Subject: Percy Jackson & the Olympians
Title: Touch the Divine
Warnings: Spoilers galore.
Notes: Most songs are in mp3 format, but there might be some in m4a. This is an attempt to make a general book mix - it's not perfect and there was some crack involved....only a little, I promise.

1. New York (like this wasn't obvious)
2. New Jersey (clearly, people are too bored to drive properly)
4. California (lower than I would have expected...)
The top five:
4. Kansas (OH GOD ZACH MOVED TO KANSAS!! OH GOD!!
5. South Dakota
Apparently the top five states know more about safe driving than the bottom five, according to the article.
It makes me wonder if I shouldn't live in a different state....

I was rather appauled when I read this: a kid in Ohio can't take his girfriend who goes to a public high school to the prom because in his school's contract, he is not allowed to engage in any dancing, listening to rock and roll...or basically be a teenager. If he goes, he will get suspended and his diploma will be withheld until he completes his finals.
Really? How low can you go? At least the Amish let their kids be teenagers before they decide whether or not they want to follow the Amish way of life....
On a different note, I had an interview at Chipotle today that I think went pretty well - the manager asked me to come back next week and gave me a free burrito after the interview. I'm also going to contact a lady at a job agency on Monday to see if I can get some clerical experience under my belt before I go to Boston....we'll see how this next week pans out for me.
Wish me luck!

moondog186 totally got me hooked on a webcomic turned manga called "Axis Powers Hetalia" which basically chronicles the events of WWII under the assumption that the countries are actual people and have interactions with each other during the conflict. It's hysterically funny and cute AND while it's history isn't 100% accurate, I'm okay with that.

Anyway, there is a character/country represented called Sealand-kun (or Sea-kun for short) that is (absolutely adorable and I want to huggle him so hard!!!!) actually an unrecognized country/principality. Who knew forts could claim independence after being forgotten by the people that set up the fort in the first place (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Principalit
Great gift idea?
But yes. Sealand is my new favorite micronation/principality and it should be yours too. I mean, look, how cute!!!

I love books, possibly more than I love food, but that's a topic for a different entry.
Anyway, I know in today's world there is often the temptation to attach ourselves to the internet as our sole form of entertaining ourselves, leaving books on shelves to collect dust until some loving bibliophile comes to sweep off the dust, take it off the shelf and read it. It seems that somehow books can get forgotten as a means of passing time, so in the name of progress, I would encourage you to sit down and read a book.
Really and seriously, kids, read a book.
I don't care what book you read, just as long as it interests you. It can even be something that you have read before and want to re-read. And if you don't have a book at home you want to read, go to a library. That's the place where there are thousands upon thousands of books stored up in one place for you to check out and read. Heck, it's free, so why not take advantage?
Support books and reading. I know I do. :D
