Fourteen Things That It Took Over 50 Years to Learn

Snagged from stilghar, who says it's from Dave Barry (although I suspect bits of it aren't):

  1. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

  2. If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be "meetings."

  3. There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

  4. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.

  5. You should not confuse your career with your life.

  6. Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.

  7. Never lick a steak knife.

  8. The most destructive force in the universe is gossip.

  9. You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe daylight savings time.

  10. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.

  11. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age eleven.

  12. The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above-average drivers.

  13. A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person. (This is very important. Pay attention. It never fails.)

  14. Your friends love you anyway.

Thought for the day:
Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.

LotR, The Musical?

Snagged from laurie_robey...


Tolkien fantasy to be a musical

THE Lord Of The Rings is to be turned into the West End's most
expensive musical in a lavish £8 million production.

The adaptation of JRR Tolkien's famous trilogy will open in London in
spring 2005.

Its budget is £1.5 million more than the capital's current most costly
musical, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

"This will be like nothing the West End has ever seen," said producer
Kevin Wallace, who has worked on several Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals.

"We are setting out to re-create Tolkien's fantasy world and it will
have a real sense of wonder and awe for the audience."


I just have visions of Gimli dancing around signing:

  I can't make the leap,
    (toss me, toss me)
  I'll end up in a heap
    (toss me, toss me)
  We'll kill those orcish creeps
    (toss me, toss me)
  For the honor of Helm's Deep
    (toss me, toss me!)
