For the most part, my nightstand is noticeably ordinary. It is home to the usual things one deems important enough to store in a place that can be reached without leaving the refuge of familiar sheets and- the aptly named- comforter: a digital alarm clock (that has blinked the incorrect time since the power outage last year), my most prized records, and an instruction manual to a Canon A-1. Then, in a place of honor, on the side closest to my bed is a tower constructed of the books that leisurely grasp most of my attention and thoughts for the current season of interest. This great memorial rises above the choking layer of dust, that gives my poor nightstand a gray shade of neglect, upwards towards the heavens- or at least to an altitude almost level with the top edge of my mattress so that I might exert the least amount of physical energy to select one of these paperbound building blocks for a bedtime snack. What convicts me tonight is the shaming discovery I made as I was excavating some of the dust caked around the foundation of the tower. After hours of toiling with my tools of Pledge and a chisel, I was able to make out the lackluster silver lettering standing out against a pale blue spine that spelled out “Holy Bible”. Shoot.
I wish April Ludgate sat next to me in all my classes.
Is it wrong that I am usually disappointed every time I arrive at my truck in a surprised-and slightly repulsed- state due to the recurring realization that it is not a 1956 Jaguar Roadster (not unlike the one Sebastian drives in the film, Cruel Intentions)?

Oh, and lemme know if I missed anything.
“The Summer of Being ‘Out of Doors and Out of Control’”
Doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, I know. But I like it and I think it’s the most fitting title for this current warm season of 2011.
Taking a brief respite from my courtship with the former half of the 20th century to read “Atonement”. It’s one of my favorite films and I’m sure the novel will only be an elaboration on the exquisite and tragic story that was executed so beautifully on the screen.
Hopefully, I will not have to storm back onto Tumblr in a few days to pound out another irate review of a movie based on the novel (or short story). Still not sure why I got so pissed about “Button”.
Hey, Lane! How’re those mashupz?
See ya soon,
Purchased a new book bag (yes, I call it that so wut) and some shades today. U.O. was practically giving them away they were so cheap, so I gladly obliged them. Now I am ready for classes to start just like the giddy kindergartener version of myself, minus the X-Men lunch box (the exact one I had).
