"Myself" by Edgar Guest

I have to live with myself, and so,
I want to be fit for myself to know;

I want to be able as days go by,
Always to look myself straight in the eye;

I don't want to stand with the setting sun
And hate myself for the things I've done.

I don't want to keep on a closet shelf
A lot of secrets about myself,

And fool myself as I come and go
Into thinking that nobody else will know

The kind of man I really am;

I don't want to dress myself up in sham.
I want to deserve all men's respect;

But here in this struggle for fame and pelf,
I want to be able to like myself.

I don't want to think as I come and go
That I'm for bluster and bluff and empty show.
I never can hide myself from me,
I see what others may never see,

I know what others may never know,
I never can fool myself -- and so,

Whatever happens, I want to be
Self-respecting and conscience free.

Movie Review: Iron Man 2

Enter two characters on a forest-like stage.
Friend 1: I'm sorry man!
Friend 2:Dudeee .. what are you sorry for??! I am the one who blew up everything...

Ah... the wonders of friendship. In many ways, I find this movie celebrating it. No matter how nutty, narcissistic, or psyched you may be, you can always rely on the magic of your friendship to being light through your days. Even if your days are numbered thanks to palladium in the reactor (that keeps your heart beating) that is also turning out to be poisoning your blood... The things that happen when you are Tony Stark.

So you have saved the world once.. and managed world peace (it looks like) for a while.
What are your new challenges?
1. Tell a certain Miz Potts that she is the CEO of your company and then try to make her come for a romantic holiday to Venice < insane men in this world! Don't they realize its hard running a company! >
2. Save the world (again)... cause your dad wasn't the only one who had the reactor plans < enter whip-lashing villain >
3. Stop your blood poisoning
4. Stop the U.S. military from "trying" to steal your amazing piece of amour
5. Learn to cook an omelette < in about 3 hours>

Whew! It isn't easy after you are done saving the world once is it?

This movie may not have me raring to go for the part-3 , but it sure is good anyway. Watch this for time pass... no ground breaking stuff here.

But there is this really amazing red hair vixen that you may well keep your eyes on :)

Ahh... suspense is such a wonderful thing.

What makes a memory?

Is it the taste?
Is it the scenery?
May hap it be the people along the way,
The sun rides high on the crimson sky,
No twilight do I see

The corpses of
long sadnesses seem past.
The new dawn awakes,
the mountain of sudden ecstasy laughs.
No cloud do I see

The cloudy burst
along the mountain's almond crust,
cannot stem the joy
of the climb and the exuberance.
No shadows can i hear

Random joys seem to be the best,
no sorrows can they contain.
The only thought of spring and sun,
can make winds sing again
Simply joy!
