snapshots of an idle mind

i had the strangest experience today, i went into a pub to watch the italian pool games at ten o’clock in the morning and was soundly ignored by the staff until i walked out at NOON after watching the italy match to completion.

i’m delighted, italy and ghana make it out of the pool, how lovely. so good for those racists who think africans are inferior. (tragically this is quite true in europe)

i’m too tired to post for real tonight… so here are some quotes i love:

You need the cholesterol, it will add structure to your veins.
— tommer

Space is a hard thing to negotiate
— lividviv

I’m flexible, of course I’m flexible, as long as everything is exactly the way I want it I’m very flexible.
— Lorelei Gilmore

Women don’t eat, we just look at food and jump on the treadmill.

— Ferris Bueller

You have new mail.

Much sorrow may be avoided by acknowledging that, as gloomy as being alone makes you feel, it is rollicking heaven compared with being among most other people.
— R. Rosenblatt

Another reason to be wary of ice-sheet outhouses: Seals occasionally use the opening in the ice as a blowhole. While there’s nothing inherently dangerous about a suppositorial blast of hot seal breath, it is, in the words of one shaken veteran, “a disquieting way to start your day.”
— Mary Roach, “Blinded by the White”

Never wear anything that panics the cat.
— P.J. O’Rourke

And you can go right ahead and get pissed off at me or take potshots or whatever makes your life worth living. I’m non-stick.
— Anna Melnikoff

That your arrogant pedagoguery has articulated even the most dubious of facts, is as foolish a fantasy as the one in which your rhetorical effluvium passes for thoughtful discourse.
— batz

Are you trying to indirectly praise your own introduced term prior to defining it? If so you flatter yourself sir, but it’s no compliment.
— madmagic

linux is for people who hate microsoft, bsd is for people who love unix (yaiba – 6 Oct 2000)

We could learn a lot from crayons:
some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names and all are different colors….but they all exist very nicely in the same box.

— unknown

Life is a learning process, not a pulpit.
— lsd

— aida

When I despair, I remember that all through history, the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time they seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it, always.
— Gandhi

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming—WOW!!! What A Ride!
— Anonymous

i’m always attracted to younger guys and it sucks cause i’ve made men outta boys so many times.

  6. Natalia before you do anything else GO WATCH FERRIS BUELLER!!! You will not be disappointed!

    OK so you quoted Lorelei Gilmore, Buffy Summers and Shane Falco…I am in love. Oh the Ghandi’s pretty cool too.

  7. nat: it’s tragic that you didn’t see it in high school because that was the *right* time. instead when you’re feeling extra juvenile and very much like skipping school you should watch it :)

    madame: yeah what you said to nat!

    dude it’s lorelei, i want to be her when i grow up (i know she’s only two years older than me!) and buffy? buffy was wise beyond her years :)

    mmmmmm shane falco *drool*

  8. Someone once said that I reminded them of Lorelei, it was the nicest thing anyone ever said to me.

    Oh and I am Buffy, btw.

  11. You quoted One Tree Hill, Ferris Bueller and The Replacements. How much do you rock???

    Two hours, no service whatsoever? I certainly hope they were glued to the games … not that it’s a viable excuse for rudeness AND poor business skills. Wow.

  12. Ok now I’m annoyed — I just left a comment and then blogger ate it.

    It went something like this:

    You quoted One Tree Hill, Ferris Bueller AND The Replacements (best line in the whole movie, btw). How much do you rock??

    Then there was some nonsense about being in a pub for 2 hours with no service whatsoever. Weird.

  13. Now I’m extra annoyed, because it didn’t eat it after all yet led to believe it did, then made a liar out of me.

    Bad blogger!

    so i went to my favourite brekkie place after and it worked out perfectly. yeah i was amazed.

    hee poor jmai losing fights with blogger…

    pyr: um… i should recognize that…

    bubbles: you’re bad. i saw a shirt for you today “you’ve been bad, go to my room”

  18. Can NOT believe no one waited on you! Seriously, that’s just wrong.

    My favorite is the one about being ‘non stick’…cause that’s pretty much me.

  23. love ALL the quotes… in part because lorelai gilmore is my idol. or lauren graham is. whatever.

    and i’m especially happy to know you’re watching big brother!

    it’s the show i hate hate HATE to watch… but can’t help myself.

    i feel less mutant-like now.

  25. Margaret Cho, Buffy and The Replacements quotes. I cannot love that more. Cheered me right up. My favourite quote for a long time is Timothy Leary I believe – Think for yourself, question authority.

    Comment by Amber — June 24, 2006 @ 12:53 am | Reply

  26. amber: you know it’s funny… the replacements was the one that got everyone. buffy and lorelei got the next most :)

    i randomly add to this list whenever i hear anything that strikes my fancy

    good quote dude :)

  27. what the hell are they doing with chicken george, anyway?
    and yeah… where IS brittany??
    if jase gets back in, i might have to hurt someone.

    and i can’t believe i know all these people’s names.

    starts up after the 4th, right? i thought it was odd that they were waiting so long after the show this week.

    survivor rocks. big brother doesn’t. but it wouldn’t be summer without it…

  28. BuffyWhat was the highlight of our relationship? when you broke up with me or when I killed you? I’m well aware of my stellar history with guys and no, I don’t see fat grandchildren in the offing with Spike. But I don’t think that really matters right now. You know, in the midst of all this insanity, a couple of things are actually starting to make sense. And the guy thing? (sighs) I always feared there was something wrong with me. You know, because I couldn’t make it work. But maybe I’m not supposed to.

    ANGEL: Because you’re the Slayer.

    BUFFY: Because, okay. I’m cookie dough. I’m not done baking. I’m not finished becoming whoever the hell it is I’m going to turn out to be. I make it through this and the next thing and the next thing and maybe one day I turn around and realize I’m ready. I’m cookies. And then, you know, if I want someone to eat m? (covers) or enjoy warm, delicious cookie-me, then that’s fine. That’ll be then. When I’m done.

  29. terry: vote for erika!


    oh man jase sucked so hard but the stupid teenagers think he’s cute. i like dana too… it’s hard to know who to vote for.

    i don’t know when it starts but i think after canada day sometime (july 1)

    it’s true… sad but true. i skipped last year but i’ll watch this year.

    madame: i loved that. actually i really liked the ending and it’s sort of strange to me to think that :)
