I'd Rather Be Reading.

September 29, 2009

I just finished reading Tess of the D'urbervilles
which, despite the (at times) slow moving plot (perhaps that's because I knew from the start
who she would and wouldn't end up with)
I still fell in love with the book and Thomas Hardy...
more importantly, I re-fell in love with reading.
(Some people say you can't fall in love more than once...
I do often)
Anyway, it's time to make another trip to barnes & noble
and i'd like your help.
What are some of your favorite books?
Favorite authors?
Fiction, non fiction...

Your feedback would be oh-so appreciated, giving me another perfect excuse to start drinking caramel hazlenut steamers with my nose buried in a book.

To: You-Know-Who.

To My Valentine.
(but it's really written by Ogden Nash)

More than a catbird hates a cat,
Or a criminal hates a clue,
Or the Axis hates the United States,
That's how much I love you.

I love you more than a duck can swim,
And more than a grapefruit squirts,
I love you more than a gin rummy is a bore,
And more than a toothache hurts.

As a shipwrecked sailor hates the sea,
Or a juggler hates a shove,
As a hostess detests unexpected guests,
That's how much you I love.

I love you more than a wasp can sting,
And more than the subway jerks,
I love you as much as a beggar needs a crutch,
And more than a hangnail irks.

I swear to you by the stars above,
And below, if such there be,
As the High Court loathes perjurious oathes,
That's how you're love by me.

-i read this tonight for my eng. 251 course that i was raving about a couple weeks ago. i. love. this. class.

i also love holding hands, which is why i am writing about this today.

i always wonder why having someones hand in yours feels like one of the greatest things in the entire world.

Two Is Better Than One.

I once wrote about Kathleen Kelly from my all-time Favorite movie: You've Got Mail.
If I were to be cast into any movie, as any character that totally identifies with who I am...I would perfectly fit her role.

however, if my life were to have background music by only ONE artist...
and I could relate to only ONE person...
Hands down, Taylor Swift would be singing my story.
One of My All-Time Favorites? The Way I Loved You.
A new favorite?
2 Is Better than 1.

i just heard it over the weekend,
what do you guys think?

Walking Down the Isle for the Very First Time.

September 18, 2009

I have an old friend from long ago who I met while living in Hawaii. Years later, I still think she is one of the sweetest girls I've ever known (And someone who I still envy. She always looks flawless. Always.) We lost touch until recently we were reunited on Facebook and I fell in love with her love life.

She was proposed to here
(on the beach with a thousand tiny twinkle lights)

And now they are one of the most stunning couples I've ever seen.

You can look at the rest of them here and here.

*note to any potential future husband: we have to
try and be half as cute.
and happy wishes and congratulations again to katie & nate!

September 16, 2009

With a lot of these people...

Doing something like this:

isn't that video great?way cool fact: sigur ros' lyrics are icelandic.
i know, i know,
i thought they had they're own language too,
but i still love it.

and this is because i still love cummings.

September 8, 2009

i almost cried the other day in my english 251 class.
imagine me. sitting in class.
braving another day, and another week.
guys, i know i said i was excited for fall.
but after nearly failing my french exam,
and after realizing that i will literally have gray
hair at the end of this semester
thanks to my masterpieces in world lit course...
I heard the following:
"i hope you like cummings, class. he'll be our focus this semester."

i really truly wanted to cry.
i still do.
out of all the misery and doom i was
beginning to anticipate for fall semester of '09
i heard those words -
"i hope you like cummings, class."
seriously, it felt like christmas morning.

so i thought i'd share - yet again - one of my favorites,
because i will always love mr. cummings.


we're anything brighter than even the sun

(we're everything greater
than books
might mean)
we're everyanything more than believe
(with a spin
alive we're alive)
we're wonderful one times one.

i will say that to someone one day too.
"we're wonderful one times one."
now that's wonderful.

because i loved new york.

This moonlit scenic lift makes for a truly memorable experience and offers the perfect opportunity to allow the mountain to work its magic."
