Author has written 9 stories for Rebecca, Twilight, Maximum Ride, Odyssey, and Office.
Hey Everyone!! Here’s more than you ever wanted to know about me, but I’m telling you anyway!
Name: Max Brown
Favorite color: GREEN!! Or yellow. Or blue. Or brown. Or black. Or, sometimes, when the mood strikes me, red.
Favorite books: Harry Potter books by J. K. Rowling, Twilight books by Stephenie Meyer, The Host by Stephenie Meyer, Maximum Ride books by James Patterson, the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, plus a ton more which I could list here but don’t really have the time or energy to. Or that I am quite as obsessed with.
Favorite movies: Across the Universe, Harry Potter movies (not really, but I like them because of the books), Lord of the Rings movies, Stardust, Notting Hill
Favorite actor: JIM STURGESS!!
Favorite animal: Cats win by a nose over dogs. But hey, I love all animals. Except ostriches. And emus. They’re evil. Trust me. I know from personal experience. Don’t mess with either of those two if you don’t plan on dying prematurely.
Favorite food: CHOCOLATE!! MUST...HAVE...CHOCOLATE!!
Favorite Play: Wicked.
Favorite car: NISSAN AAAAAAAAAALTIMA!! (Don’t ask.) Or a yellow Corvette. Scratch that. Any yellow sportscar will do.
Favorite language: Me gusta el español! (And English. You never know when you’ll need English, like, every day...)
Favorite songs: Anything by the Beatles, anything by the Dixie Chicks, 100 Years by Five for Fighting, Waiting on the World to Change by John Mayer, New Soul by Yael Naim, Mr. Pitiful by Matt Costa, anything from Wicked, Hey There Delilah by the Plain White T’s, Every Time We Touch by Cascada, Because of You by Kelly Clarkson...I could go on...
Instrument: Piano. And kind of voice. Not really. But it helps when I’m writing music.
Hobbies: Hmm...well, I guess, making jewelry. Writing songs. Reading. Studying quantum physics (long story). Going to parties (okay, I guess that’s not a hobby so much as it is something I enjoy). Reading fan fiction (I know, shocker, huh).
Favorite pencil: Dixon Ticonderoga. Soft. (Again, don’t ask.)
Life’s aspiration: To become an exceedingly successful card counter at blackjack (see the movie 21 if you need explanation). I’ve learned how, at least. That’s a start. But if not that, then I want to become a chocolate taste tester for Ghiradelli. Or a teacher. Or a singer-songwriter. Or an actress. Or a writer. Or a scientist. Or a bum who sits in front of a computer all day reading books and fan fiction and is somehow able to make enough money to live comfortably. So clearly, I haven’t given it much thought.
Favorite guy in a book: Fang or Jace. Jace or Fang. Huh. They both totally kick Edward's butt.
SERIOUSLY READ THIS:
In 1986, Dan Harrison was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from Northwestern University. On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The elephant seemed distressed, so Dan approached it very carefully. He got down on one knee and inspected the elephant's foot and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it. As carefully and as gently as he could, Dan worked the wood out with his hunting knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot. The elephant turned to face the man, and with a rather curious look on its face, stared at him for several tense moments. Dan stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled. Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and walked away. Dan never forgot that elephant or the events of that day. Twenty years later, Dan was walking through the Chicago Zoo with his teenaged son. As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to near where Dan and his son Dan Jr. were standing. The large bull elephant stared at Dan, lifted its front foot off the ground, and then put it down. The elephant did that several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man. Remembering the encounter in 1986, Dan couldn't help wondering if this was the same elephant. Dan summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder. The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Dan's legs and slammed him against the railing, killing him instantly. Probably wasn't the same elephant.
I understand that Scissors can beat Paper, and I get how Rock can beat Scissors, but there's no way Paper can beat Rock. Paper is supposed to magically wrap around Rock leaving it immobile? Why the hell can't paper do this to scissors? Screw scissors, why can't paper do this to people? Why aren't sheets of college ruled notebook paper constantly suffocating student as they attempt to take notes in class? I'll tell you why, because paper can't beat anybody, a rock would tear that stuff up in 2 seconds. When I play rock/ paper/ scissors, I always choose rock. Then when somebody claims to have beaten me with their paper I can punch them in the face with my already clenched fist and say, oh dang it, I'm sorry, I thought paper would protect you!

Crazy is when you do or say a completely random thing, like "Do you ever wonder where the eraser bits go?" or having a thumbwar with yourself. If you're crazy, copy this onto your profile.

In case you need further proof that the human ace is doomed because of stupidity, here are some actual instructions on consumer goods.
On a Myer hairdryer: Do not use while sleeping. (Darn, and that's the only time I have to work on my hair!)
On a bag of chips: You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside. (The shoplifter special?)

On Mark's & Spencer Bread Pudding: "Product will be hot after hot after heating." (And you thought??...)
On packaging for a K-Mart iron: "Do not iron clothes on body." (But wouldn't this save me more time?)
On Boot's Children's Cough Medicine: "Do not drive a car or operate machinery after taking this medication." (We could do a lot to reduce the rate of construction accidents if we could just get those five-year-olds with head colds off those forklifts.)
On Nytol Sleep Aid: Warning: May cause drowsiness. (And I'm taking this... because?)
On most brands of Christmas tree lights: "For indoor or outdoor use only." (As opposed to... what?)

On a motorized scooter box: Warning: This vehicle moves. (Thanks Chikara Takashi!)
