I love quotes. It always seems someone, somewhere, has said exactly what you're thinking or want to say, in exactly the same tone, with the exact wording that will put your thoughts out there. The problem is finding the right quote for what you want to express!
I'm bringing this up because of a Facebook page. House MD Quotes. This page features quotes from the popular drama series House MD, featuring Hugh Laurie. I recently discovered this page, and, as I am a fan, and a "nitpicker", (I like dissecting and examining things in detail. Sort of like solving puzzles to understand them better. I take whatever it is apart, and examine each piece.) I "liked" it. Right away I had entered several of my fave quotes from the show. And I got noticed!
(As a fan, I love to watch the dvd's of the series, moving from one episode to another, in order, with the Closed Caption option on. That way I can read when I can't quite make out what the actors are saying. I've come across some hilarious, but also poignant quotes that I believe are quite true, and very applicable to life.)
For example, "If I wanted to talk about it, why didn't I bring it up?" (character Thirteen from the episode "It's a Wonderful Lie"), or one of my faves, "Normal is boring!"
Today, when checking out my page on Facebook, I noticed I was now an Administrator of the House MD Quotes page. WOW! I have been given access to manage the page, edit it, and so forth. This may not seem like a big deal to many people, but if you think of the crud that makes it's way around Facebook, the responsibility to NOT screw up becomes very clear.
Besides, I like the honour. Don't really care what you think.
So back to the idea of using quotes. All of us at some time or other, had something we've wanted to say; something that needed saying, but could not find the words. "It's on the tip of my tongue." or "I know what I want to say, I just can't think of how to say it!" Sound familiar? It should. It's happened to you. I guarantee it!
When it does happen, don't you just feel like an idiot? I mean, all those years in school, constantly having your speech, grammar corrected by teachers, parents, etc? And now, as an adult, you can't even think of the words for what you want to say? Makes me want to hide. But that's when humour comes in handy.
Remember those words in the previous paragraph. Chances are you won't be able to think of the words when you want to.
Here's the link if you're a fan of House and are curious about these quotes. Remember, any material that does not apply to the site's content will be deleted. I know. I'm one of three who have that power! Buahahahahaha
Hey if anyone out there knows Rob or Tanya Thompson (three kids), could you let me know where they've moved to or what they're number is? I'm trying to contact them and they moved out without letting me know, which was not a very nice thing to do to me.
Don't you just hate it when people owe you money, but act like they're doing you a favor by NOT paying you back? Peachy!
Does anyone have a solution to cellulite out there?
Why, oh why , are there so many morons in the world? I wish I could give details as to why I’m asking this question, but I’m afraid it’s directly related to my Marketing Research Agent job, and thus would breech confidentiality. But trust me. There are many morons out there!
Made a slow cooker full of my homemade soup today and it is delish! It sure comes in handy when it’s cold outside and I’m pretty sure I won’t feel like cooking for most of the week. Just make the dish, stick it in the fridge and take out what I want, when I want.
You may have noticed I haven’t been posting any comments related to current news lately. That’s because, well, I find it’s been boring lately. Which is actually a good thing if you think about it. It means there’s been no horrendous crimes, no scandals, etc. Makes for thin papers too, which makes them lighter and easier to deliver!
Holy cow was No Frills busy this past weekend! Kudos to Justin again! This guy knows how to treat his customers! Pass the oreos please.
Shit, I’m turning 46 on October 1, 2012 and I’m bloody proud! I have all my own teeth, (ok, sort of, fillings can’t be considered “real”), I can still do a hard work out, and keep my weight down, I’m in full control of my own mental faculties……HEY QUIET I’M TRYING TO WORK HERE! Damn elves!........I can still appreciate the value of a mug of hot chocolate on a freezing cold day, or the feel of a man’s arms wrapped around me, (and other parts I might add ).
Thought of the day: A few quotes from House MD that I find, may give you a bit of insight into my true personality, no matter what you think of me, I will always be honest with anyone about myself, unless I think it’s none of your damn business:
"This is the only me you get."
"People interest me. Conversations don't."
"That was awesome. I gotta start pretending to care."
"We are who people think we are."
“People like talking about people. Makes us feel superior. Makes us feel in control. And sometimes, for some people, knowing some things makes them care.”
“I only get mad when you waste my time. Couldn't care less about yours.”
"Love to hear more of your theory, but I don't give a crap."
