(917): I just ate an adderall and jelly sandwich in front of my mom. Homework time!
For some reason, it made me happy. Now, to be fair, when I took Adderall, it was a necessary prescription (please, dear God, let me back on!), and I get the impression this person may not have a legal script for said "homework helpers". But either way, I'm diggin' it.
For old times' sake, here is one of my favorites:
(818): I can only speak casual parseltoungue, im not bad though. just the general, "wheres the bathroom?" "open the chamber of secrets" that type of stuff
Oh, and by the way, 20 DAYS UNTIL HP: HBP!!!

I fall into an interesting demographic (in my opinion), because I am an educated woman in my mid-twenties who enjoyed reading the Twilight series. I am certainly not alone, but we are an admittedly outnumbered group. Mind you, I did not say they were good books, and I think it is a bit snotty to refer to them as 'literature', even though I suppose they are in fact.
I consider myself to be a Harry Potter fangirl, so I can appreciate the nickname, but the craziness that is often attached is beyond me. Especially the craziness over Robert Pattinson. OK, so he has moments of charm, and is very occasionally handsome, but there really is nothing special about him. Mostly it goes over my head because the character of Edward, to which RobPatt owes his following, is in no way appealing to me.
So it is with a slightly shameful smirk that I report that he was clipped by a taxi in Manhattan while running to escape from tween fangirls! The good, Christian woman I aim to be is shaking her head at my glee, but it made me laugh at the sheer ridiculousness of our society and their priorities!
At least if he had to go to the hospital, they might bathe him...

According to the handouts, the blueberries are what help with memory and other cognitive function, so in addition to the juice, Im noshing on berries right now. Although, I am contemplating coffee and a donut... oh well, I can't become a crazy health-nut overnight!
The biggest downside (well, really the only downside as of yet) is that the juice tastes pretty heinous. It's very... cloudy, even after a thorough shaking. We shall see. Maybe by the end of the week, I will love the stuff. We shall see...

This book follows a demon (Crowley) and an angel (Aziraphale) through Eden to Apocolypse-to-be. Along the way we are introduced to countless characters, all of which play into the story poetically. From Satanic nuns to the Four Horsemen, these characters weave the story together.
"God does not play dice with the universe: He plays an ineffable game of His own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players [i.e. everybody], to being involved in an obscure and complex variant of poker in a pitch-dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a Dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time."
