"Because I could..." Tiger Woods on why he married Elin Nordgren.

Most of my favorite quotes are timeless. I'm racking my brains and can't thing of one specifically from this year. Hmm.

Woods actually SAID that? What an arse.

It's a great answer to a dumb question, though! lol. What a nerve if someone asked someone why they married a certain person? They automatically must think it wasn't for love. It might be a smart aleck way of responding, but whoever asked, deserved it.

'It's got to melt sometime.' - My comment on the longest freezing spell we've seen in Scotland for a very long time.

"What snow?"

My comment on the fact that Stafford has yet to have some of the white stuff (sticking anyway).

[Well we did have about 0.5cm just before Xmas Day which was nice but not nearly enough to build a snowman and it was gone within a day]

Favorite quote of 2009....has to be Michael Palin accepting the Bafta special award in NY in Oct. When asked jeeringly by Cleese if he had any regrets about his career, Palin answered, "I wish I'd been born a man. It's been a right battle pretending that I like dressing up in drag all the time." I have watched that clip about ten times, and laughed heartily at his quick wit. Easily the best quote of 2009.
