BOOKS AND BLOGGING PHILOSOPHY

Philosophy is defined as a theory underlying or regarding a sphere of activity or thought. Well, my theory is if I can add at least 10 new books to my Wishlist and move at least 5 older Wishlist selections to my TBR list every month, then life is a ice cream sundae. And if I can find those 10 books from at least 5 new blogs each month then that's the cherry on top.

NEW VISITORS AND OLD- WELCOME!

NEW VISITORS AND OLD- WELCOME!
Well, I've made it almost 5 years now, so for better or worse, I continue on. I tend to blog in spurts as the urge to be creative erupts. As I don't have an artistic bone in my body, you will see very few changes in the layouts. Hey, I'm a reader not an artist like so many of the awesome bloggers I follow. I know you don't always have the time but if you stopped and looked, take a half a minute and say your piece. Recommend a book that you have enjoyed or hated for that matter. Thank you to all who visit.
Oh, and I moved my Google Friend Connect info and share this buttons to the top, as without our friends, who are we?

UNDENIABLE ADULT TRUTHS- Brought to you by Robert

My husband's cousin retired 2 years ago from teaching and has since kept busy remodeling, traveling to places like Australia, China, England and more but he manages to send me an email or two a month that makes me wonder how in the hell he managed to stay single all these years as he really has a knack for cracking me up with little truisms that make you laugh, shake your head and totally agree with. 

Undeniable adult truths


1.    I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.
2.    Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
3.    I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.
4.    There is great need for a sarcasm font.--you think!
5.    How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?
6.    Was learning cursive really necessary?
7.    Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5; I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.
8.    Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.
9.    I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.
10.    Bad decisions make good stories.
11.  You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.
12.  Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again..
13.  I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.
14.  I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.
15.   I think the freezer deserves a light as well.
16.  I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with a drink, than Kay.
17.  I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.
18.  I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.
19.  How many times is it appropriate to say "What"? before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?
20. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front; Stay strong, brothers and sisters!
21. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants?  Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.
22. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.
23.Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket,  finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey; but I'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.
24. The first testicular guard, the "Cup," was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974; That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important Â….. Ladies quit laughing.

I got the same email, and I was looking for the original author. Like all the good ones, somehow everybody is taking credit for this one.
