8-)For everyone out there, come to the US, buy a fat package of pop tarts, and have them shipped to the UK. If you can buy things from a company called Costco, you can buy them in bulk. This store is a huge warehouse, and you can buy different items in big bulk. There are many flavors of them too. I prefer the strawberry pop tarts. Do you eat them cold or hot? I can eat them either way, lol, as long as I have a tall glass of milk to accompany them. You might all think me evil, but I really can't stand Willem DaFoe. Not after I watched him in SpiderMan as an evil character. I don't think he's a bad actor, he just doesn't do anything for me. Johnny Depp, though, is awesome. Did you all know that he is going to play Willy Wonka in a remake of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory? No word yet as to when it will be coming to theatres, though. I have a new definition for all of you. It is the russian word for witch-babayaha(phonetically spelled). Babayaha in Russian mythology is a witch who lives in the woods, and her house stands atop chicken legs, and her fence is made of bones of the little children she has killed and eaten. It's the way Russian mothers get their children to behave. Hope you all like it! I am not Russian, just a history, cultural, and movie buff. Let me know what you think, please.
For post levels, go to the Getting Know You on page 12 I think, and they're all there.
Ooh, that's spooky. When I lived in York, and was at my first school (and was also about 5!), I was in a play of Baba Yaga. (That's how my school spelt it. Don't know what the correct spelling is!) There was lots of songs in our version. We had this huge model of Baba Yaga that used to terrify me when I was small, seeing as it was about 8 feet high and took 3 people to operate it!
I liked that story of the chicken leg house though. We mentioned that in the play, but I didn't know about the bone fence!
