Quotes I (Olivia!) love from the amazing book Star Girl

Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli

Quotes I (Olivia!) love from the amazing book Stargirl (I’m reading it right now...)

“So she would stop and point out that the front door of the house we were passing was blue. And that the last time we had passed it, someone who lived in that house painted the front door a different color several times a year.”

“And the last remaining space between our lips was gone and I was falling headlong into her eyes, right there on Palo Verde after dinner. And I can tell you, that was no saint kissing me.”

More to come...

The Adventures of Super Brick and ? #3

When we last saw our hero Super Brick he was in a dark alley stuck in wet cement listening to the dark laugh from someone or something on the roof top above. The someone or something jumped down from the roof and walked into the light so Super Brick could see it. It was a tall man with black hair, and a black cape with a picture of a big hammer on the back. The tall man also carried a sledge hammer and called himself “The Sledge Hammer” but for short let’s just call him The Sleg. So The Sleg was getting ready to whack Super Brick with his sledge hammer… Let’s go to one of the other super heroes Jonny Cinderblock. Jonny Cinderblock was one of Super Bricks pals. He was on top of the tallest building in the city looking for people in trouble or crime. He looked to his left, he saw nothing. He looked to his right, there he saw Super Brick, in an alley stuck in wet cement. Jonny Cinderblock thought “Oh no I must go help Super Brick.” So he swooped down into the alley where Super Brick was and pulled him out of the wet cement and put him on the same rooftop that he was on before. He said to Super Brick “Are you ok?” Super Brick replied “Yes thanks to you, thank you.”

The Adventures of Super Brick #2

Now that Super Brick had riches from the people of the city of Keensvile he had a mansion. So Super Brick was hanging out at his mansion. He was enjoying himself in his solid gold hot tub, when he thought he heard something. He did hear something; it was the screams of children. He jumped out of his hot tub without drying off and flew to their rescue. He had to fly a long way before he could find them. He was so distracted by all the thoughts racing through his mind that he landed on someone’s car windshield, by accident. He was so mad about the windshield that he said words he thought he would never have to say #*#*$$#*!!! After he was done with the foul language he went to find the little children. He flew away from the car and found the children in the next alley. He went to save the children when he stepped in wet cement, his one weakness. He was stuck there unable to save the poor children. He heard a dark laugh coming from the rooftop above him. It sounded like this, “Ha ha ha Super Brick I’ve got you now!”

Super Brick ☺

Austin came up with idea but did not want it so he gave it to me☺!

Once upon a time there was a boy named Bob. Bob was in the junk yard looking for something to play with. Bob found a brick. He thought of a funny joke, he could put the brick in a tree, and it could fall out and land on someone’s head. So he did just that.

At a bank next to the tree there was a robbery in process. The robbers name was Albert; he had just escaped from Alcatraz upon a floating piece of drift wood. Albert the robber ran under the tree and the brick fell out on to the robbers head. The police rushed to the concussioned robber and took him back to Alcatraz.

Everybody was so happy. The people of the city of Keensville gave the brick riches and named him caption of the police station!! If you are wondering what Super Brick’s powers are and how he got them well I will tell you. Super Brick was made in a factory like any other brick. When he was on the conveyer belt he fell into a bat of radioactive toxic waste. He began to come to life he could talk, and he could fly! He swore that he would pretend to be a regular brick in till he was needed. That is how Super Brick got his powers.
