Quote me as saying…

Intro lines escape me at the present…I’ve erase half a dozen on grounds of stupidity and lack of inspiration (same reason I haven’t pulled the trigger on almost as many posts this week), so on with the quotes…


“Quote me as saying I was mis-quoted.” – Julius Henry (Groucho) Marx

“That’s called a response without telling you anything.” e-mail response from work colleague

“…liver good, kidneys “unremarkable” (just love that term – it makes me feel almost normal)…” – Nancy I. (dear friend, currently enduring chemo treatments)

“She showed no respect for a basic Olympic value and unfortunately she is out. She made a mistake and in life we pay for our mistakes.” – Isidoros Kouvelos (Greek mission chief on questionable tweet by Greek triple jumper) Isn’t irony fantastic???

“God sees everything we do.  That’s freaky.”

(me:  “Why?”)

“Because He’s staring at us!”  Stevi D.  (the Nematode)

“… and whether she will get an Oscar, I don’t know.” – Boris Johnson, Mayor of London (on the Queen’s Olympic performance)

7.21.12, “This Week”

Most of the stuff we hear, read, speak in a day is fleeting and need not be recorded for replay or review.  (Paying attention, local news?) But there are those statements which rise above in defiance, or definition of a week .

Of these statements, and in this space, I offer the first installment of a series titled “This Week” (Witty, no? It’s in quotes – get it?  It’s “This Week” in quotes.)  OK, moving on…

“In answer to your question, the answer is yes.”e-mail response from work colleague

“I’m on my way to being edgeless.  Spherical.”The Byronic Man

“That’s why I can rewrite one sentence 10 times and never really be happy with it.” Burke Krohe:  Writer

“Perhaps many more people would like to come and not only see our waterfalls but try our parking” – Gallus Strobel

“Nobel Peace Prize?  You didn’t earn that.  Somebody else made that happen.”Jon Lovitz

“You had a furrowed burro.”Myah P.  (a “Furrowed Brow” perhaps?)

And there you have it.  “This Week”, installment number one.
