Jacquel Rassenworth on Ariel Sharon

Just so you know, I happen to have scores of relatives who live in Israel. Most of them live in Jerusalem. My dad was born in Israel, but I was born in San Francisco.

There you have it.

Anyway, my uncle Alexander Rassenworth sent out a huge post on Facebook announcing the death of Ariel Sharon, who was president of Israel. As we all know, he had had a stroke in 2006 and dropped off the face of the earth. I guess he felt that he had a good life.

And he was known as a tough guy who didn’t stand for any nonsense and tried to build up his country in the face of adversity.

So, fellow readers, please join the millions of people living in Israel who are mourning the death of a great leader. We’ll never see the likes of him again.

Jacquel Rassenworth on Friday the 13th…again!

Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter

Once again, Friday the 13th is here, and I’m not too happy about that. I now have to spend another three days in bed thanks to an unexpected relapse, and now, I’m not giving Laurette ANYTHING for Christmas! She will learn to NEVER MESS WITH JACQUEL RASSENWORTH!!!

Anyway, now I have to deal with another round of bad luck…again!

Well, eight days of Hanukkah have come and passed and I’m amassing the eight days worth of gifts that I got but never asked for. (I have Christmas for that!)

Also, now that Hanukkah is over, I am now free to force myself to recover from this stomach flu long enough to go back to school. I need to be in class, not home sick. Surely Laurette Rassenworth will understand that, if nothing else.

Anyway, now that Hanukkah is finally over and done, I have one more video just to shake things up to the core: The Chanukah Song (Part 3)

See you all later with the next blog post!

Jacquel Rassenworth is Winding Down with Hanukkah

Day seven of Hanukkah, and I’m still sick! I’m very angry with cousin Laurette; she knew that she was sick and she should have known that I got sick just from being around her. I hope you’re happy, Laurette; you ruined three good weeks for me!

Anyway, I’m filling up my Tumblr blog with all kids of useless Internet memes and funny pictures, so now, I have to give you something having to do with memes! (don’t worry, she won’t bite…much!)

Here you go! Grumpy Cat Meows

Jacquel Rassenworth Celebrates Hanukkah

After a fun-filled Sunday (filled with five hours of dragging my dad through the mall), I’m now heading back to Forks, Washington. Hopefully, I can get back in time to wake up for Cyber Monday.

Anyway, I’m not looking forward to Christmas this year because I now need to deal with the Quintillia family and their (illegal) adoption of my late mother, Katelyn. I feel that her life and mine are filled with lies. What do you do if you found out that you’ve been lied to your whole life?

Well, I thank you all for putting up with me on the fourth day of Hanukkah, and now, we’re halfway through the holiday. Just four more crazy nights to go!

Here’s my gift to you all. Watch and enjoy: Lord of the Rings (Game of Thrones-inspired) title sequence

Well, here we are at the month of December, which is the most disagreeable month out of the year. (My real-life counterpart was born in December, and I can’t stand her at all!)

Why is it that I’m not fond of December? Sure, it’s Christmastime there, but is that all it’s cracked up to be? (Just wait until I start talking about Christmas in the coming weeks—you’ll love it!) I know that I’m Jewish, but should Jews celebrate Christmas?

I’ll get back to that later.

OK, so Matt begged me to watch Frozen with him, but we ended up watching Catching Fire instead. But I’m really looking forward to the new Hobbit movie, appropriately called The Desolation of Smaug. I already know that it’s going to be good, and even so with the voice of Benedict Cumberbatch as Smaug. His voice gives me chills!

Also, there is Vampire Academy, which Sasha has been reading and begged me to read for two years now. OK, Sasha, you win. I’ll start reading the books…as soon as I get done with Beautiful Creatures and Divergent.

OK, I’ve kept you all awake for far too long, so look for my next Hanukkah post in a few hours.

As you all know, I am Jewish. My family celebrates Hanukkah as well as Christmas.

But this year, just to shake things up, we’ve got 8 Crazy Nights, and it all starts tonight, right after Dad carves the Thanksgiving turkey.

That means my first Hanukkah gift is tonight.

As soon as I can get to my laptop, I’ll have it ready for you.

See you soon!

EDIT: as a reward for your patience while I deal with my family, here’s a YouTube video for you to enjoy: Space Oddity by David Bowie

Jacquel Rassenworth on The Book Thief

I will admit that I wasn’t going to see this movie, and for a good reason: my grandparents had barely survived World War II and because they were Jewish, everything bad that happened to them did happen. My grandmother lost five members of her family to the gas chambers. So she really doesn’t want to be reminded of the oppression that she suffered as a Jewish girl growing up in Berlin, Germany during the rise of Adolf Hitler. My grandfather hates hearing about this time period, as it too reminded him of what he had lost during his years of fighting in the war.

Other than that, I liked hearing the story about a girl who stands up for what she believes in and tries to save as many books as she could. Save for a few books that I want to see banished from the face of the earth, no book deserves to be burned.

Now you know.
