  1. Thanks for the mention.

    I going to add to the dumb sayings by tossing in “It’s now or never.”
    That’s seems like a good phrase for those late night television marketers to use, buy not so good for making decisions in life.

    I don’t think most things that happen to us are a one time shot. I think if we fail at something, we just have to wait until the same circumstance comes around again, then we get it right the next time.

    On the other hand, if Chuck Norris tells me to get out of his way, and I see a roundhouse kick sailing towards my head like a guided missile, I may just act like it truly is “now or never.”

  2. “Have to give a speech? Want to get laid?” – made me laugh. Oh, I hate the dumb sayings / signs with a passion. There’s a whole isle of those dumb things in Target in decorations section. I guess if you want your guests to think an idiot lives here, sure, put some up. Ughhhhhh. Didn’t know there were people out there like me! *clouds open up, and chorus plays*
