Three Quotation Thursday

"We are so vain that we even care for the opinion of those we don't care for."
Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach

I wonder why that is?

"Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of congress. But I repeat myself. "
Mark Twain

Isn't it a shame? Of course we can't lump EVERY member of congress into the idiot category but it seems like we hardly ever hear anything positive.

"I really didn't say everything I said. "
Yogi Berra

Remember I mentioned that we are having a reorganization at work? It's still going on and rumors are FLYING. Good heavens, it can't ALL be true. I heard four different things today about one individual. My mantra is to "keep calm and carry on" but honestly...I'm going to have to start doing SOMETHING to amuse myself and my colleagues...people are getting more distressed as days go by. I'm thinking of going with a sticky note system (thanks Susan S.) to write down each individual rumor, color coded by person, to see just how ridiculous things become before everything plays out. What do you think?


  1. I think you just need some industrial-strength earplugs to block out all that commotion and confusion. (Thanks for the mention!:))

  2. I like the mantra "keep calm and carry on"! I'm putting THAT on a sticky for my desk at work!

  3. The second quote is sad, but unfortunately seems to mostly true! I love your sticky note idea - that could be hysterical by the time everything settles down. Thanks for the sweet birthday wishes for Miss Cait. Kathy

  4. I love the first quote - I need to send that to my cousin - she is having co-worker drama as well and it would be perfect for her!

    I totally think you should do the post its!!

  5. I think #2 is right on the momey. I too hate to lump them all together but as my mom used to say; You lay with dogs you get up with fleas. I have to suffer if my co-workers fail so why not them?

    Lots of rumors here as well but I just wait till the ending to find out what it is. I like the sticky note idea too.

    I wonder why #1 is true but I know it is.

  6. Oh, I like the idea of writing down all the rumors! How hilarious that will be to look at later - you can really see how far-fetched things get. {of course I am always about documenting, note-taking, etc. haha ;-)}

  7. Belle,

    Sounds like your work place has become a madhouse!

    Keeping track of the rumors is a good idea!!!!(LOL) (For amusement purposes only!)

    Have a great weekend!

  8. HAH...the congress one is freaking funny!!! AND TRUE!


Please makes me HAPPY!
