Weekly Quote for Week-29 2017

Weekly Quote for Week-29 2017

However, this was a library unlike any they had ever seen before. It was nothing like his school library, Jonny though, which – on a good day – may contain a couple of books about the agricultural revolution and an encyclopaedia about growing up (with suitably patronizing ‘anatomical’ illustrations, including several pop-up bits).
No, this library was absolutely crammed with magic books. Tall books, zigzag-shaped books, books as small as playing cards; illustrated books, theoretical books; books about billiard balls, books about balloon animals, books about illusions, books about other books, books on books on books about other books; books stacked upright, books stacked sideways, upside-down books, books with fancy tassels – a proper hodgepodge of conjuring books; a dry-stone wall of books, all interlocking perfectly, filling every possible space.

Weekly Quote for Week-28 2017

“Somewhere along the line, I started thinking that if I just got through this bad experience, this bad day, that tomorrow I’d have something better, brighter, newer.
I still believe that. I still believe that there’s something good out there for me. I just have to keep going until my time comes.”

“I stand and hold out my hand. She gives me a skeptical look, but takes it and lets me pull her to her feet. I put my other hand in the air. ‘Bronwyn Rojas, I solemnly swear not to murder you today or at any point in the future. Deal?’
‘You’re ridiculous,’ she mutters, going even redder.
‘It concerns me you’re avoiding a promise not to murder me.”

Weekly Quote for Week-26 2017

I hang up and watch the vlog.  I see a very upset and clearly emotional me saying things I really mean but I do sound a bit like a teacher. I’m also so involved in what I’m saying that I completely fail to notice Dave, who has slinked up behind me and spotted Grandad’s wading bird calendar lying on the bench.
Dave doesn’t like birds. And she really doesn’t like ringed plovers. Even paper ones.
When she spots the ringed plover, Dave decides to lift herself up on two legs and dance hypnotically from side to side. She’s better that the “Thriller” cat and looks like she’s been trained by the world’s best choreographers. She then starts diving up and down on top of the plover, licking, head-butting it and twizzling her bum on it.

Well, here we are,” Ethan said. “The end of the world.”
I smiled, turning slightly to take in the full view. “It’s different to what I expected.”

‘Right,’ said Cassie uncertainly. ‘So either we find a load more magicians and get them casting spells, or we find more dragons.’
‘Dragons,’ said Ewan Hughes. ‘Let’s find dragons. I hate magicians.’ He caught Brine’s glare. ‘All magicians except Peter, I mean.’

“And what about the new Grizzler?” Spencer carries right on. “The wrinkly one?”
“Yoo-hoo! I’m RIGHT here, darling!” Granny Viv booms at the top of her voice, striding down the aisle towards Spencer and his mates. “Did you miss me, sweetheart?”
EVERYONE in the hall turns to stare.
EVERY square inch of Spencer’s face turns prawn pink.

“Hey, wait,” he said, frowning. “How come you’re Han and I’m Leia? Shouldn’t it be the other way around?”
“You were pouting,” I said, matter-of-factly. “Han Solo doesn’t pout. You can have your Han privileges back when you cheer up. Can I ask what’s on your mind?”

“Everyone should refresh their e-blocker before stepping out of the airlock, and again at one-hour intervals. If you break into a sweat, give yourself a top-up right there and then. Don’t wait until the hungries start to compliment you on your rich bouquet.
