On telling her how she got her name and what it means, she said, "you never told me that story before.  But you've told me several times that you love me."  Just several times??!


Critiquing her sister's use of words in a story:  "'Vowed to get her revenge.'  That sounds like a Victorian English novel to me."
And then:

"The difference between diaries and journals is that in journals, you have to write about things that actually happened, like scientific discoveries.  In diaries, it is more metaphoric; you write using more metaphors."
