bears repeating

Found this quote from T. in a pile of paper stuff and it still makes me smile.

"Hey, we all came from the same primordial sludge, right? If you think about it, we're all doing things a lot better than when we lived in caves, huh?"

This used to hang on the wall of my cubicle. I thought it was very uplifting.

snowed in

The Big Mom Visit was cancelled on account of the big nasty snowfall they got. Check it oot, as our neighbors to the north say:

Now even for Buffalo (where kids'Halloween costumes are often obscured by winter jackets, or designed to fit over them), October 13 is a little too early!

pickup lines, addendum

When I think of them, I will add them. Sort of an ongoing project.

Pickup lines are not guaranteed to work. Void where prohibited. Available wherever fine products are sold.


~ We should exchange recipes sometime.

~ I have big feet. (more effective for men to use, I think)

Sloth

I have decided that I am going to pursue a strict regimen of laziness in an attempt to undo the damage done by a guilt-inducing mother. Today most certainly is a beautiful day out, but you know what? I like being in my pajamas and knowing that I still have to shower and get going, but not for a while. Not until I finish tooling around the internet, drinking my coffee and reading the Ethicist column, and making breakfast. Most certainly not until at least 3.

Hey, man, I now work two jobs in a valiant effort to make ends meet (they do, but you still can't tie them together or anything). My slothy time is important. I spend most of my days attending to the needs of others. To run around like a hamster on a wheel in my off time as well seems like more of the same. Why burn out and get no fun out of it myself?

It breaks my heart that I am defending myself against the perceived nagging of a mother who lives hundreds of miles away. Leave me alone, Ma, I'm an adult now!
