Morning came
and I tried
not to notice
It was time
for you
to move along
The minutes
fell like petals
all around us
Like a goodbye kiss
when goodbye
felt so wrong
So
you better
get going
You better
move along now
You better
run off then
and make yourself
scarce
These few days
I have decided
to be lazy
They don't move
or seem
to end at all
And my heart
it is close enough
to breaking
That it hurts
just listening
to your song
It's been while now
since you left
And I can't seem
to shake
this lonely mood
When the time comes
I'll try my best
not to tell you
"Please
don't leave again"
Since it's all
I have
I want
to go to sleep
And dream of you
and me
just off the coast
On a holiday
so long
and warm
and lucky
Always wake up
in my bedroom
all
alone

Who else is as broke as me this holiday season?

During my downtime at work I try to scour the internet for deals because I really can't afford to buy things at full price right now. I found this website called No More Rack. They have 9 deals per day on items like kitchen appliances, clothes, jewelry and electronics. The deals change every day at 12pmEST so you have to act quick. Anything you buy, shipping is $2 no matter what. Just know that it is $2 per item, so if you buy 3 of 1 thing, shipping will be $6. Which is still good considering they have TV's on this website for only $2 shipping. I got my sister 4 apple candles that were $25 at the Homegoods store for $4 on the site.

I would recommend Googling the price of the item before you buy it just in case the embellished the "retail price" but they only seem to really do that for the watches.

I get a point if you sign up using my link so please use that if you can, I appreciate it. Here's the link that credits me for you signing up---> http://www.nomorerack.com/?cr=2379228

But that's just the first time you go to it. Once you sign up (free to do so) the link is just http://www.nomorerack.com



Hope this helps out with the money crunch this year! Happy holidays! :)

The Epic Battle [Wednesday
July, 16th, 2008
]
Between Kimber the Pirate and The Fierce Matt Pierce
Green = Matt's writing
Purple = Kim's writing


Matt Matt
Rhymes with hat
I stopped by to have a chat
I was just bitten by a cat
How about that
And am now being summoned into combat


And lo did Kimber enter the fray
For she was determined to win the day
it seemed at first she'd won the battle
by pelting her foes with words...and cattle
but then alas! Oh rue the day
from o'er the mountains: "Callou, Callay!"
the call of a rider echoed loud
as the Jabberwock he rode, like a feathered cloud
swooped down to where Kim, impatient, sat
and upon its back 'twas no other than Matt.
"You're late, dude" she cried, "and what is THIS shit?
You brought your pet? That's cheating, you twit!"
"I'll get you for that!"
"Yeah? Well I'll skin your cat!"
"I'll throw you to the moon!"
"Well I'll beat you 'til June!"
"I'll torch you to cinders!"
"I'll give you eight billion splinters!"
"I'll kick, bite and maim!"
"Bah! Have double the same!"
"And what makes you think so? Some fanciful whim?"
"Please! Perhaps you've forgotten; you're dealing with Kim.
I have made kings cry with a single mad glare,
defeated 100 samurai with naught but my hair,
I bitch-slapped Cthulu back into his pit,
blink too slow and you just might miss my quick wit,
sarcasm like mine has never been heard,
I INVENTED awesome, I coined the phrase 'word.'
Who else could put your army all dead in a pile
and look so freakin' GOOD all the while?"
Matt brandished his sword from atop his beast
and with a crazed grin his face was creased
"You boast and you brag. Hey guess what? I can hear.
But I'm through with your talking; bring the fighting up here!"
Thus she charged up the Jabberwock with a murderous yell
What then? Only your next comment will tell.


Thus the second battle began with a thunderous roar
Kimber had summoned a Megazord, which was way friggin’ hardcore.
It rushed for the Jabberwock, while theme music played
Kimber smiled slyly, and took out her blade
“Your little pet is distracted, and he’s no match for mine
Come fight me yourself, unless you resign”
“Never!” Matt bellowed “You insulted my pet.
I can’t take that lightly, he’s rather upset.”
“Then bring it, bizatch.” Then leapt at her foe
With surprising speed that would make Keanu go “whoa.”
The two fought for days, still neither one tired
There was motion blur, techno, and a ring of cold fire!
On the 89th hour, still neither was slain
What happens now? Well, it’s your turn again.


Yet three days; nay almost four
these two had a duel like none before,
The two fighting masters, they slashed and they blocked
while with the battle of their pets the countryside rocked.
The Jabberwock, uncanny, and so strange a beast,
the Megazord could not compute in the least.
Then again, the 'Wock had never seen a mech
let alone a dino, so he's like, "What the Heck?"
And while Godzilla played out several stories tall,
two masterful fighters danced in a bladed squall.
He had practiced quite hard in every style,
while it came to her naturally through cunning and guile.
First stab and then block, now parry and thrust,
they swirled with great speed and kicked up much dust,
yet when it settled, there was only a Kim.
"I didn't think I was THAT good; I vaporized him!"
"Ah-ah-ah!" came a call from back and to the right,
"I just need a new strategy to win this fight."
She spun and she saw him: he was well away.
"Hey you, get back here! I haven't got all damn day!"
He merely shrugged and held his place.
"You don't seem to get it. With a blade you're an ace.
I've never 'til you met quite such a match,
so out of this stalemate a plan I did hatch.
The chance of my loss didn't seem very fun
and that's when it hit me: why not two against one?"
Sheathing his sword he dropped to a knee,
muttered some words and gathered his Ki.
She lost sight for a moment as he became a blur,
and then where one Matt just was, two now were!
"Cheating again!" she cried, "Well though this trick is new,
if you're not careful, I'll stop going easy on you."
"'Twixt genius and trickery is a wise connotation,
but I'll bet you're not here for Confucian quotation."
They crossed as they charged and came from both sides.
And then- well now, that's for you to decide.


They crossed as they charged and came from both sides.
But what befell next gave them both a surprise.
They stopped in their paths, mouths gaping wide
“Holycrapwhattheshit? My eyes must have lied!”
For between them stood badass, of an epic scope
It was Chuck Norris, grundle punching the pope.
“Enough!” He bellowed, post roundhouse kick to the head
“You’re annoying as enemies. Join forces instead”
He liquefied their weapons with the a twitch of the lip
And turned their pets to J-E-L-L-O with one finger tip
The as fast as he came, he was gone in a blink
Matt gaped at the air, Kimber reached for a drink
“We should do what he says, he’s badshit whacked out”
Thought out loud the Kim Pirate, who yet, had her doubts
They both stood unarmed, in silent frustration
Hey Matt, I’m outta rhymes, you finish the narration


With curious grimaces they, ponderous, sat,
Matt considering Kim, and she sizing up Matt
"Friends with her?" thought the Matt. "The idea doesn't thrill me
I've never been good with girls, especially ones that try to kill me..."
"Friends with THIS guy? I mean, it was an OK fight,
and ignore a few things and I guess he's alright..."
"Hey!" cried she, "Dude, step back a pace.
Remind me, why were we fighting in the first place??"
"Gladly I'll recount the most heinous plot!
It was...umm...er...well damn, I forgot.
So, friends it is! Let us from each other take cue."
"Well, now that that's settled, what do you think we ought do?"
And almost as if destined, in time person and place,
the same mischievous madness alighted each face.
"What if we two" said Matt, "were to defeat the Norris?"
"Why, they'd tell our praises" said Kim, "in poems and in chorus!"
Side by side these legends marched towards their next fray,
and that, children, is a story for some other day.

When will the dying end?

"Hide And Seek"
 IMOGEN HEAP

Where are we? What the hell is going on?
The dust has only just begun to fall,
Crop circles in the carpet, sinking, feeling.
Spin me round again and rub my eyes.
This can't be happening.
When busy streets a mess with people
would stop to hold their heads heavy.

Hide and seek.
Trains and sewing machines.
All those years they were here first.

Oily marks appear on walls
Where pleasure moments hung before.
The takeover, the sweeping insensitivity of this
still life.

Hide and seek.
Trains and sewing machines. (Oh, you won't catch me around here)
Blood and tears,
They were here first.

Mmm, what you say?
Mm, that you only meant well? Well, of course you did.
Mmm, what you say?
Mm, that it's all for the best? Ah of course it is.
Mmm, what you say?
Mm, that it's just what we need? And you decided this.
Mmm what you say?
What did she say?

Ransom notes keep falling out your mouth.
Mid-sweet talk, newspaper word cut-outs.
Speak no feeling, no I don't believe you.
You don't care a bit. You don't care a bit.

All About Music [Tuesday
September, 5th, 2006
]
Ok so I went to Bullmoose (The one in N. Windham is so small and lame) and actually bought some CDs. Four in fact! 
This made me look at my sad, sad music collection. I do not purchase CDs, I download them. Mainly I just download individual songs and not the whole albums so I have like...4000 random music files on my poor laptop. I have decided I need more CDs. I need more music in general but I am looking for whole albums here. I compiled a list of one I need and ones I have already (or at least all of the ones I could find. Some have run away. )

So,
If anybody has any of the CD's on my list of ones I want, would you want to be my bestest friend ever *bats eyelashes* and upload it for me so I can have it? Please???  I'll trade you one of mine even!

Know anyone who wants to buy a white '92 Grand Prix SE? It's an automatic 2 door with power windows and locks. Ask me anything about it you want. Asking 1,600 bucks or best offer. I am making flyers this week and putting them up around USM and SMCC, but I thought I'd put something in here just in case. It will come with a full tank of gas and a complimentary cassette of "driving tunes." I don't have any pictures right now but if you go to www.autotrader.com I am sure they have some of similar cars.

My story for class [Thursday

[ mood | accomplished ]

(For one night only this will be a public entry, so those without livejournals may comment if they feel like. This story is copyrighted and if you steal it I will definitely stab you. So just don't.)


Untitled
By Kimberly Somers

Sean walked through the damp park on a Tuesday evening. She wants to talk. Yeah right, he thought. She wants to throw him to the gutter and never look back. An icy, nauseating feeling like his stomach had solidified made him stop and breathe for a second. He made his decision. He could not, would not, live without her. He wouldn’t let this relationship fall to pieces. He would accept her apology like the good boyfriend that he is, and that would be the end of the entire situation. She would never see Eric again, and that would be that.

Evelyn felt like a terrible person as she waited for Sean to meet her at their special tree in the park. This was the tree they had their first date at. It had been a sunny noontime picnic with lots of ants. She had gotten sunburned that day. Now it was absolutely freezing and she hugged her sweater closer to her body. Evelyn kept the picture of Eric’s face clear in her mind and told herself not to chicken out.

Frank cuddled with his bottle of mouthwash and pulled his newspaper blanket over his head. The bench wasn’t as cozy a place to sleep as the mossy area by the pond was, but it wasn’t as cold. Through his extremely blurred vision, Frank saw a girl standing against a tree talking to a young man. The radio in Franks head began again and he clamped his hands over his ears to drown it out.

Molly wiped at her tearstained cheeks and sat down on a swing. She hated when her daddy yelled. He always did it when he drank the stuff in the dark bottles. She liked the swing set in the park. It was up on a hill away from all the bad strangers her mommy told her not to talk to, and it was very close to her house. She went to the swing set when her daddy was yelling at her mommy at night. The metallic scraping noise the chains made when she swung just slightly was a comforting sound.

The rest is under here. Cut for length.Collapse )

Constructive criticism is welcome. This includes punctuation, grammar, spelling errors spell check may not have caught, or just things that don't sound quite right and may need tweaking. NOT THINGS THAT WILL DRAMATICALLY CHANGE THE STORY. I am bringing this to class tomorrow. I don't want to read it out loud though. I hate doing that :( I never do things justice with my stammering and stuttering. I may have to though. Tell me what you think please. If I read this in class and you were asked by the teacher to react to it, what would you say? I want to be prepared. Also, any ideas for a title?



[EDIT] Feedback i just recieved from a girl in my class, and my replies:

hey kimberley,

i'm quite impressed that you've already written your story in, what sounds like, one night. alright, here are my thoughts:

evelyn's fear could be presented better; she must be horrified, but you mainly focus on sean and his emotions. talk a little more about what she must be going through and the terror she is experiencing, especially in the end when she gets stabbed.

i'm not sure how believable it is that molly doesn't realize what is going on. her parents fight a lot, so she must be used to scenes like this. don't you think that she would associate the situation between sean and evelyn with the situation of her parents? maybe molly should have a different background (=intact family) in order to highlight her innocence more.

what happens to evelyn? i'm curious; does she get killed? you probably wanted to keep the reader in the dark on this, which is probably a good idea. i also think, like you've mentioned, that you should start the story with molly, so it will be more rounded. this way, the focus will lay on her a little more, and the contrast between innocence and brutality will be highlighted more as well.

one little thing: instead of talking about the 'radio' in frank's head, you might want to call it 'voices.'

besides this i think that you've done a great job with your first draft!!



annette.


"evelyn's fear could be presented better; she must be horrified, but you mainly focus on sean and his emotions. talk a little more about what she must be going through and the terror she is experiencing, especially in the end when she gets stabbed."

Yes I was trying to but it just got late and I was tired haha. I had originally written more from Sean's point of view (in my pre-rough draft writing I guess I would call it) so that's probably why there is more focus on him. This is just my first draft so I will try and concentrate on her more when I re-write it. Lots of people have been saying to concentrate on Evelyn more so I will make it my number one priority for the re-write. :-)



"i'm not sure how believable it is that molly doesn't realize what is going on. her parents fight a lot, so she must be used to scenes like this. don't you think that she would associate the situation between sean and evelyn with the situation of her parents? maybe molly should have a different background (=intact family) in order to highlight her innocence more."

hmmmm good point. I pictured her as being like...maybe 8. her house is right across the street from the park (She is allowed to cross the street because it is deserted, not that she's allowed to be out in the first place but that was my mini story behind her.) I need a reason for her to be on the swingset though. Hmmmm. I will think about that one and try to figure something out.

"one little thing: instead of talking about the 'radio' in frank's head, you might want to call it 'voices."

I thought about that but I figured it might be too cliche. Plus i have taken lots of psychology classes and lots of schizophrenic people say that what they hear is like a radio in their heads that won't shut off. So I used that idea. I can take it out but i kind of like it. I will try to clarify it more though.

Thank you so much for your reply! I will fix it up when I get home tonight. :-D

[/EDIT] Feedback on the feedback works too. Do you agree? Disagree? Any sugestions?
