The Spider and the Fly [03 Mar 2006|07:10pm]
[ mood | geeky ]

The Spider and the Fly

An Apologue.
A New Version Of An Old Story.

Will you walk into my parlour?" said the Spider to the Fly,
'Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to shew when you are there."
Oh no, no," said the little Fly, "to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair can ne'er come down again."

"I'm sure you must be weary, dear, with soaring up so high;
Will you rest upon my little bed?" said the Spider to the Fly.
"There are pretty curtains drawn around; the sheets are fine and thin,
And if you like to rest awhile, I'll snugly tuck you in!"
Oh no, no," said the little Fly, "for I've often heard it said,
They never, never wake again, who sleep upon your bed!"

Said the cunning Spider to the Fly, " Dear friend what can I do,
To prove the warm affection I 've always felt for you?
I have within my pantry, good store of all that's nice;
I'm sure you're very welcome -- will you please to take a slice?"
"Oh no, no," said the little Fly, "kind Sir, that cannot be,
I've heard what's in your pantry, and I do not wish to see!"

"Sweet creature!" said the Spider, "you're witty and you're wise,
How handsome are your gauzy wings, how brilliant are your eyes!
I've a little looking-glass upon my parlour shelf,
If you'll step in one moment, dear, you shall behold yourself."
"I thank you, gentle sir," she said, "for what you 're pleased to say,
And bidding you good morning now, I'll call another day."

The Spider turned him round about, and went into his den,
For well he knew the silly Fly would soon come back again:
So he wove a subtle web, in a little corner sly,
And set his table ready, to dine upon the Fly.
Then he came out to his door again, and merrily did sing,
"Come hither, hither, pretty Fly, with the pearl and silver wing;
Your robes are green and purple -- there's a crest upon your head;
Your eyes are like the diamond bright, but mine are dull as lead!"

Alas, alas! how very soon this silly little Fly,
Hearing his wily, flattering words, came slowly flitting by;
With buzzing wings she hung aloft, then near and nearer drew,
Thinking only of her brilliant eyes, and green and purple hue --
Thinking only of her crested head -- poor foolish thing! At last,
Up jumped the cunning Spider, and fiercely held her fast.
He dragged her up his winding stair, into his dismal den,
Within his little parlour -- but she ne'er came out again!

And now dear little children, who may this story read,
To idle, silly flattering words, I pray you ne'er give heed:
Unto an evil counsellor, close heart and ear and eye,
And take a lesson from this tale, of the Spider and the Fly.

by Mary Howitt 1821.

The BEST poem/story EVER!

Remember that bubble gum that as like the band-aids? its funny how things like that cheer me up.

The Olympics have owned me (or pwned me if you will). When an American wins a medal and you see the award ceremony, you cant turn it off. Its like an act off treason turning off the National Anthem. Congrats! Apolo Anton Ohno is probably the best athlete there. BUT you cant hate Bode...lol,silly Bode.

Remember when they hadn't sold out?

My Top 3 UNSIGNED Bands... [26 Jan 2006|04:49pm]
[ mood | mellow ]

This year, I feel that there are 10 3 bands that if not signed by the end of THIS year, the music business is really dumb...

The Top 10 3 (in no order)

1.) A Heartwell Ending

-Favorite Lyric "With the flick of the tongue and the shake in the hips/And the look in your eye and the red in your lips" - If Looks Could Kill

2.) The Scene Aesthetic

-Favorite Lyric "Fighting to keep this alive/(Kid it's better that way)/Constantly fighting to keep myself going/(But I can't have you stay)" -Alvin Maker's Greensong

3.) Straight outta the F'burg...its KENMORE!

-Favorite Lyric "My first name will be the last one (the last one) will be the last word you ever scream, so loud" -Kenmore Park

There would have been more BUT a majority of the bands i like WERE SIGNED just to indie labels.

[ mood | disappointed ]

YES! I will elaborate on this OH SO DELICATE issue...

While at my local Wal-Mart, i noticed a condom box pushed WAY back into the shelf. Me being a good customer that i am (*cough* im nosy *cough*) picked it up and noticed that is was STICKY and OPEN. I immediatly droped it and was like "EWWWWW".

if having the "WILD THING" in your local Wal-Mart, PLEASE dont leave your "Junk" lying around the store.

Last Monday I bought porn for usagi_chan24 (10 points). Last Tuesday I caught a purse-snatcher who stole trf2374's purse (30 points). Last week I gave change to a homeless guy (19 points).

Overall, I've been naughty (-31 points). For Christmas I deserve a lump of coal!

Tired of this cliche known as life... [28 Nov 2005|06:28pm]
[ mood | cold ]

these songs may right my moods, but that is only because i let them.

its when you are standing in line next to someone boasting about there problems like they are the most precious stone that you realize what life is. when there is a moment of silence for student who passed on, you grow to appreciate life. its the nights lying awake, listening to static come in on the radio that you appreciate the simpler things. no more pills, no more tear-filled nights.

its being a comformist for trying to fit in but being a "freak" for trying to not be a robot just spit out in disgrace by an American Eagle or Abercrombie ad. its dreaming of a life out of high-school that actually means something, not just a teller at the store up the road.

being told who and what we need to be. lost hopes of a doctor or lawyer, if only she hadnt tried to hard. now i swear to god that i would rather die than have anything to do with medicine or law. being told i cant go to that school because its not good enough or just because a friend has something against it.

hearing people complain about complainers....oh how we love sweet irony, and that is all this world is anymore. we are told high-school is "going to make us the men or women we are going to be" but then once out you are told all that didnt matter, no one is going to care if you made a 99 in advanced physics or a 70, just as long as you passed.

its funny how many things life throws our way. while my life may be considered "perfect" by many, it is in no way perfect. that is the truth. deal with it. i realized the other night that i have many issues. self-esteem being numero uno. why you may ask.... because i take after my mom. she said so herself. i dont have the balls to stand up to others BUT i will stand up for what i believe in. its an eye-opener when your mother says im more spineless than her...and that takes A LOT.

its always a 3 asprin morning where i live, music pounding through the speakers giving me one last thought. The Breakfast Club is the epitome of all high-school life. if only it was that easy. sitting in detention with a bunch of strangers.

if i was the molly ringwald id be worshiped, put up on the pedistool of shame as a prime example of teenage royalty, but instead im ally sheedy and im happy just where i am because your approval means nothing to me.

in this race known as life, i may not finish first but ill finish, even if i die trying.

Long Time No Write/Right,,, [20 Nov 2005|07:12pm]
[ mood | artistic ]

HAHA....im so clever with the title...because i havent written in a while and nothing has been going right....gosh im so good....


So i was sitin in my room and i was like i should write a book. So i am gonna do that. Its gonna be like "The Boy With the Thorn in His Side" meets "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" (2 of the best books ever) so yeah...its gonna be like a diary of a kid like The Boy but in a girl form (seeing as it is easier to write from a girls POV cause i am in fact a girl). I prolly will take some journal entries i wrote for me and mix it in there. It is gonna be great. I had a dream about it the other night. so yeah. i always say im gonna start a book but then never actually finish the story. If you only knew how many random papers were in my room...


Oh OH OH! i have a rant...my aunt told me something that made me mad.

I hate people who will be all like (ill use HP cause the movie just came out) "I'm Harry, worship me now!" I personally find that creepy and i think that those people need professional help. so yeah...

Wow... that was a pathetic rant but good enough. i think you get the point.

Oh and on the book, when i get a significant amount written i would put it in if you would like! or ? im not sure which it is...
