    Could You Please Give Me Some Book Recommendations? So I may be going to this really big book store in about a week and I was wondering if all of you could give me some book recommendations? I used to use for recommendations but something seems to have happened to them. Right now my favorite subject to read about is politics/the government and below are some of the things I’ve read that involves politics and the government so you can see what my taste is like there.

    1. Dan Brown (I’ve read all of his books and I enjoyed them.)
    2. Animal Farm by George Orwell which I really liked and I’m currently reading 1984 and I like it so far.

    1. I’ve read most of Texas congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul’s books and I’ve enjoyed them. I’m also currently reading The Revolution A Manifesto by Mr. Paul and I’m enjoying it, when I finish this one the only one of his books that I’ll have left to read is his book on foreign policy.
    2. I’ve read all of Hunter S. Thompson’s works and he is my favorite journalist.
    3. Ghost Plane: The True Story of The CIA Torture Program by Stephen Grey which I thought was a decent book.
    4. The Case Against Barack Obama by David Freddoso which I also thought was a pretty good book.

    Besides stuff about politics and the government, I also love the Beat writers and my two favorites are Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg. I like poetry and my favorite poet is Jim Carroll who is most famous for writing The Basketball Diaries even though it’s not poetry in case you don’t know him by name and I also like Edgar Allan Poe. Some of my other favorite authors are Bret Easton Ellis, Chuck Palahniuk and Sir Author Conan Doyle.

    What Does My Crazy Dream Mean? OK, so I had this crazy dream last night… I was hoping someone would know about it, and what it means? I’m 13, I do gymnastics (although I’m out right now with an injury and it gets me down) and this is possibly the longest and most complex dream I can remember having. Through most of the dream I was terrified, and I woke up with a start when my alarm went off. I was shaking when I woke.

    So I had just finished gymnastics training (I do gymnastics) in this big building. I have no idea what it was, but I think it was like a leisure centre or something.
    Me and all of my team mates decided to go and explore the huge building. Before long, we were lost. There were dark rooms everywhere, and people occasionally went in and didn’t come out…
    Finally, we found some stairs and a lift. Choosing not to take the lift in case I never came out, I followed the girls as they climbed some stairs. When I went through the door to climb the stairs, they weren’t there, just a huge drop about 50 feet to the ground. There were platforms dotted around the room, some connected to the wall, some floating, some connected to each other by stairs. I jumped to the nearest platform then the next couple before noticing that I had my moisturiser in my hand (what the?). I chucked the moisturiser to the next platform and jumped. As I jumped I knocked the moisturiser off the platform and it plummeted to the bottom of the room, onto the cold concrete floor. I decided that if I didn’t get it, my mum would kill me, so I made a note to get it later if I could.

    Next thing I know, I have escaped from the building and I am standing on a dirt track in a large forest. I am with a man, although it seems I know him, and we are trying to escape together. I know that there will be things trying to kill us at every turn. We turn around together, and there stand two men dressed like musketeers/medieval horsemen and one normally dressed guy. The musketeers copy what we do (saluting, waving, etc.) until we ask them what they’re doing here, and it becomes apparent that they’re lost too. They follow us and we head up the dirt track, with a mass of forest to our left and a layer of shrubs and trees before a short fall into a brown river on our right.
    We started to walk, and the normally dressed guy spotted a booth. It looked like something from a circus or fair, very out of place in a creepy forest. I tried to stop him, but he wanted to go in, and I watched as he grabbed a chain that was hanging from a tree and swung to try and get into the thing, which was a bit out of reach to jump into. As he swung forward for the last time, he just… vanished. We all carried on walking, a bit quicker this time, in case something tried to get us like they got him.
    A minute of so later, I saw some more people, back at the booth. I thought they were going to end up dead, so we carried on walking. We didn’t want to be involved. That’s when I saw it. A blonde woman, with thick blonde plaits and creepy, almost zombie-fied eyes, bright green, focusing on nothing except whatever was straight ahead of her, came sprinting up towards us from the booth. I thought she was going to pass us, but then she focused on me, and turn 90 degrees to face me. I panicked, and ran straight for the river. I tumbled through the bush into the water. Only… it wasn’t water. It was like concrete, with ghost-like cars speeding toward me. I was trying to avoid the cars when… I woke up.

    Thanks for reading the huge wall of text! o.o

      Project 17 – Laurie Faria-Stolarz
      When six high school students sneak into an abandoned mental institution to make a film about their night there, they do not expect the inexplicable and terrifying events that keep occuring within the crumbling, maze-like building, causing them to question themselves and, ultimately, to make different choices about the course of their lives.

    What Do You Think Of My Writing? The small room was scattered with empty beer cans, glasses, mugs and plates. A small half-decorated Christmas tree stood in the corner of the room, brown pine leaves were scattered on the floor underneath it. The clock on the mantelpiece read 12:30; a fire crackled underneath it, its dancing flames cast flickering shadows against the walls. A big man with messy brown hair stared blankly at a small T.V, which showed a static imagine, whilst gulping a can of beer.
    “Come on, Henry! This one’s easy!” Imogen exclaimed. She was stood in the middle of the room, pulling her fist backwards and forwards, her face wearing a comical grin and widened eyes. Henry, a skinny man with dyed black hair, skinny jeans and several facial piercings, raised an eyebrow at her.
    “What are you doing?”
    Imogen sighed and gave up. “I’m playing charades.”
    “I thought you weren’t supposed to speak.”
    “Well I’ve put it on hold for now whilst I speak to you,” she replied. “Come on, it’s easy. Everyone knows this one. Come on Frank, join in!” The big man turned to look at her with mild interest before returning to the static T.V. “Why are you watching static anyway?”
    “The T.V’s broken,” he moaned dramatically.
    “It was alright before,” Imogen frowned, walking over to inspect it with her hands on her hips.
    “Seiji broke it.” Henry said quickly.
    Seiji, a man with a long, slender face and neat black hair looked up from his book for the first time to scowl at Henry. “Excuse me? I wasn’t the one who spilt half a bottle of lager on it, then practically smashed it to pieces when it wouldn’t turn on.” Adjusting his glasses, he returned to his thick volume.
    “Well… well we don’t need a T.V anyway,” Imogen said brightly. “Come on, you’ve got to guess this one Frank, it’s easy! Right, I’ll start from the beginning.” She put two fingers in the air, and then again, and then slapped the palm of her hand with her fist twice.
    Frank stared at her blankly. “What the hell does that mean?”
    “Well… you’ve got to tell me,” Imogen said.
    “But I don’t know.”
    “That’s the point, you’ve got to guess! Honestly, have you never played this game before?”
    “Why don’t you just tell us? Then we can get it over and done with,” Henry suggested.
    “Because that defies the point of the game! The whole aim is to guess what I’m acting out!”
    “But you aren’t acting anything out,” he said. “You’re just swearing at us and threatening to punch us.”
    “No! When I do this,” she slapped her fist against her palm twice, “it means two syllables.”
    “It means the word has two syllables!” Imogen said. Frank stared at her blankly.
    “Imogen, no one cares,” laughed Henry. “We don’t want to play charades.”
    “But we have to! It’s Christmas!” she insisted.
    “No one cares.”
    “Oh don’t be so miserable,” Imogen sighed, sitting down on the sofa next to Henry. “Honestly you lot, could you get any duller?”
    “I think you could do with a beer,” Henry said.
    “I don’t need alcohol to have fun!” she protested.
    “Well you blatantly do,” he laughed. “Frank, chuck us a couple of cans, would you?” Frank grabbed. two can from the table next to him and tossed them to Henry. Henry passed one to Imogen.
    “Stop forcing it on me!” she said, wrinkling her nose and dumping it on the table with distaste.
    “Oh come on Imogen, just one beer can’t do any harm,” he grinned, opening his can. “Frank and I are drinking too.”
    “I won’t give in to peer-pressure. Seiji, do something, they’re pressurising me!”
    “But it’s Christmas! Everyone drinks at Christmas.”
    Seiji glanced over the top of his book with little interest, “You two drink all year round no matter what the occasion.”
    “Yeah, you think it’s so cool to get ‘smashed’ and waste your life away!” Imogen said childishly. Suddenly the front door burst open and they lapsed into silence. Feet clomped in the hallway, one dragging slightly behind the other. The footsteps shuffled into the kitchen. A cupboard was opened and slammed, so was the fridge. They dragged back out of the room and towards the stairs.
    “You’re going to kill yourself if you keep this up!” Imogen called lightly. There was no response as the feet disappeared up the stairs. “Honestly, why did he have to do that today? Doesn’t Christmas mean anything to anyone anymore?”
    “No,” Henry snorted, glugging his beer. Imogen shot him a disgusted glance.
    “I’m not cleaning the carpet this time,” Seiji said coldly. “It’s going to be all over the house.”
    “Who’s going to do it then?”
    Seiji closed his book and set it on the side. “We’ll let him do it.”
    A chorus of gasps escaped from the others’ mouths. “But… you remember what happened last time you told him that… don’t you?” Imogen whispered nervously.
    Seiji nodded sternly. “I certainly to, however if he wishes to remain in my house, he will have to clean up after himself.”
    “I can’t wait to see you tell him,” Henry grinned darkly. “It certainly won’t go down too well.”
    Fear flickered momentarily across Seiji’s face; however he cleared his throat and adjusted his glasses on his nose. “Well if he reacts inappropriately, I have the right to remove him from the household.”
    “When are you going to tell him?” Imogen asked.
    “Now,” he said.
    Imogen gasped again, “I don’t think that will go down to well. Seiji, he’s only just come back!”
    “We can’t leave the blood on the carpet all night,” Seiji replied, standing up.
    “Tell him, Henry, Frank! You’ll get yourself killed, it’s just a carpet; I can clean it up if you like!”
    The flames of the fire danced in the reflection of Seiji’s glasses, shielding the look in his eyes. “You know it’s not just about the carpet, Imogen.”
    She exchanged a meaningful glance with Henry and Frank, hoping one of them would say something. “Fine, but I’ll come with you.”

    Sorry it’s a bit long, but you don’t have to read it all;
    Thanks in advance! 🙂

      I loved it! I loved the contrast of the characters and I just want to find out what will happen next xD
      Henry and Frank weren’t so interesting but I think that’s good, it makes the others captivate you more! I love the description of Seiji and how he acts xD Imogen is nice and upbeat! I just want to know what happens with this other character next 😛
      It’d be nice if Henry or Frank could come to the rescue if necessary! Henry preferably for many reasons 😛
      Did you just plan to leave it like that? Or you plan to finish it? 😀 I’d love to read it when you’re done if you plan on writing more lol! Would I be allowed? xD

    Is This A Healthy Idea To Follow When It Comes To A Healthy Dinner? I want to start eating healthy dinners that follow the whole lean, clean, green idea.

    So i figure ill always have some form of protein like chicken breast, turkey mince, salmon, white fish, egg etc (a healthy form).

    I’ll also always have a small handful of brown rice and make it into a stir fry.

    So with the rice ill boil it then chuck into a frying pan with the olive oil cooking spray with different vegetables each time and maybe add a bit of dark soy sauce.

    Then ill either mix the protein in or put it on the side.

    That way i cover lean with the meat/fish/eggs

    I cover the clean with the soy sauce and brown rice and olive oil spray

    and i cover the green with the mixed vegetables

    do you think this is a good idea to follow?

    Food In Pregnancy Worries? Ok I kinda have a lot of info in here so long question but would really appreciate anyone taking the time to read it and give me any advice/suggestions, thanks.

    I want to know if I’m getting enough protein in my daily diet. Usually I LOVE meat (except fish) but since I became pregnant I can’t stand any of it, it’s just makes me heave and gag all over the place and 9 times out of 10 I end up throwing it up (the other 1 time the gagging and heaving just won’t let me swallow it).
    I have a lot of dairy, fruit and veg, it’s what I’m ‘craving’ at the moment. I’ve bought loads of fruit and fresh veg I can eat raw so I don’t have to spend ages cooking (my boyfriend usually only does ready made meals or easy to make meals like pizza or baked beans with chips and sausage for example and he’s useless at cooking from scratch, I have to talk him through everything and usually end up having to do it myself anyway).
    At the moment I’ve got a bunch of red and yellow peppers, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, ice burg lettuce and a couple of tins of sweetcorn (I like to snack on all of these and they are great to chuck together to make a small salad) I do also like eating carrots, peas, onions, broccoli, celery (in a coleslaw), leeks (in a soup), beetroot and potatoes which are easy to boil to make something quick.
    And fruit I like is apples, oranges, peaches, bananas, cherries, grapes, melon (most types), nectarines, pears, plums, pomegranates, raspberries and strawberries.
    I’m not eating all the things on the lists at the same time because I don’t want to get sick of them and have no options left if I continue to dislike meat throughout my pregnancy (that being the case, fingers crossed I’ll at least get my appetite for it back after baby is born)
    I know I’m getting lots of healthy nutrients from the fruit and veg but the don’t contain everything I (or baby) need.
    I read earlier that dairy (cheese, yogurt and milk), eggs, beans, nuts and seed are high in protein and I heard that whole grain food is a good source too like whole grain bread or pasta.

    So right now I’m having
    For breakfast: Rice krispies multi grain shapes with milk (will have two bowls if I’m really hungry).
    For lunch: Either a sandwich (on white bread as I only like brown bread as toast) with cheese and/or veg as a filling or something small and quick like a plate of pasta and homemade sauce (usually made with tomato and garlic).
    For dinner: Usually something small and quick again like pasta (I won’t have two pasta dishes in one day though) or beans with mash and a small bowl of diced veg on the side. The other day I just filled my mixing bowl with lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, cheese, sweetcorn, plain pasta (no sauce) and cucumbers and ate that for my tea, was SO nice and surprisingly filling.
    Snacks with and in between meals: A bowl of diced cheese/veg/fruit or a couple of slices of toast with chocolate spread (can’t stand butter/margarine at the moment either) and I’ll treat myself to a small swiss roll or kit kat chunky (my sweet cravings) a couple of times a week.
    To drink: I carry a sports bottle around everywhere and I always have it topped up with juice (cordial because I don’t like the taste of plain tap water), I drink about 2-3 ‘fills’ of this a day plus around 5 mugs of milkshake (can’t stand milk by it’s self either) and sometimes I will get a couple of 1 litre cartons of pure juice (orange/apple/grapefruit etc). I don’t drink anything else. I don’t drink fizzy drinks or tea/coffee or any of that. Will occasionally have a hot chocolate (especially as I have a few free 12oz hot drinks stickers from the McDonald’s monopoly that friends didn’t want) but not often.

    Oh and when I have cheese I will usually eat around 100g-150g at a time.

    Do you think I am getting enough of what me and baby need out of my food, snack and drinks? I have my next midwife appointment may 7 so I will obviously ask professional advice there, I just want to put my mind at ease for the time being.

    Thanks in advance for any answers and sorry about the MASSIVE essay but thanks for taking the time to read 🙂
    Aw he’s not an idiot, just cooking isn’t his strong point. He has a job and comes home and cleans and he does laundry, and at the moment I’ve been told by the hospital to get loads of bed rest because I had a threatened miscarriage so he’s been doing all the shopping and everything else I can’t do. He’s really good.

    • Curator says:

      You are eating a really well.. You don’t have to eat meat for protein if it’s not agreeing with you.

      Remember your baby is always ‘first at the buffet table’. She’ll get all the good stuff first before you. You might get a bit anaemic if you don’t eat enough protein but that’s because baby got it all. You’d have to be very malnourished for your baby to suffer. It’s not something that can happen without you knowing.

      Just keep eating as well as you are and don’t worry.

      Good luck and congratulations!
