Hat tip: Pop Culture


I talk to myself because sometimes I need expert advice.

Sometimes I roll my eyes out loud.

I don’t need anger management. I need people to stop pissing me off.

My people skills are just fine. It’s my tolerance of idiots that needs work.

The biggest lie I tell myself is, “I don’t need to write that down, I’ll remember it.”

When I was a child I thought nap time was punishment. Now it’s like a mini-vacation.

The day the world runs out of wine is just too terrible to think about.

Even duct tape can’t fix stupid, but it can muffle the sound.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could put ourselves through the dryer for ten minutes, and come out wrinkle free and three sizes smaller?

“Getting lucky” means walking into a room and remembering why I’m there.

Number One Song

Wanted to do something fun today while I’m at a meeting for IOBG at Pittsburg Yacht Club. Just so you know the number one song on the day that I was born was;

Because of You by Tony Bennett.

It plays the song that was Number One on the day you were born. And, if there is a video available with the artist, it will play it for you. This is really a fun site. Enjoy the show.
