Knitting Up A Storm!


Thursday, May 05, 2005

Today is my eldest daughter's 6th birthday. Wow! How time has flown by is beyond my understanding. So after dinner, gift giving and cake eating, I'm heading down to the Maryland Wool and Sheep Festival. Yeah me.
I don't have any knitting content, so I thought I would leave you with this list sent to me:

16 THINGS THAT TOOK ME OVER 50 YEARS TO LEARN:
by Dave Barry, Nationally Syndicated Columnist
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative onthe same night.

2. If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race hasnot achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be"meetings."

3. There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

4. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never wantyou to share yours with them.

5. You should not confuse your career with your life.

6. Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance. (I wish Ihad!)

7. Never lick a steak knife.

8. The most destructive force in the universe is gossip.

9. You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compellingreason why we observe daylight savings time.

10. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggeststhat you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emergingfrom her at that moment.

11. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make abig deal about your birthday. That time is age 21.

12. The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender,religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside,we ALL believe that we are above average drivers.

13. A person, who is nice to you, but rude to a waiter, is not a niceperson. (This is very important. Pay attention. It never fails.)

14. Your friends love you anyway.

15. Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur builtthe Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.

16. Thought for the day: Men are like fine wine . . . They start out asgrapes, and it's up to the women to stomp the crap out of them until theyturn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
