The 04/13/13 Joy Jar

12 Apr


Today was simply a kick back day. There was nothing in particular on the agenda except to enjoy the day and evening. Tonight, watching the tube and eating cheese and crackers and drinking a beer. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is ice cold beer.




He was a wise man who invented beer.






The big compliment came from the beer drinkers who didn’t know me. They wouldn’t drink or move when I sang. If they had their glasses in mid-air, the glasses wouldn’t come down.
Ethel Waters





I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts, and beer.”
Abraham Lincoln





Never underestimate how much assistance, how much satisfaction, how much comfort, how much soul and transcendence there might be in a well-made taco and a cold bottle of beer.”
Tom Robbins,
Jitterbug Perfume





Beer’s intellectual. What a shame so many idiots drink it.”
Ray Bradbury,
The October Country






I don’t think I’ve drunk enough beer to understand that.”
Terry Pratchett,
The Last Continent





Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.”

The 03/09/13 Joy Jar

8 Mar

Moi is kicking back and watching the cooking shows of Channel 9 of PBS. Lydia had a kickass spinach salad and America’s Test Kitchen has a yummy tomato mac and cheese recipe. While moi is watching she is eating kettle chips and washing them done with Corona Extra. Oh the sweet irony of watching cooking shows and eating potato chips. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ are potato chips.

Hot dogs and Red Vines and potato chips and French fries are my favorite foods.
Betty White

Nature, when she invented, manufactured, and patented her authors, contrived to make critics out of the chips that were left.
Oliver Wendell Holmes

Experts in ancient Greek culture say that people back then didnt see their thoughts as belonging to them. When ancient Greeks had a thought, it occurred to them as a god or goddess giving an order. Apollo was telling them to be brave. Athena was telling them to fall in love. Now people hear a commercial for sour cream potato chips and rush out to buy, but now they call this free will. At least the ancient Greeks were being honest.                                                                  Chuck Palahuniuk

Murder is like potato chips: you can’t stop with just one.”
Stephen King, Under the Dome

I’m a big potato chip girl. I don’t like chocolate and cakes and all that, but I have to have my potato chips. I’ve got bags in the back of my car right now! But I never beat myself up about it, because, look: You can’t give up every damn thing. You need something in your life that you like just because you like it!
