Anyways, I don't have anything to write about so I'm just going to post some of my favorite Dr. Suess quotes, why...because they are awesome and if he was still alive he would be 107 today, which is old. And aren't you all so lucky...not only will you get to read these awesome quotes, but you can also read some awesome commentary by me! Stephen Pelletier! Yay!
Anyways, read these...they will make your day better.
“You are you. Now, isn't that pleasant?”I can't tell whether he is being sarcastic or not, but I like to think I'm a relatively pleasant person. Except for when I don't get my chocolate fix. Although, I'm happy that every time I walk into Rosebery now they get really excited because I'm going to repulsively buy things (usually chocolaty or peary) I don't (necessarily) need.
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”
Today I did some reading for Shakespeare. It made me hungry, so I went and ate some cookies, then went and ate two bananas, then a sandwich, then some salad, then the rest of the cookies. See where reading took me today?
“Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.”So, I'm living in London today, and tomorrow I'm going to be living in London still, and then this weekend I'm going to Cardiff, then my family is coming, then I'm still living in London and then I'm backpacking Europe. Wow, Dr. Suess, you are right!
“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities.”I like nonsense too. For example, back when I was in Scotland I was sitting in the Lounge and this guy walks in, walks over to the fish tank and said, "OH! FISHY FISHY FISHY! FISHY, FISHY, OH FAT FISHY!" and then turned around and walked out the door. I love life sometimes. Also, while on a train going to Bruges I saw a guy walking around in the train station wearing a chicken suit. Loved it!
“Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the things you can think up if only you try!”Just make sure that when you are in London you think right first, otherwise you might get hit by a car. Then go for the other stuff.
“If you never did you should. These things are fun and fun is good”If he is talking about making Green Eggs and Ham I'm out, if he is talking about going to Castle Tuesday every Tuesday, I'm in.
"And when they played they really played. And when they worked they really worked."
The best advice I ever got in cooking was from my dad, while he was making meatballs a couple of days before I left. He said, "Always add more." I think this applies to life too. Don't just live. Go out and really live, because when else are we going to get to do this whole crazy thing? Keep adding more, do more, feel more, relax more, appreciate more, laugh more, love more...whatever it is, do it more (except mean things...don't do those more). By the way, those meatballs came out amazing.

I always got this sense after reading the book that there are certain things in life just not worth passing up. Its really important that you take some chances, go outside your comfort zone and do the things you imagined yourself doing. Dr. Suess also spoke of not being able to sleep because reality is better than your dreams. Aim for that. Why not? http://www.teamhope.com/seuss.htm (it is better with the pictures)
|The last book I read before coming to London was "Oh! The Places You'll Go!"|
I could go on and on with these quotes: but you should all look up Suessisms! They are awesome and really great pick me ups.
By the way, it is March. Look at my calendar!
Talk to you all soon-
