Apparently we are getting a lot of spam... I apologize for not catching it.

In the meantime, if you get any spam, please let the mods know instead of deleting so we can report it. You can actually report it to us in this thread for now.

EDIT 1: As a temporary measure (I hope), I have set a recaptcha requirement for all non-members who post comments. I hate to do this because I realize recaptcha can be problematic for some people (myself included, honestly), but hopefully it'll be very temporary I tested this one and it didn't work, so instead, all non-member comments will be screened for now, as a temporary measure. Please let me know if this causes anyone major problems.

BSC #10: LOGAN LIKES MARY ANNE! OR HOW MARY ANNE GOT HER GROOVE BACK! PART 1!

Hello my peeps, hope everyone’s enjoying the warm weather! Sorry it’s been awhile, but I think I burned out snarking those two BATSHIT INSANE BOOKS back to back and I needed a little rest. I swear, I spent most of last week wondering FOR THE MILLIONTH TIME… WHY ISN’T ANN MARKETING WHATEVER THE HELL SHE’S SMOKING TO THE MASS PUBLIC FOR CRAMPS? I SPENT LIKE TWO DAYS CRYING/SCREAMING IN PAIN! FREAKIN HELL!

The only good thing that happened…besides my awesome husband taking such good care of me… was this:

THAT’S RIGHT PEEPS! I SENT A TWEET TO SHEAMUS FROM WWE AND HE FAVORITED IT! I FINALLY GOT A WWE WRESTLER TO ACKNOWLEDGE ONE OF MY TWEETS! HAPPY DANCE!



Now without any further ado:

Baby-Sitters Little Sister #73
Karen’s Dinosaur, Chapters 11-20


It’s taken me a while to get this half done, because I’m basically doing this to try and get over my debilitating fear of being noticed. I had the shakes for an hour after I posted the first half . . . and then I kept rereading it and editing it. I had no idea snarking would be so stressful; you guys all make it look so fun and easy :p Anyway, I noticed that no one else had done this book, and since I had it I thought I might as well try . . .

Beware, there are a few minor swear words in this part; apparently I shouldn’t go near Karen books. It also might be a little more ragey and a little less snarky; I blame a Karen overload! (Ironic that she’s not actually being totally horrible in this book, but she’s still Karen so that’s all the reason I need . . . )

Chapter 11 – Nancy's Haircut

Interrupting the story, Nancy reveals that she is getting a haircut for realzies! Hurray! And of course since Gloriana's House of Hair is apparently the only hair cut place in all of Stoneybrook, Karen freaks out once again. We get it already, that place sucks!

But again Nancy states that she is not going to that place but instead going to Hair Fair. And she's doing it that afternoon.

Oh and Hannie gets mentioned again!

Spotted-3.5

Oh wait she can't go. Oh well let her keep the point. (Poor Hannie)

And then Nancy is a big girl going straight to the counter and telling the lady that she has an appointment and that she wants the haircut just like her crumpled up magazine page. (Actually that was really cute)

So Nancy gets her hair cut and Karen can't help getting PTSD flashbacks about Gloriana's House of Hair. But when she opens her eyes she is relieved that Nancy's hair is A-Ok. And Hannie gets another reference. But it's kind of a weird one.

"Her hair was getting shorter and shorter. Soon it was shorter than Hannie's. (But not as short as my squirrel haircut.)"



Yeah not that short. Really use Addie as a comparison. Oh well it's a spot.

Spotted-4.5

Nancy loves her haircut and Karen comments that Nancy looks 9 years old.

Silly Karen you both know she will never be nine.

Chapter 12- Caught

Going back to the story, (seriously it picks up right after chapter 10), Karen is scared of the thought of losing her badge. But she is convinced that the fifth graders are the culprits.

One day (they never specify) just as patrol is almost over Addie flies around the corner in her wheelchair. (Go turn yourself in). Anyway it appears that the two fifth graders Nicole Seegal and Kathy Crawford, just snuck into another room and that the two can catch them in the act.

And they both run down the hall and Karen even manages to crash into Addie's chair (man they suck at this job).

And they spot the two girls just steal a quarter from a desk. You know after a while one does have to question where the heck the teachers go.

Karen seeing this act of injustice goes in and tells the girls that they've been caught. But since it's only the 12th chapter they can't do anything.

Ok what really happens is that Nicole and Kathy threaten to beat them up if they tell and tell Mrs. Noonan that the two were spying instead of doing their jobs. And then Karen still suffering from PTSD from book 53 and Addie just give up.

361726.jpg

You know I wish you would stop disappointing the great detective like this.

Chapter 13- The 2AT


The next Wednesday, Karen wakes up not wanting to go to school. Not because of the whole Nicole incident but rather because of the 2AT. Sheesh there's a lot of PTSD in this book I'm noticing.

And guess what wonders Lisa tells her daughter about her PTSD from book 38 and her fears of the dreaded 2AT.

"Mommy was busy fixing coffee. She did not even turn around. 'I know about the 2AT Karen,' she replied.

'Oh.' I poked at my toast. 'So I guess I have to go to school.'

'Absolutely.'

'Boo and bullfrogs.'"


Geez Lisa would it kill you to even attempt to reassure your daughter that she'll do fine.

In school Ms. Coleman tells all the kid the instructions regarding the standardized test. And then this line happens.

"'Remember to keep your eyes on your own people.' (Ms. Coleman glanced at me just then).

Don't these people forget anything!

But luckily Karen is relieved of her PTSD and finds the test to be rather easy.

After recess, Tammy reveals that someone stole her troll doll from her desk. Seriously where are those teachers. And to make matters worse Ms. Coleman actually says "Not again." Oh like you helped. And then she just turns around.

You know I wouldn't be surprised if the teachers were the actual culprits.

Chapter 14-Watch out

The crooks have struck again. This time someone stole Pamela's dollar they very dollar she was going to buy a comic book with. (Wait what)

Regardless, this is the last straw for Karen and she decides to confront the thieves.

And while Addie is doing patrol. Karen tells Nicole and Kathy that despite not having proof Karen will turn them in. You'd think testimony would be enough.



But then Nicole and Kathy just threaten to beat her up and Karen gets PTSD again and backs out of the room. Again why 2nd graders should not patrol the halls.

Side note. I got to question the art work. You can clearly see Addie in the shot but she's not even the room.



Chapter 15 - Nancy's Mistake

It's Friday. Karen is excited. It's the last day of the 2ATs, Karen has completely recovered from the PTSD from book 38 (But sadly not book 53). And even greater news, Kristy is babysitting on Saturday. (Don't worry it never gets mentioned again).

Karen must be contagious because Nancy is even more excited about today. Why? Because she is wearing her dead grandma's ring. Obviously her parents went insane. Well at least we finally see her haircut.



I would kill to see how the school reacted to her haircut.



But like clockwork, of course the ring is stolen. Luckily Karen does not point out that she should have kept in her backpack to keep it safe rather than the desk. But her advise to tell Ms. Coleman is not much better. Seriously she barely even acknowledges it this time.

And now Karen is mad. It's the last, last straw now and Karen has a plan.

Chapter 16- The Sneaky Plan


So now Karen has had it. She finally decides that it's time to catch them and this time she doesn't care if she loses her badge as long as Justice is done.



Oh you make him so proud. And what's the plan. Get Ms. Coleman in the room!

But then comes the really stupid part of the plan. In order to keep their parents from worrying where they are. Karen will have Nancy tell her mom that she's at Addie's house, while Addie will say to her mother that she has an important Red Brigade meeting.

At least tell the same lie! Geez.

Chapter 17- Trouble And Chapter 18-More Trouble


Well right off the bat there is problems with the plan because Nancy does not want to lie as she wants to be more grownup. I know where she's coming from but seriously it just makes her look like a jerk the way the phrase it.

When Nicole and Kathy walk by Karen and Addie loudly proclaim that Bobby has left his Walkman in his desk. (I hope they actually let Bobby know this plan)



And then since Nicole and Kathy cannot tell bad acting when they hear it they fall for it and plan to steal the Walkman.

Karen and Addie than wait outside for Ms. Coleman, who is shocked to see them after school. Karen and Addie lead her back to the classroom just in time to catch Kathy and Nicole in action.

Ms. Coleman reveals herself and Kathy and Nicole are shocked to see a teacher still at school past 3:30. I guess they knew how bad the teachers are this book.

And it turns out that they were stealing Hannie's eraser.

Spotted 5.5 times (Poor Hannie. She gets like 3 sentences this book)

But just as they are about to confess guess who comes in but Karen and Addie's moms. As well as the principal and Mrs. Noonan. And all the girls are in some varying amounts of trouble.



Chapter 19 –Heroes


Well Karen and Addie are grounded for worrying the parents (Which could have easily been avoided if they told the same lie). But the parents are very proud of them for catching the thieves.

And on Monday the kids are calling them heroes. Hazza! Even Bobby congratulates them on catching the thieves.

361726.jpg

But to Karen's dismay, she cannot figure out why Nicole and Kathy did it. And Lisa surprisingly gives an adult answer

"I think they were stealing because they are not very happy

"Maybe they are having trouble in school. Or maybe they are having trouble at home. They probably wanted their teachers and parents to give them some help. So they did something to attract everyone's attention"


and then Seth says

"That's not the best way to ask for help [] but sometimes people think it is the only way"

Wish they focus on that more often. But Karen does feel sorry for them do I guess that's a plus.

Chapter 20- The Ceremony

It is sometime the next week and everything is returned to the students. And Hannie gets another mention (6.5). Still hasn't spoken since chapter one though.

Nancy has finally learned that she shouldn't take her dead grandma's ring to school. See I told you so!

And even better news on the day of the next badge ceremony, it turns out to be Karen's best day!

Well honestly nothing really happens during the badge ceremony. All that happens is that Karen gives her badge to Vicky (again we never see her again) and Addie gives her badge to a kid in Mr. Berger's class. Oh and Lisa cries.

Then the really good that happens is that it turns out that Karen had one of the highest scores of the 2AT test.

And that makes the whole family happy. Oh well:

Baby-Sitters Little Sister #73
Karen’s Dinosaur, Chapters 1-10


My ‘Inner Janine’ wants to ask whether the name of the series should have an apostrophe in it. Half a childhood (just half; these books ate the rest) spent reading these books tells me there will be plenty of things worth snarking and that it’s silly to focus on the small things . . .
