The 12/07/13 Joy Jar

8 Dec

The last few days in Seattle have been the coldest that it has been in months. Today was particularly cold. Luckily for moi she is reviewing Heat Holder socks. http://drwildareviews.wordpress.com/2013/12/08/dr-wilda-reviews-heat-holders-socks/ Moi spent the day running around. Today’s deposit in the ‘Joy Jar’ is worm socks.

I’m also a fan of ridiculously coloured and patterned socks.

I always saw Michael Gambon wearing madly psychedelic socks, and I always thought that’s it is one of the few areas where men can really express colour and have a bit of a dandyish quality to their outfit.
Daniel Radcliffe

Women speak because they wish to speak, whereas a man speaks only when driven to speak by something outside himself like, for instance, he can’t find any clean socks.
Jean Kerr

I’ll tell you one thing you can’t do: you can’t put your shoes on, then your socks on.
Flavor Flav

You choose your friends by their character and your socks by their color.
Gary Oldman

With everybody having a Facebook and a Twitter, I feel like regular people consider themselves stars. It’s a live, real-time upload of every time we buy a pair of socks, the most telling sign that we’re losing our politeness. When you know everything about somebody, you can talk to them any way you please.
Jeff Ross

I don’t think people need to know what colour socks I’m wearing today; I don’t think people need to know what shower gel I’m using. There’s too much information in the world, and there’s no magic or mystery anymore.
Noel Gallagher

Obviously, people who commit crimes should be punished. Even people who steal socks and ‘Snow White’ videos should probably do time if they have priors, especially serious priors. But the punishment has to fit the crime, and the standard has to be the same for everyone.
Matt Taibbi

I like the light that comes off metal shutters at siesta time in the summer, having a break from driving in the shops at motorway services, the odour of petrol at petrol stations, rolling down little slopes. I hate it when you tread in a puddle and the water soaks your socks.
Audrey Tautou

“One can never have enough socks,” said Dumbledore. “Another Christmas has come and gone and I didn’t get a single pair. People will insist on giving me books.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

“Roland glares at Connor and Connor glares back. Then he says what he always says at moments like this.
“Nice socks.”
Although Roland doesn’t look down right away, it derails him just enough for him to back off. He doesn’t check to see if his socks match until he thinks Connor isn’t looking. And the moment he does, Connor snickers. Small victories are bet­ter than none.”
Neal Shusterman, Unwind

“Granny always said finding justice was as tough as putting socks on a rooster.”
Jessica Maria Tuccelli, Glow

“There was still plenty of water in the basement, and I felt it soaking me from the knees on down. If someone wanted to torture me until I told them a critical piece of information, all they would have to do is get my socks wet. It feels terrible.”
Lemony Snicket, Who Could That Be At This Hour?

“Friendship is like putting butter on your socks before you slide them on. Sure, we all do it occasionally, but most of us would rather eat breakfast bare-handed at least once in a while.

The 05/07/13 Joy Jar

6 May


It was 87 today in Seattle and in terms of Seattle weather, it was approaching hot. Other parts of the country might say it was downright pleasant. Ice is wonderful on a warm day because it cools everything. Moi is grateful that ice is so readily available. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is ice.

If I offer you a glass of water, and bring back a cup of ice, I’m trying to teach you patience. And also that sometimes you get ice with no water, and later you’ll get water with no ice. Ah, but that’s life, no?

Jarod Kintz, Ah, but that’s life, no?

He who cannot put his thoughts on ice should not enter into the heat of dispute.”
Friedrich Nietzsche,
Human, All Too Human

Like there’s actually a need for Greenland. You can get ice at 7-Eleven.”
Steve Kluger

ice contains no future , just the past, sealed away. As if they’re alive, everything in the world is sealed up inside, clear and distinct. Ice can preserve all kinds of things that way- cleanly, clearly. That’s the essence of ice, the role it plays.”
Haruki Murakami,
Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman

One of the reasons there are so many terms for conditions of ice is that the mariners observing it were often trapped in it, and had nothing to do except look at it.”
Alec Wilkinson, The Ice Balloon: S. A. Andrée and the Heroic Age of Arctic Exploration

You never really know your friends from your enemies until the ice breaks”

Eskimo Proverb

If you are going to walk on thin ice, you might as well dance”
