"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Poetry Sunday (06) ON MONDAY EDITION!!!

This is a fabulous new blog feature here at Eli to the nth!  Thanks to Genna from Reading, Writing, and the World of Words, who created this awesome feature and gave me the permission to host it here, as well as, use her cute graphic!  Poetry is one of my passions, but I have yet to share it here.  So this feature gives me the perfect opportunity to do so!
Due to real life happening (why do we need anything but the internet and books?) I haven't been around much.  Which is a shame since April is freaking National Poetry Month!  So even though I'm late I'd thought I'd share some cool things I found on Poets.org.

For NPM, there are 30 different ways to celebrate, suggested by the site.  Some of the ideas I want to do are: put poetry in an unexpected place, put a poem on the pavement,  play Exquisite Corpse, and start a commonplace book.  I've already started my commonplace book.

Most of it is just snippets of poems and dialogue right now.  Slowly filling it up, especially soince I've recently gotten a couple of cool poertry books.
Let me know what you guys are doing for NPM!
