1:30, This Morning

A gang of teens in dark gothic garb, leather jackets, metal everywhere, thick-soled boots, spiked and colored hair, loitered in the back parking lot of the local mall. They leaned on cars, lamp posts, or sat on the curb.

All reading the last Harry Potter novel.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is why these are great books. The defense rests.

Oh Pfffffft.

We wouldn't have gone out for such a stupid reason, but our cats decided to wage WWIII across our bed at 1AM, and by the time we got them seperated and bits of fur cleared away, we were wide awake. So we figured what the heck.
