"Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, Choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players, and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol and dental insurance. Choose fixed- interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisure wear and matching luggage. Choose a three piece suite on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who you are on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing sprit- crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pishing you last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked-up brats you have spawned to replace yourself. Choose your future. Choose life... But why would I want to do a thing like that?"

I love that quote... I was thinking the other day of how I could incorporate that into a blog post... Kelly Clarkson? Really??

Sadie Lou said...

I'm with Laura--i read that the whole tag and the one thing I came away with was--kelly Clarkson, are you kidding me?
I guess I can see why but I would have pegged you for a different celeb crush.
Thanks for the tag, I'll get right on it.

Laura -- Yeah, Trainspotting's one of my favorite movies and I've always loved that quote because it gives voice to just a little bit of my personality that doesn't want to grow up, doesn't want to be domesticated, doesn't want to buy into consumerism.

Laura and Sadie -- I have absolutely no explanation for the Clarkson infatuation. But the first step is admitting I have a problem. lol

I did your taggie-poo

Mountain Dew?
Kelly Clarkson??!!


I may have to reconsider your invitation for Thursday!

Vern -- Guilty as charged on 3 of the 4. But, I think you are taking GWB to be George W. GWB is actually the great and wise Great White Bear.

Sadie Lou said...

You would love this sushi restaurant that recently opened here. My parents took me and my sisters for part of our Christmas present. If you click on my Flickr banner--you can see pics from that night. They made a Sushi dish called The looked like a dragon. Crazy.

dbackdad said...

Sadie -- great pics! You're right, I would probably love that restaurant.
