Just saw CorpseBride. It was good. Quite good. But not what I'd hoped for. It never reaches it's full Tim Burton-esque glory. The beginning shines, it's like Tim Burton frolicking in a desolate field full of strange thin flowers. But then once it takes off, he leaves. Other than a few half-hearted bad jokes it lags, and sort of falls.
Anyway though, the last few days helped me remember just how bad I am at sentential logical derivations. I'm off to plug then 'til I puke.

Oh yah. Saw the preview for Harry Potter four. Looks incredible! I just Can't wait!

Poetry 4

All around me
Steel bars construct buildings
concrete, wire, dust, metal
It's cold
frost gathers
but I look up
past my breath
a few trees, their gold arms
leading my eyes to the
massive expanse
the glass bowl
the blue awesomeness
that is the sky
and I become rooted
my hands forever reaching
all around me dies
as I finally live

Dorothy Parker

Song Of Perfect Propriety
Dorothy Parker

Song Of Perfect Propriety
-->Oh, I should like to ride the seas,
A roaring buccaneer;
A cutlass banging at my knees,
A dirk behind my ear.
And when my captives' chains would clank
I'd howl with glee and drink,
And then fling out the quivering plank
And watch the beggars sink.
I'd like to straddle gory decks,
And dig in laden sands,
And know the feel of throbbing necks
Between my knotted hands.
Oh, I should like to strut and curse
Among my blackguard crew....
But I am writing little verse,
As little ladies do.
Oh, I should like to dance and laugh
And pose and preen and sway,
And rip the hearts of men in half,
And toss the bits away.
I'd like to view the reeling years
Through unastonished eyes,
And dip my finger-tips in tears,
And give my smiles for sighs.
I'd stroll beyond the ancient bounds,
And tap at fastened gates,
And hear the prettiest of sound-
The clink of shattered fates.
My slaves I'd like to bind with thongs
That cut and burn and chill....
But I am writing little songs,
As little ladies will.


I submit these three for your collective approval
and a final note:

"I didn't say I needed you to rescue me.
Sit down, shut up
and take the credit when I rescue myself."

Poetry two

It's widdling outside
and the air burnt gasoline
cigarette smoke
I've overfull with chinese food and pink ice cream
the windows are fogged, and the roof leaks onto my jeans
the car squeals when the wheel is turned
a walking cop eyes us
but it's J, it's safe
Neon lights
I can feel my frozen fingers
the tree looks like a man
in a hoodie
ready to smash an axe
through the window to bury
in my chest
so my soul can rise
and be part of this austere
beauty forever

Poetry one

This I offer you
microwave popcorn
half-finished toothpaste in our bathroom
a banged up old coffee pot boiling
some dirty dishes in the sink
a song we love drifting through the walls
books on the table for breakfast
we'll stay up too late
regret it tommorow
for now there's jammies
on our close-clinging bodies
it's cold in here
but the covers are warm
the coffee's good
the popcorn's burnt
hope, normalicy, a life that
makes your soul weep for joy
life, love
not the bad hollywood type
but true

Holy crap

Wow, how long has it been since I've posted? Well, I've moved in with my friend Jared, got a boyfriend, lost him again (he's on a two months ex far away from me. Worst thing is, he's in the bush so it's like he's dropped off the face of the earth) school's started, my sister and two friends got married, and that's pretty much life. I'm also irritated because i still can't collect my one week severance pay from that shitty cafe. And it turns out that not only do the managers hate me, the owner does too. Great. Guess maybe I should've let him into my pants. Ha. Those bitches are perfect for each other...
Anyway, losing that job turned out good, cause I found a job at a military depot that pays me $16 an hour to do an easy job. I'm thinking, as well, next summer, I'll enlist. Either combat engineer, or weapons tech...any thoughts all?
I'm cranky right now, so the throughts are somewhat stunted, but I rented "bride and Prejudice" and it was quite good. Did anyone else notice that NO-ONE kisses at any point in that movie? It's kinda strange...At the pivotal moment, the two main characters share a hug.
Lots of ...huh...
