Yesterday, I saw the movie Titanic. The characters are played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. An expedition found The Titanic – Ship of Dreams. They have wanted a diamond in a safe, but they can’t it and discover a photo of a woman. The woman in the picture is wearing the diamond necklace. One grandmother sees this on the TV news and calls the expedition team. She says she is the woman in the picture. So the expedition takes her on the expedition. That grandmother tells her story to the team.
Rose boards the Titanic with her fiance and her mother. She always suffers from the strict social order of the early 20th century. Jack wins a ticket for the Titanic from gambling 5 minutes before the ship sets sail. The third-class passenger Jack see the first-class passenger Rose and falls in love with her. By chance that night Jack sees Rose try to commit suicide. He saves her with his witty speaking ability. So Rose’s fiance invites Jack to a dinner party in the 1st class cabin. After the dinner party, they go to the 3rd-class cabin’s party and they fall in love with each other. After that, no one can stop their forbidden love.
Today I watched Transformers 3. The most impressive scene is when Sentinel Prime seal is smashed by Optimus Prime. Then Sentinel Prime wakes up and smashes Optimus Prime. I like Bumblebee and Optimus Prime because they look cool. It was a very fun movie to watch on a rainy day.
Yesterday, Phoebe’s parents (my aunt and uncle) and her younger brother Philip came to Grandma’s house. Philip is a 3-year-old boy, but he’s really active. So my family has difficulty with him. Phoebe is a 6-year-old girl but she looks like an elementary school student. Philip likes me very much, so he always follows me. He doesn’t always listen.
Sometimes he acts like a little, cute baby. He imitates a gorilla, a tiger, a dog, a cat, and a gumiho (a 9-tailed fox). My favorite is his gumiho. He holds his head and howls, “Ahooh~!” He is really cute! I have fallen in love with him. ♥
Today my sister and I played Jenga. I won! I pulled out two pieces from the bottom. Then 30 minutes later my sister pulled out the last piece, and they all fell down. So my sister had to clean up the Jenga pieces. It was so fun!
Yesterday I saw the movie Romeo and Juliet. I’ve read the book Romeo and Juliet lots of times but saw the movie for the first time. I thought the movie would be boring. But actually it was really interesting. It is the modern version of Romeo and Juliet but the story and dialogue are the same. Leonardo DiCaprio is really handsome in the movie. But now, he is just like an obese uncle.
Claire Danes doesn’t seem pretty. Iris and I think DiCaprio is wasted on her. She is not who I had in mind for Juliet.
My favorite scene is when the two main characters first meet. It is unrealistic but so lovely.
I had a simple snack this afternoon: a cherry pomegranate toaster pastry. I brought a box over from my trip to America. This simple pastry is filled with jam and covered with a candy-like icing. You can eat them straight out of the wrapper, but they taste much better if you warm them up first in a toaster or toaster oven. American children enjoy these sometimes at breakfast. The most popular brand is Pop-Tarts by Kellogg’s, but I bought my at Trader Joe’s, a trendy supermarket chain in America.
Toaster pastries are delicious but not very good for your health. Eating them is like eating a cookie. I don’t think I’ve had one in over twenty years. Eating one of these is not only fun but also brings back fun memories of my childhood.
Two days ago I saw the movie Romeo and Juliet. Romeo was very handsome, but Juliet was ugly. I was shocked. My older sister Ivy and I thought Ivy is more prettier than Juliet. And Romeo is prettier than Juliet, too. Juliet is most ugly actress I ever seen. If I was movie director, I would present a pretty and famous actress.
Today I watched a movie. Its name is Despicable Me. Minions are just helpers of bad people. The boss gets the moon with his shrink ray. But it gets bigger and bigger and rises back to the sky. The movie has a happy but boring ending.
My cousin Phoebe has been staying at Grandma’s house for more than two weeks. Thanks to her, we have suffered from nightmares every night since then. She has caused so much trouble.
First, she tells lies to Grandma. Then Grandma always scolds Iris and me. Phoebe doesn’t like me very much. So, if she gets angry, she tells likes to Grandma like “Ivy punched me!” and cries. It is really unfair that Grandma trusts Phoebe more than me. She thinks young children can’t tell lies, but Phoebe isn’t a normal child. She is like the devil!
Second, she makes our house messy. When she finishes playing, she doesn’t clean up her toys and dolls. So Iris and I have to clean them up. It is really unfair.
And Phoebe is hateful! Sometimes she pees on the floor. It smells really bad! She is 6 years old, so I can’t understand why she pees on the floor.
Third, we can’t concentrate on our work. When I study or do my work, she disturbs me. She comes to me and says, “Play with me!”, “Turn on the television!”, and so on . . .
Fourth, she speaks rudely to us. If she gets angry, she says, “You are a pig, a fool, a stupid girl!” I get very angry, so I say, “Be quiet! You are a bigger pig and fool!” Then she cries. Then Grandmas scolds me.
