oh my goodness, I just LOVE your quote! Can I steal it and use it on my blog?

Good list by the way.

Sure! You have my expressed written consent to use something Einstein said on your blog *wink*.

Jackie said...

about your new "terror alert"? when bert's flying a plane into the pentagon you won't be laughing quite as hard....

magnetbabe said...

Mom! I'm shocked at you. Just because Bert has a unibrow doesn't make him a terrorist.

And here I always thought Ernie was the suspicious one... hmmm...

Nat, I didn't realize you had an affinity for broccoli...the things you learn! I feel closer to you already.

Had crazy weekend at a wedding in small town Minnesota. Very Bargman-esque, picture that for a second, wouldya?

No wonder I drank so much.

That old pick-up line? He got that from my great-grandfather. Einstein usually followed it up with, "Wanna see my slide rule collection?"

Bargman-esque I don't need to picture. I lived through such a weeding, barely and without much dignity afterwards.

Don't go to the library thing website without several hours of free time. Glad I'm pushing you to work harder!

Mr. Schprock~
If you replaced "truth" with "ass" you may be really onto something with the whole pickup line...
