Greatest Hits

Today I bring you a list of some of my own quotes ... a list of my so-called greatest hits (to date):

“Oh! I do so wish I could walk in a place where the cacophony of nature filled my ears instead of the clatter of civilization.” ~

“I should be grateful that I am not stuck in an uninviting, dusty, generic cubicle box which, in turn, is located in a boring, drab and utterly average office building somewhere.” ~

“If I didn’t know better I would wonder who was slipping me some acid right before bed because if I try to describe many of my dreams to you … you would swear I was tripping on some illegal substance in order to bring such thoughts into my illusions. Hooray for my subconscious! It knows I do not like mediocrity.” ~

“Knock. By all means – keep knocking. I am not Jesus. The door shall not be opened.” ~

“I have this theory. When two people have loved each other as deeply as humanly possible there is an invisible rubber band (of sorts) that attaches itself to each participant of said love affair so that, in the event they are separated by circumstances, someday (as they move farther and farther apart) they will stretch the band to maximum capacity and it will snap them back (watch out for whiplash) into each others lives for some unidentifiable purpose.” ~

“I will be the first to tell you if you have spinach in your teeth or if your zipper is down or if you have hair hanging out of your nose and you will love me and appreciate me for it.”

“I am a shield maiden of Rohan. For that matter, I am Eowyn herself. You just don't know it yet.”

“Dear God ~ Please bring me a rich man who can fund all of my adventures. He still has to love me desperately though. I don't want a sugar daddy. Amen.”

“I love Drew Barrymore movies. I love Steven Spielberg movies. I absolutely detest the film E.T.”

“I don't see the glass as half empty. I don’t see it as half full. I see half a glass of water.”

“I want to fly on a broomstick and play Quidditch.”

“I have eaten beef, pork, chicken, turkey, fish, lamb, goat, rabbit (ugh), quail, buffalo, giraffe, crocodile, alligator, deer, gazelle, impala, zebra, wildebeest, flying ants, ostrich and I'm sure many others that are simply not coming to mind at the moment. I could never be a vegetarian.”

  1. There, Beth, was a time, one where I thought I was born to throw alarm clocks against the wall. I know!

    And your travels and wunderlust, also I know, deep in my Gypsy Soul, I know!

    I read all your posts, you are interesting as a trip around the whole world, you do travel, albeit for a time without moving (think of the energy saved and used elsewhere), but you do travel and with open windows, and I do read your posts.

    I was thinking that I should drop by, just before your word came. Thanks for the words.

  2. And as if that comment wasn't too long enough, here's the rest of it, I meant or should have added, Time Flies sometimes when that alarm goes off.

    I forgot to check the little email box.
