She's Cine It (link) and an Update

She's Cine It, a blog reviewing (and probably smashing) movies that K has seen. It'll be great, trust me, I've read some of her older reviews.

Also, I've been busy lately and have gotten behind on blogs, I'm catching up now, please forgive me for my tardiness.
But my news, I had my qualifying exam for the SkillsUSA IL photoshop competition Friday night, and I think I did really good. I placed 2nd on the qualifying last year, I hope I got 1st this year! I'll have the scores back sometime this week, but I'm for sure going down state for Skills in web design and homepage design--wish me luck!
And I'm writing more with The Elemental Spell, the big news of this being that I figured out the ending! Yes, now all I have to do is write it. Now, if only I could get over my writer's block for Marshall Manor...

Book Review: The Adventures of Guy by Norm Cowie

In this book we meet a guy named, well, Guy. Guy and his friends Knob and Thurman, along with a warrior, are out to save Guy's little brother Seth from the most vile of villains: telemarketers. See, the boys haven't heard about the Do Not Call listing, and now their phone rings non-stop and they never answer it. That is, until Seth comes over one day and does. And the telemarketers stole his brain. Now they're on a quest to get it back. They have the essentials of the perfect questing team: Guy as the reluctant leader, Knob as the elf, Thurman as the wizard, and the warrior: a woman with two placenta--you don't cross her. They begin to track down the telemarketers, but are they after more than they bargained for?

This book is a witty and sarcastic tale with great characters that will make you literally laugh out loud. Cowie's style is very unique and makes for an easy read, but one that will hold your attention from page 1 to the very end. This is not a book I would recommend to my 13 year old sister, but I certainly recommend it to all the adults and most older teens I know. It's a funny book with real-life villains (mostly).

Also, you can read the first few chapters of this book here
