Quotable Quotes

I’ve been fairly sporadic with blogging.  Many of my fellow bloggers have made New Year’s Resolutions to blog more often in 2010.  I’m among them, I just didn’t put it in writing.

My cousin, Dawn, made the resolution to take a picture every day of the year.  I KNOW I’m not that ambitious.  My dear friend, Liz, has a wonderful blog and has given each day of the work week a theme.  I’m not quite that ambitious either.  But, she did come up with an idea for me – blog about things I hear people say that either make my jaw drop or make me laugh. 

So, here we go.

If you are going to fight someone, I want it to be the Nazis. 

        – in reference to the last Indiana Jones movie versus the earlier ones. 

That was back in typewriter days.

       – in reference to my thinking that there should be two spaces after the end of a sentence.  Ouch.

He doesn’t even read FICTION!

       – Quickly explained the mindset of someone we knew.

And, finally, overheard on the streets of New Orleans…

That’s all we cook is Italian s**t.

Thinking (not singing) in the Shower

I usually think a lot in the shower.  I don’t know why.  Maybe it is because I don’t have anything else to look at, enclosed in that “just bigger than a voting booth” space, other than my body (shiver).  Maybe it the relaxing warm water.  But, somehow, I always come up with something to blog about.

Then I get out.

Apparently, drying myself off also wipes away any memory I have of what I was thinking in the shower.  I know I had a great idea (or at least a good one) for today.  No idea what that might have been.  None.  I even had a great ending sentence!  Mind.  Blank.

So this morning, I’ve been trying to remember.  Let’s see…I walked.  Nope, that wasn’t it.  I cleaned the basement a little.  Nope.  Already wrote about that.  The exterminator is coming to give us a bid on getting rid of the fleas in our yard.  YUCK!  Definitely not it.  I just finished the book Twilight, but this isn’t a blog about books.  I know  it wasn’t about the Democratic National Convention or anything political.  You don’t need me to tell you who I’m going to vote for and why.  Who do you think I am?   George Stephanopoulos?  (And, yes, I had to look up the spelling of his name.  Can you imagine having a crush on him and writing that name all over your spiral notebook?  Wow.)

So, other than to let you know that after my last blog, I didn’t drink coffee for 5 days and just now get back to you.  I just don’t remember what I was going to treat you to today. 

Oh, well, I’ll think of it eventually.  Probably the next time I’m in the shower.  Besides, unlike many electrical products, this laptop did not come with the warning Do Not Use in Bathtub so I am certain it is safe.
