So, here goes. My first post on my first blog.

This is really intimidating - especially having such an ostentatious title for the blog. First, the title wasn't my idea. It was a conglomeration of my husband and best friend; a play on words of my name. Second, try not to expect anything too wise or intellectual from me. I have my rare moments of genius occasionally (note the four dollare words in the previous sentences) - but for the most part I'm just a smart alec.

So, to inaugurate my blog into existence, I'll post some true wisdom from one of my heroes, Dave Barry. Enjoy.

Pearls of Wisdom
"Fourteen Things That It Took Me Over 50 Years To Learn"
1. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
2. If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be "meetings."
3. There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness." (my personal favorite!)
4. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.
5. You should not confuse your career with your life.
6. Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.
7. Never lick a steak knife.
8. The most destructive force in the universe is gossip.
9. You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe daylight savings time.
10. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.
11. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age eleven.
12. The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above-average drivers.
13. A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person.
14. Your friends love you anyway.

I'm so glad you are here! I always love seeing your artwork and your beautiful little girl :) I too love Dave Barry and my dh loves to use that line on me. I think it should be engraved somewhere in my scrap room--LOL!
