    Everything you never wanted to know about me  (♯^.^ღ)

Remember the books you had to read back in high school and college? Books like Animal Farm, Catcher in the Rye, Anna Karenina, The Crucible, The Great Gatsby, A Prayer for Owen Meany, Jane Eyre and a hundred other deep, profound, thought-provoking reads? And remember how you said, “My gawd, those were the most boring books I’ve ever read in my life. I swear I’ll never read anything with literary merit ever again. From now on it’s nothing but sparkly vampires for me!"

Remember that? Man, I loved those books! So who's writing brilliant stuff like that today? Who's writing the books that future students will complain about in the high schools and universities of tomorrow?

I've no idea, but I'd love to find those authors, buy them a bottle of Beam and plagiarize all their work.

Yup, that's me. Oh, and I hate Oxford commas, too. (#^.^#)

Incidentally, the font at the top of the page is Painty Paint by vin. Isn't it awesome? (*^-‘) 乃
