"The Time has come, " the Walrus said,


"To talk of many things:

Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--

Of cabbages--and kings--

And why the sea is boiling hot--

And whether pigs have wings."


*Sunshine*

I won't be blogging for a while, so Happy Holidays and catch you on the other side in 2007!


Sunshine - Lupe Fiasco

Uh, Fresh to def she is
From her steps ta the set she is
So "death" might not let me live
The orchestra in my mind dont play like this (naw),
But I'm prepared for it
Got a lil rare for it
Brushed off my airs
Even cut my hair for it
Cause normally I dont care for it
Dont even be lookin for like, like that
Then there go it
Yea right over there so I prepare the poet
Lil scared my stair lowered
Momma said have no fear
Plus I'm already outta my chair
God love my airs on my square from here forward
It's nuthen right so here go it
Whisper in the air "its kinda crowded in here"
Would she care to blow it she said "yea"

[chorus]
Your my sunshine (your my sunshine),
Your my moonlight (your my moonlight),
Your the starry skies above me wont you please come down and hug me,
Cause I found love in this girl tonight (Wowowowo)

Never met her before
But I think I like her like a metaphor
It's hard ta get in the car we sit
From the intro she rolled down her window just in case some was a skit
So I compliment her on the common sense
I'm calm
A lil more confident (Uh Huh)
And then we lose consciousness

She says "that I've been waiten for you"
And I know you been chasing me too since they kidnapped me from a castle
I been thinken of you
I told a firebreathen dragon "he bet not harm me" or he be sorry when he meets my one man army
And thou has come ta rescue me
My knight in shinen armor yes you be
Woken up by the horn of an SUV
I said "see, too beautiful to let you sleep"

[chorus]

Relationship is just 30 minutes long
It's kinda heavy maybe a lil strong
"Go and take" much more than once
Can't trust what each of us say at least for a month
Or two before I bid you a due
Do this one thing for me
outta the trillions of numbers thats in the world
Just leave me a few that lead to you

Won't be longin I see you in the morning

[chorus]

Waiting...



These days i find i am waiting...with bated breath, just waiting! I've never been good with suspense but it seems that this is one thing i cannot rush and will just have to wait out..ever so patiently. All this waiting reminds me of Samuel Beckett's play "Waiting for Godot" where the main character doesn't even pitch up, urggggh! It also reminds me of an excerpt from one of my favourite poems, "Oh the places you will go" by Dr Seuss...let me share the bit about waiting with you....


...for people just waiting.
Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come,
or a plane to go or the mail to come,
or the rain to go or the phone to ring,
or the snow to snow
or waiting around for a Yes or a No
or waiting for their hair to grow.
Everyone is just waiting.

Waiting for the fish to bite
or waiting for wind to fly a kite
or waiting around for Friday night
or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake

or a pot to boil, or a Better Break
or a sting of pearls, or a pair of pants
or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.
Everyone is just waiting
.


I find it rather tiring all this waiting, but at the same time i find myself all giddy over "the unknown", right now there are so many possibilities, it's rather exhilirating....and there is nothing to do but wait....wait....wait....wait.

Tis the season to be jolly.....


To say that this festive season has started with a bang is the biggest understatement ever! Take for instance the high incidence of people indulging in after work drinks...nothing new right, WRONG. I'm talking about your usual watering hole being chokker block on a random Tuesday night. It starts off with the usual peer pressure,"C'mon Vim, lets go and have just one" and 5 rounds later, well....you know the drill!


Besides the boost in social activities and alcohol intake, this is my favourite time of the year for so many other reasons! Primarily because of what the holiday stands for ie; family, reconciliation, celebration and all things good!


I am little too old to expect Santa to hook me up with the latest model something because i've been a good girl all year *snigger snigger*, but i won't lie, come Christmas morning i'll wake up with all the expectation and hope of a 6 year old.
Tis the season to be jolly indeed :-)

Clueless

So i have this huge 4hr exam this Saturday (hence the lack of blogging posts) and i feel absolutely CLUELESS!!!! Clearly, not wanting to dwell on frustating topics such as exams-i-havent-really-studied-for led me down a path of nostalgia. My favourite teeny-boppy movie back in the 90's was without a doubt, hands down CLUELESS!!!

I had this absolutely cute Clueless jpeg but Blogger is being difficult so i'll update it another day! Anywho, now Clueless is based on one of my favourite books by Jane Austen, "Emma" so when i watched this flick it was love at first sight! Back then listening to the dialogue was a carthatic experience, all the slang sounded new, who could forget the abuse of the word "Whatever".

Yes, it wasn't the deepest flick on the earth, but it was and still is one of my most entertaining!

To access the complete script, just click on http://www.geocities.com/Hollywood/Hills/5342/Clueless.htm

But here are a few of my favourite quotes:

Cher: Here's where Dionne lives. She's my friend because we both know what it's like to have people be jealous of us.

Cher V.O.: I don't know why Dionne is going out with a high school boy. They're like dogs. You have to clean them and feed them and they're just like these nervous creatures that jump and slobber all over you.

Amber: Mr. Hall, how can I answer that? The topic is Haiti and she's talking about some little party.

Dionne: Uh, no, Miss Stoeger? I have a note from my tennis instructor, and he would prefer it if I didn't expose myself to any training that might derail his teachings.

MURRAY (to Dionne)
Woman, lend me five dollars.
DIONNE
Murray, I have asked you repeatedly not to call me Woman!
MURRAY
Excuse me, Miss Dionne.
DIONNE
Thank you.
MURRAY
OK, but street slang is an increasingly valid form of expression. Most of the feminine pronouns do have mocking, but not necessarily in a misogynistic undertone.

JOSH
Mel, I wanna help out Mel. He's the only one who cares about me.
CHER
That's not true.
JOSH
He's not? Are you saying you care about me?
CHER
Josh.


Okay there are so many others, but i'm too lazy to look through the entire script...enough procrastinating, i'm gonna go!

Wish me luck for my exam *eeeeeeeeeeeeeeek*
