burger. I want just meat, lettuce, and cheese on it.
Kit: I would like the tic-tac-toe pizza. Don't give me the whole pizza this time.
Ruthie: Then how much pizza do you want?
Kit: Just one-fourth of the pizza.
Ruthie: Your meal will be coming soon.
-ten minutes later-
Ruthie: Here is your food. Enjoy!
Kit: They have enlarged the pizza since we were last here. This is as big as the whole pizza I got last time.
Chrissa: You sure do have a lot of pizza. Maybe next time you should get the classic bistro burger like me.
Kit: Well, I guess I'll just eat on it for a couple of days.
Chrissa: Just remember to save room for dessert!
-after the meal-
Ruthie: Would you like some dessert.
Kit: You know we would.
Chrissa: We would each like a double dark chocolate cookie.
Ruthie: Will do!
-five minutes later-
Ruthie: Here are your cookies and your bill. Thank you for eating at Cafe Claire.

Chapter 1: The Two Inventor Girls
Hey! Who says boys are better at inventing then girls?! I'll tell you one thing. Arie and Skylar were better inventors then most professionally trained inventors let alone boys their age. And now, these two complete opposite friends were fixing to invent their biggest invention yet. A ship that would take them to the farthest reaches of the galaxy and... Well, let me start from the beginning.
Arie and Skylar had been friends for as long as they could remember, as long as their parents could remember, as long as anyone in the whole neighborhood could remember. They were great companions but yet total opposites. Skylar had long, solid, flowing brown-blond hair; Arie had solid medium grown hair cut to her chin with lots of layers. Skylar was graceful and elegant; Arie was reckless, wild, and randomly crazy. Skylar was an excellent dancer and very flexible; Arie was more into running and playing large games with lots of kids then fancy dancing. Despite their differences, they both loved reading, writing, inventing, and Star Wars which often inspired their inventions. They were planning to visit a Star Wars planet, that is, if they could decide which one.
"Did you check the hyperdrive yet?" asked Skylar. "I'm working on it!" came a muffled yell from under the massive rocket. There was loud clanking noise and the next moment Arie emerged happily. "She's ready to go, captain," she said with a mocking grin. "Oh, be quiet!" said Skylar. "You know as well as I do that your gonna be the one driving this thing," she declared. "I'm going to navigate," she beamed proudly. "Yeah, you better because I can't handle all those fragile little instruments," Arie answered. "THAT'S because you don't have the patience," stated Skylar matter-of-factly. "You're no one to talk," said Arie. "Fine, but at least I have more patience then you," said Skylar in a slightly whiny voice. "Oh, who cares?! Come one, let's rock this hunk of metal!" They boarded the ship and blasted off... to somewhere.
How did you like it? I might release some more of the chapters on another day. You never know, I might release one of our Star Wars plays one day. I do know one thing for sure. Corsicapeace and I can't stop writing different pieces of literature. Whether it is plays, books, or poetry we will continue writing.

Halloween isn't till Sunday but trick or treating happened Thursday. I handed out silly bands with Emily. We still dressed up but it got really cold so we put on coats. I was Princess Leia when she is at Cloud City in episode 5 (the Empire Strikes Back). Emily was a monkey human which is not very helpful for my apologetics argument on discovery news (I'm against evolution).
The apologetics argument is going alright. I am now doing it on two different post on discovery news. I finally got the question that I possibly considered ending up with. "How old are you really?" I had already told them that I was a kid but never my real age. I simply told them that I was not allowed to share my age over the computer and that I was younger than a teenager. I wonder how they will respond to that.

Ruthie: Diana Barry from Anne of Green Gables
Kit: Amy March from Little Women
In case you are wondering about Chrissa's quote that I said, I say it mostly to Emily. I found out what diplomatic meant (dealing with sensitive matters) when I needed to find out what it meant for a quiz (not for school).
Diana Barry says the quote when she comes to say good bye to Anne. It was hard to find a good quote that she said. One problem with Ruthie's costume was that Ruthie has brown black hair and not raven black like Diana.
Amy and Meg are both similar in Little Women so it is no wonder that Emily and Meghan thought that Kit was Meg. Of course Meg didn't have blond hair while Amy did. Amy said the quote in the first chapter while Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy are sitting around the fire talking about their problems with not having any presents for Christmas.

First of all, I will clear up the fact of proof. YOU CANNOT PROVE ANYTHING. Have I made myself clear? Probably not. Let me use an illustration. Let's say that your mom has made you supper. Do you know if the food has poison in it or not? Of course you don't! You do have evidence though. You have eaten your mom's food before and you haven't died. Your family isn't dead after they have taken a bite. But you still don't know if your mom put poison in just your food. You could take your food to a science lab. They could run tests on it and a week and a lot of money later they might tell you that your food does not have poison in it. Still, you would have to take the scientist's word for it. They could show you the evidence, but you STILL would have to trust the evidence. We do not live by proof.
We do not live by faith either. If you live by faith you would believe all kinds of crazy things.
You may wonder what we do live by. We live by evidence through faith. That means that we use evidence to determine things but finish it off with faith. Now that we have cleared that up we will move onto other things.
Let us talk about the big bang theory. First of all, the big bang theory is just a THEORY. You can't believe theories. Now according to the big bang theory, there was nothing. Then a ball of gasses exploded and became everything. Do you realize that if you believe in the big bang theory that you believe that there was nothing and then there was everything? And what caused the ball of gasses to explode? Do you know how much precision there is in the galaxy? If the earth were just a tiny bit closer to the sun it would burn up and if the earth were a tiny bit farther away from the sun that earth would be way to cold. If there was no Jupiter the earth would be pummeled with meoteors because Jupiter blocks them from earth. Those are just the ones that I remember. There are so many more things that show the precision of the earth. With all this precision, can you really believe that everything came from a ball of gas? Or do you think that it is possible that there could be someone who uniquely designed everything.
When a lion kills an animal is it sinning? Of course not! The lion is doing what it does naturally. That is the lions way of life. Now when we steal from someone are we sinning? YES. For the lion, there is no right or wrong. For us, there is a right and wrong. If there is a right and wrong then who established it? There must be someone above us who set the standards, someone who is perfect. That must mean that there IS a god. If there isn't a god then there is NO right or wrong. If there is no right or wrong, then we are just more mature, evolved animals.

Who doesn't smile a lot but smiles when she doesn't mean to?
Who is quiet but talks too fast?
Who is sometimes shy but outgoing?
Who dances with teenagers but isn't one herself?
Who is imaginative but doesn't like word pictures?
Who is friends with an opposite and twin?
It is Hannah: the daughter of God.

I do have another issue with American Girl. I have been studying the Renaissance time period in history. In the Renaissance people started noticing their talents and started using them. They produced great things, but started worshiping themselves instead of God who created them. I was on www.americangirl.com and looked at the poster book. It showed a preview of inside and one of the posters said "Celebrate you!" Are we going back to the Renaissance? We are not supposed to worship ourselves!
I do like the American Girl products a lot. I just do not agree with them on some things.

They did the dance to Me and My Shadow (the power of two) which my sister Emily danced to in her tap class this year and one top super line which I won't go into right now.

The dolls that I have are Kit, Ruthie, and Chrissa. I hope to put pictures of them on my blog soon. When they sleep Kit has Kit's bed and bedding and Ruthie and Chrissa sleep on the boxes the came in. My sister and I bought a bunk bed (not the American girl bunk bed), but it is in the basement. I have a whole bin of clothes for them. some of my favorite outfits are the following: tunic & jeans, Chrissa's snow outfit, and the 2 in 1 ballet outfit. I have two pieces of American girl furniture. Kit's bed and the American girl piano. Some things with the American girl piano. It is impossible to sit your doll on the bench and you should be careful when you open the top. If you know how to sew it is pretty easy to see bed covers for your doll.
