This has just been updated and made to look very stylish thanks to my good friend Lesa.
It looks really great.
It's a great way for all your friends to read what you're doing every day and to keep a record for yourself too. Thanks to Lesa and Runboard we can now have what is almost our own 'Facebook' type commentary.
So to start:
I went to see the new fantasy movie yesterday; Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. I liked it, but mainly because I like the actors and they are really good actors, but it's a poor cousin to the brilliance of Harry Potter.
The theme of Greek Gods thought up by the author Rick Riordon is brilliant as a counter to JK Rowling's Potter and I suspect that the idea might have come from the Harry Potter books.
There are a teacher who is a mentor, a teacher turns out to be a fury , boot camp for demi-gods as opposed to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and the gods on Olympus as opposed to the faculty of Professors in Harry Potter.
Also Percy is supposed to be a 12-year-old boy, not a 17-year-old with raging hormones for Anabeth the daughter of Athena. Anyway, even though Hollywood has made it into something spectacular, if the movie is likely to make kids want to read the books, I'm not going to complain. Kids should be reading and if fantasy does it and in the process they also learn about the Greek gods, that is even better.
So I recommend taking kids to see it and buying the books for them to read.
That's is for today. I'll be back tomorrow.
