A New Quotes Post

Usually I like to save these for Friday, but whatever. It's close enough. This is a mix of favorite quotes and Facebook statuses from friends and students.

(FYI, this one will only make sense if you watch "Arrested Development.")
Well, it's my own fault. When I choose to name my wireless router after Buster Bluth, I really shouldn't be surprised when it starts having crippling panic attacks. I guess I could have named it after Gob, but then it would have been hooking up with all the other routers in the building and shooting lighter fluid everywhere.

(Disclaimer: While parking at the university is not ideal, it’s not really bad, either. The most you have to walk is about .2 mile.)
Student: I walked to the Alumni Center yesterday to do my story instead of driving.
Me: Wow, that’s over half a mile away. Did you do it for the exercise?
Student: No, I didn’t want to lose my parking space.

You ever accidentally pick up the wrong kid from daycare but just roll with it because this one can actually wipe his own flipping nose?

After quizzing a student on AP style and her failing everything…
Student: Well, at least I can spell.
Me: Oh, really? Spell broccoli.
Student: B-R-O-C-C-O-L-L-I.
Me: That’s what I thought.

If you’re not on Facebook, people forget you even exist.

(on the phone with a very friendly female customer service rep while I was setting up a summer vaca)
CSR: You like Indian food? Wow, that’s awesome! So many Americans don’t. When you come on your vacation, I’ll have to make you some Indian food.
Me: Oh, you’re sweet!
CSR: Here, let me give you my cell.

Hey, guys? If you're at a preschool observing language in 4 year olds, and one of the moms asks you which kid is yours, don't try to be funny by responding with "I haven't decided yet." Here to help.

Look how cute my cousins are! Joke! I found these kids on the Internet. But aren't they exceptionally cute?

What’s worse than LSU clock management? Tennessee math.

Good night, everyone!

HAHA! Yes, I love it when I make your "quotes" post! Seriously, sometimes I'm like, "What can I say that's funny that will make Penny's favorite quotes post?" :D

The LSU/Tenn one? HIL-arious! (Wish I'd come up with that one.) :)
