As much of a gadget freak as I may be, I love my Slingshot organizer. More than anything, I like having it around to quickly jot down info about things I see, films while I’m watching them, and, most importantly for this post, funny things people I’m spending time with say. Here’s a collection of quotations from the last year, mostly without attribution.
