Great Quotes (And Their Explanations)

Recently, I have been super into quotes, you know, like, MUST GET THG/HP/WHATEVER QUOTES…………NOW!

Like that.

I just want to share some of my favorite quotes, so….here goes.

Harry Potter

“After all this time?”……………”Always.” -Dumbledore and Snape

So sweet. This is the best quote of the books, in my opinion.

“Now I’m going to bed, before either one of you get us killed, or worse, expelled.”…………”She needs to sort out her priorities.” -Ron and Hermione

Ehehe! I love this quote, it’s so funny and represents Ron and Hermione so well.

“I touch………….now!” -Voldemort

I don’t like this for the scene it’s in, but for Ralph Fienne’s and Daniel Radcliffe’s acting, and the importance of this scene.

“Moooooorning….” -George

I love it for the awkward sort of humor, and for the fork sticking out of George’s ear as he says this

“Let’s finish this how we started……..together!” -Harry

Just a great quote. No other words for it.

Hunger Games

“Here to finish me off, sweetheart?” -Peeta

Hands down, the best quote, in my opinion. I don’t have a particular reason, I just like it.

“Remember, we’re madly in love, so it’s okay to kiss me whenever you want.” -Peeta again

I don’t know why Peeta has all the great quotes. He’s just cool that way.

“You’ve got as much charm as a dead slug.” -Haymitch

AHAHAHAHA! So funny. But poor Katniss. She is a dead slug.

“No. Now shut up and eat your pears.” -Katniss

This is the funniest line in the arena, so don’t blame me for liking it.

Maximum Ride:

“The Erasers were bad fliers. And in their minds, they weren’t all kill the mutants, like they usually are. They were like, remember to flap!” -Angel

If you don’t get it, go read the books, as they’re pretty good.


I really could go on and on forever, an ever, and ever. But I can’t in a blog post.

What do you think of some of my personal favorites? Do you have quotes you like? From different series? Tell me!

I Feel Loved Today

Yesterday, I was graced with a blog award, The Fantastic Blog Award, to be exact.


Anyway, the rules seem to have been lost somewhere in the blogosphere, but from Shonti’s blog, whom I received this lovely award from, you answer the questions, write some questions, and post your nominees.

So, here are the questions from Shonti:

1. If you can be any animal what would it be? I would so be a dolphin.

2. If you were in the ultimate game of hide and seek and you could hide anywhere in the USA where would it be? Why? (and before you ask how the seeker would find you, you would have a tracking device strapped onto you)In the crowds of DisneyWorld. This is because even with a tracking device, those crowds are HUGE. So it would be quite hard to find me. I think it’s unfair to give the seeker a tracker, though. They ought to give the hiders a tracker instead because then they could know where the tracker was. If we did play it that way, though, I would so not want to play if I was the seeker.

3. If you could pick one person to spend the whole day with, who would it be? What would you do? Hmm…………because a lot of the people I know would drive me crazy if I was forced had to spend a day with them. I’ll guess I could say my old teacher, Mrs. Abbott, because instead of driving me crazy, I’d drive her crazy πŸ˜€

4. You are being forced to marry a fictional character, who would it be? WHAT?!?!?! Ohhhkayyyyy…I guess . Oh, jeez, I don’t know. Probably someone from Harry Potter, because Peeta’s probably taken already. Probably the same with Gale.

5. What’s your life saying? I do not have a life saying. However, I can make one up on the spot, which is what I intend to do now. It is…. Unicorns and nerdiness are awesome! So be a nerdy unicorn! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Here are my five questions….

  1. What is the name of your bedroom door? Why does it have that name?
  2. What is the most recent WORST book that you read?
  3. Do you enjoy old-fashioned telephones? Why/why not?
  4. If you could only read one book through the whole year, which one would it be?
  5. What is the best part of your blog/your favorite widget?

Now for the nominees.

Dress Up As Junk

You may be wondering about this post’s title. It was inspired by a




It was inspired by a search.

So this post has been devoted on how to dress up like junk.

The first thing that you need are some clothes that you can toss after you dress up like junk.
I suggest the oldest, rattiest thing that you own, or any member of your family owns.

Then, go junk-hunting inside your house. Some good places to looks are:
-Trash and recycling
-miscellaneous drawer or whatever it is
-the garage
-the basement

Then, you’ll want to find some tape. I recommend duct tape or packaging tape.

Now, this is the fun part! You can take all of your junk and tape it to the clothes. Tape it everywhere!

It will look awesomely disgusting when you’re done, hopefully. I have never tried this yet, but sooner or later I will.

Now, put on your junk clothes! Model them, for your friends and family. They’ll love it or be totally grossed out, I’m not sure which.

I should also mention that this would be a great Halloween costume. Or for any dress-up for that matter. However, this may smell after a few days-especially if you have used garbage or recycling in your junk costume. Because of this, I recommend using it as soon as possible.

I hope you enjoy your one-of-a-kind junk costume!

Sorry about the spider interruption, but it is true. Perhaps the spider could go on my junk costume.

Now: If anyone wants to take credit for that search………..

Every single person living on planet Earth right now has something they absolutely, positively, can’t stand. For me, there’s a pretty long list of things, but to save space on this post I won’t list them. If you really must know, ask me in the comments or something. So, here is a handy-dandy re-usable rant that you can easy-peasy print and fill out!

I, __________, do not like _________________. I really don’t like this at all, I mean, seriously. What is the POINT of this? Why was it INVENTED? WHY, WHY, WHY? Do you like it? (ignore all responses)

Well, I don’t and I am SAYING SOMETHING ABOUT IT! (This can be accompanied by you slamming your fist down on some convenient table.) Well, In fact, I am going to DO something about it! (slam hand on table again, but be careful to not hurt your fist.)

Hmm. Have you got any ideas? Well, I’ve got some ideas, I’m leaving to go fix this! AARGH! (if you feel that at this point you must leave, make sure you slam the door loudly!)

(This would be an ideal time to list off all the things that are wrong with the subject of your ranting. Make sure you don’t leave anything out.) So, now do you get it? Why it’s so ABSOLUTELY, TERRIBLY, HORRIBLE?

(You are going to look somewhat deranged now, so lean into your audience’s face and scream, WELL? Interesting results are guranteed!)

So, anyways, that’s why it’s so bad. As in, really bad. Like, maybe even worse than the apopcalypse! Hmm, well, actually, I don’t know. But the point is, it’s BAD. I mean, REALLY BAD.

(Your audience is probably getting sick of you yelling your rant, so when they leave, use this paragraph:) Hey, are you leaving, Why are you leaving? I wasn’t even done yet! I wasn’t even close to done yet! Hey! Come back, ________________-! (Continue to shout the like at the retreating audience until they con’t hear you anymore)

(If your audience isn’t done yet, use this:) So I think it’s really bad. It’s pointless and lame. It’s—-AUGH! You just don’t get it, do you? What’s wrong wit you? How don’t you get it? AUUUGGGHHH! (Now is the time to stomp dramatically from the room and slam the door hard behind you)

Now, you might want to drink some water and rest your vocal cords.


So basically, this is a simple, easy-peasy contest with blogging involved. And since most of you like to blog, you can enter.

Here’s what happens.

  1. I give you a topic.
  2. You write a blog post of 200-700 words(a little more or less is okay)
  3. You send your post to:
  4. You write IJD: uPost (insert topic here) in the subject line.
  5. You put your post, your “blogging alias”, and your blog link(if you have one) in the subject line
  6. You send it. (Obviously.)
  7. I read all the entries and post the winning entry with a link for the winning blogger.
  8. Please do not publish your entry post until one day after the deadline. You can advertise this contest though πŸ™‚

Easy, huh?

This first topic is:………


Anything related to fall, however you define it, can be entered. So if you enter a poem about the colors of fall, that works. A short story that takes place in fall is okay. (However, a) You cannot use either of these as entries and b) If you briefly mention fall, be sure to make it clear that fall is in the post entry.)

The deadline for this uPost is September 17th. And the winning post will be published on September 19th. The next uPost topic will be announced on September 19th at the end of the winning post entry.

Short Story—Octopus And Lunch

I was randomly inspired to write this short story, which is a very grim, very short story.

Once upon a time, there was a little octopus, whose name was Bob.

Bob was a happy octopus.

One day, Bob went to school.

There was a big fish standing there looking sad, so Bob went over to say “Hello”

“Hi,” mumbled the fish in return.

Bob pressed on. “Why are you so sad?”

“It’s, it’s” said the fish, “It’s cause of I don’t have a lunch.”

“Oh, that’s too bad,” Bob said, feeling sorry for the big fish.

Suddenly, the fish’s face lit up.

“What? What?” wondered Bob, trying to imagine what the fish had thought of.

“You can be my lunch!” the fish said, standing up and moving towards Bob.

“Oh, no!” cried Bob, his face rapidly turning to horror. “Not me! You—You wouldn’t want to eat me!”

But the big fish scooped up Bob, who was heavily protesting this, and popped him in his mouth.

“Mmmm. Good combination,” sighed the fish. “Nice and crunchy.”

He licked his lips and swam off to find another unfortunate victim.
