2008 Presidential Candidate Matching Quiz

What can I say; I'm a huge liberal. But, practically speaking, my votes for Obama. First and foremost, just because I'm very leftist, doesn't mean we don't need someone the entire country can relate to (in terms of policy). Having listened to the man speak in person was amazing; shaking his hand was even better. Things might be different had I thought Kucinich stood a fighting chance. And I know nothing about Gravel, aside from the fact that ABC didn't invite him or Dennis to the debate.

Once In A While by Charles Bukowski [18 Dec 2007|01:09pm]
[ mood | hopeful ]

it is only
once in a while
that you see
someone whose
and prescence
matches yours
at that

and then
usually it's
a stranger.

it was 3 or 4
years ago
i was walking on
Sunset Blvd
toward Vermont
a block away
i noticed a
figure moving
toward me.

there was something
in her carriage
and in her walk

as we came
the intensity

i knew her
entire history:
she had lived
all her life
with men
who had never really
known her.

as she approached
i became almost

i could hear her
footsteps as
she approached.

i looked into
her face.

she was as
as i had
imagined she
would be.

as we passed
our eyes fucked
and loved and
sang to each

and then
she moved
past me.

i walked on
not looking

when i looked
she was

what is one
to do
in a world
where almost everything
worth having
or doing

I went into
a coffee shop
and decided that
if i ever saw
her again somehow,
I'd say
"listen, please
i just must
speak to

I never saw her

I never will.

the iron in our
society silences
a man's

and when you
silence a man's
you leave him
finally with only
a cock.

Have you ever wanted to just shake someone until they realize they are awesome and special the way they are?

Wow. I just saw this on Facebook. I'm pretty sure this is one of the most awful things I've seen.


Melanotan II is an analog of the peptide hormone alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone that induces skin tanning.---

---Um, wow. Now, people are actually injecting themselves with this drug to get "naturally tan."

[ mood | thanking god its the end of the week ]

Today I got this email along with my first warning. The email was very threatening and entirely ominous:

Remember if you receive 2 warnings you will be expelled from NHS and not receive a tassel to walk with in graduation.

One down, one to go. I think I have 5 credits. We should have 9. We need 12 by the end of the year.

Monday you can hold your head

Tuesday Wednesday stay in bed

Or Thursday watch the walls instead

It's Friday I'm in love

I'm trying to figure out Last.fm but I'm confused and intimidated.
Any advice?

I'm really into poetry right now... [25 Jan 2007|07:17pm]

The Naked and the Nude
Robert Graves

For me, the naked and the nude
(By lexicographers construed
As synonyms that should express
The same deficiency of dress
Or shelter) stand as wide apart
As love from lies, or truth from art.

Lovers without reproach will gaze
On bodies naked and ablaze;
The Hippocratic eye will see
In nakedness, anatomy;
And naked shines the Goddess when
She mounts her lion among men.

The nude are bold, the nude are sly
To hold each treasonable eye.
While draping by a showman's trick
Their dishabille in rhetoric,
They grin a mock-religious grin
Of scorn at those of naked skin.

The naked, therefore, who compete
Against the nude may know defeat;
Yet when they both together tread
The briary pastures of the dead,
By Gorgons with long whips pursued,
How naked go the sometime nude!

Also...Christine and I, in amazing group effort fashion, changed a tire today. This may seem trivial, but when my dad refused to teach me how a while back (and yet showed my brother), I felt very...proud. Granted it was a team effort, I now know how to do something for myself.
And Nelson was sweet when he offered to pay for our lunch since we helped, but, I didn't take him up on it. I was just glad for the opportunity to leanr something new.

My Week [10 Dec 2006|05:54pm]
Hmmm. I don't remember everything that I wanted to post since I kept putting it off...

Thursday- play with Matt. All my friends did an amazing job. Sarah made me cry, she was so good. Aaron and Ryan and Andrew were amazing, as well.
Friday- Went to the play again for NHS/CCS and got a flat tire. Then I got Matt dinner and watched battlestar.
Saturday- Slept forever. Then had dinner at my aunts. Got in a huge fight with my family about freedom of speech and gay rights. Left feeling pissed off.
Sunday- built a gingerbread house and did a huge gov project.

Sooo tired.

Modern, Cool Nerd

91 % Nerd, 65% Geek, 39% Dork

For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.

A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.

A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.

Nerds didn't use to be cool, but in the 90's that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn't quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very least, and "geek is chic." The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge). They are the one you want as your lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (or the one up there, winning the million bucks)!

The Peach
Random Gentle Love Master (RGLMf)

Playful, kind, and well-loved, you are The Peach.

For such a warm-hearted, generous person, you're surprisingly experienced in both love and sex. We credit your spontaneous side; you tend to live in the moment, and you don't get bogged down by inhibitions like most women your age. If you see something wonderful, you confidently embrace it.

Your exact opposite:
The Nymph

Deliberate Brutal Sex Dreamer
You are a fun flirt and an instant sweetheart, but our guess is you're becoming more selective about long-term love. It's getting tougher for you to become permanently attached; and a guy who's in a different place emotionally might misunderstand your early enthusiasm. You can wreck someone simply by enjoying him.

Your ideal mate is adventurous and giving, like you. But not overly intense.

Poll [15 Nov 2006|04:37pm]
So, this isn't an official LJ poll because I refuse to upgrade to a plus acount. I think its a horrible idea. If I really wanted to, I'd pay for an account, but this is good enough.
Make your vote count. Comment!

Vote (yes) or (no).

Will Shale round up my 89.5 to an A?

So I've been working on my paper for some time now and, while its going okay, its dull, thankless work. So, I spent some time at the gym which was good, but when I came home, exhausted and hungry, I still had a paper to work on.

Well...let me tell you how my mom cheered me up. She gave me the coolest LED toy I have ever owned. It is a pig whoe nostrils light up with blue LEDs when you push a button. It also makes sounds.

Smile :)
