Yesterday I decided that I was going to watch some new movies on Starz since we only get it for three months. I watched the Proposal which is a ok movie. Then I watched The Taking of Psalm 123 which I liked the most out of the new movies that I saw. Then I watched District 9 which is a movie about aliens trying to escape from earth. I thought it was interesting but, I thought it was kind of gross when they were cutting the main character's hands off. I had fun watching all those new movies since I haven't been able to watch any of the new movies anymore since we stopped getting all the movie channels that play the new movies.

There are two different ways that I've noticed that tamales are made. The kind you get at a restaurant is wrapped in banana leafs and is cylinder shaped. The kind that Rosa makes is also wrapped in banana leafs but, is pillow shaped. Which I think is the El Salvadorian way of making them since she is from El Salvador. I think that they both taste about the same and I was wondering which kind of tamale you would prefer. I would prefer both of them because I like the way that both of them taste.

When I was listening to the Tears for Fears albums with my little sister Julia yesterday I noticed that most of the songs that I liked that were from the 80's were by them. I also found out that most of the songs that I heard on the albums were different versions of the songs that I've heard. I noticed this when I was listening to Mad World that it sounded different from the version I've heard that I thought was the original. I liked listening to the 83 album by Tears for Fears.

After a really dry fall it looks like we are finally going to be getting some rain this week. They are forecasting a chance of rain for the rest of this week into the New Year. Which is a ironic way to be ending this year since its been one of the driest years we've had in Houston. It's been clear and sunny all year long except for July when we had record breaking rainfall for the month.

My Christmas was good! On Christmas we woke up and unwrapped presents. Then we went to my Aunt Martha's house and we ate lasagna. The reason we had the lasagna was because we hadn't had it in a while since our oven hasn't been working and we needed it to make the lasagna. So Martha decided that we should have lasagna for our Christmas dinner. I liked it alot and I thought it was delicious! Then we went and unwrapped the presents that Martha and her Husband Tim gave us. They gave me these two books about dogs which I liked because I don't know much about dogs and I thought that it was good that she gave me those books so that I can learn about dogs from them. It was cold on Christmas which I didn't like but, I was happy because I got to wear my new jacket from Marshall's that my mom gave me. I thought that I had a good Christmas!

My older sister Tamara who lives in Dallas brought home her kitten named Oliver. She drove From Dallas to Houston with Oliver in a cage. We put Oliver in my little sister Julia's room and we made a litter box for it and we put it in her bathroom. When I met Oliver he started hissing at me because I smelled like the other cats that live in my house. I think Oliver is a cute kitten and he reminds me of this cat I had named Pj which looked like Oliver and was grey and white like Oliver is but, he was really fluffy and he had a spot on his face. I was worried that Oliver would be sick after having to be in the car for five hours when he was coming from Dallas to Houston but, he looked ok so I think he's fine. I hope Oliver likes staying in Juila's room and doesn't get sick. I'm happy that I finally got to see Tamara's kitten Oliver.

On December 23, 1989 the temperature got to 6 degrees in Houston. That's colder than when we get those really cold cold fronts. That's the lowest temperature i've seen Houston get into That's alot colder than it usually gets in Houston and it doesn't even get into the low 30's on some winters.

On The Weather Channel website they tell what happened on this day in history. I saw that today in 1984 there was a hurricane named Lili in the Atlantic Ocean with 80 mph winds. I was surprised that there would have been a hurricane this late in December since it was almost a month after the end of the hurricane season and the waters are usually too cold in the Atlantic Ocean at this time of the year to form a hurricane. I think that's interesting that there was a hurricane this late in December.

Recently my Yahoo account was hacked and was sending spam to my sister Julia. I had to change my email and my computer has been acting slow and it isn't letting me listen to music. The speakers turn on and work randomly then they stop working. I think this is annoying and I wish that they would stop hacking my computer!

My favorite ice cream is the cookies and cream ice cream from Blue Bell because it has oreos and vanilla ice cram in it. Which tastes good! It tastes like the oreo Mcflurry at McDonalds. So you can make your own oreo Mcflurry from the cookies and cream ice cream .

I just looked at what the temperatures were going to be over the next week and I saw that the temperatures were going to be pretty warm with the highs in the 60's and 70's. The lows are only going to be in the low 40's which isn't warm but, it is alot warmer than it has been over the past few weeks when the temperatures got into the low 30's and high 20's. So there is going to be a break from the cold temperatures for the next few days.

Since it was my birthday I wanted to try a new food that I have never eaten before. I didn't know where to eat so I decided to go to Carrabba's and try something different from the menu. I decided to get the mancotti which is a pasta rolled into different cheeses. It kind of tasted like the lasagna but, the cheese was a little different in it. I liked it and I thought it was good but, I would probably get the lasagna next time. I enjoyed being able to go out to eat and to try something different from the menu which I don't get to do very often so, I was happy to be able to try something different for a change.

The temperatures are going to be below freezing tonight so they gave us a freeze warning for Houston. They said that metro Houston would get up to 2 to 3 hours of freezing temperatures. The temperatures are supposed to get into the mid 20's tonight. That's cold.

It's another week of temperatures being in the 70's and then it changing into the 20's the next day! That's a huge change in temperatures! I wonder why we have been getting really strong cold fronts like this recently. It doesn't usually get that cold in Houston during the winter it usually only gets into the mid 30's during regular winters in Houston. There have been alot of cold fronts that have brought the temperatures to near record lows every week. I think that it's weird that there has been such a drop in temperatures recently.

I've been playing alot of retro games lately because they are alot cheaper now than when they came out. My favorite retro game is Tokyo Highway Battle for the Playstation 1. The graphics aren't that good and the controls aren't really that great either but, it is still a fun game. Especially if you like the Tokyo Xtreme Racer games for the Playstation 2 because it is like a older version of it. I also enjoyed playing Banjo Kazooie for the N64. It was a fun adventure game that I used to play with Faisal, Julia, and Adam when we were kids. I am playing Banjo Tooie wich is the sequel to Banjo kazooie and it is very different from the first one but, is still a really fun game to play. Those are my favorite retro games to play what are yours?

Since dad wanted me to find the videos of when we were kids. I looked at all of the old videos of when were kids and I thought it was funny that we looked so different. Mom and dad looked really different from what they look like now. It was also funny watching all those 1990's shows.

Since I haven't made any of the popcorn my mom bought. I decided to make some because I was going to watch this movie called The Fast and The Furious (1954) on the Turner Classic Movies channel. I thought it was funny that it was the same name as the street racing movie called The Fast and The Furious. The new The Fast and The Furious isn't a remake of the old one but, it also has alot of car racing in it. The old The Fast and The Furious is about this truck driver that gets framed for running another truck driver off the road and he has to run away from the police so he finds this girl who's a race car driver and he goes to this race with her. He tries to hide his identity from the police but, he eventually gets caught and he decides to turn himself in.

After buying the really cheap cat food at Kroger's we finally got them some Friskies. Which is alot better than the food that Kroger makes I don't know if the Kroger food is unhealthy but, it doesn't have much taste and the cats really didn't like it. We had to feed them meat and other left overs so that they would stop begging us for it because they didn't like the Kroger's food. I recommend that you don't buy the Kroger's food and if you want to buy something cheap for your cats I suggest you buy the Pet Pride Meow Mix because that's what we usually feed the cats and they liked it.

Hey! we got a Christmas tree Today! Since we have a Scion Tc we had to put it in the trunk and pull the backseats down to be able to fit the Christmas tree in. That was a problem because I didn't have anywhere to sit because my dad, my older brother, and me went to go get the Christmas tree and there was no more room left in the back for me to sit. So I had to sit on top of the folded seats and hold the Christmas Tree so it wouldn't fall out of the trunk. Luckily our house was right down the street from Kroger's which is where we got our tree from so I didn't have to hold onto the tree for very long. After driving slowly down the street we finally got home and we got the Christmas tree out of the car. We then put it in our house and we got the tree stand out and then we feed it some water

After trying unsuccessfully to get some popcorn my mom finally got me some. I had tried to make some popcorn earlier in the year and unfortunately I had burnt it and it was the last one! Then I got some popcorn when I went to the movies but, they put too much butter in it and it didn't taste good. So now I finally get to make some nice popcorn!

When my dad and I were waiting for our food to be ready at Phoencia. My dad wanted to know what kind of ice cream they were selling and she said that it was Italian ice cream and she offered us a sample of their strawberry ice cream. I thought it tasted good! There was also this ice cream that looked like humus. I asked her about it and she gave me a sample and I thought it tasted like coffee. I liked both of the ice creams and thought they tasted good!

I'm excited to see that they are going to show previews of the last FIA championship! I'm glad that they are going to do this because I've been wanting to see it but, the only channel that was showing it was Bloomberg and we don't get that channel anymore and SPEED can't show it because they have to show all of there other shows and there isn't any time for them to show the FIA championships. So i'm glad that there going to show the previews of the FIA races that were in this championship season.
