Brilliantly Creative / Technical Writing

Your Mom Has Big Marshmallows & Other Profound Thoughts

I have nothing to say today. Well, not really, just nothing profound, and I feel compelled to say something. And since I have nothing profound of my own rattling around in my brain, I’ll borrow some profound thoughts from some other people:

If you’re a person who doesn’t like language, does that make you anti-semantic? —Chris Austin

Poop on a stick. Poop really thick. Poop a big brick. —Amy Perryman

I want my girls to grow up recognizing the beauty of strength, the exuberance of endurance, and the core confidence residing in a well-tended body and spirit. … I want them to enjoy food that is delicious, feed their bodies with wisdom and intent, and give themselves freedom to indulge. —Kristin Armstrong

I don’t want [my daughters] to be empty-headed, self-obsessed, emaciated clones; I’d rather they were independent, interesting … a thousand things before ‘thin.’ —J.K. Rowling

Oh. My. God. Ouch. Terrible. —Lance Armstrong, after finishing the 2006 NYC Marathon

Writing is the only thing that, when I do it, I don’t feel as if I should be doing something else. —Gloria Steinem

When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth. So what the hell, leap! —Cynthia Heimel

I’ll keep running because it’s good for my marriage. I’m not sure if I get really crabby when I don’t run. Or if my husband just gets more annoying when it rains. —Shoe ad

I am running for my skinny jeans. There are many forces that motivate you to run. Emotional stability. Mental clarity. Skinny jeans. Luckily once you motivate to lace up your shoes, the running part has a way of taking care of itself. —Shoe ad

Women are like tea: You don’t know how strong they are until you put them in hot water. —someone profound

OK, some of those were really stupid, but I love them because they come from people you don’t know, and I love those people, and that’s all that matters. I hope you enjoyed the serious ones.

  1. That ad about being more cranky when you don’t run or your husband being more annoying when it rains cracked me up. I’m a cranky mess when I don’t get my run in.

  2. I have to say, I absolutely adore reading your blog entries. You keep me on my toes. I never know what to expect! Hope you’re doing great today and I hope to see you in the morning.
