Random CWIS quotes

So I'm going through my CWIS notes trying to clean up some stuff, and I found a TON of CWIS quotes. These are pretty awesome, and by far the most random in the history of CWIS. Brianna, you are probably the only one that will get most of these....since most of them came from the infamous press conference and our notes. :P

"My brain hurts!"
"Was Scooter Libby convicted?" "I don't know...was he?" "I'm asking you: Was he? "Was he?" "That's right, was he?" "Was he?" "Was he or was he not?" "Um......" "It's not that hard...yes, no, or maybe!!"
"God bless the Aide-De-Camps!!"
"I am so confused"
"I was going to say 'so far, so good', but...."
"Graham's Jeopardy music set an appropriate setting for the evening."
"How long have we been here?" "Forever and Always!"
"Senator three under par"
"What part of this bill DO you oppose?" "Huh?"
"Kids are interested in medicine???"
"It's non-permanent."
"Does that include body waxing?" "Oh gosh, no!"
"One of us is a senator from Texas." "Thanks for clarifying that."
"I actually haven't said this yet."
"You could practically go out and find it on the street!" "Have you ever done that?" "Um...yeah."
"It's not as addicting as your morning coffee!"
""Would you let terrorists smoke only irradiated marijuana?" "Um..." "While being forced shaved?"
"Not in the case of the Danes, the Swedes, the British, the..."
"Are you a rogue CIA agent?"
"We are going to die"
"It'll be a little problem"
"What on earth?? That is so dumb and rude! 2 hours before the mock they are taking the best people and forming a super-caucus??? What was that?!?!??!?"
"We need to come together!" "Diversity, man!"
"He's hot...wait, that TOTALLY came out wrong..."
"Undying/Unrequited love"
"What the heck does Ben have in his mouth?" "It looks like a battery..." "Yeah. Stupid! My first thought was 'cigar?'" "Or he's over there smoking cannabis" "lol...and you can find it on the street." "'s a pen cap!" "Ok, now I feel dumb!"
"I asked him if he was looney."
"even if they are tortured and returned to their own country after the torture.." "Is that possible?"
"Joel needs to shave"
"and he thinks I'M random???"
"If they are willing to kill, why would losing a finger matter?"
"It's a rip-off."
"What exactly IS bio-piracy?"
"I have free speech!!"
"Are you cold or is it just us? "Kinda sorta." "In other words, it's just us." "Fosho" "Wow...I didn't realize you were so gangsta!" "Gangsta?" "Wow..."
"Human sniffing-dogs or human-sniffing dogs?"
"How is this enforced? "Wonderful face." "A wonderful face enforces it?" "No comment." "That's technically a comment." "No comment on that, either." "We have really lame conversations..."
"The girls were great. The guys...pathetic."
"I hate my camera!"
"Maybe the thunder was caused by Austin's communication with his aliens... :)"
"What happened to 30 seconds?"
"Thank you, and I would strongly urge you to vote for this bill." "...That was incredibly awesome"
"We commend you, Amanda!"
"Mom: 'So, what did you do at camp?" "Tyler: 'I did extensive research on torture!"
"Bill Nine, the Science guy"
And of course, no CWIS quote list would be complete without the "What about 6 o'clock?" - "Oh! that's the torture bill.....zzzzzzzz"

Ok, I have a question for y'all: How do you deal with a 15 year old who cusses like nothing else? Particularly a 15 year old male that's about twice my size. One of my cousins has been cussing for awhile (and I'm not talking about occasionally and only 'light' cuss words, I'm talking about whenever his parents aren't around to hear it and serious foul language) and his sister asked that I speak to him about it. Thoughts?

Dancing Through Life

Liz and I have decided that we officially have a love/hate relationship with technology. Her computer went on the spritz the other day, causing her to call me instead of iming me. Then, one of our phone connections was messed up while we were talking. Life would be sooooo much more simpler if it weren't for our technology, but how in the world could we survive? I love my computer, and rarely go anywhere without my cellphone.

I went to Meredith's senior day last Friday. I have to admit that after spending time there, I really actually want to go there. I never thought I'd say that, but I love the campus and the teachers and students really seemed to want me there. Plus, it has one of the top English programs in the nation. We'll see what happens. I'm touring William and Mary as well as University of Richmond the end of October.

Where were you?

So where were you six years ago?

I can still remember that day like it was yesterday. I was 11. Mom was sitting in the living room folding laundry on the couch. I was sitting on the floor reading. The phone rang, and it was my aunt. I can remember her asking mom if she had the tv on. When mom told her no, she said to cut it on.

I didn’t completely understand what was going on at first. I knew that planes had just hit the WTC, but didn’t know what that meant for Americans. I watched in horror as not one, but 2 planes hit. Finally, I couldn’t handle the images anymore. I ran to my room, and turned on the radio. I ran back into the living room when I heard the 1st tower fall.

And then the Pentagon...

That night, our church held a candlelight vigil. I can remember standing in church, surrounded by both friends, regular church attendees, and people I’m sure had never seen the inside of a church. Black, white, poor, rich, farmer, didn't matter. We were all united.

Where were you?

Have You Forgotten?
