1. Today is my grandma's birthday, lulzily enough. Also Watanuki's, the Sakuras', and C!Syaoran's.

2. Probably old meme, but a book rec: Lies My Teacher Told Me by James W. Loewen. It basically talks about a lot of the lies and inaccuracies perpetuated by American History textbooks (maybe this is why American History was so boring?), and why they're wrong. Besides being interesting from a social and historical perspective, I think it's also a good writing resource because one of the major points it makes is that perfect, inhuman heroes are unrealistic and much harder to identify with than ordinary people.

Cut for long lists being longCollapse )

ETA: 6. Also, also-! Nicole needs to take a fucking shower, srsly. And wash her clothes, and not sleep in her clothes. And I have no idea what's up with her or if she's just stressed out, but every time I've asked her if she's ok, she's blown me off, so I don't want to be rude and press it. But at the same time, I can't help but think that she's really not all right, since she was ditching again yesterday, and she's such a grades perfectionist that I've got to think that something's up. Argh. Now I feel annoyed all over again.
