"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


Thoughts From an Acute Triangle (4)

Thoughts from an Acute Triangle is a feature I started where I discuss things related to books, authors, reading, or just me.  This is a place for me to be a little brainy or a little silly.  The conversation is always open for comments and if there is ever a topic you want me to discuss, please leave a comment!

I was up at 3am with some crazy insomnia.  This is what results from it.

A. Age: 23, nearly 24, which I really can't believe.  Am I too old to have a sleepover with cookie decorating?
B. Bed size: Twin...I need a new grown-up bed, but they're so expensive!!
C. Chore that you hate: I don’t like any chores. Only fun stuff please. I’m like a petulant child.
D. Dogs: Beagle/Bassett Hound mixes!  That's what my baby is.  Beagles are my family dog as well; Wooh Beagles!
E. Essential start to your day: Snooze button, snooze button, and more snooze button.  Then some juice.  Then some really obnoxious gangsta rap.  Yeah weird, I know.
F. Favorite color: I really enjoy bright colors but not neon bright: yellows, pinks, blues, & greens are my favorites.  Recently though, I've gotten really into gray for nail polish.
G. Gold or Silver: Silver has always been the go-to jewelry for me.  However, I do own some gold for those outfits that you just need gold for.
H. Height: 5'11&a half.  I'm JUST under 6' and I'm kinda pissed about it.
I. Instruments you play: I play the trumpet and the oboe.  Very different things to play, but I'm just so talented.
J. Job title: Graduate Student/Bookseller.  Not that I make too much money doing either, but that employee discount is one hell of a benefit.
K. Kids: Nada.
L. Live: Tampa, Florida, U.S.A  When it's nice outside, I love it.  When it pours for days I loathe it.  Alas, weather.
M. Mother’s name: Michele. With only ONE L; Don't screw it up.
N. Nicknames: My parents were very adamant that I be called Elizabeth growing up, but my best friends were always allowed to call me Lizzie.  Nowadays I answer to Elizabeth, Liz, Lizzie, Eli, or The Mayor...that one's a long story.
O. Overnight hospital stays: Huh...Why would the people who created this tag include this?  But just for the record, the only time was when I was born.  I turned yellow; it was a problem.
P. Pet peeves: I don't have enough time in the day, but really nasally voices are the worse, which I realize people don't have control over.  I'M SORRY MY PET PEEVE DISCRIMINATES BUT YOUR VOICE IS ANNOYING!!!
Q. Quote from a movie: "Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary." - John Keating (Robin Williams): Dead Poets Society
R. Right or left handed: Right is might.
S. Siblings: Older sister (28), who you've had the pleasure of meeting in my VALA videos.  Younger brother (15), who has also made a cameo in a video or two.  Love 'em.
T. Time you wake up: Well since I work very irregularly (which is so annoying), and my classes are on-line, I sleep 'til 10am.
U. Underwear: Ummm, another weird question.  1. Why wouldn't you wear them? 2. I wear hipsters.
W. What makes you run late: Reading and blogging.  Oh and Youtube taking forever uploading my videos!!!
X. X-Rays you’ve had: Head and feet.  Not going to discuss why.
Y. Yummy food that you make: Also known as Yummy Food Others Make Me: Pumpkin Bread, SuperChocolate Brownies, and Stuffed Porkchops.  Damnit, I'm hungry now.
Z. Zoo animal: Penguins and owls all the way.  I also really love bears.  They look so cute, but can kill you so easily.  Same with tigers.  Stupid predators with big teeth!!

Okay, now that that's done I suppose I should go to bed....If you do this, link it below!  GOOD NIGHT!!
