‘We’re choosing between Sea Vegetable Conspiracy and Rock Solid Panda.’
Clary shook her head. ‘Those are both terrible.’
‘Eric suggested Lawn Chair Crisis.’
‘Maybe Eric should stick to gaming.’
‘But then we’d have to find a new drummer.’
‘Oh, is that what Eric does?…”
― Cassandra Clare, City of Bones
