Rave’s Random Ramblings – Volume 1

Stupid Cathy!:

Against my better judgment, I always read the comic strip “Cathy”, by Cathy Guisewite.  I find it to be THE most annoying comic strip of ALL time, but I can’t help but read it.  Maybe it’s the simple drawings, or maybe I just like to read it and get angry – I don’t know.  Even my kids would refer to it as Stupid Cathy, because that’s how I would read it to them, when they were little.  She’s kind of like the Howard Stern of the comics page.  She takes one joke, usually a small and often unfunny joke, and just runs it into the friggin’ ground!  I’m celebrating because she just recently got off of a 3 week jag on women’s boots!  I can’t imagine even the most shoe obsessed female finding this amusing after the first week or so.  Thankfully, she’s moved on to a Thanksgiving/cooking theme.  So far, it’s not funny either, but I continue to read it!

Interesting quote:

Yesterday’s Thought for Today, in the newspaper was:  Education is a private matter between the person and the world of knowledge and experience, and has little to do with school or college.”   — Lillian Smith Think of it.  Some of the brightest and most successful people in the world did not attend college, and some were even high school drop-outs.  Now, I would never encourage anybody NOT to get as good an education as possible/practical, but we need to get over this glorification – and perverse fascination – of an education pedigree.  Some of the most narrow-minded and boring dolts have some kind of letters following their names, while some of the most interesting people could be fixing your plumbing, installing your cable . . . or raising chickens.

That’s all for today, kids!
