 anna saw yo-yo ma at a bar.  all of her friends were like, "that's not yo-yo ma," but she kept looking at him and being like, "i'm pretty sure that's yo-yo ma," and her friends were like, "no, it's definitely not yo-yo ma," but she was pretty sure so she went up to him and was like, "excuse me.......... do you play the cello?"

(strokes marvin's back with his tail high in the air) i wish cats were like dogs and showed a little less anus

why am i playing with two rain mans


trick or treated down abbott boulevard

checked into astoria


watched jennifer lawrence's twin gemma chan in crazy rich asians it's very disco cleopatra, but in a good way and the taiwan dispatch of lwtwjo

taiwan was the fastest growing economy in asia last year and is the world's key manufacturer of semiconducters which are used absolutely everywhere in products from cars to sex toys.  so if the next time that you fire up a buttplug that has a hundred thousand times more computing power than the apollo moon mission, make sure you say, "thanks taiwan!"

read the mesoamerican chronology entry.  jaguar-worship began before christ.  they illuminated codexes, potted potbelly sculptures (barrigones)

the city-state of teotihuacan dominated the valley of mexico until the early 8th century

the olmec culture represents a milestone of mesoamerican history..state organization, the development of the 260-day ritual calendar and the 365-day secular calendar, the first writing system, and urban planning

many of the olmec figurines and sculptures contain representations of the were-jaguar

maize, beans, and squash, the mesoamerican agricultural trinity

base 20 number system

the use of nails in architecture

quetzalcoatl, the plumed serpent

the aztec empire dominated central mexico for close to a century before the spanish conquest

read harper lee's to kill a mockingbird.  atticus feels too shrewd for his time.  now on broadway


the radley place fascinated dill.  in spite of our warnings and explanations it drew him as the moon draws water

angel-bright, life-in-death; get off the road, don't suck my breath

foot-washers believe anything that's pleasure is a sin

atticus said naming people after confederate generals made slow steady drinkers

i was becoming nervous.  atticus seemed to know what he was doing--but it seemed to me that he'd gone frog-sticking without a light.  never, never, never, on cross-examination ask a witness a question you don't already know the answer to, was a tenet i absorbed with my baby food

a jury never looks at a defendant it has convicted

"when a man says he's gonna get you, looks like he means it."
"he meant it when he said it," said atticus.  "jem, see if you can stand in bob ewell's shoes a minute.  i destroyed his last shred of credibility at that trial, if he had any to begin with.  the man had to have some kind of comeback, his kind always does.  so if spitting in my face and threatening me saved mayella ewell one extra beating, that's something i'll gladly take.  he had to take it out on somebody and i'd rather it be me than that houseful of children out there.  you understand?"
jem nodded

scout, i think i'm beginning to understand something.  i think i'm beginning to understand why boo radley's stayed shut up in the house all the's because he wants to stay inside
