Posts Tagged 'Quote of the Day'

It has been what seems like one of the longest weeks I have had in eons. I am beyond looking forward to this weekend.

The idea of coming home tonight with a splash of Bushmills on ice and a Guinness to back it up is simply put, a wonderful thought.

The end is in sight. Just gotta keep plodding. So how about a little motivation to get us through the day aye?

And both to put a smile on your face, and a little secret to keep in the back of your mind when you meet folks who trying to ruin this last day of the week for you…

Critics are like eunuchs in a harem; they know how it’s done, they’ve seen it done every day, but they’re unable to do it themselves.

Now thats fine stuff indeed!

Ok Folks it’s Friday!

I’ve been an absolute bum on giving you good material this week, so I am going to try to make up for it with one helluva TGIF Quote edition

It’s TGIF ladies and gentlemen,

It’s also my last day at my current job.
Between the new job, surviving the deadly storms of last night, and just maybe a little something new to blog about, inspired by several storm-chasers and other NOAA Spotters I have networked with via Twitter, this is a good thing. A New dawn so to speak.

Lets celebrate shall we?

Change, when it comes, cracks everything open.

Success is meaningless if you can’t sleep at night because of harsh things said, petty secrets sharpened against hard and stony regret, just waiting to be plunged into the soft underbelly of a ‘friendship.’

Yes friends it is that time of day once again

1 more week until I start my new digs. Will the TGIF Edition fade away? Possibly not. So until then lets get the party started early!

To do anything in this world worth doing, we must not stand back shivering and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in, and scramble through as well as we can.

While everyone else is choosing shenanigans we’re going to stay on topic here. It’s Friday by God and I need some good motivation.

New Job, new stuff at home. March was a red letter month for me, so I want to sound off with something good for the day

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

And since I’m getting back on the crazy train how about something catchy that sort of sums up how I feel about things

Ya’ll be good!

“The immigrant’s heart marches to the beat of two quite different drums, one from the old homeland and the other from the new. The immigrant has to bridge these two worlds, living comfortably in the new and bringing the best of his or her ancient identity and heritage to bear on life in an adopted homeland.”
