Simpson's Episode: Tree House of Terror

I'm writing this to show that I know what the literary elements mean.

In this episode, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie are in the tree house telling "scary" Halloween stories while Marge and Homer are cooking supper outside. While they are reading, they here a noise outside and go see what it is. It's an alien ship! The aliens take them and try to take over Springfield. The aliens feed the Simpson's and then Lisa finds a recipe book on "how to cook humans". The aliens see that she has found it and blow on it to dust it off. It then says, "How to cook for humans". Lisa blows on it and it now says, "How to cook forty humans". The alien blows on it again and it finally said, "How to cook for forty humans". Lisa hurt the aliens feelings and they dropped them off back at their house. The kids went back up into the tree house to tell stories. Homer was sitting outside the tree house in the tree. Marge calls the kids into the house for bed and as they are going down the tree, Homer is still sitting there shaking because he is scared. Homer has a nightmare that night.

Holiday Extravaganza

My favorite holiday is Christmas because I get a lot of presents. I also like Christmas because I like to go snowboarding and snowmobiling. But only if there is enough snow on the ground.

If I could have a fantasy holiday, it would be BLUE COLOR DAY where everyone wears blue because my favorite color is blue.

If I could holiday in(vacation) a country, I would holiday in(vacation) Australia. I have always wanted to go to Australia because my friend Ink(Emma-Jane) lives there and I want to see a kangaroo.

Climate Change

As part of the student blogging challenge, I wrote a post for BAD 2009 on the topic of climate change. Climate change is happening because we are releasing too many greenhouse gases. The most common greenhouse gases are: carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and water vapor. Whenever you watch TV, play a video game, use the air conditioner, listen to the stereo, turn on a light, wash or dry your clothes, use a hair dryer, use a dish washer, ride in a car, or microwave a meal, you are releasing greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. To reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that get released into the atmosphere, people could do some of the following: walk or ride your bike, carpool, plant trees, or recycle cans, bottles, plastic bags and newspapers.
The top 5 countries that are emitting the most co2 are: Qatar - 64.14 tonnes/year, Kuwait - 38.26 tonnes/year, United Arab Emirates - 32.28 tonnes/year, Luxembourg - 24.69 tonnes/year, and Brunei - 23.1 tonnes/year.
