Whew! I almost forgot to post today! I've been so wrapped up in The Host (a novel by Stephenie Meyer that I never thought I would read) recently that I haven't really thought about anything else. My best friend and her mom convinced me to read it. I read all 604 pages PLUS the bonus chapter in two days. It was awesome! I totally want to see the movie now. AND I think The Host is going to become a trilogy with the two sequels coming out soon.
But now I'm off topic. Anyway . . .
My favorite television program, without a doubt, is "Modern Family." My other two close favorite are "The Big Bang Theory" and "Go On," but "Modern Family" is my favorite. I love the characters (especially Luke, Phil, and Gloria), the humor, and the writing. We even have a "Modern Family Quote-of-the-Day Calendar." Some of my favorite quotes are below:
Alex: It's like scrabble with Haley. After awhile you're just playing against yourself.
(Haley is the dumbest character in the show. Your stereo-typical teenage girl).
Haley: "Why are you guys yelling at us? We were way upstairs. Just text me."
Jay: "When I heard Manny wanted to fence, I was, like, sure. Uncoordinated kid, lethal weapon. How can this go wrong?"
Phil: So Laura’s trying to test me? Bring it on. I’ve been tested my entire life. They could never find anything.
Phil: I’ll admit it. I’m turned on by powerful women. Michelle Obama, Oprah, Condolezza Rice, Serena Williams… Wait a minute.
Phil: The iPad comes out on my actual birthday. It’s like Steve Jobs and God got together to say, “We love you, Phil.
Phil: I’m cool dad, that’s my thang. I’m hip, I surf the web, I text. LOL: laugh out loud, OMG: oh my god, WTF: why the face?
Phil: Trust me, I had plenty of fun in my time. Then, I met your mom.
(Claire, Phil's wife, is suuuuuuuuuuper uptight).
Phil: A Realtor's just a ninja in a blazer. The average burglar breaks in and leaves clues everywhere. But not me. I'm completely clueless.
Phil: Claire likes to say, "You can be part of the problem or part of the solution." But I happen to believe you can be both.
Phil: You never want your kids to see you scared. You want to be that rock that they grab hold of in a stormy sea. Actually, a rock would sink. So a floating rock. Let's start over. It's windy and you have a lot of papers . . .
YOU NEED TO WATCH THIS SHOW!!!! :D

The 30-Day Blogging Challenge: Day 4 A Favorite Television Program
I am a 17-year-old homeschooler, author, daydreamer, voracious reader, introvert, feminist, klutz, fangirl, and overuser of tape. I love the impossible (which might explain my obsessions with fantasy novels and Harry Potter) but I dip into the real world . . . occasionally. I tend to get overly emotional over my OTPs and eat sushi or listen to Taylor Swift to soothe the pain. If all else fails, reruns of “Doctor Who” or “Supernatural” is sure to help. I’m a big fan of mismatched socks, Cheez-Its, and bittersweet endings. I believe anything Rainbow Rowell, Felicia Day, or Lin-Manuel Miranda touches turns to gold. If you want to win the way to my heart, help me adopt a baby elephant. Or a llama. Or both. I write to survive and will often yell at my characters if they aren’t behaving, which is always. It doesn’t usually help. I am a contributor to the "Fauxpocalypse" anthology. You can follow me on Twitter at @Magic_Violinist.
