This just about sums up my relationship with my brother.

Nicki Minaj. Don't judge me.
My Slanket. Yes, I am Liz Lemon.
Kate Nash and her ability to write songs about my life.
Boys with dark curly hair (no thanks on the cigarette, though).
Red lipstick and other fun makeup.
What makes you happy?

"When I look at my room, I see a girl who loves books."
Somewhere around the fifth or seventh grade I figured out that I could ingratiate myself to people by making them laugh. Essentially, I was just trying to make them like me. But after a while it became part of my identity."

the love you take is equal to the love you make"

rather lay awake in your bed full of sorrows."

One of my new favorite websites. You can basically add anything from anywhere online to a nice, condensed, in-one-place wishlist.
This is mine:
Check it out, I promise you'll love it. Or at least like it.
So I'm obviously not posting once a day...or week, even.
I love books. Love love love love love them. I literally cannot remember a time in my life before I could read, and I feel like books have really shaped who I am, especially these -

I love television a bit too much. I tried to narrow my favorite shows down to three and couldn't quite make that.
1. Arrested Development
By far and away the cleverest show ever shown on television. Such a travesty that the wonderfully dysfunctional Bluth family only lasted three seasons. If you've never seen this show, do yourself a favor and rent it. I promise you will fall in love after three episodes.
2. 30 Rock
I love love love this show. Written from a backstage perspective of a weekly sketch comedy show a la SNL, it's magnificently fast-paced and hilarious. A worthy successor to AD's title of Funniest Show on Television.
3. Mad Men
4. Parks and RecreationAs The Office started declining in quality, Parks and Rec did the opposite. Such a funny mockumentary about the travails of life in small government - I realize that sentence sounds a bit ridiculous, but trust me.

I have two favorite movies, and they're a bit disparate.
1) Jaws (1975)
I can't say anything about this film that hasn't been said by thousands of people for over thirty years, but I will say that I love that this movie is so much more than a big shark. There's so much human emotion - love and hate and humor - at the heart of it. My two favorite scenes are the one with Brody and his son at the dinner table and of course Quint's famous Indianapolis speech.
2) Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)
So funny. So well-written. So quintessentially '80s. SO GOOD.
