"I want to perform an unnatural act."

- Lenny Bruce



"I get a kick out of being an outsider constantly. It allows me to be creative. I don't like anything in the mainstream and they don't like me."

- Bill Hicks



"I don’t like ass kissers, flag wavers or team players. I like people who buck the system. Individualists. I often warn people: “Somewhere along the way, someone is going to tell you, ‘There is no “I” in team.’ What you should tell them is, ‘Maybe not. But there is an “I” in independence, individuality and integrity.’” Avoid teams at all cost. Keep your circle small. Never join a group that has a name. If they say, “We’re the So-and-Sos,” take a walk. And if, somehow, you must join, if it’s unavoidable, such as a union or a trade association, go ahead and join. But don’t participate; it will be your death. And if they tell you you’re not a team player, congratulate them on being observant."

-George Carlin



"The more I see, the less I know for sure."

- John Lennon

Such a Pretty Fat:  One Narcissist's Quest to Discover If Her Life Makes Her Ass Look Big; Or, Why Pie Is Not the Answer - Jen Lancaster The author's obsession with food was actually pretty alarming. I admired her tenacity and commitment to exercise, though. I know from experience that it's tough to stick to a workout routine.My biggest pet peeve is the writing style. I don't mind laid-back, conversational prose, but there was the constant use of a question that wasn't a question, with the answer being the following sentence. That writing style? Gets annoying very quickly.Also her friends are incredibly annoying, or at least they seemed that way in one particular chapter in which nothing happened.I'd stick with Bitter is the New Black, myself.
