On another note, the weather is playing with my mind. One day it's freezing, the next I barely need a jacket. What's going on? Though I can't really complain...I'll take any snippet of warmer weather I can get.

people always clap for the wrong things

Hands down, one of my favorite books. The Catcher in the Rye is packed with provoking passages, tragic thoughts, and iconic imagery. Holden Caulfield is so real, there really is no other way to put it. Some favorite words from the novel:

"People never notice anything."
"It's terrible to be just in your pajamas when something like that happens."
"If somebody knows quite a lot about things, it takes you quite a while to find out whether they're really stupid or not."
"Then she left. The navy guy and I told each other we were glad to've met each other. Which always kills me. I'm always saying, "Glad to've met you" to somebody I'm not at all glad I met. If you want to stay alive, you have to say that stuff though."
"The mark of the immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of the mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one."

Antonio Berardi designs some amazing clothes...and shoes. His collections are right up my alley, though I'm not sure I could walk in those boots!
