Forever (A poem about love)

Forever is a very long time
In the beginning of Forever
When the stars high above
Did not yet shine
My love began

Forever is a very long time
When the dust of the explosions
Still settled in empty space
When skies were born
My love was young

Forever is a very long time
When humanity was new
Painted horses danced
In the firelight
My love was bright

Forever is a very long time
In the ancient cities
Where math first lived
As new ideas
My love multiplied

Forever is a very long time
When castles had hard stone walls
When kings ruled
All they could see
My love grew vast and strong

Forever is a very long time
When new ideas were abundant
In Victoria's time
A time of finches
My love evolved

Forever is a very long time
When buildings scraped the sky
When lines were
Made useless
My love flew through the air

Forever is a very long time
Four billion years from today
When the sun grows cold
When life is dead
My love for you will endure


What do you think? I really like this one. But, it combines love, poetry, history, and I get to talk about space.

Now, as this updates automatically, I am on an six hour plane trip.  Why, you may ask. Well, because.

But seriously, we'll be visiting my aunt who I haven't seen since my birthday, and I haven't seen Potato for two years.

(By the way, I made a tumblr! Its where I'll post interesting or strange things my friends have said, along with stuff i think is cool. The URL is worse-than-tonks.tumblr.com, because Dragonchild upon seeing me with blue streaks in my hair a while back stated, "It's blue now! you're worse than Tonks!")

GUESS THAT EXCUSE!!!!

Hey, remember me? I'm that girl who posts on this blog? Anyways, you know what time it is?


"GUESS! THAT! EXCUSSSSSEEEEE!"
That's what my life would be like if I had a studio audience.

Jimmy: 
Howdy there! My name is Jimmy James! Alrighty folks, today we have quite the excuse for you! to guess! We'll show you the clues, and you tell us why you think Lady Elisabeth hasn't been writing. Let's get started! Here's your first clue:


Jimmy: Okay, anybody want to guess yet?

BZZZRP!

Jimmy: 
Mary Sue?

Mary Sue:
 Oooh! Oooh! Ooh! She quit blogging to pursue a career in acupuncture!

Jimmy:
 I'm sorry, that is incorrect! 

BZZRP!

Jimmy: 
Yes, Brick!

Brick: 
Maybe she ate a chicken?

Jimmy: 
Uh, no... Maybe you guys need another clue!







BZZRP!

Brick: 
Her turtles... uh... needed to... uh... pee?

Jimmy: 
Not quite! Sorry there Brick.

BZZZRP!

Jimmy:

Mary Sue: 
Her cousin the acupuncturist stubbed a toe?

Jimmy: 
Not even close! Okay, let's show the third and final clue...


Jimmy: Any guesses?

BZZZZZZRP!

Brick:
 Some guy with hair like Mitt Romney's foot got electrocuted?

Jimmy: 
AHHH! So close!

BBZZZZZRRPP!

Mary Sue: 
Some guy with hair slightly like Mitt Romney's foot got electrocuted while recieving acupuncture from Zeus!

Jimmy: 
Way off.

BZZZZZRP!

Elisabeth: 
Her right pinky metatarsal is edema-ed and really painful so she has to wear a hideous surgical shoe while on vacation next week!

Jimmy: 
WILL YOU LOOK AT THAT! SHE'S GOT IT!

Nerdfighteria



I'm proud to be a Nerdfighter for many many reasons. The greatest reason is because of the fantastic community that comes with it. I met on wednesday my newest friend and my first IRL nerdfighter. Literally an hour after meeting we were mutually squee-ing about the movie version of The Fault In Our Stars that is coming At Some Point.

Seriously, in the middle of a crowded supermarket. Then she watched me and our other two friends eat a barbecue potato chip chocolate bar. (She just moved to our area from England, so it was kind of a "welcome to America" moment) Unfortunately, barbecue potato chip chocolate is hugely nasty.

Of course, the internet is where Nerdfighteria is primarily based. I mean, just do a quick google search! I've personally not gotten much out of the nerdfighter ning (although I do have a profile). 

I surprisingly find my fellow nerdfighters on GifBoom. Yes, it's pretty much instagram with gifs, and the #nerd hashtag does have a LOT of "nerds" and hipsters-who-think-they're-nerds. But I've found that I am not the only nerdfighter on GifBoom. Plus I started my own hashtag (#realnerds) to differentiate from said "nerds" and hipsters-who-think-they're-nerds.

dftba, Lady E!!!!
