FortuneUpon this greenlight bamboo morningFortune by ImagineAppleScruffs
The weary farmer turns the soil
Plant and ripen this, the fruit of his heart
He eyes the sunlit forests
Wishing and hoping in vain to receive a sign of his wealth
But then, a crane, a happy omen, soars o’erhead
And the farmer throws down his tools
Thinking to himself, “I must go…”
“I must go and seek my fortune
For surely it will never come to me
If I wait like a hiding cricket.”
So he packed a burlap sack with food and fruit
And a water skin for travel
Set he out upon no trail to find his way.
At length he met a fox, clever and cunning,
And the fox belike so curious asked “Whither you wander, good man?”
And the farmer told him, “I seek my fortune, and have left my farm to do so…”
“There is a wise man,” the fox snuffled. “On the mountain top, up high beyond the clouds
Seek him there in the cave of many waters, and he will help.”
And the fox ran off before the fa
Under the Moons of BalgorumDeeply in the Stygian darknessUnder the Moons of Balgorum by ImagineAppleScruffs
E’er in sorrow will she be
None is fairer than this enchantress
Always lovely ever ageless
But ne’er the daylight will she see
For she is captive in the palace gloom
Under the moons of Balgorum
This palace tall of nightly hue
Built in mourning cloak and tears
All of Pluto’s mighty blue
His eyes that do sad women woo
And in Tartarus dwell for years
In this torture she does dream of doom
Under the moons of Balgorum
When shall her beauty be not dead
Like the floors beneath her toes
It lingers as a cloud around her head
That sudden fearful sense of dread
When will the Master let her go?
Only when the demon lilies bloom
Under the moons of Balgorum
Sudden be a hunter on his way
One who traversed the lines of fire
For in his path, there will or may,
Writhe the figures of the day,
In this will be his real desire
To free that beauteous living bloom
From under the moons of Balgorum
This clever hunter in his might
Ventured to the palace cold
|The rubbish I create with me own hands and brain...|

Anything that moisturizes and softens well.
184: Xbox or ps3:
Neither. I don’t play video games often enough to have either.
183: Piggy banks are:
182: In my pockets:
No pockets. Apparently the clothing manufacturers like making comfy pants with no effin pockets. Grr.
181: On my calendar:
Are little reminders to tell me when to write, exercise, and more…
180: Marriage is:
A sacred union that should be honored.
179: Spongebob can:
Blow big-ass bubbles, dammit!
178: My mom:
Is artistic and organized but also abrasive at times when she’s stressed and blows her problems out of proportion. No matter because I love her no matter what.
177: The last three songs I bought were?
Don’t remember actually. I’m sorry.
176: Last YouTube video watched:
A funny video of George W. Bush and an impersonator of him together at a state dinner. It was hilarious.

None. My parents were both only children, no siblings. However, they have cousins aplenty.

[ I Believe In ]
169: Love at first sight:
Yes, but only sometimes.
Definitely. Otherwise I would not have found Christian the way I did.
More nowadays than I have before.
Jury is still out.
Yes, but it can look however you want it to look.
In a way, yes. But refer to my version of God(s) as the Lord and Lady.
Not entirely. Most of your life is not told in the stars, because you have the power to change the outcome if you choose.
160: Soul mates:
Definitely believe in them! I’ve found mine!
Yes. Have seen them.
158: Gay Marriage:
Is just as sacred and valid as a heterosexual marriage. So yes, I believe in it.
I don’t believe it solves anything, but I believe it will always exist in some way, shape, or form.
These are a form of ghost/spirit I have caught on camera, so yes.
Yes, but it’s called Magicks. It is working with the divine to ask the elements on earth to manifest in a way that helps you be a better person, as the Goddess wills it, and it harms none.
[ This or That ]
154: Hugs or Kisses:
153: Drunk or High:

141: White Chocolate or Milk Chocolate:
Milk, definitely! Yum!
140: Mac or PC:
PC. It’s all I’ve ever known anyway.
139: Flip flops or high heels:
Neither. Flip flops are too flat with no arch support and heels are just painful and scary to walk in.
138: Ugly and rich OR sweet and poor:
Don’t you mean cute and poor? An “ugly” person can be just as sweet as a beautiful person.
137: Coke or Pepsi:
Coke, if I have to. But I drink mostly water and tea.
136: Hillary or Obama:
135: Buried or cremated:
134: Singing or Dancing:
Singing. I can’t dance modernly for shit. The way I dance… I make the watusi look hip.
133: Coach or Chanel:
I don’t care for either; can’t afford them.
132: Kat McPhee or Taylor Hicks:
Who are these people?
131: Small town or Big city:
Both for different reasons. (I’m with Manda on this one).
130: Wal-Mart or Target:
129: Ben Stiller or Adam Sandler:
Ben Stiller. He’s funny in a cute shy way that’s not inappropriate.
128: Manicure or Pedicure:
Manicure. I don’t want strangers touching my feet.
127: East Coast or West Coast:
I live on the East Coast and I like it. The West coast is too earthquakey. Lol

Both. They’re pretty much a month apart anyway.
125: Chocolate or Flowers:
124: Disney or Six Flags:
123: Yankees or Red Sox:
I’m a Masshole. Red Sox duh!
[ Here's What I Think About ]
I think war is just dumb and unhelpful. It just proves to our gods that we can’t do anything civilly.
121: George Bush:
Which one? For Dubya, I’d say he was a bad image for our country. He was more like the image of idiocy in the US. Inarticulate, bumbling, not confident, forgetful, funny-looking, He deserved to be a game show host rather than the President of the US.
120: Gay Marriage:
Is just as unifying as heterosexual marriages. It’s the same kind of love. Just between people of the same sex. That’s the only difference.
119: The presidential election:
Is going to be useless because I just know we’ll get a Republican president and then the country will plunge deep into darkness.
Should only be valid in the first trimester. Once the baby moves, it should be too late and would basically count as murder.
116: Reality TV:
Is so stressful. I can’t watch it.
Should be supportive and understanding, but firm and decided that their child(ren) will get an education so that the child will have more options open to them as they grow up.
114: Back stabbers:
I’ve never encountered any, but obviously these kind of people are not trustworthy.
Can be superficial. It takes an imagination to post things people will like.
Is a necessary evil. Haha.
110: My Neighbors:
Are lovely people that have been next to us for years, but they might be moving now. Sad.
109: Gas Prices:
They fluctuate too much.
108: Designer Clothes:
Is a good opportunity to be someone.
Are entertaining, but sometimes taken too seriously. People are poor losers.
105: My family:
I love them, even though they get on my nerves sometimes.
104: The future:
Is brighter than ever.

I love DeviantArt! It's a wonderful community where I can find people just as weird as I am.
I like the Beatles.
I like the Young Ones, a 1980s British comedy TV show.

I like feedback on my work, so if you have something to say, please say it!
I believe in angels!
I love the TV show 'Gunsmoke'; for some reason I keep dreaming about Marshal Dillon (played by James Arness). I also like the show 'Bonanza'... and some of its characters: Little Joe Cartwright (played by Michael Landon) and Griff King (Tim Matheson), mainly.
I love Star Wars and Luke Skywalker, but goddammit I f***ing HATE Mara Jade!!! Do not, I seriously mean DO NOT get me started on how much I HATE that orange hairball that someone's cat hacked up!!! She is NOT welcome in my personal Star Wars universe...
