when i was a child …

i should’ve read winnie the pooh. despite what dorothy parker says about his books.

aren’t these quotes just lovely?

“When late morning rolls around and you’re feeling a bit out of sorts, don’t worry; you’re probably just a little eleven o’clockish.”

“You can’t help respecting anybody who can spell TUESDAY, even if he doesn’t spell it right; but spelling isn’t everything. There are days when spelling Tuesday simply doesn’t count.”

“I am a Bear of Very Little Brain, and long words bother me.” (this is the quote that sent me on a pooh quote-hunt in the first place. i think it’s sweet, even though i’m fond of several big words.)

“Poetry and Hums aren’t things which you get, they’re things which get you. And all you can do is go where they can find you.” (actually very true. i get the hums in the strangest places.)

if i ever have children i think we’ll have to investigate the stories of the 100-acre wood together. and also read “the wind in the willows.”

speaking of children, that reminds me of something i decided tonight.

before i get married, i need to learn how to make frosting like a sane person.
