11:11- make a wish!!!

I was a little bit taller, I wish I was a baller, I wish I had a girl who looked good, I would call her- I was I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat and 6-4 impala.

I wish that Elizabethtown had 2 different co-stars other than the unlikable Kirsten Dunst and the faked American accent of Orlando Bloom. (Bradley & Bradley give it one thumb up)

I wish it were lunchtime- mmmmm- Cozy Mel’s here I come!!

I wish it were still 80 degrees today.

I wish I were an Oscar Meyer weiner.

I wish it were 5 o’clock so I could be through with my work week.

what do you wish?

I wish I may, I wish I might, I wish upon a star tonight!

You know, my dad's mom, Granny Brown, used to retort the following when one of us sighed "I wish": Wish in one hand and sh*t in the other...which one do you have more of?

While we're on the subject of wishes, my proud sorority, ADPi, used to say "I wish for you,(insert name of rushee here),(fill-in-the-blank warm fuzzies here)" during the bridge of the popular rush song, "Pass it on." It always worked. It made girls cry and then want to sign their lives away to ADPi. Example: I wish for you, Amanda, the love, special memories and fun times that I found in Alpha Delta Pi!

It only takes a spark...

... to get a fire going. and soon all those around will warm up to its glowing. That's how it is with Delta Zee, once you've experienced it.

yeah- that was our Candle Pass song. And while I loved the ceremony of it all, I was secretly bitter because I knew I was never going to have a Candle Pass ceremony of my own.

(for the GDI's out there, you have a candle pass to reveal a girl who has been lavaliered [a frat guy has given her his letters] or if she has gotten engaged.)

And that's what you pay the money for- to learn all these secret terms and songs.

I wish we had the freakin' ESPNU channel so we wouldn't have to stay up past midnight to watch our beloved 'Cats play!

Amanda said...

nice of you to join us, Barry. And that's a great wish. Wish I had thought of it myself. but then i guess that's just wishful thinking. ;o)

I wish the That Ain't Right blog would feature a new posting. :(

I wish people wouldn't call rap "poetry" ("rhymes," on the other hand, perfectly accurate).

I wish every music artist could be as brilliant as Ben Folds--without the potty mouth.

I wish every animated film could be as imaginative as "The Incredibles" (just saw it).

Instead of halls of "fame" I wish we had halls of "talent."

I wish Jimmy Kimmel Live didn't come on so late.

I wish people (including professional announcers who should know better) wouldn't pronounce "short-lived" with the short "i" as in "give," as opposed to the correct (in my opinion, which I'd be glad to defend) long "i," as in "life."

I wish the marketing geniuses at Trident would stop trying to justify their jobs by messing around with perfectly good gum flavors.

I wish someone could slap (or talk or whatever it takes) some sense into Tom Cruise and/or Katie Holmes, along with everyone else who allows himself to be sucked into a stupid and dangerous cult like Scientology (see www.tomcruiseisnuts.com and www.xenu.net).

I wish we could turn our focus from Osama Bin Laden to our nation's real enemies (on a spiritual and cultural level), like Jerry Springer. Might require a different defense, but then....

I wish, the next time Pat Robertson wants to pronounce judgment on a group of people such as the town of Dover, that he'd e-mail them privately instead of broadcasting it to the whole world, who are justifiably taking him less seriously by the day.

Better, I wish so many evangelical Christians didn't encourage him to make such unbiblical, ungracious and idiotic comments in the first place by continuing to watch him.

I wish everyone would read this interview with Bono:

I wish I had a job that was so exhilarating and soul-consuming and fulfilling (financially and otherwise) that I didn't have time to notice Amanda hasn't blogged since Friday.

I wish wishing were as effective as actually, you know, doing something about it. Yep, sure do wish.
