Cheese on the Moon

Tell It Write

Today is the absolute worst day of the calendar year: the 14th of February.

Now I’m not psychic, but I know what you’re thinking. Valentine’s day – this guy is just a misfit who doesn’t seem to be able to find love. There’s a girl he’s crushing on and he simply can’t do something about it. Yes, well, while that might be partially true, the problem this year isn’t that I can’t do something about it, it’s because I did.

There are a lot of nobodies at school, but I’m glad to say I’m not one of them. The catch is I’m not one of the jocks either.

Poetry to me Is the exact moment In the time-space continuum, When two strangers' glances Meet And everlasting love is manifested Between unsuspecting souls.

Johnny Kitt Episode 5: Shake and Rattle and Roll

A shrill scream ripped through the air and Johnny ran into the bathroom of the cheap hotel. No sooner had he opened the door than Johnny rushed out again, groaning with his face warming up.
