Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.

There are six things very wrong with my life:

  1. I have one of those under-the-skin spots that will never come to a head but lurk in a red way for the next two years.

  2. It is on my nose.

  3. I have a three-year-old sister who may have peed somewhere in my room.

  4. In fourteen days the summer hols will be over and then it will be back to Stalag 14 and Oberführer Frau Simpson and her bunch of sadistic "teachers."

  5. I am very ugly and need to go into an ugly home.

  6. I went to a party dressed as a stuffed olive.

           --Louise Rennison, Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging: Confessions of Georgia Nicolson (HarperCollins, 2000)
