"Writing is different," Salinger insists. "Other people get into occupations by accident or design; but writers are born. We have to write. I have to write. I could work at selling motels, or slopping hogs, for fifty years, but if someone asked my occupation, I'd say writer, even if I'd never sold a word. Writers write. Other people talk."

--JD Salinger, in the novel "Shoeless Joe" by WP Kinsella.

I have no idea if the real author JD Salinger ever felt this way - he very well could have - but his fictional representative has said it perfectly in a way I never really could. How many of you on this reading list write and write and write, and go to sleep thinking, "I'm a writer," and yet you haven't even sold anything yet, or you work day jobs that appear to label you otherwise?

That is my exact and precise sentiment, that quote right there, on how I feel.

"They say that when good Americans die they go to Paris[.]" [...]

"Really! And where do bad Americans go when they die?" [...]

"They go to America[.]"

I was invited to a lunch date with Dad, Mary (my stepmother) and the two brats (James and Shari) in order to celebrate Shari's 16th, which I missed. It was really awesome, actually. Shari and I surprisingly got along, which was nice (we both requested to have kiddie place-mats and crayons to colour them with, which was fucking hilarious).

Somehow, the conversation came to my family originating from aliens.

"Uh, how?" I wondered.

My dad sighed. "Just think of your grandfather. Throughout all my my childhood I had to put up with this: When he needed to sleep, all he did was imagine a huge zero in his mind and he was out like a light."

I stared. "What?"

He nodded. "It's true. He just thought of a zero."

"The number?"

"Yes. Worked every time."

What the fuck. No wonder I'm insane.

Also, GIP. Because the icon is amazing and I'm going to use it as many times as I can while I can =D.

I totally ship Zuko/Mai. It's hard not to, especially with conversations like this:

Mai: I'm bored.
Zuko: I know.
Mai: I'm hungry.
Zuko: ...so what.
Mai: So, find me some food.
Zuko: ...sure.

Also, this:


Mai: Orange is such an awful color.
Zuko: *snerks* You're so beautiful when you hate the world.
Mai: I don't hate you.
Zuko: I don't hate you, too.

From Terry Pratchett's Witches Abroad:

"The Yen Buddhists are the richest religious sect in the universe. They hold that the accumulation of money is a great evil and burden to the soul. They therefore, regardless of personal hazard, see to it as their unpleasant duty to acquire as much as possible in order to reduce the risk to innocent people.

--pg 107, footnote

My Dad wrote this to me in order to explain what he wanted for Father's Day and his birthday (a donation to a charity in his name). This is the story that he decided to send my sisters, brother and I as a way of explaining.

"...that's just the weather report."


In terms of today's weather, they were actually right. I'm scared and confused. Does this mean the world is ending?

If you can live without caffeine or nicotine;

If you can be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains;

If you can resist complaining;

If you can understand when loved ones are too busy to give you any time;

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment;

If you can ignore friends' limited educations and never correct them;

If you can treat the rich and poor alike;

If you can face the world without lies or deceit;

If you can conquer tension without medical help;

If you can relax without liquor;

If you can sleep without the aid of drugs;

If you can have no prejudice against creed, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or politics —

— then you have almost reached the same level of spiritual development as your dog.
