Either

"You are about to read Italo Calvino's new novel, If on winter's night a traveler."
If on winter's night a traveler, Italo Calvino

or

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only."
A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens

But there are others are very notable as well!

✂ FRIENDS CUT

One of my entries warned about this, and I quote:

I never really wanted to do one, but my f-list is getting pretty large. There are some people on there who I swear have been there for a few years or so and I'm thinking, "Who are you again?" If you're worried seeing this, you're probably actually the one who has least to worry about! It's really just people who I never got to know as well as the people who have already cut me from their own f-lists. Even if we talked more in the past than we do now, you're still going to stay. I'm just trying to reorganize my lj.

That's basically the gist of it! If you're pretty new to my f-list, you're safe too btw. Though if you feel like I wrongfully cut you, please don't hesitate to tell me. I probably made a mistake. Derp.

I'd also like to make this a reverse friends cut. I don't think you need my permission to cut me since it's your journal, but hey, if you've been thinking about it and you think it's for the best, go on right ahead.

Officially calling a HIATUS.

So, I've been a pretty bad friend lately because I've been so busy that I haven't really talked with you guys as much as I did before, and that makes me pretty sad. Coming up though-tomorrow actually-I have a school-sponsored four-day retreat so I'll be gone from the computer anyways. And I don't see my schedule getting any less demanding once I come back, so it's for the best.

Buuuuuuut this is also a SPAM ME POST. Yup, feel free to spam this to your heart's content; I've even made it public. Make me come back from my retreat with an exploding inbox. ;)

'Til then!

Also if you're interested, I changed my layout (with a new FO banner!) and my profile. I love moirae for putting in a shameless plug for picnik.com, believe me.

And I'll reply to my trick-or-treat things when I get back.
