Without further ado...... My trip to Colorado!

Leaving home:

Texas: where the clouds are made of cotton candy and unicorn fur.

Golden arches in new mexico!

Thats what I like about...... Denver???

The carrot's family reunion. (no this is not a painting.... Just really well edited photograph)
We're HERE!

All those littles specks are paper airplanes..... People get bored.

Some dude started a wave!

Then we hiked....

And hiked.

And hiked....

And guess what guys?! We hiked!!!!!

Gabe didn't do much hiking.

See he just sat.

After emerging from deep in the mountains we went to a thrift store..... Where I saw THE worst tie ever. EVER.

Eh. What's up doc?

So that's about all the pictures I took! What would you guys think if I did a weekly adventure like this where I take pictures and caption them and stuff..... You like this, yes. *strokes beard*

NaNoWriMo, absence, and why I don't write fan fiction.

Hey Guys! So as always I have been entirely absent of the bloggerverse. Call me John, but this post comes to you in three parts!

Part one: I am doing NaNoWriMo this year, are you? This is my first year and I just wanted to ask: who else is? If you are just comment below or send me a tweet (I am always on twitter) we could have word battles or something. Yea? (I said yea as another ode to john green)NERDFIGHTASTIC!!!

Part two: So in my absence I decided two things:
2. Uncoolcarrot is starting to look a little busy and my post have lost their vigor.
So during November I will not blog HERE, the site will be under construction going back to the perfect simplicity of the earlier carrot. But I should add, is my writing blog and I will update my word count and stuff there...... Yea?

Part three: why I don't write fan fiction. I've always thought fanfic to be a bit cheesy. I feel that if an author creates a character, they should completely control that character. If you took one of the muppets and set them in the middle of Hogwarts, is it still THE muppets? No! It's a felt frog at a school for wizards. I for one find it un-original. Find your own character.

Disney channel is EVIL

Modern entertainment is, lets face it, terrible. Cartoon network writers are on angel dust. Nickelodeon can't think of any lasting idea, therefore squeeze everything they could possibly get out of spongebob. Then there's the dreaded Disney channel. Ooooohhhh disney channel. Where do I start?! Disney channel caters to the modern idea of ten year olds being teens, and bad ones at that. Shows like "Hannah montanna" and "Shake it up" would make Walt Disney roll over in his grave. Anyone that has ever even heard of me would know one thing if not anything else: I love "a goofy movie"
But other Disney animation too:
Goof troop
House of mouse
Timon and pumbaa
Rescue rangers
Shall I go on? When I was younger I could go and WATCH reruns of these on the TELEVISION! Now you have to have the EVERLOVIN OSHBEGOSH BOX SET SEASON!!!!! (or a lot of patience with the Internet) to watch these.
Plus it's not JUST the shows used to have games, fun ones.
I know I sound like such a child but if I wanted to play EVERLOVIN Hannah craptanna I would go to!!!!!!
My point: they ripped my OSHBEGOSH childhood off of the Internet and out of my hands. If I wanted to show my brother or kids, I couldn't.
So are you with me?!

Katie Alender interview!

Here is my interview with this lovely author:

That wrote this fantastic book:

Reader question from SHADOWHUNTER on goodreads:

How did you get started writing?

I've been writing pretty much since third grade. In terms of novels, I
was working in development for TV, coming up with show ideas for kids
and teens. We worked on so many big ideas that never went anywhere,
because the networks were looking for something else--I wanted to
write something that would take an idea all the way from the first
"what if?" all the way to finding out the ending! So I decided to
write a book.

Now MY questions!

Carrot: Favorite authors?
Katie: Paula Danziger, Jane Austen, Amy Tan, DH Lawrence, Roald Dahl, Stephen
King, JK Rowling

C: Do you listen to music while you write? If so do you think it affects
the plot at all?

K: I don't listen to music at the exact time I'm writing... I listen to
music between writing sessions! I have a playlist for each book that
definitely reflects the mood and feeling of the entire project, or
even specific scenes and character relationships. I'd say the plot
affects the music rather than the other way around.

Zombies or Unicorns *hint ZOMBIES*
But if I choose unicorns, my magical unicorn friend can help me skewer
zombies while I ride around on his back. So...

C: A Goofy Movie or Scooby Doo?
I never saw A Goofy Movie! *cringe* Dare I say it was "after my time"?
Scooby Doo by default! But really I prefer the Jetsons. Love that
futuristic world!

C: What is the best "fan encounter" ever on tour?

K: I've never been on tour, but I've been to lots of events and met tons
of fans. I would say one of the most memorable was recently when some
authors and book bloggers went out to dinner after an event. I was
driving a bunch of bloggers, and a city bus almost drove right into my
car! So now I have a reputation for being a terrible driver, even
though it was totally not my fault!

And lastly I have to ask:

C: Best "Evil Squirrel" story

K: Well, right now our evil squirrels are the ones who eat all of our
peaches before they're ripe. The worst part is that they'll get a
peach down from the tree, take one little bite, and then leave it
sitting on the railing. It's like they don't even want the
peaches--they just don't want us to have them! Another crazy squirrel
encounter I had was at my old house, when I looked out into the
backyard one day to see a squirrel stretched out spread-eagle in the
grass, totally motionless. I thought maybe he'd gotten electrocuted on
the power lines and fallen, and I was worried about having a dead
squirrel in my yard. So I watched him for a couple of hours, and he
didn't move. Then, all of a sudden, he got up and left. I still wonder
what the heck he was doing.

C: And that's all! Thanks for doing this!

K:My pleasure!

Here's a page with useful links to images and all katie's webby info.

Who should I interview next? (please tell me emails or contact info). ~and remember to eat your carrots!

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

Ok you can call off the search party.

I'm back!!!!!! *applause* and I interviewed Katie Alender, wrote a post for Child Of Apollo on
re-reading, memory, emotions -their effect on your writing-, and scenery changes. I didn't blog much because was also working on a video card for Kristina Horner who has vocal nodes and had to drop out of summer tour watch it here:

YouTube Video

Um. Hi.

So yeah I've been kind of procrastinating this week soooooo yeah how's life? I really have nothing to talk about. So how's about some random sideways screenshots of a goofy movie!

Grrrrrrrrrr I have a problem. Aka I've been watching a goofy movie instead of blogging and interviewing Katie Alender gosh I just love this movie so much!
Yeah I'm gonna send Katie her questions tonite BEFORE I watch a goofy movie see. Smart. ~and remember to eat your carrots!

Saturday, July 16, 2011

What the?!/ it's meeeeeeeeeee!!!!!

Wow. All I can say is wow. 15 FOLLOWERS? really?! Wow So how's about a picture of MEEEEEEEE Because I'm adorable.

I think it's funny they Both say gadget. Ah rescue rangers.

~and remember to eat your carrots!

Friday, July 15, 2011

Oh crap! Thank God it's still technically July 15 FLASH FICTION BLOGFEST!

It's independence day and the unexpected happens.....

I walked quietly towards the food table I counted about fifty bowls of potato salad and recoiled. I dropped my empty plate in the trash. Forth of July food is not the greatest. To say the least. I plopped down at an empty table and seconds later I was joined with my cousin Zach. "Sucks we can't have fireworks. Burn ban, smurn sman." he said suddenly. I replied with a nod and sigh. POP! we all turned around wide eyed. To a fire that came suddenly out of nowhere and spreading over the grass like, um wildfire. It caught the corner of the tent and people swarmed in panic. Once the fire was finally out the park was practically in ashes a grumble seemed to let out over the entire body of people and soon everyone had driven away. Thank God, I thought. I don't have to eat the potato salad, I mean nobody died!

~and remember to eat your carrots!

I know I can't stop talking about this movie but LOOK!

Grrrrr I know I haven't been blogging like at all for a while soooooo..... Let me show you something cool and prove some people wrong. Ha. People say "A GOOFY MOVIE" is just a lost bit of animation nobody cared about, a movie long advertisement of "GOOF TROOP" the 90s tv show, and a waste of tv air time. THOSE PEOPLE ARE WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!! *gameshow buzzer* it has gone unappreciated even after it has effected so much. The dance in the picture above "the perfect cast" is startlingly similar to "crank dat soulja boy" a well known dance of today. The fake teen sensation Powerline is a representation of Michael Jackson who dies fifteen years later suddenly becoming a GINORMOUS DEAL even to those who hadn't paid a second glance to him before. This movie is SO DRASTICALLY UNAPPRECIATED! If you went up to 100 people in a focus group and asked who there favorite girl Disney character 90% would name some disney princess only 10% would say Roxanne. ~and remember to eat your carrots!

my fave non nerdy quotes!!! (by ally)

Marilyn Monroe:
"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."
— Marilyn Monroe

"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring."
— Marilyn Monroe

"If you're gonna be two-faced at least make one of them pretty."
— Marilyn Monroe

"When it comes down to it, I let them think what they want. If they care enough to bother with what I do, then I'm already better than them."
— Marilyn Monroe

"Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world."
— Marilyn Monroe

"We should all start to live before we get too old. Fear is stupid. So are regrets."
— Marilyn Monroe

"keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about." ~ Marilyn Monroe

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Oh yeah.... I have a blog!

*tired sigh* why? Why am I blogging?!?! Oh it's just that the carrot owns me. I. Don't. Know. What. To. Blog. About!!!!! Grrrrrr.... This post is sooooo boring! Ugh! How's about a sneak peek at my NaNoWriMo novel? Yeah that's it! Here goes nothing!

I pulled my phone out of my pocket. Dead. I pushed the keyboard lock button out of habit. Dirt. Sun. Rock. That coke bottle has potential. I snapped a picture with my camera. Amarillo is a bit.... Erm, dry. It hasn't rained here in at least three months. And probably won't for another four. Lord help us. I stuffed my camera into my yellow *well it was yellow about three years ago* bag and started back to my house. I saw a boy on roller-skates obviously showing off I scoffed. He was blonde and tall he did a little spin and winked I turned away dramatically my blue and brownish hair flipping limply behind me. THUMP. I ran into a tree and fell into the grass. Well that ought to run the stalker off. No such luck. "Hey blue hair! You ok?" No. "yea blondie, I'm just peachy."
"Um." he said holding up a smashed blue pile of glass and plastic ignoring my "blondie" comment. "is this your--" "My camera!" I shot to my feet *or tried to* a piercing pain like a needle stuck in my ankle and I sat back down with a plop. The boy offered a hand "I'm Jay." I grinned. "Xia." I said taking the hand. "I'll help you home." he offered, I looked down at the rollerblades "Are you sure you can skate me home?" "Yea." he replied "I'm pretty good with them." he started skate stomping while I leaned on his shoulder. My house was pretty close and my ankle felt better I stood up strait and started worrying about my camera. "I'm sorry about your camera." he said still gripping my hand it's like he read my mind. "it's not your fault." I coaxed. Though it totally was his fault. "I'll get you a new one." he said. Did he not know that camera cost 200 dollars? "How would you be able to? That camera was pretty expensive." " I'll even get you a better one my.... Um parents have money." I stepped onto the street corner. "Come over Monday my house is the purple one two streets down." "ok whatever blondie."
Sure that'll happen. "watch it Tia." he warned "Xia!" I said halfway down the street. I pushed the red door to my house open. It creaked. Loudly. My older sister leaned against the stairwell smirking "you like him." she taunted. "He pushed me into a tree and broke my camera." she rolled her eyes still smirking. "and then he walked you home and asked you out." she had to do this? Now? "Oh just go fix your hair or something Cait!" I stomped off into my room and pushed the door closed. My room was small I had a bed made with black stained wood. A blanket on it with a black and blue paisley print. My walls were painted teal but you wouldn't be able to tell because it was covered with black and white photos I took. On the floor was a beanbag chair *blue* and a lap desk *also blue* covered with papers and pens. On my bed was a black laptop. The screen was covered with files, Some entitled NOVEL others SHORT STORY CONTEST ENTRY12 or 13 and so on. I write. Like a lot and I have been since I could hold a pencil. "We need to go!" a voice said. A girl about my age materialized out of thin air "now!" she cried "go where? What?" I stuttered "the car. Away. Anywhere but here Xia!" she said grabbing my hand and practically dragging my out the door and into a blue limo. "where are you taking me?!" I struggled out of her grip but I was already in the car. A man in his thirties turned around from the drivers seat. "the safe house." he said as if that explained everything. I guess Jay won't be getting my visit Monday. "that boy was not to be trusted. Understand?" Am I that predictable or did I miss some big mind reading 101 class?! We drove in tense silence. We stopped at a white building and I was yanked out of the car and pushed towards the door. The white building was cold. I was given a blue plaid skirt and a white shirt. A woman in a black pant-suit showed me to a room where I changed. The woman came back and gave me a schedule and watch.

6:00 PGEP training
7:00am breakfast
7:30am equipment
8:00am tech training
9:00am invisibility
10:00am fighting
11:00am clean up
12:00am lunch
1:00pm survival tech.
2:00pm clean up
3:00pm fitness
4:00pm meditation
5:00pm mind reading training
6:00pm bed

What. The. Heck. There were ALOT of things wrong with this. I didn't want to test the woman's patience so I picked the worst issue with this. "Bed? At six?" "Da." the woman replied in a thick Russian accent. "you guys must really be party animals." I retorted. I saw a flash of pale skin and nails and my arms were pinned to the wall and the woman's nails dug into my skin. "children are seen not heard." she said grumbling. She let go of my hands leaving three tiny marks on each arm. "Go to bunk five and STAY THERE." she ordered. I stomped back into the room and she glared at me with catlike eyes until I was under the covers. I tossed and turned all night. It seems I finally got to sleep the second I was supposed to wake up. I had no idea were I was. I got out of bed and watched fifty girls my age bustling and whispering and pointing. At me. I fingered my hair. I guess they've never seen blue hair before. A second later it's like a bell rang in their minds. They all stood up straight in a tight jerk and walked in perfect line out the door. I didn't follow. The woman with the russian accent came in with her hands poised around a long thin stick, and I don't think it was made for peaceful use. "come with me.... Girl." she said girl like she would have said evil. I obeyed silently. The woman said her name was Cara but I would only call her by ma'am. We walked in tired silence into a sad black room with a chair in the middle like you would see in a hair salon. Cara walked head held high into the room and stood behind the chair. She motioned me to sit in the chair. I did. An hour past and my hair was blonde. "You have training in one hour." "what about P-um GG? or whatever?" "That." she replied "is for the boys." I walked "outside" aka a glass room where I was greeted by pointing.... And staring. A girl with black hair and a light complexion walked over to me. Eyes diverted. To her. "ignore them." she said. Again with the mind reading?

And that's it! Hope you like it! ~and remember to eat your carrots!

This. Day. Could. NOT. get. Any. Stinking. Better.

This morning I got up at 7 to go ride my bike around the bad neighborhood and deliver lunches to children who can't get them. It was amazing. There the best moment ever is when a little three year old girl in tattered clothes and covered in dirt can smile ear to ear and say "thank God bless you!" it just makes your whole day worth while. After that I sat and wrote out some outlines for my novel *WHICH I LOVE*. I finish that and stroll over to my blog and *BAM!* Beth STINKING Revis FOLLOWS my blog!!!! If you don't know who she is she is one of my fave authors she wrote this book
