Seriously, people. I mean, look at this thing and just fall in love:
It’s screaming at me, “FILL ME WITH BOOKS! PUH-LEASE! I’M SO EMPTY, SO LONELY…SO COLD INSIDE!”
Also, registering for gifts is an odd beast. Maybe I’ll say more on that later. The above is our biggest item (size- and dollar-wise) and we fully expect no one to get it, which is fine and all. But booklovers can dream though, right?
I want you to want me
I need you to need me
I’d love you to love me
I’m begging you to beg me
– “I Want You To Want Me” by Cheap Trick
It was bad. Other words to describe the experience include: abominable, atrocious, awful, contemptible, criminal, dire, disgraceful, disgusting, execrable, heinous, loathsome, low, malodorous, mean, obnoxious, peccant, putrid, rancid, rank, reprehensible, repulsive, rotten, sad, scandalous, shameful, sickening, stinking, terrible, unfavorable, vile, villainous, wicked, wretched, and wrong. Really, any of those will work. Also, doodie.
If you’ve read the book, I suggest you stay far, far away. If you haven’t read the book, let me spoil one part for you in the hopes that you’ll understand I’m doing it for your own good and to save you money and time and brain cells: you will, in all seriousness, witness teenage kids tripping on drug cookies while a satyr line-dances to Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face.”

‘Cause I am due for a miracle
I’m waiting for a sign
I’ll stare straight into the sun
And I won’t close my eyes
Till I understand or go blind
– “Stare at the Sun” by Thrice
I was going to post this to DeviantArt, but that site seems to really hate me lately. But here you go! A little Percy Jackson fanart. I’m just finishing up Book 4, and I really like this series. Can’t wait for the movie next year. Tara and I are going to be the first two in line, dressed as sexy Athena and bloated Dionysus, respectively. I kid, I kid. Maybe…
Wish I knew what you were looking for
Might have known what you would find
– “Under the Milky Way” by The Church
I hid myself from failure and fear
Oh my dear you’re a threat to the bad in us all
They tell themselves that each word from your lips
Or the grace in your eyes overcomes any fall
– “Kite” by Copeland
It was all about the parka, really.
Speaking of Scott Pilgrim, I’m possibly going to be cosplaying as the leading lad for the upcoming New York Comic Con. So long as I can find a cheap parka to wear, that is. If not, I’ll just be a dude with an SP shirt and a lot of excitement, also known as a Scottaholic. Either works for me, really.
Question of the day: When did Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy get married (1984, 1988, 1996, 2001, or 2006)?
Let’s make a date out of the cinema
Then stay out until early in the morning
I always like it ’cause we take it slow
While everyone around us seems so hurried
– “On My Mind” by New Found Glory
It was absolutely horrible. But note the key words pertaining to my sister D: she treated.
I wasn’t a huge fan of the book by any means (click to see my review of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight), but if someone, say, found themselves with $10 and a hunger for some vampiric media and they had to choose between seeing this movie and flipping some pages…I’d behoove them to buy the book. Behoove, people. The movie is all about the staring, the bad acting, the creepy abusive relationship which tweens can’t get enough of, and the plotless plot. Meh.
And that has been more than enough words spent writing about this doomed trainload. Dissenters, fire away!
If it’s a broken part, replace it
But if it’s a broken arm then brace it
If it’s a broken heart then face it
