In the spirit of not doing real work, I'm cleaning up my papers and notes.  Just some stuff I will preserve on the internets so I don't need the bits of paper...

For some reason this cracked me up at the time - maybe because L is super religious and she was trying to figure out why I had stopped believing in Catholicism while she had converted to it.  You know how converts are, and if you don't, you don't want to know.
L: What do you think happens when you die? 
Me: I don't feel qualified to answer that. 

Because it's funny:
"We been having this party for years.  It seems like every year it gets to be a little bit more fun, couple more people come.  It started off small, and the younger people are comin'...this year we had a girl come and everything..." - Trekkies

From my serious Chuck P phase, a couple from Lullabye:
"There are worse things you can do to the people you love than kill them." (128)
"No matter how much you love someone, you still want to have your own way." (148)

My two favorite quotes from American Movie:
"And then I realized one thing, you know, in a Christian-coated ethical arena, why you should you be successful while others are not?  Well you know what...I got over that guilt cuz you know what - hey, I don't know the answer...I don't know why I don't know cuz it feels like in a Christian..what Jesus would be saying is totally unchristian, man.  To try to get ahead because everyone is on an equal level playing field on equal par.  But you know what I'm not a Christian.  I'm half and half, man.  Uhhh..half the Satanist idea and half the Christian idea...  Satanist idea, which the purest of human endeavors, to Christianity, which is the purest of higher levels." (Might not be entirely accurate.  The person who wrote it down for me didn't really believe in punctuation so I'm trying to guess where it was to convey the tone.)
"Well, I been losing about 10 bucks a day for the last week.  Well, here's what I think of the lottery.  I think it's like when you play the lottery sometimes you win and sometimes you lose, but it's better than using drugs or alcohol, because when you use drugs or alcohol, especially drugs, you always lose."
