How Often Do You Read Books?

  • Every day - I'm a massive bookworm.
  • At least once a week.
  • Only when my TV's broken and the Internet isn't working.
  • Hardly ever - unless it's for school.

O my lord i like i dont even know how but this summer my grandma got a new printer and one day i was printing an essay on Albert Einstein and the paper got jammed. So i reached my hand in but i didnt know that the printer automatically pulls the paper back in so i got my hand stuck in the printer. I was crying and it was horrible. And then like (((((POOF)))) my crush, Jordan Barchett, just appears at the door and he comes in and sees me. The look on his face was so funny that i forgot my hand was in the printer. Finally my adopted father Cane Plemmar got me out and i now have the word "intelligence" tattooed on my hand. Ironic....lol
