Death By Slime  

Obsessively¬†the¬†scientist created a¬†substance¬†that she made before, It was called SLIME.¬†Soon¬†everyone¬†wanted to own this… thing.¬†Soon¬†NASA¬†¬†heard¬†about this fine substance and wanted to see how it would act in space. The year is 1999, the testing of what slime would do in space. The sounds of the final countdown started 5,4,3,2,1 lift off!¬†Explosively¬†the rocket¬†lifted¬†off into space launching the pod of¬†gooey¬†slime.¬†After of a long¬†period¬†of time, the¬†¬†planet¬†landed on our 4th¬†planet,¬†Mars. With a sigh¬†of air, the door to the ship¬†opened¬†releasing¬†the slime. Little did they know half a¬†click¬†there was an¬†experiment making slime turn evil. As the slime floated¬†quickly¬†towards the lab people inside had no clue that the slime would mix with the¬†chemical¬†the¬†eventually¬†killing all of them, but let’s stay in the present.¬†Finally, the slime reached the¬†laboratory engulfing¬†the lab and all the¬†chemicals¬†with it. Now there was a BIG monster killing¬†human¬†by human¬†until¬†there is no one left.¬†

Where I Live

Do you like warm summers at the beach? If you do, then come to Comox.

Hi, my name is Quinn and I live in the Comox Valley. I have lived here for 4 years. (What a tongue twister)  Anyways, my favorite thing to do in all of the valley is to go skiing. Our ski hill is called Mount Washington. I have skied there for 3 years now and it is awesome. They have 5 chairs and the Boomerang (one of the chairs) is my favorite. It leads the backcountry and to black diamonds skiing.

In the winter, my favorite thing is when it is raining really hard down here, it is snowing a lot on Mount Washington. (like right now while I’m writing this.) I love skiing in fresh powder. The mountain is located 30 minutes/ 30 kilometers away, so we’re lucky.

My Favorite Restaurants

The Early bird café

Every once in a while, our family will go and eat there and I always get an omelet with fried potatoes. The part I like most about the fried potatoes is they cook them in onions, Mmm so good. They also serve different things including bread, soups, coffee and much more. All over the restaurant are pictures of birds, most of which are puzzles of birds.

  This is a picture of the omelet meal

Benino Gelato

I swear this place has the best ice cream in the world. They make classic Italian ice cream and sell it in their store. They also serve coffee and paninis, but the ice cream is the best. You can find Benino Gelato on Comox Ave.

The thing I like the most about Comox is the forest. We have a lot of them. We even go and play in one for PE. These forests also have a lot of biking areas and jumps. The name of the forest I bike in is called the North East Woods. There are kilometers of biking trails and walking trails. Thank you, Town of Comox for taking good care of our forest. The bike that I use is called Norco Storm and it handles really well. From jumps to the bumpy terrain it can do it all. Also in BC we have big trees. The biggest is on the island. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read this post.

The Seven Chairs By Harris Burdick

Today, before church the two old bishops lined up quietly. As the tall nun walked down the aisle, a chair glided down making her acquaintance. When she sat down, the chair flew upwards swiftly, not making a sound. As a cloud of rain drifted across the church, the emotionless nun began her journey.

It was a sunny Sunday in the Big Apple. People gathered to church In the tall old church, covered in green vines and moss. After a while a white cloud formed reveling a tall nun.

 

E.D.A.S

E.D.A.S
People pass me on the streets, not even noticing me.
No home, no family to love me.
I’ve lost it all.

But every Christmas I get a bag,
Not just any bag.

A bag made with love from kids who care.

In the bag I get a card, some cookies, A toque, mittens and a tooth brush.

Every Christmas I look to wards receiving another E.D.A.S bag!

Ski Post

 

I started to ski 3 years ago at MT Washington. I had only ever skied one other time at another mountain all the way a cross the country. Last year I learned how to ski blue and black diamonds. This ski season, I would like to learn how to ski double blacks and how to ski the out back. If you are ever close to a ski mountain in the winter, I would recommend that you get a lesson and go skiing because it the best way to spend your winter.

I have only skied the terrain park once, and it did not go well.  I ended up falling on the grind box because I was going too fast. I tried to slow down, but my legs split apart and I landed right on my back. siting on the chair lift hurt more than the fall.

This ski season the mountain is opening up earlier due to an early heavy snow fall. I am really excited to go skiing. Last year I missed quite a bit of skiing because we had to go thru rentals every ski day, but this year I got my own gear so I am ready to hit the slopes.

Ellen DeGeneres

Why did I chose Ellen DeGeneres out of all of the people in the word? Because she demonstrates all of the traits, and she seems like a nice person. Ellen is 59 and started her talk show in 2003. In her show, Ellen inspires people to never give up, and some times brings kids favorite celebrities on to surprise them. I started watching Ellen two years ago and she is really inspirational. If you did not know, she voices dory in Finding Dory and in Finding Nemo.

I think that Ellen shows compassion the most. She is kind to everyone she meets,¬† She is also very giving. In one of her shows she had a wheel that you could spin to win 1 billion dollars. Yet no one won. One of her quotes Is. “Sometimes you can’t see yourself clearly until you see yourself through the eyes of others.”

The other trait I think she demonstrates is risk taking. Ellen takes risks every day. One, she goes and talks in front of her 21 million audience just on YouTube. Two, she stood up against the law not allowing woman to marry each other. Here is a link to the video  of her receiving a medal from Barak Obama.

One of Ellen’s most shown traits is industriousness. Every day she is hard working and thinking how can I do better. She never gives up and always perseveres. For example, she has to plan who is coming to the show, and a lot of the lines.

Overall, Ellen is a great person, funny and talented. If I got to meet her in person it would be truly amazing. I will continue to watch her show till when ever she retires.

Dog in the Snow

Laika Ready to Attack | Vermont, USA Y Nakanishi via Compfight

In this picture a dog is going for a run in the new, white-powder snow. Trying to find his toy, she comes across a bunny. Chasing it along the field, snow is building up on her paws. She basically had a new pair of shoes,  so fancy.

The same thing happens every year with my dog. Then my dog goes outside and comes in with a pair of ice shoes. Then we rush her up stairs into a warm bath to melt the ice off. 

Fun fact: snow is coming down as I type this.
