“And from that moment forward, I picked up anything I could find and I hoisted it over my head, and I ate nothing but protein shakes, falcon eggs, and ROCKS. Because I’ll tell ya girls, it’s a man’s world out there, and to get ahead, you’ve gotta be stronger than a man; you’ve gotta be a WO-MAN. I AM WOMAN. HEAR ME SMASH.”—Umbridge (A. 1, S. 6)
“Lunch. That’s what we call it in my country. L-U-N-C-H. Lunch. I’m fond of lunch. I am, in fact, a lunch aficionado. Give me liberty or give me lunch. Breatkfast comes around too early in the day, and dinner can interfere with one’s plans for the evening, but lunch is right on the money, the only thing it interupts is work…I require lunch on a daily basis. I’m insured against non-lunch by Blue Cross, Blue Shield, and Blue Cheese. …A hearty lunch is essential for growing bodies. Beyond that, it’s a many-splendored thing. Man does not live by deals alone. Lunch is beauty. Lunch is truth. The Rubenesque beauty of chocolate pudding soaking up cream. The truth embodied in the Brechtian dictum, ‘First feed the face.’ Butter the bread, boys! Split the elusive pea! Hop to it! Lunch justifies any morning and sedates the worst afternoons. I would partake. I would partake.”—Tom Robbins, Fierce Invalids Home From Hot Climates
It’s just one of those days, when I don’t want to do a full body check to see how many more red scaley disease-dots are infecting the hard-to-reach areas of my body and put oily, pajama-staining crap on them, which doesn’t really do much, except possibly give me cancer. Y’know, just one of those days.
“Cuarón instructed Radcliffe, Grint and Watson to write an essay on their characters, explaining what they thought about them. In a case of life imitating art, Radcliffe was pleased with his short essay, Watson wrote sixteen pages and Grint did not even bother.”—One reason why Radcliffe, Grint, and Watson are perfect for their roles as Potter, Weasley, and Granger. They really are the golden trio. (via sluterin) (via hopesichord) (via colorsblend, championsheart) (via mykindofrisk)
