The Twilight Zone

I like The Twilight Zone. It is an old t.v. show. It is scary because you don't know what's going to happen and it teaches you a lesson. My favorite episode is "Beauty is in The Eye of The Beholder". It is about a girl in a hospital with bandages around her head. Doctors and nurses are trying to help her look attractive. You have to see the show to find out what happens.

Tasmanian Devils

Tasmanian devils are cool and awesome. The devils live on an island called Tasmania, south of Australia. They are marsupials which means they have pouches for their babies. About fifty babies are born and forty-six die. Four live because there are four nipples and the babies stick to them for one hundred days. Afterwards they leave the pouch and stay with mom for another fifteen weeks.
These marsupials fight other smaller Tasmanian devils. Whoever loses ends up in the stomach of the winner. Tasmanian devils eat anything and everything like rotting corpses' teeth, bones and innerds. The devils also eat fruit if it is available.
To find out more about the devils go to your library and the Internet.

Marvelous Medusa

Medusa is my favorite mythical creature because she can turn people into stone and she's a girlfriend to Poseidon, king of the sea. She's in the Percy Jackson series book: The Lightning Thief.
The series is a must-read. You learn about Greek mythology while enjoying the adventures of Percy and his friends. We're on book 3: The Titan's Curse.

Halloween Walk

We went to a preserve at 8pm on Halloween night. There were decorative skeletons with different colored lights blinking on and off. Lanterns dimly lit the dark. There was hot cider that smelled cinnamony and yummy treats. The workers gave the kids glow-in-the dark necklaces because it was black as a witch's cat and they didn't want to lose anybody to the zombies in the woods.
While we were walking in the woods, you could hear screaming in the distance which startled us. The mud beneath our feet squished and splattered on my black, leather boots. We walked over thin, wooden bridges and ended up at a witches' encampment.
Two witches sat in front of a haunted rock covered in cobwebs, spiders and skeletons. They told us scary stories about eating livers. The witches looked hideous with warts and green skin and black hair and hats. They cackled so fiercely. I'm sure you could hear it in Massachusetts. Luckily, the witches were nice on that night and let us leave peacefully. I don't know about the other groups, though.
Then we walked to the cemetery which looked creepy. Bones were scattered by one of the tombstones. A nun wearing a necklace made of bones told us a story about a stranger and body parts. The woman in the story died.
After the story we ended up back where we started. We drank hot cider, ate cookies, and hung out with friends.
I would go back next year because you get to walk in the dark woods and listen to spooky stories and drink hot cider and eat delicious cookies. You also get a grab bag full of goodies.
