"Doesn't he need a bazooka?"

“When I say I realized I was an atheist when I was a teenager, I’m simplifying things a bit, because I was always an atheist. My big revelation wasn’t so much a realization that I was an atheist as it was a realization that other people weren’t.”

This quote was brought to you by our discussions of churchgoing at work. My coworker was totally cool with my being an atheist, because he’s one too, but he was also puzzled by the idea that I had been raised that way. Who knew atheism could be the default setting?

MOM: I’m trying to be less … where are my keys? … less … oh, I should mail this. I’m trying to … what? Oh, I thought you … oh here are my keys. Anyway, I’ve been trying to be less scattered lately.

AMELIA: It’s not working.


AMELIA: Oh, I should probably get my shoe out of the freezer.

AMELIA’S SIBLINGS: We are not sure what should scare us more … that you stuck your shoe in the freezer or that your remembering that it’s in there suggests it wasn’t an absent-minded moment.

AMELIA: I stepped in gum. I’m trying to freeze it off.

“I can’t read Emily Dickinson. Every time I try I get a few stanzas in and start wanting to scream ‘THESE AREN’T POEMS! THESE ARE SYMPTOMS!’”

Today's quote brought to you by my response to my sister's Emily Dickinson Facebook Flamewar. Do not criticize Emily Dickinson to your former high school English teacher. It gets ugly.

“No, but seriously, if you had a sense of smell, what color would my aura be?”

Today’s quote brought to you by a discussion of some of the crazier theories of synesthesia. It almost made sense in context, I swear.

“If my life wasn’t funny it would just be true, and that is unacceptable.” – Carrie Fisher in her odd but fun memoir, Wishful Drinking.

“Oh, I may have gotten some flour in your teapot while I was getting it all over the kitchen. So if that cup you’re making turns out to be Earl Gravy, you’ll know why.”

My sister is always looking out for me.

“Oh Dalt Wisney, no!”

Today’s quote brought to you by my sister and I watching a weird episode of Batman: TAS, in which the villain reminded us of a supervillainous version of Walt Disney* so much that we renamed him. We aren’t even sure what his name is. We don’t care.

BONUS QUOTE: "You see, a supervillain is a series of tubes ..."

*Well, more supervillainous.

“So, basically, we have an omnipresent, omniscient mega-conscious being who’s a compulsive picker.”


Today’s quote brought to you by The Hive, who is just full of surprises.  And here you thought your picking was destructive. I don’t think the Band-Aids On All Ten Fingers or the Mittens trick are gonna work in this case.


I also really hope this is the only compulsion The Hive has.  Can you imagine an OCD hive mind?  “There must be exactly ten billion of me at all times, dammit!”

Yes, I may not be blogging, but I am writing!
