Keep smiling, it makes people wonder what you’re up to.– Anonymous ((Oh, it’s not that complicated to imagine what I’ve been up to. And if you’ve never heard this silly quote before, I’m going to start wondering what you have been up to!))
Wine rejoices the heart of man and joy is the mother of all virtues.– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe ((YAY for wine! Woo-hoo!!))
I haven’t been to this site in a while, but I never get tired of seeing what is new and horrifying over at www.cakewrecks.blogspot.com!
I never thought I’d see the day when I’d be getting f*ing excited...– Ozzy Osbourne ((Hey, I hear ya, Ozzy—-these days I get excited just knowing that there’s milk still left in the fridge!))
Just had to place a really tough, weird call today. Ever had to do one of those? And as the phone rings you’re praying that you’ll simply get to spill on the voicemail and just say your peace and be done for good, as you sit there thinking to yourself, ”don’t pick up, don’t pick up, don’t pick up…”?? Maybe it’s not all that awkward to some...
No pain, no palm; no thorns, no throne; no gall, no glory; no cross, no crown.– William Penn ((Ummmm….Happy Palm Sunday?))
How friggin’ adorable are these girls?! Mind you, I DO NOT like country music whatsoever, but they were just so bouncy and talented with their vintage harmonies that I just couldn’t help but dig them! Don’t know the names of this act, but I caught part of the show they played at Station Inn the other night and was totally blown away. Rock on, ladies!
It’s the national addiction: warmth on chilly winter nights, innocence on...– Patricia Linden ((Yeah. I could use some innocense this afternoon.))
Maybe you have to let go of who you were to become who you will be.– Carrie Bradshaw. It somehow seems very fitting to end this chapter - or begin this hiatus - with a quote from, of all people, her. ;) And with that, my friends, adieu. (via juliaallison) Supposedly, the queen of the narcissistic blogging stars, Julia Allison, is QUITTING the internets. I hope...
My current state...
…is contentment. Dare I say that I’m comfortably happy? Maybe it’s the sunny day or my sunny disposition or the fact that I’m finally back in the groove of things after my wacky week in the Big Apple, but I had a “moment” today where I really did think to myself, “Yeah…life is pretty good right now.” Oh sure, my life ain’t perfect. I...
scenes-from-my-hood: today in things i hate: the term “lunch meats” and/or “cold cuts” cigarettes the texture of eggplant litter papercuts and talking on the phone. the latter has become increasingly apparent, my hatred grows by the day. i am allergic to talking on the phone. when i am on the phone i am ITCHING TO GET OFF. i think this means i am officially not a teenage girl. that is...
You have four years to be irresponsible here. Relax. Work is for people with...– Tom Petty ((Believe it or not, I can indentify with this quote NOW…must be the whole going-back-to-college thing I’ve been dealing with since last Fall…))
I love my professor, but sometimes I loathe my professor. I specifically loathe her on days like these, when I have patiently waited for my class to occur tonight, drove 45 MINUTES out here specifically for this class, and had actually spent three hours last night working on homework for this class, only to see that my professor has cancelled class within 40 minutes of said class occurring. One...
Work is either fun or drudgery. It depends on your attitude. I like fun.– Colleen C. Barrett ((Tough to have fun on a Monday after a week of no work, but hey, I try…))
So today is my latest one—-the big 3-3. And it’s funny to note how much less you care about them as you age; after you hit age 30, it’s pretty much one big letdown until you hit the next notable b-day, which is the dreaded 40. And then the icky 50. And then you quit caring until you hit your 80’s. Getting old is fun, isn’t it? But actually, it is! I’ve enjoyed...
And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the...– Abraham Lincoln ((33 years for me, as of today, my birthday. Lotsa life in these years thus far!))
Never mind the darkness, or the fact that Al filmed this sequence the wrong direction—-how about that dancing?! Because when Depeche is on the speakers, you better believe Sheryl is on the dancefloor!
