the wrist, directs you where to go. So make the best of this test and

the time of your life."
~Green Day, "Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)"
"At the center of the earth, in the parking lot of the 7-Eleven where

blood of the coming spring. Something is shedding its scales, hiding
from the heat of the light or the empty shell on the stage. And cash
is a poor man's money."
