Hey Guys!

Again this is Madison.

As you probably noticed, we have done a lot of re-aragning here at Odd Topics. I thought that since we have had so many posts, it would be fair to have a table of contents for them all. Coming soon there will be a new page with all our posts on it and new posts to come. Come back soon to see it!

 
 

Hey Guys! This is Madison.

I was thinking the other day about telling all of our 465 main readers more about who we are in real life. Well, Ashley thought that it would be ok, as long as it wasn't too much. So i decided to first tell you about our sponser.

The foundation that pays for our site is called the Wyatt Cantain Foundation. If you ever have gotten an email from us, you probably know that sometimes we dont write all the emails. If you gotten one that we have chosen to read, it probably took a while to get to you, and its pretty rare. Most of our emails are written by the people that work at the foundation. We thank the Wyatt Cantain Foundation for their support.

Tomorrow, April 2nd, is Wyatt's Birthday. Wyatt was 89 when he died in 1999. He was a man who dedicated his life to working to help kids learn to read and write, and since he was a wealthy man, he sponsored many libraries, schools, and websites like Odd Topics that encourage children to learn and try their best.

The Wyatt Cantain Foundation also asked Ashley and I, two high-schoolers, if we would help create a website in our spare time. That is why this website is part of the Wyatt Cantain Foundation.

If Wyatt was alive today, I'm sure he'd be very proud of the work that Ashley, I, and many other volunteers have done through his foundation, started 2000. Happy Birthday, Wyatt!

WHAT? 02/21/2009
 

Today Ashley came over to Madison's house. Isn't that interesting???

 
 

Hey Guys!

This is your favorite blogger- Madison.

But i have to say, Ashley is right about one thing. If you read our last blog, Ashley mentioned that we don't really keep "Odd" in our blog. So i wanted to do something about it. I have a request for you- our Odd Topics readers. Here it is:

Tell us the most stupid way you have injured yourself on accident.

I cant wait to read some of these stories! They're gonna be hilarious!

And do you know what happens if we think your story is incredibly stupid? You could win 10,000! Or not! Probably not! You won't! Nope!

But you could get your story featured here on our next blog or so.
 

 
 

You know, I may have to remind Madison WHY we have the word odd in our title.  :)

But, back to the topic.  By the way, what IS today's topic?  I can answer that!  Today, I just wanted to come out and wish everyone a happy birthday!  I also play the violin, and I can play Happy Birthday on my violin!  /\nd my birthday is in LESS than a MONTH!!!  I share a birthday with 2 people that I know, and I am going to SEE them on my birthday.  One of those people I saw on my birthday 2 years ago, and I said happy birthday to her then!  The other person is a boy.  

So, what do you like about BIRTHDAYS?  The cake?  The presents?  The knowing you are another year older?  Uhh--maybe not the last one.  I personally do.  But what do you like the best? 

I think we're getting off the "odd" factor of our website.  We really have to think up more odd topics!  If you have any ideas, tell us!  Please comment on our blog, too!  (tell us by commenting)

Birthdays are the coolest.  Mostly because of the cake and presents, but there are other reasons, too!  Like...umm...okay.  I give up.  Wait, I've got one! 

I also like birthdays because I invite a lot of friends to my parties.  Sometimes.   Have you ever had a surprise party?  I have--once--when I was five!  I wanted to go to McDonald's for my birthday dinner, so we did.  Then we saw a bunch of balloons there, and my mom said it must be someone's birthday!  Little did I know it was mine!  We walked inside, and when we went to our table...SURPRISE!!  Happy birthday, Ashley!  I got a Ronald McDonald movie, and I still have it.  It was about treasure hunting, and it was A-W-E-S-O-M-E AWESOME!  (the party, not the movie.  Though the movie was pretty cool ;))

Anyway.  Did Madison really think I would get upset at her for leaving the G off of swimming???!   That is weird.  :)  Though sometimes I do get upset at her for spelling things wrong.................on PURPOSE! 

Well, I'd better go...TTYL!

Do you like music? I am a music ADICT! I cannot live without music. I play the violin, so that helps me out a lot.
