Good afternoon and Happy Friday!
Happy Friday. Happy February. Happy February 6th. Whatever you'd like to call it. It's the weekend, and it should be a good one at best. I have a dinner to go to with friends from the Honors Program at my college, and then I have to take a GMAT practice test tomorrow morning. Fun stuff, I know.
However, I have been unable to write as much as I was hoping to this week. But, with the crazy schedule headed my way, writing will be next to impossible until the weekends. Even though this may be the case, I will never forget to blog every weekend.
You can probably understand why I'm blogging on Friday and not Saturday.
Well, for this weekend, I will be talking about Marty the Polar Bear and his comrades (The Magic Video Game). So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride. Or blog post, rather.
Well, Marty is a polar bear. He is considered the leader of the pack, yet he is slightly naive. With the supposed lack of resources that they might have (nothing substantial, such as water or technology), Marty does not know much about goes on in the world besides in the vicinity of the Hawaiian Islands, as well as Texamilio, Galavanti Island, and Wakahakai. Marty seldom mentions Texamilio and Galavanti Island in The Magic Video Game novels. He is pretty "chill." Marty is not uptight at all. He is very relaxed and always wears thick-frame glasses, a polo shirt of some sort, and khaki shorts. He eventually learns how to play the alto saxophone.
Sporto is a walrus who is very athletic. He enjoys pretty much all sports, especially tennis and arm wrestling. This is very obvious when he arm wrestles and plays tennis with Levi. He is also an avid bowler on Wakahakai's well-known bowling team. They seldom have tournaments, but they still call themselves well-known.
Cosmo is a penguin. He is very hysterical and has a bizarre sense of humor. He shouts pretty much everything that comes out of his mouth and he works at a drink vendor in Wakahakai. He likes to go tubing and enjoys a pina colada. Any day.
Jack McFrost is a very sophisticated snowman. He wears a top hat all the time and speaks elegantly. Jack McFrost likes to go bowling as well, but he is more partial to mini-golf. He and his snowman friends go mini-golfing all the time at the local arcade room.
Jefferson is an Eskimo pig. He is the complete opposite of Jack McFrost in that he is not sophisticated. He is always seen wearing an Eskimo suit, and he says everything very simply. Jefferson enjoys playing the xylophone and snowboarding when there is actually snow on the ground. Most of the time, though, he has to travel to Alaska with his comrades to snowboard.
Next week, I will talk about the enemies and other characters from The Magic Video Game series. Also, The Jazzy Island of Dinosaurs and its sequel, The Sound of a B Flat, will be on Amazon TODAY and TOMORROW, so please check them out!
The Jazzy Island of Dinosaurs: "It is June 2006 in St. John, a town in Northwest Indiana, and five siblings find out about the existence of dinosaurs through their neighbors who actually visited them. At a swimming party, the neighbors give the three younger siblings a book with a T-Rex's number on it. When all five kids visit Galavanti Island, they help Dacston, a T-Rex, Valpatic, a velociraptor, Jokie, a brachiosaurus, and Sammy, a stegosaurus, locate a case of saxophones that Selfish Arnie, Dacston's cousin, has taken from all of the citizens of Galavanti Island."
The Sound of a B Flat: "Summer of 2006 commences in St. John, a town in Northwest Indiana, and Caleb Grzedek's band is starting to get known. Andrew, his older brother, starts his first tennis season in high school. He also spends time with his girlfriend and best friends, and Caleb finally comes up with the band's name with his best friends. And, coming from a big family, the Grzedek's are often visiting their relatives, and the five kids are always learning new things. Therefore, summer is off to a good start."
Have a great weekend!
