Like Heaven, except less guys

My local Borders long ago lost my respect when I realized the religion section was three times as large as the young adult, twice as big as the science fiction, and only about half as small as the romance. (Possibly this might be a bit exaggerating.) However, it has gained it back.
By becoming Young Adult reader heaven.
Don't I wish.
Well, it's almost that good. I bought four different YA books; no doubt I'll blog about them later. I don't want to put them here in case they end up being something I dislike. It was seriously beautiful though-five huge bookshelves filled, with something other than Twilight and the Pendragon series. While I like both, I get a bit sick of them.
On another, more random note;

Isn't it cool? You can find them here. They're from Cassandra Clare's Infernal Devices series. If they weren't over fifty bucks, I would probably have one. However, I'm a teenager and have decided to save my money after realizing that all the colleges I like are 50 grand a year.
(Enter image of me choking.)
Then, there's this-Scrivener.
It's a writing software that looks supremely cool. I'm asking for a new program for Christmas. Unfortunately, that one only runs on Macs, because it's by far the coolest I've seen. It does digital sticky notes, snapshots, all sorts of interesting, awesome things. I love my Dell computer, though.
Off to finish Chapter Ten now . . . Or read . . . . Or research college.
I'm going to chose reading or writing, actually. If I do that, then I won't have to go crawl into a corner of emo.

Hey, those are what I was twittering (tweeting?) Cassandra Clare about! I asked how long the lady was going to make them, but she didn't know.

I, too, was going to get one. But then I saw the price and was like... nevermind.

Moving on.
Borders has more books WAHOO.
That is very exciting :)

Moving on-again.

Moving on-take three.
I'm watching The Matrix and adding stuff on to my blog. But mostly watching Matrix. I love this movie.
(It's based off of my life, you know.)

Hi, you don't know me, but I ran into your blog googling something... oh yeah Uglies... anyway! This is going to seem creepy but reading your blog is like reading what my own blog would look like if I would give myself the time to blog. Shit. It's like you're doing the exact same thing as me =) anywaaayyyy I just wanted to let you know that Page Four is the PC equivalent of Scrivener =) at least I think it's awesome for writing.

just to prove I'm not some creepy old dude... my facebook is /thorgerdurosp (yes, I'm Icelandic, pity me please) and I would like to get to know you ;)

Maggie: I love Cassandra Clare. And Borders. And the Matrix. And I shall send you chapter ten.
Þorgerður Ösp: Thanks, I'm glad you like my blog! Hah, Iceland? That sounds so cool. I don't even know how I'd begin to pronounce your name, though. I feel so uncultured!
