I will be going to bed soon, I promise. But this whole Internet-while-lying-down thing is really, really unhealthy for my productivity.
http://www.defectiveyeti.com/ had a little contest, where folks revamped old sayings. Here are a few of my favorites:
Always a bridesmaid, never the bride --> I'm not the hero of this story. (Brent and I had another lengthy conversation while driving back from Federal Way. His way of coping with the realization that the world he grew up in as a child didn't actually revolve around him? "I just go about my day imagining I'm the hero.")
The coast is clear --> The porn is deleted
Come hell or high water --> Even if they send in Chinese tanks
He's yesterday's news --> He's a stamp-licker
Looking for a needle in a haystack --> Trying to find a clock in a casino
Nice guys finish last --> No one remembers Ivan the Wonderful (for Nick)
