It is rainy and windy and cold outside. (Which is weird, because it was so sunny and warm yesterday and now it's hailing.) And that means that it's time for a nice, rambly post.

First of all, I'd like to post up the link to the winning Gallagher Girl widgets here, just because I thought they was so cool. They're both similar, but the second one has a Harry Potterish feel with the numbers and everything, and the word "countdown" in the block letters was great too.

Second of all, The Last Olympian is coming out tomorrow! Woot! Some of my friends were so excited today at school, it was scary. I'm not as enthusiastic as them, but I am eagerly waiting to see what happens. Although I'm sure everything's going to end up fine and dandy, since no author ends their series unhappily.

I also found an amazing poem that I really like, called "From Imagine Angels" by Guillaume Apollinaire. What's fascinating about the poem is not just the words, but the formatting. (You'll understand later.) I really wanted to post it up here, but the only place where I can find it is in A Family of Poems by Caroline Kennedy, which is a delightful collection of poems with bright, colorful illustrations. So anyways, I'll see if I can take a picture and post it up. Look for that soon.

Happy Monday!

Lol, I agree with you believing that it was scary at how some people acted so excited about the Last Olympian.
