    *Cough* *Cough*

    Sorry, I have a wicked bad cold. Stuffy nose, sore throat, the works. It was probably because this past week, we went down to New York City for the fabulous Book Expo America. We go to different conferences and publishing events through the year, and I gotta say Book Expo is quickly becoming my favorite. I went by myself last year, and had so much fun, that this year Ryan came along with me. Our friend Erick Chase, a fifth grade teacher, MCFC teacher advisor and writer, came too. Also Ramses and F.W. invited themselves along, but pretty much did their own thing the whole time.

     

    The best part of the expo is the books. The books, the books, the books, the books! Hundreds and hundreds of books all for free. The only thing it can be compared to is trick-or-treating in a really good neighborhood where everyone gives out full sized candy bars.

     

    Along with the books come many of the authors who have written them. I love meeting and talking to authors. One part of conference was dedicated entirely to book signings. Most of the authors had a long line, and I couldn't spend too much time talking to them, but I still had some interesting encounters.

     

    One author, a Chinese healer, signed my book and then he put his hand to his chest and was quite for a moment. When he opened his eyes he said he put healing energy into my book. Do you think it would help me get rid of my cold? I should find that book!

     

    Another author told me she got into New York City at 3 a.m.! I was talking to her only 5 hours later. I think I would be exhausted, but she was very awake and happy and I saw her running throughout the expo the whole day.

    Some of the authors seemed a little cranky. I can't blame them, some of them were signing books for hours, but still...

     

    With so many people at the expo (in the thousands) Ryan and I were bound to know a few, but we ended up running into a lot of friends. It was such a surprise. If the publishing world was a 100-pound bag of rice, we are basically a flake of dust at the bottom of the bag. That is, we are very, very, very small. And yet, we knew a lot of people. Some comic artists, some authors, some publishers. I even ran into a friend from another kids magazine, and a cow that blogs about comics named Bully. I told Moo-Cow about him.

     

    ACCHOOOO!!! Now, if you'll excuse me I think I'll go lie down again.

    Ramses & F.W. came to Book Expo with us, but went off and did their own thing. From the looks of the pictures on the camera, they didn't spend their time getting books (most pictures were like the one above, which they took out front of a fantasy book booth). Ramses did say that they sat at some tables and signed books. When I pointed out to him that only authors are supposed to sign the books he just gave me a mischievous smile and I didn't ask any more questions. All in all I think they had a good time.

    W
    elcome to professor Kiweenie's blog…um…class! Since I can’t see you I’ll have to trust that you all have taken your seats so we can begin.

     

    This class is special because it is my first online course! To celebrate I thought that we could do something fun and creative to start. Today we are going to work on poems!

     

    Great poetry is usually something very personal to the writer. Poems are supposed to come from your heart, but that doesn’t mean they have to be romantic. It means that they should be meaningful to you, but they don't necessarily have to be serious. You could write about something funny that your cat does, or what a friend means to you. You could even write about something that makes you unhappy (sometimes it’s good to get that stuff out and it can make great poetry) Any subject you find important can be turned into a poem.

     

    Also, poetry comes in many forms. You might be most familiar with the rhyming style, and that’s great, but it doesn’t have to rhyme if you don’t want to. Here’s one I wrote in rhyming style:

     

    Green bugs, red bugs, yellow ones or blue

    I’ll eat them up in a quiche or a stew

    I don’t care if they crawled or flew

    As long as I can chew them two by two!

     

    And here’s one that doesn’t rhyme:

     

    I search the ground

    Everyday

    For bugs to eat

    But while I’m down there

    I notice

    New grass

    A budding flower

    During lunch

    I see

    The

    Seasons

    Change

     

    Nature is always a good inspiration for poems. I wrote that one after seeing the first blooming flower this spring.

    Now it’s your turn!

    Right now, in late spring, I’m working hard to get everything planted for the summer. I’ve decided this year to start a new garden from scratch.

     

    We have a small patch on our farm that is a little bit shady and very neglected. I’ve decided to bring some new life to that section. Planting in the shade is a bit more difficult than planting in the sun. The majority of plants, including flowers and vegetables, need a whole lot of sun every day to grow big and strong.

     

    Thankfully there are some hardy plants that enjoy the darker places. Ferns are one of my favorite plants that prefer a shady spot. In fact, if you plant a fern in an area that gets full sunlight it will get burned. Just like me :) (That’s why I wear a hat when I garden in the sun).

     

    I have a lot of ferns that grow in the wild around here though, so I probably won’t be adding any to my new garden. Instead I’m planning on planting Hostas, Lily of the Valley, and Periwinkle. I’m going to take a field trip to my local nursery and pick out a few other shade loving plants. Do you have a favorite I should get? I’ll be putting pictures on here as I work in my garden so you can keep track of it as I go along. If you have any questions or suggestions just let me know!

     

    Well, it’s time to get off the computer and get digging in the dirt!

    Wow, so here I am with my very own section on the internet. Becky, the editor, told me that I could write about whatever I wanted to on here. When Ramses heard that he also got a blog he ran right to the computer and started typing. He was muttering something about “finally giving the fans what they really wanted.” I’m not sure what he meant by that.
    When Ramses got off the computer, I couldn’t decide what to write about. Instead, I wrote a new flucorder song about not knowing what to write on the computer. It’s called, “Hmmmm, what do I write about?” I’ll record it and ask Becky if she can put it online so you can hear it too.

    Even after I wrote my song, I couldn’t come up with anything. I decided to ask everyone else what they were writing about and maybe it would give me ideas. I found Keby (in her garden of course) and she said she had written about starting a new garden. That’s a totally good idea! Too bad it’s already taken.

     

    Then I found Ramses and he said he had written a bunch of stuff about how great he thinks he is. Well, I’m DEFINITELY not going to write about that! Rhetorical said he was going to write about all the places he has lived in the past and people that he has met throughout history. I haven’t met too many people, so I can’t do that either. Moo-Cow wasn’t much help. When I asked him what he was going to write about, he gave me a manuscript for one of his mystery stories he writes. I don’t like mysteries, they’re usually too scary. I didn’t even bother asking Kiweenie because I saw him chomping on some bugs and taking notes, so I can guess what he’s going to write about.

     

    So I never came up with anything. Wait a second, look at how much I wrote about not having anything to write about! Yay! Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to compose a new song called “Wow, I wrote a lot about nothing!”

    T
    he masses have finally spoken and the crowds have demanded more Ramses!!

    I’m finally so famous I have my own blog. That lame-o editor Becky finally realized that she better give the fans what they really wanted.

     

    I’ve heard that everyone else is going to get blogs as well, probably so they don’t feel bad. I can guarantee that theirs are going to be pretty boring. I mean who really cares about Keby’s garden, or what bugs Kiweenie has eaten. Yuck. With my blog you’ll be able to follow the exciting and thrilling adventures of Ramses, and learn about the most intimate of details about my daily life. That way, you can begin to copy me and start doing things the way that I’m doing them. You’ll be cooler in no time.

    ramses_washes_cape.jpg Okay, so let’s see, what did I do today? Oh yeah! I washed my cape this morning. If you wear a cape, it’s something that you might want to think about doing too. Even if you take careful care of your cape, like I do, it eventually needs to be washed. The way you can tell that your cape is too dirty is when people start saying things like “Eww, Ramses is that your cape or an old dish towel?” or “What’s that smell?” You can ignore them at first, because most people are way too fussy. I go by the rule of 5. When 5 people complain about it being dirty, or I’ve gotten 5 stains on it, or it’s been 5 months, that’s when I wash it. Pretty smart huh?

     

    I fill up my bathtub with warm water and pour in some washing powder. I stir it up really well to make it very bubbly. My cape likes playing with bubbles. I also give it a rubber ducky to distract it while I am cleaning it. I use a bristly brush (F.W.’s toothbrush works great) and scrub each section till it’s nice and clean. Sometimes, depending on how many stains I have on it, it takes me awhile and I have to add more hot water to the tub. This is important, because you don’t want your cape getting chilly and catching a cold. Then when I’m done I rinse it off with warm water and hang it outside to dry.

    On a sunny day there aren’t many things as majestic as my nice clean cape soaring on a clothesline. Sometimes it looks like it’s flying and I imagine that I’m flying too. I’ve tried to get F.W. to write a flucorder song about it, but he tells me I’m crazy. I think it’s beautiful.

     

    Next time I’ll tell you about how to brush your hair – Ramses style. Till then, have fun cleaning your cape!
