Random Quote Sunday: On the Road Again….

What state I’m in when you read this will depend entirely on what time I get out of bed on Sunday. Everyone hope that I got up when I was supposed to and made it out of the door on time.

But did you think I could make it in and out of Atlanta without something odd being said? Of course not, you know me better than that, don’t you?

“They’re nice women, but they would have bought the chickens.”
(M and I neither one are much for decorating with china/glass/ceramic/wood/straw/etc chickens)

“I will have a social life for one whole day.”
(I’m seeing four different friends in about 8 hours on Sunday in Chicago)

Random Quote Sunday: I had better be in Atlanta

“I keep a snowshovel in my trunk for just such occasions!”
(It’s Wisconsin…)

“It’s not often you get your lullabye cds to go!”

Random Quote Sunday: Rhetorical Questions

My orthodontist had originally recommended oral surgery. I declined, not really seeing the need to break my otherwise perfectly healthy lower jaw and move it less than 5 mm. Lo and behold, as we started moving the upper teeth, my lower jaw began to move forward and realign on its own. (This wasn’t something I really noticed myself but the good ortho happily informed me Thursday morning.)

“Isn’t it amazing what happens when you move the teeth out of the way?”

Of course, said appointment also led to

“I’ll be in the ibuprofen bottle if anyone is looking for me.”

and then….to the ever fabulous WarMaiden, I wondered about libraries

Can I not just be offended that you don’t have something I find offensive?”

Random Quote Sunday: Keyboard Aggression

Ah the start of the holiday season…where some people seem to think it is to the benefit of the library staff that they bring their overstressed child in to scream hysterically. And you wonder why I wear a knitted headband (hides the earplugs).

Me to coworker:
“You’re typing in a really frustrated manner.”
(I couldn’t see her, just could hear her typing…)
