Smorgasbord


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.

Anton Chekhov, short-story writer and dramatist (1860-1904)

A business that makes nothing but money is a poor business.

Henry Ford, industrialist (1863-1947)

There are 2 ways of looking at any situation. My wife and I were sitting at a table at my high school reunion, and I kept staring at a drunken lady swigging her drink as she sat alone at a nearby table. My wife asks, "Do you know her?" Yes," I sighed, "She's my old girlfriend. I understand she took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear she hasn't been sober since. "My gosh!" says my wife, "Who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?"



So you see, there really are 2 ways to look at everything.

Tomatoes and oregano make it Italian; wine and tarragon make it French. Sour cream makes it Russian; lemon and cinnamon make it Greek. Soy sauce makes it Chinese; garlic makes it good.



Alice May Brock, author (1941- )

"hurtful 2 know he doesn't find me attractive as it has been my goal for so long to give a bald billionaire a boner."


Rosie O'Donnell, speaking of The Donald

Those seven things in the top pic are all I ever have time for anymore Judy! :)

I love the work schedule. That's about where I am with my house falling down around me.

I can do without Rosie.

rosemary said...

Yep, I agree with you...it's Rosie. Actually the donald isn't quite bald yet...he does still have the world's worst comb-over. I recently heard that he is trying to unload some of his casinos too...all because of smoking bans...yea right.

poopie said...

*snort* Definitely Rosie ;)

I read Rosie's remark on her blog and dang near laughed my Diet Rite out of my nose...

Those were great.
My favorite was:
"Tomatoes and oregano make it Italian; wine and tarragon make it French. Sour cream makes it Russian; lemon and cinnamon make it Greek. Soy sauce makes it Chinese; garlic makes it good."
Huggles and Love,

I liked the old girlfriend celebrating. We like to see things from our own viewpoint.

I've assumed all my old boyfriends are sorry they lost me. Then I met one guy's wife. Unfortunately, she seems to have aged well. (But I'm sure she has no personality. And she probably doesn't even blog.)

LOL, LOL..Well, I love the one that Rosie said, but I also like all of them. I am hard pressed to say what my favorite of the day is, except...(there is always an exception, isn't there...? lol), I LOVE theone about Garlic...That is so simple and yet right on the money in a way that tickled my fancy today.

I don't particularly like Rosie, but I have to admit, that's the best Donaldism I've heard in a long time.

Diane Mandy said...

I also vote for Rosie!

Kay Dennison said...

lol Love the cleaning list but it's a wasted effort in my case -- it never stays clean. I think I have to actually break down and clean my place. The Man is coming to visit in a couple weeks. And yeah, Rosie got it right!

Cravey said...

I like the one about the drinking ex-girlfriend! Especially since I'm off to my 20 year high school reunion this summer! eek!

PI said...

I feel a little ignorant but it is the great divide. What's a boner please?

Bob-kat said...

That Rosie certainly has a way with words! :-) I also like the one about there being two ways of seeing things as it made me smile!

mar said...

They are great but I am with your: Rosie's is my favorite!

Marie said...

I'm cracking up at the cleaning list... my keyboard needs a good shake or vacuum!!

srp said...

I like the two sides to the story one... have to go tell that one to my mom.

Cris said...

The picture tells it all!

Rosie has gotten more and more obnoxious over the years. I can't take more than 10 seconds of her at a time.
I'm not a fan of The Donald either, but if I had to share an evening with one of them, I'd pick Mr. Bad Hair and try to get some money out of him somehow. :)
