Fun and Quirky Time Wasters - Cheeky Quote Day! 9 Dec 2009

From Denny: The best grinners in Life are often those quirky odd situations, odd fashions in clothing or hair and quirky comments people say. Well, looks like I managed to fulfill two out of three! :) These funny quirky quotes definitely qualify as proper time wasters worthy of your time - especially on Monday mornings as work quotes to cheer you through the week.

As you can tell I've been playing with holiday animations. You can join the fun too as I put a lot of the ones I like best into one post over at my photo blog, Visual Insights, and the link to them.
