Hold The Line & my best attempt at "zen"

AM I the only Toto fan out there? 

Heard this while driving Peanut to school today.  [Turns out there's some creep-O stalking little ones walking/biking to and from school.  freaks.

Anyway.  Still blah.  I did put my running shoes on because I don't learn from my mistakes[not as I should anyway].  Then a wise "voice" told me to take, take, take um off.  UGGGG.

I did capture this photo from my backyard last night.  Love it.


So here's my sad post for today [kinda funny though]:

The Zen Of Sarcasm

1.  Do not walk behind me, I may not lead.  Do not walk in front of me I may not follow.  Do not walk beside me either.  Just pretty much leave me alone.

2.  The journey of 1,000 miles begins with a broken fan belt and a leaky tire.

3.  Don't be irreplaceable.  If you can't be replaced.  You can't be promoted.

4.  Always remember you are unique.  Just like everyone else.

5.  If you think nobody cares that you are alive, try missing a few car payments.

6.  Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.  That way, when you criticize you'll be a mile away AND have their shoes.

7.  If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again.  It was probably a wise investment.

8.  Some days you are the bug.  Other days you are the windshield.

9.  Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.

10.  A closed mouth gathers no foot.

11.  There are two theories about arguing with women.  Neither one works.

AND

12.  Never under any circumstance, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

Sorry about stalking Peanut, won't happen again. Great post, looks like you're extra cranky not running. I'd suggest something with honey. Maybe some Nutella.

I like that wise voice that told you to takem' sneakers off.

number 12 from personal experience?

you can wear the shoes all you want... DONT RUN IN THEM YET! Sheesh, how long you wanna be layin up in bed?

Sick M-Fers out there. Sad you can't go to school by yourself anymore.

Number 9 - Everyone is strange - you just have to get to know them.

Dash said...

Number 6 brought about an actual 'laugh out loud' for me. Good stuff.

Dire Straits has a great song about number 8. Words to live by.

Hope you're feeling better soon.

bad bad weirdos!!

Keep those shoes for walking. Running later.

No running makes you cranky BUT still don't run. It will be there waiting for you when your ready.

RunWithKate said...

Good job not running!

Jeff - DangleTheCarrot said...

Adrienne said...

Hating the stalker! AHH, mother's worst nightmare!

Good Zen sarcasm sayings!

Natalie said...

Jamoosh said...

Hold the Line is good. I also like "99" and "Africa."

"4. Always remember you are unique. Just like everyone else."
Story of life at the running store. Everyone has 'the worst feet ever' or 'my doctor said he'd never seen anyone as bad as me'. People need to get over themselves.
Oh well. Happy Thursday = almost Friday!

Patrick Mahoney said...

Allie said...

Pshhh...I eat sleeping pills and laxatives for breakfast.

ShutUpandRun said...

I dunno. Sleeping through a crapfest in your bed might be fun.

Amy said...

#4 is elementary school education in the US of A.

#11 is half wrong. There are many ways, yet none work.

Thanks for putting a smile on my face. I couldn't decide which saying I liked the best.

Johann said...

Great post and lovely photo. I'm impressed that you actually took your shoes off again. Hang in there and have a good weekend!

Black Knight said...

A laxative on the night could not be a good idea I think. Great pictures and, of course, great backyard.

AM-GoalsfortheWeek said...
