Kiki's Video Game Review: James Bond 007 Nightfire

Both of us have this game, me for my PS2 and Mimi for her Gamecube . We always play the Multiplayer option. It is really amazing and fun,except I'm not too good at it. Um.... not being a video game fanatic, especially not one who adores shooting games, I don't have much to say. Now a book review is another thing...
OK. Concentrate. Um... Well, I'm the best with Pistols weapon set but Explosives One and the one with the Golden Gun are cool too. Ah it's the MI6 Operative. See, I told you I suck at this...
But over-all the multiplayer is a great way to beat your brother's butt at shooting games(I wish...)

A review on a great game..........

hEY!!! ok so this post will be about a video game me and kiki both have. it started off when i got the game for christmas (i think). and then i told kiki all about it and she got the game and we played forever. i personally love the game. my version is for ps3 and kiki's is for ps2. i like them all! the game is about lara croft tomb raider underworld. lara croft goes on a quest to find out what happened to her dead father. she goes to places all over the world, mainly underworlds in mexico, arctic sea, south america, etc. she would go through underworlds which her father had been in and found different things that have deadly powers. But for those of you who are familiar with the lar croft series, what is an adventure without any villains. well......lara encounters villans such as undead creatures, vikings, all sorts of wild animals and even mercenaries.... (trust they are wilddddd). she does a lot of acrobatic things which i find impressive. and i highly dought this game if=s for for the faint-hearted because in a scene a ginormous (seriosluy) guant squid or octopus thingamajig and i literally was a itsy bt close to fallng off my bed when playing. i mean come on, how many times do you encounter a giant squid popping out in the middle of nowhere. lets just say that level (meditteranean sea) freaked me out.........a lot, but believe me i love a good fright...... continuing on...... Another part of the game i love is the fact that you can move freely and can go ANYWHERE unlike most other games where a invisble border blocks your way off into the jungle. there was a level where you battle these mercenaries on a ship, and it was awesome! i used to be terrified of gunshots in video games, and attacking overall, but now i love it! it is for me the best game ever! i cant wait until i see the next one.......

Funny Story from the point of Kiki...

A loud thud reaches our ears. Then another. And another. At first, we ignore it, but then we pick up a garbage can and whatever other “weapons” we can find. I carry a heavy trash can. Mimi grabs a butcher knife from the kitchen. Then, together, we check both doors and glance out the sliding window to the balcony. So far, so good. No one is there trying to break into her apartment. So we bring our weapons back to her room and pick up the game controllers again. Soon, the sound starts again. We check the windows. Glancing out the open window in her parents’ bedroom, we see a man with a mysterious plastic bag sitting next to him and a crow bar in his hands. All the grates along the back entryway to the apartments were open! Our immediate thought was a break-in, as these grates lead to the basements which had been ransacked before. I questioned Mimi if she knew of any repairs going on, but after racking her brains she got nada. So she grabbed her digital camera and started recording him. Sliding his crowbar under an un-opened grate directly across from Mimi’s apartment, the man looked ever so criminal as he glanced surreptitiously around him. Whispering between ourselves, Mimi noted that the grates had keys to open them, so a repair-man was out of the question. While I held her camera for her she phoned her parents, who were out shopping. Murmuring to me that her dad was on the way, we leaned back away from the window as the man looked all around him yet again. We decided, if the situation turned critical, we would go out there to confront him ourselves! Now, we noted that the man, and a number of other repairmen-looking people milling around were Mexican (no offense, anyone!). As Mimi left the room to check one thing, I saw an old gray-haired man walk by, and then tried to explain him to Mimi. We were beginning to doubt more and more that this was a real break-in, but our hearts still fluttered in fear. Soon we saw Mimi’s dad approaching and we ran back to the safety of her bedroom. When he came in, it turned out that they were repairmen after all! So Mimi decided to delete the video (unfortunately), and then we laughed. It was funny, and the next time we met we talked about what we would have done had this been a real robbery. A little adventure….

Funny little story to tell......the case of the fake burglar and crazy mind

Ok, day me and kiki, met up at my apartment. my parents went shopping for a while and my mom left me her cell phone. We were playing A James Bond game and we started to hear noises, obviosly sspicios. me and kiki went to my mom and dad's bedroom and saw a mexican (no offense to anyone) from he window on the sidewalk. he was by the little window or vent things that came from the basement. and belive it or not, it looked as if he was trying to rob the place. well i mean come on he was using his feet and kicking at it. so i call my dad and tell him. we videotaped the thing but it turned out to be a maintenance guy repairing stuff, well at least we were careful about it! lol! it was pretty funny though, we were like mini detectives. we sure had a great laugh about it. i hope that happens again, but i hope we wont be so positive that it really was a burglar. lol........

Me and kiki,

"My life"
My life is silent
dead as a tree
but then there are times
when I see
someone in my life
looking over me
knowing who i am
then i see
my life is a dream
growing deep inside of me
no matter what they say
i know
who i am
in my heart
i know
there will always be
a piece of my heart
reserved for you

BFF poem

Best Friends
As we sit together
On the steps
Fiddling with our fingers as we
She hugs me
And tells me
“we’re bff’s forever!”
I smile,
Knowing it’s the truth
And say
“yes… forever”

The Tale of Kiki...

My name is Kinga, or Kiki for short. Just a fun fact about my name: it is Hungarian from the Old German Kunegunda. I'm a 12 year old girl with dreams bigger than the sky and hopes as furry as the snout of a dog, for my future. I am a writer, and a poet. I was born and raised in Chicago, but both my parents emigrated from Poland. So it is safe to say I am Polish! I have visited Poland quite a few times. I live near my BFF, my other half, the cap to my bottle, the left eye when I am the right one! Mimi knows me, and all of the nooks and crannies in my heart, as she has spent nearly 8 years or so deep within it. Basically, we are BFF's!! That's all there is to it. I love to read. If you were to spy on me you would learn that 1) I spend most of my time with my nose in a book, 2) that is probably why I am so pale, and 3) I love dogs and wish for one from the bottom of my heart! The dog in the picture above is not mine(unfortunately), but he was for adoption a few months ago. That will also tell you I'm passionate about pet adoption. While I am a city slicker, I must warn you not to underestimate my green thumb. Yes, I like gardening and actually want a farm when I grow up! I also like photography... but unfortunately my range is limited with a Nikon CoolPix, when what I really need is a digital DSLR. With a telephoto lens. And, I occasionally listen to music. And, I knit. And I make cards. And... blah blah blah. I must be boring you. So, that's all there is to me, emitting a few things I would rather no one online knew. I hope you all enjoy the blog of us City Slickers!
