Over the years, here and there, I've collected sayings that are goofy or sideways or backwards and just sound like things Paige would say. Whether I ever use them or not isn't really important; they're fabulous Paige quotes anyway. Here are some of the most recent ones, just lines on scraps of paper I found in my living room. I'll have to hunt down the rest.

  • We're not alone here. I just wish I knew what we're not alone with.
  • That's a very good combination, just not together.
  • Just relax and smile. It's funner if you enjoy it.
  • I understand it; it just doesn't make sense.
  • I don't know if I still don't want it.


I know I'll be able to use some of these, somewhere in the story...

  • Do you have to be so mean while you're being mean? Can't you do it nicely?



I know I've got more of 'em on slips of paper here and there around the house. I'll post 'em as I find 'em. Anybody got any more Paigisms? Add 'em!

I love these.

Maybe I'll see if I can come up with any for you...

“I told you so!”

“Huh? No you didn’t.”

“Well, I didn’t want to ruin the surprise for everyone else, but in my head I told you so!”

(this may be more of a Jasperism than a Paigeism, but it still belongs in this thread)

Also, just so I don't forget....

Jasper was saying something lumpy and dramatic, then it was time for fists.

No, it is definitely more of a Paigeism than a Jasperism, but I suppose Jasper has spent enough time around Paige that he could use it. :lol:

Well, I think it was the "I didn't want to ruin it..." part that made me think Jasper instead of Paige. I don't think Paige would hold back an I-told-you-so for much of any reason. Jasper, on the other hand, refrains from saying things all the time. As for 'he's been around her long enough'... where do you think Paige learned it? :P

A possible Morgan line.... our very own Suppress-o Boy:


If I had to do something about all my emotions I'd never get anything done because I'd always be doing something!

I wrote a new line on The Wall of Fame last night, and noticed an old line that really belongs as a Paigeism in its own right. How I managed to not include it before I've no idea. So here it is:

This game would be more fun if you could actually think.

Thank you, Travis, for that brilliant insight into... I believe it was one of the board games we were building for MisCon. Probably Royal Game of Ur, which only involves a little bit of strategy instead of a lot. Or maybe Senet. Whatever. It was a good line, and a Paigeism at that.

More:
  • (I'm popular... with pain. Pain is not a good person to be popular with. Of course, there are worse people than pain to be popular with.) Not everyone who isn't pain is a good person!
  • It's quiet enough that I can hear myself think. Trouble is, I don't want to hear what I'm thinking right now! (Morgan, probably...)
  • It's weird that it's weird, but there it is: it's weird.
  • Shhhhh... I'm being thinky!

  • If it's so unspeakable, why are you talking about it?

I found these last night scrawled on post-its on my bedside table. Don't know how long they'd been there, though the first line I know I've known for a long time...

  • I might have to kill you for your own safety.
  • It's a lot easier to resist temptation when there isn't any.
  • You've made the end of my life worth living.

What should I do?

Nothing.

I can do that. I do nothing really well. Which is not to say I don't do anything well...
