“OK, how come United States of Americans spell 'mitre' M I T R E but 'meter' M E T E R? And, if 'mitre' is M I T R E & 'meter' should be M E T R E, why isn't 'sober' spelled S O B R E? That's what I wanna know.”
Inspired by sugarimp, I'm going on a "TV fast" for a week, starting immediately. Will I be more social without TV? (I doubt it.) Will I exercise? Will I eat better? Will I record the results in my livejournal?
“OK, take number 73. This is a test post to try out that new cool automatic transposition thing for LiveJournal Posts & I'm using ogg vorbis now & I know that the auto transposition thing can't spell that, so I'm going to spell it for you, Mister You-Guy-That-Does-That-Automatic-Transition: ogg vorbis. OK, you got that?
Now, everyone else, I want you to hit reply & suggest some cool things for me to say on voice posts so that they can all be automatically transitioned by the auto transposition guy. All right, do that now. Go.”
It's not an action blockbuster or that The Simpsons movie we are all waiting for, but this is a powerful movie that deserves to be seen on the big screen. I wouldn't have even heard about it if a friend hadn't suggested it.
“I cannot tell any reasons why two true-minded people should not be married. Love is not love which changes when it finds a change in circumstances, or bends from its firm stand even when a lover is unfaithful. No, it is a lighthouse that sees storms but is never shaken; love is the guiding north star to every lost ship, whose value cannot be calculated, although its altitude can be measured. Love is not at the mercy of Time, even though physical beauty comes within the compass of Time's sickle. Love does not alter with hours and weeks, but, rather, it endures until the last day of life. If I am proved wrong about these thoughts on love, then I recant all that I have written, and no man has ever truly loved.”
