Stole this from sky_was_green, who stole it from copperbadge, who apparently stole it from One Tree Hill, but we love him anyway. Comments are anonymous only.

You have one word to tell me what you want -- in this moment or for the rest of your life, or somewhere in between.

(Edit): I'm dumb. It's now public, so you can actually follow the instructions.

.... I had the biggest crush on him in 8th grade. Harra told him and he ran away from me ever since. And now he works with me. ::continues to die of laughter::

Also, Vicky blew up the microwave at work, and the entire mall had to evacuate.

... my life is sooo weird.

Run away from all your whoredom

And wave your worries and cares

Subject:Karen's gonna yell at me for not using an lj cut...

"I like to remember everything," Remus says, very quietly, so as not to wake him. "As it was. Because moments by themselves aren't enough; they're just -- they're like photographs. They move a little, they wave, but they aren't everything. You can look back on a moment and say 'In that moment I was happy' or, more often than not, 'In that moment I was uncomfortable' or 'In that moment I was sad' or 'In that moment we were all berks' but you can look back on everything and you think, 'That was good.' Because when all the moments come together, when all the songs meet up with one another, you get something whole and complete and wonderful, people you loved and people you hated and a fondness for them you may not be able to recapture but everything you remember about them being somehow more than they really were, because that's what remembering everything does. When I'm old, I think, I'll look back on this and I won't remember 'That time Sirius thought, if he lit a fart on fire, he could make a star come out of his arse' but I'll probably remember the stars themselves. I won't think 'He nearly choked me when he grabbed onto my tie' but I will think about the stupid doggy noises you're making, even right now, even while you're sleeping. It probably means remembering everything and not jumping from moment to moment like life is a game of leap-frog and should be taken experience to experience like lily-pads is foolish, because I won't remember you're often a berk and James is often a berk and Peter can be impressively inane and I am such a wet-blanket with such a large nose it's a miracle you don't hate me. I'll just remember that I talked for five minutes to a friend who was already sleeping and I was happy anyway."

Subject:Don't forget....

Tommorrow, April 21st, is the national Day of Silence. For those of you who do not know what it is, here's how the cards explain it (if you want some, ask me for 'em or print some out for yourself at www.dayofsilence.org ...go to "resources," then to "samples and cards" and scroll down)

"April 21, 2004- Day of Silence
Please understand my reasons for not speaking today. I am participating in the Day of Silence, a national youth movement protesting the silence faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their allies. My deliberate silence echoes that silence, which is caused by the harassment, prejudice, and discrimination. I believe that ending the silence is the first step toward fighting these injustices. Think about the voiced you are not hearing today.
What are you going to do to end the silence?
-- Day of Silence Project"

Yeah. So...show your support. Break the silence.

Subject:Yesterday, Today, & Tommorrow

There are two days in ever week about which we should not worry; two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension.

One of these days is yesterday with its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains.  Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control. 

All the money in the world cannot bring back yesterday.  We cannot undo a single act we performed; we cannot erase a single word we said.  Yesterday is gone.

The other day we should not worry about is tomorrow with its possible adversities, its burdens, its large promise and poor performance.  Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate control. 

Tommorrow will rise, either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds- but it will rise.  Until it does, we have no stake in tommorrow, for it is as yet unborn.

This leaves only one day- today.  Any man can fight the battles of just one day.  It is when you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternities- yesterday and tommorrow- that we break down.

It is not the experiance of today that drives men mad- it is remorse or bitterness for something that happened yesterday and the dread of what tommorrow may bring.

Let us, therefore, live but one day at a time.

Subject:Oh dear.

It is officially fuck'o'clock in the morning, and I'm still awake. IR is still not done, and neither is Lit homework.... heh. I am officially screwed, and can't even bring myself to care at this point.

Oh, and by the way, Happy Easter.

Subject:Jesus Christ

Eh-hem.  AHHHHH!!! 

Fhew.  I needed that.  I am going frigging crazy right now.  I need to know how the musical is going.  I'm sure it will be fine, but still.....I want to be there.  The idea was to stay home tonight and to finish this damn IR historical outline, since this weekend is pretty booked, and then to see the musical Saturday night when it's supposed to be at its best.  But now I am regretting it.  And I am not getting any work done because I'm thinking about it, but it already started so it's too late to go now, and even if I did, when am I going to finish this otherwise?  Work Friday and Sunday, class Saturday til 3, celebrating Karens birthday (18 today, whooo!).  Not to mention the fact that I was already informed a few days ago by my parents that I'm not allowed out tonight.  Jesus, let this damn night be over.  Now.  Please.

...slowly going out of my mind....

Subject:More wishful thinking.

I wish that I could show people themselves through my eyes. Like "A Bowl of Oranges"-- "But if the world could remain within a frame like a painting on a wall, I think we'd see the beauty then and stand staring in awe at our still lives posed like a bowl of oranges..." I wish that people understood themselves better-- not to mention eachother. I wish people weren't so goddamn cruel. I wish that humanity as a whole wasn't so set on self-destruction. I wish that I could make people understand the beauty that I see in themselves and in the world, as fucked up as it may be. I wish I wasn't such a dreamer.
