I'll do this now. :D

11 Random Things about me

1: I've always been a bit of a Tomboy.  I never liked jewelry or make up and I liked both Princesses and Dinosaurs just like my sister. I also never liked romance stories and would hide my eyes when people kissed on screen(I still do this). I also am very interested in weapons such as lightsabers, swords, bow and arrows, and martial arts.So yeah, you could definitely say I'm a tomboy.  I also like thinking about what I would do in different situations, like what would I do if a big monster attacked or something?   Would I use kicks, or take downs..?

2:  I've been into Pokemon ever since I was eleven, and I still am!  It is AMAZING!!!  I also LOVE writing fanfictions for it! XD  Besides that, I play music from the show, when I can find it and my favorite Pokemon song is called: Lugia's Song.  Or, The Legend Comes True.  Whichever you prefer, but Lugia's song is shorter to write so...I use it more often.  Now I'm rambling, so I'll move onto the next random thing. :p

3: Star Wars is a great TV show. :)
I'm one of those Star Wars fans/geeks/fangirls who considers the EU more canon then The Clone Wars. My sister continually will point this out to me, but I don't argue because I agree with her. :p
The reason behind that is because I started getting into the EU right after watching the films back when I was seven years old(the first book I 'read' was "Yoda: Dark Rendezvous"; my Dad read it to my sister and I and we loved it). So you could say that, beside it being the thing I saw first, I also have a child-like fondness for the EU that I have for the movies. One of my favorite Star Wars books is called: Secrets Of The Jedi by Jude Watson.  I get it for my sister for her birthday and it was just SO GOOD!  I think it was one of the first Star Wars books that got me into reading Star Wars books. LOL

4: Recently, I've been getting more and more into Anime and Manga.  I'm going to a Anime Convention this Autumn, and I still haven't decided who to Cosplay as! (Cosplay is dressing up as a character) :p  I watched many, animes, including Fruits Basket (I highly recommend it) and Avatar: The Last Airbender, and its sequel, The Legend of Korra.  (Do those count as Animes..?)  As I've already stated, I like Pokemon, and rip offs of Pokemon really bug me.  -_-  But at least I know that Pokemon is an ORIGINAL story. :p  (The creator-Satoshi Tajiri-came up with it when he was a kid and would catch tadpoles in his creek and kept them as pets.

5: I am a really random person at times, and during other times, I'm the complete opposite.  My personality is the same most of the time, but then sometimes I can change it to fit situations.  And when I'm around people, I create a new personality to watch from the sidelines to see who is nice, and who is not.

6: I'm going to Celebration VI this year! I don't which days but I'm going to be going for two of them. I am REALLY looking forward to this even since I'm going to get to be around a bunch of Star Wars fans and I'll even get to meet a few actors. I'll be going with my Star Wars/geek/fangirl/crazy Obi-Wan fan/sister to this event.  It's going to be a long two days. XD  But what fun!!!

7: I'm not much of a romantic.  I'm only ok with it, if it is subtle, or hilarious, where the characters get embarrassed.  (Like what I'm doing with the book I'm writing)  The sappy and gross romance sickens me and I think that is just dumb. :O  All the-"I love YOU!"  "I love you TOO!"  Is just silly.
But I really liked the pairings of Obi-Wan/Siri, Qui-Gon/Tahl, Anakin Solo/Tahiri Veila, Darra/Ferus, Jaina/Zekk, and Tenel Ka/Jacen. I'm definitely a huge Siri-Wan fan and it's the only romance surrounding Obi-Wan that I believe is canon. (Because I read Secrets Of The Jedi.)
I also am a very large Pokeshipping fan (Ash and Misty), Contestshipping fan (May and Drew), and Penguinshipping fan (Dawn and Kenny).  (Pokemon couples if you don't know)  I am also open to any other shippings, but I just believe the ones I am for are the only true ones.
And I'm increasingly worried about how the newest season is going surrounding Ash and the new girl, Iris.  I do NOT want them to be together.  Perhaps that's why I'm not watching it...

8: I'm a Liberal Democrat and a Christian(I also have some Universalist leanings). I have a strong hold my beliefs and know what I think and believe. I have respect for people who believe and think differently then I do and understand that others have differentiating opinions(whether it be political, religious, or even Pokemon canon) and I try to get along with people of all religious or political backgrounds as long as they respect my opinions on things as well. Though, I have met some who just wont do the same, and are incredibly rude. -_-  (Haha, I copied this part from Shena Tokala, it's PERFECT!)

9: My favorite types of fiction are Fantasy, Science Fiction, and a Contemporary mix. (Like how my book series is going to be.  And believe me, combining all these genres is difficult.)
I love watching films and t.v shows and reading books in these genres. I love all stories about adventures in space and in other lands where good and evil must battle it out.
I also really want to be in films in these genres. I'm an actor, writer, filmmaker, singer, taekwondo trainee, piano and flute player, and a Jedi/Pokemon Trainer/Shieldmaiden/Sorceress/powerful superhero! :)

10: I started Taekwondo four/five months ago and I've gotten my yellow stripe. I really enjoy it and I've learned quite a lot. Besides martial arts, two other physically active activities I've done are soccer and basketball. I loved both soccer and basketball. Soccer more, because I was better at it and I found it more enjoyable.  (I keep spelling soccer, soccar.)  It's now like I'm going to go and sock a car.  That would hurt my hand. :p

11: As I've said, I'm totally obsessed with POKEMON!  I own practically all of the DS games of it, I've read many manga and other books about it.  I've also memorized all the Pokemon and could tell you the evolved or pre evolved form of each!  And when people say that Pokemon is "New Age"  that is not right.  I don't see how it is and it's been around for almost twenty years!
I'm a total Star Wars fangirl/geek/fan/nerd person! I love the films, the books, the t.v shows(both of them), the games, and the comics(which I have yet to read but which look really epic). I've loved it since I was nine and saw "A New Hope" for the first time. The Jedi have always fascinated me and I've always thought it would be cool to be one. Other stories I really, really love are- Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, The Chronicles of Narnia, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel, and any other really well written work. :)  (Copied the last part from Shena Tokala. :p )

1: What is your favorite book?

Well, I really do not know, I have many favorites and when I'm asked this, I stumble and can't even think of the books I like! :p

2: Have you ever traveled to another country? If you haven't where would you like to go?

I've only gone to Canada, and Mexico.  I want to go to Europe, (mostly the British Isles) and JAPAN!!!

I like classical piano, Classic Rock, Hip Hop, Progressive Metal, Pop, and Techno.

Yes!  Because then I can find things like walkthroughs and awesome tribute videos!

6: Which fictional characters have you had a crush on? If you haven't which character is your favorite?

I don't have a crush.  Ummm....my favorite fictional character...probably the characters from my book series and if that doesn't count...then the characters from Pokemon, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Narnia.
7: If you could have a lightsaber, what color would you want it to be?

Blue, Purple, or White with a black core. ^_^  I think that would be just EPIC!

8: What Jedi/Sith would you be in the Star Wars universe?

I would be Obi-Wan...but he's a guy..  Maybe Jedi Exile, or maybe one of the girl Grand Jedi Masters that I cannot remember the names of.. :/


9: Do you like anime? If so, which is your favorite?

I like Pokemon (obviously) Fruits Basket, Avatar the last airbender, Sailor Moon, and Shugo Chara.
(Hehe...I'm not picking a favorite, I'm making a list!)

10: What is your favorite thing to learn about?

Science and History.

11: Who is your favorite superhero?

I like Batman, Iron Man, girl super heroes who actually DO stuff and don't wear anything skimpy, Wolverine, Rogue, and maybe the avengers once I finish watching all of them. ^_^

~~~

OKAY!  I'm not going to tag anyone because I do not know very many and Shena Tokala said I didn't have to.  So I wont do any questions.  (And I copied you Shena Tokala. :p )
Random thought:  I wish you got emails if people have commented on your posts because I've gone back and seen comments on some things that I've never noticed...err...now I'm being random again... LOL

Okay!  That is all Sayōnara!!

Christmas Songs: Where they came from week 4

I haven't got to this last  one because I've been busy.

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town



It was written by John Fredrick Coots and Haven Gillespie.  It was sung on a radio show in 1934 and by the next day over 400,000 copies were sold.

It has been sung by over 100 artists and is still being played today during Christmas time.  ^_^

Lyrics:
You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
He's making a list
And checking it twice;
Gonna find out Who's naughty and nice
Santa Claus is coming to town
He sees you when you're sleeping
He knows when you're awake
He knows if you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!
O! You better watch out!
You better not cry
Better not pout
I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town
