A Red, Red Rose
by Robert Burns

O my luve’s like a red, red rose.
That’s newly sprung in June;
O my luve’s like a melodie
That’s sweetly play’d in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will love thee still, my Dear,
Till a’the seas gang dry.

Till a’ the seas gang dry, my Dear,
And the rocks melt wi’ the sun:
I will luve thee still, my Dear,
While the sands o’life shall run.

And fare thee weel my only Luve!
And fare thee weel a while!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho’ it were ten thousand mile!

back at work.

day is beginning slowly. the apes, the aliens, and the humans here are all working well together today, so much so that I’m not sure which slot I myself fall into. got my candy order finally, it was placed with a fundraising mom who works here so long ago, it was like getting a present (moreso, because I had to pre-pay) peanut butter bears, covered in chocolate, way overpriced, and not something I’d eat now, because of the diet. so, everyone is snacking on them, and I look the hero, just for passing out chocolate on monday.

walked this morning, and came to the conclusion that I need some nice new sneakers.

monitor prime on my computer went south last night, and so I’m now running on my secondary monitor only, a sad little 14″ guy, that’s going to change next weekend, when I do my electronic holiday shopping… a fresh monitor will be my gift to myself, along with shoes. 🙂

sweetalyssm pointed out the chickenhead-mcdonalds connection to me, recently…

Last Tuesday, loving mother Katherine Ortega took her family to McDonalds for a cardboard-flavored meal of mcnuggets. While she was handing them out, she noticed one of them was like no other mcnugget before it. It was smarter, more evolved with a fully developed beak and piercing bread-fried eyes. But this wasn’t a nugget mutation or even some kind of contest to promote chicken heads. Someone just dropped an entire head in with the other McNuggets.

This story is probably a hoax. I want to think it is because I don’t want to imagine what other horrors are falling into the mcnugget fryer if a severed head can make it through their screening process. If that thing got fried and served, chances are we’ve all put things in our mouths that are now either building tiny cities in our stomachs and intestines or laying eggs that will do it later.

flash of thought.

I’m a Charles Addams fan. He drew this cartoon that shows someone feeding pigeons in a park. The pigeons flock around him, landing on him, eventually covering him. In the last panel you see the pigeons flying away leaving behind a skeleton. Imagining a cloud of butterflies fluttering in, landing on a target, and leaving behind only bones….

how nice that 1/12 of us are like this… 😛

Aquarius – Know yourself. Aquarians are known for progressive thinking, but be careful: If you keep your head permanently parked in the clouds, you’ll never get anything accomplished.

*- I think that’s right… to easy to lose self in planning and never get around to doing.

greatest trait – You’re smart, funny and easy to talk to.

*- *blush* you’re just saying that.

look out for -Your tendency to be a major know-it-all. Aquarians are really notorious for loving to give advice but hating to receive it. Next time you feel like telling your best bud what they need to do to really get their life in gear, keep your mouth shut to concentrate on you instead.

*- oh, boy, right on the mark again. yipes.

Uranus, the planet of change and the unexpected.

good day – Wednesday

(I prefer weekends!)

colors – Bright blue, the crystal clear color of sky.

Hmm.. I like cyan, and bright blues, but more of a Green/purple leaner.)

recap

got up late this morning, due to being up much of the night with the sims. building a new home with new folks in it… I’ll probably post a couple of screen-caps in the next few days.

had trouble with the phone this morning… dialed up bellsouth(from across the street), and got the connection fixed…I went out with my brother to see unbreakable again this afternoon and went to big pink for lunch. as he works at a bar, we got the ‘in the business’ discount, 50% off… and the guy tending there gave me a keychain to flash on los olas now, so I can get all sorts of ITB discounts! 🙂 Whee.. I love networking and getting freebie stuff. talking to the love right now, and it sounds like her day was quite a delight, too. I’m really happy that her day went well… she deserves all the greatness she can possibly take.

finished all my books in my list… going to gutenberg or oh, litrix, or memoware… what to read?
