Day 13: A guilty pleasure.

Not even good magazines, like Star Wars Insider. Junk magazines.
See, the people that had our house before we moved in had a hair salon. And magazine companies give their extra magazines to hair salons. So we get tons of free magazines. And I read them:
We get(for free):

Real Simple
Us Weekly
Cosmopolitan(I don't read this one. XP)
Elle(I don't read this one)
Teen Vogue
Glamour(I don't read this one either)
All You
Weight Watchers
Modern Bride
In Style
Food-Martha Stewart
All You
All kinds of random magazines that we only get once.

We have no subscription to any magazines except Linux Journal(for my dad). I wonder when they will stop? Will they?

It's very irregular. We used to get People every week, but now we get it rarely. We stopped getting Real Simple for about a year, but now we get it again. I love Real Simple! :D Oh, we used to get Good Housekeeping and Family Fun. We don't get those anymore. I miss them! :'(

It's fun getting at least something in the mail every day, And I take it up to my room and read when I have a spare moment. And then I procrastinate throwing it away. I never reread them because we get something else every day. I have literally a big ol laundry basket in my room full of procrastinated, beat up US Weeklys. I should go throw them out.

I see the magazine aisles in the store and I'm like, people pay money for these? I just threw out a ton after tripping over them!


PS. Alex-Ha! Hopefully your bride lets you choose the song.


  1. Wow, those are alot of magazines!! LOL! I read what my parents call teeny-bopper magazines every summer when I go to orchestra camp. My dad buys them for's a tradition! LOL!

  2. I am the EXACT same way, Amaranthine. Magazines are my weakness.

    I was cleaning out my room about a month ago and came across 15-20 junk magazines we got in the mail that I had stashed away and never had thrown out.

    I keep them, and read them even if it's something boring. I might even like reading magazines more then books. =P

  3. Lol!! The only magazine i read is Seventeen.

  4. LOL! Yeah, I get the feeling that MY wants will get shuffled into the background. :D

  5. I hardly EVER read magazines. I am asking for a subscription to SW Insider for my birthday, though.....

  6. I love junk magazines! Even though I hardly get to read them. When we were taking care of this lady's house for her while she was on vacation this summer, she let us swim in her pool, and she left us a TON of magazines.

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO

love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

Howl's Moving Castle book analysis

“I feel ill. I'm going to bed, where I may die.”
― Howl, upon having a cold. I've decided to call them "book analysis" because they're not really reviews that tell you how much I liked the book, rather,  me taking the book apart and looking at different aspects of it for my own entertainment. Read on. Also, read Howl's Moving Castle.

This is the original cover of Howl's Moving Castle and I have got to say it is the UGLIEST thing I have ever seen. I like the new one much better.


First of all, I should point out that Howl's Moving Castle is a children's book. However, I like to hold all books I read to the same standard, after all, they're written by adults.

I had biased expectations of Howl's Moving Castle from the start, because I kept hearing from several sources how amazing, how fantastic, how hilarious and how romantic the book was, and hearing the perfectly gorgeous soundtrack by Joe Hizazi(something or other.)

Howl's Movi…
