once when i was little, i claimed it was a teacher’s work day so i wouldn’t have to go to school and mom’s not an idiot so of course it didn’t work, but when we got to the school, we found it was a teacher’s work day and that made me think i had super powers so i started trying to kill classmates with my mind to confirm the theory

You thought you had super powers so you immediately attempted to murder everyone

Day 28 - 30 Day Book Challenge

Favorite title of a book.

This book title made me laugh not just because I love puns, but because one of my besties, Jo (small-as-a-world) and I were hanging out one night a couple years ago and her boyfriend-now-husband called us drunk with one of his friends and told us they decided to open a literary themed bar and the first drink they thought of was Tequila Mockingbird. Plus, I really love To Kill A Mockingbird.

I am a reader. I am a writer. People assume I do these things to escape. You couldn’t be more right. I’m escaping a world I don’t like. A world I have no control in. In this world, I am nothing. I am a color, a height, a weight, a number. But in the world of books and writing, I am amazing. I am powerful. I am different. People are better. Worlds are endless. Change is possible. Life is manageable.

"I remember working with a law school in which white men heavily dominated the faculty. They used lots of sports metaphors (doing an end run, Monday morning quarterbacking, and so on), with legal jargon thrown in for good measure. I suggested that this was not a particularly welcoming trait in their school, that in fact it was sexist, but they paid little attention. I made my point by speaking for about five minutes in dressmaking terms: putting a dart in here, a gusset there, cutting the budget on the bias so it would be more flexible, using a peplum to hide a course that might be controversial. The women in the room laughed; the men did not find it humorous… Language is power, make no mistake about it. It is used to include and exclude and to keep people and systems in their places."

"If it wasn’t for this job, I’d still be on heroin. A few years ago, one of my bosses came to me, and he said: ‘You’re approaching a crossroads in life, and pretty soon there will be no turning back.’ Then he told me: ‘Go to rehab right now. And your job waiting for you when you get back.’""What was the boss’s name?""Robert DelPrete."

Day 27 - 30 Day Book Challenge

The most surprising plot twist or ending.

Not going into if these were plot twist, ending surprises, or some other kind of surprise altogether, but regardless, these books surprised me

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
The Maze Runner by James Dashner - this happened mostly because I didn’t realize until I got to the end that it was part of a series

Most surprisingly infuriating ending? In The Lake of the Woods by Tim O’Brien

Evangeline Lilly understands perfectly what it takes to be a strong female character 

Filmmakers, take note: There’s more to gender equality than putting a warrior woman on screen.

That was the message The Hobbit star Evangeline Lilly sent at last week’s San Diego Comic Con. During a Nerd HQ Q&A with the actress, a female audience member asked Lilly where she found the inspiration for her badass elf character, Tauriel. Lilly refreshingly pointed out that while Tauriel is a fearsome warrior, that’s not necessarily why she’s so great.

I asked Benedict Cumberbatch a question this week. As a door prize, I got a penguin-shaped flash drive, and here is what was on it. Many thanks to wordplaying for helping me get this online!
