Life in < 140 characters

Because I’d like to write something more intelligent than “argh,” “ack,” “pfft,” “bleargh” or “waaa-waaaaaah!” (i.e., Debbie Downer music), here’s life in a nutshell.

Note that I stole quite a few of these lines from somewhere else. Because, hey, if they said it better, who the hell am I to change perfection?

Aimed at no one in particular, since most of them won’t see this anyway.

1. I listen to every song you post on your wall. And download the very few I don’t already own.

2. “Every time you walk in the room
I could never be sure of a smile
You were never the same way twice
I’m falling in love, night after night
And it’s crazy.” — Blue Rodeo, “Try”

3.a. “Tomorrow you’ll realize what I’m worth. And I’ll be with the guy who realized it yesterday.” My favorite Twitterfeed, The Notebook

3.b. Same source: “Don’t wait for the right person to come into your life. Be the right person to come into someone else’s life.”

3.c. And again: “The only 3 things a guy should wanna change about his girl is her last name, her address and her viewpoint on men.”

3.d. One more time, with feeling: “I’m currently making some changes in my life. If you don’t hear from me anymore, you’re probably one of them.”

4. “If God meant the day to be perfect, then he wouldn’t have invented tomorrow.” — Girlfriend Facts feed

5. “If you see me out on the town
And it looks like I’m burning it down
You won’t ask and I won’t say
But in my heart I’m always somewhere with you.” – Kenny Chesney, “Somewhere With You”

6. Do people really believe their own B.S.? I promise, if you say something enough times, it still doesn’t make it true.

7. I’m changing all my passwords to “incorrect” — so that I when I can’t remember, my computer tells me “your password is incorrect.” (Can’t take credit for this but can’t remember where I got it!)

8. “Imagine a cool mountain stream. The air is crisp and the water is so clean you can clearly see the face of the person who is annoying you below the surface.” — The illustrious, incredible Silver Blue

9. My soul’s value ain’t on clearance, and my heart ain’t gonna be waiting at the store for you when you come back. Pay up or step off.

10. Hey Prince Charming, I know Google Maps sucks, you’re lost and you’re too proud to ask for directions. Just tell me where you are and I’ll come rescue YOU.

Any other words to live by to offer a girl?

    All men are stupid and stink like poo.

  2. Goddess :

    Gurl, you said it!!! I’d love to see “talk” and “action” mirror each other but I don’t think I will live that long to see it!

  3. Silver Blue :

    Goddess, I *LOVE* you. To quote Gaga (which you have done), It’s been a long while since I’ve come around, and you made my day by quoting me. I’m sitting here beaming. (Hey, it’s better than sneezing glitter, so don’t knock it! 🙂 )

    You’re an sin-spiration to those of us who wish we had the gumption to try to make it on our own. I’m proud to call you friend.
