Best of 2010: Quotes

You may remember yesterday’s post on my reflections on the food trends amidst the blogosphere in 2010.

Today, I thought I’d indulge you with some of my favorite quotes of the year:

1) “I thought it was gum.” — Paris Hilton, denying responsibility for packet of cocaine Las Vegas police found in her bag.

2) “I don’t smoke, I hardly drink, I’m a nice girl, I’m a good mum. I’m not having wild sex parties with strangers, so part of me feels entitled to have some trifle.” — British TV presenter, Vanessa Feltz, explains why she is 260 lbs.

3) “This is a big fucking deal.” — US vice-president Joe Biden to Barack Obama at signing into law of the historic US healthcare program. Don’t ask me why, but this makes me feel safer about the future healthcare.

4) Eden is a French macaron—and not just  because she’s got amazingly exquisite features. The girl is one smart cookie. She’s so special that she’s extremely finicky to make and freaking expensive, but so worth every effort and time.– The witty, wise, and wonderful Sophia from burp and slurp. Hear that? This frugal jew is “expensive”.

5) ”I was also going to give a graduation speech in Arizona this weekend. But with my accent, I was afraid they would try to deport me.”  — Soon to be ex-California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger

6) “So, food will always be a weird thing, but those with food ‘issues’ aren’t weird. In fact, I think we’re rather great, don’t you?”– The AB-solutly fabulous Abby. And yes, we are rather great (and weird 😉 )

7) “Can we go back to using Facebook for what it was originally for – looking up exes to see how fat they got?”– Tweet from Bill Maher

8) “Dating you is like dating a stair-master”–Erica Albright to Mark Zuckerberg from the movie, “The Social Network”.

9) “Few children of famous people succeed. Most of them are little shits.” — Jamie Oliver, TV chef and celebrity childcare guru.

10) “I don’t believe you can ever really cook unless you love eating.” — Nigella Lawson

  1. Hehe.. these are cute 🙂
    Sadly I don’t have anything to add, because my memory is about as good as a goldfish’s. I will say that the Paris Hilton quote will probably go down in history… and I bet there will be many girls who seriously think the line will work and put it in effect if they have to.

  2. I laughed at that Arnold quote. I really was never a fan of him as a governor (governator) but that quote warms my heart just a little bit. His accent is my favorite. Silly Arizona.

    I don’t even know of any great quotes from this year. Now I need to do some research.

  3. Hahahahaha – this post definitely made me laugh.
    A 2010 quote?
    “When I wake up in the morning, I feel just like any other insecure 24-year-old girl. Then I say, ‘Bitch, you’re Lady Gaga, you get up and walk the walk today.'”
    – Lady Gaga, to Rolling Stone

  4. I LOVE the Arnold quote. This is one of the reasons why I cannot bring myself to hate the man.

    I also like what the witty, wonderful Sophia said. Who IS that fucking amazing girl? She was damn right! 😀

  5. haha i’m commenting on this one because it was the most recent but i seriously loved your blog food of 2010 post! i totally hopped on the peanut flour bandwagon but i’m okay with that. as for larabars? eh never liked them never will. i think if i wanted peanut butter and jelly then i’m just gonna have peanut butter and jelly haha

  6. Every time I have a field research session, we compile “quotes of the trip” while we wait in the airport on the way home. This last trip (earlier this month), my one of my top ones was: “I dropped the keys down the f*ing ravine and now a tree is eating me!”

    The tree did not, in fact, eat me, but it damn well tried and I think I’m going to have scars as a result. But I did get my keys out of the f*ing ravine…

    Great post!
