Quote of the Day

From my dearest Teena Weena:

When her totally precious son told her that he didn't like any of "the losers she'd been with" and "should have just stuck with my dad."

She said, "Thank you, Michael."


"I'd rather be alone and scratching my ass with a stick than be with your father."

She made me snort!!!!!!!!! At work!

As the end of the year approaches, we schedule our performance reviews.

And I'm pleased to report that I have told my boss all about my accomplishments. They are as follows:

  • looked cute
  • laughed loudly
  • became slightly less confused, and
  • checked my email.

No, I'm not kidding. I really said that. However, I didn't put it in my written performance plan. Just in an instant message. I'm so proud. Surely my father, who had an actual career, is, too.

Beautiful things are difficult.

Translation from Greek (pick one):
  • Beauty is painful.
  • Beautiful things are difficult.
  • What the hell was I thinking taking on this task?
  • Every good idea eventually degenerates into very hard work.
  • Everything worth anything costs dearly.

OH, the humanity.

On Sunday afternoon I discovered my Uglydog in bed with an obviously satisfied and SMOKING talking Edna doll. Oh the humanity! Er, doll-ity?

Such a scandal.

Stay tuned.

Just because I haven't been posting doesn't indicate that I haven't been writing! Stay tuned for something I'm referring to as "Why Tolerance is a Crock of Shit."

A quote from the wise Miss Piggy:

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,
but it may be necessary from time to time
to give the stupid or uninformed beholder
a black eye."
