I know that the death cab and metric soundtracks are good. I think you might also like the airborne toxic event, marina and the diamonds, two door cinema club, Dragonette, and ellie goulding. you could just listen to them on youtube and see.
You are absolutely correct, I do love Airborne Toxic event and Two Door Cinema club! They’re super awesome. I’ll have to check out the other bands that you mentioned! Thanks! :-)
That reminds me of Eurotrip even though I guess it is spelled differently or something. I hope you read a great book soon.
Thanks! Me too! I’ve got a rather large pile (really bunch of piles) to get through, I think that’s why it’s taken me so long. It’s just so daunting to have so many to get though! I’m stupidly intimidated by large tasks. That includes this books. The bigger the gook the longer it takes for me to even decide to pick it up and start reading it. I have no idea why. Anyway, I’m sure at least one of the many books I have yet to read will be great!
It’s a book called Everything Nice by Ellen Shanman. It’s about this girl called Mike who loses her mom at a very young age and grows up to be kind of an ass hole. She loses her job and no one in the marketing world wants to hire her because she doesn’t play well with others. She stumbles in to this job as a substitute teacher for a life skills class at a private school, and it is there that she learns how to function like a normal human being. It wasn’t a bad book, it just wasn’t great either.
I heard that everything else by Foster the People sucks, so I wouldn’t recommend that. I can send you Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros (I accidentally bought it twice, if that makes you feel any better about it). I can also send you Sleigh Bells.
I would greatly appreciate any music that you wanted to send me. KNowing that you bought two actually does make me feel better about it! haha
I have an iTunes giftcard and like 90000000 different CDs that I want/need to buy, and I can’t decide what to use the giftcard on. Here’s a list of CDs that I’m thinking of. Please let me know if A. You have heard it B. If you think it is or isn’t worth it C. Have another recommendation that you think I might like better and would be a good use of my money.

Are you more excited to be in London or more excited to see the Olympics? If it were me, it'd be the former... I LOVE England but I've never been and I would give my left arm to go, Olympics or not.
Well, if I was being totally honest I would have to say I’m mostly excited just to be going back to London. This whole thing came about when my friends and I were 16 and we went to Europe. We saw that London was a candidate city for the Olympics and 2 of us decided then and there that if they won the candidacy we would come back for the Olympics. So, here it is, almost 7 years later, and we’re making our plans to go. We only got a day and a half in London and it wasn’t NEARLY enough. Especially now that she and I are Doctor Who fans (she just went with me to the Doctor Who themed bar in Brooklyn), we are determined to find a TARDIS somewhere. Haha I’m not saying that I’m not excited about going to the Olympics; I’m definitely giddy and excited about getting go to the Olympics! I think I’m just more excited to go back and explore London (and possibly parts of Ireland) with one of my really good friends.
I just got an email confirming that my request for tickets was confirmed! Sadly, of the 5 events that we requested we only got 1 of our events. I’m super happy to say though that the event we got was tennis! Jenna and I are both HUGE tennis fans! I CAN’T WAIT TO GO TO THE OLYMPICS!!! We get to see Wimbledon! I’M GOING BACK TO LONDON! I AM GOING TO FIND A TARDIS! We’re also going to try and get more tickets from the live sale in August, but for now we are definitely going to see tennis!!
if something that makes you uncomfortable and/or miserable is “[blank] as balls” does that mean that balls make you uncomfortable and/or miserable?
Bwahahaha I never thought about it that way! I’ve only ever used the saying hot as balls, I’ve never replaced the word hot for any other word. I really don’t know how to answer this lol. Uhm… uh… Balls don’t really make me uncomfortable and/or miserable, but sticky humid heat does.
I approve of the way you described your temperature situation back with the storming.
Hot as balls? That is a term I frequently use when it’s hot and I’m uncomfortable and/or miserable. I guess it’s probably not the best saying for me to use since do not have balls nor do I know if balls are hot generally, but it is a saying that I’ve grown accustomed to using and it tends to get my point across so I guess there’s some truth in it. Maybe?
Why do commercials have to be so fucking loud?! It’s so annoying! I have to turn up my tv when the show is on just to be able to understand what’s being said, and then they take a commercial break and it’s like I’ve turned the volume all the way up!
So the thunder has been so bad tonight that I’ve nearly screamed at least 15 times already; apparently those were just the warmup. Starting at 9 pm the power flickered a couple of times but remained on, well at around 9:30 it apparently decided it didn’t want to stay on anymore and promptly shut off. This abrupt loss in power was instantly followed my the loudest crack of thunder yet; it shook my apartment and scared me so bad that I am unashamed to admit I almost cried (I actually had tears in my eyes). Thank god my dad bought me flashlights for different rooms of my house that automatically come on when the power goes out, or I would have been sitting in my apartment alone, crying, and shit out of luck. Now here I lay on my couch hoping to god the power comes back on sometime soon, because it’s hot as balls in here with no fans on.

i was just joking :-) seriously, it’s going out of business which is very sad… you should not feel bad for using their coupon at all. I guess it’s a good time to get whatever deals you can, while you can, but it is a bummer and I was just joking.
Haha Ok, just checking! It’s so sad that they’re closing though! They’re trying to stay open but it’s probably not going to end well. Which sucks for me because I hate shopping at Barnes and Noble. I know where everything is at Borders, and they seem so much friendlier there. Also in general I think more people should spend money on books. Books are the best. I have electronic books, but I’ve never read any of them, it just seems so wrong.
hurry! they’re going out of business as we speak! loot the place!!
I can’t tell if you mean this in a take advantage sort of way or if it’s meant in an it’s awful you should feel bad for using their coupon because they need money sort of way :-/. I will say that I have always supported Borders; even before they had the coupons I shopped there a lot, the coupons have just given them more of my business. I can say that 50% of my money in high school and early college went to gas and food the other 20% went to Target 20% went to Borders and the other 10% went to the movie theater.
don’t buy dorian gray… i have it and you can borrow! unless you want your own copy :)
Thanks for the offer lovely! Yeah, I picked it because it’s a pretty version. I have the free digital copy on my computer, iTouch, and iPhone. I actually have most of those books in free digital copy, but I want the pretty books. I prefer real books to digital ones, but when I can’t afford to buy books, the free digital ones are ALWAYS nice!
I disagree wholeheartedly with Kerrigan’s anti-conflation argument, but he was a pretty smart guy. As a Shakespeare Studies minor, I am not going to tell you to not get that, but I am going to tell you that there are better editions. FWIW.
Thanks a lot for your opinion! I really appreciate it! I mostly liked these ones because of how they look, but judging by your opinion maybe I’ll pick one of the other ones and get a different Shakespeare version that’s not commented on by someone else. Thanks again!
I think the only one that has anything particularly special about it is the Shakespeare one. It is annotated and includes and introduction by John Kerrigan (I’ll be honest, I have no idea who that is). Other than that I choose them because they’re all books that I haven’t read, they’re pretty, and they match my copy of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.
I have a 50% off any one item coupon for borders and I can’t decide what to buy! I need suggestions asap! Anyone have any great books that they think I would like or that my book collection desperately needs?
i definitely thought it made sense and was eloquent! :) also, is there a way for me to reply to what you said about the suits post? because i wanted to but ican’t figure it out :(
As far as replying goes there’s no button you can click that will let you reply to a reply, but there are ways that you can reply to what was said. There are 2 ways that I have used in the past.
1. This way! Haha You can just cut and paste the person’s reply into a new text post. It’s pretty easy, but it’s annoying if you have more than one reply that you want to reply to, unless you want to have multiple windows open and cut and paste them one after another.
2. You can take a screen cap of the reply then attach the screen cap to a new photo post. This works well when you have multiple replies to respond to because you can screen cap all the different replies and then upload the different photos in to one post.
Those are the 2 ways that I have seen and used, I one of them will work for you!
Well hey I could win your heart pretty easily then. :P
Haha A lot of the things that I put on that list are things that I have in common with a lot of my really good friends. It’s going to sound cheesy but I feel like your friends do win at least some part of your heart. Also, it was kind of hard for me to come up with more things after first 1st 3. #1 is actually the #1 best way to get in the door if I’m pissed at you. If you make me really mad and want me to talk to you, bring me those cookies and you at least have won me over a little bit. Haha #2 is also the best way to win over my ovaries… which means you also have to be of the male kind because only men effect my ovaries. I think that’s the only one that is gender specific and is not applied to my friends.
