TGIF Quotes

Photo by fran_soto

"Always strive to excel, but only on weekends.” ~ Richard Rorty

"Not for nothing is their motto TGIF - 'Thank God it's Friday.' They live for weekends when they can go do what they really want to do." ~~ Richard Nelson Bolles

"I think we're seeing in working mothers a change from 'Thank God it's Friday' to 'Thank God it's Monday.' If any working mother has not experienced that feeling, her children are not adolescent." ~ Ann Diehl

"Weekends don't count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless." ~ Bill Waterson

"I was in Kashmir last weekend. Went to visit one of my sweaters.” ~ Albert Brooks

Good ones Angie! I needed that. Happy Friday to you! Like you, I've gone missing this week. But I've been busy changing my name and getting a makeover (just stop by my place and you'll see what I mean!) ;-) Enjoy your weekend.

Oh, the sweaters...laughing on that. I keep going around my house singing, "It's the most wonderful time of the year..." School starts next week. :D :D :D
