Sometimes the best conversations are the ones you hear "in passing". That's right.

I'm talking to all you nosy folks, who, if you are like me, can't resist leaning toward the next table in a restaurant, or with the advent of the cellphone, you can also hear some mighty strange snippets if yer paying attention--

so thanks to another bout of insomnia, and my newfound lovechild site, www.burryman.com--I  got a few hours of laughs thanks to this blog from a lady known simply as "eve", who seems to share my warped sense of humor and appreciation for the absurd:
http://www.inpassing.org/

Lotsa giggles and head scratchers here folks, and I still haven't read the entire archive, but it's well worth the browse.

One of my favorites:

I read this so late into last night that my eyes began to develop some weird faraway tunnel vision thing, that i couldn't shake, but didn't want to stop reading. so i didn't stop. That Eve woman deserves a medal.

I love being nosey. i love people.

Thanks Karen!

Hey gorgeous gem!

I lost my place in that forum so I started reading from back to front--

and I just fell in love with this:

"I am on the verge of insanity knocking on the door of truth. The door opens and I find I've been knocking from the inside."
--Written on a blackboard outside of my math final


awesome! And having just been there, I can grin too.

Serenity: This is one from out of my stupid mouth to the top new director. I passed him in the hall on my way out in the morning as he was coming in. I had not yet met him formaly.  

me:
" Good morning, are you who I think you are?"
he: "I don't know, who do you think I am?"
me: "I'm not sure, who do you think you are"

That sounded so cocky and I sure as hell did not mean to be. LOL martyjo

Hey,
Is this little pity party still going, cause I'd like to join in. I overheard more than I could handle today:

Wrong Ending


If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.
