Joe Versus the Volcano (1990)
Patricia: I wonder where we'll end up?
Joe Banks: Away from the things of man, my love. Away from the things of man.
The Commitments (1991)
Joey: Look, I know you're hurtin' now, but in time you'll realize what you've achieved.
Jimmy Rabbitte: I've achieved nothing!
Joey: You're missin' the point. The success of the band was irrelevant - you raised their expectations of life, you lifted their horizons. Sure we could have been famous and made albums and stuff, but that would have been predictable. This way it's poetry.

If one more girl comes up to me and says she’s thinking about leaving, this will be my response: “Nope. Sorry. Can’t do that. I’ve filled my quota for that, and I simply can’t allow any more. See ya later!” And then I’ll just walk away. Because it honestly feels like they are dropping like flies and someone needs to tell them to stop it.
To look almost pretty is an acquisition of higher delight to a girl who has been...– Jane Austen
I found a new philosophy on life, via a T.V. show.
And that T.V. show is called Bones. I love the show. I love the premise, Ilove the predictable yet frustrating sexual tension between Bones and Booth, and I particularly love David Boreanaz. But I never expected the show to actually give me back anything, aside from a lot of entertainment. But it did. I gave me a new outlook on how to handle my life. You see, a couple days ago I was a...
A strange thing is happening with my Tumblr theme.
It changes every once in a while. Not drastically, just a little bit of formatting here and there. I like it. It keeps me guessing. Though, I have to admit that I like it best when it is in its prime, working as (I assume) the designers first intended it to. It’s pretty that way.

For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever...– Benjamin Button (via unproductiveprocrastination)
There seems to be an ant problem in our bathroom.
They’re just little ants. I know all ants are little, but these ones weren’t anything like those big black ones that remind you of Honey I Shrunk the Kids, you know, like really big ones that look like tiny black grapes with legs. The ants in the bathroom are very tiny, like itty-bitty grains of black rice. So tiny, you don’t even notice them at first. Well, I was looking at...
We read to know that we are not alone.– C.S. Lewis (via kari-shma)

Just think about how psychedelic the music video would be. Our heads would probably explode from the high levels of crazy.
That cat is TOTALLY a ninja. That’s kind of creepy.
The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on...– Terry Pratchett (via kari-shma)
After one of my professors asked the class if...
Guy: We went to Panama.
Professor: Yah? Did you see the Canal?
Prof: Yah, it's kind of big deal, you can't miss it.
Guy: No, we didn't see any Canal.
Prof: Really? It's right in the middle of everything. You went to Panama and didn't see the Panama Canal?
Guy: Oh sorry, we went to Panama City...in Florida.
Prof: Oh, well anything interesting happen?
Guy: A guy got stabbed in our hot tub.
Prof: .......A guy got stabbed in your hot tub?
Prof: Was there a reason he got stabbed in the hot tub?
Guy: I guess he stole someone's beer, or something.
Prof: Well then, I suppose that's as good reason as any to stab someone.
You know what I love?
When there is a discussion going on in one of my classes and someone tries to contribute to the conversation by simply dropping a name of a well-known, slightly high-brow, literary work that is only mildly related to the discussion topic at hand. The best part is when they don’t even give their reasons for why they chose to reference that work. They just put it out there and leave it. ...
So This is my new theme.
I’m not sure how I feel about it. It’s pretty…and I like the flowers…but there are some flaws. I just needed a change. We’ll see if I warm up to it.
