Amazing Grace....

Tis better to be silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt."
- Abraham Lincoln

I am so hormonal at the moment that I could quite easily hunt down major terrorists and give them the arse kicking of their life. 'Know what I mean? Sure you do. So I leave you with the stupid things people have been quoted as saying in lieu of anything calm and rational, or vaguely so, that I could write. Tomorrow, the new front house stairs will be going in. Ethel, best friend, did ask if I would be home for this event and I said no, I don't feel I will be able to handle workmen and hormones at the same time. I mean, I want the steps in and pissing off workmen with hormones from hell won’t get that done will it?

Starting with The Mount Isa Mayor – see Monday’s blog for more -

But now I've got men telling me they've got a right to be selective and they don't want me pushing beauty disadvantaged women on them."
He said Mount Isa provided an opportunity for women to transform themselves.

"It's a compliment," he said. "A woman can come here and transfer themselves with love and devotion in marriage from an ugly ducking to a beautiful swan. It can have a complete transformation for a woman."

“I saw a woman wearing a sweatshirt with 'Guess' on it. I said, "Thyroid problem?" - Arnold Schwarzenegger, California Governor and actor

"The world is more like it is now then it ever has before." - Dwight Eisenhower, 34th President of the United States.

"I get so tired listening to one million dollars here, one million dollars there, it's so petty." - Imelda Marcos, former First Lady and a political figure in the Philippines.

"For most people, death comes at the end of their lives." - Radio broadcaster, UK

"I owe a lot to my parents, especially my mother and father." - Greg Norman, Golfer

A proof is a proof. What kind of proof? It's a proof. A proof is proof. And when you have a good proof, it's because it is proven." - Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chr├ętien

My high school student councilor to my mother and me:-

Councillor: “Based on these tests your daughter will never amount to anything, Mrs Jones.”
Mrs Jones: You are both wrong and an idiot.

Good one mum…where would I have been without you?
Go ahead: Live with abandon. Be outrageous at any age. What are you saving your best self for?

When you go terrorist hunting, be sure to take a camera crew. I think we'll need to see this.

Remarkable. There are no doubt a LOT of people suffering from foot in mouth disease. And some never learn to just leave the foot there!


Regina Carlysle said...

I second what Anny said. Love that first quote. Sometimes it's just waaaaay better to be quiet than to show off a rampant ignorant streak.

Think we should all hop a plane for a visit. It would be worth it to see you go after the terrorists and the boob with the big mouth! Shall we bring out guns and baseball bats, dear? We could help cold-cock that turkey.

Hilarious! Love the quotes. And I really love the pictures of Stewie. He's the best! :)

Your mother was clearly a woman of intellect. High school counselors are not in general very bright. Keep telling me my youngest is depressed becasue he likes to wear black. No. He likes to lead you people around like sheep so he can laugh at you.

Good quotes.

Here here for your mother.

I would have loved to have known your mom.
