Not a blog, but anyone looking to understand current events should read Paris 1919: Six Months That Changed The World by Margaret MacMillan. It goes into great detail about the first six months of the Paris Peace Conference, which played a huge role in shaping the world as we know it today. There was also a documentary made about it. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to understand the modern world.

Once I am able to upload my consciousness to the Internet, I will be. AND IT WILL BE AMAZING.

Have you heard the original Book Of Love, by The Magnetic Fields? I think you’d like it. And them.

I have, and I actually like Peter Gabriel’s version better……my bad. I haven’t liked much of the Magnetic Fields that I’ve listened to, which is strange. But, hey. It happens. I only have so many feels, and most of them are concentrated on television.

ERICA!! congratulations, you have now convinced me to read neil gaiman..your influence on me and you share of my brain continues to grow

BEN! Good. Neil Gaiman is good for your brain. He makes it happy and warm and amazing. Definitely read American Gods. I have a feeling it is just the book for you. But Stardust is my favorite. And Coraline. And Neverwhere. And Sandman. Prepare for more quote spam until next week when I see his visage in the flesh in front of my very eyes.

I am having a little problem with the permanence of it all, but I think it will be good. I am proud of it, and I will be always. It’s just a scary change. But I guess if I can uproot myself and move 8 hours away from my hometown, I can do this. And I figured it would probably cost a lot, which is fine. I’d rather pay more for quality.

It’s definitely something I am passionate about! I want to get a purple heart and bronze star with my father’s initials. I really need to consult someone with actual artistic talent though, because I really don’t know what I want it to look like. And I am such a big baby, but you’re right. I’ll deal with it.

…those are weaknesses?

No, they’re just things that I adore.
