Another Theory To Help You With Your Life
It's best to get your own copy.
Two copies in the same apartment is not excessive, it's celebratory.
You won't regret it, because otherwise you will just stare longingly at someone else's copy, even if you are re-reading To Kill A Mockingbird
on a blanket in the park and it is a beautiful day.
Read faster, damnit!
From The Frighteningly Accurate File
As if the "What Kind of Liberal-Book-New York Neighborhood-Cough Syrup Are You?" quizzes didn't give me enough personal insight:
You are The Hierophant
Divine Wisdom. Manifestation. Explanation. Teaching.
All things relating to education, patience, help from superiors.The Hierophant is often considered to be a Guardian Angel.
The Hierophant's purpose is to bring the spiritual down to Earth. Where the High Priestess between her two pillars deals with realms beyond this Earth, the Hierophant (or High Priest) deals with worldly problems. He is well suited to do this because he strives to create harmony and peace in the midst of a crisis. The Hierophant's only problem is that he can be stubborn and hidebound. At his best, he is wise and soothing, at his worst, he is an unbending traditionalist.

The One Time I Took My Shirt Off In Public
So I was cruising around the blogworld, trying to stop watching too much Buffy
, and I came across The Accidental Bitch
's proud declaration that she drank rum from a shovel.
I feel inadequate.
One time someone in a supermarket checkout line said I "looked rough," but that was when I had my nose pierced and it was possible he was being sarcastic. I went from shy high school violet to The One Who Can Hold Her Jack Daniels to being somewhat paranoid about running into one of my students everywhere I go, so the badass factor has never been great.
But two years ago I got--let's say "drunk"--at my school's end-of-year pub crawl. I took the train home with my roommate and her boyfriend, both fellow teachers. We walked the two blocks up to our (dimly lit, suburban) street and he took his shirt off. I complained loudly that it wasn't fair that guys can take their shirts off in public.
He said, "You can take your shirt off."
"No I can't," I said, exasperated. "I'm carrying all this food [from the diner where we had tried to soak up our boozy tummies]!"
"I'll carry it," he said.
My bluff had been called, so I handed him the takeout container of cold greasy fries and took my shirt off. He hooted and my roommate laughed. We only had about half a block to go, it was 2 AM, and our street had one light. I walked home in my bra and jeans.
Oh yeah. I'm bad.
