Movie quotes that could double as essay feedback! Bonus points if you can ID the movies…
1. “You keep using that word. I do not think that word means what you think it means.” (duh! You knew this would be first, right?)
2. “I’m sorry; were you being funny?”
3. “What the fuck is this?”
4. “That was reckless, that was stupid, and that was dangerous.”
5. “Wake up! I need you to be focused!”
6. “Any last words? Come on, spit it out!”
7. “Hi. Do you speak English?”
8. “There’s no way that should’ve worked!”
9. “Perhaps we are asking the wrong questions.”
10. “This is your worst fuck up ever.”
Today, I’m happy for Bruder.
He arrived last night to come and spend the week at the lake (for the record, this will be our fifth year with this vacation tradition). We all love him with a kind of easy ferocity (I know that sounds contrary, but it’s not) and I’m always delighted to have him with us.
This is a picture of Bruder and Bean, looking at fish in the lake in 2010. We call it the “zombie picture” because, well, they look like they could be mumbling “BRAIIINS” over the edge of the dock, don’t they?
Oh, my GOD! THIS? This is AWESOME!
Tonks directed me to this a few weeks ago, and it hasn’t lost any of its funny for me.
Dropping cats into snowbanks is a long and treasured tradition in the Chili household. Don’t feel too badly for old Toeses; he got a healthy dose of cream for his troubles.
The bit you didn’t hear Mr. Chili say was “it SNOWED today!” It takes a second between when I hit the start button and when the phone starts recording. Sorry ’bout that.
Also? Here’s Chez Chili in the snow. Pretty, no?
We’ve promised the girls that we’d TiVo all the holiday specials for them. That got me reminiscing.
While I think that my favorite character in a holiday special is Yukon Cornelius (“Bumbles BOUNCE!”), a close second is the Winter Warlock in Santa Claus is Coming to Town. What’s funny about this is that my favorite scenes from the specials is in exactly the opposite order; Winter Warlock stars in the first, and Yukon is in my second. I did a quick search of YouTube and, lo!, the Warlock scene is available!
Sadly, I couldn’t find the “LAND HO!” scene from Rudolph, but you all know the one I’m talking about….
Today has been spent cooking. I’ve got a mess of buckeyes cooling their little chocolate jackets in the garage, a batch of chocolate crinkle cookie dough solidifying in the fridge, and a batch of fudge cooling on the counter. I’ll likely make another batch tonight, after we get back from the annual creches viewing at Katie’s. Watch this space for pictures…
