It's my job to be different than the rest... (except that's a Mac-ism...)

We always say "I'm sittin' on G, waitin' on O" when one of us is ready and the other one ain't. I just love that line.

and when you're almost out of gas, you're "Drivin' on M, goin' on T"

Lame, I know. but I like it!

I quote John Lennon, 'I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me.' Good point there. After all, he was 'The Walrus'. I could be the walrus, but I'd still have to bum rides off of people.

When something goes wrong at work or home I'll say to myself "blew out my flip flop". To remedy the blow out I find that nothing works better then humming a little 'Ola ola, ola ola, ola ola, ola ola", I know it's not Jimmy but to me it means that he's not far away.

"if I couldn't laugh I just would go insane" ~ my favorite line ever

I know I'm not that old, but I'm still "growing older but not up"

and of course there's always "it's five o'clock somewhere" That usually gets a laugh out of my customers.

I tend to quote movies and Seinfeld. So, no real Buffettisms for me.

I sing "you're my brown eyed girl" to my daughter a lot. I know it's not a buffett song really, but the keets heard the original the other day and had a big fight about who really sings the song... oops. bad mom for not educating them on the originals!

When I'm waiting in a cross walk I always think about being "at the corner of walk and don't walk." there's always a different direction to go no matter where you are!

then there's the ass and the hole in the ground!!!! that gets used a lot!

I use so many Buffett-isms at work...now when I say something and someone is not sure what I am talking about, they ask "something to do with Buffett?"

I was just telling someone that I hope I make it to next Wednesday. When asked why, I said "because I complete another trip around the sun on Wednesday!" I could see the wheels turning as they tried to figure that one out as I walked away. 8)

When I worked in the corporate world I used to leave a sign on my door when I was on vacation that read

If the phone doesn't ring, it's me....

I now describe my past work life as 31 years of corporate confinement as a takeoff from Jimmy's frequent comment about his years of catholic confinement
