Eleven Months


Here I am, it’s christmas time,
The panic’s setting in.
No presents bought and not a thought,
Of how I can begin.

The wife’s worn down her finger nails,
Is worried half to death.
I’m nagged of course, she’s shouted horse,
And constant out of breath.

Can’t understand that I don’t care,
That nothing has been done.
To off and go and spend our dough,
On the daughter and the son.

He that can’t get off his arse,
And force him self to shop.
To stop and think, and beer not drink,
Buy mum that purple top.

Consider what his sister wants,
Or what to buy for dad.
Oh the strain, the strain, he’s now in pain,
The thought just makes him mad.

Couldn’t stand the crowds says he,
Heads straight back to his room.
Back on the net, with no regret,
Music turned to sonic boom.

She wonders why I always claim,
There’s no month that starts with “D”.
With no December, just remember
What a peaceful time there’d be !!!!

I chose this poem because it’s really emphasizing how hectic the holidays can be. Especially with Black Friday just passing, everyone is always panicking trying to figure what perfect gift they can find at the cheapest price for the holidays. People make a very big deal out of shopping for Christmas and sometimes they take it too seriously, but I guess they do it out of love and to get a great deal so they don’t spend too much money. What the author is trying to convey is that some people take shopping for Christmas very seriously, while others just don’t care or are too lazy to get up and go shopping and that if there was no December, things would be so peaceful. I agree completely but I actually like the thought of giving gifts and receiving them no matter how hectic it can get to go shopping.

Keeping up with the Kardashians, one of my favorite tv shows. It features this family and how they cope through everything in life. But I think you can sum up everything and pretty much everybody through this picture. For instance, just looking at how everyone is dressed, you can tell this isn’t a normal family. Everyone, except the father/stepfather, is all glits and glam. Even the little girls are wearing sparkly tops. Not to mention, its day time and they are all wearing cocktail attire. The whole family looks out of place in front of the nice beautiful big family home, and i think that is exactly what the photographer wanted. He wanted the family to stand out because that is exactly how they are in everyday life. I really do love this family, I think they are real with each other, something that is really hard for families. Although they say and do things I sometimes don’t agree with , I still think they are fantastic!

I’ve only seen this show a few times but it is a really good reality show. I like reality TV shows because you get a chance to see the everyday lives of your favorite celebrities. One of the episodes that I particularly liked and the one that I have seen recently is the episode where Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian (the girl on the far right) got married and how they set up the wedding so quickly so they could get married after being together for 3 months. Yea it was romantic and sweet, but that definitely was not enough time to get married to someone. She barely knew him! But that’s how celebs can be. I still like the show though and when I get a chance to watch it, my eyes are glued to the TV!

Love Of A Lifetime

I knew from the beginning of time,
That we’d be together forever.
Some say love isn’t worth a dime,
But the love that we have, proves it all wrong.
Ever since you’ve been a part of my life,
I’ve come to see that I want to be your wife.
You’d do anything for me.
So whenever you feel the time is right,
Feel free to get down on one knee,
And say the words that sound oh, so right.
In front of our family and friends,
We say those sacred words.
Starting our lives together,
We have waited so long.
Our love is so strong for each other,
We decide to have a family together.
Whether it be a boy or a girl,
May it be the most beautiful miracle.
She will have the cutest little curls,
And he will have his Daddy’s little grin.
He will attract one special girl,
Like you did me when we were so young,
Which was such a long time ago.
The kids are all grown up now.
We’ve grown old, but our fire still burns.
We look back on what a wonderful life we shared,
Wonderful kids, and now wonderful grandchildren.
Life couldn’t be any better…
We have lived the love of a lifetime.

The reason I chose this poem is because me and my boyfriend just celebrated our 2 year anniversary 3 weeks ago. It reminds me of us because we have a love of a lifetime. Maybe our life will end up like this and we will grow old together and have many memories of the special times we have shared. What I think the author was trying to convey in this poem is how special love can be and is showing the different steps in her and her loved ones lives and how the love between the two of them lasted a lifetime. I love this poem because it’s so sweet and makes me think about me and my boyfriend and I hope I will be able to say the same thing years from now and hope that our love will last a lifetime.

Paint Brush

I keep my paint brush with me
Wherever I may go,
In case I need to cover up
So the real me doesn’t show
I’m so afraid to show you me,
Afraid of what you’ll do—that
You might laugh or say mean things.
I’m afraid I might lose you.

I’l dike to remove all my paint coats
To show you the real, true me,
But I want you to try and understand,
I need you to accept what you see.
So if you’ll be patient and close your eyes.
I’ll strip off all my coats real slow.
Please understand how much it hurts
To let the real me show.

Now my coats are all stripped off.
I feel naked, bare and cold,
And if you still love me with all that you see,
You are my friend, pure as gold.

I need to save my paint brush, though,
And hold it in my hand,
I want to keep it handy
In case somebody doesn’t understand.
So please protect me, my dear friend
And thanks for loving me true,
But please let me keep my paintbrush with me
Until I love me, too.

After reading this poem, I really liked it. It’s about someone who wears makeup to feel beautiful about their self. The way society is today, it makes women feel like the only way to be beautiful is to wear makeup to cover up “imperfections.” Women should never feel so ugly that they have to hide their true selves behind foundation, mascara, and rouge. Towards the end of the poem, she finally takes her makeup off to see if the person she is with will truly love her for her, but she says that she will need to save her paint brush in case someone doesn’t understand the way she looks and if that happens, she will hide behind the makeup again.

This video is about a guy named Colin Ferguson who murdered six people and injured nineteen others on the Long Island Rail Road in Garden City, New York on December 7, 1993. The reason I chose to post this video is because it reminded me of the people that were killed at Fort Hood because of a psychopath who snapped when they didn’t want to do something, when things didn’t go their way or they didn’t go as planned. In this particular video though, I believe the author is trying to convey that there are some really crazy people in the world, just like Colin Ferguson. He was crazy enough to defend his own case and said that he didn’t commit those crimes. It’s amazing to see how many people out there are completely crazy and would do things like taking innocent peoples’ lives. I surely hate that this happened to these people and those at Fort Hood and I really wish it was a way to stop it, but most likely it’s not.

I decided to post this video because I heard there was a lot of controversy about the whole Chris Brown and Rihanna situation. Rihanna is finally coming out about what happened the night that Chris Brown beat her in this interview with Diane Sawyer on 20/20. She speaks about how he was her best friend and that they fell in love so fast and then one night all of that changed in an instance. The whole fight was over a text message that Chris Brown received and Rihanna says she confronted him about it because she caught him in a lie and that’s when he snapped because she said she wouldn’t drop it. Anyway, what the author is trying to convey in this interview is that it is not ok to experience domestice violence in any relationship and no matter how “in love” you are, it’s still not ok. As Rihanna says, “F*** love.” Love shouldn’t be the reason why you take abuse from your husband, brother or any significant other.

Week 7

Last week I went and saw Paranormal Activity in theatres and I literally was gripping the seat I was so scared. It was really intense. The movie is about a girl who is haunted by something in her house and she cannot ever get away from it. Every night it shows up in their house and something creepy happens. The writer did a very good job at portraying the creativity and scariness of this movie. It differs from most other scary movies and it really freaked me out. I was even thinking about it almost the rest of the day. I suggest everyone go and see it!

I decided to re-blog kristas-09 post because I actually saw Paranormal Activity twice! And it was still scary both times. I loved the movie and I’m considering buying it when it comes out on DVD. This really was a different type of horror movie because when you think of scary movies, you think of slasher films or some serial killer breaking into your home and there is nowhere to escape or something really bloody and gory, but this movie was definitely different and actually believable and I suggest that those who have not seen it, should really see it because it’s not a waste of money!

I decided to post this video because it’s getting close to Halloween and I wanted to post something scary. I’ve seen this video several times and for those who have not seen it, enjoy. I think what the author is trying to portray is that some things can be very unnatural and are not easy to explain. It’s weird that the person driving was driving so crazy and was still able to control the car. You would think that all the swerving and jerking of the car would cause the driver to lose control, but he never did. I’m not sure if anyone else noticed it, but i most certainly did. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this video and Happy Halloween!!!
