Experiment

Macaroni and Cheese!

(January 8th, 2010)

Dear Planet Earth,

I was so delighted to finally come home from this long, dreadful week at school. I have been anticipating it all day and I’d worked up a massive headache from schoolwork by the last period. The walk home wasn’t so smooth, since I had to tread through deep snow on the sidewalks, unable to pass on the busy streets, but I was glad that I even made it to my doorstep. I’m glad to finally get a nice relaxing break from all the stress. It seemed as though as each day went by, the load of work increased. I was pleading for a snow day to come on Thursday, but the weather never responded back. Luckily I had a little break on Wednesday, which was the day of cooking club!  I had been called out of class the day before to answer a couple of questions for the yearbook, since I am one of the people in charge. I was so proud to be recognized; I deeply answered each question they threw at me in order to give them enough to write about.  By the time Wednesday came around I felt like I was in the groove of things, ready to cook up a new dish with some of my friends/ table mates. To my surprise we were cooking an all-time favorite: Macaroni and Cheese!

Yes, Mac & Cheese, an all-time favorite. How rather intriguing that my website and this delicious meal correspond. It sparked an idea inside me: how about including a delicious recipe of my own? No no no… I’m not talking about the cheap, microwaveable macaroni dinners that have a foul taste. I’m talking about a smooth, creamy, scrumptious meal that will cause a group of hungry barbarians to attack and devour it. Or, at least in my own case of trying this recipe. I was unable to grasp a photo of the bowl because people were already starting to take portions from it by the time I got my camera out. Anyway, here is what results when you cook this recipe:


Everyone starts to go after it!

Any delicious Macaroni and Cheese meal is based on how creamy the cheese sauce is. If it tastes bitter, dry, or chunky in the dish, it would be best find a better recipe, such as the one provided:

You will need just five ingredients to make the most gooey cheese sauce you’ve ever tasted in your life!
2 T. Butter
2 T. Flour
1/2 Tsp. Salt
1 cup cheese
1 cup milk

Instructions:
1. Melt butter in a medium sauce pan over low heat, continuously stirring. Once melted remove from heat. (It’s best to do this so that the mixture doesn’t get burnt on the bottom)

2. Stir in flour and salt to make a paste; add milk a little at a time

3. Return the pan to the stove-top and cook over medium heat, stirring until thickened. Once thickened, remove it from the heat again. (It is best to remove it from the heat because when working with dairy products, they tend to overcook very easily, which causes the cheese sauce to come out not as smooth).

4. Add the type of cheese preferred. It is better to add in a variety of different kinds in order to have an interesting, unique flavor. Stir it until it is completely melted

Follow the instructions on the back of a box of macaroni. Usually one cup of noodles is enough to feed one person, so multiply that by the total number of people intended to feed. Once the noodles are done, you can just pour it in a bowl, top it with the cheese sauce and mix.

You can also add some spice to it afterword to give your mac and cheese a kick. I recommend sprinkling some onion powder on top; I just love the flavor it adds to the dish. If you can take the heat, try hot sauce as well! Try experimenting with other toppings, you never know what you are going to find!

The cheese recipe could also be used for fondue, and it can also be used to top other foods such as different types of vegetables. Have fun working with the recipe.

Bon Appétit!

Voice Of Penguins III

Hello everyone! This is Clonez, admin of skydays147 .wordpress .com. If you have not noticed, this website just got a new theme. There have been many comments on it; good ones and bad, and so I would like to put up a survey on which theme you like better. This one might just be temporary, so I want to know who likes it and who does not. Every opinion counts, please vote once and once only.

I felt like this holiday season I should include everyone elses opinion on the holiday party and not just mine, so I decided to start the third VOP. The major question that I would like to ask is, “What is your opinion on the holiday party?” People included in this holidaymontage have added a tag to their post on the Christmas party so that I could find them. I try to post everyone’s opinion I can find, which is a very tricky thing to do because most club penguin websites (about 95%) are cheats. So if you are not included, please do not feel bad. Comments have been grammatically corrected for your liking.

These people enjoyed the party:

The party rocks. *laughs* With the holiday books in the Coffee Shop and Book Room, flashing shades of winter blues on the dance floor, a fellow snowman at the ice rink and the honorary red Christmas light at the beacon, it’s obviously great. ~frosty1297.wordpress.com

The Christmas party has arrived! Oh my word, there is so much to talk about! The Club Penguin Team did a stupendous job on the party! ~bubblegum423.wordpress.com

Yay!  The Christmas Party is finally here!  Woohoo!  It’s my favorite party ever!  Guess what goes perfectly with it?  A Snow Day!  Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!  Or a good morning!  Or a good evening!  Merry Christmas to all, and to all [insert here]! *laughs* ~cpcrewcp.com

‘Tis the season to be jolly, and around Christmas, man does Club Penguin know how to be jolly… Club Penguin has showed they know how to have a Christmas party, and for good reasons ~dart211.wordpress.com

I arrived at Club Penguin very early this A.M. First a nice snowman took off his hat and said, “howdy Mrs. cord (red) how are you this fine am?” “I’m fine Mr. Snowman,” I said, “How about yourself?” The snowman put on a happy face and told me he was a bit frozen, but other than that he was doing good. I told him that I would love to stand there and talk to him all day but I was rather busy checking out the Christmas Party so I should be on my way… and then the adventure began. ~cordiallyakacaroline.wordpress.com

The rooms are marvelous looking, like the Dojo with all of the lights. They brought back so many memories of the 06 Christmas party, I really hope you all enjoy it! ~ghostdays.wordpress.com

The party looks amazing. The Club Penguin art department really out did themselves yet again. There are plenty of fun things and interactive decorations. […] There are many more beautiful decorations that you guys should check out for yourselves! Merry Christmas! ~insanepenguins.wordpress.com

Okay, […] I think you are overreacting. I do not really care much about items anymore. Even though I had the Santa Hat/Beard from 2006, how in the world can you have Christmas without the Santa Hats and Beards? Come on, where is your Christmas spirit? ~cyclone999.wordpress.com

And these people did not:

This year, the Christmas Party is not that merry. First of all, they brought back the 2-year-old Santa Beard and again brought back the Santa Hat. I am surprised they did not bring back the Antlers, but they did bring back the photos with Santa, of course. The party is not that good. The music is bad, it’s just some weird “Deck the Halls”. The ninja hideout (only accessible to ninjas) has a giant octopus with a Santa hat and a candy cane!! Plus, like the one back in 2006, it’s all snow covered. ~cprsp.wordpress.com

The Christmas Party came out! It’s the same thing as 2006’s though so it’s pretty boring if you’re rare like me. ~wexfief.wordpress.com

The Christmas party is up and running and I’m kind of disappointed . The town and plaza are pretty bad. It looked like a blizzard came through but, I must admit that a lot of the buildings look great. ~napoleon21blog.wordpress.com

They gave away another free item ! (Santa Beard). And the stupid… Santa Hat. Okay… Club Penguin has really started to p*ss me off. I’m not going to go anymore on Club Penguin. ~cyclone999.wordpress.com

Holiday Party

holiday_party_1Hello everyone! This is Clonez, admin of skydays147 .wordpress .com. This morning I got my first snow day of winter: in real life and in Club Penguin. The Christmas Holiday Party started today. This was actually the first party that I have ever waited up for. In my opinion, it is a very nice one. Whatever holiday you are celebrating, I wish you a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah, and a Joyous Kwanzaa. There is something about this party that gives it such a zing, I am just not sure exactly what it was. I think it might be that warming feeling you get inside when you sit with friends around that fireplace in the coffee shop. It is set up so nicely; grab a bunch of friends and roast marshmallows over that fire because the cold build-up of snow is just a few feet away. I feel more invited at this party than I did at last years. In the 2007 party, I felt like I was some outcast because the decorations were made strictly for Christmas. I didn’t log on as much during the party because it made me upset. The week before I had sent holiday_party_2an email to Club Penguin asking for a menorah at the party and they had given me a very rude answer that it would cause a “conflict” if they had added one. It was like I could not follow anything what was going on; in a way, powerless. I feel at this one it is a lot more tolerant of other religions, and that is a really sweet thing for Club Penguin to do. It is just so friendly, and the large mounds of snow are something that everyone can enjoy, not just a select number of people. Although the free items at this party were ones that were brought back, it doesn’t totally ruin the party. You just have to appreciate the setting around you. I know I felt a little upset when only the Santa hat and beard came. But then again, it is a holiday party, and Club Penguin is letting everyone celebrate the tradition of Christmas by bringing them back. You never know, they may add another free item to the party like they did last year with the Christmas Scarf.  One of the rooms I love is the outside of the Dojo. Did you see the number of lights that were added on to it? It is suchholiday_party_3 extreme festivity that I had to comment on it. They all sparkle and shine when you enter the room. There is something about lights that really “lights up” the holiday season. I remember last year during the holiday time, my family would drive around the neighborhood and look at all of the different color lights that the houses put on. Some of them could be seen from a mile away; it was so bright. Okay, there is one other room that has to be mentioned: the cove. It is set up to be a paradise scene with palm trees and a sunset. Lets face it: the media describes the holidays as being “snowy,” which is not necessarily true. The point that this room is trying to make is that Christmas (or other winter holidays) can be celebrated anywhere around the globe and they are just as important as the ones in cold temperatures. The second reason they chose this was because of the southern hemisphere: it is summer there while it is winter here. So people who log on to Club Penguin in holiday_party_41Australia or possibly South Africa can have part of their warm weather during the party. I have to say, it is one of the most festive rooms at the party; it is very nice. I think they added the stage from the Music Party. I’m not too sure because it is a little different. The last room I would like to mention is the dance lounge, which has been transformed into a “Santas Factory” with a large conveyor belt in which toys are made. This is totally new for this party, and it is a pretty good idea that Club Penguin has come up with. The toy parts come down the chute and travel to a machine where they are made and boxed into nicely wrapped presents.  On the wall there is a picture of “Elf of the Month.” I laughed at that when I first saw it. How can you tell who that is? All of them look the same. I like how Club Penguin came up with the idea for the two arcade games in the room. They turned it into a video game system: very clever. I have to admit that I would have never thought of  them doing that. coins-for-changeCoins For Change is a huge part of what makes this Holiday Party so great. Not only during Christmas, but for other winter holidays too, donations are a huge part of the celebration. It is nice to see that Club Penguin is showing kids how important it is to donate. Instead of money, they donate coins of course. Not to ruin the parade, it isn’t really you who is donating money. It is the Club Penguin staff who is donating, and they are giving it to the different causes that you choose. I’m guessing when you donate 50, it is one vote; 250 is two votes; 500 is three votes. I have to say it is a pretty confusing method that they have set up. I’ve only donated a couple of times and I don’t even know if that influences the decision or not. Coins for Change is located is so many more rooms than last year, possibly because they want more people to give coins.

treasure-hunt

I felt like I needed to give some advice on the Treasure hunt game, because I haven’t done that in such a long time. The number one rule that I have that will help you earn more coins is to never dig in the far top/ bottom rows (or left/ right columns if you are second player). The reason is because it is harder to find the candy canes which are more points than the peppermints. When you go in the spot next to it, you can cover more ground and find the candy cane easier. Only go on the edges when you find that part of the candy cane is in that area. My second advice is to control the spaces in between your diggings. Do not leave a gap of two spots, because a candy cane could be in that area and you could miss it easily.  Finally, there is a rare in the game, and it is 2 by 2; it is a green ornament which is worth 100 points/coins. Make sure you don’t miss it. You can find it in about 1 in 10 games.

Overall Party Rating: ***

To finish up, I would like to wish everyone a great time during this two week winter break. Make it last, make it safe, and most importantly,  make it fun!

Hello everyone! This is Clonez, administrator of skydays147 .wordpress .com. I was previously looking on Google Earth to find the Club Penguin phone number when I noticed something rather shocking. If you have not noticed already, the website for Club Penguin is off– alot. Instead, the link is to clubpenguincp.com: a fan site for Club Penguin. This is probably the most ridiculous, disturbing advertising scheme for a Club Penguin fan site I have ever seen. The big question I want to ask, obviously, is “Are Club Penguin Fan Sites Going too far?” Google Earth is visible to millions of people, and it is a really easy place to find the phone number for Club Penguin and the address on it, just by searching in the search box the term “Club Penguin”. Something I really do not want to see is a link to some other website. How did they get their blog on Google Earth? It probably cost the owner of the website a ton of money to give “false information” about the Club Penguin Home Page. If you agree that this is pretty disturbing, please comment below. I really wanted to make people aware about this major topic.

Club Penguin 2008

fireworks_21Hi everyone! This is Clonez, administrator of skydays147 .wordpress . com. The year 2008 is coming to a close very soon. There has been so many great memories over this long year that might be forgotten: parties, clothing items, favorite hangouts, servers, furniture items, and many more. If you were not here last year, there was a vote put up for those categories and more, and people voted on what they thought best represented the year of 2007 from four nominees. Well, that will still be happening this year – and it will be more accurate than ever because of the poll that wordpress added this past month. Last year, the results were taken by commenting and was not open to everyone. But now, anyone can just drop in to vote. The poll will be up this following week at the top of the 2008 Page, so feel free to vote. The winners of each category will be put up permanently on the top of the page on December 31st, 2008. Once again, I would like to thank everyone for the excellent memories this year; I had a great time getting to know you all a little more.
