Steampunk

I recently stumbled over another aspect of todays youth culture that really caught my eye: "steampunk", which is.. I'll just let Wikipedia explain:
"Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fictionalternate history, and speculative fiction that came into prominence during the 1980s and early 1990s. Specifically, steampunk involves an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century and often Victorian era Britain—that incorporates prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy."

Fascinating :) Even cooler: what "steampunk style" fashion looks like!
Imagine if electricity hadn't been discovered? How would the world look now? Every piece of technology we know would look so different, everything we do would be so unlike what we're used to. No cellphones, no internet, no mp3 players.. not to mention big stuff like factory machines, airplanes, etc. Weird thought!! Now imagine this: what if there IS an alternate source of power that we HAVEN'T discovered yet? :O

Yeah, my mind, right now: *BOOM!* ;)

Anyways, what do you think of the steampunk fashion? Would you be willing to dress like that? How would you feel if you saw people at school or work or whatever dressed like that? :) too cool.

First Snow!!

:D I am overjoyed. Ecstatic. Euphoric, even. (Dang there are a lot of fancy words for "happy"! haha)

Today, October 21st, 2010, it snowed. It was beautiful!

Ok, we didn't exactly get 6 inches, the snowflakes melted as soon as they hit the ground, but that brief moment was still wonderful :) Absolutely lovely.

Books and Movies

Ever read or seen "My Sisters Keeper"? Incredible book. Absolutely amazing. I don't think I've ever cried so much over a book. When I was done, I couldn't wait to see the movie. I thought that if it was as great as the book, it would be my new favorite movie.
.... I think you know what I'm going to say next.
I was so disappointed with the movie. I couldn't believe they left out so many important details, not to mention the entirely altered ending! :( But oh well. I'm sure there are many who had never read the book who thought the movie was excellent.

Will I feel the same when I watch The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo? :P

I'm still waiting for someone to recreate Lois Lowry's "The Giver" into a movie :) Great story that could use a Hollywood ending.

Yep, I'm a nerd and I just wasted the last 10 minutes of your life with my pointless thoughts. ;)

Mybad.

Love,

Come stop your crying
It will be all right
Just take my hand Hold it tight 

I will protect you
from all around you
I will be here
Don't you cry 

For one so small,
you seem so strong
My arms will hold you,
keep you safe and warm
This bond between us
Can't be broken
I will be here
Don't you cry 

'Cause you'll be in my heart
Yes, you'll be in my heart
From this day on
Now and forever more 

You'll be in my heart
No matter what they say
You'll be here in my heart, always 

Why can't they understand
the way we feel
They just don't trust
what they can't explain
I know we're different but,
deep inside us
We're not that different at all 

And you'll be in my heart
Yes, you'll be in my heart
From this day on
Now and forever more 

Don't listen to them
'Cause what do they know
We need each other,
to have, to hold
They'll see in time
I know 

When destiny calls you
You must be strong
I may not be with you
But you've got to hold on
They'll see in time
I know
We'll show them together 

'Cause you'll be in my heart
Yes, you'll be in my heart
From this day on,
Now and forever more 

Oh, you'll be in my heart
No matter what they say
You'll be in my heart, always
Always
