DAILY QUOTES… “I am the happiest creature in the world. Perhaps other people have said so before, but not one with such justice. I am happier even than Jane; she only smiles, I laugh.” ― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

“It’s not all bad. Heightened self-consciousness, apartness, an inability to join in, physical
shame and self-loathing—they are not all bad. Those devils have been my angels. Without them I would never have disappeared into language, literature, the mind, laughter and all the mad intensities that made and unmade me.” ― Stephen Fry, Moab Is My Washpot
“I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t laugh.” ― Maya Angelou
“You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching. March to the beat of your own drummer. And stubbornly refuse to fit in.” ― Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass

G U A R A N T E D T O M A K E Y O U L A F F….

Our mom needed a new mattress for her antique bed, so my
brother, Josh, and I decided to buy her one as a gift. The
problem was we weren’t sure what to get, because it was an
odd size. Fortunately, my brother happened to be visiting
my mother one day when I called home.

“Measure the bed frame before you leave,” I told him.

“I don’t have a tape measure.”

“You can use a dollar bill,” I suggested, “each one is six
inches long.”

“Can’t,” he replied after digging through his wallet, “I
only have a ten.”😐

Thursday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from???  “Wait. What’s her name?” 

ANSWERRed Dragon!  I wasn’t as fond of this 2002 film as I was of “Manhunter”, Michael Mann’s 1986 adaptation of the novel by Thomas Harris…but I have to admit that director Brett Ratner’s idea to weave a closer connection between the first Hannibal Lecter story and the second was pretty clever.

Hannibal (Anthony Hopkins) speaks these lines to his jailer, Dr. Chilton (Anthony Heald) after being told that there is a young female FBI agent wanting to meet him. Guess what her name is?

Friday’s Quizzer is…

It prods a man’s hand, and it robs him of sleep,
It makes him climb mountains and travel the deep,
It makes him go wander down deep in a cave,
and do almost anything stupid or brave,
The longer denied the greater it grows,
It makes a man learn ’till he thinks that he knows.
