    I wonder if I had to choose one seasonal food to have for the rest of my life if it would be Christmas food or Halloween food?

    Why couldn't have anyone of those weirdos kept the original names I wonder.

    It's a name and the book/movie isn't an adaptation but a translation.

    Thank you for the translations.

    I think that the character Brick from the TV show The Middle is one of the coolest characters on TV.

    I'm a reader too.

    I love Brick. I love all those kids, actually. They really illustrate the whole "kids just are who they are, we don't make them who they are" principle that I feel pretty strongly about. It would be hard for three people to be more different than those three characters are.

    Yeah that seems weird... unless there is something I am missing that makes the allusion to the word "bag" in his surname important? I thought it was just a name.

    My random thought:

    I went upstairs to heat up my soup for lunch, and found that randomly there was a block of Kerry Gold Dubliner cheese broken up into bits up for grabs. So I grabbed a few chunks to add to my lunch. I love my workplace sometimes.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.
