another chapter... i just cant remember... just gonna title these stories... adventures?? forget it!

From now on, i'm not going to write the date because it's boring and.... i'm too lazy. =)
Anyways, we were just walking around Egypt. The reason we were there was because Alex and Gary thought iit'd be a great idea to go sit on top of the pyramids. All of us just rolled our eyes, but in a flash, the jet was ehre. i guess they've been talkign about it for a while. The girls had no choice but to go with them, since who knows what could happen to them? alex could get swallowed by a camel, Gary could kill a camel, James could get left behind studying the scientific name for a camel, and Joseph could jump into the Nile!!! What choice did we have? Each of them have the possibility of dying except for Gary, and I just KNOW i can't live with only Gary for the rest of my life, so we can got on our private jet (AP) and heeaded over to Egypt. After around two hours, we arrived at the pyramids. We walked over to teh nearest one.
"Wow," Alex commented, "I didn't realize they were so... big."
"Well duh..." helen replied, "They're called the great pyramids for a reason!"
"Yeah, I mean if you wnated to climb it, it would hhave to be called the wimpy pyramids!" Jenny snickered.
"Oh shut up." Alex blushed," I can do this one. it's made out of bricks. i climb brick walls all the time."
I raised my eyebrows. "why?"
"No reason," Alex looked away. "Here I go!"
alex went to the corner of the traingle. He put one hand on each side of the flat surfaces and pushed himself up. he was holding on... and fell right off.
"Haha!" Gary laughed, "Loser!"
"As if you could do better!" Alex retorted.
"I bet i can!" Gary boasted.
"Fine! let's see you!" Alex challenged. Gary positioned himself the exact way alex did, but he decided to get mad so he'd be "stronger". He jumped up just like Alex did, and slid right down. But this tiem, he brought a bunch of something down with him. It was some clay and rocks.
"Oh my gosh!" i scremed, "You BROKE the pyramid!"
"No I didnt... I just tore it. no problem," Gary defended himself, "adn this is for you." Gary poured the dirt into Jenny's hands, expecting her to be mad.
"oh cool!" Jenny squealed, "This is awesome! just like me!" I rolled my eyes.
Suddenly, we heard a roaring. The pyramid was falling. Gary actually took out a lot more than we thought. The dirt all just fell on the floor.
"RUN!" Joseph screamed. As if we needed reminding.
We sprinted as fast as we could, for as long as we could, tryign our best to stay together. The entire pyramid toppled. And as Helne said, its a GREAT pyramid, so yeah, we RAN.
"Dont' look back!" Alex yelled. I was runnign faster than him, so when i turned back (he, it's just like that. if you're told to immediatly NOT to do something, you do it. its ur instinct.) I saw him looking back too!
"speak for yourself..." I muttered. i noticed we all were looking back, but still running as fast as we could, i turned forward adn ran into something soft. All i rmember was some glitter and 6 thuds right next to me. next thing i knew, I was unconcious.

chapter 5


today we woke up at 4 in the morning to put the stuffed ducks and cows in the boys' room. we snuck into their suite and carefully put them down. eww... they all drool. oh whatever. we carefully took a piece of string and tied it to one of the ducks and put it right in front of josephs face. when we were done, it was around 5, and we were kind of sleepy, so we set their alarm clock 2 6 so so we didnt fall asleep before they found out, cuz then we couldn't see their reaction. aww man. they also snore, but i guess thats good, since none of them moved. (we also found out alex talks about monkeys in his sleep)
an hour later, we heard a scream. a high pitched one. i might add. we all looked at each other, thinking the same thign. Joseph.
he burst into our room.
"ohmigawd!" he yelled, "Theres a friggin' duck in my face! with beady little eyes adn everythign!"
we all pretended to just wake up.
"you.. you guys... ugh!" he screamed.
"joseph, what are you talkign about?" i asked, pretending to yawn.
"you know what ii'm talkign about!" he started, "but you know what? it's okay. ii forgive you."
"Forgive me for what??" Jenny asked, grinnign. i hope he couldn't see that well in teh dark.
"whatever, just keep playign along. I don't care; we can all just forget this." he laughed, "good night. sorry for botherign you guys."
we should've known something was fishy, but i guess we were too tired adn let sleep come upon us. before i closed my eyes, i caught a glikmpse of joseph leaving, but then i fell asleep.
as it turns out, right after joseph walked out of the room, he went back to his suite, woke up the others, adn they all came back with... buckets of water. they splashed us till we were soaking wet adn we yelled at the because it was ice cold.
"This is how i felt when i woke up and stepped on a cow!" gary yelled.
"Did you know cows are very important to india's religion, hinduism??" helen inquired.
"if htye knew how many hamburgers I ate at mcdonalds they'd kill me," James muttered
"guys! just get up and go change!" I cried, "Today's the day we show the indians how to evaporate seawater to make salt!"
"oh... right," the boys thought.
we oeft around 8 am and went to our limo. (yeah... we have one!) people were giving us weird looks because we were in such an expensive car. or maybe bbecause of the color. see, the girls wanted blue, james wanted greeen, joseph wanted orange, alex didnt' care, and gary wanted black. i guess we were being so demanding and rude that the guy just splashed all teh colors all over, adn now our limo resembles the color of puke.
Anyways, the ride was mostly silent except for james commenting oce in a while, sayign things ike, "look. there's the Deccan Plateau," or "we're on teh northern plains," and "look. there's the himiilayas!"
We all just rolled our eyes as he continued pointing out various physical landforms from the book in his lap. when we finally got there, we were greeted warmly as we taught each person how to evaporate ti. one man even said that he would open up a salt factory.
"ha ha! i TOLD you!" Gary laughed at jenny.
"whatever! usually i'm rite!" Jenny responded.
"yeah right!" gary scremed.
"oh shut up!" Jenny yelled, runnign after him.
in the end, we all high-fived each other and laughed and joked. just hanging around with our besst buds. the Asian posse had solved yet another mystery!
"CHeers to us!!" Alex yelled.
"Cheers to us!" we repeated.
Eyes were on us again, but this time, i didnt care.
oh... and next up is our adventure in egypt!

Chapter 4

this morning the girls woke up with syrup in our hair thanks to a prank Joseph made up to get us back for taking too long in the morning. Good job. Now we have to take longer because we have 2 shower. First wae have to go to the taj mahal to meet the presiidentish person. we decided on my idea, since it was the only one that wouldnt get us in trouble with the government.
once we got there, the prime minister was doing an awkward pose that looked similar to a pretzel. we asked the attndant what hee was doing (the prime minister), adn the attndant said he was prayign to Buddha.
"i pray to Buddha," alex commented, "but i never wound up looking like osmething u buy at walmart."
"He's very.... into it," the attndant defended. while we were waiting, we noticed this short lady painting. (the lady is not painting, but there is a lady in the painting)
"who's that?" Gary wondered, "She's about as short as me"
"That's Indira Ghandi," James explained, "Wife of Mohandas Ghandi."
"That's correct, little boy," the Prime minister said, "You are very smart!"
"Why thank-" James started, "Hey! who are you calling little? I'm the tallest one out of all the boys!"
"HEY!" Alex screamed.
"Whatever," I said, "Stop fighting shorties"
But as usual, no one was listenign to me. James was too busy looking at a map of India.
"Did you guys know-" everyone groaned as he started "India is a subcontinent?"
"Uh... right." Jenny mumbled," You said that already!"
"India also has a bunch of deltas!" GAry mentioned.
"Wow.... I'm impressed!" Jenny said.
"D-E-L-T-A! what does that spell? Delta!" Helen cheered.
"um.. Helen?" Joseph asked.
"Yeah?" Helen answered
"Don't do that." He responded.
"oh.. okay." Helne blushed.
"Okay, i'm confused," I said, "what's a subcontinent and what's a delta?"
"A subcontinent is a country that has different geographic featrues than other parts of the continent," Jenny explained, "And a delta is sediment deposited at the mouth of the river"
"whoa," I laughed. "You have good vocabulary too!"
"what's your point?" Jenny asked.
"nothing... it's just if you and james werent family..." I formed a heart with my hands.
Everyone burst out laughing. Well, except for James and Jenny of course. James gave me an icy glare that made me go, "heh... just kidding!"
After taht moment, we were all sort of flushed adn quickly told the Prime minister our idea and left. After all our arguing adn joking around, it was almost 7. We ordered room service, chatted a bit, and went to bed.


in my dreams, it's as if the skies are painted,
it seems like such an easy job to do,
in reality, the skies are smoky gray
as apposed to that wonderful blue

in my dreams, the trees are emerald,,
with blossoming flowers, and green leaves everywhere
in reality, the treees are cut down to make
supermarkets taht sell products: food and hair

In my dreams, the grass is green
on EVERYONE'S side
In reality, where grass should be, there is dirt
no place for easter eggs to hide

in my dreams, everyone is polite,
no teasing, no hitting, everyone's just nice
in reality, lots of people are cruuel,
bullying, and insulting, not sugar, but spice.

why can't we follow the ways of my dreams?
(you're probably not listening, since we ignore each other quite a lot)
because of cruelty, pollution, and carelessness
the world is going to end a lot faster than we thought


I glan e at him a couple times
he looks at me
i quickly trun away,
scared that he'll see

in the hallway i just smile
as i pass him when i walk by
hee doesnt see me sometimes
if i said i didnt notice, it would bee a lie

when i'm near him i dont' breathe,
just trying to hold it inn.
im just casually talking to my frind
but inside i'm wondering where he's been.

when i'm with him and a couple of friends,
i act like he's just one of the others,
but deep inside he means much more,
than all of teh other brothers.

i think about him everyday,
riight before i go to bed,
but thinking I have a chance with him
is screwing with my head...

(3rd paragraph 1st 2 lines r lies)

chapter 3:


after we got off the plane, we had a nive dinner and were laughing adn jking until helne and jenny strarted singign adn dancing and all eyes were on us. afterwards, we hasd dessert adn discussed ideas on what to do.

"we should let them deal with it themselves,"gary said,"and if they sy no, we shall make the hindu peopel eat cows!" gary obviously thought this was a great idea while the res tof us just stared at him.
"obviously we should let them make a salt factory, dn then they'll tke caare of it," joseph mentioned.
"yeah that could work. that was my second choice..." gary said
everyone just rolled their eyes.
"oh.. that could work... if there was SUCH THING AS A SALT FACTORY!"jenny screamed. eyes were on us again.
"um.. maybe we can evaporate seawater and teach thenm how to do it for their supply of salt!" i wondered aloud.
"but-"the boys all started.
"did you know that India is a subcontinent?" James asked.
"um... right..." everyone mumbled.
It's one am in the mornign. i van't sleep because the boys insisted on coming to our suite and telling scary stories.i got freaked out by oen story gary told about bunnies. to make a long story short, bunnies can be evil, even fluffy white ones... 0.0

chapter two

We all glanced at eachother.
"oh no!" alex cried, "i cant lose my wonderful self! i'm too young 2 die!"
"Do you even KNOW whhat a monsoon is??" Jenny asked
"well... no.." alex mumbled
"It's a bunch of winds that make it reeally windy." helen said
they all stared at helen
"what?"seh asked
"Nothing... ahem." Michelle quickly said
Finally, the plane came to stop as we landed. Michelle pulled out her travel/sorta general journal out of her bag. (yes, that means the rest of the story is in her journal entries)
(sry didnt have neough time today.. bye!_

okay... u know how in s.s. (gt) we have to write a story using those words? well... i made up one story about azn posse-2, ...
here goes

there once were seven kids who called themselves the "asian posse"
they consist of:
Michelle-she is a smart girl who bosses people around
Jenny-a smart egomaniac
Helen-a smart loud girl
Alex-a talkative boy
Gary-a strong boy
James-a.... big vocabulary boy
Joseph-a peppy boy
(i had 2 find something nice about everyoen xD)
Togethere, they are a very good group. they travel all over the world solving problems and arguing. Thye are all a family and have lost their parents who used to be detectives. they all wanted to follow their parent's footsteps. Their next stop was Hawaii!
on the plane, (their parents were very wealthy adn willed all thhier money to the kids) they were arguing about what to do about the problem, which was that india had run out of salt.
"Whatever. just let them eat without salt. thye're making such a big deal abotu it." Gary complained.
"Well, you do need salt to live!" Jenny explained
"yeah gary!" Alex exclaimed.
"We also need clothes." Helen mentioned
After a moment, Joseph and Michelle both went "awkward..."
"ANYWAYS," James said, glancing at Helne, "How are we supposed to help?"
"Oh. That's easy, " GAry chuckled, "We just need to steal some form the salt factory."
"And if that would work, how would we bring it?" Helne asked, "OH YEAH! i didnt think so!"
"Uh... we just fly in our private jet, duh." alex saiid.
"um... no. what if it runs out?" Jenny asked.
"Yeah but-" Alex started
"Cause you can like-" Gary started
"did you know hawaii is an archipelego?" James asked
Everyone jsut looked at him.
"Well yeah. I mean, isnt that a group of pielands or something?" Joseph asked
"Islands" Michelle corrected
"I would like to live on a pieeland...."Joseph started to drool....
"Dude." Alex pointed out.
"Oh!" Joseph cried. "heh... you didnt see that...."
"Um... yeah we did." everyone said.
As Joseph blushed, the pilot said "we are having some techinical difficulties thanks to a monsoon." the plane bumped up a couple of times.....

To be continued (thats all i have so far!)

oh! and check out jennys! its sooo cool

2day was sooo awesome!!!

omg... claudia sed she would pay joseph $20 if he would dunk his toe 2 his face underwater at pecan park lake. he did, adn then like.... claudia took his ipod.. adn duh... he wanted it back, and.. caludia.. well.... lets say gravity pulled it down, adn it fell under teh gazebo!

of course, joseph wanted 2 go get it, adn liek.... the only way we could ewas 2 go under teh gazebo, which was slightly small, but luckily.. scrawny little jjoseph could fit down tehre, well... sum parts of it. (jjk!!) and the place nearest 2 the ipod was 2 small 4 him, so he suggested we dig 2 make the hole bigger, but apparently, our only tools were sticks, hands, tennis balls, a squishy football, and some journals, so veto with taht idea.

there was another section where teh whole was bigger, though not very big, but big enough so that even ur fat reporter coudl fit.. xDD

of course, it was far from the ipod, and joseph insisted on digging a hole, and then when i was looking 4 his ipod, i mentioned taht it was slightly creepy. i saw something under there that looked liek either a turnip or a chopped off skull. of course, everyone thot i was a lunatic as usual. then, once joseph FINALLY got teh guts 2 go down tehre, he found out that the "turnip" was actually the head of a DUCK! and IT WAS ALIVE! he screamed and jumped out. now u may think he was a wimp, but teh rest of us were afraid 2 get our CLOTHES dirty. so i guess... hes not THAT wimpy. anyways, it took some convincing 2 get him 2 go down again, but finally he did, adn we all were cheering him on. i was watching from a particularly close spot, and thot he had left, but actually, i screamed when he went "michelle??" lol.

anyways, he finally got it, and he passed it 2 me, and we finaly got on with wat we were gonna do anyways. :D

if u wannna kno more about it, email me or claudia, joseph, yanan, becca, stacy, john, or kevin.
