done been readin' again...and a QUOTE!

"To use a baseball analogy, America's most successful citizens were born on third and think they've hit a triple."

-Toby Young
How to Lose Friends and Alienate People

Yup...I finally got around to reading that book...the one mentioned above, the one I bought on a whim from a bargain bin because it seemed so connected to my own personal experience, as a joke anyway. I've always been a bit short tempered and crass, and my friends are typically pillars of patience for dealing with me, so when I saw that someone had actually written a book with a title that we had joked about as applying to me, you know I had to buy it. It sat on my desk in bookends for 3 years until I saw the movie preview, with Simon Pegg (who was bad ass in Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead!)

Hmmmm...I'll have to check out these Simon Pegg movies, since I have no idea who he is. I figured you were getting quotes from Bartlett's or something...I didn't expect "How to lose friends and alienate people"!
