Double, Double Toil and Trouble

Three Witches from Macbeth
by William Shakespeare
Round about the couldron go:
In the poisones entrails throw.
Toad,that under cold stone
Days and nights has thirty-one
Sweated venom sleeping got,
Boil thou first in the charmed pot.
Double,double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the cauldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork and blindworm's sting,
Lizard's leg and howlet's wing.
For charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
Double,double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and couldron bubble.

Scale of dragon,tooth of wolf,
Witch's mummy, maw and gulf
Of the ravin'd salt-sea shark,
Root of hemlock digg'd in the dark,
Liver of blaspheming Jew;
Gall of goat; andslips of yew
silver'd in the moon's eclipse;
Nose of Turk, and Tartar's lips;
Finger of birth-strangled babe
Ditch-deliver'd by the drab,-
Make the gruel thick and slab:
Add thereto a tiger's chaudron,
For ingrediants of our cauldron.
Double,double toil and trouble,
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

Why was the Skeleton afraid to cross the road?
He had no guts.

Spooky Fairy Tales

Waiting for the green flash.. 

Looks like the gates that opened up to the Beast's castle.

Eerie Red Riding Hood.

Spooky Poem

  Because I could not stop for Death
by Emily Dickinson

Because I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me;
The carriage held but just ourselves
And Immortality.
We slowly drove, he knew no haste,
And I had put away
My labor, and my leisure too,
For his civility.
We passed the school, where children strove
At recess, in the ring;
We passed the fields of gazing grain,
We passed the setting sun.
Or rather, he passed us;
The dews grew quivering and chill,
For only gossamer my gown,
My tippet only tulle.
We paused before a house that seemed
A swelling of the ground;
The roof was scarcely visible,
The cornice but a mound.
Since then 'tis centuries, and yet each
Feels shorter than the day
I first surmised the horses' heads
Were toward eternity.


Time to pack up

Going to Florida for wHagonweel's (and Ring's) Nationals :)  

Oh and I went auburn again :)

Spooky Poem

The Apparition
By John Donne
 When by thy scorn, O murd’reuses, I am dead
      And that thou think’st thee free
From all solicitation from me,
Then shall my ghost come to thy bed,
And thee, feign’d vestal, in worse arms shall see;
Then thy sick taper will begin to wink,
And he, whose thou art then, being tir’d before,
Will, if thou stir, or pinch to wake him, think
      Thou call’st for more,
And in false sleep will from thee shrink;
And then, poor aspen wretch, neglected thou
Bath’d in a cold quicksilver sweat wilt lie
      A verier ghost than I.
What I will say, I will not tell thee now,
Lest that preserve thee; and since my love is spent,
I’had rather thou shouldst painfully repent,
Than by my threat’nings rest still innocent.

Happy Monday

People are   d i f f e r e n t .
That’s why people are   b e a u t i f u l .  

p.s. Happy 3/4 a year with my dude :)

Halloween trick

We have a fun Halloween thing at work - where people get "booed". A secret someone leaves a little basket of Halloween treats on your desk - and you have two days to boo two other people. I got booed on Monday, and my manager got booed today. She was so thrilled. It's fun to have company spirit :) We're still wondering who started it..

My sister gets married in 50 hours


"Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering."

Interior Design moment

I like black and white rugs

 And twisted chair legs
And bright doors with a library behind (complete with a ladder)
