For all he had a serious exterior, Terric was the guy you'd want to sit next to at a funny movie, just to hear him laugh."

She's real proud of that butt — she should be. She took me to one of her classes, and I got hooked. She's a Zumba instructor."Grant absorbed that information for a moment. "You do...Zumba?""It's great! Much more fun than PT. You just get going..." He did a little two-step maneuver on the city street, dancing to an unknown Latin beat. "Cha cha cha. Heeuh? Ana does this a little better than me..."Grant tried to hold it in. He really did.

Like you, we have enjoyed the air and the sunlight and the moonlight on the water; like you, we have heard the call of the seasons and have answered them. Like you, we have replenished the Earth. And like you, we must now witness the end of our Species, and pass from Earthly view." -Adam One"

I'm on the waw-path, and the price uv coffins is a-gwyne to raise."He was drunk, and weaving about in his saddle; he was over fifty year old, and had a very red face. Everybody yelled at him and laughed at him and sassed him, and he sassed back, and said he'd attend to them and lay them out in their regular turns, but he couldn't wait now because he'd come to town to kill old Colonel Sherburn, and his motto was, "Meat first and spoon vittles to top off on." He see me, and rode up and says:"Whar'd you come f'm boy? You prepared to die?" Then he rode on. I was scared, but a man says: "He don't mean nothing; he's always a-carryin' on like that when he's drunk. He's the best-naturedest old fool in Arkansaw--never hurt nobody, drunk no sober."
Author: Mark Twain

12. "We have a duty tonight. Everybody, and guys this for you as well because I know you know women. You have a duty tonight. You only have to tell one other person what you heard. Just tell them what you heard, or ask them have you ever heard of this? If the answer is no, share what you learn tonight.That's all. You don't have to do anything else. You just have to tell somebody else. You have to take whatever stigma people think that is there. You have to take it. It's not male or female. It has nothing to do with that. It has to do with, here's a disease you don't know about and you need to know about it. It's that simple. It's not rocket science.[Whoopi Goldberg on endometriosis awareness from the 2009 Blossom Ball]"

Today's Quote

Grown-ups love figures... When you tell them you've made a new friend they never ask you any questions about essential matters. They never say to you "What does his voice sound like? What games does he love best? Does he collect butterflies? " Instead they demand "How old is he? How much does he weigh? How much money does his father make? " Only from these figures do they think they have learned anything about him."
Author: Antoine De Saint Exupéry
