A couple weeks ago I went to the zoo and I saw three peacocks and two of them were white and one of them squawked and it sounded startlingly similar to my own bird call.
As I’m reading books, if a certain phrase or sentence stands out to me, for whatever reason, I’ll jot them down in a notebook. Here are some.
” “Don’t eat things you find, Scout.” ”
Spoken by Jem to Scout, in To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, 1960.
” “Flamingoes and mustard both bite. And the moral of that is: ‘birds of a feather flock together’. ”
–“Only, mustard isn’t a bird.”
The Queen of Hearts and Alice, on page 135 of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll, 1865.
“Boys are trying enough to human patience, goodness knows, but girls are infinitely more so, especially to nervous gentlemen with tyrannical tempers.”
page 73, Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, 1868.
” “May the most you hope for be the least you get.” ”
Spoken by the father, on page 134 of Total Constant Order, by Crissa-Jean Chappell, 2007.
” “But there are always flies and itches. That’s why life is difficult to live.” ”
Spoken by Tarrou on page 241 of The Plague, by Albert Camus, 1948.
” “New knowledge is the most valuable commodity on earth. The more we have to work with, the richer we become.” ”
Spoken by Dr. Asa Breed on page 41 of Cat’s Cradle, by Kurt Vonnegut, 1963.
“There comes a time when we realise that our parents cannot save themselves or save us, that everyone who wades through time eventually gets dragged out to sea by the undertow–that, in short, we are all going.”
Page 120 of Looking for Alaska, by John Green, 2005.
Have a lovely day 🙂

Went into hiding, though not a felon
Just a bit of paint
Never called him a saint
Permanent aerosol letters spellin’
Every time I see this photo of myself, I laugh so hard.
Just an ordinary teenager trawling the internet for indie or just sick music. New talent and music reviews.
I'm not cool, I'm gay. There's a huge difference.

I'm a professional scavenger making a living selling curbside garbage. This blog details my finds and sales. It also acts as an archive for things beautiful and historic that would otherwise have been destroyed.
To live would be an awfully big adventure!

We're not hoarding, we're collecting!
See a penny, pick it up...
It starts with a picture and it sits in your frame
A life in a photobooth.
