if the real thing don't do the trick, you better think of something quick.. oooh barracuda!

so far, nick and i have watched 'twilight', 'ratatouille', 'the fight club', and 'rat race', all of which i hadn't seen sans the first.

we have 'little miss sunshine', 'the last samurai', and 'spaceballs' left.

have any non-gory movies to suggest? neither of us can handle it.

today i had to read this to my english class. i hadn't read it, nor was i prepared.

"OF Mans First Disobedience, and the Fruit
Of that Forbidden Tree, whose mortal tast
Brought Death into the World, and all our woe,
With loss of Eden, till one greater Man
Restore us, and regain the blissful Seat, [ 5 ]
Sing Heav'nly Muse,that on the secret top
Of Oreb, or of Sinai, didst inspire
That Shepherd, who first taught the chosen Seed,
In the Beginning how the Heav'ns and Earth
Rose out of Chaos: Or if Sion Hill [ 10 ]
Delight thee more, and Siloa's Brook that flow'd
Fast by the Oracle of God; I thence
Invoke thy aid to my adventrous Song,
That with no middle flight intends to soar
Above th' Aonian Mount, while it pursues [ 15 ]
Things unattempted yet in Prose or Rhime.
And chiefly Thou O Spirit, that dost prefer
Before all Temples th' upright heart and pure,
Instruct me, for Thou know'st; Thou from the first
Wast present, and with mighty wings outspread [ 20 ]
Dove-like satst brooding on the vast Abyss
And mad'st it pregnant: What in me is dark
Illumin, what is low raise and support;
That to the highth of this great Argument
I may assert Eternal Providence, [ 25 ]
And justifie the wayes of God to men. "

Probably the scariest thing I've ever done. My voice waivered. I almost had tears in my eyes. I love talking in front of people but I like using my own words!

Too bad I think my teacher's a good-looking old guy =X

I also have a new found love for Rufus Wainwright. His voice is beautiful and make me swoon. Plus, I SWEAR he looks like my boyfriend. And my boyfriend's singing voice is AWFULLY close to Rufus'.

La lune trop bleme pose un diademe sur tes cheveux roux
La lune trop rousse de gloire eclabousse ton jupon plein d'trous
La lune trop pale caresse l'opale de tes yeux blases
Princesse de la rue soit la bienvenue dans mon coeur brise

The stairways up to la butte
Can make the wreched sigh
While windmill wings of the moulin
shelter you and I
