Saving original thought

I've started another blog: This is just going to be a place to post all the quotes I've been collecting over the years. I currently have 2 notebooks full of quotes.

Irony, party of one.

So last night at the concert (more on the concert later), there was a guy a few rows in front of us with a t-shirt that said, "If it's too loud, you're too old" on it. Thinking of how I just posted that here yesterday, I had to chuckle. Then I saw that he had ear plugs in, and I laughed out loud. Now, there is nothing wrong with protecting your hearing. I've worn ear plugs to a concert or two myself. But dude, seriously. Talk about a visual oxymoron.

How sad is it that I can't even come up with a witty or thought-provoking quote for post? Bleh. Is 6:30 too early to go to bed?

A fine line between catch-phrase & ear-worm

Have you ever found yourself repeating a catch-phrase or tag-line? Lately, mine is, "Go big or go home." I can't stop using it, and it is really beginning to drive me nuts! (yeah, yeah, I know. Short drive.)

Not for the squeamish

I wandered into the living room just a little bit ago, and discovered Kaylee ripping Pig's stuffing out through his mouth. Oh, the horrors! He lost his mouth, all the stuffing in his head, and his remaining ear. I should be able to put him back together, although the inside of his mouth will be tricky. His shell is in the washing machine right now; let's hope it doesn't disintegrate.
(You can see Kaylee pouting in the background of the picture because I yelled at her. I am such a meanie.)
