There’s this couple at my school that’s “engaged” and he proposed to her at homecoming during party rock anthem and she said yes and i had some questions concerning how they were paying for the wedding if they still ride the school bus home? she also sent me an invite on fb to her wedding and it said “bring food” so looks like it’s a potluck wedding
“Maybe chance is a pretty common thing after all. Those kinds of coincidences are happening all around us, all the time, but most of them don’t attract our attention and we just let them go by. It’s like fireworks in the daytime. You might hear a faint sound, but even if you look up at the sky you can’t see a thing. But if we’re really hoping something may come true it may become visible, like a message rising to the surface. Then we’re able to make it out clearly, decipher what it means. And seeing it before us we’re surprised and wonder at how strange things like this can happen. Even though there’s nothing strange about it.”—Haruki Murakami (via black-wolves)
The math is the math. You can’t lower current (tax) rates and raise revenue unless you’re getting revenue from someplace else. Now, either it’s coming from middle-class families, or poor families, or it’s coming from folks like you and me that can afford to pay a little more.

I think they should. And this is not because I’m interested in punishing the rich. I want everybody to be rich! That’s great! It has to do with the fact that the less I’m asking you or me to do, the more I’m asking somebody who’s in a much tougher position to sacrifice.
“Downey walked over to this random cheeky four-year-old and sat down, introducing himself in character. He talked to Toshi [McWeeny’s oldest son] about how it was to operate the armor, work with Captain America, and fight bad guys. For four or five minutes, Downey stayed in character until finally he explained that there was an urgent matter that needed his attention, and he excused himself. To this day, Toshi is absolutely sure that he met Tony Stark, and that he got to discuss being Iron Man with him. I told Downey how much that simple act meant to the imaginary life of this little boy, and I thanked him.”—HitFix’s Drew McWeeny on the awesomeness of Robert Downey Jr. (via goodmanw)
