Mr. Frost and Mr. Newton

A certain Mr. Frost once said, "In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on." Clever man, that Mr. Frost...

1. "No one is ever going to love you as much as you love you."

2. Mutual and addictive attachment is often and unfortunately misconstrued as love.

3. That last glass of champagne is always the one that does you in. Next time, don't have it.

4. "Drunk" does not equal "busy".

5. Actions speak louder than words, yes, but it is reactions that speak all the much louder.

6. Curly hair helps shape the illusion of laid back-ness and super relaxation.

7. Being different is not the same thing as being crazy. And regardless, neither is so bad after all.

8. "One must always climb the ladder step by step."

9. Always keep all your options open. Especially when it comes to lunch.

10. "Never tell your sisters you are going for a birthday event as they will not let you leave the house in your usual comfortable attire and insist you shower and shoe up."

11. In the company of a credit card, you will find it almost impossible not to whip it out and purchase some super flaky French biscuit chocolates.

12. Nursing a hangover with 3 consecutive glasses of the Diablo off-set by a steak, all kinds of carbs and a sinful medley of desserts is the only way to do so.

13. "Sex is the ultimate expression of death." (The wise-ish words of a certain quel qu'un.)

14. The secret dimension of travel and airlines also believes quite adamantly in karma. Getting a free day 'here' will always be supplemented by losing a free day 'there'.

15. Christmas shopping is a wonderful excuse to leave every retail endroit you enter with a bag of its wares.

16. "If it's a broken part, replace it. But, if it's a broken arm then brace it. If it's a broken heart then face it..."


  1. Sister - soon to be home :)Sunday, December 14, 2008

    no 16 is my favorite line of that whole album.

    What I learned this weekend:
    1. People are not judging you as much as you think they are. The same way the world does not revolve around you.

    2. Drinking is a lot more fun than studying.

    3. Studying is a lot more difficult after drinking.

    4. Just because you don't title a relationship as a relationship, it doesn't mean you are not in one. And that's ok.

    5. An unexpected Christmas present from someone unexpected gives you indescribable WOW feelings.

    6. There is a way around everything. Even prison can be replaced with weekend prison. Well, especially in the USA.

    7. Jason Mraz can make my morning, day and night :D
