This is the life.

I know that in the morning now. I’ll see us in the light upon your ear. Althought I’m broken. My heart’s untamed still…

Good Vibes HERE

If you’ve ever wondered when Jupiter will next be aligned with Mars, Van Cleef & Arpels has a watch that will tell you. Its new Midnight Planetarium Poetic Complication watch has six rotating disks, each bearing a tiny sphere representing one of the six planets visible with the naked eye.

The disks rotate at different speeds so that each sphere makes one revolution around the dial in the time it takes the actual planet it represents – Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter or Saturn – to orbit the sun.  Mercury in 88 days, Venus in 224, Earth in a year, Mars in 687 days, Jupiter in 12 years and Saturn in 29. It’s a very complex watch and a true display of supreme watchmaking. Time is indicated by a shooting-star symbol rotating around the dial’s circumference. Leveraging the brand’s specialty in jewelry, each of the planets are represented by precious and semi-precious stones, ranging from red jasper to serpentine and turquoise. An even more extravagant edition is available with baguette-cut diamonds set into the bezel.

The planet module was designed by Christian van der Klaauw, renowned for his movements featuring astronomical indications. The movement is self-winding and contains 396 components.  The case is 44 mm in diameter and made of rose gold. The dial is made of aventurine and the planets of semiprecious stones.  Price: about $245,000; a diamond-set version will be about $330,000.

I was reading this book one day (and laughing my ass off while doing so), and coincidentally, my older sister who frequently shops at the The Book Depository informed me that they had a bookmarks competition this year; and I just knew that this quote would make a perfect bookmark! Luckily, The Book Depository and 3,000+ people on Facebook think so too, and it is now one of the winning entries of the contest! This was really fun to make. :)

Man, don’t SAT at me. Here’s what’s up. The Ronan you know is no more. He’s having a coming-of-age moment. A - a - Bildungsroman. Goddamn me! SAT that, Dick-dick-dick.

Adam and Ronan Fighting

In The Raven Boys and The Dream Thieves, Gansey mentions several times about Ronan and Adam fighting or, not being in a fight at the moment, but I don’t ever recall any chapters from either Adam’s or Ronan’s points of view, where…

I agree, but when Ronan drove Adam to his house, Adam said like it was bearable to be with Ronan bc they hadn’t had a fight at the moment.

Well, it’s described as being a comfortable arrangement, not bearable, but I do think this is still referring to the tenseness. Ronan doesn’t step in it during that scene the way he usually does with Adam, and they’re both too thrown for a loop to really do anything but enjoy each other’s presence for once.
