    What serious lives people lead, my favourites form a picture of my outlook on life,

    Return to your own planet your job here on earth is done ( this is a wonderful putdown to someone who bores you )

    Never have sex with your wife in the morning in case something better comes along later.

    Remember when skating on thin ice speed is your friend.

    "Danger, Will Robinson!"

    -- Lost in Space


    I say this to my kids every so often, and of course they have no clue what I am referencing. One day one of them will happen across a stray episode of Lost in Space on some Nostalgia Channel and say, "OMG - THAT'S what my mom was talking about!"

    This is funny. It reminds me of a time long ago... I was driving our 1986 Pontiac 6000 with my 3 year-old-lilmissrosie and my 2 year-old-littlerocketscientist buckled safely in their carseats in the back seat.

    They would ask for this or that and I would say, "No." and they would say, "Why?"

    And I would break into song,

    "You can't always get what you want
    You can't always get what you want
    You can't always get what you want.
    But if you try some time, you might find,
    You get what you need...."

    Perplexed, they would stop asking for this or that.

    Years later, while driving along with lilmissrosie, lilrocketscientist strapped in their booster seats and littlerrocketscientist strapped in his carseat...

    A song came on the radio.

    The older two sat and listened for a minute and then said in unison, "HEY.  We know this song!"

    Kate, Yoda's line is one of my favorites!

    Rose, my DW does day care and the "you can't always get what you want" song is always in the cd player...works every time!

    One of my nearly bald H.S. math teachers used to say " your beginning to get in my hair, and I haven't got much left!"
