On the corner of my desk sits a tiny plastic figure of Eeyore. He's flat on his butt, looking forlorn, and holding his tail - which as fallen off. Again. (And he was incredibly dusty until I picked him up to write this post - but hey, I'll leave my poor housekeeping skills to another day.)
Eeyore is my favorite Winnie the Pooh character. Long, long ago, I was attracted to his whole dour, 'woe is me', pessimist schtick, and while I'm a much more positive person, I still love the dude.
In fact, I have some quotes from my old pal Eeyore to share with you today.
"This writing business. Pencils and what-not. Over-rated, if you ask me. Silly stuff. Nothing in it."
"When stuck in the river, it is best to dive and swim to the bank yourself before someone drops a large stone on your chest in an attempt to hoosh you there."
"They haven't got Brains, any of them, only grey fluff that's blown into their heads by mistake, and they don't Think."
Heh. That Eeyore. He kills me. So wise.
Who's your favorite Winnie the Pooh character?
