If you are a dreamer, come in.
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer...
If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire,
For we have some flax golden tales to spin.
Come in!
Come in!



Hi, this is my Livejournal, and in the following post is a list of all the books I own, and ones I'm planning to buy. If you have a suggestion, please post it here : ) .

I like my LiveJournal layout. I really really like it. In order to have it like this, I have to have a Plus account, which means ads. I have them blocked. For a simple (I hope) walkthrough on how to block these ads yourself, check out this entry.




The following is a list of all the books I own, and a list of those I want to get, and a list of books suggested to me.
If you know of any books you think I should get, please, please suggest them here. I like suggestions.

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, nonaddictive, gender neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practised with the most enjoyable traditions of religious persuasion or secular practises of your choice with respect for the religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practise religious or secular traditions at all.

I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2010, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make our country great (not to imply that it is necessarily greater than any other country) and without regard to the race, creed, colour, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual orientation of the wishee.

By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms:

This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for her/himself or others and is void where prohibited by law, and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher.

Disclaimer: No trees were harmed in the sending of this message; however, a significant number of electrons were slightly inconvenienced.

I was going to tweet these, but I wouldn't be able to detail dreams 2 or 3 enough. And here I was going to a year without a new comment.

Remember flying a kite as a child and getting it stuck in a tree despite the wind blowing the other direction? Or maybe you hanging a shirt or towel down on a branch only to turn around and find it gone? Did you ever think it might be something more... sinister? Don't worry, it's not just you.

The arbourus deltivorus, or North American Kite-Eating Tree, can be found throughout the prairies and the midwestern United States. They are exceptionally sturdy trees, due partly to their diet, and have round leaves that fall in late autumn.

Like other carnivorous plants, the Kite-Eating Tree consumes nutrients beyond what most other plants do, and beyond what photosynthesis alone provides. It is, however, different from other carnivorous plants; instead of eating insects, the Kite-Eating Tree ingests cloths and other fabrics.

The Kite-Eating Tree is curious in that it grows in two different stages and uses a different food source in each stage. In the spring, it uses the energy it gets from the sun to sprout buds and leaves, but throughout the summer it will strengthen its trunk and branches by digesting fibres.

Similar to sundews and other 'flypaper' plants, the Kite-Eating Tree has thin tentacles that retract to trap their prey. The tentacles are thin, light, nearly invisible (though you may be able to distinguish them by squinting), and are held aloft by the slightest breeze. Upon contact with any woven material they gently pull the fabric toward the main body of the tree where it is consumed.

The Kite-Eating Tree a the natural enemy of spiders as it will devour their webs, sometimes catching the spiders at the same time. While generally preying only on fabrics, in hard times they have been known to known to eat the nests of birds, and even those of paper wasps, although paper consumption is more commonly associated with the tree's cousin, cathaeus deltivorus.

Sister is playing Wii fit. She is taking physical fitness classes stuff in university. It's telling her all stuff she already knows and she's getting mad at the little chibi Wii board on the screen.

Then it told her her Wii Fit age was 32. She wasn't impressed by that. Mom and I laughed. :)

Then she did the first deep breathing exercise under yoga. She came in third on the high scores.
Me: "I'm better at breathing than you!"
Her: "Oh yeah, well I got third on my first try!"
Mr: "Yeah, well I got first on my first try."

Now the tree pose. I've been standing and leaning on my leg in that pose for years without knowing I was inadvertently doing yoga. Go figure.

She just beat my best score in ski jump by 2 and my tightrope walk by 1. Tch. On the bright side, she got constantly smacked in the head by shoes in the football/soccer goalie game.

Now she's doing the step thing. She didn't get that the blue ones were both to the same side so wa scrambling to get her fet in the right spots for a while, including much crossleggedness.

And now I have to go. Sister will likely be playing Wii Fit all night or until she gets too mad at the thing for being stupid.

I've been rather deprived of internets the last few days.
Saturday I worked all day, so was only on a bit in the evening.
Sunday was moving back home day, so I was moving heavy things into the van, shopping (one store in Brandon actually had some Wii fits so I finally got one), then riding in said van for four hours.
Monday I spent cleaning out my room. Most of the stuff in my room was garbage old papers or broken toys or generally things that needed to be garbaged. Cleaned everything out so now I have room in my room. Then, moved everything out of the van and upstairs to my room and put it all away.
This morning was spent setting up the TV, Wii, and Laptop stuffs as well as getting the router going. I had to buy a new router because my dad is convinced the old one is messing up the internet connection when it's actually just him messing up the internet connection. Finally I have everything done and I can rest. Yay. *collapse*
