Apollo and his Awesomeness (and is that a word?)

Im still in my Percy Jackson phase;) So todays quote is from the book in the series that my mom is reading aloud to us! Apollo is one of my favorite characters (who couldnt love the Sun God?!?) but oh how I love Percy...
Quote of the Day

""I feel a haiku coming on." Apollo cleared his throat and held up one hand dramatically.

'Green grass breaks through snow
Artemis pleads for my help
I am so cool.'

"That last line was only four syllables," Artemis said.

Apollo frowned. "Was it?"

"Yes. What about, 'I am so big-headed'?"

"No, no, that's six syllables. Hmm." He started muttering to himself.

Zoe Nightshade turned to us. "Lord Apollo has been going through this haiku phase ever since he visited Japan. 'Tis not as bad as the time he visited Limerick. If I'd had to hear one more poem that started with, 'There was once a goddess from Sparta--"

"I've got it!" Apollo announced. "'I am so awesome'. That's five syllables!" He bowed, looking very pleased with himself. "

Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief!!!

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief came out on Thursday/Friday at Midnight!!! I went to the Midnight showing with 21 other people! 16 people from my church and 5 from school! It was ridiculous amounts of fun! We took up 3 rows and the other people in the theater probably wanted to murder us because we were so loud;)
I actually really liked the movie...it was nothing like the book, which was sad and good at the same time...if it had actually followed the book I would have been really nit picky and found a lot of bad things about it. But since it wasn't anything like the book I just watched it as a totally different thing and really enjoyed it! Percy and Poseidon are 2 of the most beautiful people on this Earth!!! I just want to look at them for forever! ;)

This is my favorite movie poster...its actually the same picture as the cover of the book except with Logan instead of a drawing:)

Here is our 3 main hero's!!! Percy (as Beautiful as always;), Annabeth, and Grover!

Here is Poseidon! I know this isn't a photo from the movie but they haven't released any of him yet sadly. Isn't he just delicious?:)

Here is another picture of Percy and Annabeth (I couldn't help myself) They are both beautiful!

Here is Grover! He was hilarious!!! I love him too!

Quote of the Day:

This quote is from the book not the movie but oh well

"Hades raised an eyebrow. When he sat forward in his throne, shadowy faces appeared in the folds of his black robes, faces of torment,as if the garment was stitched of trapped souls from the Fields of Punishment, trying to get out. The ADHD part of me wondered, off-task, whether the rest of his clothes were made the same way. What horrible things would you have to do in your life to get woven into Hades' underwear?"
