And The Winners of the Acrostic Contest Are…

Augusta Jane for her wonderful entry:

The way I see things, well is a little differant.
Heroic! Oh yes, fighting off Germans is very heroic!
Extrordianarily gifted, with the sixth since I mean
Obviously prepared to decurse
Don’t be a bother and be thankful for the jam sandwiches father!
Oh my goodness, Bollingsworth is evil!
Shhhh Henry! Your feet sound like a dozen hipopotimi!
I never want to sleep in a small boat again!
American mothers are to keep an eye on when it comes to bringing home arftifacts.

And we also have a runner-up! Miss Kiki Kyra Kiyura! for her rhyming entry…

The little well-known saviour of London, who could it be?
Have you heard of this hero? I’ll give clues and we’ll see!
Everything counts on their cleverness and skill
Or else the whole operation would have gone downhill.
(Do you have the gist? If not, another rhyming hint comes.)
Or you’ve seen how bravely SHE faced all that came, and how
She knew that it wasn’t even close to a simple game.
If you’ve guessed the identity of this young, smart girl….
Absolutely correct is THEODOSIA. Give that name a whirl!

Well done, girls! All the entries were fabulous! So hard to choose!

Augusta and Kyra, after getting your parents permission, email your address to robin (at) theodosiathrockmorton.com so she can send you your prizes!

  3. Paige (Eemie) (Gabelle) (P4!g3) Says:

    Yo, Theo fans! I have a riddle for you!

    What word begins The Beginning?
    What if you replaced the end of life
    with the center of joy?
    now end as you began.
    for your name is a mirror,
    and you are the reflection of us all.

    hint: it’s an Egyptian god!

    the answer will be told in a week.

  7. Kaitlyn Says:

    Yes, Lucia.

    Can someone tell me if there is going to be a contest in a week?

    I have riddles, too:

    1.

    I was born above a star
    Though never been in space
    My intials go from p to s
    When looking in my face.

    Hint: Mom and Dad, and sometimes you, use it almost everyday.

    2.

    Put a coin inside a bottle
    Then take it out
    Without taking out the cork
    Or breaking the bottle itself.
    How is this possible?

    Hint: I said cork out.

    And Paige: I guess Isis or Thoth.

    And paige i think that the answer is Thoth or Theo (as in god not the book character)

  14. Paige (Eemie) (Gabelle) (P4!g3) Says:

    to kaitlyn and augusta: of your three answers, one is right. use logic to find out which answer it is! AND DON’T TELL ANYONE WHAT IT IS!!!!!!!

  15. Augusta :) Says:

    sorry kiki the answer is not you die. Who ever gets the answer first- well you just get it. Sorry guys its the best i can do. :)

  16. Augusta :) Says:

    This is kind of random but a small (about a week old) bird fell down my chimeny and it was the only one in its family who wasn’t killed by my sisters cat and i am taking care of it until it— well we are almost definate that it isnlt going to survive. But we keep it nice and warm. It has been SCREAMING for food but we are afraid to feed it. Does anyone know what to give him?

  17. (Kiki) (Kyra) (Kiyura) Says:

    Take him to a vet, or nature center, or something! Like the ASPCA!

  18. Augusta :) Says:

    well my cat go into the fire place and took a nip at him. He is looking better but I found out that soggy apple jacks are a really good food for him. And we can;t really take him to a vet because he is to young for them to do anything. :( but atleast his belly is full and he is in a very comfortable place to sleep.

  19. Augusta :) Says:

    Oh Paige i know which one it is, but can you answer my riddle that I posted earlier? It may trick you at first but then–

  20. Lucia Says:

    and now as promised i will reveal the answer and it is: Teeth! the red moutans are your gums! I actually got it from a book. and speaking of books kaitlyn you know thoose two rules you wrote in my trip to stew lenards about the custamer being right I found it in a book and i showed my mom and she said she had found it in a book to weird!

  21. Lucia Says:

  23. Lucia Says:

  28. Paige (Eemie) (Gabelle) (P4!g3) Says:

    oh, now i know the answer to the riddle! augusta’s riddle, i mean!

  29. Augusta :) Says:

    yeah lucia answered correctly: stop imagining! Yay lucia, and i cant wait to see your riddle revealed

  30. Paige (Eemie) (Gabelle) (P4!g3) Says:

    the answer to my riddle is Thoth. here’s why:
    “what word begins ‘the beginning’”
    well, ‘the’, of course!
    “what if you replaced the end of life with the center of joy?”
    the end of life is ‘e’. replace the ‘e’ in ‘the’ with ‘o’, the center of ‘joy’.
    “then end as you began”
    with ‘the’, so you have thothe
    “for your name is a mirror”
    ‘Thoht’ is close to Thoth, which is the answer
    “and you are the reflection of us all.”
    a last hint. Thoth was the father of alchemy.

    cool, huh?

  31. Kaitlyn Says:

    Yep!! :)

    That’s what I hate about movies made about books…..they get it allllll wrong.

  40. Kiki, Kyra, Kiyura Says:

  44. :) = happy hannah! Says:

    As the Night that buries all before it in Darkness, your Dragon color is…

    black

    If there ever was an apparition of Evil to strike terror into the hearts of man and beast, your Inner Dragon is it. Blackies are a fairly common dragon and are considered one of two harmonious dragons. Your antithesis is the White Dragon. Together, you two embody the Yin and Yang concept of eastern religions (especially Taoism).

    But of course, being a Blackie on the inside you couldn’t care less about that religion garbage. You like to chomp things, cause trouble, make off with people’s significant others, and so on and so forth. Your favorable attributes are night, the Moon, the stars, dreams, psychic guidance, balancing Karma, seeking truth, and helpful dark magic. Everybody’s still got to watch out for you though, because deep down you like to smite at random and have a nasty breath weapon combination of Fire and Acid. *evil grin* Fun, no?
    click on this link http://www.geocities.com/teo592/quiz/dragon.html it is really cool

  45. Kaitlyn Says:

    Mine is green.

    :P

  46. Lucia Says:

    pant pant I fianally got the duct tape off and my color is silver i wonder what that means?

  47. Luna Says:

    Your Inner Dragon is the most interesting of all. Yellows are the fourth rarest dragon of all (after Gold, Platinum and Chromatic dragons). They spend the vast majority of their time soaring high above the ground, often for no particular reason. They love to be in the air, and are thus typified as the Air Elemental dragon. Your Inner Dragon spends most of his/her time on the Plains or steppe highlands when not mingled with the air currents. All of the Elemental dragons are technically aligned “Chaotic Evil” but a Yellow is about as close as they come to being either Neutral or “Lawful Evil.” So if you feel like a bit of a do-gooder sometimes, it’s perfectly normal.

    You like to spend time in silent, aerial meditation and would only really attack someone if provoked. Your favorable attributes are the sunrise, Spring, incense, clouds, and any kind of helpful air mass or current. When it’s needed, your breath weapon is pure bolts of Lightning. How’s that for a neat piece of carry-on luggage? See you amongst the clouds!

    :K :O :P :D :R :S :Z

  48. Lucia Says:

    i have a mini contest this is for everbody who did that dragon quiz hannah showed us (but u can still enter if u didnt take the quiz) what color dragon do you think i am and theo youv’e been quiet is anything wrong?

  49. (Kiki) (Kyra) (Kiyura) Says:

    As the Oceans that give birth to the Land, your Dragon color is…

    BLUE!

    If there ever was a draconic example of a supple attitude, your Inner Dragon is it. Blues are the Water Elemental dragon – typified by their Steam breath weapon. Pretty creative, huh? It goes right along with your Inner Dragon’s tendency to maim, but not destroy. Much like your native oceans and rivers will deform the rock over time, eventually wearing it away to nothing.

    Humans shouldn’t make the idiot mistake of thinking you’re weak, however. After all you’re a good 30 feet in length and you have a penchant for materializing out of any body of water, no matter how small. The element of surprise and limited magic capabilities are definitely yours. You also enjoy communicating with aquatic life-forms, hunting in totally inhospitable terrain (i.e. 3000 feet below the waves), and using your fluid nature to your advantage. Your enemies probably won’t even see you approach in the first place. Your favorable attributes are the sunset, Autumn, water, compassion, peace, forgiveness, love, intuition, and calmness. Naturally, you pity the fool who’d try and prove that calmness part, he’d probably wind up being scalded. *small grin*
