I has Katie over today~ She came on Sunday and leaves tomorrow. We've been discussing "Sean kids" and therapists. "Therapists" being our way of talking about "the rapists", idek.

So today was meet with Rosie in Ft. Wayne day. It was fun! We also hit a half price bookstore, which was pretty neat. I picked up a CD of Liszt's Hungarian rhapsodies, a couch-travel type DVD of Germany, a book of illustration and history of world flags, a really neat German edition of some Handel music, and Malice Mizer's Merveilles album. I have no clue what a random Malice Mizer CD was doing in the middle of the classical section, mixed in with Mozart, but whatever. I can has!

Katie is a weeaboo and bought weeaboo shit. Like...7 volumes of manga. It was less than $30, though. But then 3 of them were Pokemon =/. The others were random Gunslinger Girl volumes. Katie insists I say something about that manga being about lolis with guns, so there, I said it.

Argh I hate the Superbowl. Damn it, mom, you're not supposed to care about sports! The Saints' having never gotten to the Superbowl before is NOT a good reason to suddenly care.

[livejournal.com profile] deecherrywolf tagged me for this meme.
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
6. Tag five people

"Take with you the swiftest of your wolves and go at once to the house of the Beavers," said the Witch, "and kill whatever you find there. If they are already gone, then make all speed to the Stone Table, but do not be seen. Wait for me there in hiding. I meanwhile must go many miles to the West before I find a place where I can drive across the river.

This is the beauty of being a big reader; there were quite a few books close to me, most of which were pretty "intelligent". I chose The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe because it's an old favorite of mine.

I tag whoever wants to do it, and [livejournal.com profile] tricolores, if you read this, consider yourself tagged.
