Wake Up

Is anyone as excited as I am for the movie adaptation of "Where the Wild Things Are"?

That is a classic book. It's a shame that people who have never read it are going to see the movie. The book is a children's book. I think it has less than 15 sentences. To make a full movie out of it is an achievement. I just hope that it doesn't detract from the initial charm of the book.

I used to think writing children's books had to be the easiest job in the world. However, after writing a children's book as a project for English class when I was in high school, I saw that these writers are brilliant. First of all, there are many children's books already in print. For someone's book to be successful, they have to first write a unique story that has not been heard. Then, they have to find a lesson relevant to today's child. Oh, and it has to be entertaining.

It is definitely raining pretty hard in D.C. I was wondering, when it rained during Jesus' time, could he even splash in the puddles? While all the kids were splashing, having a great time, did Jesus jump on puddles like we jump on the sidewalk? I'm going to make a note to ask him that.

Guess what? I'm scared. In all seriousness, though, I am scared. Have you ever had that feeling that you're about to hit a crossroads that will decide your path forever? Well, I'm almost there. All I can do is pray, relax, and eat fake D.C. chinese food. By the way, I have a bone to pick with all of the chinese restaurants near Howard University. Why do they make chicken wings and fries better than they make chinese food?

Yes, that is the best dish in D.C. Chicken wings with "mumbo" sauce, which I have no idea what that is still; with a side of fries. I shamelessly put pictures in my blogs. Oh well. Don't leave. Can we make it like it was?
