This is a bit early, as D’s birthday is Saturday, but that’s okay. D posts funny quotes from her friends on their birthdays, and at some point (four years ago, apparently), I decided it was only fair for someone to do the same for her, as she is a very funny person herself. Enjoy this small sampling of the amusing things she has said this year.
Me on Sunday, reflecting on my cryptic tendencies: “Wait! I know how it feels to be a successful murderer! You feel like you’re extremely clever but you can’t tell anyone about it!”
I thought that last one needed to go in a quote post. XD
Fun fact: two of the top three most important books I read this year were ones I learned about through automated Goodreads recommendations. God is sovereign over all things, including algorithms.
Me, setting down something next to Teefty: “Here’s a bag of cotton balls for you to make friends with.”
After that, he started talking about inappropriate topics, but then he trailed off and said, “Oh, I shouldn’t talk about this… There are little kids in the car.” (In my journal, I noted that I would have “slapped him upside the head for that remark.” Fortunately for everyone else, I was off playing basketball.)
I was probably even cryptic in the womb.
What? NO! …Well, on second thought, he might rather be inside a whale than at a twenty year college reunion.
I found it on Wikipedia, so it’s true history!
I still don’t know if my fiction essay outline will meet the professor’s content expectations, but I did just beat my personal best score in Solitaire!
I just stalked on Facebook that guy from Creed camp who had the really attractive nose. He’s still attractive. His nose is still great. I wasn’t going to stalk him, but my mother encouraged me to do so.
Right now I’m snorfling over every single line in my 2015 murder mystery. It’s always so much better than I remembered, even though it has more structural issues than the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
Also, you know you’ve been doing too much schoolwork when you read a paragraph in your novel about Lindbergh’s flight and think with a panicked lurch, “I DIDN’T CITE THIS!”
I need to get off for the night, but I’ll be praying for you, and I’ll return soon with a nihilistic, despairing free verse poem about doughnut theft.
In case you want this for my quote collection: “You absentmindedly colored your toenails with permanent marker, so we don’t have a lot of faith in you right now.”
I’m not TRYING to beat a dead horse, I just do it anyway.
There are a few books in the library about belly dancing. They don’t go out much.
I often yell, “Yes!” while reading my journals when I start preaching about things. I forgot I had an audience. Even though I was just talking to it.
Did it hurt when you broke the fourth wall last year, Panda?
I wonder cumulatively how many more Apples to Apples games we would have played if I didn’t have to stop and take notes.
This is my favorite part. That probably says very bad things about me.
I used the word “egregiously” egregiously tonight.
