I am your anti-drug.


  • I just cracked my sternum. It felt like cracking my back, I suppose, but it was my sternum. Should I be concerned?

  • I have a new friend in Ireland. We play Wasabi together. I win.

  • Instead of going to the Godby Homecoming game, I avoided the torrential rainstorms and the tornadoes. I helped Deb get ready for her Homecoming Dance and went home and slept. And then watched UB and GA Collapse )

  • I am very much looking forward to the weekend. I need some sleeping in, and some fun.

  • My midterm grade for Gov't still isn't up. She said Friday. (Cut to me, checking my grade on the hour every hour)

  • I have Deborah all next week while my parents are on their cruise. I offered to babysit my mom's Prius, too, but she wouldn't hear of it.

I, like my older sister, am unable to even begin to imagine how she could turn counterclockwise.

As two people who previously may have assumed they were at least somewhat left-brained, I have decided that this is a government scheme to make us all think we're right brained.


I went back to the page and suddenly now she's spinning the other way. I watched intently for a minute, and then she started spinning clockwise again.

this article explains the illusion of it.

Answering a question posed to her at tonight's book reading at Carnegie Hall in New York, Harry Potter author JK Rowling said she "always thought Dumbledore was gay" and that he originally fell in love with the wizard Grindelwald.

Rowling also said she had read through Steve Kloves' script for the movie adaptation of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and corrected a passage in which Dumbledore was reminiscing about past loves by crossing it out and scrawling "Dumbledore is gay" over it.

Upon hearing her response, a hush fell over the audience in attendence and then applause exploded. Rowling remarked that if she had known that would be the response, she would've revealed her thoughts on Dumbledore earlier.

More on tonight's event to follow shortly, including the full question and answer segment!
