"Auld Lang Syne" (1788) by Robert Burns Should auld acquaintance be forgot,  And never brought to mind?  Should auld acquaintance be forgot,  And auld lang syne!  Chorus.-For auld lang syne, my dear,  For auld lang syne.  We’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,  For auld lang syne.  And surely ye’ll be your pint stowp!  And surely I’ll be mine!  And we’ll tak a cup o’kindness yet,  For auld lang syne.  For auld, &c.  We twa hae run about the braes,  And pou’d the gowans fine;  But we’ve wander’d mony a weary fit,  Sin’ auld lang syne.  For auld, &c.  We twa hae paidl’d in the burn,  Frae morning sun till dine;  But seas between us braid hae roar’d  Sin’ auld lang syne.  For auld, &c.  And there’s a hand, my trusty fere!  And gie’s a hand o’ thine!  And we’ll tak a right gude-willie waught,  For auld lang syne.  For auld, &c.

"Auld Lang Syne" (1788) by Robert Burns

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne!

Chorus.-For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne.
We’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

And surely ye’ll be your pint stowp!
And surely I’ll be mine!
And we’ll tak a cup o’kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.
For auld, &c.

We twa hae run about the braes,
And pou’d the gowans fine;
But we’ve wander’d mony a weary fit,
Sin’ auld lang syne.
For auld, &c.

We twa hae paidl’d in the burn,
Frae morning sun till dine;
But seas between us braid hae roar’d
Sin’ auld lang syne.
For auld, &c.

And there’s a hand, my trusty fere!
And gie’s a hand o’ thine!
And we’ll tak a right gude-willie waught,
For auld lang syne.
For auld, &c.

This is why it’s hard to read.

He’s just trying to halp!

My cat is never this helpful with reading.

I think I just realized this is Abbie Cornish in her role as Fanny in Bright Star.  Love that movie.

This! It’s a daily occurrence.

"I get so excited about new books, I HUG THEM."

Me too. Especially when books I’ve had on reserve come in.

So true.

"I’ve always thought Yunior’s voice isn’t possible without hip-hop," Junot Díaz says. He discusses how hip-hop influenced his writing, his top three albums (Immortal Technique’s Revolutionary Vol. 2., Wu-Tang Clan’s Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers, and Big Daddy Kane’s Long Live the Kane), and even Miley Cyrus in an interview with Salon. Previously, we reported that he wrote his first book to the Conan the Barbarian soundtrack.
