I'm back! So, I think 1.36 doesn't sound anything like what you would expect from Coldplay, but I still really like it. I like I ran away even more. For some reason, I felt like they sounded sort of like the Beatles in this one. Am I the only one that thinks this? But really, I think that I Bloom, Blaum is my favorite, so beautiful. I wonder why these songs aren't more well-known?

I found my watch!
Listening to Coldplay all the time
Men who go running with their shirts off (well, the ones with nice bodies anyway). Honestly, they are a gift from God.
That someone I love will die
That I will be in some horrible car wreck and not die, but be paralyzed or otherwise injured for life.
That my whole world will come crashing down and I will end up back where I was, frozen by anxiety and depression.
Figure out a career plan for myself
Own my own home
3 Current Obsessions/Collections
I guess everyone knows I have quite the cross stitch collection
Also, I have a lot of scrapbook stuff
And, yeah, notice the song of the day? Uh huh, Coldplay is my big obsession right now.
Facts about myself
My blood type is O, but I don't know if I'm positive or negative! (need to look in my scrapbook to find that one out)
My ears are pierced but I almost never wear earrings (or any jewelry for that matter)
I toss and turn constantly at night and always have

And, for those interested, a comment about why Chris seems so much more appealing in these performances with the long sleeve white shirt. It could be the short haircut, it could be the beard, it could be how old he was, but, I'm really thinking it's mostly the shirt, or...oops, I was about to go into too much embarrassing detail. You get the picture.

A Line-Storm Song
The line-storm clouds fly tattered and swift.
The road is forlorn all day,
Where a myriad snowy quartz stones lift,
And the hoof-prints vanish away.
The roadside flowers, too wet for the bee,
Expend their bloom in vain.
Come over the hills and far with me,
And be my love in the rain.
The birds have less to say for themselves
In the wood-world's torn despair
Than now these numberless years the elves,
Although they are no less there:
All song of the woods is crushed like some
Wild, earily shattered rose.
Come, be my love in the wet woods, come,
Where the boughs rain when it blows.
There is the gale to urge behind
And bruit our singing down,
And the shallow waters aflutter with wind
From which to gather your gown.
What matter if we go clear to the west,
And come not through dry-shod?
For wilding brooch shall wet your breast
The rain-fresh goldenrod.
Oh, never this whelming east wind swells
But it seems like the sea's return
To the ancient lands where it left the shells
Before the age of the fern;
And it seems like the time when after doubt
Our love came back amain.
Oh, come forth into the storm and rout
And be my love in the rain.
And, on a note of loss, I have never found my book of Robert Frost's complete poems (well, it was actually Dad's, but I stole it, and now it's lost forever! It's so sad!). I rather suspect that it was somewhere in the Geo when I sold it to the mechanic and I got my stuff out of the car, but must have left that (since it went with me on the camping trip that weekend and I haven't seen it since. No doubt, it is not being appreciated if anyone has even found it. That is so sorrowful.) I guess I will have to buy some other version of his complete poems. I hardly want to settle for a paperback version, though. Hmm. Maybe I will look into this.

Back to the books. It's actually very ironic that I like these books so much. My friend who has read them gets frustrated with the characters, but me? Nope. Not one iota. Even though the vampire is a very controlling boyfriend, fine by me (well, I wish he weren't, but I just let that slide and go right ahead wanting them to be together). Does a normal person need to be lifted into the car when there's ABSOLUTELY NOTHING wrong with them? No, but, that's just how things work in this book and I take it all in and the feminist in me does not come out. You would think I would be tearing the story to shreds for all of the romance novel cliches it falls into, yet I don't, I eagerly turn the page wanting more.
You are welcome to laugh at me. I don't care, as long as this lady keeps writing these books, and they continue to be good like they have been, I will gladly be laughed at.
Anyway, for those of you who do read the books, I do have a couple of opinions to share on the few issues the book raises. First, should she pick Jacob or Edward? Both. I like the idea of her having both of them and it anguishing them and her every step of the way (or not, if they could live with that arrangement). Second, should she become a vampire? No. I understand her wanting to be with Edward forever, but I think the love story there will suffer once there isn't that tension of "is he going to suck the blood right out of her and make her undead" and also, even if she's just living off the blood of mountain lions and bears, I think she should stick to a human diet (um, as in, not drinking blood, not as in drinking human blood). Sure, she will age and Edward won't and it will soon disgust society that he's with an old woman, but I think that's part of the appeal of their love story: that it is rather impossible for them to live happily every after (I just don't think her becoming a vampire is a 'happily ever after' ending, really). Um, yeah, that's really the only issues the book raises. Oh well, I guess I think that if she does get her vampire wish, that the werewolf pack should stick to the idea of punishing the Cullens for breaking the treaty by biting a human. It might have a tragic end, but I kind of want Edward and Jacob to face off in the end (enough of the posturing already! well, not really enough of that, but in the end, do have them face off). Also, I do like it when the heroine actually takes actions that the other characters don't want her to take. Have her go through with one of her drastic ideas, however stupid, I rather like it and the problems it would cause. Make them scramble or have her suffer terribly, whatever, that is something I would like the author to do more (she did a good job of it in the 2nd book, but only did it once or twice in the third. When she had that sharp stone ready to slice her hand, she should have done it, rather than just Edward noticing that she was going to. Ugh. Please, follow through on these things.)
That's all, for now. Until I read the fourth book and have to wait a year (hopefully no longer) for the fifth book.
