I like tea, and puns, and sweaters.

Superstition was when you believed in supernatural powers, I knew. It was crossing your fingers for luck or not stepping on a crack or going to church to pray for your soul.

"Dear diary… Today a pretty lady asked me if I liked to dance, but I managed to play it cool and say no. This has been yet another successful interaction with a member of the fairer sex… I think it’s safe to say that I am an expert at ladies now. - Darcy”
