Life's too short . . .

I came across an article on the website of REAL SIMPLE, one of my favorite magazines. I'll copy and paste part of it here: (Actually this is from the blog by the editor, Kristin van Ogtrop). (I think you'll like it).
The Life's-Too-Short List
Some years ago writer Shirley Conran observed that life's too short to stuff a mushroom. I think about that quote all the time and now, in the spirit of New Year's resolutions, I present my own very subjective and by no means exhaustive list.
In my book, life's too short to:
iron cloth napkins
care why Britney Spears is so screwed up
start a plant from seed, unless it's a morning glory
finish a book I don't like
use cloth diapers
boycott boxed macaroni and cheese
go to the office on the weekend
keep a friend who is not nice to me
read more than one article about the impact of Hillary almost crying in New Hampshire.

I (mm jw) could add to that. I bet you could, too.

i always feel bad not finishing books, but Shirley is right, I shouldn't waste my time on bad books. Hmph.
