OK, I'm super duper bored (and done my homework, yay!) and so I'm going to do that music meme where I post a line from 20 of my favorite songs and then you guys all guess which songs they are, with NO googling allowed!! Cheaterpants suck.  I should make that into a shirt and then give it to Mons, he uses the word Cheaterpants all the time.  Anyways, so they suck.  You can listen to the song if you think you have it to make get the idea.

1.  "My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me, so won't you kill me so I die happy?"  Hands Down - Dashboard Confessional  Guessed by


2.  "And I cannot guess what we'll discover
When we turn the dirt with our palms cupped like shovels
But I know our filthy hands can wash one another’s
And not one speck will remain"  Soul Meets Body - Death Cab for Cutie  Guessed by monotono

3.  "Oh ladies, pleasant and demure
Sallow-cheeked and sure
I can see your undies"

4.  "Frontin' niggas give me hee-bee-gee-bees
So while you're imitating Al Capone
I'll be Nina Simone
And defacating on your microphone."

5.  "Ouch I have lost myself again
Lost myself and I am nowhere to be found"  Breathe Me - Sia  Guessed by senatorsfan

6.  "Daydreaming,
Bed scenes in... the corner cafe
And then I'm left in bits recovering tectonic... tremblings
You get me every time."

7.  "And up above us all
Leaning into sky
Our golden business boy
Will watch the North End die
And sing, “I love this town”
Then let his arcing wrecking ball proclaim
I hate Winnipeg"  One Great City! - The Weakerthans   Guessed bytimemachine

8.  "The glove box light shines bright enough to see.
You read the map like you were reading poetry."

9.  "There was milk and toast and honey and a bowl of oranges, too
And the sun poured in like butterscotch and stuck to all my senses"

10.  "You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue"  Your Song - Elton John/Moulin Rouge Soundtrack  Guessed by both hedgie125and timemachine

11.  "And we were done, done, done
with all the fuck, fuck, fuckin' around."

12.  "When everything seems like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know your alive "  Iris - Goo Goo Dolls  Guessed by monotono

13.  "O Fortuna velut luna statu variabilis, semper crescis aut decrescis;  vita detestabilis nunc obdurat  et tunc curat ludo mentis aciem, egestatem, potestatem dissolvit ut glaciem."  O Fortuna - Orff  Guessed by both (again) hedgie125and timemachine

14.  "I am thinking it's a sign that the freckles
In our eyes are mirror images and when
We kiss they're perfectly aligned"  Such Great Heights - The Postal Service  Guessed by therevsoup

15.  "That stuff on the radio blocked the transmission
Same beat, same lyrics, same song
I listen to my old school tapes to get it on"
I said "word up girl? i know what you mean
It seems we're all trapped in the glitz and the gleam
The truth's just hidden for now, so don't sweat it
So here's a cassette" and then i jetted!"

16.  "Too bad but it's the life you lead
You're so ahead of yourself
That you forgot what you need"

17.  "Well I don't really care what people say
I don't really watch what dem want do
Still I got to stick to my girls like glue"  Like GLue - Sean Paul  Guessed by monotono

18.  "God speed all the bakers at dawn may they all cut their thumbs,
And bleed into their buns 'till they melt away."  New Slang - The Shins  Guessed by therevsoup

19.  "Well I can't stop talking for fear of listening to unwelcome sound
and you haven't called me in weeks and honestly it's bringing me down"

sparkled with broken glass."  Left and Leaving - The Weakerthans  Guessed by tycho

Honestly I think I made them too easy (if you know the songs they'll be quite obvious methinks) oh well, we'll see if any of you like the same music as I do, or not!! :P  I tried to get a very wide sample of my tastes, so there's a bit of everything! Ok Go! (Bad music reference intended... :P)

I JUST finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.  I loved loved loved loved it!  I wanted to write a long and emotionally detailed post about it, but I haven't digested it all yet.  I can't believe it's the end!!!  I need to go back and read them all over again, like, right now!  Seriously. I really have nothing else that I can coherently talk about it right now, but I adored every single minute of this book, it was absolutely my favorite of the series (although that could be because I haven't read some of them in years and my mind is fuzzy on the details).  I was in the middle of reading Suite Francais when Harry Potter was released (and you better believe I went there at midnight), but I don't think I'll be able to go back to reading other novels for a little bit, I have to let this one percolate.

No one look at the comments if they don't want spoilers, since I avoided any major plot points and things I am dying to say about how I reacted in the post.   On that note, what did you all think!!!??

Writer's Block: Words that you love and hate

What are your favorite and least favorite words? Any reasons why?  

My favorite two words are immaculate, and resplendant.  Immaculate because I think it is the most pure and beautiful word in existence, and it conjures up so many wonderful, white, soft images for me.  Resplendant, because when I was younger, a girl who I "fell in love with", more as a friend (but it was instantaneous and life-altering) wrote me a poem where she referred to me as a resplendant butterfly.  It melted my heart, and it felt like she was the same person as love at first sight, but better than romantic love, because it was a friendship and infatuation all combined into one.  I don't believe I have a least favorite word, because I think that all words have value.

Fridge Magnet Poems

I apologize for the friend's page onslaught, but I'm procrastinating from applying on jobs for a bit. Instead of that, I wrote a series of season poems in the fridge magnets. here they are, and keep in mind, there was an extremely slim selection of words!!!

Season Cycle
day. month. year.

she will feel every storm
as a grey squirrel &
a cold buttery pumpkin cry

always so serious
he would remember their full love

see dark ice sing between night snow
that is almost light.
warm winter shell of a child
live. spin. fly. snap.
only they never grow

blue sky shines beneath flower petals
while womanly fire sun
makes a morning dream bloom

if we melt popsicle colors
into shivering sizzling rain
another summer cloud
could dance through you

Can you guys decide which pertains to which season?? :) I had fun, I should make random magnet poetry more often!

1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle

4. For every question, type the song that's play
ing 5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool...

Opening Credits: “Wake Up” – Alanis Morrisette “'Cause it's easy not to, So much easier not to, And what goes around never comes around to you, To you to you to you to you to you...There's no love no money no thrill anymore. There's an apprehensive naked little trembling boy with his head in his hands, and there's an underestimated and impatient little girl raising her hand.”

Waking Up: “Universally Speaking” – Red Hot Chili Peppers “Nothing better the feeling is so fine, simply put I saw your love stream flow…universally speaking I win in the long run”

First Day of School: “Walkin’ on the Sun” – Smashmouth “It's just like any fad it retracts before impact, and just like fashion is a passion for the with it and hip. If ya got the goods, they'll come and buy it just to stay in the clique.”

Falling in Love: “We Laugh Indoors” – Death Cab for Cutie “So I breed thicker skin and let my lustrous coat fill in and I'll never admit I loved you Guinevere.”

Fight Song: “32 Flavors” – Ani DiFranco “Squint your eyes and look closer, I’m not between you and your ambition, I am a poster with no poster, I am 32 flavors and then some…Someday you’re gonna get hungry and eat most of the words you just said.”

I'm so happy. So so so so so so happy. I'm not planning on explaining why because I barely even get it. The jist is that I haven't smiled this much in longer than I can remember, and nothing and no one has made me feel this full of happiness, excitement and feel this content in ages. I'm exhausted, and can barely type, but this had to be recorded as the night that I smiled more than I have in months. I love everything, and everyone. Thank you for making me so happy and so smiley!! xoxoxox

Hehehe, cutest urge EVAR!

My sister: What's it like outside?
Me: It's nice, I just went out in my sweater and vest and these pants and I was fine.
Sister: Your sweater-vest??? You don't have a sweater-vest!! Oh....
Me: Yeah, cause that would be the ultimate combination of nerd and geek ever, sweater-vest and Final Fantasy!
Sister: I'm asking because I just had the urge to.. *YAWN*
Me: The urge to what?
Sister: I just had the urge to go out and get a helium ballon and sing.
Me: That's the cutest urge EVER!!!! We should totally go out and do that!
Sister: *holding up her hand in a fake microphone and ballon* "At first I was afraid...I was petrified!! Dunno how I ever lived without you by my side...." *shuffles away*

She rocks so much. hehe, also, she woke up this morning and stumbled into the living room and whispered in a creepy quiet voice "I hate the smell of our fridge..." hahaha. AWESOME. I love her.
