Lolita is not about love, because love is always mutual; Lolita is about obsession, which is never, ever love, and Nabokov himself was so disappointed that people did not understand this and take away the right message… For how could anyone call this feeding frenzy of selfishness, devouring, and destruction “love”?
 In her preface to LOLITA, Mary Gaitskill reflects on a review by Vanity Fair’s Gregor von Rezzori in which he calls the novel: “The only convincing love story of the century”  
I love the process of writing and, if I allowed myself, I would write far too much every day.

The Worst Muse hits the nail on the head with YA lit.

My brother (who has never been to Starbucks) works at a pizza place and this teenager with blonde hair in a bun (white girl) was like "I'll have a venti pepperoni pizza please" and my brother was like "what's a venti?" And she was like " umm bigger than a grande and a tall and a short duh" then I budded in and was like "she wants a large" and she loudly said "no I want a venti!" And he was like "we don't have those sizes" so she angrily left, like does she even know about large medium and small?

Oh. My. Word. 

Quick fun fact for everyone: Venti doesn’t translate to “large”. It translates to “20”, which is how many ounces a venti is at Starbucks.

If that was me, I would’ve laughed in her face because she asked for a freakin “20 oz pizza” and tried to order like she was all smart and probably thought she was bilingual or some shit. Oh my god. Ahahaha. Dumb customers are fucking ridiculous! XD

So you know how sixpenceee does these really nifty posts about cool websites? I thought I’d give that a try. Introducing the Social Intelligence Test! From what I can tell, it’s sponsored by Harvard and it’s rather interesting. The basis is you look at pictures of people going through different emotions and decide what emotion they’re feeling. The trick is, you can only see their eyes.

How well can you read people? I never thought I was good at it, but I scored rather high on this test. It was a very interesting experience! I highly recommend taking this!
