I love yoga, crossfit, and cats. My favorite authors growing up were Roald Dahl, Christopher Pike, Francine Pascal, and one of VC Andrews books. Poetry is cool too. I like Billy Collins, Mary Oliver, and Bukowski. I also own poetry by Elizabeth Bishop and anthologies by Garrison Keillor. I mainly read junk now. Thanks $0.99 Kindle deals.

Dracula - Bram Stoker

I am so annoyed with Bram Stoker's Dracula! If I have to hear about Lucy getting one more blood transfusion. Or if I have to hear about how beautiful she is or how Mina loves her one more time ... omg. 


Can I just appreciate this book solely for its place in history without having to read it? Because I feel like reading it is making me not like the book at all. 


But I laughed at this quote ... "just as a woman does". 


The moment we were alone in the carriage he gave way to a regular fit of hysterics. He has denied to me since that it was hysterics, and insisted that it was only his sense of humor asserting itself under very terrible conditions. He laughed till he cried, and I had to draw down the blinds lest any one should see us and misjudge. And then he cried, till he laughed again, and laughed and cried together, just as a woman does. I tried to be stern with him, as one is to a woman under the circumstances, but it had no effect. Men and women are so different in manifestations of nervous strength or weakness!
