I swear I went to school with 5 Chucks.

Okay, so this post probably won’t make sense to you if you haven’t seen the CW’s Gossip Girl. In fact, you might be a better person if this post doesn’t make sense to you.

Comments on Gawker post about the October 3rd episode of Gossip Girl:

  • “Serena’s a shoo-in for Brown with her recovering alcoholic steez – and if not, there’s always Wesleyan as a safety school.”
  • “I’m also obsessed with Chuck Bass!!!!!!!1!!! He obvs doesn’t want to go to Dartmouth either, he is pure Wesleyan material– I swear I went to school with 5 Chucks.”

You know you love me. XOXO, Alumni Boy

EDIT: For the fans of the show, head over to The World Forgot to download the lovely acappella cover of Fergie’s “Glamorous” that appeared in the beginning of the episode. Flossy flossy!

Harry Potter Withdrawal?

Are you sad? I’m sad. It’s all over. I know how it ends. I know what happens. And granted, while I should be (and am) reading other, arguably more important things, I still don’t feel comfortable with the empty fantasy void that Harry Potter used to fill. Thus, I’ve already turned onto a new series which, conveniently, is being released as a major film later this year (I really like reading a book before the movie comes out because otherwise I can’t get the actors out of my head while reading it…like my Ron looked a helluva lot different than the Rupert Grint, for example).

His Dark Materials is a series that has been recommended to me near since birth because of the incessant insistence of my hometown best friend, who, if I were to rank her obsessions, it would be as follows: 1. Lord of the Rings, 2. Harry Potter, 3. Dragons, 4. Baking cookies, 5. Cigarettes and 6. His Dark Materials. Seeing as I don’t smoke, my choice seems obvious.

His Dark Materials Trilogy – This three-part series includes: The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass. The Golden Compass, starring Nicole Kidman, will be released in December. From the Amazon review: “In the epic trilogy His Dark Materials, Philip Pullman unlocks the door to worlds parallel to our own. Dæmons and winged creatures live side by side with humans, and a mysterious entity called Dust just might have the power to unite the universes–if it isn’t destroyed first.”

But some other books that I recommend for Post-Harry Rehab:

Some others that I’ve not gotten around to reading that I’ve been yelled at about by said friend:

Woo. Soak up the last of summer, guys, because soon it’ll be back to critical theory and chemistry for the lot of ya.
