I have a notebook called “Quotes” in Evernote, where I put all the quotes that I find that might come in useful someday, such as on One-Liner Wednesday. I went searching for something and found this, which I might have used in the past, but that’s neither here nor there. I’m pretty certain that I came up with the line back in my “John, the Fiction Writer” days. If you can use it, be my guest.
One-Liner Wednesday is brought to you each week by Linda Hill and this station. Now a word about Jell-o Instant Pudding, the terrific new “busy-day” dessert!
One of the blogs I follow is the one for Apartment Therapy, for no other reason than I like to look at places where people live. They have other kinds of articles as well, including this one from Sunday, “Why You Should Keep an Extra Clothes Hanger in Your Living Room,” a tip for decorating with clothes hangers. This was one of those articles where the comments are more entertaining than the article itself. I particularly liked this one.

I think this is a Canadian commercial, although we had Esso stations in the US.
Daniel Burnham was an architect and urban planner who was the Director of Works for the Columbian Exhibition, which took place in Chicago in 1893. He was one of the chief architects of the “White City,” the subject of Erik Larson’s 2004 novel The Devil In The White City. As an urban planner, he was responsible for the 1909 Plan Of Chicago, better known as The Burnham Plan of Chicago, which was one of the first large-scale plans for urban development. This brief video talks about it.

I had this habit a while back where I would see a good quote, put it into a suitable-for-framing Word document, and save it in my Documents folder. Then I’d forget all about it. One day I decided to clean out my Documents folder and found all of them, so I put them in Evernote and discarded the original file. Occasionally, when I’m stuck looking for a particularly pithy comment, I go through that Evernote notebook. I found this in there.
I didn’t know (or couldn’t remember) who Jane Wagner was, so I looked her up and discovered she’s Lily Tomlin’s writer. Sounds like Lily, doesn’t it?

Now a word from Crest toothpaste. Have regular checkups, watch between-meal treats, and brush often with Crest, and you’ll have 21% fewer cavities!
I think that statement from the American Dental Association is on practically every other toothpaste…
If you’ve been reading the blog here, you know that I participate in One-Liner Wednesday, brought to you by Linda Hill and this station. And you might have seen where we have a contest running right now to select a new badge to represent our little weekly project. I came up with an entry:
Today is the day we vote on all the entries, and I have to say there’s some very stiff competition. The page that has links to all the contestants and the form on which to vote (which for some reason didn’t show up for me: I suspect my ad blocker) can be found here on Linda’s blog. Please, even if you don’t participate in One-Liner Wednesday, head on over there, look at all the entries, and vote for the one you like best. Thanks, and best of luck to all the contestants!
