I Need Some New Cliches

TGIF!
Tonight we are going to see The Village with friends and go eat at Mongolian Palace (Noodles: below). I love Fridays they are so full of hope and promise of fun and splendor. Hope you all have a marvelous weekend :)

Cliches
In talking too all my friends and loved ones with all the many woes of life, I find myself saying things like "the grass is always greener", "time will tell", "Can't win em' all", "do unto others", "it's five o'clock somehwere" and soon and soforth. So many other re-occuring incidents of life deserve some catchy sayings as well. Here are a few I have been tossing around......

Saying: At least he doesn't beat you or snort heroin (coined by my mom)
Meaning: When you are feeling bad about your situation with your man (or woman), you can always use this uplifting saying to make you feel just a little better.
Saying: Don't discuss, politics, religion, money, fake christmas trees, Arizona, or low carb diets in mixed company
Meaning: This is just some solid advice if you want to avoid sparking heated debates
Saying: At least you weren't as drunk as (insert name) that time at (insert place)
Meaning: A way to console someone after a regretful night of drinking like a lush and acting a fool
Anymore?

We can all benefit from the Golden Rule, Do Unto Others As You Would Have Others Do Unto You. Nah, I'm just fucking around. Personally, the one I use the most, especially at work, I stole from the Lion King: Sometimes bad things happen.
That pretty much sums it up.

I remembered an example of when this was appropriate! Michelle (of the rabies fame) actually complained to me "Oh my god, I picked up Taylor at daycare today and James had put her hair in pigtails and the ponytail holders didn't match!" I couldn't help but tell her "Hey Michelle, sometimes bad things happen." I think I got quite a dirty look.
