The Learning Curve

I like to write my own stuff, but when Supergirl sent me this, I thought, I couldn't have said it better.

I've learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is stalk them and hope they panic and give in...
I've learned that one good turn gets most of the blankets.
I've learned that no matter how much I care, some people are just jackasses.
I've learned that it takes years to build up trust, and it only takes suspicion, not proof, to destroy it.
I've learned that whatever hits the fan will not be evenly distributed.
I've learned that you shouldn't compare yourself to others - they are more screwed up than you think.
I've learned that depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.
I've learned that it is not what you wear; it is how you take it off.
I've learned that you can keep vomiting long after you think you're finished.
I've learned to not sweat the petty things, and not pet the sweaty things.
I've learned that ex's are like fungus, and keep coming back.
I've learned age is a very high price to pay for maturity.
I've learned that I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy it.
I've learned that we are responsible for what we do, unless we are celebrities.
I've learned that artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.
I've learned that 99% of the time when something isn't working in your house, one of your kids did it.
I've learned that there is a fine line between genius and insanity.
I've learned that the people you care most about in life are taken from you too soon and all the less important ones just never go away.
And the real pains in the ass are permanent.

I love this one: "I've learned that I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy it."
Happy Holidays, Lee.

I have learned that it makes me really sad that I have no will power or restraint and can't help myself from gobbling up all at once the archives of a blog I've just found and that I love, instead of savoring it little by little to make it last.

Damn myself to hell.

yeah my parents still blame me for stuff that breaks in their house and i dont even live there!

-invitation- i would loooooove for you to submit a nice recipe (perhaps caribbean!?) for the recipe + story book that i'm trying to make.

Hayden said...

good one! I had a good laugh on number one in particular...

Caribbean Colors said...

Supergirl: payback is a biotch
Cream: Happy Holidays and ENJOY your insanity!
Heather: Happy reading
Ale: I would love to submit a recipe and I still blame my kids too even though they live 3,000 miles away and haven't lived at home for 8 years
Hayden: that's one of my favorites too, also the one about not comparing your self to others. We've had quite the discussion in the store today about that one with new businesses opening up and trying to compete with the old established ones here on Caye Caulker.
