I just have a little excerpt from the "American Eccentrics" book (by Carl Sifakis) that I mentioned earlier...

"There is a joy in being mad that only madmen know." - David Wilbur

*giggles (quite madly)*

This time dad was the one giving pointed looks in my direction. He actually suggested I should post it to my LJ, with a little quote by myself afterward saying: "It's true." - Nefhiriel

*mutters* Well there IS this bizarre kind of joy in being...mad. Erm, of course, I'm only pretending. Honestly. *g*

While I'm being random and mad, here are some Mark Twain quotes:

Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint.

I must have a prodigious quantity of mind; it takes me as much as a week sometimes to make it up.

I was gratified to be able to answer promptly, and I did. I said I didn't know.

It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.

It's no wonder that truth is stranger than fiction. Fiction has to make sense.

My books are like water; those of the great geniuses are wine. (Fortunately) everybody drinks water.

Only kings, presidents, editors, and people with tapeworms have the right to use the editorial "we."

The rule is perfect: in all matters of opinion our adversaries are insane.

And an insult, also by Mark Twain....

He is useless on top of the ground; he ought to be under it, inspiring the cabbages.


Anyways... Mom has an appointment at the dentist tomorrow, so we're going to town for most of the day (we get to have lunch with a good friend of ours--YAY!). They got even more snow there, so I think I'll try to get some pictures of the "
Minnesota Mountains" (commonly called parking lot snow banks), and maybe post them on here. :)
