"We have lost phone conversations, because talking on cell phones is no fun at all, and it’s harder than texting or typing. I do think we’ve lost that, but we’ve gained a lot with the internet. I feel like the internet has turned us all into letter writers. I think of my mother when I was a kid, she never wrote down anything but a grocery list. People didn’t write, because you’d call. Why would you write anything? But now we’re all writers.

So when people complain about grammar and punctuation, I think it isn’t that our grammar and punctuation have gotten worse, but that it used to be that only writers wrote. Only people who were in education wrote, but now we all write: we all text, we all post. I feel like we’ve lost phones but we’ve gained this whole different type of correspondence that hasn’t existed since the age of letter writing."

I can do the Frug. I can do the Robo Cop. I can do the Freddy. I cannot do the Smurf.

I don’t want to go to school, Mom.

And by school, I mean work. Because it is a busy day and I just want to respond to memes (it’ll happen, allinablur and talldecafcappuccino). And thanks to talldecafcappuccino, I have had Xanadu stuck in my head.

Xanadooooooooo. Xanadu-ooo-ooooooooooooo.

I make good life choices. Mostly because they’re forced on me, but I make them. And I find myself in unpleasant situations all the time. You know why? Because even if you have a choice it can and will be taken away from you. We’re all fate’s bitch. You might as well go ahead and bend over for destiny now.

But you do need a food processor …

Seven years ago, most of my friends went to buy the Deathly Hallows at a bookstore in Dublin, but I chose to walk back to Trinity College with a boy that broke my heart a few months later. I broke the cardinal rule: Books Before Boys.

I did read all of them right after I got home from the UK—I wanted to read the “original” versions and only had The Philosopher’s Stone.
