My grandmother just got back from Brasil today, and she finally got the first Harry Potter book. She had gone looking for it at the mall and couldn’t find it at the book store, but as it turned out, her sister had a few of the books all along. Her sister, who I call Aunt Selma, has been buying the series and hasn’t read any yet because she wants to have them all before she starts reading them. So she let my grandmother bring the sorcerer’s stone and the chamber of secrets with her. I’m so excited.
I think i'm going to dust mine off and read along with her so I can help her if she gets confused by anything or forgets who certain characters are. She's adorable. She told me on the phone just now that she came up with the idea of writing down the name of every character as she reads in case she forgets who's who.
moment of silence for those people who followed me since i started this blog
they have seen things i am not proud of
"Claiming there is no other life in the universe is like scooping up some water, looking at the cup and claiming there are no whales in the ocean."
Arturo is a 29-year-old male polar bear currently living in Argentina’s Mendoza Zoo. He is suffering in 40C (104F) heat in an enclosure that has just 20 inches of water for him to swim in and has as a consequence been displaying worrying behavior.
Please sign this petition or at least spread the word in order to have Arturo transferred to a zoo in Canada which has better facilities for an animal that is used to polar conditions.

I love it when I hear my dogs fart. It’s strangely adorable.
