Ten Thoughts

  1. Accept the fact that some days you’re the pigeon, and some days you’re the statue!
  2. Since it’s the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.
  3. Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.
  4. Never buy a car you can’t push.
  5. Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won’t have a leg to stand on.
  6. Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance.
  7. Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.
  8. Some mistakes are too much fun to make only once.
  9. A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.
  10. Save the earth….. It’s the only planet with chocolate!* I THINK !!!!

    I had an older friend who, every time I saw him, asked me what I was reading lately. It kept me on my toes because I would be embarrassed to answer, “nothing”. lol

    I just thought of a dish you can suggest for your Monday morning recipe.
    First you can ask this question and then give the recipe as your answer.

    Question: What do you call a Pope who resigns?

    Answer: Ex Benedict

    gigi – Glad you enjoyed them.

    Maxi – I bet life up on a pedestal is very cold. Brrrr!

    Nancy – Now that is a funny story, but not a recipe I ever made, the Hollandaise sauce, would put me off.

    I read Ulysses once, a while back. I thought it would look cool to be caught with it, until I was caught reading it out loud by a stranger. I told him it was better read out loud but I knew he thought I was nuts. If I was caught dead with it I’d be pretty proud, though.

    I keep forgetting about no. 7, thanks for reminding that it’s something worth celebrating 🙂

    K8 – I found in the bucket round the back reading or singing Ulysses out loud to the tune of Happy Birthday!

    Excellent. I especially like “Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.” Of course it depends whether the person who discovers you likes or dislikes the book in question – or has even heard of it. I suspect a lot of my reading choices would mean nothing to the typical death-discoverer.

    Alice – I have collected so many thoughts and quotes over the years, that I decided to make use of them for posts every now and then.
