Question Tuesday: In which I discuss the purpose of metaphors, cheesy jokes, slaying, the hypothesized butt brains of dinosaurs, the etymology of the word orange, my deleted cameo in The Fault in Our Stars, and my favorite Harry Potter book.
Love John Green. And this video. Even though today is Wednesday.

I already downloaded my copy and can’t wait to watch with Casey after I forced him to read the book.

An Evening Conversation
Perfect timing as summer is winding down and kids head back to school… I wish it wasn’t gone so quicly.
I realized last night that I have to quit focusing on how many days until I move to D.C. and instead shift my perspective so that I’m considering how many days I have left in my hometown.
I’d hate for this year to end, only to regret that I didn’t take these 300+ days to enjoy the city I love. As much as I’m ready for a change - ready to be closer to Casey - Atlanta is home. I’ve always loved the skyline. I love that we have OTP v. ITP culture. I appreciate the ability to be close enough to drive to a few states for a short weekend. I like all of our weird neighborhoods: Poncey-Highlands, EAV, Midtown, Cabbagetown. I have a history and memories for almost every landmark. For years I’ve campaigned with friends as to why ATL is awesome and why I love it so dearly. Why shouldn’t I do the same for myself? Just because it’s time for me to try something different doesn’t mean I can’t always love home. Or should be so focused on the future that I forget about the present.
I’ve created my bucket list and am changing my perspective to appreciate the last days of ATL. Follow the journey, or even join me! #lastdaysofATL
This set includes:
- Six CDs of John Green reading The Fault in Our Stars, because his voice perfectly emulates that of a 16 year old girl.
- A wristband for The Hectic Glow, a band so beautifully underground that they don’t even exist. (bright orange, different from those received in 1st and 2nd edition box sets)
- An awesome concert ticket for The Hectic Glow, a concert so epic that it never technically occurred.
- Four TFiOS-themed postcards designed by nerdfighters that you can send to your friend to brag that you own the John Green-narrated audiobook and they don’t.
- Three TFiOS-themed stickers, designed by the ever-talented Risa Rodil.
- A set of four TFiOS buttons, also designed by Risa (did we mention how talented she is?)
- Also, all 3,000 copies are–get this–UNSIGNED.
Seriously wondering why I don’t need this…
