late night....

so i'm trying to go to sleep, i swear i am. the lights are off, i'm not reading my book, i'm not watching tv... i've been laying there for like 20 minutes.... the fan is softly humming in the background (that's good, i like a little white noise). then i've got sleep apnea boy next to me, whirling and whooshing, and buzzing away (that's making it a little hard to fall asleep). sarah is laying on my feet and she starts to dream (probably of running free after she re digs the hole under the fence for the 10th time) and she starts shaking and whining (now i know i'm not going to get to sleep). this is the point where i start to giggle.. then i find it hard to stop giggling... my bedroom, which should be my place of solitude and peace has become a mass of twitches ticks and snorts(this is so typical my life). so i figure screw it and i get up.
so i'm catching up on the headlines on msn and come across Ellen DeGeneres tearful story of her rescue doggy gone wrong and in trying to find out a little more i run across the following quotes from Ellen. now let me say that at this late hour these were cracking me up, i'm sitting here laughing out loud by myself (i know, that is not really that unusual). I hope they brighten your day (or night) as well... ok, off to find a quieter place to sleep...

My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was sixty. She's ninety-seven now, and we don't know where the hell she is.

Procrastination isn't the problem, it's the solution. So procrastinate now, don't put it off.

Stuffed deer heads on walls are bad enough, but it's worse when they are wearing dark glasses and have streamers in their antlers because then you know they were enjoying themselves at a party when they were shot.

The only thing that scares me more than space aliens is the idea that there aren't any space aliens. We can't be the best that creation has to offer. I pray we're not all there is. If so, we're in big trouble.

I don't need a baby growing inside me for nine months. For one thing, there's morning sickness. If I'm going to feel nauseous and achy when I wake up, I want to achieve that state the old fashioned way: getting good and drunk the night before.

I'm a godmother, that's a great thing to be, a godmother. She calls me god for short, that's cute, I taught her that.

The way I see it... If you need both of your hands for whatever it is you're doing, then your brain should probably be in on it too.
