Today is the big day, I will be setting out for my cruise. I will be going to Bermuda via the Norwegian Dawn with my sister for a week. The cruise will be from today til next Sunday.

We will have a room with a port hole. It was between a port hole or a window with an obstructured view. The obstructured view by the way would be a lifeboat. We chose the port hole, becuase we didn't want ot be seeing a lifeboat for a week. However, it would of been a really good way to see if there was any problem on the ship. I can imagine the conversation.

Naomi: Hey I see people getting in the lifeboats
Me: I guess we better start heading up now.

In case you are wondering I am sending this post through LetterMeLater, where I am able to schedule emails to be sent. I just happen to be setting these emails to update my Live Journal/Dreamwidth ahead of time. So if you get more updates from me and are wondering, hey how can she be updating her blog, I thought she didn't have internet access, that is why.

Well anyway... my dad is planning on taking us to the ship. We are planning on taking the bus to the train (hmmm...maybe my dad can drive us to the train station), then take the train and when we get to our stop take a cab. The train to the port where the ship departs is walkable but since we are carrying luggage with us, we though that this would be the easiest choice.

There is this website that I discovered today it it called LetterMeLater, which is a service where you can send emails a t a set time in the future. You can also email yourself reminders.

I am planning on using that service when I post things for when I am away on my cruise. I will not have access to the computer that week. Well....actually I can get access to the computer while on the cruise but it will be expensive, so I will just be taking a break from the internet, computer and telephone.

This is one of my favorite Facebook statuses, which one of my friends just posted:

With time, women gain weight because we accumulate so much information & wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room, it distributes out to the rest of our bodies. So we aren't heavy, we're enormously cultured, educated, wise and happy. Beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror I'll think, Good grief, look how smart I am!

There is a group on Facebook called, My girlfriend will Marry me if i get 1000000 fans on this page!!!

Ok....would you really want to marry someone that would base their answer on how many people he can get to fan that page.

I hope that he is just saying that to get people to fan it and not becuase it is actually true.

And if the group is true...I wonder what she will want him to do later on in their marriage if they actually do get married.

Since we are in the computer age, some people need to be reminded of what a book is. Please read, to get reaquainted with the book.

Announcing the New Built-in Orderly Organized Knowledge Device, Otherwise Known as the BOOK!

It's a revolutionary breakthrough in technology: no wires, no electric circuits, no batteries, nothing to be connected or switched on. It's so easy to use even a child can operate it. Just life its cover. Compact and portable, it can be used anywhere--even sitting in an armchair by the fire--yet it is powerful enough to hold as much information as a CD-ROM.

Here's how it works: each BOOK is constructed of sequentially numbered sheets of paper (recyclable), each capable of holding thousands of bits of information. These pages are locked together with a custom-fit device called a binder which keeps the sheets in their correct sequence. By using both sides of each sheet, manufacturers are able to cut costs in half.

Each sheet is scanned optically, registering information directly into your brain. A flick of the finger takes you to the next sheet. The book may be taken up at any time and used by merely opening it. The "browse" feature allows you to move instantly to any sheet, and move forward and backward as you wish. Most come with an "index" feature, which pinpoints the exact location of any selected information for instant retrieval.

An optional "BOOKmark" accessory allows you to open the BOOK to the exact place you left it in a previous session--even if the BOOK has been closed. BOOKmarks fit universal design standards; thus a single BOOKmark can be used in BOOKs by various manufacturers.

Portable, durable and affordable, the BOOK is the entertainment wave of the future, an many new titles are expected soon, due to the surge in popularity of its programming tool, the Portable Erasable-Nib Cryptic Intercommunication Language Stylus...

Hi everyone!

I am not really sure what to do with my Dreamwidth account. Maybe I will use it to post library things and the like.

So far now I am planning on closing my I Love Libraries community on Live Journal and post things here. Let's see what happens.

What exactly is a Self Cemetary? Do people that are planning to murder people take them there, have them dig the whole and when they are done, they shoot them and then they refill the whole. Do people when they are close to dying just dig the hole, sit with their back to it and fall in when they die?

Maybe the person who the cemetary is named after someone's whose last name was Self? Oh well...

The Fool's Prayer
Edward Rowland Sill

The royal feast was done; the King
Sought some new sport to banish care,
And to his jester cried: "Sir Fool,
Kneel now, and make for us a prayer!"

The jester doffed his cap and bells,
And stood the mocking court before;
They could not see the bitter smile
Behind the painted grin he wore.

He bowed his head, and bent his knee
Upon the monarch's silken stool;
His pleading voice arose: "O Lord,
Be merciful to me, a fool!

"No pity, Lord, could change the heart
From red with wrong to white as wool;
The rod must heal the sin; but Lord,
Be merciful to me, a fool!

" 'Tis not by guilt the onward sweep
Of truth and right, O Lord, we stay;
'Tis by our follies that so long
We hold the earth from heaven away.

"These clumsy feet, still in the mire,
Go crushing blossoms without end;
These hard, well-meaning hands we thrust
Among the heart-strings of a friend.

"The ill-timed truth we might have kept —
Who knows how sharp it pierced and stung?
The word we had not sense to say —
Who knows how grandly it had rung?

"Our faults no tenderness should ask,
The chastening stripes must cleanse them all;
But for our blunders-oh, in shame
Before the eyes of heaven we fall.

"Earth bears no balsam for mistakes;
Men crown the knave, and scourge the tool
That did his will; but Thou, O Lord,
Be merciful to me, a fool!"

The room was hushed; in silence rose
The King, and sought his gardens cool,
And walked apart, and murmured low,
"Be merciful to me, a fool!"

I am going to be using [ profile] ilovelibraries2 as another of my blogs, but it will be library related. I will just be posting things there relating to libraries. I will still be posting things here about work and stuff.

I made it as a community, so other people can post things about libraries. The community is open to everyone, only members can post though. Some entries will be members only so you'll need to be a member to read them.

The community dosen't really have much now, just some comics and stuff, I will post more of them when I see them. I am thinking about posting unshelved there each day, but might only end up doing it when I remember. So feel free to join and post things also.

Here a few pics from my trip to Boston from this weekend.

These two pics are from the JFK Museum and Library:

This is a vote for JFK sticker. They gave it to everyone to wear to show that they paid admission into the museum. I liked this sticker so much and didn't want to risk losing it so I put it on my cell phone holder.

This is a picture of Boston Harbor from the JFK Museum and LIbrary Promanade Deck. It was rainign really hard that day.

Last and not least is a picture from the MIT Science Museum.

This is a picture of Kismet the robot.

Most of the day I had this song stuck in my head, Taylor Swift's, Jump Then Fall.

Here are the lyrics:

Jump Then Fall Lyrics

I like the way you sound in the morning,
we're on the phone and without a warning
I realize your laugh is the best sound I have ever heard

I like the way I can't keep my focus,
I watch you talk you didn't notice
I hear the words but all I can think is we should be together

every time you smile, I smile
and every time you shine, I'll shine for you

whoa oh I'm feeling you baby
don't be afraid to jump then fall, jump then fall into me

baby, I'm never gonna leave you,
say that you wanna be with me too
cause I'm gonna stay through it all so jump then fall

well I like the way your hair falls in your face
you got the keys to me I love each freckle on your face, oh,
I've never been so wrapped up,
honey, I like the way you're everything I've ever wanted

I had time to think it oh-over and all I can say is come closer,
take a deep breath and jump then fall into me

every time you smile, I smile
and every time you shine, I'll shine for you

whoa oh I'm feeling you baby
don't be afraid to jump then fall, jump then fall into me

baby, I'm never gonna leave you,
say that you wanna be with me too
cause I'm gonna stay through it all so jump then fall

the bottoms gonna drop out from under our feet
I'll catch you, I'll catch you
when people say things that bring you to your knees,
I'll catch you
the time is gonna come when you're so mad you could cry
but I'll hold you through the night until you smile

whoa oh I need you baby
don't be afraid please
jump then fall, jump then fall into me

baby, I'm never gonna leave you,
say that you wanna be with me too
cause I'm gonna through it all so jump then fall

jump then fall baby
jump then fall into me, into me

every time you smile, I smile
and every time you shine, I'll shine
and every time you're here baby, I'll show you, I'll show you
you can jump then fall, jump then fall, jump then fall into me, into me
