Tagline Hall of Fame

This post created on 1/18/05 for my personal use/reference only.

Here are some of the various taglines I've used with my site from time to time. You know, in case I want to recycle the brilliance some other time.

"The Cogent Thoughts and Musings of Kenna Fearing"
(general; I revert back to that when I don't have anything more cogent to say)

Sometime in 2004 ...

"Over XXX daily referrals from Brian Damage and counting!"

A nice quote from John Strain; I lost track of it.

September - October 2004
"I Do Throw A Fabulous Party Even If I Do Say So Myself"

November 2004 - January 18, 2005
"Susan Says: You can always count on me to tell you what you don't want to hear. Honesty sucks."

January 18, 2005 - January 27, 2005
"Susan Says: Only an idiot would think that e-mail correspondence is truly confidential."

January 27, 2005 - March 14, 2005
"Susan Says: Man, this guy has baggage that's just too heavy to lift, or drag."

March 14, 2005 - April 4, 2005
rigmor asks: "Is Hunter Thompson's suicide a canary in the coalmine?"

I stumbled on rigmor's blog via Meaghan's blog (Meaghan is Dan Tobin's wife) and as I skimmed a post I saw this quote. Just struck me.

April 4, 2005 - May 15, 2005
Word to the Wise: "Pain and suffering is optional."

Something that was said to me by Greg, the guy from the gym who offered to help me with my workouts. He was talking about some complex personal issues I'd just described to him, and it really struck me. This from a guy who says he's dyslexic and who has never read a book or written a paragraph. But he's lived - oh, how he's lived! - and learned along the way.

We should all be so lucky.

May 15, 2005 - September 6, 2005

"And all I need now is intellectual intercourse ..."

It's always been one of my favorite lines, from Alanis Morrisette's song "All I Really Want." Yes, that's all I really want - some intellectual intercourse.

September 6, 2005 - March 28, 2006

"I'm very discreet... but I will haunt your dreams."

Uttered by Paula, a character portrayed by Jane Lynch, in the movie "The 40 Year Old Virgin."

March 28, 2006 - January 2, 2007

"Winning a Grammy sure helped me get laid." Bonnie Raitt

I really loved the previous tagline, but it was time for something new, and I saw this on my "Wild Words from Wild Women" desktop calendar. Go Bonnie.

January 2, 2007 - December 27, 2007

"I've been critical of blogging, which I call literary dandruff." Patrick Dillon

Saw the quote on another blog - some lameass blog that was actually selected as a Blog of Note. Oh well, at least I snagged a good tagline.

December 27, 2007 -

"You can't count your days, but you can make your days count."
Harvey Mackay
