   Hi everyone, it's Lily here. Before I go on with the rest of this post, I'd like to ask you something. How many of  you read a book before you watch the movie? Books are a dying art now.
     All right (by the way, misguided people, "alright" is not a word), I'm sure you're wondering why the post is titled "Choses." Heh. Well, it means "things" in French. And things I have to tell you.
    First, a shoutout to our friend Kate, who finally finished her story, "Overwhelmed."  A bit abrupt, and ridiculously sad for such a cute story, I'd say, but still very good, as always.
     Next, an awesome store I found in the mall. It's called Teavana, and it's the best freaking thing since Nutella. No, the second best thing. Nothing measures up to Nutella. Anyway, Teavana is a combination of tea bar and tea emporium. It goes far beyond the basic chai and green tea most Americans know. I've got a...catalog, for lack of a better word here with me, and I'll type out a couple.
 Youthberry- Youthful and fresh, this crisp blushing tea is made from candied pineapple and mango pieces with Fuji and Golden Delicious apples added for spirit. 'Superfruits' red currant and acai berry create a youthful glow in this medley of smart, bright, refreshingly soft white tea. 12.00
    We didn't actually buy any tea, because my dad wanted to ask my mum first, but we plan on doing so very soon. Youthberry was one of a few samples they had out, and it was absolutely delicious. It was more like punch than tea- so even if you absolutely detest tea, you'll like this. And now this, which sounds like nectar (as in the drink of the gods, not flowers):
Slimful Chocolate Decadence: Drawing inspiration from a decadent warm Hawaiian chocolate cake, this oolong blend is a luxurious mix of robust cacao, creamy toasted coconut, and ginger spice that satisfies even the strongest sweet tooth. Pink rose petals add romantic icing to this guilt-free treat. 10.00
And this awesomeness:
Monkey Picked Oolong: As legend has it, Buddhist Monks trained monkeys to gather the youngest leaves from the tip-top of wild tea trees for this special Imperial Reserve blend. The legend lives on, now with the deft hand-plucking of the unbroken, evenly sized leaves that unfurl to create a light, orchid aroma, and the highest grade of oolong in the world. 25.00
    Now, I don't know about you, but I'd like me some monkey picked oolong.
   
    Now, something my dad showed me today- Shark Tank. It's an ABC program, and there are basically five filthy rich people who are the sharks. Entrepreneurs can apply to go on the show and sell part of their company to the sharks. Sometimes, they throw in stuff like mentoring, a celebrity endorsement, etc. It's really interesting to watch- almost like gambling sometimes. Now, they're called sharks for a reason. One lady had this horrible idea- a thingie you attach to your laptop for your sticky notes- and they just ate her alive. I felt kinda bad, but her idea was stupid. The nicest one, in my opinion, is Barbara. And you can learn about some awesome stuff- like the episode I'm watching now, Onesoles. I also like the Snap-Caps, check that out too.
    And something else for you bored people out there- Animal Planet's Pets 101, Dogs 101, and Cats 101. My favorite Pets 101s are the pgymy goat, capybara, and ferret (Dacey's Patronus, if you've been following my fanfiction). As for Dogs 101 and Cats 101, I love the American Eskimo (I need one of those beauties) and the Bengal Cat. And the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Such a cute doggy.
    Eh. That's really it. For all you girls, if you haven't seen it already, check out CuteGirlsHairstyles, on Youtube. It's an amazing channel, and they have three Hunger Games hairstyles already!
    Seen the movie yet? We plan to soon. I'll probably wear Katniss's diagonal Dutch braid, and maybe try her Reaping Day braids on Silvy.
      Lily out! <3 you! Especially if you comment...
