Line Rider

Line Rider is a fun game. I've been playing it for an entire year. Every time, I set up a sledding course I try to make it so that there are cool stunts but he stays on the sled. One time I even got him to do a back flip without falling off. I don't really care if he falls off, because he keeps on moving anyway.
Here is some information about the newest fad in the world, Line Rider:

Boy grabs sled. Boy rides sled. A simple concept yields endless fun and the
latest Internet Phenomenon is born! In Line Rider the player draws their own
landscape with a simple pencil tool creating as many ramps, hills, and jumps as
they can imagine. Then they send a virtual sledder careening down the course
until he wipes out. The possibilities in Line Rider are only limited by the
player's imagination.

The One Egg Trio

mysterydungeon There were three legendary Pokémon who were born in the same egg. All three Pokémon are protecting time gears at lakes.

One of the Pokémon is Uxie, the being of knowledge. Uxie is able to wipe memory clean and create illusions. Uxie looks like he has a yellow hat, his body is gray, and he has two tails. Uxie lives at Fog Bound Lake where he guards a time gear.

The next triplet is Mesprit, the girl Pokémon that clones. Mesprit is the being of emotions. She guards her gear at an underground lake. She has four purple things coming out of her head, a gray body, and two tails.

And finally, we have Avelf, the protector of yet another time gear. This one is at Crystal Lake. He or she, we don't know his gender, has the power to make crystals in the blink of an eye. He has a blue head, a gray body, and two tails.

In the game, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorer of Time and Darkness, you have to fight something at each lake. At Fog Bound Lake, you have to fight an illusion of Grawden. In the Underground Lake, you fight Mesprit. At Crystal Lake, you fight Growviule. All in all, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorer of Time and Darkness is a really entertaining GameBoy DS game.

Deoxys is believed to have evolved from a space virus. He can regenerate missing parts. He fights Riqazu. This free offer is the only way to catch him. He is my favorite Pokemon.

Two Brer Rabbit Story Collections


More of Brer Rabbit's Tricks by Ennis Rees and Illustrated by Edward Gorey.

It's a funny book. Almost every Brer Rabbit story collection seems to have a different kind of illustration of Brer Rabbit. This book has the best illustrations of Brer Rabbit because he looks so deceptively helpless. I love Brer Rabbit because he has such good tricks.


Giant Treasury of Brer Rabbit. Retold from the stories of Joel Chandler Harris and Illustrated by Harry Rountree and Rene Bull.

I would give it a hundred, if there were 100 stars. It's a really good book. It's really funny. The picture on the cover shows one of the pictures in the time when Brer Rabbit tricked Brer Cow and got her horns stuck in a tree so they could milk her. But, then the next day, Brer Cow chased Brer Rabbit for the rest of his life. I think he still thinks the trick was worth it, because they got a couple of buckets full of milk.

I really like his trickiness. This is my favorite Brer Rabbit book because it has lots of cool stories.

The Peregrine Falcon

Wow! That's a fast bird. His name is Frightful, just like my favorite character in the best book ever, My Side of the Mountain.

I tried to fly as fast as Frightful, but it didn't work out so well.
