Some Things I Know
Some Things I Know
I'm an idiot... this much I know. I often make the same mistake over and over again, am passion's bitch, or just say the most inappropriate things at social events. I'm geeky, pedantic, self-absorbed, neurotic... and lately I've been watching too much TV (DAMN YOU TIVO!!!)
However... I have learned a few things and come to a few beliefs in my 37 years besides how to mathematically produce an isoquant. Some of these include:
Simple is better than complicated.
Buy quality, it's the better value. It's better to have one sturdy, classic Coach bag than ten bags from Wal-Mart, or even Target for that matter. It's better to have one plain navy Brooks Bros. suit than five suits from the Men's Wearhouse.
Target is better than Wal-Mart.
Whenever possible, buy from local, family owned stores.
Natural fibers are better than synthetics.
Cotton type is far more important than thread count when choosing luxurious sheets; the best is Sea Island, followed by Egyptian and Pima.
Own at least one item of cashmere.
Own at least one thing from Tiffany's, even if it's only a keychain.
Line dry your laundry rather than machine dry whenever possible.
If you see someone broken down at the side of the road who looks in need of help, stop and help, especially if it is a woman.
Whenever a child asks you to buy her a book, buy the book.
In personal conflict, you'll never regret taking the high road.
In an unfamiliar and uncomfortable social setting, think about what James Bond would do or say and follow his lead.
When faced with imminent death, your life doesn't really flash before your eyes, but you get total recall of all the people you've ever loved.
It's difficult to underestimate the intelligence of Americans en masse.
Challenge your beliefs: if you are politically liberal, read National Review or research the Heritage Foundation; if conservative, read the New York Times or St. Petersburg Times, or go see the latest Michael Moore film.
Don't cheap out on tires for your car; regardless of how sophisticated and advanced your Mercedes is, or how simple your old, rusty Subaru Rat is, their tires are the only thing that touches the road. Get the best tires you can afford, and cheap out on the battery or exhaust if you must.
Chicks love (good) chocolate more than men can fathom. Not even our love of beer can rival a woman's love of chocolate.
Treat a woman well - with respect, attentiveness, tenderness, and honesty - and she will give back to you far more than what you give to her, or what you deserve.
Treat a woman really well, and she'll eat box for your birthday!
So, gentle reader, what are your thoughts on this? Agree/disagree with any of these "Voodooisms"?
Care to share any of your own wisdom?

speaking of tires... on my to-do list tuesday. |
my only bit of wisdom is... if you're feeling sad, buy yourself some pretty/sexy lingerie. it does'nt matter if you have somebody to share it with or not; it's for YOU. (ok: so this only works for women lol)
is it PERMISSIBLE to own only one suit? i guess it depends though on whether you have to wear it all the time or not.
love your voodooisms thanks for sharing.

demonicsexkitten - what kind of car? I can recommend a tire type (which is much more important than brand). Permissible? Yes, but impractical. But only the most conservative law firms require suits every day, even Goldman Sachs has dropped the suit requirement. Point is, one classic, well-made suit that fits a man well, will start at around $500.00... and that one suit is better than a bunch of $200 suits.|
MzHunyHole - thank you for visiting, and please come back And of course you know that the anal sex comment, while often true, was added for comedic value.
