"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Life is full of Coincidence

Today I went to the dentist, which is not my favorite doctor to visit. But go I did and I received a fancy-pants cleaning because my family goes to one of the country's best dentists (I didn't know that until I was reading the newspaper the other day and came across an article on oral cancer. Apparently my dentist has the highest rate for catching oral cancer in his patients. It MIGHT be because he forces you to take an oral cancer screening, but I digress.) Anyway, I was getting all cleaned, but wasn't anywhere near as well-upkept as the dental hygienist would like. I need to floss, period.

So after that ordeal was over, I come home to check my feedreader, and I came to this gem from everycollegegirl.com - Why You Should + How to Floss Daily. Okay world I get it. I need to floss my goddamn teeth. I read you loud and clear.

I Am From

I am from blankets made out of long worn clothes,

from televisions, CCD classes and home-cooked meals.

I am from the suburbs, but every house has character.

From ice cream trucks and the neighborhood watch,

And the three oaks standing tall in the front yard,

growing as my sister grows, as I grow, as my brother grows.

I’m from the blessing of the baskets and midnight mass.

From Michele and David, Blanche and Raymond.

I’m from kisses on the mouth and constant teasing.

From Melissa’s shadow, from the middle of three.

I’m from “Don’t talk to strangers!” and “Don’t be so sensitive.”

and “Our Fathers” followed by “Hail Marys”.

From enveloping hugs and spanks on the butt.

I’m from Poland, not by blood but family.

From galumpkis, goulash, and the occasional pot roast.

I'm from the struggle of indentured servants trying to earn their freedom,

keeping their traditions alive through a hand-written recipe book, a cast-iron mold,

and a gilt-edged Bible.
