A. J. Bowen

If journalists ask you again and again about the same bands, you'll end up saying you hate them just because you're so fed up with being asked all those stupid questions.
Billie Joe Armstrong
A classic is a book that doesn't have to be written again.

My husband and I have known each other since kindergarten. I had a crush on him in school, but we never dated.
