The Best Motto

Gd, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannon change
Courage to change the things I can
And the wisdom to know the difference.

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

You woke up this morning - Congratulations! You got another chance!

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Thursday! The weather is rainy and blah-y, but not too hot. Sniff had to be neutralized twice today: once when our mom came to visit (she is allergic to cats), and then to clean the bathroom in peace. By neutralized I mean locked in my room. Both times he just went to sleep in the cat house and gifted me with his "I am the king of the universe, and you are just a puny human look" upon being released. George, meanwhile, continues to give us occasional grief re: food freshness; and yesterday I received the intelligence report telling me that his counterpart at RBS does the exact same schtick.
Currently trending at #1: David Beckham, because, according to his wife Victoria, he does all the cooking! Well, in my opinion, that deserves fifth or tenth place, but not the first, because some guys cook for fun. If he was doing all the cleaning, all the laundry, and all the diaper changes - that would deserve the top place; cooking - not so much.
Trending at #2: Phil Robertson - because it looks like he turned down NFL for Duck Dynasty. Good for the redneck! Because now he still gets to rake in the money - but he can also shoot to his heart's content and, most importantly, not be bound by the rules of political correctness - double win.
Trending at #3 is Fifty Shades of Grey - because another bunch of rumors surfaced as to which actors are going to play the lead in the forthcoming movie. Well, considering Hollywood's almost unbroken track record of about twenty years of making sure to screw up even the silliest books when they try to produce a movie (Twilight comes to mind), I don't think it would make that much of a difference of who is going to play - as it is going to stink to high heavens regardless.
There are at least 10 "sure-fire ways" in which American tourists "embarrass" themselves outside of US - like being offended at being pushed in China, or not knowing at least a few phrases in French, or expecting to have a check ready shortly after a meal, or eating in instead of going out - wow, how bloody uncivilized of us! How dare we be offended at being pushed, or wanting to go on with our day after finishing our food, or opting to dine in, or not bowing down to the supreme snobbishness of French! Why the heck don't we just stay in our own extremely unenlightened country instead? And when people from more civilized corners of the Earth venture into our rough shores, we, in turn, would dearly appreciate the absence of BO, or the absence of men who think being disrespectful to women is fine and dandy, plus we would like the ability to walk during lunch breaks unhindered (just to name a few points).
Out of six items that are "essential" for every kitchen, I only got two - geez louse, how did I manage to cook all this time?!!
Justin Bieber is the celebrity that "most often reported to be dead on Twitter" - I guess there are plenty of people out there who express their wishful thinking in 140 characters or less.
And, finally, the maternity dress in which Kate posed for the latest pictures, is selling out - what a blinking surprise.
Coffee this morning in my striped glass from Target.
