Eyes

There’s more than meets the eye
Invisible to the naked eye
I can do that with my eyes closed

Gourmet Makes

Claire makes Lucky Charms and it turns out cereal is extremely hard to make at home, which is maybe why General Mills can charge us $4 for a twelve-ounce box of air and sugar.

“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are,” Dumbledore says, “far more than our abilities.”

The Shelf

ALCOTT: Oh gosh, well I’m just awfully glad that that we’re all here together. I do so wish we could all get along.

Spend It Now

Still waters run deep, my dear, there’s never smoke without fire.”
