Purple, dusting of yellow, green
In cerulean sky
Sherbet sky fluff
With blazing crest peaking over hills
Cool Refreshing breath of God on the land
Morning has broken
Day is come
Holy Spirit thank you for singing to me
For touching me
For being with me
I met mermaids!!I've lived by Mermaid's Lake my WHOLE life and I've never seen or met a mermaid until today. I met two very sweet, very friendly pair of mermaids named Thalassa and Maryna. I was a little nervous at first but they were really nice and answered my questions while I sat in the water with them. We had a good conversation, and the entire first experience was very much a good first impression. I love Maryna's hair though, it's so blue. It's one of my favorite colors other than purple. I'm not one to usually freak out but I did at first, like, in a fangirl kind of way.More Like This
I'm really hoping to continue this meeting new people thing, I'm getting more comfortable around everyone and the fact that I've been invited back to people's places, that they want to hang out with me, is definitely a plus.

Just some basic tips and tricks for flawless interaction on DeviantArt
Watch people when you honestly find them interesting.
Watch your friends, even if they don't have amazing art. It helps you stay updated with their progress.
Watch groups. They'll offer you a fine selection of art you're interested in, and will help you discover new (interesting) artists.
Check the faves of people you watch. As you like their work, you might have similar tastes in art. Checking their faves might help you find cool art.
Recommend art from people that you watch for a Daily Deviation (if good art, of course).
Uncheck all boxes when watching. There's nothing more disappointing than an empty watch.

Cooking was such a chore; I forgot how much it was to do when it came to preparing a large meal to feed many people. We managed to get so much prepared for today’s party. It’s going to be amazing since I can’t wait to see the look on Chiara’s face when she sees all three cakes. There is also a nice cake that somewhat well…it is a bit on the naughty side and I hope that the girls enjoy it tonight.
I still need to go out to get Chiara’s gift for her so I’ll run out in a few minutes to get it from the store.
Chia's Diary #5Today is Monday, and it's eight days until Carey and I say I do! I am really excited because we're going to live happily ever after in wonderful martial bliss! While I know we do spend a lot of time together we'll get to spend more time together once we become husband and wife.More Like This
I am going to spend the whole day with mom, and Penny doing a lot of girly things. We're going to spend time at the beach, go shopping in Onen to the new lingerie shop that opened and then we'll hang out at mom's house to watch Titanic which is one of my favorite movies. That Leonard DiCaprio is such a hottie.
I do wish that the other girls could hang out with us too but they're all so busy preparing themselves for the wedding. I am glad they all like the dresses I've chosen for them to wear. They're all going to look like beautiful princesses that stepped out of a fairytale.
I contacted my older sisters Phyllis and Phoebe and they told me they'll be here on Thursday. I hope they're going to like the dr

So much happened yesterday afternoon and evening that made me feel amazing! I spent the whole day in the kitchen setting the menu for Miss Chiara's bridal shower on Monday. We spent our time in the grocery store getting different foods to start cooking all day.
So we promised Pandora that we'd be the ones in charge of cooking for the surprise bridal shower. We decided to make a lot of different foods and we just got to bed at at least three in the morning.
So far the menu consists of Chicken Salad Crescent rolls, cream cheese olive spread, The three cheese lasagna, and small little hat cookies.
I am planning to make three cakes for the party too. There is going to be this huge cake t

I am so happy with the find we found at the dress shop yesterday afternoon. It is this amazing dress that has a beautiful style to it. I know that I should've been a little more specific of what I wanted but thanks to my mom, sister, and friends we were able to find my perfect dress! It is lace with lovely ribbon wrapped around the lace. I managed to get a tiara for my veil and a garter to wear around my right leg. I hope that Carey likes it...I wanna be a goddess for him.
And I notice last night that Penny and mamma were being really mysterious about something. They didn't tell me much and I am really hoping they're not going to pull a prank on me or anything. I don't know why but maybe I should spy on them today and find out just what they're planning.
Oh! the girls loved their dresses and I am going to get the pictures off my phone and show them to everyone. We were all so silly while we were shopping. I lov
Robin Williams, Depression, and a Thank YouI honestly didn’t mean to come back so suddenly, but the news from earlier today just hit home very hard and I felt the need to say something to y’all.More Like This
Robin Williams Passes Away
Robin Williams passes away today at the relatively young age of 63. The earliest reports so far seem to confirm that it was a suicide by asphyxiation. He had been battling severe depression for quite some time now, and it seems that it ultimately did him in. Robin Williams was one of the first actors who’s career I began to follow as a kid, owing largely to his involvement in Disney’s Aladdin as the Genie.
I remember a story Stephen Spielberg told about when he was filming Schindler’s List. While over in Germany, Robin Williams would call Stephen up every night to tell him a joke because the story of Schindler’s List was so depressing and difficult to film Stephen needed the pick-me-ups.
It’s incredibly sad that Robin ultimately took his own life lik

Can't stay comfortable
Can't doze or snooze
No matter how I try
Staring at the TV in a darkened room
Nothing on. I'm trying to find something
Something boring enough send me away
Teleshopping and shitty music videos
Whiny 20-year olds who think life is hard
Like anyone does when their first love leaves
And aging people, apparently famous
I played a background role in a film that bombed
But if you buy this enough of this bullshit
Then you can be carefree and successful like me.
Reruns of terrible sitcoms and cop shows
Relics of a time long gone
Where the bad-guys are easily recognisable
Where we avoid anything that might offend
Times are changing, we don't live in the dark ages
Sex shows that tease but show you nothing
Whether you want to see it or not
Talking of kinks and fantasies that you're bored of
It must be weird, because they live in Sweden
They're wearing PVC or enjoy spanking
I've seen it all before, and it is meaningless
But I still can't sleep.
TV doesn't hel
