Picasso's pigeon in the peas
Early Thursday morning five major works of art including Picasso, and Matisse of where stolen from the museum of modern art in Paris. Apparently the museum's security system (including some of the surveillance cameras) had been broken for the past few days, and it was not working at the time or the thief, but one lone camera caught a masked intruder breaking a window padlock and then breaking the window.
The police aren't sure whether the thief was alone or in a team.
The estimated value of the paintings could be as much as $613 million.
The paintings that where stolen are:

  1. The pigeon and the peas by Pablo Picasso
  2. Pastoral by Henri Matisse
  3. Olive tree near Estaque by Georges Braque
  4. Woman with a fan by Amedeo Modigliani
  5. Still life with chandeliers by Fernand Leger

The paintings were not sliced out of there frames, the frames had been "carefully disassembled".
They're saying that the thief would be stupid to sell them, but what if a person had payed the thief?? or maybe she/he wanted them for them self??
They are calling the thief  a male, but are they just assuming, or could they tell?? I kind of like to think it's a
girl behind the whole thing!!
Woman with a fan by Amedeo Modigliani
Update: they still haven't caught the culprit!!

So the top ten baby names came out sometime this week, so guess what #1 for girls and #1 for boys are?? Isabella (Bella) and Jacob!!! Both names from twilight!!

I personally HATE Twilight (no offence twilight lovers) I'm just not in to things that almost all teenages girls like, (example: lady gaga, Hannah Montana, the Jonas brothers, and high school musical) well its just my pet peeve I guess. here is a very informative article about baby names. Quote from Jennifer moss author of one in a million baby name book and fonder of "Make sure the name can grow with your child and make sure they can live with it, Don’t make it too cutesy because think, can it work in the board room? Can they be a CEO?’’ 
My name is very unique I've never met someone with the same name/spelling!! its katalyn  But I go by Katy (:
