The time has come...

As I thought it might, the time has come for me to exit stage left from LJ. The site is unbearably slow most days and most of my friends here post only rarely anyway.

I will keep this journal up (as it encompasses the last four years of my life, a mostly very happy time indeed).

You can still find me occasionally drifting in to check on friends or on MySpace, Facebook, Yahoo 360, All Consuming, etc. but most of my web activity including all of my blogging will be over on Blogger.

Everyone take care of yourselves, keep me in your thoughts and keep in touch. Email address is the same as always!

ETA: The lovely rolypolypony has made an RSS feed for those who are interested see her comment below.

Help me decide

Okay, fifth anniversay is July 20th... and I am in serious need of help!

The issue being that the gift I had planned to get my husband is out of stock and has been since May. (Therefore, please note choosing the "Bond" style equals giftcard with promise to get said watch when/if it ever reappears.)

*In addition, if anyone knows how I might acquire said "Bond" style watch, let me know and we can work something out!

**I should also point out that the Ryder style was my first choice when I found out that the Bond watch was unavailable and that the Tarheels was a distant second because I think it is silly to wear apparel from a school one has never and likely will never attend... however, he is a big UNC fan and it is an alma mater of a few family members, so they'd get a kick out of it at least.

Why Me? Penguin


I love this song, listening to it now on Kermit...

You know I just realized that "Levon" is "Novel" spelled backwards... hmmmmm...

Does anyone know about the line "He was born a paupaer to a pawn on a Christmas day//when the New York Times said God is Dead//and the war's begun..." I seem to recall something about that from one of my Modernism classes...
American Flags

You can't be forever blessed

American Tune
Words & music by Paul Simon

Many's the time I've been mistaken
And many times confused
Yes, and I've often felt forsaken
And certainly misused
Oh, but I'm alright, I'm alright
I'm just weary to my bones
Still, you don't expect to be
Bright and bon vivant
So far a-way from home, so far away from home

And I don't know a soul who's not been battered
I don't have a friend who feels at ease
I don't know a dream that's not been shattered
or driven to its knees
but it's alright, it's alright
for we lived so well so long
Still, when I think of the
road we're traveling on
I wonder what's gone wrong
I can't help it, I wonder what has gone wrong

And I dreamed I was dying
I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly
And looking back down at me
Smiled reassuringly
And I dreamed I was flying
And high up above my eyes could clearly see
The Statue of Liberty
Sailing away to sea
And I dreamed I was flying

We come on the ship they call the Mayflower
We come on the ship that sailed the moon
We come in the age's most uncertain hours
and sing an American tune
Oh, and it's alright, it's alright, it's alright
You can't be forever blessed
Still, tomorrow's going to be another working day
And I'm trying to get some rest
That's all I'm trying to get some rest
