My mum always used to buy a record every Friday.-Elton John

We live across the street from a school. I was on my way home from a walk as school let out.

Boy rushing away from school: Excuse me, it's Friday right?

Me: Yes it is.

Boy: Oh thank god!


T.G.I.F. indeed little man. T.G.I. F. indeed.

I think women have to change their hairstyle from time to time.-Yulia Tymoshenko

I have a ridiculous amount of hair. I've spent my maternity leave learning new ways to style my hair. I should have been born in an era when I'd have had a maid to do it for me.

I catnap now and then, but I think while I nap, so it's not a waste of time.-Martha Stewart

5 ways babies are like cats

They like milk (okay that one was obvious).

They can fall asleep wherever they happen to be in the most bizarre positions and be perfectly happy.

When they want attention they get in your way when you try to read or use the computer.

They have a knack for falling asleep on you right as you realize you need to pee.

If you have more than one and one is sitting on your lap the other one will also want to sit on your lap regardless of the fact that there is not room for both.

A cat doesn't know what it wants and wants more of it. - Richard Hexem

I've often said that if there is such a thing as reincarnation I want to be a cat in my next life. They must have done something right to have people pamper them all day. Being a dog would be good too but you have to be careful you don't wind up coming back as a border collie or something and wind up having to herd cattle.

I try to bring the audience's own drama - tears and laughter they know about - to them.-Judy Garland

I just packed a box and labeled it: scarves, hats, and wigs. This is when I realized I'd make a fabulous drag queen if only I we're a man.

Has a woman who knew she was well-dressed ever caught a cold?-Frederich Neitzche

I may have told the first part of this story before.

I had a friend who's Dad was a vet. One time we went to his office to pick something up and of coarse had to check out all the animals. The sick dogs and cats we're in kennels recuperating from whatever ailed them. But there was also a potbellied pig wandering around (not sure if pigs don't like kennels or they just didn't have an appropriate one). I'd never seen a potbellied pig before (or since) and thought this one was incredibly cute until I noticed there was snot all over my foot because the piggy had a cold.

Daphne has her first cold and has been dubbed the piglet. Partly because she's making snorting noises due to a stuffy nose and partly because she keeps getting snot all over me.
