church signs

Posted on February 11, 2007. Filed under: Quotes, randomness, religion |

I saw a “funny-ha-ha” church sign on my way home tonight. It actually made my eyes roll. It read:

“Under the same management for almost 2000 years.”

for your age

Posted on September 20, 2006. Filed under: Quotes |

You know, reading through ragdoll’s sentiments of feeling old lead me to the comment that drives me quasi-crazy. I mean, it’s always meant to be nice and sometimes it doesn’t drive me crazy at all — it depends on who it’s coming from I guess, but the comment “she’s really great at that… especially for someone her age”. Now, I’ve never actually really felt or acted my “age” if my counterparts along the way were any true indication, and I think I’ve accomplished quite a bit in my life — regardless of age. It doesn’t, however drive me as crazy as a phrase I keep hearing from SO many people lately — that being “hey, that’s not a bad idea”. Implying that it’s a good idea? Or that the person isn’t willing to accept the fact that they hadn’t thought of it? Or is it just not a bad idea, but not QUITE good enough to be a good idea? Perplexing and intellectually stimulating. I know. That’s what I’m here for 🙂

Wal-mart fails in one market (a minor victory?)

Posted on August 15, 2006. Filed under: Politics, Quotes |

The August 5th edition of The Economist also has an article about the failure of Wal-Mart to succeed in the German market. I laughed at this part:

“Wal-mart went on to get nearly everything wrong in what the Bremen boffins called “a textbook case of how not to enter a foreign market.

The first error was to appoint a boss for Germany who spoke no German. Not only that, he insisted that his managers work in English. The next boss, an Englishman, tried to run the show from England.”

I read with a smug satisfaction that lack of research and “the American way” doesn’t work all the time — kudos to the Germans.

the myth of you and me

Posted on July 28, 2006. Filed under: Books, Quotes |

I’ve had an affinity for the main character of The Myth of You and Me because we seem so similar in so many ways. Then I heard this quote and it described me to a tee:

“You’re not a realist. You are a dreamer who doesn’t believe in the dream.”
The Myth of You and Me by Leah Stewart
