- To stop expecting things to fall into my lap.
- It's much worse to regret not doing something than doing something.
- Be positive- things will work their own way out.
- The meaning of the words quagmire and quixotic.
- That The Veils are a great band and the lead singer has the most amazing blue eyes second only to Hugh Laurie's.
- Some good jokes. Like this one:
A rich man and a poor man are buying birthday presents for their wives. The rich man says “I got my wife a brand new BMW and a diamond ring. That way, if she doesn’t like the ring, she can return it in the BMW and she’ll still be happy. The poor man replies “I got my wife a pair of slippers and a dildo. That way, if she doesn’t like the slippers, she can go fuck herself”.
