ஜ~§The Question Of The Day§~ஜ


if you could have a superpower, what would it be and how would you use it?

My BF (? ... still don't know about that, as I still haven't heard from him!) asked me this one of the last few times we talked. It was difficult for me to answer, I've always had an afinity for water though, so I thought I'd like to have the power to control water, and possibly recruit assistance from sea creatures. That would be cool.

ஜ~§Poem Of The Day§~ஜ


"My Heart Is Heavy"

My heart is heavy with many a song
Like ripe fruit bearing down the tree,
But I can never give you one --
My songs do not belong to me.

Yet in the evening, in the dusk
When moths go to and fro,
In the gray hour if the fruit has fallen,
Take it, no one will know.

Sarah Teasdale

Well, there you go! I had always known of subliminal but had never stopped to consider the existence of liminal. I wonder if there is a superliminal?

YAY! for yo and your main squeeze!

As for "LIM-uh-nl," a friend of mine unkindly described me as that once. Make that ex-friend. I can laugh about it now, but at the time: OUCH!

For your information, I do not think that the sky is about to fall everyday. Wednesdays and Sundays only.
I don't blame you with the TV thing, I watched "Don't forget the lyrics" last night. With no sense of irony.
