Dear diary

Who invented the lemon? It's like, the most sickening fruit in the history of sickening fruits! Just one drop of the juice from a lemon can turn your lips inside out. And I don't even know what that means. Lemon juice is commonly used to add flavour to drinks, fish, pancakes, baked beans and petrol.
I really like lemon juice. It tastes great on cabbages. Weirdly, I'm not too keen on lemony carrots. Go figure.

Dear diary

Remember that game with the round guy who eats a lot and communicates with the dead? I played it again today. I think the last time I played it was when I was 4 years old. The effects aren't as impressive as they appeared back then. Maybe it's because today's games use much more sophisticated technology, but they don't have any delicious cherries in them.

Claire's Diary 27/08/2015


Dear diary

I have so much to do today, I don't think I will have time to write much. Maybe I can make up for it tomorrow by writing an extra long diary entry. Anyway, I'm off to the shops to get a pineapple. I know it's a bit of a random thing to shop for, but normally I need somewhere to start before I begin going around collecting more important stuff.
By the way I watched Jaws again and weirdly enough, it made me feel better about going back into the water. I think that movie has taught me that the worse thing I can find out there is a big, rubber, animatronic fish.


Thanks for the 40,000 views!

Really pleased to have reached this milestone!
Big, BIG, BIG thanks to you all!

Dear diary

Today is the day I visit my neighbours! I'm just gonna wait until the rain dies down. Yes, it's actually raining! I don't know who I'm going to visit, but I hope they have a dry home. I've already got myself soaked through out there. Seriously, I feel like I'm gonna shrink at some point!

Dear diary

Today I received a letter that made me feel very sad. It was from the library. Apparently there are some changes to be made. Now it's going to be even harder for me to rent out science fiction novels because they're including more books for children. Do children even know what books are these days? I'm older than they are and even I'm not entirely sure I know what a book is!

Dear diary

No, I'm not reviewing Jaws by Peter Benchley, I chose an image of me being pursued by a shark because I finally took a dip today. My fear of water is soon to be a thing of the past. I though the image of me not noticing the shark would add an element of humour. I would have looked very dumb if I went for a paddle to try and conquer my aquaphobia and it turned out to be in shark infested waters.
Also I'd be in a shark's belly.

Moby Dick by Herman Melville part 2

Captain Ahab seems to have some real issues. Why is it that he never watches TV? Why does he refuse to travel by bus? Why does he never go to the pictures? He's never gonna catch that whale if he can't relax and observe his surroundings...
I didn't read this book. I think I'm gonna stop doing these.

Moby Dick by Herman Melville

So, this is a story about the hunt for a sperm whale. That's about it. The whale is kinda intimidating because from what is told about him, he's like an unstoppable presence. I'm already afraid of the ocean, never mind the creatures that live in it. This just makes me feel petrified to live on this planet!
Other than that, good book.

The H.G. Wells novels part 2

How do tripods work? Not tripods in general, the tripod machines from War of the Worlds. They walk on 3 legs like some kind of crippled insect. This means that they have to try and use 2 legs to support the middle part of the machine while they move the other 1.
I'm beginning to think this book is a work of fiction...

The H.G. Wells novels

H.G. wells was renowned for being ahead of his time. He wrote about the possibility of time travel, creatures from distant planets and, my favourite one of all, an invisible man! I wish I could turn invisible. I would sneak into restaurants and steal all the free bread. Invisible men where unheard of in the days of Wells. I think he wrote about invisibility very well. It's like he knew what a relevant topic this would become some day. Won't be too long before it will actually be relevant.
