Here is a song I really like called

“Gypsy” By Shakira.

Mom says:  OK, this if better.  When we talked in the car you weren’t sure what a gypsy was.  I’m still not sure what she means in the song.

Can you tell me?

It has words in it, but you said I could post it for fun.

Mom says:

Sorry girl-girl.  I did like the song, but I felt like the video was too sexually suggestive so I took it off.  Can you find a video with the song, but not those pictures?  Post the words to the song for me and let’s see what story it tells.  I think that’s called narrative writing.


Actually, I don’t like any songs that dont have nay words in it.

But, this is a song called “Replay” by IYAZ, it’s a remix on the piano, and it doesn’t have word in this version.

This is my favorite! 😀

Mom says:

What do you like with no words?  I’m told I use too many words…

The new corner.  Gold ceiling.  Gold floor.

The tall corner.  Gold ceiling.  Gold floor.

The girl’s colors.  Jeweled and bright, with “slickery” fabric.

Go to this website and try out the tools.

The Artist’s Toolkit.

My Mom showed me something called Window Movie Maker earlier, and I made my own video.

The video is made of pictures I took of my friend’s dogs.  And yes, walking dogs counts as physical activity !!!

Mom says:

Do an essay in a different way.  Write your answers to this post in a different color for the font.  Use complete sentences and pay attention to the spell checker prompts.  Let’s get a picture with it linked to a site.

Who ?

AVI is a book writer. He got the name AVI when he was younger, and his twin sister called him that. He said it just stuck, and its the only name he uses. I think many people like his books, and think he is important. If you go to his website,  http://www.avi-writer.com/blog/ you can find out some facts about him, and see all of his books.

What ?

AVI writes books for children, teenagers, and young adults. I have read at least two of his books, and thought they were very good.


AVI made up his mind to start writing books when he was about seventeen years old.  So if he started writing books in 1954, and its now 2010, he has been writing books for 56 years.

Where ?

He was raised in Brooklyn, New York. He gets his ideas for his stories from his family.

Why ?

In one of his interviews AVI said the reason he became a writer is because ” Since writing was important to my family, friends, and school, it was important to me. I wanted to prove that I could write.” He said it took about two years before he got his first book published

According to what I have read, the most previously published book of his is Crispin The End of Time.
