The Literary Dinner Party Tag

Hey guys!!!

So I didn't get tagged for this. That's right, I stole it!!!! *cue gasp of horror*
For this tag, I get to invite 11 character to dinner with me!! (and maybe a few party crashers, if you guys are interested)

I stole this from Lila over at The Cheapskate Bibliomaniac. We all had a fun time in the comments section XD Go check her out!!!

Without further ado :D

(Actually before we begin, I changed my blog look!! How do you guys like it? Tell me in the comments :))

One Character Who Can/Likes To Cook

Sally Jackson/Blofis from the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. GASP We could have blue food!!!!! 

One Character Who Has Money To Fund The Party

Maxon Schreave from the Selection series. He's a prince! He can give us all the strawberry tarts we want :) 

One Character Who Might Cause A Scene

Kaz Brekker from the Six of Crows duology will definitely cause a scene. But it will be very subtle and he will be sitting very calmly amid the chaos. 

One Character Who is Funny/Amusing

Alex Fierro from Magnus Chase always makes me laugh. He would bring a layer of hilarity to the party 

One Character Who Is Super Social/Popular

Noah Estaban from Embassy Row is very social. He would talk to everybody! 

One Villain 

Jim Moriarty would be very interesting at this party, just saying :D

One Couple-Doesn't Have To Be Romantic


One Hero/Heroine

Cammie Morgan!! She could teach us some cool defense moves :)

One Under-Appreciated Character

Gilan from Ranger's Apprentice is a very under-appreciated character. I loved him right from the start. #TeamGilan

One Character Of Your Own Choosing

Carswell Thorne from the Lunar Chronicles. I think he and Gilan would be fast friends :)

And that is the end of the tag! I'm not going to tag anyone but if you want to do it, feel free to steal do it :D

Happy Thanksgiving!

When You Are Eighteen

When you are eighteen
You're a man who is ready
Who is strong and is steady
You know what I mean?
When you are eighteen
Then you should be respected
And you don't need protected
When you are eighteen

When you are eighteen
You are braver and bolder
Than that crowd who are older
You know what I mean?
'Cos when you are eightenn
With all those years to prepare you
There's nothing can scare you
When you are eighteen

I'm ready to travel 
To follow my star
To the places I've been dreaming of
I'm ready for living;
I'm ready for life
And I know that I'm ready for love...

When you are eightenn 
With the world all around you
It can sometimes astound you
You know what I mean?
Just how little they know, ha!
All those cowboys and chancers
I've got more of the answers...

And I'm only eighteen 

Edit:  I have made a mistake (why do most of my conversations start with this???) I wrote this at like 11:30 at night so I forgot to add that this is NOT my song. I was tired, in my defense. This song actually is my favorite group Celtic Thunder, so please go check them out!!! Sorry for the confusion.

Open Road Summer

Hi guys!!!!

So this is sort of a NaNo update and you get a song I wrote!! Yay!!! I've gotten one song completely finished and am working through snippets on others.

So without further ado!

Open Road Summer

Verse 1

We met when we were both 16
You told me my dress was pretty
And we talked all night
Soon enough we were acting like
we had know each other our whole lives


I remember the wind in my hair
The radio playing, our favorite country songs
Sittin' in the shotgun seat next to you
In that open road summer

Verse 2

I can still see my daddy on the porch
Waiting for us to get home from our date
As we pulled into the driveway, you smiled so wide
We didn't want the night to end
But that was just the first of many

Repeat Chorus


Driving through this old town now
I can still see us in your car
Me next to you in that shotgun seat

Repeat Chorus 

How's NaNo going for you guys?
Let me know in the comments, I love to talk!!

My Crazy Weekend///Featuring Sporks, Golf Carts, and Medival Costumes.

Hi guys!

(I am so proud of that title, you guys have no idea :D)

So this weekend was really really crazy. That's pretty much why I wasn't posting this week, but I am here now!

So here's what was happening


We had a Confirmation at our church on Saturday and my mom volunteered to make the cakes for the luncheon that was to follow. So we were delivering the cakes on Friday. My mom had to air conditioner on full speed on the way there, our car was like a freezer, I am so glad I brought a jacket :). We get the cakes in, and go up to the church to sit and pray. We got there an hour before Mass started. And I learned this lesson, never sit on a wooden pew for an hour, your body will hate you. Then after Mass, my mom signed me up to iron the communion rail cloths. That was not fun. Because I was feeling the affects of sitting on that pew. My lower back started spasming. I could barely walk. I was limping around on the altar, trying to iron. (also I really hate ironing)  So yeah, that was Friday)


This day was a doozie. We got up super early (#sootired) to get to church to help prepare food for the luncheon. Food got prepared, we went upstairs to attend the Confirmation and Mass. It went really well! Then the luncheon. The ladies in charge of it had me and another girl carry around trays of drinks to people sitting down and that was not fun! We had to go give the bishop and the priests drinks at their table. Me and the girl I was with are super awkward so that was interesting. We stood a couple feet away from their table for five minutes, working up the courage to go over there. The rest of the luncheon passed without a hitch and soon it was over.

Before this next part, I need to give you guys a little backstory.

Do you guys remember that song I wrote about the guy I was trying to get over? The post is here, if you don't. When I wrote that, I hadn't seen him for two months so I was fine. We go to another church in the summer, because that church is close to my aunt's, who has the pool. In September, when we came back to our "rest of the year" church, I saw him again. My stupid heart probably did a cartwheel in my chest. And basically this weekend taught me that I am still head over heels for him. This boy makes me laugh like a little kid. His smile is so cute and he loves God so much. ......and I'm going to stop now :) (I'm going to stop typing this boy, Catherine and I came up with a nickname for him and from now on, I'm going to refer to him as Spork)

Backstory over.  hehe

Anyway, Spork's little brother was confirmed. So after the luncheon, they had a party at their house. We were invited, so we went. We pull in the driveway and the first thing that comes out of my brothers mouths was, "OOH LOOK SPORK'S SHIRTLESS!!!" What his family forgot to inform us was we were supposed to bring our swimsuits. (yes, the weather is still warm enough to swim) So yeah....I basically just slammed my head into the seat in front of me and groaned. It was a lot of fun!!
Later, they got out the golf carts. A group of my friends took one and the other one Spork was driving and another friend and me got in and rode with him. It was so much fun!!! We were avoiding a group of the other boys who kept jumping on and riding on the sides of the cart. Spork drove us in donuts, down hills and through a field. Eventually they cornered us and jumped on. Soon after that we were leaving and as my family was walking to the car, I went back to use the restroom. I started back towards the car and as I was nearing it SLAM! I hit something......or rather someone. Yep, Spork had walked with my dad to the car and I ran right into him. (it was dark, I couldn't see) Got home and fell into my bed.


And today. 
We went to a Renaissance festival near our church. We had a lot of fun. We watched a joust, that was sooo cool!! My little brother tried throwing a spear at a target. He missed #youtried Then all three of my brother threw tomatoes at this guy is stocks but it was a fun game because as you were throwing, he insulted you. They ended up laughing so hard, they couldn't hit him. We were all in tears XD
We got halfway through the festival when it started to rain. So I was walking through the festival looking like a drenched cat, with a tiara!

We've been relaxing with pizza ever since we got home. 

Hope you like this post! I had a lot of fun this weekend. Enjoy!

Come on in...see the new header!!

*blog readers enter in to see a strange girl with their back to them working on putting up something* 

It needs to go a little wider....


Too wide....There! Now it all fits! It's perfect....Lilah, it's re-

*she turns and sees her growing audience gaping at her* 

*hammer bangs onto the ground* 


*hastily hides the guilty hammer* 

You're probably wondering who in the world I am. 
Please, take a seat and allow me to introduce myself. 

My name is Catherine Hawthorn, a.k.a Farm Lassie. I blog over at The Rebelling Muse. I know Lilah very well (we call each other sister). 

Several days ago, Lilah and I were talking about our respective blogs and she mentioned her desire to figure out how to make a header. She had been frustrated in trying to make one, so I offered to make her one. 

And tonight, I'm revealing it to her and you faithful readers! 

As with all of my headers, I try to use uncopyrighted images that convey some kind of significance or something that reveals something about the blog author. So, are you ready to learn about Lilah? Here we go! 

Parchment/Chant Music - As you all probably know, Lilah loves music. But did you know that she sang in our church choir for a few years? She loves polyphony, so I thought it apt to include an image of chant music. 

Book - Lilah is a bibilophile, through and through. She loves aesthetics too, which is why I chose this book. 

Night Sky - Lilah is a night owl. She's often up until 1 or 2 in the morning. This night sky was so pretty...

Theater - Lilah isn't involved with theater, but she loves it very much. Once she graduates from high school, I would not be surprised if she tried out for the stage! 

Chandelier - She hasn't had a chance to fangirl about this on the blogs (to which I'm actually surprised at), but Lilah is a HUGE Phantom of the Opera Phanatic. This picturesque chandelier is the perfect symbol! 

Broadway - Lilah loves Broadway!!! She's a big musical fan (as you probably have figured out by now..). It was SUPER difficult to find an uncopyrighted picture of Broadway movie posters (I had to crop this one from a big photo of Times Square, so please forgive the horrible quality, Lilah). 

 Beach - Lilah is a water girl, and the beach is one of her favorite places to be! 

White Cherry Blossom - Lilah (and I) are kindred spirits to Anne Shirley. After searching around aimlessly for something Anneish, I remembered that Anne loved the Snow Queen, which was a white cherry tree. She also mentions that she would "climb up in that white cherry tree to sleep" if Matthew never picked her up from Bright River. Hence, this little cluster of white cherry blossom was a perfect cap for this header.

Sea Green Background - Lilah told me that her favorite color was sea green. I managed to find this sea green wall that was just distressed enough that I thought she would like. 

New Favicon - For those that have Lilah on a blog list, I have changed her favicon to a red rose. Another tribute to the POTO fanfic, as well as Lilah's very romantic nature. 

*looks at clock*

Well, enough of my chatting! I need to go get Lilah...y'all enjoy the header! 

Scribblingly yours,
