I love some of the sayings, adages and phrases, that people in all walks of use to say and still say.
Some of you may remember or heard of some, or most of them.
Snug as a bug in a rug.
Don’t let the bed bugs bite you.
The bees knees.
The cat’s meow.
Fell ass over tea kettle.
Shake a leg.
Break a leg.
Well blow me down.
Smell a rat.
Well I’ll be dipped in shit.
It sucks big time.
Shit or get off the pot.
Shake that booty.
Full of piss and vinegar.
Life is like a bowl of cherries.
Well I’ll be damned.
Dressed to the nines.
Fly like an eagle.
Come up for air.
I’m sure there are plenty more of them.
Maybe some of you fine people out there can think and/or come up with.
I actually got the idea to write this post, while taking a shower.
Everybody wants blockbusters. I like to see a few pictures now and then that have to do with people and have relationships, and that’s what I want to do films about. I don’t want to see these sci-fi movies, and I don’t want to do one of those. I don’t understand it.
Why do people, whether young or old, kids too, throw their trash (candy wrappers, coffee cups, paper bags on the ground, when there is a trash bin, barrel or whatever to put it in. I have spotted empty paper coffee cups placed under the hanging trash receptacle, instead of in put in it.
Is it laziness? Is it stupidity? Or is it that they don’t give a shit, thinking/knowing someone else will pick it up and put it where it belongs.
Shit like that really irks the hell out of me.

A pessimist is a person who has had to listen to too many optimists.
From the email inbox:
Mick and Paddy have made a promise to their uncle.
They had an Uncle Seamus who was a seafaring gent all his life and a while
before he passed away, he made the boys promise to bury him at sea.
Of course he did pass away and the boys remembered to keep their promise.
So off they set with Uncle Seamus all stitched up in a burial bag and loaded
onto their rowing boat.
After a while Mick says, “Do yer tink dis is fer enuff out, Paddy?”
Without a word Paddy slips over the side only to be standing in water up to
his knees. “Dis’ll never do Mick. Let’s row some more.”
After a bit more rowing Paddy slips over the side again but the water is
only up to his belly, so on they row.
Again Mick asks Paddy, “Do yer tink dis is fer enuff out Paddy?”
Once again Paddy slips over the side and almost immediately says, “No dis’ll
neva do.” The water was only up to his chest.
So on they row and row and row when finally Paddy slips over the side and
disappears! Quite a bit of time goes by and poor Mick is really getting
himself into a state when suddenly Paddy breaks the surface gasping for
“Well is it deep enuff yet, Paddy?”
“Aye it tis! Can yer hand me da shovel?”
There are a lot of funny people and a lot of unfunny people.
Some of them are women and some of them are dudes.

What do our opponents mean when they apply to us the label
Liberal? If by Liberal they mean, as they want people to believe,
someone who is soft in his policies abroad, who is against local
government, and who is unconcerned with the taxpayer’s dollar,
then … we are not that kind of Liberal. But if by a Liberal
they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone
who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who
cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their
housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and
their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break
through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies
abroad, if that is what they mean by a Liberal, then I’m proud
to say I’m a Liberal.
– John F. Kennedy
The above quote by the 35th President of the US, should be heeded
by the right-wingers, and the so-called Tea Party politicians. Sadly
it is not their want. They rather see people lose their jobs, deny them
health care, food and other necessities of life.
They get their jollies off, bashing the current president, repeatedly
lying for just about everything he says and does. It just doesn’t make
any sense at all.
I could go on, but I’m sure you’ll get what I am saying.

I think people always believe what they want to believe, don’t you?
