HEDGEHOG HOLLOW, EAST DOLLWOOD- Breaking news this week: Victoria is still attempting to do a backflip. This is something she has been attempting for, let's see - two weeks now, and she is no closer to a passable backflip. Victoria has realized that you shouldn't try on top of the bed though and so she's moved the bedding onto the floor. Is that any smarter? We'll just have to see! Victoria was available for comment, so I asked her why she is trying to do a backflip, but all she said was "Because," and that was her only answer to any of my questions. "Is a backflip hard?" "Because."
So I moved to her other side. "Are you ever going to get it?" "Because."
And then she actually attempted another backflip, and let's just say it did not go well. . . I might have better luck asking Sophie next time. It looks like Victoria does not like to be interviewed. No new dolls or outfits have been released lately, except for Maplelea's fall release, which was very interesting and your author would like a few of the outfits, and American Girl's maybe-spring release, which is cute but very pink. Actually, wait! I forgot about Corinne! Okay, so we have a new doll from American Girl, Corinne Tan and she's this year's - what's it called? Girl Of Any Time This Year? Is that it? Oh, Saila tells me it's a GOTY, but I'm not sure what that stands for. Anyway, Corinne is very nice! And, this is the most important - Charlotte (of Peace in the Pines)'s favourite animal is currently an elephant! Better write that down before it changes! I did manage to get an interview with Charlotte, and it went a lot better than with Victoria.
Nicole: "So, Charlotte, why an elephant?" Charlotte: "Look at them! Look at their big grey ears and their tusks and their trunks and how big they are! That's why I'm wearing elephant colours today!" N: "What's so great about elephant colours?" C: "No, no, no, the question is 'what's so great about elephants?' That's why I wore elephant colours - because elephants are so great!" N: "Okay, but what's so great about elephants? Besides their size." C: "And how they look."
N: "Yeah, besides all that." C: "They're fun to watch at the zoo, and they keep the savannah from getting all forest-y, because they eat the trees." N: "I like forests!" C: "I like forests too, but there's not supposed to be forests in the savannah. There's forests where the forests are. Yeah, and Nicole, have you ever seen an elephant take a bath? Or eat?" N: "Well, nooo . . . I haven't exactly." C: "You should. Their trunks are very cool, Nicole." N: "Okay, I willll -" C: "Go to the zoo! That's where I saw the elephants." N: "Thank you for allowing me to interview you, Charlotte." C: "You're welcome. I had fun. But you really should go see the elephants, Nicole." Looks like I'm off to go see the elephants! I'll catch you next time on News With Nicole!
