Pavlov bells, Pavlov bells,
Pavlov all the way!
Oh what Pavlov it is to Pavlov
Over Pavlov's grave!

|Interesting fact: We saw 2 Hawaii license plates in a row-literally! The second car was right behind the first!|
Please note that all of these were taken in a moving vehicle, which explains the shakiness on some. :) I think they came out pretty good....
Once we got there, we had a great time in New Jersey! (I would have blogged more, but we were all gaming so much-too much. ;) ) One of my relatives gave me an epic (it really is-this isn't an exaggeration!) zine book- "Watcha Mean, What's A Zine?" The whole book looks like it's a zine itself, and provides all kinds of cool tips and addresses to zine libraries! Thanks, Aunt K!
We got to do some zining ourselves. My grandparents, on a road trip in August, decided to pass on a typewriter to me, and now we're using it for many purposes*. My younger cousin M decided to use it to make her own zine: "M's Information Of Mystery." It was filled with articles on mysteries, myths and why Selena Gomez should write her own books, as well as free coupons to places like a concert or island getaway. Another cousin, H, and I attempted to make another issue of our zine, "It Might Seem Odd To You"-we never finished. :( Oh, well, we can always finish it at OBX! The one article we did get to crank out was about H's hatred towards spinach, supported by the newly-formed Anti-Spinach Union (an organization firmly opposed by L and S and their newly-formed Spinach Lovers Union).
Well! I think that's enough ketchup for your metaphorical hot dog (read: I need to quit ranting about the "magic" of copiers ;) ).
Also, if you have any snow superstitions, please post them in the comments! I've been hearing about a possible sleet coming our way....
(Sorry for all the random font switching. I had to copy and paste part of this post)

*We also used it for some secret correspondence and spy activity later on.
**The movie was "The Adventures of Tintin". Very good movie! Lots of good chase scenes. :)

Anyways, I am now in Maryland, home of L, S (blogger for Wii Little Movies), and M. We have been having fun with my typewriter, and are trying to launch spy stakeouts on each other! (So far, nobody is getting anywhere.) Did I mention we didn't spend too much time on the computer?
Today, we're going to New Jersey! My other cousin, H, will be there, and we have plans to make another issue of our zine.* My camera was finally repaired, too, so Cousin Studios is back!
I'll have another post (which is hopefully more thought-provoking then this, possibly with poetry) when we get there.
In the meantime, without my epic HTML.... :'(
Blog Ya Later!
*Zines are small handmade books that are like magazines, but randomer. Some have a clear topic, some are comics, and some are filled with random poetry and art. You can hide zines on the street to brighten a person's day-it's part of a harmless art form called guerrilla art. Really, it's harmless. It creates explosions in thought, however. CJ learned how to make zines at her awesome summer art camp.
