Are You Kidding?

Seriously? I have to write a blog today? I don't wanna....but I will because I am committed to this project. Boo ya.

This is going to be SUPER short today because I have to go to work in about a half an hour and as soon as I get home I'm heading to a little party at my friend Erica's house. I'm sure I'll get home too late to use the computer, so this is really the only time I have. Anti-Squee. (Not about hanging out with my friends, but about being at work all day.)

Today's blog is just a random fact about me that you may not have known before:
I am a connoisseur of movie quotes. I love quoting them in my everyday conversation, despite the fact that most of the time no one catches the quote; they just think I'm being particularly strange. It's great though.

I just had a great idea: I'm going to include one of my favorite random movie quotes at the end of every blog now along with my under-appreciated vocabulary word.

Hopefully I'll have time to write up a proper blog tomorrow.

Under-Appreciated Vocabulary Word of the Day:
oneiric (adj): of or pertaining to dreams

Random Movie Quote for Your Entertainment:
"Do you know who I ABSOLUTELY adore; who I just want to...wrap up and put in my pocket?!"
--Mrs. Elton in "Emma"


  1. I wish I could remember something well-enough to quote it. But, I have a horrendous memory, so I'd probably botch anything and everything.

  2. "So which of the painted peacocks is our Mr. Bingly?"
    "Well, he's on the right, and on the left is his sister."
    "And the person with the quizzical brow?"
    "THAT is his good friend Mr. Darcy."
    "He looks miserable, poor soul!"
    "Miserable he may be, but poor he most certainly is not!"
    "Tell me."
    "10,000 a year AND he owns half of Derbyshire."
    "The miserable half?"

    Me and my friend Melody DO NOT STOP quoting, haha, I love it!! I think I have just about all of Pride and Prejudice memorized, hah.

  3. holy CRAP, i just watched you singing the National Anthem and you have a GORGEOUS voice!! your control is just amazing! well done!!

  4. You are too cool. I rarely remember movie quotes so they would probably go over my head constantly if we were to talk. :(

    I didn't want to write a blog today either but for commitment's sake we most persevere. Take it from Persius, "He conquers who endures." And to quote Gracchus in "Gladiator," "He enters Rome like a conquering hero. But what has he conquered?"
    (S)he has conquered BEDA!

  5. I usually don't remember quotes unless it's related to the moment. And I'll often want to quote a show or even YT vids, but then realize no one will get what I'm quoting (at least around my family, but my sis is getting more of the YT ones).

    My favorite quote for the past year or so, though, is from The African Queen: *in German accent* "By the authority vested in me by Kaiser William II, I pronounce you man and wife. Proceed with the execution!"
