brookfield zoo and poetry

so i visited brookfield zoo and got to see the great bear wilderness. the reason i bring this up for i posted a while ago about the poetry instillation exhibit that is there. i finally got to see it and it was amazing.  the poems were picked perfectly for the different parts of the zoo they were in. and i just thought i would share the photos of the different poems that were there. sorry some of them are hard to read.


so anyone who knows me, knows how i can't stand the twilight books. i'm sorry i just don't like them. or the movies. and so when i saw this image i just knew i had to share it with everyone.

people of earth...

saw this on youtube today. knew i had to share it with everyone. shows the power of words. shows the power of images. shows the power of music. put all three amazing things together and you get something as moving as this.

"i quit WoW, renewed my library card and created my own list of RL quests to tackle on this summer!"
and then he had this picture:

i heart drizzt

so today (sunday) was amazing for as i was driving home someone yelled out their car window to me, "i love your bumper sticker!" i yelled back - knowing they were talking to me - "which one?" they answered "i love drizzt!" i hollered and even raised my arm out of the car in excitement. and their car was filled with people and they all yelled it out at the same time. it was amazing. it made my day. i just love when people recognize the nerdy fantasy literature bumper stickers i have. hehe. and for those of your who haven't seen my car, here's a picture.

my car today has a couple more bumper stickers, but you get the idea. hehe.

stand up for truth

i found this and thought i'd share it with all of you. in case you can't read this, it says:
"doesn't matter what the press says. doesn't matter what the politicians or the mobs say. doesn't matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is right. the nation was founded on one principle above all else: the requirement that we stand up for what we believe. no matter the odds or the consequences. when the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world - 'NO YOU MOVE'.

2 years

today marks two years for me posting on this blog. i can't believe it. i've been slacking a little bit lately, but i'm back (from outerspace) and ready to go. these last two years have been fun/hard/challenging/totally awesome. thanks for joining on my ride and lets see where the next year takes me (and you since your reading this. hehe).
