had we but world enough, and time.

To His Coy Mistress

Had we but world enough, and time,
This coyness, Lady, were no crime
We would sit down and think which way
To walk and pass our long love's day.
Thou by the Indian Ganges' side
Shouldst rubies find: I by the tide
Of Humber would complain. I would
Love you ten years before the Flood,
And you should, if you please, refuse
Till the conversion of the Jews.
My vegetable love should grow
Vaster than empires, and more slow;
An hundred years should go to praise
Thine eyes and on thy forehead gaze;
Two hundred to adore each breast,
But thirty thousand to the rest;
An age at least to every part,
And the last age should show your heart.
For, Lady, you deserve this state,
Nor would I love at lower rate.

But at my back I always hear
Time's wing├Ęd chariot hurrying near;
And yonder all before us lie
Deserts of vast eternity.
Thy beauty shall no more be found,
Nor, in thy marble vault, shall sound
My echoing song: then worms shall try
That long preserved virginity,
And your quaint honour turn to dust,
And into ashes all my lust:
The grave's a fine and private place,
But none, I think, do there embrace.

Now therefore, while the youthful hue
Sits on thy skin like morning dew,
And while thy willing soul transpires
At every pore with instant fires,
Now let us sport us while we may,
And now, like amorous birds of prey,
Rather at once our time devour
Than languish in his slow-chapt power.
Let us roll all our strength and all
Our sweetness up into one ball,
And tear our pleasures with rough strife
Through the iron gates of life:
Thus, though we cannot make our sun
Stand still, yet we will make him run.

-Andrew Marvell, circa 1650-52

siskel & ebert.

so i feel like there are a handful of movies i want to see right now. that would cost me quite a bit of money. about $30 to be exact.

The Goods
two words: jeremy piven.
i think he is hysterical & the preview alone is ridiculous enough. im hooked & ready for some laughs.

The Time Traveler's Wife

i have about 50 pages left to read in the book. it is such a fascinating and different story that has never been told before, that i know of. i am so excited to see this with linney on friday :) movie dates with her are the best. we like to go to target before it starts and stock up on drinks & candy. then we sneak it in. this time, she has the brilliant idea of $1 popcorn at target. she's awesome like that.

500 Days of Summer
i havent seen Joseph Gordon-Levitt since 3rd Rock From the Sun. Im interested to see what he's got. Zooey Deschanel is always enjoyable to watch. bottom line..... im a hopeless romantic.

Movies are like an expensive form of therapy for me.
