Favorite Quotes

Here are a few of my favorite quotes.  I won’t waste my time explaining each of these as I assume you all have a brain (not one shared brain, of course, but one inside each of your own head) and can figure them out for yourself.  Besides, in some cases my interpretation may be different… so read, think, and comment ~if you wish.  Enjoy.

    Ooh! A quote blog! I like a good quote blog. My favorite quote was the Proust.

    Today, if I did a quote blog, it would have one quote in it:

    One drink, two drinks, three drinks, floor.

    (I think Dorothy Parker said that.) (Not that I actually intend to have 3 drinks tonight and hit the floor…I just kind of feel like thinking about it right now.)

    Oh come on! Have some drinks & hit the floor ~ while you’re still young enough to recover…. We are having a costume party tomorrow night and I plan to have many, many, many drinks. =)

    B the W this is the 1st of a series that I will be doing on my favorite quotes. Look for more coming soon to a theater near you.
