Let’s break up the work week. Lay one of your favorite quotes on me. It could be from a movie, poem, song or even something you wrote.

  2. Something I wrote:Sweet teardrops of heavenporing down on melike a thousand angels cryingfor a soul that's never freeIf I date to gaze upon such a sea of emerald eyes would you wash away my sorrowif I drown inside your skiesWould you take my breath my darlingand kiss away my painor would the flowers placed upon melet their petals smile in vainShould I contemplate tomorrow or sink further into darkor do you grant the only promisewhich will mend this broken heart(ok. That was written like 5 years ago. I ain't that flipping sad anymore. Please forgive me if there are typos. That was from memory banks only. )

  6. Lately I've had the song "Enjoy yourself" stuck in my head! I saw it this weekend when I watched Everyone Says I Love You. Go look it up on iTunes… the ones by Doris Day and Louis Prima are my favs."Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself… it's later than you think!"

  8. Since people always associate me when they think of her (ha!) I love Mother Teresa's quote that says, "People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered. Love them anyway." I try to remember this when I encounter those that drive me absolutely batcrap crazy!
