Best Thing I've Heard All Day

"Relax. There's no debtor's prison in America and they're not going to eat you."

I absolutely love that phrase. It's awesome.

That's a relief, otherwise I'd be there. But... zombies DO eat people!

I think this is a lie. There may not be debtors prison but those rat b*stards will eat you....(actually they chew you up and spit you out, but the result is pretty much the same - flushable mush...

Hmm...perhaps describing myself as optimistic is a bit of a stretch eh?

Dear Public Knitting: I want to make t-shirts. Or bumper stickers. Maybe have it tattooed right under the "Mom" tattoo on my shoulder.

It's especially beautiful coming from the man I'm answering to for a possible screw-up four years ago that I'm trying to untangle now.

Oh, shit. He never mentioned zombies.

You're right, Mintlatte... even if you believe the bumper sticker, it simply doesn't take into account zombies.

Or IRS agents.

I think my second favorite comment, passed down to me from my mother from her mother, is: "Nothing is an emergency unless children are burning."

It does tend to put things in perspective, but with the unfortunate side effect of making me wonder why children would be burning . . .

1) I like that one too. It's going in my repertoire.

2) I don't know how much babysitting you've endured, but there are times when the children burning may seem like a good thing.

3) What's you're first favourite?
