seventythree: time wasters

so, i don't have much new news to report, i have not taken any new pictures, and i have not read/seen anything interesting. since i have very little to share, here are some of the new places i have found to waste my time on the computer:
***mtv's the real world is currently filming in dc. much of the city is against these newcomers, but i am fascinated by them. i think i have a not-so-secret desire to become a member of a future real world house. of course, i might be too old to be one of them. anyway, one of the neighbors of dc's real world house has started a blog: the anti-real world dc.
***spotted: dc summer interns is another great blog. different people contribute stories (most of them hilarious) about the escapades of young interns around town. i don't find the influx of interns in the summer quite as annoying as many of the posters, but i do appreciate their antics.
***for good celebrity gossip and other girly things i love going to the frisky.
***i heart the office and i super heart mindy kaling. she is really funny and has a really clever sense of humor. i wish she updated her blog things i bought that i love more often, but she doesn't.

seventyone: you shall above all things be glad and young

i love e.e. cummings. here is one of my favorite poems by him:

you shall above all things be glad and young
for if you're young, whatever life you wear

it will become you;and if you are glad
whatever's living will yourself become.
girlboys may nothing more than boygirls need:
i can entirely her only love

whose any mystery makes any man's
flesh put space on;and his mind take off time

that you should ever think,may god forbid
and (in this mercy) your true lover spare:
for that way knowledge lies,the foetal grave
called progress,and negation's dead undoom.

i'd rather learn from one bird how to sing
than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance.

-e.e. cummings

seventy: i have too many beads

i have not posted in a while, essentially because i have been busy watching 90210 reruns (that is what i am doing right now). i was never allowed to watch it when i was younger, so now i watch it whenever i get the chance. it is a not-so-guilty pleasure of mine.
earlier today i cleaned up my craft room and assessed my collection of beads. i love my beads and i love getting
new ones, but i am beginning to think that i should stay away from purchasing any new beads in the near future. it took me quite a while to get everything properly organized (by color and/or size), but now that they are arranged i like to look at my great organizational accomplishment.
