Marcia Learned Some Valuable Lessons Today..

(As in Brady..)
Here goes kids:
1. If you're driving in your car and suddenly feel overwhelmed with feelings of helplessness and depression, try changing the radio station; I don't know what my Vassar college dj was playing, but the singer made Morrissey sound like Goldie Hawn on crack

2. You'll never grow up or be happy until you feel selflessly protective of someone else (this came to me in this weird dream where I overcame a fear of heights by being lifted in this ride 50 feet in the air with a toddler, and my total focus was on making sure the kid was safe)

3. If you hate your job but are having a tough time quiting, take on a second job that you really hate, then quit it, and you'll really appreciate having only one job that you hate! (Is this one obvious?)

4. Don't think that if you passed a certain person in a 10k race at mile 5-1/2, you're going to do it each time! Even if you can run the last 400 meters in 1:16..

5. Crispin apples are: a.delicious; b.another reason to be proud of living in New York

6. No matter how bad things get, never EVER watch Laguna Beach, and if you somehow are forced to against your will, make sure you don't watch a marathon of Laguna Beach episodes.. You will definitely suffer irreparable brain cell loss as well as an odd desire to wear strawberry lipgloss

7. It's OK to watch Flavor of Love, especially to offset the effects of the waspy above mentioned program, but please refrain from watching numerous repeats of the same episode.. I know New York's sassy confrontations are particularly irresistible, but who are you kidding.. You just couldn't pull it off.. Could you?

Forget about Laguna Beach! What if someone forces you to watch numerous episodes of "The Gods Must Be Crazy"?

Was it Marcia? Or Marsha? Never knew. Just caught my error.

Interesting lessons that Marcia learned today and it shows that we can all keep learning.

One lesson Greg(or is it Graig), as in Brady, learned in the last few days was to try not to put his foot in his mouth. Sometimes we say things and then wonder what in the world were we thinking when we said it.

Was the toddler on that ride a 45 year old woman laughing hysterically as you screamed at the top of your lungs? What are friends for...

deb~ you can never watch that movie too many times! In fact, we're watching it tonight, get over here right now! hujambo mama!:-)

kevin~ did he really stick his foot in his mouth or does he just think that he did?

myrsurv~ the balance of relationships, you know.. and don't love at your friend's fears! no, you were comforting..

Kevin seems to be a bogus account. Interesting how one should analyze and pick apart someone's sense of humour.

If we keep dissecting everyone’s words and theories, we’ll never begin to truly appreciate people for who they are. We’ll keep thinking that they said something wrong, or that we said something wrong.

“Sometimes we say things and then wonder what in the world were we thinking when we said it.”

I think that only applies to people who say things out of anger or to hurt someone else with words purposely.

If you don’t have a backbone, you’ll always think someone’s talking about you, or someone’s thinking badly of you. If you keep up with that type of mindset, you’ll end up losing a lot of friends…or the ones you already have. Sometimes people say things to be funny, or to make you laugh and to relate to your situation.


1.Psychiatry. a mental disorder characterized by systematized delusions and the projection of personal conflicts, which are ascribed to the supposed hostility of others, sometimes progressing to disturbances of consciousness and aggressive acts believed to be performed in self-defense or as a mission.

2. baseless or excessive suspicion of the motives of others.
