I really like THIS project at Make and Takes for a, "Family Motto" board. I can't however come up with anything better than Mr. ETB's suggestion of, "You Can't Kill Us All. OK Fine, You Can." Better to put it to the readers.

You have until 1 January 2012 to enter your suggestions in the comments. The best one will be selected by myself. The winner will get a jar of homemade marmalade, jam or whatnot.

If you've been reading this blog for any length of time, you probably know that we're not the, "Daily Affirmation" kind of people unless it begins with, "Everyone I ever hurt...deserved it." You earn points if it makes me laugh.

Let's see what you guys can come up with.

muwahaha. I have several.

"If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague."

"It may be your sole purpose in life to serve as a warning to others."

"Some days you are the pigeon, and some days you are the statue"

And my favorite is,
"Always read stuff that makes you look good, in case you die in the middle of it"

I have a list of these hanging in my workspace. I like Mr. ETB's suggestion too.

For your family I suggest:

"Credo quia absurdum est."

[I believe it because it is absurd.]

I used to attach this to the bottom of all my emails.

"Eat your butter."

"No nuts in this house."

Janice said...

"Like it or not, we serve as inspiration for others"

Raymond said...

'This ain't East Boston.'

(or variations upon:

'We ain't in East Boston.'

'Toto, I think we're not in Eastie anymore.'

We relish your opinion. Then serve it back to you on toast.
