Team Edward/ The Sparkle Queen is Back!

I nearly died laughing...who wants to buy this for me?

In other news, yesterday I...

1. Packed half my life. PROOF:

2. Dragged THE MOST AWESOME GIRL EVER to The Container Store and the two of us manipulated huge boxes on subway trains. You wish you'd been there.
3. Saw Marc Salem and he read my mind.
4. Played counselor unto the masses
5. Studied for some finals
6. Watched "Gossip Girl" (oh, Chuck and Blair love) and "24" (and today, "House"- oh House!)
7. Learned about the existence of the following poem:

'Peace upon earth!' was said. We sing it,
And pay a million priests to bring it.
After two thousand years of mass
We've got as far as poison gas.

~Thomas Hardy

8. Attended Midnight Madness and enjoyed cookies and ice cream and pancakes!
9. Last but not least, Neil Gaiman would like you to know that George R. R. Martin (most fantastic fantasy writer ever) is not your b*tch.

Point is, y'all...when it's Finals Time and you're in pajamas, the most important thing to remember is that you've got to get your sparkle on!

Is english lit part of the Torah?

Anon 4:41,

You're asking me because of what happened at the Marc Salem event?

I have to disagree somewhat with Neil. Martin certainly isn't the slave of any reader, but art does not exist in a vacuum-- A Song of Ice and Fire has been made what it is in very large part by readers and fans. It's true that fans can have entitlement complexes nowadays, certainly, but that doesn't mean that an author can completely disregard the relationship which is created implicitly when a work and an author create a loyal fanbase. There is responsibility and respect demanded for both sides, and if either participant rejects this reality, I think the overall experience is cheapened for everyone.

After all, ASoIaF fans don't want George Martin to throw away his life for us; we simply would like him to do his job.
