Sex, mice, and Rock and Roll to you too!

That Kliban line is one of our household rules and has served as a foundation for raising several Javalings (provided you don't plant em too deep) Our rules are as follows:

1. NO DEAD BODIES!!! (Prime rule - most obvious!)

2. Never eat put anything larger than your head in your mouth. (Kliban inspired)

3. Never eat anything blue. (There are no naturally ocurring blue foods)

4. Always wear clothes that match your food!

5. Never come between Dad and his coffee!

Play by the rules and you won't get hurt!

...and yes, we love those small fur bearing mammals sometimes mistaken for a meatloaf!

--The knowledge that the administration of justice and fairness no longer matters, must move a man to reject all he has known and accepted, and risk becoming a pariah in the eyes of his peers. For to refuse that risk, to continue as he has, is to die within himself--

*Most days you're the statue, when you ARE the pigeon enjoy it.

*A wise man learns from other peoples mistakes. You don't live long enough to make them all yourself.

*I am so smart, S-M-R-T --I mean S-M-A-R-T(Homer)

*The future is varying shades of grey

*It is too late to worry about or fix yesterday, so who cares if hindsight is 20/20, no one gives a <font color=black>s</font>hit about yesterday (my father)

*Only 2 things are certain in life. Death and taxes. one can be avoided, the other can't. You make your choice based on where you live. (my grandfather)

*Stupid mistakes cause death. Good ones make taxes. The Gov't likes good mistakes. (my grandfather)

*Live everyday as if it's your last, cause if it's your first then you just got a real <font color=black>s</font>hitty start to life with today. (my grandmother)

*Weddings and funerals are identical. They both offer a chance of 2 things. 1> Family re-unions 2> Looking back on your life at what you've done, and either enjoying it or saying "oh <font color=black>s</font>hit" at your choices. (my aunt)

Ok, my turn now.

-Details MAKE difference.

- Don't afraid to ask stupid questions. You won't look smarter repeating old goofs.

-If fairy asks you "what do you want" - don't be shy - they never ask twice.

- Sheeple are friendlier then you think.

- There are only a few things, that will never be outdated. It's for YOU to make a list.

- If you don't know what to do - do anything. There always is a chance to do a right thing.
