I'm going to LONDON in February :) I'm so excited! My Dad is going over for a conference so Mom and I are tagging along, we're going to shop while he works ;)

And where we're staying in London is right near Baker Street!

What places should I be checking out? Any great shopping spots to recommend?

In other news, Raising Hope is the cutest show ever. Is anyone else watching it?

Virginia: We sang a song! Anybody can sing a song. Charles Manson can sing a song.
Burt: He's actually pretty darn good. Mike has his album.
Virginia: He is good, but that doesn't mean you want him helping you raise your child.

Based on the books on your bookshelf, what conclusions would people draw about you?

That I'm insane? My books are sorted by genre, then author, then series and publication date.
I don't really have much to say, I just wanted to use that quote as a subject title.

It's been a long time since I've written a personal entry, I'm terrible at talking about myself. I don't know why, I think I'm just convinced that no-one wants to hear it. Do you ever have something completely random that you're really excited about? And all you want to do is go on and on about it, but you can't because you know that no-one gets it?

I like to be polite, and, as far as I'm concerned, it's polite to talk to people about things they're interested in. It's not like its a chore. I don't know a thing about motorcycles but I'm happy to listen to my friend Trish talk about them for hours because she loves them. I just feel like that's all I ever do, talk about things other people are interested in.

So here are the things I'm interested in this week, whether you care/get them/are interested or not.

To Kill A Mockingbird
They made us read this in the eleventh grade and I hated it. I probably would have enjoyed the book if it wasn't for the fact that I was being forced to read it. This makes me really sad because I just re-read the book and it's incredible. I can't believe I almost spent my life carrying around bad memories of To Kill A Mockingbird, and I know that a lot of people still do. I really wish that this book wasn't that book that everyone has to read in high school. I think it deserves a lot more respect than to be shoved down the throats of a bunch of teenagers who couldn't care less year after year.

My new green military jacket
There's not a lot to say here, except that it's awesome and I love it. And it was only $20. And it goes with everything.

Light Me Up
The first album from The Pretty Reckless was released this week. It's amazing! I love them so much. Listen to My Medicine, You, Light Me Up and Nothing Left to Lose. They won't disappoint. Listen to Light Me Up on youtube. You, Nothing Left to Lose.

People who go onto the forums/blog posts of things they don't like just to insult them
This frustrates me so much because there's nothing you can do about it. I really pity them for thinking that it's OK to try to force your opinions on other people. It's not. And now it's gotten to the point where if I read an article saying they're making a Vampire Academy movie, I know that I can't scroll down. I just have to avoid the comments completely because all it will do is get me worked up. How terrible is it that we can't use the comments to talk about how excited we are without being attacked? Sometimes the world just makes me want to cry...and punch things..hard.
