Why didn't I run for president?

And also the fact that I am not old enough to run, no political experience and have no desire to run for president....maybe vice-president.

While shopping for vacation clothes, my husband and I passed a display of bathing suits. It had been at least ten years and twenty pounds since I had even considered buying a bathing suit, so I sought my husband's advice.

'What do you think?' I asked.. 'Should I get a bikini or an all-in-one?'

'Better get a bikini,' he replied 'You'd never get it all in one.'

He's still in intensive care.

This was ganked from [livejournal.com profile] jokes

Hi, since those Friend Frenzys that people are having are working out so well I thought that I should have a Friend Pillow Fight. This Pillow Fight is open to everyone, feel free to send your friends over. Let's get to know each other and hit each other with vitual pillows. :)

The rules of the pillow fight are easy, they are:

Comment to the Pillow Fight entry with a statement in the title that says something you like.
ex. "I like cats." or "I like apple-scented candles."

If you agree with the statement reply to that comment with the title "Hit!".

After that make your own comment to the original entry with something that you like.

What exactly is a Self Cemetary? Do people that are planning to murder people take them there, have them dig the whole and when they are done, they shoot them and then they refill the whole. Do people when they are close to dying just dig the hole, sit with their back to it and fall in when they die?

Maybe the person who the cemetary is named after someone's whose last name was Self? Oh well...

The Fool's Prayer
Edward Rowland Sill

The royal feast was done; the King
Sought some new sport to banish care,
And to his jester cried: "Sir Fool,
Kneel now, and make for us a prayer!"

The jester doffed his cap and bells,
And stood the mocking court before;
They could not see the bitter smile
Behind the painted grin he wore.

He bowed his head, and bent his knee
Upon the monarch's silken stool;
His pleading voice arose: "O Lord,
Be merciful to me, a fool!

"No pity, Lord, could change the heart
From red with wrong to white as wool;
The rod must heal the sin; but Lord,
Be merciful to me, a fool!

" 'Tis not by guilt the onward sweep
Of truth and right, O Lord, we stay;
'Tis by our follies that so long
We hold the earth from heaven away.

"These clumsy feet, still in the mire,
Go crushing blossoms without end;
These hard, well-meaning hands we thrust
Among the heart-strings of a friend.

"The ill-timed truth we might have kept —
Who knows how sharp it pierced and stung?
The word we had not sense to say —
Who knows how grandly it had rung?

"Our faults no tenderness should ask,
The chastening stripes must cleanse them all;
But for our blunders-oh, in shame
Before the eyes of heaven we fall.

"Earth bears no balsam for mistakes;
Men crown the knave, and scourge the tool
That did his will; but Thou, O Lord,
Be merciful to me, a fool!"

The room was hushed; in silence rose
The King, and sought his gardens cool,
And walked apart, and murmured low,
"Be merciful to me, a fool!"

I am going to be using [livejournal.com profile] ilovelibraries2 as another of my blogs, but it will be library related. I will just be posting things there relating to libraries. I will still be posting things here about work and stuff.

I made it as a community, so other people can post things about libraries. The community is open to everyone, only members can post though. Some entries will be members only so you'll need to be a member to read them.

The community dosen't really have much now, just some comics and stuff, I will post more of them when I see them. I am thinking about posting unshelved there each day, but might only end up doing it when I remember. So feel free to join and post things also.

Most of the day I had this song stuck in my head, Taylor Swift's, Jump Then Fall.

Here are the lyrics:

Jump Then Fall Lyrics

I like the way you sound in the morning,
we're on the phone and without a warning
I realize your laugh is the best sound I have ever heard

I like the way I can't keep my focus,
I watch you talk you didn't notice
I hear the words but all I can think is we should be together

(chorus)
every time you smile, I smile
and every time you shine, I'll shine for you

whoa oh I'm feeling you baby
don't be afraid to jump then fall, jump then fall into me

baby, I'm never gonna leave you,
say that you wanna be with me too
cause I'm gonna stay through it all so jump then fall


well I like the way your hair falls in your face
you got the keys to me I love each freckle on your face, oh,
I've never been so wrapped up,
honey, I like the way you're everything I've ever wanted

I had time to think it oh-over and all I can say is come closer,
take a deep breath and jump then fall into me

(chorus)
every time you smile, I smile
and every time you shine, I'll shine for you

whoa oh I'm feeling you baby
don't be afraid to jump then fall, jump then fall into me
http://www.elyricsworld.com/jump_then_fall_lyrics_taylor_swift.html

baby, I'm never gonna leave you,
say that you wanna be with me too
cause I'm gonna stay through it all so jump then fall


the bottoms gonna drop out from under our feet
I'll catch you, I'll catch you
when people say things that bring you to your knees,
I'll catch you
the time is gonna come when you're so mad you could cry
but I'll hold you through the night until you smile

whoa oh I need you baby
don't be afraid please
jump then fall, jump then fall into me


baby, I'm never gonna leave you,
say that you wanna be with me too
cause I'm gonna through it all so jump then fall

jump then fall baby
jump then fall into me, into me

every time you smile, I smile
and every time you shine, I'll shine
and every time you're here baby, I'll show you, I'll show you
you can jump then fall, jump then fall, jump then fall into me, into me

yeah

I am knitting a scarf now...well at least that is the plan. I have a habit of unraveling things and starting anew.

Here is what the scarf looks like so far, I like how the colors of the yarn is making a pattern. The pattern is unintentionall, I am just knitting away. I would like to learn how to make patterns with the yarn. Right now I am using an ombre of blues, white and tan.

Is you toliet paper under or over?

Edit: I have been reading all your commetns about toliet paper being under and over. I personally like over better becuase the paper is easier to grab and it is less messy. If I am at home or someoneone else's house and I notice that it is under I usually find myself fixing it and putting it over.

Under


Over

I've read Catcher in the Rye in High School during Junior year. I thought it was a great book. Holden was a great character. This was one of my favorite books that I read for school and I was thinking about rereading sometime soon.

Here's a song I am dedicating to him. It dosen't have his name mentioned per say but it does have one of his books that he wrote, Catcher in the Rye.

Live Journal will be doing maintance tonight.

This is from [livejournal.com profile] lj_maintenance

Site maintenance scheduled for January 23 @ 3 AM UTC
Hello LJers,

I wanted to keep everyone in the loop on what's been happening in ops-land lately. Over the past week we upgraded the storage system on our global database slave servers. These upgrades provide a number of enhancements, the most important of which is a faster LJ. We were tasked with increasing the throughput of the databases while keeping costs reasonable, and providing a flexible upgrade path. We installed FusionIO ioDrive modules in three of our slave servers and upgraded the version of MySQL they are running. This has translated to much quicker load times, reduced I/O wait (that nasty thing that happens when your hard drives are too slow), and a lot of headroom to add more load. The six ioDrive modules replaced over 100 15k SAS drives, and we are very pleased with their performance overall.

On January 20 we will be upgrading our Perlbal servers. This upgrade provides a critical fix that affects Mogile and scrapbook images. This should help with certain instances where scrapbook photos have become missing. This upgrade is minor, and should be seamless.

We have scheduled a maintenance window for January 23, 2010 at 3 AM GMT/UTC. The window will last for three hours maximum, and LiveJournal.com will not be available. During this time, we will upgrade our Global Master database with FusionIO ioDrives and a newer version of MySQL.

On January 29 we will continue the Mogile upgrades mhwest started in December. We will upgrade the database structure and the software to the most current versions. We anticipate some slowness loading scrapbook images during this time, but the site should continue to run smoothly. These upgrades will provide a more stable service as well as some minor performance increases.

Thanks for reading!
