Thursday Thirteen: Things I Have Learned


Thirteen of the Many Things I have learned as I have matured.

1. I’ve learned to not sweat the petty things, and not pet the sweaty things.

2.  I’ve learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is stalk them and hope they panic and give in…

3.  I’ve learned that one good turn gets most of the blankets.

4.  I’ve learned that no matter how much I care, some people are just jackasses.

5.  I’ve learned that it takes years to build up trust, and it only takes suspicion, not proof, to destroy it.

6. I’ve learned that whatever hits the fan will not be evenly distributed.

7. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t compare yourself to others – they are more screwed up than you think.

8. I’ve learned that depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.

9. I’ve learned that I don’t suffer from insanity, I enjoy it.

10.  I’ve learned that we are responsible for what we do, unless we are celebrities.

11. I’ve learned that artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.

12. I’ve learned that there is a fine line between genius and insanity.

13.I’ve learned that the people you care most about in life are taken from you too soon and all the less important ones just never go away. And the real pains in the ass are permanent.


  1. I gotta learn that good turn. Blanket domination, here I come!

  2. I think I've got the blanket turn down. Great list. I'm off to share your list with my husband.

  3. For me depression is rage without the homicide, but there you go. :)

    Now which one of you showed my husband-like-person the blanket trick?

    Happy TT,
