Okay, so there was something I wanted to actually contribute today, and I should have written it down earlier, because now I've forgotten it.
I did have a great time chatting with a guy I know last night, the man just cracked me UP. Funny funny guy, I'm looking forward to speaking with him again. He and I have decided that we would have a smashingly good time together should we ever go out and party.
Speaking of parties, I'm going to one tonight. A gentleman that I work with invited me over to hang out and have a good time. Needless to say, I've been crushing on this guy for some time. Tall, dark hair, liquid brown eyes, fantastic smile. Okay, you chocolate puddles get up! It's just a party for chrissake! Anyway, I'm getting into the PISSED OFF phase of this stupid break-up, so I think I'm coming along fine.
I had more to say than I thought I did! YAY!
Oh and I've been a total goof on twitter, so really guys, just ignore any nonsense I type in there! Onwards and Upwards ...
While I thought that I was learning how to live, I have been learning how to die.
Leonardo da Vinci
What do you want done with your body after you die?
(eks LEE-bris, LI-)
1. From the library of (a phrase inscribed in a book followed by the name of the book owner).
2. A bookplate.
From Latin ex libris (from the books), from ex- (from) + liber (book).
"I found a copy of Mein Kampf with Hitler's ex libris bookplate."
Still plugging away at the same old stuff.
Tonight is: Legend of the Seeker. I've been pretty disappointed, nothing has recorded for me for two days. I work 3pm - 11pm so I really rely on my DVR for primetime programming. I reset it, so I'm crossing my fingers in the hopes that I don't miss my show tonight. I do love a good swashbuckling adventure!
Now Sleeps the Crimson Petal
NOW sleeps the crimson petal, now the white;
Nor waves the cypress in the palace walk;
Nor winks the gold fin in the porphyry font.
The firefly wakens; waken thou with me.
Now droops the milk-white peacock like a ghost,
And like a ghost she glimmers on to me.
Now lies the Earth all Danaë to the stars,
And all thy heart lies open unto me.
Now slides the silent meteor on, and leaves
A shining furrow, as thy thoughts in me.
Now folds the lily all her sweetness up,
And slips into the bosom of the lake.
So fold thyself, my dearest, thou, and slip
Into my bosom and be lost in me.
Alfred, Lord Tennyson
