23 ISABELLA LUCY BIRD 1831-1904
Life - A daring adventure or nothing at all
She lived up with the Ainu,
In northernmost Japan.
She travelled with the "Tommys,"
From Baghdad to Tehran.
The Yangtze and the Han,
She followed to their source.
In Morocco with the Berbers,
She rode a big, black horse.
She loved a Yankee outlaw,
"Rocky Mountain Jim."
800 miles together,
She rode along with him.
("Someone any woman might love, no sane woman would marry!")
Across Tibet, Oz, India,
The peninsular Malay,
Through Kurdistan and Turkey,
She wound her merry way.
So raise your glass, salute a "gal,"
A name you've never heard.
"Nobody has adventures,
Like Isabella Bird!"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isabella_Bird24 You won’t get away with it!
You know justice won’t touch you because you KNOW justice doesn’t exist. Not anymore, if ever it did.
But tell me now: are you sure no kind of power whatsoever can touch you? Are you REALLY sure? Let me tell you this: upon my soul, with everything I’ve got, I now curse you, from the deep of my heart, I curse you! Remember my words, and find no peace!
Remember, anytime you call it bad luck, it’ll be me.
Failure will be your name, Disgrace your destiny, until you’ll come begging me.
Then I’ll smile, and watch you beg again..25 Watching the A-Team
I swap channels on TV, dumb movies everywhere. Then I stop. Not a masterpiece of TV, maybe, but such candour is disarming.
Now they appear.
Murdoch: the please notice me child; B.A.: the good hearted, honest man with the kind smile; Hannibal: crazy scoundrel and lucky leader, and the other guy, the : wanna be a movie star cause I’m so charming one.
Every episode is the same, a pretty girl, a bad guy, a lot of shooting and nobody hurt… I feel like I’m a kid again. Not a lot of “good TV” can do that for you!
