So I totally know I need to catch up on my WB questions (I have like 175 waiting for me :-/) so I decided that I was gonna do like 5 of them right in a row and maybe have a little something to post. I think I’ll probably do another review today too. 🙂 It’s spring break for my college so I have three full days of no work and no school to get some of this done.
I love the Goodwill. Well, technically Amvets, but I love pretty much any thrift store. Goodwill, Amvets, Salvation Army…you name it I love it. Not only because I love the idea and the practicality of reusing clothes and expanding my closet for way, way less than anywhere else. No I love it because it allows me to spend money on my favorite items ever, for really ridiculously cheap.

I think I’m going to start posting all the answers to the Writer’s Block (WB) question that I do on LJ here. I like some of the stuff they ask and I’d like to spread the word about it a little, to those that don’t like LJ the way I do.
Remember, I don’t answer all of the questions they ask. Just the ones I like.
What is your favorite opening line of a book, and why?
“When Mary Lennox was sent to Misselthwaite Manor to live with her uncle, everybody said she was the most disagreeable-looking child ever seen.”
It’s my favorite for a simple reason: it’s the start of my favorite book ever. I love The Secret Garden with an undying fangirl-ism. It’s such a simple story and yet it’s so captivating and it’s got such a good, upbeat feel and it makes you feel good and you just can’t get tired of it. Ever, in my opinion.
This line is, of course, followed closely by:
“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.” – Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
“Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun.” –The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
So what are your favorites?
But not like I was last time. This time, I’m scared of the future.
Let me explain.
