That For Which I Yearn

A heart yearns for everything,
It knows it can never have,
It sings a song a thousand times,
But knows it's never heard.

A fairytale to plague the mind,
With friends and foe alike,
A sight to see them in your head,
A place you'll never find.

A place to mind your weary soul,
From the lonely jaded road,
Where kings weep and fallen sheep,
Cluster in silent hope.

A heavy wind to knock the gates,
Of heavens blissful role,
A devil's way of making pain,
Become a daily chore.

And the heart aches,
A mind breaks,
A soul shatters,
And the devil's won.
Blessed be,
Miss Mary Hiashi

The Creation of a New Word!

I have a little challange for you all.

I want you to create a new word for ultimate supreme ruler guy.

I want to use a word in a poem but king, lord, sultan, khan, duke, archbishop, emperor, tzar, kaiser, shah, tisroc, grand poohbah etc.. doesn't seem to fit.

So I shall hold a little competition and who ever win gets their word used in my poem. (Prize may differ).

I will of course try to think of one myself but I'm interested to see what you think of.

They are a good leader. Or not good as such but not evil. Proud and noble. Powerful and slightly arrogant.

Have fun and happy word creating!

Alex's Birthday


This week we celebrate the birthday of Alex, a beloved member of the SP gang since the beginning.
Even before we read his amazing stories, we admired and loved Alex for his friendly and fun ways. We continued to be delighted by Alex for his many talents that he shared with us: his stories, fanfics, and his art!
Our only sorrow is that he lives in Australia and that makes chatting with him difficult at times. But he is very loyal and despite his tremendous work load....(evil teachers!).....he still manages to visit our fanfic sites and leave comments!
So I'm going to leave the link to his fanfic. You will be amazed at all the wonderful stories you find there.


Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday dear, Alex!
Happy birthday to you!

 And Another song! :D

For he's a jolly good fellow!
For he's a jolly good fellow!
For he's a jolly good fellow!
That no one can deny!

May you have a wonderful birthday and eat lots of good cake, open lots of great presents, and be celebrated by all who know you!

Ya'll Will Like This Post :D

My dad e-mailed me this article he'd read and I thought I'd cheer all of you up by showing you!

"Dark chocolates are 'super food', healthier than fruits--study    


Here’s good news for the chocolate lovers. A new study by US researchers has discovered that this sweet snack is actually healthier than many fruit juices.
Chocolates are often eaten for pleasure, but several studies in the past have shown that the treat may have certain beneficial effects on human health.
Chocolates, especially dark ones, are rich in antioxidants including flavonoids that the study says help prevent damage to healthy cells.

Chocolates boost health more than fruit juice
The study, conducted by the US-based chocolate company Hershey Co., has suggested that chocolates appear to be more beneficial to health, when compared to fruits.
Touting the chocolates as the next super food, scientists at Hershey’s centre for health and nutrition said dark chocolate and cocoa have more anti-oxidant capacity than fruit juices.
Even the products made of chocolates have more flavanols and polyphenol, which are beneficial to human heart, according to New York Daily News, citing study findings.

Study details
The scientists reached their conclusion after carrying out a comparison test between cocoa powder, dark chocolate, and fruit powder, which contained powders made from acai berries, blueberries, pomegranates, and cranberries.
The researchers found that both dark chocolate and cocoa had more antioxidant activity and more flavonols than blueberry, cranberry, and pomegranate powder.
However, the hot cocoa mix came last in all the tests, likely due to the antioxidants being stripped out during processing.

Chocolates should be classified as super fruits
After overall comparison and evaluation, the study found that dark chocolate had the best anti-oxidising activity.
'The compounds in dark chocolate are just as good as the botanical compounds in fruit,' said study’s senior author Debra Miller, insisting that chocolate should be labelled a superfruit.
'Cocoa seeds should be considered a ‘superfruit’ and products derived from cocoa seed extracts, such as natural cocoa powder and dark chocolate as ‘superfoods’'
The findings of the study released Sunday in the Chemistry Central Journal.

Health benefits of chocolates
Dark chocolate has long been touted for its health benefits, including lowering the blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
The antioxidants in dark chocolate have also been proven to increase the levels of nitric oxide in the blood as well as improve the functions of blood vessels.
Past studies have shown that eating a bar of dark chocolate a week may significantly improve blood sugar and insulin sensitivity, which may considerably cut back diabetes risk.
The treat has also been linked to the regulation of physical energy, mood, and attention as it contains small amounts of a chemical called phenylethylamine (PEA), or the ‘love drug’."

Umm...So a lot of these are unfinished pictures...And if you can't see any of them I beg pardon...but I didn't feel like scanning them. But uh...Yep. See I told you I can't draw Ichigo's eyes...

Blessed be,

So...Hi again. I just read a book called Reckless and it's by Cornelia Funke. One of my most favourite authors in the world. It was addicting and amazing...and...and...Yayeth. I didn't read what it was about before I bought it because I trusted that it would be good no matter what. I wasn't let down. If you can get it, GET IT! I advise it whole heartedly. You will be speechless and awe struck. It has a 'twee bit of 'horror' but it is one big, dark fairytale. With dark fairies, witches, a...dude called the Tailor, kingdoms, elements of fairytales you know, dwarfs, etc., etc. I love that book now. (I just read it.) I actually advise any of her books. I know some are for younger, younger kids but um...Yep. I just thought I'd spread the word.

I wish they'd make a movie from it. That'd be awesome. On the off note. My sim died after he somehow got trappeed behind the basement wall and I couldn't get him out. Although I admitedly forgot about the poor sod...

I wish magic existed. Wow, I almost spelt magic as 'majic'. That is SAD. Poor me, I think I've been sleeping too much now...

Blessed be,
Miss Mary Hiashi
