To be followed by more great quotes from Katharine Hepburn. She had spunk.

"Life is hard. After all, it kills you" Quotes by Katharine Hepburn

--Why slap them on the wrist with feather when you can belt them over the head with a sledgehammer.

--We are taught you must blame your father, your sisters, your brothers, the school, the teachers - but never blame yourself. It's never your fault. But it's always your fault, because if you wanted to change you're the one who has got to change.

--To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.

--Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then.

--Only the really plain people know about love - the very fascinating ones try so hard to create an impression that they soon exhaust their talents.

--My greatest strength is common sense. I'm really a standard brand - like Campbell's tomato soup or Baker's chocolate.

--Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get - only with what you are expecting to give - which is everything.

--Life is to be lived. If you have to support yourself, you had bloody well better find some way that is going to be interesting. And you don't do that by sitting around.

--It's life isn't it? You plow ahead and make a hit. And you plow on and someone passes you. Then someone passes them. Time levels.

--If you want to sacrifice the admiration of many men for the criticism of one, go ahead, get married.

--Drive on. We'll sweep up the blood later!

--Life can be wildly tragic at times, and I've had my share. But whatever happens to you, you have to keep a slightly comic attitude. In the final analysis, you have got not to forget to laugh

Dude, it's killer shit. This guy came and talked with us yesterday in my American historiography class. Mohr was like his favorite professor at Tulane--they had seminars together and Mohr helped him with his dissertation.

But yeah, LBJ is a manipulative sonuvabitch. I like him. He's not brilliant like Nixon was, in a higher IQ-than thou sort-of-way, but he knows people.

Anyways, you people should check it out.

Romeo and Juliet-Dire Straits

juliet when we made love you used to cry
you said I love you like the stars above Ill love you till I die
there's a place for us you know the movie song
when you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong?

Heard this song on the radio today. I also have a live cover of it by edwin mccain burned on a CD right now. Anyways, it's running through my head right now, and I thought I'd make a post about it. It's fairly meaningless, but far less meaningless than this job is. So there ya go.

So there's this thing called life

Right. And It's right here, right now, and I'm living it. Goddamn, if only that were true. But I'm sitting here in a personal injury law firm typing letters and trying to find ways to slack off. I'm underpaid and I would be overworked if I truly worked as hard and productively as I could. But I'm apathetic to the situation and I'm still faster than the two others. So hah. Watch me slack.

We have a temp who won't answer the phones. When Kimberly goes to get the mail, it's just me and her. And she won't answer the phones. So when Jimmy's needy-ass clients call and I can't get them off the phone without hanging up on them--and another call comes through--she won't drop anything she's doing to pick up the goddamn phone and most likely just transfer it to VM. It's not that freaking hard people. And if this causes my christmas bonus to be smaller-b/c we have to hire a temp--I'm going to be soo pissed.

It's just after 11 and I think I get to take another week of early lunch. Kim hates taking it that early, but I like to get on with it and get back.

I need a personal assistant. I want to make the temp my bitch. I could be so much more efficient if I had a runner to go get shit and file shit for me.

This place doesn't make me any nicer. Maybe I should go work with puppies. Maybe then I'd turn into a nicer person instead of more bitter.

Mantra: Next weekend I get to see my kindred, next weekend I get to see my kindred. On another note, something that dribbled out of my head while working. Dribbling, because of the grey matter drooling out of my ears, down my neck and onto my nice new work pants.

I think you're beautiful
In all the ways that beauty is true.
In all the ways that light hits your eyes
And I can see forever.
Beauty in the furrows of your hair
As your fingers push it back from
your face, as your breath catches after running.
In the wrinkles of your forehead as you amuse yourself
with life and all of its confusing and beautiful disasters.
